Gillian Anderson, December 2, 2001 Cracked Xmas benefit for The Trevor Project, which focuses on crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth.

I think it affects me because of my own struggles as a teenager. I don’t know if I would have used a hotline at that time, so I know what it feels like to be stranded, to not be able to pick up the phone and not trust that that’s gonna help and to not trust there will be somebody trustworthy on the other line that understands. I think it just reminds me. Just a constant reminder of what that was like. If it is about growing up in a town or in a family that is intolerant of one’s inner self, whether it’s a parent or friends or the neighborhood, I mean, it’s like, that is supposed to be your safety. That is supposed to be where you learn who you are and learn what you stand for and learn that everything is okay so that you can find that place and then go out into the world. And if it’s a bad place, there is no safety and there is judgment and there is fear, and the potentiality for a very difficult and shaky and confused and lonely life is there. So nipping it in the bud really early is a real good thing.

“People can sing every note he played” By Bob Geldof

The Telegraph, 1 December 2001

“There aren’t many people whose passing can make the entire planet feel sad. But George is one such person. I first met him when I was eight. My sister had taken me to a hotel where the Beatles were staying and we snuck in.

They were very cute, answering their fan letters - something I’ve never seen since in the pop industry. Paul was terribly friendly. Ringo was kidding about. But George was grumpy which was perfect because that’s how you expected him to be.

You could tell he was thinking, ‘Why won’t these kids get out of here.’ He was always the reluctant Beatle. Though he looked amazing, with that beautiful smile and those canine teeth, he thought all the screaming adoration was nonsense.

Once when the Boomtown Rats were starting out and we were going through that he came backstage at a concert we were doing in Oxford and I asked him, 'Do you miss it?’ and he said, 'Absolutely not.’

“Thank you for your kind thoughts, flowers and messages of concern and compassion for our ordeal. Your kindness and love were a great help and a desperately needed contrast to our unfortunate experience. We would like to wish you and your families a happy new year and hope it will be be peaceful and loving one. We hope to see you again soon. George, Olivia and Dhani Harrison (Om Shanti).” - A card sent by the Harrison family after the horrific attack on their lives at Friar Park on 30 December 1999 [x], quoted in Billboard, 15 December 2001 [xx]


okay so i’ve seen more people joining the pledis girlz fandom either from seeing shannon on girl spirit, watching we or watching fancams from the weekly showcases so here’s a brief introduction to the fandom for the newcomers <3

Firstly there were 7 of the 10 PLEDIS GIRLZ on Produce 101. These members in order of age are Nayoung, Minkyung, Kyungwon, Eunwoo, Yebin, Pinky, and Siyeon. Nayoung is a dancer and a rapper, Minkyung is a vocal, Kyungwon is a vocal, Eunwoo is a vocal, Yebin is a rapper/dancer, Pinky is a vocal/dancer and Siyeon can do EVERYTHING. They are all very talented!!! 

For their group evaluation at the beginning of PD101 they danced to After School’s Bang! and it was said that Siyeon rearranged the song for the performance (here). Kyungwon rearranged Big Bang’s Monster for their position evaluation stage (it’s beautiful watch it here) and Nayoung choreographed the dance for her group’s position eval (watch that here)

After Produce 101 ended 2 of the 7 girls (Nayoung and Pinky) made it into I.O.I and are still promoting with the other I.O.I members in their subunit.

Pledis then released their hidden gems! 3 other members, Shannon, Yewon and Kyla! Shannon is a power vocal and is the cutest child you will ever see. She’s also a producer and produced WE, PLEDIS GIRLZ’s pre-debut track along with Eunwoo. Yewon is power vocal #2 and is also an amazing dancer, her smile can save lives go watch WE you’ll see what i mean. Kyla is the youngest of the group, born in December 2001 but has heaps of talent and rap flow!!! Queen Kyla!!! they say that all three of them auditioned for PD101 but didn’t make it and i’ll never believe that because they could have easily passed they are amazing

nicknames/inside jokes:

  • nayoung: she’s “emotionless” so people call her stone buddha but she’s actually christian whoops, is the mom™, suffers because all the children have way too much energy, “stop! stop! don’t get too excited” all the girls love im nayoung
  • minkyung: looks prettiest when sleeping, is agreed to be nick from zootopia by the other members, is actually badass af, gets cute when awkward, loves yebin v much
  • kyungwon: “golden ratio” kyungwon, is really cool you wish you were her, saved me with her cover of who are you, gorgeous face gorgeous personality gorgeous voice stan talent
  • eunwoo: her face is amazing, meme, “i’m everyone’s beagle, ang!” can’t control her facial expressions but that’s her charm, love hate relationship with pinky
  • yebin: smoll rapper child, is stubborn but also really really nice, lots of affection lots of skinship, LOVES TONY STARK, i’m pretty sure she and siyeon run the entire place, high-key gay for minkyung (and shannon and siyeon and everyone else)
  • pinky: has 3 names i’m always confused, sweet meme, really really hyper, screamed “AJU NICE” on broadcast i’m in love, hates grey coloured socks for some reason, clingy, possessive af towards nayoung “she’s my unnie”, gushed about nayoung’s legs on PD101, bullies eunwoo w/ plenty of affection
  • shannon: WHISTLE NOTES GODDAMN, cutest human being, american child, just a sweet child with a beautiful voice, but then she starts dancing and you’re like what no hold on damn girl, one of the best dancers and best singer wow
  • yewon: POSITIVE GIRL YEWON, smile saves lives, gorgeous voice, has great english pronunciation i’m not sure if she lived in america or not, sang chandelier and blew everyone away with talent
  • siyeon: the boss™, trained for 7 years holy shit, does everything and does it well, once said “why are you crying when we’re in a lesson? we’re supposed to be learning”, takes no nonsense from anyone and is probably the ceo’s favourite daughter, called “princess” by the other members (kyungwon), is actually bullied with affection and can’t really do anything about it
  • kyla: smoll and soft, but not really, so much reverse charm i’m dead, her hair is goals, deep voice rapping ugh, wrote her own rap and performed it for her solo practice, i’m really emotional i love my daughter, QUEEN KYLA DOMINATE

the PLEDIS GIRLZ now hold weekly concerts on saturday, tickets used to be free but now cost $? i’m not sure how much they cost but they’re not expensive. every week is a member day and the selected member has a solo stage to showcase their stuff. 160625 they aired the concert live with pinky and nayoung and you can watch it on v app here

every week they have new performances and if you go through my v:fancam tag you can find most of their performances i strongly suggest you go do that some notable mentions include:

if you wanna find more just search 플레디스걸즈 on youtube you’ll find great stuff trust me talent can’t be hidden

pledis finally did something right and uploaded their solo practice clips (except pinky and nayoung) along with a dance practice for we

nayoung and pinky are on lots of variety shows with I.O.I if you wanna watch them just search up IOI on youtube there’s a lot of stuff their company should chill out a little the girls all look tired

shannon (aka Bae Sungyeon) is currently competing on a show called Girl Spirit on the TV network JTBC. it’s a show that aims to bring recognition to underrated vocalists in the kpop industry. she’s doing great and her performances are all beautiful, the judges say she’s got great talent. PLEDIS GIRLZ is also the youngest group on the show, having debuted 1 day before the show started filming. GO WATCH SHANNON’S PERFORMANCES HERE and HERE!

in conclusion you should watch PLEDIS GIRLZ and stan them because they have a whole lot of talent and it’s coming straight at you embrace it <3

He was a lovely, lovely man, a caring, private person. A lot of people said he was quiet but that’s because they didn’t get to know him.

He was actually quite lively and humorous. He was always making dry quips.

He was not shy, but he was happy to stand back and only speak when he thought it was relevant. He was a deep thinker who didn’t say any more than was necessary.

—  Bernadette Farrell on George Harrison, Liverpool Echo, 1 December 2001 [x]

Yeah… If you’ve just gone through a row or something, the last thing you want to do is talk about it… I put it in ‘When We Was Fab’: 'The microscopes that magnified the tears/Studied warts and all.’ Well, it’s like that, now I’m able to remember all the good things as well, and we really had a laugh when we were really good friends… We got through all that by giving each other strength and support and all that.

So all the time that’s gone between means we remember the good things as well as the bad, and even the bad things we can see [more calmly] in retrospect. It’s like, everybody thinks the Beatles were really this big thing, and maybe they were in one way. But having been one, I can say, 'Well, not really.’ I mean, John was very clever in many ways, but he wasn’t exactly what everybody thinks, and neither were Ringo or Paul or myself. We weren’t all as clever or stupid as we’ve been made out to appear.

—  George Harrison in response to Chris Willman’s question, “Is it easier to talk about the Beatles after so many years?”, 1987, published by EW, 14 December 2001

George [Harrison]’s actions in life reflected the values that came through his songs. Most are well documented, but I can speak only of my own personal encounter with George. I met him during the release of the Cloud 9 album. I was scared shitless when I saw him and all I could talk to him about was silly stuff. Two days later my wife asked me if there was anyway I could get George Harrison’s autograph for a young woman - a huge fan - who was dying of cancer. I contacted my George connection and popped the question. Within two days I not only had an autographed poster, but a personalized poem written especially for this young fan. The autograph and poem were real and the girl died a month later. I have never forgotten George’s kindness to a person he had never even met. The world is a sadder and poorer place without George. We need good people, and we just lost a shining light. Thank you for all of your music George. I will miss you most for the person you were and the things you represented. Rest in peace, friend.

                            “What is it you wanted to ask me?”
                                “Never mind, I figured it out.”

                                     a girl meets world au in which shawngela is endgame 

On December 8th, 2001, Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) was brought into the New World, and, with her, Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), as the new travel writer and photographer for the “Hit The Road” website. Leaving New York City that same day, Shawn closed the door to the Old World for good, while visiting his two friends and their family every now and then. 

A couple months later, Angela Moore (Trina McGee), now a freelance journalist, arrives to the city with a military husband across the sea and a newborn baby in tow. Living only a couple blocks down from the Matthew house in Greenwich Village, Angela reunites with her old friends and Riley and Angela’s daughter, Aria (Yara Shahidi), grow up together. 

Riley, with her goofy and caring nature balances out Aria’s more quiet, yet strong-willed one. The two form a bond that can withstand anything that tries to tear them apart, even the death of Aria’s father when they were 11, leaving Aria distant and somewhat cold to those who love her. She let out the anger she felt from the loss of her father through writing, which she only shared with Riley, and her and her mom slowly moved on. 

Shawn moved back to the city when the girls were 13, having been located there for “Hit The Road”. He fits right back in with his old friends, becoming a great uncle to Riley and Auggie, and reforming his relationship with Angela. Though not together, the two remain good friends and Shawn develops a close relationship with Aria. He even becomes a mentor to her when the girls are in high school and Aria expresses interest in writing for the school’s literary magazine. 

Though throughout the years, the lines between who they are now and who they were in high school start to blur as Shawn and Angela grow closer. They give dating another try and, like the ocean against a beach, the two collide right back into each other in the only way they know how. A year later, Shawn proposes, and Aria, though still holding onto her father, accepts Shawn into their life with open arms. 

Meanwhile, Riley and Aria are still trying to figure out where they fit in this New World. And in the bay window are their friends, Farkle Minkus, Lucas Friar, Zay Babineaux, and Isadora Smackle, helping each other pave the way to their futures.

“John and George found themselves at one when it came to discovering the mysteries of life.” - Cynthia Lennon, A Twist of Lennon [x]

“During my interaction with [George] Harrison, I found him to be a humble and friendly person, who was very interested in India […].

Harrison had a good sense of humour.

[…] While the others indulged themselves in their rooms, Harrison would go and take a dip in the Ganges in the morning and spend the rest of the day with Mahesh Yogi.“ - Saeed Naqvi, as told to Basharat Peer, rediff.com, 2 December 2001 [x]
