3.5 stars

since I now pretend at being a star wars blog, I’ve decked it out for the 40th anniversary of star wars tomorrow! icon and mobile banner are switched out, the queue is loaded with OT posts, and now, a star wars story.

you know how cool it would have been if my parents had met at the star wars premiere? well, that didn’t happen. however, the day of the premiere my dad closed his office early (which he never did) to go see the matinee showing of star wars with my mom because he “knew it was going to be a big deal”. after they got all settled in the theatre my mom decided she wanted popcorn, and that’s how she missed the opening scrawl. however, my dad was hooked and when it re-released in theatres when I was 10, he took me to the premiere showing of each re-release. we’re a star wars family (or most of us are).

anyway, on this most catchphrasey of anniversaries,

may you celebrate with blue milk and all the cantina music your ears can handle!

(also if you have read this far, drop a prompt in my inbox and I’ll write you a drabble for may the 40th <333 prompts will be open until 3pm EST)

Dan and Phil’s Liveshow // 4.27.17

First liveshow in the new house

Dan is wearing the pink Sydney shirt

Phil is wearing a new grey/blue/green? hoodie 

Random box of shit that they went through

Many box paper cuts

Moving video recap

The London Apartment was like the F.R.I.E.N.D.S apartment

They’re still going to be making videos and they brought their stuff no need to fret

The new house is a duplex

They’re still renting RIP to the dog dreams for now

They’re drowning in cardboard boxes

There’s a semi transparent glass door in the lounge

Easter baking (Phil still doesn’t know what they’re called)

“Whisk it harder” -Phil

Phil’s bedroom is going to be pretty much the same don’t get too hyped about new interior design

Dan’s bedroom will be almost completely different (apparently it looks like the moon?)

Dan got rid of the bedspread but Phil kept his (he secretly has 2 the entire time)

They are yet to meet the neighbor

“’When will you get a dog?’ I guess when the house is bought and there’s no landlord.”

The gaming background will look weirdly similar 

“Gaming lighting will be dank”

Dan’s filming area is through the door thing through the longue 

Dan didn’t want to play i spy on the flight back from Singapore what a bitch

They watched Fantastic Beasts (3/5 stars), Lion (ugly crying), Hacksaw Ridge (Dan cried the entire second half of the movie) on the flight 

They went to a night zoo in Singapore which was really cool

Phil was convinced an elephant was trying to come after him

Dan wanted to see absolutely everything 

They haven’t listened to the new Fall Out Boy song yet

They’re enjoying the new place a lot just getting adjusted 

Phil will still film in his bedroom (apparently the landlord thought he was going to film a porno)

They have a Lounge and a chill lounge (currently they’re in the chill lounge which is where they’ll film)

Dan got a white piano

Phil is constantly taking creepshots

Maybe they’ll get a fish

The Art Science Museum in Singapore was lit 

Phil the Photographer

Phil’s hood has gone up #news

Dan did a lot of crying on that trip

Basically Singapore was just really cool

Dan stuck his foot through the leg of the ripped jeans

“What is it with Australia inspiring me to paint my nails” 

#cocktus 

Phil may attempt to curl his hair for a video at some point

Phil will be away in Florida after Playlist with his family on holiday so he’ll tweet about when he’ll do the next liveshow

The 1D poster is gone #rip

The last gaming video was a good send off

This year is very much about them and their lives

Dan got a bonsai for is desk

Dan has one more dinof video filmed in the old house 

This one isn’t a forever home

“You sneaky weasels” 

“It suits him. Embrace the natural curls.” Phil on Dan’s curls

The new place doesn’t really have a name but Thor is a possibility

Phil probably wouldn’t paint his nails because he doesn’t like having stuff on his (like tattoos or pen marks) just as a personal preference 

DINOF video most likely on Monday and Dan liveshow on Tuesday

“We hope that we’re been two virtual buddies to you”

“Goodbyeeeeeee”

🔱 A H S O K A

🔱 JEDI TRAINING (I don’t care what the two of you say three years is not enough time)

🔱 That guy who narrated the beginning of all the CW episode like I don’t know how he’d fit in but I need it

🔱 Zeb and Kallus being dorks and kicking butt together

🔱 more AP-5 sass pls? Like just let us see him roast the entire rebel alliance pls I know he could do it just give him the chance

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly
by Stephanie Oakes

The Kevinian cult has taken everything from seventeen-year-old Minnow: twelve years of her life, her family, her ability to trust.

And when she rebelled, they took away her hands, too.

Now their Prophet has been murdered and their camp set aflame, and it’s clear that Minnow knows something—but she’s not talking. As she languishes in juvenile detention, she struggles to un-learn everything she has been taught to believe, adjusting to a life behind bars and recounting the events that led up to her incarceration. But when an FBI detective approaches her about making a deal, Minnow sees she can have the freedom she always dreamed of—if she’s willing to part with the terrible secrets of her past.

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is a hard-hitting and hopeful story about the dangers of blind faith—and the power of having faith in oneself.

First Thoughts

Final Thoughts

The Good: This book was a very quick read for me. It was easy to get through, but the prose was truly excellent quality! There were plenty of lines where I paused and really appreciated how Minnow’s thoughts were expressed. Her character was also very relatable, despite her very unusual circumstances. And I think it takes great skill as a writer to weave a mystery wherein in the first-person narrator knows the truth but doesn’t reveal it until the very end! I never found myself getting frustrated because the balance of present-day and flashback was so well done. The twist with the ending was so satisfying. Also, it’s a really lovely adaptation of The Girl Without Hands, and I appreciated all the nods, from Angel to the pear tree to everything else. It’s not like anything I’ve read before!

The Bad: There wasn’t much I disliked, to be honest! Everything seemed very deliberate, and I appreciated that. I think there’s a slight disconnect between past-Minnow and present-Minnow in terms of dialect–she clearly speaks with a dialect in the past but not the present, but there was no clear point or mention of when she started speaking differently. I also wish we’d gotten a little more closure about the Phillip Lancaster subplot, but at the same time, it’s clear Minnow’s story isn’t really over by the end, and it didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything.

Representation: This was better than I expected in terms of representation! For one thing, Minnow is disabled and the story doesn’t shy away from it, nor does it focus on it in that tragedy-porn sort of way. She is coping with the trauma, but she learns how to work with her disability and everyone either treats her like everyone else or quickly learns not to underestimate her. Jude is an important character who is black. I didn’t pick up on anything overtly anti-black in his presentation, but that could be faulty reading on my part since it’s not my experience. There’s a great moment where Minnow actively deprograms the part of her upbringing that told her non-white people were evil. Unfortunately, the one lesbian character is treated as wicked and predatory, so as far as LGBT+ rep goes, that’s pretty sucky. So, I’d say this one is a mixed bag for representation.

Favorite Line: “He invented a religion. I’m just not sure he did a very good job.”

Rating: 3.5/5!
