50th celebrations

10

So last year I was the Calgary Stampede Indian Princess. What that means is that I attended 350+ events in the city of Calgary, around Calgary, Germany (twice), Toronto, Pendleton, and Regina (2014 grey cup) all to promote my unique First Nations culture and the connection of the stampede and the Indian Village for one whole year. It was an unforgettable year and I met so many great people, travelled to beautiful places, and learned so much more about my culture. This year, it happens to be the 50th anniversary of the Indian princess program! It’s also the last year that the Village is in the same location. Next year it’ll be on the opposite side of the park. So with that, I’ll be back at it for the 10 days of the 2015 stampede and I couldn’t be more excited! This time around, most of the princess alumni members will attend events together, or divide into groups and attend multiple events, making it more exciting because it’ll be a first for the program to have more than one princess there. So starting with Canada day up until the 12th, I’ll be all around the city celebrating my culture and western heritage. I also may post more about it on here as the days go by. If you see me in the parade (July 3rd) feel free to give me a wave as I ride by! :)

The Mothman Returns!

An anonymous hunter in Point Pleasant, West Virginia has claimed to capture the first photos of the Mothman’s return to the quaint town. It’s the month of the 50th anniversary of the first sighting, could it have returned after 50 years? It’s a little hard to believe that these photos are authentic, especially since the Mothman hasn’t been spotted in the area since the collapse of the Silver Bridge. However Mothman sightings continued after its departure from Point Pleasant, including before the Chernobyl meltdown, a mine collapse in Germany, and even supposedly appears in some pictures during the terrorist attacks in New York on September, 11th.

People who have seen these photos have been very critical of them, claiming that they’re simply a hoax to celebrate the 50th anniversary. Some say it’s simply an owl with a snake in its talons. Others wonder where the iconic glowing red eyes are. But there are some who truly believe it to be the Mothman and that he has returned, but why? Perhaps the harbinger has returned to warn the town of yet another impending tragic event. Only time will tell… Let me know what you think! Stay Curious!

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: it's been almost 2 years and i still think about how much better the doctor who 50th would have been with paul mcgann in the role of the war doctor. i just don't understand why a new incarnation played by an entirely random actor was necessary. especially when paul mcgann was so willing to return to the role of 8th doctor. are you really telling me he was only willing to do the 7 minute prequel? i don't believe it. he would have totally done the 90 minute episode. he's been playing the role for years off screen, longer than any other actor to boot, he would have totally taken up the offer to return to the screen. it would have been such a great book end to his movie as well; 7's regeneration into 8 and his regeneration into 9 both on screen. amazing. and do you know how much cooler it would have been to see the 8th doctor? To see him betray the name of the doctor, to see him become so desperate to stop the madness he throws himself into the war he tried so hard to avoid? do you know how much more heart wrenching that would have been since he's a character we actually know? why did they force a random regeneration on him when they could have actually used HIM for the episode? i just don't get it. it would have made so much more sense too. especially since in a way the 8th doctor really is the bridge between classic and new who and isn't that what the 50th was all about? celebrating the two and bridging them together? he was the first doctor to try to bring doctor who back - the bridge already existed. how does it honestly make sense to throw a man who never had anything to do with doctor who in as the bridge? that's just silly, isn't it? john hurt is a great actor and all but he's not the doctor, you feel? like we all assumed 8 was the one who fought in the war anyway, why change that? and wouldn't it just have been amazing to see paul, david and matt on screen together? like c'mon, they would have been fantastic. why didn't this happen? WHY DIDN'T WE GET PAUL MCGANN??? I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

Masterlist

Hello! These are all of my personal writing, whether they were posted on my main or on my sideblog. Enjoy!

Tom Holland:

Good Morning

Tom brought you home to Kingston with him to meet his parents and all that. This is after your first night staying there and the lovely moments just after the two of you wake up in each other’s arms. It’s pure fluff.

Good Night

He flew you out to Atlanta during filming just because he missed you so much. This is what happens right before you spend the night with him for the first time. It is also pure fluff.

Not so Lazy Day

You’re enjoying your precious time with Tom, enjoying the peaceful afternoon in bed, when his phone lights up alerting the two of you that he has to go to work. You don’t like it, and neither does he. It’s cute, domestic fluff and gives you all the feels.

#79

This is a request from a writing prompt and is about Tom comforting you and loving on you after a run in with the paparazzi. You think about breaking up with him, it’s that bad. See what happens next..

#93 Part 1 ;  #93 Part 2 ; #93 Part 3 ; #93 Part 4

This is also a writing prompt request, but I made it into an 1800′s AU like in Pride and Prejudice but different. You’re a wealthy daughter to parents that mostly want to sell you to the highest bidder for more money. Tom is your stable boy. Love a good forbidden romance.

Beach Day

This is a fat positivity writing about a chubby lover of Tom’s being nervous about changing in the same room as him. He makes you feel loved and cherished and as wonderful as you are. It’s fluff.

Shower

A One Shot about coming home to Tom after he had been working out all day and what ensued after he felt a little frisky. It’s probably PG-13 but it doesn’t go the way scenes like this usually do.

How it Feels to Date Tom Holland

A sort of poetic, yet realistic look at what it would be like if you and Tom were together. It’s from your point of view and talks about some of the things you two go through to be in love. I love it.

Shuddering Gasp

There’s a storm raging in Southwest London as you and Tom enjoy the evening together in his apartment. You want to confess your love, but a twist of events leaves the both of you shaken up.

Smut 18+ Do Not Read Unless You Are 18 or Older

You and Tom went out to dinner on a date and head back to his apartment for a little dessert if you know what I mean…

After Party Smut 18+ ONLY

Tom flies out to L.A. with you for the MTV Movie and TV awards and the entire day he’s super frisky. IT all builds up into an after party scene. Enjoy?

Peter Parker

Overprotective

You are dating Peter Parker who is none other than Spider-Man himself, and since he likes you so much he’s constantly saving you. In this scenerio when something happens to you, and he swoops in to save the day, you’re a little less than thankful. Angst, action, romance. It has it all.

I Took the Bullet

This is my personal favorite imagine I’ve written so far. It’s really pretty but very very sad and it might make you cry. I recommend listening to sad music while you read to add to the experience.

The Big Secret

You confront Peter about why he’s avoiding you during school, and after you guys kiss a little bit you figure it out for yourself. You give him your heart and he doesn’t really return the favor, for good reason. You both end up crying. It’s not the best… but it’s different. Also, you aren’t yourself.

My Hero

A short instance about a sweet kiss you share with the superhero that rescued you. It was inspired after seeing the sweet kiss at the end of the movie IT (2017) and then I sort of just made it about 19-year-olds.

Moonlight

This was to celebrate my 50th follower loosely inspired by the song Moonlight by Ariana Grande. Your parents are top scientist at Oscorp probably which puts a big target on your head, so Spider-Man pays extra attention to you. You hate it, get mad, but then calm down and something weird happens. Read it for yourself!

Lovely Night

You meet a cute boy at a cafe and enjoy live music night, and then he walks you home. It is pure uncut, untamed, and innocent fluff. Makes my heart warm and tingly.

The Breakup

This is how you break up with Peter Parker.

Drivers Ed

This was a request based on a gif that you’ll see on the post. You help Peter figure out how to drive properly, he uses his Spidey Senses, it’s cool and tense at one little spot. You get some pizza. It’s fun.

Fire Starter Pt. 1

Peter Parker inadvertently turns you into a superhuman. It’s action packed and really cool and I’m excited about how it came out.

Into Your Scarf

You’re going on a date with your average boyfriend, Peter Parker. The two of you meet up at a diner for dinner when a robber storms the store. Peter must act fast as Spider-Man to save the day, but when happens afterwards when you start to suspect what’s going on with him? It’s cute.

A New Hero ; Part 2

You catch up with Spider-Man after a month of not seeing each other, which you didn’t really mind. You’re a hero in Queens, he’s a hero in Queens. You just know it’ll make things weird.

Study Sesh

Peter has a normal afternoon studying with you for an important test the next day. The two of you get along, and not once does he worry about the trials of Spider-Man. It’s just the two of you pining for a teenage romance.

“Protect Me”

Spider-Man is saving you, but you know it’s Peter because you’re dating, and you do not want to be there. It’s sad, but not heartbreaking.

Just Friends

Peter drops a notebook as he rushed home, and since you watched it happen and were right behind him, you followed him into an alleyway and saw something that you shouldn’t have- at least to Peter. It’s angsty, and also cute.

How Peter Parker Feels About You

This is in Peter’s point of view of what happens after the team gets back from D.C. and you’re there waiting for him.

The Family Series

Writings about interactions with the people that matter most in Peter’s life.

Not only is lupin iii celebrating its 50th anniversary

Mr. Ohno Yuji is celebrating his 40th as music composer and song writer for the lupin franchise.

From 1977-2017 he’s been providing music for the show and looks like he ain’t stopping anytime soon. He’s written music for film and T.V and some catchy tunes, and his most famous theme is the theme for the second series of lupin the third as the show makes a come back in japan on October 3rd, 1977, after a 5 year hiatus in 1972 since the first series had ended. From that point on the show became popular and since then the music that ohno yuji has written have become as icon as the show itself.

Till he finally decides to hang his hat and retire, it seem Mr. Ohno yuji will continue to keep on grooving. Art by Tad

BBC - BBC to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles - Media Centre
To mark the 50th anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles on 1 June 1967, the BBC will celebrate with programmes across radio and TV.

BBC Radio 2 will present two documentary series - Sgt. Pepper Forever and Paul Merton On The Beatles.

Over two programmes, broadcast on 24 May and 31 May, Martin Freeman presents Sgt. Pepper Forever, which will reveal the revolutionary studio techniques used during the remarkable sessions dating from November 1966 to April 1967 and also examine the album’s huge impact on the history of music. They will feature ‘work-in-progress’ versions of Sgt. Pepper tracks - and the songs on the double A-side single Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane, which were also recorded during the sessions - to illustrate the pioneering techniques used by The Beatles and George Martin.

Martin Freeman says: “Sgt. Pepper is the most celebrated album by my favourite band. These documentaries will shed light on how The Beatles, with George Martin, created a piece of work that marked a watershed for what a long playing record could be. It’s my absolute pleasure to help tell you about it.“

Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, 1967. Alfa Romeo is today celebrating the 50th birthday of the 33 Stradale which made its debut on August 31, 1967, on the eve of the Italian Formula 1 Grand Prix at Monza. Designed by Franco Scaglione, the 33 Stradale is the centrepiece of a special exhibition opening today at the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese, Milan, showcasing the marque’s illustrious racing heritage

He always claimed he never believed in love. That no one cared about him. That love was a myth. Then, he met her, and she changed his world for the better. He started feeling things he never felt before. Happy feelings. Feelings he thought were a myth.

As they celebrate their 50th wedding year anniversary tomorrow, those feelings haven’t gone away.

I’ve been actively collecting Harley stuff for 4 years now I think, and what better time to show off my collection than on her birthday? There are a few minor things missing here and there, like my phone case or my mug, or the posters I didn’t want to pry off my wall just for this. My cosplay stuff stayed in the closet for this group photo as well. 

The comics in the front are just a few issues I’m especially proud to have as well as some Suicide Squad variants because I love Lee Bermejo’s creepy way to draw Harls. You might know this if you’ve been following me for a while, but the big Harley in the back is a cardboard poster we stole from the movie theater last year and it’s one of my greatest treasures.

I’m honestly pretty proud of how fast my collection has grown over the past years and I hope it continues to grow! Since Harley has gotten so popular, especially since Suicide Squad came out, I’ll definitely never run out of merchandise to buy, that’s for sure. 

I can happily say that my love for Harley hasn’t decreased one bit since I originally fell in love with her - it’s only getting bigger. I honestly can’t imagine a future where she isn’t a part of my life in any way, and one day I’ll probably be a 60 year old grandma in a Harley sweater. 

Happy 25th Birthday Harley, I can’t wait to celebrate your 50th! <3
