Some notes - 

~I’m not going to double up on episodes - the ending date for the rewatch will be sometime in the fall of 2019. 

~Tag for the rewatch: TDB Rewatch, and then individual episodes will be - TDB Rewatch: Acafellas (etc) 

~I’m still planning to do Meta on Mondays, Polls on Tuesdays, Throwback Thursdays, and Music on Fridays

~All my opening posts will be on Sundays - but if you guys want to do a liveblog thing on Saturday nights/afternoons - go for it! I encourage you :) 

~Season 2 will start on October 15, I’ll post the next part of the schedule around that time. 

~I plan on redoing the sidebar. Old things will probably be condensed down to one page.  

This is all still a big work in progress as to how it’s going to work - but I’m on board, and think it’ll be a fun thing.  Thanks for being patient! 

**Important**

I could use your help with two things

1. If you guys have poll ideas or meta question ideas that you’d like to share (or any additional content) please feel free to drop a line any time, and I’ll include your questions, etc in the corresponding posts.  

2. I plan on doing round up posts that include links to people’s meta and thoughts.  I NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP WITH ROUND UP POSTS.  Seriously guys - this is a two year project, and if I get a handful of people who will help out with this it’ll go a long, long way.  Drop a line if you’re interested in helping out. 

TIMELESS FANS AND SYMPATHIZERS, we’re on a mission to get this amazing show a second season. We need your help in this! The cast and crew can’t do it alone, they need our help. And us fans can’t do it alone either, we need your help.

It might feel like there’s not much we can do and that we have our hands tied behind our backs now, but we must at least try. If we don’t even try then there’s no way for things to change at all. So what are the small things we can do? Let’s show our love and support in social media. We already try to get the show trending on Monday nights when new episodes are airing, and that’s great, but how about we go one step further?

HERE’S THE PLAN:

CONTINUE MAKING IT TREND ON MONDAYS

This Monday, January 23rd, let’s make it trend! Let us make sure it trends. And every Monday after that as well. It’s not completely hopeless. Kripke said the remaining five weeks are going to be crucial in determining the future of the show, let us take that to our advantage. Once a networks decides to cancel a show, there’s no use in crying to them and begging them to “bring X back”, BY THEN IT’S TOO LATE. But we can use these five weeks to our advantage, five weeks is a considerable amount of time to make an change, LET’S DO IT.

For episode 1x12, let us not only tweet our thoughts with #Timeless, but also #RenewTimeless. DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE #RENEWTIMELESS!!!!!

Worried about time difference? WORRY NOT! Not every person can tweet with the Eastern/Pacific showings, and your support is just as important. Starting Monday, wherever you are in the world, TWEET ABOUT TIMELESS, TWEET YOUR FEELS, TWEET YOUR SUPPORT, TWEET ABOUT HOW EXCITED YOU ARE FOR THE EPISODE. Just tweet. I’ve spoken with someone who understands a bit about twitter traffic and analytics and they say sometimes it’s even better when something is being constantly mentioned, so if we spend the entire Monday talking about it, chances are when the episode actually airs it’s going to exponentially increase its chances for trending with a significant number of mentions. Just tweet it whatever time you can. Tweet during your lunch break, tweet when you wake up, when you’re about to go to sleep, when you’re on the bus, or while you’re walking to class, just tweet it. Don’t be shy.

Tweet at @NBC @sony @nbctimeless

Also tweet at the writers, producers, cast and crew so they can also spread the word and see the support they have! 

Let’s do this every single Monday from here on out! Let’s try to turn the tables!! LET’S TRY TO BRING THE RATINGS UP!

We could also try and go the extra mile and make it trend on another particular date and time of our choosing, NOT ONLY WHEN IT’S AIRING ON MONDAY. Maybe we could try and do that one of these weekends? This is something a lot of people would have to agree upon and we have to organize it in such a manner that everyone is contributing on said occasion. It can’t be spur of the moment thing with only 10 or so people trying to get it to trend. It has to be organized and collaborative. We could set a tentative date for it and then come up with an actual one that would work for everybody.

Don’t watch Timeless yet? Refer to this post and check out why you should!

Haven’t started Timeless yet but want to give it a chance? PLEASE HELP US TOO! You don’t know it now but if you go back and watch this show after s1 is over and there’s no s2 for you to watch after, you’re gonna regret it. Please help us in our endeavor!!

Watch Timeless and want a s2 too, but don’t understand what all the fuss is about? Refer to this, Kripke, Timeless’ Executive Producer HIMSELF is asking us to do something about it. It doesn’t get any realer than this.

Even if you don’t exactly know what’s going on, WE IMPLORE YOU TO HELP. TWEET EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT TWEET MEANS. IT’S GONNA MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

So, in conclusion, let’s try our best and do every thing we can think of that might change the perspective of a s2 for us

WATCH IT LIVE IF YOU CAN, DVR IT, WATCH IT IN YOUR DVR WITHIN ONE WEEK OF THE EPISODE, REWATCH IT, STREAM IT ON THE NBC WEBSITE AND/OR APP, PURCHASE IT ON AMAZON, VUDU, APPLE, BUY A SEASON PASS, BY A SINGLE EPISODE, AND SPREAD THE WORD SO OTHERS CAN DO THE SAME!

DON’T FORGET

#TIMELESS + #RENEWTIMELESS @nbc @nbctimeless @sony ALL DAY MONDAYS JANUARY 23 AND 30 + FEBRUARY 6, 13, AND 20! LET’S DO THIS GUYS. WE CAN DO THIS, THERE IS STILL TIME.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

The Amityville Horror: A Tale of Murder and the Paranormal

The history behind the famous house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, Long Island, N.Y. is much more horrific than the classic 1970′s horror film which depicts paranormal events supposedly experienced by the Lutz family. The film was based on a book about the supernatural activity, written by Jay Anson and published in 1977.

George and Kathy Lutz moved into the house in December of 1975, with Kathy’s three children, Daniel, 9, Christopher, 7, and Melissa (Missy), 5. The house had been vacant for 13 months before the Lutzes purchased the Dutch Colonial, dubbed “High Hopes” by the previous owner, Ronald DeFeo, Sr.

What had occurred at “High Hopes” 13 months prior to the Lutz family moving in is more like a slasher movie than a ghost story.


Twenty-three-year old Ronald Defeo Jr., a.k.a. “Butch” burst into Henry’s Bar, on a Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m., November 13, 1974 with a shocking announcement: “You got to help me! I think my mother and father are shot!” A group of people from the bar went with Butch DeFeo to investigate the family’s home at the now-infamous 112 Ocean Avenue. What they found was a gruesome scene. All six members of his family were shot dead in their beds: his parents, Ronald DeFeo Sr, age 44 and Louise DeFeo, 42, sisters Dawn, 18 and Allison, 13, and brothers Marc, 12 and John Matthew, 9.

It would later be determined that the family was killed 3 a.m. that morning by a .35 caliber Marlin 336C rifle. Each member of the family was found lying on their stomachs in their beds. The parents suffered two shots each and each one of his brothers and sisters was shot one time each.

Ronald “Butch” DeFeo Jr. first claimed that the murders were the work of a mob hitman. As investigators interviewed Butch DeFeo, they found that there were many inconsistencies in his story.  Butch DeFeo confessed to the murders the next day. Besides having the confession, the hitman named by DeFeo as the killer had a solid alibi. DeFeo even told police where he got rid of his bloody clothes and the murder weapon. DeFeo had casually gotten up and gone to work that morning, getting rid of the evidence on the way to his job.

The DeFeos were far from the perfect family. Father Ronald DeFeo Sr. was physically abusive towards his wife and children.

DeFeo Sr. worked for his father’s car dealership and allegedly had been stealing money from the business.

Juror Peggy Giambra recalls Butch DeFeo’s words on the stand: “I remember the chilling words of him saying that once he started, he just couldn’t stop.”

DeFeo Jr. was convicted of six counts of second-degree murder on November 21, 1975. He was given six life sentences and is incarcerated at Sullivan Correctional Facility, Beekman, N.Y.

When George and Kathy Lutz moved in and learned about their new home’s gruesome past, they decided to have a Catholic priest come and bless the house. As he attempted the blessing, the priest claimed that many flies appeared and that he heard a voice commanding him to leave.

The Lutzes also claimed that the front door suddenly blew off its hinges in the middle of the night, a pig with glowing red eyes appeared to them, Kathy claimed she was levitated two feet off her bed and that she received mysterious welts, George claimed Kathy’s appearance would change into that of an elderly woman with wrinkles and white hair and Kathy said she saw a demonic entity appear in the fireplace. The Lutzes described many other bizarre experiences while living at 112 Ocean Avenue.

According to Butch DeFeo, the Lutzes’ story was a fabrication, created to help the Lutzes out of debt. DeFeo’s lawyer William Weber admitted to help fabricate the story in the hopes that the tale would lead to a lesser sentence for DeFeo.

For example, the story of the demonic pig was supposedly based on the neighbors’ cat who DeFeo Jr. hated and called “a fat pig.” Another detail was that George Lutz used to wake every morning at 3:15 a.m., which is the time the murders occurred.

“Weber and the Lutzes started this whole thing,” DeFeo says. The strange tale of the supernatural was meant to be a financial arrangement between DeFeo, the Lutzes and William Weber.

“Amityville itself is just a story – the whole thing is a hoax,” DeFeo says. “The agreement was $850,000.”

However, DeFeo and Weber never got their share of the money. Instead the Lutzes took their story to writer Jay Anson.

“I knew them Lutzes weren’t stable. They double-crossed everybody, then took off and went to California,” DeFeo says.

Reporter Marvin Scott attended a seance at the infamous house, conducted by demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Scott says: “ Lorraine Warren and I walked upstairs to the sewing room. Now, the sewing room was the location where there was reported the strongest presence. She started talking, and at one point, became a bit hysterical, saying, ‘Marvin, I hope this is as close to hell as I’ll ever get.’ I didn’t see anything oozing from the walls. I didn’t hear any strange voices.”

One year after the séance, Jay Anson’s book about the Lutzes’ experiences was published.

The Lutzes lived at 112 Ocean Avenue for 28 days before leaving, supposedly driven from the house by demonic forces. They left all of their belongings behind.

Random daycare question

What are your ratios for ages?!?! I was just talking to someone whose state ratios are 1:15 for 3yos?!?! Ours are

1:4 up to 27mo
1:8 27mo-4yo
1:12 4&5
1:20 6-12
1:30 13+

I guess I just don’t understand the ratios in her area they seem soooooo high!

1:4 babies
1:6 1 yr olds
1:11 2 yr olds
1:15 3 yr olds
1:20 4 yr olds

Are ours off base? How do daycare handle that ratio rationally and actually provide good care?

[Information]

From 6/30 17:00, new Job SRs will be added into the gacha, and you can idolize them into SSRs! There will be six members added into the gacha: Yamato, Mitsuki, Tamaki, Ten, Ryuu, and Momo. From 6/30 17:00 until 7/6 16:59, the appearance rate for these six SRs will be increased! These cards will be permanent!

Furthermore, these SRs will also introduce new skills:

  • When the skill is active, any MISS note will be turned into a GOOD for a certain number of times.
  • While this skill is active for a certain number of seconds, the tapping area will be enlarged so it will be easier to get a PERFECT or GOOD, but score goes down slightly.

The new event “ Idols: One-Day☆Work Experience! ~Let’s send the cute kids on a journey~” [FIRST HALF] is a bingo event! On 6/30 13:00 ~ 17:00 (JST), there will be a maintenance to prepare for the event and the gacha, and the event will go on until 7/6 16:59 (JST).

Similar to the Police event, you will get special “Job Items” after completing bingos and they can be used on a special event gacha for a chance to get Job SRs! Completing bingos will also unlock event dramas to read. Extra event tokens can also be used on an item gacha where you can get puddings, character tokens, FP, and more!

Good luck on both the event and gacha!
