Keystone’s “A Film Johnnie”

“A real improvement among Charlie Chaplin’s first few films at Keystone. A Film Johnnie looks satirically at the fledging movie industry and the effect films already had on the public. Crammed together in abandoned storefronts with poor temperature control, films remained a product for the lower and middle classes, while the highbrows preferred the legitimate theater. A Film Johnnie casts Charlie as one of those moviegoers, as it derives humor from his response to the beauty of a movie star.”

Pg 33

James L Neibaur - “Early Charlie Chaplin the Artist as Apprentice at Keystone Studios”

“I think the hardest part
of losing someone isn’t
having to say goodbye,
but rather to learn to live
without them. Always
trying to fill the void,
the emptiness that’s
left inside your heart
when they go.” ♡

I really wish that the universe shouldn’t have decided this type of ending for two young bright men. With dreams ahead of them. One was to become a marine and the other was to be a computer engineer. Dreams that never became a reality. They cried for help, but no one listened. Now they’re being blamed. Their families couldn’t grieve when they first heard the news of the loss of their sons and brothers. For fear of being judged. Tom and Sue Klebold lost their youngest son. Their sunshine boy. Byron lost his younger brother. Now Byron’s kid(s) won’t ever get to meet their uncle. They won’t ever get to see that happy, playful side of Dylan. Or see his beautiful smile. Now all we have are stories about Dyl, and the memories his family decided to share with us. Wayne, Kathy, and Kevin also lost a son and a brother. I know that Eric was a loving and caring person behind what we got to see. Eric, I’m so sorry for the things you went through in your life. I wouldn’t have left you out of fun things. I would’ve been that friend that listened to the things you wanted to vent about and would’ve done everything in my power to help you. There was more to you. I’m also sorry for the pain you endured. Eric, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy now, finally free. I miss you so much. Dylan, I miss you as well. You and Eric were beautiful souls. Rest In Peace to Eric David Harris and Dylan Bennet Klebold. You both deserved better than what you got during your brief time here. ♡ You’re both missed and loved boys.

Do not stand on my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sun on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand on my grave and cry.
I did not die.

Planned Parenthood Turns 99 Today!!

Ninety-nine years ago — when a majority American women and families were struggling to access basic health care — the country’s first birth control clinic opened in Brooklyn. Back then, even distributing information about contraception was illegal — but it was sorely needed. And 99 years later, that clinic has grown into the Planned Parenthood of today: A family of health centers serving 2.7 million people every year, a network of educators reaching 1.5 million people a year, and a grassroots political movement that has stood up to attacks on reproductive health — and continues to stand strong.

Throughout that time, Planned Parenthood has been part of and witness to so many historic milestones in the fight for reproductive rights.

Here are just 10 memorable moments from those 99 years.

As we look back on our past, we’re even more excited about what’s happening right now and our vision for the future. We invite you to be a part of that future RIGHT NOW. Join our movement.

Take action to stand with Planned Parenthood.

Born this day 99 years ago.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Lieutenant of the United States Navy, member of US House of representatives from Massachusetts 11th district, United States Senator from Massachusetts, 35th president of the United States of America

Icon of style, a man who wanted to bring peace earth, wanted to make the world a better place, discover the world and space

May 12, 1916: Irish revolutionary James Connolly was executed by British imperialism for his role in leading the Easter Uprising. 

99 years ago today James Connolly was executed by British Army firing squad. We remember him in our struggle for a truly independent Republic that cherishes all of our people.

‘A great crowd had gathered outside of Kilmainham

Their heads all uncovered, they knelt to the ground.

For inside that grim prison

Lay a great Irish soldier

His life for his country about to lay down.

He went to his death like a true son of Ireland

The firing party he bravely did face

Then the order rang out: Present arms and fire

James Connolly fell into a ready-made grave

The black flag was hoisted, the cruel deed was over

Gone was the man who loved Ireland so well

There was many a sad heart in Dublin that morning

When they murdered James Connolly-. the Irish rebel’

140212 Eunhae at SM Building:

Because the car cannot move out, Eunhae kept showing fans photos from their phones ^^.

While Donghae was showing the pic from his phone he kept moving his phone making sure everybody can see and he had a very serious face when he was busy choosing his pictures..

The first pic he showed was himself with his name 이동해 and something like wo de bao bei men and all the fans laughed damn loud when he show the pic of himself as a girl : D

When he showed the photo with the orange coat, the fans scream “추석” which he also realised the mistake, he laughed and roll inside the car.

Hyuk was videoing the fans and then decided to show pics as well.. [c]
