I finally get what you’ve been saying, Now that we’re knee deep side by side, The storm clouds are circling above us, As we struggle against the tide. … This sorrow weighs down on my shoulders, This fear is getting harder to hide, You’ll leave me alone in this darkness, Left to hold out Against the tide ~♫
The dark squares that make up the checkerboard pattern in this
image are fields of a sort—fields of seaweed. Along the south coast of
South Korea, seaweed is often grown on ropes, which are held near the
surface with buoys. This technique ensures that the seaweed stays close
enough to the surface to get enough light during high tide but doesn’t
scrape against the bottom during low tide.
Because The Radio Dept. is one of the best bands, ever.

The 1970 college football game between the University of Alabama and the University of Southern California may not truly be “the most important game in college football history.” But when the superb documentary Against the Tide suggests that it is, it’s hard not to want to agree.
Against the Tide, which premieres Friday night on Showtime, tells the story of a legendary game that almost didn’t happen. Before the 1970 college football season, the National Collegiate Athletic Association allowed colleges to add an extra game to their schedule, probably to increase revenues. Most schools set up matches with teams from smaller nearby colleges or other patsies in order to grab an easy win and a quick payday.
But Alabama’s head coach Paul “Bear” Bryant and Southern Cal’s John McKay, whose two teams had won half the national championships in the 1960s, made different plans. In April, Bryant flew to Los Angeles to meet his longtime friend McKay and set up a two-game series between the Crimson Tide and Trojans.

This is how Zoe and Jones first meet.
I love their friendship. I love that it’s platonic. I love that he’s basically her surrogate big brother. I love how protective and nurturing he is of her even when she’s being an asshole. I love how she learns to rely on him and trust him.
In the last two episodes, Dr. Anna Ripley has re-emerged and refused to be ignored any longer. Since she’s become extraordinarily important once again, we decided to hunt down everything we know about her. Much like the Thordak compendium, we’ve compiled all the times Ripley has been mentioned here. The following is a summary of that information; again, all facts, no speculation, and spoilers up through Episode 67. Proceed with caution.
