Archery

ok Paralympians in general are badass but Paralympic archers are fucking METAL i mean look at this shit!!!

Danielle Brown! A team GB archer with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in her feet, meaning her feet are in near constant pain and she walks with crutches. She leans on a stool to shoot AND STILL MANAGES PERFECT FORM

Matt Stutzman!! American athlete who currently holds the world record for longest accurate shot in archery!! He was born without arms, he does this shit with his feet

Zahra Nemati!!! From Iran! She competed in fucking taekwondo, SHE’S A BLACK BELT, but a car accident in 2003 left her with spinal injuries and paralysis in both legs. DID SHE LET THAT STOP HER? FUCKING NO, SHE TOOK UP ARCHERY INSTEAD, NBD!! And what else? SHE QUALIFIED FOR BOTH THE 2016 PARALYMPICS AND THE GENERAL OLYMPICS, and she was the flag bearer for the Iranian team in the Parade of Nations.

when. will. ur. fav. ever!

Toshiya archery tournament at Sanjusangendo temple, by Prado

Their is always something I find magical in archery. Quiet concentration, mouvements, I could watch archers for hours.

Symbol of good luck and goodness piercing evil, arrows have been associated with celebrations for long in Japan. Toshiya, a big Kyudo tournament organised after New Year in Kyoto, is a good example. 

Here’s a song about the MCU’s Clint Barton! I started writing about Fraction’s Hawkeye but it was reeeallly not working, so I went to the movies. In Age of Ultron we got to see Clint Barton’s secret life. I thought this song might make Clint chuckle. <3 


As always, you can download the song for free here.


Regular Guy

Chorus:
I watch the world from way up high,
I regularly almost die
My BFF was a soviet spy
But really, I’m a regular guy!

I’ve got my wife, my kids and a farm out in the sticks
Doing DIY is how I get my kicks
I’ve got a different check shirt for every occasion
Remember to take out the trash before I save the nation

CHORUS

Out in the barn is where I keep my green John Deere
I’ve been growing my own vegetables for well over a year
I cook a mean lasagne, that dish is full of flavour
But when Captain America calls you know I’ll do that favour

CHORUS X 2

When the sun goes down and the lights are low
There’s always some place that I’ll have to go
Aliens or robots, you never do know
Save the world with an arrow and bow!

CHORUS

Viking Photoshoot featuring belt set and rune bones by @lykosleather 🌿 so in love with the custom color of the belt! The belt was also custom sized!
( just because I know I’ll get more asks about the subject, I’ve been doing archery for 6-7 years now and the bow I’m using in the photos is about 55lbs)
