This is the scene in S1 that brought me from “I like this show” to “well, this show owns my soul now,” for the record. (At the time, someone called that type of scene a “shatterpoint scene” – the scene that tips you from being a casual viewer to being a hardcore fan.)
I sang with my choir in concert today, it was jazzy christmas songs and ahhhhh it was so gooooooooood/////// Next one is in January and I would like to record it this time >v< the songs arrangements are great!
On this day in music history: December 4, 1971 - “Family Affair” by Sly & The Family Stone hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks, also topping the R&B singles chart for 5 weeks on the same date. Written and produced by Sly Stone, it is the third and final chart topping single for the San Francisco, CA based R&B/Funk band. Recorded at a time of much turmoil and upheaval in the once harmonious band, “Family Affair” expresses the ups and downs that one often has with their family. The breakdown of relationships within the band brought on clashing egos, money, drug abuse, and pressure to maintain their success exacts a heavy toll on all concerned. It takes Sly nearly a year and a half to complete “There’s A Riot Goin’ On”, working mostly on his own, with an ever rotating cast of musician friends as well as some contributions from the other band members. On “Family Affair”, Sly and his sister Rosie are the only members of the band to appear on the single. Billy Preston (keyboards) and Bobby Womack (guitar) provide additional instrumental support. “Family Affair” (like much of the album) utilizes the Maestro Rhythm King, one of the earliest drum machines to come on the market. The single is an immediate smash upon its release on October 15, 1971. Entering the Hot 100 at #50 on November 6, 1971, it leaps to the top of the chart just four weeks later. “Family Affair” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
On the screenshots, you can see studyplus which is an app for recording your time spent on studying.
I got this app about three months ago and decided to record each time I study something. I couldn’t study even full 2 hours a week, sometimes I didn’t study at all for few months… I still have depression, many problems each day.
Now, I study more than five hours a week, which means that I finally have better discipline. This week I studied for about 9 hours? I couldn’t believe my eyes. My grades got better. I can understand more japanese texts already. Math teacher told me I got better at math problems.
Almost everything is possible with hard work, and I believe that this app helped me to become a better student. Seeing how much time I spend on nothing got me motivated. Seeing how much free time I actually have made me move my ass and study harder. No more excuses.
God blessed me with health, life, the love of my life and time. I won’t let it waste.
I wanted to have all of the 6.09/6.10 confessions up before the episode aired but we got hit with a power outage. I’m going to try to have them up tomorrow but some things may be addressed in the episode and may not make sense. I hope it comes back in time to record the episode.
Setting down one of the last boxes into their new living room, Spencer lets out a large huff. She was pleasantly surprised over the past couple of weeks when everything with this house had went almost perfectly. Ever since she stubbled across the beach front property, everything had fallen into place. She instantly fell in love, then Taylor instantly fell in love, and then the house was theirs in record timing. Spencer looked up at the younger blonde, rolling her eyes. She just got back into the field on Friday. She still was supposed to take it easy when it came to exerting herself. So, when Taylor offered to help move the two of them into their house, she thought she would actually help. Instead of doing what she was doing right now, which was sitting on the couch, watching the her.
Spencer wiped the sweat from her brow, turning to her soul mate. “Are you going to help or are you just going to keep watching me from there?” Spencer smirked. “I know that I look great in this sports bra and everything, but I can’t move into this four bedroom house all by myself.” She let out a soft laugh, moving towards their brand new couch. “The least you could do is start using your perfect decorating skills to start unpacking these things.” But as soon as that left her mouth, the officer got an idea. With a playful smirk on her lips, Spencer carefully straddled the younger blonde’s waist. “If you help, I’ll make it worth your while.” She husked in Taylor’s ear, biting on her lobe roughly. “We still have to break in every room.” She whispered before getting up to retrieve the last box outside. @taylor-carson
does anyone else think about how fandoms are like cities?
you got your big, bustling ones that are really diverse and busy, maybe a little hard to navigate and full of crime, good areas and bad areas. the locals know the hot spots and how to get around
then the mid-range towns with big city attitudes even though they’re not big cities, a few local hubs of activity, the crazy dude ranting about stuff on the street corner who makes people uncomfortable
and then the small spot towns where everybody knows everybody, you can’t go out without seeing somebody you know, and there’s only one grocery store
