about this seagull

Steven Universe 2017 Comic #3

The third Steven Universe comic is out. It has this glorious cover available:

Get it from your local comic shop if you can–put it on a pull list so they’ll know it’s popular and create demand!–or buy it online at ComiXology.

And here are some interesting tidbits that should make you want to buy/read it.

Buck is apparently left-handed:

Food trucks have funny names:

Steven has a zine about seagulls and it is full of bird puns, which even hipsters like:

This crowd scene, which features Larsethyst:

And if you look closely, Peridot has a self-insert OC for Camp Pining Hearts. DO NOT STEAL!

More comparisons about Steven and Nora’s videos

Clues that Steven’s tape was recorded first:

-Greg didn’t have his intro decided in Steven’s video. We get his awkward attempt at introducing himself, he stops the recording, then we cut to his “They call me Mr. Universe!”. in Nora’s video he goes directly to the Mr. Universe intro.

-Rose’s joke about the seagull helping Greg with his intro “this time” make it sound like this is the second time they’re recording. Also it seems to suggest this is the same seagull that scare him awake in Steven’s video and it just came back.

The only thing that could suggest Nora’s video being filmed first is that we see the battery of the recorder going out at the end of Steven’s video. (But they could have simply charged it and recorded the second one later)

Rose’s message is basically the same but slightly different each time:

Steven’s: 

Isn’t it remarkable, Steven? This world is full of so many possibilities. Each living thing has an entirely unique experience. The sights they see, the sounds they hear. The lives they live are so complicated… a-and so simple. I can’t wait for you to join them. Steven, we can’t both exist. I’m going to become half of you. And I need you to know that every moment you love being yourself, that’s me, loving you and loving being you. Because you’re going to be something extraordinary. You’re going to be a human being.

(Greg off-camera: Hey, Rose!)

Take care of them, Steven.

Nora’s:

Isn’t it wonderful, Nora? This world is full of so many possibilities. Each living thing has an entirely unique experience. The sights they see. The lives they live are so complicated… and so simple. I can’t wait for you to join them. Nora, we can’t both exist. Though I won’t be gone, I’m going to become half of you. And every moment you enjoy being yourself, that would be me loving being you. Because you’re going to become something extraordinary. You’re going to be a human being. That’s my favorite part, a human being, a human as in action. I wonder who, how you’ll be, what you’ll think, what you’ll want, I’m so happy for everyone who’s going to know you.

I’m rambling…

If they look to you, trust yourself. Take care of them, Nora.

Other shots that are entirely missing in Nora’s video: the temple, Greg being silly in front of the camera at the start, Greg and Rose’s kiss at the end.

Steven’s video is missing the part in which Rose gets rambly entirely.

(I personally like Steven’s message better, but I also like the rambly part from Nora’s. But since Nora and Steven are actually the same person, the ultimate version of the message would be a mix of the two, I guess)

roombavoomba  asked:

What is the deal with seagulls, have they always been opportunistic around humans? I live about 15 miles inland and seagulls would always show up at our schools around lunchtime and could get pretty aggressive over the trash and dropped fries for instance. Crows and finches do the same thing, but the seagulls seem like something is wrong with their natural environment that worries me. That or they just know humans have food

Seagulls are a really great example of what happens when you have a combination of habituation and the ability to adapt well to an urban environment. They’re naturally scavengers with good memories and the ability to fly long distances in search of food - now add in human encroachment on their coastal habitat, human habitations that mimic their nesting sites (sheer edges and flatish roofs) lack of natural predators in cities, and the picnics that come with our beach days and you’ve got a great recipe for a species realizing that it’s way more effective to chill out and utilize humans as a source of food. We’re so many generations into that pattern that they’ve learned how to scout for food-rich areas and time their visits. So it’s not really that there’s something wrong with their natural environment, more that they’ve really adapted to cohabitation with us as their new “natural” state in urban areas. 

(…thinking about it, this is actually probably the closest example I’ve seen to how people think proto-wolves might have started the evolutionary journey into becoming dogs. Hanging out around human settlements for the food, slowly adapting across generations for lower flight distance, and eventually learning to utilize us as a resource…)

Maggie Smith and Brian Bedford - The Stratford Shakespeare Festival (1976-1980)

Maggie did sort of frighten me, and I think I did sort of frighten her. We were both very demanding of each other. And it’s kind of scary when you’re acting so closely, so intimately with somebody, to know that part of them is seeing things quite objectively. Robin Phillips said - and I was rather miffed when he said this to me - that she made me sexy. I know what he means - although I was sexy before I acted with Maggie. But she did. We were able to communicate great love for each other because we felt it. We were sort of in love, Maggie and I. Love-hate. Our period together was certainly a high point. I’d give anything for Maggie to be back. - Brian Bedford, Maggie Smith’s most frequent leading man during the Stratford years of her career

Today i played a game with a small girl, i think she was maybe 11 or 12?
She talked about so many cool map tricks and ways to use the characters, and was really, REALLY good at Phara.

After I complimented her on a nice play, she invited me to a group- and then her dad showed up too and said hello! We ended up all playing together. Eventually friends (and a couple that were just friendly teammates that she invited because they were cool) kept glomming onto our group til we had a full team and we Wrecked. Shop. I had no idea what I was in for.

In our last match together (she and her dad had to leave for dinner) she got play of the game by knocking four of the enemy team off the bridge at lijang tower in a tie breaker round. 

AND she had gold in eliminations.


((Also, I’m sorry for accidentally cursing on mic that one time, I know your dad said it was ok but I still feel a little guilty! I don’t want to get anyone I play with in trouble. You and your dad were super nice, and I liked talking about all the cool stuff you knew about Overwatch. ))

Keep flyin’ high Phara. ovo)7

Why is nobody acknowledging the thing Lars said about the seagulls flying in front of the sunset in Lars's head?

Nobody pays attention to the fact that Lars thinks the birds flying in front of the sunset is beautiful and that angers me

so this one time i was at the statue of liberty and my mom and i witnessed a seagull straight up swooping down and snatching a hotdog right out of this dude’s hands and at first i felt bad for him, because he lost his hotdog, but then i thought about it like all afternoon and eventually i was like “ok but would u rather have a hotdog or a cool story about how a seagull stole a hotdog right out of your hands at the statue of liberty” and i’ve lived by that ever since. like things might seem shitty at the moment but this might make a sweet story later

I love this detail in Episode 10.

Victor is staring out at the seagulls in Barcelona. Here he says the place reminds him of Hasetsu.

But let’s rewind to Episode 4 when Yuuri and Victor had their conversation on the beach together.

He then goes on to say, “I never thought I’d leave that city, so I never used to notice the seagulls’ cries.”

Seagulls make Victor think of home. It used to be St. Petersburg … but that’s not what Victor thinks about when he hears the seagulls in Episode 10.

Victor now thinks of Hasetsu as home.

Stroll on the beach with S/O: Shanks, Mihawk, Crocodile

Hi ! Thanks for the request ! For the headcanons I do not take more than 3 characters !

Shanks:

-Everything was made to be very romantic: beautiful beach, gorgeous sand, even more gorgeous man, sunset etc… 

-But of course Shanks being Shanks, walking on the beach with him would include :

- Stupid jokes about the seagulls

-Him  projecting sand everywhere (not on purpose) and of course having sand in : the hair and the eyes. Greaaaat…

-Him playing with water/Ruining your make up and clothes.

-Him making stupid forms in the sand (no dick).

-This man ruins nearly every damn romantic moments. Sorry.


Mihawk:

-He will be very silent and enjoy every seconds of the landscape: beautiful sunset, relaxing noise.

-You will walk hands in hands, silently, enjoying each other company. 

-At a moment you will both seat down in the sand and cuddle a bit, looking at the sunset. 

-This man is perfect. Just leave Shanks and choose Mihawk. Trust me. 


Sir crocodile :

-”Damn there is a seagull just above me, she is going to shit on me. “

-”DAMN YOU SEAGULL GET OUT OF HERE !”

-(Him chasing the seagull that poop on him. Leaving you alone). 

-(Him coming back with the dead seagull, showing it as a warning for the others seagull). 

-Trust me, Mihawk is the man for you.
