and a wog

eric clapton in 1976: “I used to be into dope, now I’m into racism. It’s much heavier, man. Fucking wogs, man. Fucking Saudis taking over London. Bastard wogs. Britain is becoming overcrowded and Enoch will stop it and send them all back. The black wogs and c**ns and Arabs and fucking Jamaicans don’t belong here, we don’t want them here. This is England, this is a white country. We need to make clear to them they are not welcome. England is for white people, man. We are a white country. I don’t want fucking wogs living next to me with their standards. This is Great Britain, a white country, what is happening to us, for fuck’s sake? We need to vote for Enoch Powell, he’s a great man, speaking truth.  Throw the wogs out! Keep Britain white!”

also eric clapton: rips off black blues music for his whole career, resented jimi henrix bc jimi rekt him in every way, does shitty cover of i shot the sherrif by bob marley, was in the yardbirds a band that had wood for using indian sitar music, collaborated with bb king one of his idols, was influenced by ravi shankar and did a concert w his daughter anouksha, literally looks like a melted candle

That despised half-caste boy I knew, crying himself to sleep. That shunned little wog who had not a friend in the world aside from me. He could kill. God, he wanted to. You remember late at night in our room, over the hookah, listing the names of all the boys who had insulted you? The recitation of your potential victims. Your nightly prayers. That anger inside you, all that rage. Have you lost it?

The writer for hiveswap explained callie and caliborn are 16yrs old at their introduction in the comic twitter. this was after ppl were freaking out when it was implied that callie was dating roxy (everyone thought roxy was much older)

Yeah, we saw that, and we disregarded it for several reasons. It’s not *technically* WOG since it wasn’t Hussie, we already had this stuff written and this interpretation nailed down, and we’ve been disregarding most things connected to post-retcon HS canon since 2015. So for the purposes of TLC at least, the cherubs are indeed younger. Their exact age is never specified in-text, but the other characters find it noticeable. 

But in keeping with the spirit of things, you are free to disregard US. It’s not like it changes much. We just thought it was much funnier this way.

Could you do a comparison Anna O'Byrne's 'Before The Performance' LND wigs? I know the one used in Melbourne DVD in 2012 was used in the Sydney run at the end of 2011 when they filmed the promos video, I was really curious as to why they changed the wigs. Not that I mind. The curls in front of the pin on top were meh. Also, do you know why they cut Christine dropping Raouls rose? And is ot just me or is the Sysney promo shots (before wog change) have black gloves instead of blue during LND

Ah, you mean these wigs?

I agree, I don’t mind the change either - when the first pictures came out, I remember someone commenting that the wig looked likes a series of “corn rows” or something, and that’s all I can think of now. I think that’s probably the main reason - apperance, or maybe maintenance. The second wig just looks better and more natural. Funnily, I thought the first wig actually bore some resemblance to Emmy Rossum’s wig in the 2004 movie, mainly the way it’s pulled back from the forehead and features rows of curls. But it’s a superficial resemblance and probably unintentional:

As for the newer wig, I thought the bangs looked a lot like the World Tour wigs - not front curls, but these wavy, large side bangs. Compare to Emilie Lynn’s wig. The color and the bottom curls are different, of course, but I did wonder if there was some inspiration being taken there, especially as the World Tour has been to Australia:

I’m not too sure what you mean by them cutting Christine dropping the Phantom’s rose, but if it was something that you saw live and it was cut from the DVD, I wouldn’t know about it - my only experience of LND in Australia is the DVD, so I can’t comment on stuff that was cut. And while it might be lighting, it does seem like the color of the gloves was changed from black to blue. I would chalk it up to changes in costuming between promo pictures and when they started performances.

So are you a sailor? If so what ship were you stationed on? Rank/rate? How many years? Did you get your ESWS? Are you a shellback or a slimy wog?

I got out of the Navy after 10.5 years as an officer.  So, no ESWS for me, but I did earn my SWO pin as an ensign; I later got out as an LT.  I was on three ships, taught at one school, and was later on the staff of a 3 star admiral.

My ships:
CG
LCS-2 (precommissioning crew)
DDG (Flight IIA)

And yes, I am definitely a shellback.   Crossed the line on my first ship and then again on my third.  It’s much more fun as a shellback!
