and all the other francos out there

So, after some discourse™ about Yastin Biver and the remix of “despacito”, talking with other latines, i realized that gringxs feel like we need to “thank” their artists because they talked two sentences in one of our languages, meanwhile latine artist are killing everyone by just being talented af. I wanted to make a little post praising some (let’s be honest, if we list every latine that fits here, we will have a bible) of the latine artists that are fucking awesome in more than one language:

Better covers for “Despacito”: Tritom / Maxi Espindola and Agustín Bernasconi / Carolina García / Karen Méndez, Pablo Saavedra & Juacko / Boyce Avenue / J.Fla / Susan Prieto (bachata) / Gabi Luthai / Nix / Zhamira Zambrano / Santos & Ledes / Naju y Tute (pop rock) / LOS 5  (there’s a mix between spanish speakers and non-spanish speakers. I included the last ones because they at least know the lyrics of the song, even if their accents are not perfect :) )

There’s people that honestly believe that we don’t like the remix because we don’t like “gringxs” singing in our languges or because we don’t accept them because they have accents (arguments from gringxs. Like, en serio?) Anyways,i’m gonna share with you some non-latine artists that sang in our languages that are knew and loved in latinoamerica:

Extra: latin american version of other songs, because they are….better: shape of you* / thinking out loud* / the beast and the beauty (bachata)* / all of me* / love yourself* / despacito / paisaje / paisaje (cumbia) / je l'aime a mourir

*: means that they have more songs in that language.

If you are latine, please add more songs!

(i’m tonta and i forgot to thank @dasakuryo @dixonette1013 and @keith-koganes for helping me with this post!)

Troy was lead to believe- by Gabriella- that Ryan was trying to move in on Gabriella and steal her from Troy.

Gabriella breaks up with Troy.

The next time that Troy speaks to Ryan, he apologizes to him for all of Ryan’s hard work choreographing an act for the Wildcats in the Lava Springs talent show seemingly going to waste,

expresses that he’s “looking forward” to watching Ryan play baseball, and caps it off with-

FYI: Troy was single, at this point in the movie.

Summary: After losing your mother to cancer, your uncle Dylan was the only family you had. Since your mother had helped him plan his revenge against Thadeus, you couldn’t help but be drawn into the mess. Dylan kept his life with you separate from the FBI and from the Eye but that all changes when he asks you to take Henley’s place as a Horseman.

Note: I love Dave Franco. I love Mark Ruffalo. This is just combining those two together and I hope you guys enjoy and want to see more of this series. It will take place all through and a little after the second Now You See Me. I also wanted to have some scenes in between the major plots, like flights and other trips. What better way to come out of hiatus than with a new series?


“Show me another one!” You demanded, your eyes bright with amazement. Your uncle gave you a small smile.

“Sorry kid.” He ruffled your hair and stood up from his seat beside you. “I have to get back to work. But I’ll be back as soon as I can, okay?” You pouted.

“But what if he shows up again?” You wondered, thinking about the tall creepy man who often came to visit  your mother.

“Then you give me a call and I’ll be here sooner than you can say Abracadabra, okay?” He pulled you in for a long hug. “Tell your mom I said hi. And remember-” He waved your card in front of your face. “The closer you look…”

“The less you see.” You finished, snatching the card from his fingers. A Jack of Hearts. Your favorite card. He gave you one final kiss on the forehead before walking out of the hospital waiting room. “Uncle Dylan!” You yelled before he stepped into the elevator. He turned back towards you. You held up the card in your hand and tossed it to him. When he picked it up, he received the Queen of Spades. He flashed you an impressed smirk as the elevator doors closed.

Thirteen Years Later

It was a tough crowd to please. Or at least, tough to please while still wearing clothing. The group of frat guys in front of you were practically drooling, but none of them were really impressed with your tricks.You decided to start the main event.

“For my next trick, I am going to need a volunteer….” You dangled a pair of handcuffs in your hand. “To help me put on these.” The crowd’s hands shot up, each boy shouting wildly at you to pick them. One in particular stood out. He was grinning at you like you were a piece of meat and he had a very expensive looking gold watch. Perfect. “How about you?” You pointed to him and his friends hollered and whistled as he jumped up onto your makeshift stage. “Would you kindly make sure that these are secure and tight?”

“Anything you want sweetheart.” He purred and you faked a smile. He strapped on the cuffs, sending a thumbs up to his friends in the audience. You were so going to enjoy this.

“As you can see, these are not  faulty cuffs.” You tried to pull your hands apart, the chain clanking.

“Kinky!” A very drunk nineteen year old shouted. You winked in their direction, biting back your disgust as pretty-boy took a good long look at your ass. You kindly ushered him off of the small stage.

“Now if one of you would close that curtain there.” He shrugged and started pulling the curtain across the stage. “A girl’s gotta have a little privacy.” As the curtain fully closed, you made sure they weren’t peaking through before picking the locks on the cuffs and hitting the button on the remote in your pocket. You soared down into the trap door right as the boy yelled.

“That bitch took my wallet! And my watch!” He threw open the curtain but it was too late. You were gone… and about seven hundred bucks richer.

Meet The Actor;; Seth Rogen

Full Name: Seth Aaron Rogen

Birthday: April 15th 1982

Born: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Parents: Sandy Belogus and Mark Rogen

Film History:

With an acting career that began in 1999 and has not stopped since, giving him 77 credits, Seth Rogen has to be one of the most talked about comedians on the planet. I know he’s one of my favorite comedy actors but his type of comedy, which can only be described as ‘stoner’ comedy, isn’t for everyone.

With memorable roles such as ‘Eager Cameraman’ in Anchorman, Cal in The 40-Year-Old-Virgin, Ben Stone in Knocked Up, Officer Michaels in Superbad, Dale Denton in Pineapple Express, Zack in Zack and Miri Make A Porno and one of my favorites Mac Radner in the hilarious flick Neighbors – just to name a few! Rogen has become a very well known household laugh.. I mean name. But lets be honest here.. That laugh. It’s definitely memorable.

With such a limited background in genre (let’s face it – what movie has Seth been apart of that doesn’t involve at least a bong?) he has to be one of the most influential people in cinema, along with his team of fellow actors and producers he’s left a blazed trail behind him that will keep all of them a household name long after their careers have ended.

Not only has he left a high bar in cinema with his stoner films but he’s also been apart of projects from a one episode stint in Dawsons Creek to lending his voice to the Kung Fu Panda films.

One of his most talked about movies has to be Sausage Party. The animated feature that includes other actors such as Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, Bill Hader, Selma Hayek, Anders Holm, Iris Apatow and Seth Rogen film alum’s Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd and James Franco. The premise of the film is that a bunch of food believes once they’re sold they go into the promise land but once they find out what really happens they set out to stop mankind. They could’ve just renamed it 420: The Stoners Guide To The Galaxy. The world was divided by this film, I honestly loved it and was really rooting for the hot dog and the bun to finally do something more than just ‘touch tips’, but I know plenty of people that were offended by the flick and others let their kids watch it thinking it was just a harmless childs movie but quickly threw it out of the DVD player once they realized it was anything but. Silly, silly people.

The other ‘most talked about’ film was one he worked on, and starred in, with close friend and fellow actor James Franco – The Interview. An American political satire spy comedy flick with a very controversial topic that literally almost started a war, and was banned in some countries due to bombing threats that were received this film brought fear and excitement to audiences and filmgoers alike. Nevertheless it earned over a million dollars on its opening day and by the end of its cinema run it had grossed 6.1 million dollars on the box office. Not bad for a film that had most of its publicity and television advertising cancelled due to the ‘declaration of war’ had the movie been released.

With Seth’s last films Bad Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Sausage Party released between six and nine months ago we’re about due for another Seth Rogen flick. Good news! A film titled B.O.O: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations has been announced, Friends from College a television series is in the pre-production stage, Zeroville is completed and set to be released later this year and my personal favorite that I’m most excited for is The Disaster Artist (previously titled The Masterpiece) will also be released later this year.

Interesting Facts:

Seth works with, and has been working with since college, childhood friend Evan Goldberg with whom the two main characters of Superbad were modeled after. He and Evan have written multiple projects together including Neighbors and Neighors 2: Sorority Rising, The Interview, Pineapple Express and of course Superbad, on which they had been writing since they were thirteen.

Seth started doing stand up comedy before he was cast in Judd Apatow’s short lived but well regarded television series Freaks and Geeks, in which he starred with other well known names like Jason Segel and close friend James Franco. Freaks and Geeks only lasted one season but it launched all their careers and they’ve worked together on multiple projects since.

At sixteen Seth’s parents were both out of work and around the same time he landed his role in Judd’s show Freaks and Geeks and became the main wage earner in the house, relocating his family, after they had to sell their family home, to Los Angeles.

‘Félicité’

Alain Gomis’ character study of a struggling single mother in Kinshasa evolves into something far more sensually complex than it initially seems.

Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans, goes the old saying — though for the variously stymied characters of “Félicité,” life hits them when they have no plan at all. A loose, vibrant fourth feature film from Franco-Senegalese director Alain Gomis, “Félicité” likewise builds to a fever of energy and activity while never sketching out more than the bones of a narrative: It’s a film in which a hard-earned smile, the contact between one person’s skin and another’s, or a serene strain of music amid the everyday noise can qualify as a dramatic event. Following a proudly independent club singer through the ragged streets of Kinshasa as she seeks a way to save her hospitalized son, Gomis’ latest is far from the miserablist issue drama that synopsis portends, instead weaving a sensual, sometimes hopeful, sometimes disturbing urban tapestry with threads of image, sound, poetry, and song. 

Everyone pretends to be normal, but underneath, everyone is living some other life you don’t know about, and if we had a camera on us at all times, we could watch each other’s tapes and find out what each of us is really like.

Children of Húrin - Beleg Cuthalion -


The Tengwar says his name as well. And it is my best tengwar yet, so I’m very happy. I should try to write it more often!^^

Beleg is one of my favorite elves, though I might not show it as I have not drawn him properly before now. I must say that I am very happy with what I did here, though I really do need to scan it properly when I get home. This photo really doesnt do the shades any justice.

As Túrin’s companion, Tolkien once again show us the value of true friendship, and even after 100 years that message is as strong as it can be, especially in a society where we hardly give heed or respect to true friends, and everyone are connected and alone at the same time. I think we would all be lucky to have friendship, like between Turin and Beleg, the kind of friends that comes through and dont give up on each other no matter what.

My fancast for Beleg turned out, quite suddenly, to be Dave Franco, and here he is inspired by him. I used no direct reference on any of it, maybe most of all the forest, if anything. And I am quite pleased to say I might have cracked the code to make foliage, which I previously have not understood with pencils. So its fun to see development.

Let me know what you think, and I am always open for tolkien-based discussions of theories. So dont be shy!

Cheers, Iggy

Funny how new facts pop up and make you doubt that there’s any goodness in life. Everyone pretends to be normal and be your friend, but underneath, everyone is living some other life you don’t know about and if only we had a camera on us at all times, we could go and watch each other’s tapes and find out what each of us was really like…” - ― James Franco, Palo Alto

When I was in warmups I looked over at [Ovechkin] and we smiled at each other type thing. That was good to see him out there. He’s huge in person, so that’s something I learned. …That was a dream. I’ve looked up to him since he’s been 18 years old. I still watch his highlights all the time. It was fun to be out there 3-on-3 [in overtme] with him. … It was all good fun. It was fun to watch him play out there live.

my film professor in Spain was this young-ish woman who was really–vivid. She wasn’t beautiful, she didn’t dress either flamboyantly or dramatically or particularly chicly, there was nothing remarkable in her appearance, but she just seemed very alive. She spoke faster than any of our other professors, but I was always able to understand her best, just because she gestured so much and used the force of her personality and the cadence of her voice to express her meaning. Anyways, she played us this song called Libertad Sin Ira which she said when it came out was played out of cars on loudspeakers all the time until she grew sick of it and it was stuck in everyone’s heads, it’s about the end of the Franco regime, anyways I love it and it’s on this, my belated October playlist.

YouNow with Shawn - Imagine

(Pretend the boys are still doing the whole magcon thing and you are a member. You and Mahogany are the only ladies in it. Anyway thanks for reading and I hope you like it!)

—–

“Hey y/n, wanna try something new?” asked your best friend, Shawn, as he grabbed his laptop and sat on your hotel bed.

“Umm I guess” you answered. Not really sure what to expect.

During the whole magcon tour, you had become more and more attached to Shawn. Sure, you were good friends with all the other boys too, and Mahogany was always fun to hang out with, but for some reason you and Shawn were just drawn to each other.

“We’re going to do a YouNow!” he said excitedly.

“A what?” you asked, confused.

“A YouNow!” he said again. “It’s like a broadcasting thing where you can interact with everyone watching. Let me just announce it on Twitter first.”

“Oh, okay” you smiled. You’ve never done something like that before, and it sounded like fun. But you were a little nervous about it. Since you were new to magcon, and a female, you got quite a bit of hate from some of the fans. But a lot of them were super nice to you, so it all balanced out.

“Ready?” he asked, signing into his account and starting the broadcast.

“Yup” you said smiling.

Once the broadcast started, Shawn said “Hey everyone! I’m here with y/n and we’ll be answering questions today!”

“Hey guys” you said somewhat shyly, and waved at the camera.

Instantly the questions came flooding in. So far, the majority of the female fans were angry about you and Shawn sitting on a bed.

Shawn tried to answer as kindly as possible, saying “guys, we’re on tour and in y/n’s hotel room, there’s not a whole lot of room where two people can sit together here.”

There was some annoyance in his voice, and it kind of hurt you. It almost sounded like he was defending himself.

Deciding to change the subject, you read a real question out loud: “Who are some celebrities you guys think are attractive?” and you said the first person that came to your head, “Beyonce.”

After, you realized that they probably wanted a male celebrity from you, so you added “Dave Franco.” You saw Shawn make a jealous face.

But shortly after, you were relieved as you saw Shawn return to his normal self, and he answered the question. You two answered more questions for about 10 minutes, until things turned weird again.

All of the fans began to ship you with the other magcon boys. You saw the names of Gilinsky, Matt, and Nash. But most of all you saw Cameron’s name pop up. Looking to your side, you noticed Shawn looked upset, and he was fidgeting with everything near him. He also wouldn’t look at you. You frowned and asked the fans, nicely, to stop.

“How about we ask new questions?” you said to the camera.

But they wouldn’t stop, so you “fake read” a question.

“What’s currently your favorite song?” you asked yourself. Smiling, you then said “well, recently I’ve been listening to the song Show You by the lovely Shawn Mendes, on repeat.” When you said Shawn’s name, you nudged him slightly with your elbow.

You could tell his mood lifted when you said that, because he put his arm around you. Answering some more questions, Shawn couldn’t keep a smile off his face. Knowing that that was because of what you said, you couldn’t keep a smile off your’s either.

Reading a comment outloud, you said “Shawn, your smile is so cute.”

You turned your head and looked at him, and still smiling, he looked back. His smile was really cute. Breaking your eye contact and looking back at the computer, you smirked and said “I agree.”

Immediately, on the tiny screen that showed you two, you watched Shawn’s face turn bright red as he looked away.

“Alright guys,” he said, “I think it’s time for us to go. But thank you for the nice comments and questions.”

“Yeah it was a lot of fun and we’ll do it again sometime!” you promised.

You both said thank you one last time and said bye together. After Shawn turned off the YouNow, he sat there and looked at you. But you refused to look at him. All you did was stare ahead at the wall, and bite your lip.

“Y/n” he said, and you turned to face him.

He took your cheek in his hand, and your heart raced. You took a deep breath and waited for his lips to meet yours. It seemed like it took forever, but finally, it happened. His bottom lip fit perfectly in between both your lips, and you twisted your hands into his hair. Breaking away from the kiss momentarily, Shawn slid the laptop off your lap, and he pulled you onto him and continued your kiss in a more comfortable position.

But shortly after this position change, there was a loud banging on your door. Slightly irritated, you got up to answer it.

You opened the door and Nash spoke before you had a chance to say anything. He had obviously ran up the stairs and to your room, and then he said in between breaths: “was watching your YouNow… was lagging but got here as soon as I could… didn’t log off… everyone saw that…”

Instinctively, your chin dropped and you shut the door on him without saying anything. You went to over to Shawn to tell him what just happened, but he overheard what Nash said to you, and he already turned off the YouNow. But for good this time.

Neither of you knew what to say, but you did know one thing. You were eager to continue what you two were doing before you were interrupted. You silently closed the laptop and set it on the table. From Shawn’s sitting position on the edge of the bed, you pushed him so he was laying down, and you got on top of him. Smiling, you crashed your lips into his, and kissed him again. And this time, you weren’t interrupted.
