and the new directions are on their third

so hey, I haven’t watched the new episode but I’ve got the sense of how people are feeling so I’m addressing young fans right now.

when I was big into the Sherlock fandom, I was fresh out of middle school, a mess of emotions and desperate for something to latch onto. Sherlock was that. I still really like it (well. I like the first 3 seasons) now, mind, but it went in a direction I was less into in the third season, so I was detached already. but if I were at the level I used to be after all this?
it’s okay that you feel hurt. something you love has changed. and yeah, okay, Moffattis can write the show they wanna write, but you have the right to say you don’t like it, damn it. you have the right to demand answers to plot holes. you are an audience member. you matter there.
and you have the right to stop watching.
if something is going a way you don’t like. if you can’t support it anymore. if you just don’t want to watch as what you love gets twisted, then hell, you can. it might suck, but sometimes you ha e to make decisions like this, and it’s shitty.
here’s what you do: you write. you draw. you act. you film. you say ‘this is the story I wanted. I needed.’ and you make it happen. and maybe it’s fanfic and maybe it’s original fiction, whatever. you throw your middle fingers in the air and double your efforts.

We’re excited to announce the premiere date for the highly anticipated, new TWIN PEAKS. The 18-hour limited event series will debut with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

J.J. Abrams’ audio commentary for the 3D-Collector’s Edition of Star Wars The Force Awakens

So, my copy of the Collectors Edition of TFA was mailed to me on Friday. It’s not actually supposed to come out here until Monday but I had it pre-ordered and thanks to CDON.COM’s early shipment, I got it a little sooner. It’s a 3-disc set that contains the film’s original theatrical release on Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray + there’s an additional third disc for the bonus material. Although most of the bonus features have already been released in some format previously. The set looks like this:

The most interesting new feature on it though is J.J. Abrams’ audio commentary, that I just finished watching and I wanted to share some things the director commented on it. It wasn’t really all that spoilery about things to come. But, there were some very intriguing things, that he said, that could possibly have some significanse to the discussion about the direction of Rey’s and Kylo’s journey. So now, I’m just going to go through the movie again and write down some things, that he had to say about it. Edit. This actually ended up being quite a long post. And by long I mean really long. So be prepared, you have been warned :)

Second Edit. Here’s a link to a subsequent masterpost with additional quotes from J.J. Abrams.

me: the clique is so fake deep lol!

also me: on june 24th 2006 the panic at the disco band and crew went skinny dipping in myrtle beach, as confirmed by greta morgan of the hush sound in an interview. later that night, a cast member posted about brendon’s virginity, or obvious lack thereof, on her blog. in the early hours of morning, george ryan ross the third, former lyricist for panic at the disco, posted the following on his livejournal: The moon bred new Atlantic life tonight.the salt burned you right out of my eyes.and secrets we’re not proud of were taken with the tide. We were all newborns with blurred vision and no sense of direction.Today I saw cancer, cigarettes and shortness of breath. this is why I walk to the ocean.swim with jellyfish.I may never get this chance again. this is why if you want to kiss you should kiss. If you want to cry you should cry, and if you want to live you should live. You don’t have to love me. You already did. At least enough to keep me smiling from South Carolina to’s for lovers (orjustfriends) This is why I do it. this, posted what must have been near immediately after swimming naked with his band and crew (namely lead singer brendon urie) must have been brewing in his mind during the events of that night. why would he write a poem about falling in love with his best friend at that specific point in time if it was not directly related to the events of that night (with BRENDON)? what were the “secrets they’re not proud of”? it makes sense that they may not have been proud of giving in to their obvious feelings for one another. in 2009, after the band split, remaining members brendon urie and spencer smith released “new perspective” as a single. brendon claims that the song, containing the line “i feel the salty waves come in//i feel them crash against my skin” had been something he had worked on YEARS prior to it’s release and once introduced it as being about “a dude, naked”. with the ocean imagery and that introduction it makes sense that it would be about that fateful night at myrtle beach, does it not? ryan ross and brendon urie were in love, ryden was real

Researcher: What Happens When Abused Men Call Domestic Violence Hotlines And Shelters?

About a third of all domestic violence injuries are suffered by men. At the conference “From Ideology to Inclusion 2009: New Directions in Domestic Violence Research and Intervention.”, Dr. Hines detailed her findings on what happens when abused men call domestic violence hotlines or shelters seeking help. Of the abused men who called domestic violence hotlines, 64% were told that they “only helped women.” In 32% of the cases, the abused men were referred to batterers’ programs. Another 25% were given a phone number to call that turned out to be a batterers’ program. A little over a quarter of them were given a reference to a local program that helped. Overall, only 8% of the men who called hotlines classified them as “very helpful,” whereas 69% found them to be “not at all helpful.” Sixteen percent said the people at the hot line “dismissed or made fun of them.” One abused man said: “They laughed at me and told me I must have done something to deserve it if it happened at all.” Another said: “They asked how much I weighed and how much she weighed and then hung up on me…I was told by this agency that I was full of BS.” Twelve percent of the hotlines accused the man of being the batterer or responsible for the abuse. One abused man said: “They told me women don’t commit domestic violence – it must have been my fault.” Another said: “They accused me of trying to hide my "abuse” of her by claiming to be a victim, and they said that I was nothing more than a wimp.“ Of the men who sought help by contacting local domestic violence programs, only 10% found them to be "very helpful,” whereas 65% found them to be “not at all helpful.” One abused man said: They just laughed and hung up the phone. Another said: “They didn’t really listen to what I said. They assumed that all abusers are men and said that I must accept that I was the abuser. They ridiculed me for not leaving my wife, ignoring the issues about what I would need to do to protect my six children and care for them.” The domestic violence establishment is in general controlled by adherents to the feminist Duluth/‘Man-as-Perp/Woman-as-Victim’ model and it’s time for change.

I’m not here to blame anybody. I’m not here to criticize anybody, but facts are facts: when you lose the White House to the least popular candidate in the history of America; when you lose the Senate; when you lose the House, and when two-thirds of governors in this country are Republicans, it is time for a new direction for the Democratic Party.

Headcanons about the Mark after closing the Breach and before Trespasser

Basically some angst headcanons:

  • Closing the Breach for the final time is what causes for the Anchor to start spreading.
  • Coming in direct touch with the Orb does something to the Mark. In Haven the Inquisitor never touches the orb and the Mark is lashing out just by being near it. After holding, using and crashing the Orb, the Mark is bleeding magic for several days/weeks.
  • The Inquisitor spends the majority of their time all around Thedas, sealing rifts. With every new rift they close, they can feel the Fade pull stronger at the Mark.
  • Non mage Inquisitors suddenly have increasing amounts of raw Fade power pouring from their hand. It’s frightening and uncomfortable, like having that third arm they barely know how to use turn and slap them in the face.
  • Mage Inquisitors begin feeling alterations to their magic. It never felt quite the same ever since they got the Anchor but now it’s affecting them more and more, causing for spells to overcharge and explode or act plain weirdly for reasons they can’t explain.
  • All Inquisitors start hearing more and more of demons calling and buzzing at the back of their heads. The calling gets worse as they seal more rifts and demons are attracted to the Fade opening that is the Mark. Mage Inquisitors try to block it, grow afraid of reaching through their connection to the Fade too much. Non mage Inquisitors think they’re going crazy in the beginning.
  • The less rifts there are in Thedas, the more the Anchor spreads as the Fade pulls on it with more force.
  • The Inquisitor grows accustomed to wearing long sleeves or shoulder gloves on their left arm to hide the extend of the corruption from the general public. Almost a year after closing the Breach, they switch to armour cause the Mark has grown strong enough to glow under any fabric.
  • The metal of each armour glove slowly erodes under the Mark’s light. It’s to keep the public from knowing in the beginning but later, when the damage is too much, they start hiding it from the inner circle as well.
  • Continuous, ever present pain. Every rift seal hurts more than the previous and after the first year, the Inquisitor can barely stop themselves from crying out in anguish while on the job. Their fingers begin to lose their sense of touch and become uncapable of detailed work.
  • The Inquisitor can tell this is going to kill them in the end. The thought of cutting the arm off is always in the back of their head but how can they suggest it to their advisors? Requests about rifts are still arriving every day- and so they hide the damage and press on.
  • The chronic pain affects their feelings. They slowly grow bitter and easy to snap though they try to keep themselves in check.
  • The last known rift is sealed a few weeks before Trespasser. It’s a big one and the Inquisitor can feel their arm tingle all day long as they fight their way to it.
  • When the Mark gets connected to it, the bond is abnormal. The Anchor charges up and the Inquisitor shouts for everyone to stand back but they are too late. The rift gets sealed and the Mark explodes.
  • No casualties but many injured, the Inquisitor amongst them, the fingers of their left hand shattered. Thankfully, no other rifts are spotted after that one. The soldiers present are warned and no whispers of the “incident” spread outside their ranks.
  • The Inquisitor arrives at the Winter Palace in great pain and almost sleepless for a month, demons whispering at the edges of their thoughts and their hand leaking magic.
  • Not headbatting nobles unconscious is a huge feat for them.

War On Everyone Review


Corrupt cops Terry Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Michael Peña) have a cushy lifestyle, framing hoodlums and stealing narcotics as they patrol their beat in Albuquerque. But when an evil British lord (Theo James) pings onto their radar, they find themselves in way, way over their heads.


“It starts and ends with the script,” says one lowlife to another in War On Everyone, as they disapprovingly watch a low-grade porn flick. “If you ain’t got a good script, you ain’t got shit.” Fortunately, the person who wrote and directed this coal-dark crime comedy is John Michael McDonagh, the Irish auteur behind The Guard and Calvary. Both of those films are mordantly funny, unpredictable and set on the rain-moistened Emerald Isle. With his third feature, he has shifted locales to sun-baked New Mexico; but thankfully McDonagh’s delightful weirdness remains intact.

War On Everyone is a spin on maybe the most hackneyed genre of them all, the buddy-cop movie. The customary tropes are all in place: Terry and Bob ride around in their ice-blue Monte Carlo coupe bickering and stopping for cheeseburgers, reporting in sporadically to their grouchy superior (Paul Reiser). There’s a foot chase originating in a strip club and soundtracked by a Fun Lovin’ Criminals track, while another scene riffs on Beverly Hills Cop. But for every moment that seems derivative, there’s a winningly absurd scenario or inspired touch. Terry and Bob, whose names may or may not be a tribute to The Likely Lads, are introduced in hot pursuit of a mime. (“I’ve always wondered… if you hit a mime, does he make a sound?” ponders Terry, shortly before finding out.) There’s also a silly running joke involving our heroes’ ongoing feud with a SWAT team.

The bad-to-the-bones lead duo are joyously over-the-top: Terry, who has thrush and swigs bottles of beer at breakfast, is a lawman so excessively immoral he even outdoes Chief Wiggum from the famous ‘Bad Cops’ skit in The Simpsons, while Bob makes for a fine foil as the family-man partner who’s far from squeaky-clean himself. The stars are clearly having fun, too — this is redemption for Skarsgård after his bland-Tarzan misstep this summer. The villains they’re up against, meanwhile, are intentionally a lot less funny, but memorably peculiar. Theo James, best known for his role in the Divergent series, comes close to stealing the whole show as louche, Homer-literate aristocrat-scumbag James Mangan, not least because he dominates the best shot of the movie as a Steadicam prowls with him through his debauched mansion. Only a late reveal involving him is misjudged, so bleak that it threatens to tip over the whole movie.

There are other flaws: some scenes aren’t nearly as funny as they think they are (an exchange about Steven Soderbergh’s Out Of Sight starts and ends without scoring a laugh) and the plot itself fails to build up much in the way of suspense. But McDonagh — cutting with old-school line-wipes, cranking up the Glen Campbell — is clearly having a blast. The feeling’s contagious.


A thinking person’s Bad Boys, this off-kilter indie crime comedy introduces two deliriously warped lawmen to the screen.

The third ‘M’

I’m stuck with this idea running a marathon over my braincells, so I kinda couldn’t resist writing this for one of my bebs, Ice’s Bday, soooo… HAPPY BIRTHDAY my cause of depression @illustraice who don’t let me marry her food (mean bastard). For you just to know that I love you with all the skype times and your crazy explaining skills bc you sure are wonderful! Have fun with this one and I hope you’ll like it!

There’s always been two things that interested him: music and messing with poeple. Now Natsu - the saxophonist - may found the third thing that could make him an addict.

1953, New Orleans
Long fingers were running along the pipe, pushing buttons over and over, the heaving of his chest giving captivating sight. The shadows of his eyelashes stretched to his cheekbones in the dim lights, his rosé coloured hair ruffled and totally not in the best shape as the strands stuck to every possible direction of the compass rose.
However the saxophonist had no mind over it as he blew out the best melodies of his instrument that Lucy had ever heard in her life.
She studied his attire, a somewhat white shirt’s sleeves rolled up to his elbows, battered, black-shoed foot tapping with the rhythm of his solo.
She hummed in delight, imperceptibly nibbling on her lower lip, clearly interested in his skills.
Lucy studied the thin sheen of sweat over his forehead, how the deep valleys seemed engraved in his skin in concentration, how he bent his body in an arch just to be able to make those sounds became music and it blended with all the other instruments. His improvisation was immensely good!
Tapping her perfectly manicured nails to the beat, she continued on with watching the man with the interesting hair colour, unable not to think about the legends she heard from her maids: saxophonist being the biggest swindlers of all time!
She was hardly able to hold back a snort. No way that someone so focused, and enthusiastic about music could be a bad ma—! “…ucy! Miss Lucy!”
Besides, businessmen were far more the worst.
Taking a deep breath, she was able to calm her vigorously beating heart as she slowly turned back to her dinner partners, her father with a snobbish and menacing expression over his face, and other businessmen, in suits and with their usual Havannan cigar in place. Some of them were already smoking like chimneys in the winter night.

Chapter List


Part Six

You tensed your jaw as you walked down the hallway, firm steps leading you towards your office. Your eyes were fixed on the wall in the direction you were walking, and you rolled your shoulders gently as you walked as if to warm up for the evening ahead of you.

After waking up in bed a few days ago, you had quickly realised what happened. Despite the pounding in your head, your surroundings told you something was different. You never slept in your bed. You always fell asleep in your office chair, after having stared at a sheet of numbers all night long.

Henri Cole on what it’s like to see his poetry illuminated by the artist Jenny Holzer:

Seeing my poems projected in this way, onto landscapes and buildings, I feel that the words leap out from a different zone, where they are observed as much as read. Language is more direct, open, unself-conscious, precise, and human. It doesn’t belong to me anymore but to the atmosphere, and this makes me happy.

Dear, Lifeline players,

Hey, so, I just wanna do a good deed here and say, considering I see a lot of new people discovering these games: yes, there are 3, as of now, yes the second game is not Taylor, it follows a girl named Arika and is more based in magic, yes the third game is, once again Taylor and seems like a direct sequel to the first, however, DON’T SKIP THE SECOND GAME. As, by now, I’m sure you know, they’re are several possible outcomes to all of these games, and it seems, the stories will at some point, INTERTWINE. Without giving any spoilers, depending on your choices throughout, they already have. I, too, am partial to Taylor, but Arika is pretty rad too if you give her a chance. DON’T SKIP THE SECOND GAME.
