I wonder what happens when you die. Do your regrets disappear? Are sins atoned for? Would anyone be sad if I died?  Would something good have happened tomorrow? I guess none of it really matters.  ( if you ever cry alone again, or even if the day comes when you find just living to be painful, then i promise i’ll save you again and again.)

Does it really matter if Mia was there at the show when one of the songs he sang with Michael Thomas Grant was Good for Gone by The Shins, which is a very depressing song that obviously talks about not wanting to be committed with a woman and being trapped in a loveless relationship?

Untie me, I’ve said no vows
The train is getting way too loud
I gotta leave here my girl
Get on with my lonely life

Just leave the ring on the rail
For the wheels to nullify

Until this turn in my head
I let you stay and you paid no rent
I spent twelve long months on the lam

That’s enough sitting on the fence
For the fear of breaking dams

I find a fatal flaw
In the logic of love
And go out of my head

You love a sinking stone
That’ll never elope
So get used to the lonesome
Girl, you must atone some
Don’t leave me no phone number there

It took me all of a year
To put the poison pill to your ear
But now I stand on honest ground, on honest ground

You want to fight for this love
But honey you cannot wrestle a dove
So baby it’s clear

You want to jump and dance
But you sat on your hands
And lost your only chance

Go back to your hometown
Get your feet on the ground
And stop floating around

I find a fatal flaw
In the logic of love
And go out of my head

You love a sinking stone
That’ll never elope
So get used to used to the lonesome
Girl, you must atone some
Don’t leave me no phone number there

I dont want to come across as religious in any sense but I just wanted to point out the symbolism in this scene. The Christian setting. The classic carol. It all reminds me of Jesus. That he died for us - he hang, humiliated, on the cross fragile, hurt and wounded. Even was just that; full of greif and despair thinking Isak would never in this universe, his universe, be with him ever again. And he just wanted humanity to know - remember - that he would be there for him no matter what.


And with the historic conditions of the church - this really tells another story then that of ignorance and hate. A story of what Jesus really tought us - Atonement, Sacrifice and above all unconditional Love.

Coliseum

Am I the only one who was laughing while watching this one? I don’t know, but there’s something fun about this episode that made me laugh. Sure, it was not intended to be a comic episode. It was actually dark. Why do I have this feeling that when it comes to Sasuke, everything is on the dark side? Maybe because of his black hair. Lol! Or maybe, it’s because Sasuke has gone through the dark side, that’s why. But of course, we all know that he’s now atoning for his sins. And it seems he has been gone for quite too long, that even his friends are getting kind of tired of waiting.

We’re also wondering how long will you still go on, Sasuke. But if it means making you feel better about your self, then take all the time that you need.

But surely, it’s a breath of fresh air to see that Sasuke is now working for the Hidden Leaf again.

I love that exchange, though I must admit, I find Yamato a little creepy. Hihi! Am I the only one?

I still love you though, Captain Yamato. ;)




So this story (the whole arc, actually) is centered towards Sasuke. That is why I understand we get to see familiar faces from his side of the story.

I got to say, I kind of enjoy these three. Especially that “Sasuke Dear” part. Haha! Though, I’m not sure so sure about the Orochimaru part. 

Okay. Let’s not be blunt. Nice to see you again, Orochimaru!




I kind of figured out that Sasuke will be the bait for that Fuushin. And that coliseum scene, it kind of gave me a lot of anime memories. Like, for 90′s babies out there like me. Do you remember Ghost Fighter and Flame of Recca? It’s just very nostalgic.


And then, Sasuke arrived to fight with that Futsu guy.

But when they’re beggining the fight, another exploding human appeared. Argh! Talking about a major cliff hanger. So it means we have to wait for another week for the continuation. Like, what?

But maybe, it’s all worth it. Sasuke is always worth it. Agree, everyone?



And so, another week. Have to remind myself to be patient. But before I forgot, I just have to say. I laughed so much with this episode because of this child… err, girl. Haha! I sure know a lot of viewers also enjoyed her. And for my final screen shots, let’s indulge with this cutee but very wise Chino.

XOXO

Donald Trump says he is not bothered by comparisons to Hitler
Trump said he's confident in his actions, even if others don't agree.

“They went through a whole list of things – they couldn’t go five miles from their homes, they weren’t allowed to use radios, flashlights,” Trump said. “Take a look at what FDR did many years ago, and he’s one of the most highly respected presidents… They named highways after him." 

Do no let him doublespeak, misdirect, or talk around the fact that he is advocating for a policy that represents some of the ugliest moments in American and world history and has been slowly but publicly atoned for by presidents of both parties: Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, and Bill Clinton. This includes the passing of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 to compensate survivors of internment and cruel, race-based policies of the FDR Administration. This is not OK

anonymous asked:

Didn't you hear? You cannot joke about wanting Erwin back/Erwin not being dead anymore... you have to get over it already. You are clogging the general tags!!1!

Mea culpa.  Let us atone for our sins by saying one Awful Father and five Hail Krugers and never mentioning The Commander Who Shall Not Be Named ever again, in the tags or out of them.

@bellamy-taft @intheshadowofsignificance I coined the term “Glass Syndrome” just now to describe the feeling of waiting for a fanfic to update. It may or may not have the caveat of not knowing WHEN it will update XD; (I’m so excited for Echo of Atonement’s second chapter I keep thinking it’ll update weekly like Glass did! I need to know what’ll happen with Yugi and his friends!)

Yom Kippur False Alarm

So, a few years ago, Yom Kippur was coming up and I really needed to ask forgiveness of a Gentile friend who I had failed a couple times that year, and even though the friend hadn’t mentioned it, it had been eating at me.  This friend didn’t really know anything about Judaism.

So I contacted him, by email, (we were in different countries at this time) and I said “I know that I failed you with [thing], and I just want to say how sorry I am.  I will try to fix it in the future. If I have done anything else that may have harmed you at any time in the past, knowingly or unknowingly, I am truly sorry.  I ask that you will forgive me.  I hope that you will accept my apology. Please let me know before 3 days from now.”

My friend promptly responded with the following: “Are you dying????”

The Moral of the Story: explain what Yom Kippur is to your gentile friends.

Atonement || Closed @ pmdsableyequeen

Several weeks had passed since Hopkins, Ken, Tucker, and Kelly had gotten sick, and two major things had changed. The older Sableye had left, and Dusknoir had started constructing a rudimentary shelter using a ground-down stone axe he’d made and several tree branches lashed together. Now it was just Dusknoir, the youngest four Sableye, and Jack…

Even so, Dusknoir seemed almost more withdrawn than ever. Once Hopkins, Ken, Tucker, and Kelly had recovered from their colds, he returned to being aloof. He worked hard, though still ate little, keeping to the shadows whenever he slept or took a break to relax.

To be perfectly honest… it wasn’t the most pleasant situation. And he wasn’t sure, but he was starting to suspect he was driving himself into the ground… but that was hardly important, next to what he still needed to do to make this place livable through winter and the years to come. He quite literally had nothing else to do, so he’d be wasting his time if he stopped. And that wasn’t acceptable. Time was too precious…
