Komori’s Speech

We emptied our purses buying this house, but it looks small with this many people in it.

And with different thoughts and concerns on their minds, all of these guys go charging into one another in pursuit of a single ball. Of course, half-assing won’t unify them. That’s why we need so much preparation. Not just in mastering techniques, but also learning to comprehend each other. To understand each other.

They say Rugby games are decided before the game even starts. Upsets are rare in Rugby. The well-prepared team wins, and the unprepared team loses.

Accents and Anachronisms: What did people sound like in 18th century America?

If you’ve ever wondered about the language and accents used by the main characters of TURN, you’re definitely not alone. (It’s one of the topics we get the most questions about from TURN viewers!)

So what DID people sound like in Early America? Our latest blog post takes a closer look at 18th century accents, anachronisms, and speech patterns, complete with plenty of links for further reading. We’ve even got some pronunciation guides for you to download if you want to practice sounding like a turn-of-the-century New Englander! (No, really, you should try it! Hilarity is BOUND to ensue.)

From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - St. Olga’s. I think the beginning of this cue was edited out in the final mix, but it kicks in right after Marco’s big speech. Lots of awesome princesses doing awesome things! It’s just like Tom Cruise in Rogue Nation, if Tom Cruise had a tail and wore a dress.

I’m not asking you to forget your dead. I’ll never forget mine. I lost 50 brothers the night that Mance attacked the Wall. But I’m asking you to think about your children now. They’ll never have children of their own if we don’t band together. The Long Night is coming and the dead come with it. No clan can stop them. The free folk can’t stop them. The Night’s Watch can’t stop them. And all the southern kings can’t stop them. Only together, all of us. And even then it may not be enough, but at least we’ll give the fuckers a fight.

Happy Birthday bjornstark!

“In this brief time here, what I want to use it to do is to say this: When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself because I felt weird and I felt different and I felt like I did not belong. And now, I’m standing here and I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she’s weird or she’s different or she doesn’t fit in anywhere: Yes, you do. I promise you do. You do. Stay weird, stay different. And then, when it’s your turn and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message to the next person who comes along.”
