best of both words

The Annual Horsblr Drama Recap: 2016 edition

January: “Unbranded”: promoting the mustang? or just a group of stupid thrill seeking college kids knowingly putting their horses lives in danger? “Take your rich bitch money and fat mouth elsewhere”:  The “If you say everyone needs a trainer, you’re elitist” mantra.  The State of America: Judge Qualifications.  Horse Slaughter: livestock animal, best friend, or both?

Our experts weigh in on what your bridle says about your financial status.  LDR vs Rolkur, AGAIN… The Facts: Is there a correlation between liking a certain breed and preferring a certain style of horse management? 

February:  Conspiracy: Theveganmothership and Banallequinesports are the same person.  NEWSFLASH: putting stallions in the same area so they can sort out their hierarchy under the careful eyes of their owners is abusive and disgusting.  “jfc Janet BAIL is what you have when you are in jail and BALE is what hay is in.  Learn to fckn spell”  Halters: Nylon vs. Leather?  Safety vs. Aesthetics?  Helmet Girl strikes again!  Weighted tails, weighted bits, and other training nonsense.     

March:  Real Talk: is it Horseblr or Horsblr? Arthur’s absolutely appalling joke of a browband.  Some interesting A circuit hunters drama that had something to do with burn marks??  Do we or do we not want barrel racers to wear helmets with cowboy hat attachments: safety vs aesthetics part 2.  “My daddy bought me an import and I only see it once a month”.  The bald face debate.

December: Barrel racing Instagram equestrians and futurity shit.  “Kicking Your Horse in the Chest for Refusing to Jump and other Tantrums”.  Personal opinion posts taken way too far.  Pro-anas infiltrate horseblr.  Hoof Crack Treatment Discourse.  Gettin Salty: Dutch Harness Horses.  Biting and Aggression: Best Plan of Action? “Wow I cant believe ur horse is on bute when u haven’t been given it by a vet even tho if i had checked your blog for literally 5 seconds i would have seen i was literally wrong!”

« meilleur » or « mieux » ?

Both of these words mean “better”/”best” so choosing between them can sometimes be difficult.  English speakers tend not to find the distinction between « bon » and « bien » so difficult because we also make the distinction between “good” and “well”.

« meilleur » is an adjective and so comes from « bon » and describes a noun. « mieux », on the other hand, is an adverb (like « bien ») and so describes a verb or another adverb.

C’est un bon musicien. C’est un meilleur musicien que son frère. C’est le meilleur musicien de la famille.
He’s a good musician. He’s a better musician than his brother. He’s the best musician in the family.

Elle chante bien. Elle chante mieux que sa sœur.
She sings well. She sings better than her sister.

Be careful of sentir bon (to smell nice) and se sentir bien (to feel well)

Ça sent bon mais ça sent meilleur !
That smells good but that* smells better!

Je me sens bien. Je me sens mieux qu’hier.
I feel well. I feel better than yesterday,

Here are some other phrases that make use of these words:

garder le meilleur pour la fin — to save the best for last
aller de mieux en mieux —to get better all the time/to keep getting better
à qui mieux mieux — each more than the other
     ils criaient à qui mieux mieux — they were each shouting louder than the last)
j’aime mieux + infinitif — I would rather…
changer en mieux — to change for the better
faire de son mieux — to do one’s best
c’est pour le mieux — it’s for the best

Waiting nearly a half hour after the screaming stopped Dean peaked his head through the door adjoining the rooms. Seeing you curled up in Sam’s side as his head rested on yours he smiled and closed the door.

“Looks like I’ll be her wake up call.”


Softly creeping into the room Dean woke up Sam, bringing his finger to his lips. Sam nodded as he gently slid himself away from you, trying his best not to wake you. Once he was free he tiptoed over to the door adjoining the rooms.

“Hey,” Dean whispered, “was she as good as she sounded?”

Sam smiled, “better.”

He had me there.

You were there for me when I collapsed and kept me talking where I wanted to just run and escape - it is my turn to thank it by giving you the support in the time of need. 

Thank you path-of-sorrows for sticking with me over the night while I felt so restless and down, I appreciate it especially knowing that you also had a heavy day. Support is mutual right? 

I may not the best with words but let this talk for me, since we both are elftrashes, right? 

Thank you for your handrail <3

Another Phantasy

Imagine Phil walking into the living room to find his shrimp dead (rip), then running to tell Dan who couldn’t give one fuck but knows that his weird yet adorable boyfriend is for some reason legitimately upset. So Dan hugs him and listens to his ramblings, and does his best not to laugh as they both say a few words before flushing the dead shrimp down the toilet. Because sometimes, if you see past his absurd and ludicrous adoration for a dumb shrimp, you realise that it is just so unbelievably cute. 

((Thank you all for the very kind words. I do try my best to both write well and to make timely responses to threads. Real life tends to get in the way of the latter but do know that I am not neglecting threads. Feel free to remind me if I’ve missed someone or if you want to chat. Thank you once again!))

Excuse me but can we just take a moment to talk about how...

…relatable the Necrobot is? Because that reaction is so understandable given his later explanation.

Also let’s talk about how…

…freakishly nice this entity of death is?!! I mean, he’s so damn humble and look at how affectionnate he looks when he says “Oh Nightbeat”, then does his best to comfort the mech, both by words and hand clasping. AND HE EVEN SMILES FOR THE GODDAMN SELFIE, I MEAN WHAT?!!!



My heart can’t take this. I’m crying. I’m banging my head over the desk because THIS. MECH!!

Why Poetry Is The Best Medium For Kids Who Want To Change The World

Diggs started slamming at Berkeley High School in California after watching the documentary “Slam Nation” with his friends. We just got really inspired,” he told HuffPost on Saturday night, the day after his departure from “Hamilton.” “So we got some friends together and tried to recreate that. We had a teacher donate a classroom after school and we just started doing it.

BNV was a much smaller festival when Diggs was a kid, but the premise behind the event, which showcases the spoken word performances of students over the course of six days, is still the same: It was an opportunity for us ― for kids who are often ignored and whose words are not valued ― to say whatever we wanted,” Diggs said. “In the best way possible. And have those words honored.

Both [Danez] Smith and Diggs are quick to praise poetry as an effective medium for kids whose voices need to be heard.What writing a poem really does ― and what figuring how to perform effectively really does ― is forces people to listen to you,” Diggs said. “It frames your thoughts in such a way that grabs people’s attentions and forces them to hear the things that you’re actually saying.

These are techniques that you can use forever,” he added. “Learning how to get a point across is pretty useful in any situation.

Many of the BNV performances are available on YouTube, a platform Diggs suggests that interested kids use to find their way into the world of slam poetry. Listen to everything and just start doing it,” he said.

Typically, my advice to young artists is not to wait for someone to allow you to do the thing,” Diggs concluded. “Just do the thing and they’ll catch up.

People who side with health insurance companies in thinking that profits are more important than sick people getting treatment make me fucking ill.  I don’t give a damn if treating sick people loses billions of dollars a year.  It should still be done.  Why?  Because people are more important than money.
