best person in the world award!

Two of my photos from tonight’s (December 7, 2016) red carpet at the Make-a-Wish Foundation 4th Annual Wishing Well Gala, honoring Robert Downey Jr. with the Shining Star Award for his many contributions as a wish-granting hero.  Thank you to Make-a-Wish of Greater Los Angeles for the carpet credentials and invitation to cover the gala - and permission to share photos on Tumblr. 

“Over the years, Robert has granted dozens of wishes for children around the world, and has personally brought hope, strength and joy to Wish Kids and their families.  In addition, he has donated funds through his foundation, Random Act Funding,” providing resources to help make other children’s wishes come true,” reads the award citation. “One of today’s most popular actors, Robert is best known by Wish Kids for his role as Iron Man in the Iron Man and Avengers franchises, as well as his title role in the Sherlock Holmes franchise. Superheroes are of special importance to Wish Kids, as they provide escape from difficult medical treatments and embody the power that kids need to fight and stay strong.

“Among the many memorable wishes Robert has granted include: helping nine-year-old Domenic, who has cystic fibrosis, fulfill his wish to be a superhero; surprising seven-year-old Alex, who was born missing most of his right arm, by presenting him with a specially made replica of Iron Man’s famous arm; and welcoming 17-year-old Cameron, an enthusiastic Avengers fan, to spend the day with him during production on the set.”

And…HE WORE AN IRON MAN TIE.

Of course he did.

Congratulations, Robert!!!

fanon kon: would receive the supportive boyfriend of the year award but hes too humble and probably gives it to tim instead with a speech about how tim is the best boyfriend in the world and hes lucky to have him, with zero dirty jokes or quips during the entire thing. (whats a personality?)

canon kon: would be given the supportive boyfriend of the year award as a joke, but puts it in a trophy case. when tim complains about kons awful sense of humor and/or complains about kon telling him to take it easy, kon points to it and says “sorry babe i cant hear you over the sound of me being awesome”

ENTP and INTJ. These two are…crazy. It’s not uncommon for them to hate each other on the first encounter, since they’ll likely end up fighting once they start talking, but over time the “magnetism” can be too strong to resist. They have a similar view of the world, both think that most people are stupid (I dare an NT reading this to disagree), and are very, very nerdy people. They very rarely get bored of the other, since the whole Ne-Ni, Ti-Te thing can be incredibly intriguing and refreshing (do you hear that personal bias coming through??) This is the pair that you see in the grocery store arguing over whether rice or corn would be the best staple food to have during the apocalypse, and the pair that, while watching an award-winning movie, is commenting to each other how ridiculously historically inaccurate the setting is (while annoying the people around them (*cough* SF types) too, of course)). They can be brutally honest with one another and share their thoughts on things openly, knowing their partner will listen and respond with a question or criticism. However, with no F in either one of their types, it may be hard for them to express their feelings or understand the feelings of the other. Because of this, the ENTP x INTJ pairing is best between these two if they’re both mature and have developed their feeling function, and/or have learned how to pick up on their partner’s subtle cues that mean the feelings are still there. All in all, it’s a great pairing, but work has to be done to make sure that their arguing doesn’t go too far, and that their feelings are expressed from time to time.

I’m not here to tell you what to do or boss you around. I’m here to help you. I’m here for guidance. For a shoulder to cry on on if you need it

Why I love Bastille

I would just like to express once again how much I appreciate Bastille as human beings and as a band. Their talent and hard work put into their music alongside their humble personalities just combine together perfectly to make a lovable band that not only myself adores, but the millions of other people around the world and I can not express my love for them enough. They deserve every award they are nominated for, and even if they don’t win it they are still considered to be the best band to me and that’s all that matters.

I’m so happy and proud for them.

When Yoongi was writing his letter, he wanted to win a daesang but he didn’t think it was possible. Now they have two… Album of the year and Artist of the year. These two awards has made Yoongi the happiest person in the world. This is a man who lives and breathes for music, he suffered a mental illness, he fought his way to get where he is now. Countless long nights at the studio make the musical we all love so very much. Yoongi is one of the most precious people in this world.

BTS are one of the best bands in the world. There isn’t anything they wouldn’t do for us. Junkook gives us extra songs that he’s recorded. Hoseok, Jimin and Jungkook give us videos of the dances they’ve made up in their spare time. Seokjin gives us lives streams when he’s the happiest, when he’s eating, seeing Seokjin happy and eating makes all of us ARMYs happy. Taehyun gives us silly little videos that he makes that brighten all of our days. Namjoon is the most deserving leader in the world, without Namjoon we wouldn’t have these amazing boys who we have loved since the day we saw them.

ARMY are proud to have BTS…

I know for a fact that Liam enjoyed his afternoon at the Q awards. But, what a lot of people don’t realize is that he actually hackled every single person that moved that afternoon, not just rubbish.

It was like: ‘and the winner of the best live band in the world is Oasis.’ And he was sat there ‘That’s rubbish, ru- oh that’s us’, you know.

[He] even hackled me on the way up, he was going ‘you’re rubbish you can’t even play the guitar’, you know.
So it’s like, he sort of didn’t discriminate.

I’m so mad about mama and I’m seriously not trying to bring bad vibes on here but I really am right now. Mama is less then 2 weeks away and I heard nothing about Block B going. Block B had their best year this year of their whole career and showed the world that they are good group but that’s not good enough for this award show? What they didn’t agree to do the red carpet again? Told them they want their own stage and mama told them no?

And the last thing I want to hear/read is someone that knows nothing about being a BBC trying to have a opinion on how we should act. I’m up to last straw with that shit. Be one of us in full. Make them your ult group please do. Now wait I’ll say a few weeks? Yeah a few weeks for a scandal to roll through or for someone to get bored and come in and start hating for no reason. BBCs are keeping to themselves but someone always wants to poke us because they know we will try to ignore and keep calm. Now live through that and tell us how you feel. Now wait a bit more and live through another scandal again. I mean Zico’s sheer existence will bring shit talkers even if he hasn’t done a thing and is in the right. Okay now you know what a scandal feels like? Fight for your group’s placement in the industry as your fandom is getting smaller and smaller. Even in Korea. Block B has thanked the bees that have always came back to see them at their fansignings. That they even said that their fandom got tiny too and hope to get some of the fans back. Now you’re seating here like okay the Zico issue is now over, I’ve lost sleep trying to actively support Block B and making up for the dwindling fans but honestly get no where. You’re tired right? You want to relax enjoy some shows with Block B right? Hmmmm you see OT7 Block B hasn’t had one in over 2 years. They only use the V App to try to sell us Block B’s promotions. They don’t come on to say hi and spend time with us they are put there to make sure we are watching the MVs, going to see them at fansignings/music shows, and buying the albums. They gloss it over with the members doing something cute like cooking or some shit. “Well come on Shayla at least you get to see them stop complaining”. Yeah I do get something and I also get to watch them read off a script if it’s either in their hands or on cards and the PDnim and telling them they have to do this or that. The one time Jaehyo actually wanted to spend time with us they canceled it so fast it wasn’t funny.

You do nothing but your group still gets bashed on every few weeks. Having to try twice as hard to get your group anywhere both with Korean and international BBCs. Only getting to see your group now when it time to make money.
So please be one of us and understand us before you have the right to judge us. Be one of us without having another group to run to when times get hard and you get bored.

I’m shocked, not in a good way. People of color have always been here. Women have always been here. And for a genre that supposedly prides itself on, to quote Gene Roddenberry, infinite diversity in infinite combinations, and being more progressive than the rest of the world, though there are some that don’t think we should be, for a genre that prides itself on that to have never given the best-novel award to another black person, that’s just bizarre. It’s also indicative of a general tendency in literature. We tell ourselves we’re more progressive, we’re more futurist, we’re more forward thinking, and that’s just not true. If we don’t make the same effort at antiracist and anti-oppressive thought, we’re not going to be any better about it than anybody else, and I’m glad that this is changing.

Palestinian teacher wins global prize worth $1m

The Duke of Cambridge has paid tribute to the “incredible work” of the teaching profession as a Nobel-style award worth $1m was handed to a teacher from Palestine. Hanan al-Hroub, who works with children who have grown up exposed to violence, was given the second annual Global Teacher prize at a star-studded ceremony in Dubai.

In his video link, Prince William said he had been taught by “some of the best teachers in the world”.

“I know what an incredible teacher can mean to a child,” he said. “A good teacher holds the power to influence, inspire and shape a young person’s life for the better. They represent the key to real change in this world.”

The prince added: “Teachers are also uniquely placed to recognise and support the most vulnerable and troubled children in our society, reaching young people early on in their education and providing them with the extra support they need and giving them the best possible chance in life. This is an incredible responsibility.”

On Instagram she proudly posted a picture with the caption: “Me with the world’s greatest! ♥ ” [+]Roche also requested her new personalized football-boots to be the ones from Cristiano Ronaldo’s special Nike-collection.

‘’ I prefer to win titles with the team ahead of individual awards or scoring more goals than anyone else. I’m more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with? When I retire, I hope I am remembered for being a decent guy. I have fun like a child in the street. When the day comes when I’m not enjoying it, I will leave football.’’

Borderlands movie is in the works

Lionsgate Partners With Take-Two Interactive Software, Gearbox Software and Producers Avi and Ari Arad on Film Adaptation of Blockbuster Video Game Borderlands

Lionsgate, a premier next generation global content leader, is teaming with the publisher and creators of Borderlands, and renowned producers Avi and Ari Arad to adapt Gearbox Software’s critically-acclaimed blockbuster video game Borderlands into a tent-pole feature film, the parties announced today. Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game created and developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K, a wholly owned label of Take-Two Interactive Software.

The award-winning Borderlands franchise has been lauded by critics and over the years has built a passionate global fan base, shipping more than 26 million copies around the world since its launch in 2009, including 8 million copies shipped during Take Two’s fiscal year 2015 alone. Set in the frontier of a sci-fi universe, Borderlands is best known for Gearbox’s blending of irreverent humor and characters, with a unique comic-book art style, and co-operative four-player genre-bending, loot-grabbing gameplay. It’s a franchise that in the last six years has ushered in a new and popular category of first-person shooters.

The Borderlands film creative team will be led by producers Avi and Ari Arad, who are responsible for some of the most successful motion picture and television franchises in history, including Iron Man, Spider Man, The Amazing Spider Man, X-Men, Ghost Rider and Blade.

“We believe that we’ve brought together the right partners, the ideal creative team and the perfect property to launch a new motion picture tent-pole for a global audience,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. “Part of our strategy in entering the game space under Peter Levin has been to source new brands with built-in audiences that will translate into great films and television shows. The Borderlands games don’t pull any punches, and we’ll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise.”

“Our Borderlands franchise continues to grow in popularity, and we’ve assembled a team with the strengths needed to introduce this amazing cross-platform property to a whole new global audience,” said Take-Two Interactive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Strauss Zelnick. “Lionsgate has emerged as a major creative force in the global marketplace with an incredible portfolio of brands; our partners at Gearbox have pioneered and cultivated an iconic property; and Avi and Ari Arad are two of the most successful producers of action franchises. This alliance is ideally positioned to create a bold, provocative, no-holds-barred motion picture phenomenon that will delight Borderlands’ current legions of fans and captivate moviegoers around the world.”

“We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with Jon Feltheimer, Michael Burns, Rob, Patrick and the amazing team at Lionsgate and join forces with Take-Two and Gearbox on this incredible property,” said Avi and Ari Arad. “Borderlands has a unique story-driven narrative energy and rich multidimensional characters that position it to become a singular motion picture event.”

“Creating, developing and continuing to build the Borderlands franchise at Gearbox Software has been an incredible ride where the most powerful fuel to our engine has been the astonishing outpouring of love and devotion from the fans,” said Randy Pitchford, President and Co-Founder of Gearbox Software. “It is the passion of the fans driving the growing success of Borderlands that brought what I believe to be the best team of film producers, marketing and distribution experts in the world together to deliver the exciting story and unique characters of Borderlands to the big screen.”

The deal was orchestrated by a Lionsgate team led by President of Interactive Ventures & Games Peter Levin, Summit Entertainment President of Production Geoff Shaevitz and Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President of Business & Legal Affairs Patricia Laucella.
