It was just another quiet and rainy day for London. Shawn had just finished two concerts in Europe, and today was his day off. Of course on a cold and rainy day like this there wasn’t much to do outside. So, he stayed inside the tour bus, with a guitar in hand, trying to figure out some new melodies for his next album.

Thankfully he wasn’t alone. Geoff was with him trying to help him figure out the lyrics, while his girlfriend was at the table finishing up her final paper for the semester. As for his best friend Brian, he was completely bored out of his mind that no amount of filming crazy snapchat videos could suffice the boredom. That was until he suggested a simple yet deadly game to you three. A game that could break all friendships and relationship. A game that goes by the name UNO.

anonymous asked:

Do you know why someone might feel strongly connected to fairies? When I was a child I had an obsession with fairies out of nowhere, they're not even commonly talked about where I live. My friend and I even came up with a complete fairy realm and we used to pretend to be fairies. I'm American but most of my ancestry is British (so maybe it's some kind of genetic memory?). I don't know if this means anything and just thought I'd ask.

It could be for a number of possibilities: 

  • You have fae bloodline which could result you in feeling a strong connection to the faeries. 
  • One of your guides may be a spirit connected to nature or the faerie realm.
  • Your previous life had elements of faeries in it, influencing your connection to faeries in this life.
  • If you grew up on folk tales about faeries or read books about them it may have sparked an interest
  • The faeries are trying to get your attention by influencing your attraction to them.

I live in Britain so I grew up surrounded by faerie lore, and much like you, I also loved the faeries and made my own realms and such too haha :) 

I think you should get a faerie or elemental reading to open up a communication with the faeries (using oracle cards since it is the simplest way) either by someone who can offer them (there are a lot of people who offer readings over Etsy if you cannot find someone in your area who can do them) or you can also do a reading yourself using a faerie deck (remember to always protect yourself before using cards just in case):

  1. Brian Froud’s Faerie Oracle Deck is lovely
  2. The Faerie Guidance Oracle Deck
  3. Faerie Messages Deck

Here are some good books that you can read to learn more about the faeries:

  1. Spirits, Fairies, Leprechauns, and Goblins: An Encyclopedia 
  2. A Complete Guide to Faeries & Magical Beings: Explore the Mystical Realm of the Little People
  3. Faeries 101

You can also do a faerie offering if you would like to welcome the fae into your life (preferably in a garden if you have one) which can contain anything from sparkling objects or pretty jewellery to sugary sweets and baked goods. 

However, faeries can be unpredictable. A lot of them have a specific expectation of etiquette and good manners, to insult a faerie can be a dire consequence. 

*I suggest to do a lot of research before you open up any communications with faeries though. Tumblr also has a lot of good sources or blogs dedicated to faerie lore.

Please help

Hey guys. So I’m right at the bottom of my overdraft, I can no longer run my Etsy shop, I can’t afford to pay my rent, bills and buy food until I get paid in January… literally everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong. I’m offering readings for very small amounts of money, so if any of you could purchase one from me, I would be eternally grateful. Even a couple of dollars will help me go buy some cat food or some groceries. If anyone is feeling super generous, you can donate money using the donate button on my blog - this also where I take payments for readings.

So, here’s what I can offer:

  • Hand-drawn sigil - $2
  • Pendulum yes/no reading - $1
  • Three rune reading - $2
  • One card reading - $2
  • Three card reading - $4
  • 2017 year ahead card reading - $6
  • Aura reading (for this you must be able to send me a clear photo of your hand) - $6

All card readings will be done with Brian Froud’s faery oracle deck. Please shoot me a message if you’d like to purchase any of these things, thanks x

Feel free to send in more prompts whenever you need more terrornuckel goodness <3


Brock was beyond nervous at this point. Somehow he’d completely bypassed the nervous spectrum and entered an empty void of emotion that merely gave him a slight tingling feeling that spread from the tips of his fingers to his chest. Brock was so nervous that he wasn’t even nervous anymore.

Many of Brock’s friends assured him that it wasn’t really a big deal, that there was nothing to be worried about. But it was a big deal. Brock was going to be staying in Brian’s house for the first time ever! All the confessions over skype and their newly formed relationship were whizzing around in Brock’s head, replaying memories over and over and over. And that certainly wasn’t helping the nervousness go down. Brian was one of his best friends, not to mention his first boyfriend. How was this not a big deal?!

Okay… Maybe in retrospect it wasn’t that big a deal, but it was to Brock!

Brock paced around his hotel room. The contents of his suitcase were scattered across the bed as Brock tried to arrange some sort of outfit. What should he wear? Should he keep it casual or dress up? They only planned on going to Brian’s house, but he didn’t want to be underdressed. Maybe Brian planned something as a surprise, or maybe Brock misunderstood their previous conversations. 

Brock stared at the clothing unhappily. Was he thinking into this too much? No, no of course not. He has every right to think ahead. It was technically his first date with Brian, after all. And he really wanted things to go smoothly. After twenty unhappy minutes and several failed clothing combinations, Brock decided on a simple white button-up and blue jeans. What could possibly go wrong with that? 

However, in Brock’s blind panic to find the right outfit, he didn’t realize that Brian would be at his hotel to pick him up literally any second.

Brock nearly jumped out of his own skin when a loud knock sounded throughout the small hotel room. Brock exhaled, trying to calm his frazzled nerves.

Okay Brock, don’t say anything awkward…’ Brock muttered a few words of encouragement to himself, and opened the door.

“Hi.”

OHMYGODWHYDIDYOUSAYTHAT

Brian raised a brow and whistled, a small smile working it’s way onto his face.

“Wow, someone dressed up. Who’re you going out with?”

Brock smiled awkwardly. “You, unfortunately.” Brian laughed.

“Hey! You’re the one who suggested a sleepover.”

“That was a joke!”

“A terrible joke.”

“Better than yours.” Brock grinned, and took a moment to take in Brian’s appearance. Brock felt his heart sink a little. Brian looked amazing, as usual. However, Brock figured he kinda overdressed, as Brian was decked out in pajamas. Brian raised a brow.

“Are you gonna be comfortable in that? I mean you look great, but all we’re gonna be doing is sitting on my couch all night..”

“Right,” Brock muttered, now flustered. “I’m just gonna, go change.” Brock spun on his heel and walked back into his room, throwing on a t-shirt and pajama bottoms faster than humanly possible. Brock stepped back outside awkwardly, face pink as the door locked behind him. Brian just smiled.

“Much better.”

The two walked in silence down to the lobby and out into the cool Irish evening. Brock stared off at the sun beginning to dip down below the horizon, unaware of the Irishman staring at him.

“You’re adorable Moo Moo.”

“I wish I could say the same to you.” Brock said without thinking. Brian’s mouth dropped open and he swatted at Brock’s arm.

“Rude!”

Brock laughed loudly and tried to dodge Brian’s flailing arms. “I was kidding!!”

Brian huffed and walked up to a cab parked on the curb, opening the door for Brock. “Oh shut up and get in the cab.”

Brock just smiled and got in, watching Brian walk over and get in the other side. Brian gave the cabbie his address and silence overcame the two. Although it wasn’t an uncomfortable, suffocating silence. It was a calm, peaceful silence, and Brock was quite fine with it.

The cab parked outside Brian’s apartment and Brian jumped out of the car, rushing to the over side to get Brock’s door for him. Brock chuckled softly at the gesture.

“Such a gentleman.” Brock grinned at Brian, who simply smiled.

“But of course. What kind of man would I be if I couldn’t get the door for my lovely boyfriend?”

Brock blushed horribly at the term ‘boyfriend’ and nudged Brian.

“Oh shut up..” He muttered. Brian just laughed and nudged Brock back, leading the man into the building and to his apartment. Brian’s apartment was incredibly small, yet very cozy.

“So, where’s the McDonald’s you steal your internet from?” Brock asked, smiling.

“Oh ha ha ha. It’s down the street.” Brian answered, rolling his eyes and chuckling. Brock laughed.

Brock decided in that moment that this was exactly what he wanted his relationship with Brian to be like. He wanted to be able to joke and laugh with Brian the same way they did online. This is what their relationship had always been like, and he didn’t want that to change whatsoever.
Brock found himself smiling at his little revelation.

“What'cha thinkin about over there Brocky?”

“Oh, nothing. What movie are we watching?”

“I dunno. Netflix selection is garbage.” Brian replied, flipping through various movies and shows, looking for something decent.

Brock chuckled. “Is this what Netflix and chill is like?”

Brian sighed at his lame boyfriend. “Yes, Brock. This is what netflix and chill is like.”

Brock laughed as Brian started a random horror movie he found. Normally. Brock hated anything that had to do with horror, but the movie could only be described as complete and utter garbage, so he wasn’t too bothered.

In fact, the movie was so horrible it was laughable. The two joked about the movie endlessly. Brock tried hard not to laugh at one of the worst ‘suspense’ scenes he’s ever seen when Brian let out the most fake yawn he’s ever heard. He looked over at him to see Brian stretching his arm over Brock’s shoulders. Brock shook his head and rolled his eyes, a big grin on his face.

“You’re so lame.”

“Oh hush, you love it.”

A soft smile settled on Brock’s face as he leaned onto the younger man, muttering quietly. “Yeah, I really do.”

New Record - Fall 2013 via Triple Crown Records

Since November 1st, I’ve been cooped up in a cold Chicago rehearsal space with Nick Wakim creating, crafting and redrafting a new set of Into It. Over It. songs. The two of us put in place a new and ever-growing skill set to give this record it’s own feel. Excited about not making the same record twice, I felt this new IIOI project needed a different approach when it came to recording and release.

Enter Triple Crown Records, Brian Deck and Soma Studios in Chicago, IL. 

Triple Crown has been super supportive of everything I’ve been a part of for a few years now. Through a long series of conversations, it was obvious this the most supportive and likeminded home for this new set of songs. 

Brian Deck has recorded some phenomenal records from bands like Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Owen, Rex and many more (as well as playing in bands like Red Red Meat and Ugly Cassanova). His background and style were what I felt would be a great fit for the ideas behind this record. Our separate but similar backgrounds really find a perfect balance. 

I can’t wait to tell you guys more about the songs and the process. There is still so much to do. Thanks for everything you guys! I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to create.

xx,

Evan Thomas Weiss

I know I’m hopelessly behind  the times, and I’m sure versions of this have been circulating since we found out BRIAN BLESSED decked Peter (not on purpose) for real, but what the heck.  I’ve had this capped since I first did Tom Jones for the filmography way back when and while I don’t know for certain it is the actual take when it happened, the scenes does cut off awfully abruptly…

Now, which slightly semi-relevant Malcolm gif from 303 should I use to accompany it?
