I know that the majority of people hate it… but Sonic Boom is one of my favorite shows of all time.
Not only is it wonderfully clever while still managing to be simplistic, the characters are hilarious, and it is wonderful at cheering me up whenever I’m down. Whenever I start feeling just a little too angsty for my liking, I go to Sonic Boom for support.
Like this gives me actual joy.
Life suddenly seems a little brighter knowing that Sonic Boom is around, a glimmering gem in the middle of all the hate and negativity. The show doesn’t let other people get it down. It keeps going strong.
Love doesn’t need to last a lifetime for it to be real. You can’t judge the quality of a love by the length of time it lasts. Everything dies, love included. Sometimes it does with a person, sometimes it does on its own. The greatest love story ever told doesn’t have to be about two people who spent their whole lives together. It might be about a love that lasted two weeks or two months or two years, but burned brighter and hotter and more brilliantly than any other love before or after.
So apparently Mike Pence tried to go to a Hamilton show tonight.
There are reports that they had to stop songs at some points because of all the booing and yelling from the audience. (“when your people say they hate you ” and “immigrants - we get the job done” seem to have been big moments.) Talk about walking into the lion’s den.
I have to wonder what made Pence want to see this show. Like, how much did he know about it beforehand? Just that it was popular and about a Founding Father? How much did he know about the casting and why it was done that way, the message it’s meant to send? How much did he know about the style of music? Did he have *any idea* what he was getting into?
Feb. 9, 2017 – A meme is born after Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway promotes Ivanka’s products on Fox News and concludes by saying, “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”
In all seriousness, Conway is in clear violation of Federal Ethics rules, but it’s doubtful the Republican congress will take any action as both she and her boss continuously violate ethics rules (tax returns, conflicts of interest, etc.).
In all honesty, most Americans could give a rat’s ass about Ivanka’s clothes line – this just seems to be another game played by the administration to distract from real issues like Russia, education, and other foreign and domestic policy concerns.
After today’s episode, I’ve been noticing a lot of people saying “Starco is dead.” Or “Jarko is going to be endgame.” Trust me, Starco is far from being dead. We still have a whole other season to go. (Maybe even a 4th) If you haven’t noticed, Daron likes fooling us. Starco is still going strong. It may seem dead, but it’s not. Just wait until Marco finds out about Star’s crush on him. Besides, us Starco shippers aren’t going down without a fight. :)
Theodore winces and reluctantly waves hello
to his butler. “Morning,” he grunts. “Stanley, will you please clear my schedule for today? I’m afraid I’m not feeling very well, and I would really like some peace and quiet-”
“Run, run as fast as you can!” the shrill, exuberant screams of Theodore’s niece Hazel reverberate down the hallway, sending a surge of pain through the governor’s temples.
“You can’t catch me!” Lila Grace hollers in reply. “I’m the one and only BATMAN!”
“Girls! Girls!” Theodore feebly attempts to silence the rambunctious children, but they don’t even seem to notice him. “Girls, PLEASE!” he booms. “I have a horrible headache, and I really just need some-”
“Daddy!” Lila Grace squeals with delight as she runs over and wraps her bony arms around his waist. “Daddy, do you still love me?” she asks him in a muffled whisper.
“Why wouldn’t I still love you?” he frowns.
“Because Mrs. Kirby said that you wouldn’t love me anymore if I failed the reading test at school.”
Theodore sighs. He had hired Mrs. Kirby as Lila Grace’s nanny a couple of months ago, but he found the older woman to be rigid, harsh, and unfriendly. “Well, Mrs. Kirby had no business telling you that, pumpkin. In fact, I think she and I need to have another little chat.”
“Right now?!” Lila Grace smiles up at him hopefully.
hey! i translated a small part of one of the stories in the most recent TG novel “quest”! it’s the part with touka and nishiki in the story called “tension.”
it didn’t seem to me that this had been done already, though i didn’t do a lot of searching. additionally, i’m pretty uncertain about a lot of parts in my translation (esp. dialogue), and, i welcome any corrections or tips. for the most part, i just did this for my own japanese practice/enjoyment and also bc i adore touka, and am just sharing in case anyone is interested :)

Yuri’s always been the one to doubt if Victor will stay with him after the Prix and worry about how Victor feels about him, but it seems Victor’s been worrying about that too:
It’s like he’s doesn’t know what to do if he’s “just a coach” to Yuri. And he’s referring to him and Yuri as coach and student, like he’s afraid to cross the line in case Yuri doesn’t feel the same way he does, and thinking about what’s going to happen after the Prix, like he’s afraid it’s going to be “just a fling” as the other skaters have said.
But then it’s YURI who throws it out there and clears all his doubts, asks for them to be together
And Victor’s just standing there still and speechless
that Yuri feels the same way, that it’s not just a fling, no it’s EVERYTHING
and he’s so relieved and so happy that Yuri loves him SO MUCH
