Good literature is a mirror through which we see ourselves more clearly, and it’s clear to see that the people of Twin Peaks have experienced many a twisting turn of fate.

– The Secret History of Twin Peaks, by Mark Frost


I just wrote a whole “my version of events” kind of thing but…it’s really not important anymore. What’s important is that what’s past has led me and Alex to this point. Back together, happy and better off for all the events that have passed, both fortunate and unfortunate. We’ve learnt from everything we’ve been through and clearly come through stronger than before. 

I’m also very happy that this time, we’re sharing it with the world! For a little more info on why we didn’t share it last time and where my head was at a few months ago, here’s a blog I wrote a while back!

Finally, we’re back to the way that we were :‘D

We are clearly not going to make it through Dunkirk promo season.

I’ve mentally prepared myself for Harry to die in the movie. But I am not sure how to prepare myself for his Dunkirk red carpets.
Jen Aniston: I’m Not Pregnant — I’m ‘Fed Up’!
Jennifer Aniston slammed the recent pregnancy rumors about herself and the continual body-shaming that women face in a candid blog post on Tuesday, July 12 — read it here

“If I am some kind of symbol to some people out there, then clearly I am an example of the lens through which we, as a society, view our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues. The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty. Sometimes cultural standards just need a different perspective so we can see them for what they really are — a collective acceptance… a subconscious agreement. We are in charge of our agreement. Little girls everywhere are absorbing our agreement, passive or otherwise. And it begins early. The message that girls are not pretty unless they’re incredibly thin, that they’re not worthy of our attention unless they look like a supermodel or an actress on the cover of a magazine is something we’re all willingly buying into. This conditioning is something girls then carry into womanhood. We use celebrity “news” to perpetuate this dehumanizing view of females, focused solely on one’s physical appearance, which tabloids turn into a sporting event of speculation. Is she pregnant? Is she eating too much? Has she let herself go? Is her marriage on the rocks because the camera detects some physical “imperfection”?

I used to tell myself that tabloids were like comic books, not to be taken seriously, just a soap opera for people to follow when they need a distraction. But I really can’t tell myself that anymore because the reality is the stalking and objectification I’ve experienced first-hand, going on decades now, reflects the warped way we calculate a woman’s worth.”

But it’s so much more than just flirting. It’s all the late night conversations, all the giggles and play fighting and arguing over the most trivial things in the world. It’s the sadness and the comforting and the memories that we’ve created, the secrets, the sparks that fly every time my fingers graze your skin.

It’s something that words do not give credit to; intangible and expressed solely through actions and the ways in which our eyes lock and crinkle as we smile.

It’s also the doubts, the confusion of whether or not we’re just friends and whether or not we ought to pursue more. Our friends say we’re clearly a couple, but we’re still shy despite everything we’ve been through. We don’t want to ruin things, and yet there’s clearly something there that’s too good to be missed.

Sure, it’s complicated. And it’s just so much more than simple flirting.

jonghyun: since it’s september 13th we can say that it’s autumn now. a funny thing in summer is that there are little ones (ie: leaves) that behave tactlessly and turn red. their leaves haven’t even grown big and they’ve turned red and started falling down. when i look at them i feel like…, how do i deseribe it? very strange. nowadays, also, it’s fascinating that there are ones that are still green and ones that turn red. i wonder whether they prefer certain seasons just like people. it leaves me a lot of things to think about as we can see that the season is, clearly, changing through the leaves.

Twinge is my favorite doujinka. She’s the one who brought me to NaruSasu’s world with “Invisible Love, Love Visible” – such a cute dj ^^.

Among all the famous NS doujinkas, I think that Twinge’s NS are discriminated between uke and seme the most obviously. Her Sasuke is really, truly very pretty, haughty, picky, maybe a little shy I guess, cold with all the others, only close to Naruto. In doujinshis of Twinge, because Sasuke is a prideful character, normally he’ll never show his sentiment clearly. However, we can still feel his love for Naruto through the way he acts and protects him (as “Invisible Love, Love Visible” or “Setting Sun, Falling Down”).

About Naruto, he’s so adorable when he’s a kid and … um… so handsomeeee when he’s grown up  >v< *OMG*forgive me*:))*. In Twinge’s dj, Naruto is created to be a very gentle, thoughtful, warm seme, perhaps childish when he’s little yet he always cares for Sasuke deeply, understands and loves him a lot. The way he talks, the way he acts, the way he smiles, they all show his love for the latter. And for some reasons, I think Naruto of Twinge is the one pampering his uke the most :)).

Twinge’s doujinshis are usually cute, suffused with sweetness and light atmosphere.

I bought this Girasol quartz today and it’s absolutely amazing.

“Girasol Quartz (also called girasol opal) is a very ancient mineral found in Madagascar and has powerful energies. This stone can help you feel calm, relaxed, hopeful and optimistic.

Girasol can also amplify your ability to be creative, thoughtful and focused in your life.

Girasol Quartz brings a sense of balance to the emotions that can increase control over impulsive behavior. This ability to be in control of your feelings empowers you to clearly think things through and just say no to hasty choices we sometimes regret later.”

Meanwhile, Queen Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) kissed Tobin again, but she also left him a goodbye note.
As CARYL-ERS FOR LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE, we’d cheer at this breakup, but Carol is clearly going through a serious existential crisis, and leaving the group (again, this time by choice) is not a good thing. Plus, Daryl is feeling his own feelings and he is apparently about to go out to face Dwight and the Saviors himself, as revenge for Denise.

Instead of leaving separately, Daryl and Carol should either
1) leave together and fight their fights as Team Caryl,
2) stay together, and fight their fights as Team Alexandria.


Countdown to 5B - Once Upon a Love Story (part 2)         {part 1}

The attraction between Emma and Killian had been there from the beginning but her fear of trusting others kept it at bay. That is until Killian truly surprises her and saves her father’s life. She is genuinely grateful. And when their flirtations reach a breaking point when both boast that neither could handle kissing the other, she throws caution to the wind, grabs his collar and passionately kisses him. And if both were completely honest after that moment, neither one could handle it. For Emma this was significant because she allowed herself to do something just because she wanted to. What she didn’t count on was how much she felt. And although she still tried to repress these feelings, we could clearly see the truth of her feelings through her breathless reaction and smile as he says “As you wish.” [For Killian, how much he felt was unexpected as well and he clearly was overcome by their amorous moment, touching his lips and letting out an audible breath. This beautiful woman made him feel things he has not felt for over 300 years, and believe that finding love was possible again, and this dashing pirate made her feel that unexpected wave of emotions that she had always so carefully repressed come rushing to the service in a single passionate instant. There is a sentiment from the film P.S. I Love You, that is so apropos for Emma and Killian’s first kiss in Neverland. Kissing each other was the end of life as they knew it. Everything changed and we’ve not looked back ever since.] - beautiful words by the girly nerd.

Paul Walker was a role model for the MTV audience since the very beginning of his too-short career. Our audience grew up with him, from Varsity Blues to the Furious franchise. He was a movie star that they could relate to. Paul’s humanity and kindness clearly showed through every role. We’re honored to be able to spend a moment in this year’s Movie Awards to celebrate him.

We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

how are there still people who act like hermann gottlieb is some sort of technology inept dinosaur stuck in the last century because he uses chalkboards i mean he coded the jaegers??? (nevermind the fact that we clearly see him modeling the breach through the use of technology in the film itself)

tbh if you ask me the chalk is clearly a sensory processing issues thing (it’s a Good Feel 👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀) or just a really dedicated effort at maintaining the number nerd aesthetic and to interpret it as some sort of rigid refusal to engage with modern methods of computing is straight up baffling to me

Phonogram has a reputation as an inaccessible book, a reputation it affects to be proud of on all those expository pages it provides to help people access it. But the first three issues of this miniseries really have been easy-peasy, haven’t they? We’ve followed one clearly defined, if clearly divided, character through a clearly defined situation. The key moments and developments in that situation have been presented to us directly. The stakes have been both high and apparent. The essential cultural allusions have been ones my dad would cotton on to. Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #1-3 were sneaky and meticulously constructed comics that were layered so as to say what they had to say on any level you might approach them, but if you put them in the hands of the sort of person who grumbles that they’re looking for a straightforward-stories-well-told then that person wouldn’t grumble. Gillen’s biggest comics influence is Alan Moore whose most self-begrudged hits are such because such hands have held them. There’s nothing artistically conservative about them, but they’ll fool readers who are.

Then there’s this. Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #4 opens in black and white, in a time and place it informs us is seemingly irrelevant, and with the cast of The Singles Club, the miniseries before this one, who it then follows for the whole issue. What’s going on here? And is it cruel?


Richard Jones over at the Rainbow Hub on Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl 4.

This is all really, really strong. Oddly both C and I got a bit choked up over the whole thing, as it really got it. That said, we were hungover.

I really hope in season 2 they do pay attention to the fact Laura was an ass to Carmilla at first in season 1 and they actually make Laura say sorry for her actions (especially for ep 33 because in ep 32 we can clearly see Carmilla has went through emotional and more than likely physical abuse) I’m not saying this makes her a bad person, I’m just saying I hope its spoke about

The game jam showcase was today, and we got a pretty positive reception for ours. We’ve been encouraged by the board to polish it more; expanding on it beyond the 30 hours we had to make stuff, and it could be a festival/portfolio-worthy piece. :D
