complete revolution

Whatever you do, don’t imagine modern revolutionaries Enjolras and Grantaire.

Don’t imagine them leaving a rally together and taking the subway home in the middle of the night.

Don’t imagine Grantaire falling asleep on Enjolras’s shoulder.

Don’t imagine Enjolras letting him stay that way.

Don’t imagine Enjolras watching Grantaire, and wondering how he had never noticed how beautiful he was before.

Don’t imagine Enjolras falling in love with his cynic.

Don’t imagine Enjolras thinking it isn’t requited and not telling Grantaire.

Don’t imagine the Les Amis going to a more violent rally that they don’t all come out of.

Don’t imagine Grantaire sacrificing himself for Enjolras.

Don’t imagine Enjolras crying.

Don’t imagine the funeral.

Don’t imagine Enjolras going back to Grantaire’s apartment.

Don’t imagine Enjolras finding hundreds of sketches deemed unperfect by Grantaire.

Don’t imagine them all being of Enjolras.

Don’t imagine them all being stunning, but Grantaire thinking that they are nothing compared to the actual man.

Don’t imagine Enjolras realizing that Grantaire loved him back.

Don’t imagine Enjolras throwing himself completely into the revolution in an attempt to forget about Grantaire.

Don’t imagine it not working.

Don’t imagine Enjolras waking up in the middle of the night because he had just seen Grantaire die, again.

Whatever you do, don’t imagine the tragedy of modern day Enjoltaire.

“1/8 Revolution”

I keep coming back to this scene, trying to top my previous timelapses shot here. I wouldn’t say this is my by best to date, but I’m happy with it. The title refers to Earth’s rotation, since this image represents 3 hours of time, that means that the Earth spun 1/8 of a revolution during this timelapse. (Earth completes one revolution every 24 hours. 24 divided by 3 is 1/8)
I made this time stack by combining 305 photos into one image.

🌠🚀✨ STAR ATLAS ANNOUNCEMENT: PROJECT AND SCHEDULE UPDATES🌠🚀✨ 

Greetings, Space Explorers!

First off, our team would like to offer our congratulations on completing another successful revolution around the sun! Happy 2018, Cosmonauts!

As the holiday season comes to a close, we’d like to report that all our contributors and team members have been hard at work on their submissions, and the final zine is starting to take shape. As with any flight, there are bound to be some adjustments to ensure smooth sailing until we reach our destination. As such, we’ve made some minor changes in our schedule to accommodate for some logistical and production concerns.

After reviewing the release dates of other zines, we have decided to move the beginning of our pre-orders to February 28, 2018 12:00:01 AM GMT+0. This is in order to avoid clashing with the pre-order dates of other YOI zines that are running concurrent with Star Atlas. Other scheduled deadlines will remain the same.

Additionally, we will also be uploading a series of Contributor Introductions starting January 18, 2018 to help you get to know the amazing team of contributors behind this project. We’ll be introducing their work, who they are, and what they think of when they look at the skies. Please keep an eye out for them!

Below is our updated schedule.

January 18 - Start of Contributor Introductions
January 26 - Second Check-In (Writers, Artists, and Composer)
February 12 - Submission of Final Pieces (Writers, Artists, and Composer)
February 28 - Pre-orders Open

Thank you again for your support and patience! The Star Atlas team is immensely grateful to have you along with us for this journey! Until the next transmission 💫

S/O tries to dance to their songs

Jin

You weren’t the worst dancer ever, but you also weren’t the best. You concentrated as you practiced, but you just couldn’t get the timing down on the jumps and turns.

You sighed and leaned against the wall, trying to catch your breath. “You okay Jagi? You seem annoyed.” You look over at him and sigh, explaining the situation. He gave you a smile and dragged you back to the floor.”Here, like this.” he said, leading you through the dance slowly.

The two of you began picking up speed and eventually, you were doing the moments by yourself. “There! See! You’re an amazing dancer!”

Suga

 Suga walked in on you one day while you were working out. He recognized an unfamiliar voice and went to investigate, seeing it was a video. After watching for a while, he realized it was a tutorial for one of their dances. 

“Wow y/n. You’re pretty good. I don’t even remember part of this dance.” he said as he came into the room fully. He tried giving you a hug, but you swatted him away since you were sweaty.

“Jimin bet me 30,000 won (about 25$) that I couldn’t master it. I gotta beat him.”

J-Hope

“J-hope, would you help me get into dancing? Nothing really hard, but basic stuff? My physical therapist said it might help my knees.” you ask one day after returning to an appointment.

J-hope smiled and nodded. I have the day off tomorrow. We can start then.

The next day came and he smiled as you walked into the studio. “We’re gonna start with some of the groups easier dances. They’re really fun and we don’t have to do all of it.” 

You nod and follow his lead, finding that you enjoyed it more than you thought you would.”This is fun! Maybe I should come to dance practice with you.”

Rap Monster

You sighed as you walked into the dance studio. Rap Monster hadn’t been home in a while, and with the new dances, you figured he’d probably be here. You were right. “Babe, come on home. It’s getting late.”

“I have to practice. why don’t you practice with me some and then we can go.” He beckoned you over to him and showed you the moves. After an hour of practice, you still sucked. “Man. I’ve never meet anyone worse at dancing than me Jagi.” he teased, bopping your nose.

“I’ll fight you.”

Jimin

You and Jimin had spent the entire summer finishing each Dance, Dance Revolution to completion with high scores in them all. “You should come to practice with me tomorrow. Lets see how you do in a real life dance.” he suggested, high-fiving you as you finished the last of the games.

You thought for a moment and nodded, figuring it would be fun.

By the end of the next day, you had amazed all the boys. “Damn, I didn’t know you could move like that Jagi!” Jimin said as you finished the dance. You smiled proudly and went up to him. He bent down slightly and kissed your head as the others gave you a small round of applauds.

V

V knew you could dance, but when he watched your solo performance of Blood, Sweat, and tears, he cheered the loudest out of everyone. He cheered even louder when you got first place for it.

“Way to go y/n!I knew you were amazing! This calls for a celebration!” he called as he dragged you down the street. You ended up at your favorite restaurant and sat down.

“I love you y/n. I love how much passion you have and how much effort you put into everything.I just really, really, love you.”

Jungkook

Jungkook yawned as he walked into the kitchen after waking up. It seemed no one was up yet until he heard music coming from the kitchen. when he got to the door, he smiled sleepily at you. 

You were still decked out in your pj’s, but was dancing around the kitchen to their newest album as you cooked. The music was currently on his solo and he laughed as you mouthed all the words. 

He went up behind you and hugged you around your waist, sleepily singing the song into your ears. He watched as you continued cooking and bent down, giving you a kiss on the cheek. “I love you.”

Weekenders

It’s still light out when the doorbell rings. The sun sits low in the sky, warm orange light flows in from the large windows. Brought to her feet by the incessant ringing, Katniss opens the door to find Peeta standing in the hallway. His bright smile is overshadowed only by the greasy bag of cheese buns in his hands.

“You’re spoiling me,” Katniss says, stepping aside to invite him in.

“Get your own cheese buns,” he scoffs. “These are mine.”

She stares pointedly at him until he finally gives up the bag. With a laugh, Peeta kicks his shoes off and makes himself comfortable on the sofa. Katniss plops down next to him, biting into a steaming pastry.

“What’s on the agenda tonight?” she asks as he scrolls through the channels.

It’s become their ritual. Every weekend Peeta’s brothers invite everyone they know and trash the place with their round-the-clock party. Just the thought of it makes Katniss exhausted. So before the party hits full swing, Peeta makes his escape and spend the weekend with Katniss in her more modest studio. The whole thing started when she found him sleeping on a patio chair in the courtyard one Sunday morning and invited him in for breakfast. The following week he was at her door with a bag of cheese buns. Friends ever since.

“You need DVR,” Peeta says, landing on a cooking channel. “You’re living in the dark ages.”

“Nope,” Katniss says flatly. “Then you’ll never leave.”

The age of human spaceflight began 56 years ago when Yuri Gagarin launched into space aboard Vostok 1. The 27-year-old Gagarin’s flight lasted 108 minutes during which he completed one revolution of the Earth. Upon his return to Earth, Gagarin toured the world as a beloved Hero of the Soviet Union and praised the world over for his historic accomplishment.

Roughly every six weeks or so the ground track of the International Space Station matches up with that of Vostok 1′s at the same time of day that the historic mission flew. This allows astronauts on board the ISS to see the world almost exactly as Gagarin saw it. 

In 2011, ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli filmed the Earth during one of these orbits as part of a film called First Orbit, created by filmmaker Christopher Riley. Audio of Gagarin’s flight and his conversations with ground control are included in real time to simulate the cosmonaut’s historic journey.

Ok. This book is a gift upon the earth. To all the frev junkies out there, read this. Mark Steel provides a hilariously accurate picture of revolution, complete with satire to make Voltaire proud and tangents that could impress my never-ever-on-topic chemistry teacher. He paints a delightful, understandable and above all entertaining image of the French Revolution that has had me cracking up to an empty room.

Lmao there are people unironically being all “new years is insignificant and meaningless lol” on my dash like….get a fucking life oh my god. No fun allowed

some leftists get so fucking self-righteous with their ideological purity that they literally cannot acknowledge progress when it happens. like if it’s not a complete revolution and the system isn’t completely dismantled from the word go then it’s not progress worth celebrating i guess. being uplifted by smaller victories is akin to being a liberal i guess.

like the difference here is that liberals see these small victories as the end goal, and don’t want to see change beyond that. by all means, please criticise those people! but i’m tired of seeing people being admonished for celebrating small victories (esp ones that directly impact them in positive ways) that remind us that the world is capable of becoming better, even if slowly, and that it’s worth it to keep fighting for what we believe in.

imo if your ideological purity is preventing you from not only acknowledging any amount of progress, but actually shitting on other people for doing so, then you’re not here to make the world a better place, you’re here to flaunt your theory and intellectual prowess and think yourself superior

LEGION Recap: 1x01

Last spring when I was getting mildly sloshed off cheap French rosés and falling in love with the X-Men, I did not know it was because my compass heart had swung unerringly to the superhero franchise that, in its infinite batshit whimsy, would see fit to produce an eight-episode kaleidoscopic mutant concept piece less than one year later, as if the surrealist inventive fuckery inherent in the X-Men universe had just been waiting for me, DTF.

And then Legion had to wait for me a bit more, as historically I’ve only ever managed to watch one TV show at a time. Why? BECAUSE I DO NOTHING BY HALVES, SON. And presently I am still lost in space with my beloved golden-hearts on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

But then I saw a gifset of what looked like Jemaine Clement in a pale suit on some sort of Mylar-draped soundstage, and that was fucking it. I could feel a give in my ribs as I was pulled toward my true north, to Legion, to the show seemingly made out of scraps and spangles fished out of my own head.

So let’s do it. Let’s do two shows at once. Let’s see what my capacity for sustained enthusiasm actually is. Let’s open up all the valves, let’s set fire to tears, LET’S GO.

Legion - Season 1, ‘Chapter 1’

Wooouuuld you like this show to begin with a deeply stylized growing-up montage set to “Happy Jack” by The Who, hyper-slo-mo snapshots all centered in frame, quaint and retro until our boy hits age of onset and begins screaming it into a distorted symmetrical Wes Anderson nightmare? Hohoho, would I.

I WOULD.

Troubled kid grows into troubled man, until his big haunted eyes see no more hope, and he tries to hang himself with an electrical cord, which sparks like synapses (!!! guys) into a sparkling candle on a cupcake — his birthday. Thirty-odd complete revolutions around the sun for David, the last five spent inside this mental institution, which outfits its patients in burnt orange track jackets with yellow stripes, because THE SIXTIES, groovy.

Dan Stevens does a pretty passable American accent, it turns out. His most amazing transformation is still when he left his second chin in Downton Abbey and suddenly looked like his own hot evil twin, but this is good too.

anonymous asked:

who do you think had/has the best triple twist dismount on beam ?

Though she didn’t have the best form compared to the other girls I’ll mention, I think Oleysa Dudnik has to be mentioned because sticking a ro+bhs+triple twist at the end of a routine with 2 acro series that are still incredibly difficult today almost 30 years ago is super impressive (x).

Mao Yi does a beautiful triple twist (x).

Li Qi performed probably the best triple twist I’ve ever seen earlier this year (x).

She’s not as clean as the Chinese girls, but Sandra Izbasa gets awesome rotation - she completes 3 revolutions so easily (x).

Top 20 Female Characters (according to my followers)

[6/20] Rue, The Hunger Games
“I did know Rue. She wasn’t just my ally, she was my friend. I see her in the flowers grounded in the meadow by my house, I hear her in the mockingjay song, I see her in my sister Prim. She was too young, too gentle, and I couldn’t save her. I’m sorry.”

the answer to the question of why the world’s first self-declared anti-imperialist state was acting like an imperial power trying to “civilize” indigenous peoples is the same as the answer to why the world’s first self-declared anticapitalist state was acting like a capitalist power trying to dispossess the peasantry to urbanize and proletarianize them—they had taken control of a “backwards” country, and in their minds, before they could progress towards their goals (indigenous self-determination and a socialist economy, respectively), they had to complete the “previous steps” (indigenous nationalization and the proletarianization of the peasantry, respectively) that russia, as a “backwards” semifeudal country, had failed to complete before the revolution

Les Misérables is made of exactly 365 chapters. You can therefore read one chapter a day - most of them are quite short - and complete Hugo’s vast novel of love and revolution in the time that it takes planet earth to complete its revolution around the sun.
