crazy seal

Sunday Morning Sealed

Amazing

Sunday Morning coffee simmering
new sun rising 
savoring soulful sounds of Seal
absolutely nothing needs to be done
off into the distance peacefully gazing
a good day to breathe, to love, to smile
maybe even to heal
and it seems to be the perfect time to remind you
*I want you to always feel you’re amazing 

Crazy

Forgiving the past, fully alive in this moment
letting the future fret over all possible problems
it’s but an unwritten dream, a dark vision hazy
sharing poems about angels, faeries, butterflies,
children, and other creatures born with wings
while whistfully remembering
*In a sky full of people, only some want to fly
isn’t that crazy

On this day in music history: June 11, 1991 - “Seal” (aka “Seal I”), the debut album by Seal is released. Produced by Trevor Horn and Adamski, it is recorded at Sarm West Studios, Beethoven Street Studios, CTS Studios in London, The Manor Studios in Shipton-on-Cherwell, Oxford, UK, Cherokee Studios, Lion Share Studios in Hollywood, CA, The Complex in Los Angeles, CA, and Can-Am Recorders in Tarzana, CA from November 1990 - April 1991. Born Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel, the British born Afro-Brazilian musician makes his initial breakthrough in 1990, co-writing and singing on acid house producer Adamski’s UK chart topper “Killer”. From there, he signs with producer Trevor Horn’s ZTT Records and begin work on his solo debut album. Recorded in a relatively brief six months, Horn’s perfectionist tendencies come into play, as the deadline to release the album comes up. Two versions of Seal’s debut are released, with each featuring alternate versions or mixes of three songs (“Wild”, “Violet”, and “Crazy”). Once released, it is a critical and commercial success, establishing the musician on a worldwide basis, entering the UK album chart at number one. It spins off five singles in the UK (three in the US) including “Crazy” (#2 UK, #7 US Pop) and “Future Love Paradise” (#12 UK). The album is remastered and reissued in 2005 as a deluxe edition CD + DVD set. The CD contains the original nine song album. The DVD/DVD-A disc features the entire album remixed into 5.1 surround sound, including three music videos and five 12" remixes previously issued. “Seal” spends four weeks at number one on the UK album chart, peaking at number twenty seven on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

OK so what I've been wondering is what does Ace think about the Jinchuriki connection to the bijuu. I mean if I was Ace I'd get that thier connected but I wouldn't get why the bijuu stick around their partners. I mean they where forced into this why are they hanging around their shackles. From a outside pov it doesn't make much sense. Does he like assume the connection gives the bijuu increased sentience and good feelings towards their partners? That's why they go crazy when the seal breaks.

Ace doesn’t have the full picture. The evidence in front of him is that the Tailed Beasts are not especially malicious, are really big and really powerful, and they all seem to be protective of their partners. He knows:

  • Matatabi dotes on people whether they want her to or not.
  • Isobu decided to join in on the hunt for Teach because Kei got hurt by him.
  • Saiken started panicking when Utakata was badly burned, complete with wailing and carrying on.
  • Shukaku is hilarious and acts both arrogant and helpful by turns.

But Ace doesn’t know that, for example, Tailed Beasts can’t normally act on the physical world once sealed into a human. Or that Isobu was trapped in a jar for months. Or that Shukaku was in a teapot for a few years. Or any of the events that led to both Tailed Beast and human partner to bond as friends and allies because they mostly didn’t happen within his line of sight.

Incidentally, out of the current group, there are only two jinchuriki who were not already friends with their respective partners (and vice versa) by the time they got dropped into One Piece. Yugito is the one we’ve met in Ocean Stars Falling thus far.

Chapter 3

O Black Raven, do not circle

In the sky above my head,

You’ll not have me as your quarry

O Black Raven, I’m not yours

Danny Williams was no coward.  In fact, he considered himself a rather brave person – rational, unlike some crazy SEALs he knew, but brave.  Yet, as he followed Joe past the sharp iron gate spires straight into Noshimuri’s lair, as he watched the older man walk calm and unflinching through a thicket of weapons aimed with unmistakable hostility at his head, Danny had to admit his grudging respect for the man.

Unsurprisingly, they were searched - brusquely, roughly - their guns and cell phones taken away from them and dropped carelessly onto a nearby table.

Flanked by two of his personal bodyguards, Adam Noshimuri watched them silently, waiting for his men to finish.  Finally, satisfied that they were both disarmed and rendered virtually harmless, the head of the Yakuza stepped forward, his eyes glittering with undisguised rage.

“I didn’t expect you to bring a friend, Commander White,” he said venomously, nodding at Danny.  "Then again, you do seem to be in the habit of having other people pay for your mistakes.  I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.“

You’re my Prince Charming- Dean Ambrose

Backstage there was always noise. Whether it came from workers putting the set together, or from wrestlers who were getting pumped for a match, music blasting through the speakers on their phones. You weren’t one for huge amounts of noise, so when it was time to pack up and leave, you were always one of the first ones to make it to the somewhat quiet parking garage and find relief in the form of the rental car you were in. Thankfully, the next 3 shows were all in the same area so instead of driving hours to your next destination, you had a bed waiting for you at a nearby hotel. The drive there was short, so you raced up to your room, showered before deciding to have an early night. You know you should have shared a room with Dean, as he was your boyfriend, but lately you had been at each other’s throats. You wanted more, and although you knew going into this relationship that he had a rough exterior and wasn’t the hearts and flowers kind of guy, you wanted it all. The room was quiet, and dark, meaning you were alone with your thoughts for the first time today. Your thoughts were flooded of him, wondering what he was doing, how his match went, was his shoulder slightly bruised the way it always did after a long stretch of back to back matches. You wondered if he was icing like the doctors told him. Your thoughts were interrupted when a soft knock came from your hotel room. It was a faint knock so you lay still, hoping whoever it was would just leave so you could cloud your thoughts with Dean again. However you weren’t lucky as you tossed the sheets off of your body, deciding to put on one of Dean’s jackets you had stolen to make yourself presentable. As you looked through the peep hole you saw him there. His hair scruffy and damp from the night’s activities, a small toiletry bag in one hand, a bag of ice in the second. You smiled to yourself as you opened the door to greet him. He took one look at you and smiled.

“Damn you, I was looking for that jacket all day today. Thought I had left it in some random city.”

“Well hello to you too, did you want to come in?”

At this Dean nodded, letting you step aside before he walked in, and watching you lock the door. He took a seat on the bed where you were once trying to sleep, setting down the toiletry bag but looking down at the bag of ice in his hand. Without saying a word you took the bag from him, sitting so he was seated in between your legs. You tugged at his shirt, him knowing the drill as he raised it over his head, throwing it somewhere across the room. You rubbed the sore shoulder, seeing a small shadow of a bruise starting to form before getting some ice in a nearby towel and placing it directly on the bruise. Dean hissed a bit, trying to get used to the cooling sensation but finally relaxes as you start to slowly move the ice in circles. When the injury first occurred, the doctor had showed his technique to Dean, who upon your first night as being his at home nurse, you were taught. A slight moan left Dean’s lips, knowing you were hitting a good spot. You rested your face against the back of his neck, leaving a small kiss where your lips met his skin.

“I’m sorry for being a jerk”

You smiled against his skin, giving another kiss as your sign of forgiveness. He took the ice out of your hand and tugged on you so you were now standing in front of him.

“Listen to me for a sec yeah? I know you had this fantasy of me being prince charming but I am nothing like him. I’m crazy, erratic, honestly, I still question why you are with me. I never thought I had a romantic bone in my body but being with you I want to try. You do so much for me, I mean, look at this, no words and you knew the one thing that I needed. I don’t like the old me, the one who would sleep with random girls, drink, do bad things that I never want you to have to worry about. You make me a better person. You make me want to try and get in touch with my emotions, to yell at the top of my lungs that I love you ever so much. I would be lost without you. I may not be the prince charming you were after, but god I will try to be the man that you see me as in your eyes.”

You didn’t realise that you were crying until Dean wiped away the tears that had fallen on your cheeks.

“I don’t need prince charming, I just need you. That’s all I ask for. I understand you aren’t all hearts and flowers but what you just said, I… that just proves to me that this is worth it. That all the fights were just us fighting for each other. I love you, you crazy goof.”

Sealed with a kiss, you went back to icing up his shoulder, before stealing more kisses, leading to you missing out on your early night, but allowing you to realise that your real prince charming may have just been a man in tin foil, but who needs real armour when your prince would fight to the end of the earth to be with you.

Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz, three brothers living in New Brighton, Minnesota, love to create snow sculptures in their front yard every winter. They created a detailed 12-foot-tall sea turtle!
The boys begin their work by piling up snow into a crude pile, which they then carefully sculpt into their desired form over the course of several weeks. This year’s sea turtle sculpture took them 300 hours!
They’ve been assembling epic snow sculptures for the past 4 years

Danny may have to pray but how come he never think to get off the car? ;D

Truth is he loves to complain but he trust Steve and even if he seems to do crazy things all the time Danny knows Steve knows what he’s doing all the time. :)

I must say I miss Steve acting like this, I hope they’ll give us some crazy stunts from our SEAL in season 5, so Danny can rant about them while following Steve as usual ;)

daredevilosa  asked:

Please, write a fic about this: Nobody in stark tower noticed that Steve and Nat are dating, except Banner that saw Nat going in Steve's bedroom at night, but he keep secret. And Loki noticed because he is very observer, Steve was too protective to Nat, even in public, and Nat always treating him bad in public, cause she can hide her feelings better than anyone... Steve got hurt on a mission, Natasha is worried, but is the last to visit Steve.

((I don’t know what happened, but when I read this and opened up a blank document, I started out writing from Bruce’s POV and never stopped. I hope this is okay for you. Let me know what you think. ^^))

At first, Bruce thought it might have been like when Tony crept into his room sometimes. The guy was just looking for somewhere to sleep and since his own bed just wasn’t doing it, he went to the next best thing. Maybe Natasha had nightmares too. Maybe she and Steve had worked out an agreement like he and Tony had- they’d share a bed, sometimes share space, and forget about it in the morning. But it kept happening. Bruce was nearly always awake unless he was just coming down from an episode and unless Tony needed him, he liked to spend the nights in the living room, curled up on the couch with a book and a cup of tea in hand, reading the night away.

The living room, as luck would have it, was in such a place that he could see down the main hallway from his position on the couch and he could therefore see each and every time Natasha crept into Steve’s room late at night, always without making a single sound. She’d disappear into his room and not come back out until morning, always before everyone else woke up, never with Steve accompanying her. Whether or not she was aware of Bruce’s presence (she probably was, let’s face it), Natasha never said a word to him about it. He figured she knew he wouldn’t say anything to anyone- it wasn’t his place. But it was pretty clear after the ninth, tenth, eleventh time that there was something going on between them, and it didn’t have anything to do with nightmares or needing platonic mutual comfort.

Warm Things and Onyx Rings

It’s short, but it’s cute.

It was raining. It came down in sheets, pounding against the roof of the Mystery Shack, turning everything grey. It was heavy enough that Dipper had had to close the Shack for the day. A day’s loss wasn’t that big of a deal, especially during Autumn when everyone was home, avoiding vacations and tourist traps. Their flow of customers had been pretty slow for the last few weeks.

Wooden floorboards creaked under socks that slipped on the slick finish. Leaky windows made it cold inside as the rain continued to dance with the wind outside. Fall leaves were dragged to the ground in the downpour, turning everything into a hazy fire of reds and oranges and yellows. Dipper had always thought it looked like melted gold.
