On one of our last days in New Zealand, mum and I spent a few hours in the beautiful little town of Cambridge, just south of Auckland. While mum explored the vintage and home wares stores, I wandered around outside and found this gem: an old telephone booth that had been transformed into a used book exchange. It was filled to the brim with books, old and new, all different genres, and all different authors. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a book to swap, but I absolutely loved the concept.
Ferrari P4/5, 2006. A one-off coachbuilt Ferrari built over the platform and mechanicals of the last Ferrari Enzo for the film director and stock exchange magnate James Glickenhaus (pictured with the car). He commissioned Pininfarina to create a car which recalled the styling of Ferrari’s “P” race cars of the 1960s, most specifically the 1967 Ferrari 330 P3/4 (pictured), an example of which Glickenhaus also owned. Pininfarina’s creative director, Ken Okuyama said that they “wanted to stay away from retro design and move towards a more forward thinking supercar"

When Francis was nineteen, surgeons at the military training facilities where he was stationed had agreed to operate on his face, and the procedure had drawn an audience. It had been a revolutionary application of grafting, with a successful outcome and an outpouring of questions from surgeons in training and seasoned doctors alike. That moment was cast in such strikingly high definition in Francis’ mind that he recognized John Watson the moment he caught a glimpse of him in the busy streets of London nearly twenty years later…
John had been one of his very first ordinary conversations… It had been the simplest thing, an exchange of film at work, a few words about the assignment, what the medics would need in terms of training material, but it was the clearest, most magnificent conversation that Francis Dolarhyde had ever had, unhampered by his impediment for the first time in his life. His lisp and scar continued to act as a dense and debilitating barrier for him, and those smooth conversations were very few in his life.
“John…?” With hands curled into his sleeves to hide their trembling, Francis willed himself to look directly at the man, standing in line at an ATM cash machine, looking older but very much the same… “I’m – Francis Dolarhyde, we… we worked –briefly – together in military surgical training.”
Joshifer Daily Reminder: MJ2 Berlin Premiere - so many intimate moments. Josh drinking in Jen - looking her up and down and telling her how nice she looks; Jen beaming at his compliment and coyly responding “Thank you. You too.” Josh incapable of not touching Jen. Jen abandoning all pretense of personal space and molding her body to Josh’s. They both looked gorgeous. They both looked happy in each other’s company. There were hundreds of people around them but only one mattered to the other.
Thank you to @bandathebillie for the gifs and @xshipper who filmed this great exchange. And a BIG THANK YOU to @lilieaurelie who has compiled the Joshifer masterposts all these years for our grateful fandom.
HEADLINES: KATIE COURIC SUED FOR $12 MILLION AFTER BEING CAUGHT MANIPULATING FOOTAGE TO PUSH ANTI-GUN AGENDA
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Former NBC news anchor Katie Couric has been slapped with a $12 million dollar lawsuit by participants in a documentary she was producing.
Plaintiffs in the suit claim that Couric, who has made no secret of her left leaning views, manipulated footage in the film entitled “Under the Gun” to make it appear that the participants were unable to answer simple questions in regard to background checks.
The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a Second Amendment rights advocacy organization, along with two of its members, today filed a $12 million defamation lawsuit against Couric, director Stephanie Soechtig, Atlas Films, and Studio 3 Partners LLC d/b/a Epix for false and defamatory footage featured in the 2016 documentary film.
According to the complaint, the film portrays a fictitious exchange between Couric and members of the VCDL in which the participants appear silent, confused, and avoiding eye contact for nearly nine seconds after Katie Couric asks a question about background checks. An unedited audio recording of the interview reveals that—contrary to the portrayal in the film—the VCDL members had immediately begun responding to Couric’s question and were accurately able to engage in valid arguments on the topic.
In the filing, attornies for the VCDL, Daniel L. Hawes, Esq., and Patricia Webb, allege that the filmmakers “knowingly and maliciously manufactured the fictional exchange by splicing in footage that the filmmakers took surreptitiously after telling the interviewees to be silent for ten seconds so that recording equipment could be calibrated.” The complaint also alledges that the filmmakers manipulated lighting effects to make VCDL participants appear more sinister looking.
“We were horrified to see how Couric and her team manipulated us and the video footage to make us look like fools who didn’t stand up for the Second Amendment,” said Mr. Philip Van Cleave, President of the VCDL. “We want to set the record straight and hold them accountable for what they’ve done. You shouldn’t intentionally misrepresent someone’s views just because you disagree with them.”
A call for statement from Couric’s public relations team resulted in a, “no comment”.
