Okay so I saw the new Pirates movie, and I’ll say this:
I liked it. It was fun, it was fresh, good effects, new characters you can root for, old ones you’ve lived since childhood, a fantastic villain (which is a given with Javier Bardem) and some funny moments. And some sad ones too. But.
Why on Earth did they market it as “The Final Adventure”? Why did we get barraged with TV spots that, over and over again, said “This is where the tale ends”? Because it clearly fucking doesn’t, otherwise what was the point of the post credits scene with Scrooge McSquid? You knew you’d be making another one Disney, come on tae fuck
And it’s dawned on me that I don’t think I’ve posted any pictures of Gale. Here she is! (Endgame spoilers below!)
“Want to ditch these losers?” Vetra asks, her mandibles stretching out
in a grin.
“Read my mind,” Ryder says, wagging her eyebrows as she and Vetra
start to walk from the group that formed. Thanks to a live broadcast, she
suddenly realizes that if anyone involved in the Initiative was curious about
her relationship status, those questions are now pretty much answered.
All she wants is to get back to the Tempest and crawl into bed. Maybe she and Vetra can share a kiss or
two before passing out and sleeping for a million years. Her head is pounding.
“Hold that thought,” Ryder says, her stomach churning at the sound of
Scott’s voice. They’ll have a wait a minute for their victory kiss. Vetra will
She walks up to the medical stretcher he’s getting strapped into.
“How’s the hero of the hour feeling?” she asks.
On reading my stories, one might believe that Holmes and I have
always been as we became, co-conspirators in everything. This was not at
all the case. To begin with, I was a little in awe of him. Sherlock
Holmes is possessed of an abundant and even unreasonable vitality, while
I had entered upon our association in broken health. I was a young man,
then, but moved like an old one, having compounded the effects of fresh
war-wounds with the constitutional damage wrought by a dangerous fever,
contracted in the recovery wards of Peshawar. Upon my return to English
shores, amid the slow rebuilding of my strength–painful walks on
warmer days and silent nights at home, studying the medical advances
which I could not yet put into practice–stretching my shoulders and
shifting my hip against the aching trail of the Jezail bullets–I felt
my limits keenly. Holmes seemed limitless.
I had had enough of
human suffering by then to weary me deeply. I bore a kind of exhaustion
of the soul which put me in precisely the frame of mind to appreciate
Holmes’ endless speculative talk, his boundless enthusiasm. I listened,
first amused by the extravagance of his confident assertions, and then
astonished to find him capable of proving every one. He was more than
talk; he was action, decision, adventure. His singular spirit animated a
body which, slender, and used more to study than to sport, still seemed
capable of exceeding the energy of every criminal in London. When
presented with a question he could not solve by talk alone, he would
begin his own investigations; put on the clothes of a gentleman and
infiltrate glittering clubs and great men’s homes, or affect a workman’s
tongue, and go among builders and craftsmen in search of information.
As I went to my rest, I would see him just leaving, poorly dressed to
maintain his anonymity, for a sleepless night about in the vile miasmas
of the back alleys of London. He never seemed to suffer for it. Upon
conclusion of such a case he would sleep until noon for three days
running, and then return to an ordinary schedule, with the
constitutional elasticity of a boy in school. He delighted in the
demands of his work. I only saw him restless and worn under the pressure
of several weeks of perfect peace.
Thanks to @byutak for helping me with translation Thanks to @alainaprana for helping me with Fresh vocabulary
Also thanks to Crayon Queen (loverofpiggies) for giving me the idea to put a different voice effect for Fresh, since he is not a Sans, he need a different voice. And his voice is a edited Kazoo effect. I just loved it!
Hope you can enjoy this little minute for this month. Next year, the X-Event will be ready for everything!!

The Chia Seed Sebum Control Moisture Water is a pore
cleansing toner that removes sebum from deep within the skin and tightens
pores. 100% organic germinated chia seed is used instead of water for enhanced
freshness and effectiveness. The moisture water provides sebum control and
moisturising to the skin.
To be used every morning and night. Take an adequate amount onto a cotton pad
after cleansing and wipe from the middle of the face to the outer sides then
tap lightly for absorption.
The Chia Seed Sebum Control Moisture Water comes packaged with a fresh looking
design. The bottle has a circular pump head which dispenses the moisture water
evenly and conveniently onto the cotton pad. There is 300ml of product in the
bottle. The face shop has recently updated their packaging design.
Chia Seed Sebum Control Moisture Water is a lightweight watery toner. This
allows for the toner to absorb quickly into the skin and also leaves the skin
with a completely non-greasy finish when fully absorbed. The moisture water has
sebum control properties that allow for your face to remain fresh. The moisture
water does in fact provide a tad of moisture to the skin. Skin feels softer and
smoother after use, and the product leaves a slight moisturising layer. It also
aids in moisture absorption from products that you put on after it. Possibly
one of the best thing about thing toner, and really the whole line, is the
amazingly refreshing scent that follows that of the rest of the Chia Seed Sebum
Control line. This is absolutely a fantastic product, no wonder why it was an

Today actor Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) joins us to talk about his new memoir, Easy Street (The Hard Way). In the interview he tells us about what it’s like acting under heavy prosthetic makeup:
“You look like you’re doing a lot of stuff because you’re covered, but the makeup is so seamless and so liquid. The more subtle you are, the more expressive you are. Everything you’re doing, even if you’re just thinking something without moving a muscle, it shows through. When I realized how little I had to do in prosthetic makeup and that the makeup was nothing more than an enhancement — an addition, another layer that added to the texture of the character — it was a liberating feeling for me.”
