garbage era


This morning we rolled up to an overwhelmingly littered beach in Bali. Shortly after, a tourist couple arrived and the girl began to pick up trash while her boyfriend surfed. Nathan Fletcher Wade Goodall and Kyuss King were immediately motivated to join in to help. It took 15 minutes before the beach was nearly spotless and served as an important reminder that we all have the power to help the world and become positive influences to others.

It doesn’t matter where you are
Collecting jewels that catch your eye
Don’t let a soul mate pass you by

Remus Lupin, advising Dean Thomas to not make the same mistakes he did

{Androgyny - Garbage}

  • It’s 1977
  • The Maraduers are in their final year at Hogwarts
  • Remus decides to take Sirius to a muggle record store for his birthday
  • Sirius is so excited
  • He doesn’t know too many muggle musicians but he likes Queen
  • Remus finds Sirius’ eagerness endearing 
  • It’s at the record store that things really pick up though
  • Low and behold after no more than five minutes of perusing the stacks, a bright yellow and pink cover in the new releases section immediately catches Sirius’ eye
  • Never Mind the Bullocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols
  • Sirius practically drools all over the floor he wants it so bad
  • But he doesn’t have any muggle money
  • So he begs Remus
  • And Remus buys it for him
  • How bad can it be right?
  • Pretty bad
  • Over the next few weeks Sirius Does. Not. Stop. Playing. The Sex Pistols Vinyl.
  • At first it’s okay
  • Remus doesn’t really like the sound that much (he prefers music that makes him feel good, happy; not so…jarring)
  •  But Sirius loves it
  • He pretends he knows all about the muggle monarchy after listening to God Save the Queen
  • And asks Remus about the Berlin Wall after listening to Holiday in the Sun
  • And he calls himself an anarchist now
  • And Remus just laughs and rolls his eyes
  • But eventually weeks turn into months 
  • And Remus starts to dread coming back to the common room, because you can bet Sirius will be there playing his vinyl loud enough so that everyone in Gryffindor can hear it  
  • And now Remus can say for certain that he hates the Sex Pistols
  • There’s only so many times you can listen to the same 12 songs, after all
  • Until one day Remus comes to the common room and its unusually quiet
  • He enjoys briefly the lack of punk rock
  • Until he walks into his dorm to find Sirius Black standing wide-eyed with one half of a broken record in each hand
  • And Sirius explains that the record wouldn’t play (It finally wore out), so he snapped it in half and also busted the record player out of frustration
  • At first Remus breathes a sigh of relief 
  • But Sirius is genuinely mopey for the next couple of days
  • The Sex Pistols made him happy  
  • They helped him forget about his family and let him dream about a different future for himself
  • And suddenly, Remus Lupin doesn’t hate The Sex Pistols anymore,because–well damn,
  • The Sex Pistols made Sirius happy
  • So Remus goes back to the muggle record store
  • And he spends the absolute last of his muggle money on a brand new record player and a brand new Never Mind the Bullocks… vinyl for Sirius 
  • Remus Lupin watching Sirius Black at Kings Cross on the first day of their first year at Hogwarts
  • Remus Lupin observing that Sirius isn’t quite with his family
  • Remus Lupin not understanding why he keeps staring at Sirius, but he can’t help it
  • Remus Lupin watching Sirius step up onto the trolley (such that his feet are no longer on the ground at all) in order to peer over his massive luggage at the barrier in front of him
  • Remus Lupin running over and pushing Sirius straight through the barrier onto platform 9 ¾ simultaneously pleased and horrified by his own action

anonymous asked:

Can you talk to me about Sandor's intentions and reasons for his actions the night of the blackwater?

Well I tried to!  It ended up being ridiculously long because I got feelings.

First things first–I’m a little hesitant to use the words intentions and reasons to describe his actions that night.  Not because he doesn’t have intentions or reasons for doing what he does, but because I think that the words “intentions” and, more specifically, “reasons” imply that he’s in control of himself.  I don’t think he is by the end.  (I also might be reading too much into your question.  If I am, sorry!)

This thing also got so long I might cry.  Also, ironically, the first two sections are much longer than the second two….sorry….

Here are the sections of them just so you know what you’re getting yourself into:

I. Sansa, Gregor, and True Knights
II. Sandor and the Lannisters
III. What you were actually asking for Part One (Blackwater: The River’s On Fire)
IV. What you were actually asking for Part Two (Blackwater: Gentle Mother Font of Mercy)

Tom Licence has a Ph.D., and he’s a garbage man.

When you think of archaeology, you might think of Roman ruins, ancient Egypt or Indiana Jones. But Licence works in the field of “garbology.” While some may dig deep down to get to the good stuff — ancient tombs, residences, bones — Licence looks at the top layers, which, where he lives in England, are filled with Victorian-era garbage.

Studying what people threw away 150 years ago, Licence is getting to the bottom of an important issue: how much we throw away, and how to change that.

“We dig up rubbish,” says Licence, who is the director of the Centre of East Anglian Studies at the University of East Anglia. (His doctorate is in history.) “We’re interested in what people threw away and how we became a throwaway society.”

future anthropologist: Here we have a ritual item from the anthropocene era, used primarily by h. sapiens sapiens, that served many diverse functions depending on social context. It was used as a drinking vessel during occasions varying from everyday use to ritual celebration before, during, and after sporting events. There has been evidence found that these red cups were prevalent enough in society that songs were written in their honor, and that their presence in such large quantities in excavated middens suggests that, while having high ritual and social importance, they were often contradictorily discarded without any involved reverence.

Twitches (2005)

Disney Channel Original Movie #61

The final DCOM before the High School Musical (and Hannah Montana) era began, Twitches is also the last good Halloween movie starring people who I was already nostalgic to see. It was literally the end of an era, since in 2006, Disney Channel changed their model, and started heavily pushing for all of their actors to be singers as well. They also started making all of their DCOM’s feature the kids already in their tv shows. We can call this the “Garbage Era.” In the final good movie, Tia and Tamara, from Sister, Sister, play twin witches from another dimension who were separated at birth and reunited on their 21st birthday. It’s literally the same plot from the show they were in, but with magic powers involved. They have to save their home dimension and themselves from “the Darkness.”

Rating: C. They made a sequel 2 years later and I don’t even remember the plot.

Apparently Tumblr Can Just AutoPlay Music Whenever The Fuck It Wants As You’re Scrolling Through Your Dashboard

It’s really loud, too, and outta nowhere. Maybe don’t, @staff, sudden noises are not the thing I wanna hear when I’m scrolling through a website.
