goat statue

ok ok fuck. by popular demand here is a summary of my adventure zone homestuck au. god fucking hell

so 12 trolls play a game:

-rust: barrie, thief of heart, rust for redrobe

-bronze: magnus, heir of time (heirs rush in), earthy brown, low lifespan, latinx hc??

-gold: davpot, maid of blood (for bonds), gold bc pilot

-olive: ahvee, prince of doom, olive bc friendly and useful

-jade: mearle, page of life (power he doesnt know how to harness), jade bc plants and nuturing + religion

-teal: carrey, rogue of breath, teal bc dragons

-cerulean: lucrea, sylph of mind, cerulean bc psychic powers

-indigo: kilian, knight of rage (rage doesnt suit her but nothing else quite did either), indigo bc Strong

-purple: taakko ataaco (mage of void bc hes resourceful, a hands-on improviser) n chalup ataaco (witch of light bc shes active n direct + void n light r opposites), purple bc magic

-violet: johann, bard of hope, violet bc fish

-fuchsia: ayngus, seer of space (self explanatory), fuchsia bc he deserves the world

the universe is a jellyfish, whoever that is smiling inside the hunger is caliborn/lord english, edward and lydia are doc scratch

so theyve played through their session and theyre all standing on the lily platform ready to claim the ultimate prize, and magnus has just opened the door when the platform gets slashed. him, taako, and merle make it through before the break; lup was halfway through when the door was destroyed and enters the new universe already dead.

their reward in their session was to be reincarnated as humans in the new universe, with no memory of their previous life - they grow up as mags, taako, and merl. (note that theyre all 13 when the story takes place. merle just talks like an old guy)

mags lives in the suburbs with his pet goldfish, steven. steven glows white and shoots green lightning and can bend the laws of spacetime, but mags doesnt question this much. his stepdad who he named the fish after is dead, but he did leave the house full of chairs. fucker sure liked carpentry to an unreasonable degree, huh

taak lives in nyc (new york, but also an apartment in a city) and he fucking loves wizards. his house is just full of shitty wizards and experimental cookbooks. his older brother sazed, however, seems to love circuitously mocking his passions by leaving all these fuckin cakes around the house. the stairs are clogged with cake. its a deeply-layered mind game cooking war

merls been living on an island for as long as he can remember. his grandpa pan is a well known botanist, environmentalist, and explorer, and hes not home very often, so a lot of the time merl is just alone with his gardens. pan is super into pumpkins specifcally for some reason, and also filled the house with statues of goats n kenny chesney memorabilia

meanwhile, all the other trolls are stuck in the veil. similarly to what karkat thought of john when they first discovered the humans, like half the remaining group started to freak out about being apparently trapped on a meteor for the rest of their lives and the ensuing panic turned into resentment towards the thb for escaping. p much everybody but lucretia, barry, and angus started to lose their cool real bad

so to prevent everybody from making rash decisions and fucking over the thbs lives lucretia took the Executive Decision to wipe everyones memories with her psychic abilities. this broke davenport (as he was a psion she had to be more thorough with him to be sure the wipe worked, but she went too far and destroyed his mind, mituna style). barry, another powerful psychic, thought her measures were excessive at best and tried to stop her (make her pay but like. not fatal), retreating deep into the meteor when he proved unsuccessful. lucretia blamed a ton of stuff on him to make sure nobody would listen to him and ruin everything

from there, she took it upon herself to guide the thb into playing sburb, since that was the trolls only chance of getting out any more. the others on the meteor joined in one by one, without actually remembering anything about their old friends. there wasnt much lucretia could do to stop barry from contacting them from his own husktop, however; she could sometimes interfere with his signal, but that was it. so while his messages were sometimes garbled, he acted as an occasional guide in the same way he does in taz

so the boys play the game. lup is a jar of ashes on taakos shelf, his first sprite prototyping was an umbrella and the second was her. lupsprite. she only remembers fragments of their old life but they know theyre twins. magnus prototyped steven and a wooden duck. merle prototyped his grandpas book, the xtreme teen survival guide, and an onion

since they dont have a time or space player, their session is null. only by bringing in the trolls and their planets from the previous session will they be able to complete the game: this way their main quest leads directly to their friends being rescued, which works to lucretias advantage as she doesnt have to invent a reason why they should rescue the trolls.

everthing, of course, goes wrong. taak puts a bathtub in mags’ hallway.

Important

Gavlebocken, we hardly knew ye. Truly.

Every year for Advent, the town of Gavle, Sweden, builds a giant Christmas goat out of straw. And every year, arsonists do their best to bring it down.

This time, despite high-tech cameras and two security guards, the goat didn’t even last a full 24 hours.

The Gavlebocken was set up on Sunday afternoon. The Local reports that this year’s statue, and the associated marketing and festivities, cost about a quarter of a million dollars.

This year, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Gavlebocken, so it was a birthday celebration as well as the standard-practice yuletime goat-statue festival.

“But by 11 p.m.,” The Local writes, “it was engulfed in flames.”

Yule goats are an old-timey Christmas tradition in Scandinavia and Northern Europe. Today, you can still find straw goats decorating many Scandinavian Christmas trees, as well as the occasional larger version: the Swedish town of Gavle, for example, puts up a 40-foot-tall straw goat every year in early December and keeps it there until after the New Year.

So what, right? It’s just a goat statue. It doesn’t even make noise or drag around cars with its tongue or anything. Except that the Gavle Goat does have one special power … the power to be burned down, against city officials’ best efforts, almost every year.

4 Awesome Winter Customs America Needs to Steal

anonymous asked:

ANJ, what do you think of Drake's "I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay." line in Summer Sixteen? You think he reached that GOAT status? 🤔

Bear with yo, I’mma speak on this in depth and clear this shit up right now, HA! Firstly, you know ANJ is a Jigga Stan, but I do enjoy Drake and have no qualms listening to his pop-friendly hip hop. As Hov says, music is universal and we all have the ability to appreciate the many forms of rap. But let’s get into Drake’s latest false start: No one should compare themselves to JAY Z, least not Drake. Was it even a shot? I’m not sure. Because a rapper with reference tracks shouldn’t go anywhere near that comparison to save themselves embarrassment - and I’m hoping Drake knows that and was instead paying homage to the legend Hov. If it was a shot? I’d say I appreciate Drake is having his moment currently, and his music is catchy as fuck and serves a purpose in the game, but it is fascinating how the public have given him so much hype his ego has managed to inflate to declaring himself to be Jayhovah. Nah boy. #FACTS? Drake is worth $75 million, Hov is worth $560 million. Drake has four platinum albums, Hov has SIXTEEN. Drake has sold 5 million albums worldwide, Hov has sold 60 million. Drake is signed to Wayne, who is signed to Birdman; Hov built Roc-A-Fella Records from nothing into one of the most successful rap labels ever. OVO Sound is owned by Warner Music Group, but meanwhile Hov owns the entire Roc Nation company, including the music label, management group, and a sports management division. Drake signs his life away to a streaming service, Hov BUYS one. Drake is an ambassador for a NBA team, while Hov has actually owned a NBA team AND still owns the arena the Nets play in. AND if we’re simply talking skills, which is the most important part of any rapper, Hov out-rhymes Drake ten-fold. Hov studied his elders and perfected the rap craft, but Drake is out here just swinging at his OGs. Rappers these days seem to get a little cash, quickly forget who the GOAT is, and start speaking out they neck. EVERYBODY is influenced by JAY Z, so these rappers need to stop coming at him with this petty shit. He perfected what it means to be a successful rapper, while still showing a consistent talent as he changed to fit the rap environment. Y’all need to leave him alone with his business ventures, cause he’s on some mogul shit now trying to create a legacy for his future generations. There is room for everyone to make music and spread love, these fake beefs are worthless and not worth our time yo. Step to Hov when you can actually match him Drake, otherwise stay in your lane.
