So Late

Rating: M

Summary: Jellal regrets the invitation the instant he says it but not enough to rescind. When she ends the call abruptly, he isn’t sure what she’ll do. His words hang in the air in front of him. Guilt. Shame. Self-loathing. He feels them all.

Note: This is a story about cheating. If that’s not your jam, don’t come to this party. Anyway. I listened to Lips of an Angel by Hinder today on a loop. I fucking love that song.

Summary: Based on this Tumblr prompt: “I’m a barista and you’re the obnoxious customer who comes through and orders a venti macchiato while talking on the phone the whole time so I misspell your name in increasingly creative ways every day AU” –Clarke being the barista, Bellamy being the customer.

Notes: I’ve been wanting to fill this one foreverrr and finally found the chance to. Thanks to enoughtotemptme for brainstorming some ideas way back when! Hope you enjoy! :)


Ami Zandile, better known by her stage name Doja Cat, remains as elusive and mysterious as her stage name might suggest. The Los Angeles based rapper stepped onto the music scene at the age of 18 with the viral success of her single “So High,” her buzziest track to-date. Despite her minimal involvement with the press and her low-key approach to social media, she mysteriously sets the music blogosphere ablaze with the unveiling of each new creation. In a heavily marijuana influenced interview with Grind-Time TV rapper Dumbfoundead, she credits her mom for exposing her to much of the music that influences her today. “I used to live in New York, I lived in New York for the first five years of my life, so, my mom was kind of a hip-hop head.” With such tracks such as “Nunchucks” and “Beautiful,” it’s apparent how much of her music is influenced by deep hip-hop and soul of the 90′s. “When she had me, she would play a lot of Eryka Badu, lot of Fugee’s, Jamiroquai, Seal, Earth Wind and Fire, Alex Coltrane, John Coltrane, a lot of stuff like that…and that’s where I come from when it comes to music.” Despite her growing internet fanbase, collaborations with international artists, and the apparent success of her 2014 EP “Purrr!”, thing’s have remained relatively quiet for Zandile, seemingly putting her own projects on hold with the exception of her fairly regular Twitter posts. “I gotta put new shit out” Zandile tweeted recently in her signature concise fashion. We very much agree, Doja, put new shit out you must. -DayTrak

This show has gotten funnier and funnier every season, and I love it to the moon and back. so in honor of my love for this show I posted some gifs from the very first episode (and of course the gifs, include Louise because Whelp, kindred spirit.) 

2015 Women’s World Tour Rankings

#2 | Courtney Conlogue

So impressed with Court this year but I should have seen it coming from afar. Last season (2014) she was injured for most of the year and this year, she came back swinging like the fighter she is.
She started the year so well but didn’t finish as strong. She slipped in the last 2 events, the ones she definitely shouldn’t falter, and the World Title went to Carissa, who dominated the last event.
Bummed for Conlogue but glad to see her playing such a big role in the Title talk. I’m sure will only get her more fired up for 2016.

Los Angeles Times Faces to Watch 2014: Television

The Times asked its reporters and critics to highlight figures in entertainment and the arts who will be making news in 2014. From teen actors to media moguls, rappers to classical cellists, here’s who they picked:

Jonathan Groff He closed out last year as the voice of the rugged mountain man romantic lead in Disney’s animated feature “Frozen.” But things are about to get less PG for Jonathan Groff.

The 28-year-old actor is switching out the unadulterated fun for adult-only fun when he stars in the HBO series “Looking.” The half-hour dramedy, from Michael Lannan and Andrew Haigh (“Weekend”), centers on three gay friends navigating adulthood in progressive San Francisco.

“It’s as extreme as it gets,” Groff acknowledged during a cab-ride phone call. That’s no stretch. Within the first minute of “Looking,” Groff’s character is occupied in an awkward sexual encounter amid foliage.

The Pennsylvania native made a mark as the hot-to-trot, shaggy-haired lead (Melchior) in the Tony-winning Broadway musical “Spring Awakening.” He’d go on to bolster his theater cachet in productions that included “Hair” and “Red.”

He’s also built a presence offstage with sideline TV parts. In a role that made use of his musical sensibilities, Groff had an arc on Fox’s “Glee” as Jesse St. James, the male lead of the rival glee club. And in 2012 he appeared in the final season of Starz’s “Boss” as an adviser to Kelsey Grammer’s character, Chicago Mayor Tom Kane.

“I feel really lucky that I got to play supporting roles and see great actors do the daily grind of a television show — and to learn from that,” he said.

He wrapped the year with “Frozen”, in which he drew notice for being the first “prince” voiced by an openly gay actor.

In 2014, Groff will attempt to prove he can carry a TV show when “Looking” premieres Jan. 19 — something HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo isn’t worried about. “I think he is built to be the lead of a show,” Lombardo said. “The camera loves him. He is frustrating and lovable and sexy and flawed and charming and just so human.”

Being the face of a show has its own pressures. Ahead of its premiere, “Looking’s” place in gay TV history is already generating analysis. It’s drawn comparisons for its brashness to its time-slot companion “Girls” and Showtime’s groundbreaking retired series “Queer as Folk” and been blasted for its lack of diversity.

“I feel like a lot of people will be tuning in with the expectation of seeing an entire demographic being represented, which I feel is such a dangerous expectation,” he said. “It can’t be everything to everyone.”

Later this year, viewers can also see Groff in the buzzed-about Ryan Murphy theater-to-telepic adaptation of Larry Kramer’s AIDS drama “The Normal Heart,” which also features Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo and will also air on HBO.

“I hope I don’t overstay my welcome on anyone’s TV,” he said.

Overstay his welcome?!?!  That’s not possible.

THOUGHTS ON TONIGHTS PERFORMANCE

This one performance has the potential to destroy so many preconceived notions about who One Direction are. People who would normally turn their noses up at a boyband will see them performing with a member of one of the biggest rock groups in the world. This could reach a whole new group of fans. The song choice gave them the opportunity to showcase their unique vocal talents. Individually and most importantly as a group. It’s not what most people expect One Direction to sound like. Their image. Harry out there on national television grinding on a rock legend will hopefully make people actually consider the fan base this group is trying to reach. They outgrew the target audience of their merchandise about two years ago. My fondest wish is that this is a huge step in marketing them to the demographic they are desperately in need of being marketed to.
