just two guys….bonding… i can’t believe this is my first contribution to this amazing show…

Pearl takes Marina to a Halloween horror house.

Her plan to be suave backfires

Empty chairs

There’s a grief that can’t be spoken,
There’s a pain goes on and on.
Empty chairs at empty tables,
Now my friends are dead and gone.

Here they talked of revolution.


Here it was they lit the flame.


Here they sang about tomorrow


And tomorrow never came.

From the table in the corner
They could see a world reborn
And they rose with voices ringing
And I can hear them now!

The very words that they had sung
Became their last communion
On this lonely barricade at dawn.

Oh my friends, my friends forgive me
That I live and you are gone.
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken.
There’s a pain goes on and on.

Phantom faces at the windows.


Phantom shadows on the floor.


Empty chairs at empty tables


Where my friends will meet no more.


Oh my friends, my friends, don’t ask me
What your sacrifice was for
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will sing no more

Empty chairs at empty tables


Where my friends will sing no more.

“Do they frighten you, child?” asked the kindly man. “It is not too late for you to leave us. Is this truly what you want?”
Arya bit her lip. She did not know what she wanted. If I leave, where will I go?

leave them be

I'm a white girl so I don't know if it's okay for me to be bothered by this, but I have a lot of friends (also white) making posts about what's going on in Marawi, Palestine, etc. and adding unhelpful but well-meaning comments and making tweets saying things like "I get so heated when people assume all Muslims are terrorists". it feels like they want brownie points for not being like those other, nastier white people and idk how to call them out, considering my own whiteness?

white anon again: I think you’ve said you’re not a POC but I figure as a prominent voice in the discourse a message would be seen by a lot of people who are, with differing opinions. sorry if that’s presumptuous or annoying!

im from The White Republic, but i’d like to know how to handle situations like that too

The other day I was watching My Cat From Hell, I’ve never seen it before and was pretty impressed with that Jackson Galaxy guy! He knows his shit. But it got me thinking about how we treat cats…

Cats are very intelligent creatures, they can be very active, loyal, affectionate, playful, and are really pretty awesome animals. I realize that a lot of people already think this, it was weird for me, a bird person, to think about..and even weirder that despite how many people keep them and think those things do not make an attempt to treat them as such.

The argument FOR outdoor cats (they get bored inside, aren’t happy) fails to take into consideration that we can take care of cats the same way we do dogs; we can take them on walks to get their exercise, train them to sit and stay, play with them to give them enrichment, find the healthiest diets… so why don’t we? Why is this so hard for people to realize? Why are they considered so different from dogs? Like obviously they’re different, but their needs aren’t, we just need to accomplish them in different ways.

anonymous asked:

Any thoughts on how Gwyn, Augus and the crew would do / what roles they might play if they were cast in the Dragon Age universe?

Not…really?

I think I got an ask about this like a year or so ago, or I spent some time thinking about it a while back. Or some…combination. I mean if I wanted to write some crossover I think I would’ve written it instead of a rarepair, heh.

Though I definitely think the Raven Prince would be from Tevinter.

That’s about all I’ve got.

Stan Marsh: And best of all, I wrote that all the Scientologists should no longer have to pay money to belong. 

Scientology President: What? 

Stan: I realize that to really be a church, we can’t charge people for help.

President: What are you, stupid?! Then how do we make money from those people?! 

Stan: …Well, it’s not about the money. It’s about the message, right?

President: Wait a minute, whoa, whoa! You don’t actually believe this crap, do you?? Dummy! Brainwashed alien souls?? E-meters and thetan levels?? Those people out there buy that crap, and I thought YOU were smart enough to see what was really going on! 

Stan: But you said that there were–

President: What’s better than telling people a stupid story and having them believe you?!  Having them PAY you for it, stupid! 

Stan: But then, why me? Why do you need me to write something so badly?

President: Because if those people all think you’re the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard, then they’ll all buy your new writings, and you and I together will make three million dollars! 

Stan: Three million dollars? 

President: That’s how the scam works! But this is a scam on a global scale! Do you fucking get me now?!

It’s almost past midnight and I’m crying over Dead Inside.
And you know what? Muse is a BEAUTIFUL band. I don’t know much about music, I can read sheet music and tell you what a chord progression is, but I don’t need extensive knowledge to describe to you what Muse is.
They’re unique, experimental, certainly not afraid to take risks in their songs and albums and concepts. Just look at the 2nd Law. How many people do you think told them not to make those songs? And can you imagine a Muse without them?
They’re also classic, driving, and they have such a soul. When you hear songs like Resistance or Uprising or even Guiding Light, you get that swell of epic emotion that I really can’t describe other than a distinct quality of Muse music. You each syllable and each drum beat and each pick of the bass’s strings and every single guitar strum like it was destined to be there.
Muse are not afraid of concepts and stories, either. They take you to places and faraway lands that only their heads could think of, mixed in with haunting tales of government corruption and hopelessness in songs like Hoodoo and desperation like the kind found in Map of the Problematique. Want to ride horses in space? Muse has you covered. Just play the last track of Black Holes and Revelations. Love songs are their specialty as well, and no one can bring tears to your eyes like the sound of Muse in Invincible.
They’ve made albums that will go down in history. They’ve captured the apocalypse and morality and human fear in fourteen flawless tracks, all played live as nothing short of a mind blowing spectacle. Their riffs and their vocals and their bass lines and their drum beats are there in your soul, whether the subject matter be about insanity, love for a captor, the end of the world, or a fear of the unknown in death. And hell do they do it beautifully.
They’re even dark. Hell, are they dark. Lyrics like those found in Screenager and Citizen Erased talk of corruption in its most true form: human. And I’ve never heard of songs quite like Meglalomania because no band is as daring and deep rooted in themselves and the world around them as Muse. Who else would use bones in a song?
Muse were even juvenile once, too, capturing what it’s like to be a young adult or teenager, scrambling through life wrought with hope, ambition, heartbreak, and anger. The sounds are younger and the lyrics are youthful, but the potential is so powerful it burns and brings tears to your eyes. It’s the start of something phenomenal. And if Showbiz or Spiral Static or Cave doesn’t convince you of that, you’re listening wrong.
Us Musers have a bright future to look forward to, ironically consisting of songs and words written about the loss of human morality and about our governments’ never ending control and hidden oppression. But we look forward to it like it’s our birthdays, because after waiting 89 days 12 insane and new and unusual songs are what we all live for, whether they be about psychopaths or corrupted love or falling deep within yourself into something evil. We live and breathe for the music because, for some, it’s all we have.
And on the rare occasion like tonight, when I’m a bit stressed about life and the world, it’s nice to have that constant there to listen to and love. It’s nice to hear the music that our favorite soccer playing-father extraordinaire, leopard print loving-blonde haired, and crazy, ingenious, clever, glitter obsessed, paranoid little front man make together. They’re beautiful people with extraordinary minds that are changing our world with every breath and every second of music and every show they play.
That’s why it’s way too late at night and I’m crying over Dead Inside: because I’m a Muser and I will always owe my very life to this band.

anonymous asked:

I've not studied Calvinism/Reformed theology in depth, so please excuse me if I'm missing something. If God's invitation to be with Him is only for certain people selected by God himself (which I believe God is well within his right to do, because he is God), how do you know you're one of those people? What makes you think God chose you, as opposed to you living your life believing you were chosen but then finding out at the end that you weren't predestined as one of God's hand-picked? Cheers!

Very good question!

The Bible does not suggest in any way that we should concern ourselves over who is elect or not. Instead, the Bible calls us to believe, to receive Jesus Christ as Savior–by grace through faith–and that whoever places their faith in Christ will be saved. 

“What makes you think God chose you?”

If you understand the wickedness of your sin, the holiness of God, and you have come to Christ for mercy and forgiveness; if your life has changed from sinful to holy, if you desire Christ and not sin, if you are not an empty professor but are producing fruit in keeping with repentance, then it is safe to say you are “one of the chosen.”

What made me say this? Because the unregenerate person is an enemy of God, dead in his trespasses and sin, a slave to the world and the flesh and the devil. He has no desire to please God because of his fallen nature. Meanwhile, the one who responds to the call of Christ to repent and follow Him is the one whom the Father has drawn to Jesus. As Jesus said:

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.”

John 6:44

What is my assurance that I will wake up one day and still love Christ?

“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.”

Romans 8:29-30

God ALONE is the Author of our salvation. It was never our choice. He was the One who chose us to reveal His mercy in and through us, not because of anything we are, but because of His grace. He has planned it all out from the beginning to the end (Christians have a sure destination, not an uncertain one, as seen in Paul’s confidence that we will be glorified). That is a beautiful promise that every Christian can cling to!
