i love this video so much

“You Have Been Such a Blessing to Me” By Tina Knowles Lawson (x)

To Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly and Angie

When I was asked to write an open letter to you, I thought about the hundreds of texts and emails that I have sent to you on holidays and on Sundays, when I ask you to say a prayer to thank God for each other. Every day, I wake up thinking about how much I love, admire and cherish each of you.

I gave birth to two of you, but I have four incredible daughters. Writing this brought to mind all the ways you guys have been such a blessing to me.

When I’m feeling sad or not-so-cute or maybe a little sorry for myself, and you all include me in your group chat and tell me how hot I still look or how cool I am. Maybe you send me a crazy YouTube video. What actually works best is a cute photo of my grandchildren.

I remember slumber parties after my divorce, when we watched old movies and ate a lot of ice cream. I felt so loved and supported. The roles were reversed, and it was ME who needed nurturing.

I remember my first date when every one of you weighed in on what I should wear.

The obvious things about all of you are apparent. You are all strong, beautiful, intelligent and smart businesswomen. You are so much more than that. You are all kind, generous and you treat people well. You are all amazing mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends. All of you have total self-respect.

Beyoncé, I wish people could see how you are when you’re not in front of the camera or on the stage. How compassionate and kind you are to people, how you look them right in the eye when you speak to them. How hard you work, how generous you are with your time and money. How you don’t care if anyone knows about it because you do it from the heart. I wish they could see you with the Make-A-Wish Foundation kids, how patient you are and how your love has helped to extend lives. Yes, you are a huge star, but you have somehow managed to stay grounded and humble in the wake of all your success.

If you ever wondered where the character of Guinan on TNG came from, watch this video!  I always liked her character, and now knowing this makes it so much more special that it happened.  So much love for Whoopi, and Hannah - so glad this video was possible!  :-)

Zach Rance Tribute Video

Hey guys, here’s a tribute video I made for Zach recently. This video summarizes why I think he’s such an entertaining complex deep, colourful character with an amazing personality who loves and appreciates his fans very much…there was so much more material that I couldn’t use due to time constraints. I hope it puts into perspective why I’m such a big fan of his.

Hope you guys like it :) I might make more in the future… maybe even some with Frankie.

Yes, you are a huge star, but you have somehow managed to stay grounded and humble in the wake of all your success.

SOLANGE, I knew when you were born three days late that you would walk to the beat of your own drum. You were always my rebel warrior! Always defending the underdog and fighting for what you believe in. I remember you, at 10 years old, started a petition to remove a bad teacher, and your dad and I were so proud of you. I love that you do not let others define who you are, or what you are. Whether in your music, fashion or your life, you truly are your own incredible, unapologetic person! As tough as you are, you will drop everything to take care of someone you love.

KELLY, I know without a doubt that you were a true gift from God. You came to live with us when you were only 11 years old. You were the sweetest, most kind person I had ever met and you still are. You are also a true survivor. You never give up. Your discipline and drive always inspires me. You make me want to take better care of my body and constantly motivate me to exercise and take time for myself. You have the best listening skills and are a loyal friend to many. I’ve seen you take the jewelry off of your arm and give it to someone because you wanted to make them feel good.

ANGIE, you are my niece, but we have always been more like mother and daughter! You were always so mature, always challenging me and questioning why. (Fortunately I never believed in the “Because I said so” or “I’m the adult” crap, either.) I always trusted that you would look out for and protect Solange, Kelly and Beyoncé, and you did! You still do sometimes. You are so smart and perceptive, and you see through bullshit right away! You’ve always had our backs. Our own family fixer!! You know I call you Olivia Pope!!!!!

I’m often asked, what was my most proud moment? I would have to say it was at my recent wedding, when all four of you said in your own words that I taught by example and that I helped to make you the women you are today!!!! That was truly my proudest moment!

All my love,

Mom

So I just binged watched a whole bunch of Ellen DeGeneres videos on youtube and I couldn’t help but think how much I would love if Ellen had Ali and Kyle Krieger on her show. Like can this be a thing?

This horse just lovesss to stretch. Lessoned on lee (interestingly lol pics and vids to come) then hacked on cosa and after about 20/30 minutes of transition work and getting over the scary light posts i let him just canter and trot really stretched out and he goes so freaking well. You can just tell how much he loves it because he doesn’t speed up or spook or look at anything. His trot looks even better so i’ll post some video later. Great last ride of the year, i’m gonna miss him so much 😔

anonymous asked:

After someone asked about Cross gene videos I thought i'd do the same, I was too scared to ask before lol but do you have any links for Uniq things? I didn't want to get into them but it's difficult, and now I really want to to get into them and find out more. Thank you!!

Haha, y’all are always welcome to ask me about nugu group videos and information, my goal in life is to talk about groups like UNIQ and Boys Rep and Cross Gene enough that other people have no choice but to get into them.

Ok, so UNIQ doesn’t have quite as much because they’re newer, but here’s some of the stuff I watched to get into them!

  • UNIQ: The Best Debut: Three episode show of UNIQ just doing random boy band things. The highlight is seeing their dorm and seeing Yixuan wake up the other members
  • Happy Camp: I really love Happy Camp in general, and this was hilarious. They do some “acting,” Yixuan does a hardcore girl group dance and Sungjoo smacks himself in the crotch
  • MTV Music VIllage (parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5): Part 1 is Yixuan waking up the members (again), part 2 is them playing a game and 3-5 are an interview/more games!
  • Let’s Dance (EOEO and Falling in Love): This is just. Beautiful. They do the EOEO choreo in slow motion and do an “ab parade” I feel so blessed.
  • UNIQ Life (Yixuan, Sungjoo, Wenhan, Seungyoun, Yibo): really short cute videos of each of the members just being themselves

Random stuff I haven’t watched but plan to:

There’s actually a ton more because there’s an amazing Youtube channel called UNIQ ENG SUB and if you ever run out, I would just suggest going there and working your way down because there’s actually a lot, it’s just that a fair bit of the early stuff appears to be Chinese or Taiwanese shows rather than Korean ones, so people might not know to look for it!

Hi TinyTaco! I’m not sure if we can submit anything to you if so, sorry!! But if we can, I’ve made a little drawing for you if that’s alright, I saw your last video & I wanted to draw something lol. Hope you like it!!

OH MY GOSH THIS IS AWESOME <3333 Thank you so much, seriously I really love your style and you drew me so cute <33 *hugs* and of course you can submit anything if you want, don’t have to apologize~ I love it, and I hope you have a wonderful day!! <33

Favorite Rihanna song.

I have always been insanely into “We Found Love” and I think that would be my choice. I also love that video so much. 

But I feel like we should also remember Rihanna has made so many rap singles awesome that wouldn’t have been that great without her, like hasn’t she kind of been saving Eminem’s ass lately? I feel like whenever I hear a new Eminem song now I’m like, man, it’s been a long time since The Eminem Show, I hope he got Rihanna for the hook. Also “Run This Town” is so good. If she shows up in anybody else’s work she is basically saving the day and about to deliver you something amazing. Her Lonely Island thing is awesome. I swear she’s on like 9 of my favorite rap songs. But what I really am thinking about is T.I.’s “Live Your Life” which Rihanna makes into one of my favorite songs ever. Seriously if that song comes on, whatever room I’m in gets instantly turned into a fucking big messy birthday party. I feel the same way about cheers and umbrella. I know there are many others I’m forgetting too. 

Oh and I also agree with you that ‘James Joint’ is a fucking amazing song. But in the end my choice is a boring one. I think “We Found Love” is perfect. I felt that way the first time I heard it.

Well today has been a not so great day.

Really Zayn, really? Defending some guy you just met and while going against your brother, the brother that you’ve known for five years. I don’t get how you could throw this all away for some guy.

Liam posted that video as a freaking joke, and this turns into a fight? Liam can joke about it, cause you know why? He’s still in the band. They can replace you, don’t think you’re all that great. You know why they can replace you? Because you left one direction, you don’t get to say anything if they replace you.

And Naughty Boy, you suck. I hope you realize that you are nowhere near Louis and you will never be as good as him.

To conclude, I’ve always loved Zayn so much and I thought he was the greatest person ever, but after this I’m not so sure if this is the same Zayn I fell in love with.

zaynmalik1d and zaynmalik are two different people & I think I just lost my respect for zaynmalik

Guys, I just wanted to let you know how much this fandom means to me. I’ve grown up always feeling like I never really belonged anywhere, but this is the one place where I feel right at home. I love my friends but at the end of the day I don’t think they really understand me. I’m just that annoying girl that won’t shut up about Taylor Swift. But you all do understand. You guys understand the flooding of happiness that can come from something as simple as an HQ picture or an instagram video of a concert you didn’t even attend. So, I just wanted to thank you all for providing an environment where I feel as though I can really be myself. I love you guys.  

anonymous asked:

Maine have you seen the video of minseok and yixing dancing omg I know it's old but iTS GOLDDDDD

I love this video so much T___T you can see how Yixing and minseok are such good dancers. I have to watch twice to focus on one member >__<

anonymous asked:

Do you ever feel like Dan doesn't like his fans that much? Sometimes I feel like he's so genuine and thankful and other times idk if I'm feeling cynical or if I think he's feeling cynical, but it seems to me like he's just putting on an act or something. I don't know, what do you think?

okay, i’ve been pondering on how to answer this for a while and honestly, i’d have to say no. 

dan genuinely loves us. don’t doubt that for a single second. he’s done so much for us and honestly cares about us. if you ever watch his liveshows, he gives out a lot of advice and even helps students with their studying. dan puts so much effort into his videos and he always makes sure that it’s quality content he’s confident in and that he thinks we would want to see. 

i don’t doubt that dan loves us at all.

now, the whole putting on an act thing.. i can see where you’re coming from with that. and sometimes, yes, i think he does. but that’s also completely understandable. some days he might be in a bad mood, tired, hungry, jetlagged, exhausted, and/or just not want to deal with things. and that’s perfectly okay. but if he has something scheduled (like a liveshow) he’ll act a bit more peppy and energetic otherwise someone in the chat will call him out and be like “you’re really sad” or whatever. i wish that didn’t happen but there’s always that one person. 

however, that’s the only “acting” i see. everything else is 100% genuine and honest to me. 

this ask is a bit of a jumbled mess, but hopefully you understand what i’m getting at!!

Unconditional Love & Presence | 5.6.2015

So my puppy’s stomach hasn’t been doing so well for a couple of years now… he’s been taking zinc for his zinc deficiency but it makes him vomit usually due to upset stomach. And the last couple of days he hasn’t been much like himself, he’s been moody and sluggish. He hasn’t been his hyperactive fun loving loud self… I could feel my stomach hurting when I was around him and my heart was heavy because of the pain… I started to look up online different things that could help with his upset stomach like herbal remedies for dogs or something but found nothing we haven’t already tried… I then remembered a video I watched a while ago about a woman being cured by pure thought and intention alone… so I sat down right behind my puppy and placed my hands on his tummy as he was faced out towards the patio door with his head down… I started to visualize the feeling of having a healthy and happy stomach and then I started to repeat in my mind, “healthy dog”… I visualized him already being healthy and happy and not needing anything to change about him. All of a sudden he picked his head up and started to whimper (like he was talking to me) and then he started panting (like he usually does when he’s not feeling sick) and then he got up and started to bark at me (in a playful way) and when I opened up the door and he ran out as fast as he could! He looked like his normal happy and healthy self! I threw the ball around with him for a little while until he got overheated (it’s spring and it’s starting to get warm out but he still has his undercoat… he’s a Samoyed). So I brought out some cold water and some ice cubes and he played with them for a little while in the shade and now me and him are hanging out together in the living room while I type this. It’s amazing how much power we have and all we have to do is believe and trust in ourselves and the ones we’re loving (healing)! It was also the Universe’s way of telling me I can indeed save myself! Considering that’s been a core negative belief of mine that I’ve become fully conscious of within this last week or so. It was like “see! you’re stronger and more powerful than you think you are!” lol
