I was listening to Better Than Words yesterday and I was thinking how is it possible that a song that used song titles for lyrics is just so brilliant… I mean who would have thought this was a good idea and that it could actually work? WHO?!
i hope you all know that i am heartbroken that i didn’t know enough about ballet companies to set tangled ribbons in an actual ballet company. my ideal ballet story takes place with during winter because ballet during the winter is an aesthetic and also because
When I joined Tumblr I thought it was purely for the fandoms. I had no idea how brilliant the booklr community is, and how much enjoyment I get out of seeing people enjoy books. Thanks guys, book nerds are the best.
if they pull this off, they’re just as brilliant as i’ve always thought they were and if they don’t, i spent an extra week believing that they’re just as brilliant as i’ve always thought they were… nothing to lose imo
Josh: I would, with great frequency, find my way into Brad’s trailer when he wasn’t there, just to see what I could do. He’d keep weird, life-affirming post-its on his mirror and I’d change them into horrible insults. Janel came to me one day and said, “We should send some sort of bouquet from Brad to Jimmy for Valentine’s Day,” and I thought, “Oh my god, that’s brilliant. Plus, I have personalized stationary, which will certainly add artistic verisimilitude.” We bought something ridiculous like three dozen roses to be delivered to Jimmy.
Bradley: I remember I had a check written for $3,000 to the guy who was editing the In Memoriam reel at the SAG Awards because I thought “How great, let’s kill Josh.” But the guy chickened out. So when I wrote my second West Wing script, Josh had to say several times on national TV, “I’m a terrible actor. I can’t act.”
So for some reason, I started singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight and I realised I don’t really know who originally wrote it. Turns out, it was written in 1939 as Mdube by Solomon Linda in Zulu and performed by The Evening Birds.
He was completely ripped off by The Weavers and other western musicians because they thought his music was “simply tribal”. That’s not all.
Like, what the fuck? He wrote one of the most iconic songs of all time and died in poverty. This wasn’t the 1800s. Black artists are still disenfranchised because of western ignorance and institutionalised racism.
Since it’s black history month, I thought I’d share this.
I really want this to be my senior quote when I’m a senior, not only because it’s a Kate quote but also because it is so beautiful and inspiring. It is such a thought-provoking quote and I love it. She’s brilliant, talented, inspirational, a cinnamon roll, and I love her so much.
You most certainly are not the only person who thought that. In panels like the one below, I felt like Isayama wasn’t even trying to be subtle.
It’s not just how he looks. He’s shown standing up to the Marleyan captain and speaking up despite the impropriety of being an Eldian. Even Jerwin’s leadership abilities were mentioned. By all appearances, this is cut and paste Erwin.
Gorgeous banner by @akai-echo , who was inspired by the original movie poster for the film. It is absolutely perfect! The loudest shout-out to @eala-musings, who
beta’d this in no time. She’s such a champion. Thank you!
Loosely based on the film Journey to the Shore, a 2015 Japanese romantic drama film directed
by Kiyoshi Kurosawa. It is adapted from the novel Kishibe no Tabi by
Japanese writer Kazumi Yumoto.
Summary: Even after three years, Katniss
Mellark still cannot resign herself to the death of her husband. When Peeta
Mellark returns, she is willing to go to any lengths to keep him with her, even
agreeing to abandon everything and embark on a journey that will change everything she believes about love, regret and the persistence of hope. A story
in three parts.
Written for @thegirlfromacrossthepond, who has
a birthday today. You are one of my best friends, a brilliant writer, and a
wonderful person. I thought you, of all people, might enjoy this offering. It’s a little on the
heavy side and not a typical holiday fare but I hope you’ll like it in the end. Happy birthday!
Warning - Major Character Death before opening
of the story.
Part 1 - Lost
Madge dabbed at the corner of her mouth with the linen table
napkin. I don’t know how my best friend always managed to eat without
smudging her lipstick while I only managed to look like a half-done up clown,
but it was one of the many superpowers that I begrudgingly envied her.
“He’s a financial consultant with Capitol Funds. His family
has a house in almost every District. Gale has known him since college.”
It was her latest set-up – some nice man of marrying age with more
money than God and an impeccable pedigree. Someone to take her widowed best
friend off of her hands.
I’m genuinely confused, why is there so much hate? I thought the episode was brilliant! Also, this isn’t our story to write, people are getting upset because it didn’t go exactly as they wanted it to. But when has this series ever done something mainstream, or predictable? No one in the crew deserves this hate, and I feel so sad that these are the reactions they will recieve, and not the love from the rest of us
In this week’s NEWS na futari
(2016/10/14), Shige was on fire and I’d like to share some of his brilliant moments. ♥
He went with a young job hunter to see how expensive and demanding the job hunting business is. She is left with only 90€/month to spend freely while also being supposed to spend 600+€ on proper dress code attire and 80€ on photos to go with the job application.
In the studio, they go on to talk about unpaid internships which KoyaShige get into a little discussion about. Koyama argues that internships pay in experience which made Shige shot him a snappy “That’s something only people who have money would say.” Also, when one of the expert guests insists on handwritten applications to avoid people sending in mass applications, Shige reminds everyone that “[the candidates’] lives depend on this” and therefore should not be made as difficult as humanly possible.
He also argues strongly on behalf of people who won’t be hired because of their social network profiles, saying that contents from the past are from the past and that people change.
All in all, Shige did a fantastic job and this NEWS na Futari episode was really interesting because of the strong stance he took. It made the show so much more bearable despite the quite frequent sexist BS some of the guests spread (this time: a guest commenting on “false advertisement” when women have their photos shopped).
So, yay Shige! That’s what I’d like NEWS na futari to be! You go!
