The flickering of pages through his fingers, like leaves
dancing across the paved roads, fed the ever present smile on Alistair’s face. He’d
always loved the way the paper felt beneath his hands. So different from
others. So much more precious. He released a soft sigh as he closed the book
and set it on the shelf along with its brothers in the rent section of his new
little store. The already small space was cramped with shelves upon shelves
stuffed to the brim with both new and old books. Of course Alistair had the “money
makers” set on display up front, it was a business after all, but his favorites
he set up in the back for read and rent. It had taken him a long time and
several different jobs to raise the money for this place but he could think of
nothing better to do with his time.
He could have opened up a place back in San Francisco, sure,
but the hustle and bustle of the city wasn’t for him. Besides, smaller towns
like Beacon Hills had better stories to tell. More interesting people who did
more living than running from one trend to the next. Plus the trees. The air
was filled with the smell of them. Alistair breathed it in deep as he opened
the door to turn his “Closed” sign over to the “Open” side, complete with a
little shiny sticker that said “Grand” on it. Just a little store on the corner
of some street he couldn’t remember the name of, tucked away between a coffee
shop and a store he never bothered to look into.
Alistair took his place behind his counter, hands wrapped
around a mug of hot tea. The steam billowed from the top in the cold air, and
it was simply something he couldn’t bring himself to be mad about, instead
smiling broadly as he sipped away.
a lot of people talk about how they want dgs localized but if it were localized then a lot of people would play it and then realize how much of it is actually about the main character(s) dealing with rampant racism and white supremacy in the courtroom and then be uncomfortable with it and probably not praise the game as much
A few days ago, Kevin Pillar, a center fielder for the Blue Jays, directed a homophobic slur towards pitcher Jason Motte. The next day, the Blue Jays organization suspended Pillar for two games—without pay. His pay, along with an undisclosed fine, was donated to an LGBTQ+ organization. Both Pillar and the Blue Jays released public apologies, and Pillar reached out to Motte personally to apologize. The MLB is also investigating the incident.
The other day, Getzlaf used a homophobic slur in a playoff game. He was fined $10k. The money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. Getzlaf won’t address the fine and the incident until after Saturday’s game.
This is, frankly, a game he shouldn’t even be playing. What the Blue Jays and the MLB did with Pillar is the BARE MINIMUM for a sports league that truly hopes to become an inclusive league.
Ryan Getzlaf is the captain of the Ducks. He wore Pride Tape on his stick during Pride Night. He is also a nominee for the Messier Leadership Award. He needs to be made an example of.
If the NHL wants this stuff out of the league, they need to dish out REAL penalties. That means playoff suspensions.
Okay so Spock was born and raised on Vulcan, a planet that canonically has a higher gravity than Earth. At least partially due to this, Vulcans have much denser bone and muscles than humans (part of why they are so much stronger than us) meaning that per m^3 Vulcans weigh more than the average human. Considering Spock, the beanpole that he is, has been stated to have the strength of 3 average men it is logical to deduce that his muscle mass is up to 3 times as dense as that of the average human meaning it is up to 3 times as heavy (I’m not a physician so don’t quote me on this). All this considered, no matter the math, Spock is heavy af, so
bazluhrmann: The inspiration for the scene between the fish-tank came when Craig and I were so desperately looking for a solution as to how to surprise the audience for the first connective moment between Romeo and Juliet. I was younger then and we might have gone out to clubs a bit more. That night after working all day we squirreled out to a place (if I recall correctly called “The Dome”) in Miami. When I came out of the bathroom to wash my hands I looked up and saw a woman combing her hair with a brush through a fish-tank. It was a brilliant device to get guys and girls to connect through the sitting rooms, while protecting each room’s privacy. Obviously you can see where this moment lead … #romeoandjuliet
Tbh even if you don’t like bts or their fandom, I think we should be proud of them as a genre for even getting into the BBMA’s. Bts have done great things and I think the kpop fandom (again, even if you’re not really fond of them) should be proud because kpop/being in a music genre that started with Asians is finally being taken seriously in a western culture/society. I’m very proud of these boys and I think we owe bts a big thank you for working so hard and achieving such a great thing!
