incredible genius

You know what makes Rogue One so incredibly genius? The simplicity. It seems like a fault at the beginning, something just doesn’t feel right: the characters don’t seem like protagonists, the story doesn’t seem that important, everything feels like a side story that no one ever knew… and then you realize that that’s exactly what it is, its not supposed to be a big flashy story with your typical heroes, its a story about a bunch of nobodies who did a very small part of the rebellion, but without them nothing would’ve happened.
Nobody gave them recognition, nobody even cared, but they saved countless lives and died with no fame or recognition. Just like it happens in real life.

u kno what kind of swords deserve more love?

fuckin…. those toy foam ones, the ones that flash and make sword noises when you hit something with them. incredible, genius, i have 200

Analemma Tower Hanging From An Asteroid In Space

In the words of the architects Clouds Architecture Office:

Analemma inverts the traditional diagram of an earth-based foundation, instead depending on a space-based supporting foundation from which the tower is suspended. This system is referred to as the Universal Orbital Support System (UOSS). By placing a large asteroid into orbit over earth, a high strength cable can be lowered towards the surface of earth from which a super tall tower can be suspended. Since this new tower typology is suspended in the air, it can be constructed anywhere in the world and transported to its final location. The proposal calls for Analemma to be constructed over Dubai, which has proven to be a specialist in tall building construction at one fifth the cost of New York City construction.

Posting just to read some reactions: incredibly stupid or visionary genius?

Thanks for the feedback @sirlagsalotzzz & @abraca-awesome!

Hacker Alert!

Bum da da daaaah! 

Defender of Justice 707 has arrived! Using his incredible skills and genius, he has hacked into this blog lololol! ActuallyIdidntneedtohackanythingbutthatsnotimportant.  Along with my trusted sidekick ‘Game boy’, we work together to defeat the days’ boredom by posting random stuff like this:

Ahem! Aren’t our selfies way cooler than Zen’s? #brocrossplay #stylin #nofilter #better than Zen #blur free

On a side note, I created an awesome info page for our new admin members here.  Seeing as I’m too busy to manage this blog for the RFA, feel free to bother the overworked admins with any troubles or concerns you have. 

                                                           !!!!!!

Abort mission!! My Vanderwood senses are tingling! He’s about to come back to make sure I’m working! See ya!

p.s I think Yoosung would like another sidekick name. Any suggestions? 

ON HOW TO TEACH RAP

Casal: [It’s] the joy of vocal warmups with Busta Rhymes shit, to learn how your tongue is supposed to move. It’s not that he can just say anything fast, he chooses words that have the right alliterations, so that he can do that. And that’s the art of it, is picking the words specifically that take your tongue from the top of your your mouth to the bottom of your mouth and the next word takes it back to the top, so you can do these fast cadences.

Diggs: There are technical aspects that are skill sets that you can learn. You can learn how to talk faster, how to listen closely rhythmically, how to enunciate better and get words out that both maintain tempo and cadence and convey emotion. The hardest thing to teach is the swag—your personal set of biorhythms. For actors, this is something you do for every part. Every part I’ve ever done is a process of figuring out what naturally occurring in myself I can use for that part and what are the things I really need to work on, trying to err more on the side of things that come easy. You don’t want to feel like you’re acting; you want to feel like you’re living. That’s the same thing for rap music.

Read the rest of Genius’s interview with Rafa & Daveed after the Bars Workshop here.

@aliviify brought up an interesting point in response to some people defending Wanda, and putting down Tony.

“I think the problem is that they assume it’s Tony’s job to fix everything.”

  •  I have previously mentioned the nearly impossible to reach expectations Tony and others have set for him. Tony is known for inventing cutting edge technology, things nobody else has even considered making. He’s a genius, and incredible genius inventions are expected from him.

This is the equivalent of the straight A student who never receives any praise for their A’s but is shamed anytime they mess up, or fail to continue to achieve at that level

  • But these high expectations continue with the expectation that Tony will personally fix everything. He’s expected to house the Avengers, and come up with solution’s to complicated situations. He’s expected to fight the nutjob attacking the Stark Expo even though that is not his job. That’s the polices job, or the militaries, not a civilians. 


  • Similarly Tony is held responsible every time something goes wrong, even when other people are involved. (See the entirety of Age of Ultron for details.) I think this stems from the fact that Tony will blame himself for something even if he’s only tangentially related to it. People use that as an excuse to blame him for those things. 


  • There is also the willful ignorance of nearly everyone in his life when it comes to his PTSD. He is expected to be confident, and bombastic, because that’s what he always has been, and when he is anything less than that his friends go blaming him. Pepper blames his decision to be Ironman, Rhodey tells him to pull himself together. 


  • What I’m trying to say is everyone expects Tony to be the Genius Billionare Playboy Philanthropist. When he fails to be any of those things, when he acts like a human, capable of making mistakes. When he creates miracles of science, he isn’t praised. It’s just another achievement for him. It’s not considered a big deal. Even flying through a wormhole to save New York city and nearly dying in the process just seems to be something expected of him. It’s what he should have done, and not overly worthy of praise. 

I think that’s fucked up.

Hey guys, I know a lot of my followers know who this is but with all the hype surrounding The Orbiting Human Circus (of the air) I thought I would make a bit of an appreciation post

This is Julian Koster, though many of you might recognize him as Julian The Janitor, he is the genius behind The Music Tapes and The Orbiting Human Circus. Many indie-rock fans may recognize him as a multi-instrumentalist for various Elephant 6 related bands such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Chocolate USA, and as I mentioned earlier The Music Tapes. He is not only an incredible musician but a genius storyteller. He wrote an amazing story album with The Music Tapes called “2nd Imaginary Symphony for Cloudmaking” (which didn’t get the attention it deserved) and he has toured across the country in a giant circus tent called The Traveling Imaginary and now with the help of the people at Night Vale Presents his genius is being spread to a wider audience. I know many of you are in love with the amazing things that the Night Vale crew has put out (I am in that same boat) but I wanted to take a moment to appreciate how awesome this man is.

ok so i’ve seen a lot of overwatch ship headcanons going around but consider

hanzo/mei

strong, stoic ex-yakuza member hanzo…with an embarrassingly huge crush on adorkable team marshmallow mei-ling zhou

he’s just never met someone as genuinely earnest about everything as she is (he’d almost describe it as ‘cute’, if that was a word he used), not to mention she’s a certified genius and incredibly brave to boot and suddenly he’s missing a lot more shots in target practice than he used to and no one knows why except for genji (”lost in your thoughts, brother?” “shut up”)
