"We can talk about juice all night, if you want. Pressed juice is now the thing, apparently. Like if you press it rather than, you know, blend it. It’s a different method that squeezes it, so it retains more nutrients. Apparently."

I don’t know why this quote hit me as hard as it did—and it still affects me today. I guess I’m just impressed that the writers could kinda put something this deep in the show. Everybody gets angry, but… I feel like most of the time we take our regrets and fears out on other people, all the while blaming it on other people and events. Zuko hit the nail on the head when he realized that, even though he thought he was angry at his father, or Azula, or Team Avatar, he was really mad at himself for all the things the did and didn’t do, including lying about the Avatar’s death and his betrayal concerning Uncle Iroh.

The thing about ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine,’ it was written in five minutes. It was one of those songs, only three chords. You know that guitar lick Slash does at the beginning? It was kinda like a joke because we thought, ‘What is this song? It’s gonna be nothing, it’ll be filler on the record.’ And except that vocal-wise, it’s very sweet and sincere, Slash was just fuckin’ around when he first wrote that lick.

little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear +

“I’m not here with you because I don’t have other options. You understand? This is not something I’m taking lightly, it’s not a jaunt through the park for me.”

Kelly licked his lips, trying to swallow. His mouth was too dry. 

“Doc. There is no ‘something else’ for me. There’s no second option. It’s you. It’s just you.” 

Nick rested on his elbow so he could glide a finger across Kelly’s cheek. It brought their faces closer together. Kelly lifted his head and kissed him, almost exploratory, tentative and gentle. Nick returned it with the same tender attention, holding Kelly’s chin between his thumb and forefinger.

Sometimes, the key to being happy is just to simply decide you want to be.

I’ll just link to all the videos that aren’t gameplays. That should help.

Ok so what I’m kinda getting from that episode wasn’t really romantic vibes more like greg and amethyst probably use to mess around. Let’s take some quotes from this episode shall we.

Amethyst: I use to have someone who was there for me until she met you.

"I’d bet you’d stay if I was her!

Greg: I can’t do this with you not again, I just want to be friends!

You guys don’t think after rose “passed” that amethyst would shapeshift in to Rose and her and greg would… 😳


It’s kinda upsetting to know how beautiful Kim Kardashian already was, yet she made her choice to go under the knife and become all silicon & plastic. Her face just isn’t the same, she doesn’t even look Armenian anymore. No offense, I mean it’s her life. Her body. Not my life. It’s just that looking at these photos makes you think how screwed up the fame world is for most people, and how the idea of “beauty” really needs to change already, we should stop idolizing things like plastic surgery and instead we should remind one another how amazing everyone already is, unless it is truly your decision well hey go for it, do what makes you happy, but she was so gorgeous, although she still is…she was more herself. I also feel like plastic surgery ages a person more. I just hope people like her are really happy with intense choices like this.

Hey, so not to be mean or anything, I sometimes can't understand why "abuse survivors" can't do certain things, or why they seem to have such a hard time. Like your Helena girl that keeps showing up every now and then, I keep thinking that she should kinda get over herself because what she's apparently doing rn isn't recovery, it's just going back into her shell and it's not gonna do her any good. Like, maybe some sort of confrontation would work better, even if it isn't that gentle for her.

I understand that you’re not intending to be offensive, but I need you to understand that when you tell me “why can’t she get over herself”, what I hear from you is “why can’t she walk on broken legs”. You sound like you are telling me is “why can’t people with PTSD do certain things”, “I don’t understand why paraplegics have such a hard time”. You have a fundamental misunderstanding of the level of damage that abuse causes a human being.

Please do not put “abuse survivors” in quotes like that, it has the taste of mockery and dismissal. And especially please do not use that in regards to Helena, because I am incredibly protective of her and she has been through absolute hell. The way you refer to what has been done to her, I don’t think you have any concept of the kind of trauma that results in a person. She was literally put in the hospital from her own mother’s beating, she grew up emotionally and mentally malnourished by being degraded and treated like garbage, she suffered back-breaking stress from the responsibility of taking care of and protecting her siblings, as well as the feeling put on her that she was the one at fault for her own abuse. Her life fell apart around her, and you think she should ‘get over herself’? You realize she is fifteen years old and she has been through more trauma than many of us will ever go through in our lives?

I want her to recover as well, but what you’re suggesting is the equivalent of telling someone who’s been hit by a truck to go home because lying in that hospital bed isn’t doing them any good. You can’t just spring back intoshape and get all better when you’ve literally never known emotional health or peace in your life. She has struggled with deep depression and anxiety, she has been abused in almost every way possible, she has been convinced by the people who were supposed to take care of her that she’s a worthless fuckup, and you think she needs a less gentle confrontation to get over herself?

I don’t mean to sound harsh, but you need to learn some compassion and empathy. You need to feel heartbroken for this girl, not impatient or frustrated. You need to want to give her a hug while she cries out her pain, not want to shove her into your ignorant pre-determined notion of what recovery looks like. You need to want to protect her from more abuse, more pain, more suffering, not be another person telling her she’s not doing good enough. You need to want to help her heal, not forcibly “fix” her.

Do not judge an abuse victim or the way they react until you have yourself experienced that same abuse, until you have felt helpless and terrified and worthless. And do not ever tell them to get over themselves or I will have to kick your ass. 

The one where Ballsy just transcribes the Ebbing Quote in full

Host: And you’re sort of I mean kinda congratulations on, your personal life has changed recently 

BC:  Has it? 

KK:  That! 

BC:  Thank you very much 

Host: I’m not gonna, you know a lot has been said about your fans, various names given to them do you feel, does it feel like it may be  is ebbing do you have this same sort of veracity, this following 

BC:  I’m gonna stick around for a bit I’m afraid, I hate to tell you.  I’ve always thought of my career as something that I want to be doing carrying on into my dotage until I can’t remember the lines anymore or can’t move.  And you know I’ve been surrounded by people who have done that in my life of all ages. One of the great things about our profession is that you work with people of every age, the very young and the very old, and that’s inspiring to me.  I’m not interested in being a man of the moment I’m interested in longevity, I’m interested in striving to you know, shed light on stories through the whole age of men and women and I, ah, yeah.  So, ebbing?  Who cares?  I don’t know, I don’t keep a track of it, somebody does somewhere.  But I’ve been very very fortunate with the opportunities I’ve had and I’ve tried to capitalise on that as an actor and that’s what my job is, so I’m going to carry on doing that as much as I can.

[Tim Flannery] said something, it was like… "This game has a way of healing people, man. You just go out there and go play. Just put your uniform on." It’s true. It’s kind of true. That was like the first time I ever felt - I never even told him this - I kinda felt… loved, in baseball. For a minute, I was just a baseball player again.

I don’t know why, but I just have this gut feeling that it’s going to be Daryl who kisses Carol first. Meaning their first proper kiss…

Before seeing that forehead kiss, and after reading Norman interview quotes about Daryl being kinda clueless and all that, I always thought it’d be Carol to make the first move and go in for the kiss.

Yeah, we have the forehead kiss from season 2, but that was awkward and they still didn’t really know each other very well. This was different.

I just feel like this forehead kiss was ‘the move’. I know she was being comforting and reassuring, but it still feels like there was more to it.

Daryl didn’t so much as flinch, and furthermore he actually leaned into it.

I feel like this was the move that has made him realize, and this is the move that is going to make him crack and go in for the real first kiss.

I could be so wrong, or I could be so right… Either way this is how I feel right now, and I’m so excited to see where this season goes.

and they’re screaming you’re okay don’t be scared you’ll be fine
but really they don’t know what’s spinning in this head of mine
years spent on walls that i thought were thick enough to keep me safe are shattered in a second from just a single word
but somewhere along the broken pieces is his smile
no it didn’t help me build these walls back up so i could feel safe
in fact it did the opposite
his smile tore down every small piece of security i still had
and it left me open and more vulnerable then i’d ever like to be
but god damn i’d never seen his face so clearly or the way he laughs at stupid things or how peaceful he looks when he’s sleeping
and it helped me see that his smile that broke down my protection really wasn’t around as much as it should be
so i vowed myself to give up on these walls and use all of my strength to not give him a reason to build up his own
because if i could drown myself in his smile
i think i’d finally find my home.
