magnatism

Playing catch-up on a couple films I saw recently but for whatever reason I didn’t share my thoughts on…the first film is JASON BOURNE…to keep it simple and quick this film has a pretty badass opening/1st act which is the riot in Greece you see in the trailers. The way it’s shot, the beats it hits and the action is all top-notch. The film then goes into a second act of a wholly predictable and boring affair with Jason trying to figure out new information about his father (because why not?) while there’s a subplot about a social media magnate and the government wanting to use it to spy on the people (I like that plot in-and-of itself but it feels so out of place in this film). The film then enters it’s 3rd act which is in Vegas and is that Dodge Charger/SWAT van chase you’ve seen all over the trailers which is insanely badass…like seriously it’s one amazingly shot, edited and choreographed car chase on the Vegas Strip…it’s crazy impressive and worth the price of admission alone.

Matt Damon is good, albeit he does nothing new or anything you haven’t seen from him before. It was great having Julia Stiles back (just not enough of her). You get new additions like Tommy Lee Jones (who’s entirely in the film…which is nice…but again he doesn’t really do much or at least it’s all things you KNOW he’s going to do), Alicia Vikander (who sadly did nothing for me here and in no way convinces me she can carry an action franchise like Tomb Raider), Vincent Cassel (who’s the new CIA operative hunting Bourne…does as good a job as any of the others) and Riz Ahmed (who’s the Social Media magnate and does that well, dude is incredible in The Night Of though which is something you all need in your life).

Paul Greengrass once again directed the shit out of this and the finale is genuinely one of the more thrilling ones I’ve witnessed in quite awhile…just after 9 years off you want/expect and wish there was more here. For what you get it’s certainly entertaining and watchable but it’s all too predictable and at times becomes boring because of it. This is a good placeholder and reminder of this character, I just hope that if they do continue to do more Jason Bourne stories they spend some more time on it and come up with something a bit fresher than what they brought here.

Magnetosphere by Lefteris Tsampikakis (via May The Force Be With You | Yanko Design)

As silly as it may sound, magnets make things seem magical. You can know all about magnetism, but when you see a clean design that just work, just snaps shut, just hovers, or just stays attached there’s a part of you the still goes “wow.” Even if only for a second, you cynics. Magnetosphere is a fully adjustable desk lamp that is magnetically mounted to its spherical bade. I’ve recently been really interested in the use of wood contrasted by more industrial materials. Especially on contact points in as a way to add warmth and wear to a design. While I often heard magnets used as a shallow solution to a design problem at university, this is a novel and clever use of it’s forces.

This handsome youth is Imre Thököly, (in Hungarian: Thököly Imre.) A Hungarian Patriot, leader of an anti-Habsburg uprising, Prince of Transylvania.

Let me tell you about him:

He lost both parents while still a child. His father was executed for having had a role in the Hungarian magnates’ conspiracy against the Habsburgs.
Imre Thököly`s war against the house of Habsburg began in 1679, Upper Hungary (now Slovakia) was soon in his possession. and forced Leopold I. to restore Hungarian liberties. In 1690 Thököly was elected prince of Transylvania. He fought heroically, but couldn`t maintain his position against the Habsburg Armies. He was sent into exile, and after one more unsuccessful attempt to recover the principality, he settled down in Turkey with his wife.

His wife, Ilona Zrínyi, was a beautiful, and very brave woman, who was 14 years older than him, and very much in love with Imre. (who could blame her for this ;-) Their marriage was a sensation, the wedding of the century although was a bit schocking because of the age-gape. A Hungarian poet even wrote a lovely poem with 87 strophe about it. Ilona helped her husband in everything, and alone defended the castle of Munkács for three years. Ilona had two children from her first marriage; a girl, and a boy, who later will be the leader of a great anti-Habsburg uprising in 1703-11. (Rákóczi’s War of Independence). Ferenc Rákóczi (who also was a very handsome man) to put it midly didn`t like his stepfather, but Thököly was quite fond of his stepson, and welcomed his freedom fight.

Fitz at Foxfire

Fitz walked through the doors of Foxfire and into the bottom floor of the crowded pyramid. Magnate- Dean Leto was already giving the morning announcements. For a second it looked as if he stared right at Fitz, smiling slightly, but just as quickly as it happened Leto once again gave his serious and stern face.

Fitz hid in the crowd of white as he awkwardly fixed his snow white cape, which reminded him a bit too much of the Everest event. This year he was a Yeti, the last level before elites. That thought made a tingle of excitment crawl through his veins, and his heart skipped a beat. But with the way the world was, there was a good chance that would never come to be.

A large group of emerald green caught his eye, distracting his thoughts. What would they do if they saw him?

The next few days flew by. Fitz took the Elite Levels test they gave at the beginning of the year, and felt very confident. He hoped his stent in Exillium wouldn’t affect it, but he didn’t regret his decision for a second. They got to meet Tam and Linh after all.

He spent his lunches in the library, hiding out from those who might know him, and catching up on the material he missed before.

Unfortunately with the name Vacker AND a trip to Exillium, it wasn’t long till the school knew he was back. So far only Keefe knew, but he had a month of detention so they often missed eachother. Their eyes locked once in the hallway, but he managed to duck out of sight right as a teacher began to drag Keefe to detention. For once he was actually glad he had a record, even if it did mean he always ate lunches alone…

It wasnt until halfway through his second week back that everything began to change. And it all happened when…

@keefe-plus-keefe-equals-awesome, @tam-the-shade, @linh-the-cinnamon-roll, @sophie-human-girl-foster, @bianathekeeper, @dextexts

Our Head Master, and A Leader of The Black Swan.

He goes by many names. Sir Astin, Mr. Forkle, Magnate, now Dean, Leto, and at once in his life, Loki. @mrforkle

Born on June 25, 2020 (261 years old) to a wealthy Nevada tool magnate, Robert Edwin House was orphaned at an early age when his parents died in a freak accident involving an autogyro and a lightning strike. Cheated out of his inheritance by his half-brother, Anthony, he nevertheless attended the Commonwealth Institute of Technology, and later went on to found RobCo Industries in his hometown of Las Vegas at the age of 22. 

I am having feelings about Mr House

Hey, are you okay? Did someone use a Confundus charm on you?

anonymous asked:

What's funny is that Hops is one of the few people who actually did her job against Sweden. Like her standard is so high that even great performances, like against France, aren't really rated but fuck-ups are over magnated.

I know!! If it weren’t for Hope we may not have even advanced to be quite honest. Hell, we may not have even qualified for Rio in the first place. And she saved a PENALTY KICK and literally no one is talking about that
