“She said to me, ‘I must touch you as you’ve been in the same room as The Beatles’.”

[David Magnus, on the effects of Beatlemania]

More ‘unseen’ photos taken by David Magnus from ‘The Beatles Unseen: Photographs by David Magnus’ exhibition at Proud Chelsea next month (though, I’m sure you will have seen some of these!). These photos were taken on the 24th and 25th June, 1967, during the rehearsals and recording of the BBC’s ‘Our World’. programme. 

The exhibition starts 16th March 2017 and runs until 14th May 2017. 

I think the top photo of George and John is my new favourite picture of them!

Pics: David Magnus.

thank you for these recs!!!

the right kind of love

summary: It starts during their first fuck after “The Incident” as Magnus was calling it now. Alec had been hovering over him, effectively turning Magnus’ brain into mush when it happened. It wasn’t the sentence that Alec uttered out in the midst of the heat, but the way he looked at Magnus.Like he was something invaluable.Something worth saving.It scares Magnus because Alec looked like he sincerely meant that. And even more he fears that he might actually believe it himself.

addicted to you

summary: Magnus Bane’s the head of his own company. Alec Lightwood is in his last year of law school. They’ve never met but have one thing in common: neither does relationships. Just one night stands. That is until they find themselves matched on a hookup app and suddenly one night is not enough.Also known as the one where Magnus and Alec meet and think they can have no strings attached sex and not develop feelings.


Cool video about the Magnus Effect and how some modern tech uses it.


This kicked ball curves like you’ve never seen a ball curve. Can science (or David Beckham) possibly explain this? Awesome video from Physics Girl, featuring @fuckyeahfluiddynamics!

- Magnus sees Simon as a lost vampire which reminds him of a certain someone
- Magnus guides Simon through his transition into a downworlder along with more newly turned downworlders. He’s a father figure to them.
- Episode 3 is heavily Jalec centric and focuses a lot on their parabatai bond
- There will be Malec this season ;-)
- Clary and Alec go on missions together and he teaches her to become a better shadowhunter
- Something dire happens between/to Clary and Alec early on in the season that tears them apart and eventually brings them closer and they bond over it.
- there’s a scene in Season 2A where all the heads of the downworld get together and you have the warlocks and the werewolves and the vampire and the seelies in this meeting of “What are we going to do?” 

- Simon learns about Magnus when he goes to ask him for help and starts seeing him more as human being than a warlock
- We will see many of Magnus’s past lovers or they will be discussed
- Alec isn’t so much giving advice and help as that he is in need of it himself
- Alec and Magnus are given the time this season to get to know each other and deal with the difference between them as well as explore the mutual attraction.

- Alec is 23 years old and has never been in a relationship
- The shadowhunters are really existed about Malec, because it;s such a complex relationship even without it being two men and they strive to create relationships that are interesting in spite of the genders involved.
- Simon and Magnus have a great storyline in Episode 2.
- Simon and Magnus bond over being immortal

will continue to add to the list if more things are revealed in the upcoming interviews. Let me know if I already missed something :-)

edited version, the new things are in italics


A good soccer player can kick the ball from the corner of the field into the goal thanks to the Magnus effect. But if you’ve ever tried to play soccer with a smooth ball, you may have noticed that sometimes the ball bends the wrong way! This is the reverse Magnus effect and it’s caused when the boundary layers on either side of the ball switch from turbulent to laminar flow at different times. Dianna Cowern explains (with a little help from yours truly) in the video above. Want to learn more about how roughness affects boundary layers? Check out our companion video on FYFD’s YouTube channel. (Video credit: D. Cowern/Physics Girl)

okay but I can just imagine magnus walking around for the whole of october with cat ears on because it’s halloween.
