Spotlight (2015), dir. Tom McCarthy

“It’s time, Robby. It’s time. They knew and they let it happen. To kids! Okay? It could’ve been you. It could’ve been me. It could have been any of us! We gotta nail these scumbags. We gotta show people that nobody can get away with this! Not a Priest or a Cardinal or a freaking Pope!

to everybody who works "behind the scenes"

thank you for setting up what needs to be set up for us to experience the unique and unforgettable shows that we do. thank you for transporting everything and everyone needed from one place to another so we can enjoy the amazing music live. thank you for looking out for tyler, josh, and the audience and keeping them and us safe. thank you for capturing such exhilarating but fleeting moments in time and for recording and sharing our ups and downs and our stories of struggle and success. thank you for continually creating these emotional and physical spaces in which every fan is able to celebrate good music, themselves, and the people they surround themselves with.

So this study found that movement/fidgeting in ADHD helps people w/ ADHD focus on what they’re doing, and leads to better performance on working memory tasks. This obviously is relevant to autism too.

For a lot of us, this isn’t new or surprising information. It’s consistent with our own experiences. But it’s great to finally have some concrete, empirical evidence to back this up.

Anyways, if anybody tells you to stop fidgeting or doodling or tries to quiet hands you, you can hit them with Sarver et al. (2015). They probably won’t listen to you anyways, because people are assholes and prioritize our conformity over our well-being, but it’s worth a shot.

anonymous asked:

Do you have canon heights for everyone?

I do! I’m not going to give the exact heights - instead I’ll keep the mystery alive about how many inches are between each character. But here they are from tallest to shortest:

  • Caleb
  • Agent Green 
  • Mark/Frank (same height) 
  • Sarah
  • Damien
  • Chloe
  • Adam
  • Dr. Bright/Sam

The Boy Who Turned Yellow | Michael Powell | 1972

The Boy Who Turned Yellow was the last gasp collaboration between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Made for the UK’s Children’s Film Foundation it’s pretty inconsequential and kind of disappointing when compared to their earlier glories, but interesting because, hey, it’s still Powell and Pressburger, and as a bit of early 70s British Sci-Fi silliness.
