No trip to NYC is complete without visiting 30secondstomars’s Hurricane video locations 😜

my pics w/ a side by side comparison

Has anyone talked yet about how nearly every original location in My Hero Academia is named in reference to Star Wars

From Deku and Bakugou’s hometown, Musutafu (Mustafar), through their former school Orudera Junior High (Alderaan), Hosu Ward in Tokyo (Hoth), Kamino Ward in Yokohama (Kamino), even minor things like Shinsou’s old middle school (Naboo) and the municipal park All Might gets Deku to clean up (Dagobah)

Hirokoshi is a humongous nerd and I love him

Erskine House

Since a lot of people were surprised to find out that the white house Harry bought in 2012 is named Erskine and has a lot of history, I decided to make this quick post. This post is for people who are interested in history (and gardening/architecture lmao), I guess. It really has nothing to do with Harry, except for the fact that he currently owns this house.


Erskine House was home to Lord Erskine (Thomas Erskine), a very successful lawyer, who garnered a lot of fame after working with Queen Caroline at her divorce hearing in 1820.


Erskine was a Whig, who in the 1790s led a campaign to prevent a radical reform movement.
Erskine was made Lord Chancellor in 1806.

“The ugly stuccoed house next door to the Spaniards Tavern, with a long porch, bears the name of Erskine House, it having been for some years the residence of Thomas Lord Erskine, the Lord Chancellor(…) Lord Eskine took this house, which he enlarged in 1788, some year before his elevation to the woolsack, and here he remained until 1823, beguiling the leisure which his dismissal from office forced upon him by planting trees and hedges, and laying out his grounds. Under the Spaniards Road was a tunnel connecting the house with that part of the grounds which lay on the Highgate side of the road, but after he had left and resigned his copyhold to Lord Mansfield (sidenote: a neighbor) the passage was filled up.” (London Town Past and Present, Volume 2 by W.W. Hutchings, Ford Madox Ford)  

“The large but plain white house adjoining the Spaniards is celebrated for having been the residence of Lord Erskine, who has been pronounced by other distinguished lawyers the greatest forensic orator that England has ever produced. It is surrounded by high walls that shut out the view of its grounds from the sight of curious, and the chief characteristic about its appearance is the long portico leading into it from the road. When Lord Erskine came to live here the house was not of much importance, but it had extensive grounds and commanded a fine view of the picturesque surroundings. He at once set about improving it, and having planted it with evergreens of different descriptions, he gave it the name of Evergreen Hill. He is also said to have planted with his own hand the extraordinarily broad holly hedge separating his kitchen-garden from the heath, opposite to the Fir-Tree Avenue. (…) The greater part of the leisure time of this legal light was spent in his garden, which was on the opposite side of the road, and connected with the house by a subterranean passage.” (Municipal Parks, Gardens, and Open Spaces of London by John James Sexby)

Also apparently one of Lord Erskine’s neighbors was “Parry, the Arctic explorer,” which is pretty cool. 

Thanks to mabelinsweatertown for beta’ing. :)

If he had to be honest with himself, Stiles would admit that he wasn’t the most generous person in the world. He had his moments, sure, but unprompted altruism was more Scott’s department, not his. Which is why he couldn’t blame Scott for expressing a certain amount of skepticism at his suggestion.

“Are you sure?” Scott asked as he hurled the lacrosse ball back at Stiles, who caught it in his stick’s net without too much visible effort. He squinted against the bright midday sun and found himself idly wondering why their university’s quad didn’t have more trees. Shade would be good. Hence the main reason for Stiles’s generosity. Or maybe it was the secondary reason? Definitely not a tertiary reason.

“Dude, it’s like, what? Four bucks? I can totally swing that.” Stiles tossed the ball to Scott and absolutely did not notice how great Scott’s arms looked when he flexed to catch the ball. “Let’s just go before the lunch crowd gets there.”

Scott twirled his lacrosse stick as he thought. After awhile, he smiled, and Stiles swore his heart didn’t skip a beat. Because it didn’t.

“Okay. I want strawberry. On a waffle cone.” Scott said.

Yeah, Stiles was pretty sure Scott was the main reason he wanted ice cream.

@drstanakatic: For my 2nd-to-last day of #EMATakeover , I’d like to chat about municipal parks. What a gift!!! Here’s a shot of two sweet French fanzies & some random goober photo bombing the background. Took this on my hike today through Griffith Park, a gem of a place in Los Angeles.
