Law & Order: SVU - Deleted Scene: Carisi Betrayed (Digital Exclusive)

Ummmmmmmmmm …. 

OK guys. This is the official description from the NBC YT channel: "Carisi confronts his girlfriend about using him as a source for a controversial story.”

Every network (broadcast or cable) should listen to fan outcry and change one cancellation each season in order to give themselves good publicity.

Have a vote for all the bubble shows on the network before making cancellations. Make it into a reality competition series if you must. Do whatever it takes to save one well beloved show. (I don’t even care if the real reason is for money and not fans. Go ahead and lie to me that it is about fans so long as I get to keep my shows.)

Thank you, NBC, for whatever reason you gave Timeless a second chance.

when fandoms collide: a various collection of parallels

Pineapples

  1. Psych
    In the pilot, James Roday improvised by picking up a pineapple and saying, “Should I slice this up for the road?"  There has been a pineapple, or a picture/symbol of one, in very nearly every single episode of Psych since.  It’s on a lot of merchandise, and is even kind of a logo for the show.  Once Shawn tried to make a pineapple upside-down cake and said, "Are you a fan of delicious flavor?” which is now a phrase associated with the whole pineapple thing.
  2. How I Met Your Mother
    In season 1, Ted wakes up hungover to an unknown girl in his bed, a pineapple on the nightstand, a sprained ankle, and a burnt coat, with no memory of his drunken adventure last night.  All of these strange happenings were explained in the episode, but the pineapple remained a mystery for the rest of the series, even with Ted’s attempt at sleuthing.  Fans are still annoyed it wasn’t answered.
  3. Chuck
    In Chuck vs The Nemesis, Buy More is preparing for the madness of Black Friday shoppers, and the employees learn that they are to use the word “pineapple” in the worst of all situations (otherwise never) to start a storewide emergency evacuation.  On Black Friday, when a bad guy comes in and is forcing Chuck (secret spy/supercomputer) with a gun to walk across the store, an employee comes up to Chuck with a problem with the registers; the bad guy says he’ll kill the employee if Chuck says more than one word to him.  Chuck utters, “Pineapple.” Videos make this easier to picture, haha [1] [2]

anonymous asked:

How should I approach AP government (my school combines us and comp)? I'm taking it this upcoming year, but I have no clue about current events and I don't really have political opinions

Start reading up on current events. Find out the top hot-button political issues, do your research, and form some opinions. This is important not just for the class, but for life in general, so start building good habits now. Nothing screams “I’M A FAILED ADULT” like deliberate ignorance.

Here are some important sources:

  • The New York Times is a classic, from news to opinion to lifestyle to blogs. The print version is always gorgeous as well.
  • Wall Street Journal is THE newspaper for business and keeping on top of the stock market. Build that economic foundation, because it’ll come up in “adult” conversations a lot.
  • Boston Globe is another classic paper, with strong entertainment and lifestyle sections.
  • Los Angeles Times is my home newspaper, so I sort of have to love it, of course. Southern California, represent.
  • NPR. Goddamnit, I will forever defend the importance of public radio. It also makes you sound really cultured when you start a conversation with, “I was listening to a program on NPR and…”
  • The Atlantic has some high-quality long-form pieces. (Great for building SAT vocab too, by the way.) A great way to see current events through an opinionated lens.
  • Slate is always interesting to read. A little clickbait-y, but you’ll never be bored, so it’s a good stepping stone for beginning news readers.
  • Reuters, on the other hand, is as dry as it gets. Great for getting your facts straight, but not so great for keeping yourself entertained.
  • TIME always, always has fascinating cultural and sociological articles. The photography is on point and the print design is cleanly minimalist.
  • Al Jazeera is an arabic news network with strong US reporting. It’s always good to keep a few foreign newspapers on your list so that you can avoid US bias.
  • I is a branch of the UK’s Independent, widely regarded to be an easy-to-read yet still accurate source. Again, foreign newspapers for the win.
  • Salon is full of liberal opinions, so of course I dig it.

Sources to avoid:

  • FOX News is trash. As someone with liberal leanings, I could be biased, but even most intelligent conservatives agree that FOX News is trash.
  • CNN/ABC/NBC and other TV channel networks can sometimes be heavily sensationalized. This is especially true for local branches of TV networks, which report things like toast burnt in the shape of a celebrity or other insignificant shit like that. It’s great to be caught up on local news, but keep an eye on the big picture.
