now post yours

my favorite thing about the spanish harry potter translation is that instead of calling voldemort “the dark lord,” they call him señor tenebroso, which basically means “mr. spooky”

Adverbs aren’t evil; said isn’t dead
Please stop hitting the wall with your head

Active is grand but not always the best
Sometimes it’s passive that passes the test

Some write with style, others write plain
Let’s all agree that writing’s a pain

The ‘rules’ can be broken, twisted, or bent
All that matters is that you are content

Make your own story and write your own way
This has been a writer’s PSA

john mulaney and pancakes

ok SO john mulaney has a new live show on the netflicks (the comeback kid) and i was lucky enough to see him do this act live in milwaukee this summer!!! but the recorded show is missing something special

so summer in milwaukee is known for being like. comically humid. disgustingly, oppressively humid. ‘can’t tell the difference between being downtown and being literally submerged in lake michigan’ humid

and poor john mulaney was wearing a nice-looking but also very warm suit. so once about every 10-20 minutes he would pause whatever spiel he was on, wipe his forehead, flutter his jacket about, regret his fashion choices and ask what was wrong with us that we don’t properly air condition our venues

about halfway through the show, a woman in one of the front rows stood up and started to walk out so in classic mulaney fashion he razzed her that she couldn’t take the heat either and asked her to bring him a pepsi - she didn’t break stride (i would try to play it cool too if over a thousand people were suddenly watching me get razzed by mulaney)

as soon as she was out of the theatre, he turned his mic off and started yelling to those of us who were still in there

okay guys, we’re going to play a little prank on her! can everyone hear me? WE’RE GOING TO PLAY A PRANK! at some point later in the show i’m going to say ‘you know what they say in milwaukee!!’ and you’re all going to wave your arm around like this’ - he jauntily waved his arm with his first finger outstretched, like an 80 year old man doing the charleston - ‘and you will all shout ‘gimme some PANcakes!!!’’

we did a few rehearsals of this until he was satisfied, and he turned his mic back on and continued with his act

a few minutes later the woman walked back through the theatre but passed her row, walked all the way up to the stage, and set a can of pepsi at mulaney’s feet. he stopped, mouth agape for a moment and touched his chest. ‘is this really for me?’ he asked. ‘did i ask you for pepsi? i have no idea why i would do that, i hate pepsi.’ he thanked her sincerely several times, and when she turned his back to him to return to her seat, he made frantic ‘kill’ motions across his throat to signal to us that the prank was off

he continued to lament the heat for the rest of his act, eventually lost the jacket and drank the gifted pepsi, grimacing cartoonishly every time. at the very end of the night he thanked us for being a great audience, thanked the woman in particular for her kindness, and triumphantly said ‘BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY IN MILWAUKEE!!!’ and 1 very generous women was hopelessly confused when 1299 people shouted ‘GIMME SOME PANCAKES!!!!!’

I told you, Bill. I fucking told you, I don’t want to die. It’s your fault. You punched me in the face, you made me walk through shitty water, you brough me to a fucking crackhead house, and now… I’m gonna have to kill this fucking clown.

the part with the master sword in botw is a nice marriage of story and game mechanics and everything but I have a very specific interpretation of the scene

C-C-C-C’MON, C-C-C-C’MON, LET’S GO!

  • Clint: this is my fun floating water base, I'm going to make a nice pirate reference and call it the Jolly Roger
  • His Awful Sons: no old man, it's called the 'Burg!

it’s ok Mark, you can get emotional, it’s your last high-school year after all

Here’s a thought

*This post has spoilers from Zelda botw, the divine beasts.*

So I was doing the boss battle for Divine beast Naboris (the Thunderblight) and I noticed that this was the only Blight I couldn’t beat by just stuffing them with arrows. In fact arrows were completely useless against them. 

That got me thinking. 

Wouldn’t a Blight with this fighting style be better against Revali, who’s primary weapon is a bow, instead of Urbosa? It seemed like an odd choice on Gannon’s part. Then I realised, the Tunderblight fights with a short sword and shield, which is the exact weapons that Urbosa fought with and that you get given after defeating the divine beast. Then I realised, it’s the exact same for every other divine beast. 

Mipha excels at fighting with a spear, the Waterblight also fights with a spear.

 Daruk fights with a heavy weapon, which for Link to carry requires two hands but I’m pretty sure Daruk could handle with one. 

Which would again match the Fireblight’s weapon.

Revali fights with a bow and the Windblight’s main weapon also fire’s projectiles at you. Heck it even copies Revali’s Gale in creating it’s own tornadoes. 

Even the Thunderblight can summon lighting just like Ubosa’s fury. Along with the same weapons as I mentioned before.

Gannon’s not fighting fire with water. He’s fighting fire with fire. He’s copied the four champions and created better versions of them. Better versions that could defeat them in their acclaimed strongest skill. The skill that supposedly no one else could beat them in.

He’s humiliating them. 

Revali is no longer the best bowman “even among the Rito”. Mipha’s spearmanship “in a class all its own” has met it’s match. And because the champions lacked the diversity of using a range of different weapons they couldn’t counter the overwhelming strength with a different style. It’s almost as if Gannon is teaching them a lesson. Not to be too overconfident in their own skill. After all “Jack of all trades, master of none, but is oftentimes better than master of one.” Which Is why you (Link) have a much better chance at defeating them.

So does that shed new light on Gannon’s character? 

You probably new at least half of this already. Anyway thanks for reading if you made it to the end.

Yuzuru Hanyu x 2016-2017 Season x (Possible) Tumblr Tags

Bonus material, or, I’m out of tags so y’all can add your own:

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the thought of Harry and Draco back at Hogwarts years after they leave? If not, let me take a few moments of your time to elucidate:

  • Banter
  • Inter-house rivalry at the head table
    • inter-house rivalry between classes
  • Knowing (memorizing) each other’s schedule and casually bringing it up in conversation–with or outside of each other
  • Seeming like a married couple to everyone else but not realizing it themselves
  • Intense quidditch debates in the staff room
    • students like to hang around outside because they’re always loud and always hilarious (and sometimes often result in creative new insults to add to their repertoire)
  • Grading together in one of their quarters and snarking over ridiculous student answers
  • Quibbling over teaching methods to the point of pedantry just to be annoying to the other
  • Trying the “I’ve never been more shocked by student behaviour in my life” approach on students who misbehave, none of whom believe it because they’ve heard stories of Harry and Draco’s time at Hogwarts (usually by the other in classes, ex. Draco climbing a tree because he wanted Harry’s attention)
  • Patrolling the hallways over Christmas hols
    • “Here. This is the statue Flitwick said he’s caught kids fooling around behind. Go check it out.”
    • “Why do I have to go?”
    • “What are you, scared?”
    • “… Fine, you absolute tosser. …Woah, Malfoy, come check this out.”
    • “What? What is it?”
    • “Just get back here and you’ll see.”
    • “I’m not going to fall for your tricks, Potter. I’m not going back there.”
    • “Malfoy….”
    • Fine.”
      • They end up necking behind the statue like students
      • It becomes a repeat occurrence
