Directory of “Official” Instruments (3rd update, 7th Sept. /16)

I figured that since we have one for “official” composers (kindly compiled by the wonderful @dotted-half-note) then we might as well have one for “official” instruments too… and I also needed a break from all the fingering innuendos, so I made this. If I miss anyone, send me a message!

All those nostalgic feelings we got whenever we see the first ever trailer for Series 1! I remember when this was released and I felt like crying and I was so excited! Hard to believe this was over 2 years ago and we’ve only got a few more weeks until Series 3 airs in the UK!

The 47 biggest problems I have with F4ntastic

I just went to see F4ntastic, and it had so many flaws that I have to get them all down here. Here be spoilers! Ye be warned!

  1. Reed Richards is a boy genius that puts Cartoon Network’s Dexter to shame, and still nobody ever notices it until Doctor Storm sees Reed’s work at a science fair. Not plausible.
  2. When Reed asks Sue if music is, “like, her thing,“ she tells him about the pattern recognition she performs when she listens to music. This is an embarrassingly awkward attempt to show us how scientific she is, and just comes off as a caricature of a scientist.
  3. Victor von Doom is supposed to be in love with Sue, but still he calls her “Susan,” even though she prefers “Sue.”
  4. Victor is only called “Doctor Doom” once. Sarcastically.
  5. The Thing’s classic catchphrase “It’s clobberin’ time!” is first used by his abusive big brother when Ben gets beaten up as a kid. Pretty damn tasteless.
  6. Said brother doesn’t have any real reason to be in this movie.
  7. Despite what Victor tells us, Doctor Storm’s “inspirational” speech about how they need to work together is not actually good. It’s cliché and boring.
  8. Sue Storm seems to be written by the kind of person who thinks that an angry woman automatically is a strong and independent woman. Sadly, she just comes off as sour.
  9. Victor von Doom is basically an emo teen until he turns super-evil.
  10. Sue goes from dislking Reed to liking him way too quickly. One scene she doesn’t like him, the next scene she does.
  11. The people providing Doctor Storm with funding ask him when he’ll be able to create something with practical usefulness. But they’ve already managed to send things into another dimension, and that’s incredibly useful. The idea that getting rid of things has no practical uses unless you can bring them back again is ludicrous.
  12. Nobody ever bothers to call the other dimension “The Negative Zone.” It would have been so easy to work that into the script and get it just that bit closer to the comic book canon.
  13. When Reed tells Victor that their work is done, he doesn’t sound a bit excited. That’s not in-character for a devoted scientist like him.
  14. Reed declines the alcohol he’s offered, saying that it kills brain cells. But in the very next shot, he’s drunk, with no explanation for why he agreed to get drunk. Teetotallers don’t decide to start drinking just like that.
  15. Reed, Ben, Victor and Johnny manage to use their machine to travel to the new dimension, without needing anybody at all to stand by the control panel and handle that part of things. Riiiiight.
  16. Apparently, lab security is so poor that nobody except for Sue notices them taking a secret trip to the new dimension. Malls have better security than that.
  17. Why would a smart guy like Reed Richard decide to take a trip into another dimension just like that, with the obvious security risks? Because the plot says he’s supposed to. There’s no other reason.
  18. After the accident that gives the team their powers, a worker says that their “biological readings are off the charts.” That makes no sense. What readings is he talking about? Blood pressure? Pulse? You have to mention some actual value that you measured.
  19. Johnny Storm calls Victor “Adolf.” Why? European doesn’t equal Nazi, Johnny. The joke doesn’t even make sense.
  20. The tone as a whole is too serious. You can’t use a serious tone in a movie about a human rubber band. Not unless you’re damn skilled. As things stand, Reed’s rubber body just creates a mood-whiplash whenever it shows up.
  21. We never get a proper reveal of The Thing’s superhuman strength. Sure, the way he breaks out of the rock he’s encased in tells us that he’s strong, but the full awe-inspiring tank-fighting extent of his strength deserved a better presentation. Don’t show us people watching a video of him fighting tanks. Show us him fighting tanks, IRL.
  22. Apparently Doom can kill people telekinetically. So why doesn’t he do that to the FF? He gets several chances.
  23. Doctor Storm gave Victor a second chance, and Victor tried to destroy the world. So.. the lesson is that we shouldn’t give people a chance for redemption?
  24. When we first see Sue using a force field to fly, it’s clear that it’s an exhausting process. But when she has to get the FF out of the new dimension after defeating Victor, it doesn’t take any training at all and looks effortless.
  25. Doom turns evil way too quickly. He basically shows up and goes “Hey I’m a supervillain now okay?” He’s basically a villain because the plot requires it.
  26. When an official asks Reed how the landscape in the new dimension has changed, Reed replies that he can’t put it into words, “but it’s different.” Problem is, it’s very easy to say “There used to be lots of glowing green light, and now there isn’t.” Try harder, Reed.
  27. In the end, the movie suddenly decides it wants to be an action flick. It doesn’t work very well.
  28. The Thing shouts “It’s clobbering time!” in the fight against Victor. There’s no reason why he’d want to use a phrase that his brother said beating Ben up.
  29. And we didn’t need an explanation for where Ben got that phrase. A catchphrase doesn’t need an origin.
  30. The government gives the FF their own super-lab for no real reason. (No, “The Thing looks scary” is not a proper reason.)
  31. None of the main characters are punished for helping turn Victor into a monster and almost destroying the world. They don’t get any kind of punishment.
  32. We never get to see Sue discover her ability to create forcefields. All we get is somebody saying “Oh, and she discovered this ability when the audience weren’t looking.”
  33. We don’t get to see Johnny explore his new powers. Just like Sue, we cut to him when he’s already got the hang of how they work.
  34. The FF’s research and recklessness almost destroyed the world, so why are the government giving them a new and better lab, with less supervision? Do they want to increase the chance that the world will end?
  35. Having Doom’s body be combined with his protective suit is a big step downwards from the ingeniously constructed armour he wears in the comics. It’s like if Iron Man didn’t have his suit, and instead he just had a red and yellow T-shirt burned into his skin.
  36. Doctor Storm’s last words just come off as forced and Hallmark-esque.
  37. In the comics, Victor von Doom’s Romani, but in the movie he’s never identified as Romani or even played by a Romani actor.
  38. Remember the part where we see Sue and Johnny grieve their departed father? No? That’s because there wasn’t one.
  39. Ben and Johnny’s fighting, one of the most cherished parts of the franchise, shows up for about eight seconds. That’s right. Eight seconds. Great characterization, guys.
  40. The Thing’s angst over his transformation isn’t explored nearly enough.
  41. Doctor Doom in the comics uses technology to accomplish things and has no superpower. Doctor Doom in the movie doesn’t use technology at all (once he’s a supervillain), instead he just uses his superpowers.
  42. The movie’s pacing is horrible. The vast majority of the runtime is eaten up by the origin story. We did not need another frickin’ origin story. Interesting parts (like the team’s exploration of their abilites) are glossed over, and Doctor Doom barely has time to appear before he’s defeated. In short, any actual superheroing is put aside in favour of a mediocre origin story.
  43. The FF never do anything heroic. (Fighting a monster isn’t heroic if you created it.)
  44. The conflict between the Thing and Reed is horribly written. Reed and Ben are best buddies. Then Ben hates Reed. Then he likes him again, just like that.
  45. They don’t even say the phrase “Fantastic Four” in the movie. Not once. It’s as if the movie makers didn’t even want to be associated with the name.
  46. There’s no Stan Lee cameo. I even checked the end credits to make sure. No cameo.
  47. And no stinger either.

Former Ravens S Ed Reed officially retires from NFL after 12 seasons 

Ed Reed came into the NFL as a member of the Baltimore Ravens, and on Thursday he left as one.

Flanked by head coach John Harbaugh, general manager Ozzie Newsome and team president Dick Cass, the nine-time Pro Bowl safety formally announced his retirement after signing one final contract with the team that drafted him 24th overall in the 2002 draft.

“Home is Baltimore,” said Reed, who will be inducted into the Ravens’ ring of honor Nov. 22 against the St. Louis Rams. “This is home. Baltimore, I love the city. I love this organization. I hope I did more than I was supposed to as a Raven.”

Reed said he’s grateful because few players get a chance to leave the game with their home team.

Reed played 11 seasons in Baltimore before splitting time with Houston and the New York Jets in 2012. He did not play last season.

On signing a one-day contract with the Ravens, Reed said he tried to get three days and maybe one more year out of Newsome, but no luck.

“It’s tough, man. I’m retiring,” Reed said. “I’m not hanging my cleats up yet. I’ll still work out. When Coach [Harbaugh] first saw me, he said ‘You look like you still could go.’ I’m like, ‘Look like I still could go?’”

Reed said he made the decision to hang up his cleats on April 26th. He was reading a book, “Uneven Lies,” about African-Americans in golf, and it spoke to him.

“I just felt it in my spirit,” Reed said. “It just felt right. … I just knew it in my heart of hearts that it was time to come home to retire.”

Newsome said that in 2002, the Ravens tried to move up in the draft to take another player but couldn’t complete the trade and took Reed instead.

Asked whether coaching is in his future, Reed said: “Right now, I’m coaching flag football for 4-year-olds and 7-year-olds. It doesn’t make you want to be a coach.”

When asked to name one play from his career that stuck out most, Reed didn’t even point to a play that he made. It was an interception that former Ravens cornerback Cary Williams made against Tom Brady in the 2012 AFC championship, sealing Reed and the team’s trip to Super Bowl XLVII.

One of Reed’s plays that stuck out most to Head Coach John Harbaugh was an interception the free safety made when he shouldn’t have even been in the same zip code as the ball. Reed had studied film on the Dolphins quarterback and knew where he would throw the ball on that formation in that situation. The next day, Harbaugh asked Reed how in the world he made the pick.

“I was cheering during the game, but when we got back on Monday, I had to ask. ‘What exactly made you get that route?’” Harbaugh said. “He took me through it step-by-step. He taught me football.”

Reed, 36, holds the NFL record for career interception return yards and was voted The Associated Press 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Drafted in the first round of the 2002 draft out of the University of Miami, Reed had 64 interceptions and was used occasionally as a punt returner.


• Reed’s 64 career INTs rank sixth most in NFL history, while his 1,590 INT return yards stand No. 1.
• Produced a Ravens’ franchise-record 61 INTs for 1,541 return yards and 7 TDs.
• Posted an NFL-record 107-yard return TD (vs. Phi. 11/23/08), breaking the previous long of 106, which he set vs. Cle. (11/7/04).
• Reed’s career INT return yard average of 24.8 yards ranks No. 2 in NFL history (min. 30 INTs).
• Scored 14 TDs in his career (including playoffs) and is the only player in NFL history to score return TDs off a punt return, blocked punt, INT and fumble recovery.
• Blocked 4 punts in his career, returning 3 for TDs (tied for an NFL record).
• Produced 12 multi-INT games (13 including playoffs), the most in NFL history.
• Owns 9-career postseason INTs, tying the NFL playoff record shared by Charlie Waters, Bill Simpson & Ronnie Lott.
• Finished his career with 699 total tackles, 6 sacks, 154 passes defensed, 12 forced fumbles and 10 fumble recoveries. (His 661 total tackles as a Raven rank fourth in team history.)

Next stop….Canton. Reed is eligible to be nominated for inducted in 2019. And we think it’s a done deal.


Crystal Reed Is Officially Coming Back To “Teen Wolf”

Get your first look at Crystal Reed’s long-awaited Teen Wolf return, only on BuzzFeed. Plus, Reed and executive producer Jeff Davis reveal how the super-secret reunion came together. 

mardumasterrace  asked:

Are there any superheroes with autism/Aspergers? I mean, I could make a case for spiderman, iron man, or the hulk... but I want to know if there are any official autistic superheroes.

Reed Richards, I believe was said to have been in one particular run of the Fantastic Four, but nothing was ever done with it from there, nor was it brought up again. Aside from that, I can’t say if anyone else is.
