Rewatching some early season three episodes of Flash, and wow, Julian. Even before we knew he was being controlled by Savitar, remember what he looked like back then?

He was a mess. Even when he was relatively cleaned up and didn’t look quite so much like he was coming off a three-day bender (as in the last screencap), he still didn’t look like a guy who was having a happy life and getting enough sleep.

As opposed to what he looks like in the latest episodes, now that he’s free of Savitar (er, well, to the extent that anybody’s free of Savitar right now) and has friends and allies on Team Flash.

…. I mean, to some extent, it’s possible the actor just got a haircut, but he looks so scruffy and worn down in so many of his early season three scenes. Poor Julian. ❤

(This post is totally not an excuse to go through various episodes screencapping Julian. Of course not.)

anonymous asked:

do u think that it's not a coincidence that louis still seems to be more tied down than the other boys and because of that is only releasing music via collaborating with people (steve, bebe rhexa) as opposed to completely on his own? is it possible that they told him he wasn't allowed to make solo music and he found some sort of loop hole by making solo music but by being a feature on a track instead of the only artist?

No idea. We can come up with theory after theory, but I have no idea what’s going on.

I’ve eased up on running the past couple of days in an attempt to rest my right knee up. It’s just so stiff….still!
So I switched gears and I’m walking to a few of my jobs during the day. (I’m watching a ton of kitties this week) The walks are about 10 miles round trip so it’s nothing big!
It’s actually pretty nice to walk and take in everything a bit more as opposed to running. I walked past a classic car show, a pet expo, a little kid cycle race, and a bunch of soccer games today alone!

Oh I’m lifting a bit more too and it’s such a nice change up. 🏋️‍♀️I added weight today too and I felt so strong, lol. (It was only ten pounds, BUT STILL)

O.m.g. My babies are driving me crazy. I’ve taken them to a park everyday this week and they are still being a handful.
I think a date night is needed asap.

plot thoughts: ok but listen to me ! aladdin au. spock is ( princess jasmine ) the prince of Shi'Kahr of Vulcan , with his loyal pet , i-chaya. he’s grown weary of life in palace confinement and wants to explore the galaxy ; not about that age-old logic that says he must marry someone royal in time for his birthday , && instead , determined to marry someone he loves for who they are as opposed to what they own.

also Sarek’s the sultan and whoever’s aladdin in this business is probably a space pirate tbh.

So there’s some folks in costumes again. A gaggle of super friends, you might say. A league of justice-doers, as Visionary Director Zack Snyder might put it.

It’s…y’know, I’m not sure. This hits a lot of buttons for stuff that should get me hyped in a trailer, but with one exception it didn’t give me much of a buzz. Not sure why; it all looks gorgeous and vibrant and weird, and there’s some funny bits in there. Maybe the action was so over-the-top abstracted as to not be visceral (my problem with the big Doomsday throwdown at the end of BvS, as opposed to the Zod fight that, whatever you think of it, was most certainly visceral). Maybe it was the relative lack of narrative presented beyond “they all get together to fight a thing” - better than the whole game being given away like its predecessor, but there just wasn’t much to take in here beyond “yes, okay, speed effects look good with Flash and cover up his silly-ass costume nicely, Wonder Woman’s still doing slow-motion leg sweeps, Cyborg’s design looks notably less completely awful in motion, Batman’s funny, okay”.

I still think this is likely going to be the best of these movies to date: from what I’ve seen, it’s a simple setup with simple ambitions that’ll probably be executed fairly competently, rather than an amateurish, vaguely unstable, unduly self-important B-movie that’s tricked itself into thinking it’s Oscar bait like its big brother, and that puts it on top of the current DC pile by default compared to the fatally compromised Man Of Steel, the generic-looking Wonder Woman, or the just regular old shit Suicide Squad. Given how Quicksilver’s thrown down the gauntlet in the X-Men movies - and I’ll certainly give Snyder that he’s at least a better visual stylist than Bryan Singer - I have to imagine there’ll be at least one standout Flash sequence. Plus, y’know, it’s a Justice League movie, that’s cool as hell. But while this trailer didn’t at all put me off it, it didn’t draw me further in either.

EXCEPT.

THIS GUY.

I don’t know how much bribe money had to be kicked under the table or how many illicit favors had to be done to sneak Brave And The Bold Aquaman into this thing, but whoever pulled it off: you have done humanity a service that can never be repaid.

Evil Charming for Send me a ship and I'll rate it

I love Evil Charming. (I’ve thrown the ratings out the window, I just gush about them). They’s so sweet together. There’s an anger and they do start out opposed to each other (though she does casually save his life). Where they are now, is incredibly sweet. (I think part of that is Josh and Lana just having a great chemistry). I love the scene where they dance. I think if anything ever happened to Snow, David and Regina would be really close. She’d be one of the ones to help drag him through. Help keep him here (because that responsibility shouldn’t be on Emma, not the child even though she’s an adult. 

They’re also very pretty together. I don’t enjoy cheating, so…if something happened to Snow, I could see them. Or…young Regina runs away from Cora and meets David.

This episode for me really highlighted and then in its dramatic finale brought to an extreme the use of perspective that Rebecca Sugar has often talked about during panels. In her rare appearances, we are almost always looking up at Rose Quartz, or she is leaning down and over our POV - be it Pearl kneeling before her hologram in Rose’s Scabbard

or Greg on a number of occasions during the early days of their relationship (We Need To Talk is a really interesting watch with regards to camera angles and how they change - Greg literally climbs a stack of crates during his attempt at communication and, well, seeing eye to eye)

or Garnet after her fateful fall in The Answer

or, hey, Buddy Buddwick collapsed in the desert in Buddy’s Book

She even has magical floating powers. It all fits, of course, with the entire running theme of the (unattainable/unmaintainable) pedestal. And even when she is not directly present, and even when it’s not the focus of the shot, her portrait can be seen overlooking the familiar setting of the beach house.

It's Only Day 4

This is going to be harder than I had ever anticipated. It is Day 4 and Trump has already taken the following actions:

- Gutted the Affordable Care Act mandate, which is essentially the scaffolding upon which the ACA is built. Without the mandate, the rest of the ACA WILL NOT function.

- Allied with Russia in Syria to support a government who has targeted its own citizens, sometimes burning them alive. Our military is now in effect targeting men, women and children. (This according to the Russian Defense Ministry statements today.)

- Frozen the pay rates of all federal employees (yes, that includes your Auntie who works in the cafeteria at the VA down the street.)

- Instated a #GlobalGag Order which denies funding to any international organization that so much as refers a client to an abortion provider.

I feel it is my duty as an American to continue speaking out against these egregious acts. But I can’t do it alone. I’m going to ask all of you to speak out. I don’t know if there is a solution other than waiting out the next 4 years and hoping we survive, but I’m going to damn well try.

We will have some action items for you later today. Spefically, we will be asking that you call your Senators again to stop the Sessions confirmation, ask your Congresspersons to save the ACA if at all possible and oppose a new bill that would remove the United States from the United Nations.

Love one another today, because it’s only day 4 and we have a long way to go.

journalists on the ground in syria: assad is slaughtering syrians

syrian civilians: assad is bombing us

large portion of syrian refugees: we’re escaping assad and death and destruction

ngos: humanitarian problem in syria caused by besiegement by govt forces

“anti-imperialist” leftists *while ignoring role of russia*: these are all clearly lies! assad is just trying to fight off and protect syria from western intervention and imperialism

you know what really fucking grinds my gears? the fact that amazing organizations like You Can Play can spend so much time, money, and effort doing their best to make hockey inclusive - they can get players to use rainbow tape, they can have players and coaches release statements, they can encourage players to speak up against homophobia - but all of that means jack shit when a kid can still be watching his favorite team play and see some douchebag like andrew shaw using the f-slur. i know it was a while ago, and i know he apologized, but that doesn’t undo the fact that, no matter how hard YCP works, kids will still see shit like that and think “yeah, it still happens on the ice” or “yeah it probably happens in the locker room.” it’s fucking bullshit that so many people can work so hard just so that people aren’t scared to play hockey and be open about their sexuality, and some dumbass can fuck it all up in .2 seconds bc he didn’t agree with a fucking tripping call.

Admiral Raddus and Admiral Ackbar are probably both such brilliant space tacticians because they are Mon Calamari. This is not because they have large brains or heightened intelligence, but because they have spent their lives in an aquatic environment, which means they instinctively think in three dimensions when plotting a battle strategy.

Don’t be ashamed of liking SAO no matter who tells you otherwise!

I cannot stress this enough! I am so sick and tired of people constantly kicking SAO over and over again as if it’s what keeps their heart pumping. Every time I look up SAO on Youtube, do you know what I find besides the scenes and soundtracks? Every anime review on the planet with a somewhat decent following bashing the shit out of it. There’s no mercy, no regret, no apologizes and more importantly no regard for the people who do like SAO. If there is, then it is very, very, VERY little regard. Guys like digibro, mother’s basement and now arcadea are among the many who won’t leave it alone because apparently it’s the worst thing since the holocaust and therefore must be shamed into oblivion. To those reviewers I ask you. If SAO would it have a 7.80 (a C+, not great but still passable for those of you going by the educational grading system) on myanimelist if it was so terrible? would there be as many people as there are cosplaying sao characters at conventions? would there be as many fanfics and fanarts? people who say that sao helped them irl with anger (https://www.reddit.com/r/swordartonline/comments/3bofs8/discussion_sao_helped_me/?), exams (https://www.reddit.com/r/swordartonline/comments/4zlx7h/i_think_sao_helped_me_pass_my_exams/), and autism (https://www.reddit.com/r/swordartonline/comments/4ayaxd/im_glad_i_am_not_alone/, https://www.reddit.com/r/swordartonline/comments/4ddpu6/how_sao_anime_helped_me_to_level_up_irl/) ? would have a few games already made? would be getting an American adaptation? Would it be getting a movie? Would it be allowed to go as long as it has if it was utter garbage? No because it wouldn’t make logical sense. Not unless SAO had enough of a following to stay devoted and keep it so popular. Look I won’t act like it doesn’t have problems. The Aincrad arc could have been expanded a bit longer, the harem aspect probably wasn’t needed, a certain”romance” in the fairy tale arc couldn’t have been changed to something else, sughu is kinda over the top and death gun isn’t necessary a deep character, and the whole Calibur arc probably could’ve been dropped. However this complaints still aren’t enough for me to sway my opinion that SAO, for all its flaws, is still a good anime. A good starting point for people getting into the genre at least. The things people complain about and Hell the things I complained about don’t bother me because I’ve seen it all before. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for seeing something new and different but seeing something I’ve seen before doesn’t bother me either. we all want new things but too many and we forget what we’re familiar with and love. OP main character? Seen it. Harem (not even an anime one)? Seen it. Over the top or boring villains? Seen it. Stories not particularly complex? Seen it. Deus ex-machina? Bitch please, I’ve seen that in spades. All these, while not new things, are things that I’m used to seeing that I just don’t mind it anymore. If I did then there would be a lot of other popular things out there I should hate that I don’t. If we were all like that than we might as well give up on entertainment all together. I know SAO isn’t perfect, but it’s not the garbage fire the sheep preach it to be. If someone hates it, don’t take there word as gospel if you haven’t seen it. If you want to know truly, I believe the best way is to experience it yourself. If you like it great. If you don’t I’m sorry but don’t go around scaring people and saying you have a “moral obligation” to keep people from liking something that is a work of FICTION! If you don’t like it, turn it off and move on! DO NOT berate, insult, or degrade ANYONE for ANY REASON, especially for something that’s not even real and gives people happiness even if you don’t understand it. I know I’m probably gonna be called every bad word in the book just for this post alone. It just proves my point that they don’t have anything better to do than hop on the band wagon of “SAO is shit” with there quick and easy views on there videos of how much it’s anal fire. If you’re one of the people that gain happiness from SAO YOU! ARE! NOT! ALONE! don’t listen to those who say it sucks because they’re either doing for attention or they don’t like it and refuse to understand how anyone could or they do understand and just don’t care otherwise they wouldn’t be passing along the message. however if they insult you are say things to negate your opinion you are allowed if you want to to fight back. No one should be told they’re an idiot ot have low standards for finding enjoyment in something that others don’t and refuse to join the herd. Feel free to let your emotions and thoughts speak highly of the series as much as you want. If the aggressors are allowed to be loud and hurtful than so are those who oppose them because no one should allow themselves or their opinions to be treated as shit. Don’t support those who hate on the series and don’t be afraid to say how much you love SAO. And don’t be afraid to support or at least try out other series that people despise to see how you think of it. It’s better to trust and regret and doubt and regret. At least than you can keep being hopeful and that’s really all anyone ever needs.
