In the five decades since graphic footage of the JFK assassination splattered its way onto our television screens, said footage has been played, enhanced, replayed, zoomed in upon, and declared “FAKE!” by everyone from Oliver Stone to your dumbass college roommate. As such, you probably think there’s no gruesome detail of that fateful day with which you’re unfamiliar, and to that we emphatically say, “No, you are wrong. Unless you have heard of it, in which case you are some kind of macabre history buff, and are still wrong, albeit in a more general sense.”
The most distressing detail of the footage – other than the exploding skull – is the outward anguish of Jackie Kennedy, who in just seconds transforms from a poised First Lady into a blood-drenched widow. What you probably haven’t heard was her insistence on staying that way.
Hours after the assassination, Jackie arrived on Air Force One for the emergency swearing-in of her husband’s vice president Lyndon Baines Johnson – still wearing her watermelon-pink suit from the motorcade, filthy with her husband’s blood and brain matter. She had repeatedly shot down her aides’ pleas to change with, “No, I’m going to leave these clothes on. I want them to see what they have done.”
any lasting injuries from combat? — he carries some scarring from heavy wounds accumulated during past battles ( loki’s dagger inflicted quite a bit of internal damage and took a while to heal). the fight with the destroyer left him with a few more, including some fractured bones. no injuries from human weaponry last very long, fortunately.
fighting style?(bold any that apply. italics are battle specific) —
commander / duelist / honorable / dishonorable / would have others do their fighting / stealthy / long-ranged / melee / technological / sorcery / superhuman abilities / has fought in a tourney ( well, the asgardian equivalent of one at least) / a lover of fighting / +a hater of fighting / cowardly / reckless / strategic / uses underhanded tricks / renowned for their skill / trained / untrained / keeps skills a secret / won a battle / lost a battle / ruthless / merciful
elaboration —– fighting to the death if necessary is in his blood. people sometimes forget that he is a warrior first and foremost, before he’s a prince, diplomat, hero etc. not only is he exceptionally skilled at combat, he was drilled into being the best there is. powers and abilities aside he will, and can, mess you up if the situation calls for it. and even though he has evolved - as a person, as a god and as warrior - it’s still very much in his nature to ‘shoot first, ask questions later’. the only difference is that at the present he will not act as quickly on that as before, it’s no longer a knee-jerk reaction. he can, and will be, ruthless, he can and will use everything in his might - quite literally - to destroy if he deems it necessary. his rage is fortunately not so blinding as it was before, but it still can be quite consuming. wrath can be a very overpowering thing in him.
SPEED - Don’t Tease Me dance practice needs less than 8000 views to reach 1 million! This is going to be their first dance practice that reach million! (Please watch this video, you won’t regret, I promise) Hopefully we can reach the target before Christmas and make it as a present for them. This might be nothing for a big groups, but for underrated group like speed (that is poorly treated by their own entertainment company) this is the prove that many people like them. Plus this awesome song didn’t get any proper mv other than a footage from their showcase. Please watch their latest comeback too, what U mv, as well as their dance practice :)
Not The Horse Racing Series We Deserved, But the One Someone Apparently Thought We Needed
Yes, especially for my new followers, I am once again assaulting your sanity with this. Because misery loves company.
I’m dragging this back out because apparently the above video for the video game Pretty Derby was so popular it’s actually getting it’s own fully animated anime series.
The Pretty Derby video game isn’t even out yet, they just released the first in-game footage the other day (See below). It also has it’s own manga (comic) called STARTING GATE! on the game company’s website, though it isn’t in English.
Apparently the plot of the game revolved around these anthropomorphized horse girls who are “
endowed with excellent running capability” (And apparently endowed in other areas…) “…and who aim to become top idols and compete in the national sports entertainment show “Twinkle Series.” “
I think I am going to bed now.
Please Japan, just make more Gallop Racer instead.
