I can’t believe Bangtan didn’t tell us about their 8th member

“It’s been a really tough few days, we said goodbye to somebody in recent days that was an amazing artist, an incredible human being, somebody who I know probably touched everybody in this entire room and touched me personally as well: Chester.
Make some noise for Chester!
I’ve learned a lot watching him live his life, he taught me so much and when I close my eyes and think about him, I think about his face which was always smiling. I think about his heart which he wore on his sleeve. I think about how kind treated both me, my brother, Tomo, the band.
I think about what he taught me about pursuing your dreams, pursuing your passion relentlessy and at the same time being able to have an incredible family.
He had six incredible children as well and every time we spoke there wasn’t a conversation that we had that didn’t include something about his family.
What you guys, I think, get a sense from Linkin Park and it certainly was an extension of how Chester lived his life, is, Linkin Park it’s not just a band, it’s family and the way they think about you guys is very similar to Thirty Seconds to Mars, it’s a giant family and we try to make something more than just get on stage and play music.
We try to connect and communicate in a way that’s deep and meaningful and I learned that from Chester, he did it night after night after night after night.
What about that voice? That voice will live forever.
If there’s anyone here who ever feels like there’s no hope and you are at the end of the road, you gotta reach out, you gotta say what you’re thinking about, you gotta share it with your friends, with your family.
Don’t give up! Do not give up!
I’ve found in my life, the absolute greatest breakthroughs in my entire life happened just beyond the darkest moments.”

-Jared Leto about his friend Chester Bennington during the Thirty Seconds to Mars’ concert in NY, July 22 2017

(Jared dedicates “Alibi”, voice and guitar, to Chester)

Humans are crazy

So I was hanging with friends today and it dawned on me…that human beings are insane. What we do for “fun” is insane.

We jump out of planes, jump off cliffs, climb sheer cliff walls hundreds of thousands of feet up. We have games for CHILDREN that involve pressing a button and getting shocked with electricity, and one of the most popular sports, in america at least, is full of humans bashing against each other and causes brain damage. Or humans trying to hang on to dear life on a bucking angry bull, and risk getting gored. Or just pummeling each other bloody in a ring. And we love it.

I mean, Just today, my friends and I used an electric charge machine (for flexing muscles and helping blood flow I think?) And spent an hour shocking each other and seeing how long we could last on the highest charge despite pain and spasms.

Then there are carnivals (which we also visited). Look around a carnival and nearly every ride is meant to be “fun” but also cause discomfort. Heights, spinning, sudden drops, high speeds, often combinations of all of these. They’re like giant colorful torture machines, and we LOVE them. We have whole parks dedicated to bigger, more complicated versions of carnival rides and roller coasters.

We actively seek out things that cause us discomfort…for FUN. Life risking or painful things for FUN.

Can you imagine what aliens would think about that? Imagine a poor aliens reaction upon coming to earth to research human passtimes and just being confronted with all these crazy hunans doing crazy, uncomfortable, sometimes painful things….for fun. Like,“Oh my gosh they torture themselves for fun why why why? How do we fight something that gets a kick out of hurting itself??” Imagine taking an alien visitor to a carnival or amusement park and them just being horrified.

Alien- What in the stars… Why have you taken me to a torture camp?? I thought we were friends!
Human- what do you mean? It’s a carnival! It’s fun!
Alien- but there are instruments of torture and interrogation everywhere! And…did you decorate them in colorful, pleasing lights?? What sick joke is this?!?

Or inversly, can you imagine a more serious situation wherein a human is captured and taken to be interrogated and are just…terrified. imagining what this warlike alien species has uo their sleeves, how they would torture them for information they sought. The master interrogator is this scarred, gruff alien who’s made it his life work to torture and rip that information away.

And then the human is taken into the torture room and just stops and stares at the whirl a twirl ride in the middle of the room. And they see this carnival ride and the interrogator and everyone else seem wary or scared of it, but the human just gets excited. And the whole time it’s running, the aliens are just flabbergasted because the human who’s being tortured is just laughing and grinning and even after puking is still yelling “again, again!”

No other race tortures themselves for fun. Human beings are just the craziest things.

  • *Takano pointing to a broken coffee machine*
  • Takano: So...who broke it? I'm not mad, I just wanna know.
  • Onodera: I did, I broke-
  • Takano: No, no you didn't. Isaka?
  • Isaka: Don't look at me, look at Hatori.
  • Hatori: What? I didn't break it.
  • Isaka: Huh, that's weird, how'd you even know it was broken?
  • Hatori: Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken.
  • Isaka: Suspcious.
  • Hatori: No, it's not-
  • Mino: If it matters, probably not, but Kisa was the last one to use it.
  • Kisa: Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Mino: Oh, really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
  • Kisa: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles, everyone knows that, Mino!
  • Onodera: Okay, okay! Let's not fight, I broke it, let me pay for it Takano-san.
  • Takano: No, who broke it?
  • Hatori: Takano-san, Asahina has been awfully quiet.
  • Asahina: Really?!
  • Hatori: Yeah, really!
  • *arguing ensues between everyone as Takano steps out of the room* Takano: I broke it. It burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now they'll be at each other's throats with war paint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.

every single time i pause on the a dance practice video i get something like this i mean what is even happening in this ending pose? why does jinyoung look like his soul has just ascended from his body? why is youngjae touching his dick? why does bambam look like he’s reaching for something on the top self even though he knows he can’t reach it but is too stubborn to give up? wtf is yugyeom so angry at? why does jackson look like one of those guys who doesn’t understand personal boundaries and mark is just smiling to mask his uncomfortableness? jaebum is just happy to be there.

someone in Amity Park runs a blog dedicated to collecting the doofiest photos of Phantom that anyone can get their hands on, like any embarrassing poses, weird expressions, or like the moment after he just got the shit kicked out of him and his face is eating dirt and his ass is in the air, they all go up on the blog

It’s called PhantomPhuckUps, 50% of its content is submitted by Wes

Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II, but that “Rodan flies over Tokyo Disneyland” shot is extended into an entire sequence of Baby Godzilla and Azusa just casually exploring the park having fun and getting into the front of every line under Rodan’s watchful eye because that is absolutely the right way to win the favor of this child you’re fighting to gain custody of.
