queue-bending

Zuko firebending with airbender style footwork.

The fancy footwork Zuko has going on here is akin to the type of footwork used for airbending–or bagua, which is what airbending is based on. That is to say that that Zuko is being very quick and agile. That, and the way his body is positioned throughout this short sequence and the way his body moves when dodgeing Katara’s attacks is very reminiscent of bagua. 

And look at those dodges! Nice evasive maneuvering, Zuko! That’s very airbender-y.

Cosplay Question!: Do you know where Courtney bought/made/found her AppleJack Cosplay? And where did you get your Rarity wig? Also that person who threatened you is a buttface, no one should threaten my favorite cosplayer >:I

She got most of the pieces for her costume from thrift stores, which is what I did too. My Rarity wig is from eBay, I found it just by searching for “curly purple wig.” (Since it was just MLP cosplay, I didn’t really care about getting a good-quality wig, but this one was decent quality, cheap, and it worked pretty well. Otherwise Arda has a lot of lovely curly wigs that would work wonders for Rarity!)

Hope that helps! And thank you, that person was all kinds of cray, I’m not too worried about it though. :)

I will be on queue next week because I am going on vacation. I’ll miss live blogging but it’s only a week so, yeah..

Doesn’t it make you guys sad that school is almost here. Well it makes me sad. :(

Time to blog some positive stuff
  • I love my acting class; I’m so glad that I decided to take it this semester. I can tell it’s going to be an important outlet for me. I’ve always felt more comfortable on stage than in real life, and so far I’m really enjoying being silly for a bit on a couple afternoons a week.
  • I’m still enjoying cooking, a lot.
  • I’m getting back to exercise regularly, and enjoying it as well.
  • My friends are still awesome. Much thanks to my BFFs Kris and Christa, as well as my friends at Halforums. Without all of them I’d be much worse off.
  • My parents are being very supportive. They may not really understand me a lot of the time, but they’re trying very hard, and they’re doing a lot to make sure things keep rolling in my life.
  • My group psych meetings on Thursday are great. Wonderful people to get to chat with. I don’t know what I’d do without that outlet.

Giant Cluster Bends, Breaks Images

Explanation: What are those strange blue objects? Many of the brightest blue images are of a single, unusual, beaded, blue, ring-like galaxy which just happens to line-up behind a giant cluster of galaxies. Cluster galaxies here typically appear yellow and – together with the cluster’s dark matter – act as a gravitational lens. A gravitational lens can create several images of background galaxies, analogous to the many points of light one would see while looking through a wine glass at a distant street light. The distinctive shape of this background galaxy – which is probably just forming – has allowed astronomers to deduce that it has separate images at 4, 10, 11, and 12 o’clock, from the center of the cluster. A blue smudge near the cluster center is likely another image of the same background galaxy. In all, a recent analysis postulated that at least 33 images of 11 separate background galaxies are discernable. This spectacular photo of galaxy cluster CL0024+1654 from the Hubble Space Telescope was taken in November 2004.

Haha it’s not like that in nhs atm where there’s no money that’s why they’re doing temp contracts… Our hospital alone has to make a spending cut of £1.2m…. 3 beds have been closed with 7 more planned to close when we have patients queueing round the bend in general hospital and in york and out of area beds to be admitted to our ward alone! It’s a shambles
