Okay, so I meant to write this a lot sooner, but oh well. Better late than never.

So a thing happened at the TØP concert I went to (NYC 9/16/2015) and I wanted to put it out there so the person has even the slightest chance of finding it.

So about halfway through the show when everyone was absolutely dying of thirst but no one really cared because the concert was so amazing, this girl (wearing a white top and a necklace of some sort?) comes pushing through trying to get out of the pit to go get water (because like i said we were all dying of thirst and no one had water, or if they did it was already gone). As she pushes past me she says something along the lines of “I’m really sorry, I just need to go get water” then she looks at me and says “Do you want some water? I can give you some when I get back”. Now we were in the middle of the pit so I just nodded and said yeah, not expecting her to be able to get back to where we were because of all the people. So she left and I kinda forgot about it because I was pretty sure there wasn’t a chance in hell she was coming back. Well, I was wrong. About fifteen minutes or so later (not really sure how long it was I wasn’t paying attention), someone tapped me on the shoulder. She was back. with water. I was so thirsty and the three sips of water made all the difference, because I know that she really didn’t have to give me any at all. She could’ve just as easily came back, not tapped my shoulder, and kept all the water. But she didn’t. And that really helped restore some of my faith in the clique. 

If you could reblog this so that maybe, just maybe that kind stranger will know just how thankful I am. If not for that reason. This shows that not everyone in the clique is bad. There are some truly amazing people among us. 

Anyway. Im not sure how much of that made sense. But I just wanted to put some effort into trying to say thank you to that amazing person. The world needs more people like you.

We’ll be taking questions until Wednesday, October 19 and start posting answers on Saturday, October 22nd.

Magic: the Gathering - Time Warp

Interesting art on a Regional PTQ Top 16 playmat from Ultra PRO surfaced on the interwebz. 

Closely resembling Jesakai Ascendancy in the ‘old’ timeline before Sarkhan mucked about with it, the new art still shows the Jeskai warrior monks - Humans, Djinni, and Aven, but it seems the the Efreet have disappeared (likely due to their affinity for fire) to be supplanted by the (cold-loving) legendary dragonlord Ojutai.

Even though this wasn’t our year, we still conquered a whole lot. You showed me how hard I had to work to get to regionals. You taught me how to stay humble and walk out of the ring with my head up even though I could feel tears coming on. You taught me that if you truly love something you have to let it go if that means giving it a better life.

You taught me life lessons I will never forget, and for that I thank you.

UKRAINE, Peski : A Ukrainian serviceman looks out from a tank at a base near the village of Peski, Donetsk region, on February 16, 2015. Ukraine’s army is not planning to pull its heavy weapons back from the frontline late Monday, as it is meant to do under a nascent truce, because of continued attacks by pro-Russian rebels, a military spokesman told AFP.
