Skam and the budget

Skam and the budget

The least important that happened during budget deliberations, came when Labour’s Per Anders Langerød once again referred to the television series Skam.

- Mayor, one need not look far for evidence that we need more homes in Oslo. Just think of Isaac and Nora, whom in a cramped apartment most feel the growing city, said Langerød.

He was not the only one.

Hope Isaac is more proactive in his approach to Even than the Conservatives are to digitalization and will not wait passively for a message #osby #skam

Mayor Marianne Borgen (SV) was forced to ask the city council members to calm down on Skam references. Otherwise it must be mandatory to watch Skam, so everyone can keep up, she admonished.

- It is mandatory! someone shouted from the council chamber.

Journal of the Whills, (Part) I

This is the story of Mace Windy, a revered Jedi-bendu of Ophuchi as related to us by C.J. Thorpe, padawan learner to the famed Jedi.

I am Chuice two Thorpe of Kissel. My father was Han Dandell Thorpe, chief pilot of the renown galactic cruiser Tarnack. As a family we were not rich, except in honor, and valuing this above all mundane possessions, I chose the profession of my father, than than a more profitable career. I was 16 I believe, and pilot of the trawler [Balancing], when my ambitions demanded that I enter the exalted Interplanetary Academy to train as a potential Jedi-templer. It is here that I became padawan learner to the great Mace Windy, highest of all Jedi-bendu masters, and at that time, Warlord to the chairman of the Alliance of Independent Systems.

Never shall I forget the occasion upon which I first set eyes upon Mace Windy. It was at the great feast of the [Pleabs]. There were gathered under one roof, the most powerful warriors in the Galaxy, and although I realise my adoration of the Master might easily influence my memory, when he entered the hall, these great and noble Warlords fell silent. It was said he was the most gifted and powerful man in the Independent Systems. Some felt he was even more powerful than the Imperial leader of the Galactic Empire.

In Honor of Peter Vaughan, Here Are Maester Aemon’s Most Memorable ‘Game of Thrones’ Moments

On Tuesday, Dec. 6, the actor Peter Vaughan passed away at age 93. His agent stated that Vaughan “died peacefully with his family around him.”

In a career that started in the 1950s, Vaughan had gained new renown for his role as Maester Aemon on HBO’s Game of Thrones. The actor had appeared in numerous British television series over the years and was often recognized for his performance as the menacing Harry Grout in the popular prison sitcom Porridge.

Vaughan was a self-described character actor who considered himself very fortunate to have his extensive résumé. “They talk about actors resting. The only time I have ever rested in my 77 years as an actor has been when I’ve wanted to. Lucky, lucky, lucky,” he once said.

Outside his career in TV, Vaughan had prominent roles in Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, and alongside Anthony Hopkins in The Remains of the Day.

In The Remains of The Day, Peter Vaughan with Anthony Hopkins in 1993.

On Game of Thrones, the actor stood tall amongst a cast of bombastic, dynamic characters and performances while playing the blind, soft-spoken maester tasked with advising and guiding Jon Snow and the men of the Night’s Watch. Above are three of his most memorable moments from Game of Thrones. Rest in peace, Peter Vaughan.

I hope you see this. I love this hero so much like, ( hulk is still my favorite) haha.. Merry christmas !

He’s BUTT PONY! Well renowned for his cute, squishy buttocks, sworn to never rest until every butt in the world is appreciated! Powers include: Complimenting, Hugging, and in rare circumstances, Kissing! XD

Omg this is amazing! Totally wasn’t expecting this! Thank you so much this just made my day! :D

Tbh one of my favourite things in Flash V1 is how Barry just… conveniently happens to know a ton of famous people, sometimes inexplicably

I mean. A lot of Silver Age heroes did that but it stands out to me with Barry because unlike Reporter Clark Kent and Billionaire Bruce Wayne and so on, Barry has no logical excuse for knowing all these people.

Barry is portrayed as, outside of hero work, this completely average guy and everybody around him sees him as completely average and yet he just casually is longtime friends with astronauts and the best fashion designers in the world and world-renowned scientists and famous Hollywood actresses.

And this is as a civilian, none of them even know he’s the Flash!

I just love it so much

Crispovich radiohost!AU

radiohost!AU in the fashion of Welcome to Night Vale but set in Germany (in a place like Bielefeld) in which Georgij is this very renowned radio host - ‘cause his Cthulhu-like voice is really, really appreciated in a city full of monsters, supernatural beings and, in general, a big amounts of terrifying and inexplicable Things™ - who presents a very popular one-hour radio show, talking about Angst&Tragedy in literature, songs, movies, in shorts in every field of pop culture, what a pity he’s getting a little predictable, lately, speaking all the time about his broken heART OH NO GEORGIJ STAHP

Michele, instead, was a supernatural!soccer reporter - he made live commentaries and had a lot of fans but then Sara decided to quit her job as a co-host in order to follow her rising career as a singer and lute player. He had to accept the harsh reality and move on but he sank into a deep depression OH JESUS CHRIST and quitted his old show, asking to broacast in another time slot. So, he starts hosting a new show at eleven o’ clock in the evening - exactly a hour before Georgij’s show - and that’s how they get to know each other a bit better, since they have only known each other by side until this moment.

They find out they have the same, over-dramatic approach to Life&Love and all that’s in between, that their love life is quite unlucky (well well, Michele has accepted his separation from Sara but is still single and not quite familiar with the idea of loving someone in a different and healthier way, while Georgij is trying to understand how to tone down his emotion and not end up resulting so intense, people will fly away if you keep on acting like that, my dear) and that they have a penchant for the literature of their respective home countries. They start to become increasingly acquainted but during the first months they only speak when they meet at the radio, while they’re arranging things for their shows - sometimes Michele stays after work and they go out after Georgij’s show, they above all like to take long strolls in the not-so-sleeping city full of dark and terrors, THEY LIKE THE ATMOSPHERE.

Then one Saturday evening they both run into each other at the same party, the one that Mila and Sara organized to celebrate their first year together, and they found out that Georgij’s is the best friend of Michele’s almost-sister-in-law and Michele is the brother of the lover of Georgij’s best friend (WHAT A TURN OF EVENTS, ZOMG). They decide it’s a sign of destiny like serendipity I DUNNO and they start bonding even more, starting to date out of the radio and even in the daylight… Above all they start realizing they can be in a relationship with someone else without being clingy and over-protective - there will be quite a clash of similar attitudes, here - and they slowly but inexorably fall in love with each other. And they decide to give it a try, without creating unrealistic expectations but simply enjoying each other’s company day by day and finding out there’s someone else who can understand their, well, unique perspective about love and reality.

Late night work will surely become more tolerable - even quite enjoyable! - in the end.

Even when his work brought him to the morgue, and he was met with contempt and a scathing remark, even when Lestrade made a point of forcing her to cooperate, it was a little while before the renowned detective took the trouble to give Dr Hooper a proper once-over.

I think Dan has a tendency to forget that while a lot of us do find him attractive there’s only a tiny fraction of his viewers who are “dangirls” most of his audience is there because he makes good content and i wish he’d realize that most of us don’t give a shit when he uploads or what type of video it is or if it’s his normal style because in the end we all just want him to be comfortable with himself and his viewers
