salsa time

artemisgarden  asked:

Hi Bucky! I've seen a few other stories of how you met some Avengers. I'd love to hear about the first time you met Dr. Jane Foster and Darcy Lewis. Does Thor really like to tell people about Darcy tazing him the first time they met?

well, i actually first met doc jane while thor was in asgard, so he wasnt around. from his stories, i expected the doc to be ten feet tall and smarter than tony and dr banner combined, so when she turned out to be the size of little steve i was a bit surprised. pretty much as smart as advertised though. 

lewis and i get along like a house on fire. both of us suffer from terminal My Best Friend Keeps Wanting To Fight Aliens syndrome, so we have a lot in common. plus shes a dang good dancer. we’re learning salsa together. and one time she went out of her way to rescue a puppy from a giant killer alien robot, so i have tons of respect for her. 

lewis told me right out of the gate that she’d tazed thor, but refused to tell the story, since apparently only thor himself can do it justice, and he only gets in a proper tale-telling mood after a huge meal and a bit of asgardian mead. and when i say huge, i mean by his standards. if you can get him to do it, he really does tell it right, in proper norse epic style. 

Celia Cruz (1925 - 2003) aka The Queen of Salsa

Born in Havana, Cuba , Celia would go on to be one of the most popular and beloved salsa  performers of all time, with 23 gold albums. Although there was initial doubt about her ability to sell salsa records in a male dominated genre, throughout her career she rose to the very top of the genre and helped popularize latin music in North America

Hello everyone! It’s been a few days, hasn’t it? Have you missed me? Of course you have, you’ve been living off of cup noodles and vending machine cheetos since you don’t have Taako to lead you to culinary enlightenment.  Well bad news, fellas - Taako still ain’t back yet, not for real.  I know, a tragedy. But don’t fear, food fans! I heard it was @tazladyweek, so while I’m out of the office, I thought it’d only be appropriate to bring on one of my favorite girls, best students, and biggest fans! She saw my show and was inspired to pick up the spatula and wand, and made her way to the town of Refuge, where she now runs the bar at the best (and only…) hot spot in town - The (soon to be famous, I’m sure) Davy Lamp! So, I’ll hand this over to the one and only Ren! She’ll take fabulous care of you, and I’ll catch you all later! Peace! 

-Taako

Wow! Hi everyone! It’s Ren! Ren the dark elf! From Refuge! Which is a town that I live in. Uh, wow, ok, this is really uncomfortable huh? Taako makes this whole “charismatic chef/tv host” thing look easy. Um, ok, starting over. Hi I’m Ren! I’m so excited that Taako asked me to share a recipe with you all! It’s one of the first original recipes I made, back when I was still living in the Underdark! 

In the Underdark, we didn’t really have, uh, easy access to a lot of ingredients surface folks have. After seeing Taako’s show, I tried copying his recipes but when you live underground in a series of dangerous and deadly caves, obtaining things like fresh produce or spices is no easy quest! So, I had to adapt and create my own recipes, using the stuff I could find back home… which… wasn’t a lot. 

But! Taako and his magic cooking inspired me! So I’m so happy and proud that he asked me to share one of my favorite and first original recipes with you all! The first time I made this, I used cavern spores, mold cheese, and giant cave crab as the main ingredients. I probably would NOT recommend that route (especially if you aren’t a Drow or a Deep Gnome or something - or aren’t good friends with one - to help with the crab situation. Those guys can be nasty when they’re untamed!).  When I moved up to Refuge, I found that regular old mushrooms and non-deadly crabs work just as well, and that cheddar cheese is better than the blocks of mold we’d import in the Underdark… Oh, yeah! And, up here, I found the joys of fresh produce like stone fruit, or mangos! 

Combining the flavors from my old and new homes (and the spark of magic I learned from Taako, of course!), I finally managed to create something I’m really proud of! These bad boys are a happy hour favorite down at the Davy Lamp! I hope you’re excited for today’s dish…

Ren’s Underdark Snack Attack Special! Crab stuffed Mushroom Caps! (With mango salsa!)

I’m excited to get started!

Ever since Taliesin tweeted “Percy can DANCE” I have not been able to stop thinking about ballroom scenarios featuring Vox Machina.
Imagine this:

Percy asking Vex for a dance and they kill it on the dance floor! No one matches their grace and elegance, they are pure perfection together, lord and baroness of Whitestone that they are. Vex wonders why it is that of all the men she has danced with dancing with Percy is somehow different. Percy, who loves to dance but hasn’t gotten the chance to in a while, just enjoys holding her close and seeing a smile free of worries on her face.

Britney Spears is known for her prowess as a dancer but many people are ignorant to the fact that she is responsible for inventing the dance move, the shimmy. Spears first shimmied in 1999 for her …Baby One More Time music video and has continued to utilize this move throughout her career. The shimmy has since influenced many forms of dance including salsa and hip-hop.

Marco Antonio Muñiz (born September 16, 1968), better known by his stage name as Marc Anthony, is an American record producer, singer-songwriter, fashion designer, actor and television producer.

Muñiz began his career as a session vocalist for freestyle and Underground New York house music acts. After changing his name to avoid confusion with his namesake, Anthony worked as a songwriter and backing vocalist for pop acts including Menudo and the Latin Rascals. His first album was a freestyle music record, “Rebel”, in 1988 on Bluedog Records. That same year he wrote and produced “Boy I’ve Been Told” for fellow freestyle artist Sa-Fire. Then in 1989, he sang backup vocals for Ann-Marie on the freestyle club hit, “With or Without You” produced by Little Louie Vega and Todd Terry.

Otra Nota (1993) Anthony was initially reluctant to become a salsa musician and declined an offer to make a salsa album when Ralph Mercado, president of RMM Records, asked him. Anthony was in a taxi when he heard Juan Gabriel’s hit song, “Hasta Que Te Conocí” which influenced him to change his mind and ask Mercado if he could record it as a salsa tune. Inspired by the music of Tito Puente, Hector Lavoe, Rubén Blades and Juan Gabriel, Anthony released his Spanish-language debut, Otra nota, in 1993.

While Anthony is an American cit­i­zen, born and raised in New York of Puerto Rican descent, numer­ous offen­sive tweets made the rounds, say­ing “shouldn’t an Amer­i­can be singing God Bless America?” under the mistaken belief that Anthony is actu­ally from Mex­ico or Cuba. The Anti-Defamation League spoke out against the offensive tweets.

The rocky marriage came to an end in October 2003 with Dayanara filing for divorce in January 2004. To help in her recovery from the divorce, Dayanara traded her engagement ring for a diamond-encrusted Cartier watch and wrote the book Married to Me: How Committing to Myself Led to Triumph After Divorce.

When his divorce proceedings began, Anthony was spotted with long-time friend Jennifer Lopez. Prior to his first marriage and her second, they had briefly dated. Lopez and Anthony married on June 5, 2004, less than a week after his divorce was finalized. Guests had been invited to an “afternoon party”, unaware they were attending a wedding. Lopez gave birth to their children, twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximillian David Muñiz on February 22, 2008. People (magazine) paid $6 million for the first photos of the twins. In 2009, Anthony and Lopez purchased a stake in the Miami Dolphins. They joined several personalities in buying small stakes in the club, including Gloria and Emilio EstefanVenus and Serena Williams, and Fergie. They bought two houses in Brookville, New York but Anthony and Lopez announced their separation in July 2011, with Anthony filing for divorce on April 9, 2012. Their divorce was finalized on June 18, 2014, with Lopez winning primary custody of the children.
