silence will fall

anonymous asked:

What would Connor's laugh sound like? *Can* he laugh???

I MEAN he’s definitely capable of laughing just as much as anyone else is, i just dont think he does it often. the closest he gets is probs a snort/scoff, considering even smiling is rare for him. the kid doesnt really have much to laugh about

i feel like when he does laugh its pretty soft? he’s not a loud laugher, its probs fairly quiet and airy, maybe a little melodic, but for the most part can be easily unheard. he doesnt laugh hard but when he does i imagine hes rly a sight to behold

And would successes, causing lot of trouble.

Why is it happening in the French show ?

because…

Either he doesn’t take the time to pronounce it

or it’s title screen time and the line with the name is cut.

And between the ones who doesn’t remember his name

and the ones who refuse to use it because they hate it,

I can swear you you won’t heard it right away.

To resume: in English shows this kind of elements are SUPER IMPORTANT ! And in French shows… not so much

PS: we ended to know the French character name in season 4.
We all understood why no one used it. Just no.

A Review of Maggie Umber 2017. Sound of Snow Falling. 2dcloud: Minneapolis, MN.

I received my copy of Maggie Umber’s (@maggieumber) Sound of Snow Falling this week. This is an attempt at putting in words some things that it brought to me, even if a piece of music might be able to say it better.

Not only has Maggie Umber succeeded in her stated goal “to make science more accessible to non-scientists”, as testified by the owl researcher James Duncan in his foreword to this book — but her scientifically accurate work has a huge emotional impact which is that of a work of art. Popularizing science has been a trend in recent years if one looks at the success of the YouTube channels such as those of Mitch Moffit & Greg Brown of @asapscience, Emilie Graslie of @thebrainscoop, and Hank Green & co. of @scishow, following in the footsteps of such eminent science communicators as Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye. What Maggie Umber does, however, is not so much to popularize as to give us an engaging living viewport into the lives of the Great Horned Owls in their environment.

What for me was the most immediate and accessible part of the novel, was its depiction of winter light. The colour scheme is very restrained: umber, the colour used by the Dutch Baroque masters to give chiaroscuro shades, and near-monochromatic grayscale gradients dominate the work with blue. Some muted red is added here and there to give additional strength and contrast. For me, the effect is instantly recognizable. This is what winter light feels like. Many of the general landscape sceneries recall to my mind Finnish landscape painters such as Akseli Gallen-Kallela and Pekka Halonen.

On the other hand, some of the deceivingly easy looking brush strokes remind me of the Japanese art of Zen ink painting. 

This sort of a meditative mood is what I take home from the novel - a nowness of a world depicted and evoked with just a few lines. What is the sound of snow falling is like asking the kōan – what is the sound of one hand clapping. Umber’s nonverbal communication through the narrative is evocative of nowness of hearing the silence, the silence that John Cage proved does not exist except in the act of putting together of the sounds themselves (“one enters an anechoic chamber [–] to discover that one hears two sounds of one’s own unintentional making (nerve’s systematic operation, blood’s circulation)” John Cage 1955. Experimental Music: Doctrine). The silence that is what makes music, music.

And yet, the effect of her novel is entirely contemporary and new. The documentary-film–like quality of the work rises to the fore for example in the sequences of nesting as if through a streaming webcam. Even if she started off in the idiom of graphic novels with their narration techniques, I feel that Maggie Umber has moved beyond, into the realm of art as a portable, affordable treasure to be owned. These things don’t happen that often. So, if you don’t have it yet, grab it while you can.

The credits roll, I stand up.

This is my one hand clapping for you, Maggie.

Apart from being absolutely visually stunning, The Impossible Astronaut is possibly the best series opener ever, it’s just so solid, and introduces us to the wonderful Canton, who really should have returned at some point in Matt’s tenure as the Doctor. The Doctor’s death scene is one of the most shocking and beautiful scenes the show has produced, I just love it!!

The Fall

“You’ve been picking my voice to dance to

You said my money no good in here

Even though I didn’t ask you”

I see you asked the DJ to play my song for you as you grind and slide up and down that but when you saw me walk in, you acted like you didn’t know who I was, like your were bigger than me. But if you haven’t noticed, I’ve had my eye on every other girl in here besides you, so don’t flatter yourself. 

“And it’s the most you’ve worked

Even though I probably don’t deserve this girl

But you been dreaming for this moment so you have to”

You’ve never worked so hard in your life. Don’t get me wrong, you’re beautiful, and he last thing a nigga like me needs is a goddess dancing butt ass naked in my face, but you’ve idolized me for so long, how can you resist?

“Baby, it’s OK

I got show money baby

I wanna show you how I blow money baby

I wanna show you how I throw money baby

I’m a kid, so it’s hard for me to hold money, baby”

I got money to blow, baby girl. Now watch how easily I can splurg it all on you without so much as a second thought. You know you’re worth it baby girl. 

“'Cause I’m a star, don’t get it twisted
Got some trappers in my car
What kind of caps I got the brownest of them all
Somebody pop ‘em before we pop 'em all, before we pop 'em all”

Im blowing up now. Don’t be misinformed. I got my niggas on stand by and they stay with the purest, the rawest, that dope shit. it’ll guarantee you’ll be out of your mind. If you don’t take them all, we will.

 

“Saying this ain’t nothing, but it’s all I need
And the peak ain’t reached but the peak is all I feel
And it feels so good

it feels so good

it feels so good

it feels so good

I ain’t scared of the fall

I ain’t scared of the fall

I ain’t scared of the fall

I ain’t scared of the fall

I’ve felt the ground before

I’ve felt the ground before

I’ve felt the ground before

I’ve felt the ground before

I ain’t scared of the fall”

It’s not much, but it’ll do for now. I can feel myself getting lifted, faded, and I don’t want it to stop. When I finally crash, I’ll feel a once familiar feeling. You may not have experienced it but I know it all too well. 

 

“Momma,

I understand why you’re mad
And it hurts to accept what I am
And how I live and what I do
But I’ve been good since Thursday
Yes I’ve been good since Thursday”

Dear mother, I know it breaks your heart to see me like this; this wild, uncontrollable, unhealthy lifestyle that I’ve been living must make you question me, and maybe even yourself from time to time, but I promise you, I’ll be ok. I haven’t felt this good since the last time I was like this.

“So you can watch my love vanish
In a girl with no talent
'Bout to make mula vanish
Call her friend for my friend
And friend’s name’s Lexus”

Watch me as I make my love for lust disappear inside the body of this girl who’s only good at going so. I’m blowing all my money on her, and she brings her girl up for my nigga and we all have a good time.

“I let my niggass test it
Her morals worth a cent
And best believe I already spent it”

My niggas have a taste of her. She isn’t worth must; she isn’t important; she isn’t valuable; she isn’t for the long run; she worth our time alone, and we don’t have much of it to waste. She w=does what she’s good at, and that’s being down on her knees for us.


“My blunt full of B-C
My cup full of Texas
Flown on that O-V-O jet, yeah I said it”

I have a blunt full of Canadian bud and a cup full of hardcore spike. I’m flying on my jet that my brother owns for fun.

“I was born to be reckless
Was forced to make records
So you don’t gotta ask who’s next, who’s next”

I was born into a world where I can act how I please, then pushed into the limelight for my careless ways, that should have left me dead. I’m the biggest come up the world has ever seen and will soon never forget. If you had to stop and ask yourself who the next one will be to become legend, look no further, you’ve found me…


“Saying this ain’t nothing, but it’s all I need
And the peak ain’t reached but the peek is all I feel
And it feels so good
It feels so good
It feels so good
It feels so good

I ain’t scared of the fall
I ain’t scared of the fall
I ain’t scared of the fall
I’ve felt the ground before
I’ve felt the ground before
I’ve felt the ground before

And I ain’t scared of the fall

X-O, X-O, X-O, X-O”
