sport-movie

also like 10-15 years from now I hope someone makes one of those inspirational sports movies except it’s a 50 year old woman who wants to play competitive online games and everyone tells her she can’t because she’s too old, her reflexes are too slow, etc, and she gets this grizzled trainer except they’re a 19 year old kid who had a promising career until carpal tunnel syndrome ruined their chances of becoming the world champion so they train her and she fuckin wins, the end. movie of the year.

Movistar asked some riders about their favorite songs…

19. One place you’ve never been that you want to visit? Tokyo.

20. First concert you ever attended? Spice Girls

Few weeks ago I ran into this thing at the movie theater. And I wondered what it was. There was no name, there was no plaque, there was no identifier around it. Just a strange skeleton in the middle of a shared foyer of a movie theater, sports venue, bowling hall and gym. What was this strange skeleton that had nothing that said what it was, that was so proudly on display for no apparent reason? What is the meaning behind a giant rodent-like creature to eat it’s own tail? Or was it just a very expensive promotion of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them?

Then the answer came on my tumblr dashboard in a form of a freezeframe on a video as I was scrolling down.

It’s a prop from Lazytown.

[Revamped] About Sheet

This is a better organized version of the initial one I posted several months ago; to see a live example of my about sheet being used, you can view it in its completed entirety on a character account of mine! This about sheet is supposed to be a ‘catch-all’ and cover everything but not be too complex that it’s overwhelming (so it’s the Goldilocks of being just right); things can of course be filled out later, revised and etc… (used and updated however you please). I’d also like to say thank you to all of you that use my about sheet; I’ve been complimented, linked to and mentioned on many occasions by roleplays using my about sheet for a task of theirs and I think that’s really awesome! Thank you to everyone that utilizes it and is able to get the most out of it! Remember, this is tailored to each of your characters and can be adjusted as needed!

i’m gonna be honest growing up i always arbitrarily claimed to dislike things i didnt actually dislike like seasons and ice cream flavors and shit because i was like well most human adults dislike things and it was only recently i was like “i dont fucking hate any of these things”. all seasons r good. all forms of tea and coffee are good. all cheesey sports movies are good. open ur eyes. but mint chocolate chip ice cream actually blows.

There need to be more inspirational marching band movies. They have great potential for the inspirational sports movie plot. Just think:

A small town DCI group with a major losing streak gets a young, new, band director fresh out of college. He teaches the band to take pride in themselves and their music. Together with a bunch of his friends from college, he helps the band create a new identity for themselves and they go and melt faces with their music.

Only, before going to championships, tragedy strikes. Somebody, dies, or quits, or there’s some sort of betrayal. The band has to overcome it and become stronger as they learn how to perform with the same passion that they have when they’re happy as when they’re sad.

Another subplot could be that the band director or drum major is having trouble working up the confidence to propose to his longtime girlfriend. As the band goes on a journey of self discovery, so do they. At the very end, after winning the championship, they finally work of the courage to propose.

“We fly like blackbirds through the orange groves, floating on a warm wind. When we run, we own the earth. The land is ours. We speak the birds’ language. Not immigrant no more. No stupid Mexicans. When we run, our spirits fly. We speak to the gods. When we run, we are the gods.”

McFarland, USA (2015) dir. Niki Caro

ramon-draws  asked:

Have you been at PAX before this year?

I’ve never been to any con in my life ever! :o

And now I’m sporting a movie-trailer sore throat and a 38.9 degree fever so I guess I did it right! :P

Automated Responses

So, I’m a bit of a nerd. I admit it. When I first got into this sugaring thing several years ago, I was lost. I stumbled around, was taken advantage of several times, I had lots of dates blow up in my face (pun intended). And I really got nothing out of it. So, this second time around, I wanted to make sure I didn’t waste my time.

My solution? READ
I purchased lots of books (on my Kindle) on sugar babying (if that’s a verb). Taylor B. Jones’s book. The Liedra Lawson book (even though it’s now laughably dated). The Ho Tactics book (personal favorite). Among others. I read this shit out of these last summer and go back to them frequently.

And one of my favorite tips from all of them, specifically Taylor’s book, is automated responses.

Before, I used to spend so much damn time answering messages and talking all about myself when most men would NEVER put that much effort into responding to me. It was exhausting! It made searching for a sugar daddy even more of a job than it already felt like. I was not having it. So, I came up with a system.

1) On my profile, I specifically state that men must a) tell me their name, b) must share their private photos with me before requesting mine, c) must state why they think we’d be a good match based on my profile. If they do not do all three, I simply send back a message stating “Hi __blank___. Please see my profile for tips on messaging me and requesting my private photos. Thank you and have a happy __whateverdayitis___.” That is #AutomatedResponse1.

2) When they do follow instructions –Keep in mind, those that don’t, will NOT get a response from me. If they won’t take the time to do three simple things, I know they won’t take the time to be good SDs. Very easy way to weed out fakes! –anyway, I respond with a more lengthy automated message. A) I tell them thank you for their message. B) I write something person from their profile that caught my attention. C) Then I ask 5 questions that I expect them to answer. My questions are i) what are they looking for in a relationship/how many arrangements have they had? ii) what’s they’re relationship status. iii) why did they want a sugar baby in the first place iv) what are their likes -sports, movies, food, etc.. And v) what is their budget for an arrangement. After all, if their budget is too low, then I don’t want to waste anyone’s time here.

Also note, those men who don’t want to answer question 5 about budgets, have always consistently ended up screwing me over. So now, if they don’t answer or say “Let’s talk about it in person”, I write them off. Fuck anyone who won’t take the time to answer my questions, number one. And number two, if they don’t have a budget in mind or don’t want to tell you what it is, they don’t have one. They just want to fuck you for free. Which I’m not about.

I’ve learned a lot with these automated questions. A guy might seem really nice and then as soon as I send this message, he’ll call me all sorts of names simply for trying to get some basic info from him. Or likewise, a guy will seem on the cheap side but when he answers, will pleasantly surprise me with his ideal arrangement budget. It’s a quick way to get info. I keep these questions in a Google Doc and simply copy and paste them into messages and change only subtle things, depending on what I read in my POTs profile.

I’ve found this really helps streamline the process of messaging guys back and getting as much info with the minimal amount of effort. Please feel free to take my questions! Remember, if he won’t answer the questions, he’s not worth your time!

rocky 1 end

The nerve of people when they suggest the Rocky films are just silly sports B movies. 

These are two of the most powerful scenes ever filmed. 

And I’m still mad Michael B Jordan didn’t get an Oscar nomination. 

AU where instead of the town being obsessed with the high school football team they’re obsessed with the Marching Band.

“It’s your DREAM to be drum major…”
“No dad. It’s yours.”

“HIT THOSE DRILL SETS. FORM THOSE LINES. DAMNIT STEVEN YOU DONT MOVE DURING A GOD DAMN HOLD.”

“This town needs you. You’re the best director to come through here in years. Those kids finally have someone to inspire them.”
