2x01 // 2x09: who’s calling the shots (feat. a very satisfying hair evolution)

Petrus Kiers (5 January 1807, “Het Groeneveld”, near Meppel - 17 November 1875, Amsterdam) was a Dutch painter, graphic artist and photographer. He created portraits, still-lifes and cityscapes, but he is best known for his genre scenes, lit by lamps or candles.

His first lessons were with the landscape painter Douwe de Hoop. From 1825 to 1826, he attended the Rijksakademie. He would continue to work mostly in Amsterdam but, beginning in the 1860s, also worked in Drenthe, especially in Assen.
In 1837, he married the painter Elisabeth Alida Haanen, daughter of the artist Casparis Haanen. Their son, George (1838-1916) became a marine artist and their daughter, Catharina (1839-1930), was a still-life painter. Elisabeth died in 1845 and he remarried in 1850, having two more children.
In 1841, he won a silver medal in a competition held by the Felix Meritis Society. He was a member of Arti et Amicitiae and, in 1856, he was appointed a member of the Rijksakademie. He exhibited widely, including shows in Paris and New York. Maria Vos was among his best-known students.
He also gained a reputation as a pioneering photographer. For several years he was a partner in a photography studio with Johann Benjamin Snoek (1816-1864). Later, he had his own studio in Assen.

TV LINE’S PERFORMERS OF THE WEEK

Honorable mention - Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker

“Before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. thrust us into the far-out Framework, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker had us rapt with an all-too-real, six-minute face-off between Simmons and Fitz, where they grappled with the question of which of them was an LMD. With Jemma training a gun on her possibly compromised lover, the pair’s performance was incredible in that no matter the outcome, it would simultaneously be totally logical and completely astonishing. While Henstridge toggled between tears and intensity, De Caestecker crushed us by switching from an anguished Fitz, doubling over as he slashed his wrist, to an ice-cold android, plunging a knife into his accuser. Capping the encounter was a tussle in which Simmons just barely ignored the plaintive cries of her true love’s doppelganger as she stabbed him, again and again, while he adopted the stone-faced stare of heartless LMD. Simply chilling.”

From Laito’s Dark Prologue, I present one of the best scenes in the game.

Ayato: ――oi, Reiji! You bastard, you ate my takoyaki, didn’t you!

Reiji: Haa? Are you referring to me? Please don’t make such jokes. Do you really believe that I would eat such a thing?

Ayato: Shut up—! Who ate it, then? A~ah? Kanato! Was it you?

Yui: …………

Yui: (E-even though it’s the middle of the night, they’re so noisy!)

Yui: ……if it’s like this, I’ll just have to put my head under my pillow……

Shu: ――oi, that self-important person over there. Quiet down a bit…… I can’t take a nap like this.

Ayato: A~ah? Are you calling me self-important?

Subaru: More like…… Is there anybody around who’s more self-important than you? I don’t think so. 

Ayato: Dammit, this brat. [Saying that] even though you’re just a kid. Aah……! Could it be that you’re the one who ate my takoyaki?

Subaru: Has your damn brain overheated? You think I’d eat your takoyaki? HA! Don’t make me laugh.

Yui: Uuーーーーー……so noisy! I can’t sleep!!

Yui: (Arguing over takoyaki, are these people really vampires?)

Yui: (In the first place, can vampires even eat things like takoyaki?)
