Dan and Phil react to Teens React to Dan and Phil

Sometimes I’ll randomly think about the People Mag interview and how Hoseok was voted the best singer of the rappers, and Yoongi’s immediate reaction was to say, “Just as expected from the main vocal of Sope”, and how Hobi sang “Hold On We’re Going Home” so beautifully that my breath caught

Favorite TF Moments: Verity Finding Megatron

From Transformers: Infiltration

I remember the first time I read this, and being as stunned as Verity when Megatron showed up. Verity’s reaction–there was a weight to it all. This is Verity, who’s been running around with Hunter and Jimmy and the rest of the Autobots. She’s been in firefights, and all this craziness–handling it more or less fine and totally on board to help out the ‘Bots–and then Megatron just standing there floors her into shock. He’s that intimidating.

And then Megatron just turns his head away, like she’s nothing–because she is nothing to him.

I don’t know. It’s one of my favorite moments in the IDW Run. I love it.

Moment in time: Feb. 28, 1996 – Alanis Morissette Cleans Up at the Grammys
Alanis Morissette was only 21 when she released Jagged Little Pill, her third studio album and first to be released internationally. The mix of pop and angst on songs like ‘Ironic’ and 'You Oughta Know’ made it a phenomenon. It sold millions of copies (more than 33 million to date), reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and prompted widespread debate over the definition of the word “ironic.” The album was nominated for nine Grammy awards and won four, including best rock song, best female vocal performance and best rock album. The Ottawa-born artist also beat out Pearl Jam, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson and Joan Osborne to win album of the year, making her the youngest ever to win that award until Taylor Swift unseated her in 2010. - Dave McGinn

So my sister just finished twist and shout.

My sister bursts into my room with tears down her face and shouts “HOW COULD YOU?” So at this moment in time I’m just thinking ‘Bitch…tf’. After about 10 seconds of silent she just growls and goes, “WHY DID YOU LET ME READ TWIST AND SHOUT?!” As soon as the words leave her mouth I’m on the floor in tears, laughing. So like the great older sister I am I stand up, look her straight in the eye and go, “But can you dig Elvis?” And that’s the story of how I broke my nose.

Moment in time: Sept. 10, 1993 - The X-Files premieres on prime-time TV
The show that launched a thousand conspiracy theories began with a scene of a terrified teenager running through the woods. As conceived by relative TV neophyte, Chris Carter (his previous job was editor of Surfing Magazine), The X-Files lent instant - if loosely constructed - validity to the possible existence of aliens, vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters and creepy phenomena previously confined to pulp magazines. Filmed in Vancouver, the opener introduced Gillian Anderson as FBI agent and skeptic Dana Scully and David Duchovny as her partner, Fox Mulder, whose unwavering belief in the paranormal was captured in his nickname: “Spooky.” Over nine seasons, The X-Files collected three Emmys. Perhaps more important, the show slyly imparted a message that still holds with today’s viewers: Trust no one. – Andrew Ryan
Notes - 9 seasons with 202 episodes
- Music: Mark Snow
- first 5 seasons were filmed in Vancouver Canada
- the last four were filmed in Los Angeles
- length: only 44 minutes per episode = 8888 minutes or 148.13 hours total.
- Original Run: September 10, 1993 – May 19, 2002
- first episode was written by Chris Carter and had 12 million USA viewers

Moment in time: Feb. 18, 1885, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn published in America – After one of the largest literary publicity campaigns to date, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn appeared in print in America. Mark Twain’s tale of two runaways searching for freedom polarized opinion from the get-go. Reviewers variously accused Twain of hackwork, genius and torture. Within a month, the book had been banned by a Concord, Mass., library for its “immoral tone” and rough language (Twain credited that action with boosting sales). Today, Huck remains among the most challenged books in U.S. history - perhaps to be expected for a work that raises issues of slavery, religion and society at large. Readers of the novel must confront these questions, and that, more than anything, is what makes the book a true classic. - Kate Hopwood

—-
Note: To bolster his authority and secure the position of the crown, James launched pre-emptive attacks on some of his nobles beginning in 1425 with his close kinsmen the Albany Stewarts resulting in the execution of Duke Murdoch and his sons. In 1428 James detained Alexander, Lord of the Isles, while attending a parliament in Inverness. Archibald, 5th Earl of Douglas, was arrested in 1431, followed by George, Earl of March, in 1434. The plight of the ransom hostages held in England was ignored and the repayment money was diverted into the construction of Linlithgow Palace and other grandiose schemes.
In August 1436, James failed humiliatingly in his siege of the English held Roxburgh Castle and then faced an ineffective attempt by Sir Robert Graham to arrest him at a general council. James was murdered at Perth on the night of 20/21 February 1437 in a failed coup by his uncle and former ally Walter Stewart, Earl of Atholl. Queen Joan, although wounded, managed to evade the attackers and was eventually reunited with her son James II in Edinburgh Castle.
