NEW VIDEO: “Goofy & Tipsy Messes In Amsterdam” - had the BEST time in amsterdam with all my youtube friends… speaking of which, reblog with your fav youtuber cameo!! there were SO MANY that were part of my adventures :]
So Lu and I went to watch Rogue One again today, and sitting in the row in front of us was this lesbian couple and their two sons. The younger son, who looked about 6 or 7 (although obviously it was pretty dark so I couldn’t be sure), talked throughout the entire film, and usually this would be annoying, right? Not this little guy. He was such a huge Star Wars nerd. He kept explaining things to his mum so that she’d understand what was going on, and it was so sweet??
(By the by, RO spoilers ahead)
He’d be like “That’s the Death Star. That’s important, remember that.” Or “That’s Tarkin!!! He’s a baddy.” But he also had the greatest reactions to things, like when the rebels all agreed to fly to Scarif he shouted “THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER” and he actually fist pumped the air when C-3PO and R2 had their cameo. Like all kids, though, there were a few things that went over his head and he would loudly ask if one of his mothers would explain what was going on. My favourite of these moments was when he asked if Baze was sad about Chirrut’s death because Chirrut was his boyfriend.
But I think my overall favourite point was when Krennic flew into Mustafar, and upon seeing the familiar streams of lava this boy leaned over and said to his mum: “This is where Anakin Skywalker and Obi-wan Kenobi had a fight because Anakin had gone to the dark side, and Obi-wan Kenobi said he loved Anakin but Anakin didn’t say it back so he chopped all his legs off.”
Like, you’re not wrong, kid.
On the way out of the cinema I could still hear him babbling excitedly about Princess Leia and how cool he thought she was, and how he wanted to watch A New Hope when they got home, and how much he’d loved the film. It was so sweet. I enjoyed the film ten times more than I would have done if that boy hadn’t been there, I’m sure. Honestly, god bless that gay Star Wars family.
Roman Gold Ring with Onyx Cameo, 3rd-4th Century AD
A gold ring with onyx cameo with bust of woman with hair pulled back into a bun.
Cameos first became popular during the Hellenistic period and continued to flourish under the Roman Empire with a mixture of images mostly comprising religious symbolism or busts of private individuals and members of the Imperial family. Cameos were produced with the same basic tools and techniques as intaglios, though inverted, that is to say by cutting away excess stone around the image to create a raised relief. The time and effort needed to carve a cameo is considerably greater than that required to produce an intaglio, not just because more stone must be cut away but also in fashioning a cameo in relief there is considerably less surface contact between the rotating circular tool and the convex surface of the gem.
This has been sitting in my ask for a few weeks. I apologize for
not being able to write this anytime sooner but you know, college sucks.
Please, don’t feel like I’m ignoring you, I promise I’ll be finishing
everything I’ve got left.
Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it. Please let me know if you don’t like it, or if you think the smut part wasn’t right. I don’t usually write smut that’s “explicit” but I want to give it a try, and I need to know what direction to take.
“What the fuck happened to your face?” you asked, bewildered.
now, love.” Harry warned you, avoiding your eyes for all he’s worth.
Even if he had succeeded, you had already seen it. His face was a mess,
his hair was disheveled and he had an horrendous purple eye.
“’Not now’? The fuck is wrong with you! You’re not pulling that ‘not now, love’ when your face looks like shit!”
to the last, aren’t you?” He asked, raising his bloody eyebrow with a
hint of annoyance in his gaze, only to be replaced by a look of pain.
Hi! Can you do RFA reacting to MC on her period/trying to hide her period from them? Thank youuu!
Oh my gosh periods are the absolute worst. This one was still a lot of fun to write so thank you for requesting it! I hope that you like it!! :3
You and Yoosung both finally had a day off together and deiced to sleep in
You woke up before Yoosung and felt his arms wrapped around you and you snuggled into his chest
But you felt something wet down by your legs and carefully moved the blanket away to see that your period had started and bled through your sleep pants onto the bed sheets
Completely embarrassed, you shook Yoosung violently telling him to get out of bed
“Wah what’s going on MC?” A very confused and sleepy Yoosung asked as you kicked him out of the bed
You didn’t respond, only blushing bright red as you carefully moved the blankets so he couldn’t see the mess
But Yoosung caught a glimpse of bright red blood on the sheets and his eyes went wide
“MC are you okay?! Did you hurt yourself?! Should I call a doctor?!” Yoosung asked as he started panicking
You sighed saying “I’m okay Yoosung, my period just started. Sorry about the sheets, I’ll clean them up right away.”
As you tried walking away, Yoosung grabbed your arm and hugged you, rubbing your lower stomach
His mother and sister made him learn about how much period cramps could hurt and how women could become very emotional
So to your surprise, Yoosung knew exactly what to do and treated you like a princess
Yoosung threw the dirty sheet into the washer and quickly put a new one on so that you could lay down
He told you that he had to make a quick stop at the store and when he came back, he had pads and tampons, heating pads, your favorite snack foods, and a new movie for the two of you to watch
Yoosung took such good care of you that there was hardly any pain and lots of comfort, making you not worry about period pains ever again
The two of you decided to go on a date night to see a movie that Zen made a cameo in
You two were able to snag the last two tickets, much to Zen’s delight
Just as the two of you were about to enter the theater, you felt something off
You told Zen that you had to use the bathroom quickly and when you got there, you found out that your period had started
The emotions were already getting to you as you felt yourself start to tear up
You left the bathroom trying to think of an excuse for only you to head home so Zen could enjoy the movie
As soon as Zen saw you, he noticed something was off and asked “What’s wrong babe?”
You burst out in tears and whispered to him that your period has started
Zen immediately goes into protective boyfriend mode and walks behind you so no one can see any blood coming through as he leads you to the car
The entire ride home you were crying and told Zen between sobs “I-I’m so sorry that I ruined our date night.”
He honestly couldn’t believe that you could become so emotional just because of your period but he shushed you saying “It’s no problem at all MC. You can’t control it and we can have our own fun date night together at home.”
Zen carried you inside bridal style and helped you clean up then laid you on the bed as he got you some pain medication
You were completely exhausted and Zen completely understood so the two of you ended up cuddling for the rest of the night until the two of you fell asleep
When you woke up the next morning, you found Zen in the kitchen making breakfast a a bouquet of your favorite flowers on the table along with some heating pads
Zen really was the best boyfriend ever
The two of you went to a fancy restaurant to celebrate your anniversary
It was the first time either of you were able to go to such a high-end place so it was an even more special night
You and Jaehee were killing it in your brand new dresses and you both looked like goddesses
But when the two of you were seated at your table, you felt what you only assumed was your period start
Panic built up inside of you, it was such a special night and you didn’t want your period to ruin it for Jaehee
So you sucked it up and decided to pretend like nothing was wrong
But you and Jaehee were together for a reason because she knew within a couple of minutes that something was up
You were getting increasing hot to the point of sweat dripping down from your forehead and the cramps started to come
When Jaehee saw you wince in pain and hold your stomach, she knew that your period started
So Jaehee helped you up and lead you back to the car while you apologized profusely
When you two got home, you nervously asked her “Was I really that obvious Jaehee?” as you got out of your dress and into more comfort clothing
Jaehee giggled and made you lay down as she got you a heating pad and said “Sort of. But what you had were pretty similar to my own period symptoms so I knew. And don’t worry about tonight, I’m always happy as long as I’m with you MC.”
You smiled gratefully at your amazing girlfriend The two of you spent the rest of the night cuddling and watching Zen’s musicals on DVD
You both ended up falling asleep in each other’s arms, with you feeling a lot less pain thanks to Jaehee
You were so grateful that you had someone else who understood the struggle of having your period and you made a mental note to take extra good care of Jaehee when hers started
You had convinced Jumin to go out on a simply yet fun ‘commoners’ date with you
The two of you went to a local park and packed a picnic and the day had been going well, you and Jumin talked about your future together, stared at the clouds, and even made him laugh at a couple of your jokes
Jumin seemed to be having such a good time that you felt like nothing could possible ruin your mood
But Mother Nature had different plans
You were laughing at one of Jumin’s attempts to make a joke when you felt your period start
To make matters worse, you were wearing a light colored dress making the blood stand out on the back of your dress Jumin noticed you looking uncomfortable and asked what was wrong
“My um period started Jumin.” You said awkwardly to Jumin You attempted to stand up but you could already feel the cramps coming on
Jumin noticed the back of your dress was staining with blood so he quickly wrapped his jacket around your waist to hide it and walked you over to Driver Kim
He had never dealt with women on their period before but all Jumin knew was that you looked like you were in pain and he needed to stop it
So when the two of you got back to the penthouse, Jumin cleaned you up and made you lay down in bed with him calling out to the chef to make your favorite meal
He laid down next to you and gently rubbed where your cramps were hurting telling you sweet words of encouragement to try and help you feel better
You eventually fell asleep and woke up a couple of hours later to see Jumin curled up next to you sleeping
The cramps were almost completely gone so you settled yourself back into Jumin’s arms
For a guy who’s never experienced a girl with her period before, Jumin sure knew what he was doing
Seven had been working hard the past couple of days making you extremely bored
You were laying on the couch, mindlessly playing on your phone when you felt something seep through your pants
You groaned as you saw that your period had started
Luckily none of the blood had gotten on the couch so you quickly passed Seven’s work room in order to get a new pair of pants
You were in the bathroom trying to clean the blood out of your pants when you heard the door open
“Aw my poor MC’s period started. Come on I’ll clean those up later, you need to rest now!” Seven said as he dragged you into the bedroom
“But how did you know Saeyoung? I’m sorry I know that you’re busy working and it’s so embarrassing.“ You said as Seven tucked the blankets around you
He smiled and kissed your forehead saying “I’m the Defender of Justice MC! I know everything! But seriously I keep track of your cycle so I always know when you’re due to start.”
Seven got you a heating pad and laid down next to you rubbing your back and whispering how much he loved you
You fell asleep to Seven’s loving words and woke up the next morning to find a Seven had made you a messy cake saying ‘I love you’ on it as well as some of your favorite snacks and more heating pads
You were honestly so grateful for him and gave him a huge hug when you saw him
Seven smiled telling you that you deserved it and how he would take good care of you until your period was over
“Hey MC quick question, I never looked it up or anything but a period is when you pee blood right?” Seven asked as you were about to cut into the cake
Seven was lucky that you loved him and that you weren’t too emotional at that point to punch him
First up, the music.
I enjoyed the music in this film, it was very fitting, with awesome songs in fight scenes, and mellow songs in calm scenes. It just fit the mood so well. While I admit it’s not as memorable as the first one, because, come on, you can’t top Hooked on a Feeling, it still does have its moments like Mr. Blue Sky, Brandy, Surrender, etc. Overall, 4.8/5.
Next, the characters. Spoilers follow, you’ve been warned.
Okay, I love, love, love Baby Groot. He’s adorable in every way and should be protected forever. And Teen Groot is even better.
Space Dads and Mom are great too. They each get their own character development, and I love that. Rocket learns he’s a bit like Yondu, Drax is teaching Mantis how to adapt to society, using things he learned from his family, Gamora lets go of her rivalry with Nebula, and Peter…
Oh, Peter. You poor guy. Your mom was killed by your blood father who is evil and your surrogate father was protecting you all along. And you lost 2 dads in not even 10 minutes. Dang. That hurts.
And as for Yondu, whoops, I mean Mary Poppins, what a badass. He stole his scenes in the movie, being a great dose of sorrow and laughter. I enjoyed his performance here, and it’s a shame we won’t see him again.
Nebula’s already cool, so not much to say about her. I’m glad she’s not fighting with her sister and out to kill Space God with a Capital G.
As for Ego, he’s an irredeemable jackass who deserved everything he got to him. End of discussion. I liked the build-up to the reveal, though.
Overall, for the characters, 10/5.
Next, my favourite scenes.
Can I not just say the whole movie? I mean, each scene is great in its own way. Action, drama, laughter, it’s just so perfectly executed. I enjoyed the credits, both opening and ending, they were just so fun. But I really enjoyed the Ravager Funeral scene. It’s just so beautiful, and heartbreaking, and UUUUGGGGHHHHH SO GOOOOOOOOOD.
The movie as a whole? (Ha, a-hole! :P)
James Gunn, you genius. You absolute sheer fucking genius. You’ve done it again. There are so many comic book and movie references, callbacks, continuity nods, it’s literally a perfect Marvel sequel. Stan Lee’s cameo was great, the 5 end credits scenes were great, Howard the Duck deserves a second chance at a movie, and I can’t wait for Volume 3.
I cannot recommend this movie enough. It’s so good the word good can’t describe it anymore. Go watch it!
PS: Show of hands, who cried at Mary Poppins’ death? Because I know I’m not the only one who did.
In this week’s episode of “Underground,” fans were treated to a flashback sequence that featured none other than Academy Award and Emmy nominee Angela Bassett, playing the mother of Ernestine. So how did Bassett end up on the WGN America drama? All it took was a call from series executive producer and director Anthony Hemingway.
“The role was written with Angela in mind,” Hemingway told Variety. “Angela has been a fan of the show since day one. She comes to our premieres and events, and offers a lot of support. And I’m a friend of the family, her and Courtney B. Vance. It was easy to make the connection and make the call and present to her what this character was and why we saw her as this character. She brings so much gravitas and strength to any role that she does. It was just the right choice.” Hemingway also said that “everyone” came out the day Bassett was on set to watch her work.
The cameras, the screaming when people recognised you, everything.
You were born in Riverdale, but moved to New York with your family where you were given amazing opportunities to act, you loved acting, you started off doing plays, then commercials, a few cameos on tv shows, you were just starting out as an actress but people started to recognise you, you couldn’t handle it all so fast so your parents let you take a break for the summer and go to your grandparents house in Riverdale.
Saw GOTG2 last night and I give it an A-. It’s fun, filled with action, lots of laughs, and some tug on your heartstrings moments. Great acting by the primaries … Dave Bautista is great as clueless, caring Drax … and the new characters are perfection. I highly recommend seeing it in a theatre, 3D if you can swing the cost.
Why, then, the A-? The movie suffers a little from being stuffed too full of easter eggs and cameos (I loved all of them, but there were a LOT), and the soundtrack isn’t as spot on as the first one was. It could have been trimmed more in a few places to make it tighter, and I really couldn’t tell the Ravagers apart except for the main handful.
Spoilers, as always, below the cut with my extended review.
HI, I just wanted to say you have a great site. I noticed you put up a number of art drawings and I am not sure if you have looked here but have you seen Matt Rhodes Concept Art for for Dragon Age? It has some great official concept art from Dragon Age 2 including Fenris and Merril. I would love to hear some of your comments on this. The first part is about Mass Effect but halfway down is about Dragon Age. Thanks again.
