Since we’re on the topic of 1997 nostalgia, let’s also talk about how 1997 was the year when Gillian Anderson became the first actress in television history to win the Emmy, the Golden Globe, and the SAG Award for the same role.

The Malec wedding kiss is my all time favorite scene that I have ever witnessed on television. Ever.

I can’t believe this moment of genius was ten years ago.

The greatest Eurovision moment of all time.

Hov has always done it for the culture. Roc-A-Fella Records through to Roc Nation. The ever-gracious JAY Z just declared his entry into the Songwriters Hall of Fame a win for US.


Side note: Did you know he had been considered for nomination numerous times? But, as the SHoF President put it in an interview with the New York Times earlier today, “our board and community wasn’t ready.” Hov has 21 Grammys, the most #1 albums for a solo artist ever, six classic albums, three albums on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All-Time,” and is a 20-year Billboard record setter and breaker. But they weren’t ready to accept rap music as a legitimate form of musical expression. Today WE won.

anonymous asked:

Fuck yourself, Marco Asensio is better than Messi was and he's going to be better than messsi is, sit down

I’m so confused right now, what even the hell is this,,,,,,

You want to talk about Messi and what he achived by the age of 21? okay, let’s talk about Leo then.

While Barcelona began a gradual decline, the 19-year-old Messi established himself as one of the best players in the world during the 2006–07 campaign. Already an idol to the culés, the club’s supporters, he scored 17 goals in 36 games across all competitions (note, that he’s 19 years old here)

On 10 March 2007, he scored his first hat-trick in a Clásico, the first player to do so in 12 years. Again, note that he’s only 19 years old and let me show you Madrid’s starting lineup.

Impressive to score a hattrick against that team huh.

To continue: He was frequently compared to compatriot Diego Maradona, Messi proved their similarity when he nearly replicated Maradona’s two most famous goals in the span of three (!!!) weeks.

During a Copa del Rey semi-final against Getafe on 18 April, he scored a goal remarkably similar to Maradona’s goal in the quarter-finals of the 1986 FIFA World Cup, known as the Goal of the Century. Messi collected the ball on the right side near the halfway line, ran 60 metres (200 ft), and beat five defenders before scoring with an angled finish, just as Maradona had done. 

We all know that goal, don’t we?

but let’s go on.

After Ronaldinho lost form, Messi became Barça’s new star player at only 20 years old, receiving the nickname “Messiah” from the Spanish media. Note his age if you need.

His efforts in 2007 also earned him award recognition; journalists voted him the third-best player of the year for the Ballon d'Or, behind Kaká while international managers and national team captains voted him second for the FIFA World Player of the Year award, again behind Kaká.

In his first uninterrupted campaign, the 2008–09 season, he scored 38 goals in 51 games, contributing alongside Eto'o and winger Thierry Henry to a total of 100 goals in all competitions, a record at the time for the club.

During the Clásico on 2 May 2009 he assisted with a chip his side’s first goal and scored twice to end the match in an emphatic 6–2 victory, the team’s greatest-ever score at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

And to end this- At 22 years old, Messi won the Ballon d'Or and the FIFA World Player of the Year award, both times by the greatest voting margin in each trophy’s history.

Asensio reaching all of this by his next birthday? Unlikely.

You can take several seats. Think before you compare.
