the photo reel

And another thing about this photo reel

The immediate reasons to be fucking oBSESSED are obvious but do you know what else really has me emotional about it? 

Yuuri’s confidence. His carefree attitude. He’s totally taking the lead here! Like seeing this is WILD for me, especially knowing this happened BEFORE THE EVENTS of this series. I love this! I can’t get enough of this and I want more (hence my other post lol). LOOK AT HIM. And just take away the obvious perfection of this victuuri content and think about Yuuri as a character. 

Yes, he’s drunk, but listen drinking doesn’t give you qualities and skills you weren’t already capable of. I’m p sure all of them were a little tipsy :p.  All it does it lower your inhibitions and amplify certain aspects of you that already exist. Drunk Yuuri is still Yuuri. THIS IS REALLY YUURI. He didn’t just suddenly learn how to pole dance and break dance and do all these holds. And we’ve seen him pull of his eros sober. It was something all his own and it was so surprising at the time but now? Now it makes perfect sense in the best way. 

I really feel like the Yuuri in these camera roll scenes is significantly real and seeing him so confident and in the spotlight is like WOW. My heart breaks a little because HE DOESN’T REMEMBER. Boy has to know and understand that he captured everyone’s heart that night. He’s a goddamn shooting star. As a character he’s a triumph, a masterpiece. He’s so multifaceted and honestly seeing his journey to this point in his career was already good enough. 

But they didn’t stop there! They were like “Not only is Yuuri a badass now, he was ALWAYS A BADASS. Victor didn’t change him at all. This wasn’t what we thought it was going to be at first AT ALL. It seemed like Victor was spicing up Yuuri’s life and bringing out all these NEW sides of him. ALL LIES. Yuuri was the one spicing up Vitya’s life. EVERYONE’S lives even! Who knows what the atmosphere between all of them was like before this? Like honestly? I bet they were all being super stuffy and formal and not all that chummy like they are now and their closeness now is partially thanks to this cute boy. I love Yuuri so much like :’) Just….I just need a moment. *ahem* 

OKAY but do y’all UNDERSTAND like he was upstaging CHRISTOPHE !!! 

he was DANCE BATTLING YURIO. YURIO you guys. Since when has this kid been a socialite? Letting loose at parties?! WHAT? This is the power of our pork cutlet king

this was ALL before the main events in the series like…I’m dumbfounded right now.

Yuri was so timid and insecure in the first episode. And we just rolled with that. We thought this was about a blossoming skater trying to find his footing again. We thought it was about Victor helping him learn to be confident.

But nah. Yuuri had us fucking fooled. This man is a showstopper. This guy captivated the greatest skater on the scene, he completely stole the show. He just hit a rough spot, honestly.  

Imagine if someone tried to tell us Yuuri Katsuki knew how to do pole! Or breakdance! Or would hold his idol Victor in a saucy tango pose? 

We’d all be like HA! Okay~ :p 

We thought Victor was going to be the seductive one. 

Mann the production team must have been laughing at all of us this whole time. They were sitting on this from DAY ONE. 

We got played in the best way. Honestly? Standing ovation. This is how it’s done. Other studios better step up because YOI raised the bar beyond our wildest dreams.

There’s a mall close to where I live that isn’t exactly dying, but isn’t exactly thriving, either. There are several vacant shops that have been sitting empty for a while, but the eeriest part of the whole place is this wing, which is completely empty apart from a single juice and smoothie place. People still use it as an access point to get into the mall from the street, but all the units are completely abandoned.

Guys i’m gonna need another photo reel ending in YOI

I think my favorite thing about the ending of episode 10 is that all of it reminds me of one of those super cliche endings in a rom-com. First, we have the song- it just sounds like one of those super catchy songs they put at the end of those cheesy movies. And then of course the photos that are reeled through the credits (that are usually from a wedding reception) except this is a skating banquet with a stripper’s pole, but it might as well be a wedding reception tbh. 

BUT THE BEST PART, is that this ending reel in episode 10 doesn’t show the end of a rom-com

It shows the beginning  

And then the show was never the same ever again.

The 100 best footballers in the world 2016 – The Guardian - No. 1 Cristiano Ronaldo
By Guardian sport

Led by Hernán Crespo, Faustino Asprilla and Javier Zanetti, a panel of 124 experts from 45 nations compiled a countdown of the greatest male players on the planet

Cristiano was voted No.1 by 63 experts, Messi only by 30.
(full list)

It is a measure of Cristiano Ronaldo’s astonishingly consistent excellence that a year in which he won the Champions League with Real Madrid before captaining Portugal to victory at Euro 2016 is widely considered to have been a quiet one by his own preposterously high standards.

While his apparently insatiable desire to make everything from the most informal dressing-room team photo to the highlight reels of the biggest football spectacles all about him may grate more often than amuse, it is difficult to ignore the reality that football’s most preening showman is rarely found wanting … even on the rare occasions he is found wanting.

Having failed to score in the Champions League final, he stepped up to fire home the decisive spot-kick in the shootout.

After limping off in the first half of Portugal’s win over France in the Euro 2016 decider, he appointed himself de facto coach to roar, gesticulate and will his less talented team-mates to victory against the hosts.

The No1 choice of just over half of our 122 judges, this was not one of Ronaldo’s better years and he has still managed to end it with his fourth Ballon d'Or award, almost a decade after being presented with his first.

👏 Another day, another award. Congratulations, Cristiano! 👏

Some dudes on the bus decided to be pricks because I was openly using hand sanitiser on my jacket after an OCD moment (and they subsequently acted funny because I wasn’t talking to them as I knew they were the types to mess around). They even asked me to do it again but with their cameras out like I’m some brainless doofus (who wants to bet they were gonna make some LEL EPIC CRINGE AUTISTIC WEIRDO ACTS *slur of choice* photo reel or video? :V). One of the dudes even said I was acting paranoid and I should just chill or some shit, like people don’t have triggers or reasons to be anxious?

…hooray for experiencing ableist harassment on public transport, I guess?

“Tyler?”
“Yeah?”
“I need to ask you the most important question I can ask someone.”
“Okay..?”
“Will you.. *drops to one knee, presents bottle* share a coke with me?”

Usually I don’t tend to photograph graffiti when urban exploring, but these phrases really stood out. Taken on a return visit to Camelot Theme Park in England – happy to say I managed to get into this place long enough to take pictures this time, though it did end with a pretty intense chase through the park thanks to security!
