the second shooter

I just wanna say that while Lance has a big ol’ starry-eyed crush on Shiro, Shiro just absolutely falls head over heels in love with Lance. He can hardly believe how happy Lance can make him just giving him a smile. If Shiro kept a diary it would be all about how he kept thinking about Lance and all the questions he wants answers to like ‘how can he be so perfect?’ and ‘does he like just laying in bed and kissing? Because I think he’d be amazing at it’.

At one point Shiro has to turn away mid-conversation because Lance said something nice about him and he couldn’t stop smiling and he was so red.

My Fellow Reylos - here ye', here ye'

Did you know that on top of bribing Lucasfilm to change their storyline so that Reylo becomes canon, that:

1.) The studio that the moon landing was staged in was owned by a Reylo.
2.) A Reylo was the second shooter on the Grassy Knoll the day President Kennedy was shot.
3.) Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen is a Reylo is plotting with the illuminati (who are also all Reylos) to establish the New World Order.
4.) The cornfield that Aliens will land in when they invade Earth is maintained by a Reylo.

PLL 7x11 Playtime - (long) thoughts

Overall, for a premiere episode, it was slightly underwhelming in the sense that it doesn’t justify the appearances on Ellen, GMA, Facebook lives, etc. But as a general episode of PLL, it was honestly great. Like I’ve always said, season 7’s episodes are incomparable to season 6 which was a total flop.

I am OBSESSED with this board game! What a brilliant idea for the reveal of the endgame. If every episode is structured by a couple moves on the game plus (somewhat interesting) filler, they’ve got a recipe for success.

The board game is so high tech, which unfortunately reminds me of LucAs. I hope not, but it’s likely. The board in general is great. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the tasks are.

Whoever wrote the episode, kudos to you. This episode had some of the best writing. Forget plot progression, answers, and all that good stuff. I’m talking actual writing. The words and dialogue between characters. Holden’s comment about having a heart attack was a nice touch for long time fans and Veronica and Spencer’s scenes were tragically beautiful. “What did she tell you?” and “what do you think she told me?” - and all those comments about Veronica still being Spencer’s mother at heart; and Mona saying “too bad about Noel. Not really” (homage to their season 1 relationship) - the writing was overall great.

When I see people complain about getting no answers, I just scroll past it. I’m not going to let unnecessary negativity get in my head. I was actually shocked that Spencer confronted Veronica about this and that was an appropriate amount of answers for one episode. I’ve seen people say that we weren’t told anything we didn’t already know - but I think that’s our theory caps talking. We already knew everything Veronica said (and that there was a second shooter; AD) because we theorised it months ago. Seeing our theories verbalised in the show are probably coming across as if nothing is happening because we’ve “known” for so long. But things WERE answered. What a big moment for the PLL series - Veronica freaking admitted to Spencer not being her daughter!

Oh how could I forget: I GOT IT RIGHT!!! Peter and Mary are Spencer’s parents and Peter got Mary pregnant thinking it was Jessica. SO FAR, ONE THEORY IS CORRECT! Let’s see if I stop there for the rest of the season or if I manage to get anything else right…

(Please don’t forget that there was a 1 week later note on screen. Spencer and Toby didn’t get out of the hospital in all of 3 minutes. People complain over nothing.)

Yvonne will not make it out of that coma, no doubt about it.

During the episode I was kind of frustrated at the amount of time they spent on Mona and Hanna and the fashion thing. But, now typing this, I’m smiling. THEY ARE GOING SOMEWHERE WITH THIS. This fashion thing is just a symbol that the writers are using to show that every time Mona tries to help the girls, she gets treated like shit. Just like when Hanna threw out Mona’s bridal shower card unnecessarily. Also it shows Mona’s power over Hanna. This is just the beginning. This filler is going to blow up into something massive and it will reveal Mona’s true alliances down the line. It may be boring now to watch, but they’re going somewhere with it. Keep an eye on it.

I was shocked that Ezra is still staying with Aria without consideration of the circumstances. I thought Nicole would pose a bigger obstacle.

Holden’s return was too corny. “Oh you work here!?” His scenes were probably the most boring of the episode. Whilst it was absolutely great to see this friendly familiar face, I felt underwhelmed that they spent the highly anticipated return episode talking (very slowly and frustrating) about where they want the reception for the wedding to be. That should’ve been saved for a later episode, if not cut out completely.

Bitchy Ali. Hell yes. Welcome back. Please don’t go away too soon. But I did feel bad for Paige. That was just way too bitchy to bring up Paige’s history in the meeting. No one is the same person they were in high school. Paige should’ve slammed back harder because Ali was the worse person in high school.

I know Emison is endgame but… I do like Paige. Always have. Paige is always right about Ali and I won’t forget the accuracy of what Paige said to Emily last finale: call me when you decide to cut the strings with your puppet master.

ALI MIGHT NOT BE PREGNANT. Don’t forget Sasha said at Paley Fest “well Ali says she is (pregnant)” - she didn’t even let Emily come to her appointment!! She’s hiding something. Every time Paige gets in the way, Ali drops a bomb: a kiss, a “I’m pregnant”, “I’m broke and alone, please stay, don’t go out with Paige,” etc. She might not be pregnant after all.

Detective Furey can get lost. I just don’t like him. Is Tanner coming back? What about Holbrook? I liked them. Shit cops obviously, but they were entertaining characters. I hope they’re back before the end.

What was that tiny jigsaw puzzle piece Spencer got and put under the iPhone in the board game? Is that supposed to reveal a picture or something?

So did AD reveal themselves to Jenna - is that what the final scene was? And duh, the liars really thought Jenna and Noel were AD? They didn’t pause to think “where is the A and D coming from then?” I liked hearing that confirmed out loud though.

Overall - an underwhelming PREMIERE, but a fantastic general PLL episode. They’ve got a great formula for success with this board game. I want the girls to turn on each other (but know that they’re doing it because they’re forced! It won’t ruin the friendship.) I want drama. And despite what anyone says, yes we did get some answers and I can’t wait to see what piece to the puzzle we get next week. Another shoutout to the person who wrote this episode because the Veronica/Spencer/Mary reveal was beautiful.

Remember when I was like “okay I’ll get off my soapbox about Lapis being OP”

well it’s a new day and I’m back again.

Specifically on the topic of: “But Clockie, Lapis’s powers are clearly ruled by water, that’s her thing, so, if you fought her on the moon, without any atmosphere she could pull water from, she’d just be. totally screwed”

My problems with that mostly boil down to: how do we know that’s Lapis’s one and only game plan? Like. Lapis is presented, and framed, repeatedly, as terrifyingly overpowered. The situations that trap her are situations she cannot get out of by destroying everyone present- at least, not without serious undesirable consequences.

We have never seen a desperate Lapis outside of the mirror, which she was physically restrained. So we don’t know how she’d behave in that context- we also don’t know what it takes to get there. We just have the fact that, a certain part of Lapis’s personality suggests she is, at bare minimum, very used to being able to destroy people to the point that even when around people she can’t destroy for other reasons besides “they are too powerful” (see: Jasper) she is not particularly reverent or deferential to them.

There was no second shooter in Quebec city.

The second man who was arrested, a Muslim man named Mohamed, was not a shooter, he was a witness who was mistakenly taken in with the suspect, the sole shooter was a white man, he is a white supremacist, and anti feminist, and a Trump supporter.

Please don’t spread false information to push your Islamophobic agenda. This was an attack on Muslim Canadians, don’t continue topush hate towards them.

It’s no secret Gibbs has always been protective of you, his girlfriend. The fact that you worked with him didn’t make it any better. You have been dating him for four years now and soon it will be five. You and the team were currently making your way to the killers house. Gibbs parked and stepped out of the car in a hurry. You, Tony, McGee, and Bishop followed behind.

“Bishop and Tony around the back, McGee and Y/N with me,” Gibbs stated pulling out his gun. As Bishop and Tony made their way to the back Gibbs banged on the door loudly.

Neuro tech for 20 years. Beth was shot, point blank range, through her frontal lobe, cerebral cortex and exit wound through the occiptal. No human, has ever survived that, ever. 2 lobes destroyed and the brain stem. She bled out. Did you not see her lifeless, colorless body? Given the heat and her size, she's be in rigor mortis before the grave was dug. Do you not think they'd notice? Tara has a concussion. Till you see blown pupils, you dont know how bad it is. Survive 24 hrs, odds are damn ok

Hi neuro tech for twenty years anon. 

I’m not a neuro tech. I’m a law student. I take issue with four of your assertions.

(1) Anyone can look at a chart and see that her brain stem is fine.

(2) In my life as not a neuro tech I’ve read about this woman, maybe you’ve heard of her, she has almost the same injury that you think Beth has, in your expert opinion (sans x-ray and everything, you must be good) except it entered through the back of her skull. I am unsure why you’re unfamiliar with her case, but it’s that kind of mistake that would get you in big trouble if you were a lawyer. I guess neuro techs are allowed to just say shit without being familiar with case law though. Good for you.

(3) We’re on point three and I’m still not a neruo tech, I am, however, a person with a basic understanding of the laws of physics and your use of the words “point blank” with the more arcane definition of “a close shot” is seriously making me roll my eyes, let’s take a look at the alternative and much clearer meaning of “true and clear shot striking its intended target at perfect trajectory”

It was definitely close but it wasn’t a true and clear shot striking its intended target at perfect trajectory. It struck her in the forehead at about a 75 degree angle, unless you think there was a second shooter. Here’s what happens when a bullet hits a human skull (they are very hard, but I guess you ought to know that) at a steep angle -

…if the bullet is fired at an angle or hits a curved portion of the skull, deflection will usually result. In some cases, the bullet will form a wound track as it follows the curved bone, and may even exit without perforating the skull. It is also possible that a bullet piercing the skull will richochet along the inner skull and remain lodged in it. In such instances, bullet-brain interaction is minimised, resulting in minimal brain damage. - Missile Wounds of the Head and Neck by Aarabi and Kaufman

It’s a wound rarely seen off the battlefield, but let’s face it, in the ZA it’s always kind of a battlefield, isn’t it?

(4) It’s a television show, they can do whatever they want.

In closing, I never respond to negative anons, but I made an exception for you, mostly because I just REALLY like talking about the fact that even on the most basic of physical levels, Beth Greene should be alive. I don’t think there was a second shooter. I don’t think the bullet defied the laws of physics. I don’t think the production crew just screwed up. You don’t have to be a neuro tech for twenty years, or a lawyer for no years in order to draw a straight line from Dawn’s gun to the exit wound and see what I’m talking about. It would have been really easy to shoot her through the chin, thus fixing the trajectory, ensuring that she bleed out etc. But they didn’t. They made the very inconvenient point of hitting her in the forehead at this ridiculous angle. I believe there’s a reason for that and I think that reason is her survival. Maybe I’m wrong, and it was just a really embarrassing mistake that the production crew made, but I feel like even the laziest of crew might’ve noticed what they were rehearsing and asked the question “Don’t guns usually shoot straight?”

I would encourage you to do something else with your life besides troll people on the internet. Go have some frozen yogurt, you never know when the ZA will happen and make it so you can never eat frozen yogurt again and you’re weirdly sad about it. I don’t know where you are, but it’s a beautiful Sunday morning here and I’m going to go for a walk in a pretty new outfit and meet up with some friends. Do something fun like that. There’s a place in town here where you can rent a puppy, maybe go rent a puppy if they have that where you are, the more you cuddle with affectionate, soft animals, the less you unnecessarily and futilely gripe at people in their inbox. 

Plus, cuddling puppies just feels so good.

Punk PowerPuff Girls // Acen 2016.

@gabbie0113, @trusimplcity and I created a group cosplay (each creating our own jacket) so that we were the Powerpunk Girls at Acen but we also accepted being called the Rowdy Ruff Girls.

Shouts out to second shooter @jager-papi for doing the damn thing and for @suitcasemurphy for bringing some Heavy Horns love into the mix.

Hey guys. Sorry for the lack of posts/replying to messages. Life got crazy. But Mya did very well yesterday.

First place we went was to CVS. Someone had their dog in a cart so she blocked and “kept it away” by doing so. She forced me onto the floor for DPT and the woman with the little dog glared when I told the employee it couldn’t be in the cart.

Second place was Shooters, where we play pool. Won a tournament between my friends and I, Mya did well and ended up doing DPT, and I got home around 00:15.

New Old West: The Colorado restaurant where everyone carries a gun

By Brad Knickerbocker, Christian Science Monitor, July 6, 2014

Much of the political and philosophical fight over guns in America is about appearances and perception.

Some gun owners assert their Second Amendment rights by openly (and legally) carrying their firearms in public. If the sight of someone walking around town armed with a loaded handgun, rifle, or shotgun–a civilian, not a law enforcement officer–is startling, then so be it. The point has been made.

Meanwhile, gun control advocates, stymied in their efforts to get Congress to pass stricter measures, have been pressuring major commercial establishments to ask their gun-toting patrons to leave the weaponry at home.

Target, one of the largest US retailers, is the latest to respond to a signature-gathering effort–400,000 names–organized by a group called “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America,” which was formed in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut.

Target thus joins Chili’s, Starbucks, Chipotle, Sonic, and Jack in the Box in asking customers to not bring firearms into their establishments.

Then there’s Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo. At Shooters, open display of firearms is encouraged. A sign on the front door reads, “Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the need arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”

Owners Lauren and Jayson Boebert carry guns on the job, as do the servers.

As the local newspaper, The Post Independent, puts it: “When waitress Ashlee Saenz takes your order at Shooters Grill in Rifle, she not only carries a pad and pen–she also packs a loaded Ruger .357 Blackhawk handgun holstered on her leg, Old West style. It’s loaded and she knows how to use it.”

There may be an Old West style to the grill’s décor and menu (half-pound Angus beef burgers are very popular) but the business plan is New West and apparently successful. So successful that on Sunday morning, the Boeberts posted this on their Facebook page:

“Alright folks!!! After having 7 deliveries in 5 days we are SOLD OUT OF FOOD!! We have breakfast items, but we cannot supply the quality of food which we normal have for lunch. We do not want anyone to be cut short on the quality/presentation of their meal. So TODAY WE CLOSING AT 11:00am!!! We will get a new delivery tomorrow at 5am. So come in hungry and we will feed you right!! Have a great day everyone!”

The restaurant also hosts concealed carry training that qualifies customers for Colorado and Utah permits. The $75 price tag includes dinner.

As she explained it to the local newspaper, Boebert said she is simply allowing customers and employees to exercise their constitutional right.

“We encourage it, and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights,” she said. “This country was founded on our freedom. People can come in carrying their gun, and they can pray over their food.”

“I consulted with my Christian friends and everyone said ‘Shooters’ sounded like a bar or a strip joint,” Ms. Boebert said. “But I thought, this is Rifle–it was founded around guns and the Old West. We called it Shooters and started throwing guns and Jesus all over the place.”

The restaurant does not serve alcohol, which makes local law enforcement officials happy.

“If it was a bar, I might be saying something different. But I have no problem with it,” Police Chief John Dyer told the Post Independent. “And besides, they make a really good burger.”

The “that’s not a production error, that’s a deliberate creative choice used to save Beth Greene’s life” theory

(needs a new name, open to suggestions.)

getkath asked about this and I realized it’s been a while since I made a post about my favorite, favorite “Beth lives” theory. We’ve got new people. We’ve got other folks who are reluctant to get on board with the idea that there was a second shooter. Consider this:

  1. Dawn definitely shot Beth
  2. at a steep angle (I would guess 75 degrees or more)
  3. in the forehead
  4. with a 9mm
  5. at close range

Those are the exact circumstances needed for this weirdness to happen irl. If we’re following the laws of physics (which they really should, it’s not that hard, especially with guns/bullets) then the only way the bullet exits where it does is if it skims her skull. Minimal brain damage. Minimal blood loss. Hurts. Could easily knock you out cold, but it doesn’t kill you. It just doesn’t.

The chances that the fx makeup crew and special effects crew don’t know this are pretty much zero.

My career in fx makeup was exactly one short indie film long, and I was only assisting the assistant. I am not that deep into fx makeup and even I know about this stuff. Makeup people need to know. Especially makeup people who fake-kill characters on the most popular show on television, on a constant basis.

Sometimes I call it the “It would have been really easy to shoot her through the chin” theory.

It’s not that Beth’s headshot is survivable. If the production crew did this deliberately (which I believe they did) then the headshot is straight-up non-fatal. She’s about as likely to die from this injury as she would be from getting her hand chopped off.

Still sucks to get shot in the head, and she could die later from infection, or she could sustain fatal injury while she’s helpless and unconscious, but the shot alone wouldn’t kill her.

well-she-sure-looks-dead + wait-what-happened-to-the-body? = a happy living Beth

Smol life update: I’ve been working with a media start-up for the past couple of weeks, they’re trying to launch a socially conscious content website soon, so be on the look out for plugs. 

I’ve also been working with a cool wedding photographer as a lighting assistant/second shooter in the NYC/central NJ area. It’s been pretty cool, learning a lot. The shoots are pretty long but I’d love to start my own wedding boutique at some point.

Also trying to figure out ways to make more money as a photographer. Or media specialist I guess. I guess that’s a good name for what I do since it’s so varied. 

I keep seeing tweets that say something to the effect of “if your first instinct after the shooting is to defend your guns then you’re part of the problem.”

The truth of the matter is that if your first instinct after a shooting is to call for state violence and the removal of rights from peaceful people then you’re the problem. Because you’d rather nurture our own prejudices instead of becoming privy to the facts.

Groundhog Day: Favorite superstitions/conspiracy theories?

Bush did 9/11. Probably the second shooter theories for JFK’s assassination- specifically, the shooter from the Grassy Knoll. In my Honors American Study class, we spent like a whole day just discussing the various conspiracy theories and it was really interesting!
