the story of the jungle ball

“This was an actual game played at circuses & carnivals, mostly in celebration of “INDEPENDENCE DAY”, all over America from the late 19th century well into the early 1940s. 3 balls cost them a dime to hit a grinning Black CHILD peeking through a platform painted to resemble an African jungle while the child’s head appeared through the open mouth of a crocodile. This is a part of our history that you will NEVER see in any textbook or any class. Get in tune my people, to be ignorant of the past is to be blinded going into the future…. “

just for funsies, what can u tell us about hitman bang's chart 😂😂😂

did someone say THE hitman bang?

- so the first thing that jumps at out me is that his sun, moon, mercury, and mars are ALL in leo. WOW! leo, the sign of the lion, a born leader, is the dominant sign in his chart. and that makes total sense when you look at his story: starting a company from the ground up and despite all the critics telling him it would fail, he persisted. and now he’s one of the kings of this jungle called the kpop industry.
- bravery and courage: two words that describe leo values very well. they’re also words that also allowed him to put his everything into a group that wasn’t guaranteed success. only a leo would have the balls (and be crazy and/or passionate enough) to do that.
- leos are also extremely creative. many are gifted at the arts, music, film, production. it’s the sign of show business and business in general. definitely a good sign for the CEO of an entertainment company to have!
- his birth time isn’t known so i set his time to noon to get an overall feel of his houses and such. and with that time he has a 10th house stellium and leo midheaven! 10th house rules the career and social standing. people with a 10th house stellium hate following rules in their job, they wanna be their own boss! this is especially true in his case, having left his secure long time job at JYP Entertainment to form Big Hit.
other notes:
- uranus forms aspects with his sun, moon, mercury and saturn making someone who walks to the beat of his own drums and sticks up for the underdog
- he potentially has a scorpio rising just like namjoon

  • His parents were sort of low-key absent when he was growing up. He was sort of close to his dad, but he’s not really around anymore, and his mother basically stopped hugging him once he turned five or six. It really affected him, and he vowed he would never be like that with his own kids.
  • He missed the birth of his first child. He kept his phone on him, but after two false alarms during an important match, he put his phone on silent and left it in his bag. By the time the match was over, his son was already born. You tried to reassure him about it after the fact, but he’s always felt awful about it.
  • He spoils his children with affection. All through their newborn phase, if they were crying, he picked them up. He just wants to hold them and protect them always. It low key breaks his heart when his kids get too big to pick up anymore.
  • He’s a sucker for the newborn smell. There’s something special about the way babies’ heads smell, and you catch him with his nose buried in his baby's’ hair all the time. It soothes him in a lot of ways.
  • He has 100% fallen asleep on the couch with the baby on the chest. It may or may not have been your phone background for a long time. You sent Tendou a picture and the only response you got was a series of screams.
  • He becomes super-dad pretty quickly. He has a sixth sense for when his kids are getting into mischief; he can catch a thrown or spit-out pacifier in mid-air without looking up from his tablet; he can silence bickering with a look. Sadly, he has no advice for his friends with kids. It’s all very instinctual.
  • Sometimes, he’ll watch his kids sleep because they are just the most amazing things in the world? They’re like a piece of you and him and he helped make them and they came out of the person he loves most in the world and he loves them so much. He sometimes gets a little overwhelmed and cries a bit.
  • He is super supportive of his kids in anything and everything they want to do. If they like volleyball, even better, but if not, then that’s cool too. He is at every recital, every art show, every game… he does his best to show his kids that he cares.
  • When he does bedtime stories, he high key does the voices. It’s a little silly but very sweet and his kids always laugh.
  • He allows himself to become a human jungle gym. He’s strong enough he can support the weight, and the children are having a ball, so he doesn’t really mind. He’s also very big, so he can imagine it’s fun for them.
  • Even if he’s just come home from training or a game and he’s exhausted, he’s always 100% down for playtime with the kiddos, and he follows all their rules. If they’re playing pretend, he plays along. If they say he’s the bad guy, he puts on his best villain smile for them. If he’s the princess, then damn it he will wear the damn plastic crown and he’ll be the princess (even if his princess voice is lacking.)

don’t become known on the internet because people will make up stories claiming they’ve met you and that you looked them up and down, laughed at them and walked away.

anyone who knows me knows that i’m a super shy and quiet person and not only would i not even have the balls to randomly do that to someone i loathed but i’d never do that to a stranger or anyone for that matter because i wasn’t raised in a jungle

Jurassic World was a great movie, but I had a few problems with it:

  • If the pachycephalosaurus’ implants kept shorting out because they would headbutt, why not put the implants not in their head?
  • Why was there not some sort of recall over-ride on those hamster ball safari things for this exact situation?
  • Showing Zach’s girlfriend added nothing to the story, we would have thought he was an ass in the beginning regardless just due to how he treated Gray
  • If you’re aiming to kill Franken-Dino, and you have a bazooka, use the bazooka as an opener, not as a last resort.
  • I don’t care who you are, hair does not go from straighter than how the catholic church pretends to be to “y=sin” wavy when your in the jungle, it goes to frizzy mess.
  • Those raptors were hella fickle
  • What jurisdiction did the army have to take over?
  • You are not running through the jungle in high heels
  • You are NOT out running a T-Rex

Merry Christmas world.

Although we’ve spent most of the past twelve months holed up in our recording studio weaving the fabric of what promises to be Jets V, we have also had our ears firmly glued to the ground. So we thought we’d amass a compendium of some of our favourite music released in the past year, starting off with our top 20 tracks. Some you will be familiar with from other ‘Best of 2014 lists’, others you will perhaps never have chanced across. Note - we have made zero effort to omit some of the years’ most shamelessly commercial entries, which have gotten us through the dark winter weeks of late. Make no mistake, we are here to celebrate pop music.
