■ (on his first impression of jonghyun) lee ji hyung: he appeared cold when i first met him and i was actually nervous. he was thin - seeing him in person makes him looking skinner than he seems on television. but, after a week of doing broadcast together, i thought: “ah, he’s someone i can speak comfortably to.” so, i didn’t experience much discomfort when i was broadcasting with him.
jonghyun: so …, you mean you experience some discomfort at times? well, that’s possible since we’re all humans.
lee ji hyung: no. that’s not what i meant. (…) there were times when you were really busy, right? so i was worried that you would faint. i was like: “wow, what if this guy faints?” i wanted to make the show more interesting but, because i was worried jonghyun-ssi would faint, i didn’t.
jonghyun: so you were worried that i would faint and get sent to the emergency room …, so you didn’t do that. you even worried about my health. that’s really amazing.


More than a just a legend, Moran was the longest serving employee of the club at his retirement. He started his journey at the club at the age of 15 after being recommend by the postman who delivered mail to Liverpool’s chairman and made his First Team appearance at the age of 18. He went on to play 379 games from 1952 and 1966 during which he captained the team. He later joined the coaching staff working as part of “The Boot Room” under the likes of Shankly and Paisley. He then served as caretaker manager in 1991 and 1992. He retired from the club and football in 1999. He won 44 trophies as player and coach.

“A true professional, a loyal servant to Liverpool FC and a nice guy. I know his links with Liverpool go back to the days of the late, great Bill Shankly and the other famous members of the Anfield “Bootroom”, but his place in history is down to much more than longevity.

“As long as I have known him he has always been 110 per cent Liverpool. Anything asked of him in forwarding the club’s cause would be done without further enquiry. It is fair to say that Manchester United and Liverpool have had their moments over the years. The rivalry between our two clubs is well documented and I wouldn’t have had it any other way whilst the game is on. But that is where it ends as far as coaches, managers and players are concerned. Ronnie Moran has always been one of the first to shake the hand of an opponent, whether that be following a win or defeat. I wish that I’d had 1 pound for every argument I’ve had with Ronnie, but after the game he was always the first to offer you a drink. There is no question Ronnie Moran is one of Liverpool’s all-time greats.” - Alex Ferguson

RIP Ronnie Moran (28 Feb 1934 - 22 March 2017)

ok so im bringing this up because ive never seen anyone talk about it, but bishop (from the xmen comics/films) is one of the very very very VERY rare Indigenous Australian characters in any media, and yet in his first film appearance he was played by omar sy, a french african actor. this kinda makes me wonder if the director didn't bother to read bishops wiki page or just thought all black people are the same or some shit but like.... it really pissed me off and i just wanted to vent

Since I don’t read the comics I totally didn’t know that!  That’s so shitty :(  You can always come by and vent!

Dr. Zantaf

Did you know Zorglub has a duck equivalent in Italian&Danish Donald Duck comics?

Granted, I can’t prove Luciano Bottaro was inspired by Franquin, but well… There are some similarities there. Zantaf the evil scientist in his first appearance brainwashes people with gas to give him money. (For comparison, Paperino missione Zantaf came out in 1968, Z comme Zorglub in 1961)

His original appearance ends with Donald and Daisy zapping him with his brainwashing gadget to abandon his schemes for world domination.

He returns in a few stories by Bottaro & Romano Scarpa including one that is aparently a homage/parody of the Tintin adventure Flight 714 to Sydney as well as in some Danish stories published fairly recently.

He is basically just an evil supervillain mostly used in the more fantastical Donald Duck stories. Also:

I mean I’d vote for him for the emperor of the world if he ran with the platform of ‘a snake in every home!’.

Ed Sheeran is the only Tru person in the music industry u know, One Direction were like “we’re taking a year out of music…actually 2 years…actually could be 3…actually we don’t know but it’ll be less than 50”, Taylor Swift said she was taking a year out and yet…she didn’t fucking go anywhere, but Ed. Ed was like “I’m taking a year off, bye” on December 13th 2015, and then true to his word, on December 13th 2016 he makes his first appearance all year. Ed Sheeran the real MVP.

I don’t think I’ll write a review of this movie (I might eventually) so here’s just a brief list of the things I really appreciated in the new Beauty and The Beast (2017):

  • They allowed Belle to straight-up reject Gaston. They didn’t write her lines or her delivery as coquettish and overly polite. Belle gets to pretty much say, Gaston, I am not interested in you and you need to accept that. They did not portray this as her being shy or hard to get. Her rejection towards him was confident and clear.
  • Kevin Kline was an immaculate choice for Maurice (Belle’s father). He infused even his first appearance with such sincere emotion. Watson and Kline had a remarkably believable, familial chemistry on screen.
  • The costuming was much better than I expected. It had a surprisingly authentic spin on the original cartoonish costumes. They clearly studied the fashion of 1600′s France and attempted to stick closely to its style for this and it worked out very well!
  • The supporting cast forces white people to be reminded that Black People Are Not Some Kind of Recent Invention. People of colour lived throughout Europe in the 1600s. There are interracial couples and characters of colour at the forefront who weren’t used for stereotypical ends. The librarian that Belle visits at the very beginning was a black man and that was sort of the starting point for me where I was like, they took historical accuracy in more than just the costumes and they didn’t whitewash for the sake of/with the excuse of “it’s fantasy”/”its europe”/”it’s the victorian era”
  • They make a joke about a main character being illiterate in a way that isn’t rude, was actually funny, and again a historical nod to the fact that many would have been illiterate in that time period.
  • The Beast is not a petulant man-child who is changed by a Good Woman. His character is further fleshed out in a way that put me at ease about how the original tale is really Stockholm Syndrome dependent. A lot of questionable morals that can be gleaned from the original Beauty and The Beast dissolved under the weight of added context, better character dialogue, better pacing, etc.
  • The Beast gets a solo song and it’s GREAT???
  • Really well written dialogue and soundtrack all around. The majority of dialogue was much more witty than I had ever expected. Le Fou (Gaston’s hype man) had some lines that fell flat for me but he was the comedic relief character anyway, and enough of those made the audience laugh, and weren’t tacky jokes.
  • Yes, it’s implied that Le Fou is gay as you may have heard, but 1. only later in the film once we’ve gotten to know and like him, and 2. its NOT used as a joke. For the most of the film we see an interesting and nuanced dynamic between him and Gaston that gives a lot more life and likability to the character. The audience is only really invited to think about Le Fou’s sexuality once its appropriate, not when it can be used against him (and only very briefly, and once again and most importantly not as a form of humor). Le Fou is Comedic Relief but not Comedic Gayness.
  • Gaston’s character was given so much more strength and complexity and it made for a VERY NUANCED AND ENTICING villain. He’s given more background, and that background helps contextualize his desires and his tragic flaws way better. He’s no longer just a man lusting after a woman and jealous of her furry boyfriend, he is a man who unwittingly chases the thrill of conquest to his own demise.
  • Sir Ian McKellen was the clock guys HE WAS THE CLOCK MAGNETO WAS THE CLOCK

Black History Month (Year 3) | Day 7 | Phil LaMarr

Phil LaMarr is a graduate of Yale University where he founded the improv comedy group, Purple Crayon. In 1989, he became a member of the award winning sketch comedy group, The Groundlings. LaMarr also studied improv at The Secondy City and at the Improv Olympic. Through his connections within his improv network, he was able to start a film career—-his first movie being “It’s Pat”, in 1994. He has also appeared in a plethora of tv shows before it started his voice acting career—such as “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, “Hanging with Mr. Cooper”, “MADtv”, “Living Single”, and more. He’s even had a role in the popular cult classic  Tarantino Film, “Pulp Fiction”.

But the meat of his work is within the cartoon and video-game industry. Name a cartoon right now, go ahead. Did you do it? Yeah, he’s been in that. LaMarr has led an impressive voice acting career, his most notable roles being Jack (Samurai Jack), Static Shock (Static Shock), Hermes Conrad (Futurama), Wilt (Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends), Green Lantern (Justice League).

LaMarr is set to reprise his role as Samurai Jack for the show’s fifth and final season, this March.

Okay so I’m sure someone else has already pointed this out, so I’m sorry if I’m late to this realization but in the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories, one of the stories is called “The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire.” 

In the story, a man writes to Sherlock worried that his second wife (and mother of his youngest child) is sucking their baby son’s blood; thus believing she may be a ‘vampire.’ However it turns out that instead the man’s eldest son from his first marriage is actually behind the marks that have been appearing on the baby.

The boy was attempting to use poisonous darts on the baby, and the boy’s stepmother knew and had been trying to suck the poison out from the wounds. This poison the boy was using was initially tested out on the family dog.

Now, in BBC Sherlock, when John was texting who we now know to be “Eurus” who was going by “E,” John texted her and asked her if she was a night owl, to which she replied “vampire.” She clearly doesn’t seem to be a very nice person, now yet is a supposed sibling to Sherlock; and we all know Sherlock loved his childhood dog…

I don’t really know if there’s anything to be made of all of this, but it felt like something worth mentioning! Food for thought!

Let’s talk a bit about Jean-Jacques Leroy

Like his first anime appearance is this. He’s winking and biting his medal. If he’s like this in a few seconds, what will his skating routine look like? Also, where is his other hand going? Canadians are supposed to be nice. Why is this one so rude???

Now based off this, he seems like he’ll be quite the character, but it doesn’t stop there. His voice actor is none other than Mamoru Miyano. A few other characters that have been voiced by Miyano are Dazai from Bungou Stray Dogs, Fushimi from K, Rin from Free!, and Tsukiyama from Tokyo Ghoul. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Jean-Jacques Leroy aka the rudest Canadian to live who will probably steal all our hearts. Will he be another Chris? Will our hearts be able to handle the combination of him and VictUuri being canon? Probably not

But before Barack Obama’s political career, he was a community organizer in Chicago, the first black president of the Harvard Law Review and the state director of Illinois Project Vote.

And it was back then — in the 1990s, when Obama was in his late 20s and early 30s — that he first appeared on NPR.

Here are highlights from some of those earliest appearances:

In 1990, Obama was still a student at Harvard Law School and had just become the Harvard Law Review’s first black president when he was interviewed on Morning Edition.

  • Matt Raub: I'm not mad, I just want to know.
  • Flitz: ...I did it, I broke-
  • Matt Raub: No, no you didn't. Joven?
  • Joven: Don't look at me, look at Wes!
  • Wes: What? I didn't break it.
  • Joven: Huh, that's weird, how did you know it was broken?
  • Wes: Because it's sitting right in front of us, and it's broken!
  • Joven: Suspicious.
  • Wes: No it isn't!
  • Lasercorn: If it matters, probably not, Mari was the last one to use it...
  • Mari: Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Lasercorn: Oh? Then what were you doing by the coffee counter earlier?
  • Mari: I use the little wooden stirs to push back my cuticules! Everyone knows that, Lasercorn!
  • Flitz: Okay, let's not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it.
  • Matt Raub: No! Who broke it?
  • Wes: ...Y'know, Sohinki has been awfully quiet.
  • Sohinki: Really?!

One Piece ワンピース [Water 07 Saga] : Shichibukai Marshall D. “Blackbeard” Teach vs Portgas D. “Fire Fist” Ace

“Ace!! Why don’t you become my nakama!? Conquer the world with me! I’ve already planned how to do it. Whitebeard’s Era is over! I will become the Pirate King!! Look…this is something completely different from the rest of the Logia..!! Ace! Your body is ‘Fire’ right?! ZEHAHAHA!! I am…’DARKNESS’!!”

Oda has written a beautiful archvillain. I remember I was disappointed when Blackbeard first appeared noting that he looked nothing like his fearsome real-world counterpart. I could not accept the fact that this chubby cherry pie eating pleb was supposed to be the most notorious pirate to roam the seven seas. But of course, Oda delivered, for Teach definitely grew to be the appropriate final boss of One Piece. I still can’t believe he stole WB’s devil fruit I mean what in the asdflkj;… I really want to see a flashback of how he gave Shanks his scar. Even more so than Blackbeard however, I am heavily invested in his crew, especially “Shiryū of the Rain”. Catarina “Crescent Moon Hunter” Devon, Avalo “Corrupt King” Pizarro, and Vasco “Heavy Drinker” Shot are so damn HYPE. Every time they come out my jaw drops, I can’t wait to see them in action!! Also on a side note; Chapter 441, one of the best, Ace my boyy! “Dai Enkai! Entei. I will make Whitebeard…The King.” :’) Glorious. The notorious Scourge of the Seas; Blackbeard!
