this man really loved this planet

Tao is literally one of the most precious, important and beautiful souls to walk this planet. That man gives his all in everything he does and he pushes himself so hard and I’ve never seen anyone like him. His determination to continue on no matter how hard the path is really inspiring to me. And no matter what hardships he’s faced with, he still manages to come out okay. I honestly don’t know how he does it… And words cannot describe how much I love him and how much I just want to thank him for just being him.

The Gorgeous Nothings: Emily Dickinson’s Envelope Poems

Man, I love this book. I got it for Christmas a year or two ago, but only really dug into it this week.

It’s executed so well — these envelope fragments are presented full-size on one side of the page, the other side has a little map of the envelope with the words transcribed:

Some of my favorite fragments:

We introduce
ourselves
To Planets and
to Flowers
But with ourselves
Have Etiquettes
Embarrassments
And awes

Who says 
the Absense 
of a 
Witch
In-validates
his spell?

Interesting confluence: I noticed when flipping through Basquiat’s drawings that his hand-written directions would match up nicely with one of these:

You can see a bunch more of these fragments and other manuscripts in the digital Emily Dickinson collection at Amherst:

But I really recommend them in book form

Bonus: here’s a video of Jen Bervin and Marta Werner talking about the work:

RA 31 DAY CHALLENGE - Day 18: A favourite quote about him.

Oh, yeah. He’s just the most generous guy on the planet. He really is. He’s not just the leader of men on screen, he’s a leader of men off screen. We would have followed him anywhere. He just has that way about him, where he encourages you to do your best. Yeah. Yeah, I trained with him in the gym a lot. He’s probably the strongest person I’ve ever trained with, just in terms of his mental… He will push himself above and beyond, and he did that every day on set as well. So, yeah, he’s… Most people would know that about anyway, but he is just one of those incredibly generous people.Jed Brophy  

“He’s about the least arrogant person you can wish to meet, very self-deprecating, and he’s always up for what you’re going to bring to the scene. I went to the gym with him once, and there was a few of us there, and we had to do these circuits around the gym with this insane, psychopath of a gym trainer, and I was busy dying about half way round. And I nearly did pass out, I genuinely nearly did, it was only a sports drink that stopped me from rolling on the floor. And Richard had sort of quietly completed the entire circuit with only slightly breaking a sweat; he sort of admitted he found it hard but what I really admired about that was that he wasn’t being macho, he wasn’t being butch, but he just quietly got on with it. And that’s kind of how he treated the 18 months on the job, really. All the trials and tribulations that inevitably come, which is the day-to-day making of a film, it’s tiring, you miss home, et cetera, but he was very stoical about it, which again is a great thing for Thorin. So there was a good marriage of Richard and Thorin there, and I enjoyed working with him very much. What I always think about Richard is that he is essentially a decent person, and I can offer someone no higher praise than that. He’s a good human being. I like being around him.” Martin Freeman 

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – Spoiler Free Review

I have been waiting for Joss Whedon’s second Marvel film, Avengers: Age of Ultron since the shawarma scene in The Avengers. I had high expectations for this film and went in totally clean, without reading any reviews or reactions to the film. For the most part, I really enjoyed it and loved the experience of seeing a big blockbuster in a full cinema.

Avengers: Age of Ultron sees our favourite heroes, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Thor back together kicking some robot arse. Ultron, originally designed by Iron Man as a planetary peace keeping machine which malfunctions and logically decides that to keep the peace the Avengers and everyone else on the planet must be extinct. He is also working with a couple of Baron Von Strucker’s human experiments, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson respectively).

In true Joss fashion each character gets their time in the spotlight and we see the chemistry they each have with each other. The team has bonded which brings a comfortable, family atmosphere to the film but with strong personalities there is always conflict. The conflict and difference of opinion is mainly between Captain America and Iron Man, continuing the rift that started in the first Avengers’ film. This is a deliberate set up for the 2016 Captain America film, Civil War, in which the two will be on opposing sides of an act the government wishes to introduce that regulates all superhuman activity. Not only does Age of Ultron produce an intriguing self-contained story but it also sets up storylines for future MCU films, as well as links in past MCU films and the television shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.

There is a strong focus on Hawkeye which makes him seem more useful and a vital member of the team than he was made out to be in The Avengers. Not only does this add some backstory and flavour to the character but it also helps move the story onwards.

When the light shines on the other Avengers individually, they are all interesting and dynamic but two that need mentioning are Scarlet Witch and Vision (Paul Bettany). I was really looking forward to seeing Scarlet Witch and I was not disappointed. Scarlet Witch makes an impression as we see another strong female character introduced into this overly testosteroned team who can hold her own in a fight. Her and Quicksilver’s origin story works well and their tie-in into Ultron’s plan makes an interesting development from villain to hero (this isn’t a spoiler). Quicksilver, however, is not as impressive as his twin sister. Although Avenger’s Quicksilver is onscreen more than X-men DOFP’s Quicksilver, I much prefer the version we saw of the character in the X-men Universe.

Paul Bettany’s portrayal of the new character, The Vision, was superb. He was able to embody the essence of JARVIS and develop him into a character that has the power and mentality required to become a worthy Avenger.

The cinematography is equal to the first film. The scenes filmed on location, in South Africa, South Korea, Italy and the UK set the world and give it a real feel with real consequences which showcases these beautiful parts of the world.

I didn’t like everything about Avengers: Age of Ultron. As much as I love Joss Whedon and his brain, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. AoU is riddled with quick wit, humour and one liners that are extremely Whedon-esque. However, these start to feel forced and out of place in the final act. The action scenes are well crafted and perfectly timed but in instances feels repeated from earlier scenes.

My main negativity is of Ultron himself. James Spader’s voice as Ultron is perfect for the menacing mechanical maniac and the CGI is believably injected into the scenes. However, it was difficult for me to adjust to an A.I. having such a large, ‘human’ personality. This is explained during the film but it still was jarring for me as Ultron wasn’t given enough time to be fully developed for the audience. He is just instantly there. However after a second viewing of the film, I no longer have this problem as I knew what it expect from the antagonist.

After seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron a second time around, I don’t have as many issues as I did from the first viewing, but it was nothing like the experience of seeing it for the first time, in a full cinema, full of other fan-boys… sorry I mean fan-people.

PICK or FLICK?

Need you ask? A definite PICK. 9/10 for me. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a true cinema event and I believe the best MCU film to date. My advice would be to make sure you are feeling alert going in as it is not just a blockbuster action/adventure with a single story. There are several character storylines running alongside the main Ultron threat that you need to pay attention to.

So I said to her, “Angelina, I want to, I really, REALLY want to. But what about Brad? Brad’s like a son to me.”

“You’re a good man”

“I know, I know”

“Come in!”

“One Direction are here to see you”

“Who?”

“One Direction? They’re making their new movie? Shall I send them in?”

“Sure! I love new movies!”

“They’re here! The real movie stars!”

“The biggest band on the planet!”

“Right, you are!”

“I love The Direction. Come on in guys, take a seat.”

“Can I just say what HUGE fans we are of you guys?” “Huge!” “Niall, Louis, Liam, Harry, Zack…”

“It’s Zayn,”

“Sure, whatever you say, big guy”

“We cannot WAIT for this movie, it’s gonna be the greatest movie of all time. I’m talkin’ Academy Awards!” “Emmy’s, Baftas!”

“Have you ever seen Forrest Gump?”

“Sure”

“Better than that!”

“Have you seen The Hangover?”

Ya

Funnier than that.

“Have you seen Titanic?” 

“‘Course”

“Sadder than that”

“Sounds okay”

“It’s better than okay, Zack!” “It’s award-winning.”

“We want to introduce you to our marketing guy. Marcel! Marcel!”

“Hi.”

“Here he is! He’s gonna run you through some thoughts on the new movie,”

“Really nice to meet you guys,” “I’m a HUGE fan. Cute as a button, every single one of you.” “First scene, I’m talking MASSIVE dance number,” “I’m thinking one hundred dancers, fireworks, the lot. Dance is just so HOT right now.”

“Hey, you know I used to be a dancer?”

“Really, what kind?”

“Eh! Mainly tap.”

“You’ve got the shape for that.”

I want you to meet Leeroy, he’s gonna be your choreographer. Leeroy!”

“Hi, boys!”

“Okay, Here’s what I was thinking – first open number is gonna be really big. Stay with me, ‘cause I’m quite quick, and five, six, seven, eight!” “And Niall, for the shimmy, for the shimmy….” “And Zayn,” “pirouette, and Louis, do the splits, and Liam, you stay exactly where you are, ‘cause you are per – fect.”

“We’d never do that.” 

“Oh”

“So that’s something for us to work on, thanks, Leeroy!”

“So let’s take a look at some of the styling options for the film. Now personally, I think this one is the ONE.”

Absolutely not.

“Right, how abouut THIS one!”

“No.”

“It tested really well”

“Never in a million years”

“Ta-daaaa!”

MAYBE ITS THE WAY SHE WALKED!

“I respect the secrets of magic of nature. That’s why it makes me so angry when I see these things that are happening, you know, that every second I hear the size of a football field is torn down in the Amazon. I mean, that kind of stuff really bothers me. This is why I write these kind of songs. You know, give some sense of awareness and awakening and hope to people. I love the planet. I love trees. I have this thing for trees and the colors and changing of leaves. I LOVE it. I respect those kind of things. I really feel that nature’s trying so hard to compensate for man’s mismanagement of the planet ‘cause the planet is sick, like a fever. If we don’t fix it now, it’s at the point of no return. It’s just our last chance to fix this problem that we have where it’s like a runaway train and the time has come. This is it. People are always saying “Oh, they’ll take care of it. The government, don’t worry, they, they ..” They who? It starts with us. It’s us or else it will never be done.”

TRASH KIDS (shiro mostly but yeah)

eyyy i love these nerds

ok so i just have a sketch i whipped up of shiro real quick but ill make a detailed thing of her (and the other charas too) later

recap of trashworld: ragtag bunch of kids are the futuristic space equivalent of sanitation workers, and work to clear an artificially-encapsulated collection of planet bits of trash and other contaminants. 

ok so the ragtag bunch of kids on a SpaceGarbageTruck get into all sorts of shenanigans. cirrus, the captain, doesnt really know what the hell shes doing but her old man was the garbage man on a really important ship and learned captain stuff from the captain of THAT ship since p much every day was bring your daughter to work day so eventually she just gathered up her own crew when she was old enough.

shiro is the engineer on that crew. shiro got really fuckin good grades in FuturisticSpaceshipAcademy and skipped all sorts of grades or whatever and was basically that stereotypical overly stoic child prodigy character that there is at least 1 of in every other anime. i think i designed her that way initially because i was taking the easy way out and avoiding having to give her a personality since i couldnt really think of one. yeah, definitely working on making her not-bland.

so far ive got that she

  • is 10? or something? i dunno, little kid aged. eh.
  • is pretty shy/kinda lonely (not many kids ever end up on airships, surprisingly enough)
  • likes to make cute things rather than what might actually practical (case in point: UsaBot, her mechanical companion, that isnt really good for much of anything other than helping shiro get up to shenanigans)
  • likes to snowboard and is actually surprisingly athletic
  • is still a kid and immature about a lot of things (being a picky eater, whines about things she doesnt like, makes fun of the other crew members for being FUCKIN OLD even though most of them are under 20, etc)
  • is stuck in that limbo between being old/responsible enough to be largely independent most of the time and young enough to really need help with lots of things/taking care of herself 
Nice try Levi...

Levi: So how about a prostate exam..

MoS rewatch

I did the thing! I just re-watched MoS with my sister!

Some random thoughts:

I was actually surprised by the amount of damage Supes didn’t contribute to. Long times listening to some people say that it was all Supes had an effect, I guess. Heh.

Zod..gotta love Zod. He is a dramatic piece of work(to say the least :) ). Michael Shannon’s face. So expressive. 

I really appreciate the fact that Lois knows Clark’s identity. Glad it doesn’t drag on to complicate things.

Gotta love the Cav-El.

I just want Clark to have all the happiness in the world.

FAORAAAA <3 <3 She’s so frightening. I love it. 

Ma Kent, live long and prosper.

Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack…omfg. It just gives so much to this movie. Zimmer is the man. 

‘Welcome to the planet’ and ‘Glad to be here Lois’ awwwwwwwwww…MY CHILDREN.

Afterwards we just kinda rolled around in Clark feels and discussed how B v S will tie into the events of this movie, and generally fangirled.

Overall, I had a great time. I love discovering I enjoy a movie just as much as(or more than) I did the first time.

i love it when the hero is just REALLY nice! it’s so easy to wanna go for boring samey grimdark broody assholeness but it’s REALLY HARD to stay GOOD and PURE OF HEART in the face of adversity!!! and masayoshi struggles with his responsibility but he PERSEVERES, and he saves the planet and marries the man of his dreams and everything is so happy and perfect and nice

war-of-wrath asked:

Which one of your characters is the most sentimental? How does it show and have they changed over the course of their life?

Honestly, I think it’s a toss-up between Kezz and Graystrike. Both men try to hide it, especially since they’re Agents. 

Kezz really misses Csilla, even though he knows he’s a dead man if he steps foot on the planet ever again. (He made too many enemies in his Chiss SpecOps career). He carries around his Clan knife, and even passes it on to his niece, Zara. He also makes sure that his kids with Milli (Kotep and Batahn) are familiar with and are comfortable with their Chiss heritage. His first two kids with his long-dead first wife never knew him.

Graystrike never forgot his first love. That really put a damper on any other relationships he’d have after that (although there is one exception…which I’ll explain soon in a mini-fic). Of course, it didn’t help that the Imperial military claimed she was dead, and she ended up being a Jedi. Of course, his life (and hers) is turned upside down when he finds the truth.

Cory Seals, you really won’t ever have any idea how much of an impact you had on my life and I’m kicking myself for not having told you when I had the opportunity. You’re the only dude that has ever and will ever subtly put their hand in my pants in the center of Times Square and for that, and a million other reasons, you’ll never be forgotten my man.

You were a legend during your stay on the planet, man. Keep an eye on me, we both know I need it. Love you, brother.

What tv shows and films do you like that aren't anime? As well as anime I'm personally a big fan of superhero films (thor and the amazing spider man are my favourites) and I also love disney films :) I was curious since you probably don't get much of a chance to discuss anything that isn't anime related on here :) Btw I love your blog, you write the scenarios so well!

Thank you! Hmm…it’s actually really hard to think of non-anime shows that I watch! Not gonna lie, I like crime-type shows. Criminal Minds, Bones, Lie to Me, things like that. I’m also paranormal/cryptid trash. One of my favorite series will always be Lost Tapes that used to come on Animal Planet. I like shows where people talk about their experiences with ghosts and such too (I have a ghost/spirit/thing that’s followed me around since I was a kid, so I feel less crazy hearing about people with similar experiences). In that same vein, I also really like Paranormal Witness. Oh! Afterthought shows that I forgot about: I love Modern Family and Parks and Rec.

As for movies, I LOVE superhero movies. Marvel heroes especially. Oh, and while I’m thinking about superheroes and such, I loved Young Justice when it was still coming on and still think it’s a shame that it got cancelled. I also love Disney and Dreamworks movies (Beauty and the Beast and HTTYD being in my top faves). Let’s see…looking over at my shelf (which doesn’t have even a fraction of my full collection) I also really like and regularly watch The Princess Bride, Secondhand Lions, Easy A (I have a massive crush on Emma Stone), Book of Eli (same goes for Mila Kunis), and Inkheart.

Repost @416vegan. Gary Yourofsky is an American hero. A vegan activist who speaks bluntly, tells the truth and is entirely unapologetic about it. His speeches and lectures have changed my life. I encourage you all to check them out if you havent already, and share them around with your friends and family. Search for ‘gary yourofsky best speech you will ever hear’ on youtube. Listen to this man with an open mind. He really puts things into perspective, makes you realize why veganism is so important for the animals, planet, and humanity… Such an inspiration. @therealgaryyourofsky #vegan #veganism #whatveganseat #veganismo #vegansofig #plantbased #meat #cheese #bacon #icecream #chicken #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #animals #animalrights #animalliberation #cruelty #crueltyfree #healthy #420 #vegetarian #vegetariano #rt4 #rawtill4 #respect #love #ctfu by vegan.propaganda http://ift.tt/1I4Cx8I

Closed Minds.

Last year, a self thought friend, whom I felt a shared familiarity with, uttered words that forever altered my view of him, and my whole community of peers. 

“I would kill every gay on the planet if I could.” 

Though this was a passing comment he had not directed towards me, hell, I was all the way across the room, it left a sadness in me that I still cannot fully describe. Somehow it hurt me, and I had not really thought it through until recently. 

Someone told me a few weeks ago that he sees no point in classifying yourself as a certain sexual orientation, that we’re all human. 

We’re all human, we share common goals and aspirations, no matter if the person you love is a man or a woman. There are so many wonderful people in the world, you have no idea who you’ll fall in love with. 

If one day I meet a woman that I love, and loves me back, how ridiculous would it be to limit myself from happiness, because I’ve labeled myself as straight. That’s what I find quite sad, that happiness can be defined by social norms that are set for you from the time you begin interacting with others. 

I was very lucky to be raised in a family that let me express myself in ways that I saw fit, and create my own own opinions. To label myself.

Then it hit me, why was this boy so close minded to the idea of love? Because he was told that being gay was an abomination? Or because he was just repulsed by the idea of homosexuality?

Automatically, in his and others minds, being gay was something worth being killed for. I have close friends, and family who are gay, and I just wish that he could see the whole person, not one quality, or label that made them worthy to kill in his mind.

I have observed that a nice majority of people fail to see that the LGBTQA community is just defined as a person who is different than heterosexual social norms. Why must one group of people be the normality when there is so much more diversity in our beautiful world? 

We’re all human. We all love. 
Let others love as they wish.
