I don't want that business professional look they had at the bbmas. I want them to look hot af and just murder all the other celebrities. If they were performing bst, I wouldn't be worried. But with dna, they've had some questionable outfits lol

Okay but that Business Professional was for sure a “hot son of a CEO in a strip club” look and it slayed both celebrities and the public (read: me) alike.
But srsly I get what you mean. I am not a huge fan of the DNA styling (with some very important exceptions) especially compared to the ethereal beauty that was the Wings styling. And I just… don’t think it’s suitable for that sort of performance? And also I’m not sure I can handle another “they’re the next 1 boyband!” ignorant article, which I feel this styling lends them towards.
But also, this is a very big and like. Pretty important gig for them; it’s their way to nab the international market. Personally I’d like to see a combination of the more formal and dark styling from BST merged with the bright colours and personality from DNA.
But honestly, those boys could pull off any look and I’m just excited to see Western artists I love watching another artist I love as well.

                ❝ REMIND YOU OF someone, do I pretty boy? Really A hand settled under her chin, eyes sparkling with amusement, not sure if i’m offended yet or not, but go on, you’ve come this far, you might as well tell me who ? @theidealiist  ❤’d //SELECTIVELY ACCEPTING

conversation between me and my friend

me: you know, some people are really angry about Captain America: Civil War. some say, that Marvel still owes them a Captain America movie as this was more of an Avengers movie, some say that Marvel still has to give us a proper Civil War, and some claim that it wasn’t Captain America: Civil War, but Iron Man 4.

my friend: for me it was Spiderman 1!!

"Brought up in a fully multilingual home, he speaks fluent German, English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Catalan." :OOOOOOOOOOOOO dude speak SIX languages, FLUENTLY. RIP @me

omfg also he apparently loves talking about languages wtf

“German is a very technical language, a very precise language, which I love, so you can describe things in a very efficient and clear way,” he says, and then switching into a thick French accent, “then you have French which is very passionate blah-blah-blah.”

THE FRENCH THING IS SO ACCURATE HAHAHA (trust me)

“Spanish, he says, is also passionate, and he admits that unconsciously he changes his tone and the way he acts when speaking his mother’s language.”

(im dying omg this is real and cute af it’s his mom’s language halp)

“He says that though he understands Portuguese, he could not – yet – feel comfortable taking on a role where he would have to speak it.” 

AW LOOK HE HAS A FLAW *points at a minuscule micro-pixel*

“I love Italian as well, and they move their hands big-time,” he says with a laugh.”

ANON I THINK HE SPEAKS ITALIAN IN RUSH TOO OMG HE CAN ALSO SPEAK ITALIAN SOME OEN E SAVE ME LITERALLY WHERE CAN I LISTEN TO 20 HOURS OF DANIEL BRUHL COMPARING ALL THE LANGUAGES?????

Flying Heritage Collection Part 4 or 5, I don’t know.

1 & 2) Avro 683 Lancaster B. Mk. I (F/E). Lancaster TW911 was built to serve with the RAF’s Tiger Force in the Far East, but was completed too late for combat service. The aircraft was converted for use as a flying test bed and used to test the Armstrong Siddeley Python engine. Later the nose section was grafted onto the body of an Avro Lincoln.

That aircraft carried out extensive flying tests for the Napier & Son engine company before it was retired to the British Historic Aircraft Museum in 1968. After the closure of the museum the aircraft was sold and the nose section was acquired by the FHC in 2001.

3) Pratt & Whitney R-2800-79 Radial Engine. The Pratt & Whitney R-2800 “Double Wasp” engine powered some of the best American combat aircraft of WWII. The 18-cylinder air-cooled radial was so sturdy that it achieved almost mystical reverence among army and navy flyers. Seemingly no matter the damage it took, the “Double Wasp” kept on going.

Powered the P-47 Thunderbolt, F6F Hellcat, F4U Corsair, B-26 Marauder and C-46 Commando.

Pictured is the R-2800-78 “B series” power plant, primarily used in Douglas A-26B Invader light bomber/ground attack aircraft.

4) Fiedler FI 103 V-1. The V-1 was the first guided missile used in war. V-1s were usually launched from catapult ramps or were dropped from aircraft. They used a simple pulse engine propulsion which gave it a distinctive sound which earned it the name “doodlebug” or “buzzbomb”

The V-1 was manufactured at many different sites, but main production occurred at the notorious underground complex known as Mittelwerk at Nordhaus in the Hartz Mountains. Here around 35,000 V-1s were assembled by slave laborers, of which 10,000 were launched at Britain. If that number, only 2,419 actually hit London; a 20% success rate.

5 & 6) Fiedler FI 103R Reichenberg. Late in the war several piloted V-1s were built. The plan was that a pilot would guide the missile into position and then bail out at the last moment (note the cockpit was right in front of the pulse jet’s intake). This manned V-1 was tested several times, killing every pilot on landing. It was never used in combat.

7) Me 163 “Komet”. This Komet’s first flight occurred on December 18, 1944c, when the partially finished plane was towed as a glider between factories. It was later delivered to Jagdgeschwader 400. It is unknown if it ever flew in combat.

The plane was captured by the British in 1945 and was shipped to the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough, England for evaluation. In 1946, it was turned over to the RAF College in Cranwell. In 1961 it became part of the Imperial War Museum collection and was later displayed at Duxford. The aircraft was purchased by the FHC in 2005.
