The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous startups in Silicon Valley, I will spare the whole place for their sake.” Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five startups?” // “If I find forty-five there,” God said, “I will not destroy it.”
… The two venture capitalists arrived at Palo Alto in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. … They did go with him and entered his $0.9m one-bedroom home. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without gluten, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of Silicon Valley—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can pitch our startups to them.”
This is the sweet message Harry said before Sign of the Times and after he had suddenly put his pride flag over his mic stand. (As you can tell by my yell I was surprised. Also, the video gets a lot better when Harry starts talking, I thought he was going to leave the stage before the encore but he went straight into his speech and he had the flag so I had to be quick lmao)
“Thank you so much for having us. I um— It’s kind of impossible to say thank you enough times because, like, I just couldn’t be on this stage if it wasn’t for you guys. So, thank you so much for everything that has got me to this place and for all your support since this next song came out. I love you very, very much and um -coughs- this is the last one.”
Then the crowd started to boo and get sad.
“I mean, I just don’t have any more songs. This is just the last— This is just the last- the last one! Now please sing along if you know this one and if I am– If I could possibly be any luckier than I am right now I will see you again very soon! I love you with all my heart, this is Sign of the Times!”
A little bit of Prey fanart, because that game has swallowed me whole. Morgan Yu (of course I picked the lady version, who do you think I AM) and a particular Operator I won’t name just because minor spoilers
Thank you Arkane, for all these good games with queer female leads. I feel blessed
Curtain Call of Musical Kuroshitsuji: Noah’s Ark Circus
I found this moment to be incredibly endearing. As you probably know, because this was their final performance, Reo was very teary and shaky during the speech and he very much remained in that state afterwards. So as they made their final bow to the audience, he reached his little hands to the two people right next to him, Teruma and Yuta. He didn’t seem to have taken neither’s hand on the first try, but they soon joined hands, and then Reo turned to look at Teruma.
Long-time fans of Teruma’s William should know that he DOESN’T break character during curtain call. It’s something he has always done and he takes great pride in remaining stoic even as the audience cheer for him. But when Reo looked at him, he smiled to reassure the boy and that just made Reo hold on to them both harder, even to the point when Teruma had to let go because Reo and Yuta need to do a separate curtain call.
And of course Jinnai Soma was very upset about this whole thing lol
And here’s a picture of Teruma and his “eternal little brother” Reo because at this point why not.
