we want the world and we want it

Translation: Shoma is adding a 4S

Nikkan Sports Feb 23:
He announced adding 4S, his 4th quad, the 27th when he went back to Nagoya after AWG. His next competition, CdP, is an “adjustment” towards Worlds, so it’s the best moment to try something new. Since he landed 4S a few times in practice, there is a chance he lands it properly in competition. After his FS on the 26th, he said “There is no way I don’t try jumps (in competition) that I can already land. (…) I practice them so I want to try them out when I can”, showing his will to try out the salchow. His coach also said “(We) want to do it (in the next competition). We will see and decide”, pushing him to try it out if his condition is good. Until the second half of last season, he only had 1 quad, the 4T. But last year in April he landed 4F for the first time and last month he landed a 4Lo at 4CC. In 10 months, he added 2 types of quads. If he can have 4 types of quad like Chen and Jin, it will be possible for him to have 5 quads in the FS, making chances for next season a lot bigger.

Chunichi Sports Feb 23: 
About adding 4S to his layout: “Chances for the loop is quite low right now, so if I can make it as good as the flip is, I will feel more comfortable adding the salchow. I thought I could never be able to land a salchow but lately, I’ve been able too." 
He explained adding the new jump saying "Trying out something new makes the rest feel easy. It makes me see things differently and it’s important (…) I don’t want to keep losing. I want to be good enough to win."

THE GIFTENING 2016: FINAL DAY

THE GIFTENING concludes this year later today, with my fourth and final Yuri Hell’s Kitchen recipe. I have no doubt the most complicated slice of awful has been saved for last.

We’ll be starting about 3:30 pm today (earlier if we can swing it). I’ll let you know when we’re underway.

And then later this week, I’ll have a schedule for March, what we’ll be doing and what’s coming up, AND AN EXCITING NEW ANNOUNCEMENT

STAY TUNED

He (Oliver) knows that she’s (Felicity) into something, and he’s bothered right now (…)It’s not something that she and Oliver discuss until they have what I think is actually quite an adult conversation about it. But he knows that she’s into something, and he knows that she doesn’t want to tell him about it, so he’s dealing with that in his own way (…) We know what came between them; it was a lack of trust. Felicity walked away, and Oliver let her (…)I never want to sail over something as traumatic and significant as the fact that Oliver was tricked into killing Detective Malone and everything that that’s putting Felicity through (…) I mean, we live in a television world. Fences can always be mended

let’s compare and contrast

I decided to listen to the Oscar 2017-winning Best Song City of Stars to figure out what made it stand out from the rest.

….. And I don’t get it.  It’s wistful, it’s poignant, it’s a love song.  It’s pretty…. but it’s fairly forgettable for me IMHO.

I get that the strike against How Far I’ll Go is that it is typical of a Disney Princess song - the young woman who dreams of adventure, to strike out on their own, to go forth on their voyage of discovery - both of their own self and what’s beyond them.  But it still strikes a chord - the same way we all remember Part of Your World, Belle’s Reprise, Reflections, Let It Go etc.

We all want adventure in that great wide somewhere.  We look at the mirror and wonder whether it will ever reflect what we feel inside.  We want to be part of that greater world. 

Or, I think, this song might have been even better as a Best Song or Best Original Soundtrack altogether.

Oh welp.  What’s done is done.  Awards are lovely, but ultimately, the music that speaks best to all of our hearts will always stand the test of time. 

BEAST/HIGHLIGHT REACTION: Having to go on a double date with another beast member and his girlfriend

Doojoon: “let’s go! Let’s show that we’re the best couple ever”

Hyungseung: The happiest person in the world.

Junhyung: The kind who wouldn’t want to go at first and then wouldn’t want to go home because is to excited about the date.

Yoseob: Would agree at the same time and plan the whole date to be the best as possible.

“what a good idea!”

Kikwang: Would easily go with you, but would be the first to ask to leave.

“okay cool, but when do we leave?”

Dongwoon: More excited than you.

Margarita Levieva on Network - The Lines We Love (x)

We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is: ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.’

Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get MAD! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot – I don’t want you to write to your congressman, because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad. (shouting) You’ve got to say: ‘I’m a human being, god-dammit! My life has value!’

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell: ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take this anymore!’

Ok guys I am a big baby that’s is under a 400 day no toilet diapers only punishment. I have 359 more days left and then I under go 100 days of potty training with a real baby potty and pull ups.

And the address to send the diapers too so we can make this site awesome as it can be and the punishment of this bad baby to get his just deserves. Don’t miss this opportunity mommy’s daddys and other baby brothers and sisters out there bring it on and make this baby get his ass in check.

Free Kittens!

Heya is anyone in Florida looking for kittens? My cat had a litter of four, one black boy, one grey girl, and two grey and white, one a girl and the other a boy. They’re healthy, it won’t be much longer till they’re ready to be weened and we’ve gotta find homes for them, or else my dad wants to put them in a shelter and I’d hate for them to have to go to a place like that, I want to find them safe homes where they’ll be cared for because really they’re the sweetest things in this world. If anyone’s interested, please dm me? I can send pictures of them and whatnot and we can arrange things.
We would keep them ourselves but that would mean we’d have legit ten cats and we’re really low on money right now, we can’t afford any more in the family as much as it breaks my heart to have to let them go, so please, if anyone’s out there that’s closeish to Lake County FL, hit me up, or tell a friend?? 

There’s three things we want for everybody on earth. We want clean water, renewably produced, reliable electricity, and access to electronic information, to the internet. For everybody in the world. And my claim is that when you provide these services for everyone, the quality of life for everyone goes up. The motivation for people to become terrorists, the motivation for people to cheat at large goes down when their quality of life goes up.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
