Sophie, this has been the best day of your life, and I couldn’t be happier for you. Taylor Swift invited you to her house…. what even?? This has been our dream forever. We talk late at night about this kind of stuff and its so so crazy that you got to meet her, let alone spend 3 HOURS with her? We’ve had late night 3am talks/freak outs about taylor and how we were so scared we’d never meet her, and then this happens and it honestly means the world to me because it shows that taylor cares so much. I love you so much you gorgeous girl, and I don’t know a single person who deserves it better. I’m so glad to call you my best friend, and I’m so glad that taylor brought us together.
PS: To anyone who hates on Sophie, BACK OFF. She’s so deserving of everything that happened today. I’ve never ever been happier. You’ll have me to deal with :)
“Kavinsky was a tiny monarch in a vast and uncertain world, but he ruled his kingdom with all the comfort of an iron fist. Proko didn’t care what he’d taken, how much he’d had to drink. They were all wasted in one way or another. They were symbiotic organisms, and Proko wanted it to last forever.
“He still had that day, when they’d linked arms and sworn in front of God and everyone that they’d never grow old.”
“ronan lynch loved to dream about light” is one of my favorite things ever, because you have this boy, this boy who everyone thinks is mean and awful and scary and dark and incapable of softness and affection, and he dreams himself a little brother whom he cares about more than anything, he dreams himself a little girl who he protects as if she were his own sister, he dreams animals to live at his house and he feeds them and pets them, he dreams himself a bird who he raises himself, he dreams his best friend epi-pens and armor to save his life in the potential face of danger, he dreams his crush hand lotion because he notices his hands getting dry, and the thing about ronan is he’s always described by others as a snake, as a weapon, as a tool for injury, but that isnt who he is at all, he’s soft and gentle and affectionate and loving and caring, and its in his dreams, the one place where he is king and god and can control himself and what he produces that he chooses to produce good, produce light
WWE is deeply saddened that Virgil Runnels, aka “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes — WWE Hall of Famer, three-time NWA Champion and one of the most captivating and charismatic figures in sports entertainment history — passed away today at the age of 69.

WWE extends its sincerest condolences to Runnels’ family, friends and colleagues.
I’ve heard arguments that “He’s like a drug” and John waking up panting from Sherlock dreams is about John’s addiction to adventure/the cases
And on rewatching, I almost believed them because just LOOK at him:
Mycroft threatens to plant child porn on anyone who mentions Magnussen again, and before Myc’s even cleared the hallway John just
And then he literally examines his fingernails playing like he doesn’t care as he faux-casually says
And when Sherlock says “Too big and dangerous for any sane individual to get involved in,” look at John’s left hand go as he says
God, John, you’re legit fucked up about not being involved in the cases
I see now
NOTHING is more important to you than the ADVENTURE
John no, NOTHING is more important to you than the ADVENTURE, your hand was clenching from WAR MEMORIES when you thought you were gonna be left out of the CASE, now let’s focus:
….. okay John, okay, the Janine thing was shocking for all of us. But now that’s out of your system, and Sherlock will get you back on track because #SherlockHolmes'sCaseloadLives means #JohnWatsonLives
I mean your tone leaves a little to be desired given, like, your random shouting and fist clenching when you thought you were gonna be left out of the great adventure
And frankly, I’m not sure this annoyed gesture was necessary
But hey at least now we’re back on track feeding that addiction of yours, and NOTHING is more important than the ADVENTURE -

Its actually amazing to be tao biased right now. He fulfilled his long term(even before exo) dream to put out music. He is filming cute varieties right now, everybody who has worked with him is head over heels for him and are always giving him support and love. He has sold over 650k albums already and people are praising and acknowledging his talent left and right. He is back at home, together with his family and most caring people by his side. He is healthy and happy and most of all free, free to do whatever he wants to do. so yes i am actually very very happy that i am tao biased right now.
We’re proud to announce that there are now more than 300 million Instagrammers. Over the past four years, what began as two friends with a dream has grown into a global community that shares more than 70 million photos and videos each day. Instagram is home to creativity in all of its forms, a place where you can find everything from images of the Nile River to the newest look from Herschel Supply or a peek inside the mind of Taylor Swift.
We’re thrilled to watch this community thrive and witness the amazing connections people make over shared passions and journeys.
As Instagram gets bigger, we’re focused on helping you discover photos and videos from people who you care about, whether it’s a friend or your favorite musician. Last month, we launched a People tab on the Explore page, which highlights interesting accounts to follow, and we also launched improvements to search. Yet people ask, ‘When it comes to public figures and brands, how do I know that the people I discover on Instagram are really who they say they are? How do I know that this person really is Tony Hawk?’
Today, we’re excited to announce verified badges for celebrities, athletes and brands, making it easier for you to connect with the authentic accounts you’re looking for. These badges will start rolling out over the coming days.
Finally, as more people join, keeping Instagram authentic is critical—it’s a place where real people share real moments. We’re committed to doing everything possible to keep Instagram free from the fake and spammy accounts that plague much of the web, and that’s why we’re finishing up some important work that began earlier this year.
We’ve been deactivating spammy accounts from Instagram on an ongoing basis to improve your experience. As part of this effort, we will be deleting these accounts forever, so they will no longer be included in follower counts. This means that some of you will see a change in your follower count.
Most of you won’t see any impact. If you’re one of those who will see a correction, you will receive a notification in the app directing you to additional information.
Thank you for your passion, creativity and support over these past four years. We can’t wait to see what you do next.
I really wish everyone would stop with this “disney is racist” bullshit. When little kids watch a disney movie, the first thing they think isn’t “why is she this color?” They think about how magical the story is. Who cares about the skin color of cartoon characters really? There’s many different races and religions in Disney movies. I never really paid attention until I saw the “disney is racist” posts on tumblr & I doubt that many other people did either. Its about dreams & joy.
the korrasami car scene was a scene we’d all been hoping for and dreaming of for such a long time - korrasami shippers and non-shippers alike - everyone who wanted them to be friends, the very best of friends, and believed they would. some people doubted it would ever happen - some, like me, always believed. but regardless of who you are you can fucking say it now: these girls care about each other more than any other shit and that’s so fucking important and makes this show so fucking important.
awkwardness is bryke’s favorite but they take it and turn it into something so awesome in the end, always - zuko and the gaang post-western air temple, korra and asami from now and always into the future. they make you suffer for it. is it cruel? kind of. is it worth it in the end? always.
It makes me laugh when all these stupid teen (and some adult) blogs say things like “white oppressors should die!”, “fuck white people” etc. At the same time their blogs are anime themed, have favourite anime characters, reblog a shitton of anime crap, and a lot of them dream of one day going to the amazing Japan.
Like wow you kids are so knowledgeable! Wow your opinions have so much accuracy! I guess its okay that once upon a time up until 1945 Japan (btw that is where your favourite senpai comes from) was committing heinous crimes against Asian countries. Lets all forget the mass genocide that the glorious nation of Japan did! What’s best is that there are Japanese that deny this ever happened (sound familiar?) and in their textbooks there is not much said about this. But who cares about Nanking when your favourite anime is going to air this summer!
Countries that were forcibly annexed into Japanese reign were forced to become soldiers (or they would be killed and then their family would be raped and killed) and then commit war crimes against their own people.
Quoted by Chalmers Johnson:
“The Germans killed six million Jews and 20 million Russians; the Japanese slaughtered as many as 30 million Filipinos, Malays, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Indonesians and Burmese, at least 23 million of them ethnic Chinese. Both nations looted the countries they conquered on a monumental scale, though Japan plundered more, over a longer period, than the Nazis. Both conquerors enslaved millions and exploited them as forced labourers – and, in the case of the Japanese, as prostitutes for front-line troops.” [x]
Germany has gone out of its way to compensate for the atrocities they have committed (even if primarily due to Western pressure). Japan? Not so much because the countries it had devastated were still struggling.
If your response to all this is “that’s in the past, they’re not like that anymore!” “Japanese are great peaceful people! Not all Japanese people are like this.” Then congratulations for being another apologist and you’re no different from the people you hate so much. You’re just glorifying rape culture, xenophobia, and racism even more.
For those that are interested in truly learning the ACTUAL history I recommend reading The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang.
I’m probably not going to stop watching some anime because good animation is good animation and there are great Japanese people who know and speak against the atrocities their nation has committed. But no way am I going to glorify a nation that still has not properly repented or fixed the insane damage they have done. That’s for all you idiots to do because you guys are the pro hypocrites.
Azoff is not your Godfather, he’s The GodfatherTM.
It feels like there are a number of people who imagine that Azoff is above certain kinds of stunts or maneuvering. That maybe he’s the manager we’ve always dreamed of with impeccable ethics and moral fortitude. I believe he is one of the smartest men in the business and isn’t to be fucked with.
So, here’s my comparison: your Godfather takes care of you when your parents are way, spoils you, tells you you’re great, is largely a snuggly type presence in your life. The GodfatherTM will rain hellfire down on people who have wronged those under his protection. People owe him favors and their lives. He’s smarter and more cunning than anyone else you know.
You know what makes me happy? The GodfatherTM has Harry and Louis under his protection. That’s all I need to know right now.
Damien (Elba), makes the mistake of going into business with, Boothe (Ejiofor), a man who won’t even tell him his first name and all hell breaks loose from there. Damien thinks they’re simply starting a small restaurant, and at first he doesn’t care how he gets there, this restaurant has been his dream and he’ll do anything to realize it, but he soon sees that food isn’t the only thing being transported through the kitchen. It doesn’t help that the staff, two brothers from who-knows-where (Jarrett and Boyega), a rich playboy (Laviscount), and a prodigy who was just mysteriously discharged from the British Armed Forces (Enoch), seem to be tied to Boothe in someway. Damien isn’t sure what he’s gotten into with the motley crew,and who knows if he’ll even be able to get out of it.
The writer who cares more about words than about story – characters, action, setting, atmosphere – is unlikely to create a vivid and continuous dream; he gets in his own way too much; in his poetic drunkenness, he can’t tell the cart – and its cargo – from the horse.
