in case you ever forget:

  • percy ripped out the minotaur’s horn with his bare hands and defeated the monster when he was only 12, with no training and no weapons.
  • he is able to recover from a hard kick in the chest from the god of war and continue fighting.
  • he strangled a snake when he was just a toddler.
  • he can feel the path of a bullet, which on average travels around 1700 mph, and deflect it.
  • he can fend off a continually resurrecting army of legionnaires while maintaining a hurricane the whole time.
  • he can cause earthquakes that can create a 50 foot hole in the middle of the Williamsburg bridge and can cause a whole glacier to shake and its entire edge to break.
  • and in addition to earthquakes, percy can bring the sea to him, releasing his raw power and the inexhaustible power of the sea that caused a volcanic eruption at Mt. St. Helens and woke Typhon, the most deadly creature in greek mythology.
  • he leaped across a 20 foot wide river while carrying annabeth on his back with his eyes closed.
  • he was the first to realize what was going on in the lotus casino.
  • he can control and explode the blood vessels of Tartarus, releasing the Phlegethon (liquid fire), the Styx, the Cocytus, and the Lethe.
  • percy can harden water into an almost solid shape that allows him to run across the surface and can also create giant hands that mimic his own movements that were able to grab onto the 2 gorgons holding frank.
  • he can create his own hurricanes, powerful enough to generate lightning and with winds strong enough to extinguish the titan Hyperion’s fires.
  • he was able to survive being thrown lava at by 4 full-grown telekhines (albeit it gradually got more painful, but he didn’t die immediately on contact).
  • percy was able to keep the argo ii from capsizing or being smashed to bits in a storm caused by Kymopoleia, the goddess of violent sea storms, simply by pushing his hands in the opposite direction every time the ship tilted.

During his time living in the city, David Bowie was known to browse the vinyl bins in record stores around his neighborhood. There are dozens of indie record stores in Brooklyn, so this Record Store Day Bowie is making his rounds.

“I’m wearing a piece of fabric that I made into a tube top. For bottoms I have these red and yellow motocross pants that I luckily thrifted. My style is inspired mostly by whatever I am feeling that day. Usually I’m inspired by artists from different decades such as the 70s and 90s. I obsessed with Jimi Hendrix and I am often inspired by his color schemes and weird prints.”
