Lin-Manuel Miranda discusses hip-hop song forms in Hamilton

I studied musicals a lot, but I also, you know, as you can tell I’m a huge hip-hop fan. So I love hip-hop that tells stories, but I also like lots of different kinds of hip-hop (x)

big batch of freebie doodles for some WoW RPers! I was mostly trying to loosen up and have some fun, so please excuse the constant style changes. They were fun, and I hope you all like them, thanks for lending me your characters <3

Guten Tag ladies and gents!

I have an important announcement to make…I’m learning beginner Deutsch! I’m visiting Germany & Austria with a friend this summer, so I’m learning some basic German to travel with :) I’m excited to finally be learning a bit of this language…it’s been on my list for a long time, and I’ve even mentioned before that I have family friends who are German.

So far, the grammar has taken some getting used to. Coming from English there are a lot of cognates, though. And having language learning experience, it’s great being able to identify patterns and start to remember words and phrases.

You’ll start seeing a little German content on my blog now!

For...Me?

Prompt: I’m not sure if you’re still taking Nightcrawler requests, but I really like the idea that he’s not used to owning a lot of things bc of his time in the circus and he gets really excited when his s/o decides to get him something nice

Note: Awwwwwwwww little babyyyyyyy

Warnings: None?

You were walking through the mall with Jubilee, talking about boys mostly.

“Kurt is a sweetiepie.” Jubilee laughed. “You’re lucky.”

“I know,” you laughed. “He does this cute thing when he gets protective-”

“So always,”

“Yeah, but like, he growls and it’s sooooo cute.”

“He’s like a cat,” Jubilee giggled. You nodded.

“I’m dating a blue cat.”

“Complete with a tail and the need to perch on high things.”

“True,” you shook your head. The two of you walked into the nearest store and started looking around. Not so long after you started browsing the aisles, something caught your eye. Immediately, you thought of Kurt. So, naturally, you got it for him. It would be a surprise.

***

“Kurt~” you sing-songed, walking into his room.

“Ja?”

You held up the thing you had gotten him. It was a red t-shirt that had ‘Only the Cool Kids Speak German’ written on it in big bold white letters.

“This is for you,”

*Bamf*

“For…me?”

“Yeah,” you nodded, handing it to him. He held it in his hands, looking at it with wide eyes and a bright smile. He didn’t own very many things, even now that he could. But this…this was his. This was something he could call his own.

“Vhy?”

“Because I love you and I thought you would like it,” you smiled, tilting your head to the side. You stood on your toes and pressed a kiss to his cheek. He grinned the happiest grin you had seen in a long time.

“Danke so much!” He pulled you into his arms and buried his head in your shoulder. “I love it,”

“I’m glad,” you smiled, laughing. His tail swayed, seeming to display his happiness. You rubbed his back and he tried (and failed) to contain a little purr. You smiled, kissing his cheek. All of his little noises were so cute. “Awwwwwww,”

“Vas?”

“Your little purrs are so cute!” you hugged him tighter. He laughed, blushing.

“I’m glad you zhink so. Zhey just seem to slip out sometimes.”

You released from the hug and motioned to the shirt in his hand.

“Put it on, I want to make sure it fits. I think I got the right size, but-”

*Bamf*

Kurt disappeared in a puff of smoke and came back a few seconds later, wearing the new shirt and a jubilant smile.

“It fits.”

“Good,” you took both of his hands. He kissed your nose. You smiled, blushing at his cute little gesture. “You’re precious.”

“Am I a…vhat vere you and Jubilee calling me again?”

“Cinnamon roll, too pure for this world.”

“Ja, zhat.”

“Yes. You are.” you brushed locks of his thick dark hair out of his face and tucked them behind his pointed ear. “Now let’s go show the others how cute you look.”

“I vould like zhat,”

anonymous asked:

I don't know if you are in many other fandoms but I will ask anyway, this is first fandom I have really been in and my question is are all fandoms this toxic and full of hate? So many "fans" just seem to rip everything apart for no real reason like saying TFA destroyed Star Wars and it's the worst movie ever made. I mean come on grow up I think if Star Wars wouldn't be part of Disney there would be less hate.

Hmm, well to give you a quick rundown of my fandom experiences…

1. Labyrinth - completely chilled, relaxed and drenched with nostalgia, everyone was pretty much cool and calm. There was occasional bitching over Henson Company’s handling of the property, but there was little to no in-fighting or bitchiness among fans (not in my experience, anyway).

2. Jupiter Ascending - a haven of solidarity. This fandom is very much characterised by an ‘us against the world’ mentality because JA got critically trashed and was widely reviled. This resulted in a very close-knit and supportive fandom where people were pretty much exclusively friendly and encouraging.

3. The Force Awakens - a stormy sea of mayhem and drama. You get extreme highs and lows, in my experience. Star Wars is extremely popular, which means this fandom is on another level of exposure to the others I’ve been involved with in the past. You do get incredibly active, passionate and intelligent communities creating art, analysis and edits with a level of frequency unheard of in my previous fandoms, but you also get a proliferation of shipping antis and petty dramas that have a tendency to poison the atmosphere. 

So, the short answer is that it’s definitely not the case in all fandoms. It just so happens that Star Wars fandom is large enough to leave room for the drama, in-fighting and negativity that other, smaller fandoms simply don’t have time for. I love being in Star Wars and specifically TFA fandom, but it can be hard work and I understand why people find it stressful. My view is that it’s worth all of the drama and negativity for all of the wonderful stuff that comes out of it, but I know some people ultimately throw up their hands and decide it isn’t worth their time. 

I’d say the TFA/Disney hate is something I experience less of because that kind of whinging tends to be confined to fanboy heavy circles outside of Tumblr. In short, I remain blissfully detached from that nonsense, and intend to remain so.

2017 4CC FP

Wasn’t that exciting!!  I had excitement from Hanyu’s 4 minute Fp you normally get from a 2 hour action movie!!!  It gave me energy enough that I stayed the whole day despite waking up early to watch him!!  With a cold, fever and headache!!!  How’s that!? (how many energy drinks does that count?).

This is what I like about this guy!!  He’s a fighter who never gives up!!  He looks like a harmless Pooh but inside he has spirit & courage of the bravest men!!  God bless him and protect him.

Ok.. calm down!!  Honestly I was watching the Fp live and praying the whole time, I didn’t see the spins nor his step sequences!!  My eyes were locked on his jumps only until the end!!  I didn’t notice that he didn’t do the biellmann spin nor any other move OO just jump safely and I’ll enjoy the program later!!

When he popped his 4S, I went into space.. somewhere near Pluto.. noooooooooo.. but I teleported back to earth immediately when his second 3A combination changed and he jumped another jump!!  Wait!!  Was that a Quad just now??  And from the score I knew he did and got crazily excited and then the 3A jump came last!!  Oh my god Oh my god.. He did it.. (screaming & crying without a sound cause everyone’s sleeping)!!!

To be honest.. when he popped his 4S combination, I was wondering if he’ll attempt that 4S he practiced at the end as some fans reported!!  But I’m glad he went for the 4T instead!!  So relieved..

To change jump layouts is not that easy, I remember Oda the Japanese skater said once that it’s impossible, it’s too difficult.  Cause you ought to make mistakes.. that’s how Hanyu’s a genius!!

((Another thing that amazed me -he never stops to amaze me- he actually changed his 3A-2T combination into 3A-3T.. now that, i didn’t notice at all.. so he was preparing from the 6th Jump, he removed the 2T to put it with the 4T!!  Just subarashii, he’s really a crazy genius.  In the picture above the changes he did are in yellow))

If only he didn’t do a combination with that popped 4S.. he could have used the third combination with the last 3A and won!!  But that’s asking too much of him!!  He would be super human if he did that!!!  What he did was already great!!  It was an emergency, he panicked maybe and did a one turn jump in a desperate attempt, but patched that mistake greatly after that.

Though he didn’t win the gold!  I’m so satisfied with this FP, personally I think he deserved the Gold! His artistry is first class –even in state of panic-, and he moved and surprised everyone with those sudden changes even his coach didn’t expect it, I would give him points for that too.. but what happened happened! And it’s not like Chen didn’t deserve it.. he’s one tough rival who popped suddenly!!  I’m sure Hanyu is uncontrollably excited!!  ((Which will put more worries and nervousness on us, his fans and his poor coach))!!

Congratulations to Shoma too.. lol, I’m gonna start calling him the bronze champion.. he’s always third!!  Shoma ganbare.. and work on your stamina..

Yoku Ganbatta.. See you in Worlds!  Ja mata..
