It Made Sense at the Time, Okay?

magpiedminx:

I often use Google to check the word I’m using means what I think it means.

I blame Inigo Montoya.

I’m reasonably certain that Ronia the Robber’s Daughter has dark and frizzy hair in book canon, too, not just in illustrations. (There’s a scene where she thinks about how she loves combing Birk’s smooth hair.)

I’d love a Black/mixed reimagining of Ronia. (Mixed race Black/Sami? Why not?)

You can get a pretty decent estimate of my anxiety level by asking me to touch a block of raw, hard cheese. (Current level: wouldn’t even touch it to get shredded cheese for my pasta.)

The sensory experience of touching the cheese is squicky, and how well I deal with squick is inversely correlated to my levels of anxiety.

My short hair is so pretty, and I’m so pretty, and you are all welcome to crash our place and play with my hair, because apparently, I love having my hair ruffled.

O. M. G. I’m, as always, in awe of the Teen Wolf intro sequence. Short, but so beautiful, and shock full of symbolism. (Derek invokes “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” so well…)

I feel I need to direct you to this.

Not bad, but definitely not up to the visual standard of the show itself.

Nah, the theme music and intro is so amazing it really makes the show itself look kinda cheap. 

Got to disagree. The fanvid was choppy, just with scenes from the show (and the real intro). What I love about the intro is the slowness and the symbolism. All the scenes in the intro are purposefully made, none are recycled from episode footage. They have a normal speed — slow motion — optional high speed/time lapse — normal speed rhythm that’s absolutely gorgeous. (And let’s talk about lighting. I can talk about Teen Wolf lighting all day.) Scott is doused in water, a baptism/cleansing, while attacked by himself. Allison is multiplied, like her allegiance, going from a kiss to violence. Derek is, as I said, rising out of the ashes of everything he loves, like a Phoenix. Stiles goes from light to dark, foreshadowing the Nogitsune (and his general amorality). Lydia is falling, because she feels her whole life is falling apart, and in season three, she’s also screaming. (I wish they had kept the scream instead of the fall in season four.)

The votes for Swedish parliament. Date and time included in the screencap. The first three is the opposition that ends on ca 43% of the votes. The next four is the conservative “Alliance” ends on ca 39%.
The yellow one? That is the racist, xenophobic, homophobic and generally unpleasant “Sverige demokraterna” or SD (trans. Swedish Democrats). This means the racists becomes able to tip the scales in parliament.
Great job! (Sarcasm)

This utter buffoon now leads a party that has outright Nazis in their group. They have conducted meetings in Nazi uniforms.They sing Nazi battle songs on their “conference.”
A group of them filmed themselves using racial slurs towards a young couple, the woman was caucasian and the man a person of colour. Then these high end politicians picked up iron pipes to assault the couple (and claimed self defense). All on film on their smartphone.
By all the gods I thought Sweden was better than this. Suddenly it is accepted to spout racist propaganda on the streets, in the subway and in parliament. The image of the careful, just and kind Swedish diplomat is shattered by iron pipes.

I cannot tell you how much this upsets me.




On the plus side - the left, center left, center right, and right-of-center-right right have all looked at this result and their asshole’s “they HAVE to take us seriously and talk to us now!!!!!” screams, done the math (all the other minority stakes add up together to make a larger majority than SD’s 12.9%) and said “yeah. No, actually, we don’t. And we don’t want to. Can we flat-pack you and ship you to North Korea? You’re making us look bad.”  

Swedish right and left may not agree on much - although they actually do agree on quite a bit - but one thing they can unanimously agree on is that those SD creeps are freaky and weird and really need to go somewhere where Sweden’s government is not. Helheim’s nice this time of year. So’s Jotunheim.

Great fic, Sterek with a strict Derek PoV.

…and he mentally labels 23 year old Stiles (that he just got to know) as “the kid” even during sex.

No. Just… Don’t.

Good Stuff, Big Things: Who is Dean Smith, really?

I did go and re-watch 4.17 last night and took notes on Dean Smith’s characteristics and habits along the way. As a preface since I’m making this response public I’ll reiterate a bit. I think Dean Smith is a combination of three things: a) Zachariah constructing a fake life for Dean Winchester that reflects (and betrays) Zach’s opinions of him; b) Zachariah deliberately putting him into a life diametrically opposed to his real one; and to the least extent c) a legitimate suggestion of one of the myriad ways Dean could have turned out had circumstances been different.

As the episode wore on and the list grew I began to notice that these traits are, with few exceptions, common to both Dean Smith and Dean Winchester. Take away the 401k from one and the leather jacket from the other and the core personality is the same. Here’s the compiled list:

I have great hair. Long, untreated (not colored or permed), thick, and a very nice dark brown.

I’ve also had long hair for twenty years, and needed a change.

So, today, I sold my hair to a wig maker, and asked them to pass the money on as a discount to the next person who needs a wig for medical reasons.

To all my international friends: if I seem down, it’s because the racists just became the third largest party in the Swedish Parliament: http://www.thelocal.se/page/view/reinfeldt-steps-down-after-election-defeat

If you’re wondering about the parties, this is a reasonably accurate article (ignore the fluff pieces about the party leaders): http://www.thelocal.se/20140905/swedish-party-leaders
