do not think about your crush in an old sweatshirt with scruffy hair and a sleepy smile ok dont think about them humming to themselves as they make breakfast in this attire ok dont think about how the light hits them as they sit down across from you and eat breakfast ok just dONT
the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the effects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
Except when the original intent behind the ice bucket/cold water challenge wasn’t intended specifically for ALS, but any cause for which you wished to raise awareness.
I’m supportive of raising awareness and donations, but don’t tell me ALS and cold water are remotely similar. It’s literally an ultimatum of “donate or subject yourself to freezing cold water” - momentarily feeling loss caused by freezing water isn’t justification. Sorry.
King Kong the Musical happened. Did it need to happen? No. Did it happen? Yes.
*Spoiler* King Kong doesn’t sing.
One of the quoted reviews says “redefined musical theatre” and I really hope it doesn’t…. Lord have mercy.
In the video it says it redefined the MUSICAL. Not musical theatre. The structure remains the same. I think they are implying that they have been able to incorporate new technology into a musical that seems to remain with the classic structure (dance numbers, love plot, etc.) - Many people, including myself, believed Ghost made a mark on the technological advances that can be brought to the theatre. This show does the same thing with its set and puppetry design, but remains true to the classic structure that we all know and love.
Is this a good show? I have no clue. But I wanted to give the creators (and the person who claimed that this show redefined the ‘musical’ gets the benefit of the doubt.)
I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.(via versteur)
Everyone’s opinions and beliefs in this world are valid. You don’t have to agree with any of them. This whole Ferguson situation is awful. BUT the corrupt policemen/law enforcements involved have a valid opinion. Racism is NOT okay. But keep in mind racism is TAUGHT. Anyone who is seen performing racist acts came from an unfortunate upbringing and have decided not to change because it is rooted in them. People CAN change. Some do not wish to change. Understand that although racism is awful, people will remain racist because THEY BELIEVE IT TO BE NORMAL AND OKAY. I am DEFENDING THE PEOPLE NOT THEIR BELIEFS. You cannot help the fact someone is against a race. You can only respect someone even if they are unwilling to respect you. And yes, this even means where death is involved. We know that fighting fire with fire is useless. Holding your tongue and refraining from violence in retaliation is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE, but it CAN be done.
Continue to spread love and support. That’s all we can do. If you believe in the power of love and support then we can build a better tomorrow.
If by ‘fuck the police’ you mean fuck the corrupt, prejudiced, racist system then yes, fuck the police, but if you mean fuck the police for stopping you from smoking weed and getting away with illegal behaviour then no, fuck you.
