Singing from the Shadows


Welp, you don’t have a chance in hell now, Pandora. Yami was willing to let you off before but not now.


I’ve watched this at least a hundred times.


Jupiter’s great red spot. A hurricane three times the size of our whole planet that’s been raging for centuries.


stereotypes against white people are not dangerous at all. no one is out here stopping and frisking you guys for liking starbucks and chipotle. meanwhile, black teenagers suspected of being “thugs” and “threats” are slain on sight so please calm the fuck down and learn how to take a joke


help me

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.



You know what the Green Heron is basically the best heron because it is like 90% neck so when it is all folded down it looks like a giant head with wings and legs


but then suddenly ZOOP


fucking green herrons

What the fuck

If we get a gameplay demo of Final Fantasy XV (which says that it’s really representative of what the final product will be) at Tokyo Game Show, I would totally forgive the lack of info at E3 (not that I think I’m entitled to it or anything). I think I would actually be frustrated if all we get is another trailer this year (I’m also hoping to FINALLY know the names/bios of all the other characters that appeared in the 2013 trailer and hear some different music instead of the same two songs over and over again. And, above all, a genuine release date.).

Everyone else seems to be hoping for a new trailer (and I’m hoping to see one for KH3 at TGS, because the 2013 didn’t reveal too much. But again, I would rather they use their time to just develop instead of trailer because I’d rather have the game sooner than see another trailer), but honestly, I’m sick and tired of those. I would rather that Square Enix devotes their time to just finishing the game and getting it released instead of spending more precious time and money developing yet another trailer. I mean, think of how many we’ve gotten already (especially compared to actual in-game footage).

I also wish they would have said: “there will be new things at Tokyo Game Show” when they said they won’t show anything new at E3. The fact that they didn’t makes me a little nervous (and doubtful of Hashimoto when he says that “development is going smoothly.”). I think that this guy  may very well have been right when he said that it seems that Square themselves don’t seem to know when this thing is finally going to be finished and ready for people to play. I just want to know what the heck is going on (and why they seem to think it’s better to stay almost silent and let more and more people think that it’s never coming out or is a completely unsalvageable mess).

Sorry, just more of my silly rambling.


Today the Department of Awesome Natural Wonders takes us to Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi, Japan, home to the country’s largest great wisteria. This colossal blooming vine is 144 years old and covers an area measuring 1,990 square meters (half an acre). Its numerous heavy branches are held up by a vast network of steel supports. In the spring countless racemes of pink and purple flowers bloom to form a vibrant canopy that practically brushes the heads of the park’s many visitors. If you’re planning a visit, the best time to behold this awesomely enchanting sight is from late April to mid May.
