TEEN WOLF “the rubble or our sins” (fanvid)

a video focusing on the core five: Scott, Stiles, Allison, Lydia & Derek.

This video is seriously amazing. Like i have to come out of the tags to tell you how amazing it is so that you don’t just scroll past it and not watch it. Because it captures the last three seasons of teen wolf perfectly, focusing on the core characters, and makes you feel a billion things. So watch and reblog this (feel free to delete my review when you do). You won’t regret it.

You all know I love the horrible things and don’t generally cry or do the whole “I just want them to be happy” thing. But this video made me tear up and want to cuddle them all and go “my poor babies.”

It’s absolutely gorgeous, and you should stop what you’re doing to watch it right now.

help my face is wet I can’t breathe

During the Civil War, the federal government needed millions of uniforms, so it ordered its contractors to measure more than a million men in order to establish standard sizes. When peace came, civilian clothiers used these statistics to produce men’s coats and pants in sizes that were more realistic, less riddled with guesswork than earlier ready-mades.

THE FUCK YOU SAY THAT’S WHY MEN’S CLOTHING SIZES MAKE ELEVENTY MILLION TIMES MORE SENSE?

This fantastic little booklet was issued to US troops headed to Britain in 1942. It contains some useful pointers and charming attempts at cultural sensitivity.
On “British Women at War,” the following information is given:

A British woman officer or non-commissioned officer can and often does give orders to a man private. The men obey smartly and know it is no shame. For British women have proven themselves in this war. They have stuck to their posts near burning ammunition dumps, delivered messages afoot after their motorcycles have been blasted from under them. They have pulled aviators from burning planes. They have died at gun posts and as they fell another girl has stepped directly into the position and “carried on.” There is not a single record in this war of any British woman in uniformed service quitting her post or failing in her duty under fire.
Now you understand why British soldiers respect the women in uniform. They have won the right to the utmost respect. When you see a girl in khaki or air-force blue with a bit of ribbon on her tunic - remember she didn’t get it for knitting more socks than anyone else in Ipswich.

The full text can be read here. Here is a story from LIFE magazine outlining the use of the booklet. eatingcroutons has also posted a photo of this excerpt from the booklet, which you can see here.

Get Those Clicking Fingers Ready, It’s Poll Time!!
There are three polls going on right now that involve Sterek. All of them can be voted for as much as you want, so get ready, get set and go go go! (please please please, no bots!)
The first actually involves yours truly, the Sterek Campaign, as well as all of you who helped make our charity auction events over the past two years such a success! We’re up for Fandom Feat of the Year in the MTVU Fandom Awards! 
The second is also a part of the MTVU Fandom Awards, but this one is just for Sterek, the amazing ship that has brought us all together. Vote Sterek for Ship of the Year!
Both MTVU Fandom Awards Polls end TONIGHT at 9pm EST, so there’s just over 4 hours left!!!
The final poll is one that we as a fandom are very, very familiar with! The BackLot Ultimate Slash Madness Tourney is back and once again Sterek is in the running for the crown. We won this tournament during the heyday of Sterek back in 2012 and came in second to Destiel last year. Remember, this tournament was started because of Sterek. Think we can reclaim our title? We do! Just head on over to the Slash Madness Tourney and vote vote vote!
The first round ends Friday night (July 25th) at midnight EST!


but does voting for sterek in this context do anything but prove to davis et al that they don’t have to actually have stiles and derek do any scenes together even, that their fanbase is secure without them doing anything to encourage it?

In the Eighties, when I was in college in 1988. That was almost the end of the military dictatorship. I was a student protester. I was part of a lot of demonstrations against the government and I would have to run away from riot police. In one particular instance, I ran away and opened a random door and ended up in a very classy, high-end hotel. I found myself in this lobby where there was piano music and just two seconds ago they were shooting tear gas at me. There I was listening to Mozart and guests were dressed up in nice clothes drinking coffee as if nothing was going on. I was just in a daze, thinking ‘where am I’? That feeling is definitely a part of the sushi bar scene. Bong Joon-ho (x)
