HI GUYS. so i’ve been wanting to try my hand at blogging/posting real media criticism and now this show “faking it” has spurned a lot of conversation and i’ve decided to create a blog and post weekly recaps/critiques. i’m SUPER new to the whole blogging thing so feel free to give me feedback about that aspect of things too, if you check it out. this right here is just an introductory post where i talk about the value of looking at the positives and negatives of what the show might do - i’ll be posting again later today after i watch the first episode. please take a look!
My friend is writing this and I’m really excited to read it (even if I don’t watch the show)
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!

Friendly reminder that this creepy moment existed.
I love when people de-romanticize Snape, THANK YOU.
the unfortunate thing about Snape is that people forget that, while he was a good character, that did not make him a good person.
Things I’ve been thinking forever but never knew how to say it
