E.M. Forster, A Room with a View
Look! I made these Who-liday themed prints! They are adorable, JUST LIKE YOU.
In case you are as terrible at math as I am (I had my cat work the calculator), that is basically one print for free. Mostly this is out of holiday charity and love for my fellow Who fans, but also it is because no one is gonna buy that Silence print unless I force him on you in the combo pack (too scary or something? I don’t know what you people want from me).
Each print is 5x7, which is a standard frame size. That means it’d be hella easy to pop these suckers in a store bought frame, throw ‘em in a Christmas bag, and then launch them off of your roof in the direction of your loved ones homes via trebuchet, as is traditional.
However, because I am a quality craftsman, these prints are printed on gloriously thick and snowy paper, which means they can easily be turned into Christmas cards by writing heartfelt seasonal greetings on the blank side, with no threat of bleed through! (unless you use blood. don’t use blood. i mean, i know nobody is using blood these days but still, my cousin Robert might be on here and you can never be too careful.)
Watermark not included!
Professionally printed on enhanced matte paper!
my extra sensitive toothpaste doesnt like it when i use other toothpastes
UPDATE: We’ve confirmed with Lionsgate that Antonius has been added to Mockingjay as a new minor character created for the film. He’ll be President Snow’s Minister.
it doesnt matter if the glass is half full or half empty all that matter is if the glass contains vodka
So I was just rereading Catching Fire, and I was at the part when Katniss is trying to figure out why everyone is protecting Peeta in the arena. And then I had a horrible realization. They were protecting him so that Katniss wouldn’t lose it or do something stupid. But no one…
Really, the best thing about this casting news is that there is maybe a greater chance that Delly could still be included. But I do hope that it means that Peeta’s treatment in D13 will be part of MJ1-leaves more time in MJ2 to grow back together.
Robert Knepper is cast as Dr Antonius, a formally trained doctor in District 13 (previously from the Capitol)

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

Celebrating Aviation with Magee’s “High Flight”
You may be familiar with these lines—the first of John Gillespie Magee, Jr.’s 1941 sonnet “High Flight”. Many of us likely recognize them from President Ronald Reagan’s speech on the day of the Challenger disaster, but “High Flight” has a much longer history with aviators and astronauts.
In 1966, astronaut Michael Collins took the text of the poem with him into space during the Gemini 10 mission. Cadets at the United States Air Force Academy must learn to recite it from memory. In addition, “High Flight” is showcased in a number of films produced by the United States Air Force, like the one below.
John Gillespie Magee, Jr. was an American who joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940, before the United States entered World War II. He wrote “High Flight” shortly before he was killed in a midair collision on December 11, 1941. In his honor, we present you with a short 1972 Air Force film celebrating the joy of flight.
maybe i’m a goddamn bleeding heart hippie liberal but i’m totally down with paying an extra .50 cents for a thing of fries if the person who makes me those fries doesn’t have to work 3 jobs just to survive.
