I had kind of a nerd-out this morning. But I felt like everyone needed to know about this.
Reminder that the creators of Night Vale made their show without any corporate sponsorship or financial compensation other than donations and selling T-shirts and they made it to the number one slot on Itunes and they did it with a godblessed openly queer protagonist and an explicitly dark-skinned love interest thank you and good night.
…All the while supporting both financially and through social media/the show all of the indie creators they work with, highlighting their work and paying great rates. A+
this is what is going on in scotland right now.
dont ignore this.
there is NO coverage of the rioting on the news which is why its so important that you dont ignore this.
please stay safe if you live in scotland.
my partner actually went to the yes rally in george square a couple days ago and said the no guys were indeed doing nazi salutes
The unionists have set fire to the building housing The Herald.
A 15 year old boy is dead.
The riots continue.
My friends have been trying to get out of Glasgow and have been attacked.
Your voter status doesn’t matter to these people, they will attack for no reason.
Gay SNP councillor Austin Sheridan has been subjected to an unprovoked attack simply because he is a gay man who voted yes.
Homes have been broken into.
There are riots on the streets even outside of Glasgow.
The BNP, UKIP, Britain First and The Orange Lodge are attacking peaceful protestors with flares.
LGBT people are being singled out by the above groups.
DON’T LET THIS ABHORRENT SITUATION CONTINUE.
DO NOT LET THIS BE HIDDEN.
PLEASE, DO WHAT YOU CAN.
MY CITY AND COUNTRY IS UTTER CHAOS.
I am just trying to stay safe, for now.
Think of all that propaganda the NO campaign spread about the Scottish independence movement being some kind of sinister nationalism.
British nationalism, oh that’s totally fine. No sinister oppressive legacy at all.
riots are breaking out in glasgow right now, scottish flags are being burned, people are making nazi salutes, there is racism and sectarianism and god knows what else, there are supposed stabbings, people are being beaten up purely for voting Yes, but the bbc has decided that a news story more worthy of being reported is the first iphone 6 owner dropping his new phone. the anti-scottish bias from the bbc is reaching new levels of absurdity
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2014)
The year is 1925. Fresh out of Hogwarts, Newt Scamander finds himself struggling with the banality of working for the Ministry of Magic. When the United Wizarding Republic invites him to investigate a rogue dragon living in the sewer systems of New York City, however, Newt’s boring life is plunged into chaos. New York City is dark, dirty, and dazzling, but with a little help from Nella Larson and Duke Ellington - the brightest witch and wizard of their age - Newt finally starts to feel that New York is home. Together, the Nella and Duke teach Newt how to do the Charleston, how to buy Butterbeer off the blackmarket, and, of course, how to save New York City from a hoard of angry dragons.
Newt Scamander - Nathan Stewart-Jarrett
Nella Larson - Angel Coulby
Duke Ellington - Gary Carr
Oh hey, my tweet is featured here!!!
Again, unacceptable. You can’t be a TV critic and not do a google’s search worth of research on the shows you’re talking about. Especially not for the NEW YORK TIMES. Reducing and just plain bad journalism/writing.
If anything she is the lead because everything surrounded Abby and her families bloodline Ichabod is important and everything but the show would not have progressed with out her
So basically this week NYT shat all over Shonda Rhimes and now Nicole Beharie?
*panties off already*
