// Hey, friends, I just had someone try a fishing attempt on my blog.  If it wasn’t a bot and instead a real person: back up, creep.

That being said, apparently this is a thing that has happened before to other people, and I’m grateful for my suspicion.  If you get a youtube video (one by C.rosa R.osa in my case - apparently a favorite for this) randomly sent in as a submission, and you see some name with a sketchy h.otmail email address linked to it, DO NOT CLICK ON THE EMAIL ADDRESS.  The video is just a link to y.outube, yes, but the email link is not.  It is a fishing attempt and will lead you to a blank page.  Fortunately I looked this up before I did anything, so joke’s on you asshole.

This is so incredibly random, and I’ve never had this happen before, but it weirded me tf out enough to make a post about it.

Anyway, again, for that person who submitted that - get the hell off of my blog and off of tumblr.  Ridiculous.

Hey heads up, this is what it looks like:

I don’t usually click on the e-mail anyway, but thank God for this post. I’m blocking and deleting this submission.
Watch out, guys !

I just got 2 of them in quick succession.  -_-  Be safe, friends!


This is what I posted about earlier!!
When I hovered my cursor over the name/email to see what kind of pornbot blog preview came up, it was blank.
I did not click on anything. I deleted the submission.

Does anyone else...


… Have this one muse, that their muse just crumbles for? Like, they say ‘hi’ and your muse just goes ‘in the kitchen or on the bed?’

Local Fish Store Fire


First of all, I’m not affiliated with this store. I’m a customer and I love them, they’ve always been the image of what a LFS should strive to be. Spacious and species-appropriate tanks, a huge variety of fish, plants, and corals, and great advice from knowledgeable staff.
Early Friday morning, a fire (cause undetermined) broke out in the back of the store. The losses have been enormous, and this small business is devastated. I thought it would be the right thing to do to at least post their GoFundMe on tumblr after this disaster. Please share if you can, and if you’re in a position where you can spare a dollar, I’m sure they’d really appreciate it!

Thank you, guys!

I say, jolly good show, chaps. And did I panic? I think not.

#the comic relief who is genuinely comic  #and who makes the ‘incompetent bufoon’ trope actually work as an endearing quality as originally intended  #well played movie - well played  #john hannah  #WHAT A FOX

#but! BUT!!!#THE GREAT THING ABOUT JONATHAN#IS HE’S NOT INCOMPETENT#he can read ancient Egyptian albeit not as well as his baby sister#he clearly has an interest in archaeology if only for treasure-related reasons#he had to go through intensive schooling to get the sort of permit required#to even have digs of his own#WHICH HE CLEARLY DOES#on a dig down in Thebes#he says and Evie believes him#Jonathan reads from the Book of the Living and he’s an excellent shot with a rifle and is clearly a boxer#Jonathan is SO COMPETENT and SO IMPORTANT#while simultaneously being plucky comic relief without JUST being plucky comic relief#u get me?

Jonathan, like Phryne Fisher, clearly hasn’t taken anything seriously since 1918.

And, I would suspect, for similar reasons.

^^^This. Jonathan being in World War I makes total sense. It’s almost impossible for him not to have been. Given his age and background, he probably volunteered in 1914.  

Of course he’s going to not take anything seriously. Of course he can shoot. The drinking, the skittishness, the recklessness, the sense of ‘keeping your head down’, the scepticism about traditional heroism….

The one with more actual experience of death, carnage and fighting is Jonathan. Not Rick. Not Ardeth Bey. Jonathan.

When Rick says ‘I’ve had worse (situation/odds)’ and Jonathan replies “ Me too”. That’s probably true

Drop The Mummy into the real world context and that’s a character who’s going to have seen a lot of his school friends die, along with the myths and tales of heroism they were raised on. Sort of makes the line where Evie’s scolding him for drinking/messing about a lot darker…

Evie: Have you no respect for the dead? Jonathan: Of course I do, but sometimes I’d rather like to join them.

Some facts about capitalism:

  • Artificial scarcity drives profits up
  • It is not profitable for everyone to live comfortably
  • The system demands unceasing growth and resource extraction for its own survival, in turn putting the survival of humanity and ecosystems in peril
  • The growth that arises from capital accumulation makes a select few obscenely wealthy, while most of the world lives in poverty 
  • It can be transcended

Witch Problems


When a family member keeps putting your jar away you’re using to collect storm water
‘Why do you have to leave it out here over night?’
It’s a full moon MOTHER I need to make my MAGIC WATER

Saturday’s flooding rains in New Orleans caused scattered property damage across the city, with flooded vehicles likely being one of the biggest pain points.

If a car takes on water, here’s what State Farm Insurance suggests doing (besides calling your insurance agent ASAP).

– Don’t try to start your car — this will cause more damage if there is water in the engine.

– Start drying out your vehicle as quickly as possible, and contact a towing service to get it back to higher ground. Oil, transmission fluid and lube may need draining before a tow.

– Look under the hood. This is where you’ll find clues as to how extensive the flood damage may be.

– Check the oil dipstick. Look for water droplets, which likely indicate that there is water in your engine. If that’s the case, the cylinders, which are supposed to compress air instead of water, will be broken. Remove water-damaged cylinders and check for corroded spots.

– Change the oil and transmission fluid. You’ll want to do this again after the car is drivable and you’ve gone several hundred miles.

– Clean the interior.

If floodwaters were more than a few feet deep, water probably made it to the inside of your car. Here’s what to do next:

– Remove all moisture. Use a wet/dry vacuum to collect standing water, and cloth towels to absorb water that has soaked into the seats and carpet. Remove seats and seat cushions if possible, and use fans and dehumidifiers to accelerate the drying process.

– Check electrical components. Extensive flood damage could require a trip to the mechanic to get it replaced.

– Check the fuel tank and line. Use a store-bought siphon pump to remove some fuel. If you note any water (which would naturally separate from the fuel), you’ll want to empty the tank completely.

Once you know the extent of your car’s flood damage, you’ll need to weigh repair costs against the cost of replacing your car.

Please keep New Orleans in your thoughts , the water was almost waist deep in some areas .










I will always remember Christopher Lee as that horrifying moment in the LOTR commentaries where Peter Jackson says he started to direct him on how to act like he’d been stabbed and Christopher Lee goes “no no peter dear, when someone is stabbed like this, THIS is how they look, they don’t make a sound, air just leaves them all at once” and peter jackson remembers in that moment that lee was in the secret service and just slowly backs away.

Y’all… Christopher Lee was literally James Bond. He and Ian Fleming were cousins, he was one of the real life sources of inspiration for James Bond, and was Fleming’s first choice to play Bond in the movies.

Saying that he was in the secret service doesn’t do it justice. His unit was informally referred to as “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare” and his service records are still sealed.

When an interviewer asked him about his service, he asked “Can you keep a secret?” the interviewer of course said yes, so he leaned in, lowered his voice, and said “So can I.”

He also performed for a metal album in his 80′s.

Christopher Lee was one of the most awesome humans ever to walk the Earth.

@dovewithscales wasn’t Christopher Lee also like one of the only LotR cast members who met Tolkien? At least I think there was something about him and Tolkien that I can’t remember exactly…

That is correct.

Mr lee was one of the people that made me want to get into acting.

Ian McKellan said the same thing. He said he was nervous filming LotR to meet Lee because he was his idol.

I miss him

I think there was more than one metal album.

And something about parachutes in WWII.

And playing Dracula onscreen more than any other actor. And the fact that the guy legit traced his ancestry straight back to Charlemagne.

Sir Christopher Lee was a fucking boss.
