What If...Everyone wants to believe that they are special. Having magical powers, being long lost royalty, the Chosen Hero to save the day/world, being from another world, or being something more than human. There are endless possibilities if one has enough imagination. The truth of the matter is, everyone wants to believe that they have irreplaceable worth, and they do. It's just that they can't see it. See that whether they are just human or something completely Other, every person is different, and every one of them has worth.What If...21 hours ago in Philosophical More Like This
This said, There are those of us who simply wish to be like everyone else. To be normal. To be human. To be accepted. Most people forget in their fantasies that being different can be scary. People might try to hurt them because they are afraid of anyone different from them. Of anyone or anything they don't understand. People can be cruel, and merciless. Death, torture, endless taunting, mocking, bullying, and being ostracized are just a few of the possible things that
Why Korra and Asami (Korrasami) is Canon.This week, audiences watched the end of an era with two great television shows coming to a close. The Colbert Report ended its 9 year run and on top of that, The Nickelodeon series “Legend of Korra” came to an end with its 2 part finale. It was a great run for both shows, but alas, they are gone. However, whereas Stephen Colbert ended his show on fun easy going last hurrah, “Legend of Korra” ended on a much more intense note that has fans very split.Why Korra and Asami (Korrasami) is Canon.19 hours ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Now before we discuss this, bare this in mind. Is “Legend of Korra” better than “Avatar: The Last Airbender”? No. Not at all. However this is largely due to how Nickelodeon handled the show. They originally only wanted a short miniseries to continue the Avatar saga. Then, it became a critical hit. So they green lit another season forcing the creators to undo and redo character and story elements they did in the first season. Thus we got season two which, though had a lot of really stellar mom

Welcome back to Nostalgiaviews, where I review the stuff that made my childhood and then I tear it apart as an adult because people get a kick out of that apparently.
Now, here’s a movie I know nothing about but I use to watch it as a kid.
I wish I could give more information than that but honestly, this movie is so obscure that even IMDB and Wikipedia are no help.
The only information I could find about this television movie was it was directed by the late Toby Bluth, who also directed another Christmas movie by MGM, 1997’s animated “Babes in Toyland,” a more I personally tore into back in 2012. So imagine the shock to find out not only was this movie made by the same guy, but that the guy also died last year from a stroke. Now I feel bad, I feel like I just kicked a dead horse.
Not like it’s stopped me before from mocking people who were already long dead or still alive, amiright?
Anyway, as there wasn’t much information I could find about t
Star Wars Fan Questionnaire1. Would you prefer to be a Jedi Knight or a Sith Lord? – I would prefer to be a Sith Lord, because their views of the Force are more active than the Jedi.

2. What are your Favorite Worlds? – I love Coruscant for its bustling atmosphere, its architecture, all of the nice places one can go to, and its similarity to real-life cities as New York, Chicago, London, Tokyo, and Beijing. It is also for that reason that I would love to visit it, but not live in it. I prefer Naboo for its peaceful and serene atmosphere, as well as its beautiful landscapes, nice people, emphasis on education, and great architecture.
3. What type of Lightsaber, Lightsaber color, and Fighting style would you have? – I would have a standard hilt with a dual-phase function. Since I am a Sith Lord, my lightsaber would have a red blade. My primary form would be Form V: Shien/Djem So. I would &

Faded memoriesHow long has it been since she saw him? She thought to herself. It felt like it's been years since she last saw him on the day just before her death. Which tragically, she wished was never her last day with him. She counted the years on her finger tips as she walked down the path that lead towards her once loved one's house. Remembering where to go up to this very day. As a sigh escaped her lips, a warm, gentle smile formed upon her face as she pulled her gaze away from her hands and looking up, barely seeing the faint overlay of the house Silvertail lived in.Faded memories5 hours ago in Emotional More Like This

The enlisted men had acquired some very fine Cannabis from the gentle natives on what we call Cuttyhunk Island and therefore, the mission was taking a bit longer than expected. In fact, this particular mission is taking quite a bit longer than usual so many officers are objectively doubtful about the outcome, they drag their heels upon a metaphorical sidewalk.
We officers can only report what we are told by the enlisted men, for we have no firsthand experience with inhaled intoxicants. We officers, the real masters of the sea, drink hard liquor. We get angry, we get violent and then we get sick - but we have our own quarters so nobody else ever sees us sick.
Anyway, we feed the men soft liquor - as much as we can afford

Title- Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
Platform- Nintendo Wii
Release Date- November 1, 2011
Developer- 1st Playable Productions
Publisher- Red Wagon Productions
Merry Christmas once again my readers. Since I own it, I decided to finally take a look at the other Rankin/Bass Special video game for the Wii produced by Red Wagon. This time however, I decided not to do a video play for it.
Anyway, a year after 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' was made for the Wii, next came 'Santa Claus is Comin' to Town' once again based on the Rankin/Bass stop motion special. This time however, it is done by a different developer so maybe it will be better...
Unlike Rudolph, this game actually follows the special pretty much note for note. There are a few minor changes to make the game flow a bit better but still it follows the movie pretty closely. Never seen it? It's basically supposed to be the origin of Santa Claus.

The crust is flourless peanut butter cookies, with an adjusted level of sugar. For that, you will need:1 cup peanut butter3/4 cup sugar (if you want to make cookies, use 1 cup sugar; although, 3/4 cup works just as well)1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 large egg, lightly beatenDirectionsreheat oven to 350 degrees F.In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg until well combined. Spread across the bottom of a pie plate (for reference, mine is 9" and I have leftover cookie batter), and use a fork to poke holes across the bottom.Bake for 10 minutes; the edges should be golden brown.
Set aside the crust so it will cool for a little while, and make the filling.
The filling is blanc mange pudding, with chocolate. To fill the pie, double the following recipe:3 tablespoons cornstarch1/2 cup granulated sugar1/8 teaspoon salt2 cups milk1 teaspoon vanilla2 ounces unsweetened chocolateDirections:Mix t

My year 2014.
Okay, I will do it like I learned in school. Put the fewer points first, put the more points to the end of a text.
So, I will start out with the few good things that happened this year.
In March, I finally became 16 years old, and since then am finally not considered a child anymore. I can go whereever I want now, and surprisingly my father lost some of his overprotective self (I love him, no matter what, he's just very ... stressy sometimes).
Then, later in April, I was finally able to move to a new stable, leaving all terror and heartless icelandic sport behind, and motivating a good friend of me to move, too, freeing herself from bad influence in the old stable.
August. I moved to my new school. Awesome teacher, awesome classmates. 'Nough said.
Then back in September, I joined my first very small competition with Tjaldur, and hey, we got a 3rd and a 4th place

Over hollow bones,
Decorated with the blackest
Of ink feathers
That are just plentiful enough
To allow him to soar.
With xylophone ribs
And wind stained cheeks
Is too harsh to be called
His face is gaunt
And his eyes are too pale
To be blue
As his lips steal the hue.
His voice is raspy
And catches on sharp letters,
Such a voice does not come naturally.
I wonder, upon occasion,
Just how loud he must have shouted,
Just how long he must have screamed,
For those delicate folds of flesh
Not to have healed yet.
He is the raven man,
And I watch him fly
Quietly and subtly
Against the backdrop
Of a darkened sky.
And he lights his cigarette
With a motion that shows practice,
And stares at the world
Hundreds of metres
Below his dangling feet.
Even birds mourn."
