PORTHOS WEEK. Day six - The Improviser (October 18th)

angyckles:

DESCRIPTION: Your favourite fight scene or duel. Not so keen on violence? How about your favourite CSI Porthos moment where detective skills and creative thinking came in handy.

Actually, I love this man and this character in every way and every fight, but the one I enjoyed the most is the one during the contest to choose the Musketeer who will fight against a Red Guard in the challenge between both regiments (1x08 “The Challenge”). He acts so sassy in that fight and I loved it when Aramis said “The wonder of it all is he’s not even trying”, because he really wasn’t. Furthermore, the sassy giggle when he finishes the fight is great.

Parked

i-charge-laughing:

Yesterday, I watched a movie. It was extraordinarily sad, and I loved every minute of it. Parked follows Fred, a middle-aged man living out of his car: quite literally parked—stopped, no forward motion. Next to him in his car park is Cathal. Cathal is a dead-beat drug addict with a unique perspective on the world’s terrible beauty, which produces an uncanny wisdom. The dialogue is simple yet thought-provoking. One bit in particular caught my attention.

Cathal: Have you ever seen a leaf fall off a tree?
Fred: What?
Cathal: Have you ever seen the actual moment when that leaf breaks from its branch?
Fred: No, I can’t say that I have.
Cathal: It’s a… It’s a beautiful thing.

When I was little, I started a habitual game that continues today. I’d always try to catch the exact moment the number changed on a digital clock. That instant the lines switched.

The instant the water boils. The first break of soil as new grass grows. The moment your best friend’s face explodes into a smile. Shooting stars, babies born, sunsets and rises, the first snowflake.

Moments. Moments that make up life and death. Moments easily lost. Life easily lost.

I watched for that number to change because even though I knew it was coming in exactly sixty seconds, it always surprised me.

These moments assure us that something—Life—is happening. Or is it death? Are we living to death or dying to live?

When I’m parked, I feel that I’m living to death. I miss those moments. I’m simply existing for the sake of existing.
Like Icarus of myth, I think I’d like to die to live.

Never regret thy fall,

O Icarus of the fearless flight

For the greatest tragedy of them all

Is never to feel the burning light.

-Oscar Wilde

Each of those moments is a sign of ending: moving forward. Something is past that we cannot get back; it has died. But as an observer of that moment, that instant in time, I never feel more alive.

I’ve never seen a leaf fall from a tree, but I’m certainly going to look for it.

**Trigger warning**

This, literally, is dead on exactly how I feel, and probably a lot of you guys too.

if you ever wonder why I’m surprised when you call me your friend or when you say you want to hang out or when you say you miss me

It’s sad some people think like this I want to give them a hug

taylorswift we need a recipe for these please! 🍪🍪🍪

MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this. The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day.Pow. Done.
OR
If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe.
http://joythebaker.com/2009/06/giant-vanilla-sugar-cookies/
***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE***
I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons <—-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE.
I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control. If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you.
Why?
Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake.
Bye.

did taylor swift really just show up out of the blue on tumblr only to drop some betty crocker shit on us what the fuck

I’m reblogging this solely bc Taylor Fucking Swift just wrote a whole thing about cookies and ended it with a reference to her song.
I have so much respect for her right now.


I was never a huge fan of Taylor but this just made it shoot through the roof…

is this the rise of the brave tangled frozen dragons

no actually it’s even better than that
this is a still from a 1990 television special entitled, “cartoon all-stars to the rescue,” which, literally, was absolutely nothing but half an hour of beloved children’s cartoon characters attempting to get that kid in the blue to stop smoking pot.
it opens with a brief clip of george h.w. bush and barbara bush sitting in the oval office, petting their dog. the president of the united states looks into the camera and says, “some of your favourite cartoon characters will help you understand how drugs and alcohol can ruin your life.”
and that brief clip alone would be worth the price of admission but then we get into the actual story, which begins with a teenage boy smashing his kid sister’s piggy bank to buy pot. while alvin and the chipmunks look on in abject terror. and winnie the pooh exclaims, “oh my!” and then the kid runs off to buy pot in an alley and bugs bunny appears out of nowhere dressed as a cop, picks a joint off the pavement, and launches into an anti-drug spiel.
it’s actually really not the kind of thing that can be put into words so here’s the full half-hour video, knock yourself out

Michelangelo, of all turtles, is here to tell you not to smoke weed


imagine watching it when you are high though
