This Anna Kendrick Little Mermaid SNL sketch is impossible to find (NBC ran into some legal issues with Disney)… watch while you can!
"Why would I need your hair? Mine is GORGEOUS! I mean it’s white, slicked straight up, & buzzed on the sides."
Hahahahhaa! Love it!!!
She sang Iggy Azealia. I DIE
that Iggy verse lmao
“legal issues with Disney” is not true at all. Disney DGAF. Music licensing is dumb and it’s cheaper to just get it for just TV instead of both TV and online, and NBC cheaps out rather than paying for online licensing. ALL music related sketches are cut from every online version of SNL.
By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
Does anyone else remember the part of Norse mythology where anyone who is worthy of wielding Mjölnir gets the power of Thor? Because I sure don’t.
Q:Who's idea was naming Commander instead EDH ?
Elder Dragon Highlander made sense when your commander had to be an elder dragon but the format had outstripped the relevance of the name.
Also, the official Wizards name for Highlander is Singleton because the name Highlander is a dumb pop culture reference joke that fewer and fewer people actually understand.
THIS IS FUCKING FANTASTIC.
All of this is 100% accurate according to Marvel’s mainstream Earth-616 continuity:
- Loki turned Thor into a frog
- As a frog, Thor met another guy who had been turned into a frog by a gypsy curse
- That frog picked up a sliver that had chipped off of Mjolnir
- The sliver became a smaller version of Mjolnir called Frogjolnir
- The frog received a fraction of Thor’s power
- The frog now uses the name Throg
All of which is to say:
This guy, Throg, is currently an actual character in mainstream Marvel comics canon. Seriously.
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
the one that will always stay with me is “Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath,” i feel like that was the first time i really understood what you could do with words.
"He had found a Nutri-Matic machine which had provided him with a plastic cup filled with a liquid that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea."
Q:Can I get a maybe on there being at least one card that appears in both Alpha and Khans of Tarkir?
sadly the truth
I think that this attitude, that the entire purpose of a relationship is to achieve marriage, is a perfect summary of what’s wrong with how we treat relationships.
Relationships that don’t result in marriage are not failures or worth less than those which do.
People do not exist solely to be your potential spouse.
"work out perfectly and u get married and ur happy" also does not seem like a universal truth about marriages. And even the happiest lifelong marriages end in heartache when the first spouse dies. The only way to avoid heartache completely is for you and your SO to die simultaneously, which doesn’t exactly seem like a great outcome either.
Q:Is it possible to see death character in supplementary products? Like Urza or Venser?
It’s hard to get across the message of “this person is dead” if they look all healthy and breathing in their card art. But it’s something we’d consider if we could make it clear to players that the appearance of the card didn’t represent their current state in the story.
You could make Urza’s skull an artifact or something. I’m not sure if that’s a good idea or not, but you could do it.
Q:Which guild and which Alara shard have the most overlap? Conversely, which guild would feel right at home on a particular shard? Would Gruul be great in Jund? Would Dimir do well on Grixis? is there one particular combo that you think is the most compatible?
I mean, every shard naturally has a wider and more varied set of elements than any guild (which only makes sense). Interestingly, it feels like all of the allied-color guilds fit better with their associated shards than the enemy-color guilds. I can squint and see Azorius and Selesnya both being compatible with the values of Bant, but Simic feels really weird there. Rakdos and Dimir can find aspects of Grixis to like, but Izzet goes a totally different direction. Same with Rakdos and Gruul on Jund, with Golgari as the weirder fit.
What do you all think?
The middle colors of shards are kind of their core identity. Enemy-color guilds lack that middle color, and therefore should feel somewhat out of place.
