Friends, Future, and Love: An Open Letter from the Cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy To our fans and friends: We fully support James Gunn. We were all shocked by his abrupt firing last week and have intentionally waited these ten days to respond in order to think, pray, listen and discuss. In that time, we've been encouraged by the outpouring of support from fans and members of the media who wish to see James reinstated as director of Volume 3 as well as discouraged by those so easily duped into believing the many outlandish conspiracy theories surrounding him Being in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies has been a great honor in each of our lives. We cannot let this moment pass without expressing our love, support, and gratitude for James. We are not here to defend his jokes of many years ago but rather to share our experience having spent many years together on set making Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2. The character he has shown in the wake of his firing is consistent with the man he was every day on set, and his apology, now and from years ago when first addressing these remarks, we believe is from the heart, a heart we all know, trust, and love. In casting each of us to help him tell the story of misfit:s who find redemption, he changed our lives forever. We believe the theme of redemption has never been more relevant than novw. Each of us looks forward to working with our friend James again in the future. His story isn't over not by a long shot. There is little due process in the court of public opinion. James is likely not the last good person to be put on trial. Given the growing political divide in this country, it's safe to say instances like this will continue, although we hope Americans from acros:s the political spectrum can ease up on the character assassinations and stop weaponizing mob mentality It is our hope that what has transpired can serve as an example for all of us to realize the enormous responsibility we have to ourselves and to each other regarding the use of our written words when we etch them in digital stone; that we as a society may learn from this experience and in the future will think twice before we decide what we want to express; and in so learning perhaps can harness this capability to help and heal instead of hurting each other. Thank you for taking the time to read our words.

Club, Dancing, and Girls: xtremecaffeine: mizunocaitlin: antiandrogen: momoeyamaguchi: please watch this source This is so intense like… if you miss your mark you get beheaded You’re doing them a disservice by not including who they are! These girls are high school students. They are the Tomioka High School Dance Club from Tomioka High School in Osaka. They went viral in Japan when they got runner up in the “All-Japan High School Super Cup Dance-Off” held as part of Yokohama’s summer of dance this summer (August 2017). You’ll know Yokohama’s summers of dance from the regular mass Pikachu dances you see on social media each summer.  They’ve blown up since then. The promotional video they made at the school has more than 30 million views. They’ve been on tons of TV shows, including performances with Oginome Yoko, the original singer of the song (Dancing Hero (Eat You Up)) that they remixed for their dance.  This dance routine was riffing off the comedian Hirano Nora and actually includes some of her comedy catch phrases in the remix. (They even got her to join them eventually!) For the uninitiated, one of the most accessible forms of comedy in modern Japanese pop culture are comedians like this who create outlandish SNL type characters and then appear on one or more shows regularly as that character. Hirano Nora’s gimmick is that she’s a woman from the height of Japan’s “bubble economy” era in the 80′s when there were tons of newly wealthy yuppies. This is why the remix is called “Bubbly Dance”. (Compare her to similar comedy character Blouson Chiemi whose gimmick is that she’s a modern, man eating career woman.) These girls deserve all the fame they’re getting. You can read about them in the Asahi Shinbun and also check out this piece on Akane, their 25 year old coach via Japan Forward.  !!!

Philadelphia 76ers, Drugs, and Meek Mill: Sixers Co-Owner Talks Supporting Meek Mill, Says The Judge ls "A Danger To Sodety'@balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Sixers Co-Owner Talks Supporting Meek Mill, Says The Judge Is “A Danger To Society” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the weeks since MeekMill was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating probation, the rapper has received support from civil rights leaders, celebrities and high-level executives, including Philadelphia 76ers co-owner MichaelRubin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Upon learning of the Philadelphia native’s probation violation hearing, Rubin believed Meek would receive light punishment. But, when the judge prohibited Meek from leaving the city, Rubin grew concerned about the case, Bleacher Report states. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He was at too many games because he wasn’t allowed to leave the city,” Rubin said. “It didn’t make any sense to me. His job is to perform, and the judge wasn’t letting him perform. He was giving up millions of dollars.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, as he kept an eye on the case, he realized that everything that he heard about the judge had been true. From the harsh sentence for violating probation, which stems from decade-old drugs and gun charges to the outlandish demands of changes in Meek’s music career, “Everything I’d heard about this judge was accurate,” Rubin, who attended the hearing, said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Had I not seen it in person, I probably would not have gotten to this point of feeling like I have to stand up for him because he’s being treated so unfairly, and he can’t do this on his own,” Rubin continued. “Meek is a diehard Sixers fan-they generally play his music for the intro. He’s a staple-someone the team .....to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

Arguing, Energy, and Internet: Scientists Now Believe the Universe Itself May Be Conscious JUNE 28, 2017 AT 7:56 PM The Anti-Media/ Jake Anderson You don’t have to look far to find outlandish theories on the nature of the cosmos and human consciousness. These days, notions once relegated to sciencefiction are finding their way into esoteric academic journals, and from there, into mainstream discourse. One example of this is the Simulation Argument ( HolographicUniverse), recently championed by ElonMusk; another is ‘ timecrystals,’ a tantalizing non-linear phase of matter. The newest symphony of mind jazz being broadcast across the Internet posits new ideas about the embattled theory of “panpsychism,” or the belief that mind is a fundamental property of the physical universe and is imbued into all states of matter. A new paper, published by physicist Gregory Matloff, has brought the idea back into scientific discussions, promising experimental tests that could “validate or falsify” the concept of a ubiquitous “proto-consciousness field.” Matloff also pushes the controversial idea of volitional stars, suggesting there is actually evidence that stars control their own galactic paths. As absurd as the theory sounds, it has several prominent adherents, including British theoretical physicist Sir Roger Penrose, who introduced panpsychism three decades ago. Penrose believed consciousness arises from the properties of quantumentanglement. He and anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff authored the Orchestrated Objective Reduction (Orch-OR) hypothesis, which asserts, among other things, that consciousness results from quantum vibrations inside microtubules. In 2006, German physicist Bernard Haisch took the idea further and proposed that consciousness arises within a “quantum vacuum” any time there is a significantly advanced system through which energy flows. Neuroscientist Christof Koch, another proponent of panpsychism, approaches it from a different angle, using integrated information theory to argue that consciousness is not unique to biological organisms. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾

Dating, Target, and Tumblr: hmm on Chapter 1 Tue 17 May 2016 02:08AM CDT So was this written before you knew Clint had a wife and kids or whatever in Ultron? Or did you just really want slash and decided to recon the characters to make him gay with Coulson? Very odd pairing by the way. Like, most slash is pretty outlandish, but with at least some support from canon to make it work, but there's literally nothing to support this one. The characters aren't even on screen together really. Reply ThreadSpam Delete copperbadge on Chapter 1 Tue 17 May 2016 07:20A CDT you're new here, aren't you. Reply ThreadEdit Delete copperbadge: stele3: copperbadge: copperbadge: This happened this morning and I have been thinking about it and laughing to myself all day.  Reblogging partly for the morning crowd but mostly because I’m seeing a lot of comments/tags about “They read a whole C/C fic just to say this?” and I need you guys to understand: this wasn’t a Clint/Coulson fic.  I don’t think they’re even shown interacting at any point in the story. This was a story about other people. There’s just an offhanded reference to Clint and Coulson dating in one scene in a 23,000-word fic. And this is the comment I received.  Oh, fandom. Did they ever reply, Sam? No, and I doubt they will – there’s no associated account, and no real reason for them to check back since they clearly feel their job is to drop pearls of “wisdom” and drift onwards. I’ll update you guys if I hear back, though. At this rate they may see it on tumblr.
