Nobody made a movie about this because it was just too weird: prokopetz Everybody talks about Anastasia, which is a shame, because it's a far less interesting example of Russian fake heir drama than that whole business with the False Dmitries Okay, so Ivan the Terrible's youngest son, Dmitry, was assassinated in 1591 at the age of 8. Fast-forward nine years, and there's a guy going about Eastern Europe claiming that he is Dmitry, having secretly escaped the assassination attempt and lived in hiding under a false identity ever since. This sort of business isn't too unusual, but this guy actually pulls it off, managing to gain the Russian throne and rule for nearly eleven months before being dragged from the palace and publicly executed in early 1606. He'd subsequently go down in history as False Dmitry I Here's where it gets interesting. In mid 1607, a second impostor declares himself. Bizarrely, this one doesn't dispute the first impostor's legitimacy; instead, he claims to be the same guy, having miraculously survived his apparent execution the year before. He somehow wins the political support of False Dmitry I's widow, and with her vouching for his identity, he gains the allegiance of the Cossacks, rallies an army over 100 000 strong, and tries to take back" the throne. Though his march on Moscow ultimately failed, he successfully conquered most of Southeastern Russia, which he would rule until his untimely death in December of 1610, when he was beheaded in a drunken altercation with a Tartar prince. The history books know him as False Dmitry II Now jump ahead three months to March of 1611, when a third fucking impostor pops up. Dude apparently just magically appeared from behind a waterfall in goddamn Ivangorod and declared himself Tsar. Following the lead of False Dmitry I1, he doesn't dispute either of the two previous impostors, instead claiming some sort of spiritual reincarnation and/or magical resurrection - it's not entirely clear which - to establish himself as the same guy. He must have talked a good game, because he managed to win the support of the same fucking Cossacks who supported False Dmitry Il's claim. Unfortunately, he was a far less able commander, being forced to flee his stronghold only a year later, whereupon he was spirited away to Moscow and secretly executed. Though he never managed to actually rule anything, historians decided to stick to the theme and dubbed him False Dmitry Il At this point the historical record becomes confused, with some sources asserting there was a fourth False Dmitry, though others insist that the third False Dmitry was simply counted twice due to poor record-keeping. Still, whether we're talking about three False Dmitries or four, imagine the whole mess from the Tsar's perspective. Dude just wouldn't stay dead! gryphye ohh vou missed one of my favorite bits False Dmitry I not only was executed, it was KNOWN he was fake. Powers that be used him until he was trouble, and THEN executed him Then quartered hinm Then cremated what was left. Stuffed the ashes in a can And shot him out of a cannon back towards Poland, where he actually came from. He pissed off a few people, yeah prokopetz It was a very miraculous survival Source:prokopetz 8,898 notes Nobody made a movie about this because it was just too weird

Youre greeted by David Bowie. Not an imitation, not a resurrection, he just went back to his spaceship.: nitewrighter You know that whole trope where like, the protagonists get teleported up into the aliens' spaceship or base or whatever and the alien appears to them only it doesn't appear as it really looks like but rather, since it doesn't want to scare the protagonists, it takes the form of something we find familiar and pleasing and is like, "T look like your dad or whatever-is this form okay? Like I think about that trope a lot and I think like, what if the alien couldn't pick out a form via telepathy and only had earth media to try and decide what form would scare its human guests least and be accepted almost immediately and honestly the more I think about it the more options for what form that might be are just really fun to me T have chosen the form of your earth playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda-do not be afraid.I come in peace. Greetings. I am Glofnorbo of the cloud you call the Pegasus Nebula.' I have scanned your earth media from afar and empirically decided that you would find the form of the one known as Dwayne The Rock Johnson most pleasing. I have come to confer with your leaders." "Do not be panic. I come in peace. I have assumed the form of your insectoid demigoddess Hatsune Miku' so that we may communicate peacefully without my true form horrifying you." nineprotons It was decided that I would assume the form of your Mister Rogers in order to best welcome your world to the galactic neighborhood without frightening your kind." gentlemanbones ...So did your colleague take on the form of Jack Black for that reason too? "No, that is the actual Jack Black. We do not know how to make him leave. Source nitewrighter 104,578 notes Youre greeted by David Bowie.

BallerAlert's Today in Hip-Hop: Common Released "I Used to Love H.E.R."-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 23 years ago today, Chicago rapper Common released one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time, "I Used to Love H.E.R." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Released on his 1994 album 'Resurrection,’ "I Used to Love H.E.R." is one of Common's most influential tracks to date. Its authentic hip-hop feel with a heavy jazz influence allows this track to stand the test of time no matter how old it gets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The song also established Common as a new, modern day conscious rapper. The "H.E.R." he is referring to is hip-hop. The acronym means "Hip-Hop in its Essence is Real.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The song tells the story of how hip-hop evolved from the 1980s to the 1990s. Common specifically speaks on the fall of Afrocentric rap and the rise of West Coast hip hop, ultimately claiming that hip-hop or this woman have become less authentic as hip-hop continues to become mainstream. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ To this day, the song remains a classic and has inspired many artists we know today. Fellow Chicago native, KanyeWest, samples the first two lines of the opening verse in his song, "Homecoming.”: #BallerAlert's Today in Hip-Hop: Common Released "I Used to Love H.E.R." @balleralert resurrection BallerAlert's Today in Hip-Hop: Common Released "I Used to Love H.E.R."-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 23 years ago today, Chicago rapper Common released one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time, "I Used to Love H.E.R." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Released on his 1994 album 'Resurrection,’ "I Used to Love H.E.R." is one of Common's most influential tracks to date.

It is a pity that many people today do favours of good deeds only to gain fame, fortune and praise from fellow human beings, (known in Arabic as Riya). Performing righteous deeds to show off or to be seen by fellow human beings in order to be praised by them destroys all the benefits that lie in such deeds. - The primary cause of Riya is a weak level of eeman (faith). When people’s faith is weak, they prefer the admiration and acceptance of people instead of the pleasure of Allah. They desire to be like others who they envy, and to be envied by others similarly. This causes them to ignore the blessings and rewards of the hereafter, and desire for fame and prestige in this world; thus fall into riya. Allah will humiliate all such people on the Day of Resurrection. - Jundub narrated that The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him). (Bukhari, 6499) - In the Quran, Allah says (translation of meaning): “Would one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grapevines underneath which rivers flow in which he has from every fruit? But he is afflicted with old age and has weak offspring, and it is hit by a whirlwind containing fire and is burned. Thus does Allah make clear to you [His] verses that you might give thought.” (Quran, 2:266) - Here Allah has compared the good deeds of those who practice riya to a beautiful, lush garden that is burnt by a fire, while the owner stands by, incapable of stopping it. This is what happens to good deeds that are wasted. How can Allah, the Most Wise, accept deeds if they are not performed for His sake? How can Allah, the Most Just, bestow the same amount of blessings on the person who performs action solely for His sake and the one who intends only to show off and acquire the praise of fellow human beings? - May Allah save us all from the dangerous, poisonous habit of doing righteous deeds with the intention of seeking praise and fame.
