i really want to get into yoga properly, but a search the tag and i see these insanely flexible people stood casually on their heads or supporting themselves with their noses or some crazy shit like that and i just panic.
why am i so bad at things.
I always thought the same thing, but then I started doing Bikram Yoga. It’s for people of all levels and there are only 26 basic poses that are repeated twice. What I also love is that since it’s in a heated room, everyone comes dressed in things that will make them comfortable in the head regardless of size so I never feel self conscious. It takes about 5 or 6 classes to really get the hang of things, but damn, I miss it when I have to skip a class.
reconcile to the relief consumed in sacred ground for me
there wasn’t always a place to go but there was always an urgent need to belong
all these bands and all these people
all these friends and we were equals but
what you gonna do when everybody goes on without you?
to the end to the end I’ll journey to the end
started in ‘87 ended in ‘89
got a garage or an amp we’ll play anytime
it was just the 4 of us, yeah man the core of us
too much attention unavoidably destroyed us
4 kids on tour, 3000 miles in a 4-door car not know what was goin’ on
we got a million years tourin’ out like this
hell no, no premonition could’ve seen this
to the end to the end I’ll journey to the end
Matty came from far away from New Orleans into the east bay
he said, this is a mecca. i said, this ain’t no mecca man, this place’s fucked
3 months go by, he had no home, he had no food, he’s all alone
Matty said, fool me once shame on you
didn’t fool me twice he went back to New Orleans
“working backwards from the doctor to the drugs
from the packie to the taxi to the cabbie to the club
a thousand kids will fall in love in all these clubs tonight
a thousand other kids will end up gushing blood tonight
two thousand kids won’t get all that much sleep tonight
two thousand kids they still feel pretty sweet tonight
yeah I still feel pretty sweet.”—The Hold Steady - Most People Are DJs (via fuckyeahsaija)
“The single most glaring failure to modernise the show is the demographic make-up of the cast: all the most prominent, most proactive, most important characters remain white men, with women and people of colour relegated to the edges of the show — plot devices, set dressing. There is no reason DI Lestrade could not have been played by a woman or a person of colour except that he is a white man in the books; in fact, there is no actual reason Sherlock Holmes himself could not have been played by a woman or a person of colour — both of which would have been deeply unusual for a character archetype almost completely defined by whiteness and maleness. In some ways, Sherlock even has a more backwards, more misogynistic bent to it than the original stories: in the books we are told by Watson that Holmes has little regard for female intelligence but we are never forced to bear witness to his slut-shaming or emotionally manipulating them into helping him. The Sherlock Holmes of Sherlock has little time for anyone but he has no time at all for women: he will grudgingly share information with a male character if he needs their help; this is never what he does when he needs help from women — with women he will relies on emotional manipulation tactics rather than explaining that people’s lives are at stake. Moreover, he routinely places people into a male/neutral binary which has no place for women (e.g. his assumption that Harry was a man, and his assumption that if Moriarty were not a man he must be an organisation) – and I’m left to ask myself what the justification for this kind of misogyny in a “modern retelling of the mythology” is.”—
The synopsis has just been revealed on Amazon UK for the FIRST official tie-in guide to BBC Sherlock. Currently scheduled for release on October 25 2012, you can pre-order the Hardcover book using this attached link.
The first official guide to the BBC hit series Sherlock.
Fans of Sherlock Holmes will already be familiar with The Great Game — in which all characters and events in the novels are assumed real and discussed accordingly. BBC hit Sherlock has brought Conan Doyle’s legendary detective to a whole new audience and Sherlock: The Casebook is The Great Game for the next generation. This is no ordinary guide.
Each case is brought to life on the page and re-examined through Dr Watson’s blog, Inspector Lestrade’s police reports, newspaper articles about the crimes, Sherlock’s detective notes and any other surviving clues from the cases.
Interspersed amongst the evidence are exclusive interviews with the stars of the show, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Rupert Graves, writers and co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and the production team on everything from writing the scripts and bringing the characters to life on screen to set design and production.
This is a multi-dimensional companion to Sherlock and a glorious tribute to the world-famous detective.
