…Of course he watches Top Gear.
FTR 0.0000034 seconds is 3.4 microseconds, or slightly slower than the time it takes light to travel 1 kilometer in a vacuum. People scoff at Pietro because his power inflicts less damage than his sisters’, but he makes mincemeat of the theory of relativity and causes massive spacetime distortion on a daily basis.
I can’t even complete a Rubik’s cube period, let alone in under a minute.
I’ve noticed all of my Marvel faves have a passion for black nail polish… so I kinda had to do this… a duty, let’s say! without mentioning that those three teaming up would probably be the worst thing to ever happened in the multiverse, like the mayhem implications are potentially endless…

Us execs are all just planning our outfits separately and I'm sure it'll work out somehow! Anyhow please come if u are able to!! ;w;
Oh, okay. That’s good to know, thank you. :)
Finally have Skyrim re-installed, and am being reminded why I was so damn fond of Farkas. Big fuzzy pie-baking werewolf dude, I love you.
The purpose of this event is to film clips of local fans of Japanese fashion which will air on a segment of Kawaii International this August!
Kawaii International is TV program (affiliated with NHK broadcast group) from Tokyo that focuses on recent trends in Jfashion. Check out some of their past episodes below!
This event is open to everyone~
Join us for a day of: • Outfit filming (the theme of the day is… contrast/foils) • DIY of past projects (missed a previous DIY? Here’s your chance to un-miss it) • Discussions led by the execs (we’ve got magazines, blog posts, fashion in anime + jpop) • Possibly a photo shoot and dessert waffles outing afterwards
Elaboration on the contrast/foil theme: bring a friend with an outfit that contrasts your own! Examples: vintage vs. futuristic, bright vs. dark, soft and fluffy vs. metal and hardcore, etc. If you don’t have someone with a contrasting outfit that’s totally cool too! There is probably someone else in the group whose outfit will contrast and complement yours!
While we are guaranteeing to film all participants, we do not guarantee that everyone will be seen on the show, or make the cut. This is entirely up to the producers who will be editing the footage after it is sent to them.
We ask that any pictures or videos taken at this event do not get posted online until AFTER the episode has been aired.
Everyone must be dressed according to the guidelines.
You must provide your own transportation.
You must agree to be filmed.
Failure to follow these rules will result in you being removed from the end segment completely.
Wondering if I should attend. No idea what I’d wear, but maybe my Atom punk Lolita coord would be okay? I don’t know if I’d be able to find anyone to contrast with my before the date though :(

One of the most iconic and controversial comic strips to come out of South Africa, the satirical Madam & Eve newspaper-based strip centering on the relationship between Eve Sisulu - a black woman who works as a domestic worker, and her ‘Madam’ - Gwen Anderson, a middle-class white woman living in suburban South Africa, tackles the various changes and challenges that affect these women in early post-Apartheid South Africa.
First published in 1992, creators Stephen Francis and Rico Schacherl in The Weekly Mail (now the Mail & Guardian), at the height of the strips popularity it claimed a readership of up 4 million, and boasts several book collections as well as a TV show.
Although not everyone’s cup of tea, the Madam & Eve stood was recognized and stood out due to it’s blunt, sharp and witty nature, and for openly discussing the state of the nation from the imagined perspective of two South African women.
Madam & Eve was the first comic series I collected, and was perhaps my first collection of anything. Every year, I’d save up present money and buy the new trade of strips. I read and re-read them ravenously. Every day I’d check the site for updates.
I loved Eve so much. I wanted to surround myself with Eves. The tv show was okay, but never quite as funny or creative - there’s just some things that don’t work outside cartoons, and Edith chasing down a Mielie lady was definitely one of those things.
Sad to say I’ve missed out on a couple years worth of collections, but who know, maybe I’ll buy some more when I next go back to South Africa.
