Guarded By The Fell.
The small river village, protected by the Fells of Howgill since days of old…
This was shot from the motte of Castlehaw, the site of an ancient Norman motte-and-bailey castle, dating from around the 10thC. These days, it’s just a large hump protruding 30ft or so and surrounded by a ditch, but it does offer excellent views of the village of Sedbergh below as well as the little farmhouse shaded underneath the protective mound of Winder Fell. =)
And yes, the greens really were that green.
So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
Keeping up with the pace of internet meme development might just be a hobby unto itself. Last week we saw the rise of Japanese schoolgirls using photography to unleash Dragon Ball Z Makankosappo and Kamehameha energy attacks on each other. Then came the awesomeness that is Vadering.
Now, just days later, another creative photography meme has taken the Internets by storm. This time it’s Japanese teens taking photos in which they appear to be flying on broomsticks to play Quidditch, the fast and furious fictional sport from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter universe.
According to Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft:
“Japanese schoolboys, it seems, are now uploading photos of imaginary Quidditch games. Quidditch, of course, is the broomstick-based team sport from the Harry Potter books. Why “imaginary”? There already are Muggle versions of Quidditch, that’s why.
In Japan, students are responsible for cleaning their classrooms and also the school itself (for baseball players, this would also mean the field and the clubhouse). Thus, students have easy access to brooms, making phony games of Quidditch possible.”
The knowledge that these boys are supposed to be doing school chores when they’re staging these playful photos somehow makes them even more awesome.
Now that we seem to be in the midst of a hot creative streak, does anyone care to guess what the next photo meme might be?
Hey, bro, cool story.
DFTBA sells a bunch of shirts, and we market to ugly people and nerdy people and small people and big people and pretty people and we’re doing okay and plus we don’t need physical stores with LITERALLY THE WORST MUSIC EVER CREATED BY HUMANS PLAYING AT EAR-BLEEDING VOLUME SO THAT ALL OF YOUR PURPORTEDLY COOL AND BEAUTIFUL EMPLOYEES ARE MADE DEAF BY THEIR WORKING CONDITIONS.
So that’s another way of doing it.
Also I hate your jeans.
Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is.
My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This…
Perfection. And fitting as graduation draws ever nearer.
Merlin Characteres in Hogwarts Houses
Hufflepuffs are trustworthy and loyal.
Ravenclaws are the cleverest, individual and beautiful people.
Gryffindor is where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve and chivalry.
Slytherins are protective, they’re sleek, powerful, and frequently misunderstood.
————- Bônus ———————
Slytherins and Gryffindors represent two sides of the same coin. So perhaps they’re more similar than they’re like to think.

at first i thought morgana and merlin should be switched, but i like this. also i hardly ever see hp parallels classify ‘good’ characters as slytherin but they indeed exist are under-recognized.
Welcome Mensage FROM POTTERMORE (just for us, the serpents):
“Merlin was a Slytherin. Yes, Merlin himself, the most famous wizard in history! He learned all he knew in this very house!”
