A hypnotizing video of Korean men making Korean noodles. When the camera pans up at 7:05, it’s revelatory.

Here is a video of a man:

  • who owns a US restaurant
  • dancing with noodles (dancing with noodles!) to a Korean song
  • on a Chinese variety show

The world is a small and strange place. Also, it doesn’t matter where you are, people will put literally anything on television.

*another Swedish song that reminds me of the True Detective theme

Mar 14, 2014
0 notes

WOW, haven’t been on Tumblr for quite a while. But I started watching True Detective* the other day, and the theme song really reminds me of this instrumental by Bjorn Olsson. It’s from his 2006 album, which was officially unnamed but had an enormous picture of a blue lobster on the cover, so it was called The Lobster.

Back in the days when I had a college radio show, I used to loop this track under my intro. It’s always had a special place on my paraphilic love map.

It is a controversial topic and one that may make for uncomfortable viewing.

BBC drama Call The Midwife is to tell the story of a pair of disabled lovers forced apart and ridiculed after the woman becomes pregnant.

Disability charities yesterday welcomed the plotline, saying it highlights how far society has come since the judgmental 1950s in which the programme is set.

The episode, which is to be aired on Sunday night, will feature the characters of Sally Harper, who has Down’s syndrome, and Jacob Milligan, who has cerebral palsy.

The pair live in an institution, having been sent there by their parents – as was common at  the time.

But after they fall in love and Sally becomes pregnant, the  couple are separated and Sally faces ridicule from her mother and father.

The episode deals with the prejudice and stigma she would have experienced.

Call The Midwife is shown on BBC One before the nine o’clock watershed, and in the past storylines featuring abortion, incest and infidelity have shocked viewers. But yesterday campaigners welcomed the inclusion of disability and love as a theme.

The character of Sally is played by Sarah Gordy, and Jacob by Colin Young. Both actors have the disability that they portray on screen.

Both actors have the disability that they portray on screen.

I’m hesitant to click through because I don’t expect the Daily Mail to not say something ableist, but I’m interested to see how this episode turns out! I liked Jacob in his previous appearance.

Man, if there’s one show I can count on to get this kind of thing right (but still in a safely middlebrow way, make no mistake), it’s Call the Midwife. 

Season 3 premieres in the US on 3/30; you can watch Seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix.

Taking a week before I start my new job to get back into botanical illustration. I work at the Phipps COnservatory and their orchid and bonsai show started on the 17th. I was able to collect a few specimens that fell off while preparing for the show. 

Orchids are the best plants.

Russian Police Choir performs &#039;Get Lucky&#039; at Opening Ceremony

Honestly, this choral arrangement was pretty disappointing! You have 50-odd guys up there— that is a lot of power, potentially!— and 75% of them aren’t even singing most of the time.

Dear Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, please go watch Pitch Perfect and then come back and try again.

Is this real? I want it to be real. But it seems too good to be real. I mean, that COVER. That PARAGRAPH.

Yes! She is a big favourite on http://basic.fm


They do not mention here all the *~*drama*~* about Daphne Oram&#8217;s tenure at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, which she helped found, but then had to leave because the BBC wanted to make the Doctor Who theme and she wanted to make musique concrete. You can read all about it in this Guardian article from 2008

patrondebris:

My annoying romance novel trope of the day is when the hero and/or heroine decide to do things because they decide it’s “what’s best” for the other person—usually involving going away and never seeing the other person again—even after they’ve had a conversation about how that’s not what either of them wants.

They do this in kdramas and it drives me nuts!!!!! I’ve seen it being kind of subverted in a few more recent shows, though, like one character will try to disappear from the other’s life and the other person will be like, “where are you going, silly?" Or one of the characters will need to leave for a while but is totally clear about why, like "Listen, I need to travel for a while and get rid of/get right with my ghost-seeing abilities so I don’t feel unequal in our relationship.” I like that a lot better.
