Worst Movie Death Scene Ever
You spelled best wrong
WTF just happened? That man has stamina or whatever… he just rolled around there shouting for like a whole minute, holy mother of God xD
I’m pretty sure he also shot himself into his leg, but that didn’t hurt……OMG, best thing EVER.
Laughed so hard I scared my hamster.
You know what, hamsters aren’t the best at staying still. Here is Kahlo. He is either very young, or a runt, half the size of his cage mates! He also chewed everything on my desk including cords, so he’s back in his cage with his nice wooden block, haha.
He enjoys sleeping upside down in his tube, and climbing into the corner behind and on top of the wheel to sleep? He is therefore Bat Ham.
HOLY FUCK I’M DEAD
Humming birds are very friendly and love my red hair in the sunlight. My grandparents have at least five humming bird buddies, but there’s only one in this video. Too bad you can hear all of us yammering.
Talk about a leaping and hopping Moon Shadow. I dunno, all of the sudden I’m bombarding tumblr with my pets. Here is my happy doggy.
I’ve been trying to upload this all night. Nico’s anti toothbrush spine is good at fighting off my need to brush his fur.
Look at my hamster. Look at him.
This is Nico, my new Hammie! Apparently my parents thinking I’m depressed = being allowed to get a new rodent becuase I freaking love them.
He is the sweetest ickle fuzzy lumpkins. His cage is 100% pink because I like monochromatic color schemes, but that was before I knew I was getting a boy. He’s just too bad ass to care.
He is named after Nico Marlet, because all of my pets are named after artists that rock.
I can only hope that someday I can meet Mr Marlet and inform him that there is an adorable fluffy hamster named after him. Flattering?
What does English sound like to foreign ears?
We’ve all heard examples of fake Chinese or German from speakers who lack familiarity with either language. While typically cringe-worthy, these examples do raise interesting questions regarding our own language. What does English sound like to non-English speakers? After more than 40 years, Adriano Celentano’s “Prisencolinensinainciusol” remains one of the most illuminating examples.
The entire song is nonsense verse, neither English nor Italian, but the sounds are meant to resemble English. Linguist Mark Liberman wrote an interesting post about this sort of thing over at Language Log discussing yaourter, the French word for an attempt to speak or sing in a foreign language that one doesn’t know all that well. This often involves trying to sing a foreign song with nonsense or random words filling in the blanks. Liberman shares this wonderful quote from a random Internet user:
Just for the story, in France, when we don’t speak English and we want to imitate the sound, we call it “yaourter”(to yoghourt), the imitation sounds like a very nasal language, kind of like a baby crying. It mostly imitates the “cowboy” accent.
I love this, I didn’t realize it until I saw the video that we sounded so awesome
also be aware that this is also an american sounding accent and british english would sound as different as it does to them as it does to us
This is amazing…I’ve always wondered what English would sound like!
song full of swagger
This is so fascinating!
This is fascinating. My brain keeps trying to make sense of it and it’s SO WEIRD.
Put this in my likes but couldn’t stop thinking about it. This is so cool and I’ve always wondered what English would sound like if I couldn’t understand.
Not to mention it just sounds great.
Dailywh.at: The extraordinary new video for “Parler le fracas,” by French hip-hop groupLe Peuple de l’Herbe,“channels Orwell’sAnimal Farm, updated for the Occupy Wall Street era. Pigs in riot police gear face off with disenfranchised industrial workers — a goose, a chameleon, and hundreds of other small animals who combine forces to create a Godzilla-like monster.”
Prepare to be amazed.
This is beautifully done. I might not be able to understand a word of it, but it’s still pretty powerful.
A mother books The Dark Knight Batman for a birthday party. Everything goes as expected.
A runthrough of the level that the Gold Team built for AIPX’s Game Jam! This was an absolute BLAST to work on- it was essentially a non-stop (and incredibly productive) party in the 334 labs- and our team wound up winning the competition with this level! Hooray!
Most of my teammates are not tumblrfolk but my good friend Taylor was not only our captain, but also one of my very patient tutors. I learned so much from her and the other GADs and by the end of the weekend was able to operate Zbrush and unwrap/texture assets without a hitch. The dragon skull, tables, and flag platforms (not the round bit, just the square bases and hooked pillars) were all built/textured by me, and the ice stalactites were a joint effort between Taylor and I. The rest of the assets, textures, and layout were done by the rest of our incredibly talented team. Good job, guys! <3
GOLD TEAM RULESSSSS
This was completed in an insanely short amount of time, really impressive.
