↳ day five: one underrated moment:
Rose resets the lever, risking her own life (she had no idea that Pete would save her) and her relationship with the man she loves, to ensure that the Daleks and Cybermen are successfully sent into the Void.
Yesterday morning (8/16) @reynaflo and I completed the 50,000 meter rowing challenge, 5 days before the deadline! Late in celebrating but have to acknowledge all of the hard work and persistence we put in to accomplish this goal! Reyna actually went to 50,025 ( plus ~500 this morning!) let’s see how much more we can get by the 21st! Great job! Also, can’t wait to hear when the others reach their 50K. :)
foreshadowing in the buffyverse (part 2)
→ dawn’s arrival in to the world and buffy’s exit from it
This is one of the more well known examples of foreshadowing in the show but also the most intricate. Dawn’s presence is first hinted at in 3x22 (“Miss Muffet”) by Faith and is then referred to as such again by one of Glory’s victims in 5x2. The 730 stands for the number of days in two years. Two years pass exactly between this episode and 5x22 (withing the show) when Dawn is destined to die (hence the countdown). This number shows up on Buffy’s clock in 4x22, however Tara points out that it is “completely wrong” as one year has passed and now only one year remains of the “countdown”. Faith mentions “little sis” in a dream in 4x15. Both these scenes take place in Buffy’s bedroom which is the first place the audience ever sees Dawn. And Tara’s warning (originally intended to be delivered by Faith for continuity) “be back before Dawn” is given in the previous episode to Dawn’s first appearance. Faith is also responsible for foreshadowing the time of Buffy’s death. During the bodyswap of 4x16, Faith uses a credit card (either Buffy or Joyce’s), with the expiration date of May 2001. Buffy’s death takes place in the same month of the same year and this episode (5x22) aired on May 22 2001, almost 730 days (so roughly two years) after 3x22 first aired on television.
Hi, I’m Chris Pratt. I’ve been challenged by Bob Iger and Vincent D’Onofrio to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Gentlemen, I accept your challenge. Uh, now, that’s twice I’ve been challenged, so I’m gonna do it slightly different. Instead of doing one bucket of ice, what I’m going to do… I found this, it’s called Blue Ice Vodka and in lieu of the bucket of ice, I’ll be drinking this. (x)
