Lake View Cemetery: The Haserot Angel 

It’s called the Angel of Death Victorious. Due to an effect of weathering and erosion on the bronze, the statue appears to be weeping black tears at all times.

Grom looks a lot more like Garrosh. You’ll see all the orcs will probably look different. Also having hopes for sexy orcs is kind of…well…it’s an orc. 

Okay but no.

Spend 10 minutes on tumblr and you’ll discover that a lot of people find creature-folk(orcs, trolls, turians, qunari) attractive. Did you somehow miss the massive panty-shredding explosion that happened when they announced the Iron Bull would be romancable in DA:I? How about when they showed Ganondorf’s Hyrule Warriors design?

Both of these dudes are big, mean, scary, and obviously not human. However, their features are human enough to be relatable to us humanfolk; and that’s just enough to look alluring to people who like that sort of thing. Warcraft orcs have a similar aesthetic.

Yes, they’re big, green, tusky musclebeasts. No, they certainly don’t look like Brad Pitt, but they look intelligent and humanoid enough for them to feel familiar. If they didn’t, I promise far, far fewer people would play them. I’m not saying everyone who plays an orc has a big green boner for them, but way fewer people would touch them if they didn’t look a little human-ish; if we didn’t see a little of ourselves in their faces..

Grom doesn’t look like Garrosh…

He doesn’t even really look like himself.

He looks like these guys.

Tolkien orcs and and uruk-hai were designed to look like horrible, ugly, unfamiliar beasts. That’s what’s scary about them, and that’s what lets the audience “other” them as “pure evil” creatures(this is why racial caricatures are so harmful, and so often used during wartime). Rarely in the LoTR films are we meant to be interested in the uruk-hai as anything but a closing threat. They’re inhuman, unfeeling tools for Sauron and Sarumon.

But in the Hobbit, they give a big bad that they wanted us to see as an active villain - one they wanted us to be interested in. So, surprise surprise..

He’s kind hot. Not hot like Thranduil or Thorin, to be sure, but certainly more alluring, more familiar, more relatable than the other orcs shown.

The cinematic screenshots I’ve see don’t paint Grom to look like a creature-guy, they paint him to look like a creature. It takes a step into uncanny valley territory. Inhuman and unrelatable; and therefore, unalluring. 

I am never not in love with Ingrid
also all of this 100%

What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

clehmentine:

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.
