Attention all MSTK Fans! As some of you may or may not know, Mike Nelson is one of UW Stouts only famous fictional alumni. The school has requested me to write an article about it, and I'm more then happy to do it! So here's my question; IF ANY OF YOU KNOW OF ANY REFERENCES TO THE SCHOOL IN ANY MST3K RIFFS Please let me know so I can add it to my research, thanks!
“Chris [Pratt] never uses a spit bucket. When you do scenes where a character is eating, you eat and then spit it out into a ‘spit bucket.’ Chris just keeps eating. If you see Andy eating a cheeseburger in a scene, you should know Chris Pratt ate like 8 cheeseburgers. I love that guy.”—Aziz Ansari (via hellagaby)
there was a 17 year old at this party tonight. i want to die. jesus though. at least i am home now. After again, coming out to a girl who “wanted to have babies” or something who then asked me “are you happy with your decision” … fuck off… I sometimes hate germany so much. //rant
Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPDwas proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.
And this may be one of the easiest ever… since I still don’t have a lot of “stuff” in Germany in general. I am just moving flats to more downtown (THANK GOD). And I am freaking out because my parents are coming to visit for 2 weeks and we are traveling a lot and my moving day is the exact center of their trip. And a guest from my former research group is also coming on my moving day… and he is going to live at my old place for three months… and furniture situation for him is very… unresolved. Anxiety levels extremely high.
Trying to just “roll” with it. Am not very good at this.
