I had a pretty scary thought about Weeping Angels origin -
So remember how in ‘The time of angels’ the Weeping Angels were hiding out and losing power? They started showing cracking in their forms as the statues but then we did find out they were still angels even without all the wings they were just really old.
There was a rumor…

i think feminism is really great and important but some people on this website use it as an excuse to be absolute dickwads to boys and it seems like they are striving for dominance, not equality.

Oscars 2014 Best Dressed
There’s no question that last night’s 86th Oscars will go down as one the most well dressed awards nights in history. With most of Hollywood’s favorite stars and personalities impeccably dressed for last night’s show, it certainly wasn’t as easy as previous Oscar nights to quickly put a celebrity in the Worst Dressed bucket. Still, as with any red carpet event, there were inevitably style favorites that looked more polished than the rest of their peers. Here are some of the best dressed ladies and gents from last night’s Oscars:
Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen, Lupita Nyong’O in Prada, Amy Adams in Gucci Couture.
Charlize Theron in Dior, Anne Hathaway in Gucci, Rachel Smith in Sherri Hill.
Portia De Rossi in Naeem Khan, Kate Hudson in Versace, Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive, Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture, Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein.
Leonardo DiCaprio in Armani, Channing Tatum in Gucci, Brad Pitt in Tom Ford (excellent examples of the notch, peak, and shaw lapels).
Jared Leto in Saint Laurent (cheers to the white jacket and red bow tie combo), Michael B. Jordan in Givenchy (and check out the metal-plated dress shoes he rocked), Chris Hemsworth (brave in burgundy).

Ugandan President’s Daughter Reveals She is Gay -
In a startling revelation, the daughter of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni admitted today during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda that she is homosexual, and that she is revealing this fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.
Diana Kamuntu, Museveni’s daughter said that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it.
“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,” said Kamuntu.
“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.
The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.
The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.
In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.
As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni could be reached for comment.
But your best friend is still your best friend. Even from half a world away. Distance can’t sever that connection. Best friends are the kind of people who can survive anything. And when best friends see each other again, after being separated by half a world and more miles than you think you can bear, you pick up right where you left off. After all, that’s what best friends do. — (via lostwiththewolves)
