"#I assume I'm in that story about the Canadian strategic maple syrup reserve heist" ???? links or it didn't happen
callowyn

thetrollingchaos:

You can actually just put “Canadian strategic maple reserve heist” into Google and it will take you right to a New York Times article gloriously titled "In $18 Million Theft, Victim Was a Canadian Maple Syrup Cartel". There was some CWRPF talk about this that never actually turned into a story, so far as I know.

aw man I was so sure this was gonna be a due south fic

While the latest theft was a record breaker, it was not the first significant maple syrup theft in the province.”

MISHA COLLINS YOU PUT THAT SYRUP BACK WHERE IT CAME FROM OR SO HELP ME

rubato replied to your post “that music meme”

omfg this dial-up sound slowed down 700% is some fucking creepy ambient shit

right??? I want it to play in the background of horror scenes, like a cyperpunk horror movie where there are literal ghosts in the machines 

(or where the horror is that they have to go back in time to 1995 and try to operate the internet)

that music meme

"YOU CAN TELL ALOT ABOUT SOMEONE BY THE TYPE OF MUSIC THEY LISTEN TO. HIT SHUFFLE ON YOUR IPOD, PHONE, ITUNES, ETC AND WRITE DOWN THE FIRST 20 SONGS. HERE ARE THE RULES: NO SKIPPING, BE HONEST! THEN PASS THIS ON TO 10 PEOPLE"

I got tagged by rubato and probably others, so have some songs!

  1. Sugar, We’re Going Down" (cover) by Vitamin String Quartet [no seriously go listen to it I love strings]
  2. Back In Black" by AC/DC [which I have for SPN reasons]
  3. Beggar in the Morning" by the Barr Brothers [not directly SPN-related but the lyrics sort of remind me of Sam, like s5 Sam reflecting on s4 Sam, though that makes it sound like this song is gonna be sadder than it is]
  4. Alone" by the Glee cast [I admit, I have a lot of Glee songs, and this is probably one of the most ridiculous]
  5. For Good" by the Wicked cast [because apparently it’s Kristen Chenoweth hour up in here?? my soul is for musical theater I can’t help it]
  6. The Bell" by First Aid Kit [which ferricent rightly pointed out is about Mako Mori: Abhorsen]
  7. Catastrophe" by Forever the Sickest Kids [aww yiss altpop from my high school days]
  8. Hot Mess" by Cobra Starship [hahaha my life anthem]
  9. Bells of Notre Dame" by the Hunchback of Notre Dame cast [FUCK YEAH HUNCHBACK!!!! I CAN AND WILL SING THIS ENTIRE LONG-ASS INTRO AT YOU DO NOT TRY ME OMG DISNEY SONGS]
  10. The One I Love" by Greg Laswell [oh man I must’ve gotten this in summer of 2011 because listening to it is giving me novakcest nostalgia like whoa]
  11. I Must Be Dreaming" by The Maine [more high school jams]
  12. Ho Hey" by the Lumineers [there’s a great Merlin vid to this song, hipster alt folk is great I don’t even care]
  13. Breath of Life" by Florence + the Machine [everything by F+tM is about Claire Novak it’s not even interpretation anymore just fact]
  14. Duele El Amor" by Aleks Syntek & Ana Torroja [I don’t remember who gave this to me but it was also part of novakcest summer and currently resides in the playlist titled "these songs are unamurrkin"]
  15. Dial-up sound 700% slower" by YouTube [shit yes I downloaded this it’s terrifying and everyone needs to experience it]
  16. Doubleback (Acoustic)" by ZZ Top [omg this is the old west dance music from Back to the Future 3 which my dad spent like five hours hunting down because only the film version would do]
  17. Brother" by Lord Huron [WHAT A WINCESTUOUS SONG, I went on a huge Lord Huron kick this past winter and regret nothing]
  18. Joy to the World" by Amy Grant [because who doesn’t keep Christmas music around for the occasional slow August evening?]
  19. La La Lie" by Jack’s Mannequin [more high school music, this one definitely acquired because it was my older cousin’s fave for a while and I wanted to be Cool]
  20. Bad Moon Rising" by Creedence Clearwater Revival [well done iTunes way to end this meme on the creeping sensation that I am about to get BLINDSIDED BY A TRUCK]

Well, that doesn’t feel especially accurate, but now you have all witnessed my musical choices. Most of you have already done this, as I am incredibly slow, but I will tag thetimetravelinggiraffe because she told me to, rghayat-i in hopes of soliciting more dark country, and thegeminisage because any excuse for Liz to talk about music.

4ragon:

I bet before Carlos moved to Night Vale he used to regularly reinvent really useless household appliances all the time.

Like ‘Hey check this out it looks like a regular umbrella but it’s also COMPLETELY FIREPROOF’

and everyone would be like ‘Carlos why the hell would anyone NEED a fireproof umbrella if it’s already raining seriously stick to science’

but in Night Vale everyones like ‘Aw man this is PERFECT for when it starts raining fire/gasoline/literal death’ and Carlos is just like ‘My time has come’

as a follow-up to this, consider, pacrim mapped onto batman — stacker as bruce wayne, mako as dick grayson, herc as commissioner gordon, and this is the one instance in the world in which i am OK with the commish’s kid being a boy. 

pentecost industries

the death, years before, of stacker’s father in meaningless street crime

the version of batman who understands, deeply, that vengeance is an open wound, who wants to keep mako from putting on a mask and cape as long as he can, and how she becomes batgirl in response with the grudging aid and abetting of chuck hansen, detective in the GCPD, youngest ever get to ten homicide clearances

stacker returning to gotham on the death of his older sister, luna pentecost, who has been running the family empire after the death of his father and the incapacity of their mother, and imagine stacker’s guilt and grief at having let luna take the weight alone for so long, and then she is murdered by the trespasser crime family

tamsin sevier as leslie thompkins, although i will totally goddamn hear pitches for her in the serena kyle role, but fuck, listen, also, vanessa gottlieb as catwoman COME ON

caitlin lightcap in a wheelchair as oracle 

years after the death of his brother in the line of duty in a fight against knifehead when batman couldn’t save him, a villain escaped from arkham asylum, raleigh becket coming back to to gotham because of the anonymized, untraceable e-mail he gets that says 

where would you rather die?  here, or in gotham? 

OH MY DAYS RHOD WHAT HAVE YOU STARTED you know Scott Hansen sold out to the Hardship crime cartel in the middle of the biggest RICO sting of Herc’s career he’s somewhere parts unknown there are even rumours he’s one of the inmates in arkham but no journalist has been able to confirm and it’s mako that dreams of an alleyway where two shots ring out pearls and groceries and a single red shoe left behind on the ground past the police tape and little Mako being taken by the hand into Wayne manor and being told Tendo’s Alfred will find her some dinner and some pyjamas (tags from harrietvane)

SCREAMING IT IS MAKO WHO LOSES HER PARENTS IN AN ALLEYWAY WITH PEARLS AND HER LITTLE RED SHOE AND

UGH

UGH ALSO YES CLEARLY TENDO IS ALFRED AND ALISON IS THERE TOO AND

Man, Scott Hansen — I love the idea of him being a dirty cop, and Scott bends the rules, maybe takes a free drink when he shouldn’t, maybe lets a pretty girl off for a moving violation if she smiles at him and slips him her number, but what are those things in face of the fact that when Scissure opens fire at the graduation ceremony for the new class of Police Academy recruits, and everything is blood and screaming and terror and panic and running away  and when Herc looks up, in the middle of the overturned folding chairs, he sees, Scott in his dress blues, hat knocked off his head, hand over Chuck’s mouth and arm holding Chuck down, and when Herc follows the direction that Chuck is trying to crawl to if only Scott would let him —

His brother being the only reason that Herc Hansen only buries his wife in the aftermath of Scissure.  

I mean, there is some question whether Angela dies due to a bullet from Scissure or from the SWAT response team that shows up, but the emotional wound Herc takes that day from the loss of Angela and long, dark night of the soul that he goes through because, for the first time in his life, Herc Hansen is doubting his commitment to the GCPD — it’s deep enough that Herc takes years to climb out of it, and if he’d lost Chuck, too?

And then, years later, Herc standing in what was supposed to be a safe-house, looking at medics try to save the life of the lead witness against the head of the Hardship crime cartel, and the two dead young cops who were guarding him, and the CCTV that shows Scott Hansen coming up with a tray of coffee and a smile so that they open the door?

I want organized crime staining EVERYTHING in Gotham.
