Yesterday: EdwardThis dream started like before, except I had fallen asleep early, the clock read ten at night. I know it takes him a few minutes to reach this room so I played with the instruments. Playing 'Yesterday' (The Beatles) on a beautiful french horn there. I closed my eyes, getting into playing this song and enjoying the mood it gave to this dream. When I reached the middle part of it Edward soft lips brushed my neck, I jumped a little, startled.
"Dammit Edward" I said through a big smile.
He laughed and looked at the clock, "Someone was a little enthusiastic."
I pushed him playfully, getting up to put the instruments away. He followed, looking through all of the ones that I had out.
"You play all of these?" he frowned.
"Yeah, which ones can you play?"
"Huh?" he was surprised.
"You mean you've been stuck in my head for so long and never learned to play anything?" I said playfully mocking him.
He crossed his arms, blushing a little of embarrassment.
"I did try you know but not everybody
Meeting Edward: The First DreamWhen he first came to me it was in a room of white walls, shelves and posters of everything I like, and a big grey bed in the center, I lay on it on my own for a while looking about the room and playing with the instruments there. Then a door opened silently and he came in,and sat next to me on the bed, I was frightened by him at first, he was pale and strong with messy brown hair and caramel colored eyes.
"Who are you?" I asked shyly
"The love from another life." His voice was clear as a bell and soft as velvet.
"Where are we?"
"In your dreams, the only place I can find you, for now atleast."
"What do you mean by 'for now'?"
"I'm just a tiny remnant of the love someone gave you in your past life, someone else will hold the other half, your soul mate."
I nodded while pulling everything together in my head, A clock on the wall read four in the morning, I didn't have much time left here, just four hours. He did the same, some sadness and longing appeared in his eyes, it was heartbreaking
Notes To self: 6-27-13Have you ever had dreams that were so good that you cried when you woke up from them.
Which made me think, what if every time you were born and you cry it was because your last life was so good you didn't want to leave it behind.
A Name and A Face: Trailer 1I sat there. My cell rang, and there it was. A face and a place, no names or times. A gun in my hand, the trigger soft with wear. I took a train to him, finding him on the platform, he was looking for me. When hks eyes met mine he began to run, yet no fear could be seen in him, only an urgency that would be difficult to stop. He was skilled, it was obvious he had similar training to me, he seemed older than me, 30 or so.
I cornered him on the top of a building, the far off sound of traffic echoed below us. I held the gun between us, he took a step toward the ledge. I didn't say anything but he smiled when my eyes widened.
“ You're not completely lost then?” He said softly.
“Its always that first shot that sounds the loudest.”
He spread his arms out and fell off of the ledge, I didn't need to look off of the ledge to know he was dead, the screams of women were enough. I sent the report to headqua

RE: 'What People Are Doing By Being Anti-Feminist'First off, why the hell is that piece under "Historical" in the Non-Fiction category? There's nothing even remotely historical about anything on that list. You're just voicing your opinion, so it should be under "Editorial." Second, it is your opinion because you don't give any damn sources for any of those on the list. So I'm going to leave some of those alone and voice my rebuttal/counter-opinion on the ones that are my favorites:
Dimissing that cat-calling is still an issue.*dismissing
Someone be honest with me here. Is it really that fucking hard to just keep walking away and ignoring the shitheads? Because I admit, I've never been cat-called, despite the fact that I've been given compliments by a few guys about how I look. And those aren't sexual harassment, those are legit compliments. I may be self-conscious and have a bit of low self-esteem issues, but I know a compliment when I hear it because they just make me want to run and hide. After being criticized

Deep Cliff #46 Bang Bang by Jessie J
Music Review: Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Manaj
Hello and welcome to yet another Deep Cliff, where I listen to your questions and bring you in depth answers. I want it to be known that I love music. I think that music is art that can be heard rather than seen. It’s expression…it carries a message. I have always had a great love for music, and while I may not like all genres…all music appeals to someone, and thus I can’t be a total hater. With that in mind…there are some songs that become sinfully famous. And when I say sinfully famous, I mean these are songs that are essentially trash…but manage to become quite popular. Case and point: Bang Bang by Jessie J, featuring Ariana Grande and rapper Nicki Manaj.
Bang Bang was released in July of 2014 and is featured on Jessie J’s new album “Sweet Talker.” This song did commercially well in America and reached Billboards top 100, peaking at number three at first
Super Mario Bros. 3 - An Overrated Classic? If you ask the average Mario fan what the top three games are, he/she will probably mention Super Mario World and Super Mario 64 and conclude that Super Mario Bros. 3 is the greatest game in the series. It is an NES classic to be sure -- it was revolutionary in 1990. It's still fun to this day!
On the other side of the coin, Mario fans tend to criticize the New Super Mario Bros. series, citing all five games as being identical. First of all, that's extremely unfair to the first NSMB for Nintendo DS. That one is brimming with features and details that didn't carry over to the rest of the NSMB series: Original bosses, SM64 elements, a competitive 1-on-1 mode, and a slew of competitive mini-games for 4-player mayhem. Secondly, when you seriously think about and compare them, aren't SMB3 and NSMB cut from the exact same cloth?
*NOTE: From here on out, NSMB will refer to the series as a whole, no
The YouTube Hater Dilemma So, I happened to be scrolling through the comments section on SkyDoesMinecraft's latest Cops and Robbers video (hysterical, as usual). As I was reading through the comments, I came across A LOT of comments either hating on Sky because, well, they want to hate on him, or were complaining about how his channel isn't what THEY wanted it to be, that it was too different from what they were used to.
I decided to go check out another channel, to see what they had uploaded today.
After watching the videos I didn't get to watch until that point, I went through the comments sections.
The same thing as Sky's channel. People complaining, hating, and (sighs) filling the place with comments that had NOTHING to do with the video.
I'm not just talking about Sky's channel. I'm talking about a lot of peoples' channels.
Here recently, I've been noticing a huge increase in the amount of hate people are leaving in the com
Top 30 Fictional Good Guys #20 - ElsaYeah yeah, she's currently Disney's most popular heroine. Some people say Frozen's just a fad, but I think Elsa has staying power and will go down in history as one of Disney's great characters.
Why, you ask?
Well for one thing, she offers a very interesting perspective on having supernatural powers. Sure, we have no shortage of angsty superheroes, but most of the time their powers are still portrayed as the coolest thing ever and their angst comes more from their responsibility of protecting people than their powers themselves. Elsa's powers, on the other hand, are more of a curse than a blessing. While her power is awesome, she can't control it, which results in danger for those around her. At the beginning of the movie, a charming playtime between two children turns into a tragedy when Elsa accidentally strikes Anna's head with ice and almost kills her, which immediately shows us the struggle to come.
Elsa's struggle has been called a metaphor for everything from mental disorders to
