I know *sobs* sadly I’m just not going to have enough time for much gaming over the next couple of months. I can see uni is going to be taking over my life for a while :(:(
yea I’m so pissed about it even after a week. blech. Guess it’s an excuse to start over and play more though :PMy whole life seems to be excuses to replay Mass Effect games, one after another.
I was so worried for this too. Zoe was definitely middle-of-the-road morality. But then I lost my save entirely :((((Noooo that sucks a lot :( I’m sorry.
YOU CAN DO IT. I was the ultimate paragade and I somehow pulled it off.I hope you’re right! The charm/intimidate system is the one thing I really don’t like about 2, which I think is arguably the strongest of the trilogy otherwise. But being explicitly punished for roleplaying is SO frustrating.
Urgh I want Miranda AND Jack’s loyalty, and my paragade playthrough is not helping me ouuuuutttt D:
Idina Menzel Appreciation Post!
One of my favorite theater artists, Idina Menzel, got hugely dissed at the Oscars. She came onstage to perform and was introduced as “Adela Tazeem” - or something quite like that. John Travolta (who introduced her) is getting a lot of flack for putting his foot in her big moment, but I say: better to light a candle than curse the darkness.
So this is a post to celebrate the fabulous Idina Menzel. If you don’t know her well, get to know her better! If you do, read on and sigh wistfully about how great she is!
Here’s the tldr for you:
Idina Menzel is a performer with incredible poise, power and charisma. She’s a wonderful actress and a world-class singer. Most importantly, she imbues the women she plays on stage and screen with both power and a rich emotional life: characters like Maureen, Elphaba and Elsa are mighty, compelling, and beautifully, humanly flawed.
They have meant a lot to me and to untold numbers of people around the world. They are exactly the sorts of characters we need more of, and Idina is exactly the sort of performer we need to see more of.
Beware of many pics and videos below the fold!
heeey john travolta has dyslexia - maybe we can stop making fun of his pronunciation
1) I can’t find anything that says he is dyslexic other than that article. It says,
with no source with an incredibly sketchy source that looks like it might be a disguised ad, that he’s spoken about how scientology helped him with dyslexia. I can’t find any reference to that, although Tom Cruise has said something to that effect, which leads me to wonder if that article has them confused.
Let me be very clear that I am not saying he isn’t dyslexic, nor do I need proof that he is - if he’s said it before, I believe him. It’s just that I can’t find any reference to him being dyslexic that predates the Oscars, or that amounts to something other than someone who doesn’t know him saying “he’s dyslexic.”
2) If you are a super big movie star and you are going onstage to introduce somebody who is not as big a movie star as you, You Have To Get Their Name Right.
First, you should know their name.
Second, you should have spoken their name out loud before you go onstage.
Third, you should have said it to other people, many times, and asked them if you are saying it correctly. Ideally you should speak to the person whose name it is, and ask them to correct you!
Fourth, emphasis on “many times.” You Have To Get Their Name Right.
You should not being relying on reading their name off a teleprompter - that’s true regardless of whether you are dyslexic or not.
If John Travolta is dyslexic, we shouldn’t be mocking his misreading of a teleprompter. Regardless of whether he is dyslexic or not, we should be angry at his lack of respect for Idina Menzel and the audience watching the Oscars.
EDIT: The statement that Travolta has spoken about dyslexia is sourced - to something really sketchy that looks like an ad somebody wrote for their snake oil dyslexia cure.
