apfelgranate replied to your post “punishandenslavesuckers replied to your post “Oh Blacklist. Your plots…”…do the episodes before these also contain klattenhof in pain and/or tied up or can i skip right over those
there is an episode about a lady whose name starts with a z or involves a z, and that one involves him getting schooled, natasha romanoff style, by her. he is delightfully outclassed and ends up choked out on the floor.
harrietvane tells me there is an ep before the ansel ones where i probably zoned out where klattenhoff’s char goes undercover as a villain who feels no pain?
god bless harrietvane.
the one where he gets his ass kicked is 1x6, and the one with the arm-slashing shenanigans (as well as even more bad writing than usual) is 1x4. However he’s in ~casual~ clothes in that one, so it evens out.
But yeah, I’m also mostly watching just to shake my head at both how bad it can be and how pretty Diego is, and eventually cheering for Spader being his awesome self. I’m super happy for their ginourmous viewership, but I can’t say I understand how they get it.
I heard a theory that Jotunheim isn’t only a place in Sagas, it has actually been a real place and that that place is called Finland today. The name Jotunheim comes from its first king, Fornjoth, “The Old Jotun” or “The Ancient Giant”, whose people were called Jotuns. Fornjoth had three sons: Hler (also known as Aegir or in Finland, as Väinämöinen), Kare (Ilmarinen in Finland) and Logi (in Finland he was called Liekkö or even Liekki, which means flame in Finnish - or Lemminkäinen). Logi has also mentioned in a list of later kings of Finland, but one theory tells that he went to Northern Norway and established a kingdom there.
(Why Jotuns were called giants can be because in those days (somewhere in 400-700) people’s average length was ca 140-160 cm, but the skeletons that have been found in Finland were even over 190 cm.)
#they call gemma a fierce mama bear?#HAHAHAHA#tara knowles is the only woman on this show worth calling a fierce mama#because her kids mean more to her than HERSELF#more to her than her FREEDOM#more to her than her LIFE#gemma’s maternal instinct means that she needs to be needed#tara’s maternal instinct means that she needs to protect#there is a huge fucking difference#lemme tell you that
and here I’d given up on drawing for today
His body isn’t even cold yet and the New York times has already put out a shameful article declaring Nelson Mandela to be an “icon of peaceful resistance”. News outlets around the Western world are hurrying to publish obituaries that celebrate his electoral victory while erasing the protracted and fierce guerrilla struggle that he and his party were forced to fight in order to make that victory possible. Don’t let racist, imperialist liberalism co-opt the legacy of another radical. Nelson Mandela used peaceful means when he could, and violent means when he couldn’t. For this, during his life they called him a terrorist, and after his death they’ll call him a pacifist — all to neutralize the revolutionary potential of his legacy, and the lessons to be drawn from it.
Don’t fucking let them.
