Suprisingly unsurpising

irish-daisies:

Do you ever get really bad period cramps and you just lay in bed like ‘this is it this is the end’

And then you stil have to get up, shower, get dressed, force down some breakfst or t least coffee and go to school or work and there probably have to maintain a perky, cheery attitude because no way you’ll let people dismiss your opinions with “Nah, she’s probably on her period”, no, no, no, no way fucker, don’t you dare use my biology against me or I’ll swear I’ll reach down my pantes and throw m blood soaked tampon in your face!

siberianchan sagte: The swimwear was banned in 2009 or 2009. Considering how the only tech they really use are phones that are flip phones or don't look that much like smart phones (more like regular phones with a touch screen. I had one like these) - and the rest of tech, like Makos console are not really visible there, so... no cue for the timescale there, so the phones are our only hint, in short, the final scene is 2008, at latest. (KyoAni was throughout with their research, so I doubt they just made a mistake)

Yep, they were banned 2010 actually, because during the previous two years several records were broken and even famous swimmers complained about the new types (Michael Phelps for example). These types are only banned for FINA tournaments though, so I suppose it’s fine using them for training and small championships, which is pretty much the only kind of swimming we’ve seen in Free! And it wouldn’t have made sense to change Rin’s kind for like the last scene. Plus they’re still used for research.

Either way I wasn’t trying to complain, just pointing out something that I found interesting ^^

:D I find it intersting and a nice hint regarding the setting of this. (also I didn’t know about the breaking of so many records - that would explain at least a bit of Rins ans Harus mad times (yes, they are extremely talented, both and they train and improve but when swimgear makes a difference then they will feel it - and I bet the better you are on your own the bigger the difference will be (or the more you’ll notice it, because more than a few milliseconds still seems unlikely.)

And… just let’s pause for a momentt to fangirl over KyoAnis insane love for detail.

I actually later realized one of the reasons for banning it were the ridiculous prices of the suits, making it impossible for swimmers from smaller countries or with less sponsors to buy them, thus making the competition unfair.

And then I found out there’s now a company (well propably more than one) making them for afordable prices (for example the kind Makoto uses is avaiable for around 40$ instead of 200$+) and acording to the reviews they’re as good as the expensive one’s from Speedo etc. So chances are they’re going to be allowed at some point again.

So maybe that’s another reason KyoAni decided to use them. Eitherway their research sure is amazing!

Well, that’s one good reason to ban stuff (either that or increase of sponsorship but manage sponsoring a couple dozen potentially pro athlets each country, so… banning the stuff some competitors can’t afford to even the odds out is awesome. Either you grant privileges to all of them or you strip them from those  who have them. First is preferrable and USUALLY more practicable, but if that doesn’t work…)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyways - we definitely wont get a season 3 (and I’m ok with that. While I’m interested in Kou, Rei, Nagia, Ai and.. well, ok, Momo too. A bit… with the other three more or less gone it… hrm. It would not be impossible but it would be a hard act to follow with a half-new cast and I would hate to see the franchise devolve into a zombie). But we’ll definitely get the shorts from the DVD release in march. and very probably 1 or 2 OVAs (or a mini series of 6 OVA episodes or something). Hopefully they’ll show us both how the kids ar doing and how the Grow ups are competing and studying and working hard and maintaining their happy threeway relationship).

Just throwing my two cents in to say that I’m glad there won’t be another season as well. It would probably just ruin everything. That was a pretty good, fitting ending and that’s how I like it.

Yep. I mean, I wont mind if KyoAni decides on a cotinuity series, that has our kiddos and some glimpses on our grown ups… but if they did, I’d like them to start fresh, without it being a direct sequel. New characters, new issues (I am suprised how uch you CAN get out of high school sports and teenage worries), new title (considering how “free” was Harus schtick and Haru’s not in school anymore and just following him struggling with getting on pro level with only Makoto around and maybe Rin on skype… while it would be stock full of domestic bliss, Free!s main appeal was the group dynamic and friendship. (aside of the beefcake, slash and very thoughtful working on mental problems - season 1 was about self harm and depression while season 2 was in part about not-relapsing and nobody can convince me otherwise)
… while it would be interesting how KyoAni works out close, intense long-distance relationships - both romantic and platonic - and while this can be stuff for a whole series I think it is time for Free! to stop where it is and maybe bless us with some OVAs to ease us out and maybe into a new series about mabe Nagisas and Reis last year there. (or their last day. Hading over the reigns to someone new before disappearing into their honeymoon.
(as I said, I certainly wont mind a new series in the Free!verse)

Also, can we talk about this man who spent at least half of his life being called gay, homo, fag -in every worst meaning of the words- and now has the guts to appear in a video touching/ being touched by other men and is silently slapping so many people across the face while at it.

Don’t forget that the church was literally so impressed they gave him a medal instead of imprisoning him or executing him

Mozart only needed to hear a piece once to play it better than the original. And on top of that, they believed all his music to have been created by someone else, not this kid, so they locked him in a tower for a period of time (forget how long) with only music paper. When they came back all the paper was filled and he had written on the walls as well. AND ALL THE MUSIC WAS PHENOMENAL. how much more perfect can you get than Mozart? If you want to know more: watch the movie Amadeus. It’s historically accurate but also funny at times. Watch. it.

so he was the first to illegally download a song

And for those of you that would like to hear the first illegally downloaded song that the Vatican kept a secret for so long because it was “too beautiful for human knowledge” You can find it here.

Okay but if that was the song, then… how? 99% of it is choire song, did 14-year-old Mozart speak fluent Italian, too?

It’s church music from the 1600s, so my guess is it’s latin. Which Mozart indeed knew.
