I present to you, the final FULL video that I’ve been working on. I am so freaking happy that I finally got this done. I think it’s okay for what it is. I’ve said a thousand times I’m not a very good video maker. But when the inspiration strikes, I have to do something if I have the resources to do so. I’m more than happy if this video inspires others to use the same song and make their own Stucky vids. I invite it willingly and I would love links cause I’d love to see others works that are probably loads better than mine. But I’m content and very happy. I just watched it on Youtube myself and it looks like Youtube didn’t destroy the timing and such as it’s known to do on occasion. I’m so proud. I hope you all like it.
slyth-princess asked: Oh my god I just (finally) got the chance to sit down and watch your stucky vid, and I am officially dying from feels. It was so beautiful!!! I cannot wait to see the finished product. I am actually dying right now!!!
OMG! Thank you. :D I’m actually about to link to the full vid on Youtube. I hope you like it.
It’s going through YouTubes uploader!!!! Hopefully it won’t fubar it. I’m so excite!!!
So as I save for final inspection I wanna say I apologize for the really slow last bit. But if it looks good to me I’m publishing anyway. I had to go find a different mp3 of the song cause the one I had kind of cut off too abruptly for my taste but it looks like I got it all lined back up good. So once it saves this last time I’ll watch it and make sure there are no small slip ups and the end actually looks good to me. Wish me luck. I’m almost done with my first Stucky vid.
Guys!!! I’m literally finalizing my video! I got a bit lazy at the end but I’m working on the last bit of editing.
So I don’t know how well this pic comes up. But I was looking through the deleted scenes from Avengers for my vid. And I never fucking noticed this! His phone was dead! “Charge for 6 hours” and a dead battery symbol. Please tell me I’m not the only one who actually noticed what the phone said this late in the game? I never knew that’s why he didn’t call. I thought he was too nervous or afraid. I mean obviously come Winter Soldier we know he’s been visiting her. But still. I never noticed why he didn’t call her sooner.
This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more.
But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.
I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for?
It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.
Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.
Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson.
The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.
And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!
Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.
Okay, what else?
Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.
Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.
You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.
And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE.
If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!
Coolest app I’ve ever downloaded.
My dad uses this, and he loves it! He’s been multilingual for a long time (Spanish, Portuguese, Italian) and he says it’s taught him things that even he didn’t know. I might be using it for my german soon too, ‘cus I’m definitely rusty on that. Harumph
I’ve used this to brush up on my German. Duolingo is pretty darn amazing. There’s even a nifty smart phone app you can get for too.
I found Duolingo better and easier to use than Rosetta Stone. And it’s free! :O
Me and a few friends discovered this recently and we’ve been using it. I love it. I’m brushing up on my German. Took it in high school and had a really good teacher and she actually made me want to keep learning. So I’m glad I found this Web/app
BREAKING: There is a video a protestor recorded that shows the cops swung first..inciting the riot. #Ferguson
- NO ONE in #Ferguson attacked chief Jackson
- NO ONE WAS TRYING TO HARM CHIEF JACKSON. LOOK: http://instagram.com/p/tZWH6Mr4H4/ this is seconds b4 the mayhem. #Ferguson cc @ShaunKing
- I was right by the chief for much of his walking @ShaunKing @KMOV. No one attacked him. Folks were trying to protect him if anything!
- Fox and other media outlets falsely reporting that protestors attacked police chief. Live streams show otherwise in #Ferguson
And then the magical traveling circus of scholastic would randomly show up
at the motherfucking BOOK FAIR
I seriously miss the book fair.
Wait, you mean these don’t exist anymore?
We even had them in Pakistan and they were a big hit.
Oh the good old days
