Hannibal AU - Interview with the Vampire

A vampire named Will tells his life story to a reporter. Will describes his first kill and evolving relationships with Hannibal Lecter, his maker, and Abigail, their daughter. Unlike Abigail and Hannibal who revel in murderous bloodshed, Will is tormented by a moral dilemma—he believes it is wrong to kill, but he must kill to eat.

Game of Thrones filming at Scrabo Tower for season five

tumblrofthrones:

According to people on Twitter, Game of Thrones filming signs (distinct pink “GOT” signage) have been spotted in the area of Scrabo Tower in Northern Ireland in the last few days. Scrabo Tower is west of Newtownards in County Down.

No mention was made of film crews being seen or any actors, only the signs indicating that filming was happening or had occurred.

Thoughts on what part the Scrabo Tower site could play in season five?

Look y’all, I’m not in Teen Wolf fandom anymore, I cop to that. BUT THIS is a total shit show. 

Fandom belongs to FANS and should not EVER be on a website that the powers that be create for their own purposes or in the control of a corporate sponsor (.mtv is not cute). Placing work on the website, ADMITTING to the desire to move fandom into an area where they have more control and removing the interaction fans have with each other to a space in which 1. you don’t hold the rights to your work and standards are set not by the community but the powers that be and 2. you’re removed from the traditions of fanspace is totally gross and inappropriate on their part. They aren’t the first ones to try this bullshit either, they’re just cloaking it in different words.

Please don’t fall for this and if you DO and are curious about it please carefully read the TOS for the site you are signing up for and learn about how they can and will use your content for profit in the future. Protect yourself, protect your community. Ultimately, it’s your choice but it should always be YOUR choice and YOUR experience and YOUR fandom. Bringing it out of the realm of fans, where you didn’t create the website, you didn’t make the rules, you can’t do whatever the fuck you want, is not okay. It’s not what fandom is about. Teen Wolf PTB aren’t PART of fandom. You are.

Save Market Basket, Get Arthur T. Demoulas Back

This week may be the last week I have a job. Please take a moment to read this entire post, if you have the time and energy, and at least sign the petition in the link above. It would mean an awful lot, getting a buncha signatures in.

Some serious problems have been going down in the uppermost managements of my company lately. That company is Market Basket, previously owned by Arthur T. Demoulas. A month ago, Arty T. and a few key veteran board members were fired by his greedy cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas and the new Board Of Directors, so they could have full control over the company.

Now, we are rallying up and speaking out. Tumblr, we need all the help you can offer to us.

This week, we are trying to get Arthur T. Demoulas put back in office of our company. For years, he has done nothing but good for the company. He has made it grow exponentially, always put customers first, and treated us employees well with promised wage increases the longer we work, annual bonuses around March and Christmas, and our profit sharing program. He’s also used all the money in his power to help communities for important projects. More than once he’s helped communities to flourish and benefit because of the stores and has also protected lands for people who would otherwise be disturbed by new unnecessary developments.

Arthur S. Demoulas has outright said that he will run the company ‘as it should be’- a business. Which of course means he won’t give a flying fuck about communities, he’s said that he will get rid of profit sharing, chances are he will cut back on many of our hours, and higher prices at the store will become a thing so that he and a few other share holders can put more money in his pocket. He has not been with this company long at all- he has been off to the side, gaining money on his share of private stocks he has in the company for a long while, and only recently managed to weasel his way in with the help of the new Board of Directors.

Speaking of the new BOD, it’s important to note that one of them, James Gooch, is a former Radio Shack executive. Let’s please keep notice that Radio Shack is very close to bankruptcy. So this is the kinda person that’s running our company right now, and making our decisions.

Arty T. was axed about a month ago. This spurred action in our company. 6 important figures resigned when he was fired. And two weeks ago, the entirety of upper management (warehouse and main office) threatened to walk out by 4:30 PM on Thursday if he wasn’t reinstated. The BOD did not comply, and as such, everyone took vacation time and sick pay to collectively leave. Without warehouse, we aren’t getting trucks in. Without trucks, we’re not getting product in. Without product coming in, our shelves are starting to look empty. The perishable departments are near cleaned out at this point of one of our biggest stores in Londonderry, store #42.

While they were taking vacation time to try to rally about this, 8 important employees in upper management were outright fired by mail courier Sunday. Collectively between the 8 that were fired, they had 280 years of experience in the company, with clean slates on being good to the company in the past. This effort comes to try and shut them up, to stop the protests, but in all honesty, it’s something spurring us to rebel more. On top of that- and this I unfortunately only have spoken word from other employees- the board hired and is trying to pay truck drivers $1,000 for each delivery they successfully make to the store. I was personally outside yesterday when we saw a wayward Market Basket truck attempting to turn in at the wrong area, to try and find where to go to try to make the delivery. I laughed my ass off as I watched the poor driver being forced to turn around and leave; someone had stuck Save Market Basket signs onto the back of the truck, without the truck driver’s noticing.

All 71 of our stores are rallying. All of us are doing our part to try and get Arty T. back where he belongs- as complete owner and CEO of our company, where he can do the most good. The shelves are bare, and we are asking shoppers to stop shopping there for one week. The only way to get to the board and Arthur S. is through their wallets. If we do enough damage, show how badly we do not want Arthur S. as our CEO and how badly things have gone under his name, we may have the government on our side if this has to go to court. As it stands, everyone in the stores minus the Store Directors themselves- even though they’re doing their part as well to help with these protests, and organize them- are protected by law to protest for better working conditions.

And that part about not having a job? Well, this is straight from our store director, unconfirmed at this time but plausible and very much believeable.- Arthur S., if he has his way with the company, would fire any part time employee to cut back on absolutely all hours due to the loss of profit. All of front end in #42 would be gone- including me. Only the full time employees would be left to take care of the store while it is bare bones and till it can get back up on its feet, which I’m assuming would not happen due to how much customers are behind this. So do I have another choice in the matter? Not really. It’s either this, or try and find a job at another business nearby. And pay more for groceries at Hannafords or Shaws, both of which are ridiculously pricey. We’re not even going to talk about Walmart.

So, I ask you this, one who has read all this way. Signal boost this. Get this out on a national, no, international level. Talk about this. Reblog this post. Tell your friends to reblog this post. You hate capitalism? You hate greed? Hate how the little guys like us always suffer under the big thumb of the greedy CEOs? Reblog this post. Consider signing the petition. We met our goal within one day for the petition. If you’re in the New England area, don’t shop at Market Basket for one week, if you’re financially able to. Tell everyone you know not to as well. (Chances are we won’t have what you need, anyways.) Tweet your support under the #marketbasket and #savemarketbasket tags. Talk about it on Facebook. Do whatever you can to get word out.

We have a chance to do something astronomical in this day and age- we have a chance to defy greed, to oust a very powerful CEO we are not happy with. Even several Senators are behind this- state senators! We have a good chance to fight back. But we need your help to make it possible. Please, please at the very least, signal boost the ever living DAYLIGHTS out of this post. I wish for it to have hundreds, thousands of notes here on Tumblr. The more, the better. Please signal boost, please sign. This is our last chance to make an impact on so so many important communities in Mass, NH and Maine.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON! 
I want to make sure every one knows about this and what it can do to your pets 
this is what has happened to my sisters cat after she wore a hartz flea and tick collar and now has a burn like wound on her neck. please pass this on and do not buy hartz’s products! they use poison in their products pets have died because of this!!
http://www.hartzvictims.org/

Yes this is my cat she is doing fine at the moment but I’m so sorry for the people who’s pets are not so lucky

oh my god
PLEASE REBLOG THIS PEOPLE
save pets!

Hartz is the worse EVER! my aunt used it and it ended up killing two of her cats. only one survived but she had the worse skin condition. NEVER USE HARTZ

BETTER REBLOG THISS!!!

Guys this is an actual issue. We had Hartz collars for my dog and he kept having seizures. one seizure he had on the stairs and fell backwards down the stairs, and he also stop breathing from these seizures. When I found out about Hartz causing this I took it off my dog and he hasn’t had a seizure since. And he used to have one at least every few months. DON’T USE HARTZ.


There is far too much poison in those collars. Hartz is the worst, but the best idea is to avoid all flea collars: go to your vet and ask about the recommended treatments available—-safe and effective. It’s disgraceful that they are allowed to sell this crap.
