Secret cinema found beneath Paris.
In September 2004, French police discovered a hidden chamber in the catacombs under Paris. It contained a full-sized movie screen, projection equipment, a bar, a pressure cooker for making couscous, a professionally installed electricity system, and at least three phone lines. Movies ranged from 1950s noir classics to recent thrillers.
When the police returned three days later, the phone and power lines had been cut and there was a note on the floor: “Do not try to find us.” (via)
SECRET, MILDLY THREATENING UNDERGROUND COUSCOUS CINEMA
I WANNA GO
LET ME JOIN YOUR KIND, UNDERGROUND MOVIE PEOPLE
nO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS ENTIRE CINEMA WAS HIDDEN BEHIND AN UNDER CONSTRUCTION SIGN THAT LEAD TO A CHECK-IN DISK WITH A FULL CCTV HOOKUP THAT WOULD TURN ON AND RECORD ANY UNREGISTERED VISITORS. AND IF SOMEONE SNUCK IN? A TAPE OF BARKING SECURITY DOGS WOULD BEGIN TO PLAY.
BEYOND THE CRAZY FRONT DESK AND THE MOVIE THEATER, THERE WAS A STOCKED BAR AND TABLES AND CHAIRS, MEANING THAT AFTER CATCHING A FLICK IN AN ILLEGAL PARISIAN CATACOMB THEATER, YOU COULD THEN EAT COUSCOUS AND SIP A COCKTAIL NEXT DOOR. THERE WAS A PROFESSIONAL ELECTRICITY SYSTEM SET UP, AND AT LEAST 3 WORKING PHONE LINES. THIS SHIT WAS LIKE A BOND VILLAIN.
BETTER YET? IT WAS RUMORED THAT THE PLACE WAS SET UP BY THE UNDERGROUND FRENCH ART GANG UX “Urban eXperiment”, WHO NAVIGATES THROUGH THE PARISIAN UNDERGROUNDS AND ILLEGALLY RESTORES ABANDONED WORKS OF ART, ALONG WITH HOLDING FILM FESTIVALS IN THE BASEMENTS OF GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS. THEY EVEN RELEASED A SHORT FILM ABOUT THEIR WORK RESTORING THE ICONIC PANTHEON CLOCK OVER THE COURSE OF ONE YEAR. NO ONE SUSPECTED THEIR INVOLVEMENT, UNTIL THE CLOCK BEGAN TO WORK AGAIN AFTER 60 YEARS OF RUSTING.
IF YOU DON’T THINK CATACOMBS AND THE PEOPLE WHO HANG OUT IN THEM ARE SOME OF THE COOLEST FUCKING THINGS IN THE WORLD THEN I IMPLORE YOU TO EAT SOME COUSCOUS AND RECONSIDER.
In honor of the 50th anniversary, here’s links to all of the Classic Doctor Who episodes! Doctors One through Eight are featured here! Enjoy, everyone! If any of the links are broken, please let me know.
Feel free to reblog and add you own! Perhaps we can create some sort of Nine/Rose gif masterpost, cause that’d be sweet!
So, its really just every time he looks at her, isn’t it?
and every time she looks at him
Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away.
I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.
I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.
And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.
As we all know, punctuation is crucial. Despite the importance, however, it is fairly skipped over in school––specifically dashes, commas, and semicolons (seriously, when the fuck are you supposed to use those?)––so I’m here to help! And by “I’m here to help,” I mean, “I’m here to compile a masterlist of punctuation resources.”
Briefly discusses the use of periods, colons, semicolons, commas, question marks, apostrophes, hyphens, dashes, parentheses, exclamation points, and ellipses.
Very important. Covers everything from single lines of dialogue, to full paragraphs, to changing speakers.

Hyphens are used to join words together, but there are a few rules to usage.
It’s an illustrated guide. Enough said.
I guess what pissed me off about the first episode of the Fargo tv series is that, apart from the female police officer, who is diminished both in femininity (she is no longer pregnant) and in status (the confident chief Marge Gunderson is now the bumbling deputy Molly Solverson), every single…
You made some good points and I agree with you on a lot of it, but I have to disagree with what you’ve said about Molly (and not just because Allison is my friend). You’re saying that just because the character is no longer pregnant, that somehow makes her less feminine? I’m sorry, but I think that’s bullshit. And what kind of message does that send to women who can’t have children? That they’re inherently less of a woman? (Maybe you didn’t mean it like that, but that’s how it sounded to me.)
Regarding her status as a deputy, while I can see how you’d be disappointed in that, there was an entire scene with her and the chief where he flat out told her that she’d be chief some day because she’s extremely smart and she’s very good at her job. I think that’s promising. The fact that he’s dead now means that she’ll get the immediate chance to prove herself by solving his murder.
Like I said, you made a lot of good points about the rest of the women on the show. I just disagree with you about Molly.
