Sorry this post is so long (open images in new window for better quality, tumblr apparently decided to butcher them :().
I don’t really have proper words for this thing, just that it’s about something very important in my life, and after ten years, I’m glad I could finally write this.
Magnus is a great opportunity for the chess world to evolve a little bit : he’s young, he’s charismatic, and he’s got a great public image. I’m really glad that he won, even though his opponent (Vishy Anand) is a fantastic and lovable player as well.
I know this “letter” will not reach him, but it wasn’t really written for him. For other players, yes, I guess? I’m sad that I don’t have much friends left in chess so I can’t give that to the community. So this is for you, comics/illustration lovers from tumblr <3
EDIT : TRANSCRIPT FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T READ CURSIVE!
SONG OF THE DAY
I always found that Metallica concerts are more epic when they open with this orchestral piece. It just makes it that much more awesome. The anticipation and the buildup throughout is great. I know Metallica got a lot of shit for the S&M concert but I thought it was a great idea. Not many, if any, especially from a metal band, had ever done something like this before. From a musician’s standpoint I think it was super creative and a big step out of their comfort zone. This is “Ecstasy of Gold” by Ennio Morricone.
I’ll make love to you. Like you want me to. (x)
ian mckellen and patrick stewart are so drift compatible that they’ve probably been piloting a jaeger for years and we just don’t know about it
