The now-poignant final photograph of Vince McMahon and the Ultimate Warrior together at the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame, three days before Warrior’s passing.
I made this for my English class persuasive ad assignment. We’re supposed to try and use pathos/ethos/logos to market a product in a certain way. With Wii U having the problem of confusing the ever-living crap out of casual gamers as to what it even is, I tried to better explain it in a direct way.
My teacher emailed me back, asking if I found this or if I made it using existing images. After I stated I made it, she sent me this:
I love my teacher lol. She’s so awesome.
When I was younger, I was optimistic about everything. But as I grew older, I slowly learned the ugly truths, and I became “realistic”, or pessimistic and cynical. Even so, deep inside me, my optimism still exists, but it exists as my dreams, my passions, and my motivation for change.
Last night, Daniel Bryan beat Triple H in the opening match and won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of Wrestlemania 30, beating both Randy Orton and Batista.
Couldn’t have called that one back in 2010. Things are moving in the right direction - glad to see it! And glad to see Daniel Bryan get his much deserved big win.
How was your date on Saturday?!
Wonderful, stranger. :)
I introduced her to Noodles & Company, took her to Barnes & Noble, and then we hung out until 3AM. I don’t ever do this date stuff with people, so it was yet another hurdle I got over in these past 4 months.
Things are going well for us. Thank you for asking.
"The suffering or the bad memories are as important as the good memories, and the good experiences. If you sort of, can imagine life as being 99% of the time quite linear, and most of the time you’re in a state of neither happiness nor sadness. And then that 1% of the time you experience moments of very crystalised happiness, or crystalised sadness, or loneliness or depression. And I believe all of those moments are very pertinant. It’s like I said to you, that for me it’s mostly those crystalised moments of melancholy which are more inspirational to me. And in a strange way they become quite beautiful in their own way. Music that is sad, melancholic, depressing, is in a kind of perverse way more uplifting. I find happy music extremely depressing, mostly - mostly quite depressing. It’s particularly this happy music that has no spirituality behind it - if it’s just sort of mindless party music, it’d be quite depressing. But largely speaking, I was the kind of person that responds more to melancholia, and it makes me feel good. And I think the reason for this is, I think if you respond strongly to that kind of art, it’s because in a way it makes you feel like you’re not alone. So when we hear a very sad song, it makes us realise that we do share this kind of common human experience, and we’re all kind of bonded in sadness and melancholia and depression."
