It was fairly anti-climactic. The design here doesn't look bad, but the actual execution was....off. I feel like it didn't quite fit the tone and theme of the show very well. It was a bit too comic-booky (the reveal) if that makes sense. It's almost like they filmed those scenes differently?
The black pajamas fit the look and feel of the show very well (though he did look like Dread Pirate Roberts). There's a simplicity there(and in the comic book) that's missing here.
I'm not as concerned with the "faithfulness" of the costume to the books, but it needs more red and to be a bit more streamlined.
The only thing that really "works" about this costume is that it definitely puts DD in the same universe as the MCU. It does echo Captain America's costume in some respect. Still it's less iconic.
Great work by . One of commenters sums it up perfectly regarding Anti-gays: They're not being silenced, they're losing the argument. Check it out.
"How Do You Know When You're Overtraining a Muscle?"
I've been working out for 12 years, and lately it seems like my biceps have hit a plateau for growth. Now, I've recently made some changes to my workouts that I hope will improve things, but on the chance I don't see the gains I'm hoping, I thought I'd ask you plussers about overtraining.
Does it feel a certain way? Are you sore longer than you should be? Do you start to lose mass? What are the signs that you're overtraining other than just not gaining?
I walk out of the gym at the end of arm workout swollen. An hour or two later I'm back to myself and don't have any residual soreness like I often do on leg day or in my triceps.
Part of me thinks I'm just not pushing hard enough, so I'm focusing on technique and doing things like rest-pause sets, next week I start doing drop sets, and I've been focusing a lot on the negative part of the movement more than I typically do. Maybe that will help, maybe it won't.
I'm now being followed on twitter by "Gentleman's Handbook" (@ImRealGentleman) their tweets are pretty heterocentric and a bit sexist. Now, keep in mind the twitter handle I'm using is "JayKingOfGay".
I find the whole concept of "gentleman" to be absurd, unnecessary, and sexist. I would think my tweets tend to reflect that. Perhaps not.
"It doesn’t bother me what James Dobson or Robert George thinks, because I am 100% sure that after I die, no one is going to ask me why I didn’t hate more people."
Earrings, Necklaces, rings, tote bags, buttons, pins, hats, t-shirts, jackets, bumper stickers, decals, tattoos, lawn ornaments and more with crosses, Jesus, Mary, and various other saints. I see this stuff on the daily.
At least once a month someone on my train home starts preaching "the good news" to the mild annoyance of the rest of the passengers, or tries to engage people in discussions about how much Jesus loves them.
You're still wrong but I doubt you'll admit it so I'll just go ahead and block you.
Okay folks, hoping one of your muscleheads or exercise fanatics can help me out.
I'm having some forearm pain on my right forearm (little bit onto the bicep) on my right arm. my elbow joint itself is fine.
It's the muscle that's close to the elbow joint. If I were to hold my hand out, palm up it's the same side as my thumb. When I do wide grip ez bar curls, machine preacher curls and ESPECIALLY when I do hammer curls.
Oddly enough, I have zero pain when I do forearm exercises. I do wrist curls, palms up and palms down without any pain or discomfort whatsoever. They're at the very end of my arm workout and I never have any pain.
Any thoughts? I don't think it's tendonitis or tennis elbow as all the diagrams I see point to areas where I have no pain or problems.
I have a less common take on social networking. I'm not interested in becoming famous for my Google+ posts, nor do I care to spread my "influence" far and wide.
Reasons I won't be circling you back:
-You're using an obviously fictitious name. While Google+ no longer requires real names, I prefer them. I find there's less trolling and drama when people don't get to hide behind a fake name.
-You're posting NSFW content publicly. I am often in places where others can see my screen, including work, and I don't want to have explain genitals to coworkers, bosses, or angry parents. Part of my job involves social media.
-You have no posts visible to me or no posts and no pictures. How am I to get a sense of who you are and what you're about if you don't have any posts?
-You've got hundreds or thousands of people circled. I value quality over quantity. I sincerely doubt you have the time to keep up with posts from hundreds/thousands of people, which means it's also unlikely that you will have the time to get to know me in any significant way. There's nothing wrong with circling hundreds of people, that's just not how I network.
-You haven't posted anything I can see in several weeks/months.
