Aren’t we supposed to have another sneak peak of The Blood of Olympus? I think something like this was promised but I could be mistaken.
I’m pretty sure he said he wasn’t releasing any more sneak peeks other than the first chapter
Wait… the first chapter was already released?!
yes if you ordered the Staff of Serapis on ebook
There is supposed to be a sneak peek in percy jackson greek goods but i dont know if it is the same
We went to this burger place for lunch (turned out to be a drag bar which was shitty in other ways) but the walls were papered with rolling stones covers and it just really becomes obvious when you see lots of magazine covers next to each other that men are treated as people and women are treated as objects.

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…
I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.
The shade is real
i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.
The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.
Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends.
THAT LIP JUT JUST SLAYYYYS

#no but u don’t understand he had to do more than 800 auditions before he landed on his first role #he bartended for more than a decade #and not long after he started his acting career he suddenly got diagnosed with brain tumor #and then there’s the murder of his younger brother back in 2008 #any sane man would’ve given up #but he didn’t #there’s so much more to mark ruffalo than just fluffy curls and adorable face #he’s in a lot of interesting and amazing projects lately i’m genuinely chuffed for him #marko

HOO AUS: The characters as cast members of a famous tv series called "HEROES OF OLYMPUS", in which they do a lot of interviews, go to comic cons, post selfies and, of course, are asked dumb questions.
