Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH OF ‘THE IMITATION GAME’
When prepping for the lead role in the film, Cumberbatch spoke to one of Alan Turig’s nieces to learn more about his character. “She said that he was an exceptional person to be around as a child,” Cumberbatch says. “He did fun tricks to make them laugh, like playing chess with his back turned to the board.” (x)

Somebody probably has and that’s why it caught my eye. Regardless: dying.

The story of how Alan Turing and the Bletchley boffins defeated the Enigma machine is one of the most stirring of the Second World War; the British David conquering the Nazi Goliath by virtue of superior mathematics and intellectual daring.
The Imitation Game is a polished, well-paced account of these code-breakers that broadens the scope to encompass an exploration of Turing’s outcast status in a society wary of his genius and unprepared to accept his homosexuality. It may have an old-fashioned sweep and a cautious approach to some of the darker elements of Turing’s life, but the sheer emotional force of the piece and the virtuosity of Benedict Cumberbatch's central performance make it hard to resist.
Based on Andrew Hodges’ biography Alan Turing: The Enigma and marking the English-language debut of Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters), The Imitation Game begins with Turing’s arrest in 1951 on charges of ‘gross indecency’. Flashbacks to his schooldays and his years at Bletchley Park paint a touching account of a man with few intellectual equals and even fewer social graces.
Turing alienates his colleagues, exasperates his military masters (embodied by a splendidly starchy Charles Dance) and seems blithely unaware of the impact his blunt candour has on those around him. His rational mind also makes him blind to the sexism of his era as he becomes a fond champion of Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley in Celia Johnson mode), an equally formidable intellect with the disadvantage of being a mere gel.
The Imitation Game is a triumphant slice of British heritage drama boasting thoroughly engrossing cloak-and-dagger intrigue, as brilliant brains battle impossible odds to save millions of lives. And Cumberbatch’s flawless, touching portrayal of a beautiful mind and a tortured man pushes it into the arena of 2014 Oscar contenders.
The University Fandom Project was started to try and help new students at university find their first friends. However corny it might sound, let’s face it - we’re all in fandoms and a lot of us are pretty introverted. Some of us just love to gush about our fandoms but how exactly do you find the people to gush with when it’s not exactly a great conversation starter?
What the University Fandom Project hopes to achieve is this: to help you find people that you share a common interest with, to help people settle into university life by having their online support system in the flesh with them, and just to have a friend there for you. By submitting your name, you could help someone else find their feet in one of the most nerve-wracking times of their lives so if you have the time to help out or if you’re looking for a friendly face yourself, just drop by to the askbox and hopefully someone will be in contact soon! If you’re not in university, please help signal boost this post and the blog just to make people who are in university aware of it!
