Many derby girls find they are playing a sport for the first time in their lives. They never got all that excited about going to the gym, had parents who made them choose academics over athletics back in school or simply “hated exercise.” These are the same girls who are now willingly spending hours upon hours a day, sometimes six days a week, training their bodies. Not because they want to fit into some killer bikini, but because they want to win.
Now, if that’s not girl power, I don’t know what is.
You know what else is appealing about roller derby? You get to fly and you get to shove people and you get to feel pain. It’s gotta be the fastest contact sport. That contact would be awesome. To get out your anger and feel connected at the same time. I wish wish wish I could skate better.
I feel that I should prepare everyone now because as soon as I get raws of Brotherhood I am making a Roy/Riza vid to this. A decision made a week ago when I was left to my own devices for FAR TOO LONG.
I’m going to pretend it’s ironic. But you know me better than that.
FOR FUCKING EVER’S GONNA START TONIGHT.
brb finding the Youtube video where Michael Johns sang this with The Dan Band. I FUCKING NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER.
uhhhh so this makes two times I’ve reblogged something involving this song tonight and I don’t even care.
Rawles, I support this vid’s existence SO FUCKING MUCH.
(Roy Mustang’s iPod is full of ABBA and Bonnie Tyler.)
I just wrote this. It’s about a stray cat I found and am now desperately trying to care for, heal, and get to an adoptive home, except, problem, I am a little bit of the broke. Please help, if you can. I would appreciate it more than words can possibly say.
Autoreblog for good cause/Shae being excellent people.
Enough To Go By (Live) - Vienna Teng and her adorable band
I’ve built a lot of castles I’ve built a lot of blazing speed-of-light machines But it doesn’t matter, you know They all crumble in the winds of change
So I turned back to breathing I learned a few good reasons to cry And I finally called home Praying you weren’t out of range
One of my favorite versions of my favorite song. I’m constantly astounded by how much I like this song? Like, obviously I chose a screenname after it and everything, but it makes me so joyful. It’s all about coming back home to someone who loves you and taking care of each other and second chances and being happy! With nerdy secret references to Vienna’s programming career! I just listened to it twice in a row, and I NEVER do that with songs.
Sometimes I think maybe my favorite song should be something ~*~deeper~*~ or more meaningful, and then I am like: this song is plenty meaningful, so shut up your face, lady, and listen to it for the millionth time.
