  1. Morning Ari. 😊💙
    Anyone needing a belly laugh watch this: on YouTube… BORIS BOP – Boris Johnson x Stormzy's Vossi Bop

  2. Well, i don‘t know who originally came up with the CONCEPT of mermaids, but the story „the little mermaid“ is from danish writer Hans Christian Andersen. They have a statue in Copenhagen and stuff. But since Disney already took a lot of liberties with the story (the little mermaid died in the original story), i don‘t get the fuss. Also I think, they found a fitting actress for the role. Her slightly tilted eyes remind me of some animated female fish I‘ve seen. I‘d say her face has a certain fishlike appearance, but I know that although I mean that complementary, it just sounds plain weird.

  3. That Gucci sweater looks perfect to wear in a freezing Northern winter. Just change the color for all of the knuckleheads.

  4. YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME – HOWZ THAT DRAGON ENERGY.
    nasty. Im just not impressed. Come on, we got people getting shot. This is just not cool.
