Taliban Attack in Pakistan Prompts Cross-Border Solidarity From India

Arjay:

Sad day.

Amid the horrific massacre at an army-run school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar on Tuesday that resulted in over 140 deaths, mostly of children under the age of 16, the overwhelming support from regional rival India was a silver lining that has briefly lifted spirits.

The two countries generally don’t see eye to eye and have had a bilateral relationship that can be described as fractious at best. But in the aftermath of the Pakistani Taliban’s brutal attack, military posturing and border skirmishes were briefly set aside as India mourned with its neighbor.

Indian news channel NDTV reported that schools across India observed a two-minute silence on Wednesday, expressing solidarity with the victims of the attack. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who condemned the attack on Twitter soon after the news broke and later telephoned his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, also led the Indian Parliament in marking the incident.

This is Daniel Radcliffe’s Least Favorite Harry Potter Movie

Arjay:

To die hard fanatics of Daniel.

Daniel Radcliffe revealed in a recent interview that there’s one film in the Harry Potter franchise that really makes him cringe: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

“I’m just not very good in it,” he told the Daily Mail of the sixth movie in the series. “I hate it.”

While most actors honed their craft in classes and high school plays, Radcliffe’s development was broadcast to the millions who watched the series.

“My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across,” he said.

And his personal best in his view? The fifth—Order of the Phoenix—“because I can see progression.”

While Radcliffe didn’t love his performance, it certainly didn’t deter fans. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Princegrossed $301 million domestic and almost a billion worldwide.

This Is Why “Follow Your Passion” Is Terrible Advice

Arjay:

I kinda agree with this.

Should you leave something you have worked so hard for to “follow your passion”?

And are there enough resources out there to actually help you out? I mean ACTUALLY help you?

I think if we can have a talking Raccoon, a giant tree man, and a guy who hangs out with ants coming to the big screen for Marvel, it’s time we start to look towards some of the odder corners of their history for some fresh characters. That’s where Squirrel Girl comes in, the latest name to be thrown around via trademark by Marvel for future use in their massive movie initiative.

If you aren’t familiar with this fan favorite, you might want to head over to Wikipedia for a refresher. Most know that she’s a member of the Great Lakes Avengers and quite the formidable opponent, but there’s more to explore there. From Bleeding Cool:

Created by Spider-Man co-creator, Steve Ditko, she has becme a fan favourite of later after being championed by Dan Slott – and then kidnapped by Brian Bendis as an…
