Rosemary Clooney (born 23 May 1928 in Maysville, Kentucky, USA – 29 June 2002) was an American singer and actress.

Clooney’s first recordings, in May 1946, were for Columbia Records. She sang with Tony Pastor’s big band. Clooney continued working with the Pastor band until 1949, making her last recording with the band in May of that year and her first as a solo artist a month later, still for Columbia.

She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit Come On-a My House written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin and the Chipmunks), which was followed by other pop numbers such as “Botch-a-Me” (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), “Mambo Italiano”, “Tenderly”, “Half as Much”, “Hey There” and “This Ole House”, although she had success as a jazz vocalist. Clooney’s career languished in the 1960s, partly due to problems related to depression and drug addiction, but revived in 1977, when her White Christmas co-star Bing Crosby asked her to appear with him at a show marking his 50th anniversary in show business. She continued recording until her death in 2002. She was the aunt of Academy Award winning actor George Clooney; mother-in-law of singer Debby Boone; and sister to former television personality Nick Clooney. She was the ex-wife of Jose Ferrer; mother of actor Miguel Ferrer

Clooney was diagnosed with lung cancer at the end of 2001. Around this time, she gave her last concert, in Hawaii, backed by the Honolulu Symphony Pops; her last song was “God Bless America”.

oliverslewty  asked:

Jazz's special Operations agents meeting Star for the first time!! Either as his One or the go-to medic for SPECS! (She would be their go-to medic?? Right?? Since shes Jazz's One??)

Hmmmm buckle up imma get long again.

-Most of them have met or heard of Starwish prior to her being his Sparkmate. But about 70-80% of them didn’t really- pay her much attention beyond making a mental note that their boss was fond of her. But he’s fond of a lot of bots outside Spec Ops, so they don’t really- pay it too much mind? It’s not that they don’t care, because she’s nice and a good medic, but there are a lot of autobots out there and honestly most of the Special Ops are kinda … distant from the majority of the faction.

-Then she becomes his sparkmate in the most spectacularly unorthodox fashion and suddenly All Of Them Are Paying Attention. Who is this femme, what is she like? Obviously she’s their boss’s One and so they can’t and won’t lay a servo on her but is she a liability? Is she good for him? Will she take care of him and understand the truly dirty, horrible nature of their work? Will she distance herself from her own sparkmate if she does, thereby putting Jazz under even more stress and danger?

-Special Ops, being basically the Naruto ANBU of the Autobots but without the official ninja badges, immediately begin to investigate her with a lot more care and paranoia than before. Several, like Whitestrike, already have good opinions of her and are happy to share that opinion with the others, but you don’t get to be in Special Ops by taking people at their word, even comrades, so they begin to discreetly trail her and engineer encounters.

-Starwish startles all of them by telling her tenth “secretly Special Ops” patient that if they want to come in and talk to her that’s fine, but PLEASE stop breaking your own limbs and tearing up your own wiring and saying its a battle injury to serve as an alibi, self-harm in any capacity is Very Not Good and is also completely unnecessary. It’s also wasteful to use up medical supplies for alibis like this stop that pls and thank you.

-The Special Ops all collectively take a very long step back to reevaluate.

-Then they figure out that, oh yeah, she’s MASTER YOKETRON’S APPRENTICE. Of course she figured them out.

-They flip gears and immediately start doing the most unsubtle things ever. They’re like cats, pushing stuff of tables to see how the new person reacts, trying to see if they will drive her away just by being themselves. (Jazz watches from afar with an aura of Danger, because if they hurt or traumatize his sparkmate by going too far in their Testing he will Break Them All)

-Let it be known that Starwish was NEVER officially made the Special Ops go-to medic. She was never asked, never assigned, and it was never intentional. It just … happened as part of the Testing.

-They start coming in when they are genuinely injured, drag themselves to Iacon at all hours, leaking energon and sometimes covered in fluids or cradling broken limbs. Starwish drags herself out of her berth alongside her sparkmate and fixes them while Jazz gets the report (which mean Prowl has to sigh and reassign her maximum security clearance, but then this is Jazz’s sparkmate and he trusts her implicitly so what did he expect).

-This means that Starwish hears Everything. She hears about their missions, the energon they’ve spilled, the sabotage they’ve done, the casualties and brutal efficiencies they’ve had to do to survive and succeed. Being Special Ops is not being James Bond, it’s not glamorous or easy or kind. It’s stressful and dangerous and it breaks down their ability to trust anyone else in the field until its a fine, stubborn wire that only extends to those who they HAVE TO trust at the time and that alone. Jazz tries to keep Zipline and Fast Track away from the worst of the missions, keeps them in sabotage for a REASON no matter how dangerous because it’s the NICEST and least spark destroying of missions (not like infiltrating for months on end, laughing and joking with the enemy like you’re comrades only to watch them burn from an ambush you set up and kill them because they were on a bad watch you needed to get past, not like hiding-hiding-hiding until you can’t remember what its like to NOT)

-Starwish doesn’t pull away. She fixes, and listens, and moves slow but efficient and warns when she’s going to touch and refuses to let their paranoia keep her from her job “I am your medic” she says without words “You will trust me even if you trust no one else, because I am the only thing keeping you alive”.

-They “let” her see their bad habits, their vices, let her catch them sneaking into the medical bay to replace the painkillers they stole last metacycle rather than submit to a medic’s examination (a medic who would probably have them off duty for orns to recover from what is wrong with them, something they can’t allow because they are NEEDED and the medbay might as well be a prison).

-Starwish doesn’t report them to Prowl, or Optimus, or any of the higher ups that aren’t Jazz who understands intimately what his mechs and femmes are going through. What she DOES do is start partitioning out some of the painkillers from the rest of the storeroom, a little at a time so that it isn’t missed or detrimental to the rest of the war effort, sets it up in her new office so that they can come to her to get something to ease their aches without risk of being caught stealing from the war effort.

-The first time one of the agents crashes for a recharge in her office, sleeps through her medical scan and her careful un-denting of the armor pinching a diode in his back is something of an unspoken acceptance of her place in their hierarchy.

-The first time she tracks down a group of three that had been coming in more and more frequently for pain killers, taking on more and more missions despite their clear exhaustion, and they LISTEN to her when she insists they need a break, that they need to stop and even if they don’t stay in the medical bay, she WILL be checking on them and repairing them for the next orn WHICH THEY WILL SPEND OFF DUTY …

-That is when the Special Ops know that she is Theirs.

-As silent and unspoken and unacknowledged as so many things are in Special Ops, the awareness spreads through their ranks until it is unquestioned law. As Special Ops, even the Prime does not hold their complete loyalty (though he does hold a good deal of it). As Special Ops the only mech they ever answered unquestioningly to was Jazz, their boss, their comrade, their TEACHER in many cases, the best of them all who took on just as much of the burden if not more. For almost as long as the War has gone on, Jazz has been the only being to hold their complete obedience.

-Starwish. Their medic, their boss’s One, their little Cyber-Ninja apprentice who fights just as hard and doesn’t flinch from their fractured edges or their stories of death and betrayal and lies, is the second.

The background comes from here: The drawer is so generous, people can use it as long as we send her the links.

Of course, the terrible colors and other paintings belong to me… Please protect your eyes!!!

Besides, there are many original characters. Forgive me if you don’t like them…

Mirage of Tainborough.

Usually, he is accustomed to hide his wings.

Circle1 : (original character)Quark Hippogriff Pangur Ban. The name comes from the movie 《The Secret of Kells》. I really love that white cat, so when I create this white Hippogriff, I give her the same name.

The triplets found her When she still was an egg. They raised this baby without telling their parents. When they grew up, they finally realized that kids can keep no secrets from parents. It’s seems that papa and mama always know everything.

Circle 2: Little TC with rabbit toy

Circle 3: The grown Thundercracker

Circle 4: (original character) Alidade, a little maid of Tainborough manor. As the functionism said, she born to become a servant, but she sniffed at those silly theories and aimed to be a doctor. Mirage was glad to see that, so he allowed her to go to the noble’s library and studied by herself as much as she liked.

As a maid, she was vivacious and naughty, and didn’t care about unnecessary formalities at all. However, she did her job perfectly.

Circle 5: (original character) Ceorgeman, the old butler of Tainborough manor. He should have been a spy who kept watch on this young rebel. But a few days later, he was totally impressed by his new master’s enthusiasm and high ideals.

What he cared about most is the rules. He always wondered if he should expel Alidade or give her a pay raise. Who can believe that they will get married 1 millions later.

Circle 6: Orion Pax the librarian.

Circle 7: Optimus prime.

Circle 8: Jazz

Circle 9: Prowl

Circle 10: Hound

Circle 11: Cliffjumper, with a pair of branches in his hair.

Circle 12: Bumblebee

Circle 13: (original character) Illusion, Mirage’s theoretical fiancé. He should have been a traditional bad cousin, just like other stories. But at last he became a comedian. Every time he appeared, he either will be played pranks by Alidade and other TF in Tainborough, or be beated down by Mirage because of harassment and molestation.

Circle 14: (original character)Xeon, the elder of Mirage’s family. He was the villain in the early plot (yes, this stupid story also has villains).

In his opinions, physical abuse was a vulgar interest. The most enjoyable thing for him was seeing the look of despair on Mirage and other noble rebels’ faces, when they sincerely committed to reform but failed over and over again.

Circle 15:(original character) Electronic cows. The figure comes from the movie 《Laputa: Castle in the Sky》.

They eat soft golden glass or other treated scrap iron, and product highly purified energy milk. Before the Cybertronian war, they were the mainstay of Tainborough’s economy.

I spent the weekend in a different prefecture for a jazz concert. There were bands from a handful of schools performing there and I got to be a part of it. The concert hall that we were performing in seated 1500 and the event was completely sold out. I only sang for one song, but it’s still crazy that I got to sing for an audience that big and that I didn’t mess up. Polkadots and Moonbeams will be in my heart forever.

/lsat prep

I’m not proud of the fact that I’ve gotten inconsistent with my LSAT prep. Diligence is key! I know this! I’m trying to work it back into my everyday routine. Today I started by reviewing my missed questions book and reworking them with detailed notes. I can’t just be getting questions right or wrong, I need to know why I got the score I did so that I can improve further. 

/class work

Got through my short reading for my conlaw class. Since it’s an introductory course, we aren’t reading actual case books. I’m trying my best to make a proper outline and case briefs as we go so that I won’t be overwhelmed at the end of the term. I don’t know if I’m doing them right though since I have no idea how to actually write a good case brief.

Analyzed my first ever Dickinson poem and I can already tell that my American Poetry class is going to be a rough ride. The OED is an absolute godsend for reading a poet with such a big vocabulary. I still wound up pretty confused in the end so I still need to polish my poetic analysis skills.

have you ever thought about wanting to listen to music with someone? but not like “let’s listen to some random chill playlist” but just,,, just listen to soft jazz or some sweet, slow nostalgic songs with someone and lay on a ground in your room and then share opinions about them, talk about things you would never talk about out loud never again. wouldn’t that be a wonderful feeling?
