a quick round up of shinee’s points per category for their “m!countdown” win! they took over big bang in every category minus sms and pre-voting. to point out, “m!countdown” is the most difficult music show to win on due to the areas of criteria being so spread out. the score was very close regardless and, if we want shinee to have a shot at another win on the show next week, we need to focus on every single area of criteria, but especially the two areas that we lost in this week. pre-voting for the show is also known as popularity score; the results are gathered through the global, japanese and korean online voting polls. sns, also known as social media score, is all about the official youtube mv score. both areas are worth 10% of the score percentage, rounding up to a grand total of 20% of the final score. pre-voting for this coming week of the show (which shinee could still very well take in another award on) will begin on friday, may 29th at 11am kst and end on monday, june first at 9am kst you can find the global voting site here and the japanese voting site here. you can find more information on how voting on both sites works via support shinee. as for mv views: yes, shinee has accumulated over four million on youtube and that is very good but those four million views were had last week so they count toward this week of music shows. it’s already almost friday in south korea and “view” has only brought up half a million views. shinee’s biggest competition on music shows next week is going to be kara and big bang (again): kara’s music video has already brought in 300k more views than shinee’s since it’s release at the start of the week and big bang’s has also brought in more. we have three more days for sure to raise the views, so let’s please to try and focus on getting a good million or more views before the week comes to an end! the video can be found here and a guide on how to increase views quickly can be found in the linked. these views will also help shinee on every other music show next week!

Hi Carrie. I think I'm asexual, but I'm not sure. I do experience sexual attraction, but it's always towards people that I have no chance of meeting. Actors, musicians, people online etc. I don't think I've ever experienced it towards people I've actually met, talked to or seen IRL. I can appreciate if people are handsome/beautiful, but I never think; I'd hit that. I'm confused. Would it be correct to call myself ace? I could really use your help. You always seem to find the right thing to say.

Hi anon! You can totally identify as asexual– it’s a spectrum, and everyone experiences it differently in a way that makes sense personally for them. If you feel little to no sexual attraction towards people, you can fall into the ace spectrum, even counting your attraction towards actors, etc. There’s even a specific sub-category called autochorissexuality, which I feel like you might be interested in learning about– there are a number of asexuals who do feel attraction, like you do, towards fictional characters, celebrities, people they wouldn’t neccesarily meet. More information on autochorissexuality here

The most important thing is what what you’re comfortable with identifying for yourself. Do you feel like asexual works for you? Or is gray-asexual more where you think you are? Or are you demisexual? Any and all of these are fine, and also changing your mind at any point is fine too.

Here are some more resources:

I hope this was helpful! Best of luck to you!  (◕‿◕✿) :*・゚☆

Where can I find the stuff you used for the hospital (in your last post) thanks in advance!

Sure!

The last one isn’t technically a hospital set, but still has a lotta really nice things in it that can be used in surgery rooms, labs, and exam rooms, and also has a realistic doctor’s stool. 

:)

Above is a preview of the new icons added here. Do not edit or claim as your own. This is for those who requested for kingsman, black widow, more steve and pietro, and wanda/elizabeth olsen. I’m working on the rest of the request batch. (please do not send in requests till I have finished the current request list.)

shinee will be performing on “m!countdown” tonight! the show, which airs on mnet, will begin at roughly 6pm kst (note: this sometimes varies depending on the show. shinee will, more than likely, be the final performer on the show but there’s always a chance that there will be behind the scenes clips of them or interviews with them before that point so tuning in for the entire broadcast would be a good idea if you can! it’s usually best to turn on the stream ten minutes before the scheduled time, to be safe.) they will be performing: their title track, “view”, and “재연 (an encore)”. for anyone not sure what the starting time would be in their time zone you can use this site to be sure! streams can be found here. (note: mnet streams the show directly from their official website for free (it’s one of the streams shared on the latter linked) but, in order to use it, you must either: a) register an account with mnet or b) use facebook to connect.)

So I went to the doctors today who told me I need to stay home sick for a week. Apparently, the idea of being away from work for a whole week really made me miss spreadsheets because I spent my newfound free time creating this master list of books I’ve read about Judaism so far.

I can’t say this is every book I’ve read since I have a pretty awful memory, but it’s all the ones I’ve taken pictures of and posted on my blog, currently have on my bookshelf, or were on the list I went to the beis din back in November. And even though this list has 50 or so odd books, don’t expect it to be a comprehensive list by any means. It’s hardly a beginner’s list

I’ve colour-coded the books based on level of difficulty in my personal opinion, as someone who’s been in the Jewish community for a year and a half with 1 year of that in a right-wing Orthodox community. I’d say all of the hashkafa books (there aren’t that many, though) reflect a right-wing perspective. Anyway, in terms of difficulty, I can’t say I’m the best judge since like I said I’ve been here for less than two years. What I might have labelled as difficult might be something someone else thinks is too easy to bother with.

If I am being honest, I probably rated them a bit more difficult than they actually are since I wrote this in mind of people who are coming to Judaism with absolutely no background as I did. And by “difficult”, I don’t always mean because they deal with halakha and you’re still learning the Jewish year. I mean difficult in that every other word is Yiddish or Hebrew (and not transliterated/vowelized) or that it’s talking about tznius beyond the idea of “make sure to cover XYZ.”

That being said, enjoy this relatively small list of books! If anyone has any comments or more questions please feel free to send them my way. I’ve also included the publisher not only because my beis din has asked me too (the real reason for this list is because it’s required documentation of my geirus; I’ll be sending them a non-colour-coded copy as well), but because I figured it’ll make it easier for you to find where to purchase the books from. Happy reading!

Note: some of the titles of the books will show up cut-off. If you have an account with Google, you should be able to edit the document and drag the “Title” column to see it in its entirety. If not, click on what you want to see and look in the bar above the A, B, C, etc. columns (or just copy what you want and paste it into Google to search it)

Legit’s Historical Fashion Masterpost

All right guys, I’ve decided to put together another masterpost for you - this time on historical fashion. This could get lengthy so… bear with me. (Forgive me also if some of the dates are a touch inaccurate - I’m not a historian and I’m going with what Google gives me.)

Super cool website alert

lingvo.info is a cool, free website all about European languages & linguistics in general.

There are four main sections to the website:

  • Lingvopedia for basic information about the 28 languages in Europe they focus on, like alphabet, history, phonetics, basic grammar, fun tongue twisters and sayings, etc.
  • Babylon for info on linguistic in general (as a prototumblinguist with barely any formal studies on linguistics, I’m eating this up)
  • Lingvopolis, which is like a searchable tumblr masterpost for language learning resources on the web
  • Geolingvo, which is a game you can play with some tumblr nerds all about langs and geography
  • There is also a section to download language lesson plans for teaching a couple languages!

I saw one of the people who develops this website at the Polyglot Gethering, and their team is working hard on it! It’s super, super cool, and I wish we could have a clone site for all the languages.

It’s also multilingual, so you can change the site language from English to 21 other languages.

a-force #1 (2015): “it’s this world where the marvel heroines are leaders in their own civilization. […] there are men—there are heroes there. you’ll see familiar faces and favorites, but the heroines are in charge, by majority. it’s just this is how their world evolved. they were competent. they were clever and they were the ones in charge because of their skills and they were the best fit for these roles and demands of their world.” (comixology)
