Gaslighting is active manipulation to make someone question their sanity, memory, or perception of reality. It’s not lying, remembering something differently, or disagreeing with someone.
cecil gershwin palmer is the most character ever
how old is he? no fucking clue. what does he look like? he doesnt know. he fucks every scientist he comes across. nobody knows what he’s capable of. his mom told him he was going to die and then immediately dipped for the rest of his life. his dad is a tree probably. his sister is completely normal. he regularly gets displaced into random realities and just rolls with it. he might be immortal. he’s afraid of mirrors. he’s gay. he’s even jewish.
I had an idea for another dive into Loboto’s psyche where Raz gets to interact with a very repressed but very core fragment of the mad dentist’s mind and they get to spend some time parsing some trauma together and it’s helpful for both of them Also Cal just needs a friend so bad wehhh
Today I learned
Free Audiobooks and Ebooks on OVERDRIVE.
Free Graphic Novels (DC, Marvel, Image, etc), Music, TV shows, and music on HOOPLA.
Free music that you can KEEP on FREEGAL
You are PAYING for all this with your tax money - USE THEM. Most likely systems will have all 3 or 2 out of 3, so if you aren’t sure call your local library’s reference/information desk and how you can get set-up or started.
Hey, highkey from a library worker:
Overdrive has a new mobile app called LIBBY I find it easier to use. It’s the same content as Overdrive just better for mobile. Overdrive and Libby both let you send items to your kindle as well.
Can confirm Overdrive is amazing.
I work in the largest library system in my state (17 branches in total).
I use it not only for ebooks, but movies as well.
Other FREE resources to check with your library for are:
- Freegal Music (download and keep music, including current music)
- Hoopla Digital (borrow ebooks, e-audiobooks, e-graphic novels, stream movies)
- Kanopy (stream movies; also available on Roku!)
- Axis360 (usually hot or just released ebooks)
If you don’t have a library card…
If someone says libraries are a thing of the past…
BOOP THEM IN THE NOSE WITH YOUR KINDLE!
Don’t discount libraries as “quiet” places.
THEY ARE ALIVE!!!
THEY ARE LOUD!!!
THEY ARE YOUR DOORWAYS TO KNOWLEDGE!!
finished the AMV i was working on! this was a beast to edit but i learned a bunch of new tricks while making it and i'm really happy with how it turned out :)
i recorded all the footage myself in OBS and put the whole thing together in Sony Vegas! (the cutscenes are all in-engine so there is a sad handbag in one of the clips. see if you can spot it lol)
