New Video! Today I made Tiramisu in celebration of unlocking this recipe in the game Harvest Moon!

If there’s an unmarried woman over 30 in the cast of a Disney movie, you can more or less bet that she’s the villain – an evil sorceress, like in Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid, an evil stepmother, like in Cinderella, or both, like in Snow White. Left unmarried and unfulfilled, they spend their free time learning witchcraft and scheming against pretty teenage women; you know, the ones who still have a chance at happiness.

AGFSC’s Conspiracy Corner: Higher Beings??!??!

So, parts of this may or may not have been debunked by the “A Tale of Two Stans” promo, but I’ll be darned if I don’t get this idea out.

Basically, I theorize that there’s a race of all-knowing beings hailing from another dimension, or space, or something. I dunno. I’m fuzzy on the details.

They’re connected to the UFO-shaped hole in the Gravity Falls cliffs, the “something strange” that’s buried under the town, and the six-fingered hand symbol on the Cipher Wheel.

At one point, Bill Cipher was among this race’s ranks, but it was decided that he was too unstable to have such all-knowing powers, and was demoted to the mindscape, where he isn’t quite omnipotent, but he still knows LOTS OF THINGS.

Angling for a promotion,” Bill scoured the multiverse for wherever the other beings had dumped his extra powers, which just happened to be the Author.

Now, considering the Author’s had six fingers since childhood, this part’s shaky, but I suspect that his extra digits are the result of Bill’s former extra powers being transported to him. The powers also gave him that little spark of inspiration to explore the paranormal.

Upon finding the Author, Bill came to him in his dreams and commissioned him to build the portal, promising that it would create knowledge and help all mankind.

Somewhere down the line, the Author realized that Bill had ulterior motives and couldn’t be trusted.

In order to stop Bill from re-gaining his power, the Author had to do something, hiding his journals, yadda yadda yadda, that eventually led to him disappearing into the portal.

Well, that’s my lil’ ol’ theory! A lot of parts are easily debunked, but I do think at least part of this will be involved in the story in some way.

True love, like any other strong and addicting drug, is boring — once the tale of encounter and discovery is told, kisses quickly grow stale and caresses tiresome… except, of course, to those who share the kisses, who give and take the caresses while every sound and color of the world seems to deepen and brighten around them. As with any other strong drug, true first love is really only interesting to those who have become its prisoners.
And, as is true of any other strong and addicting drug, true first love is dangerous.”

Pink Tax: A Cautionary Tale

It’s just another day. I walk past a drugstore and realize that I need some shaving cream, so I decide to take a look. I finally find the shaving products aisle. God, why are all these creams so expensive? They’re scented and all, but that’s not really worth it. Oh, there’s a store-brand one for men. It’s more than half the price of the women’s product. I guess I’ll buy it then, can’t be that bad.

Evening of the same day. I take a shower and start applying my new shaving cream. Suddenly, it starts to burn. Bad. Really bad. I scream for what seems like an hour. I pass out. I wake up again. I look at my leg. The word “PATRIARCHY” is carved into my flesh.

Never try to beat the pink tax. They will know. The patriarchy will find out and it will punish you. 

Stay safe, girls. Stay safe.
