Dare I Say It... (Closed Captions!) I Just Did.

So lately I’ve been seeing a lot of hate or at least negativity towards Captioned videos of any sort. People making posts about “How annoying CC is” “Why does CC exist?” and other remarks. 

This is coming from me, a Deafblind Individual who NEEDS CC to understand speech/video/audio of any sort. This also is on behalf of the Deaf/HOH/ADP/Anyone who needs CC.

You abled, privileged, hearing people have the glorious opportunity, chance of a life time, to watch ANYTHING you want without problems. Without discrimination. Without complaints. Without threats. Without negativity thrown at you. YOU get the privilege of being able to enjoy anything/everything that has spoken language to it.
Us, d/Deaf/HoH/APD/Second Language Need closed captions (CC). NEED accommodation.

Imagine (and I do ask you to TRY IT OUT) you have the TV on mute. Can you understand anything? I doubt it, there’s no sound! You’re trying to make out the characters reactions, movements, behaviour but it’s not working because you can’t tell what’s being said. Then you put CC/Subtitles on. At last! You can FINALLY understand the spoken language! You understand what’s happening!! You’re not lost and tired from trying to play charades. Now you can enjoy the show without complaints!

Another Try It Out put earplugs in and walk around all day or at least a few hours with those earplugs. Can you understand speech? Can you figure out where things are coming from? No? Everything is muffled sounding yes? As if you’re in a tunnel? 

This is how many d/Deaf/HoH/APD people feel each and every single day Speech is muffled sounding, distorted, garble nonsense. It’s tiring to constantly lipread (Which isn’t 30% accurate for English language seen on lips), trying to understand what someone is saying when it’s all so muffled!

Now, you go to entirely new country, with only said language as your SECOND language which you aren’t entirely fluent in yet. Even if you are… understanding the second language is fairly hard yes? Everything all muffled and “Blah blah blah” sounding correct? Putting subtitles on can make a HUGE difference! Yes the country’s language can be spoken, but having YOUR language on subtitles can be beneficial for you. You aren’t lost. You aren’t confused. You understand what everyone is laughing about in the movie because you have subtitles!

Gifs/Moving images: people uploads these on tumblr, facebook, other media sites. They have captions on them because people wouldn’t know what is being said. Imagine the subtitles/captions, gone. I doubt you’d have any idea what is happening and what particular scene the gif/moving image is from. Here’s the thing, people don’t complain about gifsets being made that have subtitles/closed captions on it so EVERYONE can see whats happening….  Yet people complain that there’s (OMG!) Subtitles/Captions on VIDEOS?!?! A TEXT POST UNDERNEATH A VIDEO THAT HAS (Dare I say it?) CAPTIONS! HOW UNCALLED FOR! 

Did you know that Captions can be extremely useful? 
Check these links out explaining why.

Closed Captions (CC)

rikkipoynter did a video on WHY CC is important 

tyleroakley followed up with that and gave reasons why CC is important (Hear Me Out)

paulidin did a video on why Access Matters! Closed Captions

my good friend timelordonbakerstreet shows you HOW to CC your videos

captioned-vines, captioningresource, waitwhatdidtheysay and others do a wonderful job captioning the videos. 

Captions are IMPORTANT. If you add captions, you get more respect. When you add captions you don’t get complaints, you get more views/followers/people who will enjoy your videos. When you add captions you can enjoy watching shows on mute while at work, in line, anywhere. 

If you don’t like Captions… there’s one Simple Thing To Do TURN THEM OFF WHEN PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM… Leave. Don’t make a HUGE DEAL!1!111 about CC. If the CC benefit the person, then be accommodative, not an asshole, and let the CC be on. Would you rather us ask you 20 questions in 5 minutes asking “What they say? What? Whats so funny? Huh? I missed that! Again?” Doubt it. So put CC on. It isn’t that difficult.

When you see transcript/cc underneath a video…. Please DO NOT delete the CC. All you need to do is go to SOURCE’s page and Reblog from there. It isn’t that difficult. 

JUST BE RESPECTFUL because you won’t know who you have hurt/make someone feel upset. You’re unintentionally discriminating and be disrespectful to those who need CC/subtitles.

Urban jungle needs urban camo!

_en I’m finding my way to camo patterns slowly but these got me from the first moment I saw them. The true is I was ordering these puppies way before there was a clear image how they will look or be :) I found out few months later that my selection was right and I was thrilled! Btw. we are talking about Asics Tiger Gel Lyte 3 from Okayama Denim pack. They are definitely made using premium leathers complemented with that denim camo on the upper and many beautiful details which you will see after a little while. As you can see on the detailed pics it’s not only printed but made from different denim threads and it looks really cool. But let’s focus on few things that might surprise you if you are planning to get your first Gel Lyte 3′s. First thing is the sizing. It’s shifted and they got their own sizing table (different than Gel Saga or other models from Asics Tiger). The main thing is that you need to look at the US sizing and in comparison to for example Nike’s they are almost true to size or maybe half size up (for me it’s US11 (EUR45) in Nikes and US11 (EUR44) in Gel Lyte 3′s). And if you want to be safe, just go half size up and you’re safe :) Second thing that might be surprising is the split tongue. It’s cool for putting the shoes on (especialy for us people with higher instep) but for someone it might look weird and unusual. And that’s what I like about them :) Third thing is the gel cushioning used on soles. If you had Asics on your feet before you know what I’m talking about and if you didn’t you will find out when you put it on. It’s comfy. Very very comfortable indeed! It’s different than from other brands and I really like to wear ‘em to all-day-shoes-of-feet situations and I wear them really often. You can match them well (also with my beloved G-Shocks as you can tell :D) because of the easy colorway, you can walk in them all day long and at the and your feet will thank you :) So if you were scared of Asics and you remember them like the “cheap shoes” from you local Vietnamese dealer on the marketplace it’s time to get brave and experience something new! //kovkou

_sk Poslednou dobou sa snažím nachádzať si cestu ku kamuflážovým vzorom ale tento kúsok ma dostal bez kompromisov na prvú šupu. Pravda je taká, že som tieto tenisky objednával relatívne na slepo ešte dávno predtým ako boli známe reálne fotky alebo ich podoba a o to viac ma prekvapili keď som ich konečne uvidel! Hneď som vedel, že moja volba bola správna :) Btw. hovoríme o Asics Tiger Gel Lyte 3 z Okayama Denim packu. Sú vyrobené z veľmi prémiových koží doplnené o skvelú kamoflážovú cenimovú vrchnú časť, ktorá nie je len printová ale vidno na nej spojenie rôznych vlákien denimu doplnená o skvelé detaily, ktoré sa vám ukážu až po bližšiom preskúmaní :) Ale zamerajme sa na veci, ktoré by vás mohli pri týchto teniskách prekvapiť ak ste ich predtým nemali v ruke alebo neobúvali. Prvou zaujímavosťou je veľkostná tabuľka. Gel Lyte trojky majú posunutú veľkostnú tabuľku a je úplne iná ako pri ostatných teniskách Asics. Principiálne sa pri kúpe treba riadiť podľa vašej US veľkosti pretože EUR sú úplne iné (napr. u Nike nosím US11 čo je EUR45, ale pri Gel Lyteoch som si bral US11 čo je ale v EUR uvedené ako 44 a pasujú veľmi podobne takže odporúčam riadiť sa podľa US číslovania). V prípade, že sa vám to nebude pozdávať zoberte o pol čísla väčšie a bude to úplne v pohode (asi aj ja sám by som zniesol pokojne US11.5 a bolo by to možno aj lepsie lebo v 11nástkach vyzerajú moje nohy ako detské :D ..). Druhým prekvapením by mohol byť rozdelený jazyk. Resp. žiadny jazyk. Je to typický prvok Gel Lyte 3jek a pri obúvaní je super, pretože idú na nohu skoro samé :) V konečnom dôsledku to môže vyzerať pre niekoho zvláštne, ale to je práve to čo ma na týchto teniskách baví. Po tretie nám ostáva už len skvelá gelová podrážka, ktorú Asics už roky používa vo svojich behom-inšpirovaných tenisiek. Je pohodlná. Ale akože mega ultra pohodlná! Rád ich nosím na celodenné “vychádzky” z domu a keď sa večer vraciam, moje nohy mi za to ďakujú :) Samozrejme som si ich obľúbil natoľko, že ma v nich uvidíte relatívne často aj vďaka ich dobrému farebnému prevedeniu, ktoré sa dá dobre kombinovať (napr. aj s mojimi obľúbenými G-Shockmi ako môžte vidieť :D). Tak teda ak ste sa doteraz báli Asicsov a máte zafixované, že sú to tie “lacné topánky” z tržnice od lokálneho Vietnamského dílera, opak je pravdou. Odporúčam nabrať odvahu a vyskúšať v živote zase niečo nové! //kovkou

Não é que eu seja amarga ou sem educação, é que me sinto mal de sempre quebrar a cara e das coisas nunca darem certo pra mim. Nunca vou encontrar alguém que me olhe completamente apaixonado, que não se enjoe de mim e que apesar de tudo não desista como todos os outros já desistiram. Queria que as coisas começassem a dar certo, que as pessoas sentissem orgulho de mim. Queria ser o amor verdadeiro de alguém, que nos fins de semana tivesse alguém pra sair, mas não só nos fins de semana! Queria ser a alegria de alguém, que quando chegasse ser recebida com um beijo e um abraço. Gostaria de voltar a confiar nas pessoas e ter amigos de verdade, essa minha desconfiança atrapalha tudo

A Thoughtful Gesture Or A Deceptive Plan?

TAGGING → Quinn Fabray & Sam Evans
LOCATION → WMHS
TIME FRAME → Friday, November 21, 2014
GENERAL NOTES → Two-shot

The first thing Quinn did was google comic book stores. She’d never stepped foot in one before, but she would have to in order to buy Sam some comic books. Luckily, there was one two blocks from her house. She must have passed by Planet X numerous times before, but she’d never noticed the small establishment until now. The blonde headed inside, the sound of the bell over the door ringing in her ears as she did so. Instantly, she felt out of place. Everyone was staring at her. Maybe she should have gone home and changed first. She’d come straight from cheerleading practice.

Not bothering to browse, she headed over to the man behind the counter. She remained confident under his scrutinizing gaze. “Hello,” she greeted him with a warm smile. “I need to buy a few comic books for a friend, but I know nothing about them. Maybe you can help me select a few?” Quinn had no idea which comic books Sam already had in his collection. She could only hope that none of the ones she ended up buying for him would be duplicates. The man grunted as he stepped out from behind the counter, beckoning to her to follow him. Twenty minutes later, she left with several comic books in hand.

From there, Quinn headed straight to McKinley. She would put the comic books in Sam’s locker for him to find in the morning. With the comic books, she left him a note.

Thought you might enjoy these.

Quinn did not bother signing the note. He’d figure out that they were from her.

When you see it, you will .. bricks!

_en Today we got our hands on this awesome last quickstrike release from Nike. They are nothing else than Nike Air Trainer 1 QS with codename “Jerry Rice.” I really got in love with the Air Trainer silhouette in last few months and this one hit me especial with the story behind it :) But first thing first - the colorway is inspired by US football team San Francisco 49-ers and materials used on the red parts are similar to the brick texture and it feels really good. They look awesome no doubt but the better part is the story behind the mason’s trowel on the heel and brick print on the insoles. Long story short. There is a tale about legendary player Jerry Rice who asked his brothers to throw bricks at him to train harder and get better :) Or maybe they were throwing the bricks to shut him up .. who knows :) … Anyway if you like ‘em you should be fast! They’ll be gone quick and you can get your pair from tomorow at Footshop and if these stunning pics taken by our lovely Kix didn’t convinced you I’m not sure if something else will :)) //kovkou

_sk Dnes sa nám do rúk dostal tento parádny quickstrike model od Nike. Nie je to nič iné ako Nike Air Trainer 1 QS, ktoré dostali prívlastok “Jerry Rice.” Poslednou dobou som sa do tejto siluety naozaj zamiloval a pár ich pochopiteľne pribudlo aj v mojej zbierke, ale tento konkrétny release ma zasiahol najmä príbehom, ktorý sa za ním skrýva :) Ale poďme pekne po poriadku. Farebná schéma je inšpirovaná Americkým futbalovým tímom San Francisco 49-ers a materiály, ktoré sú použité v červených častiach pripomínajú na dotyk textúru tehly. O tom, že vyzerajú fantasticky, netreba pochybovať ale lepší je už spomenutý príbeh, ktorý sa ukrýva za murárskou lopatkou (a.k.a. keľňou) na päte a tehlovej potlače vložiek, ktoré sú vo vnútri tenisiek. Skúsim to ale skŕatiť aby som vás moc nenudil :) Existuje príbeh, ktorý hovorí o legendárnom hráčovi Jerrym Riceovi, ktorý pri tréningu požiadal svojich bratov aby naňho hádzali tehly namiesto lopty a on tak mohol trénovať tvrdšie a v hre podávať lepšie výkony :) Alebo možno naňho hádzali tie tehly len preto aby už bol konečne ticho .. kto vie :)) Každopádne ak sa vám tieto krásky páčia, neváhajte lebo pôjdu rýchlo preč! Svoj pár máte možnosť uloviť na Footshope od zajtra a ak sa vám nepáčia po týchto fantastických fotkách od našej milej Kix, tak potom už fakt neviem :) //kovkou
