anonymous asked:

can someone explain why ppl say sm hates sj? isn't leeteuk like lee soo mans prodigal son and didn't kyu say he's the only thing that makes sm ceo smile these days? why do elf think that did I miss something?

I seriously don’t know what make you think that ‘leeteuk’s like lee soo man’s prodigal son’ but anyway, from the start super junior was neglected by the company, as lsm said: “after tvxq formation, the members that weren’t chosen to be a part of the team were on the verge of disintegration. But because we had already contracted with them, we had to take responsibility. One of the teams was Super Junior, a group we raised to excel in music and variety shows. In order to survive, they had to cry tears of bleed through their efforts. We felt sorry for them, which is why we helped.”  Basically they debuted suju because they had to and after that the company was like ‘survive if you can otherwise we gonna replace you with someone new anyway’ and suju survived even when they had to work 100 times harder than others.

SM never really put much efforts in promoting them and super junior/elf have often been mistreated by SM [you can read about it here (1,2,3,4,5,6)] also, as heechul said: “I sometimes mention how we’ve been ranking first in Taiwan for 38 weeks and how Bonamana has been topping for 18 weeks and stuff like that when talking to people in our company and ask why they don’t make articles for us. I asked them to put out a few headlines like other companies do so that people just don’t think we’re doing nothing. When I say things like that, however, they’ll say back, ‘It’s because we think that it’s definite that Super Junior achieves those things. I don’t think it’s necessary to make a big deal out of things like that.’ So I’ll always just say back, ‘Yeah, you’re all talk.’” This just shows that SM don’t promote suju and they don’t care about them at all. That’s prolly the reason why, in Korea, many people don’t even know about super junior’s success and achievements. SM know that ELF will still support super junior even when they won’t put any efforts in promoting them, so they aren’t doing anything at all for them, which is just sad.

and to summarize the statement ‘sm hates super junior’ i’ll just leave this comment from an article here:

“So they made a group that they didn’t even think would do well out of pure sympathy. They made them sleep only 2-3 hours a day and travel to Malaysia, China, and Korea in just a day. They made someone who lost their father three weeks ago stand on stage and sing bright songs. They made an injured person that couldn’t even walk properly drag their legs on stage to sing. They made someone that had just come out of a car accident to go on TV. In such a tragic setting, you forced these kids to go on variety shows, perform at events, made them the talk of misunderstanding and criticism just so you could touch a bit of money. Even if they created laughter on variety shows, worked so hard to the point of fainting, they were only given several hundreds for their work – all members included.”

if sm don’t hate super junior then why would they treat super junior like this despite of them doing so well and making most of sm’s money and all of that from a group that they debuted out of pity and with no expectations at all? If anything SM should be grateful to have super junior in their company and should really stop treating them so bad. Let’s just hope SM will finally get their shit together and better not mess their upcoming comeback as well :/

My email to Amazon regarding Sense8

If you’re anything like me you’re not ready to give up yet, one of the routes we have left is contacting other companies and asking them to consider a licensing deal with Netflix, all the ways to contact them are listed at theglobalcluster.tumblr.com/companies 

I personally think the best way to get anything out of this is by not spamming them and sending personal emails pointing out our different views on the issue, but a friend suggested i posted my email publicly anyway to help anyone who might a little bit lost in the ‘what to say’ department 

without further ado, my long ass email to netflix, for your inspiration:

Thursday, 12/10/2017 // 18.03

Ok guys, I came back home from uni half an hour ago. I commute (hopefully I won’t do that next month) for 3 hrs in total. I wake up at 6am and I get home by 6 pm, but on Wednesdays I come back by 10.45pm. My life sucks haha

Btw, these one and a half weeks of uni have been super stressful but also great, because I love every single course I’m attending; especially Literary Critic (the professor is so sexy haha). I have also almost completed all my Erasmus documents, attended a press conference and written an article about that. Guess I’ve been super productive…

Here you have some of the books I need to study for Literary Critic and my Contemporary Italian Literature notes.

Where Are You?

Genre: Angst

Idol: Shownu (Hyunwoo)

Request:  Hi~! Can I request a Shownu angst… Break up to make up? Thank you!

A/N: I got a little carried away with this one haha it might be a little too long! But anyway I hope you guys enjoyed this one!!


Your boyfriend was an idol and you didn’t mind it at all. You knew that there would be dating scandals and rumors, but you always brushed them aside. Hyunwoo always assured you that you were enough for him and that you didn’t need to worry. He was a loving boyfriend, making sure that you were always taken care of and that you were happy and such. He rarely got angry at you and when he did, he’d apologize even if it was your fault. Hyunwoo was a boyfriend that every girl dreamed of having.

You were startled as your phone buzzed, notifying that you’ve received a text message. You picked it up and read the message that came from Hyunwoo. ’Jagiya, I hope you’re not busy today! After work I’ll take you out and we can go to that special park that you like. Get ready at 8 okay? Love you so much~’ You smiled to yourself as you read the text out loud. You looked at the time and saw that it was only noon. You decided to make food for Hyunwoo to pass time.

8 hours later, you were all dressed and ready to go. Pulling out your phone, you sent a text to Hyunwoo. ‘Babe I’m all ready! Test me when you’re at the apartment, love you~<3’ You packed all the food into a bag along with two blankets. “Where is he?” You asked yourself. You spent the next couple minutes watching some repeat of a drama that was playing on the tv.
Pretty soon, you’d fallen asleep waiting for Hyunwoo. The door lock jiggled which caused to to wake and Hyunwoo walked through the door. You looked at the clocked which read 3:00AM. Hyunwoo completely walked past you and into the kitchen. “Yah, Hyunwoo-ah,” You called out, getting off of the couch. “Where were you?”

He ignored you as he got a glass of water from, the fridge. You followed him, “Babe I thought we were gonna go out today. Where were you?” You asked once again, starting to get slightly annoyed.

“Busy.” He responded with an annoyed tone and left you alone in the kitchen. “What’s his problem?” You mumbled to yourself.

“Hyunwoo!” You called out. “Can you answer my question please?” You were starting to get impatient. “Baby-”

Hyunwoo turned around abruptly. “Can you just leave me alone?” He snapped. “My head is pounding and frankly, you’re making it worse.”

You stared at him confused. “Excuse me?” You exasperated. “I was waiting for you since eight and you have the nerve to say that to me? Where the hell were you for the past eight hours?” Your voice was slightly raising now. 

“I told you I was busy!” He shouted, towering over you.

“Busy with what? What could you have possibly be busy with to forget me for eight hours?” You shouted back.

He ran a hand through his hair and sighed heavily. “Busy with something okay? Now can you just leave?”

“You think I’m just gonna leave you here? Hell, why didn’t you call or text me?” You scoffed.

“Just shut up already!” He yelled. “I was with Dasom.”

Your eyes went wide as your mouth dried up. You could feel your heart sink  to the bottom of your stomach. “W-what?” You whispered. “Why were you with Dasom?”

His face fell as he heard your voice falter and tears well up in your eyes. He opened his mouth to say something but nothing came out. “I get it.” You started. “I guess Dasom means more to you than I do. I hope you guys are happy together.” You felt a tear slip as you left the apartment.

“_____-ah wait.” He ran after you but was too late, you had already left. He sighed heavily and pulled his hair. “I was with dasom because I wanted to give you a ring.” He silently cried to himself, pulling out a little case that held a silver ring inside.

* * *

This just in, Monsta X’s leader, Shownu, has just been caught 3 weeks ago with their label mate Dasom from Sistar. It appears that these two had been out for hours and that-’ You switched off the TV, hearing enough. Hyunwoo always said to never believe those articles but this time it was different, this time it actually happened. “Stupid Hyunwoo.” You sobbed. You were staying with one of your friends for the time being and you were miserable. She’d try to cheer you up but it wouldn’t be any use. Hyunwoo on the other hand was taking it the same as you were. He’d been messing up the dances as well as messing up the lyrics. When they would get home, he would just stay in his room for the rest of the day.

You heard your phone ring and checked who it was. “Hyungwon?” You asked confused. You picked up the phone. “Hello?” But no answer came. Suddenly You heard a faint voice on the other line. “Hyung, why don’t you just tell her the truth?” It was Hyungwon’s voice, he must have butt dialed you.
Another voice spoke. It was Hyunwoo’s. “If I do she won’t answer me, there’s no point. This is just all my fault.”

A sigh was heard. “It doesn’t hurt to at least try. I mean she’s probably miserable right now, seeing all these news articles about it. Just tell _____ that you were with Dasom because you needed her help to choose a ring for her. ” You couldn’t believe your ears. Hyunwoo was with Dasom to get you a a ring.
“She won’t believe me even if I begged. Anyways I’m just gonna go for a walk.” You could hear him get up and a door close.

“There you go _____. He wasn’t cheating on you after all.” Hyungwon said to the phone. ’So he knew he called me.’ “Now go after him _____-ah!” He said and hung up. He was right. You got off the couch and told your friend that you’d be back. You made your way to Hyunwoo’s apartment in a hurry. You got a text from Hyungwon saying that he was at the park.

Hyunwoo walked around the the park about 2 times already. He sighed to himself as he pulled out the ring in his pocket. “Where are you?” He asked him self. He dropped the ring and turned around to make his way back home. “I’m right here.” To his surprise, he saw you standing there smiling with tears falling down your eyes. He looked down and let the tears slip out as well. He made his way back to you with one thought running through his head. ’Finally.

Went to finally see the movie today and I LOVED IT! 10/10!!!
Great movie with 3 great performances, specially from John Goodman! Loved it so much I had to draw a quick poster (above) for it. I’m even happier now I got to illustrate the article on Entertainment Weekly a couple weeks ago :)
Go see this movie if you haven’t yet.


anonymous asked:

Ok I’m surprised.. but not surprised at the same time. It wasn’t looking like lwymmd was going to get to number 1 last week lol

You mean radio airplay? Well actually even last week it had increase in radio airplay, which you can read in Billboard’s article from last week. I’ve seen couple of anons on other blogs talk about it falling in airplay and that’s just factually wrong. Also, I’m sure some people don’t quite understand how radio play works, so I would guess many were questioning why it wasn’t in top 3 sooner but if you look at the list for example “Slow Hands” got to number 1 last week and that song was released some time ago. So it takes time to build up radio play, hence the name “building charts”. I would guess it will soon hit number 1, we’ll see, so far so good. In the meantime, screw the numbers - let’s just enjoy the song  ;)

to all my fitness friends and junkies:

let’s clear up some of the bullshit that all those websites and magazines preach.
no, no and no. don’t be fooled by articles like that, i’ve been there, years ago i’ve believed in that bs.
but it’s not working that way. there’s 3 ways: cutting (losing body fat & unfortunately some muscle
Mass), bulking (gaining muscle mass & unfortunately some body fat) and maintaining (staying at the same weight with recomping your body).

please DON’T listen to that “eat chicken rice & broccoli” non sense out there. i did those mistakes and i learned from them - i wish I had learned earlier.

Hey! I started my fitness journey a day ago but when I come back home from working out I'm very tired and end up binging. Is there anything I can do? ( I work out 2h/ 5 days a week. Cardio and body weight. )Thanks!

You started working out a day ago and your goal is to workout 2 hrs a day 5 times a week.

That’s a good goal, but that’s a bit promising for a beginner. You should probably reduce, to 45-1h 3 times a week. And if you feel you can do more, increase your amount of workouts.

Regarding your junk food cravings, I recommend you to check this:



Today, on the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, why is it not a trending topic on Facebook while Justin Bieber, Ghostbusers, and Interpol are?

This article has powerful pictures of the events leading up to and surrounding the massacre: 

25 years ago today, “the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) violently cleared Beijing’s Tiananmen Square of protesters, ending a six-week demonstration that had called for democracy and widespread political reform. The protests began in April of 1989, gaining support as initial government reactions included concessions. Martial law was declared on May 20, troops were mobilized, and from the night of June 3 through the early morning of June 4, the PLA pushed into Tiananmen Square, crushing some protesters and firing on many others. The exact number killed may never be known, but estimates range from several hundred to several thousand.” - via The Atlantic

anonymous asked:

I have been puzzled why she made her rs with him so public recently with the trump/kushner connection looming, but making sure people know you had a bf for 4 yrs before u dump him sort of makes sense, bc face it a lot of people didn't know she had a bf. So close to tayv!n tho , I don't know. I suppose time is of the essence tho if she wants to cut that association with trump.

This seems like a puzzle, and the pieces are beginning to fit together too nicely for all of this to be a coincidence. 

See, I’m starting to think they had this plan made up at least 6 months ago, probably even more… From every front. Starting off with Taylor and Calvin specifically, I’m starting to think they weren’t meant to end in February like we initially thought at the time. I think they were dong what they did last fall… They cooled off because they had nothing to really promote , but once they did, they increased their stunting. They also needed to make sure everyone knew they made it to one year. But once the promo period for NR was over in March, and everyone knew they made it to one year? They started seeding the break up for 2 months. They increased before it ended. 

As for Karlie and Josh, I first want to talk about the lack of Josh’s presence on that NYE trip. They tagged him in one post (when they were heading home), but we never saw his face. He was not there. At the time, we all thought this was extremely weird considering they’ve gone on a trip every year for the past 3 years. Him being a no show is also why I think they’ve had this plan for at least 6 months. It was clearly an intentional move not to have Josh on that trip. Just like Taylor and Calvin did, Karlie and Josh cooled off right before they amped it up. Josh was basically non existent in January and February (as was Calvin). But right when Taylor started to seed her own break up, Karlie and Josh started increasing. The timing on all of this is again super intersting to me, especially now that it seems like Karlie is dropping Josh. Which, that might have something to do with the Trump association, but like I said, this plan seems to have been made up a long time ago. The way Karlie and Taylor are following the same pattern is what has me really looking back through the last 6 months. They both increased their own stunting before the “relationship” started to end… They even got papped mad/angry with their beards to help seed! 

Then you factor in how long Taylor has been planning this move back to New York, and things really start to click. Like I talked about in this post, the move back, renting the place in West Village, and the renovations have been in the works for months. So all of a sudden within 2-3 weeks we have one beard dropped, Taylor moves a  1/2 mile away from Karlie, and now there’s the potential for another beard to be dropped? It’s too perfect for this not to have been planned out long ago. 

Now, some of this depends on if Karlie really is getting rid of Josh. I personally think she is because if her team wanted those angry shots covered up, Daily Mail wouldn’t have mentioned it again in their last article on her. Especially since  that’s her team’s mouth piece. Only time will tell on this one. 

TL;DR - Nothing is a coincidence, and the girls seem to have a plan, one we are finally seeing. 

my theory on why all of these articles about the bump pic are circulating now, 3 weeks after it was initially posted:

i think it’s likely a way to distract from the christmas dinner table pic which showed her very much not 8.5 months pregnant belly. that photo was posted, if i’m not mistaken, on a facebook account of a family member. a briana account on ig stole it and posted it and tammi (b’s mom) liked the pic which is how it became seen by more people. my guess is that tammi didn’t really look too closely at it when she liked it.

it just seems odd that the bump pic in front of the window was posted 3 weeks ago and there were no articles about it and now every tabloid is posting it as if it was just posted using very similar language as if it’s coming from a press release. 

idk just seems like distraction techniques to me.

anonymous asked:

What do you think will happen next with this interminable stunt?

“Interminable”.  That’s the perfect word ;D

That’s an interesting question at the moment.  There are a couple different things going on.

1. The hiatus story.

The hiatus story came out on Sunday and The Sun and the UK press seemed determined to spin it as negatively as possible and sensationalize it as a band break up.  We heard nothing from the US press for hours, then we got an article from People and a few others.  

We didn’t hear from Billboard until the next day, and as expected, their take was much more level and pro-1D.  We also got the tweets from Niall, Louis, and Liam’s accounts towards the end of yesterday that seem to have been meant to discredit a lot of the break up stories.  Billboard reported on those almost immediately.

Then today we’re on stage 3 which seems to be a free for all in the press.  

  • The Sun is pushing solo Harry as hard as they can and of course a few other papers are reporting on that angle as well.  
  • Several papers, including some in the UK (although the more “respectable” ones), are reporting on the boys being overworked and burned out.  
  • There’s speculation about the other boys and where they’ll end up starting solo careers, but then the Irish Mirror has a quote from a rep that there’s no negotiations currently going on in that regard.  Of course this doesn’t mean they didn’t happen beforehand or won’t happen after, but still interesting.  
  • For some unknown reason The Sun has decided linking Irving Azoff to Harry, even just as an advisor, was a good idea.  There’s a full picture and everything.  Also, a lot of the UK press is adding Zayn back into the band to discuss the hiatus and the money they’ve made, etc.
  • Billboard, on the other hand, has sort of reversed gears from yesterday and is now fear mongering about how breaks often end in breakups.  They aren’t fear mongering as forcefully as the UK press, but it’s still there.

I’m thinking new team and old team must be cooperating to some extent since The Sun and Billboard seem to be carrying out the other’s goals a little bit. People aren’t staying on their established sides.

I’m also thinking this is what they’re going to use to push the album as hard as possible.  The rep who gave a quote to the Irish Mirror also talked about focusing on the album and the articles about Julian Bunetta’s input seem to be convincing people this album will be spectacular because of the impending break.

We’ll have to wait for things to settle with this to know more.

2. Zayn trends

Apparently there was a Zayn trend on Twitter a couple days ago and there was another one this morning.  I’m always suspicious of these because there doesn’t seem to be any strong reason for them.  Zayn has been MIA, there’s been no news, so why bring up a trend about missing him now?  5 months is a long time, but it’s not a usual anniversary like 1 month or 6 months or 1 year.

This is at least the 3rd set of these types of trends we’ve gotten.  I think they must be trying to maintain the fandom’s longing for him.  Even people who are strongly supporting OT4 and trying to forget about Zayn can’t deny that it’s not the same without him.  They’re trying to draw out those feelings and remind people of them before Zayn gets buried too far in fandom memory.  Or at least that’s what I assume.

There was at least one article about the trend today although it’s hard to tell if it was a fluke.  I need to check and see if there were more, but I don’t have time to do that at the moment.  If there are more articles, that almost certainly means they were planted trends.

Seeing a continuation of these trends can only be good news from where I’m standing.  If they want people to hope for Zayn to return, the only purpose that serves is to get people ready for him to return.  Every other part of the narrative is about how OT4 is doing okay and One Direction is an awesome band, so why remind people of his absence otherwise?

3. Azoff

  • We had an article in a trade paper, I can’t remember which off the top of my head, about Azoff possibly being connected to Harry in a management capacity in the future.  That was a week or two ago.  
  • Then about 2 days ago we had an article from Page Six claiming that Azoff is on the outs with Billboard, but this article is questionable because it’s a recycled story they inserted Azoff into quite forcefully.  
  • There were a handful of articles about Harry and a girl called Dylan Penn that he was supposed to have met through Jeff Azoff last week.  
  • And now we have Azoff mentioned in relation to Harry in The Sun.  This is the most I’ve seen them linked in a long time.  

Something is going on there, but I couldn’t say what quite yet.

4. My Thoughts

They’re pushing the album for sure.  That benefits everyone, so it makes sense both sides would agree on that.  I don’t know if the current strangeness in the press is the result of a fight or a collaborative effort with a couple different goals, but I’m leaning towards the second for the most part.

I expect Zayn to show up again soon as he’s been quiet for an unusually long time right now.  I also expect babygate to make a reappearance, possibly at the same time.  Last time babygate reappeared the Zayn and Perrie breaking up story happened.  It looks like we might get a double whammy with those two again based on the timing of things.  

I do think Zayn will be back before the hiatus because I can’t see why they’d keep reminding everyone of his absence by planting these Twitter trends and linking him to 1D in the press if they weren’t going to have him back for a year or more.  The timing just doesn’t make sense.  I don’t now how soon we can expect that and I’m not certain they’ll even have him on stage for the rest of OTRA, but all we can do is wait and see.
