Electro is seeming to be impossible to get, the hp of mysterio was 780 in streak 4, now it’s jumped to 2500 in streak 5, I’m thinking streak 7 will be 10,000hp. As mysterio is also gaining his health back after each attack, mission board only drops 2 gas masks each quest every on average 6 hours, sometimes doesn’t even show. With the addition of i don’t even know when episode 5 ends, as it’s blank, with no response when I asked them at the start. Worst event so far, at least the characters look cool.

Hello! I've always wondered if the academy supplies the girls with their shoes? If they had to pay for them themselves, that'd be an awful lot of money!

I did some digging and this is what I found. Studying at VBA is very expensive (at least by Russian standards): around USD$1500-$2000 a month. This includes accommodations, food, classes, uniform, etc.

The academy occasionally supplies the shoes, but it’s not a regular occurrence and parents mostly have to pay for uniform and shoes themselves. Those children who participate in professional practice (performances at the Mariinsky and other theatres) generally receive shoes for the performance from the academy. According to one parent, uniform and shoes cost them around USD$250 a month. A pair of Grishko pointe shoes costs roughly 2800 roubles = USD$45. A standard Grishko leotard is around 2500 rouble = USD$38.57. It’s very likely that VBA students get a significant discount, though I don’t have any evidence of this.

According to info published on VBA’s official website, the tuition for international students is USD$17,000 a year. No mention of shoes and uniform on this list:

  • Accommodation at the on-site dormitory
  • 5 meals per day at the VBA cafeteria with a balanced menu, supervised by the VBA nutritionist
  • Classical dance training (duh)
  • Russian language intensive course
  • 24 hour a day security
  • Opportunity to receive complimentary tickets to Mariinsky Theatre and Mikhailovsky Theatre ballet performances
  • Participation in ballet performances on the stage of Mariinsky Theatre, the Hermitage Theatre and the School Theatre of the Vaganova Ballet Academy
  • Medical Care
  • Airport  transfers with assistance from the Academy staff upon arrival to St. Petersburg International airport

The Pink of His Lips

by seitsemannen

Jackson had been stealing glances at Mark’s lips for far too long, imagining what it would be like to kiss them, bite them, to have them trail down his body, and how Mark would sound, breathless beneath his body. It was no good. It was dangerous, and Jackson was developing feelings that were certainly not alright to be directed towards another member of his group.

If only Jackson would open his eyes and notice that Mark was looking at him too, frustrated and longing.

Well, what do you know. Somehow this trash blog run by a trash cat managed to accumulate over 2,500 followers as of July 21st. I don’t know why…? Why over 2,500 people would want to even read this crap blog? Maybe you’re all just bot accounts. But you know what? If that is the case, you’re all really nice, wonderful bots accounts.

So as a token of thanks, I’d really like to do something for you all. But I don’t really have any skills or talents or can do you something creative. So I’m kind of just going to give you some stuff that I have around my room. Yep. You’re playing for a chance to win my stuff. You can find out more about all that, plus the rules, after the break.

And ALSO, a super fancy bonus. If this post manages to get over 1,000 notes by the deadline, minus my own reblogs, I will post a picture of my honest to goodness goddamn face. And then you’ll see why I say I’m ugly so often. But it’s of little consequence ‘cause I know it won’t get near that many notes! Hahahahahaha!!

Anyway, the deadline is the end of August 14th. Like I said, please be sure to check the rules for how to enter. And seriously, thank you so much for following. I’m really flattered that my work has had even this kind of impact.

DGM 223 translation notes & reaction post

Here we go again!

[ STARBUDS RELEASE - DGM 223 ] (@Batoto)

First off, thanks and credits:

  • Swny ( @krorys​ ) acquired the raws, cleaned them and typeset the entire translation. Considering her swamped schedule, the amount of time and effort she’s put into this over the last two days verges on heroic. Huge thanks go out to her for all of that.
  • I wrote the base translation, of course, and then I had three wonderful volunteer proofers go through it to look for errors and discuss the nuances with me. I owe endless thanks to @togaochi (part of the original team), @komochizuki and @sunset-tower, all of whom caught things I missed and made substantial and often beautiful improvements to the script. (If any of you want to do this again next time, the invitation stands. ♥)


Under the cut I’ll explain some of the choices I made, tell you about an untranslatable thing or five, theorize, and do a healthy amount of flailing.

China: A Prisma Tale

Visual experiment from District 7 combines timelapse shots taken in China and painstakingly processes each individual frame with style transfer photo app Prisma:

Each frame of the 1 minute and 20 second video had to be processed via the Prisma App which took almost 80 hours to complete. The processing/rendering was at the mercy of the servers. Most of the project had to be completed between 11pm and 4am EST because the app would freeze or shutdown due to overloaded serves or too many users on at the same time.

Thankfully the algorithm used to create the painting-like scene(s) was very consistent when it came to processing the images. The total video was approximately 2500 frames and took a bit of ingenuity to stitch together.

By the end of the project (which took around 5 days to produce) my fingers were numb and eyes bloodshot. The worst part was the constant repetition of taking the photo, processing the photo, moving 1 frame forward, and then saving the image. Sometimes I would forget to do a step and have to start over completely. It was mind-numbing work to say the least!
