; but it's such a complicated thing

Carry On Countdown // Day ten {December 2nd} // Youtuber AU

carry on cast + youtube, my personal hc/au (?????)(it’s post canon but also au anna why do u always have to make things complicated idfk)

  • okay so i think it would all start with agatha
  • she would start a youtube channel with one of her friends in california
  • it’s like all aesthetically pleasing beautify + life style blog. 
  • picture make-up/ hair/ nails/ idek videos but also baking videos, house/apartment tours anything hauls. 
  • the kiddo’s over in london would start watching her, first just because it’s nice to see what agatha’s up to in ca, but they get low-key addicted to her channel because her video’s are just so nice and the aesthetic is on point.
  • i feel like baz would get hardcore addicted. like he’d love all her video’s and would literally text her about the nice clothes she showed in her haul and stuff like that. (such bonding)
  • simon would try out recipes from her baking videos and sent agatha pictures of the results and aah it’s just all so cute and nice. 
  • penny enjoys the make-up vids way more than she likes to admit.
  • anyways, baz is so into agatha’s channel and just the entire youtube thing that he’s thinking of starting one of his own
  • agatha finally convinces him to just start one and see how it’ll go. 
  • so he starts one but gets lost quite quickly because he doesn’t know what to make video’s about
  • his first video is a clothing haul and like, he does enjoy doing it, but his heart just isn’t fully in it.
  • so he makes like one meh video every 2 months, not really knowing what he’s doing until he decides that he needs to rearrange some stuff here.
  • baz starts daily vlogging.
  • lbr baz can talk a lot and just is such a snarky person. imagine him filming his day with his witty comments on the things that happen. 
  • penny and simon find it stressful at first because they always need to be sure baz doesn’t accidentally film simon’s wings/tail or penny using magic or something.
  • but like they get used to it and baz is just having a lot of fun. 
  • he notices that, because he’s filming his everyday life, he gets more out of his way to do more new stuff to make the vlogs as entertaining as possible. and it just somehow makes him more excited about just living life if that makes sense. somehow it becomes this whole therapeutic thing for him. 
  • simon and penny appear a lot in his vlogs. baz’ viewers live for sassy conversations and discussions between penny and baz. and penny has no problem with being on camera.
  • for simon it takes some time to get comfortable with speaking in front of a camera. he’s not a talkative person so this whole vlogging thing is just ???¿¿?¿?????¿? to him, but baz’ viewers find simon cute and nice.
  • baz and simon never really said anything about their relationship on baz’ channel and they don’t really act like they’re in a relationship in front of the camera. (they’re just normal them in front of the camara, but no pda stuff) so the viewers don’t really know about their relationship
  • though……after some time the viewers start to suspect things because of the way the boys sometimes look at each other and stuff.
  • sO that’s how the ship SNAZ comes about ((yes, baz’ viewers do choose the cool ship name))
  • once the shipping starts baz’ channel really starts to grow (because lbr that’s how a lot of those things work in the world of fandoms. sorry.)
  • simon and baz start to notice how baz’ viewers are shipping them and like, posting edits and fanfiction of them on the social media and they think it’s great. 
  • simon and baz are very amused by the shippers and start to act a tiny bit more pda on camera. just to make the viewers flip their shit
  • like simon will shortly rest his head on baz’ shoulder or baz brushing smudged chocolate from simon’s chin on camera and giving simon an Intense Look™ that u don’t give to ‘just friends’ ppl
  • the snaz fandom is dying. leGIT DYING 
  • the “THEY’RE BASICALLY CANON. THEY’RE DATING OK. LOOK AT THEM. THIS IS NOT JUST A FRIENDSHIP. diD YoU SEe tHAT” dying. 
  • simon and baz are just dying of laughter. 
  • but then the fights start on social media
  • the ‘you should say all this stuff because it’ll make simon and baz uncomfortable and i’ll ruin their friendship’ drama.
  • simon and baz see all this unfold on social media and just face palm.
  • they’re like “should we just tell them that we’re dating?”
  • they don’t want to be forced to be open about their relationship online just because people are fighting about it, but at the same time they never really wanted to hide it either. they didn’t even feel like they were purposefully hiding it.
  • it was just that at first they didn’t do pda stuff in front of a camera because simon didn’t feel fully comfortable whilst being on camera and after that it just kinda became a silent rule that they didn’t do pda stuff on camera.
  • but they never actually cared about if people knew about their relationship or not so…..
  • one day baz just starts his daily vlog whilst still being in bed, barely woken up, and you can see simon next to him in bed in the background. 
  • once that vlog is up everyone DIES
  • but the Not Shippers are just like “nono baz was just sleeping over at simon’s and penny’s it’s totally normal for them to sleep in the same bed”
  • simon and baz: *sigh*
  • second attempt of Exposing™ (not actually on youtube): baz posting a picture on instagram roses with the caption “buying flowers for my special boy @~simons ig~”
  • people die again, but still there are people like “special boy as in Special Good Friend” 
  • simon and baz are ready to cry
  • so is the snaz fandom
  • so. next vlog. there’s baz and simon in the same bed again. there’s baz calling simon “love” and there’s baz just talking to the camera about something that happened (idk, him rambling about a film he just saw with simon?) whilst simon is sitting next to him with his head resting on baz’s shoulder.
  • the entire snaz fandom is crying happy tears and feeling blessed and thanking baz for bringing this level of adorableness into their lives.
  • bUT STILL
  • there are idiots tweeting. “no baz isn’t dating simon u stupid fangirls”
  • and baz being so done just tweets back. “sorry sir/madam but simon snow, cute kid, crazy hair, is in fact my boyfriend who i have been happily dating for some time now. gnight.” 
  • and the whole snaz fandom just explodes. 
  • snaz is real ya’ll 
  • (((also later, when snaz is big™ they’ll bring out sweaters and beanies with the words ‘snazzy’ on it and it’s great)))
  • ((((also also. in an interview: “so, baz, since many big youtubers are brining out a book as well?” baz: “yes. it’s called twilight. it’s out september 6th 2006.” interviewer: ???¿????¿¿?¿??))))

anonymous asked:

where are you watching the other eyewitness?

it’s on youtube! the subtitles are so bad so if you’re not norwegian you’ll definitely have a problem understanding things :/// idk if it’s possible to edit subtitles on youtube because then i would definitely do it

One thing I really love about Steven Universe is how they emphasize that COMMUNICATION is important.

You have Garnet (who is essentially the embodiment of a relationship between Ruby and Sapphire) singing about being a conversation

You have Greg and Rose sorting out their confusion about their relationship through talking

And you have Steven encouraging Pearl and Greg to talk about their complicated history with Rose and with each other

Communication can solve a lot of conflicts, and is important in keeping a relationship going, whether it be platonic or romantic. I’m glad SU inculcates that in its audience :)

(on the fun side, you also learn that Greg likes to sort things out through talking then dancing)

“They’re still here!”

“So’s Magnussen. He should be at dinner, but he’s still in the building.”

Park Chan Wook’s upcoming new film The Handmaid (Agasshi) has wrapped up production at the end of October. Here are two new stills featuring its leading cast (Kim Min Hee, Ha Jung Woo, Kim Tae Ri and Cho Jin Woong). 

The film is based on Sarah Water’s acclaimed novel Fingersmith, and follows a young girl (newcomer Kim Tae Ri) who, raised as a petty thief, later becomes an accomplice to a con man (Ha Jung Woo) who plans to pose as a gentleman suitor to try and marry a wealthy lady (Kim Min Hee) out of her fortune. 

In the novel, things get complicated when the petty thief and the wealthy lady fall in love with each other. While there is no realease date yet, The Handmaid is likely to bow in South Korean cinemas in the second half of 2016.

but like do you ever think about the actual practicalities of creating the marauders map??? like shit, accurately drawing up just a normal map of a normal castle would take hours upon hours of work, especially for four teenagers who have like…… no idea what they’re doing. they basically taught themselves to be cartographers, for fun, when they were teenagers…… if that isn’t the most nerdy af thing you’ve ever heard idk what is.  add to that the fact that its Hogwarts with moving staircases, hidden corridors, secret passage ways behind tapestries and portraits, disappearing doors….. thats like…. a ridiculous amount of work, and thats not even taking into account all of the complicated magic they had to research and learn in order to track people and to disguise the map and to have it insult people on their behalf. not only did they have to explore every inch of the castle whilst taking notes, they must have spent countless hours at the library reading and sketching and researching,  and then there’s the whole casually becoming animagi thing. YEAH they were like… Raucous Youths who were forever getting into trouble and showing off and pulling stupid pranks and generally being the Marauders™ but they must also have had like….. a ridiculous amount of single-minded determination and stubbornness and just unwavering devotion to helping their friend/getting away with shit and honestly. its a terrifying combination.

baekhyun skateboarding skatepapering on stage lol

Gregory House was a doctor who started off abled and ended up with multiple disabilities, many of which were often dismissed by his friends, such as his chronic pain.

Gregory House had a serious drug addiction which was never romanticized and was treated very seriously and carefully by the writers, adding to this complicated character without ever making it seem like his addiction was a good thing and while it plainly showed his reasons for said addiction, they never used those reasons as an excuse.

Gregory House was shown to be depressed multiple times throughout the show and openly admitted that he contemplated suicide before.

Gregory House was an atheist who knew that praying to a higher power wasn’t going to make him wake up one day completely cured and while the show probably went a bit extreme with its religion bashing, it was actually a refreshing breather from characters like Locke who constantly preached that if you have faith, you will be completely healed.

Gregory House once delivered one of my favorite quotes ever: “Skinny, socially privileged white people get to draw this neat little circle. Everyone inside the circle is normal. Everyone outside the circle should be beaten, broken and reset so they can be brought into the circle. Failing that, they should be institutionalized or worse, pitied.”

In that same episode, Gregory House was the only character who was able to connect to an autistic patient because nobody else could be bothered to do so and he was the only one who was in that ‘circle’ with the kid. He knew it and he knew exactly how to communicate with the child until he was the one who figured out the medical issue.

Gregory House was a complete and utter asshole to everyone in his life and not once was this romanticized or villanized, it simply was a part of his character.

Gregory House was one of the best characters that showed that negative character development was still character development.

Gregory House gave some genuinely philosophical speeches and managed to prevent each and every single one of those speeches from being inspiration porn.

Gregory House was a genius who truly loved being a doctor and often struggled to balance his work and his disabilities.

Gregory House was a man who had a hatred, even a fear, of being wrong because being wrong meant that he wasn’t able to figure out the problem, that he couldn’t figure out the problem and as a character with multiple disabilities, he didn’t ever want to be seen as the man who couldn’t do something.

Gregory House was not able to be cured of his disabilities and demons. Not by a higher power. Not by medicine. Not by a love interest.

Gregory House was a disabled character who had layers upon layers of development, positive and negative, whose disabilities did define him, who was okay with having his disabilities define him, who was so much more than his disabilities, but disabled nonetheless.

House MD is an extremely flawed show with major problems including sexism and homophobia/transphobia but at the end of the day, it gave the disabled community one of the best examples of disability representation out there, second only to Bryke’s characters. It gave us a character whose disabilities were not used as inspiration porn but also didn’t dip too far into tragedy porn. It gave us a character who was not cured in the end and didn’t die in the end and was still living with his disabilities, getting through life one day at a time. It gave us a character who never sugar-coated things, who never tried to shy away from the topic of disabilities, who wasn’t afraid to make abled people uncomfortable.

Growing up disabled (we should make that a hashtag) House MD was one of my favorite shows and it had a huge impact on me. It still does.

After many incredible years, I’m making the difficult decision to close the book on Cobra Starship. If you stop reading this now, I want to say thank you if you’ve ever supported Cobras in any way. Whether you came to our shows and bought merch, or simply listened to a track and shared it with a friend, you allowed us to live out the most incredible adventure, and I am eternally grateful for that.

I started Cobra Starship with a fundamental desire to reconnect to music the same way I did when I first picked up a bass at 12 years old; when things were carefree, pure, and less complicated. It was almost 2007 when Cobras set out on its first tour, and just a few short years later, a groundswell of support from diehard kids all over the world catapulted us into unknown territory. To this day I am humbled by how much love our fans showed us, and by the completely unanticipated level of mainstream success we achieved. When my dad reluctantly accepted that I was dropping out of school to pursue music, he never imagined that I would have platinum records, VMA nominations, or even be able to move out of his basement (to be honest, I even had doubts about that last point). But because of you guys, we were able to achieve more than what most kids who start jamming in their parents’ garage ever dream of. I grew up as a little idealist punk who always saw himself as an outsider, and the fact that I got to play in the main arena still blows my mind, so thank you.

To me, the most rewarding thing about Cobra Starship is that we were successful not because we played the game, but because we broke the rules and paved our own way. There was something magical about how everything came together, and we were blessed to have your support and to see our dreams materialize. However, I know that sometimes when things go on for too long, that magic can start to fade … And as hard as it is for all of us, I would rather close this chapter of our lives and be able to look back on it fondly than allow something that means so much to us stagnate. My only hope is that we were able to be the backdrop to some of your fondest memories, and that those experiences have positively impacted you in a permanent way.

Again, I want to thank you; and I want you to know that even though Cobra Starship is coming to an end, the things that we stood for (rooting for underdogs, taking control of your destiny, taking shots at the establishment, not taking any shit, and not taking yourself too seriously), will live on and will continue to matter to me. I hope they will continue to matter to you too.

To Nate, Victoria, Ryland, Alex, Halvo & Andy, I want to thank you guys for believing in my crazy vision and putting your trust in me to steer the ship. No book could ever capture the insanity of our adventures. We built this thing from scratch and we have so much to be proud of. Being in Cobras with you taught me what it takes to be a leader, and for that I will be forever grateful.

I want to thank everyone on our team who worked with us and all of our crew who took care of everything for us. We came up with something totally out of the box and we were able to bring it to life by putting our heads together and creating new strategies. We are lucky to have worked with some of the greatest people in the business and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Looking back on everything, I realize just how grateful I am to have made music for a living. Not simply because I got to (quote-unquote) “live the dream,” but more importantly, because I was able to have such a cathartic lens by which to understand my life; writing was my therapy and shows were my salvation. I also realize how fortunate I am to have experienced a somewhat tumultuous road as an artist. It was because of the challenges along my journey that I was forced to look inwards, accept responsibility and transform. I feel like I’ve lived a hundred lifetimes and that I’ve learned things I could have never been taught elsewhere. I was able to connect with people all over the world and from all walks of life, and I will take these lessons, experiences, and connections with me wherever I go. But now the time has come to move on.

That of course begs the question: Well, where are you going bro?

The truth is that there is nothing that I am more passionate about than music. And although the time has come for me to pass the baton, nothing would be as rewarding for me as the opportunity to share my wisdom and experiences with the next generation of artists.

And so, me and my boy Mike Carden are starting a company to do just that:

theartistgroup.org

Get at us. We’ll see you in 2016.

Love you guys.

And even though it’s over, just remember that Cobras never say die.
