Black and White Photography by Nathan Wirth

Nathan Wirth, a native San Franciscan, is a self-learned photographer who uses a variety of techniques– including long exposure, infrared, and intentional camera movement– to express his unending wonder of the fundamental fact of existence. Wirth, who earned both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English Literature from San Francisco State University, brings a deep appreciation of poetry to his explorations of place (especially the sea). Poets such as George Oppen, James Schuyler, Seamus Heaney, Lorine Niedecker, Elizabeth Bishop, William Wordsworth, Robert Frost, and George Mackay Brown have played a fundamental role in shaping his attention to the things and places that he photographs. Often returning to the same locations many times, Wirth seeks to explore the silence and the sublimity of those places. Wirth makes his living teaching English Composition at City College of San Francisco.

See, one thing I’ve noticed about fandom is that they love to classy up his mannerisms and the narrative for Levi. I’ve seen lots of rp where Levi is talking as though he walked out of Harvard with a Bachelor’s in the Arts of English. I love the final piece of advice there: “Levi is human and it’s okay for him to be human, but don’t fall into the trap of assuming he has to follow certain guidelines to actually be written as a believable human being.” I see lots of people doing this (c)

Hello again, Anon!

I appreciate the compliment! I haven’t had a ton of complaints personally about Levi being written in platonic canon relationships because I haven’t really bothered to read much of it, but I’m sure I can think of some things I’ve seen the last year and a half that have kind of bugged me about the general way veteran characters seem to behave around one another–and since Levi is one of these characters everything should apply.

  • Like I said in my last response, the veterans aren’t children. Dita Ness is probably 38+. Mike and Erwin are close to 40. Levi is close to 35. Hange is probably close to 30. Nanaba’s age is up in the air but canonically she’s a fairly serious, calm character. There’s a decent chance that Mike’s entire squad and part of Hange’s classify as “from five years ago” (including Moblit possibly) or longer. Some people have probably been in the military 5, 10, 15, even 20 years.
  • Keeping that in mind, they shouldn’t be written interacting the way that a gaggle of teenagers or early 20-somethings do. Not only are they professionals in the military, but they’re all well past that stage of life and are more likely to act like, idk, the 30-something-year-old peers they are instead of a high school or college friends-clique.
  • That’s not to say these people don’t know how to have fun! I’m sure they do. There’s a good chance that surviving and staying fit sit at the forefront of their minds, though. Pranking, if it happens at all, will be low-key stuff that won’t hurt or damage anyone or any property or waste supplies. I’m sure some of these people spend hours just talking to each other about their families and their hopes and dreams and things that interest them. Considering what they’ve seen, going out to have drinks together and then just sitting around talking nursing a drink or two may very well be a definition good time.
  • People in the fandom tend to pick one characteristic, exaggerate it to extremes, and make it a defining feature of each veteran. This usually ends with Playboy!Erwin, Dog!Mike, Serious!Nanaba, TCHBRAT!Levi, Ate10000Skittles!Hange, DrunkAsFuckEveryDay!Gelgar, HARSES!!!!Dita, and so on. These people are so much more than one tiny part of their personality, and exaggerating one aspect of them to extremes does us all a disservice. They’re boring to read and write about because they’re one-note cardboard tropes.
  • I could probably talk all day about who these characters are, but if you’re not familiar with them, or you want to take a second look to try and parse their personality down to more understandable levels, just give the series  a re-read and try taking notes. Each time Levi or Erwin or [insert character here] appears, look at what they’re doing. Ask yourself why they’re doing it. Is that a question answered in the text immediately or do you have to wait 20 chapters to figure out what their motivation was? Pay careful attention to how they treat their subordinates and their superior officers or equals. How people treat their lessers matters.

A small bit of advice about Levi’s platonic relationships (I can make a more detailed post later probably but it will take me a long time as I have a lot of stuff I have to deal with this week) is this:

Levi’s closest two relationships are with Hange and Erwin. Then we have his relationship to Farlan and Isabel. Then we have his relationship with his special ops squad, and lastly: each member of the 104th squad.

The only real way to look at Levi’s relationships is to figure out who Levi is, who the other person is, and then look at how they interact within the canon. Sometimes motivations become clearer when you have more context or a better understanding of how a character works outside of that particular situation.

Obviously we will all interpret Levi a little differently (and there’s just enough wiggle room to say he is in character–within certain parameters, of course), and because of that, even if our opinions on Levi are very close, the slight differences may cause us to interpret his relationships differently. This can end with some people shipping one thing over another, but it can also result in even Levi’s platonic relationships being written in a manner that may not match up 100%. IMO, they should still be close enough that the other person should be able to say: “Well, I don’t really write it/think about it that way, but I can see how you got this and I think it can work”–both with Levi’s character and the way his relationships with others are written.

Peyj Turner’s List of Quality Garbage (pt. 2)

GOOOOOD EVENING, SINNNNNERSSS! Welcome to another exciting installment of Peyj Turner’s List of Quality Garbage! It’s yet another one of these anime listicles written by poor sods on the internet who don’t have anything else to do on a Wednesday night! Last time, I set up the stage for why I was writing out this terrible, terrible testament to my poor taste in Japanese cartoons, and you guys seemed to like it! 


Weirdly enough, I’ve been on this site for far longer than I should be, and finally got a piece of hate-mail for hating on the first anime with its figurative head on the chopping block on my last list, Himouto! Umaru-chan. So, in terms of fan interactions, I must be doing something right! Here’s the continuation of the terrible, terrible use of my Bachelor of Arts in English, and my picks for the shittest anime I’ve ever had the regret to love! Be warned! There are BOOBS ahead!

3. Monster Musume

TIEM FOR TEH BOOBIESSSS! Yeah, unfortunately a good lot of these anime I’m mentioning now are from a time when I used to think a whole lot about BUBBIES! I’d like to think I’m over all that nonsense, but when I watch Monster Musume, I feel an odd sense of nostalgia (and boobies). 

I used to follow this manga, back when I had to wait for each chapter to be released in Japanese and translated by hardcore fans. And when we got a chapter, we were HAPPY! And we lugged our ecchi to and from school uphill, both ways, in FIVE FEET OF SNOW! 

It’s shallow in every sense of the word, from the story to the characters, and, god, even the super interesting concept! Can you imagine modern Japan with mythical creatures from fantasy lore? And how awesome it could have been if it didn’t focus soley on the BOOBIESSS?! How could they have fucked it all up this much?! *sigh* If you want to see a human male being harassed by things that are technically non-human, watch Urusei Yatsura instead.

4. My Wife is the Student Council President

Opening up with the flimsiest hook ever, the main character of this incredibly ecchi, boob-filled series essentially has the Student Council president suddenly and inexplicably become his wife. I don’t even have much to say about this show, other than the fact that it’s like eight minutes long per episode, and Crunchyroll (feeling the distinct need to cater to everyone who sends them their seven dollars a month) even airs the uncensored versions of each episode a week after broadcast!

And yeah, a good number of jokes are about boobage and the abundance thereof. Not gonna lie, when I first found out that it actually had two different sets of episodes, I immediately decided to check it out, because I am a terrible person. 

But, the amount of salacious content can only get you so far in a series, and dropped it just as immediately. If you want an anime about a student council that actually does something interesting, go watch Revolutionary Girl Utena.

And so ends the second part of my listicle series on anime whose paper should have been used for wiping shit instead of being shit. Look forward to the rest of series in the near future!

What are you aiming for in life?

I want to finish community college as fast as possible then transfer to my desired school. I want to be a journalist of some kind in the near future, so receiving a bachelor’s in english or a bachelor of arts in humanities would be essential. Then maybe applying to Colombia’s School of Journalism. Idk I have crazy dreams, and I just can’t wait to engage in all sorts of different lifestyles. Having a pristine mindset to life is the definitely a goal as well. ツ Those are my educational plans- not my life plans sorry I didn’t really answer your question.

University of Alaska, Southeast on a rare sunny day.

One week to go until Departure for Los Angeles. The waiting summer. Between the rain, the mosquitoes, and the rain has been lonely at times but overall….adult-ish.

Most everything is packed. Still taking paper books despite buying a kindle. Just need to grab some fudge before departure and start the long list of hugs.

This will be the third place i will depart and it’s no easier than the first.

Welcome to my brand new blog Not Another Feminist Stereotype. Here are some things you should know as you venture into this new project of mine…

I am nineteen years old and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts; an English Major and Drama Minor with some sociology papers thrown into the mix as well. Now that I’m in my second year of study I am becoming increasingly aware of the issues society is starting to face – in regards to gender, sexuality and feminism in particular. These are new issues that generations before us haven’t really had to think about because these issues were so stigmatized and therefore people tried to ignore them as best as they could. As well as becoming aware of these issues, I am becoming increasingly interested in them as well because it is the world I am living in now and the notion of change is all around us.

Now in regards to the title of this blog, I think it needs some explaining. I definitely identify as a feminist – this is an important fact that needs to be recognised. I strongly believe in equal rights across the broad spectrum of genders and I think this is an extremely important issue in our society as it has been for many years. However, I do have a problem with how feminism is looking today in 2015. Post modern feminism seems to be taking a turn for the worse – there are hundreds of people out there who I feel are going about this movement the wrong way. Feminism is not about hating on men. Feminism is a movement that was created to raise awareness to and create change surrounding the issues of gender inequalities. With the increasing development of technology and social media becoming popular than ever I feel it may be doing more damage to the feminist movement than what is obviously intended. I just want to raise awareness of this fact and to discuss issues that are happening today in regards to everything I have mentioned above.

It is also important to note that this is entirely my own opinion and I’m writing this purely because I love to write and I would ideally like to create change, even in a very, very small way. I hope by reading what I have to say and looking at the content of my evidence you will begin to ask questions about the society we live in and what the future of this society will be. Feel free to ask me questions, to challenge my perspective or simply just tell your story - I would love to open the floor up for discussion surrounding these topics and to hear your input too.

8 years ago...

8 years ago in May, I had just finished my Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications w/ English Minor. Two weeks later I was diagnosed with my first Breast Cancer. For 9 months before that diagnosis, I was exhausted and had trouble remembering all that I studied for, what I said in my speeches, and how I presented in my finals. I also lived on GMOs, corn syrup, and coffee. Little by little I realized that the food abuse during the college years had added up. Please eat well. Food has a karma on your body. #EatOrganic #GrowGreen #NoToGMOs

Let’s try... Learning More about Myself

For the next 10 days I will be answering 10 questions about myself. Dunno what I’ll achieve, might learn something new about me and its something to do.

Source of questions

Day one:

1. Who are you?

My name is Michelle Elizabeth Bicknell. I am a 21 year old female, most days although I have the odd day when I feel far more masculine. I love who I want to love and everyone I love is a beautiful person inside and out. I am a graduate of Victoria University of Wellington with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Classical Studies, English Literature and German. I currently work in a café which just started up two days ago; I am a part of a whole new team and helping set the ground standard for one of the best cafes in Wellington.

2. What are you passionate about?

I am so extremely passionate about Classics. I love it. I could go on for ages about it. I have a passion for writing, though I don’t practice enough and am not overly good at it but I enjoy it. I love reading as well.

3. What are the achievements you are most proud of?

I am so proud of my BA because I know it’s what I wanted to do and it was three years of bloody hard work to get to it. I never let myself believe it was worth nothing, because it is always worth the world to do something you enjoy. If you don’t, what’s the point?

4. What are you most grateful for in life?

I am grateful for everything in my life. I am most grateful for the people in my life; my parents are the most inspiring people I know and most loving and taught me how to be the person I am today and I am so thankful to them for that. My siblings are hardworking and I am so proud of them both. My friends are positive and intelligent and I learn so much from them. I am also grateful for a roof over my head, food in my fridge and stomach and clean water. I am grateful for an education and for how privileged I am. I will never not be grateful for my circumstances.

5. What are the most important things to you in life?

Living and loving. It’s fine to be careful but if you’re missing out on living it isn’t worth it, especially at a young age. And you should just love. Love everyone around you, especially the ones who make you a better person. Being open-minded is also of the utmost importance. Never stop questioning and never assume you are right because you have a strong opinion of others. Don’t let stubbornness get in the way of an opportunity to be educated. There is a world of things to learn and experience. You have one life that is influenced by so many and that can influence so many more. Be a good influence.

6. How would you describe yourself?

A hard worker with a great work ethic. A fast learner. An optimist and a realist. A genuinely happy person. Privileged. Intelligent. Young. Curvy. Inquisitive. Observant. Outspoken. Somewhat confrontational.

7. What are your values?

What do you represent? What do you want to embody? I do my best to represent me. That is to say I do my best to stay true to myself which is what everyone should do. I represent equality of everyone and everything.

8. Do you love yourself?


9. Why or Why not?

I am proud of who I am. I think I love myself because I surround myself with confident people who love themselves, love me and love others around them. It is easy to love yourself when people around you who you respect loving themselves genuinely despite knowing they aren’t perfect. I love myself not because I think I am perfect but because I understand there is no reason not to love myself because I am no one else but me and I have to live with me and it’s exhausting to not love yourself. I love me because if I don’t I’ll never believe anyone else can. I love myself because others love me.

10. How can you love yourself more today?

By being proud of what I have done today alone. By writing down all the reasons why I love myself like I just did. By being asked if I love myself and knowing full well that the answer in this point in time is unabashedly yes.

Hey Tay!

Since you followed me on July 16th, I figured it was about time I properly introduce myself. As you may have already gathered, my name is Christine and I’m (feelin’) 22. I think the picture above is a good representation of who I am.

I recently got a camera and have been exploring the world of photography as often as I can. I’ve developed a real fondness for taking pictures, but writing is what has my heart. I just graduated from college this past May with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Journalism. I hope to go back to school in the near future and get my MFA in Creative Writing, so I might one day be published, though for now, I’m trying to enjoy post-grad life and find a job. It’s been difficult thus far, so I’m trying to remain optimistic.

Whenever I feel discouraged, I remind myself of your quote, “There are a lot of heartbreaking moments in getting anywhere worth going” and it helps. I also like to listen to “Shake It Off” and remind myself not to get caught up in the small stuff and that everything will come together the way it’s supposed to when it’s supposed to. You and your music have been a part of my life for nearly ten years now, so I’ve had you to turn to during a lot of difficult times.

Thank you for being there for me throughout my schooling, bullying, friends leaving, and boy drama. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I didn’t have you to help me through it.

Even though we’ve never met, I consider you the wise older sister I always wish I had (#OnlyChildProbs). I had a blast at your 1989 tour this summer on June 12th and I can’t wait for what amazing things you have planned in the future.

Thanks again for always being a source of comfort to me and for following me on here on July 16th. I freaked out in the best way possible! :)

I love you endlessly.


Christine ♥️


I am not happy. I have a boyfriend who supports and loves me so much and he is the best thing that ever happened to me. I am almost done with university which means I will graduate soon. Yet, I am not happy. To be honest, even though I am almost done with university, I am not happy. I mean, I should be happy because, finally, I’ll be graduating soon and I can work professionally and go and move to the US but I am not happy with what I am doing with school. Since the very first day I entered university as a Bachelor of Arts in English student, I am not happy. I don’t like my school but, most of all, I don’t like my course. But I don’t have any choice. I didn’t get in to the university that I want so I have no choice but to go to my current university even though I don’t like it there. My course is quite okay but it is not the course I’ve always wanted to take. I wanted to take Psychology but I didn’t take it (I don’t want to make this long so I will not tell the reason why) and now I am not happy and I hate myself so much because of it. I want to shift to Psychology but if I ever did, it will take me a long time to graduate. I am almost done with university and I wanted to change my course. I don’t know what to do. Finish and graduate unhappy or change my course and graduate happy?

I JUST WROTE MY VERY LAST UNDERGRADUATE EXAM!!!!! Now I only have one essay left and then I AM DONE MY HONOURS ENGLISH BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE! And this last paper is for my women’s studies class so it’ll basically just be one of my usual feminist rants har har har. I’m… Actually in a good mood?? For the first time in FOREVER?!?!? I feel so aliiiive!

Bachelor of Arts in English President

???????????????????????????? di ko talaga alam kung anong nangyari. Medyo late na pero ikkwento ko pa rin. Di ko alam kung lahat ba ng kabatch ko nung highschool ganito, or ako lang. Sa school kasi wala akong permanent friends. Yung tipong friend lang kita pag nasa classroom tayo, pag may activity tayo or presentation, pero paglabas ng room “magkakilala” lang tayo. Katulad nung highschool medyo mas malala lang ngayon. Bahay-school lang ako. Di na ko tumatambay o pumupunta kung saan saan. Ni mga kacourse ko di ko masyado nakakabond, attender lang ako ng meetings. May isang subject nga na magkakaklase silang lahat tapos ako lang yung wala, irreg kasi. Hirap ng ireeg, pati friends mo irregular din. So sa chat naming lahat others ako madalas, pero nagkakausap rin naman kami, minsan na-oop lang talaga ako syempre magkakaklase sila eh. Pero hindi rin kasi nagkakaroon ng bonding eh or di lang talaga umaattend. Ewan. Yung president kasi namin currentl medyo hindi ko dama. Hindi ko dama in a way na parang wala naman sya masyadong ginagawa for us. Walang maayos na pic ng updated uniform namin, walang ganito walang ganyan. Reklamador ako sorry. Feeling ko i can do better chos pero sa isip ko lang yun kasi ngayong college ayoko talaga ng exposure. Ewan ko ba ayoko napapansin ako hahahahahaha ni ayoko nga maglakad patawid ng basketball court kasi nahihiya ako na madami tumingin sakin or what kaya pag pupunta ako ng CB from the entrance iikot pa talaga ako ng MB di bale ng malayo basta hindi ako naexpose. 

Tapos eto na nagpatawag ng meeting yung president at adviser ng course namin para daw sa election of new officers. Bago pa yung meeting iniisip ko na sino inonominate ko, sino iboboto ko. Paano ako papasok ng room na yun baka magulat sila “ay sino ka?” joke ang oa ko na oo na hahahahahahaha habang nag eelection, nagsalita yung asviser namin “You nominate Rabbi for a higher position” Si rabbi dati kong classmate last sem, medyo palagi kaming taliwas ng opinion. Pag kami magkausap laging may debate over almost everything. Matalino rin naman sya pero alam namin na mas matalino ako hahahahahahaha ang kapal pero ganun eh #ProduktongTagsci hahahahahaha from there I realized na malamang nakikitaan na ng potensyal ni Maam Cuasay, yung adviser, si Rabbi bilang president. Ang kinagulat ko lang, Vice President Internal palang, nanalo na si Rabbi. Tapos napaisip ako. Eh sino president? Nanominate si Franz, isang year din syang naging president noon. I was thinking na sya na iboboto ko kasi experienced nya na eh. Tapos ewan ko ba kung anong nangyari pero narinig ko pangalan ko………. Ninominate ako ang wala. Ni hindi ko nga kaclose kung sino man nagsabi ng pangalan ko. Pero nagulat ako kasi, remember when I thought that I can do better. I think this is the Lord telling me na “show them what you got daughter” Nasa isip ko lang talaga yun, wala ko pinagsabihan noon talaga promise. Nagulat ako biglang nangyari yun. Nagkabotohan na, tie kami ni ate franz. Pero ako ang nanalo bakit? kasi Si ate franz editor ng The Standard yung magazine ng Arellano so bawal maelect yun. Nanalo ako? Nanalo ako! Nung una masaya ako “nung una” a week after di ko na mahanap ang sarili ko sa ilalim ng mga papel na kailangan kong ipasa at kolektahin para sa org namin. Org kasi yung samahan ng AB english. Akala ko madali lang. Akala ko kaya ko. Pero dumating yung time na umiiyak na ko, nakakatawa pero umiyak talaga ako parang nung nagpresident lang ako ng mars nung first year. Iyakin. Pero di ko naman pinakita sakanila or kahit kanino. Ang drama ko eh kesyo pakiramdam ko wala na kong time apara sa sarili ko hahahahahahaha but then naisip ko “Kinaya nga ni Vera, eh mas magaling ako dun, ako pa kaya” Tapos ayun nasanay na ko na busy, nasanay na ko na pumupunta ng school kahit walang pasok para umattend ng meetings. Mahirap pero kaya by the grace of God!
