Personal

You’ve heard about Mom Friend and Dad Friend, now get ready for....

Grandpa Friend™:

- almost always grumpy
- bad at showing affection but cares about their friends a lot
- “what did you say?”, “Sorry i didn’t hear that, can you repeat it?”
- often reminisces about their youth (even though they’re probably only in their twenties. Alternatively: “kids these days…”)
- too old for this shit (see above)
- totally not down with the youth
- bad back (and everything else hurts too)
- likes to complain

The trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s newest film The Shape of Water dropped today and I urge you all to see it and support it. It’s a dark fairytale about a mute woman who forms a connection with a humanoid sea creature that’s being studied in a lab.

It’s set during the Cold War and stars Michael Shannon and Octavia Spencer, with Sally Hawkins as the lead. Doug Jones is also in it! (I assume he’ll be playing the creature)

Movies like these tend to flop because people don’t care about original inventive films even though they say they do. Del Toro is a true artist and god of cinema and needs continued support, especially from the American fans.

You deserve all the love and kindness this world has to offer, I may not be able to give it all to you but I’ll never stop trying to.

I just love and respect Jin so much and learning about his father made my respect for him grow ever more. Usually children from those families end up running their businesses but Jin had his own dreams and passions and he went to college so that he could make a name for himself. When he was scouted by bighit without having any singing or dancing skills he auditioned and got in, and proceeded to train and practice tirelessly while still working on attaining his degree. Despite coming from a well off family he lived in that little dorm and used his pocket money to buy groceries so he could cook for his members. He always remained humble. I always remember that moment during their concert when Jin’s family was in the audience and he was in tears, talking about how his mom had to hear other moms talking about how proud they were of their sons and how he wanted his mom to be proud of him and show him off as well. And he finally got that and he made something of himself, on his own will, and his mom could brag about him too. I am just so proud of him. He gave up that comfortable life to make something of himself and he’s now in one of the biggest groups in kpop. I just love and respect him so much.

You know, I would love to know what @therealjacksepticeye thought about the Kingdom Hearts III trailer and the fans’ reaction to it. Clearly out of the three games presented at that panel, KH was the most anticipated. I’m not sure if he’s as big of a fan as a lot of people, but it meant a lot to me that he was there when the new trailer was shown. Both Jack and Kingdom Hearts mean a lot to me.
