You were my first portal into Kaylor. I know you're not now, but I have so much respect for you and your knowledge of Kaylor and your sources. Do you think (knowing what you do from people behind the scenes) that Karlie and Taylor are having problems, have broken up, or just decided to lie low and go dark for awhile? I trust your answer more than what anyone else says. Thanks you in advance.
Awh, thanks! As for the girls, I check in with a few mutuals here and there and I’d say they’re still good and are just laying low (especially Taylor).
This Saturday, February 25th, is the 30th anniversary of the release of the first episode of my favorite anime, Bubblegum Crisis. Due to a prior-commitment schedule, I won’t be doing anything special on that day to commemorate it except for posting a few more wallpapers, but I felt the date was significant enough to mention. In the future, I’ll be doing… Something. Not sure what.
Bubblegum Crisis was one of my first anime and it’s stuck with me ever since. The character design, personalities, world setting and musical direction all come together to make something intensely enjoyable that I’ve watched again and again. I’ve liveblogged it, I’ve made wallpapers and an art print, I’ve purchased more merchandise for it than is probably reasonable. I just don’t think there’s ever going to be an anime that compares to it in my life.
If you’ve never watched the show, now is a fine time to start. You’re probably too late to get your hands on a hard copy of it in time for the anniversary, but there’s always YouTube, which contains what look to be VHS rips for that authentic early 90s anime viewing, just how I myself originally experienced it. Here are some helpful links for the first few episodes. *These are not the best episodes in the series* but by the time you watch them, you should know if the other five are worth your time.
I'm not disabled (I mean technically I am but only having half of an index finger doesn't really count) but it always rubbed me the wrong way when disabilities in fic (and even published work) used the same 6 angst tropes just because. Like, angst is fine, but every time I read those I keep having moments of "You had PERFECT comedic setup there but you BLEW IT" and it's just so annoying? Let me have comedy/crack fic with disabled characters I beg of you.
Not letting disabled people be funny is completely unrealistic in my opinion. I can’t help but think of this clip from BTG a few years ago:
This kid is hilarious, and not seeing that part of someone’s character in a fic because you’re focusing so heavily on angst is really maddening.
“Again with that? I told you I don’t want to settle on anything, I don’t want to get too attached to it. In case–”
“Yeah, I know. Look, Luna, this is getting ridiculous. I think it’s pretty much safe to say you’re going to be fine this time. Relax a little.” Sean huffed, only realising it probably wasn’t the best choice of words after it was too late.
“Excuse me?” Luna raised a brow, “What’s your deal? You think I haven’t been trying?”
“I know, I’m sorry. This is just getting really repetitive. It’s difficult trying to stay positive for the both of us, too, alright? You’re not exactly making it any easier.”
“Oh, okay then, I’m sorry? I didn’t know you could get over this sort of thing just because someone tells you to, wow, I should’ve tried that ages ago!”
An uncomfortable silence fell between them, neither of them really wanting to go any further with the discussion.
It took a solid minute before Sean spoke up again, “I think Rain has a nice ring to it.”
David Tennant To Be Woman’s Weekly Cover Star - "I was always pretending to be other people and telling stories"
David Tennant will be gracing the cover of the new issue of Woman’s Weekly due to hit newsagents on Tuesday 28th February.
The issue contains an interview with David who chats about how he decided to become an actor , “I was always pretending to be other people and telling stories” and how he copes with fame, “I did a day in Center Parcs and Georgia warned me it was going to be a nightmare, but it was fine. Other times, you’ll walk to the Post Office and you end up jumping in to bushes. Nobody knew who I was until I was relatively elderly which I think was quite useful.” He also speaks about his new play Don Juan In Soho which he describes as “a very modern version of the Don Juan story.. very funny, very filthy and a little bit twisted.”
