Hi there! May I ask how you made those gifs that you did for an rp meme 'six characters that aren't mine'??

oh daaaaaamn. at the time that was a long, hard job of totally clicking around and hoping for the best hahaha. and i 100% stole the idea from @sammrps ‘s to begin with, hers is a lot better. 

honestly, I branched out and learned how to use the layers in the animation timeline by trial and error. It was a lot of keyframe work. (I did an animation degree in college, so that helped by giving me a lot of background knowledge to make educated guesses.) its really just a lot of hiding and unhiding layers along the timeline tbh. but here. i’ll try and make a speedy tutorial???

INTO A CREDIT STILL (or something);

Edit: i forgot how i did the motion blur, but as soon as i figure it out, i’ll update this tutorial.

Navajo Protest Artists Arrested

Flagstaff, AZ

 

On September 19th, 2011 @ 6:00 a.m. Thomas Greyeyes (Diné)

and Elizabeth Grace Miles (San Carlos Apache) were arrested by Flagstaff Police for creating a street art installation that used organic sustainable materials.

The project used dirt, mud, and corn stalks to make site specific

Installations that would bring attention to the highly controversial San Francisco Peaks (waste-water snow) issue.

 Flagstaff police cited the individuals for criminal damage.

 

The mainstream media has already misquoted Greyeyes and Miles in various publications lumping them in with other acts of protest. City officials immediately destroyed the art installations with a water hose, broom and dustpan. By 10:00 a.m. there was no trace of any art having ever been placed in public.

 

Greyeyes is currently majoring at ASU (Tempe) in Intermedia Arts. One of his current art assignments was called “ Without A Trace”. An assignment about making art that would not leave any trace in a community or public space.

He further explains his actions/artwork: “As a creative person, I thought of ways in which I could express my feelings for the Peaks issue. I felt the need to express our own native perspective and show the beauty in that. I wanted to make something that is conceptually and visually strong. Art is often considered to be something to hang on a wall. I was thinking in other ways that could be more powerful. I wanted to merge ideas of culture, protest, and art into one message. I needed to create something that would celebrate the relationship Indigenous people have with the land, our home.”

 

Grace Miles is an artist, musician of Apache /Navajo heritage and comes from a family of artists.  She had strong feelings about the art installation as well and it’s message.  Grace Miles added, “We did it for the love. For the people, for the land and for us. We’re artists, we make art, we’re the voice of the people, it’s what we do…“

 

    According to Greyeyes, Dine activist, artist, and student, he felt his actions were necessary because the peaks issue was very close to his heart. He wanted to inspire other people to keep standing up for the Peaks, (a sacred place to 13 different tribes). He also wanted to describe through his art: " the spirit and fight for protection of sacred Native sites is still with us.”

In recent months, twenty-eight (28) individuals have been arrested for various forms of civil disobedience. All actions of resistance have to been to halt the development (sky expansion and development related to artificial snow making) on the San Francisco Peaks.

“We’re winning!” I remember on the streets of Seattle and Prague, anarchists spray painted that same sentence on the walls, and later, watching it in some documentary, all the hardened activists smirked a little, cynical. But the possibility has returned. In fact it had never left. It’s not going to be over tomorrow, but we can win. And it depends largely on having the confidence to change history.

Have any of you ever thought of why Tiffany is always quick to answer questions on videos or TV programs? Many SONEs call her attention seeking, but think about this way.

She’s been called Manager Hwang, for her caring character. But she seems more like the mother she lost when she’s with the rest of the group. In Hello Baby, she didn’t get along well with Kyungsan, but she’s always the one who was cleaning up after the rest of them. When she held him, Kyungsan would cry and she would sulk in a corner, but fuss and worry over him from afar anyway. When she answers questions, it’s always about the group, their activities, what they’re up to. It seems like a muscle reflex to her, to always be promoting her group and pushing them forward with a rookie’s mindset. She may have done more photoshoots and acitvities in 2013 compared to what she did before, but remember before that Jessica, Taeyeon, Yoona and even Seohyun had their time to shine during their respective eras. Seohyhun and Yonghwa’s WGM segment was really popular, Yoona was CF Queen a few years in a row, and Taeyeon and Jessica have always been the main vocalists of the group. Tiffany’s just had more oppurtunities lately, and being the acknowledged workaholic she is, can you fault her for taking them? Have you ever thought that the girls have the mindset that if they do not work now, they might not have so many chances to in the future?

It's a pitty that some fandoms can't see that the group they support, weren't angry with BTS. That group won many awards and was happy about that, some of the members of group were even seen acitvely enjoying the preformances of BTS. So can some of the immature part of that fandom chill? Their favourite group clearly likes BTS enough to be chill, so wan't can't the immature people be like that?
