after 30 years!

As someone who, overall, enjoyed fantastic beasts, it really causes a lot of issues for the worldbuilding

I think fantastic beasts really highlights a flaw in jkrs writing. Mainly, how the rules for her world really only work if you consider white people, and totally fall apart when you consider the same world from anyone else’s point of view.

The idea that in america you can have 0 contact with no-majs is fine, if 1. Everyone is white and/or 2. Magic is entirely hereditary. But neither or those ia true.

The movie takes place, what 60 years after slavery was abolished? What happened when a wizard was born a slave? Were they left to form an obsurial? (No, they say there hadnt been one for centuries in america) were they whisked away to the magical world and expected to leave their relatives to rot in slavery?

The movie takes place 30 years after the wounded knee massacre. What about magical children born in native communities? Are they invited to ilvermony? Do they let their communities be butchered?

What will happen in less than 20 years when japanese internment camps begin? Will witches and wizards of Japanese heritage just pack up and go to the camps too? Will they go into hiding and leave their potentially nonmagical families?

Jk seems content to act as though the Wizarding world has no racsim and instead uses magic vs nomaj tensions as an allegory. But that doesnt work when you have muggle born wizards who would be affected by racism in the nonmagical world.

And i dont think jk has ever even considered this. And it shows.

after the law that the romanian government passed 3 days ago (which as i said in my last post, would effectively make corruption legal (if under 45k euros, good joke) and would pardon everyone who previously got arrested for it) , thousands upon thousands of people went out in the streets to protest, making this the largest protest romania’s had since the 1989 revolution

it hasnt even been 30 years, i really hope we can stop it here and now

This Man Is Reunited With His Twin 30 Years After Being Separated

The iconic home from ‘Full House’ was bought by the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, 30 years after the first episode was filmed. When it came on the market, he knew he had to buy it and keep it in the family. He also wanted to 'preserve it for the fans’, so he re-painted the door red, used it to film new episodes for the debut of 'Fuller House’, and plans to keep it as a rental. Source

¿Quién es Sombra? A character analysis (Overwatch)

Originally posted by daftprodigy

So I’ve been watching the reveal of Sombra over and over again (as ya do), and I couldn’t help but notice some details that say a lot about her personality, worldview, and just how fucked up of a character she is. In the brief time we’ve seen her, Blizzard has already developed her into one of the most fleshed-out characters in all of Overwatch. Piecing together details from her short and her backstory video, we can begin to get a fairly clear picture of how she thinks. And needless to say, it’s very interesting, fucked up, and in a way, kind of tragic.

More below the cut. It’s a really long post, so be warned.

Ford Safety Week Day 7: Ford and his whole family <3

Headcanon: Ford is QUITE STRONG after 30 years surviving in other dimensions! Usually he keeps it on the down-low because he wants to let Stan still be “the strong twin,” but when it comes to being overjoyed about his family, sometimes an extreme, lift-4-people-off-the-ground-at-once group hug is required :)

Fiddleford is here because family doesn’t only mean blood relatives, and I think these are the 4 people he cares about the most <3

It’s literally 5:30 in the morning what is wrong with me .;T

songs to listen to when you’re sad, for real

Scatman John had a brutal speech impediment that ruined his day-to-day interactions and destroyed his self-confidence so badly that he turned to the piano as the only way he could express himself. While others around him knew that he was an accomplished singer and a student of the “scat” style of singing, Scatman John was content to linger in the background of more accomplished singers for the rest of his life… until he was forced to sing when his frontman caught a cold.

Scatman John was terrified that, since he was unable to speak coherently, he would be unable to sing coherently. But, 30 years after he began performing wordlessly in public, he found himself to be a natural and smooth singer. A music producer took note of the Scatman and offered him a deal, but only if he was willing to play along with the modern trends of the time. A strictly classical jazz pianist, Scatman John reluctantly accepted.

He was a natural. Scatman John never believed that he could connect to a generation so much younger than his own, but found himself speechless when he realized that he was standing in front of a crowd of thousands of European teenagers. Even though he only had two hits in Europe and the Americas, he had managed to bridge the gap between his era and the ‘90s and, all the while, preached messages of encouragement to anyone struggling with a disability.

After his star faded, Scatman happily continued his career in Japan. Even when he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, the Scatman refused to slow down. He knew that, against seemingly impossible odds, he had overcome with flying colors and had seen true beauty. 

Although Scatman John was a fad in most of the world, he had managed to incorporate his love of jazz with the newfangled world of techno and, in doing so, gain an appreciation of how the ‘90s youth thought and what music they liked to listen to. He overcame his speech impediment through the power of music after literal decades of obscurity and spread his message of positivity as loud and clear as he could possibly muster, across languages, until his peaceful death.

Scatman John, we salute you.

Finally got around to drawing my Moon team! We’re starting out with Senketsu (yes, laugh all you want fasdljg) and André!

Senketsu (Sen, for short) is the owner of a pawn shop in Konikoni City who collects watches and clocks as a hobby! André works in the shop with Sen and is also a former trial captain whom Sen idolized when they were younger. Like…Sen was his biggest fan.

Even after 30 years of being married to André, he still takes the chance to take photos like this to remember the good ol’ days as a fanboy. André doesn’t mind at all and finds this adorable.

Yes, the receptionist robot from the original Namco Museum games is real! Her name is Uketsuke Komachi, and she was built by Namco in 1985. 30 years after her creation, she’s still around! Nowadays, she can be found in the Namco-Bandai offices in Shinagawa, Tokyo.

Rey, FN-2187 and General Dameron served as the commanding triumvirate for the First Order and their Starkiller Base operation under Supreme Leader Snoke. During the First Order–Resistance conflict, which took place 30 years after the Battle of Endor, the triumvirate defeated the rebellious Resistance and brought the First Order to every corner of the galaxy, ensuring that Supreme Leader Snoke’s vision for the universe came to fruition.

I'd like to think that Star's mind was thinking something like "I've got 16 years to make this dork mine" after seeing Marco's 30 year old self.

Then Marco grows up in Earth’s timeline as well and becomes… an average looking guy, by no means bad-looking, but far from being the buff-beast that Star saw 16 years earlier. He’s not stupid and knows that Star really “enjoyed the view” back in Heckapoo’s dimension, luckily the princess doesn’t care because and reminds him that she fell in love with him, not with his abs.

This quick, cheesy, unnecessary starco trash has been powered by me.

Nissan Patrol Fanta Limon Paris-Dakar rally car, 1987. After 30 years, Nissan has brought one of its iconic motorsport machines back to life. It took victory in the diesel category, and was the first diesel car to ever finish in the race’s overall top 10, taking 9th spot. The original car, in a much deteriorated state, was discovered in a Spanish motor museum and has been restored thanks to a dedicated team of engineers at Nissan’s European Technical Centre in Barcelona. For over two years they have worked on the car after work and at weekends, turning it from a rusting wreck back into a capable off-road racer

“Wilson, who died in 2005, believed that all art was political, so there’s a certain melancholy in the audience when they realize that the racial conditions and conflicts that so profoundly affect the Maxson family during the 1950s still exist today. Fences was first produced onstage in 1983 but is set 30 years earlier so the 1980s audience could better understand how little had changed in those three decades. Now here we are 30 years after that first production, 60 years after the play’s setting, still frustratingly aware that black Americans are stuck on the social and political treadmill while those more privileged race past them. The recent election of Donald Trump seems like an endorsement of the racism, misogyny, homophobia and xenophobia that made the 1950s such a symbol of Happy Days nostalgia for whites and of humiliating repression for blacks and other marginalized people. One of the most powerful effects of the movie is to humanize this struggle and to inspire Americans to dismantle this tyrannical cycle.”

I just can’t believe Eleanor agreed to this again. How mortifying! Did she even think about how it would look?
