i’m in love with these two and i need to be stopped

Let us also hate the smaller details of the Pepsi ad

Everything about the new Pepsi ad is repugnant and insulting, okay? The two supporting characters to Kendall Jenner’s lead role are (A) a hipster cellist who beckons her to join a “protest” and (B) a hijab-wearing photographer whose moment of triumph is capturing a celebutante model hand a cop a can of soda. The cumulative effort is the single most repellent video I’ve seen since I watched an actual beheading.

But! Let’s not get bogged down in think-piece territory. There are lots of LITTLE things to hate about the video, too. And we should appreciate every terrible detail.

“Join the conversation” is a blank-box social media prompt. It is not something you would put on a sign for a public demonstration, even if that public demonstration were for something as nebulous and inoffensive as LOVE or PEACE. 

“Hey, you coming to the peace rally?”

“Yup, got my Join the conversation sign and some cans of soda.”

“Perfect, that is everything you need for a protest in free democracy.”

WHO MADE THESE SIGNS?

It started as a circle with a line through it, but there doesn’t appear to be anything inside the circle, because the people who made this commercial couldn’t take the chance of being actually AGAINST anything, even if they were going to slap a heart over it to show that love conquers all. 

NO HATE? Whoa, slow down! We’re pro-love, but we’re not anti-anything. Nazis can love, you know. And they deserve the fresh taste of Pepsi as much as the woke millennials whose business we so desperately crave.”

WTF? “JoTin The conversation”? Hey, the milquetoast invitation for discourse wasn’t half-assed enough, let’s shittify it an extra 15% with a nonsensical design flourish.

“Hey man, made that LOVE sign you wanted.”

“Looks like the lettering was too small the first time so you painted over it and gave it another go.”

“Correct.”

“And the second time was also not large enough to fill the sign.”

“Listen, I didn’t have all day.”

Bullshit fucking fake-ass spacious protest. “We’re marching for peace … and elbow room!”

AD EXEC 1: Y’know, not ALL young people like protesting. Can some of them just be, like, eating pizza?

AD EXEC 2: Should they get up and join the protesters? It doesn’t really fit with Kendall’s narrative.

AD EXEC 1: Fuck no, they’ve got pizza. 

Kendall Jenner’s mind is blown as she sees middle-class people for the first time! 

KENDALL: Ew, what’s that smell?

PA: I believe that’s a mix of debt and diplomas.

KENDALL: What and what?

OH SNAP. Kendall has shed the artifice of wig and lipstick to join the FIGHT to, uh, join a discussion about love? I feel so empowered! And thirsty!

Welcome to the protest! Everyone’s marching with plenty of space on a pleasant day in Los Angeles, but we have a hydration station that may or may not dehydrate you (the science is still kinda iffy, don’t look it up).

What’ll it be? We have Pepsi, Silver Pepsi, Pepsi Blakk, and Pepsi in bottles. Just some ice chips? Okay, but they’re not water. 100% Crystal Pepsi.

Step back from this article for a second, dear reader. Place aside your immediate thoughts of the protester-police unity achieved by Kendall Jenner giving a handsome cop a Pepsi (even though there wasn’t tension between the crowd and the cops before this, because that would have taken some sort of narrative risk). Table, if just for a moment, the emotional and political flashpoints of Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, the Women’s March on Washington, conspiracy theories about paid protesters, and the increasingly fraught existence of basically everyone in America except for a small percentage of exceedingly wealthy people.

Consider, instead, the marketing team behind this. This was born in a brainstorming session, or perhaps in an executive’s mind as he watched a throng of angry, desperate people stand up for what they believe is right. This is a branding opportunity, someone thought, fanning the flames of a garbage can fire in Rome. 

If I can give Pepsi any credit here, it’s the notion that a pretty white girl born into money and fame is the best person to bridge the gap between protesters and police. We could have really used her in Ferguson. 

I’m sure she was busy.

Yeah, totally. Join the conversation.

In which I return with Ed dressed in military uniform and half ponytail…

I thought of a scene where Ed is facing some bad guys in which one of them is actually an alchemist, but Ed doesn’t even flinch when said alchemist manages to injure him. 

The soldiers that came with Ed are both very surprised and in awe with the young Colonel’s, steel balls, courage and stand back watching with wide eyes.

I also managed to ruin the picture by drawing the background, but what the heck, it’s done.

Hope you guys enjoy~!

It is the Council’s opinion that padawan Ahsoka Tano has committed sedition against the Republic, and thus, she will be expelled from the Jedi Order.

Is the Honeymoon Over Already?!?

Geesh. We got one happy episode before Claire started regretting her decision to return. (She never did that in the book BTW).

We got one happy episode before Jamie devolved into a sociopath who could look into the worried eyes of his oldest friend and lie to him about the whereabouts of Young Ian.

We got one happy episode before Claire is regretting her decision to return to Jamie (also, never happened in the book) and Jamie compares his own long last daughter to the “whooors” that he is living with. WTF?!?

We laughed softly together, and then were quiet, listening to each other breathe. “Jamie,” I said softly at last, smoothing the back of his head, “I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy.”

He rolled to one side, shifting his weight carefully so as not to squash me, and lifted himself to lie face-to-face with me. “Nor me, my Sassenach,” he said, and kissed me, very lightly, but lingering, so that I had time just to close my lips in a tiny bite on the fullness of his lower lip.

Is it really too much to ask that the couple whose undying devotion to one another is the the center of the entire series, actually act like they love one another? I really don’t understand some of the choices they make on this show. 👻🎃👻

anonymous asked:

wait, what's the difference between Cassian's real age and the age they say he is?

I’m assuming this is in response to my tags about the amazing @notbecauseofvictories thing I reblogged about Cassian and Mon Mothma, because I vaguely remember typing something like that, but it might not have been; regardless, if anyone reading this diatribe hasn’t read it, they should go do that. 

Diego Luna is 36. 37 now. Born in 1979, just like me. Look at him, look at his face as he plays Cassian; he has creases around his eyes and the bones of his face are sharp in a way they weren’t when Diego Luna was in his mid-20s. He’s beautiful, he’s not young, he’s weathered and sharp and his life is engraved on his face. He’s not old, but he’s not young. I can’t find the still I want: it’s when Jyn has the blaster and he tells her to give it to him, and she slyly says “Trust goes both ways” and he stares at her for a moment. Every minute he has lived shows in his face in that shot, every moment of pure agonizing bullshit he has ever weathered is just right there to see, and it’s fucking amazing. It’s like a half-second acting clinic in Having A Face While Being In Your Late Thirties And Having Seen Some Shit. It’s absolutely what I wish I could do with my face. (I can’t. I have zits and wrinkles at the same time. No one takes me seriously, I get carded for booze, and I’m also old enough to be invisible. it’s amazing.) I can’t find it, so have this still instead. 

According to Wookieepedia and various promotional materials, Cassian Andor is 26.

It’s not… impossible… for a man of 26 to look like that but… why… 

I’ve just done the Extra™ thing and looked up what Diego looked like when he was 26.

As someone of Diego’s actual age, I feel like that matters. I understand, Cassian would lead a more weathering life than Diego presumably has (I actually don’t really know his RL business but I’m assuming it involved a lot less murder and espionage, and I’m super sorry if that’s an incorrect assumption, but come on Diego is a human sunshine muffin I’m not drawing this out of thin air here).

He’s still not a baby in this photo, of course. He has lines around his eyes, a little bit. Probably if he were frowning his forehead would have some of that crease in it that Cassian has in every frame (because he is frowning in every frame, but, you know). But his cheekbones are still smoothly hidden under softness, there are no hollows above his jaw, he’s soft and smooth and pretty and it doesn’t take anything away, he just doesn’t have as many lived moments in his face to turn wearily on Jyn and visibly decide that he just has no fucks left to give over whether she shoots him or not.

Anyway! A bunch of us writer types were sort of just assuming that Cassian was played by an actor about his age, and have constructed headcanons accordingly, and they are way more interesting headcanons I think than him being a murder baby! It’s the sort of thing, I admit, that at 26 I would have been like “what does it matter” but now that I am 37 I am like “no it matters a bunch, honey”. 

ALSO FELICITY JONES is 33 and I was SO EXCITED that they had a heroine over 30 but NO, Jyn is supposed to be like 20 or whatever, WTF. WTF! WTF! Ugh. COME ON, LET WOMEN AGE. It’s bad enough the only women in star wars have to be under five-three and brunette with large eyes and wide mouths but now they also have to be under 30 whether or not their actress is. (CARRIE FISHER WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME.)

Obviously the casting people weren’t really thinking “not every adventure has to happen to Very Young Adults” which is what I was so excited about, they were thinking “These Hot Young People Should Be Played By Hot Slightly-Older People Because Adventure Makes You Look Slightly Older Than You Are”, which is bullshit

Guess who is in Canada?

Thats right, me.

Also, I got lost trying to walk to Edmonton Mall, and have managed to get a stoter of a headache due to the jetlag, the fact I don’t know how to cross these bloody roads and general low level freaking out about being on my own.

Things I have found that have made me go…. hmmmm

  1. Licence plates only on the back of cars. Weird.
  2. Jiffy Lube. I’m dying.
  3. Forever 21 isn’t as bad as everyone made out, I got a top (that was sold as a dress but… unless you are like, 5′0 it’s a top) and a pair of shorts. Some of it was dire - I saw a lot of mesh.
  4. The Disney Store doesnt have any Canadian themed toys. WTF? 
  5. Sales people are SO DAMN CHIPPER. Like, I went into loads of stores and within about 2 seconds of me stepping over the door there was a lovely, bright young thing asking me how I was doing, and if I needed anything, and omg aren’t your shoes just the coolest? Please, I don’t even know what this store SELLS yet, give me 5 minutes. Also, yes, they are awesome, and black glittery, and I don’t think you guys can get them over here because New Look?
  6. I don’t know how the pedestrian road crossings work. Like, I get the fact that the hand means stop and the white walker means go, but like… whats the flashy hand mean? Why are your roads so fucking WIDE? My brain keeps thinking I’m trying to cross a motorway and my legs do not want to step out onto the road because of death.
  7. You drive on the wrong side of the road. I know, I know… it’s a thing. But it’s enough of a thing that it makes me super confused about how not to die as a pedestrian. 
  8. Every second car is a pick-up truck. SUV, Truck, Car, Truck, SUV, People Carrier, Truck. Is this how Texas is? I thought I was in Edmonton! 
  9. I saw a magpie (just the same as the ones at home) and a squirrel - also just the same. I dunno what I was expecting, but I saluted the Magpie just incase. You never know. 
  10. Apparently there is something interesting about this year and it being 150 years of something. Because loads of shops had t-shirts with 150 on them. 
  11. No duvets - just quilts. 
  12. Complete lack of Moose and Moose themed items. Considering that this was going to be like…90% of my holiday gifts for folk back home, it’s put a spanner in the works. 
  13. I got a Cesar salad and it was iceberg drenched in sauce. Just iceberg. Not sure if it was the crappy hotel restaurant or if this is normal. 
  14. I’m holding off getting a Tim Hortons until @m0th3rw4r gets here so I can experience Canadiana with a Canadian. 
  15. I saw a Hooters! 
  16. I was in the country for all of 15 seconds before I saw a hockey stick. Thank you for not disappointing, Edmonton Airport. 

anonymous asked:

Could you sum up the issues you have with Loro Parque / provide any documents which are worthwhile to someone who hopes to expand their knowledge of the facility? Thank you

Sure thing.

This is only about the orca stuff, I honestly don’t know much about the rest of the facility.   

1) Whatever one’s opinions of the Free Morgan Foundation, the two extensive articles they’ve produced regarding observed conditions of the orcas are extremely detailed and well-supported. One was written in 2012, mainly about Morgan, x, the other in 2016 x. Between reports like that (with the visible, extensive destruction of dentition) and the videos online (ranging from the wildly viral “suicidal orca” or Morgan bashing the gate, to one to the lesser ones of obvious harassment where people are told the orcas are ‘playing’), it is difficult to form a positive opinion of things there. The only non-negative opinions I’ve ever seen in regard to the animals’ welfare come from hard-line procaptivity folk or Loro Parque itself - and like Seaworld, Loro Parque plays the lying game. FMF has a page with some of this incongruous information made available. x

2) Related whales were sent there on a breeding loan. Tekoa, Skyla, and Kohana all share a father - Tillikum. Keto and Skyla share a mother - Kalina. Exactly what kind of breeding situation were they hoping to set up? The quote from Fred Jacobs regarding that the arrangement was “conceived primarily as a breeding loan” comes from this article. 

3) There’s a whole ugly chapter about Loro Parque in Death at Seaworld. It’s unfortunately not all available online but parts are.  

4) Mentioned in the above but extensively damning all on its own, is this stack of observations by a former employee who was frequently around the stadium. There were problems from the beginning. Though I’m sure some experience has been gained over the years, I doubt the fundamental issues that led to the described situations have evaporated. Especially now with ownership of the orcas going to Loro Parque solely, I seriously doubt the direction things go will be positive.

4-as-a-disturbing-aside) Loro Parque made this blog post (link goes to my post about their post) that seems to strongly indicate they didn’t even read what they were supposedly griping about. This is related to point 4 in that, company-culture wise, this is an official communication from an “authority” - do we really want to be accepting as trustworthy, information from an entity that behaves this way and apparently can’t be bothered to pay attention?

5) Morgan. They seem to want to breed Morgan. 

6) Like Seaworld, Loro Parque plays the “but orca research for conservation” card. Like Seaworld, there’s little that actually backs that up. There has been some research done there, sure… (after all, that was their excuse for bringing in Morgan) but its value to conservation ranges from dubious to WTF.    

For what it’s worth: I’m not the sort who thinks Morgan/etc can be “freed.” I don’t really know what’s a good option for those poor animals besides “not there.”

I also don’t approve of FMF downplaying the issues with Morgan’s hearing. That isn’t what this post is about so I won’t go into it, but many of their other materials are well-supported and very worthwhile.

So tl;dr: LP’s orca setup is like the young, clumsy cousin of Seaworld’s. They engage in the same song and dance, but their orca look much worse-off. They also seem to not prioritize human welfare either, which isn’t cool.

Sofia "is a mom" and Oswald as we know had faith only in Gertrud. Oswald doesn't look at sofia like a girlfriend but like a mom. And she knows it, she's a fox. With Jim she's half dressed always trying to use her body (that sexual tension) with Oswald she's totally different: full dressed and innocent SHE HAS CURLY HAIR! the dress is full of flowers and those gloves, she perfectly knows what she's doing. There's no sexual thing between Sofia and Oswald because she knows it doesn't work with him.

All the yes!! I wrote my thought yesterday too like this is totally seem to going the Liza way. I like how smart she is and really see how to get to other people, that sex isn’t working for all guys, it ofc works for jimseypeynis but not ozzie. I don’t know if she meant to try at first, it wasn’t as implied as with jim. But when she went into his office and asked for lunch, she did walk up to him and touched him and Oswald looked so confused and just wtf, maybe then she realized like oh yeah he is no jeyseypenis like jimbo obvs, should have seen that coming. And then she took the Liza card. A trivial note is that she looked very much like Selene’s young Gertrude in her outfit and hair! I mean the writers and cast are very aware of Selene’s stuff heh so who knows ;).

Wouldn’t surprise me if she goes blondie soon and also will “discretely” sing the fire has gone out wet from snow above… lurking out every weak detail about Oswald, sniff. And he will fall for it like always. But then he will ofc get revenge later, the usual Oswald way. Ugh I just wish he could get some love :( At the same time with both Ed and Ivy he fucked up and treated them really bad. But ugh I still wish him just genuine love again. 

So… I just randomly watched Christmas Cottage on Sunday because Jared Padalecki [and because of @coralturtlenut and the Jared gif ‘war’ we’re having which I’m loving the hell out of and keeps making my day], and wtf?? It’s such a sad, cute, adorable, wholesome movie?? Like, I cried a little bit, but it was also funny, so it balances out into a possible new favorite Christmas movie?

And JARED, uh, THOMAS IS SO CUTE AND FLUFFY AND HIS HAIR. LOOK AT HIS HAIR. IT’S SO SHORT AND FLUFFY AND PUPPYISH (and even more S1/S2-esque than Clay Miller’s in Friday the 13th)!!!!

i can already tell i’m going to be one salty motherfucker the entire time my sister liz is pregnant..

I hate the entire culture??? around pregnancy, like when relatives expectantly look at newlywed brides like “so….. when are you having a baby?~”
when she and her spouse feel like having a kid IF they feel like having a kid, aunt susan. mind your fucking business.
no one should have a kid based off of the wants of relatives

and i also hate people who like babies because of the ‘new baby smell’
like…. get away from me????

another thing about pregnancy that pisses me off is people looking at young girls like “i can’t wait for you to have kids”
you are talking to a child, about them having a child. wtf is wrong with those people??

don’t assume because a human is born with the parts to make/carry new life that they want to use it.

people need to stop being baby crazy.

okay so I just went onto Harry Potter Wiki and it says that Tina was born in 1901 (it also says that Percival Graves was born pre 1909 ) and that Seraphina Picquery was born in 1903. Okay???? (I always thought Picquery was older but anyway. 

Newt was born in 1897, so he’s older than Percival……

Also it says on HP Wikia, that Seraphina Picquery ended president term in 1928 but beside her birthdate it says 1928. 

So does Seraphina get killed off or something like?????

Caught at Lord and Taylor!

Omg! Bitches I got caught!! Wtf!! Okay so me and my lifting buddy were at Lord and Taylor, we go to two locations near us all the time and never ever have a problem there. It’s so easy for us at the locations we normally go to, but today we went to a diff one and just fucking assumed it’d be easy. Nope wrong. I grabbed a Fitbit that I’ve been wanting for so long, detagged on the floor and slipped the sensor into some jeans I was holding once I got in the dressing room. I thought I was being totally stealthy and shit I didn’t see any cameras, I wasn’t being dumb or anything and I know that there was nobody around who saw me. So anyways I keep on shopping with my friend, she also had a Fitbit in her bag and I detagged it for her at the same time I did mine. But we were looking around because she needed some jeans and I wanted a pair too and these two guys walked up to us and they weren’t in uniform and they seemed relatively young so I thought they were just dudes trying to talk to two girls. The taller one came up to me with a big smile on his face and said “hey ladies how’s it going?” And I kinda shrug smiled back like uh wtf I’m fine? And then his smile just totally disappears and he says “okay show me where you put the Fitbit.” And I’m not stupid I wasn’t tryna play no games w this dude he was big and scary as fuck so I just pulled it out and started crying saying “I’m so sorry I’ve never done anything like this before it was just untagged and I really wanted it I’m so sorry I’m so stupid I can’t believe I did that” and he wasn’t having any of my shit he just said “do u have anything else in ur bag” and thank fuck I didn’t because if I did I probably would’ve taken it out because I was scared out of my mind but I said no and he just replied with “okay why don’t you two get out of here. Like now. Right now.” So we left and got out and walked sooo far away before sitting down and taking a breath. Scariest 30 seconds of my life Jesus fuck. I’m just glad they were really nice about it and didn’t take me back or search my bags or call my parents. They didn’t even ask for my name or anything. Moral of the story, DONT ASSUME EVERY LOCATION IS GOING TO HAVE THE SAME POLICIES / IS GOING TO BE EASY BECAUSE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT GAME PLAN DEPENDING ON WHERE THEY ARE DONT FUCK UP BITCHES.

NARUTO ENDING

ima just go and stab myself in the face and heart. brb

also wtf kakashi where is your face.

also those kids tho…wtf.

sauce, your hair. what the hell. 

naruto looks perfect, like DAMN.

but seriously, those stupid kids. ugh. they all look too young still to have 10 year old kids. 

idk how i feel about this……………..

i’ve been crying. 15 years is a long time for anything especially a manga.

i feel like i know naruto personally, as like a friend or something. so to me, it’s not really over, as cheesy as that may sound.

my heart is still hurting tho.

<3

Okay so in light of this obvious as fuck whitewashing in the casting of the Ghost in the Shell movie Ive been seeing some bullshit ass comments about how the characters “dont look asian in the animation”….. and thats just….. such garbage honesty??

Like holy fuck its a cartoon its animated people make stylistic choices! Do the character in fuckin ED Edd and Eddy LOOK white? no they dont and in fact they arent really comparable to any real life human at all AND YET any logical person can use context clues to infer that they are young white boys living in America. 

I am sooo beyond over people pretending that its somehow unreasonable to recognize that characters who speak japanese, have japanese names and actually DO look japanese are in fact japanese LIKE??? Sorry that not every character who has a similar skin tone to u is the same ethnicity as u. Also wtf stereotypes do these ppl have in their heads when they imagine japanese ppl cuz like..? Its not like its a hidden plot device like these characters are pretty obviously japanese its not subtle

Anyways hollywood is racist and so are anime fans i guess thats not really news anymore but w/e

Phil Lester fucks me up because

•He’s so fucking cute, he’s a freaking ray of sunshine.
•But he’s also super hot. Like TOO HOT dammit
•And he’s almost 30. How the fuck?!!
•But he looks so young and fluffy and innocent
•He is kinda shy and quiet. So pretty
•But he’s also very funny and has strong opinions
•He’s a human contradiction.
