andy speaks for all of us

What an excellent episode

I’m really happy with this one!

Gem Harvest turned out to have a great balance of cuteness, humor, and seriousness.

I’m in love with Pumpkin, I loved the dynamic between Lapis and Peridot as like “parents”. I have mixed feelings about Uncle Andy, but his little monologue at the end gave us some perspective.

An important thing that this episode brought up within the SUverse: Steven is half human, too! I’m glad he gets to have some normal human stuff amidst all the gem war stuff.

There were some really great lines from all of the Gems, too.

Overall, I really liked it! Glad to be back in business, SU family :D

an introductory list of finland references in american tv series and movies (with links)

NB! MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!

  • Parks and Recreation S04E07: Andy plays Finland in a model of United Nations and uses all of Finland’s money to buy lions
  • The Big Bang Theory S03E12: Sheldon decides to try to learn Finnish
  • How I Met Your Mother S07E01: Ted’s miserable bestman speeches over time become a huge internet hit in Finland. In the episode, the gang watches a video on Youtube and the comments below are in Finnish (the link isn’t the episode but the video that according to the series was a hit in Finland)
  • Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home: The whale hunters speak Finnish
  • Charlie’s Angels: Alex, Dylan and Natalie speak “a secret language” aka Finnish
  • Better Call Saul S01E01: Chuck sends a letter to a professor in University of Helsinki (link is the script of the episode)
  • Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace: after the first round of the pod race, Watto apparently yells kiitos (=thank you) though to me it doesn’t sound like that at all. Fun fact: in Star Wars universe there’s also a form of martial arts called Teräs Käsi, Steel Hand in Finnish. That is grammatically incorrect, though; it should be teräskäsi
  • Earth Girls Are Easy: The aliens watch a commercial which encourages to go to Finland. Weirdly enough, they also yodel in it. Later on, Valerie comes back in and informs that Finland is the capital of Norway

Hey Neurotypicals

Stop grouping us with murderers.

Talat Pasha was Neurotypical. Joshef Mengele was Neurotypical.

A few more or less confirmed neurodivergent (specifically autistic/aspie) people:
Einstien, Mozazrt, Emily Dickinson, Alexander Graham Bell, Lovecraft, Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla, Merilyn Monroe, Beethoven, Michelangelo, Mark Twain, Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, and Robin Williams

Remember that when you try to label all the serial killers as “cr*zy” or “mentally unstable”

Remember that when you try to literally lump us with some of the most vile people in history.

Your favorite person was probably one of us.

((The list I was reading was autistic focused but neurodivergents feel free to add on other awesome neurodivergent famous ppl, not just autistics!!))

And you know what fucking pisses me off? The fact that when a black girl wears cornrows it is seen as trashy, ghetto, ratchet and etc. But when a white girl does it, it is seen as being beautiful and lovely. Black girls have a history of being thrown insults and have been subject to stereotypes of all kinds just because of what our skin color is. Hell, I have too. I absolutely applaud Amandla for her thoughts, because it is all fun and games when you can dress up and try to steal our culture from us, but when it comes to actually speaking about black issues in society, celebrities wanna stay quiet. What angers me more on this subject is that Justin Bieber and Andy Cohen defended Kylie’s actions because she is “just a kid”, but Amandla is younger than her. They didn’t see Amandla as a kid, just as some angry black women who was overreacting about something she had a right to talk about.

Richonne is a fact of life

Everyone anti should come to accept it.

Richonners, you don’t even need to defend yourselves. Let the art speak for itself. Let the art do its magic and change society, perspective and culture. Great art inspires, so Richonne is just the beginning. Still, if you want to continue to defend it, feel free, why not, but know that it is unnecessary.

Why?

Because the actors whose job it is to understand their characters Danai and Andy, but most of all Scott Gimple, the creator, already did that for us. They are the ultimate adjudicators. They determine what is real, what is true in that universe. THEY DETERMINE CANON. We’ve already won, why continue fighting?

Sure, crack ships should still continue and flower, but know and accept that you are Crack ships and you are NEVER going to happen. Although, in my experience, crack ships can be really fun, and even freeing.

It’s fun, because it’s so outside of canon it’s almost yours, that you can do anything with it on your head, and anything is possible in your imagination. It’s freeing because you’re not holding onto your seats waiting for it to happen and you can allow yourself to enjoy other parts of the show. It’s freeing because you’re not expecting it. I must admit, there was a time I thought, as I shipped Richonne these past 3 years, that it was a crack pairing and I came to peace with that. But then it happened. And the surprise, the joy!

On a more logical analysis as a writer, this is why you should not argue with Richonne: because Scott Gimple, is the god of Walking Dead (TV)’s universe. He is in control. If he says a zombie can die this way, then it can. If he says a fan favorite dies, they die. And when he makes a couple canon and explains it, goes so far to explain the whole process of planning it out and spreading these moments out over three years–you know he means it. He was basically playing Cupid. And the things he’s said aren’t spoilers so he’s not trying to sway you to think otherwise so he can shock you later on. He actually articulated defenses, reasons, explanations that were after the fact and proven. He actually went out of his way just to clarify how serious Richonne is. Arguing with the creator/the god of the universe, is like arguing that water isn’t wet. Or if you don’t believe in god, it’s like arguing with scientific laws.

This is not a fight. The judge already declared one side a winner. The sooner you accept it, the sooner things will get better. And maybe, you’ll actually even be able to appreciate it.

TLDR: arguing against Richonne is arguing with the creator.
