Hades allowed himself the faintest smile, but there was nothing cruel in his eyes.
“I can entertain the possibility that you acted for multiple reasons. My point is this: you and I rose to the aid of Olympus because you convinced me to let go of my anger. I would encourage you to do likewise. My children are so rarely happy. I … I would like to see you be an exception.”
Thanks to Johnny for making me smile, entertaining me and being the light of my life with this tour. It was a gift I really needed.
Thanks to the Hollywood Vampires for going on tour, being insanely talented, awesome and cute and bringing joy to thousands of people.
Thanks for making Johnny’s dream come true, giving him this experience and surrounding him with love and care.
Thanks to everyone that made Johnny smile during these shows, the bandmembers (especially Manson), the crowd, the bodyguards, etc.
Thanks to all the people who shared their lovely stories, pictures and videos from this tour. It was a true gift for everyone who couldn’t go.
Thanks to the security for keeping everyone safe and the staff for everything going well.
Thanks to our beautiful fandom for taking fangirling to yet another level.
Just thanks. Johnny needed this, we needed this, I needed this. Now that it’s over a lot of unpleasantness will start again/be amplified. But we have this. All the memories and videos and pictures. All the smiles and love. We got fuel to keep us going now, to get us through whatever’s ahead. And for that I am truly grateful. So thank you!
What is it about wwe and shit you actually like? (Serious question) I always thought it was awkward how overly dramatic and cheesy it was. Like its so painful for me to watch. The people who attend live wwe matches seem like fucking inbred energy drink guzzling Oakley sunglass wearing red neck idiots and you don't seem like that type of person. The whole thing just reeks of ace body spray to me. Is it just over the top entertainment to you ? Or like grandiosity or something?
check your classism at the door dude. it’s an ugly character trait. people at wrestling shows are overwhelmingly nice folks who came to have a fun time and more often than not brought their kids to watch their favorite characters. even the ones who you described as such are still there to enjoy themselves, so what
so first off, i consider wrestling a form of theater. everything about it is performance, from appearances to speaking roles to the actual wrestling. some could even argue that there’s an aspect of over-the-top gender performance too. it’s about performance because it’s about stories; it’s a medium that is couched in archetypes because it’s tried-and-true storytelling: good vs evil, poor vs rich, weak vs strong. wrestlers, the characters in these stories, are often such over-the-top characters to sell these stories; it’s supposed to be easy to figure out who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy. you see a preening, strutting prettyboy on your television screen trying to cheat against the blue collar guy who reads to sick orphans, you want to see that fucker’s pretty face punched in.
so to expound on the performance aspect of it, i never really got the “fake” knock on it because let’s face it, so is everything else on TV. you watched breaking bad to see bryan cranston as walter white, i watch WWE to see jonathan good as dean ambrose. these are people who are physically gifted athletes but also have to have the right “look,” body language, crowd connection, and they have to be decent at speaking for themselves. wrestling, by the way, is not fucking easy, no matter how “fake” it is. you regularly see people doing absolutely superhuman stunts and ridiculous physical interactions with one another while minimizing the actual damage. that’s impressive in its own right.
if you find a character that you connect to as a viewer, you start to enjoy little things about how they do what they do and become invested in their stories in the long run. just last night i had a genuinely emotional moment watching a performer i’ve enjoyed watching for some time win her first major championship. yes, it was predetermined, but this is someone who was a wrestling fan herself as a child and set out to accomplish exactly this, and that’s immensely relatable and something you can take pride in as a viewer. it’s all sort of like a soap opera, in that there are stories contained within it that you can drop into at any time, but it never really ends.
on top of that, wrestling, as a business, knows deep down it is inherently ridiculous. it’s a medium that can have fun with itself or play the most insane things with a completely straight face. just last night on Raw a wrestler wandered into the ring during someone else’s match because he was distracted playing pokemon go. on the other hand, a few weeks ago they showed a brawl on a farm between a faction of trombone-honking unicorn enthusiasts who constantly make cum jokes and a backwoods swamp cult, and they played it off like it was gravely serious. hulk hogan was ridiculous. macho man randy savage was ridiculous. the ultimate warrior was literally insane. but what made it work was that they were fully committed to it.
and back to what you had to say about the crowds, they’re actually a hugely important part of it. audience reaction is everything, and it’s a huge part of the fun. a performer who can connect with a crowd, whether as a hero or as a villain, is one who is doing their job. one that can’t garner a reaction at all is dead in the water. crowds will cheer or boo as needed, they’ll chant for their favorites as they get on a roll or find themselves in a bind. crowds will make up chants and songs and bring signs. it’s significantly more interactive than any of the “real” sports you see on tv, and that’s what keeps people coming back. if it was just two dudes duking it out in a TV studio, it would be boring as hell and nobody would watch. it’s always been about the audience.
anyway i’m not sure if i answered the question for you because it seems like you already had an answer, but that’s my seventeen cents about why i enjoy wrestling
1:I love it when I meet a kpop fan in real life (its like the best thing ever when you don’t expect someone to be a k-pop fan)
2: I’m a very cool person and talkative, but I get dead ass quiet when I see a new face…idk its weird and I will be very silent even on the internet I wanna get to know my followers but anxiety takes over and I say never-mind (no pun intended)
3: I’ve been a K-Pop fan since middle school ( around the time 4 Minute debut so i’ve liked K-Pop back when it wasn’t even international yet or relevant.)
4: I’m a Persona Hoe (Like I watched my bro play Persona 3 so I grew up liking the Persona Series can’t wait until P5 comes out next year.)
5: I listen to any music besides Country (sorry but not my style)
6: I’m a black person with no slang or street knowledge once so ever (I got picked on in elementary and middle school because of me so called not being black enough or talked too proper) Good thing my HS years was better cause I moved to a different district so its all good ^_^
7: I HATE SNAKEU!!!! WITH ALL OF MY SOUL I CAN’T STAND THOSE SHITS THEY CREEP ME OUT! So when mv’s like (VIXX-Hyde,Beast-Shadow, and EXO- Monster) had snakes in them depending on how big the snake is I will scroll down and wait until its gone and finish the music video T_T
8: I dislike arrogant,rude, and bitchy people like that is not cute and that’s a good way to piss me off >:(
9:I’m going through a bias face off between 3 people (Rap Monster,Jimin,and J-Hope) Hard to stay faithful to Namjoon when J-Hope and Jimin just…grrr *crys*
10:I’m an anime fan…not as hardcore as I am with k-pop but I do my best to keep up
11:I read yaoi…haha this isn’t a surprise to the people that know me if you write fanfics with ships of k-pop idols let me know and i’ll read it *thumbs up*
12:I LOVE PANDAS!!! You can buy me panda anything and im happy af ;D
13: I draw but don’t post alot of art stuff which was the reason I made a Tumblr in the first place =_= but I need to start posting my drawings
Dear Ghostfruits, My girlfriend doesn't understand why I find you so entertaining. What do I do? Sincerely, Alien in Arizona.
hey like deadass this is gonna sound super fake and diversionary but i tried for a real long time to rock w this, i really did wanna participate in this like, thing, here, but my hands just kept wanting me to type shit abt gucci mane. this isnt me tryna joke, this is me failing to keep this joke afloat and now being forced to let you behind the curtain. i wrote out like 3 different versions of an answer to this and allllll of them circled back to real guwop-centric content and i just like really dont think thats what you were looking for but its all i have to offer you. im sorry. did you know hes saying he can walk on jupiter now. its honestly the tightest shit ive ever seen
(+8267, -206) Plot development and immersion just give you goosebumps… Really entertaining ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
(+6640, -263) When Han Hyo Joo kept checking if she appeared or not it was so cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
(+6339, -196) Wow today was really so interesting ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ I didn’t even know it when a whole hour passed and the preview was amazing ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ Lee Jong Suk’s wink ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ Kiss ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ Thank you ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ
(+5814, -180) A one-hour drama that feels like ten minutes
(+5013, -187) Wow… This drama has got more than just an idea… It just moves along at such a pace… Kang Chul is moving the webtoon story by himself in order to avenge his parents… Even if he shot her, Oh Yeon Joo didn’t get die, perhaps because the 2-dimensional Kang Chil cannot cause damage to the 3-dimensional Oh Yeon Joo since they are in different dimensions… Kang Chul doesn’t realise he is from the 2-dimensional world (since there is no soul in the 2-d world), so he thinks Oh Yeon Joo is from a parallel dimension… but in the first place, why does Oh Sung Moo have the ability to create a parallel world… Oh but Kang Chul ah… if Yeon Joo is a just a warm woman (T/N: means not very pretty but nice-looking and easy to develop affections) then who can be called a beauty?
(+1834, -57) You’re not married, that’s good. What’s that? ㅠㅠㅠ Lee Jong Suk is really heart-fluttering
(+1749, -36) Actually when Lee Jong Suk shot Han Hyo Joo, I really thought she would disappear, but that didn’t happen… anyways, really looking forward to what comes next
(+1665, -37) It may not be in the future, but I said you were the key of my life… I got goosebumps then
(+1636, -38) I love you ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ No that’s not it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
(+1498, -31) So she’s going to say that this is in the manhwa… Looking forward to tomorrow
(+1464, -37) Does this mean Lee Jong Suk is now going to go to the real world
(+1450, -42) Wow, in the end when Lee Jong Suk was flirting, shaking my heartㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I waited a whole week but why does one hour pass in a flash?
(+1342, -26) I wish there would be a happy ending for this drama… I hope that when they fall for each other, it won’t be that they are stuck in separate worlds and can’t be together
Went through and deleted my lil rants and stuff, hating on some little girls from twitter is so lame. Like shit I have a job and have to worry about college, and I like to come on here to have fun. Which is something I think we should all do. We all love Calvin and if you still think the whole Keem thing was serious, it wasn’t. It was a joke to make people laugh and not focus on hate.
Now regarding Calvin’s video, It was such a good video and I’m glad he’s using his platform to defend others. I’m proud of the leaf man. I laughed and genuinely learned from the video. It’s crazy how far he’s come.
Now, if anything else blows up, just ignore it. Simple as that. Just act like you never saw it and move on.
I was wanting to add them to my blog, but if no one watched WWE, it’s be pointless. Yes, I do realize I’m a dork because I watch it, yes, I know it’s fake, but it’s entertaining, so yeah. Tell me what’d you think, should I add them, if no one responds, I’M DOING IT!!!
Who's your hummingbird buddy!? I just want to say that I love how chatty you are, like your tags are always entertaining and idk, I just feel like you're such a beautiful person with the way you put yourself across on here 😘
Okay, here we go.
Last weekend, I’m going about my usual and I have this big window to the left of where I usually sit on my bed that has a view outside of the apartment, like I have a few bushes out there and a tree right next to the walkway that leads to the street on the other side of the tall wall blocking most of my view, it’d make more sense if I just took a picture but I’m lazy.
Anyway, last weekend I happened to look out the window because some movement caught my eye and I see this small hummingbird sitting on this skinny branch on the pathetic excuse of a bush sitting closest to my window and she’s small, like probably not even full-grown. I was a little amazed about the fact out of everywhere to have landed, she chooses to land right there.
I know she’s a female because she doesn’t have any of the fancy coloring. She’s light grey and brown.
Now, I thought she’d be there for a second and it’s one of those chance things that happens. No. She sat there for two hours. She took a nap, preened herself, sat and looked around, and this whole time she can see me moving around–like I go up to the window and she turns her head and looks at me, but doesn’t fly away.
She comes back multiple times that day and lands in the same spot for twenty minutes to a few hours.
She’s been doing this for over a week and right now she’s there, scratching herself with her little foot and stretching her little wings. I’ve named her Joy (because that’s what hummingbirds represent spiritually) and my younger brother is pressed up against the window watching her.
