at least a nomination

I know VIXX will never win anything from MNET but for crying out loud, the boys made THREE comebacks this year and yet they weren’t even nominated for Artist of the Year at MAMA awards, while rookies who debuted literally six minutes ago were nominated. Doesn’t VIXX deserve at least a nomination??

unpaid internships are oppressive and should be illegal i’m not being cute or funny they are 100% designed to reward people with greater access to resources and i’m fundamentally opposed to hiring for unpaid labor every internship should be required to provide at least a nominal stipend

The Malfoy Family took off for the continent before enough of the dust cleared for the good guys–whoever they were–to start asking questions or decide what, exactly, ought to become of them.

It took about a week for Draco’s head to get all its thoughts lined up again and get a handle on just what the hell has become of his life in the past…

Month?  Year?  Decade?  His entire life up until this point, basically?  Every moment that ever led up to his existence going back all the way to the very first Malfoys running Muggle-hunts over the moors?

Well.  Yes, that, but also and more importantly: he and his entire family were at least nominally fugitives, and they’d left the better part of all their worldly possessions back in England.  Bugger all.

sry this might be an unpopular opinion but.....

you’re not a real lgbt ally until you promise to fight homophobes to the death AND play several sad gay men and eventually receive an academy award nomination for at least one of those occasions sry :/

Japan Academy Nominations!

Shin Godzilla gets ten nods, the second most after serious human drama Ikari (11 nominations), featuring Ken Watanabe among others. I’m not sure of all of its nominations, but my source lists at least the following among its ten:

  • Best Film
  • Best Director
  • Best Actor in a Starring Role (Hiroki Hasegawa)
  • Best actress in a Supporting Role (Two nominations - Both Satomi Ishihara and Mikako Ichikawa)
November 9, 2016.

I’m angry, anxious, and sleep-deprived. I don’t know what to expect come January and the following 4 years. Hope for the best (whatever that means at this point) but brace for the worst (however it is we’re supposed to do that.) One thing seems pretty clear: a lot of Bad Things that didn’t seem possible just a day ago are now real possibilities.

The nomination and appointment of at least one extreme right-wing Supreme Court Justice.

Restricted access to abortion and women’s health services.

Repeal of the ACA.

The continued assault on voting rights.

A threat to marriage equality.

A dangerous, dark turn against POC and immigrants.

A drastic shift away from global trade.

An uninformed, undisciplined, and incoherent foreign policy.

An utter disrespect for the sanctity of democratic norms and freedom of the press.

The list goes on.

In many ways I’m insulated from the worst of this: I’m a gainfully employed, married, cisgender, educated man who passes for white. But I know that for millions of Americans, and billions of people around the rest of the world, this represents a much more existential crisis. My heart breaks thinking of what they - what YOU - are going through, given how deeply unmoored I feel right now.

I’m not interested in pointing fingers or lashing out. If you voted Trump: congratulations, your candidate won. If you voted Clinton: I’m sorry, I thought she would win, too. If you voted third party: I’m sorry your candidate did not win.

I don’t know what a President Trump will do. Campaign platforms rarely translate directly into governance, but they usually give a good indication of the general direction. It was a campaign predicated on divisiveness, demographic resentment, vulgarity, misogyny, ethnonationalism, xenophobia and anti-intellectualism; a myopic rejection of multiculturism and social progress in all its forms. I genuinely fear this election outcome will lend legitimacy to these views, and embolden some to act out violently based on these beliefs. I fear the structural and institutional changes that will be made to our republic. And I fear for those abroad who will be affected by decisions made here.

BUT.

It was a narrow victory. Signs point to a popular/electoral split. I’m not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the election: Trump won, he’s the President-elect. I’m pointing to the fact that for every vote for Trump, there was an opposing vote, a vote for a very different vision of America. An America defined by compassion, inclusiveness, optimism, reason. We have been in the opposition before, we know how this works.

So I’m angry, I’m anxious, I’m sleep-deprived. But there’s work to be done, let’s get to it.

White women historically have been protected — at least nominally. There’s been lip service about preserving the virtue of the white woman. But black women don’t have that luxury, so in a way, they don’t fall for that as some white women do.

So... Spongebob won yet again.

Meh. I think it was to be expected, even though The Loud House gave it competetion. But at least I can let it slide because Spongebob has been getting better since 2015. Also, Nickolodeon does show Spongebob alot more and Loud House still needs time to grow before it can have a better chance. So, whatever. At the very least Loud House was nominated, so that’s a start.

At the very least Teen Titans Go didn’t win…

Action of the day: Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, is phenomenally unqualified for the job.  She has no education policy background, has never taught, and has never attended public school or sought public education for anyone else in her family.  If three Republican Senators join the 48 Senate Democrats in opposing her during her hearing on January 31, the appointment will not go forward.  

Below is a list of Republican Senators who have expressed doubts about DeVos.  Call at least one of them today to express your opposition to her nomination.

Susan Collins (ME) 207.622.8414
Lamar Alexander (TN) 615.736.5129
Lisa Murkowski (AK) 907.586.7277
Johnny Isakson (GA) 770.661.0999
Orrin Hatch (UT) 801.524.4380
Richard Burr (NC) 336.631.5125
Michael Enzi (WY) 202.224.3424
Dr. Bill Cassidy (LA) 202.224.5824
Pat Roberts (KS) 202.224.4774
Tim Scott (SC) 202.224.6121
Rand Paul (KY) 202.224.4343

Okay so Game of Thrones has been nominated in 5 categories for Critic’s Choice Awards; for best drama series, Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke for best supporting actress in drama series, and Peter Dinklage and Kit Harrington for best supporting actor in drama series.

That is all great. BUT WHERE THE HELL IS IWAN’S NOMINATION? No matter how you put it, he did an INCREDIBLE job portraying Ramsay. If you hated him deeply, that just means he did his job right. It really annoys me that he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. Iwan Rheon is a f*cking fantastic actor and he deserved at least a nomination - just like he deserved an Emmy nomination.

Because it’s the Inquisition, and apparently everyone has an opinion (a.k.a. the companions are idiots with no sense of boundaries). Fluff.


Dorian wakes wondering why he’s wrapped in an extra blanket - he’s been meaning to requisition one, they aren’t in the hotter months yet and the Plains can be cold - until he realises that said blanket is actually an astonishingly warm, asleep man. He doesn’t particularly mind. This far south, he’ll take any heat he can get. He absentmindedly examines one of the arms around his waist, plucks at Gal’s sleeve with half-conscious curiosity, and touches the hand that’s glowing slightly in the dim light.

He’s certain they started out with separate bedrolls, or at least nominally separate ones. He wonders when the gap was closed, but considering it in any more detail would require proper thought, and for now he’s quite happy to enjoy the haze. He lies there, on the edge of sleep and thinking in circles, until he finds himself closing his eyes and savouring the feeling. It’s far too comfortable, and it shouldn’t be.

He extricates himself as gently as possible, shifting and rolling over. It’s an art, leaving without waking a bed partner, and really he should be finding his leathers and his gear. But he glances at Gal, and for some reason he lingers.
