Some Little Things I Love About Camp Camp

-The fact that these children swear and talk about philosophy and violence and have perhaps read Lord of the Flies yet obviously still don’t know everything and it’s both hilarious and adorable.
-Max is good at sewing and knitting
-David learning to pick his battles with Max the more time they spend together at Camp
-Every single one of the kids is weird, which is so great because OF COURSE kids are weird
-There’s really no romance plot because they’re all ten or something so it’s cute friendship development
-The implication that Camp Campbell has always kind of been a complete fucking disaster of a sorts but David just keeps on trucking
-Their mascot is a Platypus that quacks

An Ode to Kayzie Rogers

If you’ve heard or seen the newest episodes of Pokemon Sun and Moon, something is different! Longtime Pokemon voice actress Kayzie Rogers has decided to retire, after being on the show since the very beginning.

Probably her best known character vocalization is Wobbuffet.

That role has gone to Erica Schroeder. 

Kayzie voiced hundreds of other Pokemon over the years, from Eevee to Cyndaquil to Corsola to Mimey and others.

If I tried to fit the amount of Pokemon she voiced here it would break Tumblr. She’s also voiced plenty of important and characters of the day. From Professor Ivy to Brutella to Max in Battle Frontier.

Thank you, Kayzie, for all the memories and fun. Happy Retirement!

I just think it’s beyond beautiful that

Emma spent the first 28 years of her life completely alone. She spent it being cared about by no one, being looked after by no one, being put first by no one. She was always picked last, never prioritized, never the centre of anybody’s thoughts. 

In comes: Captain Killian Jones.

Who, literally from the moment he met her, made Emma Swan his Most Important Thing™. Never did he just like her, or just care for her, or just love her, no, no. He put her right at the very tippy tippy top of his list of Reasons To Carry On™. Like think of what that must’ve felt like to her, man. Like I feel like every single day she looked at him staring at her with his I Love You More Than The Jolly Roger™ gaze and she was just like, “Wow…really? Me? But I’ve never… Oh. Woah. Wow. I don’t even know how to…” and like he’s so growly when it comes to Emma Swan’s Wellbeing™. Like she’s stuck behind a cold wall? He’s Panicking™. Gold’s gunna trap her in a hat? He’s mega Panicking™. Her heart darkened by the efforts of Rumple feat. Queens of Darkness? Panicking™. She’s the Dark One and trapped in another realm? Holy shit is he ever Panicking™. She gets sucked into Wish!Realm? Panicking™ to the max. She’s dealing with hand tremors and battling a hooded figure? The Panicking™ is skyrocketing out of control. And then suddenly she’s his WIFE. And then suddenly his wife is not in his grasp and she is far away and look there she is in a mirror with no memories of him and holy sHIT HE IS Panicking™, Panicking™, Panicking™ CAUSE ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS EMMA SWAN(-JONES) AND IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL AND I’M RAMBLING BUT LIKE GUYS I’M NOT READY TO LET GO OF THIS SHIP PLS PROMISE ME WE CAN TALK ABOUT THEIR BEAUTY UNTIL THE END OF TIME ITSELF? 

anonymous asked:

So, what do you think of Rabbids and Mario now?

I’m still not fond of the Rabbids…

BUT… I have to admit the game itself actually looks pretty damn fun, and the Rabbids seem….tolerable in this actually.

It was a friend of mine who was watching E3 with me who sort of pointed out why the dynamic works:

In most comedic teams, you NEED a straight man. 

Bugs and Daffy
Batman and Joker
Sam and Max (Although Sam is just as nuts as Max just a more subdued)

Back when the Rabbids were still a Rayman franchise, Rayman was the straight man reacting to the Rabbids. 

Then the Rabbids became their own thing and their shtick quickly got old.

The Rabbids when left to their own devices are just Minions (Even though the Rabbids came first) 

The Mario cast are the perfect straight man for the Rabbids to play off of. I honestly did laugh a few times while watching it, especially Rabbid Peach reacting to the real Peach.

Heck, even the Minions need a straight man; that being Gru for the most part!

I didn’t know what kind of game we were getting with this. We knew it was some kind of RPG but I was expecting something more in line with the old Paper Mario games; instead we got XCOM

I’m dying to see what Arlo makes a video of about this.

Overall… I actually want to play this game, and I’m actually willing to give it a chance. WEIRD HUH!?

What went down in Horrificator
  • Nino: kk let's film a horror movie bc we need a one-off plot for this episode
  • Mylène: I can't act bc Ivan is terrifying

  • Mylène: imma sing the song that helps me calm down
  • Mylène: smelly wolf, smelly wolf, trapped in the stinky hut
  • Mylène: smelly wolf, smelly wolf, I'm gonna kick your b**t
  • Nino: did you just censor "butt"?
  • Mylène: why is that relevant?
  • Nino: why would you censor that? it's not a curse word
  • Mylène: idk
  • Alya: ok speaking as the only voice of reason in the room, as usual, can we maybe get back on track?
  • Max: agreed, we've got only 78 hours before they kick us out of the school for the evening
  • Nino: there's no way that number is correct
  • Nino: maybe like 7 or 8 hours at most
  • Alya: that running gag is kinda worn out now
  • Chloé: hi
  • Mylène: NOPE NOPE NOPE
  • Ivan: hey Mylène, things are gonna be ok, pls don't get akumatized
  • Mylène: *gets akumatized*
  • Ivan: that defs went well
  • Chloé: so anyway imma take over Mylène's part so I can get to smooch Adrien
  • Alya: that was defs not in my script
  • Nino: I um...may have made a couple revisions?
  • Nino: ok sorry we can take it out

  • Kim: and that Chloé is a scuzzbucket?
  • Max: now we're talking! <>
  • Max and Kim: *enact sweet high five*
  • Max and Kim: *get captured by Horrificator*
  • Marinette: ok Nino so you know how you wanted a realistic monster in your film?
  • Marinette: and then one conveniently showed up
  • Marinette: so what I guess I'm asking is
  • Marinette: are you Hawkmoth?
  • Nino: oh no you caught me
  • Nino: as somebody who was previously akumatized, Hawkmoth is defs who I am
  • Nino: great theorizing there
  • Nino: anyway can you transform and beat the monster pls
  • Marinette: ok. Tikki, spots on!
  • Adrien: imma leave a shoe here as a diversion bc that's defs how that works
  • Adrien: Plagg, claws out!
  • Nathaniel: anyway I'm standing here and I'm defs not in immediate danger of being captured
  • Horrificator: HEY GUYS
  • Nathaniel: hey Horrificator!
  • Horrificator: *captures Nathaniel*
  • Nathaniel: in retrospect I should have seen that coming
  • Horrificator: *captures Chloé*
  • Ladybug: ok let's have a show of hands
  • Ladybug: who here is in favor of not actually rescuing Chloé this time
  • Ladybug: by an overwhelming majority of literally every person, we're not rescuing Chloé
  • Chat Noir: *traps Horrificator in Cataclysm cage*
  • Ladybug: and now it's time for an impromptu musical number!
  • Everyone: *bangs loudly on miscellaneous cleaning supplies while singing*
  • Horrificator: MAKE IT STOP
  • Horrificator: pls have mercy and deakumatize me Hawkmoth
  • Hawkmoth: yeah that's warranted
  • Ladybug: well that's that then
  • Nino: anyway Mr. Mayor here's our film of very real events
  • André: yeah imma disqualify it bc you left my daughter there to die
  • Nino: ok fine we'll go back and rescue her if you give us the award
  • Ladybug: no way in hell am I going back to rescue her
  • Nino: but that's the only way to get the award!
  • Ladybug: then maybe you should have thought of that before you voted to leave her to die
  • Nino: oh yeah good point
cult camp

i loved this scene.

i think a cool idea that could have happened was max pretends to be brained washed to help convince David to get rid of Daniel out of jealousy  and while they sing battle max gets tossed between the two counselors like hes a prize .

and max is realizing the lives of all of the campers are in the hands of David and his dumb camp songs


To me the bravest battle Max Keenan ever fought was the one he began over ten years ago when he re entered my life. Since then everyday he has fought to show me how much he loves me and to make me believe that I could trust him again. He won that fight. He’s a much better man than the one that I built him up to be. He was sweet and silly. I was truely blessed to have a father like Max Keenan. A father who loved me so very much. RIP Max Keenan

anonymous asked:

Have you seen James's new video filmed in a Harods store in London? He apparently said something about Kiwi (a few comments quoted him) - it being about impregnating a woman and her not wanting anything to do with him. I just wonder, is Ben behind that? Because he's a writer for the show and it just keeps happening, these comments thrown in in random videos of the show

Here, at 2:00, is James selling Kiwi at Harrod’s:

There’s no question Ben Winston and James Corden are promoting Harry. He got a whole week in LA, and then a night in London. I’m not complaining– I loved it. First, they’re all friends, and of course you promote your friends. Second, it’s clear that Harry is getting the special treatment. A Kiwi mention is the least of it.

What I had only briefly thought about before (and dismissed as silly), but was made abundantly clear in the video, is that the “kiwi” of the title refers to a testicle (by the way James holds the kiwis as he talks about impregnating a woman). As James’s friend, Harry might have shared some insider info with him?

Styles named a song “bollocks.” Reflect on that.

Or “balls” in American.

They have two different connotations. The British “bollocks” connotes bullshit. Babygate is bullshit. The whole thing is bullshit.

“Balls” connotes chutzpah, an impudent audacity or nerve, the nerve to do something extraordinary. Babygate is so beyond reasonable, it takes nerve to carry it this far, even in the face of its incredulous stupidity, its farcical improbability.

In any case, the singer of Kiwi is a testicle, isn’t he? A sperm donor. He’s “kinda into” this whole gig, but then he finds out… he was just there for his sperm. She’s having your baby; it’s none of your business. He’s paying and paying for it, in so many ways. The baby is for other purposes– you’re only there for your sperm, so the baby can be linked to you, so the whole baby-having thing has nothing to do with love or affection, only biology. But IS IT your sperm? Sure would be nice to know with a DNA test.

What’s interesting is not James’s referring to Harry, but this hidden, covert reference to Louis, which wouldn’t be picked up by the GP.

During Katy Perry’s “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts segment,” this happened:

James shaded The Wanted so mercilessly.

In case we forgot, Louis engaged in this epic Twitter battle with The Wanted’s Max George and Tom Parker in 2013, where Tom tried to out Louis AS AN INSULT:

Nothing is more satisfying to a 1D fan than to see Louis verbally vivisect an idiot. Read about how Tom calls Louis, “She looks beautiful,” how they proposed a physical fighting match because they thought 1D were pansies. Nothing offers greater satisfaction than knowing 1D went on hiatus as the world’s most profitable band, and The Wanted disbanded in 2014.

So was it a coincidence that James referred to The Wanted, who broke up in 2014? They’re deader than dead. Why bring them up? Was it a subtle reference to Louis?

[No pressure, but Louis would kill a week’s worth of LLS for his album promo, I’m just saying]
