because the quality is so awful

8

He woke tho

things i am still learning part iii:

love isnt love if it’s not unconditional. don’t let anyone pick and choose which qualities you should keep and which habits you should discard. the words “i love you” should never be followed by the word “but,” and if they can’t handle your hurricane nights they don’t deserve your warm breeze days.

sometimes you need to be awful. be dirty, filthy, cruel. burn photos like you used to in high school. smoke cigarettes in his sweater because he always hated the smell. you can decide if you want to wash it before you give it back. you can decide how far to take it.

be reckless if it makes you feel more alive. adrenaline rushes are so commonly sought after, and you’ll never understand why until you feel your heart gasping for air.

prove yourself right. if you have any small reason not to completely trust someone, chances are you’re onto something. don’t let anyone have your trust if they don’t deserve it.

don’t waste your time on anyone who won’t spend their time with you. if he’s always hours late, if he cancels to be with others, if he isn’t willing to call you on the phone every so often just to talk, break all the clocks in your bedroom. smash the watch you’ve kept since you were a kid. it’s just not worth it.

if he calls you crazy for asking questions, you already guessed the answer. leave. and don’t you dare go back.

On Team Moms

I know we’re all about how Allura is Space Mom™ and apply all these motherly qualities to her but…

… Allura is a depressed, bossy, impatient, lost and aggressive girl who smacked Pidge in the face with green goop because she ticked her off. 

She’s as emotionally fragile as the rest of them, it’s worse for her because her fucking planet is gone and she let herself get sucked into the simulation so she can free of her awful reality and free of her new responsibilities. She’s stepping up to the task but she doesn’t want it.

 She has shown the tendency to go for the throat when she’s bothered, was reckless on her and Shiro’s mission and prioritized him over herself when she tossed him in an escape shuttle in a they-need-you-more-than-they-need-me way.

Allura doesn’t have much in the way of Team Mom™ traits, she has all the tropes of the Team Big Brother™. If anything, she needs a Team Mom or Dad and so far Coran might be both for her.

Now, let’s be honest, guys, if anyone’s the Team Mom™, it’s Hunk.

He prioritizes other people’s feelings, worries like no one’s business, snooped around Pidge then said nothing for her own comfort and safety, rarely complains so he doesn’t burden the others, made sure to make Keith feel included, gives the best hugs and he figured out a way to cook good and nutritious meals.

Hunk for Team Mom!

honestly? everyone is asking way too much of high schoolers and it’s fucking insane. 

every weekday they’re all expected to get up early enough to be at school by 8am and then they usually spend their whole day sitting in desks but are expected to be wide awake. each hour they have to go to a different class but they only have like five minutes to get there. more or less rinse and repeat until 2:30ish with the tiniest break for lunch and that’s their whole school day.

lunch is like only half an hour and both the quality and quantity of food served at the cafeteria has been on a steady decline for a while now. i seriously went home for lunch every single day of my senior year because the food was so truly awful. there was this point where they stopped caring so much that they literally served a piece of garlic french bread (the shitty frozen kind, you know what i’m talking about) with marinara sauce and that was the whole lunch entree. 

along with their required classes, in order to look good to colleges they’re expected to take AP classes and advanced classes and extra classes what have you, as well as get good grades in them. all those teachers then proceed to pile ridiculous amounts of homework onto them in order to “prepare them for college” but you know what? as someone who took six AP classes in high school, i think AP classes are harder than college classes. they’re probably about the same content-wise but the general environment of high school is so overwhelming and stressful that it’s so much harder to focus on actually learning.

on top of academics they’re expected to be involved in extracurricular activities, sports, music, volunteering, internships, etc. and of course this is all in order to look good for colleges. because what is free time, right?

by the time they turn 16 (or maybe earlier) they’re also often expected to get a part time job. some of my coworkers who were still in high school worked 25+ hours a week, which is a fucking insane amount of time when you’re also a full time student. 

along with all this, they’re expected to get at least eight hours of sleep every night, which is A) a fucking joke, and B) literally impossible if you’re doing everything they want you to, and also if you’re not. high school is just such a truly awful environment to be in. i played sick really often because i hated being there so much. i overslept all the time because i never got enough sleep. i graduated two years ago and i still have anxiety dreams about high school because it was such a blight on my life for four years. 

anyway if you’re reading this and you’re in high school i want you to know that it’s okay if you’re unable to meet all these expectations because they’re absolutely outrageous

YouTuber!Javid where Jack has one of those art channels or David has like a science channel or something..? Xxxxxxxxxx

I support this.

  • Jack starts off doing speedpaints where he never shows his face but after about a year he does a video of himself thanking his 300 subscribers and from there his channel takes off because he’s a natural on camera. He ends up with a couple of million subscribers after a while
  • Davey has about 50,000 subscribers. He makes a bunch of nerdy educational videos but they’re super interesting and lots of teachers show them in their classes because their students love him
  • His most popular miniseries is ‘This person is important because’ where he picks a lesser known person from history and talks about why the world is a better place because of them
  • Davey has the biggest crush on Jack and used to watch his videos before he made his own channel. His subscribers dig up some old comments on Jack’s videos that are cringingly enthusiastic and Davey wants to die when he sees the screenshots on tumblr
  • The people who watch both channels start zealously shipping them and eventually Jack catches wind of it. He’s never heard of this Davey kid but he looks him up and woah he’s cute
  • Jack sees that Davey follows him on twitter and follows back. He sends him a message saying hi and they start talking
  • They’re just friends over the internet but about one year after they start talking they meet at VidCon and Davey is terrified and nervous and blushing but Jack is such a people person that he’s able to calm him down a lot and get him to relax
  • Jack asks him to dance at one of the parties that Davey isn’t sure how he managed to get himself into because he’s surrounded by people with a hundred times more subscribers than he has
  • They kiss for the first time at the party and Jack ends up inviting Davey to his hotel room for some peace and quiet. They talk a lot and kiss a lot and Davey falls asleep in Jack’s bed for the first of many times
  • There were so many cameras at the party that they end up in the background of at least three vlogs but the lighting is awful and the video quality is mercifully grainy so they get away with keeping quiet and pretending it’s not them because they don’t want their budding relationship to be public
  • Fast forward a year and they’re living together and Davey has gained way more subscribers. He knows they’re all there because he’s publicly dating Jack now but as long as they learn something educational, he doesn’t care
  • Jack has a side channel where he vlogs a lot and Davey is always begrudgingly in the videos, using working or trying to sleep whilst Jack distracts him. They’re almost nauseatingly domestic and sometimes Jack will end up with footage of this one sleepy smile that Davey does when Jack’s poking or tickling him awake and he hadn’t realised there’s a camera in his face yet. That smile never ends up online because it’s one of Jack’s favourite things in the world and, as much as he shares a lot of his life with the internet, that’s where he draws the line

Hello! Love your drawings! I wish I could draw like you do but I'm just awful lol. Can you draw Jim dressed up as Frank N Furter and Sebastian as Rocky, both from The Rocky Horror Picture Show? I feel like Jim would be a total nerd for the film and Seb would dress up just to please him hahaha. Have a nice day, darling x

I got this request before and I didn’t want to do it because I don’t know anything about Rocky Horror, but I figured I might as well try because it’s better than nothing. So here is my doodle-quality attempt, hope you like it <3

A male hero, at best, lacks the qualities of maternal love and tenderness which are as essential to a normal child as the breath of life. Suppose your child’s ideal becomes a superman who uses his extraordinary power to help the weak. The most important ingredient in the human happiness recipe still is missing-love. It’s smart to be strong. It’s big to be generous. But it’s sissified according to exclusively masculine rules, to be tender, loving affectionate, and alluring. “Aw, that’s girls stuff!” snorts our young comics reader. “Who wants to be a girl?” And that’s the point. Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power. Not wanting to be girls, they don’t want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women’s strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman. ★ [The Secret History of Wonder Woman, (2014)]

Does anybody know anything about t-shirt prints?

I’ve always wanted some cool Ghibli t-shirts, but I’ve never been happy with the thousands and thousands of designs that are out there, hehe. So about a year ago I figured I would simply draw my own vector graphic and get my own design printed. So, I got one printed via Shirtinator, and although the result isn’t absolutely awful, it’s definitely not the quality I am after. The design looks dull and just not the quality of t-shirts you would get from retailers.

So does anybody know what method is best for printing designs onto t-shirts? Or do you know of any good websites? Maybe I need to adjust my design/colours for t-shirt prints?

I can’t use screen printing because my design has about 20 colours and also is used for large batches, and I will only be ordering 2 for myself.

That’s what the design looked like on the site, nice and bright and professional looking. But obviously the reality/result wasn’t as such.

i think about you all the time, i think about what i would say if i ever saw you again. its nearly one in the morning months after ive last seen your daughter but the sight of her never leaves my mind, let alone my heart. and so i would tell you this. you have raised one hell of a child. i have learned from her much of what she learned from you, the values you instilled in her, and the morals you have given her. i would tell you that because of her, because of you i am who i am today. you saved my life. your daughter saved my life. i am forever indebted to you and your family. because of you i have seen love, compassion, empathy, and every quality i desire to have in my life. the countless holidays spent with you and your family in the home that one just felt like a house to me have changed me forever. you created a daughter so strong, so relentless, so caring, compassionate, and overall such an amazing human being that i am forever in awe. and i am convinced i will never meet another young woman or family that means as much to me as yours has. i would say thank you, as i said to you that first week you met me on your living room couch, i would say thank you, thank you for opening up your home and your hearts to me as i know it must not have been easy, as i have until now been a stranger to you. thank you for letting me meet your daughter, as she means more to me than you could ever imagine, and i love her more than you will ever know and i always will. you hugged me after that and then she came down the stairs and it was our secret. i would say those very words to you again, but i would say this, thank you, thank you for letting me meet your daughter as she has saved my life. she has made me into a better person than i ever believed i could have been, thank you for being my family when i needed one the most. i hope to one day be even half the mother you are to her and were to me. and i hope to raise my daughter to be exactly like yours even if it isn’t your granddaughter. thank you, thank you for letting me meet your daughter.

Down For The Count (Lin x Reader)

Summary: You’re Lin’s Eliza.

Word Count: 3826

Warnings: terrible depictions of how musicals work, swearing

A/N: i’ve decided that i don’t know how to write short fics - that’s all i learned from this. also!! thank you to @hamiltrashtothemax for hitting me up w that picture of a page from the hamiltome since i don’t have mine with me. there are some references to it in here

You were situated in your usual spot on you and Lin’s old, slightly worn couch with your laptop warming your thighs and your sock clad feet crossed on your coffee table. Your hair was styled in a sloppy bun that sat on the top of your head, stray pieces of hair peeking out. You softly bit your cheek, the ongoing clicks of you and Lin’s laptops ringing in your ears. Lin worked on the seemingly never ending process of Hamilton as you worked on finding some new gigs.

Marrying and moving in with Lin had been a miracle, seeing that you both were passionate, avid people of the theatre. You had met him just after he left Heights through Lac’s fortunate pulling of strings, and you were forever thankful for him. You took a second to tear your eyes from your screen, glancing around your living room as you let out a soft sigh. You and Lin had hardly moved into your apartment approximately a week ago, and you had barely touched your overflowing boxes that lined the walls. The other day you had moved in Lin’s extremely out of tune piano that sat untouched against the far wall, so Lin had resorted to the software on his laptop to do his musical mind justice.

do you think the map community is too competitive and harsh on young animators?

To be honest, yea a bit? The bar for the quality of content has been raised sooo high and I feel like it puts a lot of pressure on animators. That’s not a bad thing bc wOW the community has become so skilled over the years and it’s so inspiring, but it’s definitely giving younger animators pressure to be unrealistically good beyond their current capabilities yknow. 

Back in 2009 ish people were super happy and wowed by the MS paint animations going on, but now audiences are harder to impress and expect more. Younger animators need the freedom and fun of learning to animate without the crazy criticism and awful cringe compilations that are being made popular atm, but because of the higher quality in animations within the MAP community the audience expects that high quality from everyone so are very quick to harshly criticize people who are learning which can be really discouraging.

YouTube’s a platform accessible by anyone so it’s really nice and easy for kids to share their early animations, make friends through them and learn from others, but because the animations in the community have gotten such high quality people expect too much from learning people yknow? Not everyone starts off amazing, kids should be allowed to practice and make creations freely without the fear of being compared to those who’ve had many years of practice and being made to feel awful because of it.

In a nutshell I don’t think competition is a bad thing because it inspires and pushes others to be better, but people who are young and learning need encouragement to keep animating, instead of being harshly criticized for not having as much experience as those who have been animating for a much longer time.

Hi there! if it's not too annoying, may I ask why you dislike Life is Strange so much?

Oh boy, where do I start. I’ve probably forgotten half of it too.

Also, before I get into it, don’t think I’m knocking anyone for liking this game. It’s obviously popular and I’m in the minority in hating it, so don’t let my opinion make you feel like you’re wrong or something. Art is subjective. Tastes differ.

Alright, I’m so tired of now seeing people repeated this over and over again, “high school romances don’t last” in regards to all the PLL couples.

Here’s the thing: they usually don’t, but the possibility of it happening is about 242464653 x more likely than any of the -A crap will ever be. This is a show about four girls who’s dead friend isn’t dead, people all over this town are switching dead bodies around, parents aren’t really parents, there’s a stalker who knows where they are every moment of the day and has the ability to frame people for murder, outsmart an entire PD, put people in a giant dollhouse no one knew anything about, create a giant animatronic board game that literally responds on its own, and yet, it’s the ships that are too unrealistic?

Okay and take out the high school part of the equation and is it unlikely to end up with the person who changed their entire career and life around to protect you? Who searched for you endlessly when you were missing? Who was there for you when there was someone who tortured and tormented you relentlessly? Who dealt with being stalked and tormented too, just to be with you? Is it unrealistic that you’d end up with that person? No, what’s unrealistic is that they all broke up in the first place.

Okay and sorry to all you high and mighty fans who evidently still care about the mystery but really, you have to be aware that without the shippers, the people who purely watch because they want to see their couple end up together and the -A storyline be damned, are the only reason the show is still on the air today. PLL is not what you would call a “quality” show. You may really just be dying to see who -A is and get your seven year old answers but the show’s writing has been so awful for so long now that a big portion of the viewers who are still around are only here for the couples. Even Marlene and co knows this. That’s why they currently write more about the ships than they do the mystery, unlike the early seasons.

So you if all could like try to think for a second about the storylines and the “quality” of the show in general before calling Spoby/Haleb/Ezria/Emison unrealistic, that would be great.

anonymous asked:

omg thank you, when rick was like 'your fatal flaw is loyalty, it's deadly' i literally rolled my eyes. THIS IS NOT A REAL FLAW. can we stop saying their flaws are things which are actually good, just because the mc is so awesome? (sarcasm). what makes it worse is percy is actually a good, fleshed out character. he has real flaws. give us a real fatal flaw rather than 'loyalty'. they're all loyal, annabeth literally says she would've done the same.

THAT’S WHAT I’M SAYING!!!!!!! loyalty is not a flaw and that’s the end of it. anyone who would let the world die to save their friends is not loyal, they’re selfish or shortsighted or frivolous with human life or obsessively controlling or any number of other issues that are actually flaws. and like you said, annabeth is also self sacrificial for her friends, as are literally all the heroes. that’s like. the literal definition of a hero. in all fiction. and even in real life.

giving the world to save a friend is a different story entirely. that’s bargaining with people’s lives and screwing up like all of history and life as we know it because your own happiness is the only thing that matters. that’s not loyalty, that’s not selfless. that’s about the most selfish thing i can think of. screwing the entire world over so the people you care about can be happy? fuck you! seriously! 

i guess the real debate lies in whether that quality is actually present in percy. there are lines like “forget the world, he didn’t want to be without her” which is pretty damn close to what i described. so i guess maybe in that sense, it is a fatal flaw. and i definitely think that’s an awful flaw.

but still. i just don’t really buy it. because like, we all have flaws, you know? we’re all selfish and angry and power hungry and proud and conniving and a number of other things. so what makes something a fatal flaw is the capacity of that flaw to actually fuck up your life and screw everything up. that’s what makes someone a tragic hero: they have a tragic flaw that causes their downfall. if the flaw doesn’t cause their downfall, it’s not the tragic flaw. that’s a literary rule. so yeah, sure, the hero can have flaws in any number of ways, but if it doesn’t ever cause them to fuck up, then it’s not the tragic, fatal flaw.

and like i’ve said before, percy’s supposed loyalty to his friends has not ever caused him to fuck something up. ever. he leaves his mom in the underworld, he leaves beckendorf on the andromeda, he lets annabeth go on her quest, and a whole host of other things that, time and time again, he’s able to relax. and i’m just not willing to accept that a passing thought of “fuck everything i just want my girlfriend to survive” means he’s fatally flawed in this area. who hasn’t had a thought like that? i hardly think that controls his life. he’s got a good grip on it, he keeps it in check.

i can, however, think of a number of flaws percy has that consistently fuck him over. mouthing off and resisting authority, for example, causing him to go off on his own. he really wrestles with this in titan’s curse, which is super ironic because it’s the same book where athena’s like “hey your flaw is you’re too loyal” and i’m like bitch where?? you mean in the same book where he fucked up nico and bianca’s extraction because he got pissed at thalia and veered off on his own? the same book where he hated dionysus so much that he couldn’t bear to ask for help until his friends were literally dying, and even then he did it through gritted teeth and hated every second of it?

like i am sorry but what is the one thing that consistently gives percy trouble, that he’s bad at controlling, that leaves his friends shifting nervously and trying to reel him in?

his fucking temper.

Yooooooo so can we talk about Tony introducing Peter Quill to all the awesome stuff he's missed on Earth?

Tony would introduce Peter to all good stuff and here’s a list of what Tony would introduce him too!

  • All the new ice cream flavors that Peter has missed. Space ice cream is great, it’s fantastic, it’s out of this world but when Tony introduces Peter to cookie dough ice cream, Peter cries with joy and eats two whole tubs of it in an evening. 
  • All the Disney movies, all of them. Tony is a Disney fan (he is, fight me) and he knows Peter hasn’t caught up on all the rest since he been gone for so long. Disney movie marathon!!! Treasure Planet has a special place in Peter’s heart and they both jam out to the Tarzan soundtrack. Peter falls in love with Phil Collins. 
  • The music! Tony has already shown Peter his music interests and his favorite songs. they do fight about music from time to time but it always ends with Peter serenading tony to prove a point. there’re a few new artists that Peter likes  but he’ll always stick to the oldies. Peter’s terrified when he finds himself humming along to Taylor Swift. 
  • technology isn’t really something Tony bothers to show peter because he’s half alien and he’s from space! Earth technology still has a long way to go. tony laughs when Peter complains about the bad quality of the camera on the newest iPhone. 
  • Tony definitely takes Peter to space museums and the national history museums. Yes, once again, he’s from space but Peter’s in absolutely awe. he never had a chance to learn about his mother’s planet in so much detail. Museums become one of his favorite places to go.

I can’t really think of anything else because the dude’s from space and I’d think that there would be cooler things out there. But since he hasn’t been to earth in such a long time, all of these things would be new and exciting for him. A device that can hold all of his music without him needing a cassette tape, skinny jeans and flavored lube. There’s so much that Tony could show the smallest thing and Peter would be like ‘whoa that’s awesome!’ and he’d truly be an alien in his own world because he hasn’t been around to witness the development. 

There’d be so much!

I also have this idea where Tony shows Peter dubstep and Peter leaves the room because he’s livid

gabrielleesquer mentioned you on a post “Who’s eco earth girl?”

@tser What’s wrong with Brian’s channel? It’s Brian Barczyk right? Cuz I watch it a good amount and if it’s misleading I’d like to know why so I don’t do the wrong stuff when I get a snake or gecko. ☹️

Ah, he’s not only giving wrong information, he is abusive to his animals. 

He has giant snakes and lizards (monitors) in tiny drawers, he has filthy tiny tubs for all his animals, tubs full of leopard geckos and bearded dragons (should not be cohabbed), he promotes irresponsible handling (his poor care makes his snakes very defensive etc.), and is generally all around an awful guy to people who interact with him including in person. He set up an “experiment” to “prove” something that was set up so poorly and biased it didn’t prove anything but I still hear people quoting it. 

His animals are also extremely low quality which he floods the market with because he is basically the reptile equivalent of a puppy mill. 

He withholds information (Mr. Smooth, the scaleless ball python that was super unhealthy, and then the other one which mysteriously disappeared and was never mentioned again).

Some links to others who have discussed it as well (and there are lots of discussions):

Warning: These links do have pictures (screenshots from his videos) of injured animals and feces riddled enclosures and abusive husbandry.

In addition there’s a lot of discussion about him on Board of Inquiry (major breeder review forum) – people have purchased hets that didn’t prove out from him, gotten sick animals, deformed animals, animals with parasites, etc. I can’t handle reading too much of that forum (there’s always going to be some sexist or other disgusting comments from someone somewhere in the thread) but if you search I’m sure you can find it.

And lots more on Tumblr also.
