What the hell happened with the sonic for justice thing????

alright, so a rundown (sticking purely to the basics because lots of smaller less pertinent arguing happened throughout the run so far):

circa may 30, 2015, the blog sonic-for-real-justice formed. basically, they described themselves as an anti-sj blog that happened to use sonic characters as mod faceclaims. kind of ridiculous, enough so for mod shadow’s intro to get reasonably popular (tho, tbh, mod amy’s intro is much worse), but that post was really just a passing popularity sort of thing. but because of it, enough people tuned in that when the ridiculous drama started, they could REALLY up the popularity.

originally, there were six mods - sonic (the head mod), shadow, amy, tails, silver, and tikal. these were six very different personalities, but silver in particular was extremely shy, enough so that one of the rules was “be gentle with mod silver.” well, another rule was “dont close the ask box,” but BECAUSE silver was so ‘delicate,’ he was easily overwhelmed with the huge number of asks. mod amy reacted VERY BADLY and essentially kicked silver off the blog because of his sensitivity. when people pointed out this broke the ‘be nice to mod silver’ rule, amy changed the rule to “send hate about mod silver and be nice to mod amy” and made some fairly manipulative posts. (mod sonic would go on to say that these “weren’t manipulative in context,” which, you know. bullshit) unfortunately, amy and sonic made this decision without consulting the other mods, so mod tails - who was particularly close to silver - was devastated, leading to a repeat of mod amy’s manipulation and this glorious post. sonic made this shitty post that started the discovery that sonic was not a levelheaded leader keeping the others in check as we thought, he was actually the man behind the man, the ultimate villain driving mod amy. also someone made a knowyourmeme page, and this was ONLY IN THE FIRST DAY.

the next morning began with mod tails taking their leave, citing the banning of mod silver and being harassed by mod amy. amy and sonic, on the other, denied ANY form of harassment, stating that amy had, in fact, been asleep all morning. because amy was an asshole to silver and continued to be manipulative and overall just shitty, people as a general rule have sided with tails regardless of whether they were lying or not, cause. yknow. down with mod amy. soon after, mod sonic was asked what his least favorite sonic game was, and answering Sonic Adventure 2 SOMEHOW SPARKED A HUGE ARGUMENT BETWEEN HIM AND SHADOW and resulted in the general opinion that mod shadow was kind of like the ridiculously shittily written antihero, but the hero nonetheless. and then the SHOCKING REVEAL - mod sonic, who had been professing all day yesterday to be a gay man and was angry when anyone so much as insinuated otherwise, SAID HE WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH MOD AMY. this understandably completely shocked mod shadow and accounted for most of the favoritism towards mod amy and the reason that she was still on the blog despite all of her shit. (mod shadow went on to do some fairly not shitty things like calling out anti-autism jokes and criticizing gamergate, cementing his place as the ‘weirdly unsympathetic rising hero’ of the franchise).

a while after the rise of shadow, as mod tails’ replacement, mod knuckles took the stage. her intended purpose was to keep the drama to a minimum and basically be the lawful neutral that the group felt it needed. this came immediately after the arguing between shadow and sonic escalated EVEN FURTHER, to the point mod shadow was ALMOST KICKED. unfortunately, tragedy struck later in the day; mod tikal, realizing she was a demigirl and not a cis girl, understandably got excited about identifying with a term for her gender and made a public post on it…which resulted in mods sonic and amy calling her ‘tucute’ and kicking her off the blog. when people pointed out to knuckles that this went against their rule against harassment because of gender, she insisted that it fully complied. this has easily been the MOST controversial move from the blog so far, as for some reason despite the mods consistently being assholes and calling gender special snowflakes people were shocked that they would kick off someone for their gender? like i really dont know what was going through peoples heads at this point, these were people literally calling a huge amount of gender identities ‘special snowflakes’. also, shadow got banned for some reason, knuckles called out sonic and amy’s bullshit, and the sun set on another day.

so far today, mod knuckles has more or less kept everyone in line; however, literally AS I WAS WRITING THIS POST, mods shadow and amy got into another fight. in addition to that, they’ve stated they may be adding another mod, so we’re all waiting for that.

tl;dr down with mod amy, the drama gotta go fast

Television killed the cinema star: 16 more shows worthy of the films that inspired them

Fargo (2014-)

Rather than simply stretch out the plot of the 1996 movie, casting new actors in all the old roles, series creator Noah Hawley cooked up a new one—a kind of loosely connected sequel, set in the same wintry backstretch of Minnesota and featuring characters both similar to and crucially different from their cinematic counterparts. The resulting 10-episode saga was thrilling not just for the way it wove in elements of the original—including that iconic score, beautifully deconstructed—but for how it built a new world within the Coens’ unmistakable moral universe. 

Parenthood (2010-15)

The most valuable element of both the movie and its successful TV offspring is the ability to depict just how tough the titular gig is. In both versions, Parenthood’s realism was a refreshing break from idyllic cinematic or TV families: Your kid may just decide to throw up on you after a baseball game or throw their retainer away in the trash. And yet, few parents would trade that job for any other, and TV’s Parenthood expanded past the movie to show us why for six seasons. 

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2003-2005, 2008-2014)

The Star Wars setting has always been larger than Lucas’ cinematic ambitions. The Clone Wars realized some of those ambitions by focusing on long arcs, character development (particularly Anakin Skywalker’s), and new characters who flesh out the film’s expanded universe. The stylized animation takes some getting used to, especially when dealing with familiar characters, but the storytelling just improved over the series’ run, until by the end, it was arguably more emotionally sophisticated than the films that inspired it.

LOVESICK 2 TEASER EP 11-12

Argentine newspaper interview! finally! :D
here and here can read all (en castellano, claro)
here I translate some parts…

“I want Lecter be like a fallen angel”
Danish actor plays the most famous pop culture cannibal. This Thursday AXN released the first episode of the series that has already gained the favor of the “fannibals”. “It’s amazing how all on this fiction have the ability to become psychopaths,” he says.
By Federico Lisica - Página/12 on Canada - From Toronto

The foyer is the Norman Chapel in Palermo, severe and beautiful and timeless, with a single reminder of mortality in the skull graven in the floor, wrote Thomas Harris, author of the novels that gave rise to Dr. Lecter. And Mads Mikkelsen, the actor who plays him in Hannibal, is sitting on a stool on the image concerned. It’s not the Italian church but a careful reproduction located in a television studio. And the most famous cannibal pop culture move his footwear close to some bones, with the reflection of golden Byzantine behind, it’s quite enigmatic.
Even though the series has played intelligently with different genres (the police procedural, the thriller and will do with the romantic novel); even though it has made an attractive range of characters by Gillian Anderson and Laurence Fishburne, among others, the center of this refined and frightening universe remains one: Hannibal Lecter (previously played on the big screen by three actors in five movies). “The biggest fear I had to face it was to get in the giant shoes of Anthony Hopkins and Brian Cox. Obviously they were in our memory and for good reason. His works were immaculate. Here we try to do something different and every day we had to convince us that we had allowed” states the actor in the press conference.

-How was the preparation for a character who is like a Renaissance man, someone with such skills?
It’s pretty hard at one point. Let’s see, obviously you have the books and movies. As we are not doing the same thing that in the films you need grab something. Books can give you a help. I think it’s a man living in the moment. He doesn’t have room in his schedule to drink bad wine or be with boring people. And for that you don’t need too much research. It’s doing what the rest of us want, except for that of killing people, I guess. For him, every second is an beauty opportunity and definitely goes after it.

-But this is a serial murderer. Are you aware that confronts the audience with the idea of ​​returning sympathetic someone who is not at all?
Yes, I’m very aware of that. It’s one of the things I like about this program, and also of my favorite movies. I have a vivid memory of the first time I saw Taxi Driver. That film was a tremendous inspiration to me in the sense that I left the cinema without knowing whether or not fond of that kind. It was very complex, until then we had the good and the bad, the good always gave him an Oscar, right? We tend to want to be very strict, but when something is confusing, it’s because there are our reflections. We want to do the right thing but not necessarily we do it…

-Bryan Cranston said that when he finished Breaking Bad, felt empty. Do you imagine your life without Hannibal?
Very easily. I live without him every day. I don’t carry with him. I find it pretentious when actors say that. As needing extra attention. Although I love the character and give a hundred percent, I would lie if I say I appropriate it.

-In The first two seasons we saw him as a psychiatrist that playing mentally with his patients. Now he has an academic position in Europe, that made it difficult or challenging?
No, because he’s curator and translator of Pallazo Capaldi, and that is for him a wonderful place to live. He’s in the midst of the things he loves from antiquity. He is in the heart of the Renaissance. He continue manipulating everything and everyone because he enjoys it. It has an audience that appreciates his intellect. If I had to point out a fault, which will take sometime to get caught, it’s his attitude. He is a vain man. He can’t help it.

One hundred and fifteen liters of blood. That was the amount of plasma used at the end of the second season of Hannibal. His mask as the good professional of Baltimore has fallen and must escape to Europe. The opening sequence located us a few months after the orgasm of violence. The opening is almost like a short film with Lecter driving a motorbike for a nocturnal Paris, wears leather and chasing who will be his dinner and future. It’s a completely revamped, urban and crazy version of the character. Also of gender. To have the “serial killer of the week”, the filmmakers decided to leave the series in two. The first half show his new facade in the old world and the FBI going after him.

This will also be the season in which the technique of “memory palace” will be appreciated. That place in the mind of Lecter, with echoes of the church described in the first lines. For Fuller it’s like a computer in which Lecter download all information relating to his life and used at particular times. Approaches the incarceration and the mask over his jaw? “Being in prison is part of Hannibal’s life, stated Mikkelsen-. I mean he has no problem with being locked, it’s not the end of the world, because he can use this technique. He can close his eyes and be anywhere. Which it’s also a very interesting challenge for the series. Always he wants to know what follows from the other side of the corner. Obviously he appreciates his freedom. He loves being in Paris and Florence. He is in places and do things he have never done before. But if that change he has an ace up his sleeve. Does his memory palace.

-He is an iconic character, as Otelo or the Joker, touch very intimate fibers for an actor. Did you have some care to get in his mind?
‘I’d worry if we weren’t radicals. If we started soften us or try to explain to the audience why he is that way, why he is became a monster. I would hate that. What I want is to be him. I want him to be like a fallen angel. I don’t want too many explanations. I think that’s banal. Hannibal would hate that more than me. Not that he is that way for something specific. He is someone complex who explores life to the fullest.

It was only when I was saving the pictures for this challenge that I discovered my feeling was right, I have already done something called ‘permutations of a string’ :V The other one is here, and it’s incredibly similar but I did it five months ago and this one has a different number so damn it here it is. Like last time, it goes along the remaining free letters and adds them each to the current string, recursing along until it;s out of letters to add. The difference between this one and the old one is that the old one also checks for real dictionary words in the permutations, so this is a re-hash with less functionality incredible.
