but i still love technology

I’m watching insolent roommates and that scene where pyo struggles with technology has me dying cause he searching the AppStore for the radio station number and jinyoung just staring at him like he insane.

throneless. I hate t*mblr and all of its fidgety buttons and it making me follow / unfollow people with some sentient purpose !!  —— But I love the ability to check mutuality…. hate to sound Extra™ but I am weeding tf out of the following garden and it is Good.


     Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida recently saw an event that caused quite a stir. I hope said event will soon become commonplace. On April 8, 2016, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched a Cargo Dragon spacecraft on the CRS-8 resupply mission to the International Space Station. After stage separation, the first stage made a successful powered descent and landing from space. This the second time SpaceX has successfully recovered a booster in this way, but the first landed at sea. To allow for higher fuel margins for the return trip, the Falcon landed at sea on a drone ship called “Of Course I Still Love You”, named in reference to the book “The Player of Games”, in honor of the author Iain M. Banks.

     After landing atop the ship, the entire enterprise was slowly towed back inland where it arrived at Port Canaveral. The arrival was met with quite a fanfare from the general public. In the following days, the Falcon was hoisted from its ship, placed ashore, processed and rotated to the horizontal. Soon, she will undergo ten back to back static fire tests, where the idea of reliable rapid reusability will be further proven to the sometimes skeptical commercial spaceflight community.

     Among all this commotion, a less visible but very symbolic event took place; a sign on a building that read “SpaceX Launch Control” was removed and replaced with a sign that now reads “SpaceX Launch & Landing Control”.

If you are writing modern/urban fantasy stories and a situation could be solved by a Google search, picking up a phone and making a call, or shooting a gun, address why that isn’t the solution. 

And have it be a good narratively believable reason.

We’re too far into the technology age to simply accept no one saw or recorded this happening in a populated area (although mass disbelief is still viable to a point), and we’re certainly too far into the modern age for magic to simply universally make technology not work – that’s a lazy cop out that just doesn’t cut it anymore and doesn’t account for things operating from a distance. 

Build your universe in a better way.

Why I relate to Pidge Gunderson

I grew up in a house with three brothers yet was still considered the nerd of the family even though I am a girl. I loved anything related to technology and still do. I was also the youngest. 

A lot of people think I am a boy because when they hear the name Ray (yes spelled like that) they don’t usually think of a girl with that name (which is why I love it lol element of surprise) 

  • I also loved movies like star wars and was really into space stuff when I was young but now I study animation but still this is a character I really connect with 

I usually related to the nerd characters of animated shows but they were all guys so I’m glad I have a sassy nerdy character who can also kick some serious A**. Thank you Dreamworks for this character :)
