but look how happy i am

listen as someone on the autistic spectrum, I can’t express how happy I am with Billy Cranston as a character.

A lot of the representation of autism/Aspergers I’ve seen in the media has been people who are typically cold/casually insult people/being pushed away or looked down on/overall just pretty negative.

But Billy Cranston..he is a beautiful soul. The biggest stereotype of people on the autistic spectrum is that we “don’t have feelings” or are “really apathetic”. Yeah a lot of us have difficulty understanding other people but that’s because our brains just function differently like a lot of us really do try to understand others because we want people to understand us! And when we see characters that have autistic traits (a lot of the time we don’t get characters that are canonically autistic so we have to look for our representation through characters with traits) being rude and deliberately dismissive of other people’s feelings (a certain detective and a scientist from two highly overrated shows come to mind😒) it’s really harmful to us and supports those stereotypes.

Billy Cranston is not dismissive and rude. He is full of love for his friends. He tries to understand the people around him, probably because a lot of people in a small town don’t try to understand him.

Yes his “quirks” are played for laughs a lot but it’s in no way offensive and is genuinely funny (I mean to me anyway, there were a lot of things he does in the film that I’m guilty of, like not understanding social queues and keep talking and not realising I’m repeating things).

And finally Power Rangers does something with Billy Cranston and his autism that a lot of movies/TV shows don’t do with their autistic characters (if there are any) and that is unapologetically celebrate him. To me, Billy was the heart and soul of the movie.

So can we please have more autistic characters that aren’t rude white man-children who’s disabilities are played for laughs, thanks.

IBO 49

I DO NOT LIKE HOW IBO IS GOING TO END

IT’S GETTING MORE AND MORE DEPRESSING, AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT TEKKADAN’S SITUATION, THEY’RE AS GOOD AS DEAD

AND WITH WHAT HAPPENED TO ORGA (I FUCKIN STILL REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS SHIT *CRIES*) AND THE WORDS HE LEFT, IT’S PRETTY MUCH OBVIOUS WHERE TEKKADAN’S HEADING AT

I GAVE UP BELIEVING THAT THIS SERIES WILL HAVE A HAPPY ENDING AND THAT THE ENTIRE TEKKADAN WILL SURVIVE

JFC THIS IS HONESTLY MORE TRAGIC THAN VICTORY GUNDAM

HUSH

I AM SO FUCKING PROUD OF HUSH. SINCE THE START OF S2, I’VE BEEN ROOTING FOR HIM TO FINALLY BECOME A BADASS PILOT. AND HE FUCKING DID. THROUGH HIS HARD WORK AND NOT THE AV SYSTEM. AND HIS CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THO SWIFT, WAS GOOD, TOO! FROM BEING SALTY OVER MIKAZUKI AND AN ASSHOLE TO ATRA, TO ACTUALLY BEING A NICE GUY WHO WAS EVENTUALLY RECOGNIZED BY MIKA WHOM HE ADMIRES. HE MAY NOT BE AS GOOD AS TEKKADAN’S VETERAN PILOTS, BUT HE DID MANAGE TO BE RECOGNIZED BY MIKAZUKI, AND THAT IS, A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT.

I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, HUSH

MACKY AND GAELIO

MACKY’S DEATH WAS ALREADY A GIVEAWAY WITH THE EPISODE TITLE (FUMITAN ADMOSS, ANEW RETURNER… REMEMBER?)

MACKY AND GAELIO ARE OBVIOUS EXPIES TO CHAR AZNABLE AND GARMA ZABI, BUT THE TWIST HERE TO THE CHAR AND GARMA EXPY IS THAT, THE GARMA CLONE LIVED AND GOT TO KILL THE CHAR CLONE. WHEN VIDAR WAS INTRODUCED, I WAS LIKE, “HEY ANOTHER CHAR CLONE (MASKED MAN), BUT THE VOICE SAYS IT’S GAELIO” AND IT WAS AN INTERESTING TWIST TO HAVE GAELIO SURVIVE. WHAT HAPPENED TO GAELIO AND MACKY IN S2 IS LIKE “WHAT IF GARMA SURVIVED?” 

MACKY IS AN ASSHOLE. IT WAS PRETTY HARD TO TELL WHAT MACKY’S ALIGNMENT IS SINCE HE HAS THAT CHAR CLONE BRANDED ON HIM. HE WASN’T A GOOD GUY AND HE WAS NEITHER A BAD GUY. HE’S A FRICKIN GRAY SHADE IN THE SERIES. BUT DAMN THIS EPISODE GOT ME CRYING FOR BOTH HIM AND GAELIO. AND SEVERAL WEEKS BACK, WHEN A FRIEND OF MINE GOT INTO IBO, WE HAD THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT “WHAT IF MACKY TOLD HIS PLANS TO HIS FRIENDS OR RELIED ON HIS FRIENDS?” AND IN EPISODE 49, WE GOT OUR ANSWER AS TO WHY MACKY PREFERRED THE LIFE OF A LONE WOLF.

AND WHAT ELSE MAKES MACKY THE BEST CHAR CLONE? SINCE HE’S A CHAR CLONE, AND HE HAS BETRAYED HIS FRIENDS, WE WERE GIVEN THAT IMPRESSION THAT HE WILL BETRAY TEKKADAN. AND THERE WERE SEVERAL TIMES THAT THE STAFF MADE US THINK THAT HE WAS THE ONE BEHIND ORGA’S ASSASSINATION.

BUT HE DID NOT

MACKY DID NOTHING WRONG.

…ONLY TO HIS FRIENDS YES, AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT MACKY’S CAUSE, MACKY’S INTENTION IS GOOD, TBH. GETTING RID OF A CORRUPT ORGANIZATION? IT’S GOOD ALRIGHT. BUT IN ORDER TO DO THAT, HE HAD TO BETRAY HIS FRIENDS.

MACKY HAD A BIT OF A CONTRADICTION HERE. BECAUSE IN THEIR FINAL DUEL, MACKY DID SAY THAT HE WILL KILL GAELIO FOR REAL. MACKY REALLY DID SEE GAELIO AS A FRIEND, AND FROM THE WAY HE SAID THAT HE’LL KILL GAELIO FOR REAL, HE MUST HAVE HAD SECOND THOUGHTS ON KILLING GAELIO THAT HE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO NOT KILL GAELIO, OR HE INTENTIONALLY DID NOT KILL GAELIO.

GAELIO IS TOO NICE. HE’S STILL THAT NICE GUY WE LOVED FROM S1. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY WHEN YOU MESS WITH THE NICE GUYS, RIGHT?

THE QUESTION NOW IS, WHAT WILL GAELIO’S DISPOSITION NOW BE? MACKY IS ALREADY OUT OF THE FORMULA. WILL HE STILL SIDE WITH RUSTAL, OR IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE ON HIS MIND? IDK, BUT I NOTICED FROM EPISODE 46 OR 47 THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING OFF ABOUT GAELIO, AND IN EPISODE 49, HE SEEMS TO HAVE HIS OWN THOUGHTS ABOUT THE SITUATION AGAINST TEKKADAN AND GJALLARHORN.

Monday was nice, sunny and it seemed like summer was almost here, but then the sky started to look cloudy and now it hasn’t stopped raining since yesterday
I want the sun back! The sun is warm, happy and keeps me awake, when I see clouds I just want to go back to bad and sleep until the summer
But all this rain remebered me that in my old school, when it rained a lot and our only way out of the school become a river, we used to joke about using our umbrellas as boats, and this is pretty much how it looked in my head (maybe with a kid instead of a pony)

Also this poor character is the sister to my Sona, the poor pony hates water and I keep drawing her in the rain, why am I soo mean to her?

lowkey like………i’m looking back on 2016 and how it carried into the beginning of 2017 and those entire 17-18 months were some of the most psychologically traumatizing and I can confidently say I’ve made it to the other side and I am so happy to have really found the inner strength to pull myself up again and it serves as a reminder to myself at least that I am stronger than I think I am and i am really just very proud of that and look to the future with an open mind and an open heart and a smile on my face 

So, my old trusted D50 has a new home

Yesterday, over a great Cuban lunch of fried yuca (cassava), twice-fried green plantains, fried green plantain chips, and fried maduros (ripe plantains) (sometimes a vegan has to sacrifice and eat just fried stuff, great fried stuff; what can I do?) for me and what looked like a great Cuban steak sandwich for her, I passed on my old baby, my D50, to a former student. We had a great time, talking for almost two hours about a little of everything. 

My one stipulation, which she accepted, was that if she loses her desire to photograph, she find a good home for my baby.

I am very happy, very excited for her new journey, and for mine.

Funny how an inanimate object can set in motion all kinds of inspiration and dialogue.

How do people fall in love? Like you meet a person and they're nice and you're having a good time and then what happens? What is love? To you anyways?

To me love is indescribable. You look at a person and everything makes sense. You want to be with them forever. Everything is just so happy and natural. For me its hard to describe now since i am no longer in love. Any other descriptions guys??

anonymous asked:

I'm curious about your opinion on the EA Funds. Wouldn't you like more resources dedicated to charities like Tostan and research transparency/quality initiatives? What could be currently the strongest argument against EA? I would probably point out to the difficulties in defining "effectiveness" and the game-theoretic principle of reciprocity in moral considerations (eigenaltruism).

I am very happy there is some research being done into what charities are most effective. I’m not sure how valuable the marginal dollar / hour-of-smart-person’s time is to determining charity effectiveness right now.

My guess is that insofar as it’s valuable, it’s valuable in a centralized/coordinated way. That is, if I look into charities, and you look into charities, and twenty other people look into charities on their own, we’re partly duplicating each other’s work and coming up with non-intercomparable estimates. I would rather just fund GiveWell and OpenPhil really hard than come up with some sort of distributed charity-evaluating community thing (though probably we need a *few* independents to act as gadflies and make sure the centralized people don’t become too complacent)

If by “the EA funds” you mean the funds where everyone pools their money and then one person is randomly selected to work hard to figure out what’s the best thing to do with it, I’m not too clear on why that’s better than giving to GiveWell, who are already working hard to figure out the best thing to do with money.

The strongest argument against EA is that politics is so much more effective than everything else that everything else shouldn’t even register. A 1% chance of making Congress do something slightly different on foreign aid might matter more than all the bed nets in Zanzibar.

(this is ignoring complicated moral arguments that kind of reduce to Pascal’s Wager and get so confusing that “just be nice to your family and try not to think about morality more than that or else bad things will happen” is a reasonable alternative)

Laucy VS Camren

Well, this is not a theory. I got up to these pics and they hit me like a truck. I’m not a morning person, but this even overpowered what an alarm could do.

I admit I wasn’t on the best state to see these pics because I just got my heart broken. So seeing the 1st pic posted on wildflyme’s instagram was breaking my heart even more because I’m a camren shipper af.

These pics are so sensual, yes. They both look really happy. With the fragile state of me right now, even the 1st pic had me so down and sad because my ship has lost in the middle of nowhere LOL. It felt as if my heart was ripped to two.

But again, this is media. One thing that is consistent about me wherever I am on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr) is that I don’t trust media anymore. MTV is one of them. I don’t even believe in Billboard, then how can I even trust MTV? This is the link

After all, we all know, these are from a photoshoot in November 2016.

There are many possibilities out there, but I’m just gonna narrow them down to 2 possibilities here. If I list all the possibilities one by one, it might end up like a novel. It’s better to just focus on two.

1. Laucy did date just like what was mentioned in the article and Camren was NOT real or even if Camren might be dating at some point

2. Laucy did date just like what was mentioned in the article, but Camren IS real as well

You know, when you read these 2 possibilities, you will feel like, “No, I think..” or “Wait.. but..” Save it. Let’s just focus on these 2, because I know it’s a never ending debate if we talk about all possibilities.

But now, let’s see the big picture and let’s stop with “No, Camren is real” and “No, Laucy is real” debate. Let’s look at another point of view here. What if both ships are real?

For me, the 2nd possibility is what I believe. You know I don’t trust media anymore just like what I said earlier. But, what was mentioned in MTV is STILL one of the many possibilities, right? We can’t just exclude it just because we are denying that Laucy is real.

Laucy might be real at some point (or not). They mentioned they dated on and off for a few years. They have known each other since high school. The context of “a few years” might be around 2 - 3 years. That’s my definition. 4 years for a relationship for me is a long time. I can’t define it as only “a few” years. But, what if this happened before Camila and Lauren met each other? Or what if this happened before Camila and Lauren realized they fell in love with each other? For God’s sake, this might happened during the X Factor as well, and Laucy & Camren might be a complicated love triangle (okay, I’m delusional but this is one of the million possibilities out there, right?)

It was mentioned in MTV article that they did this photoshoot as part of their coming out. It was mentioned “They did really like each other” but there was no timeline mentioned about when they had the relationship. It was only mentioned “They dated for a few years”.

Those photoshoot pics might break my heart, but I’m not losing my Camren heart. No.. Why? Because of these.

I’m sorry but they look really happy here as well? Or are you still gonna call me delusional?

Well, these gifs seem too friendly though. But these iconic moments will always be in our minds.

Your other expressions can lie, but your eyes will never lie. These gifs are heart-warming to be honest.

Then, these indirects.

Lol, I’m sorry for being extra on this. But have you realized that the article confirmed yet killing Laucy at the same time?

I’m NOT losing hope on what I call as true love. I might be so lowkey about it on my instagram and twitter accounts cause I use those platform for another purpose. I never posts about Camren there. But here, in Tumblr, I’m quite vocal about it. I might not be as intense as the other Camren accounts, and I might be lowkey about it, but since the very beginning my fan account was made, I AM a Camren shipper.

You have your right to believe what you wanna believe, but I believe in true love and that revolves around Camren, because the way Lauren looks at Camila is love.

P.S. Guys, I don’t know why but on my phone the pictures shown are only a few. Even the indirect pics are only one which is shown. Is it like that in your phone as well? Because I posted this using my laptop. If you see it from the laptop or computer, you’ll see all the trolls lol
