i never like cared an extra whole lot abt disproving that scene because i didnt wanna be let down if it was real but a lot of it makes Much More sense if its fake; though i also think john was being heavily manipulated and maybe even drugged and hypnotized so i think even if the beating Was real (which its ? not tbh) i dont think johns a Bad Dude hes like in EXTREME situations that fuck him up……but again i dont think its real lol
So Pepsi, you said you're a photo hound. Do you use digital or film? Also, side note, it sounds like you're more into landscape and still life stuff anyway, but don't take pictures of people without their permission. It's... rude. And there are some people on campus that you /REALLY/ don't want to be rude to.
Photo hound! That’s a nice way to put it. I’m partial to using digital myself. I never really learned how to do the whole ‘Red Room Chemical Mix’ thing myself, but I heard that that is going to be one of the main projects in one of my classes, so I’m excited to officially learn how to work the chemicals!
And you are right, I’m more into landscapes. Goodness, did you gather all this from my posts or are you psychic? But don’t worry, I always ask my subjects if they want a photo before I take one. Unless it’s maybe a selfie, but I only really take those with people I know, so it’s usually ok.
Hi, everyone! Believe it or not, it’s my birthday again. This past year has involved a lot of change for me. When l look at what’s different in my life, it makes me think about my long-term goals and the prospect of growth.
I feel less certain about what I want my future to look like than ever before. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t feel discouraged at many points during this past year. I’ve been battling a lot of “I’ll never” thoughts– “I’ll never be able to do this” and “I’ll never have that”, etc.
But when I think about how much has changed since my last birthday, it reminds me of all the things I’ve done and all the things I have that used to be “I’ll never"s. Things that I’ve accomplished and attained purely by living my life and experiencing new things and continuing to try, one day at a time.
I don’t think anyone, at any age, should look at themselves and conclude that by this point in their lives they know the ultimate limit of their capabilities with certainty. Even when my mind is full of "I’ll never"s, it comforts me to think that the things I struggle with now will one day fail to impede me, so long as I continue to try and be better. I know that my biggest, most daunting goals for the far future aren’t going to sneak up on me. On my way there I’ll become a person with the skill, experience, discipline, and stability to achieve them.
My life is better than it was a year ago. I’m a better person than I was on my last birthday. I’ve done more and I have more. I’m proud, and grateful, and excited.
I’m looking forward to the next one. And that’s all I wanted to say. Thank you.
When Credence decided to go to Babylon, the most famous gay nightclub in New York, he had only planned for it to be his one and only act of rebellion against his Ma. He had not planned to get picked up by an older, devastatingly handsome man before he even had a chance to enter the club. He definitely had not planned to lose both his virginity, and his heart, to said man in the course of a single night.
When Percival picked up a sad looking twink outside Babylon, he had only intended for the boy to be just another, fully consenting, perfectly legal, one night stand. He had not expected the boy to confess to being underage, and a fucking virgin, as they laid panting on the bed. He definitely had not expected the boy to also declare his undying love and start following him around like a lovesick puppy.
They mean her as an example. Here, they say, here is what happens to those who would defect, defy, rebel. Here is the cooked blood and collapsed charred flesh of your sister, of the thing who was once your sister, of the anomaly, the broken.
Here, they say, lies sedition. See how broken it is. How bloodied. See the obscene redness of treachery’s blood against the moon-paleness of her skin. See how small she is, without her armour, see how weak, how she breaks before blaster fire.
Here she lies, the example, she-who-would-have-left. Here is what happens to the Troopers who would follow in the footsteps stamped by FN-2187, here is the example.
The problem the First Order never considered: the example is subjective. A body, cooked and smouldering by a blaster hail, a girl of intermediate age, hair blackened and wisping – cut down by her very squadmates – is meant to say all of the above and more, is meant to stand as a fixed point.
But TQ-7676 watches with his tongue thick in his mouth, his hands sweating within his gauntlets, bright white in a sea of bright white, and he thinks: this is what they do to those who are caught.
everytime someone criticizes an art style of a show i just have to sit silently as, I–an animator–know art inconsistencies happen. Even in anime–esp since the animators are rushed for time.
Have u guys seen the sailor moon reboot (left) versus the blue-ray where they had more time in the world to fix their shit (right)?
imagine if your teacher was like “okay 12 page essay analyzing the all of the symbolism and metaphors in Shakespeare’s Hamlet” due tonight before midnight. You’d rush through the whole hecking thing–you’ve never read hamlet your entire life–you’d sparknote that shit–it’d be the saddest paper you’d ever turn in you’d probably get flagged down for grammar/syntax errors and plagiarism. That is what the networks are like to animators.
“But they get breaks so they have no excuse” It takes a week to animate 6-10 seconds, on “breaks” between new episodes is when they’re most likely working on new episode animation and most likely when a network has them on a deadline.
Alex Hirsh had to sleep under his desk when he directed gravity falls. What people fail to realize is that it’s A LOT OF WORK. If there’s art inconsistencies don’t blame the animators–blame the network big guys who give them no time to get a project done! Can they go and fix it? Most of the time, no. Would they go back and fix it if we could? Probably!!! What’s stopping them from fixing it? Keeping their jobs. Turning in something is better than nothing. And let’s not forget that most american animation is exported and done in korea, so on top of story-boarding they have to send it overseas so that animators can work on it. It’s a long process.
Don’t blame mistakes on what the big guys up there tell animators to get done.Things go wonky all the time especially if we’re rushed, that’s a human thing that happens. Ever been in a overly-busy Starbucks and they got your drink order wrong? Same situation. What Networks need to do is be more flexible on artists so that they can get their shows animated quality over quantity–not the other way around. But they have a schedule and they want things done quick–unfortunately. And that sucks for animators.
i have so much respect for the jtv writers and thank them for creating a show that so many fans across the world have fallen in love with, but i’m really disappointed with michael’s death. i understand that this is just a show and everyone will tell me that i’m making a big deal about this, but i (along with most of the fans) always loved this show for its light hearted fun and lovable characters. i’m not trying to tell the writers how to do their job, but i don’t think they really understand their fanbase. most people did not watch the show for the suspense of “ooo what character is gonna die next?!” but instead to see the characters they love find their way in life. the show is gonna lose a lot of viewers from this, which makes me sad, because there was so much more to the show than just michael and jane’s relationship, but the fact that they dangled their (adorable) relationship in front of us for a few episodes just to kill him off for dramatic effect may work for a show like lost or pretty little liars where people want the thrills, but this does not fit well with the show, and i’m pretty annoyed that they thought this would make the show more interesting.
