control minds

“I forgot” does not mean “I didn’t care enough to remember”

Wait a second. What if Ronaldo’s theory about rock people putting “mind controlling minerals” into human water supplies has some truth to it? Is it something the gems did when they first invaded to keep humans from trying to interfere with their plans?

Is that why the humans in the show have so little interest in all the gem structures lying around everywhere? You think they’d be crawling with archaeologists and tourists, but they’re always empty and abandoned. The strawberry battlefield, the communication tower, the lunar sea spire, the kindergarten, Pink Diamond’s palanquin, etc… all of them were places Buddy Budwick was able to visit safely and record in his journal. Is he really the only human who ever tried to explore those places? Why? What happened to the human race’s curiosity of the unknown?

Also why the heck isn’t the Crystal Gems Temple a bigger draw for tourism in Beach City? It’s this monumental building carved into the side of a cliff, and I doubt there’s anything else like it nearby. Yeah, the gems wouldn’t want humans climbing around on it and taking pictures, but why hasn’t anyone ever tried? Are we supposed to believe that no one besides Greg ever tried to cross that dinky chain link fence?

And let’s not forget all the corrupted gems running around. They’re all over the world, and some of them must have had run ins with humans before the CGs caught them. What happened in those instances? We’ve seen that humans can fight corrupted gems and win (i.e. Connie, Sadie, the Pizza Family helping the CGs). So how often do humans have to fight gem monsters if the CGs aren’t there yet?

So I guess all of my questions here boil down to this; why are the humans so complacent about all the weird gem stuff around them? Is it natural for them or is there really a mind control conspiracy? It just seems weird that more people aren’t that concerned about all the danger and weirdness that keeps happening.


On this day in music history: March 25, 1968 - The fifty-eighth and final episode of “The Monkees” TV series airs on the NBC television network. Titled “Mijacogeo - The Frodis Caper”, the episode is co-written and directed by Micky Dolenz. The plot involves the band matching wits against the insane wizard Glick (played by comedic actor Rip Taylor), who is out to control the minds of television viewers throughout the world. The episode also features a cameo by folk musician Tim Buckley (father of singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley) at the end of the program. The show features the song “Zor And Zam” from the “Birds The Bees & The Monkees” album. Growing dissent between The Monkees and Screen Gems over creative control, combined with declining ratings lead NBC to pull the plug on the series in spite of it having won two Emmy Awards the previous year including Outstanding Comedy Series.

starwars-aesthetics  asked:

what bothered you about tfa?

the uncreativity? u have like….a whole universe to shape and imagine and what did disney do??? copy paste ep 4.

also they shot right past “acceptable amount of references to the old material” into “wet dream of a star wars fanboy who can finally do everything he ever dreamed of” territory 

and tHEY WAY they did the above. the entire scene of rey immediately being able to use mind control is in no relation to what the old movies have established.

i mean whatever . if u are afraid to create new stuff go ahead and copy the shit that worked out last time but at least respect the established rules

I haven't seen Pacific Rim. Tell me what you love about it?

where do i even start!!!

first off just the sci-fi worldbuilding is Amazing and within the first five minutes you go, “oh of course we would fight an alien invasion with giant mind-controlled robots!”

the characters are all so great and well-rounded and the Cinnamon Topography

the colors are gorgeous and the dialogue is simultaneously witty and inspiring??

i could talk for hours about this movie

  • what she says: I'm fine.
  • what she means: Kishimoto wrote a love story that transcends time, labels and limitations. Naruto and Sasuke are two expressions of the same energy. They're both determined, capable of incredible, deep emotion, easily attract loyal followers, and were always watching and wanting to be with each other. At the same time, they are different enough to be perfect complements. They compensate for each others weaknesses and compound each others strengths. This isn't a relationship; it's an artistic masterpiece. A symphony. A composition that puts the Mona Lisa, Taj Mahal, Sistine Chapel, and Great Wall to shame. Just look at the parallels between them, and the story of the sun and moon. Note the phallic symbolism of the statues in The Valley of The End. They are each other's first, last and only. The fact that they're not 'together' in every possible meaning of the word will haunt me until the day I die, possibly beyond. I am not okay.
