distortings

I have done my best to keep my politics and my platform as an entertainer separate. Honestly, it’s something I struggle with daily, but I hold that line out of respect for my fans and out of disgust for the state of American politics. I believe that today’s hyper-politicized world is a serious distortion of reality. I believe that neighbors who disagree with one another have the capacity to find common ground and regularly do. I believe the politicians we elect to represent us and the diversity of our opinions and lifestyles, are failing us by not seeking that common ground. I’ve chosen to stay publicly apolitical because there are few spaces left that have not been politicized. I have immense respect for those who use their platforms to rally people to that which they believe is right and true. Still, I feel in this climate, my greatest contribution could be to remind people as they stand side by side in a live music venue that we are not as different as our televisions and our political leaders would like us to believe. With this in mind I would appreciate it if politicians and representatives of political parties would refrain from the public use of my music as KellyAnne Conway and the GOP did today at their CPAC convention. My music is about uniting people through our common experience and is not intended as hype tracks for political dog and pony shows.

What is your favorite Edd trait?

Is it cheating to say his reactions?  I love looking at how his emotions distort his head shape, and I love thinking up new expressions for him.  The complete and utter flexibility of his design is deceptively unique to his character. Despite how the wiggling outlines seem, the other characters tend to stay the same shapes for like 90% of their expressions.

History x super powers!gang AU

History is a gang of 5 young men with the potential to develop amazing abilities. Even though they’re already starting to manifest and some of the boys can use them, to truly unlock their full potential History has to collect the missing pieces of the legendary Queen’s crest.

Monopoly is a main driver of inequality, as profits concentrate more wealth in the hands of the few. The effects of monopoly enrage voters in their day-to-day lives, as they face the sky-high prices set by drug-company cartels and the abuses of cable providers, health insurers, and airlines. Monopoly provides much of the funds the wealthy use to distort American politics.

7, 45, 91 :)

7: What’s your strangest talent?

I don’t really have any, unless you count tying cherry stems into knots with my tongue as a talent lol.  Also one the average bear might consider strange is that my IV start success rate is nearly 100%.  I can count on two hands the number of IVs I’ve missed in all my years of practice.  I’m the vein whisperer.

45: What’s the worst injury you’ve ever had?

The most painful was the time I snapped 3 ribs falling off of the monkey bars as a kid.  The worst overall injury experience I’ve ever had (if you can call it an injury) was a spontaneous retinal detachment that took 2 years and 6 surgeries to fix in its entirety, and I suffered a little bit of macular damage secondarily so now I’ve got a touch of central distortion in the right eye.  Also my surgeon was an asshole and it made a bad experience exponentially worse.  It’s the kindness of the nurses and the several anaesthesiologists I had that made it livable. <3 :)

91: You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What is that power?

The ability to breathe underwater.  I love the ocean, so to be able to explore it without the discomfort of scuba gear would be amazing. 

wheres that vine where it gets all distorted and the kid screams “IM GONNA KILL MYSELLLLLF” bc thats just me going about my life rn

Hi, I'm an Onision fan but my older brother says I shouldn't support him because he's a really bad person? I asked him why but he said I should ask you guys since you know a lot about him. I'm just wondering what bad things he's done

Just a few highlights for you, but definitely go through some of these blogs for a better look.
-Preys on teen girls
-Known cheater
-Very manipulative and downright emotionally abusive to the women he dates
-Distorts things to always be the victim
-Attacks people if they don’t agree with everything he says (Ex. Meat eaters, people who circumcise their children)
-Constantly mocks suicidal people, yet claims to care about them.
-He gets into people’s business and tries to control complete strangers (Eugenia)
-Mocks trans people, yet claims his wife falls under a trans label (he also misgenders his wife consistently, but throws a fit of anyone else does)
-Possibly physically abusive, his ex claims he forced her to shave her head and he tried to make Billie do lots of fucked up stuff like be chained up in his basement and get a tattoo that says “I’m a liar”

That’s just a couple things. I encourage you to do research on your own. Know that your brother is just trying to make sure you’ve got good role models.
