do people still play that

Niantic announced they have 65 million people playing Pokémon GO last month and some people feel the constant need to ask, “Do people still play this game?”

Like, I’m sorry you got bored with it after a week, but yes, people still play this game. Stop asking like it makes you look cool like you’ve “outgrown” it or something.

…you know what it feels like to get booped off an edge. You just…let it happen and die a little inside is all.

Watching a series of unfortunate events on Netflix just makes my heart aches about a PJO series. I really like how they did just 2 episodes per book and I wouldn’t mind a similar (ish) thing for the PJO books, but here me out on this and why it totally makes sense. 

A Series of Unfortunate Events has 13 books, if you do the whole a book = a season and only release a season a year then it would take 13 years to make them, and it doesn’t make sense because you’re working with kids and you want them to still be kids by the end of the last season. This way instead of 13 seasons you only get 3 seasons and the kids are still kids by the end of it. Which is totally what you need with books like Percy Jackson/HOO you have 5 books and people like to believe a book= a year but it’s wrong. 

The first book starts with a 12 years old Percy who is a few months away of turning 13 and it ends with a 16 year old Percy who literally just turned 16, the events of PJO happens in 3 years and a few months. While the Heroes of Olympus series has 5 books but the evens of the books happens in the span of  6-8 months. If you do a PJO Tv Show or a movie with 1 book = 1 year and even if you start with a 12-13 years old actor, he is gonna be 17-18 by the end and then if you also want to do HOO that is a 5 books saga, the guy is gonna end up being a 22-23 years old playing a 16 because the saga ends a few days before Percy’s 17 birthday,

But if a PJO TV show happens and they do what what they did with ASOUE where they adapted more than a book per season… You get 10 books in only 5-6 season, if you start with 12 years old they will end up the last season (Blood of Olympus) somewhere between 17-18 years old and honestly? That’s not that bad if we consider that most of high school tv shows consist of people on their mid twenties or even thirty playing a 16 years old.  

So my idea would be this:

Season 1:  18 episodes

  • Ep 1-7 The Lighting Thief
  • Ep 8-14 Sea of Monsters
  • Ep 15-18 Titan’s curse Part 1

Season 2:  21 episodes

  • Ep 1-4 Titan’s Curse Part 2
  • Ep 5-12 The Battle of The Labyrinth 
  • Ep13-21 The Last Olympian

Season 3:  20 episodes

  • Ep 1-10 The Lost Hero
  • Ep 11-20 The Son of Neptune

Season 4:  20 episodes

  • Ep 1-10 The Mark of Athena
  • Ep 11-20  The House of Hades

Season 5:  12 episodes

  • Blood of Olympus*

*maybe make a christmas especial of 2 hours of Nico’s and Reyna’s adventures and focus the season in just the seven.

(✿ ♥‿♥) Santa Beard Appreciation 

AU where instead of going to Samwell, Jack starts a widely successful Publicly Broadcast show for children.

Jack learns that he is great with kids after coaching them for a little over two years. Moreover, kids are good with Jack. There is no pressure to be anything other than who he is.


It all starts with a local news program doing a fluff piece on Jack Zimmermann’s coaching ability. But then it turned into something completely different when Jack skated onto camera and started to introduce every single one of his kids and what was special about them. He was…really enchanting actually. He didn’t ever really talk down to them. Jack just treated them as a tiny friend. 

They ARE his tiny friends, but that’s not the point. 

The footage they got of “snack time” was really the best. Imagine a good 16 kids piled around this massive man teaching them the best way to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 

 It should have been obvious that a local channel would contact him. It still surprises Jack. They want him to host a show? Why? Everyone always teased him about how impersonable he was during interviews. Is it because he’s Jack Zimmermann’s son? Or Alicia’s? 

Jack asks all of these questions to his mother and she just laughs. “You made a PB&J interesting to 16 kids just by being you”

Jack figures it wouldn’t hurt to give it a shot.

Happy birthday to Mitsubun! 

Long story short, this was not supposed to be his birthday art, but since I started this back in October (I think), I decided to hold it until November 6th because I don’t have time to do something else and my wrist has been hurting and nhgmfgnmf. I admit that I had some fun with this drawing. (-w-)

Thank you @lustfullyleocrawford for your words of encouragement during the WIP [x]. @pumpkin-cinderella, here is the final product since you were curious about it. :3c

Please do not repost elsewhere; reblogs are a-okay! Thank you!

Yeesh. So Cuphead is really difficult, which I’d already heard about so I feel I’ve been warned. I’m slowly crawling through it, but boy I wish the developers would introduce an update with an easy mode for more casual players who love the animation and music.

What frustrates me a lot more than the game itself is the community response to the many people who like me, have expressed a desire for an easy mode. Every place I’ve seen it suggested, there’s a flood of nasty, angry responses, moaning about how games are all too easy these days and aggressively insulting whoever suggests it.

So much so that I’ve passed the point of wanting an easy mode so that my experience of the game will be more enjoyable and entered the point where I want an easy mode so these awful nerdbros will have rage-induced aneurysms. 

anonymous asked:

Who's Mr. Rogers?

I’m…I’m honestly really surprised to even receive this question, but I suppose I shouldn’t be? Could be you didn’t grow up in the U.S., or you’re very young- or maybe both. 

Mr. Rogers was the host of a children’s show on Public Television (right alongside Sesame Street) called Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. It ran for over thirty years; millions of kids grew up on Mr. Rogers, become adults, and then have their kids grow up watching him, he was that much of a staple of so many people’s childhoods.  My Mom grew up on Mr. Rogers.

Geeze, it’s been so long I actually have to think about it. It was as much about instilling universal values of goodness as it was about educating children. Mr. Rogers was a Presbyterian Minister, but he had no issue was doing little segments about science and nature, either on his own or usually with a special guest (like Bill Nye the Science Guy!) that would show up at his “house” like a neighbor stopping by to borrow a cup of sugar and explain the water cycle. 

There was a toy trolley that went a magical land of make-believe run by puppets, and a bunch of other stuff I really can’t remember because it’s been literally twenty plus years. Basically, when you boil right down to it- Mr. Roger’s always asked kids in his opening song “Won’t You Be my Neighbor?” He was a religious man who took the values of kindness and showing love to one’s neighbor to heart. He didn’t play a character, but showed his honest self. He wasn’t full of gags, fast-paced, or excessively silly. He was just…Mr. Rogers. A genuinely nice grandfatherly figure in his iconic sweaters. Mr. Rogers was a rare, wonderful, untarnished Good in this world.

That whole post from before about Mr. Rogers being angry that some KKK trash had set up a hotline with a Mr. Rogers impersonator to say horrible racist things to children- the idea of Mr. Rogers even getting angry just blows my mind, because he was- in fact- that soft spoken and nice. That fact that he went after the KKK? That part doesn’t surprise me at all. 

And it is just so Mr. Rogers that even when he was angry enough to take the Klan to court the harshest language he could muster was “that really got my goat” like my God I am genuinely sad he died some years back with this fresh resurgence of Hate flying their flags we could really use him around right now about now to remind us what being a Good Neighbor is about.

i read the tags under my hanzo+healers post and i have to say

yes, if any player, not just a sniper, is out of your reach or is too far away from the point/payload, don’t bother that much. these people should be smart enough to understand that it’s up to them to take care of themselves in situations like this and they should see the risks of getting into fights on their own. i totally understand the anxiety you can feel when you see someone with critical health and you can’t help them, but if they really want your help, they will know what to do. when i play hanzo and i’m somewhere out of my healer’s reach, i either go to the nearest healthpack or go to the healer for heals. when i play d.va/reaper and i have to get closer to the enemy since their weapons have short range, i get it that my healer most likely can’t follow me into this fight because they risk their own life and lives of the rest of our teammates, if they die, they won’t be able to heal them. so i attack, then return to safety and my healer. if these people start spamming i need healing, thinking that you have to and you can heal them from across the map/behind the walls/when you can’t even see them and they’re not cooperating with you in any way, fuck them, honestly. they definitely shouldn’t blame the healer if they die. 

i was talking specifically about those situations when your healer is just straight up ignoring you. like when my healer and i are both on the objective/payload and we’re standing meter away from each other, facing each other, i have 2 hp left and they don’t even react, even after i say that i need healing. i am that person that never says i need healing, i want to trust my healers that they know what they’re doing and if they’re prioritizing someone else at the moment or someone’s in trouble and they’re helping them out and i still have 100 hp left, it’s fine, i can wait. i have allied health bars on all the time, i can see if someone need heals more than me. but when i’m extremely low on health and i’m about to die and my healer just keeps healing zarya on full health??? when we’re playing on escort maps, you can be sure that i will stay glued to the payload most of the time and i’m not a problem to heal at all. and i’m still getting ignored for some reason. this does happen with me when i play hanzo more often than any other hero. because, you know, haha stupid hanzo can’t shoot anything never stays on the payload hanzo switch why did you pick him fuck you we just lost because of you. 

and i just know i’d be able to do so much better if only my healers actually cared about me or my teammates, too, because when i see someone else being ignored, i feel just as bad. mostly i panic if i know that i can’t rely on my healer and running around with low health stresses me out a lot. what good i am if i can’t finish an enemy off because i had 20 hp left and any hit, even the most weak and the least accurate or completely accidental will kill me. when i played mercy regularly and i saw my teammates, including hanzos, being attacked by someone, i always healed them until they killed that enemy. and that worked, it may take them a few second, but don’t lose hope in them, they can do it if you watch over them. now i feel the same, but in reverse, i see that i’m getting healed and i don’t have to worry about getting attacked that much so i can concentrate on my own shots. it’s so frustrating, doing well but not being able to keep it up because you never get heals and then you die. 

People: Why do you still play Toontown?

Me (externally) : Idk, it’s fun

Me (internally): Similar to people who can’t let go of childhood objects because it brings them comfort, that is also me. Toontown was the good light in a traumatic childhood and relieves so much stress in the world and replaces it with a happy atmosphere and actually helps with my mood so-

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

Did someone say more flower crowns? Probably not but here you go anyway.
