do tags actually do anything

what if we just stole NO cars and took the bus

Ear Biscuits: Uncut

So Ear Biscuits got released at midnight eastern time last night, and my trusty podcast app, Overcast (not a sponsor, but seriously, best podcast app ever), immediately downloaded it for me and gave me a notification for it as I got in bed. I caved and listened to the first few seconds just to see if it really was the episode or if it was I don’t know, a blank file? This is what I heard.

The episode that was released about 20 minutes AFTER this one does not start like this. I recorded all the way to the actual episode opener, though my version doesn’t have the intro music playing over it.

Sorry about the audio quality, I tried to reduce the noise as much as possible. What you’re listening to is a recording of my phone playing a recording, so there was only so much I could do. But it’s worth a listen just to hear an innuendo-laden exchange between Rhett and Link involving soft and hard sticks.

anonymous asked:

I don't watch voltron (I plan to but haven't had the time yet), so could you please explain the sheith discourse? Idk anything about any of the characters specifically, but just based on appearances I've always liked that better than klance.

Oh my sweet summer child, I wish you well if you ever decide to brave through this fandom hell. Okay so I’ll sum this up because honestly I do not wish to talk about this discourse anymore.

Everything started shortly after the show aired on Netflix on June 10th. Due to Keith’s and Shiro’s close bond, familiarity with one another and always attempting to protect each other, they became a popular ship. So popular in fact that Josh Keaton, Shiro’s voice actor, acknowledged this on his blog and even coined the name for the ship: sheith.

It didn’t take long until he and Neil Kaplan, Zarkon’s voice actor, started mentioning sheith on their twitters as well. To top it off, Chris Palmer, who directs the show, also made this Shiro drawing with the description “Shiro loves you, baby” and tagged “he is looking at Keith.” Honestly with so many people involved with the show (even if the VAs aren’t directly involved, it was still nice) showing support for the ship, and considering Montgomery and dos Santos who previously worked on The Legend of Korra are producers in Voltron, a lot of people believe they could become canon like Korra and Asami.

Things blew up however when SDCC happened in July. Tim Hedrick, Montgomery and dos Santos who were at the event were asked by a fan about the ages of the characters, since the only clue we had was the DreamWorks’ site saying they’re teenagers. Pidge is 14, Shiro is 25 at most and everyone else is late teens.

However, many fans interpreted it as proof that Shiro is factually 25 and the other three are 17 and claim that Shiro/Paladin ships are pedophilia, wrong, incorrect and a bunch of other nasty things. They use the video as confirmation and refuse each and any other evidence to contrary, even when it comes from the same people that were in the video. Some even attack the voice actors over it, which is why Josh Keaton stopped talking about ships altogether on Twitter. The truth is, most people before and after the video saw and still see Hunk, Keith and Lance as being 18-19 and Shiro as 20-22 at most, not 25 since he doesn’t even look that old.

There is a whole lot more to this story, including but not limited to the fact that the official comic still mentions they’re five teenagers even after the SDCC event, Josh Keaton confirmed on twitter that ages were never brought up during recording and how Hedrick, Montgomery and dos Santos refuse to answer any all questions regarding the ages, and someone found a video prior to the age video where Montgomery talked about Shiro being a student, not an instructor as people against the ship kept mentioning. Recently Pidge’s voice actor also snapchatted about Shiro/Keith and Shiro/Keith/Lance. Last week it was revealed that the garrison where the paladins previously studied at is college like education and a military base as well, meaning they couldn’t be younger than 18.

Tbh the whole thing is a mess, the only thing we know for sure is that the creators themselves apparently never gave this too much thought in the first place because they wanted people to see the characters as being the age they believe them to be. And now they either refuse to talk about it anymore or contradict each other in what they have to say about it, but antis refuse to stop and continue harassing shippers and the ship tags daily with violent threats and name calling.

Incidentally, NYCC is coming up this week and the same three crew members will there. It is speculated that more fans will ask them about the ages and I’m already dreading the next wave of shitstorm coming this friday.

For more about Shiro/Paladin discussions, this post is a good post about it.

a-lighthouse-a-man-a-city replied to your photo “The scar the trailer didn’t show. Well, my speculation about what it…”

Hey folks, this artist is actually racist af. Feel free to message me for more info, it is a great pic but I refuse to support the artist because of some huge past issues they are apparently trying to “fix” with this. No more notes on this post, pass it on. They don’t deserve credit for POC representation after what they’ve done

“Huge past issues” = Me drawing a caveman Kylo with matted hair (that I called “dreadlocks” for lack of a better word, english isn’t my first language and in french, there’s only one word to describe it) 1 year ago and telling you all to fuck off when you went crazy on me and my friends for this one doodle because I refused to consider myself racist for drawing it. What is considered racist or problematic in your country might not be in another, I know how shocking it can be to learn that North America isn’t the center of the world and designated world leader of what’s considered politically correct. 

Jfc take a step back and look at what your life has become.

Yesterday, one of you made a post and compared me to a klan member. I have been told to choke and die, to kill myself. About 50 hateful posts calling me slurs have been reported to me in the past 6 months. You are all acting as if I have been posting the worst hate speech in the fandom and been harassing me for a year because I drew a picture you don’t agree with.

I know people who would have hurt themselves or fallen deep into depression for less, how do you sleep at night after telling someone to die over a picture?

And now you get mad because I have been drawing Finn and it has gotten a lot of notes.

But guess what? I have been successfully drawing him multiple times in the past, and I’ll draw him again. And I’ll get better at it and my pictures of him will continue to gain attention. 

Because I like Finn.
 
I don’t give a shit about your “POC representation” points, contrary to you I like a character because he’s special to me, not because it will make me look better and “woke” to my online friends. 

You don’t like it? That’s cool, then block me. That’s the magical door to the land of to never having to see my art again.

Because if you don’t, then believe me, it’s not the last time you see my art on your dashboard.


I’m incredibly terrified excited to announce that I’m writing a fic!!!

It’s no secret that I have an overwhelming amount of feels for Tsukki. I have spent a shameful amount of time analyzing his character, speculating his motivations, and developing countless head canons. A couple weeks back one of my dear friends on here made a suggestion that I try writing. At the time I totally brushed her off like that was the craziest thing in the world..and here we are now, hah.

This fic will follow Kei’s development from the moment Karasuno lost to Seijoh in Season 1 all the way through the end of Season 3. My goal is to give you all an inside look at what (I think) Kei possibly went through all that time. Actual canon events and conversations will be used (and tweaked, at times) along with many new situations that I think may have happened behind the scenes while the focus was more on Hinata/Kageyama. (And let’s be honest, I really just needed an excuse to write third gym antics)

Chapter 1 will be posted this Friday, but to thank you all for taking the time to read all of this rambling, there is a preview here under the cut! =^^=

This is my bujo spread for the week so far 💘

from my studygram

google search “7 boys who ruined my life”

Not bothering to give this a title bc it’s after 10pm and I still have an assignment I need to finish, but I had to write this scene first for some reason.  So here you go.  Stan in the Stay-at-Home Stan AU finding out one of his daughters is a polydactyl.


               “Here she is, all cleaned up,” the nurse said, handing a bundle to Stan. “Daisy Leigh McGucket.  She seems like a special little girl.”

               “Of course she is, she’s my kid,” Stan said gruffly as he carefully parted the folds of the blanket to look at his daughter.  He and Angie had only gotten a brief glance of the girls before they were whisked away to be washed and weighed, so this was really his first time seeing her.  Daisy peered up at him with wide blue eyes.  Stan smiled.  “She’s got your peepers, Angie.”

               “This one’s got yours,” Angie said, smiling down at the other infant, in her arms.  Daisy yawned and stretched an arm up and out, flexing her minute fingers.  Stan’s smile grew broader.  

               “She’s yawnin’.  What, like she’s got somethin’ to be tired from?” he said snarkily.  Angie chuckled.  Stan took a hold of Daisy’s tiny hand.  “Here, your first handshake.  A strong one’s important, ya know.”  His lighthearted mood died upon counting the number of fingers on her hand.  

               Six.  She’s a polydactyl.  Like… Daisy continued to stare at him curiously.  Emotions battled for dominance deep in Stan’s chest.  He swallowed as a single tear ran down his face.  My kid.  I’m holding my kid for the first time.  And she’s- she’s-

               “You’re perfect,” he whispered to her.  “Doesn’t matter how many fingers you’ve got.”  A flash of light startled him.  Stan looked up.  Lute and Harper, two of Angie’s older brothers, were standing in the doorway.  Harper looked at the picture he had just taken.

               “That’s a good photo, right there,” Harper said appreciatively.  “Stan cryin’ while he’s holdin’ his baby girl fer the first time.  Nice and emotional.”  Harper looked up at him with a grin.  “You’ll be a good dad, Stanley.”

I WANNA DIE PEOPLE REALLY BWLIEVE THAT FAKE ASD STORY

YO PROTIP IF THE STORY SAY S9ME STUPID SHIT LIKE

“I was working on a cosplay that nobody would be able to recognize seeing as he was on screen for 3 seconds and we didn’t see his face part of his upper body or lower body and I was workin in a coffee shop, (don’t worry they was cool with my bring my huge rolls of fabrics a hot glue gun a sewing machine and a dummy model as long as I cleaned up lol) and this girl seened it and asked if a was a shipper and then paused which is illogical becuz if she was angry enough to slap me she would of did it right away but don’t worry I called the cops”

IT’S FAKE

Yes, it’s sad my voice actor is being replaced. However, please don’t throw any fists or negativity towards the new seiyuu. No one expected this, especially not Hosoya, so be respectful. We’ll miss him, but after his break there’s no doubt he’ll wind up in other places, so you can go search for other work he’s in after his break if you’re a fan of him. If you simply don’t want my voice changed, then that’s… simply something we can not help. You’ll have to just get used to ti once the change has set in.

It’s always been true.

I wish I could go into my ship’s tag without seeing the posts that are anti and are there because tumblr’s stupid and decided that instead of searching the actual gosh dang tag we’re searching all the gosh dang results that has the ship’s name in them!
