“I’d die for her. I love her so much. I don’t know what I would do without her. she’s going through a lot right now. I wish I could just kiss away the pain, make it go away, stop it, kill it! if she, you know, (gets teary eyed) I don’t know what I would do. I’d kill myself. I love that girl. i love her. I love her almost more than I love myself” - Johnny Depp on Winona Ryder (1989)

Tips for giffing sports (esp. hockey)

I see a lot of knew people trying to gif things recently and I wanted to help some people out ith somethings that may be confusing for people who are new to it.

  • You don’t need photoshop or to pay for anything for it. Of course the more money you put into it, the better the quality but the tools exist everywhere for little cost. All you need is access to the internet, some sort of screen recording program, and access to streams (you can use illegal streams but the quality usually sucks). 
  • if your realizing your gifs are frozen when you actually post the gifset to tumblr that’s probably because the gifs are too big. and yes if it’s frozen on your end it’s going to be frozen for everyone else too it’s not your computer glitching. Gifs need to be under 2mb for tumblr. to achieve this i like to keep my gifs to about 2 seconds long sometimes more or less, but 2 seconds at 10 FPS and 500px wide is about average and may need a little cropping but will fit with tumblr.
  • During interviews i usually crop the hell out of gifs which will result in a smaller size gifs and i can usually get it up to 4 seconds, i do this for fights as well. Using a perfect square and fitting it around just the face of the interviewee or the around the players fighting will allow you to double the time. Esp. fights since they are so long i use this method because it’s hard to gif all of it in two second increments. This also allows for smaller dimensions because tumblr width is 500px and if you fit two gifs side by side it’s 250px.
  • going off of size actually i want to reiterate that. 500px wide is the ideal size for gifs on tumblr, you can go smaller i do that a lot but the bigger it is compared to the size tumblr shows the better the quality. Since you can put gifs next to each other you can cut this and half and get the same quality.
  • Putting wide gifs next to each other will make it harder for people to see your gifs. Tall gifs and thin gifs or square gifs tend to be easier for people to see when they’re next to each other. Obviously this doesn’t apply to everything as it’s your gif and you can do whatever you want to it. 
  • Yellow or red text with a black border will show up best over hockey games. The contrast is usually really big on hockey rinks with the white ice and dark jerseys that you usually can’t use black or white text for it to come up over the whole image. I use green sometimes but i just think that looks a little goofier than yellow or red. 
  • If you’re giffing a goal wait for the replay. Yeah the original goal will have the best shot of the celebration but if you’re getting the goal itself wait and record all of the replays if you can. There are going to be different angles and slowmos which are easier to gif. The original play of the goal will usually be too fast or unnoticable especially if it’s a tip. I tend to find that the last replay they show is the best. I will use the original celly though, because that’s usually the best one.

stylistic choices are all up to you and id on’t look down on anyone who’s gifs do not fit what i’ve said here. do you. your thing is your thing and i’m not going to judge you for the way you gif things. I just think this may be a good groundwork for people or maybe give other people the confidence or the know how if they’ve thought about giffing before but don’t think they can. 

Flash Point

I messed up again kiddo.
Hell, I really messed up.
There’s no going back this time,
Not even for an old snake like me.
I’ve met my match,
You and I both know it,
But you came anyway.
Why did you have to make this so much harder?
Why couldn’t you leave it be?
Now I have to face the reality,
That you’ll hate me forever.
I’ve never been the best father.
But god the disappointment I saw in your eyes;
Kid, you must be medusa,
Because I froze.
Right on the spot.
Time stood still.
I mean it’s not like I was going anywhere anyway,
But I couldn’t speak.
There are not enough words on this planet to excuse what I did,
You let me in again,
You believed in me.
And I stomped on that trust with disregard.
I saw you break,
Right before my eyes.
Every second that passed,
Made my hearts shatter that little bit more.
But I couldn’t show it,
I encased my heart in steel,
And told you words I could never take back.
I burned this last bridge to the point of no return.
You can never know this,
But I did it all for you,
To protect you,
The one good thing left in my life.
Have a good life without me,
Forget about me.
And hold on tight to the family you’ve built for yourself.
Goodbye, Jughead.
And good luck,
It’s a scary world out there.
