good representation of my life

Props to the RWBY team for darkening Blake’s skin. It’s slight enough that it’s not like “Whoa! Sudden race change!” But it’s nice, considering how many fans headcanon her with darker skin.

As the show continues, it’s nice to see more skin variation all throughout, since, y’know, not everyone is the same exact shade of #ffeee0.

Especially with Blake being one of the four main girls. I don’t think many series would make that decision, and I’m proud of the crwby.

Queer Representation Gothic

  • You’re listening to playlists tagged ‘queer’ on 8tracks, they all consist of some combination of the same 20 songs. As you listen to more and more, they get shorter and shorter, eventually they are just repeating loops of same love and I kissed a girl, occasionally broken up by a mashup of the two songs. You turn off the playlists and turn on a progressive radio station, the same songs play again, and again when you go to the local co-op, everyone nods at you because they must be your favorite songs
  • You get excited because the gay and lesbian section on netflix has 6 new movies, you watch them all, half of the protagonists destroy their relationships, the other half die, the same thing happens the next year, and the next, the netflix logo makes you sad.  
  • A country radio station plays a song that might be a little bit gay, the station is boycotted, everyone who works there is boycotted, you are boycotted because you too might be a little bit gay. 
  • A character in a new tv show has had relationships with men and women, half the fans think the character is gay, half think they are straight. Straight and gay are the only valid options, no other word is thought of, nothing is labeled, not even the soup cans

ALL AT ONCE - a music fueled student film

hey guys! So I know that I have been talking here and there about posting the kickstarter link for the student film I am acting in; and here it is! Here’s a bit of an explanation of what All At Once is all about from the kickstarter page:

DIRECTOR’S NOTE: My name is Jack Campise and I am a senior high school student from Columbus, Ohio. I’ve always had a passion for telling stories and have been making short films and videos for years now. Recently, I’ve been writing what I know; taking experiences from my own life to craft a larger story. That’s what I’m trying to do with this project. I want to reflect on my time spent in high school, good and bad, to shape an honest representation of that pivotal time in my life.

All At Once is a project that will act as my senior capstone project. It’s a high school short film made by high schoolers.

Synopsis: A coming-of-age story that follows Patrick and his friends as they find consolation through the music they listen to and create. The friends start a garage band (Mom Jeans), driven to be remembered for something while Patrick comes to terms with his past and learns to move on.

Now the reason we are holding this kickstarter is because we need your help to raise funds for filming the second half of the film; our director, Jack, funded everything out of pocket for the first half of the film (travel costs, equipment rental, gas money, food, etc.) and we were hoping with some help from you that we can raise the funds to help pay for the next step!

This project has been an incredible and fun experience for me; and if you could help us out by donating a little cash, we’d be SO grateful! (plus there’s so many cool rewards for donating!!!!) if you can’t donate money, just reblogging this post to get the word out is so helpful!!

thank you for your time!! <3
