great account

Why you should watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine

- Of the seven main characters, only one is a Christian white man

- This particular man has dozens of hobbies which include local food critic, sewing, yoga, and other traditionally non-masculine interests

- The main character is Jewish

- One of the main characters is a middle aged gay man who isn’t a TV stereotype, who is married and lovingly committed, bringing up his husband in casual conversation throughout the show without it being the only important thing about his personality

- Every female character has a distinct personality, goals and fears and aspirations, and all have multiple episodes focusing solely on exploring their characters and development

- GINA MOTHERFUCKING LINETTI

- Terry Crews as a big buff doting father

- Humor that never relies on offensive jokes or stereotypes, that is genuinely funny with great comedic timing

- Multiple accounts of close friendships between men and women without any implications that there will be more

- The few relationships that do exist between the main cast are developed naturally over time

Thank you for reading, go forth and enjoy this fantastic show!

not to be dramatic…..but bangtan saved 2016

I’m honestly still in awe at how underrated hyuk is like..he’s so well rounded. He’s a great dancer, vocalist, actor, and apparently now he writes music as well?? He’s smart (was the top of his class) and translates english for the members with ease, and he plays piano really well. He’s really dedicated to what he does and I don’t think many people know this but he’s SUPER SWEET to starlights (letting them squish his nose omg, being really friendly to an i-starlight when she was backstage at one of their tours, doing aegyo when the hyungs aren’t there lol) idk man more people should appreciate hyuk y’all are missing out

“there is no better friend than a sister”

Finally began arting again ;_; after weeks of nothing but sketches, I was despairing a little to ever do anything again.
I’m starting a… well it’s basically a ‘thank you’ to the wonderful artists and writers that inspired me to get back to art.

First is @teechew​, (with the wonderful Kelutra and wow that was fun to do) whom I actually knew ever since her deviantart account. She inspired me with the small sketches and drawing of Kelutra (notably the one in Nagrand? It was such a beautiful scene), and to develop my WoW charas in the first place.
Fast forward a few years (and me giving up the idea of playing WoW regularly), and during that awful artblock I’ve been going through, I went searching for inspiration in the tags… and I stumbled upon teechew and the beginning of Starry Eyes. I am still floored by the writing and art both, it’s sooo great ;_;!!

So thank you teechew for inspiring me again, for giving me the creative juice and for creating Kelutra who’s such a great character!

#6: THE K-STRASS SAGA

This was originally a series of equally great videos across many accounts, but somebody stitched them all together in one convenient place. This man completely made up a persona (K-Strass, a Yo Yo master) and had his manager submit him for local news stories on his “incredible yo-yo stunt show” all over the place. Proving that none of these channels do any kind of homework or background research at all, he made it on to every station. He had nothing to show and bombed every single appearance. People started to post the clips on YouTube across different cities and territories, and it wasn’t long before people realized the truth- this guy played everybody. In the years since, this actor’s been on The Office and other shows in the comedy community, but I think it’s gonna be tough to top the power of K-Strass.

Miesha Tate

Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve always been a fan of Miesha Tate. Shes one of the original pioneers of Women’s MMA and is by all accounts a great person. While he star was always shadowed by Ronda Rousey eventual she finally managed to get UFC gold from none other than the woman who beat Ronda.  

Miesha tates martial arts background came from wrestling and used it mixed with a very aggressive brawling style to win most of her matches. He final record was 18-7. She should be appreciated for all she’s done for helping start up Womens MMA.

I know this is an unpopular opinion

But I have two thoughts about the “banwave”

For background I work for a large social site and although I am not a moderator (I am on the art staff) there I have several friends who are or were at some point (mostly back in the site’s heyday).

The first thought is that several times we were accused of something like “banwaves” on that site–there was this impression that suddenly a great many more accounts were being handled than average, all at once. This was almost never true, and when it was, it was during times of peak activity when more people were playing so we had more reports to handle–during events, for example. Things like NotN. The actual percentage never really fluctuated much, aside from sometimes brief spikes when we hired new mods to plow through a backlog or something.

The second thought is that every single time, without fail, that I ever saw anyone loudly complaining about their ban–not just sending in an appeal, but going out in public loudly lamenting how unfair and incorrect their ban was–it turned out to be that the ban was in fact deserved; sometimes they even have a history of warnings and several other banned accounts (as the site I’m talking about allows multi-accounting). Sometimes the people sending in an appeal and maybe making one or two posts on a new account to tell their friends where they’d gone off to were in fact wrongly banned and the ban was overturned and we never heard anything about it again, but literally without fail every time there was a “public outcry” over an unfair banning it turned out to be deserved. This is true on several sites–a Runescape drama thread about exactly this recently went /r/bestof on Reddit, lol–and I just have to raise an eyebrow. And often the mods aren’t allowed to refute this publicly because we have privacy rules in place to protect our users where we’re not allowed to air their history unless they start posting specifics first.

I am not going to sit here and say that no one has been wrongfully banned because I frankly have no idea and to be honest any moderator who’s been around for a while, especially during a high-traffic time, has accidentally handed out a wrongful ban and had to reverse it. I was once banned on /r/ladyboners on Reddit because someone misread the comment above mine as having been posted by me! It was overturned.

I haven’t seen any posts by anyone banned so I don’t know what’s going on here; I don’t know who has been banned or why or usernames or any specifics. I only follow a couple of FR blogs directly to avoid flooding my dash as this is my non-FR account as well; the rest I visit the tag for and occasionally click over to that blog to read it. So I’m not trying to actively discredit anything that’s happening. I’d just say that before you leap to the conclusion that a “banwave” is happening that you consider that maybe the bans aren’t escalating: maybe it just seems that way because there are more active users and more botters afoot in the wake of NotN.

I should also add that last time there was a “banwave” scare I messaged the mods about the fact that three people in my household played FR actively (I’ve since moved so now it’s two in that house and me by my lonesome) and they sent me a very nice personalized message about it and I was never banned even though my step-dad and I traded his coli team back and forth on the regular. And then, a week or so later, it turned out there hadn’t been a “banwave” at all, it’s just that it so happened that two of the routine bans had been people who were especially active on Tumblr and therefore had a platform to publicly discuss their bans, totally by coincidence.

So, IDK. All I’m saying is remain skeptical and do not panic or witch hunt. I do wish that pet site staff in general, on FR and elsewhere, were more transparent and communicated better about moderation tactics, but I have also worked for a social gaming site and I get why sometimes that just isn’t the case, so I’m just gonna sit tight and wait for more info before assuming that some mods are running around hammer-happy and panicking.
