group of weirdos

OOC: I am at 100 followers and this is my 500′th post. I guess this should be some sort of milestone.

I just wanted to say you’re all wonderful people. I was immediately welcomed into this weird little community and I’ve had a lot of fun. People have made fanart, fanmixes, and other small contributions to this blog that have legitimately made me happy in what would otherwise be a very dull and somewhat stressful chapter in my life.

Seeing you all interact with this blog during the day is nice. I legitimately look forward to coming home from work and getting to responses.

As I’ve said in the past, I’m not a huge “fandom” guy. I’m not the most social nor am I the most sociable, but I haven’t regretted joining this one.

You’ve all been a wonderful group of weirdos, here’s to more adventures.

Mccree and Hanzo are D.va’s dads.

Reaper is Widowmaker’s dad and Soldier 76 is Tracer’s dad. They are not happy that they daughters are possibly dating. They are also both dad to Pharah.

Lucio is precious son too who needs to be protected at all costs.

Zenyatta is definitely Bastion’s dad.

Mercy everyone’s mom while Reinhardt is everyone dad aka the ultimate dad.

Team aunts squad includes Mei, Zarya and Symmetra.

Genji is a cool uncle and Winston is nice big brother (especially to Tracer).

Junkers are the weird distant relatives that love hanging around.

Torbjörn is the crazy grandpa that no one invites over but he still shows up randomly.

Random Prompts

As requested by anon, these are prompts based off of stories I have written.

  • I love you but you’re an idiot, so I may not come and save you
  • I know your brother/sister/other sibling just died, but you have to understand that you will die if we don’t get away fast enough
  • In the moment I didn’t know what you were feeling, but now that you’re crying at my feet I know I shouldn’t have told your secret
  • Let’s run away together! We never, never have to come back here
  • My friend group consists of misfits and weirdos, and I still feel like an outsider.
  • I know that you wanted to just feel something but you can’t. Because of me.
  • Until I joined a band, I didn’t know how powerful teenage girls are.
  • I’m an animal crashing a family reunion!! (Best not to ask about that one)

Note: all of the prompts are from different stories

On Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Nick and Norah is one of my favorite gay movies and it doesn’t have a gay protagonist. I know that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but the movie is essentially a straight dude whose friends are exclusively gay and they have a band together.

Though they are secondary characters to a straight romance they are still incredibly interesting and dynamic. The plotline follows this group of weirdos as they run around New York City in search of an indie band, while the three gay friends try to set Nick up with Norah (a girl who isn’t a total ass) and the lot of them are also in search of Norah’s crazy, intoxicated friend who is lost somewhere in the city.

It’s honestly one of my favorite movies all around. I consider it like a comfort movie, a fallback when I can’t find something new to check out. It’s so funny and cute and charming and I really liked the soundtrack. So if you haven’t seen it maybe give it a chance!

~the queer comunity~ doesn’t exist, because it’s an incoherent term that

1) assumes everyone has personally reclaimed the q slur and is ok being described that way OR 

2) if it’s to only describe the people who have reclaimed the slur, it excludes a large portion of lgbt people

there’s the LGBT movement. not a “queer community”. get this “group of deviant weirdos” sounding term out of my face

Je viens de réaliser que dans les teen movies, la troupe des belles meufs un peu pestes perd toujours face au petit groupe de weirdos.

Depuis le début, je joue dans la bonne équipe.

carrie_rachel ; I wanted to post what is one of the nerdiest, most all-out dork pictures I’ve taken in a long while. This is me in Atlanta, GA last night meeting one of my music idols, Cindy Wilson from The B-52’s. The look on my face is one of pure glee and excitement. In high school, a friend of mine made me a mix tape of the first three B-52’s albums: s/t, Wild Planet and Whammy. I immediately became obsessed. These were a group of outsiders and weirdos from Athens, GA making angular music that threaded surf, new wave and pop stylings with Dada-esque lyrics. It was a confluence of the strange and the sexual, the silly and serpentine. I had missed their first incarnation (featuring the late great Ricky Wilson, a unique and underrated guitarist who continues to influence me to this day), but I saw the band on their Cosmic Thing tour. That night, at age 15, I pressed to the front of the stage, sang at the top of my lungs, and went home with bruises on my ribs and a heart filled-up and transformed, like it was pumping a whole new kind of blood into my veins. This is what it is to be a fan: curious, open, desiring for connection, to feel like art has chosen you, claimed you as its witness. To this day I still am a fan, of many, many things. Fandom keeps me hopeful and engaged, a participant. And I was a fan last night in front of Cindy, rattling off a whole bunch of incoherent, half-strung together thoughts about her songs, her voice, her band, her brother. And it felt, well, awesome. I guess I’m sharing this because I’m on tour right now and I meet fans every night. Sweet and eager faces, sometimes desperate, sometimes nervous. Please know I’m grateful for all of it. And I understand it. I’m one of you. ❤️ #cindywilson #b52s #fandom #sleaterkinney

  • Paruru: OK SHUT THE FUCK UP I GET IT.

Can we maybe stop calling folks “sjws” for something as simple as wanting to have the correct pronouns used for them, or not wanting you to use words that contribute to abuse of their group?

Those darn weirdo sjws, always wanting me to give them respect.

When I saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I physically ached to be part of that group of cheerfully degenerate weirdos… When I see the people entering my shows, I think, ‘Fuck, I kind of did it’

Some news! After 6 amazing years, last Friday was my last day at Tumblr.

It has been an incredible adventure. I’m proud of the work we’ve done, what’s been set into motion, and I’m excited to see what comes next.

As fun as it is to work on something you use and love, more than anything, I’ll miss hanging out with my favorite people everyday. That is a group of kind, smart people whom I’d be lucky to work with again. Truly a group of weirdos I never thought would all be in the same room. There are mornings I would wake up sore from laughing so hard the day before. There’s not an easy way to justify walking away from that, but I know we’ll remain close.

I can’t say how grateful I am to david, the Creative team, and so many others along the way for allowing me to experiment, learn, and grow at Tumblr. I think that when you’re at a place like Tumblr, you’re allowed to work creatively in a way that changes the way you think, and I hope I can take that with me wherever I go.

There’s more to come — I’m excited for what’s next. It will have many of the same challenges Tumblr had when I started. A tiny team with giant ideas. In the meantime I’ve taken a month off to see my family and do a bit of traveling with Brittany.

Alright, bye!
