he was such a perfectionist


“There’s this story, actually, that Quincy told me years ago. And what said is that Michael had the ability to come in, he could lay down the lead vocal of a track. And then he could sit there, listen, just put the time in and figure out where all the harmonies should go. And then do that, not leave until he had the harmonies right.”~Nelson George



I probably have done more sketches for him compared to the other characters (omg and these sketches are so old!). I originally wanted to give him more of a ‘serpent’ look with lots of curves and Jafar+Al Hirschfeld hand. Soon I noticed it was hard to define his design next to Raoul, who had lots of round lines. So in order to emphasize the ‘sinister’ side of my version of the Phantom, I gave him more straight lines with skinny, clean cut body shape. Everything will fit perfectly on him (which made me change his ascot design too later) since he is a perfectionist, who can’t stand the fact that half of his face is ‘imperfect’.

performance team: does a perfect performance, wins all the awards, literally nothing to criticize

hoshi: i feel deeply regretful because the spotlight cast a shadow on my face and i was unable to make eye contact with every single fan because of it. i should have anticipated the lighting and redone the choreography accordingly. i hope that you were able to enjoy the performance despite our flaws and i promise we will work even harder next time to show you an even better seventeen!


"Why did it take so long to make Bad? The answer is that Quincy and I decided that this album should be as close to perfect as humanly possible. A perfectionist has to take his time; he shapes and he molds and he sculpts that thing until it's perfect. He can't let it go before he's satisfied; he can't.

If it's not right, you throw it away and do it over. You work that thing till it's just right. When it's as perfect as you can make it, you put it out there. Really, you've got to get it to where it's just right; that's the secret. That's the difference between a number thirty record and a number one record that stays number one for weeks. It's got to be good. If it is, it stays up there and the whole world wonders when it's going to come down." -Michael Jackson

Not quite a client from hell but a story of a boss from hell that involved a freelancer.

The old boss at an agency I worked was working on some copy for a website and had sent it to a freelance copywriter to make changes and polish it up. My old boss was a perfectionist and believed that he could do anybody’s job in the agency better than they could.

The freelancer sent him a revised Word Document and discussed over a (loud) speakerphone. The conversation between the freelancer and my old boss went like this (in earshot of the entire office):

Boss: I just read the copy you sent through.

Freelancer: Oh yeah? What feedback do you have?

Boss: It is quite possibly the worst written piece of crap I have ever read. Nothing makes any sense and it feels like it has been written by a 3 year old.

Freelancer: But…

Boss: I don’t know how you can call yourself a ‘copywriter’ if you can’t even spell. Most of these words don’t mean anything relevant to this project and I feel that I have wasted my time hiring you for a job you quite clearly can’t do! Once again I have to do these things myself.

A slight pause.

Freelancer: The document I sent has not been changed from the original you sent me. I only added a couple of questions in red at the end that needed answering before I could proceed.

After a long pause my old boss rather sheepishly made his excuses and ended the call. We didn’t see him again for the rest of the day

“The way the scene was edited made it seem like Finn heard the screams from the Hosnian system before the planets blew up. But until we get solid proof that he’s force sensitive I think we have to assume that’s an error in the audio editing.”

Oh okay. So doing a frame-by-frame analysis of Kyle Ron’s microexpressions in order to find the tiniest hint of remorse while he’s engaging in torture, mass murder, and patricide? Perfectly reasonable.

But Finn hearing the screams from the Hosnian System in a direct parallel to Obi-Wan hearing the screams from Alderaan…? 

Well we can’t read too much into THAT. The sound editor might have just made a boo-boo at a pivotal moment in a 200 million dollar production. And that very obvious mistake somehow slipped JJ’s attention, even though he’s such a perfectionist that he was still tweaking TFA three weeks prior to release.

Or maybe people could pull their heads out of their asses and examine why they find that kind of colossal fuckup (which would imply that you couldn’t trust a damn thing in TFA) more believable than a black guy being force sensitive.

Very briefly I just want to say something. When Yoongi drops his mixtape, please don’t compare it to Namjoon’s, and don’t mention Hoseok’s future mixtape in its midst either. Yoongi has been working on this for YEARS and he’s even talked on Twitter about how much he’s struggled with getting his mixtape to where he wants it so please, give him the support he deserves. He’s been doing trial and error for the longest time to give us AND himself something to be proud of and I’m sure he nor his other members want to be overshadowed by this. He’s mentioned how much of a perfectionist he is, and creating this mixtape has been a definite struggle for him. It’s his chance to show us his raw character ;

So let’s support him ❤️


A first year at Karasuno HS & the regular setter of the Karasuno High Volleyball Club. He originally came off as a typical overbearing perfectionist, caring about nothing else but winning & completely disregarding the opinions & well-being of his teammates. His habit of complaining about their performance & barking orders at them eventually led the other players in the club to nickname him “King of the Court.” | To the baby crow who is always angry but everyone loves nevertheless.. Kageyama, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  ٩(^ᴗ^)۶


people keep asking me for more Spring Bonnie so HERE! ! !

They also keep asking if he’s much different than Springtrap and yes! SB was a very nervous, smart aleck scaredy cat (oops I guess that hasn’t changed much), but he also was very excitable, sweet and naive at one point. He loved his job!! He hated being worn as a suit though, it felt gross and awful. He’s also a perfectionist and somewhat of a germaphobe, he hated being dirty!! yuck yuck

sadly, getting accidentally tangled up with Purple Guy changed him a lot. Basically becoming the gross, annoying, old curmudgeon we all know today was his way of coping with everything he’s been put through. Having a festering corpse in you 24/7 probably didn’t help his mental stability either

This is how I know Louis Tomlinson did not tweet this:

Louis Tomlinson, is a known perfectionist. How many times has he tweeted something misspelled, grammatically incorrect, or missing an emoji, and has then deleted it and replaced it with the right one?
