“You are. That’s why all the girls love you.”

“Ah, well, none of them are as special as my home girl right here.”

“See, now you’re just being silly,” she shook her head.

“Nah, I’m not. You’re number one. Me and you? We’re down for life.”

do you have any other podcasts you like? i listened to wolf 359 recently and loved it :)

Anon, you have wonderful timing, because I was actually thinking of making a podcast rec list earlier today! So behold as I ramble about podcasts for a while.

Podcasts I Love:

Wolf 359: You already know this one, but for those who don’t, let me just say that this is the best. A humor sci-fi piece that morphs into a very engaging adventure and character study, it has some great plotting and very likeable characters. I know a lot of people for whom it doesn’t seem to click until the end of the first season, when a lot of plot arcs start to culminated, but I loved it from pretty much the beginning. Cannot pitch this one hard enough.

Limetown: It’s only got three episodes out so far, but this is a damn fine horror podcast with some great production. Very grounded in the real world with a lot of specificity, it builds atmosphere exceptionally well. And with an announced season of seven episodes, it’s nice to get into something knowing that the writers know where they are going. And having a female main character is regrettably rare amongst the podcasts that I’ve listened to, so I feel the need to give props here where they are due.

Podcasts I Like

Wooden Overcoats: This one is more of a guilty pleasure than anything, and I don’t know if I would be as invested if I wasn’t a fan of the lead actor/producer from his work in Zombies, Run! It’s a zany British comedy about the undertaker on a small island in the English channel, and it is very sitcommy, for better and worse. But goddamn if it doesn’t hit a sweet spot for me.

Welcome to Night Vale: You know what Night Vale is if you’ve been on Tumblr for more than a day. While I’ve considerably cooled on it over the last year, I still enjoy the episodes and usually listen to them when they come out.

EOS 10: Another sci-fi show taking place on a space station like Wolf 359, but very much in a Star Trek-style universe, with lots of whacky aliens walking around. The main characters work in the medical bay of a space station, and in a lot of ways it’s a 70’s bawdy hospital comedy. My major criticism is that I don’t care for how the show treats its female characters, and the second season moved away from my favorite plotline, a surprisingly good and grounded examination of addiction that managed to not be tonally opposed to the series’ usual humor. Worth a listen, but I prefer Season 1 to what comes later.

Elysium Project: This sci-fi piece probably is the shakiest so far, with only three episodes that feel very young and unpolished in their writing style. But it’s an engaging adventure story that I am intrigued to see where it goes. And with only three episodes out so far, it’s not a huge time commitment.

Podcasts I’ve Tried, But Did Not Get Into

(If anyone has a strong pitch to make me reconsider these ones, I’m willing to hear it.)

Thrilling Adventure Hour: Didn’t care for the style of humor or the stilted pacing.

Our Fair City: I listened to the first two seasons before fading out in the third. It became a case of spinning too many plates with various plotlines, but I would still give it a hand-waving sort of recommendation.

Kakos Industries: Listened to a handful of episodes and came out a little lukewarm. There just didn’t seem to be enough variety in the Evil Corporation shtick, so I didn’t feel I had anything to care about.

SAYER: A play on the “evil AI” trope, this podcast just felt like it was all made up of things I’ve seen before. Maybe it diverges from its HAL 9000 legacy later, who knows.

King Falls AM: I listened to the first couple episodes, but felt like I already had enough “quirky backwoods radio announcers in a town full of paranormal mystery” tropes in my life between Night Vale and watching Gravity Falls. This one I might return to later, though, once the Gravity Falls season ends.

Podcasts I Have Been Recommended, But Have Not Tried Yet

(I can’t personally vouch for these, but the names have been passed to me.)

  • The Black Tapes
  • The Message
  • Hadron Gospel Hour
  • Big Finish
  • Métis in Space

So hopefully somewhere on these lists, you find something you’ll enjoy listening to. Best of luck, anon! And if you stumble onto any new winners, be sure to pass them my way.

anonymous asked:

I graduated from high school in 2013 and I went to Uni for like, 3 months? And I hated it and it's just not for me but I'm going back next year because I cannot think of any other way to make like, meaningful progress or whatever. I want to be a writer but I'm getting my degree in secondary education :/ How did you find the courage to just not go back? And what did you do instead?

So, like, i see the worlld REALLY longterm. Properly. Like, I find it geniuinely difficult to get up in the morning because i look at the sky, and I see the sun, and instead of just thinking about the weather that day, I think about the fact that there are 7 billion people on earth and that i mean nothing. and that every single second is counting down, and it’s a deadline to my death. I can’t brushd my teeth without staring at the water and feelinf guilty that I have clean running water, when people are dying from diseases cause by unclea n water. Not in a super pathetic way, but in a logical way. It just makes sense. i use that to be optimistic instead of pessimistic. it took a while to bend my thoughts that way, but i’m basically good.
50% of my time I spend thinking ‘hey what’s the fuckin point,’ and the other 50% i spend thinkng “hey, if there’s no point, i should do what makes me happy.”`

This, ove rthe years, this has lead to me hating the idea of many things. including Uni. BECAUSE. i HAVe only ever heard of these reasons to go:

1) The only way to get into the professional area i like, is UNi - totally respect that! you go! you do iT! so long as that’s the profession you want!
- the only reason that makes sense to me

2) My parents/guardians/people in my life, have pressured me/would like me/implied it’s best for me - to go
3) “I’m not sure what i wanna do yet. may as well kill time, by gettina  degree which will furrther me in life??”
- personally? NO. to me, it’s not ‘killing time,’ it’s wasting money. you’re not sure what yoiu wanna do? GREAT! GO FIND OUT! Travel! see the world! Y’know there’s water in natural lakes, in the world, so clear that it makes people look like they’re floating?? you know there are these clear glass rooms under the stars that you can stay in, and see the northern lights from bed:?? Man. the earth is SO GREAT!! WE ARE SO LUCKY! WE LIVE IN FREE COUNTRIES WHERE WE CAN JUST WALK OUTSIDE AT ANY TIME OF DAY, AND GO DO SOMETHING! ANYTHING! THAT’S FUCKING AWESOME! SO DON’T SPEND MONEY! You’re not sure?? fine! go explore! meet people! try making things! experiment!
if you wanna go to uni after that, it’s still an option! all the universities in all the world don’t just shut down as soona s you turn 22! and if you still dont wanna? good job you didn’t waste money! It’s SO EXPENSIVE! Here in wales? £3000 a year AT LEAST. England? £9000 a year AT LEAST! the U.S., SO MUCH MORE. Go be happy. Hey, maybe i’ll decide I DO need a degree ina  few years. There’s no shame in that. People reach different stages of life, and ideas at different times. whoopdiedoo!
4) I’m too scared to try and get a job now. I’ll take Uni as a break, and then see.
- the job market’s gonna be AS hard, if not harder when you finish Uni. If you’re scared, okay. that sucks. But sometimes fear is good. In fact, a LOT of the time fear is good. I’m TERRIFIED. But with jobs, come money. I’ll live. I’m so liucky, because i was born in a country where i have freedom, and the opportunity to travel. I have enough security that I know i’m not gonna starve, and if i fail, my parents can probably afford to help me not die for a bit until i get back on my feet. I’m SO lucky, Because i live somewhere that allows me the peace to see that LIFE IS SO EXCITING. I CAN LITERALLY JUST KEEP WORKING FOR A BIT, THEN SAVE AND GO TO AUSTRALIA. OR JAPAN. OR ICELAND. I AM PRIVILEGED ENOUGH THAT I COULD DO THAT. 
I remember sitting in maths classrooms when i was at school, and staring out at the window, wondering what it would be like, to look at that sky, and have the potential to just GO. now i HAVE that: 
I get driven with a mate to the other side of town to get a deal on pizza.
i get the pizza, and pay with the money from my job.
i go back to my house where my friends have made a stupidly awesome doctor who parody and watch it with them while we all laugh and chat, and talk longingly about the future. and i love them.
Why on earth would i throw that away for a piece of paper??

Man. Life can be FUCKING SAD. I’ve been through that. there’s like, war, and poverty, and injustice. there’s racism, and sexism, and humans can be awful. there’s heartbreak, and grief, and pain. I’ve killed living things. i’ve known a 15 year old to die. and he was fucking great. and fucking kind. and it can suck.

BUT life can be SO SO GOOD.

there’s laughter, and things can tickle, and you can get those happy excited goosebumps over a TV show, and friends can surprise you with stuff you didn’t even know you wanted, and kissing happens. and kissing’s GREAT.

And nowadays, i don’t even NEED to be drunk on a wednesday night, with a chip buttie in my hand and a packet of crisps to see that.

the idea of uni is so behind me. i am so free. uni isn’t. 

THAT’S how. 


It had started on Eren’s birthday.

The raven had given his husband a new smart phone as a gift, given that the brunette’s phone had practically been prehistoric. Really, he had had it before they even started dating seven years ago.

So he thought he would be a nice guy and make his beloved a nice gift, after all, what could go wrong, right?


So many things.
