how to deal with this perfection

how can you have chapter 1 without section 3. i get that its an extension of the argument but holy shit why would you do that. to ignore it “for brevity” and assume that it still exists through implication really isnt enough, especially when it gets to section 4. perhaps nothing is more clear in the whole chapter than fighting through section 3 and dealing with all of marx’s ramblings to get to section 4 and have him basically say that the complexities hes just led you through are obscured and flattened through the fetishism of commodities. it makes perfect sense theoretically as well as methodologically, and to just cut that out of the book means that by the time he would get to the fetishism argument (much faster, and probably before youre really ready), you might not understand why its so important. you might not understand the purpose of talking about the value-form at all. and to get rid of his footnotes…. thats perhaps the worst crime of all

I usually don’t like to do this, giving attention to haters who absolutely don’t deserve it, but I have to get this off my chest. I see really rude people trying to bring down my friends who don’t deserve this kind of treatment at all. I see them hiding behind a computer, writing disgusting, mean comments on ANON
First of all, why would you spread hate and bad vibes when you could very well be spreading love and just good vibes? 
No one is perfect, NO ONE. We all make mistakes, we all have different things we have to deal with and I’m pretty sure we don’t come on Tumblr to see hateful comments about us, about our work, in which by the way we DO PUT IN A LOT OF EFFORT AND TIME.
What I learned is that no matter how good or kind you are, there will still be people who find it annoying. Even kindness can be annoying to some. If you are confident then some say that you’re full of yourself, if you are sociable they say you’re seeking for attention. This is society.

I think it’s really simple. If you don’t like something on my or my friends’ blogs then just block us, don’t visit our blogs, IGNORE US. I’m pretty sure most of these haters never ever talked to us to know what kind of people we truly are, what is OUR story, what kind of things we are dealing with, so they have no right to judge us in any way. You are frustrated? There are better ways to deal with it than coming on the internet and spreading hate. This just proves your immaturity and pure meanness.
Going on anon and sending a hateful comment is time consuming for you. Why don’t you just keep that nasty comment you’re going to send to someone to yourself? And just move on with your day. And not ruining others with your frustration. 
Do you think it’s cool to be mean to others? Nope it’s not. Does the hateful comments say something bad about us or you? I’m pretty sure the answer is you. It says all about you: You have no life so you’d rather bring other people down so you could be more content with your pitiful life. Am I right? YES I AM.

But how about you all come off of anon and write the same hateful messages? But this time we would know who wrote them. Would you dare doing that? Would you take responsibility for your choice of words? Because words can hurt just as much as actions do (or even more). 

I don’t want to see my friends or anyone else being targeted by these lifeless people who try to bring them down with hateful comments. 

Criticism is alright. But only if it’s constructive. Do you have suggestions on how to improve some stuff? Sure go ahead, let us know. BUT CAREFUL IN WHAT MANNER. What your choice of words is, what your “tone” is.

We are our own worst critics. We can be hard on ourselves most of the time. And we all know that we could get hundreds or thousands of compliments and still one or two hateful comments would make us feel bad. This is human nature. But please be considerate and think twice before writing something that you know would hurt that person.


Ask yourself these questions:

“Do I make that person feel bad if I comment this?”

“Do I feel happier if I make that mean comment?”

“Would I be okay with it if others would make that same comment on me?”

Here’s a golden rule for y’all struggling with spreading hate:

“Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you”

p.s: did I make grammar mistakes? probably. Does it bother you? maybe yes, maybe not. If yes, was that the purpose of my post? NO. So if you still don’t see the point of what I’m saying then read it as many times as you need to understand what the problem with people like you is.

Okk so one of the many things that gets me from last nights episode is how alex says she is there to help maggie heal, and it's not im here to heal you.. like maggie needs to do the healing herself but alex is there supporting. I can't believe how healthy their relationship is 😭😭

Ikr?! 😭 they invented healthy relationships.

You’re right. It’s important that Alex said I’m here to HELP YOU heal because Maggie has to deal with her problems and patterns by herself. She just needs Alex to get healthy again, to trust people. It’s so important for their relationship!
I think Alex is the first person who is 110% there for Maggie and accepts every part of her and her past. She’s her perfect match. Alex is the right person to do that. To make Maggie complete again.

Sad Headcanon; Kiro's wedding day has finally arrived. Guests fill the chairs and he stands at the altar waiting for his beautiful bride. However, time lapses and still the aisle remains vacant. Kiro goes to the readying room. As the door swings open, he can see the blood. It covers everything, including his bride and her white dress. There is no movement. No pulse. No breathing. She had been killed.

I laughed a little, ngl. Not that this isn’t heartbreaking, but like, pretty much said to myself ‘Yeah that would happen to him’. It’s been a curse of his forever and a half that everything will go right up to about the point of being perfect before it crashes faster then me at 5am.

Gosh, could you imagine how much more fucked up he’d be after that? Like… never mind the revenge epic I’d have to write about him dealing with it enough to function, investigating who did it, tracking down said person and literally going Law Abiding Citizen on their ass. 

Then the mess after that? That’d fuckin’ suck man. He got widowed once, I don’t think he could take going through it again. That might actually be the death of his character right there, at the very least how people know him. 

I am so tired of this idea that being a fan of something = worshipping it blindly and never criticizing any aspect of it, like sorry mate, literally nothing is worthy of that because nothing is perfect and flawless, and if that’s how you want to consume media, that’s your deal, but quit pulling this “how can you say that about a series you claim to love” bullshit

Jungkook’s Perfect Imperfections

So recently my precious baby bun has been getting shit about his skin because he has acne. Which EVERYONE has dealt with at least once in their life, or still is dealing with it. It’s not a big deal, it’s just skin, it doesn’t change what an amazing person Jungkook is. And honestly I love his acne, it just makes him normal and human. Every imperfection he has, in my eyes, just makes him even more perfect so that’s why I’m making this appreciation post about his perfect imperfections which I adore with all my heart 

His facial scar 

i love it so much it just makes him even more handsome asdfghjkl 

look how cute it looks, i just wanna kiss it 

my heart hurts because of how adorable he is

His knee scars

two angels istg

I love Jungkook with every fiber of my being and all I wanna do is protect him. If anyone hates on him I will fite them. He is not disgusting, he is not overrated, he is none of the things I‘ve seen these assholes call him. He is the most sweetest, talented, caring human being alive and I’m just so happy to be around at the same time as him to watch him grow and shine. ❤️

the older i get the creepier it seems to me when men make a big deal of how young a woman is. when i was young it seemed normal for men to mention she’s nineteen with that certain type of eyebrow move, that knowing look passed between them. it seemed normal because i felt mature; i was mature in all accounts - twenty-five year olds who called me attractive were just stating the obvious. i remember the summer of my eighteenth year being drunk by a river - and having a man tell me i was the perfect age.

it is frightening to me that twenty-five is when women stop being considered attractive, that thirty is “old”. it is frightening. a girl at nineteen is still a teenager. i think often of the men in movies who have kissed women literally half their age and i wonder - how can that be enjoyable? you have her entire lifetime, doubled. she could be your daughter. 

the most telling i think is the way they act when they find out my face - so close to that of me at eighteen - is a lie. that i’m older than they think. they recoil as if i struck them. they find another fish to hunt.

maybe it’s me and how sensitive i am about everything. but i see eighteen year olds and at twenty-three i am already wondering how i didn’t notice that older men are predatory. how i didn’t notice that there’s a time stamp on my beauty. how i didn’t notice how incredibly creepy the fascination with eighteen is; how odd it is that the fixation on skinny lends itself to looking that same underdeveloped age, innocent and fresh. how did i not see this.

Dark Horse Comics Lady Killer mini series (compiled into a perfect bound graphic novel edition) is written by Jamie S. Rich and Joelle Jones, and masterfully drawn by Ms. Jones herself. 

The gritty (and bloody!) story deals with a Mad Men era suburban Seattle housewife who’s actually a CIA assassin. 

Artist Joelle Jones explains how she playfully put together a series of vintage ad mockups while doing research for the project, shown above (with additional hand lettering by Crank). The mini-series is a dark delight, just as these playfully grim ads are. This isn’t a comics blog, of course. And Rich and Jones’ mini series won’t be for everyone. But the art is still terrific, and those ads are fun. The illustration style and typography is strictly now, but the coloring and general ‘feel’ are pure retro. And we’ll admit it: We love retro, and get a real kick out of seeing contemporary tweaks and twists of vintage 20th century design, illustration and photographic tropes. Check out more of Jones work at joellejones.com.

A husband and wife each published an article. It became a case study in online harassment.

Online harassment is a universal problem, but it definitely falls harder on some people than others. In a recent Guardian study of abusive comments on its own articles, eight of its top 10 most abused writers were women, and two were men of color.

Almost everyone experiences some online abuse, but not everyone experiences the same level or intensity of it. For some, online harassment is a nuisance that’s easily shrugged off. For others, it’s not so easy.

That’s why it’s important to step into someone else’s shoes every now and then, like Washington Post pop music critic Chris Richards did. When Richards and his wife each had articles published on the same page of the Post, what happened was almost a perfect A/B test proving how disproportionate harassment works.

It’s easy for some to be skeptical that online harassment is that big a deal, or that it’s worse for people who aren’t white men. It’s easy to say something like, “It’s not because you’re a woman, it’s because they disagree with you,” or, “Whatever, it’s the internet, people are going to be jerks.”

And yes, people disagree and are jerks. But they also tend to be much bigger, nastier jerks to women, people of color, and folks in other marginalized groups.

Women and people of color can shrug off harassment too, of course, and often do. But they also tend to face more, and more vicious, attacks, including attacks that are specifically targeted at their gender or their race. All of that can wear down even those with the thickest skin, and its long-term harms can sneak up on you over time.

This is especially true of journalists and commentators with public platforms who write about controversial topics. And as Amanda Taub pointed out for Vox, this means online harassment can have real harms on journalism if it makes women and people of color reluctant to cover controversial issues.

Emily: “So, Winston. Lena was telling me she used to not be able take off her chronal accelerator, in the old days.”

Winston: “Ah-ha-ha, yes. How embarrassing; those older models were so shoddy. You wouldn’t believe how long it took me to perfect a localized temporal stabilization field over a wide enough area that would allow-”

Emily: *grabs his arm* “THANK YOU.”

I suffer from depression and anxiety, and having a show and having a character that portrays a young woman who is dealing with that and the consequences of it — how it affects her friendships and her relationships with her mom and her sister — it’s beautiful to see that. Someone who’s seemingly so perfect on the outside is very much broken on the inside and trying to piece themselves back together. That’s what Betty is doing in Season 1. She puts a lot of pressure on herself, and her mom puts a lot of pressure on her to be perfect, and it’s overwhelming for Betty. She definitely hits some breaking points. She’s just a young girl trying to navigate today’s world, and that’s hard. It’s hard for all of us.

it’s not a big deal but i can’t get her out of my head, and how you kissed her, and how you never said sorry, and how she’s beautiful and perfect and rock climbs in her free time and how you don’t even think I’ve got something to be upset about. i’m just saying that no matter how hard you kiss me i know it’s not love. i’m just saying that we fuck with the lights off. i’m just saying that i keep waiting for magic and it never comes. i don’t know why i lie to myself. i’m never happy when the morning hits. it’s just that you look at me and i lose it.

me: actually it’s a common misconception batman is the real person and bruce wayne the mask. without bruce wayne losing his parents and dealing a big amount of pain and years-long trauma, batman could have never possibly existed. the two bleed into each other, help balance their personalities organically and codependently, and work together in perfect harmony to produce this very complex character

batman, backing away from a bagel bite: no alfred i can’t EAT while i’m wearing the cowl i’m a whole other PERSON i’m not bruce wayne, bruce wayne is my M A S K alfred, how many times wil[muffled noises of baged bite being shoved into his face]

OKAY I AM WATCHING A VIDEO ABOUT FMA AND I AM SCREAMING

So you know how the main villains are all adapted of the 7 deadly sins right

And ironically it happens that all of them will follow the description of the punishments in Dante’s Inferno for each sins. (also friendly reminder Dante was the name of the villain in the first anime, I just can’t)

So, quoting the video (which is in French here) and spoiling to death :

Those who committed the sin of Pride are condemned to be constantly crushed under the weight of a rock. In FMA, Pride will end up crushed under rocks.

Those who committed the sin of Envy are condemned to have their eyes being sewed. In FMA, Envy will have his eyes being burned out multiple times.

Those who committed the sin of Wrath are condemned to have their limbs being pulled away. In FMA, Wrath lost both of his arms against Scar.

Those who committed the sin of Sloth are condemned to walk for ever without being able to stop. In FMA, Sloth spent all his life digging the tunnel.

Those who committed the sin of Greed are condemned to share the same body with people who would give everything away for others, the opposite of Greed. In FMA, Greed will then share his body with Ling, his total opposite.

Those who committed the sin of Gluttony are condemned to be bitten and eaten by Cerberus. In FMA, Gluttony will be eaten up by Pride. 

Those who committed the sin of Lust are condemned to be exposed to burning winds and to go through a wall of flame to clean themselves away from their sin. In FMA, Lust is being burnt to death by Roy

As for Father, in Alchemy it was specified that if one managed to create a Homunculus, this one would never be able to leave a little bottle, which is the case of Father. Moreover, the first man to claim having created a Homunculus was named Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombastus Von Hohenheim.  

Moreover, the one who ordered to create Father was the king of Xerxes who wanted to access Immortality. But his plan will turn out against him and Father will provoke his death. In our reality, Xerces is dead killed by one of his captain which plan was to take over his empire to divide it between his Seven Sons. The parallelism between Father and the Homunculus is then obvious, but the story doesn’t stop there, as the story tells that the Seven Sons had been killed as well by the Son of the King, who had for Mother the Queen Amestris


Can you hear me scream on the other side of your screen on how clever this manga is

There were unexpected moments. These lightning strikes made of sudden calmness and tenderness, of electricity and love, when she would realize again and again just how much the rogue had stolen her heart (and stayed).
