how to make it in america cancelled

dating advice: the “captain america” rule

Context: I grew up in a family of nerds, and superheroes were always a really big part of my childhood. Captain America was a favorite, and he kind of became my family’s standard for good behavior and just generally being a Nice Person. (If one of the kids started a fight they’d get hit with, “What would Captain America think of how you’re acting?”, stuff like that.)

So when I got to high school and started dating, my mom told me something that sounds funny but in retrospect actually turned out to be really good advice:

“Date someone who treats you the way Captain America would. Never settle for less.” 

And this has actually helped me so much in my dating life, through high school and into my adult years, because even if it’s a little silly, it’s been really helpful to have that standard in the back of my mind when I’m first going into a relationship. 

Would Captain America ignore my calls? Would Captain America forget my birthday? Would Captain America get mad at me for cancelling a date because a family emergency came up? If the answer is no, then I know that the person I’m currently dating does not meet my standards, and that I need to break things off before they get too serious.

And your standard absolutely does not have to be Captain America, specifically. It can be any person, male or female, real or fictional, who is known for being respectful and considerate. It can even be an imaginary “soulmate” that you make up yourself. The point is to have a specific idea of how you expect to be treated by your romantic partners, and to refuse to compromise or settle for less. (Just make sure you’re holding yourself to the same standards – you can’t expect to date superheroes if you’re going to treat your partners the way a supervillain would.) This is a really good way to keep yourself from falling into bad relationships where you aren’t treated with the respect and care you deserve.

TL;DR: You deserve to date people who are respectful and considerate of you. You deserve a Captain America. Don’t settle for less. 

I love love love it when people learn things from pop culture/shows/books/even fanfiction etc. I learned how to jump start a car from Phineas and Ferb. (Positive to positive, negative to ground.) I’ve seen two posts tonight of people being embarrassed about learning things from unconventional places. Fuck that. I’m so glad you know weird obscure facts about bananas because of that one Captain America fic you read. It makes me so fucking happy that you learned what the word “petrichor” means from watching Doctor Who. This goes along with cancelling cringe culture: I’m cancelling being embarrassed about learning things, no matter the source.

A/N: So, finally, I’m able to post this thing. I’m so sorry @leah5684 that it took me so long to write this, but I really hope you will forgive me AND I also hope you will like this ^^

Request:

Hello👋🏽. Could you do a Loki imagine. Where the reader is just as bad as he is. Like he meets her and she talks about wanting to be queen and ruling Midgard making everyone kneel before her. And he thinks she’s beautiful and they fall in love. And together go to conquer Midgard as King and queen. ❤️❤️❤️

The setting of this is the first Avengers movie where Loki caused… some ‘trouble’ ;)

Special thanks to @explicitfandoms! Honey, you and your help about Loki’s skills were totally useful!

Warnings: some swearing, but nothing bad

Never happened something interesting in the world. Always the same old shit. Wars, riots, and other bad stuff, just because there was too much democracy on this planet.

Love how the “Anti-SJW” brigade are so quick to blame “diversity” for Marvel’s sales slump and to ignore oh say… Canceling Fantastic Four, repeatedly sabotaging the X-Men Franchise, giving the Inhumans a Roman Reigns-esc push, having a digital distribution strategy that doesn’t make a lick of sense, having three Crossover events in less than a year, building an entire crossover to a Captain America heel turn no one but Nick Spencer wanted, giving the evil Captain America storyline 16+ issues of prologue with tie-ins to other crossovers, and charging a $1 more per issue than DC does for new comics.

And on a more personal note a decade ago one of my favorite Marvel comics was New X-Men Academy X a book that introduced a whole new roster of character to be the next generation of the franchise.  Then came a double dose of crossovers in the fom of House of M and Decimation.  The creative team changed and what we got was a story called “Childhood’s End” where the focus of the book was solely on X-23 and everyone who wasn’t X-23 was suddenly expendable. Characters died left and right and I quit in disgust.

Years later I became fan of Avengers Academy another book dedicated to introducing legacy characters.  It was smart, well drawn, and had tons of guest stars.  Better yet forgotten characters from books I loved like Runaways and Sentinel were guest starring.  I loved it but it got canceled and was replaced with Avengers Arena a cynical Hunger Games cash-in. I tried to give Arena a fair shake but as characters I liked from Academy and Sentiel were slaughtered I once again quit in disgust.

So after being burned twice why should I give Marvel the benefit of the doubt that they want to do legacy characters right now?

Fellow fangirls and fanboys,

Aren’t you tired

Tired of having to wait until some rich businessmen decide if they are going to renew your favourite tv shows? Tired of reading of actors who suddenly leave a show for no apparent reason other than to make more money?
Aren’t you tired of being disrespected?

Because if I am not wrong, and correct me if I am, WE are the only reason the entire tv show industry exits. Without us they wouldn’t be able to get people with money to produce tv shows. 

So how come we get no saying? How come we have to anxiously wait to see if people who have probably never seen their own shows will renew them?

Some could say that we decide by supporting and watching the shows. But let’s be real, there are so many airing at the same time, one would have to use a Time-Turner to watch them all. 

We all know the best tv series are produced and aired in the United States of America. Which is why the rest of world has basically no saying in what happens, even though we are a pretty big group of people. Tipically enough, tv series are renewed or cancelled at the end of season, which for most is in May. By that time most of the world still hasn’t had the chance to legally watch and support their shows.
So how can they make a choice without all the data?


As you may or may not know, yesterday Netflix officialy cancelled Sense8, an amazing tv show about culture, diversity and love. A a lot of people were watching the show, but NOT EVERYONE CAN BINGE-WATCH IT IN A WEEK-END as much as we would all love to do. So why cancel it after only a month from the airing of the second season?

Well, dear tv series’ friends I think it’s time to raise our voices adn make some noise. Maybe we wil be ignored as always, maybe nobody will read this post, maybe nobody will agree with me. 

But maybe, for once we will be heard.

It’s always great to wake up to an alert from your school telling you that classes have been cancelled and you may have to evacuate do to wildfires.

Don’t worry, I’m not actually drinking. I wouldn’t want to make myself more flammable. Also, I’m only 20 (America’s a silly country). Honestly, I’m debating whether I should just go. Traffic is going to be a fucking bitch. So many areas around us have already been ordered to evacuate AND it’s rush hour.

On the bright side, I don’t have to take a midterm today!

anonymous asked:

By Tuesday afternoon, The Daily Stormer a neo nazi website posted an article titled, "Trump Defends Charlottesville Nazis Against Jew Media Lies, Condemns Antifa Terrorists." His condemnation shouldn't have to appease the left, but at the very least it shouldn't have been vague enough that the extreme right is able to twist it to their advantage.

Uh yeah, that’s exactly why everyone hates both the far right and left, they both want to believe Trump is a secret Nazi sympathizer and both have proven that they will twist literally anything he says to fit that delusion.

If you want to talk about dumb headlines, how about: “HE STILL BLAMES BOTH SIDES,” CNN cries in enormous font on its front page. In a headline, The New York Times blared that Trump “again blames ‘both sides.” So did the Chicago Tribune. So did NBC News. So did U.S. News and World Report while calling Trump insane. So did NPR. So did CBS News. So did the Washington Post. So did the Wall Street Journal. So did Time. So did MSNBC. So did USA Today. NBC News later wondered: “Has Trump Lost His Moral Authority for Good?” CNN continued with the massive headlines, calling Trump’s press conference “a meltdown for the ages,” and declaring: “Trump is who we feared he was” and “Donald Trump’s presidency is headed to a very dark place.” As I write this, the top headline on CNN’s website is: “This is a moral crisis.“

The president has become “completely unhinged,” Jimmy Kimmel told his viewers on Tuesday night. He had just canceled all their scheduled programming to focus on the president “finally showing the world the racist he is.” This is a day after Jimmy Fallon did basically the same thing and asked America how to explain this to his daughters. The front page of Wednesday’s NY Post read “Trump back at it: Hey some white nationalists are ‘very fine people.’” Fox News’ Kat Timpf was on the verge of tears as she exclaimed, “I’m wondering if it was real life.“

All these reactions make me wonder the same thing, is this real life? Kimmel played a series of clips from Trump’s speech and they all seemed perfectly reasonable, banal even. He condemned white nationalists and Nazis and he said the left was also being violent. After the clips, Kimmel pretended the President had just said something racist. It was baffling. If it were just an average person saying what Trump said, we’d all say ‘duh.’ There’s nothing controversial about what he said, only the fact that it comes from a guy people are desperate to prove is a racist.

It does not matter what Trump says, it does not matter how harshly he condemns and disavows, these idiots on both sides will always manipulate it for their own gain. The only difference is the far right has no power and very little influence but they don’t need it because the left does their job for them. Liberals control mainstream media, they control what is taught to our kids and they tell our drone celebrities what to say. The difference is they can get away with influencing half the world into believing Trump is a Nazi. I have so many of these messages in my inbox but I feel like I’m just repeating myself over and over.

How Julian Fellowes really writes Downton Abbey
  • Fellowes: Alright, lets put down a first draft for season 6!
  • Neame: Uhm, Julian...
  • Fellowes: Call me Baron.
  • Neame: Right. Right, uhm... it's just, there's a group of young, dynamic looking people banging on the front door and..
  • Fellowes: Oh, that would be my co-writers. Don't let them in!
  • Neame: But some of them looked pretty angry and weren't they hired to...
  • Fellowes: Alright, boring characters first!
  • Neame: *sigh* - Edith?
  • Fellowes: Yes, that one. So Marigold dies from-
  • Neame: I will not stand for this!
  • Fellowes: But that's all Edith is about! People she loves dying or leaving her! Alright, I'll pair her up with that dreary guy from the Christmas special and then I'll kill him off. Next!
  • Neame: So Robert and Cora...
  • Fellowers: Right, so Robert dies because the ulcer isn't just an ulcer and in a state of confusion he changes his will and Isis inherits the whole estate. The family ends up in destitute because when Isis dies she hasn't left a will and everything is confiscated by the evil labor party. All servants lose their jobs, everyone is unhappy, show ends and I finally get to move on to 'The Gilded Age' and write something I actually enjoy. Perfect!
  • Neame: Ooooo-kay, that's really lovely. Now, back to Robert and Cora, shall we?
  • Fellowes: If we must. *pouts* Alright, Isis dies, Robert has to undergo surgery and almost dies, Cora is a good supportive wife and Robert regains his will to live when the head surgeon flirts with Cora and he jumps out of the hospital bed and beats him up.
  • Neame: I guess at least that's better than...
  • Fellowes: Mary falls in love with Henry, they get engaged and he dies in a car accident.
  • Neame: I thiiink we already had that one. Don't you think that would be a bit-
  • Fellowes: Can't have them just be happy, can I? You can't have character developement through happiness!
  • Neame: If you say so... But at least kill him off in a different way.
  • Fellowes: Yes yes. Now Tom, he leaves for America with Sybbie and comes back to visit in episode 3 or 4 and spouts all those ideas about freedom and everyone having the same rights and worth and how there should be no class devide *snorts* and that makes Robert's ulcer worse and leads to him needing surgery. Tom is ordered to stay away from the house.
  • Neame: Whatever.
  • Fellowes: Which brings us to Violet. She dies or leaves for Russia to become the courtesan of the Prince.
  • Neame: I think I'm going to be...
  • Fellowes: Speaking of wrinkly sex, the Carson and Hughes wedding is cancelled.
  • Neame: WHAT?! Are you insane? The fans will not accept this! They'll boycott your next show! Oh my god what-
  • Fellowes: *dreamy* Elsie finds out that Carson has been married all those years. His wife is in an asylum for the insane and refuses to sign the divorce papers. Cue eternal woe.
  • Neame: Oh for heaven's sake, why can't you just let them be happy?!
  • Fellowes: Who would want to see that?
  • Neame: EVERYONE!!! *hyperventilates*
  • Fellowes: Man, you forget yourself!
  • Neame: I... *pants* ... I can't...
  • Fellowes: Alright, Molesey proposes to Baxter, she says yes, they get married and get their own little cottage.
  • Neame: What? Just like that?
  • Fellowes: Yes, why not? They deserve a bit of happiness, don't they?
  • Neame: o_O *stares blankly into space*
  • Fellowes: Now on to two of my favourite vict- ehm, characters. Anna and Bates.
  • Neame: Oh god...
  • Fellowes: Anna discoveres she is pregnant, Bates has to go into exile on the Isle of Man, Anna gets raped by the gardener-
  • Neame: *chokes*
  • Fellowes: - she stabs and kills him, is sentenced to death but they have to wait until the child is born which gives Bates the time to convince the judge to hang him instead because how could he live with himself if Anna were to be executed because obviously Bates's feelings are what matters here. Then it turns out Carson's insane wife broke out of the asylum and stabbed the gardener because she can't stand the sight of green aprons but it's too late and Bates is hanged and...
  • Neame: None of this makes any sense! *flails*
  • Fellowes: I don't see the problem. Now to my special little friend. Thomas... *rubs hands*
  • Neame: Dare I ask?
  • Fellowes: So Thomas and that doe-eyed lad Andy fall in love and he's a changed man and glows with happiness.
  • Neame: Now we are talking!
  • Fellowes: Then Thomas gets raped by a house guest-
  • Neame: What the?! What's with the rape thing? We already had a badly handled rape plot!
  • Fellowes: Yes, but we never had a MAN raped so- wait, what do you mean badly handled?
  • Neame: Nevermind, I.. look, no raping Thomas, okay?
  • Fellowes: Then the Andy lad?
  • Neame: NO ONE GETS RAPED!!!
  • Fellowes: Then at least some mild sexual harassment?
  • Neame: NO ONE- oh, well, actually that could be a really effective storyline. One could save the other and that could serve as a catalyst to admit their feelings to each other and-
  • Fellowes: You mean the audience would enjoy seeing that and it would be interesting psychologically and a nice challenge for the actors?
  • Neame: Oh yes!
  • Fellowes: We can't have that. I'll go for the love triangle instead. Thomas loves Andy, Andy loves Daisy, Daisy falls in love with Thomas again. That way they will all be unhappy. I'm a genius! What are you doing?
  • Neame: Oh. Nothing. *types away furiously to set up a Go Fund Me-campaign to buy the rights to Downton Abbey*
  • Fellowes: And Mrs Patmore expodes.
Why Save Agent Carter?

For many, Marvel has become the brand associated with people of all ages aspiring to do good. That’s what superheroes are supposed to do, right? Agent Carter is possibly the finest example of stories made to inspire people to be their best and make positive changes in the world.

Most obviously, and at the forefront of the campaign to get the show picked up again, there is Peggy Carter, a female lead with guts and the skills to back it up. She’s a capable woman in a time when women were expected to be docile and demure. The low expectations people have of women both frustrate Peggy and enable her to operate behind the scenes while her male counterparts are left guessing as to how the job got done. Beyond her remarkable brains and brawn, she has become a style icon and role model for people around the world while still being a character with deep flaws and dimension. Without a doubt, without Peggy, there would be no Agent Carter.

That being said, Peggy stands a chance to reappear elsewhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as she has so many times. This won’t make those stories her story, but it means [SPOILERS] her death in Captain America: Civil War [/SPOILERS] and the cancellation of her show don’t have to be the last we hear from our intrepid hero. The cancellation does, however, most likely herald the end of the stories for the majority of the incredible cast of characters that make up the rest of Agent Carter.

From the beginning, Peggy’s partner in crime (and in law-upholding) was the unlikely hero of Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark’s butler. With domestic flair and a humorous knack for getting caught in the most awkward situations, Jarvis proves to be the perfect companion for Peggy’s adventures. Jarvis, like all the rest of the core characters of the show, has faced extreme adversity in his life, having been branded a traitor to rescue Ana, the love of his life and his wife, from the Nazis, and is often underestimated for how clever and resilient he is. His many skills make him an invaluable asset for Peggy and Howard.

Howard Stark has been a part of Peggy’s story from before Captain America: The First Avenger and it appears they remain tied to one another until Howard’s death. Her story would not be complete without him in it. Eccentric, brilliant, and always entertaining, Stark is a joy when he appears on the show. Like Peggy, without Agent Carter, Captain America: Civil War could prove to be the last we see of Tony Stark’s father, leaving us without the opportunity for Howard or the audience to see him meet Maria and form S.H.I.E.L.D. with Peggy.

Though we’ve seen the steps begin that would likely lead to the founding of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the replacement of the SSR, there is still so much more story to be told. The SSR still has a lot of clout and only just formed an office in California. Without Agent Carter, the stories of SSR agents of the show, Thompson, Sousa, Rose, Samberly, etc. may never be finished.

Daniel Sousa, the also often-underestimated new chief of the SSR’s California office, might be Peggy’s future husband, but without the show, we may never know. Sousa, one of the only leading male characters I can think of that’s crippled in some way but still a capable fighter and field agent, would be one of the greatest losses should Agent Carter not return. Though he is time and again seen as a lesser by his peers in season one for his war-maimed leg, he is not defined by his cane. No one even mentions the fact that at least his actor, Enver Gjokaj, is Albanian-American, playing a character in a time of extreme racial prejudices. (Though with the last name of Sousa, one would assume he is of Portuguese descent.) He’s appointed to chief for his incredible mind and his persistence as an agent. Without Agent Carter, Sousa’s remarkable story could be over and television would lose an admirable character.

The plethora of characters aside, the show itself has inspired so many people. The outcry from the fans is not only about the ending of a narrative, but the loss of a story which features so many complex female characters, good and evil, each with their own agency. Without Agent Carter, I struggle to think of a show with so many leading female characters, especially ones that are true role models.

I attend many conventions and have been fortunate to be a part of the cosplay community for many years. The number of people I see cosplaying Peggy Carter is staggering. Many even add that cosplaying Peggy makes them feel more confident and powerful. Peggy has time and again helped people to find value within themselves, must as she does on the show.

I do take a bit of amusement away from the proximity of the cancellation to the release of Captain America: Civil War. [SPOILERS] I believe the film unknowingly incited fans to react the way they have with Sharon’s eulogy at Peggy’s funeral. Even with what could be her last message in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Peggy encourages people to “plant yourself like a tree” when facing something worth fighting for. The fans in kind have said to Marvel and ABC, “no, you move.”[/SPOILERS]

Without Agent Carter’s vision of equality in gender and ability, entertainment loses a step in the fight to represent the diverse world we live in. Every episode, the show uses it’s beautiful 1940’s setting to challenge societal norms that are still relevant today. Audiences lose incredibly intelligent and capable role models for people of all ages to aspire to.

anonymous asked:

I wish you would write a fic where... Darcy's an omega but the roles with alphas and omegas are reversed, like omega's are the top of the food chain so to speak and before Darcy met Jane, she crossed paths with asset/bucky who imprinted on her before hydra snatched him back up and it just never faded. Is that too specific?

unf okay well now I’m just picturing the alpha asset in the muzzle and on a choke chain because everyone KNOWS alphas are wild and can’t goddamn control themselves at the best of times, much less be trusted when there’s an omega around. really, goddamn rutters, frankly it’s a miracle ANY of them behave better than the asset does. 

good alphas don’t bite, the Secretary says, and the asset tries VERY hard not to. 

but it’s very hard not to.

a reminder that these are NOT necessarily sequential

“So,” Tony says, clapping his hands together, “where’s Cap? We haven’t been introduced yet.”

Pepper hesitates, just a fraction of a second. “Actually, he requested that you not meet. It was his one stipulation for coming tonight.”

He’s not even the same guy Tony’s dad had such a hard-on for, he’s a second-rate knock off, but it still feels like a knife to the chest.

“Oh,” Tony says and his voice sounds far away to his own ears.

“He seemed to think it would be better for him not to appear to have a personal relationship with you,” Pepper says and she sounds sorry.

“Sure,” Tony says.

It sounds reasonable, but all he can hear is Captain America doesn’t want to meet you and it still hurts.

4. Mikey’s On Top

Everything’s coming up Mikey! Whoops, misplaced the comma. It’s more like, Everything’s coming up, Mikey! VOMIT VOMIT VOMIT.

I seriously couldn’t help but retch at this “Mikey’s the best” storyline they threw at us this week. Look, they even show the guy WALKING ON WATER:

Bleh. Wait, we all don’t like Mikey, right? I mean, I know a bunch of you superficial bitches would fuck him knowing full well that you’d be ashamed of yourself after, but that’s still different from liking him.

Word of warning, to would-be Mikey-fuckers: Mikey has crabs. Just look at that big one on his ear. (Such a fashionista!)

Mikey is a 26-year-old who never progressed past puberty. He’s into modeling for the pussy. He’d rather top a model than be a top model. It doesn’t take much to see him getting kicked out of a runway show for sexual harassment behind the scenes.

During Tyra’s makeup advertisement music video, Mikey got showered with praise for being “good in motion” (probably because he’s constantly on the run from the law) but this week his good fortune reached unbearable heights. First he gets handed $2,500 for having what might be the worst business idea I’ve ever seen. Then he gets to cuddle with Mamé despite being sleazy about it. Then the judges shit themselves with the joy over his facial expression that we’ve supposedly never seen before.

BITCH PLEASE.

A quick retrospect of Mikey’s previous photos will show that he looks straight into the camera with his mouth slightly agape every damn time. Admittedly, his cheekbones are killer, but as far as serving up something new late in the competition, that’s bullshit. This is the same old face.

Tyra admits that earlier in the competition she thought Mikey would be gone around the midway point (you and me both, sister!) but she’s really proud of how far he’s come. Oh he’s come all right. Come so many times that there’s no salvaging his duvet.

When all is said and done, Tyra hands Mikey best photo of the week, telling him that “the cream is rising to the top.” Tyra, don’t say the word “cream” to Mikey unless you want him to get him a boner.

This Mikey redemption arc better be over by next week. I swear if Mikey wins this show, I will make them wish they cancelled this shit ages ago!

5 Funniest Moments of ANTM Cycle 22 Ep. 13

Person of Interest Initiative 2.0

Mission Statement: To Support our cast & crew!

Goal: To help Person of Interest get relocated (this is tentative, pending an official statement)

Once there is an official statement from Greg Plageman & Jonah Nolan, we will take to twitter to support their goal. The ONLY hash tag we will use will be the #PersonofInterest tag. This is because it is the show’s official tag and is tracked. If showrunners decide to seek another home for Person of Interest, we will address only Warner Bros as it is their property which will be the most likely place for a relocation… Even above Netflix.

Also remember etiquette when tweeting. Please refrain from offensive language that would be counterproductive to our cause. And please, only use ONE tag in a post. Using more than one will cause the official tag to be canceled out.

Trending:

So you all don’t get frustrated when the time comes, let me give you a brief explanation of trending. It doesn’t happen by total number of tweets, but by an accelerated amount of tweets in a short time.

How you can help:

- BOOST! Reblog! Reblog! Reblog! I want this post and any updates to it to spread like wild fire!

- Retweet a lot! Even if you’re slow in making your own tweets, retweet the #PersonofInterest tag.

- Lastly, we need a “Power hour” for America and Europe. If anyone more saavy with time zones than I would like to coordinate that, please let me or shortysociopath know.


Remember, this is about support! Be passionate, make some noise, but stay organized. Show them what it looks like when a fandom enters God Mode, but stick to the guidelines in this post.

Long rant up ahead

Okay if I see one more person bitching and whining about how Sony cancelled The Interview, I will personally smash a chainsaw to the back of someone’s skull.

Did you people really think: making a comedy film about killing a political figure-head (who mind you IS STILL ALIVE.) And making it about North Fucking Korea of all places would seriously go with consequences? Did Sony really think this?

Not only is this movie in bad taste it just goes to show how immature America is as a whole. As if the world didn’t have enough reasons to hate this country already well, they sure as hell do now. I myself in NO WAY WHAT SO EVER condone the actions of Kim Jong-Un and despise him as much as the rest of the world does but, this movie is just sad and childish.

If they truly wanted to make a movie about North Korea and Kim Jong-Un they should have went the Zero Dark Thirty route and did it in a dignified and serious manner, not make it a fucking comedy.

But, aside from the movie it’s self being terrible what really pisses me off is people’s reactions to Sony making the wise move of not showing it. The whole “NORTH KOREA HAS SILENCED US!” and “HACKERS NOW CONTROL THE MOVIE INDUSTRY APPARENTLY”. All of you ignorant idiots need to Shut.The.Fuck.Up.

I believe they made a wise decision. When a country as Bat-Shit insane and Nuke insane as North Korea threaten to blow up some shit you better believe they will carry it out.

“BUT THE U.S IS MUCH STRONGER THAN NORTH KOREA AND THEY DON’T POSE AS BIG A THREAT!”

Even if the U.S is stronger they could still pose a HUGE threat. They were referencing 9/11 for Christs sake and people are actually bitching about this?

Fuck Sony. Fuck who ever approved this horrible idea for a movie and fuck all the ignorant pricks that actually want to see this movie and will defend it to the death. You all sicken me for thinking a comedy movie about killing an insane leader who kills thousands without remorse, would be remotely entertaining to watch.

anonymous asked:

both the girls & their team piss me off bc they do nothing. no interviews, & they go out 24/7 but 'they're working' on the new album they could have worked during the tour but noooooo sorry I'm furious we're doing everything for them

I’m so fucking done with everyone saying the girls don’t do anything and party all the time. They had a WELL DESERVED week off after their trip to japan and a week off now before they started non stop work for the new album. They’ve been writing and recording in the studio EVERY SINGLE DAY. THEY WERE EVEN IN THE STUDIO ON A FUCKING BANK HOLIDAY. Just because they dont document every single second of their day doesn’t mean they aren’t working. How do you get all these Little Mix songs that you have on your ipod? Or all these incredible music videos? It’s not like they sit around and wait for someone else to write their songs for them. They do it themselves and fuck anyone who thinks they don’t work hard. Little Mix are the hardest working people I know. They sing they dance they write they produce and for who? FOR YOU. And you can’t appreciate it just because you’re still salty that they POSTPONED a tour so YOU can have another album to listen and cry to. I know the whole tour cancellation couldve been handled better but it’s time y’all get the fuck over it. You have no idea what goes on behind the scenes. You have no idea what really happened and why they cancelled the tour so suddenly. You think they didn’t want to do it? That LITTLE MIX THE MOST AMBITIOUS GROUP OUT THERE would not want to tour AMERICA AKA ONE OF THE BIGGEST AND TOUGHEST MUSIC MARKETS??? Fuck all of you who think they don’t work hard or they don’t deserve a break every now and then or that they don’t care about their US fans. Y’all are so fucking ungrateful it makes me sad. You don’t know their schedules. You don’t know how an album is made. It takes a lot of hard work. But it also means that some days Little Mix aren’t needed in the studio. Like songs need a lot of work before they’re “finished” and that’s the producers job. They have to stem it and basically edit the whole thing arrange the vocals add the beats add the layers add the background vocals and idek man. All I know is that a song isn’t produced magically. Neither is an album. It takes time and effort and it NEEDS time and effort. So just chill with the whole they don’t work enough or party all the time shit ok unless you’re with them in the studio til 1am or at videoshoots dancing the salute routine til 3am or at photoshoots from 6 in the morning don’t fucking tell me they don’t work hard.

And don’t even for one second think that you’re “doing everything for them”. Voting and tweeting hashtags and all that stuff is OUR JOB. ITS THE FANS JOB TO PROMOTE AND SPREAD THE WORD AND BUY THEIR MUSIC. Take a look at other fandoms. They work SO hard. They tweet 24/7 trend 24/7 and we can’t even QUOTE a lousy tweet because HEY THE GIRLS GOT BLESSED WITH A SHITTY FUCKING MANAGEMENT SO LETS GIVE THEM THE FULL TREATMENT AND ADD A SIDE OF SHITTY FUCKING FANBASE AS WELL. THAT’LL MAKE THEM REALLY FUCKING HAPPY.

I don’t think people understand just how desperate LM/1D’s management has become to do what they did. LM has been trying to break the US for awhile now and their second album underperformed even worse than the first. Their third album will probably sell even less and this album is make or break for them.

I know what everybody’s thinking. The zerrie shit has reached an all time high. Photographers at Perrie’s birthday? Seriously? The fact that most of the guests were a part of the LM team? Why were none of Perrie’s friends there? (Does she even have any friends? but thats a different story)

This is just getting out of hand. Even people who aren’t anti-shippers get suspicious from looking at that mess of a party. Why were the photographers taking pics of the birthday girl kissing her ‘boyfriend.’ You’d think that would be a private moment wouldn’t you? And why the fuck was it in the papers the next day?

It’s an insult to the intelligence of the LM and 1D fandoms, and its an insult to people who read the paper and see this without knowing all the facts. What possessed their management team to do something so desperate? 

Here’s the answer. 

The tour was supposed to be a way to solidify their presence in North America, but it was cancelled (likely because of low ticket sales. They were performing in 3-5k venues which they couldn’t fill instead of 1-3k venues which would have been more doable).

Canceling the tour means a lot more than you would think. Not only did they piss of about 20,000 fans (keep in mind that the Salute album only sold about 40k in its first week here in the US, meaning half of their album sales came from fans coming to see them on tour) but they also pissed off the parents of these kids. In the UK, their fans are slightly older, but here they are younger because their fans are really just the gullible, 9-12 year old portion of 1D fans who think Zerrie is real. 

Its going to be hard for those kids to convince their parents to buy them more tickets if LM ever come back to the US to tour (which I doubt they will) guaranteeing they will never build up to having an arena sized tour here, AND they are losing more fans, AND they have lost lots of money, meaning Columbia might drop them if they keep it up. 

The probability that album 3 will flop even harder than Salute was always high, but now it’s probably certain. LM claimed to be taking America by storm, but their tour cancelation and sales prove otherwise. I won’t even bring up their excuse about needing to work on the album because we all know thats bullshit. 

Fifth Harmony and Neon Jungle both have a big fan base and those groups haven’t even released albums yet. When they do, Neon Jungle will probably steal their UK fans and 5H will definitely steal their angry, upset US fans. 

So instead of getting angry at Zayn or their management, remember that they are very desperate. Canceling the tour could be the end of LM’s career, in the US anyway. And those girls were desperate to break the US. The HQ, fake zerrie pictures were planted to stir up interest and make all those fans they lost pay attention again. We all know it won’t work and they’ll flop even harder than before, but it’s important to understand why they did it. 

Mekakucity Actors DVD Stream TOMORROW on the 23rd and 24th @ 1pm AEST

HELLO INTERNET AND FANDOM I AM BACK.

Honestly speaking, I’m surprised there are fans who wants to watch this. Like, and including my reblogs, there are almost 100 notes on the streaming post I made before I left. Ooooh boy, first time streaming… I hope this works!

Okay! Here’s the plan!

I am not making one stream per day, I’ll try to make two streams per day. Because yeah, majority of the fandom is on the other side of the world, aka here in Australia not convenient for those in America (mostly). However! I am not sure if I can stay for the 2nd stream of the day because of dinner and such, so I will just leave the DVD running and that’s it (btw, how do you turn off the mic? I don’t really want people hearing me making comments).

ANYWHO! Here’s the schedule.

  • Saturday @ 1pm and @ 7pm AEST - Episode 1 to 6
  • Sunday @ 1pm and @ 7pm AEST - Episode 7 -12

Sounds good right?

BUT! There are rules to make this enjoyable!

RULES

  1. Be nice: everyone wants to enjoy something. If you’re making bad comments and other’s uncomfortable, I will cancel the stream at once because it just proves how bad the fandom can be when some of us wants to see the good part of it.
  2. No hate comments on MCA: no one wants to hear anymore of these stupid comments on how bad MCA is due to story quality and animation. It’s been 2 years, and the stream is for other’s to enjoy.
  3. No ship wars: we don’t want this. Civil comments are fine though, but don’t say how ship X is better than ship Y because of Reason A, B, C, and D.
  4. More rules may be added on the day of the stream

Link will be up an hour early at least before the stream.

See ya tomorrow!
