i am not like other people

thedeathoftrust replied to your post “Me, writing a post, any post, it’s not a specific post anymore, just…”

Honestly I think you should make an announcement that you’ll start name dropping because I think these people are doing it bc they know you’re nice and you won’t do anything, they see it as you just take it, ya know? I don’t think it reflects poorly on you to just, share their message because this is the internet and they released those words into the ether, the universe can decide their consequences

Oh I never said I was nice. I said I try to be good. There’s a profound difference between those two things. 

Those who have been with me long enough, know that I take a hard line stance on not naming and shaming people in my inbox for several reasons, one being that I have been doxxed before, and have had people attempt to doxx me recently, either because of something I have said that they do not agree with or because they just plain don’t like me. And it’s a terrifying experience I do not wish to ever inflict on anyone, intentionally or otherwise. 

And I think some seem to mistakenly think that because I don’t publicly broadcast the person’s name, that I am simply rolling over and taking it, when the truth is, I’m just not comfortable with having other people do my dirty work for me.

Sometimes people need someone to talk to, they just don’t realize it till someone tries. There’s a few of my current followers who started out sending me hate mail only to end up still here four years later and still talking to me every now and then to let me know how they are getting on. It’s worth it for that alone.

Others are just trolling and get blocked.

A rare few are just trying to provoke me into posting their details publicly cause they want to prove there’s no such thing as good people and I’m lying when I say I care about others. I like to call these ones The Edgelords, and they are another reason for why I strive so very hard not to crack because fuck playing into that kind of bleak cynicism. I do not grant them that power over me. 

Persistent individuals who have made multiple accounts and used VPNs to get around me blocking them, have on occasion found themselves at the frayed ends of my patience. And it’s amazing, how quickly the facade collapses when you address someone by name. More often than not you’re left talking to a very scared and very lonely individual who just doesn’t know how to fix their life. Rarely do they persist after this gentle reminder that hey, I am a human, you are a human, we should be humane to one another.

For those who still don’t relent, well, they’ve found themselves subject to the real world coming back to bite them on the ass, either through work, their school or their parents. I’ve emailed colleges to ask if {Insert Name Here’s} behavior is a reflection of their core beliefs and values. I’ve talked to parents who just couldn’t believe what their child was doing online and were mortified.

I had one kid who I was certain was going to shoot up his school after I found his reddit account and I called the local police.

So what some people might see as me protecting people who are undeserving of my radio silence…I like to think of it as one last choice.

And sometimes they choose to say sorry.

On Being a Writer

Anonymous asked: “I have a hard time writing because there’s lots of stuff I wanna do in my free time, and writing is just 1 of those. Does that mean I’m just not dedicated enough to being a writer? I feel like it does, but that still doesn’t stop me.” 

I think it’s important to remember that writing is an art. Some people practice every day and others might go for weeks without writing a word, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have a story to tell.

Season 4 Trailer Analysis

Here it is, if you haven’t seen it yet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtGxLvrMGbo


So.

So, the first thing you notice here is probably that Keith is mysteriously missing from this discussion of the Coalition. I’d suspect it’s highly likely by this point that the Coalition is the ‘rift’ between Keith and the Paladins that we’ve been warned about, hence why he has gone-possibly in a fit of temper. However, there are also a few other points I’d like to bring to attention.

First of all, the timeline of when this scene takes place. Have a look at the background. Recognize it from anywhere?

Here we go. The backgrounds match up exactly; a barren, yellow, possibly sandy planet with technical-looking beacons; I think there might be a bridge there too. Since Keith is in the latter screenshot, but not the former, I think it’s likely the Coalition Debate takes place after Keith and Shiro are discussing arguing over Lotor. Therefore, Shiro has probably shot down Keith’s plan to look for Lotor, and Keith has now stormed off.

In this scene, Allura is standing under a bright blue light, closing her eyes. She is in Paladin armour. Therefore, this Blue Light scene may take place before the Coalition Debate. It may therefore be that the Coalition does not take place straight away in s4; there are a few scenes to get through beforehand.

The third point I noticed is Shiro’s positioning. He is at the head of the team, with them fanning out around him. It reminds me of a flock of birds; Shiro is the leader, guiding them where to go-suitable considering he is now actively guiding them towards a coalition. Even Allura is standing beside him, rather than at the head of the team. This may point to either two ideas; A), Shiro is still accepted as Leader by all the Paladins, or B) Shiro is accepted as Leader by all the Paladins except Keith, further forming the rift between them as they try to decide who will be the best leader.

I think Shiro may be holding a remote in his hand here, or-just thought of this-using his Galra hand to create a hologram of planets. The hologram is roughly the same purple/pink colour as his Galra hand. Could this be yet another piece of data installed in his arm, rather like the co-ordinates leading him to the Blade of Marmora? I definitely think there’s more to Shiro’s Galra hand that we’ve seen so far, but the way he is willingly showing the team a hologram he has created may suggest he is starting to view his prosthetic as a help, rather than a hinderance.


Coran: ‘Oh! Does that mean more Voltron events?’

More’ Voltron events. Evidently, Coran has been to one or two of these before, and has also enjoyed it greatly. There are two situations I can see from this quote.

A)     Like I said before, this Coalition Debate scene takes place late in the series, from after we see the Paladins do their first Voltron event

B)     By the start of s4, there has been a timeskip. This is supported by Keith saying ‘Lotor hasn’t been seen in months’. Could it be that when we rejoin the Paladins, they’ve been wandering around for months already, and have consequently set up Voltron events at a lack of anything else to do? This would be pretty cool and finally a way of measuring time in this series, but it’s odd a timeskip would occur halfway through a season (remember: S3 and S4 were meant to be all packed together into one big S3. That’s how they were developed; they were only split into two separate seasons once the episodes had been produced. It strikes me strange that, if we view S4 as being ‘part 2’ of S3, there’d be a timeskip. Makes more sense to put it between S2 and S3, or S4 and S5.)

Could it be that the Coalition Debate takes place at the end of the season, rather than the beginning?

That’s a pretty packed stadium. Don’t have much to say about this shot except I love the composition and the cool music that starts playing.

I’m not sure what these are, but I’d strongly suspect that they are linked to Quintessence, considering that they’re glowing, and also going towards what looks like a Galra base. The fact they’re travelling along a very deep rut seems to suggest that this is being done in secret; could there be some kind of underground Quintessence dark market, or something of the sort? Furthermore, they seem to be either robots, or sentinent beings, considering they are too small to be piloted by someone.

I for one am VERY happy to see Rolo back; I was rewatching his episode the other day and realized just how much I like him. It seems that Rolo has evidently redeemed himself in Hunk’s eyes, too, since they both seem pretty happy to see each other. I wonder if Rolo has the chance to play the hero, possibly saving the Paladins from trouble, or if Hunk simply has become more sympathetic to his former enemies?

Some people who don’t look too happy about this though are the ladies. Nyma is behind Rolo, almost glaring at his back; her mouth is set in a thin line, possibly disapproving. Remember that whilst Rolo seemed sympathetic to the Paladins, calling them ‘nice guys’, it is Nyma who convinces him that their personal gain is better than the overall safety of the Paladins. Is it possible Nyma is set up to betray Rolo at some point?

Also, Pidge looks wary about this. She is off to the side, as if she doesn’t want to shake Rolo’s hand in turn, and her arms are crossed, implying suspicion and a desire not to get sucked into the conversation. Her gaze flicks to how Rolo and Hunk are holding hands, which seems quite a particular animation choice.

I’m so happy to see Rolo and Nyma back, because I did like them. However, I’m not holding my breath that they’ll be good guys. Also note that their segment appears exactly when Shiro mentions ‘friends’, rather than when he mentions ‘allies’. Allies are someone you can trust. Friends can always stab you in the back.

Lotor has presumably just left the spaceship we can see in the background, and is now entering another room. Narti is in tow, with Kova on her shoulder. The thing that promptly jumped out at me here is Kova’s expression. She is licking her paw, almost in satisfaction, with her eyes half-closed. Has Narti just overcome an ally with Kova’s vital help? Secondly, Lotor looks…I’m not sure. Worried? Subdued? Guilty? He looks like the bearer of bad news, about to return to his Generals to break something they really don’t want to hear. It’s a far cry from his usual arrogant, smirking fashion. Something has happened here to shake Lotor up, and he’s not happy about it.


Keith: Go!

 

Sounds either like Keith’s barking an order at someone, or trying to encourage himself to do something dangerous. Judging from the black and purple background, I think he’s still in Black.

Oh hey, it’s Red. When I first saw this scene, I assumed Keith was back in Red and shouting ‘GO!’ to encourage Red to fly faster. Now, though, I think it’s most likely it’s Lance in Red, and Keith is shouting at him to fly faster. Red is evidently being chased by the Galra, shooting at her. It could be this was a tactical decision on the Paladin’s part, since Red is likely the only Lion fast enough to dodge these blasts. Could she be being used as a distraction whilst the other Lions attack?

This kind of looks like the giant talking head from Night at the Museum¸ ngl. What is it? Is it the head of a Lion? You can kind of see a snout and a muzzle there. Is it the Castle? Is it Rolo’s ship?

In this scene, this presumed-ship lands, sending a flurry of smoke and a notable shock of force to the ground, but I chose this snapshot because I want to point out a few things.

A)     The tower. It almost seems to be slightly glowing. Is this aboard a Galra ship, only this time on top of it, like a balcony?

B)     What is that orange smear in the distance? Is it a meteorite, the Sun, or another ship crashing?

C)     My most important point-the central Galra seems familiar to me. Almost like this guy…

And just for the record, I loathe this guy for hurting Shiro. But he may be closer to re-capturing Shiro than we think.

This seems like a practice run to me; showing their defenses and weapons to the audience as an AI or something like that attacks them. They lift the shield rather slowly, so I don’t think they’re in any actual danger. Most likely it’s just a show.

I’m not going to comment much on this since other blogs like @radioactivesupersonic have already commented on how scared Lotor looks, where is Narti, etc etc etc. What I will say is two things. One; why do the trailers keep showing us this scene? Evidently it’s EXTREMELY important to them that we see this. Why? Second; it occurs as Shiro says ‘We all knew this moment would come’. This, in the context of Lotor lashing out at someone in supposedly a state of fear or panic, screams ‘betrayal’ at me. Is it possible Lotor has just been betrayed by someone close to him, someone, a moment he should have seen coming?

 

Seems like the Paladins got themselves a whole fleet of new ships. With the colour of grey, brown and green, I’d suggest these come from a planet of growth and greenery. Maybe there’s a connection to the Green Lion there somewhere?

New villain! I don’t think we’ve seen this guy before, have we? Note that Pidge appears to be on her own, here. Is this someone she encounters trying to get to Matt?

Black. Black, Black, Black. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! It seems to me like her Paladin is in danger; if so, is it Shiro or Keith? Is Shiro a clone, if so, has she found Real!Shiro? Has Keith buggered off somewhere and she has to go save him? Are the Lions capable of their own consciousness and she’s finally communicating with her humans? PLEASE JUST TELL ME.

Shiro: Let’s do this!

 

Strange that this voiceover occurs precisely when Black starts leading the team into a supposed battle. Could this hint that Shiro is once again piloting Black, encouraging his Paladins that they can do this? Also, the purple glow at the floor suggests to me this is at a Galra base. Also also, the Green Lion isn’t there. Is this occurring when Pidge has flown off on her own to rescue Matt? Are the Paladins about to storm the base and rescue her? This is such a fascinating scene for me, and I am so so hoping it’s Shiro piloting Black in there.

Things really aren’t going too well for Lotor, are they? Evidently something has really caught him and his Generals off guard; seems to me, judging by the slight earthquake effect, like their ship has crashed or been hit. You can see all four Generals here; Narti and Kova are in the background.

Two things;

A)     The Castle’s Particle Barrier is falling apart at the back

B)     Their attacker has seemingly elected to ignore this fact and target them at the front instead

There’s fucking breadstick men behind him. Breadstick men.

Very different from these aliens we see now. As I said before…this isn’t the first Voltron performance they have done. Two different audiences means two different shows.

SPACE MALL SPACE MALL SPACE MALL SPACE MALL-

Okay, I am not a dramatic person, and I try to keep it off my accounts, but if I see one more person saying that Harry’s “treat people with kindness” merch is ironic, I will pop a blood vessel. I have become more and more less active on my accounts because I have seen too much abuse from ALL solo and 1D stans. Sometimes, people are just shitty, and it has NOTHING to do with who they support in music. Get that straight. I am a proud Harrie, and I never post degrading crap about any other fans, I treat them like a diverse group of human beings. Harry is a good person, and he has proved that time and time again, and he is my happy place, and lately social media has not at all been a happy place for me - so if anyone was wondering why I barely post, this is why. More people need to stop and think before they post something degrading to others, and wonder if it’s really necessary, or if it’s just a projection of something else. I used to love this fandom, we used to be a family, especially to those who don’t really have, or get along with their family, but lately it just brings me dread. Treat everyone with kindness is something we all need to do, because being an asshole isn’t going to get you anywhere, and if you don’t like something, ignore it. Rant over.

Knew I Loved You Then

Intro: OMG I am back and this is the first thing I have written to completion in about a month or so.  Something about having zero free time really cuts into writing time I don’t know, but I finally did the Thing. 

SO this is for my Night Writings of 1,300 followers challenge for @to-pick-ourselves-up-7​ with the scene - Falling in Love and I know you gave me a prompt but I couldn’t fit it in and I really liked this fic so I AM SO SORRY

I also based this off the song Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur - and I’ve been meaning to write a Scotty fic based on that song because every time I hear it I think of him.  It’s only the first verse, and I’ll post the lyrics below.    

Pairing: Scotty x fem!reader

Word Count: 2,307

A/N:  I KNOW I HAVE OTHER THINGS TO WRITE FOR OTHER PEOPLE BUT I GOT THIS FINISHED AND IT TOOK ME SO LONG AND I FINALLY GOT TO POST IT SO YEAH - oh and I tried to write this from Scotty’s POV, but still using the word ‘you’ so I hope that translated at least half decently. - more notes at the bottom. 

-Enjoy!-

I met you in the dark, you lit me up, 

You made me feel as though I was enough. 

We danced the night away, we drank too much, 

I held your hair back when you were throwing up. 

Then you smiled over your shoulder, for a minute I was stone-cold sober, 

I pulled you closer to my chest. 

Then you asked me to stay over, I said I already told you, 

I think that you should get some rest. 

I knew I loved you then. 


10:38 pm

Scotty met you in the dark.  

He was on his way out of the bar, having finally had enough with the loud music and the now packed dance floor, ready to retreat to his room with a glass of scotch to turn in early.  But as he wove his way through the crowd, a shoulder bumped his and he instinctively swiveled around to mumble an apology, his eyes not even flicking up to see who he'd run into. 

“You in a hurry there, slick?” A smoky voice called and he paused, bringing his eyes up. 

Standing before him was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen.   Hair slightly mussed, several strands plastered to your forehead with sweat, you must have been dancing.  Flushed skin, with warm cheeks that framed a sultry grin. Bright eyes looked up at him under raised eyebrows.  The most beautiful eyes he had ever seen.  

As he stared at you, speechless, your features began to change, into parted lips and a slightly surprised look.  Your hands came up to clasp over your mouth. 

“Oh my god, did I just say that out loud?” You said around your fingers, shaking your head wildly, and it made your hair bounce adorably. 

Finally catching his words, Scotty gulped, “Y-yeah, ye did.”

I wish some fans could stop making us feel guilty when the guys don't win. We all work hard, but the truth is b.a.p doesn't do good in music charts and as you explain, that influences a lot when it comes to music shows. I wish this fandom could stop this, we all want them to win but saying stuff like "they look sad and it's your fault because you didn't vote enough" it's bad. It's like guilt tripping fans and it's disgusting. We have become so negative.

Hi anon!

I want to preface my answer to this by saying that you are absolutely right. No one should be guilt-tripping any fan into doing more than they can or even want to - we are all dealing with lives outside of the fandom and people need to be understanding of limitations that others may have when it comes to being active.

BUT

I do understand and sympathize with the other side of your argument. I am a fairly active baby (atm lol) and I like to nose around and cross reference from tumblr, twitter, the fancafe etc - keep up to date if you will ^^

And it’s fairly noticeable that when certain events pop-up, for example the makestar photobook or BABY Selca Day - there are suddenly a million BABYz around hehe - posting their pretty selfies alongside their equally pretty bias and it’s great, I love it - these things are positive and fun.

However, when it comes to the sort of, grunt work of looping, streaming, voting, making e-mail accounts etc..the numbers appear to drop, dramatically. 

And when people, who are choosing to put their full effort in and stay up the late nights or wake up early - do the solid hard work - get no tangible reward - it can sting. People are tired and sad, and they might lash out - and to be fair, people should be allowed to vent their frustration on their own blogs ^^

I don’t think it’s fair to place blame but I can certainly understand the anger that usually stems from being emotionally drained. From feeling a little helpless. 

So I urge people on both sides of this thing not to stew in anger or get snippy - rather, reach out and talk ^^ Let’s all kumbaya and become support systems for each other. Being friendly, understanding and kind: It’s the BABY way! 

*Gosh, I really need to stop writing these long af sermons* but thank you for your question anon ^^

anonymous asked:

Hi, um, I was struggling a lot with this lately... After five years I am finally coming to terms that I feel much more like a guy than a girl, and experience gender dysphoria but due to reasons (both medical and personal) it's highly unprobable that I would ever be able to start the transition... My question is, can I still call myself trans? Or should I just consider myself nonbinary and leave it like this? I just don't wanna make other trans people uncomfortable...

Kii says:

Yes, trans people are not required to transition! (And also, nonbinary people are also trans.)

I would like to thank @leaalda for making these amazing banners.

This is an effort to spread the word about all fan fiction writers in our little fandom. If you would like to be featured or nominate a writer, please contact me. Please reblog this post if you can and check out some of @ficmuse work!

Just a fandom PSA

Unless you’re the author, you don’t hold the keys to any fandom. So stop playing gatekeeper. Stop acting like yours is the only valid opinion. Stop acting as though other people are incapable of having their own interpretations.

It’s easy - you don’t like something? Ignore. Scroll past.

But this garekeeping shit is getting old fast.

not to start discourse but why is it okay to insult someone’s appearance after they’ve done something problematic? like yeah, whatever they did was probably really awful and deserves to be criticized but people can learn and grow from the things they’ve done but what you’ve said about their appearance will either be really hard to change (like weight) or impossible even after they’ve redeemed themselves. and yeah you’re about to say things like ‘what about irredeemable people who have done things like murder’ there are other people out there with those same characteristics that you’re making fun of that will feel bad and have done nothing to deserve it.

Introducing the Early Morning Club! 🌅

Hello everyone! I am fairly new to studyblr (only about a month now, wow!) but I have received so much support and kind words from the studyblr community, and you’ve really inspired me to be more social and passionate about my studies! So I want to give back by creating a study group for people like me who wake up early (or want to wake up early), and have a more productive morningand if this idea flops i’ll just pretend it never happened 😅 

What this group will do:

  • share a discord chat together
  • tag each other in tumblr posts (could be specifically about how our morning went or just in general, to support each others’ blogs)
  • share advice and friendly support 

What this group is for:

  • tips and tricks for waking up earlier
  • checking in on each other 
  • incentive to wake up and not sleep in
  • support from others to be more productive
  • meeting new people and making friends with similar interests and goals
  • just to wish each other “good morning!” 👋 

How to join:

  • send me an ask or message me 
  • reblog this post
  • you don’t have to follow me but it would be nice

Mostly I just need to have some idea of how many people would like this, and once I get a list of interested studyblrs then I’d create the discord and the tag to track. How does that sound for everybody?

I’m super excited to see how this turns out and I hope others are just as interested in this as I am. Good morning and have a great day! 😊

Please remember that if you’re speaking with some one who is hurting, focus on them. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what to say, and it doesn’t matter if you wish you could do something.

Just by being there while they’re hurting is more than enough, because we always feel like we’re burdening others when we are hurting.

If you don’t know what to say, tell them that. “I don’t know what to say, but I am listening.” is perfectly alright.

Bonus:

When people come to you, ask them what they need. Some people are looking for advice on what to do, while others are just venting and don’t want advice. Some just want a friend to pull a Zuko and say “That’s rough buddy.” 

Ask them what they need and it’ll be easier for the both of you.

i am actually so happy people are noticing the annoying issues with this like i havent played doto yet but i am sure there are 20 other plots and stuff you can give to her

anonymous asked:

How do you balance tumblr and writing with real life? I really admire your ability produce such amazing work and frequently engage with us here while still living real life in the real world. It's such a hard balance to find, and so easy to accidentally become obsessed with the fandom and feel like you're just constantly refreshing tumblr. How do you do it?! xx

I can give you sort of a two-part answer to this. I want to note before though that this is completely, totally, 100% only for me, and not meant to insinuate things or say what’s right for other people. You do you.

The first part to this revolves around the fact that I’m older now. I’m still in my twenties, but closer to 30 than I am to 20, and now I have a career and a committed personal life that absolutely requires my attention (even if I’d rather be on Tumblr or writing or avoiding the real world some other way, which I do want to sometimes). So in terms of balancing that, it’s not really as optional as it maybe would have felt, if the alternative was me half-assing an assignment or something (not that that’s good either). It’s just less flexible, inherently, and also very substantially more high-stakes than it once was for me in terms of consequences if I don’t give my RL the attention it deserves.

The second part is kinda related to the first - this isn’t my first fandom rodeo. I’ve been around a few blocks. Not really ever on the Tumblr side, but via other mediums. And in the past, yeah, I have had difficulties balancing the real world and my desire to sit and refresh fandom stuff. This was also during a time when I was feeling kinda unfulfilled and having some personal challenges with my mental health and happiness, so I was looking for an escape. Some days I still am. But it eventually became a bit much and I stepped back, and then inevitably people move on.

So I guess now I have just developed more of a sense of what’s reasonable and manageable for me. When I have spare time I’ll write or play an ask game or when I’m bored waiting for something I’ll reblog or queue on my phone, but I am rarely sitting on Tumblr just waiting around and refreshing. (I recognize I answered this quick and as an example that’s because it’s before bedtime and I’m bored on my phone). But for instance after “take me home” I will be taking a break from regularly posting stories because I know I will have stronger RL commitments. This is fun and a nice escape and it’s enjoyable to fangirl and discuss tv and characters, but it’s just that - fun. It’s not a priority, it can’t be. That said, I’m glad you have the perception that I am balancing it! Thank you! Not sure my work is always that quality - if I spent more time it would be better - but it’s what it is given the time I have for it. ☺️

Name: Robert
Age: 26
Country: USA

Good Evening Everyone, I am Robert, I’ve been wanting a pen pal for a while. I’d love to meet new people. This is my first time trying to meet a pen pal.
A few things about myself.
I like conspiracy theories, Exploring new places, photography,the outdoors, & meeting new people.
I do enjoy all types of music from Jazz to metal.
I am vegetarian but don’t mind if you’re not.
I respect all types of people.

Preferences: No age preferences; No country preferences, Although it would be nice to meet someone from UK , Ireland, France, and Other European union.

a lot of us are aware how toxic the tu/mblr k/in community generally is and while i like to interact with other adult fict/ti/on/k/in a lot i have in recent years been distancing myself from the more stressful parts and the most stressful people involved in k/in (people being manipulative) and i feel better for it.

however what i am still tired of is feeling like i still have to prove myself to other people that i’m really oth/er/k/in and i’ve known it for a long time, and that’s generally why i dislike even the an/ti/k/in blogs who claim “we don’t mind people who are ACTUALLY k/in,” because like, what does that….what does that mean

Hi, I have a question.. I've always felt I'd be happier if I started to transition (mtf) but I also have a lifelong dream to be a musician, metalcore to be exact. But I'm a little worried transitioning might ruin my image and keep me from being able to make it in the industry, I feel torn because I feel like I have to put aside one happiness for the other. Do you think I could do both? And if not do you think it'd be worth throwing away who I really am for a lifelong dream or vice versa.

I would say that you should try and do both since it sounds like both parts are an important part of who you are.
When it comes to publicity there’s a golden rule in that industry, all publicity is good publicity. So I wouldn’t worry to much about “ruining” your image and while it may turn some people away it may attract others anyway,

All I have seen tonight is a reminder that a big chunk of this fan base never actually listened to Taylor when she said she felt like she compromised her artistic vision, and annoyingly still has no idea what sonically cohesive actually means. I have no doubt it will be diverse, but I still expect it to be sonically cohesive. Brian Mansfield took Ed's "diverse" and related it to the breadth of 1989, rather than jumping to it being sonically incohesive. That seems like a smarter take to me.

i just dont think it’s necessary to put other fans down - who are i am sure only well-meaning in their blog posts and their opinions- bc you disagree with them or have/had a different takeaway than they do.  To call people irritating or annoying who have taken the step to share an opinion really doesnt cultivate an environment where people feel comfortable sharing ideas, does it?

Diversity and cohesivity can happen at the same time, or they can be exclusive from one another. But it’d probably be prudent to just wait and see when we listen to it, i think.

And, you know, maybe people have different interpretations of what something means to be [sonically] cohesive. Is that the actual  way the person sings? Is it the musical style? Is it the arrangement? Tempo? Is it a similar song format? Type of music? is it all of those or only a portion? The beauty of opinions, is that they are subjective. 

At the end of the day, cohesive means, and i quote the dictionary,  cohering or tending to cohere; well-integrated; unified. Diverse means:  showing a great deal of variety; very different.  Someone can have a very diverse group of friends who all get along with each other and are well integrated with one another in an environment. But someone can also have a diverse group of friends who absolutely butt heads constantly and never fail to spar and are absolutely not a cohesive unit. Diversity does not predicate cohesivity. 

Can something be of a unified sound yet also very diverse? i’m sure. Can something be of a non-unified sound and therefore be audibly diverse but still have a unified theme lyrically? I’m sure.  Can an album have a prevailing sound and have a diverse theme, topics or lyrical style? it can. it can be any manifestation of the above? sure.  And even better, two people can listen to the same album and come away with completely different interpretations.
