why are some of your spreads and quotes so similar to tbhstudying but you don't credit her?
hmm… i really don’t think my spreads are copies of hers?
i learned calligraphy mainly by watching her videos and just now have I been able to focus less on pressure and letter formation and more on developing my own style. maybe that’s why my calligraphy looked so similar to hers. however, now that i’ve pretty much got the hang of the fundamentals, i’m focusing on developing my own unique style. you could probably see from my instagram that i’m starting to do that.
i pull my quotes from a variety of different places. some of them are the ones she reblogs (i think), but some of them are from other blogs, or just from searching the internet for inspirational quotes that really resonate with me.
before, my bujo was largely based on inspiration. some of it was from her, some of it was from studyign, some of it was from amandarachlee, and some of it was from studyrose. if you were to look through my april and may spreads, they’re mainly copies of other people’s spreads (which is why i didn’t post most of them). most of the ones i did choose to post were completely original.
now, i don’t look at her bullet journal before i make my spreads, or anyone else’s for that matter. i have tried some of the general layouts that she uses, as well as the general layouts that a lot of other people use. i have a tag on my tumblr (to try) which bookmarks layouts and elements i want to try in my own bullet journal in the future. i don’t think i pull inspiration from her any more than i pull inspiration from anyone else.
also, for those who say my handwriting looks like hers, i actually modeled it on someone who i know in real life :)
i’ll definitely try not to base my spreads too much on anyone else’s in the future, though. thanks for the feedback, anon!
I’ve been interested in doing moodboards for a while now, but have been wayy too scared to lol I just did one for the amazing @rileywrites-93 based off of her fic, “A Good Day” (ONE OF MY FAVORITE FICS EVER??), however, and loVEd doing it! You can see it here!
Was just going through your recent posts and wanted to ask some things, What colour did Rachel dye her hair for the play and did she have that same colour when she was killed.Were her parents and other parents allowed to go into the crime scene and see the bodies and retrieve anything (in this case the silver wedding band she was wearing) Thank You!
Rachel’s hair had a red tint when she died. I found two quotes regarding her hair color. One says her hair had a purple tint, one said one had a red tint. But based off the picture of her getting ready for prom, only a few days before her death, you can very easily tell it was red. (I enhanced it a bit so you can really see the tint).
“I have kinda short, very straight brown hair that’s tinted red. My mom thinks I tinted it this color for a part in the school play, but I just used the play as an excuse—I really just wanted to do something funky, and tinting my hair red seemed a lot less painful and less permanent than piercing my bellybutton.” - Journals of Rachel Scott.
“Playing the part of Valerie also demanded a radical change in Rachel’s appearance, some thing she embraced with open arms. Her family may have been surprised to see her cut off her beautiful brunette hair and dye what was left purple. But for Rachel, it was all part of what it took to convincingly portray a character who looked as if she was a part of the grungestyle alternative-rock subculture.” - Rachel’s Tears
For your second question, yes. Parents were allowed to visit the crime scene. However the parents did not visit the crime scene while their children’s dead bodies were still laying there. (I know it took Kelly’s parents a while before they could even drive past the school). The bodies remained (mostly) untouched until they were sent to the morgue. Most autopsies were performed April 22 so they weren’t laying there for too many days. The first tour of the crime scene was 6/15/1999.
I’m sure the parents were able to have the option to take home any belongings they wished for from the morgue before the bodies were buried. You really can’t disturb a crime scene. Taking anything from the scene is kind of like stealing evidence. And also I don’t think parents could even visit between the 20th-22nd (when the bodies were still there). Only agents and detectives were allowed in until they were sure everything was safe. The parents did however visit during the renovations:
Can you please tell me what the hell is going on with Norman and his anxiety situation of Caryl? WHAT IS GOING ON?!
He’s basically said something in an interview that has had people doubting if Caryl are ever going to happen.
Norman’s quote was: “I don’t know if Daryl would recognize it when it’s happening.”
The paragraph that was wrote in the interview was this though:
Daryl Isn’t Ready To Date, Though Reedus is not a fan of ‘shipping, but did note that there may have been something in the past with Carol, and maybe with Beth. Season 8 won’t be season date though. He’s not in the right head space for romance, and ultimately, “I don’t know if Daryl would recognize it when it’s happening.” (kudos to @lacybug0718 for posting this from the interview)
Now I don’t know if they’ve made this whole paragraph up based on that one small quote, but it wouldn’t surprise me. If it was based off that quote and previous interviews, then it’s a load of wank and honestly I’m not all disheartened by this.
Unless there is a direct quote saying Daryl will not be seeing any sort of romance this coming season, then I’m chill.
it sucks because it feels like whenever i actually see the kind of “"cursed”“, out-of-context, weird content with no caption that my dash used to be full of, it always turns out to be posted from picsthatmakeyougohmm and that just kinda ruins it for me and makes it feel inorganic? That stuff is absolutely my favorite type of content that I find on here but it seems like a lot of the cooler blogs based around it have either left or switched to posting gore and now all that’s left is picsthatmakeyougohmm. like this is a blog that’s too on-the-nose about it, like all they’re doing is reposting content from the real allstars with a URL that is just a random string of characters or some russian phrase. it’s like the easy way to get this sorta picture is to just go on "cursedimages” or “picsthatmakeyougohmm” rather than going out and seeking it yourself and it just sorta saturated the market and made it mainstream and it’s almost kinda made it less special for me imo like my blog used to be nearly only that type of content before it boomed and busted and i honestly wish i could go back now that the dust is sorta settled

-I don’t know Arashi well and I don’t recognize their voices so if the camera isn’t focused on them, I’m often not sure who said what, so in this post I shall just refer to them as “one of the Arashi members” sorry.

Our Short-Short Films are out! This is the one I worked on with a lot of great peoples. I did the design of the main character Brian.
“Created by teams of 1st year Character Animators and CG Artists at The Animation Workshop in 4 weeks. Each team is assigned a quote, mood/emotion, random element and style guides to base the film on as well as a target audience: Children aged 4-6.”
So, I’m putting it all on the table today. There is a photo of me online.
I didn’t put it there. I don’t generally post or even share photos of myself on the internet, but recently I allowed a friend to take a picture of me and shortly after, that picture ended up in the center of a rather unpleasant meme.
You probably already guessed which meme that is, so let me admit, yes that is me, Ari Bach, author of the Valhalla Trilogy and this blog, and that really is me without any Photoshop. BUT- I never condoned the meme now based on that photo and I absolutely never said or did what it quotes me as having said and done.
I believe that crocodiles are one of the coolest animals in the world and I would never, ever harm one as the meme suggests. Wild animals, in my experience, just want to be left alone and that’s what I do, I leave them alone. So the claims of the meme are completely false, even if the photo is real. Secondly, I want to clarify that the sword was fake, a plastic prop sword from a movie I worked on some years ago. And thirdly, I am fully aware that crocodiles don’t eat bike tires and I would never try to feed one to a crocodile. I never even touched the bike tire, it was just there in the background and was never used as the meme suggests, it was never coated in Vaseline, and it was never “given to an orphanage” after the picture was taken.
Also problematic is the obvious controversy surrounding the inappropriate viewpoints the meme suggests I hold. I want to make it very clear that although I was wearing “corpse paint” like the metal band mentioned, I do not share their views on Donald Trump and I will be voting for Bernie Sanders myself.
Finally, please let me say that I feel very wronged by the posting of and misuse of this photograph. That was meant to be a private and solemn moment between me, the crocodile, the photographer, the clown, the man in the zebra stockings and of course, Robert Downey Jr. It was wrong to post, it was wrong to meme counter to my real beliefs, and I will be pursuing legal action against the Yakuza for posting it as they did.
Do you have any of the art/design work you've done outside of rooster teeth posted online? I think it'd be neat to see your talents in other avenues (and definitely am not looking for my own educational benefit no way whats a "graphic design major")
Ok. So this question is the one I was most excited about. I just think this couple’s quotes are not only beautiful but so powerful. So this time I’m posting the top 11 from least to most votes.
11 (tie). 6x07 Why did I have a thing for you? I don’t know, Stefan. Maybe it’s because I thought you worth having a thing for, because when I woke up as a vampire you told me that I would get through it and I did, because when I watched Elena move on with your brother I couldn’t imagine why she would let anyone like you go, because you were practically my best friend, because I trusted you.
This is a long quote but it is perfection through and through. I love it when characters express why they really love the other with real reasons and not just feelings. This shows anyone that these two are completely right for each other Plus, Caroline showed her vulnerability but also her strength and her character growth.
11 (tie). 4x03 Come to me, whenever you want and I won’t let you lose control.
This quote shows the beginning of their “best friendship”. I believe what she said was exactly what he needed to hear. With this quote she is accepting him and offering her unwavering help. This quote made her his sober sponsor, confidant and best friend.
9. 6x16 I like you, Caroline. I don’t know when it become more than friendship but it did. And it scared me so I pushed it away.
I believe one of the most important things in a relationship is mutual admiration. And this quote exemplifies just how highly Caroline thinks of Stefan. I find it very adorable and just once again proves why Stefan is the right guy for her. (Bonus points for Stefan’s face in the second gif)
I find it very fitting that the same number of people voted for this quote than for the last one. Again, the mutual admiration is completed with this quote. Personally, this is my favorite out of all their quotes. Mainly because what they’re talking about is something so important and rare in that world: their shared respect for life.
8. (4-way tie) 2x02 I promise you, i will not let anything happen to you.
This quote is probably their first meaningful quote ever. (Unless you count 1x01 meaningful, which I do-as foreshadowing) Anyway, what’s so poweful about this quote is that it holds true throughout all the seasons. Even in 5x21 where Stefan gave his life for her. I believe this is a very important basis of their relationship; the fact that they would do anything for each other.
8. (4-way tie) 6x14 When you told me you hated me, that was pretty much the worst thing I had heard in a long time……I think we both know I never really hated you.
Well this quote kill me every time. It’s like they both said what the other had wanted to hear for so long! Caroline needed to hear that Stefan felt enough for him to actually care so much. Stefan needed to hear that she didn’t hate him because this is something he had been trying to remedy all seasons. It is the perfect quote to lead up to a kiss because it’s what they both were waiting for to take that last step.
Stefan being there for Caroline is all I love in this world. This quote is so incredible because even without his memories, Stefan’s only subconscious instinct was to be there for Caroline. Amidst all the confusion, the only thing that was clear for him was that he needed to be there for this girl.
You know what’s so amazing about this quote? It’s that, throughout the seasons, Stefan’s been the only person that truly accepts Caroline for everything she is; not just what he likes about her. So it is true: she doesn’t have to pretend with him because he knows and loves every single aspect of her.
2. 6x15 Maybe all love isn’t true love in the messed up way that you and I have experienced it but, I think this could turn into something even better.
No wonder this is so high up in the list. This moment, in my humble opinion, basically spells out ENDGAME in big red shiny letters. It is amazing to think that after everything Stefan has gone through with Katherine and Elena he still believes that things with Caroline can be something even better. It just goes to show how legitimate and powerful Steroline is. There is no doubt from this moment on.
1. 4x19 I think that someday, you’ll meet someone new and you’ll fall madly in love, and you’ll have moved on without even realizing it.
