i made a million of these today

SWITCH FROM UBER TO LYFT

Hey people who use those handy apps to call for a ride, get an easy way to protest Trump and those who support him! Uber’s CEO has publically stated his support for Trump and is on his way to go work on his Business Advisory team. Lyft, on the other hand, donated one million dollars last night to the ACLU in protest of the immigration ban. Many of the drivers for these two companies are immigrants. I made the switch today.

I KNOW THE POLLS CLOSE IN A FEW HOURS BUT PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK IT’S FUNNY OR YOU THINK IT’S JUST A JOKE (trust me, there are so many people that are just so fucking stupid in the country) OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A SIGN NOT TO VOTE FOR HIM, WELL--

WE HAD A MOCK ELECTION AT SCHOOL TODAY AND DONALD TRUMP WON MY FUCKING SCHOOL.

BY 52%.

MY SCHOOL IS FILLED WITH IDIOTS IN THE FIRST PLACE BUT KNOW I KNOW THAT THEY’RE SOMEHOW EVEN DUMBER THAN I HAD PREVIOUSLY CONCEIVED.

DON’T MAKE THE MISTAKE THAT 52% OF MY SCHOOL OF IDIOTS MADE TODAY

DON’T


VOTE


FOR


FUCKING


DONALD


TRUMP

IT IS NOT A JOKE, IT NEVER WAS, MILLIONS OF LIVES ARE AT STAKE.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT PEOPLE, SPREAD THE FUCKING WORD

HE


IS


NOT


THE 


RIGHT


CHOICE

Thank you to every single person who marched for human rights today- under the banner of a Women’s March- for putting your feet to the pavement and speaking out for the worth and dignity of all people. Thank you for your photographs and first-hand accounts, for providing irrefutable evidence of the strength and scope of our resistance to hate and ignorance and fascism. Keep fighting the good fight, and know that you are loved for it. 

Kim Bok Joo: Our Feminist Icon

In honor of #WomensMarch today I’d like to say a million thanks to the creators, writers and inspiration of Kim Bok Joo - an icon for future feminists.

Keep Marching On Women!

1. Bok Joo made being a woman strong. Her tears were strong. Her feelings, worn on her sleeve were strong. She was a woman. And she cried when she got hurt, she laughed with friends over boys and she gets giddy when her boyfriend calls her pretty. And that was strong too. We are taught that to be a strong woman, you have to stop being a woman. You have to be like Katniss Everdeen - you have to be sporty and shoot arrows and be cool and hip and liking pink things makes you a wimp. Bok Joo changed all of that. She made being a woman strong. Hell she beat up a guy in her baby pink coat! Bok Joo sends out the message that it’s okay to be a girl. You’re strong as a girl. Free to fall in love, free to have crushes. At the end of the day you can still lift 180 kilos of metal and beat up a guy who called you a slut for drinking and having fun with your friends. I think that’s the primary reason I love Bok Joo. She made being a woman, wearing pink and being concerned about pimples on your face strong. 

2. Bok Joo redefined the meaning of beautiful. I said this in the Joon Hyung post but Bok Joo did not have that traditional ugly duckling turns into a swan montage where she changes her clothes and gets all glamorous. No. Bok Joo gets a cheap plastic red hair pin from a street vendor. She clips it on her hair and she thinks she’s beautiful and she feels she’s beautiful. That’s real life. She made beauty her own. Not a standard of society but her own definition of beauty. Here’s a red clip I put on my hair, I look pretty. I love myself. That’s amazing! She made us realize that we are the only ones who can tell if we are beautiful. We have to find ourselves beautiful. That’s the only way we become beautiful. If we try to please society and conform to their standards then we’d be chasing our own tails for the rest of our lives. But if we accept who we are and find beauty in ourselves then, we become beautiful. And that’s a nice message to send out to kids who are not skinny, or white or tall or anything beautiful by society’s standards. Love yourself. You are beautiful. That’s what Bok Joo sent out to us, and for me, who was struggling with this as well, this is such an uplifting message. I am beautiful. Screw the rest of you.

3. Bok Joo made it possible to remain true to yourself and find love. She never had to change herself. She simply had to accept herself. I think that’s also an important message because what’s inside of us is what matters. Till the end Bok Joo remained warm. Life did not harden her, or make her cold. She never shut her heart out, she never grew hard. She took the hurts, and she learned from the hurts and that made her into a better person. But at the core she remained who she was as a kid who caught her falling classmate from the ceiling, to the woman who shot out of an interview to find her missing boyfriend. She remained who she was at the very end, and people grew to love her, for her. You don’t have to be anyone else, other than yourself to find love.

So I've kept quiet with my stuff for a while now

 cause I just like being lowkey about my goals and plans but I had to finally share this. So 2 weeks ago I made a video blending together my Love of Nerdy Stuff and my knowledge of Exercise Science and it went viral and today it just hit 1 million views which is the first time ever for a video on my channel

 also Last week I had just hit 16,000 subs on YouTube but because of that video people have been binge watching my stuff and I’ve gone from 16k to currently 47,000 and it keeps going up.

 Its really a humbling experience and cool to see so I just wanted to share that

Girls are the key to progress and development – Rescue Aid
On this International Day of the Girl, let’s not forget the millions of girls coming of age who are living in crisis.
By Betsy Laird

My amazing sister wrote a report on adolescent girls living in areas of crisis and some of the terrible challenges they face. I’ve been meaning to share this report for a while but got so caught up in all the pre and post election whirlwind.

Last night, she and I saw “Hidden Figures”, a movie which tells the story of three black women who worked for NASA in the 60s and were vital to the success of the first space missions. Their stories have not been told until now. Even today, girls are discouraged from pursuing STEM careers.

Our fight as women was recently made much more difficult. And as we fight for justice here, we can’t forget the millions of women and girls around the world who are prevented from making their own decisions and are continually abused.

To paraphrase a line from “Hidden Figures”: we rise together or not at all.

Yoi in a nutshell

Yoi truly made history

………….

I think we’ve made too much history…

I made the rounds at Chicago’s exotic car dealerships again today, and holy shit were there some unicorns around! Seeing a Koenigsegg One:1 was the surprise of the year for me, and the same can be said for seeing one of the first Bugatti Chirons to hit the showrooms. Most of the cars in these photos are worth at least $1 million, and hopefully will see plenty of use doing what they were designed to do.

Somebody got me into bodysuits today.  Actually, I got myself into this one, but somebody’s blog about how much they love bodysuits just revved up my engine and made it purr.  I’ve always love these quintessentially feminine items that encase the female torso.  This one is a gymnastics leotard by GK Elite.  Crushed velvet in a rich floral pattern with a totally delightful gentle hug all over your upper body.  Wearing this makes you feel like a million.  Only one small downside – they don’t have a snap crotch to allow ‘easy access’, meaning you basically have to peel them off to pee.  I guess that’s because gymnasts don’t want things coming undone in the middle of routines.  Depending on the type of judge, that could either reduce your points, or possibly increase them.  Those judges can be very arbitrary. 


If you like gorgeous, high quality bodysuits, you should really check out these gymnastic leotards.  Ballet ones are great too, but more limited in colors and styles.  These also go great as tops with skirts or tight pants.  

apparently sausage party is out today and not only has it already made over $3 million it’s generally got about a 70/100 on various review sites and I wanna give a heads up to anyone thinking about going to see it. I read the script and it is exactly what has been produced. If you read the script you already know how garbage this movie is, but if you haven’t (don’t), here’s a few key points for you:

-all of the food items are racist stereotypes. all of them. the movie opens up with a song specifically pointing out these stereotypes. half of the “jokes” in the movie are based on these stereotypes.

-the other half of the jokes are sexual. not even in a clever or nuanced way, more like middle school level “lol sex” type jokes.

-every other word is fuck I s2g

-there’s literally a point in the movie/script where the only females in the movie are abused so badly by another character that the script doctor literally had to go in and be like “woah hey maybe tone down that violence towards women there friend”

-the above mentioned character is actually the movies Mexican stereotype (a container of guac) who literally says out of his mouth that his whole thing is abusing women. that’s it. that’s his whole character.

-the food has sex. and not just for 30 seconds. for like 5 whole minutes. it’s graphic. a whole montage of disgusting food orgy.

-there’s also a lot of body horror, gore, and vore(? if it’s food being eaten does that count? I’m putting it on the list anyway bc it’s still pretty fucked up) and when I say gore I don’t just mean the food. human beings are also graphically murdered in this movie.

-there’s a rape scene. also beastiality. it’s the same scene. the main villain rapes a rat. (and it gets worse from there somehow)

-the whole thing is a thinly veiled commentary on the “futility” of religion and any people who are religious or believing of God are spineless sheeple living in ignorance.

I could honestly make a point for every minute of this movie, but I think this is more than enough to convince anyone thinking of going to see the movie otherwise. one last comment I would like to make is that I noticed a lot of the people actively supporting the movie are white men, and I believe that’s why it’s getting relatively good reviews. but don’t be misled, the movie is shit.

so if yall could please spread this around so people know what the fuck is up and hopefully don’t waste their time and money on this fucking shitstorm of a movie that would be gr8 👌

tl;dr dont go see sausage party. trust me, you don’t want to see this movie. it’s disgusting (more so than Seth Rogans other movies)

Frustrated

Simon x A/N …No Warnings….Requested? Psh no but I did get the idea from @emily-anna-reinhart ( By the way @emily-anna-reinhart if you read the end that would be amazing thank you!!)

Imagine playing football with Simon and you’re in goal and he’s taking shots. But you keep saving almost all of them and he gets frustrated and upset and he playfully picks you up in frustration and brings you in for a kiss.

So today in the UK it is Remembrance Sunday, during which we remember those who died as a result of World Wars 1 and 2. As many as 50 to 80 million died as a result of these wars.

However, I’d like to introduce you to a person you may or may not have heard of, whose name I have not heard mentioned once today, even though his work shortened World War 2 by up to two entire years.

This is Alan Turing (born 1912) who worked behind the scenes, and invented a machine to crack Nazi codes, meaning the British could read their messages and were able to save thousands of lives.

Turing was well known for his exceptional brains, which made him an excellent mathematician and computer scientist. His machinery which is considered the beginning of the modern computer. Without him, the outcome of World War 2 could have been very different. Hitler could have won.

However in 1952, the British arrested Turing for ‘homosexual acts’. He chose to take oestrogen instead of going to jail. What the chemical would have done to his body would mean he could never commit a homosexual act again (in effect, a chemical castration).

This was one of many drugs the British Law Enforcement made him to take, with aim to ‘cure’ his homosexuality.

The drugs destroyed his mind completely. He was unable to do basic puzzles by the end of his life, and in 1954, aged 41, he committed suicide. Isn’t it wonderful, to see how Great Britain thanked the man who saved their lives?

In 2009, the British Prime Minister made a public apology for the appalling way he was treated, and in 2013, Turing was ‘pardoned of his crimes’.

For me, that’s not good enough.

Turing was one of many LGBT persons destroyed for simply being who he was. I think that’s disgraceful, and these pardons have come far too late. We lost him. It’s too late to apologise to him. It’s too late to bring him back and save him. Nothing is going to change what happened to him, and nothing ever will. You may think that’s dismal. Well, it is.

I wanted to post about him today, because I am remembering him on Remembrance Day, when it seems no one else will. I wish there was a way I could go back in time, and apologise to him for what society did.

It would be great if you could remember him too. Thanks for reading.

youtube

I stumbled across this while watching @therealjacksepticeye ‘s old videos, and it made me so happy. Just hearing him going for 1000 when he was only around 300-something subscribers, and how he talked about not thinking his stuff was creative enough or that great. Today he has over 14 million subs.

I just started seriously doing Youtube a few months ago. I’ve been getting to the point lately where Jack mentions in this video, and that’s putting hours, sometimes a whole day’s work into something for it to only get like 10 or less views and no interaction. It’s hard when you put your heart and your all into something you’re so happy with and passionate about, but no one seems to notice or care. 

I’ve had that problem lately. Sometimes I spend an entire day recording, editing, and writing out animations and voice acting them. Sometimes I’ll happen to make a gaming vlog, or a vlog in general that I’m really proud of, only for it to fall flat. I ask my friends to view them but only one or two actually take the time.

I wish I knew what Jack did. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong, but I can’t even get people to send me feedback or constructive criticism to tell me what I could be doing better.

Jack was right. Youtube is hard, and it’s hard especially when you love it so much and you put so much effort into it. I see so many click-bait spams and people just spamming their stuff to get numbers and a quick buck. I just want to share my creativity with the world and have others be a part of it, and I just want to have fun. I want Youtube to be my reason to wake up and smile every day because I don’t have a lot of reason to smile in my life right now. I just want one thing to make me happy, and making Youtube videos and creating DOES make me happy.

I just feel like I’m putting so much work into things and not much is happening with it. Am I boring? Am I making a fool of myself? Am I going to be sitting here a year from now with not much more to show, and a ton more work put into a website that is slowly degrading to click-bait?

I’m a writer, artist, and aspiring voice actor. I love video games and I love creating. I have so many dreams, these dreams even my own family has told me are useless and won’t get me anywhere in life. I have these passions for a reason. I just hope one day I can wake up like Jack did and have so many friends, so many cool people to share things with. I just want to be happy.

If anyone would like to help give me some feedback, comments or constructive criticism to tell me what I’m doing wrong, my channel is here: VampyrePrince

I got to work today and my coworker gave me this scarf for Christmas? I remember joking about it with her like a month ago but she actually went and spent like 10 million hours crocheting this for me?? And its super warm and so thick I could use it as a neck-brace and sleep sitting up??? I am moved????

I want to make her something now but I don’t know what. What do people from Texas like? All I’m coming up with is boots, rattlesnakes, boots made out of rattlesnakes, and 90+ mph speed limits.

The women’s march, the world over, has already made a difference, and I will tell you why.

I was at Obama’s inauguration in 2008. It was freezing cold out, and I couldn’t see for shit; just packed into a crowd with half a million of my closest friends, unable to even lift my arms. And everyone was so happy. So hopeful. So ready.

I saw some of that today. Instead of gleeful cheers we had righteous yells, and sassy signs, and angry hearts. But there was hope in peoples’ eyes. And I haven’t felt hopeful for even a second since cheeto voldemort won the election, but today I got my hope back. Today we lifted each other’s spirits and reminded the world that we are strong and we can still fight. And I don’t know about y'all but that is something I desperately needed to see. A rebellion built on hope.

#129 - Thank You Very Much

… I love Nintendo. Nintendo is my childhood and a big influence in my life even up to this day. To hear that one of the men that made my childhood fun is now gone… Despite how busy I am these days, I had to make something for him.

Mr. Iwata. Thank you very much. I always looked forward to your Nintendo Directs. You had a great personality. You made awesome decisions. You always put the gamers first. Without you, Nintendo… hell, millions of us wouldn’t be where we are today.

Again, thank you. We’ll miss you.
