i mean its not that bad right

anonymous asked:

Poor Armie. Everyone is making fun of him dancing, saying it's cringy and what not. I've seen that clip so many times now and in all honesty I thought his dancing was good compared to the rest. I mean have you seen the others? They're just as bad or worst 😂

I know! I mean, I can certainly tell that his rhythm is a more carefully cultivated one, but its still there and he looks great letting go in the dance floor. Luca said that he likes to make his actors dance in movies because there is just something so sensual about a man dancing. I think that Armie danced without inhibitions (despite obviously having them) and Luca was right, it was sexy. I respect the right to cringe but I just don’t see it. I was full blown heart eyes emoji all the way. Until Timmy danced and then I was drool emoji.

What's ur opinion on the Venezuela situation. And while we are on that why do no leftists here talk about it

I think people are quiet because it is better not to speak about things you haven’t read much about. This will be short for the same reason.

The situation is this: Venezuela has been subject to assault on its attempts to build socialism from the early days of Chavez, from attempted coups (you can watch “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” which is free on YouTube, for an understanding of the 2002 US-backed coup to depose democratically elected Chavez) to collusion between the US and its allies to lower the price of oil specifically to weaken the Venezuelan economy. The current economic crisis is the result of a multitude of factors, but the intentional lowering of oil prices by the US and its allies is one of the most important, as well as the failure of the Venezuelan government to diversify its exports such thst its entire economy wasn’t tied so strongly to the price of oil. The resulting economic crisis (resulting, again, not from -socialism- in the generic, but from specific attempts to undermine the Venezuelan government) has, of course, resulted in widening anti-government sentiment, especially among classes whose ability to consume has been limited.

That last part is important- many of the most impoverished in Venezuela still support the government because their ability to eat, to go to school, etc, has been directly provides by Chavista policy. In some papers this will be talked about as buying votes, or bribing those without privilege. In reality this is the relationship between a government not of bourgeois character and those among its people who most need help and empowering- that these people’s livelihoods have been so tied to the government is evidence of the good work being done by its government, not indicative of bribery.

This crisis has been worsened by hoarding and price fixing by Venezuelan companies which are privately owned. The Venezuelan government, contrary to what many people assume, does not control all production and distribution within its borders, and many private companies seem to be able to produce some products and not others, intentionally stirring up discontent. In a recent Telesur video (which is propaganda and should be seen as such, but this merely means that it is supposed to teach you something specific and not that everything or even anything it claims is false on its face) explained that there seemed to be a shortage of toilet paper, but no shortage of other paper products like paper towels, paper plates, etc, suggesting that the problem was in production and distribution rather than lack of demand for products (who does not want toilet paper?) or lack of access to raw materials. There have also been numerous claims of things from toys to food being hoarded by the wealthy.

In response to this crisis (again, one intentionally wrought upon the country), the government of Venezuela has made several moves which I do not support in and of themselves in an attempt to combat the opposition and maintain its power, including the potential dissolution of the one governing body in which the opposition has a meaningful voice, and crackdown on protesters using means of violence I consider overkill for the tactics being used in those particular moments. But leftists need to understand that we don’t pick sides based on good guys and bad guys- and, even if we did, the opposition has committed its own unseemly and unnecessary acts of horrific violence as well, including literally burning people- but based on the class character of the actors involved. That, and that alone, is the basis of solidarity. The “opposition” is first and foremost a euphemism and a misnomer because it includes a number of elements from social democrats to the most extreme elements of the far right, but its hodgepodge of demands includes austerity, increased privatization, etc- the class character of the opposition is decidedly bourgeois, and the class character of the Venezuelan government is decidedly not bourgeois, even if you don’t want to go so far as to call it proletarian in character. That alone ought to tell us who we maybe not support but eye with more suspicion, see as the greater threat, etc. The class character of the actors involved is very clear, and it is on this basis that, whether you “support” the Venezuelan government or not, you should certainly not “support” the bourgeois opposition. Solidarity is not about good feelings and liking who we work with and so on, but about defense against right wing antisocialist and anti proletarian policy, and advancement of the goals of socialism. I do not think that Venezuela ever achieved socialism. I do not think that Venezuela is a perfect or even very good model for future socialist projects.

To be very clear here, what is being attempted by the opposition is the 2002 coup by other means and by counterrevolution as opposed to outright military coup- the goal is to unseat a democratically elected leader and to impose the will of the bourgeois and right wing elements of Venezuelan society on the people of the country. Regardless of how I feel about the decisions made by the government in the fact of this crisis, of course I do not support a mishmash of right wing elements attempting to undo the work of building something like socialism. I am no Chavista, but “Viva Venezuela” ya es el té, and I do not take kindly to seeing support for right wing elements passed around like it means nothing.

10 Things I Loved About Mass Effect:Andromeda

Warning: Spoilers! And I wrote this on the spur, so there might be grammatical errors.

1.      I enjoyed the story. Yeah, people will say it recycles from the trilogy, but come on, people. Why are you surprised? Bioware recycles their plotlines all the time. It’s pretty much the same in all of their games. A protagonist gains special abilities and leads a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits team to defeat a big threat. And I’m not bothered by that. Sometimes familiarity in your franchise is good, just as long as you do new things to the formula, and I think they do.

What interested me the most was the theme of starting over. A lot of people in the Andromeda Initiative were former criminals or outcasts. The reason they joined was to start a new life, and it’s explored in the main questlines, the loyalty quests, and numerous side quests. I was worried about the game talking about colonization since humans are looking for a new home, but I was pleasantly surprised that the game made it clear that Andromeda is the angara’s home first, and humans and other Milky Way species will have to work with them. Thank god! No Mightey Whitey trope this time!

2.      Ryder as the player character. I honestly never thought I would love Ryder as much as I did when I played the game. Sure, no one will ever replace Commander Shepard, but Ryder isn’t meant to replace the Commander, rather show a different perspective in a new story. Commander Shepard is the hero we want to be while Ryder is more of a relatable character. Ryder has to learn through the entire game how to be a leader while going through the obstacles of their inexperience and youth so people will take them seriously. And it was compelling, uplifting, and at times amusing to see them become a hero in their own right and step out of their father’s shadow.

Also Sara and Scott felt like their own person. In the original trilogy, the player character is pretty much the same no matter what gender. But sometimes the dialogue can be different depending on if you play a male Ryder or a female Ryder. That’s because they are two different people who have had their own experiences and personalities. That really adds to the replay value!

3.      Female aliens everywhere! One of my major issues with the original trilogy was the lack of female Turians, krogans, and salarians. Sure we had asari an all-female race, and female quarians, but it felt weird that we met so many aliens with very few ladies. Not only do we get a female Turian squadmate, we also get plenty of lady alien NPCs gathered everywhere for random quests. We also have Kesh who works at the Nexus. And we get to see female salarians! And they kind of look the same as male salarians except with different voices. Thank god! It would’ve been horrifying to see salarians with boobs. Uh! And I’m pretty sure there were just as many female angara NPCs as there were males.

4.      The romances. Especially the queer ones. One of the things I love about Bioware games are the romance paths. Bonus points if there is a queer option. And as of patch 1.08, this game has the most number of queer romances in any Bioware game. I think my two favorite romance paths are with Sara and Vetra and Jaal and Scott. While representation for the LGBT community is improving in media, there’s no denying we still have a long way to go. And after again the crap year 2016 where we had a huge number of queer women characters die in tv shows, it was so wonderful to have a healthy and happy relationship between two women when I first played the game. And even if it wasn’t added until the patch, the romance between Jaal and Scott is absolutely sweet since we see two men show a lot of love and affection for each other which is rare to see in media.

5.      The Tempest Family. I adore every single character on the Tempest, and they really did feel like a family once you played further into the game. I am a sucker for found families, and to see these people who are trying to find a home ending up finding a home with each other just gives me so many feels!

Since there’s not really a huge crew in the ship like in the original trilogy when Shepard had an army of humans. In Andromeda, we have six squad mates, four additional crew members, and Ryder. And I think it made the family more intimate. It’s like our own little family lives on the Tempest.

Also I liked how there were more quests spread out throughout the game with the squad which I think was lacking in Inquisition. Plus. Movie Night is the best scene ever!

6.      In my opinion, the side quests were fun. I think this was one thing they improved from Inquisition. Inquisition side quests just felt like a bunch of fetch quests that got kind of boring pretty quick, and didn’t really add to the overall story. Some highlights from Andromeda were: Kadara, the angara reincarnation questline, the Turian jailed for murder, the anti-AI group, meeting Zaeed’s son, and those kids sending out a distress signal for a new light for their weed plant. HAHA!

They were compelling in their own right and included cut scenes instead of the Inquisitor going to some location like in Skyrim to do a thing come back to the quest giver saying, “I did the thing.” “Ok, good.”

7.      Unlike in Inquisition, there’s actual payoff for some of the quests you do. I don’t mean to be mean to Inquisition, I still love the game, but remember when we were promised that you had to build your forces up in order to defend against the main threat. Yeah, you built forces to get influence points to gain perks, and that’s it.

In Andromeda, while, yes. It’s not the same level as Mass Effect 2. When you actually complete quests and help out leaders, you can get different results during the final battle. Like, there’s a chance Captain Dunn may not survive.

Also, when you get 100% viability on all the planets, you get a special surprise on Habitat 7- being told that it will one day be habitable because of our efforts. Sure it was a side quest, but it just felt so rewarding!

8.      The climax was actually fulfilling and exciting. Again, something else Inquisition was lacking in. Seriously, when I first played Andromeda, I legit gasped when the archon was taking control of SAM node. The villain was actually living up to his threatening nature!

Just when we think we got everything under control, and are about to find Meridian, the Archon fucks shit up, and our sibling has to step up to save the day. Then we have to gather people we helped out and prepare for a final battle, and Ryder can finally prove themselves as a true Pathfinder and kick the Archon’s ass once and for all. People are saying the ending was as disappointing as ME3’s? Pfft…What are you even talking about?

9.      The angara. Bioware never fails to make me love an entire fictional species. Yeah, it feels a bit off that they pretty much have the same faces and the same 3 voice actors, but I really do love their culture. And I appreciate that they were clearly coded as POC while Andromeda didn’t go through with the whole Mighty Whitey Trope. The game wants you to respect their culture and to respect their home.

I love the angaran people are open about their feelings, I love how their religion believes in reincarnation, I love how we see angaran scientists, soldiers, merchants, mercenaries, and civilians. Also Aya and Hivraal are absolutely gorgeous!

And when Jaal finds out his people were created by the Kett, I was worried it was going to go the Dalish elves route, but Jaal points out that it doesn’t change anything about the angara. They are still their own people. And that was such an uplifting message.

10.  The overall light-hearted tone. I wrote a small post that got a good number of notes. (Probably the biggest number I’ve ever gotten), so to quote: “There was always this sense of hope and optimism about finding a new home. ‘Yeah, things may have gone totally wrong, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make them better’ was the overall message I got.

And really, with so many bad things happening in the world right now and too much of our entertainment supposedly being our escapism being dark for the sake of dark, this was something I think a lot of us needed.”

Mass Effect 3 had its light-hearted moments, and I love it, but man, that game was emotional draining.

It’s a bit discouraging to love something so much and get recommended videos on youtube pointing out the same flaws of that certain game, and why they thought it was a huge disappointment. Do I agree with some of their criticisms? Sure. Does the history behind the production explain the flaws? Oh absolutely.

           But people seem to forget that the original Mass Effect trilogy wasn’t without its flaws. I mean, sure everyone can agree on the Mass Effect 3 ending, but I could make a list of all the issues I have with the other Bioware games including Dragon Age: Inquisition (which despite winning Game of the Year, kind of suffers the same problems Andromeda had).

           So yeah, after the crap year of 2016, I was so excited to get a newly-released game that made me happy. And still makes me happy, and makes me in the mood to play another Ryder.

anonymous asked:

hey but i honestly don't understand why "female" is bad. I'm not trying to be condescending or anything I just really don't see why it's a bad thing. I mean, girls call guys male, right? So I just don't get it idk maybe im just dumb

Girls do not call men “males” unless it’s to be petty in response to being called females.

Men use “females” in the place of bitch or hoe. It’s a more socially acceptable way to disrespect us.

Female is an adjective. There is already a word for an adult female: woman.

Have a good day.

Travelling in a forest can be very dangerous...

Context: This is from very early on in our campain, there are three of us in the party me a Half Elf Paladin, a Fey-Corgi Articifer  and a Tiefling Wild Mage. We had been approaching a goblin cave and had one gobiln captive with us. We sent the Tiefling ahead to scout.

Paladin: What happens if the goblin runs ahead and tries to warn everyone that we are coming.

Articifer: Good point maybe we should tie him up.

Paladin: Don’t worry I got this. *I step forward and attempt to knock him out. I roll a nat20*

DM: Ok so you go up behind the Goblin and hit them with the butt of your sword, it caves in his skull. It falls to the floor very much dead.

Paladin: Oh Sh*t, er I didn’t mean too! I mean you saw him struggling right? Right?!

Articifer: You complete idiot Ian!

Tiefling comes back and sees the goblin at my feet: What happened here! I leave you alone for two minutes!

Paladin: Errr a really big tree branch landed on his head…

Articifer: Yeah a tree branch… lets go with that.

I somehow manage to bluff the Tiefling.

Tiefling: Oh ok well. I guess we just need to be more careful in future then…

Now whenever anything bad happens in our campaign its always blamed on a tree branch.

 There are things I find pointless, meaningless, unnecessary in fandoms and let the synonyms continue please. I’m someone who’s relatively new to kpop. Like more than a year but still. I don’t know how many of these are relatable but well. 

1. Hating on girl groups.

Originally posted by misamo

Like why? I’ve heard so much of crap about girl groups having too easy choreo or shit concepts or this and that. I personally don’t listen to girl group songs much. I just listen to whatever I find suiting my type of music so if I find their song nice, I listen to it and that’s that. They work hard too. Their concepts aren’t between the extremities of cute and sexy. There’s more to it. They’re artists too. If you can love your faves, you can respect other’s faves too. 

2. Fanwars. Even within the fandom. 

THIS IS WHAT THEY DO. But then..

Originally posted by lullabyun

Continuing from the last point, hype up your faves, like scream how much you love them. But why is that accompanied by “My faves did this, when will yours ever” or “Your faves don’t stand a chance they’re talentless” yada yada yada. Why? The point is to enjoy the music. And love your artists. Where does the part of insulting others come in? I have literally seen fans tweeting shit like “I wish this person dies in a plane crash”. Like??????? Immature fans? I guess so. But how Immature as a person can you get?

Shipping is for fun. I don’t ship as such. I just find things cute. But. Overdoing shipping is something that’s way too common and there’s literally stupidity over which ship is better. Like congratulations. You just fighting over who knows what the fuck?

3. Whitewashing and beauty standards.

Originally posted by jjkook

Don’t even get me started. I understand the obsession with fair skin but I don’t understand it. Meaning, I’ve seen the craze, but where’s the logic? Idols look like they came out from a sack of caster sugar or worse, white paint. Like snow is literally THAT white. I try fanart at times. If I pick a picture, I can’t get the tone to match the picture because It’s. Literally. White. Humans aren’t snow. And Melanin is beautiful. Scars and acne and pimple marks just means they’re human. Simple. Celestial Boy literally shut down because it released non whitewashed pictures. Pardon my language but fuck beauty standards. I’m saying this even if I know it matters to them but that doesn’t mean I’ll accept it.

4. The need to show skin and objectification.

Originally posted by sprinkleofsuga

Abs. Muscles. Bare skin. I don’t understand. If they’re uncomfortable doing it, why would any fan ask for more? Recent events of the Aladin fansign for instance. Why?? Unbutton?? Like?? I’m sorry if you’re really deprived of seeing skin, but is blatantly asking to do something like that correct in any sense? We don’t love idols for just their body correct me if I’m wrong. We love them for the people they are as a whole? Right?? Personality and their comfort comes first?? It’s primary??

And sexualising and objectifying needs to stop. Please. I won’t elaborate. The implication is pretty clear I think.

5. Losing weight and overwork.

Originally posted by yoonseokismyreligion

I’ve talked about this before too. Idols starve themselves. Or may even diet (which also means following restrictions which doesn’t always mean its bad). But I’ve seen idols faint because of a) less food and b) too heavily packed schedules. They’re human. I don’t know what else to say. Fame comes for a price doesn’t seem like a beautiful explanation to me. It’s their work they love and I’m not one to tell them what to do. But yeah I get pissed off. 

6. Solo stans + Idols decide what they do.

Originally posted by steals-dreams

Please. How many times. Has this been brought up. Like. I’m tired now. You aren’t a part of the fandom if you like only one member. Gtfo.

Also. If they want to get piercings, tattoos or make friends. What’s the problem? If they do something within their private space it’s their business. They decide who they hang out with, or date for that matter. As long as it’s not obviously self harming in any way (e.g. Toxic relationships) 

7. Standards for being a fan.

Originally posted by ken-z-the-aesthetic-queen

If you don’t buy their stuff you’re still a fan if you don’t know everything about them you’re still a fan if you don’t watch all variety shows they do or if you fail at some random YouTube video saying “Only real xyz fans can answer this” YOU’RE STILL A FAN. There are no conditions to be a fan. Just be respectful. Don’t spread hate. Enjoy their music have fun and do whatever you can to contribute within your comfort zone. And don’t be a koreaboo. 

There’s possibly more points to add to this. Again, these are all my personal opinions. But hey. There’s always a good number of people who use common sense and well there are a lot of positives in fandoms too. Its family like, you make friends, teamwork and of course great music. Criticism is easy but the brighter side deserves to be seen too.  

anonymous asked:

Hey Viria! I often come onto your blog to check out your PJO/HoO art because I love it. It always make me want to draw art of my own, but I'm bad! People tell me that it's all about pratice, but do you second that? I mean, you're super talented so I thought I'd ask you. It's just that I get frustrated sometimes because I want to draw a particular scene or character from a really good book but it always turns out bad! Any recommendations? And if it IS true, how can I get better? Thanks a million!

I definitely second what people have told you! It IS about practise! 

And, to be honest, I don’t quite see myself as “super talanted”. I didn’t draw as good from the start. I had the stage (A LONG ONE), feeling like you do right now, not being able to draw a scene I see so well in my head because my hand just wouldn’t cooperate. It will turn out not as good as you want it too for a few years, at least.

Building up a skill is like growing a tree. It won’t grow overnight, and you have to regularly water it or else it will just stop growing and die. So, you can get better by growing and watering your tree! Don’t get discouraged to the point when you just stop, because it will not get you anywhere. Also, there are things you can’t yet draw, that’s true. But look at all the things you CAN draw at this point. Look at it this way: when you were a baby, at some point, you couldn’t even hold a pencil. Couldn’t even WALK, and look how good you are at it now, you can even run!

It’s the same with drawing really. Keep on and it will be great!

there’s nothing more awkward than when a guy acts like you’re friends but is only waiting for the right moment to shoot his shot and the entire friendship is awkward and contrived and you feel guilty for not being nicer but also not wanting to lead them on 

you know that bit of witchcraft where you transfer negative energies and maladies into an egg? and how you’re supposed to smash the egg afterwards? 

it seems like a waste of perfectly edible food to me, so I thought of an alternative for completing the spell. 

instead of smashing the egg, cook it up and eat it.

when you cook the egg, you’re already destroying its original form on a chemical and physical level–you’re changing its physical state. and a raw egg on its own can be dangerous; we all know about salmonella and I’m sure there’s other similar risks. so by cooking the egg, you’re taking something potentially dangerous and making it safer. Heat and fire are also destroying agents in magic, so the heat of the frying pan alone could symbolically destroy the negative energies you transferred to the egg.

now, I know it might seem counterproductive to eat something that you transferred bad energy into. I mean, that would just return it to you, right? well, since you’ve cooked the egg, you’ve already destroyed all that. 

however, I view the act of eating/consuming to be one of the ultimate forms of subjugation. I mean, whether you eat meat or not, you have to consume another living entity to survive, and humans are the species that dominates the globe. 

so to me, eating the egg would be a huge reinforcement of the destruction part, because not only have you destroyed your enemy, you’re now eating it and enjoying it. You have fully subjugated the negativity in your life; you are the master of your fate.

so when you do the egg spell, cook that sucker up with some appropriate herbs and enjoy yourself a nice meal.
