i mean to rule this world

i think a big thing that disconcerts adults about learning new skills is that learning as an adult means you are very aware of how bad you are at the beginning in a way children aren’t.

i picked up the saxophone when i was 11 and played until i was about 17. by the end of it i was first chair in our highest ensemble, a district honor band player, etc. but at the beginning – and this is important – i was bad. for the first year or so, i had no rhythm, i couldn’t make my tongue line up with my fingers, i was consistently sharp, etc. etc. other kids actually made fun of me for my lack of skill.

but 11 year old me didn’t care. 11 year old me practiced, but she also thought that being able to play the pink panther made her incredible (i shudder in retrospect). i mean, i was aware i wasn’t a master, but my skill level didn’t deter me from wailing out those notes in a way that i’m sure had my band director questioning his career decisions.

right now, i’m trying to pick up the guitar. it’s a very different instrument from the saxophone, and i struggle a lot with things like strumming patterns and barre chords. and sometimes i don’t want to play, because i know i’m bad at guitar. and sometimes i beat myself up when stumbling through a poor acoustic rendition of Everybody Wants to Rule the World because it’s not how i want it to sound. and it’s made even more frustrating because i can navigate the saxophone so smoothly.

but then i remember that i have to think like a kid. i might not be the best at guitar by any stretch of the imagination, but every little bit of progress is still progress. humility is a big part of learning, but if you treat a practice session like your own private concert, it becomes so much more fun, even if you’re bad like i am.  when you’re first picking up a skill, whether it be an instrument, or a language, or a fine art, no one is expecting you to be the yo yo ma of that thing. forget about how little you know about the skill and think instead about how much you have to learn – that’s fun! do your best!!

The great British Brexit robbery: how our democracy was hijacked
A shadowy operation involving big data, billionaire friends of Trump and the disparate forces of the Leave campaign heavily influenced the result of the EU referendum. Is our electoral process still fit for purpose?
By Carole Cadwalladr

Okay.

It took me days to get time together to read this whole thing, but I have finally done it.

This is it. This is the one article you need to read to understand just what is going on in Britain, America, and Russia.

This is the one piece of writing you need and can use to reference the very chilling reality that these countries have been tied together in the machinations  of just a few billionaires, and how Facebook and Google tie in insidiouslyi.

I keep telling y’all to stop fucking with facebook but that’s moot now. It’s so much bigger than this.

“Was that really what you called it, I ask him. Psychological warfare? “Totally. That’s what it is. Psyops. Psychological operations – the same methods the military use to effect mass sentiment change. It’s what they mean by winning ‘hearts and minds’. We were just doing it to win elections in the kind of developing countries that don’t have many rules.”Why would anyone want to intern with a psychological warfare firm, I ask him. And he looks at me like I am mad. “It was like working for MI6. Only it’s MI6 for hire. It was very posh, very English, run by an old Etonian and you got to do some really cool things. Fly all over the world. You were working with the president of Kenya or Ghana or wherever. It’s not like election campaigns in the west. You got to do all sorts of crazy shit.”“

This is not just a story about social psychology and data analytics.

 It has to be understood in terms of a military contractor using military strategies on a civilian population. 

Us. David Miller, a professor of sociology at Bath University and an authority in psyops and propaganda, says it is “an extraordinary scandal that this should be anywhere near a democracy. It should be clear to voters where information is coming from, and if it’s not transparent or open where it’s coming from, it raises the question of whether we are actually living in a democracy or not.”

“And it was Facebook that made it possible. It was from Facebook that Cambridge Analytica obtained its vast dataset in the first place. Earlier, psychologists at Cambridge University harvested Facebook data (legally) for research purposes and published pioneering peer-reviewed work about determining personality traits, political partisanship, sexuality and much more from people’s Facebook “likes”. And SCL/Cambridge Analytica contracted a scientist at the university, Dr Aleksandr Kogan, to harvest new Facebook data. And he did so by paying people to take a personality quiz which also allowed not just their own Facebook profiles to be harvested, but also those of their friends – a process then allowed by the social network.”

Read this. Read the entire thing. It will take you a while and it’s a lot to digest but you need to know.

Signal boost.

@sunderlorn we’re finally completely united in propaganda, isn’t that nice!?

Writing Science Fiction: Tips for Beginners

We’ve seen a lot of science fiction stories over the past year or so. It’s not like they sci-fi ever went out of style, but it seems to be gaining popularity recently.

For some, writing science fiction might seem like a daunting genre to break into. Do you need to know complex mathematical equations? Do you need to know exactly how space travel works? Did you need to major in astrophysics?

Sure, those things don’t hurt, but they’re absolutely not necessary. You can write a great sci-fi novel without years of research. And you can tell a really interesting story, even if you’re not a science pro.

Here are a few tips to get started:

Consider ‘What-if’ Scenarios

This isn’t just a great rule for sci-fi novels, but I think the best ones use this approach. Start off with a simple what-if scenario. For example: what if we lived on a world made of ice? What if in this particular world only consisted of women? Obviously, you’ll need to expand on those scenarios and spend time really developing what those caveats would mean, but you get the idea.

Start with a small what-if scenario and brainstorm!

Figure Out Your Rules

I don’t think writing great sci-fi depends on being 100% scientifically accurate ALL THE TIME, but I do think you need to stick to your own rules. Whatever is a hard rule for your own universe, it’s important to keep it that way. Does your world have ships that can travel quickly from planet to planet? Sure, that’s great! Figure out your own rules for space travel and develop your world. How do the inhabitants on one planet act/grow/eat/interact compared to the inhabitants of another? Spend time developing these ideas!

No Info Dumps!

Sometimes when people write science fiction, they tend to explain their universe all in one big info-dump. Don’t. This is boring and it does nothing to serve your story. Slowly reveal information. Every plot point in your story should serve a purpose. Develop your characters through the action and show off your worlds through them. Get creative.

Keep it Vague

If you’re unsure about the science of something, write to your strengths. Don’t understand how space travel works? Maybe your MC is put to sleep during a long trip. This is just one example, but try to figure out a way to make it work for you. Maybe avoid space travel altogether if it doesn’t serve your story.

Listen, this isn’t a substitute for research, but I also don’t want you to avoid writing science fiction if you just don’t get a lot of the concepts involved. If you’ve got a great idea for a story, work it out to fit your style. Science fiction is a great platform for unique and compelling character studies, so don’t get scared off! You don’t have to write hard science fiction in order to write a good novel.

Loose thoughts by Jayalvarrez

I’m usually pretty closed off to sharing any thoughts or feelings but whatever, fuck it maybe I can make someone feel something, these are just thoughts and feelings of MY opinions that I pulled from my list of notes scribbled down in different moments.. I’ve always said it before I barely show 5% of who I really am on social media.. Thank you to everyone who supports me.. I couldn’t live my life like this without you.

Confidence

Confidence is natural, arrogance is forced.

Never think your to smart that you can’t still be the student, wisest people die still learning and improving.

Focus on your own ideas and directions, don’t let others & your mentors tell you everything and influence everything because even the most helping hand has biased ideas and thoughts

Trust your past self on ideas and thoughts it’s the same person you got you to where you are in this moment

You have to believe yourself and convenice your self to feel powerful about what you say, hearing your own voice has a certain ring to it like no one else’s.

Use yourself for everything you are, you truly are amazing and unqiue be loud about it but be humble & do with love.
You are undefinable, You have no single label or group you belong to.. and your mind isn’t even slightly opened yet.

Being honest with yourself saves you in the long run always.

Never be insecure of your creativity.

Don’t live a life based only around how you look, Spending time on your mind and soul is everything..
Determining your self worth off your looks will leave you empty & with short burst of satisfaction.

Remember where you started from and where you are going, You use to dream of the things you have now.. even though this life style becomes casual never forget what got you to this exact moment.


Girls & Sex

My brain is built more like a female than a males, It’s giving me an emotional reach to deeply understand and open up to any feelings or thoughts of any human being. Being soft & loving is being strong.

If she doesn’t want it as much as or more then me I have no interest, sex is mental and eye contact can give you more then anything, giving love is more then expecting all the other persons attention and actions , unless it’s feeding the soul, passionate with a twisted mind it’s a waste of time.. treat every touch on her body like it’s art. 15 second feelings are nice but a feeling in your mind for hours after is even better.


Gorgeous girls and body’s are easy, gorgeous minds and souls are hard. A girl with a beautiful body doesn’t always make for a beautiful girl.

Remember there’s always far better things ahead then anything left behind.

Being sweet & loving to girls will never not be cool, but regardless of gender actions get reactions.

Energy is EVERYTHING.

Never worry about a good looking guy stealing your girl you better worry about that guy who emotionally gets your girl more & makes your girl laugh more 😉.

Getting under a girls skin with just my eyes and words as a connection makes it taste so much better (literally) than relying on physical looks or surface substance to entertain my mind.

I think few people are really built for relationships, I think technology will save us all.

It doesn’t matter how it looks and feels to anyone else it’s how it looks and feels to us.

Don’t let chasing pussy control your life or distract your big plan.

Being physically beautiful is nice but let it be nothing more then the gates to the soul.


Human Relations

i’ve got more personalities then the people i’ve met all together in my entire life combined, I don’t expect people to understand me, more likely expect them to judge me then to ever care to think past clueless first thoughts.

Take everyone with a grain of salt and a open mind, people don’t come with directions.

Peoples opinion of you is their truth, it’s not necessarily your truth or could be even close with to right at all.

The way you talk about the people you hate is a transparency of your own self esteem.

Don’t worry about trusting people, just don’t trust their emotions. Most people can’t understand them self how could they truly trust and understand you, & that’s fine.

Study psychology and history it will give you understanding and every answer you need, the world evolves but human emotions never will, people really aren’t that complex at base.

Don’t fight back into negativity and childishness insecurity, it only makes things worst.

If you want to hurt someone do it mentally, actions are short lived.

If you constantly blame other people for your problems take a look in your own soul.

make peace with your past so it doesn’t ruin your future

Standing up for someone who can’t stand up for them self is the coolest thing you can ever do.

To truly love someone is accepting someone for every thing they come as.

World & thoughts


Language is a forum of communication not always a measure of intelligence, At times I’ve had deeper conversations with just my eyes and touch then I have with words. You could be the most understanding person on the verbal side, but without a emotional understanding you may never be able to communicate with some people.

You don’t need to be any skin tone or ethnicity to practice and enjoy any cultural feelings, every human on this planet bleeds the same blood chances are you ain’t that special.

your not meant to be accepted or fit in, if you were you’d probably not of left that old life.

You can’t blame any one person or culture for anything, this planet is more diverse then you could ever process, Don’t get mad at a person for believing or acting a certain way even if it seems wrong or foolish in your eyes.

Being a good person won’t always benefit you, but there’s some emotional satisfaction in helping others.

You can’t fight science wether you like it or not, it holds the answers to all your fears and to all your questions, It’s a depressing beautiful thing.

Just because the Mass of people believe something is right or wrong doesn’t mean it’s either right or wrong, Most people go off emotions not logic, 1st world go figure.

I feel most alive in moments I don’t feel human. It’s all I really care to live for at times, these split seconds that my mind gives me these chemicals is all I crave at times.

ART HAS NO MASTER OR CRITIC JUST DIFFERENT OPINIONS.


I stand by no perfection and i’m a complete psychopath, I’ve been told i’m crazy outta my mind but attest it keeps me from going insane.. Anything said above can change in the moment & a mind with rules & barriers is limited, a wise & witty mind is what I work towards 😉 I'f any words can make you feel or relate it was worth me sharing! If I annoy and get under your skin for being..well just who I am.. I hope it hurts 👁

Love - @jayalvarrez

i.

She walks into English fifteen minutes late, wearing both a deeply unflattering smock and a scowl. Neither are an especially new look on her.

“Vector,” she says under her breath, as an answer to Mary McDonald’s unspoken question. It’s the answer to every question in the room. Ms Vector is notorious among them all for her very strict adherence to the school’s dress code.

“Yes, Miss Evans’ entrance was very exciting, but I’ll have your attention back to the lesson now, please,” says Ms McGonagall. James snaps back to attention. It’s for the best.

ii.

“Here,” James says, shrugging off his jacket and thrusting it toward Lily. She gives him this look like, fuck off, and James has to bite his tongue to stop from aggravating her. “They’re doing uniform checks up the hall. Just put it on.”

Evans gives him a very strange look, and it takes him a second to realise that it’s neutral.

She looks good in his jacket.

iii. 

Every third dress code violation results in a lunch time detention. It’s only October, and Lily’s already had six. She doesn’t look at James as she takes the seat three ahead and one to the left of him.

iv.

There’s a thump from somewhere in the back of the classroom, and McGonagall isn’t planning on looking up - it sounds like it came from the general vicinity of Potter and Black, and that’s certainly not a situation she wants to engage with - but the entire class is already turned around to see what the fuss is.

She strides down the aisle between the desks, and is about three years past surprised to find James Potter lying on the floor, gazing at the ceiling, glasses knocked aside.

“Am I boring you so much that you decided to take a nap?” she asks, and James gives this wicked smile, and here we go–

“Sorry, Miss, I can’t get up. It’s Evans’ shoulders - they’re overwhelming me. I simply can’t do anything until she covers them up. Sirius, tell me when it’s safe.”

He’s a funny boy, she’ll give him that. “Potter, get up. This is hardly the time for foolishness.”

how can I glo up

Rule #1: CONFIDENCE
That is the key. How are you gonna be a bad bitch if you’re not sure that you’re a bad bitch. Believe that you’re the baddest and people will notice that you’re the baddest. Don’t believe in yourself and people will take note of that.

Rule #2: TAKE CARE OF YOU
Drink plenty of water and stay healthy. Don’t skip meals and try not to over indulge. Eat clean in order to get clear skin. Got homework? Do it. Got bills to pay? Pay em. Take care of yourself before you worry about anyone else.

Rule #3: LOOK YOUR BEST
Whenever you go out, try to look your best. This doesn’t mean that you have to always dress the best and be all high maintenance. Hell, if you wanna go out in sweats then do it. You need to carry yourself in a positive light. Walk with proper posture and try not to slouch. Trust me that makes a world of difference on how people will see you.

These are all I have for now. I hope these help!

Two Beers and the Truth

An extremely late birthday fic for @wrathofthestag, who shares my hopes for Coach and Bitty. Here’s a little fic about how I hope the summer goes for the Bittle Clan…

         Bitty knew that coming out to coach would end one of three ways.

         The first scenario was the one that had kept him silent since middle school when he realized that it didn’t matter how many girls stole kisses from him, he just wasn’t interested. He could see Coach’s face turning to stone, the way it did when the Dawgs lost a game in overtime, and hear his father’s steely voice proclaiming I have no son. Some nights he would still wake up shaking when he thought about that scenario, if he was lucky, Jack would be there to gather him up and mutter soothing bits of nonsense into his hair as he trembled.

         The second scenario was more likely, but still not something Bitty was looking forward to. Coach would press his lips together until they disappeared behind his mustache, then nod with a resigned air. If he was lucky, Bitty would get an awkward slap on the back and Coach would mutter something Suzanne told him Oprah said to say. It would be disappointment, but acceptance. Some days Bitty wondered if that wouldn’t be worse than outright anger.

         The third scenario Bitty blamed on Chowder, who seemed to think everyone in the world would be thrilled with a gay son. In this dream setup, Coach cried, opening his arms to his son and assuring Bitty that he could never be prouder of a child. They would cry together, then, hugged up on the porch swing, talking about life and maybe boys.

         Bitty bit his lip, wondering which scenario he would be living through. He rolled his shoulder, preparing for a disappointed pat. He glanced at his mother in the kitchen.

         With a sigh, Suzanne moved to the refrigerator, picking out two beers and holding them out to Bitty. She kissed his forehead. “Go on, I’ll be doing dishes if you need me.”

         Bitty nodded and looked toward the porch again.

         “I can do this,” he muttered. “For me. For Jack.”

All About Cancer: The Crab

Basics

Cancer’s archetype is sensitive, domestic, turbulent, and intuitive. These personality aspects combine to portray the “crybaby” of the zodiac. The Crab is feeling and deeply aware of themselves and others, allowing them to take an interest in the nature of humans.

As for the facts regarding Cancer, it is the fourth astrological sign of the zodiac. The sun transits through this sign from 21st June to 22nd July, meaning that all born on or between these dates are Cancerians. The Crab is a cardinal sign, as well as a water sign, along with Scorpio and Pisces.

Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon, representing emotion, feeling, and the internal self. This leads Cancer to be a highly sensitive sign, who perceives the world by intuition as opposed to logic and reason. How and where this manifests in life varies depending on where Cancer energy is found in one’s chart.

In my descriptions, I will touch on how Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Cancer gave an influence on one’s personality.

Cancer Sun

An individual’s Sun sign is the core of their personality, how their friends would describe them to others. In short, it is the very basics of one’s character. Cancer Suns have a very strong need for human companionship and understanding, which leads a good majority of them to be highly outgoing and extroverted people. However, if they are around unfamiliar people, or people unlike them, they are likely to become more withdrawn.

Those with their Sun in Cancer have a strong lust for adventure, much like Sagittarius. Due to this, they are generally unafraid of putting themselves out there. But, if anything goes wrong in the process, these people are notorious for their sensitivity. The Crab’s willingness to go out on limbs can lead to said limbs breaking from beneath them. No matter how many times this happens, they still somehow manage to dust themselves off and ignore the past. In some ways this is a wonderful display of tenacity, but it also shows their inability to learn from past incidents.

Cancer Suns also resemble Taurus in some ways. They both share a powerful need for security in their lives. Those with their Sun in Cancer need to feel like they’ll always have a safety net to fall into when they dig themselves too deep. This can make Cancerians arrogant in the sense that they are confident that nothing can go awry, because they will always have someone to retreat to. However, when this is not the case, they often find themselves alone and occasionally in deep trouble. Cancer Suns take great pride and joy in their ability to care for and nurture those around them.

Cancer Moon

The Moon sign allows us to see within another person, to have a sort of insight into their feelings and emotional processes. While the Sun sign shows the exterior, the Moon sign shows the interior that can be uncovered after the layers are removed. With Moon as its ruling planet, Cancer is seen most authentically in those with this placement.

Those with a Cancer Moon are able to genuinely feel their feelings. They find no need to distract themselves from their emotions, and in extreme cases choose to wallow in them instead. People with their Moon in Cancer rely on their hearts to guide them throughout life, which can potentially allow for them to make highly irrational and even self-sabotaging choices. They have a very strong moral code, and will stick to it at all costs. These people are their own worst enemies.

Prone to mood swings, those with this placement often contradict themselves. One minute they will allow everyone to see them for them, and the next minute they’ll be completely emotionally unavailable. Cancer Moons are rather perceptive of the people around them, and may be at risk of becoming nosy as a result of this ability. They’re also quite good at reading their own feelings, but are certainly better at counseling others as opposed to themselves. Can be passive-aggressive if taught not to act on their emotions.

Cancer Rising/Ascendant

The Rising sign, also called the Ascendant, represents physical appearance, first impressions, and what could be interpreted as superficiality. Acquaintances or strangers may guess your Ascendant to be your Sun sign, as they only know you on the surface rather than any deeper level.

Cancer Risings tend to be very guarded individuals, and dislike flaunting whatever their true colours are for the whole world to see right off the bat. Unlike having Sun in Cancer, these people appear very introverted and prefer not to interact with the unfamiliar. Regardless of gender, many Cancer Risings have very traditionally feminine mannerisms. These people take offense to many things.

Physically, those with a Cancer Ascendant have very round features, and an overall softness to their appearance. Can come across as plain or unexpressive, but most of their expression can be found in their eyes, which tend to be quite striking in contrast to the rest of them.

Cancer Mercury

Mercury illustrates the functions of the mind, such as communication, speech, and debate. People with a Cancer Mercury aren’t particularly practical people in any sense. They often make their decisions based upon their heart rather than their head, which can occasionally not be the best choice in the long run. They are very emotionally intuitive, with both themselves and others. The speech of those with their Mercury in Cancer is very gentle on the ears, and is generally delicate yet deliberate.

Cancer Venus

Venus dictates how one behaves in love, as well as the individual’s sensual side. Cancer Venus’ tend to be highly domestic in their displays of affection. They usually enjoy expressing their love in noticeable yet simple ways, such as cooking, tidying, or having a heart-to-heart conversation. People with a Cancer Venus are generally quite willing to make themselves vulnerable in their relationships, and will certainly expect the same vulnerability out of their partner. Have a pretty hard time going through breakups.

Cancer Mars

Mars represents sexuality, impulsiveness, and anger. Those with a Cancer Mars are a perfect example of playing the victim; whether they are or not. These people are capable of twisting what has been said against them into something the other person has done wrong. In this regard, they have the potential to be manipulative in order to get the outcome they want from an argument. Because of their sensitivity, they may feel as if they are being attacked when in reality they are not. People with their Mars in Cancer are capable of forgiveness, however they will certainly never forget.

Wish list for Stranger Things 3

- Have it take place during the summer of ‘85, we’ve already had autumn and winter let’s change things up

- have the plot take longer than a week, maybe over a few weeks so that we can see the gang start high school with el and it wouldn’t be very realistic to have things wrapped up within a week

- HAVE THEM SEE BACK TO THE FUTURE OR REFERENCE IT I NEED IT I WILL BE SO PISSED IF IT DONT GET MENTIONED
LIKE I WANT A SCENE OF THEM GOING TO SEE IT

- not a wish but I saw quite a few theories that the mindflayer is watching over eleven and interestingly mike as mikes the one who comes up with the plan to burn the tunnels and the mind flayer recognises him as wills friend and elevens boyfriend so maybe as mike didn’t have too much a plot this time round due to more focus on will, max and Dustin, the turns are tabled and mikes the one that needs help?

- LEAVE WILL ALONE HES BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH and it’d be way too repetitive

- some mileven, jancy and lumax dates and scenes pls

- el with the gang and no longer needing to hide

- more crazy 80s hairstyles and fashions from the four guys please 😂😂

- I love both seasons but they do have a sort of similar plot so have this plot be more different?

- some quality bangers from '85 including
EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD- I NEED IT
POWER OF LOVE/BACK IN TIME- cmon its back to the future!
DONT YOU FORGET ABOUT ME
Who’s zoomin who- because y'know, max
TAKE ON ME

I mean as long as the songs actually came out during the time period in '85 they set it in but please please please I need the first song

- some angst between the teens because I’m trash but a happyish ending with no one dying

- Steve being the best mum

That is all

….Is there like, an active Gundam Wing community lurking on here in shadows? Like for real? Did we remain in a secret underground bunker somewhere, only to emerge blinking into the light of day in year of our lord 2017?
