i now have a phrase for that

I used to sit on the banks with a raft and watch the water roll lazily by. One day I pushed my raft into the shallows of the water and found the water moved swifter than I thought. My raft was actually a boat. Then, after some time, I rowed my little boat into deeper water. There were great storms, mighty winds, tremendous waves, and sometimes I felt so alone. But I have noticed my little rowboat is now a mighty ship manned by my friends and loved ones; and beautiful calm seas, warm sunny days, and nights filled with comfortable dreams always double after a storm. Now, I could never go back and sit on the bank. In fact, I search for deeper water. Such is life when lived.

anonymous asked:

How can you say that trans women have female bodies? I don't understand. If they do then isn't the phrase mtf meaningless?

well… “mtf” is kinda outdated imo. it implies that trans women are only women when they surgically transition, and that’s just not true? it’s not like cis men can surgically transition and suddenly be trans women because trans women are already women before any surgery or HRT. 

and besides, “female” is now commonly used to refer to women as an adjective outside of discussions about genitals (i.e. “the female author” vs. “the author that is a woman”). if your definition of female doesn’t include trans women, it includes trans men, which is just plain inaccurate. 

anonymous asked:

wow when did you become bilingual... amazing

I became bilingual the second I set foot in The Netherlands meaning I’m struggling hard and I have to look up every other word and the only phrases I say out loud are “dank u wel” and “ooohhhh… aantrekkelijk” and “ik ben moe” lmao I feel like it would be fun to actually learn Dutch for real especially if I ever come back but for now I am just strugglin to seem like I know what’s going on

berserk-al  asked:

I would like to see Victor with some improvised bodies before he magnet pulls metal particles to form a copy of his old body or whatever will happen to make him fully come back. It must be very easy finding some random android body in Cali in the Marvel universe (even an old Iron Man armor could do). Nico could cast the "Run in Compatibility Mode" spell and the head and body would work together... Wait, San Francisco Bay must be full of sunk Sentinels. Imagine giant robot with normal Vic head.

Okay, the possibilities are endless! I’m excited to see wait they do as far as Victor, although this panel:

Suggest he may have rebooted back to his “Victorious Settings” (better phrase?). 

But now, I would really like to see small Victor head on a Sentinel body, or an Iron Man body. That’d be awesome.

There are, like, five different people right now who I want to say, “I love you,” to. All five of those “I love you”s would mean something completely different, and only one of them is even only partially romantic in nature.

I’m in love with all of these people.

I’ve fallen in love with lol of these people.

And four of those five are people who I am not romantically attracted to.

These phrases don’t need to have romantic connotations. And the way that arospec people use these terms often doesn’t include romantic connotations or attraction.

We’re useing the language that’s available to us to be understood. Until such a time as we have better language (that doesn’t end up severely mocked to the point where we’re pretty much forced to abandon it), this is what we have.

If you don’t want us to be able to talk about our experiences with our own language, at least let us talk about our experiences, like, at all. And stop interrogating us on it.

Did I ever tell yall about the time I had a really vivid dream that I overheard some dudebros talking about sucking dick and one of them said “I’d suck a dick” and his bros were like “but bro you’re straight” and the response was “It doesn’t have to be a guy’s dick. Don’t be a transphobe, Chad” because I just remembered the phrase “Don’t be a transphobe, Chad” and now I’m laughing

i love the fact that there are just some phrases that have transcended homestuck and are now just a part of ordinary internet slang.

like god tier? where did you think you got that from? your hubris will be your undoing

Your friendly neighborhood Owl Mom stayed up all night deciphering audio tracks.

Here’s the breakdown of the audio in Don’t remember.

0:03-0:04: A voice says, “I hate you”. This isn’t just part of the static. When noise reduction is used on the audio clip, the static is removed, but the phrase remains untouched.

0:10-0:16: A voice says, “Do you remember what I said to you?”

0:18-0:20: A voice says, “I saved you.”

0:21-0:27: A voice says, “We were going to do great things together.”

After this, the music starts picking up. (The music will be addressed in a minute, I promise.) Because the voices are distorted, it is basically impossible to isolate the vocals. This means that the words are partially indecipherable, so we have to use a bit of guesswork. 

There are two distinct snippets.

0:32-0:34: A voice murmurs a phrase that ends in “for this”. The piano drowns out the beginning of the phrase. From listening to it repeatedly and reducing some of the noise from the static, my best guess is, “No one asked for this.”

0:36-039: This one is the trickiest of them all. It’s almost entirely covered by the crescendo of the music, and it’s much slower than the other phrases. Again, from listening to it a bunch and doing the best noise reduction I could, my best guess is, “Are you sure about that?”

0:41-0:44: A voice says, “Go back to sleep.”

That phrase marks the end of the voice lines in this video. Now, let’s talk about the music.

The music seems to be what’s bugging everyone the most, because it’s not the music from Who Killed Markiplier, but people in the tag swear that they recognize it from somewhere. It just sounds so familiar.

That’s because, sike, it is the music from Who Killed Markiplier! It’s just heavily distorted. (I only got this one because I learned this song on the piano, despite the fact that I have not taken piano lessons since I was eight and can’t read sheet music to save my life. I had to practice a hundred times to make sure it stuck.)

The music in the video goes from 0:28-0:42.

The easiest way to tell that it’s the same song is to compare the four notes from 0:38-0:39 at half speed to the four notes at 1:46 in the song itself (”Who’s There 2″, alternatively titled “By Lake Surprise”, by Peter Sandberg.). The entire musical sequence matches up, but that’s the most clear section if you don’t know the song very well. 

It’s the same song, but in Don’t remember, it’s distorted and increases in both pitch and speed every four beats.

All of this put together gives us some pretty interesting pieces of information– the main one being that we have a direct link to Who Killed Markiplier in this video. 

And hey, take this with a grain of salt, but here’s an idle thought: don’t those lines of dialogue almost sound like disjointed snippets of an argument between two people? And don’t we happen to know two people who were destroyed in order to make Dark, one of which used her abilities to save the other, and one who frequently talked about the great things he was going to accomplish with his associates while running the city?

But hey, that’s just a thought. 

Anyway, I’d love to hang out and think more thoughts with you guys, but I’m incredibly late for my class. And that’s kind of problematic, because I’m teaching it.

Think some thoughts for me while I’m gone, yeah?

NAMJOON FINALLY REVEALS WHAT ‘RM’ STANDS FOR NOW:

Q. RM, you mentioned your name change. What does RM mean to you?

RM: [Rap Monster] came from a song that I made from like, 2012, there was some phrase like Rap Monster, and I just, I thought it was so cool. But as I grow up, and as I came to America, I think it felt like too much. So I just abbreviated it to RM, and it could symbolize many things. It could have more spectrums to it. I don’t know [what it means], like “Real Me” or something.

Are You A Koreaboo?

I have a lot of thoughts on this subject.

So, yes- Koreaboos are a thing. They exist, and they can be annoying, but whatever. Do your thing. Hopefully they grow out of it though. This post will not be about all of the annoying things that Koreaboos tend to do. Instead, this post will be about how to differentiate between someone who is a Koreaboo, and someone who is not. Because apparently, there is a lot of confusion surrounding this topic. 

Some things commonly used to identify Koreaboos are-

  1. They listen to K-Pop
  2. They watch K-Dramas
  3. They write fanfiction (about people associated with the previous two)
  4. Learning Korean

None of those things indicate a Koreaboo. Someone liking K-Pop just means they like music, regardless of the language. Someone liking K-Dramas just means they like a TV show that they need subtitles for. Writing fanfiction is something a lot of people do if they like a certain celebrity, and why would that change just because the person is of a different race? Also, it’s a good way to improve a person’s writing skills in a way they can enjoy. Learning Korean is probably the worst reason to label someone as a Koreaboo, because it’s a language. People are typically required to learn a foreign language in high school, and for a lot of schools, the options are limited to Spanish or French. So, it’s totally understandable as to why you might want to learn something other than those two. Besides, there’s nothing wrong with challenging yourself to learn a new language, and it looks good on applications, especially since it’s less common for people to know Korean as a second, (third, fourth, etc), language than it would be for Spanish or French. In short, having an interest in something that happens to be Korean does not make you a Koreaboo.

So what does make someone a Koreaboo?

The short and general answer would be OBESSION. However, fangirling does not qualify, because it’s likely that someone would fangirl over any celebrity they like, not just Korean ones. Let’s just jump right into this and list a few things that make a person a Koreaboo-

  • They act like they know everything about Korea
  • They try to look Korean
  • They try to ‘act’ Korean
  • They get overly excited about everything remotely related to Korea 
  • Only listen to Korean music (+ brag about it)
  • Are only attracted to Asians
  • If they find someone attractive only because they are Asian (not even necessarily Korean, because they don’t care about the difference)
  • Only eat Korean foods and get upset if they can’t
  • If they lie and say they are Korean or that they lived in Korea
  • Only use common Korean phrases, and use them often (ex. 안녕하세요, 진짜, 누나, 오빠, 언니, etc), usually with horrible pronunciation, and use romanization when writing/typing them (this one is more of just an annoying habit people may have, because no one has a problem with the random use of Spanish words like hola or adios)

There are plenty of other things a lot of Koreaboos do, and not all of them do ALL of these things. I’ve just listed some common indicators. Now, this post is already rather lengthy, (I could go on and on), so I’ll state the main difference in bold text.

The difference between someone who is a Koreaboo and someone who isn’t is:

Having an interest in something that happens to be Korean vs. Having an interest in something because it is Korean.

This post is not meant to shame anyone, and PLEASE feel free to explore your interests without fear of judgement, because you have that right. And if something makes you happy, just tell that annoying ranting girl on Tumblr to fuck off, and go be yourself. Just maybe take it down a few notches, because you low key seem a little crazy sometimes. Also, if you are interested in something that happens to be Korean and you want to try something else from there (like kimchi or  비빔밥) GO AHEAD. I only made this post, because so many people accuse others of being Koreaboos with literally zero backup for their claim. So, think before you label, or just keep your judgey mouth shut, thanks.

【Non-No Magazine January 2018】 100 answers from BTS - JIMIN’s part

Q43: What’s your favorite season? 
A: I like the feeling of winter. My hometown Busan doesn’t really snow. When I was around 6 or 7 years old, there was an unusual heavy snowfall, I looked out of the window and it was completely white, it was so impressive. Playing outside with my family and friends was a good memory too. 

Q44: What do you want the most right now? 
A: The time to travel. I want to go to Japan first! I heard that Halloween in Japan is very popular, I want to participate and dress up in a perfect costume that no one would recognize me. 

Q45: What subject were you best at during your school days? 
A: P.E, Art, Science and Mathematics. I really liked ball sports in the past. 

Q46: What would you do to manage your body figure? 
A: Depending on different period, I would change the amount of food that I eat. I don’t really work out though. When I take off my clothes, I feel that I got really thin. So sad… (laughs). 

Q47: Your favorite street in Korea?
A: Gangnam. The place where I met the members when I went to Seoul from my hometown. It’s also a place where I could play bowling or snooker with my friends. As expected, it has got to be Gangnam! 

Q48: Fashion item that you want to wear this winter? 
A: I was planning to buy something later and then decide my winter fashion. Hopefully you guys can see me in cool coats or cute knitwear.

A: After I finished recording a variety show, I lied down and fell asleep as soon as I got home (laughs). 

Q50: What did you dream of last night?
A: I was still recording the show in my dream (laughs). If I could pick a dream, I want to fly in the sky! 

Q51: Recently, is there any incident that made you laugh out loud? 
A: I would burst out laughing when I hear Jin hyung say useless things. It was so useless, it’s a shame that I don’t remember what he said (laughs). 

Q52: What hairstyle do you want to try?
A: An impactful style… I don’t know if it would suit me or not, like all combed-back style.

Q53: If you had a time machine, what do you want to do? 
A: In the past, I’d want to fix the past or it would be fun to go to the future and take a peek at my future-self. But now, I don’t want to go anywhere, because I don’t want to miss the things in front of me at the time. The feeling of wanting to live every moment fully became stronger.

Q54: Favorite word/ phrase? 
A: ‘Thank you’, I think these 2 words are full of vitality when you say it. 

Q55: Thoughts on the 2017 Japan tour? 
A: It’s a tour that once again made me feel that having concerts are fun! As we’re getting closer to the latter half of the tour, my gratitude towards the members got stronger, it’s also a chance to review myself again. 

Q56: The moment that you think a member is really handsome/ cool? 
A: Hoseok hyung’s dance is so amazing! Especially, his performance in 'Mic Drop’ (which will also be included in the 8th Japanese single that will be released in December) is very cool. It’s a must-watch.

Long Live Octopus Pie

Three cheers!

I check the webpage out of habit, but Meredith Gran’s comic work Octopus Pie is over.  I feel like this is how sports fans feel when a jersey is retired and lifted to the rafters, forever in its untouchable place, time divided between when it was active and whatever comes after.  

That might sound grandiose, but in my mind, nothing tops the ten year run of Octopus Pie.  And in the lifespan of what we call Webcomics, 2007-2017 is a granddaddy of a run, worthy of names like “pioneering,” “influential” and “groundbreaking” because in the space of those years, in this new medium, there was room to be those things without any hyperbole.  The comics landscape of the past decade needed filling out and Meredith carved her space out with precision, showing a polish and drive and a talent from the beginning that set a high standard.  

I’m guessing that I started Hark a Vagrant about six months after Octopus Pie began, but Meredith’s was already a name to be reckoned with, due to the solid reputation of her previous comic Skirting Danger and because she was an honest to god trained animator in a sea of stickmen comics or two-dudes-on-a-couch comics (RIP forever *kisses fingers, holds them to the sky*). I was intimidated by her sheer capability.  But inspired too.  I did not need to be intimidated, she was one of the first people I met in comics, and easily one of the best.

Meredith and I briefly shared an apartment and a studio, and I can tell you, she can draw circles around everyone you know.  I later shared a studio with Mike Holmes, who could also draw circles around everyone, and now the two of them are married in some sort of talent supernova.  I am happy for them, even though I feel like I make grade three crayon pictures next to them.  But the other thing that being friends with Meredith for a long time has shown is the cutting wit, the care for stories done right, the love for a medium that will take you through highs and lows that come with comics, and lately through her job as a comics professor, the nurturing of upcoming talent.  I see all of this in Octopus Pie, a comic where character was paramount, where plots were expertly moved, a fine balance was found between the messiness of people and the fun you can have with stories, where subtle emotional movements where rendered with room to breathe, where I felt like I could reach deep into the hearts and minds of the characters on the page because they had been fleshed out so well over the years that they seemed as real people, people that I loved.

I don’t really like that phrase “comics will break your heart,” commonly attributed to Schultz, or Kirby, it doesn’t really matter.  You see it all the time, mostly when people are reckoning with the fact that they work in an unforgiving medium.  I don’t even know what it is about the saying that I don’t like.  Maybe it’s because we all know that comics are hard work, we all know that you might put your life and blood and heart into something and you might get nothing back.  There are no surprises to be found there - it’s not a bad day you had, it’s a life you’re well aware of living, if you do.  But we love the perserverers in comics.  The people who live the phrase are the ones who inspire us the most.

I’m saying all this, and pardon the segue, because I have seen Octopus Pie, some of the finest story work of my generation, passed for recognition time and again and it confuses the hell out of me, truly.  I don’t want to turn a tribute to a work I hold dear into sour grapes, that’s not the intention here, but lord above, if I can’t point this out now, then when can I?  We all know that there are no guarantees in this life (comics will break your heart) but I’ll say this once and then leave it: this is a comic of quality that was miles ahead of so many of its peers, and it deserved better, industry wise.  To wrap up the earlier point, maybe I don’t like CWBYH because it implies that you should shrug your shoulders and not ask for better every time, that a short end of some kind of stick is expected even.  That’s easy when it’s yourself, but speaking as a fan now, I say to heck with shrugging, I want to put Meredith on my shoulders and parade her around and dump her into a Scrooge McDuck thing full of awards.  

Actually that sounds pointy and bad and the Ignatz awards are bricks to begin with so maybe forget that analogy but you get the idea.

I hope you read Octopus Pie, I hope you buy the books.  I hope the legacy of it is long and full, because it always will be for me.  And I think readers will agree, because I know this devoted fan base pretty well.  I read the comments, I’ve sat next to Mer at comic shows, I’ve listened to some of the emails that touched her.  I know this is a comic that meant a lot, to a lot of us.  In this world of work we put our hearts and souls into to begin with, that is a wonderfully worthy thing.

I do not know what Meredith will do next, but whatever it is, I am here for it, seat pulled close to the stage.  The retired jersey is in the rafters, the game is still being played by the people who dreamed better because it was there.  Aw what can I say, I’m sentimental!

 Thanks, Meredith. <3

How to unit Castiel and the Winchesters

Spn writers: Okay, I think we made clear that Dean hit rock bottom, right guys? So now, Sam and Dean are in the Impala. Both of them are visible.

Spn writers: Then Cas calls Dean. What a coincidence he calls Dean. Could have been Sam as well.

Spn writers: He could use his catch phrase. Hello Dean. That could work pretty well.

Spn writers: Do you think we have to actually say it?

Spn writers: Nah, they’ll know… But don’t forget the close up on Dean’s face!

Spn writers: Good, Sam and Dean are driving to get Cas. Who is still right beside the phone cell. Weird. As if he had nothing better to do than get back to Dean. Oh and Sam of course! Sam is very important in that reunion which is why we are pointing that out constantly.

Spn writers: When they see each other, we don’t want them to act on in right away. We could let them stare at each other. Don’t think we have done that before.

Spn writers: And some close ups again. Maybe one of Dean, one of Cas, one of Dean, one of Cas, one of Dean, …

Spn writers: Aaaannd The End. Great work guys!

Someone from a dark corner: But what about Sam? Wasn’t he right beside Dean?

Spn writers:

Spn writers:

Spn writers: Well, I think Sam importance is already obvious. Besides, Dean and Cas do share a more profound bond.

Spn writers: #nohomo

Reputation Shouldn’t Be Taken Literally. But It’s Also True.

Every song on Rep so far is a mix of truth and drama. 

1. Look What You Made Me Do

No wonder we were completely confused when this song came out. On one hand, we thought it was about Kim and Kanye, but also maybe Katy. But then, as many people have noted, it could also be about how the way the media treats her. 

Her truth:

Any of those theories could be true because the song is about all of it. The song is her “re-birth”. She pulls a phoenix rising from the ashes:

“Honey, I rose up from the dead I do it all the time”

This is her truth. She got smarter and got harder from all of the drama and publicity she’s received over the past few years. But then…

Her Reputation:

She plays the mean girl. 

“I’ve got a list of names and yours is in red underlined”

Taylor Swift has better things to do than sit around and write down a list of people she wants to get revenge on. But also, if that did exist, I don’t think she’d really want to admit it. 

“The world moves on, another day, another drama-drama.
But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma.” 

Again, people do genuinely believe she never moves on from drama and actually manufactures it so she can sell it in her music. 

“Look what you made me do”

She strategically makes the song about what other people did to her, not how she got herself into this mess. Essentially portraying her as girl who people say is always playing the victim.


2. …Ready For It?

Her truth:

This song is fascinating because it tells the story of meeting a guy for the first time and knowing that, going in, there are a lot of things that could cause problems. 

“Wonder how many girls he had loved and left haunted”

“Stealing hearts and running off and never saying sorry”

The song captures, in its rap-sung verses, the intensity of a relationship just beginning. The questions, the curiosity and also each person’s reputation. However, this is probably her most interesting truth: 

“Touch me and you’ll never be alone”

This is a fantastic lyric because it shows us the chaos of starting a high-profile relationship. Especially if you’re dating one of the world’s most renowned songwriters. 

Her Reputation:

We start out, right from the get-go with images of thieves and robbers. 

“Me, I was a robber first time that he saw me”

Now, this is exactly the line that sticks out to me because she’s directly addressing her reputation. She’s essentially saying that the man in question probably saw her as a man-eater (an insult she’s often associated with)

“Let the games begin.”

Taylor is seen as a girl who dates for fun. Always on to the next guy. Playing games with people’s hearts so she can write another song about it. 


2. Gorgeous

Her truth:

There’s a very clear story here. It should be fairly obvious at this point. From the Sunset and Vine reference to this pretty defining lyric: 

“And I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us”

Or this iconic line that describes my flirting strategy: 

“That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk”

Not even to mention going home to her cats. 

Her Reputation:

I’ve heard people say this song can’t be satire, camp or a character because it’s “about Joe”. That’s ridiculous. Truth and satire can exist in the same song. We should know this well from Blank Space. 

And I mean, c’mon

“You’ve ruined my life by not being mine”. 

The media likes to think of her as a control freak, right? Manipulative and always looking for another man to date, she plays into this reputation perfectly. 

“I feel like I might sink and drown and die” 

Her phrasing should clear up any doubt here. Not to mention she’s probably drunk while she’s thinking this. This line is a comment on the public perception of how dramatic she is. It’s no secret that she sometimes seems to overdramatize the real-life events of her songs. 

Now, THE ALBUM COVER BRINGS IT TOGETHER

There have honestly been great interpretations of this and I think they’re all pretty much true. But also, think about the songs in relation to the editing here. 

The album exists halfway between the real her and the media’s perception of her, just as every song has demonstrated so far. It’s a fascinating trick for anyone who wants to take these songs as fully the truth or fully satire because neither is right. 

So no, we can’t take these songs literally. 

But yes, we can take parts of them seriously. 

Why? Because there’s always a little truth to our reputation. 


Please reblog and send me your thoughts! 

When I started to hear about reputation being even better than Red (aka my first born child), not to mention all of her other albums (*cough Speak Now cough*), I have to admit I was a little skeptical. I know I will always love Taylor’s new music, but could something actually be better than all of these other amazing albums?????

The answer is simple. YES. You guys…. reputation is going to knock your socks off. Honestly, I don’t know why that’s the phrase I chose to use, but please bear with me. BECAUSE ITS TRUE.

The album is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE. Every time Taylor pressed play on a new song, my heart was pounding out of my chest. During the songs I experienced so many different emotions and by the time the song was over, all I wanted to do was listen to it again. And again and again and again and again…. and again.

Taylor, you really have outdone yourself with this one. And thankfully each day that passes brings everyone closer to finally listening to this masterpiece!!!!!! I CANT WAIT!

Today on “People Are Assholes”:

Today I spoke with and comforted a friend who’s partner broke up with them because they found out she was bisexual.

“If you can’t even commit to one gender, how can you commit to one person?” Was the phrasing they were given.

What. The. Fuck.

I’m sorry, but if you share that opinion, then you can go ahead and un-follow me right now. Being bisexual doesn’t mean that you have a commitment problem. That’s like breaking up with someone who says they find both blondes and brunettes attractive.

“Well, since I’m a blonde and you like both blondes AND brunettes, I can’t be with you because you’re just going to cheat on me with a brunette”.

Yeah, see how ridiculous that sounds? Same concept. Hubs and I have been together over five years and I’ve never once said “Hmm, well, I’ve been with him the allotted amount, time to sleep with a woman again”.

Lets get something straight (haha): Bisexual people aren’t any more likely to cheat on you than anyone else. It’s insulting, offensive and downright hateful to suggest that someone is more or less likely to cheat because of their sexuality. Fuck off.
