Orlando Jones: The Trickster God of ‘American Gods’ on Worshipping Pop Culture, His Conflicted Take on Bill Cosby, and Why Mulder and Scully Should Bang
The actor/writer/comedian, who plays Mr. Nancy in the Neil Gaiman adaptation, reveals how nerdy he is to IndieWire.
By Liz Shannon Miller

As an adult, Jones remains a massive “fangirl” (his word), and has been famously engaged with fan culture for all the shows he’s worked on for years. “I had no idea what we were getting into there — he’s on another level,” Fuller said of Jones’s fandom. “It’s amazing.”

One of Jones’s current favorite nerd causes: He doesn’t just casually think that “X-Files” stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny should be a couple. He regularly Tweets his support for #gillovny, and has strong opinions about why the two actors should just give it up and settle down together.

“It’s going to happen,” Jones said. “They don’t understand what’s going on. David just finished touring, he and Tea [Leoni] are no longer together — which is horrible, I love Tea. They have beautiful kids. But Gillian’s beautiful, she’s sort of amazing — I don’t really understand what the problem is.”

“Here’s the thing,” he continued. “I get that they want to take a slow roll, they want to walk in the sand for a little while, they don’t want to commit too soon. But in 20 years they’re going to be on Golden Pond together if I have to break both their fucking legs and put them there.”

He then corrected himself, laughing. “I would never do that! Just to make my ‘ship come true. I would never do that… and admit to it. I had nothing to do with it.”

In real life, Jones and Duchovny are friends (they co-starred in the 2000 comedy “Evolution,” and Duchovny cast him in his 2004 coming-of-age drama “House of D”) and Anderson is one of Jones’s co-stars in “Gods,” though the two of them were never on set together.  “I was really upset about it at the time, I’ve calmed myself down a bit,” Jones said.

I know me personally, I have a lot of friends over the internet and it makes me feel a lot less lonely when I talk to them (because I don't have many friends in real life and even they ignore me, blow me off, or third wheel me, so I normally feel alone and isolated). My parents say I would stop feeling isolated and alone if I spent less time with my friends online and more time trying to make friends in real life. What are your thoughts?

It’s really important to remember that behind the username of your online friend is a real person! Hold on to that fact because it shows that these people with qualities that you look for in a friend can be anywhere. Use social media and the internet to research spaces where you can find people who are like you. At It Gets Better it’s really important for us to be constantly updating our Resource Center so young people can find places where they can get support. Be diligent about dedicating time to finding your people in person, you will be surprised by what you might find. You have friends in more places than you know!

I'm a trans man dating a cis gay man, and some of his gay buddies have started mocking him for "not really being gay" "being kinda straight" etc. for dating me. And I feel really shit that he has to go through that, but it's also making me feel really insecure and invalid in this relationship. He's said he's going to stop hanging out with those guys because of this, but I don't want him to have to lose friends because of me... idk I just feel real down rn.

I’m sorry your boyfriend has/had such gross transphobes among his friends. If he cuts them out of his life because of their transphobic bullshit, I’d say that’s a good thing. It’s not necessarily him “losing friends”, it’s more “the people who he used to think were friends revealed themselves to be asshats that he doesn’t want to hang out with”.

You are a man. As is he. Your relationship does not in any way invalidate his identity as a gay man. It’s not your fault that some shitty people are misgendering you and using you as a tool to invalidate him.

anonymous asked:

So I guess questions about his personal life are a thing. As well as the lies... Sure Styles, you stalked your dates and now you don't and just.... I really wish he didnt have to do this. I know personal life sells and all but :((

Okay. Here’s for an unpopular opinion.

So far, I would wager that nearly everything has gone the way harry has wanted it to. He is doing what he wants, how he wants, and he has a team that is supporting him. At least that is how it looks right now.

If Nick, one of Harry’s close friends, brought it up, it’s because it was approved. Look, I won’t make a real judgment until we hear it, but for me at least… I’ve just got to consider that what might appear “bad” to me as a fan, might not be bad for Harry. There might be solid reasons why he is talking about itand I don’t feel comfortable anymore jumping to the idea that he’s forced to talk about this. Maybe he is, but maybe there’s a lot that we don’t know bts and maybe that is playing a role. Text can be misleading anyway and I think we should wait to hear it before jumping the gun.

anonymous asked:

So, I have friends on tumblr, and I am terrified of losing them, because idk how to start conversations? And I don't know how to help them when they're upset. And I don't want to lose them. I really don't.

Hi Anon!

This is a really good question.

Personally, I think starting a conversation online is actually easier than starting one in real life. You have the opportunity to introduce context as you begin the conversation, rather than having to base what you’re saying on the current context of where you are and what you’re doing.

For example, last night I went out with friends to get a sundae. We talked about the music playing in the car - that’s an easy and obvious discussion topic. We talked about sundaes. And we talked about each other, like my health issues, or my friend’s first week studying or how another friend really needs to quit her crappy job. Those are all subjects that arise naturally out of the context of where you are and who you’re with.

But the thing about online communication is that you can automatically bring the context along with you. One of my best friends lives a long way from me and we mostly only talk via facebook chat. Sometimes I might read a news article that makes me sad or angry or happy. I can send her the link and say something like “have you seen this?” or “omigod, I’m so mad about this”. It doesn’t matter what’s actually going on where I am or where she is, because the conversation comes with its own opening line, based on what I’m showing her.

And I think that’s a good way to talk to people online. So, let’s say you’ve got a friend on Tumblr. We’ll call your friend Susan.

Susan makes a post that she’s been tagged to do a question and answer thing, so she gives all the answers. One of the questions is name a food you love and Susan says she loves pancakes. That’s an opportunity for you to start a conversation with her, without worrying how to lead into that. You can just send her a message saying “Oh, your favourite food is pancakes?! Mine too!” And then you can talk to each other about pancakes. And that might lead to all kinds of other topics.

Another possibility is sending a link or tagging them in something you reblog. Maybe you think they’ll find it funny, or see themselves in it or be as angry about it as you. That starts a conversation too. You can send Susan a video of an otter sliding down a snow bank (someone tagged me in just such a video on Facebook and it was glorious). Then you and Susan can talk about otters. Or snow. Or which is the cutest animal.

As for comforting an online friend when they need it, the best thing you can do is be available. If Susan says she is having a bad day and she’s upset, then send her a message asking if she wants to talk to you about it. Ask her if there’s any way you can help. She might not know what kind of help she needs, but you can suggest. Maybe you could just let her vent her feelings to you. Or maybe she’d like your advice. You could find pictures of something she likes (like kittens or her favourite musician) and show them to her to see if it can cheer her up. You could offer to talk about something else with her, to take her mind off things.

There are lots of things you can do to talk to a friend in need, even if you’re not able to give them a real life hug or make them tea. Often, people feel better just by knowing that someone cares about them and wants to help.

Just to give more examples of what I mean, here are some actual opening sentences from my own recent online chat windows. I hope none of my friends will mind! I have many more friends online than offline, so I guess I’m doing something right, and so are they. Some of these are conversations I started, and others were started by the other person.

  • “Hi! Is the heat any better today?”
  • “Random question!!! You’re a singer, right? I’ve seen you say that somewhere???”
  • “Oh my God have you seen Moana yet?”
  • “Hiya! How’s the new job?”
  • “Have you SEEN this?” *link to video of famous actor*
  • “You’re into scrapbooking, right?”

Those are all good ways of starting a conversation, out of nowhere.

But you can also just start with a “How are you?” or “What’s up with you?” If you ask those questions and you care enough about the answers to keep the conversation going, then you are being an excellent online friend.

Most people love to talk about themselves, their lives and the things they’re interested in. If you can give them the space to do that, then they’re going to be happy, and they’re going to remember that you’re a person who makes them happy.

Good luck, make friends, keep friends and STAY COOL LIKE A TIGER SWIMMING IN ICECREAM!!!

U saw them both & returned home saying they were a couple--right? I think they R couple but I am confused about where T fits in. A bar owner who manages local musicians-Right? Some call C's manager / assistant but he pops up everywhere. They show no affection towards each. For a SO of 3 years no hand holding or even photo on C's Instagram. I'm not trying to pry into their relationship if they have one but I'm confused by S&C behavior. SC don't stop their friendly flirt off screen.??

I think he’s a longtime friend of Cait’s who graciously stepped into a role she needed him in, which is some meld of things; probably closest to an assistant. However, I get called rude names by some people in this fandom when I say he’s her assistant bc apparently that’s offensive so I’ll stick with he’s a really good friend ;)

anyway, no they don’t stop the flirty behavior off screen. I came back from ECCC (even more) entirely and thoroughly convinced they were/are together in real life. hope that’s helpful! 

anonymous asked:

Elise, do you have any headcanons about Bahorel right after he left law school? I've just left it too to fulfill my real dream I realized recently, but even my best friend says it's not possible to come true. I know they don't want to hurt me, but still I feel really lonely now with almost no support and it kinda sucks.. Sorry for bothering you, but I look up to you, you're such a lovely person deserving the best in life. I hope everything goes well for you

Bahorel does law school the way I did maths for the first 18 years of my life: poorly and with a distinct lack of motivation to get better at it.

Law just seemed like the thing to do at the time, you know? Law makes you look employable. But Bahorel just isn’t a white collar kind a guy. And that’s coming from a guy who loves collars.

Bahorel is social! Bahorel was born to go from place to place, make friend with everybody he meets and fill up a whole bar with his roaring voice. He wasn’t made for Law.

When he ditches law school, it’s like a weight has been lifted from his shoulders. Sure, he wasn’t going to lectures that often to begin with, but it was still a relief. He does a couple of side jobs here and there, helping people move out, playing the bartender for a couple of nights a week, coaching some people at the gym. He likes that, tending the bar. He gets to meet people.

That’s how he meets Feuilly and Grantaire, rolling up their sleeves as their about to start a brawl. Bahorel joins because a) brawl and b) the other guys were looking for it. It gets him fired, but at least he’s made two new friends.

A week later, Bahorel attends his first ABC meeting.

I had a dream about him ;;o;;

Aw dang, I should’ve gone for that PhD in How To Twitter, because I really am bad at it. Honestly, I have no idea how to Twitter, but I imagine a lot of my buddies here will have some good advice for you, so watch the replies/reblogs on this post!

(I have a Twitter at eponymous_rose that’s exclusively for keeping all the CritRole cast-related Twitters in one easy-reading place, and I have started cross-posting a little bit of stuff there from time to time, but honestly I haven’t figured out yet how or if I want to differentiate that online presence from this one. I sort of have a real-life Twitter that’s mostly for liveblogging conferences? I don’t know what I’m doing either.)

Help the anon out, friends?

I just need like one(1) person in real life who has amassed as much extensive random old comics knowledge as I have, because none of my friends know enough about Marvel outside of the movies, but I can go on for literally hours about X-Men

they tune out after about five minutes and I can’t really blame them

I just want a friend to share weird vintage comics and yell about crazy marvel lore with tbh

I am straight and I firmly believe Sherlock and John are in love

I’m gonna say this once because I often see the tjlr argument that only people of the LGBT+ community claim to see evidence for Johnlock and support it.

This is wrong. There are many straight people who acknowledge, like and / or support Johnlock just as much. All my friends in real life who have watched Sherlock, for example. 

I, personally, never doubted it. EVER. Since the dinner at Angelo’s.  Johnlock is plain as day. And it is my OTP.

YO, where do you headcanon Malefos and Angor's people being from? I wanted to go with N. Europe after the flashback scene, but then also S. America bc of where they found him, but then I saw the Black Panther trailer and with Ike Amadi being so cool, I'm like "Africaaa??? The clothes might match???"

actually, I plan on placing them in the Rainforests of Southeast Asia! 

Angor Rot appears to have a lot of design inspiration from the real life ruins of Angkor Wat besides just having his name being a pun of the location:

and said ruins just so happen to be in Cambodia! So it makes sense to put them in a location that’s close-by or similar to the real life area. Though not specifically Angkor Wat itself, there’s a good chance the trolls live near there, since their skin seems to be of the same kind (or you know magically similar) of sandstone used to make the ruins, and they’re covered in tree root growth also like the ruins.

I’ve been working a bit behind the scenes on their race as we speak with @zonbiconbi (though mostly me with some tips from her as we work on developing up the brutruis troll genus), and we both feel like they’d likely live near there considering the strong resemblance in the ruins’ design put to the troll Angor Rot.

of course this is still up in the air while I finish up developing Malefos, but there you go!

Hi! So, I know that you disagree with shipping real life people, but what do you think about shipped real life people who don't mind? For example, danisnotonfire on YouTube has said that he doesn't mind people shipping him with his best friend (although this may have changed). I don't want to start an argument or anything, but I'm very curious on your opinions because I've never really talked to anybody who disagrees with shipping real life people: you've made me think! :) Have a nice day!

Well I mean if someone’s okay with being “shipped” then that’s… fine… I guess? Like it’s their choice and it’s not like I’m gonna stop them, though I gotta say it really rubs me the wrong way. Idk I just find the whole concept super weird and creepy lol

  • person: okay but shinya has actually been really dark and ruthless
  • me: I see
  • also me: shinya has known cruelty death and rejection since he was a child also he has fought for his life and killed fellow children to survive only to be stuck with the Hiiragis who mind you don't actually like him that much therefore he has known no real familiar bond nor adequate affection and although his entire growth as a human being has been heavily influenced by his past he actually tried and still tries his best to be a decent friend and a decent man in spite of the circumstances because you might have noticed they're fighting a war and there is not a character who's entirely good or entirely bad that's why owari no seraph is good because it shows you real people dealing with pain loss failure and rampaging vampires who ALSO have their motives please consider this thanks okay just consider this please consider-

After a LONG talk about how I'd love to see more diversity in the scifi/fant genre (or any genre, really) - "I don't mind diversity, as long as there's a REASON." Still trying to figure this one out...

Whitespeak for: I’m just saying there has to be a reason for other races to be around. Them simply existing and going about their day is clearly not realistic enough. I mean, it’s not like they do that in real life! I know all my PoC friends and contacts have a reason to be in my life, which is why I have none.

My heart is paralyzed

You went to school to learn, girl

You may think that I’m a zero

I can’t pretend to know how you feel

You’ll take my life, but I’ll take yours too

Do you really expect us not to talk about seven years of our life because your poor little heart can't handle it?
