Seriously guys Robin deserves major props and much more appreciation and recognition for just how talented he is. Not only as an animator but ESPECIALLY as an editor!
You can tell just by seeing some of his edits in Seán’s videos that he works insanely hard on them. I mean look at some of these!
And these are just a few examples I thought of at the top of my head and my screenshots don’t even do them justice. I imagine some of these edits can take so much time to do and I think all that time and hard work deserves to be appreciated more.
So from me, the JSE community and from other communities as well. I want to say in this post that we all appreciate you Robin. We know that you work really hard and you are seriously a super talented animator, editor and person. :)

Thanks again to everyone that meet us over at Shutocon! While there, we showed off a small chunk of our next video, Hellbent. In it, things were a bit different in that the audio, well.. had AUDIO other than the lone music track playing. To help us with this sound design, we brought in a specialist.
He did an awesome job giving us the exact kind of sound design we were looking for in the intro section of Hellbent and did it in a small window of time to get the video ready for Shutocon.
The video in this link is more of his work. This time, as a test, he took a sliver from Freaking Out and added sound effects to see what would happen. I wanted to link to this video as a way of publicly crediting him for the work he’s done for us and to link to his channel in general, which I advise you all to look around in.
The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 12]
Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365
“Buckle down, folks,” calls out John Older [first assistant director], his voice resonating around the caves [representing the inside of the Sycorax ship], “cos it’s very difficult to work in here. Let’s go for a take…”
“The door!” screams Billie. “Close the door!”
Noel spins around. As the Sycorax grabs him, he manages to pull the TARDIS door shut just in time. Slam! Door closes. Well, not quite.
“Er - he didn’t close the door,” says Jon. “It’s swung back open.”
“Oh fiddlesticks,” cries Noel, frustrated. “That TARDIS door is such a naughty old thing.”
Actually, that’s not exactly what Noel said. I’m paraphrasing. But this is a family magazine, so let’s just leave it.
“Okay, Noel, you blew the plot,” laughs James [Hawes, director]. “If the door doesn’t close, we’re screwed.”
I don't know if this is something i should ask on this blog (feel free to delete if its not) but i heard the chainsmokers said something racist, do you know what it was?
This is definitely something I am willing to answer. The video has been taken down. But yesterday at about 10AM KST, the Clamslappers posted a video of an interview in China for Ultra Festival on Twitter. And the host asked whether or not one of the guys (idk their names and I don’t want to know their names) whether he brought his dog. And he made a “joke” implying that dogs aren’t safe in China because of the typical Asian stereotype that all Asians eat/slaughter dogs. The guy didn’t say this specifically, but it was implied through his silence when asked why he didn’t bring his dog and after the host realized what he was implying the Clamslappers and the host laughed together. The caption was also the laughing (with tears) emoji. Later, (I just checked now because I have them blocked), the member (again idk their names) posted an apology saying that it was because he heard dogs get slaughtered in China (you can find it here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJdyhAcUMAAr8Fk.jpg:orig), but it was still a racist comment based off of old stereotypes and it frustrates me to an incredible extent. The fact that they make these remarks and laugh about it makes me mad. While he said this is why he didn’t bring his dog, I’m sure he was making a joke about Chinese and Asians in general. If he was truly worried about his dog, he would have looked concerned or sad or made a comment about saving dogs in the interview. Instead he made a cheap “joke” and attempted to cover it up with a campaign to fight against dog slaughter. What makes it even more upsetting is that they are collaborating with BTS, a South Korean boy group. I know a lot of you guys won’t agree with me, but yeah. Also for those fans that are worried about whether or not dislking or not supporting the Clamslappers makes you a bad ARMY, it really doesn’t. Fact of the matter is we love BTS not them. Just because we love BTS doesn’t mean that we have to be fans of those people. I’m going to add this because I don’t think some of you get it. I am Asian, I have lived through ugly Asian stereotypes, remarks, “jokes.” Don’t make comments about the Asian experience and say “well this sterotype applies sometimes.” It doesn’t matter. It was a cheap ugly “joke” and should not be tolerated. - Kylie

During the weekend of Gallifrey One (February 17 - 19), my friend Heather had a bad seizure after Saturday’s events and was briefly hospitalized. It was there she discovered the breast cancer she was fighting in 2016 metastasized into her brain. I’ve known her husband, Stephan, for many years during my San Diego Comic Con days, and after hearing this horrible news, I wanted to do something nice for them both.
After Gallifrey One ended, I sent a request to Matt Lucas on Twitter to see if he and the other cast members could make a
video for Heather.
responded and told me to email his agency, Troika Talent, to provide further information. Once I did all that, I only waited a few days. I received an email back on March 1st from his agent with this video attached. While working on the episode, World Enough and Time, Matt filmed himself, Pearl, Peter, and Michelle a get-well-soon message for Heather.
I’m only posting this because Series 10 is done filming and Heather wants to also post it online. Matt also said it was okay to share after the episode aired.
I’m very grateful they did this. It was one of the most thoughtful, kindest, and sweetest gestures the main Doctor Who cast ever did for my friends! 😊💕
could i get a mf uuuuuuuuuh voltron youtuber headcanons?? (I know it's basic shhh)
sure thing anon!
• lance would probably be a beauty blogger. he posts videos about skin care routines and does lots of product reviews!
- occassionaly he does other silly videos like Flirting 101 or he vlogs him doing random shit like singing along to the radio in the car or going to starbucks
• hunk has a baking channel! his is really artsy and so professional looking everyone is a bit jealous of him
- he also does a lot of food challenge videos with lance. theyre usually horrific but everyone loves them
• pidges channel is literally a mess. she has gaming videos, prank videos (usually involving matt and shiro because theyre so easy to prank), conspiracy videos, you name it.
- she probably has a couple that are considered “the weird side of youtube” lets be real
• the three of them have a collab gaming channel! it was pidges idea after she brought them in for a collab video on her channel and it was a hit. people mostly just watch it to see them goofing off and being silly rather than to actually watch them gaming. sometimes they can convince allura to join as well.
• speaking of allura! shes a beauty blogger also. she does a lot of makeup and hair tutorials, and she also does fashion haul videos! literally everyone is in love with her
- her and lance collab all the time. theyre practically regulars on eachothers channels.
• keiths channel is… odd. he mostly posts conspiracy videos and knife tricks. he posted a couple singing video which is where he gained most of his followers from, but mostly his videos are just him ranting about aliens or mothman or that were all living in a simulation.
- pidge and he, unsuprisingly, collab a lot on those
• shiro doesnt have a youtube channel himself, but he does appear frequently in the others videos as hes friends with all of them
- hes mostly on matts channel though, everyone loves their relationship
• matt only joined youtube because of pidge, so most of his videos involve the two of them doing weird things, though once he started dating shiro a lot of his videos involved him as well
• all of them are really good friends! shiro and matt were high school friends, which is how pidge and keith met, and when pidge started collabing with hunk and lance thats when the rest of them met as well
• sometimes they do huge collab videos with all of them, and youtube LOVES it
• lance and keiths first ever collab together was an eating contest (food courtesy of hunk of course) and after that they just continued filming random competitions between the two
- there was no denying the chemistry they had together
• they came out as a couple during a collab together
- lance: alright guys! you’ve been asking for it and now u shall receive. im doing my first ever tag video; the boyfriend tag!
- cue keith walking into the frame with a little wave
• needless to say their fans exploded after that
• allura and hunk probably do weird challenge videos together all the time. if theres a challenge out there on youtube they’ve probably done it.
• allura starts dating an advise blogger named shay and soon they do a collab with lance and keith. wlw and mlm solidarity anyone???
• lance loves to do silly videos with keith, mostly because keith is always super confused and the fans love it
- lance: hey guys welcome back to my channel today we’re gonna prank my boyfriend haha
lance: hey keith
lance: i’m gay
keith: ok? cool.
lance: HAH pranked you! i’m bi bitch!
(thank you @kidsflash for that scene)
• coran appears in a few of alluras videos, mostly doing storytime videos of all his weird adventures. no one can ever tell if hes serious or not.
• keith and lance post a collab singing video once. its their most popular video.
thats.. all ive got for now. lemme know if you want more!
the best part about this entire thing is that it took me seeing this and only this and it inspired 6k+ worth of smut, fluff, and drunk!harry being cute. so it’s really cute, then filthy, and then cute again, and then filthy one last time so it has BALANCE. also based on this blurb i posted yesterday! enjoy <3
“Think it’ll be the best night f’my life f’you go an’ catch that bouquet,” he says in answer to your earlier question, and your eyes go wide and you shake your head almost instantly. “Absolutely not – have you ever been part of a bouquet toss? Those women will claw me t’the death tryin’ t’get it,” you reason, and he pouts.
“Please, baby – promise I’ll kiss it better,” he says, and you almost give in because he’s properly pouting like a child right now, but you look over to where all the bachelorettes have gathered, and you scrunch your nose. “Y’can buy me a bouquet f’roses and throw ‘em at me, ‘f that’s really what you want t’see happenin’,” you offer, and Harry literally whines. “Baby–” he starts, and you cut him off, “No.”
It goes on like that until the final call for the girls to gather and Harry shrugs. “Fine then. I guess I’ll go,” he says, and you give him a look of confusion, your eyebrows knitted together, until you realize he means he’s joining the bouquet toss.
Harry and Y/N go to a wedding in Hawaii and he joins in on the bouquet toss when you refuse
Summary:“Ohana means family. And family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” Everyone knows that Dan is a Lester and belongs on the family holiday–well, everyone except Dan himself. However, a beautiful seaside walk and a special surprise from Martyn and Cornelia may be just the ammunition he needs to change his mind.
Warnings: Like 2 swear words but that’s it
A/N: Because we all know there was some soppy convincing needed to get Dan to stay in Florida. Inspired by this ask over @nihilist-toothpaste. I hope you enjoy!!
-Despite Neil’s slow start into the world of technology, once he discovers the wonders of online trolling, he has a very active social media presence.
-Usually he’s just commenting on fan pages and responding to his fans and the like.
-But it’s his birthday and fans have been leaving nice comments on his pages all day and it’s a little overwhelming but eventually by like midnight he’s gathered himself enough to be able to respond.
-And since it would take forever to respond to every comment individually and he’s tired, he decides to just post a video on his page saying thank you.
-Neil doesn’t intend for Andrew to also be in the video, but 1) it’s midnight and they’re already in bed and moving sounds hard
-2) It’s not like they’re purposefully hiding or not hiding their relationship, they’re just living their lives and
-3) Neil is still completely oblivious to things like public image
-So he thinks nothing of turning his laptop on and waving at the camera (like a nerd) and saying thank you and how much he appreciates his fans.
-He goes on for a while until Andrew rolls over into the frame, wearing his glasses and looking sleep rumpled and says “It’s 12:15 am and some of us want to sleep sometime this year. Say goodnight Neil.”
-And Neil just smiles and says goodnight, but doesn’t turn the camera off in time for it (and the fans) to miss him kissing Andrew’s cheek sleepily before rolling over.
-The jury’s still out on whether that was obliviousness or Neil being a shit starter.
-But anyway the internet explodes.
-Fan comments on the video are through the roof.
-Nicky makes no less than 12 separate fan accounts just to comment on how adorable it is.
-Andrew wants to kill Neil
-But what else is new?
-And if Andrew retaliates by posting a picture of Neil sleeping in one of Andrew’s hoodies on his Snapchat, who’s to say?
We learned through promo that Just Hold On was not written specifically in response to Jay’s illness, but was a song that had been written on 2016 after Louis direct-messaged Steve on Twitter.
Then the video came out yesterday. The story of the video is of two people who meet as strangers, spend time doing fun things together, become romantically involved, get fun-married, and speed through a space-time warp to different parts of the world.
I thought it was super cute. The actors were good together, there was international and racial inclusivity, and the message was upbeat.
In the meantime, I learned more about the structure of EDM songs, which is a little bit different than a typical pop song.
An EDM song has no bridge. Instead, there’s a pop drop moment when the electronics take over—in JHO, the kind of soaring-into-space sound. The distinction between sections also tends to be less pronounced– the bass of the first verse might become the focus of the chorus, for instance.
With the above in mind, I listened to the lyrics of “Just Hold On” again, asking myself these questions.
1. Why is this song a love story?
2. Why is there a contrast between the positivity of the video and the sadness/ need for reassurance in the lyrics? Does the time frame in which it was written matter?
The following is my personal opinion.
The lyrics clearly address someone, “Darling.” The video has offered one interpretation that this person is a love interest.
The singer seems to be poised between two times, the future, which he wishes he could see (via a time machine), and the past, the “chapter” that has “ended.”
It’s a time of flux and open possibility. “You can be who you were/ or who you’ll become.”
The present, or the near future– what he can see of it– is not so great. Something bad has, or is about to, happen. “If it all goes wrong/ darling, just hold on.”
At the time the song was performed, we thought Jay’s illness was the sad event referred to in the song. And it still may be. There isn’t only one interpretation to a song. But the video explicitly associates the song to romantic love, and we can’t just ignore that this love is linked to these lyrics.
It’s not over ‘til it’s all been said
It’s not over ‘til your dying breath
So what do you want them to say when you’re gone?
That you gave up or that you kept going on?
The tone of the lyrics is one of persistence through suffering– the “dying breath.” It’s not about fun or partying or dancing or gambling. It’s not about a hook-up or a casual fling.
It’s about fighting back. It’s about surviving and returning to life. The fact that there’s a marriage in the video shows that the relationship goes deeper than momentary fun. It’s about commitment, hope, mutual support.
The “pop drop” moment is the moment when the main message of the song is repeated over and over. In this case, the singer sings to the second person– the love interest, according to the video. Or it could be the love interest singing back; both make sense. “If it all goes wrong/ darling, just hold on.”
The implication is that all WILL go wrong. The lyrics anticipate disaster. And the singer says, don’t let disaster break your relationship. Be strong. Hold on.
It’s a brave, kind, reassuring message. Given the events in Louis’s personal life in the last two years, culminating in the ridiculous, terrible charade at LAX airport that resulted in his being dragged through the criminal and civil justice systems– of all the participants, he was the most innocent one who was there that day, and unbelievably, the only person arrested– I marvel at his inner strength, his moral courage, his tenacity, kindness, intelligence, and sangfroid.
I want to thank Louis and Steve for making this amazing song.
Jay, you raised such a great person. You’d be so proud.
