i'm going to actually cry now

Why Kiki’s Delivery Service is important for flailing 20-somethings like myself and why this movie makes me cry happy tears:

-Kiki goes out into the world and realizes how bad some people can be, but she still tries to do good
-She knows she’s wants to be a helpful witch but she doesn’t really know what to do with her witchy powers
-She literally loses her powers after becoming very depressed with this knowledge and feeling like she’s not a good enough person or a good enough witch
-She realizes that she may not be doing anything “great” or “cool” like other witches but she’s actually really successful because she uses her powers to help people and start her own small business
-Miyazaki is trying to show us that because Kiki is kind and helpful and stays true to herself then that is what makes her incredibly successful
-Sometimes we need reminders in our life that we can be successful in many ways

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she really means: in season 9 episode 21 of Friends "The One With the Fertility Test" Chandler tells Monica they are both incapable of having a baby, due to low sperm motility and an inhospitable environment. I always assumed Chandler lied to Monica about his low sperm motility so Monica wouldn't find out she was the reason they couldn't conceive. (Even though there was no way to prove it). However, when the doctor calls and Chandler answers, he asks to speak to Monica...if something was wrong with Chandler, the doctor would've told him because he was already on the phone. And when Monica asked Chandler if there was a problem with him or with her, before answering, Chandler hesitates and looks off to the side a little before saying "actually it's both of us."
  • so basically all I'm ever going to think about is how Chandler probably did lie to Monica to protect her from knowing that she is the reason they cannot naturally have a child, the one thing she has wanted since the beginning of season 1, and now i have to cry for eternity

get to know me: favorite female character → the ‘avatar: the last airbender’ girls
“I’m a warrior, but I’m a girl too.”

Okay but like……. I’m starting to think that it’s illegal for the YOI team to draw a picture with both Yuuri and Victor in it and not have Victor touching Yuuri in some way (most often an arm around the shoulder).

Like……. Does Victor know that he won’t actually evaporate into nothingness if he’s not in physical contact with his bae for 10 seconds?????

(Potato quality of the picture for now; can’t wait to see the HD version! It’s a poster that comes with the “Go Yuri Go!” official fanbook.)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales International Trailer

Aka the one where Elizabeth Turner, née Swann shows up

Ok but Percy Jackson isn’t just cute or even just hot he’s ACTUALLY ATTRACTIVE BECAUSE OF HIS PERSONALITY like he’s relatable to the readers and he’s not disturbing with millions of sex jokes and he respects Annabeth and gives her credit for how badass she is and admits his faults and ACTUALLY TRIES TO IMPROVE THEM and he loves his mom and he’s just so respectful??? Like???

anonymous asked:

OMG I just realized Juggie said Betty was doing it "to prove she's a great girlfriend" because he thinks she's trying to make Archie see she's a great girlfriend, then he voiced his fears that she's just slumming it with him while she's waiting for Archie to want her. And he said he's just her project because that's how he's made sense of her actually liking him in his mind and now I'm crying because my baby Jughead is so damaged and I just wanna hug him and tell him everything will be ok

Wasn’t that though the truest and most right to the heart fight in television ever? Another character in Jughead’s shoes would not have said anything, would have just slounched in the back and when faced with the girl’s confrontation would have lied about it or brush it off as “nothing” and then go blab and complain about it to his friends instead. Even in a fight, Bughead has the most communication a couple could ask for! Jughead choice of words is very interesting to be honest. He uses “slumming it up”, not “dating” not “fooling around” or anything else that he could color with equal annoyance and spite, he uses a verb that actually depicts the situation. She is the perfect one dating somebody imperfect; from a lower class, a lower level in school hierarchy, lower mental stability and with lower social expectations and aspirations. She is just settling because her perfect match is not in his right mind at the moment. My heart just ached when Jughead spat this to her face. It truly was painful to watch him understimating himself and sardonically laughing at his own foolish hope that somebody like Betty could actually fall for somebody like him. After this big show that she put up for him, Jughead instantly believed that it was actually all for Archie, the boy that loved putting up a show himself, the boy that was at ease with the spotilight. Just for Betty to make him see what he’s been missing and when he did see it, because he would eventually, she would run immediately to his arms. Poor Juggie was hurting so much in last night’s episode, I’m so glad all tension was releaved with that beautiful make up scene at the end. And I hope he gets the reassurance that he is the only one for her from Betty in the next episodes! <3

About POI’s accuracy on technology

As someone that’s “good with computers” like they say on the show, I’ve been watching Person Of Interest with my geek goggles on. What I saw was so deliciously satisfying that I felt the need to check on the Internet to see if others had noticed how accurate this show actually was. Surprisingly, I didn’t find many posts, there were some, sure, but I was sad it wasn’t praised more. So, I put together a list of the things I noticed were true or really close to the truth. [Geekmode == ON] Here we go : 

1. The most impressive fact is how Person Of Interest predicted the NSA scandal one year before it happened. In 1x22, Reese was sent by the Machine to protect NSA agent Henry Peck who wanted to reveal to a journalist how his agency was conducting illegal surveillance on a massive scale. In 2013, Edward Snowden did exactly that. 


2. The show once mentioned a dangerous virus called Stuxnet whose source code was in the laptop that Reese and Kara were sent to retrieve in Ordos by the CIA (1x20).

In the real world, Stuxnet really exists and is indeed a very dangerous virus. In 2010, Stuxnet reportedly ruined almost one-fifth of Iran's nuclear centrifuges.


3. In Person Of Interest, they like to show real code without explaining it. It’s just for fun, they know the general audience won’t care because most people don’t understand it but they also know that geeks notice these things. For example, they showed Finch casually manipulating the real source code of the Stuxnet virus in 4x05:


4. Speaking of Finch, you know how one of his aliases is Harold Whistler, right? We know that he chooses his aliases based on bird names but this one in particular can also be explained by Harold’s past. More specifically his teenage years, back when he used public phones to call people in other countries for free (3x11).

            Btw, the guy on the phone is definitely not French, horrible accent ^^

In the real world, the first hackers were called phreakers, they did exactly what Harold did using… whistles. The blue whistle Harold uses in this scene is the actual model the phreakers used in the 70s, crazy right? It’s in fact a toy that was found in Cap’nCrunch boxes of cereals back in the day. That particular whistle produced a sound that matched with phone operators’ systems and provided to the phreaker a free international line. So, Harold is indeed a Whistler and a good one at that.


5. Still about young Harold, when he built his first computer in 1980, he hacked the ARPAnet (the ancestor of the Internet) which is why he has been wanted by the FBI for treason ever since (screenshot from 3x12).

In the real world, in 1980, someone introduced a virus in the ARPAnet which temporarily halted its functions, they still don’t know who the hacker was.


6. Once again, about Harold, his struggle to accept his creation is already a real life issue. Scientists and engineers are indeed working on building AIs and are facing ethical and moral issues similar to Harold’s. The possibility of a benevolent AI is also mentioned as the only way to avoid a Samaritan-like AI in this very interesting TED talk:


7. In 5x01, Root and Reese stole a truck of Playstation 3’s to rebuild the Machine. I remember smiling at that at first, then I thought about it and figured it would probably work. Of course, in the show, they left out a lot of parameters that would have been needed to make it work and building it should’ve taken at least a day or so but I won’t blame them for that, an episode only lasts 45 minutes after all.


In the real world, the US Air Force actually built a similar supercomputer called « the Condor Cluster » using 1,760 Playstation 3’s. Well done POI, very well done !


8. This one is about Root and is more of a fun fact than technical stuff but still. When Root first appeared on the show, she was this anonymous and mysterious hacker who had managed to break into Harold’s system, which is huge considering how much of a “private person” he is.

So, what is all the fuss about ? Well, when you use a computer, you have a username, right ? All Linux systems have a default user which is called « Root ». So, the root user, also called « superuser » or « poweruser » has full access to everything in the machine. Basically, Root likes to be called a Superuser in her daily life. Now, thanks to my job, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t see root…

                                 Yep, this is me becoming root ;)


9. Other fun fact, in Linux systems, the « admin » user is like a common user, the root account is the only one who can modify the system. Just like Harold is « admin » to the Machine, she is Root to everyone (except Harold, I can understand why he always calls her Ms Groves, it must be frustrating for him to be constantly reminded that she bested him). She’s a hacker so the way I see it, when people call her by that name, they literally recognize her talent (even though they don’t know it), saying she’s so good she can access anyone’s system. Considering how the show ended, I’d say that her name is more than ever accurate… Love you Root, you classy, sassy, badass cinnamon roll.


10. Now, this cool trick that we use at work with my colleagues of the IT department: neodym magnets taken from (old) hard drives are some of of strongest magnets you can find. They’re so strong we use them to fix screwdrivers to the wall but they can also mess with electronic devices. This trick was used by Root in 5x07 to open doors which had an electronic lock. Root, you badass geek, forever in my heart.


I’m choosing to stop here because there’s just too much awesome accurate tech stuff in this amazing show to count!

If some people want to add to the list, or discuss it, I’d love to know your thoughts! [Geekmode == OFF]

First addition to this list by ellainthetardis:

11. When writing code, everything must follow a specific order, otherwise the code will act up and don’t know what to do. Think of HTML and CSS codes, which are what you see in web browsers every day!

The element in an HTML file (or root element) tells all the other elements in the code what to do. What order they should appear in, what to make certain things look like, etc.

So my first thought when I saw Root’s chosen name was this: like the person before me said, Root considers herself a superuser. Add to that the fact that she thinks she’s superior to everyone else, even Harold. Like a code in a string of HTML, she loves telling others what to do and expects them to follow her commands.

She’s always saying “Trust me” because she actually knows what’s the better option here. And also, because even though she thinks (knows) her mind is superior, she is still asking for other people to really believe in her. (And now I’m gonna go cry. Excuse me.)


About POI’s accuracy on technology 2.0 is now posted! It’s here : x

All the bitchass white boys complaining about the new Far Cry being “anti-white” and “anti-Christian” did not expect a game to remind them that America isn’t much less susceptible to extremist regimes and murderous cults than any 3rd world countries and/or non-white cultures…

Ya know like the KKK…

Or neo-nazis…

Those things that actually exist right now…

Ok so that gif post that you just posted, the upper right hand one where Emily takes Corvo's hand, I JUST noticed that she smiles slightly when she takes his hand, then lifts her chin a bit and walks with perfect posture befitting a queen. After being near alone for 6 months with her mom killed and not knowing about Corvo, she exudes confidence and strength upon holding her dad's hand. I'm going to cry in a corner now.

I’m actually glad you’re bringing this up, because I watched through this scene many times, thought about their body language in all the ways they express their affection on such moments, so. I completely agree.

I mean, there’s a good reason why the Heart says Emily sees and knows far more than she lets on, and the game is basically full of implications of the same notion. That Emily is a child, but actually a highly inquisitive, attentive and clever one, and she understands what’s happening around her way more than the adults give her credit for. She has the demeanour of a playful child, but she also possesses the skill of maintaining a certain facade by this point, and she knows it will be easier for everyone, herself included, if she doesn’t draw too much attention to her own grief. She doesn’t seem to talk about it much and tries her best to carry herself with dignity and appear as lighthearted as she can, even though it takes its toll and Callista hears her cry at night.

In other words, this child learned how to wear a mask too early for her years.

So, what I love about this scene is how it clearly serves as a…transition, of sorts. In the place where she was held as a hostage, she was almost reduced to a nobody, and after that heartbreakingly affectionate reuinion she had with Corvo, I have no doubt it was the same on their way back, on the boat, where she could be chatty, or simply sit at Corvo’s side hugging his arm and trying to anchor herself in this new reality where she’s finally free and he’s alive, and Samuel and boatman allows himself the little slip where he sees her as simply a scared little girl and not a future empress, and she just laughs in response and doesn’t mind.

As you arrive, however, you can spot Wallace from the distance, the way he runs back into the pub and calls for everyone to come over to the shore and greet you, and as Emily steps out of the boat, after the private and quiet familiarity of Corvo’s presence, she’s faced with being a princess again - people are bowing and addressing her formally. She has no luxury of being a scared little girl any longer, she has expectations to fulfill and she falls back into the role surprisingly quickly, because she knows she should. 

And that little gesture Corvo offers her before she does it, before she steps into that role, seems to be what gave her the courage to do so, to step over the threshold and be what people expect of her, and it’s a little silly in its overly courteous manner, but it’s a gesture of comfort, of reassurance and encouragement. So that she knows, without a single word being said, that even though she has a certain role to fulfill in front of all these people she only just met, he’s there and he won’t leave her again. It’s like all the times their games were over and he would hand her back, with the same gesture, to her teachers and nannies and governesses, in a world slightly different from the one they live in when they spend their family time together. And with this sense of familitarity, it’s all a little bit less scary.

So Misha confirmed he WILL BE in the first episode of season 13 for which I’m celebrating*

Ok, so...

I have a friend who goes to UC Davis, and apparently the students there get like roughly 250 pages of printer paper to use over the quarter. Apparently, his neighbors hadn’t used much of their paper, so they thought to might as well use them now since they won’t roll over onto next quarter….

[Moonlight playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney] and I are this kid. We are Chiron. And you don’t think that kid grows up to be nominated for eight Academy Awards. It’s not a dream he’s allowed to have. I still feel that way. I didn’t think this was possible. But now I look at other people looking at me and if I didn’t think it was possible, how are they going to? But now it’s happened. So what I think of possibility, let’s take it off the table. The thing has happened.

Yooooo what's up Clara? I'm heavily procrastinating on the 9537383 things I need to to do but stiiiill. I wanted to see how you're doing. I feel like you don't get asked that often? Idk. I hope you're being more productive and healthy than me lol <3

Well currently I’m crying because this is such a nice message oh my god, who are you-

I’m going 120% right now between cosplay commissions, zine submissions, digital commissions, organizing the nsfw zine with Auri, and updating the cat au whenever I can. 

Being busy is actually good because it keeps my mind occupied! It’s stressful, but I want to give my all this spring, so thank you for everyone’s support!

I hope you manage to find the motivation to get all of your tasks done! I like to reward myself after finishing a task, maybe that would help? Have a great week!
