i'm going to learn how to play this

wanna one as things i've heard at my school pt.2
  • Daniel: there's not a lot of things that make me gay but a man with chicken? give me a few pieces and we'll talk
  • Jihoon: you see that? *points at trash can* that's gonna be you if you don't shut up
  • Daehwi: you can tell me anything else but if you don't think dogs are adorable i'm blocking you on everything, calling your parents and taking away your invitation to my birthday party
  • Jaehwan: i'm trying to learn how to play "my heart will go on" on the recorder. this task proves to be harder than i believed.
  • Seongwoo: do i shut up? no. should i shut up? probably. i mean, i think i have to be loud and funny. none of y'all are
  • Woojin: yesterday someone told me that owls weren't real, that like they were a myth and honestly have you ever seen an owl? maybe they're right
  • Guanlin: i can count on my fingers how many times i left the house this summer... it's 8.
  • Jisung: when i was younger i thought quicksand, falling pianos and stop drop and roll would be much more prominent in my life. turns out the scariest thing was losing my parents in Walmart.
  • Minhyun: why is everyone at this school so dirty? mentally and physically? some days i'll hear someone talking about some dude and the next i'll see papers everywhere. i'm tired of being the only organized person here
  • Jinyoung: i just love wearing a sweater in the morning and then feel like the wrath of 1000 suns is burning me in the afternoon
  • Sungwoon: can someone just like you know, have a crush on me and like be in a relationship with me? cause like i'm cute and nice and i think i deserve cuddles to be honest

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

Jack, Alex how old were you when you first started learning how to play guitar and how did you keep the motivated to keep going? I'm 14 at the minute and I'm struggling to find motivation to keep learning.

Alex: I started playing guitar when I was about 12. I stayed motivated by learning songs that I was really into at the time with my teacher, so I felt like I was really accomplishing something early on.

Okay so Prince proposed to us in a hot air balloon and Bartender proposed out at sea underneath the stars.

If Business Guy doesn’t propose to us on a goddamn mountaintop I will be highly disappointed!

If I'm Ever Crying

I’ll take off all my clothes
Hop in the shower
Sit down pretzel style
And let the hot water run over me
Let it camouflage my tears

So I’m weeping
And coughing
And hacking up tar
But all I can see is hot water
All I can feel is hot water
All I can hear is a shower head puttering

I play tricks on my own mind
Forever and ever
I watch people go
I watch everything scatter
I watch water run down my face
I feel my hands shaking
I learn how to camouflage everything forever

A bunch of my friends and I have decided to play DnD. None of us have ever played nor do we know anyone nearby who's played. We've just done a lot of research. I'm going to be DMing. Any tips?

Hey, that’s awesome! I hope you all have a great time! And that’s my first suggestion. Your first session (or two or three) are going to be a bit clunky. You’re all learning the rules, they’re figuring out characters, you’re figuring out how to run the table. It’s gonna be awkward at times as you work it out. But don’t let that discourage you. As long as people are enjoying it- and that includes you- you ran a kick-ass session. So make that your goal.

Since you are learning the rules, I’m going to tell you the biggest one. Or, well, Captain Barbossa is:

You’ve got a couple of books of rules in front of you to tell you how the mechanics of the game work. Which is great. But also a little daunting. Read over stuff a couple of times, get a handle on things, but if you forget a rule in the heat of things? If you can find it pretty easily, great. If not, make a ruling, and stick with it consistently through the rest of the session. You can always do rules research between games, and it’s better to just make the call and keep the game going instead of dragging things to a stop to look something up.

Don’t get too locked in to a plot. Directing players is like… Well, herding cats would be easier sometimes. And it’s frustrating for them to feel railroaded. Set up your plot points, but let them figure out how they’ll traipse from one to the next.

A great tool of being GM- the luck roll. If a player has some weird request, like “Is there a (insert weird item) in the room?”, the sort of thing the rules don’t cover? Give it a luck roll. You roll a d20, the player rolls a d20, and if they roll higher, hey, good news! They’ve got it! (I mean, within reason. They usually can’t Luck Roll your way to getting your hands on Excalibur or something. Unless you decide they can! It’s your game, anon, you make the call.)

Because I know amazing GMs who will stumble and lock up when you do something like ask “So, what’s the name of that tavern?” This site can be your best friend.

If you’re feeling like you need a breather, the storyline is a mess and you don’t know where to go next? Don’t be afraid to tell your players, hey, ten minute break, go get some snacks while I work out this next bit.

Talk to your players a little bit after the session, find out what they enjoyed. Are they there for the combat? For cool story bits? To be all dashing and sneaky? This is useful, because it lets you know what kind of things they’re going to enjoy when you’re planning for next session. Think about an opportunity for every character to shine, because people like those moments.

I’m really certain that was kind of disjointed, and there are a lot of things I’m missing. But, most of all, have fun. Because if you aren’t enjoying it, there’s no point in being there.

Who else has tips?


Guess who just got back from her script read and found out that the next musical the company is doing is The Addams Family and that she was pretty much precast as Mortica Addams for the next musical, and that her as Morticia was a promise that had to be made to the actor who is playing Gomez as a selling point?

How to identify a Heathers song

Check for one or more of the following:

— There are at least four key changes, usually into really fucking weird minor keys (like SErIOusLy w hat the f UCK learning them on piano is a bitch?)
— it makes you want to cry for some reason (sadness, anger, joy, whatever LET THE WATERWORKS COMMENCE)
— you can’t play it around your parents because swear words are swear words no matter how gorgeous the harmonies (holy SHIT holy SHIT holy SHIT holy SHIT holy SHIIIIIIIIIIIT)

If one or more of these apply, you are listening to Heathers song. Go get a slushie.

You're making a dating sim? O.o welp I'm definitely playing it whenever it's out/I get chance XD

Haha it’s still have some ways to go! I’ve only fleshed out two character stories… I… don’t know how long I want each route to be… but it’s something I want to experiment with and learn about haha. Just want to create a fun thing for people to enjoy = v =)b

anonymous asked:

i'm playing dh1 for the first time and i'm honestly so glad about how lively and confident emily is allowed to be. like i mean obviously her mother's death and its wake have left a mark on her, and especially if you're going to be empress, you're going to have to learn to do things even when they don't seem fun, but she keeps carving out little spaces for herself, and corvo supporting her in that is so damn satisfying to see

Hi! Good to see you playing and great to hear that you’re enjoying yourself. I hope you like it further on as well.

Emily is an curious, inquisitive, endlessly energetic kid and I love her for this so much. She’s constantly walking around, exploring, commenting on things and asking questions, because even in the wake of the tragedy that did nothing short of ruining her life, she’s full of life and she just cannot sit in one place for too long, and it’s obvious she was always encouraged to act out of her desires to be a child and enjoy the relative freedom of action it provides while she still can.

The notes written by Burrows can be found relatively early in the game in Corvo’s attic, if my memory serves me right - and they point out, bitterly, that Jessamine spoiled her child and allowed her too much, encouraging Emily’s hobbies like drawing, but it’s clear that Jessamine simply wanted her daughter to have her childhood for as long as she can. Corvo definitely did try his best to make Emily’s days at the pub easier and as normal as they can possibly be. She shouldn’t ever feel left out, neglected and lonely, she should still be able to be silly, play games and have fun, and he will assist her in this whenever he can even if no one else at the pub do - he’s her closest friend, after all. 

Which is why it breaks my heart to see how she can get a little sheepish around him at times, as if she’s not sure he wants to play along anymore - but he does. If she wants to rest in his room because she’s too afraid to be left on her own, if she wants to play, if she wants nothing but to just sit with him when she’s doing her studies - he will always, always do that for her, despite the rest of the pub’s stuff somehow assuming that Emily might annoy him.

I'm sorry if this is hella random but I can't help but imagine Dark knowing how to play piano and learning the most complex songs he could just to show off

Fuck yeah he would, he’d get a piano into the lounge at the ego building just to casually have the egos hang out in said lounge and he’d just casually sit down and start playing the most complicated piano piece he knows as Wilford groans, the googles sigh, and quite a few of the others just stare in amazement. Whoops, he’s petty and will go to great lengths for praise/attention like that lmao

Nope… I’m done… I am SHOOKETH. It turns out that Ty Olsson, the guy who plays my favourite character on Supernatural, also voiced Ord on my all-time FAVOURITE childhood TV show, Dragon Tales. My mind has been blown, I’m just gonna go to sleep…

People are worried about malec but I feel like this is a great opportunity for them to show us how alec can also be magnus' rock. In their interviews, both harry and matt have hinted that going through tough things together is important as they'll learn new things about each other and grow stronger because of that. Also, apart from that, it's about time magnus gets his own storyline and I'm curious to see how it plays out.

yeah i’m not worried about them in the context of the series, i’m more concerned about how much time we’ll actually get with them, you know? alec is an important part of magnus’ support system and so there should be notable time devoted to their relationship when something so significant has happened to magnus. my concern is always that this show moves fast like clary barely got the chance to recover from jocelyn’s death and that’s with clary having the most screen time out of all of them. so it leaves a bit of doubt as to much how room there is for magnus, but hopefully what goes down will be satisfying.

but in terms of whether they’ll make it out of this rough journey okay, i firmly believe they will and that by the end we’ll only see them brought closer together – and that is something i’m looking forward to.

anonymous asked:

How did you get into witchcraft? Like how did you start to learn stuff?? I'm trying but there's so much info idk what's good

  • you’re going to start out with some things that turn out to be bunk. that’s fine. correct course, keep sailing
  • start small, start with something you’re interested in (I started with cartomancy, first playing cards and then tarot and i dabble with lenormand. I use tarot most often, and so it’s what i’m most skilled with.)
  • no one starts out good at this. we fumble, we make mistakes. an ounce of experience counts for more than a pound of natural talent (there’s a reason they call it a practice)
  • read lots, and not just witchcraft books. science, history, folklore, myth–put the why to correspondences, and where a correspondence doesn’t work for you, make your own
  • there are as many types of witchcraft as there are witches. what matters is what works for you, not how closely it resembles someone else’s craft
  • keep a journal, take notes, make a record of what you’re learning and experimenting with, what works and what doesn’t.
  • don’t poison yourself, make sure you know what you’re doing before you consume or burn an unfamiliar plant
  • be respectful and be courteous to people, spirits, plants, animals, and gods
  • little things can be magical, too. keep a penny in your shoe for luck. stir clockwise to summon good things, counterclockwise to banish bad. choose a scented candle to change the atmosphere of the room. use intention
  • if you feel like you’re not witchy enough, don’t worry. most witches i know feel that way a lot (myself included)

anonymous asked:

There are 5 episodes left until the season is over. Do you still think we will get canon bellarke??

Well, we all agree that their relationship is written and planned since s1.

Talking about s4….

I feel that Clarke made a move when she nuzzled him and if Bellamy hadn’t left the room, something would have happened, but the timing wasn’t right and he wasn’t ready.

I mean

Originally posted by bellsqueen

On that beach, Bellamy was ready to say….. something, or maybe he wasn’t but he thought it was his last chance. At the end she was the one who ended up confessing that he’s special to her.

1) Special has only been used in a romantic context on this show

2) When Clarke wants to tell Bellamy something important, she looks right at him. “I need you;  I can’t lose you too;  I trust you;  We need each other”

“she will see how special you are” - looks away because she has revealed too much (x)

After that confession from both sides (imo) they have been separated for two episodes. Both, 4x07 and 4x08 have been important for them, as characters.

The slow burn is painful and I’m like YOU TWO FUCKING KISS ALREADY. THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!  but I like what they’re doing with them.

I wanted them to find themselves again. They needed to move on, learn, let things go and be ready.  Writers are preparing them for the romance and it’s coming.

So yeah, answering your question, yes, I do think we’re getting canon bellarke. I don’t know how it will play out on screen but I know it’s going to feel real.
