anonymous asked:

Any mcr history new fans should know? I've been a fan for just over two years now and still have no idea who Bert McCracken was or what he did, so I feel like I should know about him and more about the band haha

Oh, geez. A history of MCR for the new fan…I wouldn’t know where to start (or stop) without running the risk of boring everyone following! Your best bet is to read articles (I try to scan as many as I can), and invest in an old/used book about the band. I personally like this one and eventually I’ll get around to scanning the photographs in it.

As for Bert, you can find some more info here. The thing to remember is that the entire band was abusing alcohol and drugs (prescription and otherwise) partly as a way to deal with their own anxiety and depression issues. As someone with depression and panic disorder myself since I was 14 (started presenting as young as five), and a brother that was addicted to intravenous heroin, I relate to both the band’s mental health issues AND I dislike those that try to keep people struggling with substance abuse stuck in the cycle.

Good luck!

Typical Conversation with Anti-Roman Smark
  • Me: I grew up in a home where local and WWF wrestling were on our TV every weekend. My step-father used to tape matches and watch them every Sunday afternoon before the territory system finally died out. Then, our family watched the WWF on TV for years. I was obsessed with G.L.O.W. when I was a tween and would try to mimic the moves with my cousins in the living room. I've personally watched local and regional wrestlers and MMA fighters in matches around my hometown of Indianapolis off-and-on for years, depending on how much money I had. When I moved out to L.A., I continued to attend local wrestling matches and started following NJPW, TNA, and ROH in its early days via downloads online. Now I live in New Jersey, where it's not uncommon for me to attend JAPW and other smaller promotion matches throughout the tri-state area. And I've been a fan of WWE for over 20 years, and occasionally go to shows, live events and PPVs when my money is right.
  • Smark: ...
  • Me: ::says something positive about Roman Reigns::
  • Smark: You're a joke! You only like him for his looks because you're a shallow fangirl who wants to bang him! You don't know what a great wrestler looks like! You should actually take the time to watch other promotions for once and learn what *real* wrestling is, you sad pathetic loser whore! KILL YOURSELF!!!!!1111!!!

Interview with the Vampire Starters
  • I know nothing of God... or the Devil.
  • I have never seen a vision, nor learned a secret, that would damn or save my soul.
  • The world changes, we do not; therein lies the irony that finally kills us.
  • I want some more.
  • And here it is. I hate you both!
  • Locked together in hatred. But I can't hate you
  • I was mortal until you gave me your immortal kiss.
  • You became my mother and my father, and so I'm yours forever.
  • But now it's time to end it. Now it's time to leave him.
  • I'll put you in your coffin!
  • Your evil is that you cannot be evil. And I shall suffer for it no longer!
  • Don't be afraid. I'm going to give you the choice I never had.
  • Evildoers are easier... and they taste better.
  • All I need to find you is to follow the corpses of rats.
  • Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminitely, and so shall we, for no creatures under God are as we are, none so like Him... as ourselves.
  • I assume I need no introduction.
  • Have you heard enough? I've had to listen to that for centuries!
  • I'm flesh and blood, but not human. I haven't been human for 200 years.
  • Most of all, I longed for death. I know that now. I invited it. A release from the pain of living. My invitation was open to anyone. To the whore at my side. To the pimp that followed. But it was a vampire that accepted.
  • And then I said farewell to sunlight, and set out to become what I became.
  • Forgive me if I have a lingering respect for life.
  • I go on, night after night. I feed on those who cross my path. But all my passion went with her golden hair. I'm a spirit of preternatural flesh. Detached. Unchangeable. Empty.
  • Whiny coward of a vampire who prowls the night feeding on... rats and poodles! You could have finished us both!
  • You condemned me to hell!
  • I don't know any hell.
  • You should consider yourself lucky. In Paris, a vampire must be clever for many reasons.
  • But you must know something about the meaning of it all
  • You'll soon run out of chickens
  • Where are we?
  • Where do you think, my idiot friend? We're in a nice, filthy cemetery. Does this make you happy? Is this fitting, proper enough?
  • We belong in Hell.
  • And what if there is no Hell, or they don't want us there? Ever think of that?
  • They had forgotten the first lesson, that we are to be powerful, beautiful, and without regret.
  • And as much as your invitation might appeal to me, I must regretfully decline.
  • Drink from me and live forever.

Hello there! Uh long time follower here in need of assistance. I'm a dude, and I'm straight. I've been dating this girl for almost 4 years but a few days ago he came out as a trans man. Now I was shocked at first but I've accepted & we're still dating. Does that make me bi? I'm not attracted to men at all but I love him so I guess I'm confused? I don't want to ask him because I'm too embarrassed and also I don't want to worry him...

the key here is that things like gender and sexuality can be (and oftentimes are) fluid to a degree. there’s not always gonna be a binary that things conform to, which is where strict labels get kinda hairy. you may still feel attracted to him in a sexual way (if you had before), you may find that if too much has changed you aren’t feeling the same attraction necessarily, but if you love him you love him and that’s completely separate from your sexuality. you can still label yourself as straight if youd prefer, or you may talk to him and see if that would bother him (and reasonably, it may.)

sometimes you have to step back and remind yourself that finding a label isn’t always important and that things are fluid and if something feels good and right to you, and both parties are comfortable, then it’s a healthy relationship to maintain.

Hi! So...I've been struggling with social anxiety, depression & ocd for years now...I dropped out of college, I abandoned my dreams (I'm a visual artist, writter & musician) & I have to pushed myself constantly to even get up the bed...One of my most dear friends that I haven't seen in years contacted me recently via Facebook & I'm dying to see him but I'm also scared to death. My social anxiety is controlling me now so I've been avoiding him...I don't know what to do. I feel so sad. Any advice?

Oh dearest, I am so sorry to hear all that. Fuck I can relate though, and I know scores more people who follow this blog would be able to place awful situations like this in their life. Social anxiety is hellish. There’s no two ways about it. To know what you should do, to be silently screaming at yourself to just do it, but just not being able to… The self hatred is enough to drive you crazy. Sometimes it doesn’t even feel like we have choices, we are simply slaves to our anxiety, and it hurts like fucking hell. Darling, I wish there was an easy answer. I wish I could tell you my one foolproof way to ease and confidence, but it just doesn’t work like that. And the only one who can make things better is you. And yes, you can do it. You are beyond capable. You have to take it one step at a time, like any sort of recovery it is a day by day process. I would gently urge you to meet up with this friend. Sometimes the universe hands you opportunities to challenge yourself, and in my experience, the outcome is always positive when you step up and impress yourself. Its really all about you. You are the one who decides how this is gonna go down, so do whatever it is you have to to make it as easy as it can be, and you go out there and you have a fabulous time. I’m wishing you so much love, support, and good luck! ~~Anxiety Cat xx

I don’t know how else to say this so I’m gonna be blunt.

I’m a boy. I’ve struggled with this for years now and it feels really good to finally come to terms with it and I finally feel comfortable with who I am. Please use he/him or they/them pronouns, thank you.

hi i'm new the val fandom on tumblr i mean i've been following him for years but never interacted with fans purely bc there's so much hate around (which i fail to understand like how can you hate the man?) but i'm a little lost as to what happened between Val and Janel and why janel fans were/are so bitter with him? personally i never saw anything more than a partnership like everything seemed so 'put on' for the cameras ya know? could you please shed more light? now that i'm here i'm curoius

Aha, right? My claws have wanted to come out for the people that hate on Val so many times, it’s unhealthy - you have the right idea.

Okay so basically, with season 19 of dwts came a whole knew era of fans because as you know, different celebrities attract different types of people. These people {generally teeny boppers} were completely unwise to the ways of the show and apparently missed the disclaimer that every season you’ll stumble upon a highly produced, resident showmance. {Now I think we can all agree that this showmance is of no fault of Val’s: if the producers want to twist something a certain way they will - you see what they want you to see - like seriously no one found it odd that they were constantly being hounded with shippy questions and packages from the beginning?} All of that and Janel actually had a boyfriend until like week 6, who she got back with for a short period straight after the show. So I think we can all agree, the romantic shift in their partnership was definitely ‘put on for the cameras.’

Now bearing in mind, Janel fans were mostly ‘new’ to the show they totally fell for what was being shoved down their throats, completely ignorant to the fact that the half of it was obviously fabricated in the name of good TV. I’m not saying they were totally unjustified though, because where Val would deny any rumors, Janel would seemingly add fuel to the fire with that elusive green heart {she’d literally have to be blind not to realize her fans associated it with Val.} Anyways, long story short, they were in absolute malicious conviction that their queen was dating V, so when things went to shit they literally went, for lack of a better phrase, batshit crazy.

Seriously, not even Sir Sleep was safe from their death threats.

A couple of days before the twist of events Janel had been ‘subtweeting’ Val about the girl he apparently wanted to be with him in NY - no doubt he was probably talking about Jenna or Z who he genuinely needed in NY for Sway - but alas Janel assumed it was about her, thus leading her followers to assume it was about her. Val seemingly responded to shippers saying that just because people look good together doesn’t mean they should be together to which Janel responded I disagree. And then all hell broke loose in which she unfollowed him three or four times before he got sick of the shit and unfollowed her permanently, all of her close friends unfollowed him, Peta, Maks and Nicole unfollowed her, they shaded each other constantly, and Val called her unclassy. {which she is, like, FIGHT ME.}  

So obviously her fans were mad initially because they thought Val had broken her heart. like a good ol’ episode of degrassi.

Janel has been shady since, she didn’t turn up to promised obligations at SWAYshow and the DWTS tour - claimed on instagram she wanted nothing more to do with DWTS or Val yet after months rolled by and it was aired on TV again she wanted to be ‘all up on that’. She tweeted out her support for Val and Rumer to begin with but after Rumer unfollowed her she began to show her loyalties toward other couples. She began hanging out with other pros again, Keo. And posted tbt’s of her experience on the show {including a picture of her in her rumba dress that her fans were bullying rumer about at the time because she just so happened to wear the same one. also promoted her fans bullying rumer by publicly alluding to the fact she was a ‘fake friend’ who hurt her more than val.} she turned up to the DWTS 10 year special looking for val who’d jet setted to NY after the show for an interview and immediately tweeted publicly afterward that she ‘gave up.’ Then after retweeting and favoriting on insta/twitter other couple’s voting information on finale night she claimed she’d been team valenrue from the beginning after they won.

Of course her fans, being her fans, failed to see the conniving/vindictive/attention seeking side of what she’d been doing all season and claimed that Val was simply ‘ignorant’ to her support. That he was ‘treating her like shit’ when all she was doing was being ‘supportive’ of him. {Obviously not the case.} We all know Val’s not going to publicly ignore a previous dance partner without good reason. 

So yeah, I hope that has you all clued up. I might have been a more bias person to ask though - my loyalties lie with Val, I’m not a fan of Janel’s at all. I can respect their season but that’s about it.

Have you ever encountered a shadow figure/ghost/demon thing that is tall and wears a bowler hat + cloak? I've found that a lot of people have, and it's freaking me out that I've actually been followed by him before. I lived in Atlanta with my brother, and him and his girlfriend - now wife - felt a strange presence in their apartment. I went back home, but the presence followed me and manifested as the bowler hat shadow guy. That was 4 years ago. It still scares me.

I’ve heard stories of something like that, but only stories.

I’ve encountered some spooky shit, but lately, it’s been the glimpses of a skinny shadowed woman, crouching in the fetal position in the corner of my living room.

Though, all is well
