i've been meaning to post this for days

i don’t remember anyone posting about this yet, so

in the show, due to all the puppets being so short, the camera needs to be positioned quite low for them to be seen properly

which would be fine if there weren’t also two adult human actors.

so if ya want good shots of the puppets w more than just their head in the frame, that means knee upward for humans

which also means that sportacus’ and/or robbie’s crotch is riiight there in the middle of the screen. almost constantly. and stefán being so dang tall doesn’t help.

i feel like this is one reason behind the “sportacus/robbie is a sex symbol” thing, since in a show w/o puppets this wouldn’t be a problem

honestly if i could get one thing through library patron’s heads, like just O N E THING, it would be to plz i beg u never re-shelve things. .. .  even if you are 99.99% sure you know where you got the book from, even if you have taken 100 classes on how to shelve books. .. ..  i beg u. .… don’t re shelve the book

i c R INGE whenever i see people put books back

i cRY MYSELF TO SLEEP i have nigHTMARES …. .  do not … re shelve. ..  the book

just put it on the cart

the beautiful shiny cart that is just waiting to be filled

i tell people to leave books they don’t want on the cart and they always go “oh no it’s okay!” like bish n O IT IS LITERALLY MY JOB THE PUT THE BOOKS BACK

also while i’m at it. .. . please do not ever tell yOUR GOD DAMN KIDS TO PUT A BOOK AWAY!!!!!!! if i had a dollar for every time a kid ripped a book off the shelf to bring to their parent and the parent goes “go put that back where you found it” like ??????????// YOUR KID IS FUCKIN 4 YEARS OLD THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THE DAMN ALPHABET AND U EXPECT THEM TO PUT IT BACK IN THE RIGHT SPOT??? ?? ? ? ?? ? that kid might as well shove that book up my god damn ass i tell ya

tl;dr don’t re shelve books because i already know ur putting it in the wrong spot and i will personally come to ur house and slap u

IT’S FINISHED

I’ll post some of my favorite frames in a bit, but in the mean time yall should go give the original video a like bc I rly want a part 4! and also because the voice actors are super awesome and u should support them

I’ve never understood when people say that a fictional thing (a book, a show, etc.) has changed their lives.

A little over a year ago I wasn’t feeling great. I’d just finished a three year writing course at university, and a combination of essay writing about books I’m mostly not interested in (and ruining the ones that I am) and teachers saying that you have to get your work published in literary journals and apply for competitions because publishers won’t even want to touch your work if they can’t recognise your name. I loathe essays, and I don’t write literary fiction, the only kind of fiction this country seems to be interested in. I was losing the passion for the only thing I’d ever been passionate about, and the one thing I’d ever been half decent at.

Almost ten months ago I was becoming depressed. I couldn’t find a job - in editing, in writing, or even in hospitality or retail - and the government decided that if you want to be getting money for them you either had to be studying full time or applying for 20 jobs a fortnight. I’d only finished studying and there was nothing else that caught my interest, and there’s barely 20 jobs to apply for every two weeks, and that’s with me living in a well populated, urban area (I’d hate to imagine what it’s like for people living out in the country, where there’s five stores and nothing else unless you want to drive for half an hour). And of course coming into this depression was making the heaping amount of anxiety I already have much, much worse.

I was just losing the will to go on as I was, and I was mostly doing it for my friends and family.

At the end of my course I started reading Skulduggery Pleasant and my god, it was the best thing I’d read in three years. It made me smile, it made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me went to throw the book against the wall (but I’d paid like $20 for that book, so I couldn’t). It made me remember all the reasons I love reading and writing; to illicit such emotion is an amazing skill to have.

This made me feel great about writing, and I began my own novel as part of nanowrimo 2015. As of today I’m in the rewriting process (second draft), and the first draft had approximately 40,000 words; the most I’ve ever written for any project.

But of course we still need to fast forward a bit. There’s this whole, like, six months filled with some kind of depression and some awful anxiety and that one time I had a job for like a month but it made the whole thing worse and let’s skip over that part.

Let’s skip to now. Because of Skulduggery Pleasant I remembered my passion for my life’s craft. And if I’d never started reading that book and writing my novel, I’d never have applied for a screenwriting course at another uni, which we’ve been told is extremely difficult to get into; there’s countless applications every year, and there’s probably about fifty people in the (first year) class; I was part of the mid-year intake, and there’s ten of us, maximum.

Without Skulduggery Pleasant I wouldn’t be writing a novel I adore, or planning another one for this coming nanowrimo. I wouldn’t be planning my own show and slowly tapping away at the pilot, and I wouldn’t be planning two more with a friend I’ve made in this course that I’m enjoying so much more than my other one. I don’t know where I’d be.

I’ve never understood when people say that a fictional work has changed their life but now I do, because Skulduggery Pleasant has legitimately changed mine for the better.

With all the crap with Mercy and having to deal with the fact that he isn't a complete human anymore... How R!Hanzo wants to fix the things with his brother? I mean, R!Genji is a fucking bastard in my opinion, and he don't feel even a little bit guilty fo what he did to his own brother. With C!Hanzo I can deal with it, because C!Hanzo was destroyed when he saw wht he did to his brother. But R!Genji don't feel anything! (Sorry If I'm rude, I love the story, but Genji is a fucker xD)

Nah, R!Genji’s a nasty dude, sure enough–this is a generally accepted fact amongst everyone in the r!au, including Genji himself. Hanzo seems to be the only person who it’s not quite clicking for, but this is because he still feels (not completely consciously, mind) like what happened between him and Genji was his fault. And likewise, Genji also is of the opinion that what happened between him and Hanzo was Hanzo’s fault, and not his own. Genji’s not totally wrong on this front (as we know, Hanzo was almost certainly going to kill him if he didn’t do it first), but needless to say, preemptively murdering someone in order to protect oneself doesn’t absolve a person of all sin. 

However, Genji believes that if he was deserving of punishment for what he did, everything he had to deal with after killing Hanzo (and there was a lot of stuff to deal with) was punishment enough. He was pushed into a corner, he did something bad, and he paid for it, over and over and over again for years. So, he is pretty profoundly done feeling bad about it–or anything, really. He spent too much time in the crucible, and it burned him straight through. 

Anyway, being isolated and away from home for so long has given Hanzo some obscenely low standards for family, particularly since his time with Overwatch just made him feel bleak. He’s willing to ignore some foibles if it means getting back a shred of normalcy, or regaining some semblance of the man he used to be. The ‘foibles’ in this case are pretty extensive, but not everyone’s perfect?? I guess???

As an aside, with respect to c!Hanzo, there was a weird voice line during the halloween event (that I oddly never really saw anyone comment on) where Ana asks Hanzo what he’s doing so far from home, to which Hanzo responds that he was banished for taking his brother’s life, and can’t return. This sort of flies in the face of fanon, which paints Hanzo as being immediately overcome with guilt and giving up his place amongst the Shimada as a consequence of it, and the Shimada chasing him down for abandoning them. 

However, it seems in canon that when Hanzo killed Genji, his family responded with “What the hell made you think ‘straighten him out’ meant ‘kill him’??” and forced him out/tried to avenge Genji, and only then did Hanzo think “Wait…..are you saying killing my brother…..was bad????” after which point he did some soul searching and came to realize what a monumentally awful thing he’d done. Who knows what would have happened if he hadn’t gotten his knuckles rapped? The family not wanting Genji dead makes a bit of sense as well, since why would the Shimada have this whole dedicated shrine to just Genji in the main house if they’d been of the opinion that he got what was coming to him? Why not just give him a fake burial and be done with it? 

So I think Hanzo’s guilt over Genji was more cause/effect than him feeling immediately terrible about doing a terrible thing by virtue of his own moral compass. Which isn’t to say he’s still not a more sympathetic character than r!Genji, he definitely is–but he also seems to have fallen into contrition kind of by accident, rather than as a natural human reflex haha

But the canon seems a little wibbly-wobbly on exactly what transpired amongst the Shimada, with the wiki giving a version that’s closer to the generally accepted fanon. So *shrug*. I think what we can take from it is basically that the Shimada are just generally a mess, no matter what’s going on haha

OKAY so, usually, I’m all about like, long paragraphs, proclaiming my unnecessarily deep love for you guys, but I’ve realized those post are a bit much and there’s always sooooooooo many people I wanna tag but leave out so…

I’m just gonna say that, as a whole, you all are easily the nicest group of people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Thank you, all of you, for being a part of the community that permits me to be myself in the fullest form. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t feel so much appreciation for you guys so, again, thank you so much for being bothered with me and providing the companionship, different sorts of influence, and all the love a person could ask for <3

“Do you remember that dream we had as kids; for the three of us to go to Bangalore and have an awesome time?” ….SO WHAT THE HELL IS THIS.

“So… someone went and ordered twenty two pizzas again as a prank and the person they ordered them to refused to pay for them. You know what that means, right? That’s why I’m here to see you.” Milo said as he smirked gesturing toward the boxes behind him.

Confessions of a food service employee

Ok, I’ve been meaning to say these thing for a while now, and I finally have time to do so. I am only a hostess at a bar/restaurant, but let me tell you, it’s really fucking hard and tiring to deal with countless rude and obnoxious people almost every day. So let me give you some tips as to how to treat us workers like real people instead of robots and slaves.

•Our restaurant has multiple entrances, but we have one host stand up at the front. If you seat yourself without telling one of the hosts, we don’t know which server has been sat or not. If you didn’t know, that’s perfectly ok, just come up to the front and we will seat you. Don’t be rude to us if we ask you to move tho, we are just following rules.

•Please do not ask to sit at a specific seating section. You are here to eat food, not to sightsee. We also have to be fair to all of our servers and make sure they all have the same chance to make money. If we sit multiple tables with the same server, they will be overwhelmed and your service will not be good. Please let us sit you where we need you.

•If you have bigger parties, you might not be seated right away. We only have a limited number of 8 top tables and one 12 top table. If you cannot be seated immediately, do not ask us to move chairs or tables together. It is a fire hazard and we are not allowed to do so. Just wait patiently.

•Please tip your servers well. Seriously, they don’t make a whole lot hourly and the only real money they make is the tips they receive. They’re all very tired and are forced to put on a smile everyday for very ungrateful and grumpy customers. They’ve been running around all day in a hot restaurant and kitchen to make sure you’re happy, please treat them with respect.

•If there is a wait, we cannot make people leave their seats for you, nor do we control where your name is on the list. Yelling at the hosts will not make you be seated any faster. If anything, it will have you kicked out.

•If it’s a hot day, we understand if you want to come inside to cool down. But you aren’t gonna be the only one with that idea. The more people inside of the restaurant, the hotter it’s gonna be. Please don’t just sit at a table to cool off, you will have to stand in a designated area. Tables are for people who want to order food. And please don’t give us a hard time for it either, again, we are just doing what we’re told.

•Please drink responsibly. I know this one should be obvious, but some people can’t handle their alcohol. People become belligerent and obnoxious, and sometimes even violent. No one wants to deal with a drunk.

•Lastly, and maybe most important, please do not act like you are God’s gift to this earth! Your business is very important to us, but so is everyone else’s. You aren’t the end all, be all when it comes to a restaurant. We have to take care of everybody who walks in, not just you. Please be respectful and patient when you eat out, it just makes life easier.

If anybody else had anything to add, please do so. This is all I can think to say for now. But please, be a decent human being to people in the restaurant industry, it’s a medial and frustrating job and most people working only have this job. They need the money badly and will put up with almost anything to make it. Everyone would just be happier if we gave workers in the food industry the respect they deserve. This has been a PSA. Thank you.
