i-have-a-bit-of-an-alex

It’s obviously a bittersweet day. I think it will get better as time goes on. I’ve known for a few weeks now that my days as a Vancouver Canuck were going to be numbered. It’s a bit emotional, but I had a great run in Vancouver. It’s a great organization, and I have nothing but great memories in Vancouver. I have a lot of great friends that I’ve made on the ice and in the dressing room. Obviously the Sedins and [Alex] Burrows I played with for over a decade, and I grew up with those guys. Obviously Dan Hamhuis. I could go on forever. I’ve had a  lot of great relationships that I’ll keep the rest of my life. A lot of great friends we made in the city, through the kids’ school. It’s tough to leave Vancouver, but it’s also exciting to have a new chapter in my life and to move on to a great city in Anaheim, a great hockey team and it will be exciting moving forward and see what happens.

Prompt: 3x24, what if Castle to the “what about you Rick?” answered Beckett with a kiss?  From castlefanficprompts.


Oh, for God’s sake, he’s throwing Josh at her?  Castle doesn’t even like Josh.  She’s been studiously ignoring the reason for that, but if he’s going to guilt-trip her, let him do it on his own behalf, and not hide behind her father and Josh.

“And what about you, Rick?”

Go Crazy With Me

Okay. Here’s the thing. I hate to fail. So, I tried to create a context for the failure in hopes that it wouldn’t be that bad… Er… Yeah. 

Juri - I felt that the miniskirt made her look a bit like a hooker so I went with MMA shorts. Also, the miniskirt would create a weight painting issue since Juri does lots of high kicks. I wouldn’t wanna deal with that as a modeler, so there’s that too. Shortened her hair a bit. it’s very difficult to get her recognizable as Juri without the crazy hair-horn-things - even if you know and follow the rules of Juri’s costume design. Honestly, I dunno what to do with her hair without the hair-horn-things or something that creates the horn silhouette. Weird. 

Alex - “… Hugo comes to Alex and says, ‘I have a plan to get us both noticed.’ And, it’s a crazy fuckin’ plan. They find this goon woman named Poison…” Okay. I know Alex is supposed to be based a bit off of Hulk Hogan, but I thought it would be hilarious if I just casually tossed some Triple-H in there. I just imagined him doing DX crotch chops, and it had to happen.

Sean - This one’s pretty simple. “What would Sean look like on a street b-ball court?”

Chun-Li - More and more of my fetishes are showing up on this blog… No. I’m not going into any more detail than that. This is the one where I decided that it’s probably best to keep about three familiar elements (she was the second one done).

Ryu - I’ve always wanted to put him in a plaid flannel shirt. Dunno why.

On the bright side, I’m getting used to using that watercolor brush. Kinda.

TEREZI WHO ARE YOU, YOU WERE GREAT

I saw this in a forum and I need it here

“I got off with Damon before that show. I remember us going out the front and snogging each other in the audience. Then he went out the back and got a BJ… Damon’s gay, that’s all I’m saying.“ - Alex

“Men kissing men is good…I hate to say I’m just a straight male. It’s very boring. I don’t recommend it.” - Damon

“If I remember my first kiss? Do you mean on the mouth..or down there? Oh, yes, I remember them both.” - Alex

(about kissing men) “Damon and I especially have done that. I’d give him lovebites and he’d give me lovebites. A cruel trick. But it’s never really soberly. And after kissing him… it’s a bit like when farmers force sheep into sheep dips. When they come out the other side they’re probably quite similar to how I feel after kissing him. To quote Justine, he’s a washing machine mouth. He’s got a very large tongue, you see, and I haven’t.” —Graham

"Everybody shagged everybody else. Especially round at Donna’s.’ [in a Welsh accent] ‘We’re having an orgy.’ Hahahahahaha. ” - Alex talking about Elastica and Blur

“Suede’s song, Animal Lover is written by Brett Anderson after his girlfriend at the time, Justine Frischmann came home with red scratches all down her back after fucking with Damon Albarn.” - Love and Poison, Official Biography of Suede.

“I think it’s better if blokes can admit that they can have crushes on other blokes. I’ve probably had crushes but never really sexual crushes on men.” - Graham

“I don’t care who I snog, girls or boys. It’s not a sexual thing at all, it’s more of a header.” - Damon

“I think we all decided to snog each other that night, me, Damon and Graham. Damon was going, ‘You gotta do it, Alex! You gotta do it!’ So I snogged both of them. Male bonding. I like girls; maybe I’m just scared of exploring my sexuality. I don’t know. I would have thought I would have shagged Graham by now, or at least got a hand job off him or something, but there always seems to be something better to do.” - Alex

“I wouldn’t get a hard on looking at a bloke but I like the idea of bisexuality. I’m more homosexual than Brett Anderson. And as far as bisexuality goes, I’ve had a little taste of that particular fruit, or I’ve been tasted, you might say. But when you get down to it, you can’t beat a good pair of tits.” - Damon

You know why I love Suzanne Warren so much?

If you have not watched seasons 2 & 3 this might spoil it a little for you.

At first I was a bit afraid of her because she was a bit unpredictable, she seemed like she was going to do something terrible one day.

She did, she attacked Poussey under Vee’s orders, she attacked Piper in a rage episode, but that didn’t come from her heart. Suzanne is not evil.

She is never mean to anyone (unless you mess with her). She might be  easily influenced, but she is not dumb. Suzanne is an educated, strong, black woman, and she has been trough so much rejection and misunderstanding in life and yet she is optimistic.

In season 3, the rest of her group knows her better and they don’t fear her, and nobody should fear her. They consider her just one of the girls, they become more of a family.

All it takes is patience and trying to see things from someone else’s perspective.

How come everyone calls her crazy eyes?

June 19, 2015

Two nights ago was one of the darkest, scariest places I’ve ever been in my life.  I don’t want to go into it, but after quite a bit of panicking and spiraling and scaring Alex, I got a call from my bestest pal.  She pretty much talked me off the ledge until it was 3 am and I felt miraculously okay.  A few days later, i feel so, so free and happy because I have no more negativity or cruelty holding me down.  Things are good.  I don’t know how, but they are and I feel like I can breathe again.  More than that, I feel like my lungs are as full as they can be.

Here’s a list:

  • I’m moving out of my mom’s house in a matter of days
  • All the toxic people are out of my life
  • I really do get a fresh start
  • I get to use my dad’s car now which means my mom has 0 control over me (which is infuriating to her, as abusive dynamics are about power). Also, holla @ window/radio control.
  • SAID BESTEST PAL AND I GOT PLACED AS ACCIDENTAL ROOMMATES IN AN INCREDIBLE STROKE OF SERENDIPITY.
    • As in, we both had roommates but they both dropped us and we got paired together omg
    • She understands me better than almost anyone else and there’s no one else I’d rather have by my side for my first year of college I really am SO HAPPY
    • (That was the moment I knew everything was gonna be fine)
  • I went to dinner with another really good friend tonight after work and she understands perfectly what I’m going through so we talked and laughed a lot a lot
  • Alex and I went into the city yesterday so I could treat him to brunch and he in turn treated me to some pretty macarons (mine were lavender, earl grey, and pistachio flavored).  We ate them in the park.
  • I met some friends from my college at Roo!!!!
  • R and I have decided to build a Danny Devito shrine in our dorm
  • My dad came to visit me at work and made lame jokes and let me buy him a chocolate danish
  • My bff from work gave me her zines to read and they’re beautiful and speak to my soul
  • I am going to have a birthday party and the invitations have Ezra Koenig and pizza on them :)
  • I get to dance to Twin Peaks with the love of my life tomorrow
  • You guys are SO COOL TO ME THANKS
  • I had too much coffee today but man I’m just so happy this doesn’t seem real

I got knocked way the fuck down and the right people were there to pick me back up again.  (Life’s What You Make It by Hannah Montana begins to play as her backup dancers skip into my room clapping and singing)

This is why oitnb season 3 pissed me off so much...

Like we have the absolute cutest scene in episode three (and a lot of cute scenes prior to this) where Piper and Alex are doing the whole improv grocery store bit and Piper tells Alex that it’s so good to have her back and that she missed her so much AND THEN like three episodes later Piper doesn’t give a fuck about Alex anymore and she’s off with some other chick I just feel like this season had so much vauseman potential and could have done such good things with their relationship and it was all wasted in order to fit in a completely generic queer character that added nothing really significant to the plot

anonymous asked:

Hey, you guys were talking about a spinoff. Is that happening??? Who's it about?

Hey there!

Great question - I haven’t heard much from the fan base about this, actually, so I’m glad it’s still active! I don’t think you guys actually got much in the way of information about the spinoff to begin with? Some basics: Alexandra Edwards wrote it, it focuses on Cara & Lily and their adventures in Los Angeles over the summer, and it was six episodes long. Alex & I have continued to workshop the scripts a little bit, just in case the planets align properly.

Some background…

The lovely, Emmy-winning Alexandra Edwards - nonmodernist​ - approached me during our IndieGoGo campaign and asked if I was open to her writing something for the show, or being somehow a part of it. This was a huge no brainer for me! So I said absolutely and she pitched me a plotline.

I loved the idea of having an expanded world with a beloved character, but the biggest issue was money. We were inching toward our goal but we weren’t quite there and I decided to make a hard line in the sand: if we didn’t make the goal on IndieGoGo (indep. of any investors we might find), we can’t do an extra set of filming – we just couldn’t. Alexandra said sure and offered to write it anyway.


A few weeks later, I had some amazing scripts in hand and … we didn’t hit our goal, so I put the whole thing kind of out of mind because I had a crap load of work to do for the main show. I still liked the project enough to want to keep playing with it, but as chatter dwindled & I, sadly, moved away from it.

The ‘spinoff plotline’ will definitely live on via Twitter with Cara, Lily, and a new character, so it was good that Alex & I workshopped the scripts and did revisions. But since I’m not sure how much interest there is in it & our budget might be just about out, I don’t think it’s going to happen. Maybe I’m wrong. Would it be a good idea for you guys to chime in? Maybe a #CASpinoff tag? I just don’t know the interest anymore! 

Jack request! you’re at an ATL concert and you crowd surf. When you are at the stage and the security helps you down, Jack pulls you on Stage. Alex is like ‘who is that’ and Jack answers ‘I don’t know, but she is gorgeous’ you can take it from there!

AN I saw that Jack noticed you guys were singing Rick Astley at the concert a bit ago. I think in Sweden? Pretty sure that that was where it was. But anyways, I threw that in there :] Yo you guys should follow my Twitter acc ->Happinessfoleva because I have no friends on there and mostly I just comment on bands posts, but sometimes I can be a little bit funny and it would be nice to have friends. Also guys, I have never been to a real ATL concert before, I mean I saw them at warped (alaska) last year, but that was it. So if I get the order of things wrong it has everything to do with ignorance, okay? Enjoy lovelies xx

Your POV

Standing in lines at concerts has got to be a paid job. You spend so much time here that I could basically claim it as a second home on my taxes. All day in line just to see your favorite band up closer than you usually would. Now that’s dedication.

We usually sang some songs to pass the time. This time it was Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up. All I could think of is that we were Rick-Rolling them.

When the gates opened up, it was basically Hell. Hell for anyone who didn’t love All Time Low as much as some of us did. We were crazy, and we were ready to lose our heads. Sometimes I feel sorry for the parents that get dragged along, but at least they get to listen to some kick ass music.

This was a venue where the earlier you get there the closer you get to sit. Some people wanted to sit in the front so badly that they camped outside. I wasn’t one of those people but it didn’t mean that I didn’t want to be.

We wandered inside giddy from head to toe, ready to see our idols in person rocking out in our town. It’s one thing to listen to them in your room. It’s a whole other thing when they’re live right in front of your face.

They kicked it off with The Reckless and the Brave, one of my favorites. They got into the newer album playing things like Something’s Gotta Give and Runaways. When they play Somewhere in Neverland, I wanted desperately to crowd surf. I never had before. So I turned to this super tall guy that was next to me and asked him.

He agreed and now I was being moved along above people’s heads to Somewhere in Neverland. I tried my best to keep my feet away from people’s faces. It was really hard since they were basically throwing me along. I felt supported but also felt unstable, if that makes any sense.

They brought me to the front of the stage. Some security guard helped me get down, and now I was in front of the stage as the song ended.

“Alright, now we’re going to play Time Bomb next,” Alex shouts in the microphone. It’s weird being this close to them. “Who knows what that means?”

The crowd cheers in response.

Jack nods as if understanding what 3,000+ people screamed. “Same,” he giggles.

Alex just looks at him and looks away. “Let’s get some people on this stage!”

Jack immediately scans the front row looking for people and I feel his eyes land on mine. My heart is beating annoyingly loud and I’m 157% positive that everyone in this damn venue can hear it. Jack points to me, and I turn around to see if he’s pointing at someone else, just in case I’m imagining this. [haha get it cause it’s an imagine? I’m sorry I’ll stop now]

I look back and he shakes his head. So I point to myself and mouth the word: Me? He nods and I shrug. The security guard helps me up and when Alex looks over to see who Jack managed to find, he does a double take to see that it’s basically just me.

“Yo Jack, who’s that?” He asks pointing at me. This is a song that you bring people up for, why do you need to know who I am? I’m confused. So far Alex has three people and Jack has me.

“I don’t know,” he says walking closer to Alex, but taking the microphone away from his mouth. “But she’s gorgeous.”

My face goes red, and I’m sure I will not be able to function at all. Ever. Nope. I’m not moving from this spot. No one in here heard him except for me and Alex and I think I’m going to pass out.

“Here, this way, sweetie,” Jack sticks out his hand for me to grab it. I don’t know what to do. Is that me? Am I sweetie? What the fuck is going on here?

I hesitantly grab it, and he brings me to where the other people stand. Jack doesn’t pick anyone else. Alex picks a couple more, and Zack does as well. I glance behind me to look at Rian. I smile and wave at him and Rian gives me a friendly wave back. Weird. This is so weird.

I’m standing here in a line with lucky fans. Alex comes down the line to ask us our names. He comes to me, so I tell him. “Y/N,” I say. I look over at Jack, and he nods like he understands something.

“Alright, now I want you guys to have fun, okay? You look like you’re all lined up to get shot at the moment, and it’s weirding me out. Dance, sing, I don’t give a shit. Let loose, let’s kick this thing off!”

The guitar begins and Alex jumps in with the beat. I don’t know what the hell to do I’ve never been up here before. I look over at everyone else, and they’re just dancing around not giving a shit like Alex said.

I smile and start to dance around. I stay close on Jack’s side. Jack’s shredding it on his guitar, Alex is fucking killing it with the vocals, Zack’s harmonies are beautiful and his bass lines kill me, and Rian’s just pounding away. I get the feeling that this would be what it would be like if I was with them when they practiced at their house. I always wanted to be someone like that. Someone who knew them before it all and got to know the real them. I could cry right now, it’s such an overflow of emotions.

I wanted to stay close to Jack’s side, because I was the only one he picked, that’s got to mean something, right? Maybe it was just me wanting it to mean something, but I still didn’t want to venture too far.

Fans were taking selfies with the guys, and I checked my back pocket. Fuck, I forgot my cellphone at home. How could I leave my phone at home? Why do I do this to myself.

When the song ended, the fans went with the security to help them down. They got down, and just before it was my turn to go, something grabbed my hand.

I turned around to see who it was, and Jack was standing right there, awkwardly scratching the back of his neck. I cocked my head to the side and glanced over at Alex to see if he could offer an explanation. He just shrugged and turned his attention back to the crowd. Zack and Rian were getting off the stage, and Alex brought out his acoustic guitar, so I guess he was playing Therapy now. Jack didn’t let go of my hand, but he walked with me off stage just as Alex started his speech.

“Yeah?” I asked him as he turned around finally. We were on the other side of Rian and Zack so it was just us and this random guy to the side of us.

“Well, uh.” He put down his guitar and even in this low lighting I saw his face flush a shade of red.

“You know I’m missing the most emotional part of the concert right now,” I smile at him. He has something to say, I just know it.

“Never mind, I’ll take you back down there.”

“Nah, don’t bother. I could watch the rest of the show from right here. I won’t get my spot back anyway.”

Jack coughs awkwardly and looks away. He’s not exactly towering, but he’s tall enough so that my neck strains a little bit looking up at him. “Do you have a phone?” he asks me.

“Doesn’t everyone?” I respond. If he’s planning on mugging me, he’s doing a terrible job.

“Well I mean, uh.” He coughs again. “Can I- can I have your number?”

My eyes go wide. I never thought of this happening. Okay, maybe I’m lying and I dreamed about it at like 3 in the morning, but never did I think this would actually happen. “You want me to give you my number?” I ask him, disbelief present in my voice.

He looks away from me, and sits down on the floor.

“Sure I guess so, but I don’t have my phone with me, so give me yours.” I sit down in front of him, nervous of what to do, but he hands me his phone and I take it. I put my number in it and hand it back.

Therapy has now ended and I know that they’re going to play Missing You next. “You better get ready, you’re almost up,” I smile at him. He grins back and bites his lip. That is honestly the hottest thing I have ever seen. How I’m even alive right now is a mystery.

“I’ll text you when I’m ready, that good?” He asks me.

“Don’t bother, I’ll just be here waiting.” He gives me the biggest grin I have ever seen, and it’s hard not to melt into a giant puddle. He starts to anxiously jump around and I giggle at his cuteness. Jack picks up his guitar and waltzes out trying not to run like a little kid.

I’m having trouble containing my smile as I watch them go out there and play Missing You. I wait patiently for Dear Maria, and for Jack to come back. I wonder what he’s planning to do. I can’t help but grin at the thought of him. I didn’t think my night would turn out like this but I’m glad it did. So very glad.

I posted this on Facebook about a year and a half ago. It was a huge thing for me because it was the first time I’d ever admitted I was attracted to a woman. A bit over a month later, I came out as bisexual, and I have absolutely no doubt that being able to admit my attraction to Alex Kingston was a big part of me realising my sexuality. So if you see a girl you think is straight posting about turning gay for someone, leave it be. Maybe they’re just making a dumb joke, but maybe they’re realising things about themselves they had previously ignored or pushed down. When I posted that status, no one told me I was just making a joke, or said that it wasn’t real. If they had, I suspect I would have gone right back to denying my attraction to women. And that was a really sucky place to be So if you see a girl claiming to be gay for Ruby Rose, leave her be. You have absolutely no idea what’s going on in her head. You don’t know that this won’t lead to her discovering her true sexuality. And unless you spent years questioning and denying your own sexuality, you have absolutely no idea just how important that first time you admit it to yourself is.

Forever sad about the lack of Vauseman flashbacks in Season 3.

Seriously tho! That always has been one of the reasons I’ve loved Piper and Alex so hard, the fact that we had two different timelines of their history together: the past and the present. And it always was a great insight into their current interactions and made you so much more involved to discover bit by bit how they used to be. That was seriously lacking this season. That and some Piper individual flashbacks would have made the storytelling so much better. In my humble opinion.

Something just really fucking simple about Sense8 that just astounds me when I watch it is just the stability of Amanita and Nomi’s relationship. Like, every lesbian couple i’ve seen on TV has had that bit of instability– some lack of trust that the relationship is either founded upon (Cosima/Delphine and Piper/Alex for example) or comes in later (Willow/Tara in Btvs s6). Like, it’s really important to me that there’s a stable relationship on screen where Neets is loyal and supportive constantly to Nomi and the other way around. Representation is important. There are girls out there watching who have no real guidelines of what a stable relationship between two women looks like since so often that stability is broken (either through the relationships failure or a character death.). Just, Sense8, way to go.

anonymous asked:

Psst just so you know Alex Hirsch actually said that Stan would be cool with gay marriage. :D "Don't forget what happened in Vegas!"

I SAW, ANON! I SAW, AND IT WAS GLORIOUS

Really though, I can never tell where my tinfoil hat (it’s very trendy, you know) ends and actual getting around the censors begins with this fandom. I mean, we do have proof that Disney is pretty proactive on SHUTTING DOWN any visible queerness (the cute old ladies in “Love God” and Alex’s twitter grumblings that he’d have queer characters if he could), so that opens the door wide for BETTER READ US SOME SUBTEXT on a show that already thrives on little background details and hidden codes.

And then on top of that you add things like the Vegas Marriage tweet (I’m on board with people putting a Fiddlestan reading on Goldie, but I’d be cool with it in a more general panStan read too), that time Hirsch and Roiland did team-up art of Stan and Rick cuddling on the couch (nobody ships Stanchez more than Roiland. Nobody), all the way down to cute vague statements like this one (ALL the theories, you say).

I mean at the end of the day it’s a lot of circumstantial stuff, but it’s the kind of circumstantial that we know is stemming from a situation where we’re definitely not getting anything overt (again, and I truly cannot say this enough, Fuck You Disney), so you know what? Stan Pines is queer. I’m throwing down my gauntlet. Come at me, universe.

Hi...

Alright, so some of you may have heard but famous author of “The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod” author recently came out as transgender. He was once known as Heather Brewer, but is now known as Zac…and…I can’t even begin to explain how fucking happy I am for him.

Zac is my absolute favorite author. I love all of his books, have signed copies of all of the Vladimir Tod books as well as a poster that hangs right above my bed. I actually met him at a book signing of his a few years ago. He tapped me on the shoulder and said “Love your makeup” to me. (Black lipstick, the usual goth look) He really means the world to me

As some of you may know, I also came out as transgender back in December. But then, I went through a bit of therapy and realized, I’m not transgender. I’m genderqueer. I use male pronouns and I go by Alex. And recently, transgender rights has been getting a much better look in the media but now someone I actually know, admire, look up to. Someone who has personally impacted me….I just feel….so happy and amazing. unclezacbrewer…you’re so fucking awesome

Tumblr collective, I’m aware the photo on the left is making the rounds here; so I hope you’ll forgive me if I indulge a bit and discuss a little background detail. Specifically, this little goober right here. Way back in the fall of 2012, I sent some bead sprites to Alex Hirsch as a token of appreciation. I can’t pin down exactly what possessed me to do this (I’m not usually the type to send fanmail) but it happened nonetheless. Flash forward nearly 3 years later and we have what appears to be a Dipper sprite displayed on the office bulletin board. Now, it’s occurred to me that with all the fanmail he receives, this could very well be a gift from another fan. Even so, it brings me joy knowing how appreciative he is of all the fanwork that makes it’s way through the office mailbox. 

i feel like shit and idk why i guess its just one of those things sometimes but alex gaskarth is out there somewhere rn and he’s making people happy and he’s moochin around having a good time and that cheers me up a bit just knowing alex gaskarth is out in the world is enough to keep me happy to be honest
