if you haven't watched this you need to because it's fantastic

codex-chaotica  asked:

So all your posts about Nirvana In Fire are compelling me to watch it, since I think it's something my better half and I would like. Is there any particular method you use to watch it? Also on a slightly related note, do you watch Thunderbolt Fantasy at all?

LET ME FURTHER CONVINCE/ENABLE YOU THEN.  :D

I was careful to avoid any too-major spoilers here!  If you want to go in completely unspoiled, skip this, but if you’re on the fence, here’s a bunch of reasons why you should totally watch Nirvana in Fire!  (Btw, if you do plan to watch it, I would blacklist the spoilers tag, because I think it’s worth the effort! ♥)

→ You can watch it on Viki here!  Or DramaFever here!  Or on YouTube here! Basically, wherever you go to watch dramas, you’ll probably be able to find it. While Viki’s subs look the best of those I’ve seen (they got their hands on textless raws!), I admit the ads interrupting the show did put a crimp in the flow of it for me.  I would have cried like three times as much if I weren’t given breaks so often, so weigh which is more important to you or scout around a bit.

→ This is beautiful, beautiful series.  The sets are amazing.  The costumes are amazing.  The decorations are gorgeous, the details fantastic.  The people are stunning. Everything is just beautiful to look at!  SO MUCH PRETTY.  ♥

→ There are some great female characters!  While the male characters have more screentime/are ultimately the central plot, this is a drama that treats its women really well, they’re important and meaningful and varied.  They swear + terrify little shits who try to chastise them, they have such vastly different personalities, from quiet and calm in the face of anything this Court can throw at them to warriors who can kick anyone’s ass.  And they have relationships with each other.  They have relationships where they’re the central character.

→ There are EPIC PLOT MACHINATIONS BATTLES, where actions from decades ago are going to come back to haunt the fuckers who fucked innocent people over and YOU CANNOT WAIT TO SEE HOW SHIT GOES DOWN, once the main character starts stirring the pot.

→ Everyone in this drama is complicated.  Characters you start out liking may end up being poisonous snakes, but you’ll still have feelings about them because you understand where they come from.  Characters who make you uneasy in the beginning may prove to be truly vile, but you still understand where they come from.  There are characters that are too good for this world and you will love them with all your heart and want to marry them because they’re such a perfect sweet wuxia prince. There are characters that you’ll hate as soon you see them and never will that waver.  There are characters that you’ll want to protect, characters you’ll admire, characters that you feel compassion for, characters you’ll want to see kicked to the curb, characters who are too complicated to really put in a single box, and they’re all engaging and enthralling in just the ways they’re meant to be!

→ The main character is absolutely amazing.  He’s played by Hu Ge (who is super hot, too)(but also an amazing dork) who is phenomenal in this part, he has perfected this unreadable stare, where you can’t pinpoint precisely what he’s thinking or feeling, he gives nothing away, while being so intense you feel like he’s looking right into your soul.  Probably because he is.  His monster level genius is his greatest weapon now that he’s frail and sickly, he uses it to rip apart the corrupt Court, to expose every dirty thing they’ve done, to yank down every support pillar the two main Princes have, so that they lose their favor, so that Jingyan rises up, because he’d be a good Emperor, to put right the wrongs that happened.

You’ll love him (along with everyone else, who wants to baby him because he pushes himself so hard, he totally has a harem of people who like him best, because EVERYONE likes him best) because he’s so arrogant in his own intelligence, but he’s not wrong.  Just because he’s secretly a total brat about it doesn’t mean he’s not still the smartest person in the room.  And there are some truly amazing moments of his suppressed brattiness showing through!

→ Everything about Prince Jing (Jingyan), the least influential/ranked prince of the princes that we’re paying attention to.  What first gets your attention is that he’s stunning to look at, his costuming is incredible, but you quickly come to love him for his personality.  Jingyan is the prince who was best friends with Lin Shu (main character) and just cannot let go of what happened to the Lin family, he wouldn’t stop asking questions, no matter how much influence or favor he lost.  He cannot believe they were traitors, he’s still furious about it a decade later, this is something that triggers a white hot rage in him, and watching him struggle through those feelings, to learn to put aside the direct anger because he needs to temper it and not burn everything in his path with it, so that they can try to actually uncover the truth, it’s an incredible journey to watch.

He’s a military man, which means he’s not one for politics and he hates them even more for what they did to the Lin family and how no one could even talk about it because of politics.  Learning to work with the system while making it better, learning to trust this Mei Changsu person that he has no idea is the person he misses most in the world, that’s one of Jingyan’s most important journeys in the series and it’s so, so fascinating to watch.

→ And his relationship with the main character is ultimately the heart of the show and it’s so good, you’ll want to lay on the floor and cry about all the feelings you have for all the shit they go through.  Maybe you’ll ship it, maybe you won’t, but it’s certainly there if you want it, to the point that the actors IN AN OFFICIAL PROMOTION FOR THE SHOW joked about how Jingyan gave Lin Shu/Mei Changsu an engagement pearl, to the point of mock proposing in that promo.

→ Basically:  Come for the pretty everything, stay for the writing/acting that is top-notch and characters that will stay with you even after you’ve finished!

A Sburb Session: Some Must-Haves-and-Dos

I’ll never claim to be an expert on Sburb, especially after I failed so dramatically, but my session taught me a lot. 

1. You must have a Space player.

Without a Space player, you’re dead. Your session is dead. You’re doomed from the start, left without a single hope of success. You can’t create the Gensis Frog without a Land of X and Frogs, and no Space player means no Land of X and Frogs. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, you need to get out. Initiate a Scratch, if possible - get your Witch to break through the fourth wall, haul yourselves into a new universe with new possibilities. 

If you have no Witch or no way to create the Scratch then….I’m sorry to tell you, but you Alpha Timeline was doomed from the beginning.

2. You need a Time Player….or if not, a really awesome Seer.

Time players protect you from Doomed Timelines. That’s their role, essentially, to ensure the Alpha Timeline continues unabated, to, if possible, to keep the count of Dead Doomed Kids close to zero. (For that, I would recommend a Sylph of Time.) If you lack a Time Player, you need to be extremely careful. Any single move could cause a Doomed Timeline and you’ll have no way to turn back the clock.

This is why I recommend a brilliant Seer. Seers gain knowledge from their aspect; while the flow of timeliness may elude them, they could still gain valuable information that could mean the difference between Doomed and Alpha. (Terezi, for example, prevented a Doomed Timeline by killing Vriska.)

3. KEEP AN EYE ON THOSE PAGES HOLY CRAP

Pages are a fantastic class. In those advanced levels of Godtier, they kick butt like no-one else. They are an asset that needs to be closely watched and guarded from attack because, well…Pages start of weak. And let to their own devices, they will mess up. Horribly. 

Pay extra attention if they’re your Time player. Pay extra extra attention if they’re your Space player.

4. Enter with people you care about.

There’s no point entering Sburb if you all hate each other. Trust me, I know this from experience. It’ll only end badly. You have no incentive to protect or support someone whose eyes you want to dig out with a rusty fork.

Plus, they’ll probably double cross you.

5. Don’t forget your quests.

You have two quests in Sburb; the physically, external one that has you journey through your land, and the internal one that changes you as a person. Corny as this sounds, don’t forget to take some Me-Time. Session can get chaotic and its very easy to be caught up in the excitement but understanding yourself is vital to Sburb and your Godtier.

(Also, don’t forget about Prospit and Derse. Well. Derse. Don’t forget about Derse. Or more specifically, the people on Derse. You’ll wake up with a knife embedded in your gut.)

Anyway, while we’re talking about Godtier….

6. Don’t Godtier on your own.

By which I mean, ensure your friends achieve Godtier as well. The immortality granted by Godtier might only be half-hearted, but its enough to create a huge power gape between you and your co-players. There’s also a chance you’ll be…well, be left alone if they all die, while your immortality keeps you alive.

7. Be careful with those god-damn Kernelsprites.

Don’t prototype a genetically enhanced super dog, for example :/

I threw a piece of paper in mine. It was the shittiest guide ever but those imps were easy as all heck to defeat.

And….that’s it. That’s all I can think of. Aside from, ya know, don’t die, but I felt like that didn’t need to be said.

Happy gaming, my friends >:]

shadowfoxstiles  asked:

Okay so, if you had to pick a tv show, from all the tv shows you watch (I really love watching you talk about all your shows btw), and it would be the only tv show you could watch (ad rewatch) for the rest of your life forever, which one would you choose? And you can put why you picked it, if you want, cuz I'm sure you'll have a good reason! :D

I had to think about this one! But here’s the thing: my first instinct was to say LEVERAGE. 

And even after thinking about it for a while, I think my answer is still LEVERAGE.

Because Leverage kind of has it all: 

  • humor
  • smart characters, including
    • the team mastermind with a tragic past, who is in control of every tiny detail of every con but whose personal life is a total shambles
    • a scary hitter who doesn’t like guns, who sings and is a gourmet cook, and who has dated a LOT of women but they weren’t interchangeable dolls, and he learned useful and important things from every one of them
    • the genius hacker who is a proud young black dude with wicked fashion sense who plays violin and World of Warcraft and makes constant Star Trek and Doctor Who references, who avoids physical violence whenever possible and is probably the sweetest, gentlest person on the team
    • the femme fatale grifter/team mom is an aspiring actress who can’t act her way out of a paper bag—she’s just terrible—unless she’s working a con
    • the most notorious thief in the world, a cute petite blonde woman who strikes terror into the hearts of men 3x her size, who loves jumping off tall buildings and loves money more than anything, who is neuroatypical and who wants to be able to relate to people she cares about but who is also unapologetically herself at all times
    • Mark Sheppard as the good-guy antagonist you will love to hate and then hate to love
  • morally grey characters
  • thieves with hearts of gold
  • women who are friends with each other
  • a found family
  • a middle-aged OTP, both parts of which have their own journeys of self-realization to go through before they come together
  • a divorced couple who still love each other and help each other, without any jealousy or weirdness 
  • an interracial so-close-to-canon OT3 that can be shipped romantically or as siblings/best friends/partners for life (I personally ship them the latter way, but I can understand why others ship them romantically)
  • as part of that OT3, a young interracial couple who care deeply about each other from the start, but who take a long time to start their romance because that’s what one of the characters needs, and the other character is nothing but understanding and patient about it
  • two of the characters grew up in foster care, but they had totally different experiences, one negative and one positive
  • one of the characters struggles with alcohol addiction in a fairly realistic way
  • when that character is an asshole, they call him on it and tell him the drinking’s gotta stop 
  • the white middle-aged dude has manpain, but it’s for legitimate, heartbreaking reasons and it’s never used as an excuse, and in fact it’s highlighted when the manpain is clearly holding him back, keeping him from moving on and growing alongside everyone else
    • and yet this is the same character who, in his pain and grief and rage, forms a team of supergenius thieves and grifters to do good and right the world’s wrongs and get restitution for the little guys who’ve been screwed over by the big bad guys. 
    • the same character who says, in response to one person commenting that vigilantes don’t just give large sums of money to people in need, because the world doesn’t work that way: “So change the world.”
  • some of the most amazing character arcs I’ve ever seen, ones that stretch not only entire seasons but the entire series
  • seriously, one of these character arcs in particular* is mind-blowing and can only really be appreciated upon finishing the series and rewatching it, because you will realize that they were planning this all along, there are literally lines in the very first episode foreshadowing it [*note that link has major spoilers if you haven’t seen the show]
  • suspense (but not too much suspense)
  • complicated cons that are fairly predictable after a few episodes, but you won’t even care because they’re so fun and pulled off with such style
  • also the bad guys always get what’s coming to them in really satisfying, appropriate ways
  • and usually the victims are helped in a way that puts power back in their hands, so it’s not just the Leverage team swooping in and saving them triumphantly and then leaving them in the wreckage 
  • lots and lots of geeky references (including many Star Trek actors as guest stars and one as a regular director)
  • and I haven’t even mentioned how fantastic the DVD commentaries are, or how the showrunner John Rogers is kind of an amazing human who blogged about Leverage during its run and answered questions from fans, or how there were specific policies about never letting the women be rescued by men (the women always rescued themselves, or at least helped out in a major way) because Rogers hated the damsel in distress trope, or how many women writers this show had.

So, yeah. If I had to pick one TV show to watch for the rest of my life, I’d definitely go with Leverage. And since I’ve rewatched the series several times and enjoyed it more and found new things to love each time, I think I’d be just fine.

Thanks for the ask! :) And the chance to babble about Leverage, which I’m always about two seconds away from doing anyway.

Inbox me one (1) thing you wanna know about me.

“(Y/n), I wonder,” (Y/n)’s mother voiced as she walked (Y/n) to the carriage. “Maybe you could bring that young man around. The one that you’re always talking about.”

“Mother, I’m not sure how much free time he has. He’s very busy, being in the army and all.” (Y/n) tried to laugh it off and shove the idea out of her mother’s mind, but she seemed quite insistent.

“If he can’t make time for your mother, then I’m not sure I want you marrying him.” Her mother stopped as the door to the carriage opened. “Bring him around, or your father will never give his blessing.” They shared a smile before the carriage door closed and (Y/n) was left to her thoughts.

If you haven’t seen The Duff yet, you’re seriously missing out! DeanCas The Duff!AU.
(AKA: Dean’s parents are fighting and Cas brings him to his Thinking Spot.)

“How’d you even find this place?”

Cas shifts in place on his Think Rock, looking out into the forest. His Spot happens to be in a clearing, but not one so big that you feel exposed; trees surround the boulder in thick clumps, greenery pushing up from the ground and fading to dark brown in places frequently treaded. He shrugs. “I used to come running here with Virgil. Without fail, he’d always make a beeline for this rock.”

“Huh.” Dean settles and resettles, looking out into the trees and very clearly trying to abide by Castiel’s instructions to empty his mind and simply ‘think’. Cas knows it’s hard. He knows that when your parents yell at each other every waking moment they’re together, it’s hard to think of anything else. He also knows that Dean isn’t stupid, but is emotionally constipated. Hence, what comes out of his mouth:

“Yes, well, when my parents got divorced, my workaholic mother wanted custody of me, and my father wanted custody of the dog, so… I think that made my standing in life perfectly clear.”

  • <Kasey> Will smaller artists be treated more fairly with Tidal tha, say, Sporify?
  • <Jack White> damn straight. i'm aiming to get unknown artists paid so that they can make more music.

  • <Jack White> tidal is going to help a lot of artists out, i'm talking about the punk band that has 50k hits on youtube and doesn't see a dime
  • <Alan Spaulding> Jack, any recommendations on which headphones to best experience TIDAL?
  • <Jack White> grades if you can, anything but ear buds!
  • <Vinnie Vrhovnik> Will vault members get any exclusive Tidal content?
  • <Jack White> lots of things in the works on that, stay tuned and don't be worried
  • <Aly Fava> I think Tidal is a noble cause, I don't understand the backlash that it's getting.
  • <Jack White> there's a lot of misinformation about music in the last decade, people know that it costs a lot of money to make a super hero movie, but they don't know that it costs millions to make a country album too
  • <LazyDynamite> Will the release of Tidal help TMR grow as a company?
  • <Jack White> we want to get the music of tmr from the unknown artists out to as many people as possible
  • <Keke> thank you for being an advocate for all musicians, not just the ones who have made it.
  • <Jack White> glad you dig it, unknown musicians don't have a voice being heard, i want those artists to make a living at being artists so more great music can happen
  • <boyd5647> Jack, I really struggled to tell a large difference in "high definition" audio with the PONO player. Is TIDAL that much better?
  • <Jack White> depends on what you're listening too. ear buds and computer speakers are only good for ham radio as far as i can hear! haha
  • <Jack White> remember there was a culture of hi fidelity stereo audiophiles that got tossed aside because of computers being the new stereo. there was a lot of beauty in that, just like watching a nicely streamed hd movie on a wide screen television with surround sound
  • <Big III> come on Jack we're all asking about DW, give us little something...

  • I still support McIntosh : -)
  • <Jack White> well macintosh is great, but very expensive. there are cheaper, affordable choices for good sound for everyone
  • <MissELuna> I like the concept, I just don't think I can spend the money...
  • <Jack White> well i used to buy three records a month at 18 bucks a piece when i was a teenager bussing tables, i also went to the movies three times a month, what did that cost? same as today with inflation? hmmm...
  • <MaWaiDu> Jack this day 37 of a 40 day fast, any suggestions for my first meal?
  • <Jack White> steak.
  • <AmyPresley520> What are some of your favorite artists on Tidal that we can check out?
  • <Jack White> i want to get all of tar's music on tidal, so those songwriters and musicians can get their songs to a bigger audience (remember most of those artists don't get radio airplay) and i want them to get paid royalties for their songs too so they can live
  • <LazyDynamite> How big of game changer do you think Tidal will be?
  • <Jack White> it's about educating everyone. it could make a difference just like tmr has made in the vinyl world in that last 6 years, it starts with people who think music is sacred and beautiful.
  • <AmandaRae> I think Tidal is great for the fact that it will get more money to artists. After reading how little Pharrell from Pandora streaming off of one of "Happy." Really made me realize how little musicians just starting out must be making, when Pharrell only made $2700 off of something like 43 million plays
  • <Jack White> yep, whoever started the model of making a website get paid by big advertisers (youtube) and not pay that money to the artists GENERATING the interest, makes no sense to an artist trying to survive
  • <AmyPresley520> I totally understand wanting to help out smaller artists. My musicians buddies are all struggling.
  • <Jack White> but also bigger artists, medium artists, whatever, if PSY gets viewed 2 billion times and makes a couple grand, where did all his money go?
  • <Jack White> it's also very important to buy real records from artists you love when they are on tour, that but gas in our tanks when we were struggling,
  • <Professor J> Kudos on the Tidal release. For people who are upset over paying more for exclusive content through Tidal and not through the vault probably don't understand the extra financial obligation there would be to hosting such files/services on site. I like the idea of this both for TMR as an entity and for the artists who get hosed via other streaming services.
  • <Jack White> stay tuned, lots of things in the works i can't relay yet...
  • <macwacky> is the Reason the RRS never ventures into Long Island is because our traffic is legendarily so bad that it couldn't choogle?
  • <Jack White> @macwacky it's far away man!
  • <Jinxy’sDelight> are you stretching youself too thin lately?
  • <Jack White> always have, what else is new? haha
  • <Eketelle> What do you want to be when you grow up!?
  • <Jack White> just like you.
  • <Katie Kaz> I saw OJ at the Magic Stick last night. Fantastic show. Great venue. A lot of good memories/shows there. Any thoughts on its upcoming change over to an electronic music venue?
  • <Jack White> well they got to go with the flow
  • <Kevin Ringgenberg> Is this the Tigers year?
  • <Jack White> hell yeah you know it.
  • <Tony DeGenaro> boring question: what is your favorite venue in Detroit?
  • <Jack White> masonic temple.
  • <MaWaiDu> Jack, did all the artists from Tidal get along?
  • yes we did. we spent all last night talking and discussing ways to make it very cool. here's the shocker : musicians want you to hear their music in the best possible
  • <Jack White> way
  • <Jack White> ways
  • <Jack White> we mix on very nice speakers and systems only to have 90% of it be heard on tiny components that cut out half the information
  • <MrBigStuff> will you ever meet RobJones?
  • <Jack White> @MrBigStuff no.
  • <Yepsen> Any largely unknown artists we should be looking for on Tidal?
  • <Jack White> i hope tons. i want tons of obscure albums that haven't been digitized to be on there too. loretta lynn recorded something like 90 albums! how many can you acquire or stream digitally? 4? 6? where are the other 80+?
  • <Aly Fava> Which is why I find it interesting that you listen to your music playback in your car when you're working on records, or so I read.
  • <Jack White> digital in the car, vinyl in the bedroom
  • <Jack White> baby
  • <Mallory McClain> was the Nashville show with Loretta Lynn filmed? I'd love to have a DVD of that night
  • <Jack White> maybe....
  • <KatieKat> why are you so sexy?
  • <Jack White> i am just as god made me.
  • <Professor J> Does Tidal have any plans for supporting independent artists? I hear that services like Youtube will soon be wiping away independent artists vids etc. or they will be charging them to host their content....soomething to that effect anyway...
  • <Jack White> lots of ideas, but you KNOW i'm all for independent artists getting heard.
  • <Jack White> you have to understand something interesting; when we do a 45, just a single, with an unknown artist at tmr, it's a big investment in production and manufacturing. how do you get people to listen and buy that record so they artist can stay afloat? you can't get radio play for them, so that's why streaming is an interesting way to turn people on to unknown music.
  • <bloomooks> It was so special seeing you with Loretta onstage! So happy to have been there. I just read her autobiography
  • <Jack White> oh yeah.
  • <MaWaiDu> Jack, I have to speak to 200 highschoolers today about leadership, anything I should mention?
  • <Jack White> respect the people you are leading. they are as smart as you, they just need motivation and a central person directing the game.
  • <ry3313> jack have you considered adding an extra tier to the vault that includes tidal at a slight discount
  • <Jack White> patience....
  • <EJ Kopec> Tidal is a bit ellitest to be talking about the little guy in the music industry no?
  • <Jack White> what is elitist about it?
  • <Jack White> who's speaking for the little guy?
  • <MaWaiDu> jack, it's because everyone has gotten used to free and cheap
  • <Jack White> should movies be free too? how about food?
  • <kawhite> Jack did you enjoy your time in Brasil? Thank you so much again
  • <Jack White> i loved brazil are you kidding?
  • <BexicoCity> when you planning on taking a break? Don't get me wrong I love everything you're doing for us but I worry bout you wearing yourself out!
  • <Jack White> i have a few shows left...
  • <vcaicco> I think the idea of tidal is fantastic! My big concern is the exclusive content showing up there instead of here
  • <Jack White> don't worry, our vault world was here before tidal
  • <Jack White> gots to go y'all
  • <Jack White> thank you!

fxntxsticfox  asked:

Hey I always see the Hamilton stuff... Is the show out or is there a place I can start watching??? It looks so cool!

Hey! I’m really happy you asked because I want to share this show with everyoneeeeeeee. But sadly the only place to see the show in its entirety is on Broadway — it’s not professionally filmed (not yet at least, there’s been talk that it may be filmed with the original cast and I’m hoping so because it needs to recorded for prosperity for future generations) and we don’t want to disappoint Lin/the cast by doing bootlegs. The show will be out to at least October (that’s for when they have tickets on sale), and then probably will go on tour, so there’s hope if you can’t make the journey to NY.

But most people are getting the full fandom experience by listening to the songs without seeing it (me included)! You can listen to it all on Spotify, or on YouTube Act I Act II. Just listen to it in order! By doing that you can get the plot, everything that’s happening is being said/rapped/sang out loud. For new listeners (and old) the genius lyrics are great because it has who is speaking and also has annotations that give history context and also connections to other parts of the show.

HOWEVER, there are a lot of clips released for lots of the songs!! Burn, Yorktown, Alexander Hamilton, Helpless, The Room Where it Happens, The Schuyler Sisters, What’d I Miss?.

Also here is a 10 minute montage of a lot of scenes, and the 60 Minutes videos have a lot of clips too! (if I remember correctly, parts from Wait for It, History Has It’s Eyes on You, The World was Wide Enough). Also, probably one of my favorite Ham4Hams: 10 Duel Commandments for their Love for the Techies day - it’s not on the stage or in costume but it’s the full song performed with adapted choreography; it’s really cool! Oh, this is fun too: John Adams rap that was cut from the show, but LMM is fantastic and the cast’s reaction is so cute I have to include it.

So…yeah! Hamilton is totally cool. Definitely worth the time to listen. And if you do and like it, come yell at me about it. And prepare to have emotions about the founding fathers.
