internet...stop it

I get that some of y'all wanna “spread awareness” by sharing pictures/videos of dead black and brown bodies all over the internet, but that shit is not spreading awareness, its just plain insensitive and horrifying. Those videos and pictures are traumatizing and triggering, and very disrespectful to the family and friends of those victims. So many grieving family members have asked people on the internet to stop sharing pictures and videos of their dead relatives because it’s just wrong and disgusting. So could y'all just please try to stop yourself from doing that in situations like these because it’s not really spreading awareness all it’s spreading is that y'all don’t care for or respect black and brown people enough to not share pictures of their dead corpses on the internet

HARRY’S NEW DIRECTION

The meticulously planned debut of the single at 8am on Friday will kick off an Adele-style campaign to establish Harry as the world’s biggest male star. The superfan of David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney wants to be taken seriously as a songwriter and musician – and will distance himself from the teen pop direction of his former band. A source close to the star tells me: “Harry isn’t a typical popstar. This is an art rock project – and he wants to let the music do the talking.” Harry has spent months secretly ensuring that the music has a timeless quality reminiscent of Bowie and Prince at their peaks in the 70s and 80s.

He has rejected the current move towards dance music and his first release will, in fact, run to five minutes long. The song is so shrouded in secrecy that it is on just two iPods, which have no internet connection to stop hackers leaking the tune. Many who have listened to the song have been asked to sign legally binding non-disclosure agreements. Quietly determined Harry has been very personally involved in every aspect of the music, which has been produced by Jeff Bhasker who was behind the international smash hit Uptown Funk. My source adds: “Harry has written the songs and the meanings are very personal to him, based on his life. He has also been playing the guitar and the piano as well. He’s a very modest guy, but it was important to him that this music represented him totally.

Access to Harry is going to be severely limited during the international campaign. The headline-grabbing star is desperate to avoid discussion of his personal life, especially romances with celebs such as Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner and Caroline Flack. And he also wants to avoid any discussion about his relationship with his 1D band members, who he has seen just a handful of times in the year-and-a-half since the split.

Harry has agreed to appear on BBC1 favourite Graham Norton – but he will only perform and not join the other A-listers on the sofa of the hit chat show. 
He’ll also appear on US TV institution Saturday Night Live and give one in-depth interview to his BFF Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1 to coincide with the single release.

The source explains: “Harry doesn’t want to talk about his personal life or be asked constantly about One Direction. It’s not his style. He’s spent his entire life having his every move scrutinised. He doesn’t feel the need to do interviews or the promo circuit. There will be a couple of very big appearances to keep TV and radio on board, but it will be very limited and he’s learnt how to say very little. Harry’s idols are people like Bowie and Jagger. He’s closely studied their careers and that’s the direction he is heading in. He loves the sense of mystery they maintained around them.

Harry’s small team of advisers is led by his manager and close friend Jeff Azoff, the son of music giant and Eagles manager Irving. Also intimately involved are Sony Music Entertainment chief executive Rob Stringer and Sony Music UK chairman Jason Iley – a sign in the importance of Harry’s success to the future of the company. He is being advised on PR by Dawbell, the company that also represents Harry’s close friends and personal mentors James Corden and Gary Barlow. Stringer has said of the project: “We obviously want everything to be beautifully done, because we think he’s here to stay. Harry has stepped up with the vision of someone who’s authentic.”

I can’t stop 😖😖

but think about it: it’s 2009 and Dan still can’t believe that, out of all the fans who tweet Phil on a daily basis, it’s Dan who Phil chose to respond to, chose to skype with, to become best friends with, invite over to his home, and kiss him on his bedroom floor in the middle of a video they’re meant to be sharing with the internet. Dan can’t stop talking about the statistics of such a happenstance, the chances, and the unwavering and uncaring void of the world. Dan doesn’t believe in coincidence, not really, not, but he does believe in luck and he does believe in chance and he does believe that he’s the master of his own fate, and Phil… well… Phil just smiles at him, because to him it was fate, and doesn’t Dan know that it wasn’t coincidence at all? doesn’t he know that coincidence is so much bigger, so much more, than just a number in an equation, a statistic that amounts to nothing at all? Doesn’t Dan know that he and Phil were meant to be friends from the very beginning, that there was no chance of this not happening, that the universe was just waiting for the right moment to come along? Phil came into Dan’s life at just the right moment, doesn’t he see the magic in it all? Dan does, he really does, and he can’t help but to stare at Phil in wonder because surely, surely not, he can’t believe it, he can’t, because he doesn’t believe in fate. Things happen at complete random, and some people are just luckier than others, but also it’s a person’s choice that leads them to every moment in their life, every chance they pass up or grasp on tight. And yet, as Phil talks about how it was Dan’s chance, and it was something they both could have messed up, but that’s the magic of the universe because Phil is so, so certain the the world would have figured out another way to get them together further down the line, and another, and another, and another if they didn’t pick up any before that, and Dan can’t help but to think that Phil really did come into his life at just the right moment, that his test was his choice, but that maybe… just maybe… coincidence is just a little more magical than he thought after all

The Downfall Of YouTube’s Biggest Star Is A Symptom Of A Bigger Illness
The schadenfreude over YouTube star Felix Kjellberg’s sudden fall from grace overlooks a much bigger, more insidious pattern of young men testing boundaries in the angriest corners of the internet.
By Jacob Clifton

“The online alt-right is built on lulz, and on an insulated privilege enjoyed by people without any personal context for or historical understanding of the things their privilege lets them say. Rewriting Felix Kjellberg’s history to make him a monster — pulled along by the gravity of recent high-impact cautionary tales like those of Milo Yiannopolous and Richard Spencer — is investigative laziness that obscures a much more important fact: that “edgelords,” the boys and men who group together online for the explicit proliferation of hate speech and misogyny, will almost inevitably keep pushing the line until they end up in a truly dark place.

Because PewDiePie’s relationship to his following, like that of Milo to his own fans, is both a reciprocal system of validation and a male personality cult, we don’t diagnose it as anything out of the ordinary: We take it at face value, because “men are men.” We can demonize “them” (the ones who go too far) as an idea, continue to ignore them in reality, and then act shocked when their need for attention finally intersects with their ability to make themselves heard.

This isn’t about being right. Of course joke-racists, trolls, and budding fascists are wrong; of course they’re out of control, abetted by corporations who provide them with platforms to organize and speak. This is about understanding what lies beneath this dark side of the internet, and how to stop it.”

The sensational story of a ninja boy doesn’t let people calm down. 3 years have passed since the manga has finished and 1 month after anime but hot arguments in the Internet do not stop.

Strangely enough a stumbling block for fans are Pairings.
Recently fans of one of the most popular Pairings in Japan SasuSaku decided to release a newspaper about the wedding of their favorite characters.

They were followed by fans of SasuNaru who also agreed on a printed edition for their beloved couple. It will be a special newspaper of three weekly issues, where the details of the formation of SasuNaru as a married couple will be brought out.

A small alternative story tells about the events after 698 chapters, where Sasuke and Naruto together leave the village and for several years
search for traces of Kaguya.
Each part of the newspaper has its own heading associated with the history of pairing SNS. “Wind and fire,” “Sun and Moon,” “Yin and Yan.”

An epilogue of the story will be a small fanfiction application “Yours for an Hour” voiced earlier by seiyu Junko Takeuchi and Noriaki Sugiyama.

This will be presented as the reincarnation of their souls into the modern world, where, as Naruto promised in the original manga chapter 486, they will no longer be “dzhinchuuriki” and “Uchiha” and will be able to understand each other in the next life.

For an additional fee one can purchase sounded seiyu fanfiction on the disc.

 The authors agreed with Masashi Kishimoto on copyright and no claims on his part will follow.  

Planned release date - May 9, 2017

confession time!: yesterday I almost removed myself from social media because I was comparing myself to others so much that I’d convinced myself I was ugly and not as cool or interesting or whatever else as much as all the beautiful people that I see on here every day. I was sad but then became angry at today’s perception of beauty which lead me to decide no, I’m going to wake up feeling good tomorrow and leave all this negativity that’s been smothering me, behind. I have a ton of insecurities but you know what? that’s ok.. the person you’re comparing yourself to also has a shit ton of insecurities! this new world of online that we live in, filled with photoshop and filters and the need for followers and to be loved by strangers, is insane! and as unfortunate as it is that we can’t do anything to stop the internet, we CAN take control of our own mindset and happiness. I’m posting this in case someone needs to see this today just as I needed to see something like this yesterday.. you are just as beautiful and amazing as that person you’ve just compared yourself to! so stop comparing! always remember you’re fucking gold 💛💛 one thing I’m learning to love is my chubby cheeks and that’s why I have a smile on my face today 💛💛💛💛💛💛
