is what makes the show worthwhile

For all who have been asking me, desperate to know about the future of the show… it’s official! We’re coming back for SEASON 2!

And to be frank, the fans have been wonderful. Thank you for your art, your passion, your theories, your trollsonas, and your genuine love for our little animated series. It has truly made these last few years laboring away in total darkness a worthwhile endeavor, and the reception has far surpassed what any of us expected. While working in secrecy, we could only hope that what we were making, something odd and unique, would be embraced by total strangers in a world that many told us wanted the exact opposite of what we were creating. But you all proved them wrong.

From all of us at Team Trollhunters… thanks.

Okay, so I got this fic idea that I know I’m not able to write, so I’m going to throw it out for anyone who wants to use the idea.

So basically, a lot of times, with Nursey and Dex, when we imagine one of them visiting the other over the summer, it’s usually Nursey going to Dex, right?  It’s tough for Dex to go to NYC because of his job and family and yes, finances. But I’m thinking, what if, after they start dating, Dex gets the idea that it might be nice to surprise Nursey in NYC, so he starts saving with the intention being that if their relationship lasts until summer, he’s going to take some time and do it (he’s pretty sure the look on Nursey’s dumb face when he shows up unannounced alone will make the trip worthwhile).  And he has some ideas about what they might do, except that when he gets there, Nursey just excitedly starts rattling off the kinds of things and places that only New Yorkers would know about that he wants to take Dex to.  And who is Dex to say no to excited Nursey? And they have all sorts of cute moments around the city.

So, can y’all see my problem? I’m just a Michigan boy who’s never set foot in NYC, so I can’t possibly write this. But I really want a fic of it! Can I interest any NYC-area fic writers to do it for me? Please???

I’ve been thinking about this A LOT lately

No matter what happens with the show or who Emma ends up with, I’ll always love the freakin SWANQUEEN FANDOM! I joined Tumblr almost 2 years ago and all Swen - gifmakers, vidders, fanfic writers, meta writers, fanartists, etc on here have made my experience worthwhile. I don’t know any of you (outside of fandom stuff and occasional messaging) but I’ll always be grateful to you for creating fanworks for me to squeal over… for making me laugh with SQ memes e.g. “Unintentional”, SwanTown and “it’s porn”… for posting about SQ in general really. :)

So thank you so much Swen for EXISTING.

so… 2016 is ending (finally) and while it was a pretty shitty year, I’m very very very thankfull for the people I met and became friends with, so I decided to compile a list with my mutuals and pals and people I admire to show how thankfull I am, and how much I love y'all. You guys are what makes this site worthwhile.

I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn’t know you had inside you. And it doesn’t matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends… you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he’ll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you’ll go somewhere new. And you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.

So im seeing revitalized discourse on that Voltairine de Cleyre post and its making me think “what the heck is the point of "anarcho”-capitalism anyway?“

Like…theres no worthwhile incentive or inspiration to do anything meaningful with your life other than making more money and showing off how educated you are i guess.

I mean to have enough gall to appropriate anarchist rehtoric, you would think they would have any care for the people’s struggle–whether it be class struggle, minority struggle, gender and sexuality struggle, etc but every single one of them alligns/associates/identifies themselves the oppressor in each category of struggle.

Thats why whenever you see an ancap’s follower list or the notes on their posts, you’ll see they get a lot of attention from fascists, anti-feminists, transphobes, and other truly awful people.

Hell, i bet if the state never had a concept of taxation, they’d probably be in support of that too–yknow since taxation is such a great evil in ancap rhetoric.

Like what the fuck

At least with actual anarchist and other commie schools of thought, theres an actual purpose when learning theory or praxis (what praxis exists for ancaps anyway besides bitcoin and tax evasion)–its all with the intent of changing and understanding the world.

Ultimately im saying…"anarcho” capitalism is a truly pointless and purpose-less ideology.

Both Jasper and Amethyst feel disgusted and embarrassed that they come from where “bad gems” are made. Only for Amethyst, bad means “evil” whereas for Jasper, it means “of poor or inferior quality.”

But Amethyst has one advantage that Jasper doesn’t. She has friends to comfort her, tell her she’s worthwhile, and hug her when she feels bad. She has friends to understand what it feels like to want to be better than you are.

But Jasper’s already the ideal quartz soldier. She can’t show any weaknesses, because that’s not what Quartzes do. And Jasper, herself, especially can’t show any weaknesses because she’s from a defective Kindergarten. She has to show that she, herself, is not defective. She has to make sure that she’s the best she possibly can be. She has to make sure she fits perfectly into Homeworld’s place for her. Because I headcanon that Jasper needs to belong just as much as Amethyst does. But, unlike Amethyst, she has her own place already set for her. And she’s going to do her darnedest to make sure that she, and everybody around her, knows that she belongs.

It is about sex, there is obviously sex in a relationship. It’s not the intent of the song though. The actual intent of the song is that even though you have great times in a relationship, you have really bad times as well, but that’s what kinda makes it worthwhile, because you learn things and you got to experiences that bring you closer together. That’s the actual intent of the song, obviously you have sex and sometimes you fight during the relationship, so I did mention that on the song

XX Horror Anthologies Review

I got to watch XX last night, and I thought I’d share my perspective of what might make it worthwhile to someone else or not. To preface, I’ve been way stoked for this anthology, so maybe I’m biased in my assessment, particularly due to its completely female-lead direction. I’m always down to support women in genres where they aren’t usually celebrated. Also, I usually find that female horror directors/producers can sell a good scary story without the gratuitous use of ass & tits, for the sake of showing ass and tits. Or poorly timed make out/sex sessions. Or scantily clad girls running for their lives as hysterically useless as possible. The list goes on.

The anthology is comprised of 4 short films: The Box, The Birthday Party, Don’t Fall, and Her Only Living Son. I’ll break each short down by their “good” and “bad” and then give my final verdict. If you’re worried about spoilers, don’t be—I’ll try to avoid specific plot points, so I don’t ruin the fun for anyone else who’s planning on watching.

Ohno Satoshi. A miracle boy. An outstanding artist. A wonderful human being.
Ever since I returned from Japan this poster of our dearest Leader has been watching over my sleep. I am way past the age where putting up posters all over your walls is considered normal. But I need this man in my life because that’s exactly what he’s not. Ohno Satoshi is many things but ‘normal’ isn’t one of them. He is sleepy, bordering on indifferent in many Arashi shows, yet he’s the one who always finds the right words when it counts, who twists every situation into something worth watching. Be it funny expressions or honest tears, everything about Ohno seems worthwhile. When he performs on stage and it feels like he wants to greet every fan personally, wants to make everyone feel special while loosing himself in the most complex dance choreographies, the most challenging phrases. When he compliments the other members in that quiet way of his and their faces light up. When he smiles. When Ohno Satoshi smiles the world gets a little bit brighter. Ohno is everything but normal and yet he’s so incredibly real and plainly human that I sometimes wonder how he survives being what he is to so many people: an idol, a dream, a friend. There won’t be a single day where I don’t appreciate sharing a world with such a beautiful soul. Happy birthday Ohno-san. これからもありがとう。❤️

Knight of the Living Dead ][ Stefan and Mia

He hadn’t been at the party long. Just got there short time ago. Crowded. Louder than expected. Wasn’t sure he should have come. So many people in small space. Sort of small. Big if you counted the woods too.

Mia was supposed to be there. With her friend Kai. Wasn’t sure how he would find her. She hadn’t said anything. What if she was one of the people he couldn’t see? Lot of full body costumes. Probably not. More costumes that showed faces. Lots of people to check.

He didn’t see her yet. Went to look at the food and drinks. Free food always good. Stupid to turn down. Maybe there was something that wasn’t candy and snacks. Would be nice. Make it worthwhile.

Man in vampire costume brushed past. Big cloak and everything. He could see fangs bared. Didn’t look like a happy vampire. Fit the costume. Vampires weren’t supposed to be happy.

He looked back over at the tables as he came near. Another knight standing there. Full armor with helmet and even a sword. Looked real, not like his own. Looked like it could cut things.

He didn’t know if he wanted to approach strangers. Maybe just say cool armor and then go get a drink. Didn’t have to be a conversation. He came up. Offered small smile as he went to get a glass. “Cool armor,” he said.

For beginner photographers...


Theodore Roosevelt once said “Comparison is the thief of joy.” 

Remember this when you are starting out in photography. I think everyone should approach photography as something that brings them personal joy. It is a way to express how you see the world. It is how to express creativity. It is how to show people what is important to you. 

You should approach your photography recklessly. Take messy photos. Photograph everything and in doing so you will be learning what you want to focus on later. What works for you. What you find aesthetically pleasing. 

I think photography is really important because it slows life down. I can see I have done something worthwhile with my time and that my life is full. It helps me remember the tiny bee I saw that I would have otherwise forgotten. It allows me to contribute to making the world a little more beautiful. It shows my appreciation for the world around me.

Never be afraid to make mistakes. I have literally taken photos of bear poop because I thought it was interesting. Do not compare yourself to others. Your unique view is special and important. Just go for it. Don’t hold back. Photography is for you and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. 

Hey, EquestriaDaily Readers!

Listen, I know that you’ll be tempted to go check out Steven Universe now, since your blog is gonna run a sister-site about it, but you shouldn’t bother with it. Why? Well, it’s filled with SJW shit!

I mean, look at this cast! (From here)

Forced diversity much? Where are the white people??? This is reverse racism!!

Plus, you see Nicki Minaj up there? Did you know she is a feminist????? Gross!!

And if the reverse racism wasn’t bad enough, Rebecca Sugar has stated that the gems are canonically non-binary!

What the fuck is a binary? Who the fuck knows, it’s more SJW nonsensery!!

In a lady-heavy series, there’s gotta be something to make it worthwhile, right? But where’s the jiggly boobies? There are none!!! Zero boobas!!! The lesbians in this show don’t even have sloppy makeouts or panty shots!!! I wish I was joking!!!!!

And the title character doesn’t even get to date the Gems!!! What is this friendzoning bullshit?!!?

In short, this show is SJW trash, and you shouldn’t even bother watching it. Instead, I recommend the far superior Kill La Kill.

It’s the last day of 2015, so you know what that means–favorite selfies of 2k15!  Truly, you all make me feel so radiant, and I’m so lucky to have had each and every one of you in my life this year.  You bring so much joy to my life, and I feel as though I’ve grown immensely because of all of you!

Now you out there–yes, you.  Beautiful, worthwhile, fierce you.  I want to see yours!  I don’t care if we have never spoken before, I don’t care if you just followed me two days ago…I am talking to you.  Show me your favorite pictures from 2k15, and be sure to tag me in them!  I want to see your shining faces and bask in your beauty.  So bring on the selfies!

You’ve taught me how to love the world—the grass and the sky and the fish and the birds and the laughter of friends and the smiles of strangers.

You’ve taught me that sometimes staying put is the best thing to be done, sometimes waiting is all that’s possible—and it’s enough. I don’t have to be moving to be worthwhile. I don’t have to justify the space that I take up. 

You’ve taught me to sing along with the fear, to realize that when I’m hurting, I can make it into something for others. My pain is not so different from anyone else’s. I’m not alone. I can show others that neither are they. 

You’ve taught me that the world is not what I learned it to be. In fact, it’s far better—filled with things I’d never thought to dream up, people I’d never realized could exist. 

I hope that if I’ve taught anyone anything at all, it’s that things can be different. You can make them different.

Anyone can.
