most accurate thing in the world

anonymous asked:

I don'tknow if you already answered this but do you have any anime recommandation?

i’ve never been asked for anime recommendations in my inbox before usually i just recommend some to ppl that message me or my friends irl but IM ACTUALLY REALLY EXCITED TO DO THISSS -

okay here are 15 anime i’ll recommend to you anonie :)

these are in no specific order 


1: Boku No Hero Academia - character develoment? check. Non-neglecting of side characters? check. Bomb af graphics? double check. Loveable best boy? yep yup. Great fandom that collectively hates Mineta? yesh

2: Diamond no Ace - sports anime that actually shows the struggles of different teams? yesss. epic scenes that are so great it could be a meta anime but it still retains the basic functions of baseball? huehue double yes. the mc is such a ball of energy and genuinely wants to be the Ace and has so much development as a character that you honestly start wanting him to get that number? yes yes yes yes yes

3: Nichijou - one of the greatest work anime has produced. really its so effing hilarious and it really pinpoints the things everybody does in everyday life. like flip a police officer for mistakenly confiscating your boys love manga. accidentally stabbing your thumb with a mechanical pencil, the struggles of ordering at Starbucks or even..

4: Magi - a smol baby boy tryna bring peace to the world? check. fucking strong girl that can beat any kind of wild beast there is? heck yeah! magic? yup. loads of backstory that actually makes sense and relates to the arcs? checkity check. villiains that really arent villains and good guys that truly are the bad guys? ho boi yessss. a magical recorder? you got it. also the graphics are great

5: Mob Psycho 100 - another smol baby boy just tryna navigate middle school. blessed with amazing psychic powers but powerless in terms of popularity and friendships. truly such a great anime that teaches a lot of moral stuff and has A M A Z I N G fight scenes. our boy mob is such a freaking god and the art style is very different but so expressive 10/10 would recommend

6: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou - [Daily Lives of High School Boys] like nichijou, this is another anime that is at the height of comedy gold. every episode is such meme worthy. the main protag really isnt the main protagonist, so many puns, great side characters, and i cant express how much of a feel good anime this is

7: Bakemono no Ko - okay this is a movie. and when i say this is such a fascinating movie, i mean it. this really smol boy gets adopted by a bear after he runs from home. this big bad bear™ is actually so pure and best dad. the uncles are great and so punny i cant. okay, they also have some really epic sword fights.. i really cant explain this movie without giving spoilers lmao but go watch it if you want, you wont regret it

8: Hunter x Hunter - young fisher-boy and young assassin-boy walk into a hunter exam together, who survives? friendship.. and the newly acquired dads they found along the way [honestly go watch it, i was skeptical at first but i never loved anything more in my life] also the arcs are so monumental, really great plot and friendship!!

9: Yuri On Ice!!! - edgy ice skating and gay couples that reaffirm what love is? check. little smol bean yurio tryna act all mighty and tough? yep. amazing soundtrack? heck yeahh! great characters that in no way hate on homosexuals? you got it. amazing graphics? best boys? well dang, you got it!

10: Shokugeki no Soma - food. food. food wars. great scenes that have food giving you orgasms? basically a sports anime but about food? great mc that really deserves all the love he gets. when they tie a bandana on their forehead, shit is about to get started. food. food. food wars.

11: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - as i write this, i cry. this was so good and i was wary of watching it bc there was/is so much hype around it but alas IT WAS SOO GOOD I CANT. like two brothers? amazing morals? the fact that nothing is as it seems? kickass female characters. alchemy. the hype is real with this one, but its so worth it and i 10/10 would lower you down FMA hell.

12: Katekyo Hitman Reborn! - [also known as Reborn!] i found this by mistake and my life really hasnt been the same. mafia story. first few eps are just comedic and really dont tell you jack shit about the storm thats coming afterwards. holy heck, a main character that set standards for how to demolish your enemies? friendship! fight scenes that make you wanna fite anyone? so many powers that actually make sense? checkity check. friendship!!

13: Bungou Stray Dogs - hidden powers that main character doesnt know about? check. good dad dazai. another mafia story. a mafia boy tryna kill the mc because of his powers and dazai has become mc’s dad instead of his [okay i’m trolling lmao] but really this is a great mafia anime. theories. villainous characters that have been blackmailed into being bad.. really it has it all

14: Haikyuu!! - small chibi boy just wants to play volleyball in peace. “i can jump™” meets skyscraper black-haired blue-eyed god who rules the court. [trollingg] but honestly, this has to be one of the most accurate sports anime i’ve watched. spiky main and side characters that are completely adorable and its kinda hard not to get sucked in, but you will

15: Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! - gamer dude dies [by mistake] and on his way to the afterlife, he’s given a chance by a goddess to go to another world and defeat the demon king. grants him the possibility of taking any one thing to this new world, my guy picks the goddess [fukin dead] and whoops there ya go lmaoo. but no honestly, its great and funny and the explosion/action scenes are beyond E P I C. also best girl, Megumin, is there so you should def check it out


— obviously these recommended anime are in my opinion. im not some anime god but thanks anon for giving me a reason to finally do this *finger hearts* —

Tips and Ideas for Writing Post-Apocolypse

Writing post-apocalypse/dystopian future can actually open a large range of possibilities and original ideas but there are some things we should try to keep in mind. The problem with this genre is that is a heavily research-based genre, it requires a lot of information so a lot of things can slip up or be forgotten.

Limits of the Body - This is something that seems to be largely forgotten unless in extreme situations. Yes, humans are tough, but they are also weak. We have that balance of nature within us. People can keep going whilst in a lot of pain, but something like a headache could knock them senseless. I knew someone who got shot in the leg and ran three miles because he thought he had been hit by the brick. The second he realised he had actually been shot and was safe to do so, he collapsed in pain. Quickly establish what your characters can and cannot do.

Children - Children are more robust than so many people give them credit for, they wouldn’t make it to adulthood otherwise. Children are emotionally stronger than they are physically but many children have a lot more endurance for their size than adults because they have to keep up with adults. Two good examples are The Road by Cormac McCarthy and Lord of the Flies by William Golding.

Hygiene - Namely with periods and stuff. It is hard work keeping the body clean, so personal hygiene will be poor but people tend to stop caring at a point when they realise how hard it is to maintain. A lot of people would revert to old fashioned methods of vagina health as well, so people would use reusable cloth or diva cups. The only book I know of that covers this is The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.

Simple Killers - More people died of the Spanish flu than in the First World War (source). It is surprising how often it is “little things” that kill people off. An emotional death does not have to be all that dramatic, no bloody death or major killer. Something as simple as a small cut that festered will kill someone if not treated correctly. An asthma attack, diabetes, things we see as treatable would make quick work of us without medical aid. Also most deaths are really simple and sudden.

World Limitations - What is this obsession with guns and everything happening in the summer and unlimited cans of food? No, let’s be honest, none of these are realistic. Guns will not last, can goods will be snatched up by the shop loads, most natural disasters will happen in spring or autumn. Remember to do the key thing, make your world real and people are more likely to believe it.

Take a Page - Who are most renowned for their post-apocalyptic stories? British pre-1950s authors. Why? Their worlds are real, the possibilities of what could happen in those worlds are real. Some where and still are scarily accurate, they looked at the current and possible state of things, creating a world too similar to our own. Great examples like 1984 by George Orwell, The Death of Grass by John Christopher, The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham, Soylent Green and the Mad Max Series.

I buried this point in a reblog of one of my other GotG posts, but I wanted to pull it out into its own post because I think it’s important.

I think this movie contains one of the most accurate and sympathetic depictions of the fannish way of thinking that I’ve ever seen in mainstream media. This is not a movie about fandom, but I think it is actually more sympathetic to, and understanding of, the way people in fandom think and behave than 99% of TV or movies’ attempts to depict more classically fandom-associated things like fan conventions, fanfic, or cosplay. 

These are movies about a guy who uses music and pop culture to process his emotions and provide a framework for thinking about the world, and while there are times when it’s played somewhat for laughs (e.g. trying to explain David Hasselhoff to Gamora), most of the time the movies are as sincere about it as Peter is. Even in the David Hasselhoff scene, Gamora doesn’t laugh; she might not fully understand, but she recognizes how important that fantasy was to Peter and just tells him that she thinks it’s sweet – I mean, if you think about it, what happened here is that the main protagonist in an action movie described a self-insert fantasy to a “cool” friend and got a sympathetic and understanding response. When does that EVER happen?

(In a reblog addition to the original version of this post, katiekeysburg contributed a link to an article with James Gunn that suggests there’s a certain amount of autobiography in Peter’s use of fantasy as a way of coping with reality, so a lot of this is intentional.)

And it’s also a movie in which the action-hero main character carries around a completely nonfunctional (in practical terms) comfort object with him, and the other characters are totally supportive of that. (The practically-nonfunctional part is important, I think, because I can think of other movies in which the protagonist has something like a weapon given to them by a dead loved one, but I can’t think of anything else I’ve ever seen in mainstream genre fiction in which the protagonist carries an object which is only used to comfort them and calm them down, and is actively shown being used that way on a regular basis.) In the first movie, Peter’s friends don’t really get it yet, but even there, the only actual semi-derogatory reference to it that I can remember is Drax’s “You’re an imbecile” when he realizes Peter went back to the Kyln in the middle of a firefight to retrieve the Walkman, and given how little interaction they’ve had so far and the fact that everyone’s lives were in jeopardy because of waiting for him, that’s a reasonable reaction under the circumstances.

But no one ever makes fun of him for needing it, and I’m pretty sure that by the time we get around to the second movie, when they’ve started to recognize how important it is to him, his friends would be the ones going through hell and high water to get it back for him (as evidenced by the fact that Rocket apparently retrieved Yondu’s broken arrow from Ego’s planet while the planet was literally blowing up around him – I’m sure any of them would do the same in a heartbeat for Peter’s music player).

Even Yondu seems to have been supportive of it, because Peter’s confidence with the Walkman, and with playing his music out loud in general, suggests that Yondu never used it as a punishment – that is, he could easily have withheld it to control Peter (surely it must have been obvious that if he’d wanted to control and break the kid, taking away his music would’ve been the way to do that), but he doesn’t seem to have done that; Peter never behaves like he grew up under the threat of having his music taken away from him. In fact, we find out in the second movie that Yondu actually made copies of the music on Peter’s tape and kept it on the ship, presumably in case the original was lost.

In both movies, trying to take away Peter’s music/comfort object is shown as something that only really bad people do (like the Kyln prison guard, or Ego crushing his Walkman), and people show their love for him by giving him more music, or by letting him share his music with them, or just making sure that he has it.

I just. These movies, you guys. ❤ ❤ ❤

stonecoldkidding  asked:

Hi! I love animals, so I've gone vegan and started studying biology/animal psych in my free time. I wanna go to museums and other places that have educational stuff like skeletons, but my politics make me wonder if the stuff if ethical (1/2)

Was the animal killed or kept in confinement/an unnatural environment? Etc. Do you ever have this problem? And even if you don’t, do you have any ideas on how to get around it? Thank you very much!

There is literally no way to get around the fact that most animals in museum collections were either captive specimens while they were alive or collected through hunting. It’s simply not practical to pick up things that are already dead and attempt to turn them into museum quality specimens - roadkill or things that are already rotting have damage, and you can’t accurately study them. 

Here’s how I would encourage thinking about it: you’re not perpetuating any further death through your patronage of facilities with animal-based collections. With the advancement of technology, the scientific world has almost entirely moved on from needing to kill things in order to study them.*

The animals in the collection are already dead, but they’re effectively ambassadors for the protection of their brethren because they’re part of the collection. Their death has allowed scientists to study them in order to protect and conserve the ones still living, has let them touch the minds of of visitors and spark their passion, has given us a way to still value and remember the species we’ve driven into extinction. There’s a very solid truth to the educational mantra that people will often only care about the things they have personal experience with. The animals in these collections are vital for that, and I think it’s much more important to honor them by supporting the good they can still do for every other living member of their species than to boycott educational facilities due to choices that were made decades, if not centuries before now. Even if those specimens were held captive for pride or killed for a trophy, they are valuable and vital for scientific advancement and education. 

You can’t change how they died - but you can choose, with your actions, to support what that sacrifice means now. 

*Some facilities will still do collection trips, and no institution will turn down access to the body of a rare animal in order to study it in ways that are impossible while they were alive. However, these projects are often grant- or school-funded, and it is highly unlikely that your presence and admission fee or lack therof will effect the continuation of these practices in any significant way. 

  • Gavin: So, what's the best thing your baby has done so far, Michael?
  • Michael: Y'know... she's, ah... she's been breathing a fair amount.
  • Jeremy: Nice.
  • Michael: Shitting. Eating. And some pissing. That's most of what she does.
  • Ryan: That's... you've described the first year pretty accurately, yeah.
  • Michael: And she's even more so because she's premature. So they were like, she'll literally just sleep for a month, just to catch up.
  • Ryan: She was not ready to face the world yet.
  • Michael: She was and she wasn't. She felt like she was. She was a decent size, but, like, she was due fucking June 23rd, she was born May 24th.
  • Gavin: Ain't even that now. That's class. Such an efficient pregnancy.
  • Michael: They said it'll take her about a month for her, for Lindsay, to get back up into shape, so she can be, like, fully functioning again. And I'm like, look at that. She's ahead of schedule. You were gonna be having the kid, now you'll be good to go. Now make my dinner. I'm here putting in the work, y'know. I gotta go do my job. Remember when you were a kid, and your dad went to work to play Minecraft? And then he came home and was like "Ah, long day at the office. The commute into Achievement City is bullshit."
Q&A Saturday (Sunday, whoops!)

Struggled with keeping on track this week (that’s what happens when you’re gone a while), but here’s the rest of the Q and A! Saved some questions for comics, so sorry! 

(Not pictured: Dario screaming in the distance)

“Okay, I guess I don’t really know all that much. I just go by the tone that he talks to me in.” 

(Even if Dario felt ready, he worries that Garrett never will be)

That’s it. That’s the whole blog.

(They just wanna solve things peacefully but Garnet wants to FIGHT.)

Meet Kathy, the most terrible prankster!

What is Kathy???? What is Jaleena??? Who knows?? Cable is probably more accurately Questioning, or maybe he doesn’t really care to find out? 

Aaa! In the original world, they’re best bros! In Splatoon, not so much. They got separate worlds going on!

(Aaaa, if it’s easier for you, please write in Spanish! Yo lo entiendo Espanol! ; 7 ;  )

And I know Dario has a sweet tooth and an appetite for meat, but he’s very careful about it because he’s a nutritionist, but Garrett’s fave foods are whatever unhealthy food he can get his hands on (I think I mentioned that he loves frito pies? With Doritos, and cheese and everything) 

I think on dates, they probably enjoy getting takeout and then ending it when a smoothie or milkshake! (Which I gotta draw someday)

Yes, basically! A leftover trait from being a big brother to Zuri since he was young! He doesn’t overbear but he makes sure everyone’s okay! Buttttt it also leads him to being very self-sacrificial. 

Human Dario and Garrett, not yet! I’m saving that for a big reveal! Splatoon Dario and Garret yes! I have! It’s a comic that I’m going to start reworking on soon! <3

Waaaa!! Thank you so much! <3 <3 It always brightens my day to get messages like that! ; O ; You’re very sweet, thank you again and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy my blog! <3 <3

That’s all the asks I can answer for today! Thank you for all the questions! I hope you enjoyed this, it was was a lot of fun to do! Please don’t hesitate to send me more to answer next time and see you all next Saturday! <3

Thanks for reading! Bye! Love you all and have a lovely weekend!! <3

BTS “Run” MV Theory

The main thing everyone has been noticing is how Jin is not in the photo Jimin holds and burns at the end of the music video despite having been shown in the “prologue” video.

My conclusion–he’s dead. 

Throughout the “Run” MV, several shots foreshadowed Jin’s upcoming death. Here, the stack of cards that he built fell down and you can even see the look of worry on Jin’s face as he wonders what’s going on. 

After piecing things together (as much as I can), it seems that “Run” takes place prior to the “I Need U” MV. That explains why this comeback, the concept is carefree youth and even supported by the bright hair colors such as mint, pink, and orange and bold clothing. In “I Need U,” the concept is much darker with an overall gloomy atmosphere.

If you remember, Jin’s shots in that MV all took place in one room. 

It was all white and extremely tidy with ambient light seeping through the window. Remind you of heaven a bit, doesn’t it? In the room, he burned white flowers as a symbol of the chaos occurring amongst his friends and even looks out the window as though he’s looking out desperately at the members. 

There’s even a scene where Jin is shown with a flower in place of his heart. Because he no longer has a beating heart. He appeared lost and confused throughout the video as one would be if one found themselves alone after a sudden death.

Therefore, all of the tragic events originate from Jin’s death. The members, one by one, get torn apart as they continue to lose their friends and mourn over the deaths. First Tae, breaks and kills his father after losing control, and then proceeds to kill himself. From there on, each member begins to descend into their own path of misery as we can see from the scene where Jungkook is trying to help out an extremely drunk Yoongi. 

Jin was Peter Pan and without him, the Lost Boys truly did become lost. There are also scenes alluding to the events that happen later on in “I Need U”:

Namjoon shown with a lollipop just like the one who had at the gas station–

Jimin being pushed into the bathtub–

Jungkook staring at the car–

Taehyung thrashing around in the water–

Hoseok in the hospital for narcoleptic treatment– 

Jin being outlined like a corpse at a crime scene–

Again, this means that “Run” took place first, the prologue second (past the beginning scene), and “I Need U” last (minus the group shots). That’s why, in the prologue, when Taehyung’s about to jump off, Jin can’t do anything to stop him and can only record him because he’s not actually there with them.

Everything he sees is from a camcorder, basically an illusion where he can watch them but cannot actually be there alongside them. Before jumping, Tae even smiles at Jin as if he’s glad to finally be able to join him…

…on the other side.

So, in other words:

Everyone. Is. Dead.

Thanks Big Hit…

Safe - Negan x Reader

No one asked for it, but I love the A/B/O dynamic and it is seriously lacking in TWD fandom, so here’s some Alpha!Negan x Omega!Reader. 

Disclaimer: i’m honestly a piece of garbage so i’m sorry if my writings aren’t 110% accurate, but i used @kittenofdoomage‘s ABO RULES to base this off of. (i love her)

Warnings: A/B/O, mentions of death, typical Negan things (swearing and such)

[part two]


Never before in your life had you been surrounded by so many Alphas, especially since the world ended. Most groups you had been a part of, even Alexandria, were majority Beta, which reflected the population of the world before the dead started walking. You were sat on your knees, lined up next to your friends as you all stared at the RV in front of you. You took the chance to peek over at Rick, and your heart broke as you took in his features. He was one of the first Alphas to actually treat you with respect; he even saved you from an Alpha that was the total opposite of Rick. You were the only Omega in the group—he the only Alpha—and while nothing “romantic” ever happened between the two of you, you both felt some sort of responsibility to each other.

World-Building 102 - Creating a Culture

Hey y’all, Abby here with another writing post! Today, we’re going to be talking about culture and how to create one for your world. (Lots of questions today.)

Consider the social hierarchy.
Is it based on wealth? Race? Political favor? How complex is it, and can a person easily move through its levels? Do people of higher levels within the society get certain privileges? Can people between different classes marry (if so, what happens to their rank?)? How easy is the system to understand? Can anyone understand it, or is it something that must be studied? Are there common jobs among each class? Are these ranks instituted?

What about government?
How complex is that? What form is it? Democracy, republic (there is a difference), monarchy, socialist, communist, totalitarian? (Of course there are more forms than the ones listed here.) Or is it one you created yourself? How does it work? How many people are in charge and how did they get there? What role to the common people play in the government and what is it? Are there often government scandals? If so, are they widely known or kept on the down-low? Is political power more associated with wealth or popularity? What are the most common/popular political opinions? How strongly do people feel about them?

mbtimom  asked:

As someone who discovered the cognitive functions closer to middle age, I find it very difficult to determine which functions I use dominantly since I seem to have developed them all to varying degrees throughout my life. Do you have any advice for older adults or some insight on how each type would look later in maturity?

(Gif: if you don’t recognize this, we can’t be friends. :P)

Right, so we’ll do a brief how-to if you’re not sure between functions.

Presuming you have a solid understanding of exactly what the functions do, and how they differ from one another, ask yourself what you need zero time to process with.

Can you react lickety split to your sensory environment (Se) or do you need time alone to process sensory elements (Si)?

Does your brain zip to an immediate intuitive response / theory or run with other people’s ideas without needing time to process (Ne) or do you need alone time to intuit or process ideas (Ni)?

When presented with a problem, is your logical reaction immediate and based on observances you can point out to others (Te) or do you need to sit down, shut other people out, and go inside your mind (Ti) to problem-solve?

When presented with an emotional situation, do you immediately assess and process the feelings as they happen (Fe) or do you need alone time to decide what you are feeling and inclined to not-articulate it (Fi)?

So, you know your functions, but which order?

You know your functions, but you use them all, with moderate degrees of strength. Totally normal for someone who is mature. But, which ones would you spend a day alone with, cuddled up on the couch with ice cream? Which ones DRIVE you, but in a no-pressure kind of way? Which ones REJUVENATE YOU when you use only that one?

Lemme make this easy for you.

Xi-dom: relaxes by delving inside their mind, to the core of themselves. (Ni: how do I intuit the world? Si: how do I interpret the world through my senses? Ti: how do I see logic? Fi: how do I see ethics?)

Xe-dom: relaxes by engaging or impacting the external environment. (Te: organization; Fe: emotional expression; Ne: ideas-gathering and discussion of what lies behind something; Se: sensory exploration, new experiences, action.)

Mature:

ESFJ: I use my natural abilities with people and my deep understanding of how the world works to open myself and others up to new perspectives and ideas, without forgetting to check myself on a logical basis.

ISFJ: I continually open myself up to new experiences and ideas, and have come into a full awareness of who I am and my own creative potential.

ENFJ: I share my vision with others in order to get them on board, while seeking opportunities to act to carry me toward my desired end, without forgetting to check whether my vision is realistic or not.

INFJ: I continually open myself up to sensory experiences in a healthy way, rather than binging on occasion or doing things I regret; I have learned to do research, ask questions, and rely on sensory input rather than going off my first instinct (which sometimes can be incorrect).

ESTJ: While I am not naturally adept at handling emotions, I have learned their importance to myself and others, and strive to live in such a way that I feel good in my decisions and devote my time, ideas, and energy toward things that matter. I use my wit and zany sense of humor to bond with others.

ISTJ: I have learned to open myself up to new experiences, while never losing track of who I am, where I have come from, or what is “tried and true” in life; I no longer dismiss the intangible as nonsense, but see the value in new concepts and ideas. I can take them and work with the details toward a better world.

ENTJ: While I am not naturally adept at handling emotions, I have learned their importance to myself and others and strive to align my personal values with my visionary goals. I have learned the value of human connections and pacing so I no longer over-extend myself and focus on seeing immediate possibilities as well as creating futuristic insights.

INTJ: I no longer wait on the sidelines of life but actively engage with my environment and the world to make my visions a reality. I continually open myself up to sensory experiences and make fewer destructive “impulse” decisions in my low points. I have learned to rely on sensory input, knowledge, and research to help fill in the gaps with my intuitive thinking rather than just relying on “instinct.”

ESFP: My instinct is still spontaneous and impulse, but I have learned to make decisions based on what I truly want in life, rather than on my first instinct. I have sorted out who I am and what I want in life, and have set workable goals to get there. I self-motivate  by reflecting weekly on my dream, and envisioning what I need to do to get there.

ISFP: I have learned to use my strong sense of independence and my desire to impact the world to accomplish greater things; I study up on ways to bring about my dreams, rather than just longing for them, through forcing myself to finish important tasks that will take me where I want to go in life.

ENFP: I no longer blow through projects, people, or ideas with gusto and leave them half finished, but have learned to take my time, the importance of details, and to set realistic short-term goals for myself. I do not reflect on the negative elements of my life except to motivate me to make better decisions next time. I routinely check myself, to determine if my perceptions about others’ motives are realistic or accurate.

INFP: I have learned the value of profit from my hard work, and figured out how to turn my passions into a way to impact the world or make a living from it. I have learned to not take things too personally, and to ask questions to determine what other people intend, rather than leaping to conclusions. I spend less time longing for the past, and more time finishing my projects, so I can move toward what I want most in life.

ESTP: I have learned the value of establishing genuine relationships with others and not losing interest in them when my focus wanes. I have developed a vision of what I want for the future, and make decisions based on what will get me there, rather than following every sensory impulse.

ISTP: I value human relationships and others’ feelings, even though I do not always understand the rationality behind their decisions. I am motivated not through feelings of praise, but genuine concern and affection for others. I shift my life toward a greater ideal, goal, or vision of what I want from the future.

ENTP: I have learned to focus my attention for longer periods of time on developing individual ideas into something tangible, and not chase every new idea that comes along. I no longer correct, intimidate, or devalue others’ poor logic, because I genuinely value my relationships with other people.

INTP: I realize that others cannot always follow my thinking, and have learned how to enable detailed explanations in order to make my ideas clearer. I may not understand others’ emotions but have learned to respect them, and not devalue their feelings. I seek to create emotional bonds with others, rather than seeing them as something to continually analyze.

Will Poulter: ENFJ

“I think being part of projects like Detroit has certainly increased my appetite to be part of films that are socially impactful.

Just as a response to what is going on from a socio-political standpoint. As a creative I want to try and do things that impact the world in the right way.

There is a lot to be said for films that are just purely entertaining, and offer people escapism from reality.

But I think the most rewarding films to be a part of, and to be the recipient of, are those that make an accurate and impactful comment on the real world.”

[Interview]B.A.P Brings Party Baby Tour Stateside, Talks 'Wake Me Up': 'We Are Part of the Current Generation'

From the first moment of “Hurricane” to the final note of their encore performance of “Bang X2,” Korean boy band B.A.P hyped up the crowd at New York City’s Terminal 5 on Saturday (April 8) night. The second stop during the US leg of their 2017 Party Baby world tour, the set list was built around the group’s most danceable songs to create a club-like environment where the band and their fans, known collectively as BABY, could party it up and revel in the group’s artistry.

Water guns, a costume contest, and a handful of solo sets – beginning with the two youngest, Jongup and Zelo, each of whom showed immense growth as singers since their last visit to New York – helped set a festive, intimate tone for the night, which saw B.A.P radiate with joy throughout as fans cheered and danced along with their high-energy performances. There was certainly a lot to celebrate on this latest tour, which was the group’s fourth throughout their time together: Five years into their career, B.A.P has seen multiple No. 1 albums on the World Albums Chart, including last year’s Noir. More recently, the group returned with their Rose EP and the profound single “Wake Me Up” in March, their first new music since rapper-songwriter Bang Yongguk returned after taking a break last year from B.A.P’s promotions due to mental health-related issues.

Billboard sat down with the K-pop act (Zelo, Bang Yong Guk, Him Chan, Dae Hyun, Young Jae and Jong Up) ahead of their New York show to discuss their latest releases and what makes the Party Baby tour a new experience for B.A.P and their fans.  

Welcome back to New York! How does it feel to be performing here once again?

Him Chan: It was hard getting over from Atlanta to New York as there were some [weather-related] difficulties. But the fact that we’re here in New York right now fills us with positive energy. We’re looking forward to putting on another amazing performance for our fans tonight.

You toured the United States multiple times in the past, but is there anything that you’re looking forward to particularly on this tour?

Young Jae: I’m looking forward to going to Washington D.C., just because I’ve always wanted to visit.
Him Chan: On our first US tour we went to Washington, but because a lot of things have changed since then we’ve wanted to visit again.

This is the Party Baby tour even though in the past you’ve always brought your Live on Earth tours to the US. How are the two different?  

Jong Up: Compared to previous concerts that we’ve put on in the past, we tried to orientate Party Baby more towards interaction between ourselves and fans so that we can have more of a party or a club atmosphere and just be able to have have a good time. I think that, compared to our previous performances, we want to focus on the whole collaborative effort of just all our fans and us working together to create one performance.

To get more involved you provided fans with a dress code, with a different style corresponding to each specific member. How did you come up with that idea?

Young Jae: This dress code idea for the tour was something that us as the artists – along with the tour directors – thought up since we thought it would be a good way to interact with our fans.

The tour’s set list seems to focus a lot on your newer songs and doesn’t really have a lot of your older music on it. What does that choice say about B.A.P’s musical growth as performers?

Him Chan: We’re really not holding back on this tour. We’re just unlocking all of our abilities and our skills, putting them together for this show. This time, we wanted to be able to show our fans everything that we have. There’s no significance of us not performing many older songs. We just want to be able to put on a good performance with all of our recent songs.

B.A.P has had multiple No. 1 albums on the World Albums Chart. How has that made you feel as a group?

Young Jae: We think it’s amazing, and we’re really fascinated that we can continue to find love from across the world from all of our fans. We’re always grateful and we’re always thankful towards our fans, and we want to continue to show them love for their support for us.

There are only three songs on your new EP Rose, but they each are distinct stylistically. How did that come about?

Young Jae: We’ve released happy songs and we’ve released songs with strong, positive messages, but it’s been a while since we released an album so we wanted to show a third side to B.A.P, one that we knew we were capable of doing and really wanted to show to our fans this time.

Him Chan: “Dystopia” was one of those songs where we just wanted to show B.A.P in all our attributes with rock, heavy metal, and just pay homage to that. For “Wake Me Up,” it was one of those songs for our generation, because we are part of the current generation, where we just wanted to show that we’re present and that we are with the fans and how they feel about current events. As for “Diamond 4 Ya,” we wanted to be melodic, we wanted to play with pitches and instrumentals, and that was something we were looking forward to showing as well.

How was approaching your return with the single “Wake Me Up” different from your past releases?

Him Chan: When we were approaching this album in comparison to previous albums we just wanted to have something that’s more lively, more one on one with our fans. We wanted something that would resonate with our fans, through the message that we’re trying to spread.

Dae Hyun: We feel that we’ve grown a lot individually and together as a group and we wanted to show that in our work this time.

The music video for “Wake Me Up” featured one of the most diverse casts that K-pop’s ever seen. How did that come about?  

Dae Hyun: Every time we shoot a music video we have meetings with the producers who help us create them and we put together all of our ideas. Everything from the individual shots of the video to the casting of everyone who will appear. We just come together and put together our ideas, and then we put it all into a final product. But the most important thing is that our ideas have changed, and that helped shape how we felt towards this music video and how we wanted it directed. Initially the plan was to use a Korean cast but after the members got together and we put together our thoughts, we wanted to go with a more diverse cast to show that we have an accurate representation of our society today. Not just of in Korea or America, but all over the world. We wanted to express that through our music video, which is why we decided to go with such a diverse cast.

Him Chan: It was never really something for us that we wanted to do, just stick to a Korean cast because we are Korean. We wanted to represent every part of the world and pay homage to the fans who’ve come out to support us.

The music video’s storyline, which features messages about self-care and mental health, was incredibly progressive, but while making it did you expect that it would resonate with so many fans from around the world?

Him Chan: When we were putting together the music video, we didn’t think that extensively into it, but we did intend to insert multiple meanings into certain aspects of it. We just wanted it to be interpreted by the fans.

B.A.P has been together for five years now, so how do you keep motivated during the rough times?

Dae Hyun: What’s kept us together as a group so strongly was our fans. We really feel that because of the support from our fans we’ve been able to continue stronger and better than ever each time we release a new album as a group. It’s really all thanks to the fans, and we want to pay respect to them.

Young Jae: Before I got on the stage in Atlanta, I really wasn’t feeling well. But as soon as I got on stage and saw the faces of all our fans I felt so much better and became energized and ready to perform.

You guys have shown a lot of different artistic sides over the years. Are there any other sounds or concepts you’d like to try, or musicians you’d like to work with?

Dae Hyun: What I’ve always admired, and what I’ve wanted to do a lot recently, is a duet. That’s something that I’m going to look forward to doing in the future.

Zelo: I don’t really have anything I want to focus on but I want to connect with the fans and show a more amazing, more awesome performance each time and that’ll be reflected in my music.

What’s next for B.A.P? Are you working on anything new?

Dae Hyun: The [Party Baby] concept of this tour is completely new for us and we think that the most important thing for us right now is to finish the rest of this tour successfully, then return to all our fans across the world and back home in Korea. So that’s our priority currently.

Do you have any final words for your American fans?

Zelo: [In English] I love you.

Him Chan: We want to tell our fans in the United States that we’ll continue to work tirelessly and continue to show them a new, better improved performance and better side to B.A.P every time we can visit and perform for them.

(#abuse)

The lie that annoys me most isn’t “abuse makes you accommodating and kind” but “abuse makes you wise beyond your years” or “abuse makes you grow up fast,” cause ime, abuse, especially early and chronic abuse, hinders the development of communication, conflict resolution and daily life skills associated with maturity. 

Many victims are isolated and taught broken rules during their formative years. They lacked a safe learning environment. They lack ‘common sense’. They might lack common cultural knowledge. What we learned not only doesn’t ‘work’ in the ‘outside’ world, but doesn’t make any sense to anyone else. Most victims develop coping mechanisms (numbing, avoidance, substance abuse, eating disorders, emotional unavailability, ‘forgetfulness’, ‘pathological’ sexualities, etc) very much associated with immaturity. Most develop trigger reactions also very much associated with immaturity (being ‘bad’ at criticism, being ‘bad’ at competition, being ‘bad’ at rejection, being ‘bad’ at coping with inconveniences, being ‘bad’ at judging a situation accurately, etc). Attempts to hyper-correct and to keep up appearances for self-protection also quickly look ‘immature’ (trying ‘too hard’, hiding mistakes, lying, making things unnecessarily complicated, making light of trauma and abuse, etc). Many have at least some trouble with ‘adult’ achievements and virtues like working hard, education, building stable relationships, communities and families, reciprocity, physical and emotional intimacy, independent living, foresight, which, again, is seen as immature, and past a certain age, immoral.  

There is an ableist fiction that people who lack abilities and knowledge do so because we let them get away with it for too long, maybe even encouraged them. If they were forced into disaster, if bad enough things happened to them, so the story, they’d (be forced to) learn how to do all these things they struggle with, and also stop doing all those other things they shouldn’t be doing. Effects of maybe severe abuse and control and disadvantage so get magicked into being effects of being too spoiled, too sheltered, too privileged, lacking life experience, while the abuse suffered becomes a metaphor, only applicable to hypothetical others.

I can’t stand how people keep complaining about a perfectly good show/movie/game that has really decent representation not standing up to their near-impossible-to-achieve benchmark of representation? Like no media will ever be perfect and have an accurate representation of every tiny thing you lot expect to be in a singular entity? That’s not how the world works. Even the most progressive media will be problematic (an example I saw tonight on Overwatch, the Native American-styled skin for Pharah. She’s Egyptian. Little on the nose there.), but if you tear into developers and producers and writers for not living up to every single one of your expectations, we won’t get this sort of media AT ALL. It’s that simple.

Imagine you make this awesome film with a strong, well-rounded female character who is played by an actor from the Middle East, with all of the strongest characters and support being played by women, people of colour, and/or both. It addresses racism, slavery (briefly), and PTSD. The lead doesn’t take any shit from the white men who think they’re running the show. The lead is in charge, and all the men in the vicinity follow her lead because they respect her. She saves the world with the power of love. The romantic interest is subverted to being a white male, who is polite, respectful, and doesn’t try to take over from the lead because he’s not a dick. The camerawork is fantastic, with no mention of the male gaze. It’s incredibly popular, and breaks records. It inspires an entire generation of kids, and shows girls that they can kick ass and take names while still being soft and feminine and caring.

Now imagine you get bitched at by a bunch of people who are pitting this incredible movie against one slated to come out the year after, that has a heap of POC/WOC in the trailer because it’s literally based in Africa, and hasn’t actually been released for criticism. How bloody exhausted would you feel after having faceless critics yell at you for not making a movie that is utterly flawless in its representation?

I’m using this whole Wonder Woman/Black Panther discourse as an example, but it can be applied to most media that is trying to do diversity as best as they can. If there’s a genuine problematic thing, contact the person in charge, and bring it up respectfully. If they dismiss it, then you get angry.

But if you’re complaining about, ugh I don’t know, not having an equal 50/50 of white/white-passing and POC in a cast, or having a white, straight male anywhere near the central plot, or not having a trans character in a show that ticks the box for everything else, you need to fucking chill. You can’t have everything you want. You never will. Creators are trying their fucking best to promote diversity in media, and it’s fucking admirable. Could it be better? Of course! But they can’t make a story that includes literally everybody. It’s impractical, you’ll find something to complain about anyway, and it’s highly unlikely to make it into the mass market because we know what media gatekeepers are like.

So stop fucking needlessly complaining, support diverse media, and campaign intelligently for what you want to see next.

Tl:dr- stop bashing diverse media because you didn’t see your left toenail in it

writeyourlifewithasparklygelpen  asked:

Wow, your art is breathtaking. I was wondering if you had any advice for someone (me) who was a beginning artist and not sure how to get better and not sure what style they want to use in their art? Thanks, and please keep being amazing!

Thank you! Of course I have :) Everything I say comes from my experience so it’s not supposed to be right or wrong. There aren’t a recipe or step by step, but sure there are things that helps us getting better day by day.

1. Motivation.
Find the reason why you want to improve. Think about it everytime you struggle (because you will struggle). This will stops you from giving up!

2. Sketchbook
Buy a sketchbook and draw people around you. If you’re shy - like me - draw your friends or places. Let your sketchbook be your wand: take it everywhere with you. (harry potter references here \o/)

3. Don’t use eraser.
It’s not easy but it’s the best advice someone has given me. If you make mistakes, draw again from the start or find a way to appropriate your mistakes into your drawings. In computer, avoid ctrl+z. But how do we do that?

4. Don’t be too much attached to your drawing
Let it go. Did you draw? It’s terrible? Fine. Go to the next one. Don’t whine about how terrible it looks. Think about what you’ve learnt when you drew it. Love the process more than the results.

5. References
Always observe how things are around you. It’s like being a scientist. “Sky is blue”. YES IT IS BUT THERE ARE LIKE A THOUSAND COLORS AS WELL. Using reference helps us to understand the world. Therefore, your drawings will look accurate. It’s deep like that.

6. Have fun
Yes, you will struggle most of the time. But try to enjoy the process. Love what you are doing in the first place. Put some music on and relax. The moment you realise you’re improving is a really great moment. You won’t have one or two moments like that… you will have those moments in your entire life. So….

7. Compare your old drawings with your new ones.
“I am so much better now!” - if you tell yourself this at some point, you are doing it right.

8. Find your style
The search for your style never ends. In my opinion, having a style depends on inspirations and what we do naturally. You can learn styles from observing other artist’s process as well. Try to experiment everything. Eventually you will find what is natural for you or suits your need to express yourself. “Natural” is different from “comfort zone”, which leads me to the next topic:

9. Get the fuck out of your comfort zone
Always challenge yourself with new things. If there’s something you’re really bad at… like drawing eyes, hands or noses or cats… well, get up and draw eyes, hands, noses or cats. This is what they call “studies”. This is how you get better.

10. Be versatile
Always challenge yourself with different things. Surprise yourself and people around you with things you’ve never done before.

11. Tutorials online
Try to get some help!. Search for tutorials around the internet. There are plenty avaiable and FREE!

Summing up: just draw.

I hope this helps you at least a little bit. Keep up on your journey and don’t give up! :)

redheadedwhat  asked:

So, Dany is 'The Stallion Who Mounts the World' and 'The Prince That Was Promised', is she also 'Azor Ahai'? Or are all three different versions of the same legend/prophecy? And since Jon is also a PTWP and most say he is 'Azor Ahai' could he be considered TSWMTW? Sorry if these questions seem sort of like 'ugh, semantics!', but I'm just trying to figure out which prophecy belongs to which character.

I think all three legendary figures are part of the same legend – or to be more accurate, there are multiple legends and prophecies all based around the same historical event. The Long Night was worldwide, and multiple cultures have legends of a great hero who ended it.

…the Long Night, when a season of winter came that lasted a generation—a generation in which children were born, grew into adulthood, and in many cases died without ever seeing the spring. Indeed, some of the old wives’ tales say that they never even beheld the light of day, so complete was the winter that fell on the world. While this last may well be no more than fancy, the fact that some cataclysm took place many thousands of years ago seems certain. Lomas Longstrider, in his Wonders Made by Man, recounts meeting descendants of the Rhoynar in the ruins of the festival city of Chroyane who have tales of a darkness that made the Rhoyne dwindle and disappear, her waters frozen as far south as the joining of the Selhoru. According to these tales, the return of the sun came only when a hero convinced Mother Rhoyne’s many children—lesser gods such as the Crab King and the Old Man of the River—to put aside their bickering and join together to sing a secret song that brought back the day.
It is also written that there are annals in Asshai of such a darkness, and of a hero who fought against it with a red sword. His deeds are said to have been performed before the rise of Valyria, in the earliest age when Old Ghis was first forming its empire. This legend has spread west from Asshai, and the followers of R’hllor claim that this hero was named Azor Ahai, and prophesy his return. In the Jade Compendium, Colloquo Votar recounts a curious legend from Yi Ti, which states that the sun hid its face from the earth for a lifetime, ashamed at something none could discover, and that disaster was averted only by the deeds of a woman with a monkey’s tail.

–TWOIAF

In the annals of the Further East, it was the Blood Betrayal, as [the Bloodstone Emperor’s] usurpation is named, that ushered in the age of darkness called the Long Night. Despairing of the evil that had been unleashed on earth, the Maiden-Made-of-Light turned her back upon the world, and the Lion of Night came forth in all his wroth to punish the wickedness of men.
How long the darkness endured no man can say, but all agree that it was only when a great warrior—known variously as Hyrkoon the Hero, Azor Ahai, Yin Tar, Neferion, and Eldric Shadowchaser—arose to give courage to the race of men and lead the virtuous into battle with his blazing sword Lightbringer that the darkness was put to rout, and light and love returned once more to the world.

–TWOIAF

The Last Hero of Northern Westeros legend is another one of these historical figures who stopped the Long Night.

How the Long Night came to an end is a matter of legend, as all such matters of the distant past have become. In the North, they tell of a last hero who sought out the intercession of the children of the forest, his companions abandoning him or dying one by one as they faced ravenous giants, cold servants, and the Others themselves. Alone he finally reached the children, despite the efforts of the white walkers, and all the tales agree this was a turning point. Thanks to the children, the first men of the Night’s Watch banded together and were able to fight—and win—the Battle for the Dawn: the last battle that broke the endless winter and sent the Others fleeing to the icy north.

–TWOIAF

“I found one account of the Long Night that spoke of the last hero slaying Others with a blade of dragonsteel. Supposedly they could not stand against it.”
“Dragonsteel?” The term was new to Jon. “Valyrian steel?”
“That was my first thought as well.”

–ADWD, Jon II

Which interestingly bears resemblance to a story of Azor Ahai:

“I looked at that book Maester Aemon left me. The Jade Compendium. The pages that told of Azor Ahai. Lightbringer was his sword. Tempered with his wife’s blood if Votar can be believed. Thereafter Lightbringer was never cold to the touch, but warm as Nissa Nissa had been warm. In battle the blade burned fiery hot. Once Azor Ahai fought a monster. When he thrust the sword through the belly of the beast, its blood began to boil. Smoke and steam poured from its mouth, its eyes melted and dribbled down its cheeks, and its body burst into flame.”

–ADWD, Jon III

Melisandre believes that the prophecy of Azor Ahai Reborn and the prophecy of the Prince that was Promised are the same thing. (Whether she’s right or not, we don’t know, but Maester Aemon doesn’t correct her when she makes that claim.) Since she uses the names interchangeably, it’s hard to tell what the differences between the prophecies are, but both seem to refer to a hero who will be born under a bleeding star, amidst salt and smoke, who will wake dragons from stone. Only TPTWP seems to be connected to the concept that “the dragon must have three heads”, however, and only TPTWP was prophesied to come from the line of Aerys and Rhaella.

And as for the Stallion Who Mounts the World:

“What does it mean?” she asked. “What is this stallion? Everyone was shouting it at me, but I don’t understand.”
“The stallion is the khal of khals promised in ancient prophecy, child. He will unite the Dothraki into a single khalasar and ride to the ends of the earth, or so it was promised. All the people of the world will be his herd.”

–AGOT, Daenerys V

A Dothraki prince that was promised in prophecy– that’s way too similar to “the prince that was promised” for me to think that they’re not connected. Especially since “the ends of the earth” is a good definition for what lies beyond the curtain of light at the end of the world, where the Others come from. Or, in a previous iteration of history, whatever lies beyond the Five Forts. Note also the ancient Valyrian prophecy that the Doom of Man would come from Westeros.

Anyway, who’s who or who’s which? I don’t think it really matters. Jon and Dany are Azor Ahai and they’re the Prince that was Promised, because the dragon must have three heads, because they are the song of ice and fire, because the first Long Night was stopped by Hyrkoon the Hero, Azor Ahai, Yin Tar, Neferion, Eldric Shadowchaser, the Yi Tish woman with the monkey’s tail, the Rhoynar singing hero, and the Last Hero. There are multiple aspects of both prophecies, and both Jon and Dany will fulfill them. (As will a third person, perhaps, maybe with more aspects of the Last Hero.)

Regarding TSWMTW specifically – because Dany is likely to be the only one to majorly interact with the Dothraki, especially the dosh khaleen, they’re likely to only recognize her as the Stallion. But it’s possible Jon might be recognized as well if he eventually encounters any Dothraki, or if we get more details of that prophecy it’ll match things we know about him. We’ll just have to wait and see…

Earlier critique aside, I do think Jaune is kind of brilliant to some degree?

I appreciate Jaune because he’s not THE main character. I know that sounds backwards but allow me to explain.

If this was a completely generic anime, Jaune would be the main protagonist and get special powers, have a harem and always save the day.

Unfortunately for him RWBY is not that kind of series

Ruby Rose is the main character. She has a magical destiny, a badass weapon and incredible skills. 

In a weird way, Ruby  is basically who Jaune wants to be ideally. He wants to be a hero and have all these cool skills!

But ultimately, for a multitude of reasons  that’s just not who he is. He’ll never be like them. He won’t magically gain these abilities. It’s far too late for that.

Ruby is about 2 years younger than Jaune but already has a firm grasp on the world and knows what she wants out of it. To help people.

Despite being what could easily be described as the “stereotypical” hero  on paper underneath the surface he’s just a kid trying to find his place in the world after having his aspirations crushed earlier on in life.

I think a major part of Jaune’s existence is to serve as Ruby’s foil. She knows what she wants to do, she knows what her purpose is already. Making the world a better place.

Meanwhile with his main support being gone he feels lost and as a result, just follows Ruby’s lead. It’s accurate to say he has no real end-goal in mind at the moment.

In order for Jaune to actually grow I think he needs to come to terms with himself for who he is.As cliche of a lesson as being yourself is,I think it fits in this situation. 

He’s a beta guy who is currently faking the role of the shining  knight in order to succeed.That’s who he thinks he should be.

The most ironic thing about him is that he shines the brightest when he steps back to help others rather than try to help himself. That’s what a true knight does after all. 

Supports and defends the king. 

I get why someone wouldn’t like Jaune due to his over exposure but I think he’s ultimately a lot more complex than he gets credit for.

Humans are weird

So I’ve seen a lot of these posts recently and I thought I’d add to the collection.

-Humans adapt to situations well, for example, I can’t find the article, but basically the NHS was using snapchat to send patient updates, scans etc to other Doctors and Nurses because it was quicker and easier than faxing the information, regardless of the fact they weren’t supposed to. Humans find ways to make things easier and quicker, regardless of the rules.

-Something I’ve been thinking on for a while, Alien Abductions. So what if aliens saw us, on our death world being space orcs and was like yeahh nahh to the straight forwards approach. I’ve seen some alien abduction stories, and most of them contain testing or creating half human babies. What if they did that so when they do introduce themselves they send the half humans in, because they saw what we did to members of our own species over looks, so what would we do to them?

-Another thing I was thinking about was monsters, or more accurately the phrase or similar ones. “They’ve monsters” ect referring to particularly nasty humans. What if aliens think that there’s a subspecies of humans called monsters, that they’re violent and inflict pain but look exactly like humans? E.g. Hitler, terrorists, abusers etc.

Just some thoughts I had to share. Feel free to use any of this, but link me if you do.

 note: obviously it’s not the biggest masterpost ever, but it’s made up of tons of other masterposts and important info so keep that in mind! also i’ll add more as i go :)
