no warrant

sometimes ur going through your recent follows and you see someone you really respect and it’s just like…what??  why??  I’m not doing anything that would warrant this?!  but look.  people do what they like, apparently.  so just be chill, toasty.

itmustvebeenthefairies  asked:

Any shows that you feel were completely snubbed in this year's nominations?

Several!

I thought Anastasia really deserved more recognition. Two nominations (Costumes and Featured Actress) is not enough for this show. The score and book are, by all reviews, wonderful – as is the leading lady (not to mention the leading men). The sets and lights also look lovely, and some more design nods seem appropriate. 

Amelie is much the same, except that it didn’t get any nominations. Which is, frankly, ludicrous considering the show is designed beautifully. The aesthetic of this show is so cohesive and so perfectly-attuned to the theme and atmosphere of the content. It absolutely warranted a nod for set design, and it could easily have made it into the pool for Best Costumes as well. And skipping over Phillipa Soo for a Best Leading Actress nod was criminal (especially when both Patti Lupone and Christine Ebersole were nominated from War Paint).

I also really thought Bronx Tale would at least get recognition for score, but it got nothing, which makes me a little sad. Ditto on my darling Holiday Inn, which only got a (much-deserved) choreography nomination (I thought its actors would get some attention from a nomination, if not a win – but I guess this is just a tough year).

Thank you very much that means a lot

Seeing if @azizansari’s trick works:

From kevohreal on reddit:


Grammatically speaking, it’s an unsolicited inquiry that elicits an immediate response. “Hey” is an interjection used as an informal greeting. It warrants no response, is often in-actionable, and is contextually meaningless until a more formalized sentence structure is attached by one or both parties involved in the dialogue. The Whole Foods line works because it presents syntactic urgency in the form of a question, while being specifically inclusive, associatively obscure, and impressionably considerate—a trifecta of gallantry that also places this scenario in the realm of possibility.Socially speaking, it’s unusually confident and offers a unique, humorous solution to a predictable situation. It offers trust without overstepping the bounds of comfortability, and is a random act that challenges the character of the receiver—to charge an otherwise menial task to someone they had just “met”. This is a transaction that can be realistically executed, demonstrating follow-through. Women like confidence, randomness, trust, and follow-through; especially when wrapped in humor.Economically speaking, Whole Foods has a reputation for being notoriously expensive. (Most) Women enjoy money. Women also enjoy the promise of health. As a brand, Whole Foods boasts positive health implications for its customers who shop there. (i.e.: if you purchase a bottle of $20 Asparagus water, you will likely cure yourself of all disease, while paying a 2000% premium). Offering to buy a stranger something from an expensive market like this implies financial security. Try using this line with Food 4 Less, and let us know how that goes.tl;dr: Uniqueness + Confidence + Humor + Money = Get all the Tinder dates.

anonymous asked:

What are your opinions on if youre in a relationship with a guy, but he likes other girls pictures on instagram? It really bothers me but i don't know if I'm just being too serious :/

This is a difficult question to answer because on the one hand, it is just Instagram and a like really isn’t that serious. A like here and there isn’t that big of a deal. On the other hand, social media is how most people meet nowadays, and a Like on a picture can warrant a DM or something. So it really depends on your partner. If you fully trust them and you have a strong relationship, then a like really isn’t that serious or worth ruining your relationship for. If they have a tendency to be flirtatious and talk to other girls and it bothers you, just ask him to stop for respect of your relationship. If he refuses and says it’s not that serious, that’s up to you to decide. But if he goes off and says you’re dramatic and insecure and just plain mean about it, leave him. He shouldn’t continue doing something that makes you uncomfortable whether it’s serious to him or not. This is just my take on it. 

fuffee  asked:

is it your right leg, left leg or both that you use the cane for? I'm curious because I'm looking for a cane to use when I can't use my chair and I'm gonna need mine for my right leg :U

i’m sorry i don’t see why that warrants asking about which leg i need it for??? lmfao

One of my friends from school was kidnapped this week by ICE

Cal State Los Angeles student Claudia Rueda taken by ICE this morning. Please mobilize and spread the word #FreeClaudia

“Early this morning, Border Patrol conducted a raid in Boyle Heights kidnapping Claudia Rueda outside her home in Boyle Heights, immigrant rights organizer with the Los Angeles Immigrant Youth Coalition and student at Cal State Los Angeles. Claudia most recently lead a campaign to free her mom, Teresa, from ICE detention after Border Patrol agents similarly kidnapped Teresa from their home.

When the officials showed up this morning, family members knew not to open the door since the agents couldn’t produce a warrant. But they got to Claudia anyway while she was outside moving the family’s car. For several hours her family had no idea where she was.

Claudia has lived in the US nearly her entire life. She participated in college-prep programs, was a student at UC Santa Cruz, and transferred to Cal State LA where she is currently studying Latin American Studies and has the support of many professors and campus organizations.Claudia has been preparing for apply for DACA but had been unable to gather the money for the filing fees.

Claudia’s best friend states: “Claudia is an extremely supportive, empowering, and hard working friend. All throughout high school, she encouraged students to continue their studies in higher education, becoming involved in afterschool programs like ESCALERA. Throughout our college career, she has continuously supported me, offered her home, and her wisdom to continue being a hardworking student and following our passions.”

Call Border Patrol in Chula Vista at 619-498-9750 to demand DHS not initiate removal proceedings and release Claudia to let her apply for DACA and get back to her family and completing finals.

“Hi, my name is ________________, and I am a concerned community member calling in support of Claudia Sarahi Rueda Vidal, DOB: 1/15/95, a DACA eligible youth, college student and beloved community member from Boyle Heights. Claudia has been a mentor in the community to other youth and has long fought for justice for others. I demand that Border Patrol release her to her family and community to let her apply for DACA with USCIS.”

FIGHT DEPORTATIONS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!
FIGHT ICE WITH FIRE!


*** this is a copy and paste from her group’s Facebook. Claudia was head of a group of people that collaborated with my MSA and BLACK student union as well as the transgender rights/undocumented students group TRUCHA at our school. This is clearly a targeted attack because of her activism. I desperately need everyone’s help in trying to free her.

If you dislike Gal Godot for her past service in the IDF, that is entirely your prerogative. 

If you dislike Gal Godot for her support of IDF initiatives during Protective Edge, that is also your prerogative. 

I am not going to tell you how to feel about that; you are entitled to make your own judgments as informed by your personal values.

But if you use those judgments as a platform to spread falsehoods—especially ones that rooted in anti-Semitic tropes about how Jewish people are evil child murderers—then you and I are going to have a fucking problem. 

Gal Godot spent her time in the IDF as a fitness instructor, not as a sniper. She never saw combat, never shot any children, and certainly did not have kill notches on her rifle. She did not brag about killing Palestinians. She did not say “I want them all dead.”

She did make a post in 2014 that supported people in the IDF for “protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children” and tagged it with a few phrases including #loveidf and #coexistence. Now, again, maybe her support is antithetical to your beliefs, and I’m not here to lecture you on that. But no, she did not post anything about “praying for Palestinians to die quickly” or brag about killing people’s families. 

If her actual involvement with and statements about the IDF are things you find unsavoury, then fine; but if that’s the case, then you shouldn’t need to make up lies that evoke historical anti-Semitism to drive home your points. 

The things you oppose should hold up as they already are—otherwise, you’re effectively conceding that the things you don’t like aren’t bad enough to warrant your reaction on their own. 

For example, I don’t like the football player Luis Suarez because, despite being a talented goalscorer, he has a weird, creepy history of biting his opponents during matches. Now, this is a total valid reason not to like a professional athlete, so I have no cause to gild the lily. I don’t need to say “Well, actually I don’t like Luis Suarez because when he was at Liverpool he ate a Manchester United player’s liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti,” because his actual behaviour is aggressive, unprofessional, and straight up bizarre—meaning I don’t need to embellish the truth in order to be justified in how I feel about him. 

If you think serving in the IDF is bad, then just say “I don’t like Gal Godot because I think serving in the IDF is bad.” Don’t make shit up, don’t exaggerate the truth. Otherwise it looks an awful lot like you’re deliberately going out of your way to insinuate that Jewish people are evil child murderers, which says a lot more about you than it does about Gal Godot. 

On that note, please make sure that you are also holding Adam Driver accountable with equal gusto for serving in the Marine Corps and continually supporting the U.S. armed forces by boycotting the new Star Wars movies. Again, you are totally entitled to dislike the military, especially in relation to conflicts ongoing conflicts that have had horrible effects on the Middle East, but not when it’s only against the j00z and nobody else.
