No, the blog isn’t dead!

This is a long-time coming buuutttt I guess I should finally say something. So first off- no, the blog isn’t dead forever! I’ve just been taking a very long, very unplanned hiatus due to personal reasons that I’ll touch on a bit.

Putting it under a readmore because it’s a lot but TLDR version:

EQP is not dead! It’s just on impromptu hiatus until I figure some real life things out.

Hello, I see a cute new blog!! 💕 May I request headcanons for Bakugou's s/o when they see him after the recuse from the villain league and how they help him carry on? (Even when s/o is sorta clingy and protective now)

Thank you so much! Well, this is a heavy topic since I just finished reading that part of the manga (I’m speeding through since I got into the fandom recently!) so I hope this is alright for you and that it’s not too much of a downer!

Also, this is in the manga so spoilers for everyone who hasn’t seen it or only watched the anime.

Thoughts on Down

This is a long-ass shit, and I’m not forcing you to read. Also, please be reminded that this is just MY opinion. We all have different opinions, and I’m here to simply share my thoughts, and not to convince you to change yours. So please don’t go to my ask pushing your opinion. I already heard yours. I woke up to a bunch of “asks” and I already know that some don’t like it, while some do.

My initial reaction:

• why is this so auto-tuned? Okay, Dinah’s voice sounds like smooth warm caramel on top of a sundae. Why is this so basic? Lauren’s adlibs tho! Why are the lyrics so generic? Oooh WFH melody… It’s gonna be a bop! Wait why is the chorus so blandly repetitive? But it’s not that bad. Why do they sound so alike?

• and picture me with my earphones on listening to the first verse, pre-hook, chorus and shit with a pensive look on my face, and disappointment running through my head like damn I wanted more…

But then Gucci Mane came in, (and I know I’m the minority in this one), but for me, the first authentic reaction the song elicited from me was his part.

Why? Because his part was so off and out of nowhere that it took me out of the rut I was in. Like imagine a flat line where the song was just monotonous, like a car cruising on a smooth freeway (not bad, but also kind of boring) but then you run into a pothole and you get jerked off your stupor…

That’s what gucci’s part was for me. A tiny spike on that flat line. A deviation that held my attention. I’m not saying it’s amazing. I’m saying that the grating sound of the bass and the randomness of it was what made me smile while listening to it. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that I was smiling the whole time I was listening to that weird bass with a tiny bit of goosebumps on my skin because I knew then that I COULD like Down without lying to myself. It was the only thing that caught my attention, aside from Lauren’s adlibs (which, girl, I wish she did more. I live for Lauren going offffff)

Don’t get me wrong though, I’m so done with these collabs with rappers, like I wanted to hear them alone, like they did with Boss (idc if you say that one is trash lmao, Boss is a bop for me. I fucking love that shit 😂), but if they really have to collab with rappers, I wish it wasn’t Gucci. Maybe Chance, or Migos damn…

But if it were up to me, I wish they would have collabed with female rappers. I still am salty that NTKG wasn’t utilized much. A missed opportunity with Missy Elliott like bitch you had to release TMG over NTKG? NTKG was at least more authentic with the sound it’s trying to project. It was old school and it owned it. Like Voicemail was reminiscent of 90’s bops and not lacing it with today’s trendy dancehall or tropical vibe. It has its own sound, and not a mix of everything generic we hear today where we hear a song and we automatically hear the edm producers more than the artist.

But OMG I digress, sorry.

So yeah, DOWN…

So after my initial reaction, I gave it a couple more listen, and then I watched the live performance, then I slept, then I woke up the next day and I listened to the audio a couple more times, watched the live several more, and here’s my conclusion:

• Down is that kind of a summer bop which grows on you. It’s not a bad song. It’s simplistic but also season-friendly. It’s probably what the label insisted on as their first release.

The reason why it probably feels lacking for me, aside from its repetitiveness, is that maybe it lacks another verse. It’s shorter than WI and WFH so it feels incomplete. There must be a reason for it. It could really be just a teaser.

• at this point in my 5h-stanning life, I’m not even expecting anything mind-blowing. All I want is for 5H to slay the charts, because this should be their era. They seem genuinely happy now and my god after everything they’ve been through (label shit and all), ALL FIVE OF THEM deserve our unwavering support.

• Sure, Down isn’t what I expected. Yes, I wanted more. I wanted more lyrics. I wanted a kickass sound. But, idk man, after several repeats, I think it’s a good enough bop.

• with regards to the vocals, I still hate the auto-tuned shit. I get that maybe they’re finally utilizing Lauren’s range, but I prefer that they don’t auto tune much because I could barely hear her rasp (which was still obvious in her live performance, despite the higher tone she’s using).

Maybe they’re doing it on purpose, making them sound the same as a symbol of their new sound’s “cohesiveness”, but I prefer old 5h where their voices are uniquely different.

• and I’m not even complaining that it sounds like WFH. I don’t have a problem with an artist using a tried and tested formula for ONE of their album’s single. It’s meant to hook the audience. It gives them that familiar sound which could make a NON-FAN recognize their older hits and draw them to the new one. Just because they said “NEW ERA” doesn’t mean that they should change their ENTIRE sound. There’s always that one or two singles that are meant to hook the general public. It’s a constant compromise a mainstream artist makes with their label.

(I mean, The Chainsmokers basically generate the same sound over and over and they’re charting as if they created music. And no, I’m not a big fan of the chainsmokers.

Point is, re-using WFH is not something unheard of. It’s a business move.)

You really can’t please everybody. Because when Lady Gaga released an album that felt authentic for her, some people criticized it and kept saying they wanted the old “Bad Romance” Gaga. When Lorde released her new single, Green Light, her hipster fanbase called her a sell-out and didn’t like that she’s deviated from her “sound” to be more mainstream and I was like bitch can’t an artist explore a different side of her artistry?

And on the flip side, can’t an artist use their old sound? My point is, Down was produced by the same people who made WFH for a reason. They are playing safe. They wanted a single that would generate enough attention like their previous ones did. Then maybe, just maybe, their next singles which probably showcase their authentic sound and lyrics will have as much impact since now people are paying attention. Because no matter how much we want them to be authentic, they’re still a girl group under a greedy ass label who needs them to maintain what their idea of a girl group music and image should be..

And while Down is not something I’m particularly excited about, it’s starting to get stuck in my head, and I don’t hate it. It’s a light summery chill song that’s good to play with your friends while sipping on your drinks by the pool. It is what it was supposed to be.

I get it, I was disappointed too. Down is a downer. But I’m not gonna judge the whole album with one single yet. I’m gonna wait.

This is why I wrote this one before Down was released:

https://problematic-camren.tumblr.com/post/161338803713/5h3

Because I knew that I wasn’t expecting much from their music. I sure hope for more, definitely, BUT stanning 5H isn’t always about their music.

And just because I don’t like a few of their songs, doesn’t mean they don’t deserve my support.

I’m supporting 5h because they represent girls who are not a standard definition of what society thinks a girl should look like or how they should act like. They symbolize us. They showed us that one can achieve their dreams through hard work, and while they have been mistreated before (by their label and by fans alike) they still kept their heads up high, with grace and maturity, and kept on spreading love and inspiration, and they kept on smiling even if their hearts were breaking. They kept striving to be the best they could be, and it’s inspiring. And to see genuine warmth from these pop stars, their love and appreciation for their fans, is something that makes me wanna stan them forever. That’s why even if i really don’t like their music, I’d still keep on stanning them, because what they shared to us, the representation they gave us, the beauty and poise they all showed us, man, even if they fucking screeched for an entire album, I’ll be fuucking putting that on loop and still support their asses.

And I know it’s blind support, but I knew what I was getting into when I started supporting 5h. I wasn’t a pop person before this, I knew I won’t love their music so much. I stan them because I like them, plain and simple.

And I know it’s different for everybody. It’s all just a matter of preferences. Some could unstan just coz they don’t like the song, and that’s totally okay. We’re free to stan or unstan whoever we want. But like I said, it’s just one song. Let’s wait for the other singles and the album.

Ideally, I would love for them to show us everything they have as artists. This is their chance to go big. They have so much potential and I would have liked to see it shine while they’re still in the group. I want the brand Fifth Harmony to leave a lasting mark in this industry. I want them to be on the same spot as TLC or SG or DC. I want them to legit deserve their title.

And Down is not it. But guess what? Down is just one single. I’m gonna wait patiently for the rest of their stuff. I ONLY NEED THAT ONE CLASSIC HIT I’VE BEEN CRAVING FOR SINCE I STARTED LISTENING TO THEM. ONE CLASSIC SONG THAT WOULD STILL BE PLAYED GENERATIONS LATER BECAUSE IT’S JUST SO DAMN RELATABLE AND HEARTFELT.

That’s all I want. And I hope I’ll find that in 5H3.

Yes, Down is empty.

But I won’t unstan just because of one song. We can be disappointed (as I sure was), but I think that 5H is worth more than a few musical disappointments.

Transfixed

Hey guys it feels like forever since I posted the comic (5 days really) sorry for the wait. It’s really short this time, a transition upload maybe?, it just didn’t make sense to continue further so bear with me. I really hope to get another update in this week idk I’ve just been feeling very stressed and down recently. I haven’t really been doing my work well and even drawing or watching anime has been… meh. and i guess i’ve been kinda lonely, or actually…  jeez I’m not good at words sorry for being a downer. I still promise to make an update a week no matter what (ok maybe finals will ruin that)

Hello beautiful followers! I hope you guys had a great week! I had an awesome one, and now starts the post-vacay downer 😞  But I’m glad I got you guys and Camila in overalls to get me through this 😂

y’all not to be a downer and maybe/hopefully i’m off but the person who posted that photo of harry tonight also has this photo–I think she may be part of the group that chased down Harry’s car the day after SNL and posted lots of nasty stuff about him when he didn’t want to stop?

Story Time:

I started playing Animal Crossing New Leaf my Freshman year in college. It gave me something to do before bed or whenever I had some free time and wanted to be alone.

I played it during the mandatory school meetings that happened three times a week at my university. I played all night when my room mate would leave for breaks and I was  alone in our dorm. I played between classes when I’d find an empty classroom to eat my lunch alone. Basically, Animal Crossing was how I drowned out all the noise around me. 

That’s why this game means so much to me. It gave me something that I had control over when I felt pushed and pulled in so many different directions.

In truth, I’ve been having some trouble with post-grad depression, if that’s a thing. A lot of things have been changing very quickly in my life and I have not been handling it very well. One of the side effects of this is that things I used to love to do just don’t make me feel much of anything anymore. 

That’s why I have been so poor at updating as of late. I’ve just been having a hard time enjoying things and being happy as of late; and I don’t really have anyone to reach out to for help anymore so I’ve been fighting this mostly alone. Depression isn’t something I’ve had to face alone in quite a few years, so I’m not as equipped as I used to be at getting myself out of this one.

That being said, looking back at how long I’ve played Animal Crossing and how much it meant to me, I hope that I can find the strength to get back to those days. Because those were some great times.

Sorry for the long post and for being a bit of a down post, but I thought you deserved an explanation as to why things are slower here on my part. I hope to be able to update more often and I will keep trying my best to get out of this. It’s just not easy. I hope that’s alright.

Update: Really fun / good stuff!

So my last post just now was sort of a downer.  But I do have good things to report.  Namely, at the end of July I did a thing: 

Yup - that’s us!  (Squinting in the sun and everything - here’s hoping the professional photos look better …)  

The whole day was nothing but perfect.  That morning, a couple of friends came by and we did a slow 5 miler.  One of my friends stashed a couple of beers out on the loop so we had some enforced stops along the way.  

Afterwards, we met up with another friend and his wife for breakfast / brunch at a diner up the street.  (It’s good to be a guy - no hair and makeup for me!)

And how else should a groom get to the church than by the MBTA bus?  

(I got some strange looks from my fellow passengers.  Apparently, I was a little overdressed for the mode of transport.)

The ceremony was wonderful and the reception was great as well.  Having family and friends there meant so much.  My 94 year old grandfather even made it. 

(Yes he’s really 94 - I’m hoping that I’m doing as well as he is now when I hit 74.)

The honeymoon was a trip of a lifetime.  Being beach people and wanting to avoid zika, we went to Tahiti.  It was as amazing as I could have ever hoped for. 

Well worth the 24 hours of travel time each way.  I believe the phrase uttered several times was, “This doesn’t suck.” Lots of time on the beach, many bottles of rum, and amazing views.  

The only downside of the trip was the fact that 10 days of sitting on the beach with no running or measurable exercise does not benefit one’s conditioning.  Still, I’d do it again in a heartbeat. 

And now it’s back to reality - namely work and real life.  Married life is great - smartest decision I ever made was getting hitched to this girl.  Nothing better than having my partner at my side.  I’m even enjoying wearing a ring!

Thanks for indulging the mushy post and the sappy newlywed sentiments - I’ll try not to make it a habit …

IT’S RANDALL MONDAY AGAIN!❤️

It’s been a long weekend, but a not unpleasant one, spent with friends on Saturday, which was lovely, and my husband yesterday which was the best. 😍

I hope you all had a good weekend too. 🤗

I’ll try to post more of the story this week, tbh I can’t wait to finish it and get it out of the way, because I’m on a real downer about it, so I want to move on. 😔

I wish you all a good week. 😘

Peace. Love. Randall. ☮️❤️🕵️

It’s Bobby Sunday!  Are you ready to dance????

Yes, today’s Bobby Sunday we are watching Marilyn Hotchkiss’ Ballroom Dancing and Charm School.

You know … . . after watching this today, I have to say I didn’t pay much attention to many of the details the other umpteen times I watched.  Or maybe I just watched Bobby dancing and having sex in the bakery?

Alright, this is my time to shine.

I’m not a downer, I try not to be, I’ll always be hopeful for the Mass effect franchise always. But now is the time for EA and Bioware to make a move, with anthem’s process probably coming and a release date to a close within the next year or two and dragon age 4 a wip (I’m guessing but assume that it’s definitely on it’s way and in production) mass effect’s track will need to be reset and revived after The Andromeda Experience™.

NOW IS THE TIME AND AGE FOR 39.99$ STAND ALONE GAMES THAT CONNECT TO THE TRILOGY UNIVERSE.

This is an era and trend that needs to start now. I’ve seen how companies are leaning towards this with Uncharted The lost Legacy and Dishonored Death of the outsider. It is now the time for Bioware to take the same path. Small, story focused games with well written thought out story to solidify lore within the existing universe and characters that support their connection to the lore that isn’t massive but still leaves some space for exploration in one way or another. I will never turn away from a massive open world mass effect game no matter the cost, but this strategy could renew the faith it’s fans had in the Mass effect series and are slowly losing because of the execution, treatment and production of it’s last game that still made sales. NOW is the time to take advantage of this growing trend of 40$ games that expand on a story that don’t take 800 hours to complete but don’t end after 24 hours.

ON TOP OF THAT, it helps bring people into the story without making them feel like they HAVE to play the trilogy or original games. In fact it should motivate them to WANT to play it. And if this is successful it would act as a gateway to a mass effect trilogy remaster that would sell easily to those that have and have not played it simply to experience the story and universe each game is connect to.

I mean!!!! Am I wrong?????

But like… How do I tell Bioware and EA that

28 days without a drink. Physically, I feel better than I have in a long time. Mentally, I was doing better but given recent events, I’m getting much much worse. I still have no sexual desire and am beginning to accept that may never come back. I can’t really relate with a lot of people that I once did these last few weeks. Maybe these things will change, and maybe they won’t. 

Sorry for such a downer post. Just wanted to update anyone who may care and get some things off my mind. I hope you’re all having a wonderful night.

Hey Ally it's my birthday today and idk why but I'm feeling really sad and for no reason and I don't know why this happens, especially on my birthday. I also don't know why I'm telling you this, I guess just to have someone know I'm not feeling so great. Idk I'm just feeling ??? - sorry for the downer post, I hope you're having a wonderful time!! All your posts cheer me up a little whenever I'm down 💛

Hi chickpea, I’m so sorry to hear that you’re feeling down, but I also want you to know that it’s perfectly okay/normal/human to do so. We all feel a little off at times, it’s truly alright and we just need to remember that we will feel good again. No matter how much it rains, the sun will always come back out :)

Is there anything that you could do today that might make you feel a little bit happier? Is there anything I could do?

I’m so glad to hear I can help cheer you up in some way! I will strive to continue to do so <3 <3 Happy Birthday!!! x

Hi! As it is Hermione's birthday during the romione shipweek, do you think you could write something about one of her birthday's? Maybe the year she is back at school, with Ron sneaking up to visit her? Or just anything really, I'm sure it will be lovely :)

I don’t know about lovely, bit it is birthday flavoured, so I hope that’s okay :). AO3 

If she added up all the birthday cards and gift she’d received for birthdays one through eighteen, she wouldn’t come close to the total number of cards she’s received today for her nineteenth. She stares at the mailbag she’d dragged up to the Common Room, knowing that the only one she wanted was inside there, somewhere, buried beneath all the ones from total strangers. It was a very strange sensation.

“Perils of being a celebrity, huh?” Ginny said, appearing suddenly and moving an enormous stack off the armchair so she could take a seat.

“Harry didn’t receive this many cards for his birthday! He didn’t get any from people who weren’t close friends or family. Why have I got so many?” she asked, throwing up her hands after opening another which contained best wishes from all at the Society for the Protection of Unicorns. At least this one was educational—she hadn’t known there was such a society until just now.

“He did, but they mostly went to the Ministry because no one knew he was staying with us. Everyone knows your current address is Hogwarts, so they’re writing to you. Like I say, perils of being a celebrity. Oh! What’s this?” Before Hermione could stop her, she’d pulled a card out that was stuffed behind the cushion of the chair. When she opened it, a fanfare went off at such volume that Hermione was almost sure she felt the windows of Gryffindor Tower shake. Ginny merely raised an eyebrow, closed the card, and sat on it. “Makes my card look kind of boring, huh?”

“Yours is more special than any of these,” Hermione said truthfully. “And more memorable, too. I’ll be washing glitter out of my bedsheets until at least Christmas.”

New Beginnings is so amazing! I absolutely love it and I would love for you to add on to it! After that last story you posted which was really sad and depressing, we need a happy fluffy one!! Great job Dearie! I hope you continue with it!!!

That last multi-shot was a bit of a downer wasn’t it?? 😂😂😂 I never thought I’d be able to write romantic sappy but hell, I busted that 4 thousand words out in a couple of hours! It just came to me so easily. Part 2 is well on its way 😉

His Confession (Ian/reader)

Writer’s note: Sorry this is so short! I hope it’s alright. And I’m really going to try to post more often, I’ve just been really busy all summer and I don’t have a whole lot of free time. :/

It was a Saturday evening and you were hanging out with your close friend, Ian. Both bored out of your minds, you decided to liven things up by smoking a joint and taking some downers. You popped the pills and smoked the weed, sitting back and letting the effects of the drugs kick in. It didn’t take long until you both were feeling good.

This wasn’t your first time smoking together, so when Ian pulled you close to him, you weren’t surprised. Pot always made him more affectionate than he really was. He pulled you onto his lap and let you take a toke as he held the joint with his long, slender fingers.

After a while, you were both pretty high. Ian began kissing the back of your neck and telling you how much he loved you. You just laughed it off, not believing that he could feel the way you’d been feeling this whole time. You attempted to get up off of his lap, but Ian pulled you back down to him saying that he loved you again.

“It’s not funny. I’m serious,” Ian said as you laughed some more.

“I bet you are,” you replied, shaking your head in disbelief.

A couple hours later, Ian headed home and you crawled into bed and tried not to think too much about what he’d said. You told yourself not to get your hopes up and that it was the drugs talking, but another part of you really wanted it to be true. You laughed at yourself, rolling your eyes, knowing very well that he probably would not remember any of this tomorrow.

You fell asleep and awoke the next morning to a text from Ian. It read: “Hey (y/n). I hope I didn’t freak you out yesterday or anything, but I want you to know that I meant every word I said.”

As you read his message, your heart pounded in your chest as you considered all of the new possibilities that this meant for the two of you.

noii!!! i haven’t even cracked the surface when it comes to retro anime. that’s why i have set my focus on gundam after bebop. i’m actually watching msg. but cca matched more graphically to detco

now you know spoilers aren’t a biggie for me. watching cca before msg.

I FEEL THAT.  i never mind spoilers myself but i know a lot of people do

i haven’t finished zeta yet technically bc the ending is a downer but both msg and zeta are quite good!  zz is p good too from what i’ve heard, it’s just whiplash when compared to zeta and also there’s no amuro or char in it so what’s the point

(jk roux is pretty and i like her)

ANYWAYS i hope you enjoy the original msg!  sadly it was cut short like 10 eps so the latter half of the anime feels rushed bc they had to cut a lot of content to accommodate for that, but the ending is a killer and i cry every time
