not the point of this post ok

Remember when I made that post about The Get Down being a good show with diverse characters and a good plot, and Stranger Things being the least representative show ever (I didn’t even say it was bad, I just pointed out basic flaws)

3 different people tried to say because the show was set in the 80’s, and that that was a valid reason as to why we only have 1 black character with a background and more than a few lines, and no lgbt characters. Believe me when I say I don’t dislike the show, it’s amazing. But this is valid criticism, and, wow, get this: POC and lgbt people existed in the 80’s, what a shocker?

Like all I’m saying is that The Get Down is underrated, even though it’s interesting, full of amazing diverse characters with believable perks and flaws, and over all just a *good* show, and that I can’t understand why it doesn’t have the audience it deserves.

And then I remember that it’s show about lgbt POC kids (mainly black kids!) in the projects trying to make their dreams come true, and that makes certain people uncomfortable I guess.

I'm not a fan of flooding tags. Putting Lapidot inthe Amedot tag, and vice versa. It's not that hard to add the word 'critical' in your tags. Su critical, su critizism, whatever. Complain all you want- but pls, do your best to keep it out of the main tags.

Ugh, but they won’t because they don’t care!

They don’t care about people who is enjoying this show and its using it as a way to cope or as escapism or people who have it as an special interest or people who literally LIVE for the show or have a huge sentimental attachment for the show because it saved them before. 

All they care about is complaining about it everywhere to the point where is not even funny and shitting on other people’s post (NOT COUNTING HARASSING THEM BECAUSE I’VE SEEN IT Y’ALL AINT SLICK) like this was some kind of highschool debate on what color should we use for the damn uniforms.

And ok, hell yeah, SU is not perfect, you know, I know, that lady on the street who is walking the dog knows, it has its flaws, but goddamit, theres people who enjoy it, theres people who like it, theres people who find peace on it, and y’all come here taking them away for it just because you wanna be petty.

And you know what? it gets to the point when its not even funny, is not funny seeing y’all going around, its not even tolerable, because we use this to calm us down, we relate to the characters, we enjoy how tridimensional they are, we enjoy the style, the colors, the designs, the voice acting, we enjoy the fucking show.

No one is forcing y’all to shut up, no one is forcing y’all to enjoy it, we just want you to stop being SO FUCKING INVASIVE, and let people enjoy their damn cartoon without getting fucking anxiety everytime they open a new blog because they know theres gonna be discourse, and they know its gonna hit them.

And yeah I sound harsh and I am pissed and i am angry right now because theres sensitive people that can’t take a big wave of negativity and apparently thats the worse thing ever for y’all, like forcing us to face negativity all the time but then posting comics about how “its ok not wanting to be overwhelmed about X negative topic” and it just… sorry….

What's the thing going on with Dee's mystery illness? I saw you post about it a few days ago but I can't find the post like there's a theory about the book in her purse in Hero or Hate Crime or something and im confused do you know the theory/have a theory pls?

ok so…… i think at this point it’s….. poooossibly safe to say that the Dee Is Sick theory is debunked? a lot of it hinged on the timeline being fucky and now that we know that cricket’s tale is the only time-fucky episode it’s probably safe to throw it out the window.

anyways the theory was that dee has some sort of illness that she hasn’t told the gang about yet, and that it was going to come into play somehow in dennis’ double life. it’s really weird to me that she was just reading a medical journal out of nowhere, and that she got a dna test out of nowhere. nobody in the gang seems to take their health that seriously, so it’s weird to me that she would have just up and done that without any sort of reasoning behind it.

secondly, the fact that dee seemingly sustained two neck injuries within a relatively close time frame (making dennis reynolds a murderer and old lady house) was also sort of suspicious. finally, her overall behavior this season has been far more acidic and “take no prisoners” than it has been in seasons past– i think it’s safe to say that she’s MUCH more brazen and emotional than she’s been before.

the assumption that i personally was running with was that, in the finale, dee would announce her mystery illness to the gang, mostly in a gambit to try and get dennis to stay in philly. since we know he cares about her a lot, he might be more inclined to stay if dee was sick.

as the season has progressed, though, especially within the past few weeks, i don’t think the theory’s gonna end up being true. they’ve been pushing macdennis way too strongly this season for the big twist in the finale to be anything else, i think.

(another alteration of this theory that i’ve seen is that dee just THINKS she’s sick, because she thinks she caught something from frank from swimming in his blood in the gang goes to a water park. in this version of the theory, it’s expected that something’s going to happen to frank in the finale, possibly related to his brain tumor.)

who else gets ashamed when reading posts on tumblr where it’s like, first few ppl agree on one opinion so ur like “ok yea”. then someone points out how wrong they are and bad for thinking that and ur like, “oh shit…. that’s totally true….. what have i done……” bc u inherently agree with ppl and struggle to form ur own opinions

Ok so I don’t know if this is anything interesting to point out but wELL I DID SOME RANDOM CLICKING AROUND IN EPISODES AGAIN AND FOUND MORE CUTE DETAILS

before Yuuri was hit with the thought to try and remake his Yuri on Ice track it seems like he was planning to skate his FS program to either Mozart or Antonin Dvorak! 

THIS BOY READY TO GO OUT ON THE ICE WITH CLASS I LOVE HIM

At least judging by the fact that our little nugget listens to a large playlist of their tracks as he tries to figure out his program

HOWEVER I ALSO FOUND A SHOT OF TRACKS HE USUALLY ENJOYS LISTENING TO 

IT DOESN’T REALLY SAY MUCH BUT

- Happy song??? How cute is this boy?? this makes me so happy as well??

- HEAVY SONG?? are we talking the emotionally heavy or the heavy metal heavy here….. no one knows

- sO MANY FAVORITE SONGS

- is that……a track list with 90′s songs? I CAN’T READ THE JAPANESE SO I MIGHT BE COMPLETELY WRONG BUT IN ANY CASE JUST THE THOUGHT OF IT IS SO FUNNY

- DJ? Yuuri is ready to fcking party and seduce some skating legends while he’s at it 

I JUST LOVE THIS BOY SO MUCH EVERYTHING HE DOES EXCITES ME ??? 

How Taylor Swift Played The Victim For A Decade And Made Her Entire Career

Ok, so Buzzfeed released this article about Taylor Swift on January 31st and here are some key points that really stood up for me. 

  1. On Taylor´s feminism: “But, as the Washington Post pointed out: “There’s a difference between being a feminist and calling yourself a feminist. Feminism is more than just supporting your girlfriends or churning out charming catchphrases about girl power; it’s a political movement, with political aims.”
  2. About Taylor´s squad: And, in actuality, her squad flouts inclusive feminist principles by being an exclusive club, and skews overwhelmingly white, slim, and heterosexual – and this is because Swift views feminism in relation to her own personal experience alone.
  3. Again on Taylor´s feminism: Far from expressing feminist values through actual, tangible means – such as, for example, speaking publicly about Kesha’s alleged sexual assault, offering an opinion on Trump’s campaign and election, or acknowledging the Women’s March through means other than a contrived tweet – Swift invokes feminism to ensure her posture as victim.
  4. On her feud with Katy Perry and the Bad Blood song: Put differently, she prevented the eruption of an undesirable rumour by creating a new one, which reveals Swift’s true genius: her ability to manipulate the lyrics and subjects of her songs in whichever way best suits her PR desires.
  5. On her feud with Nicki Minaj and the lack of recognition for black women in the music industry: Swift has become such an expert at building narratives that she doesn’t just see herself as the victim in stories explicitly about her, but the subject of every story. (…) She prioritised herself at the centre of a struggle faced by women of colour, while ignoring the fact that the system inherently benefits her.
  6. On the feud with Kim and Kanye about that line in Famous: The feud exposed the truth that white fragility is the most imperative component of Swift’s success. Performing white female melodrama has enabled Swift to establish her posture as victim and navigate any conflict with ease, devoid of culpability. But her conflict with West cannot be dismissed as an insignificant celebrity feud, leaving a trail of snake emojis in its wake – there are sinister undertones. It proved that Swift recognised the power her white womanhood affords her – presumed innocence and empathy – and used this to her advantage in repeated acts that she surely knew would damage West’s reputation and strengthen her own. Swift propagating this narrative of fragile white womanhood to villainise a black man is “ruthless” at best, and at worst, dangerous.


I think this article really explains why I don’t really like Taylor Swift and how her playing the role of the victim is really getting old and overused. No one believes she´s the victim and this has been shown ever since the ¨break up¨ with Harry Styles and overusing that one month relationship for over two years. And it became evident to the public how fake she really is with the Kanye and Kim feud and directly after that the whole deal with her ¨relationship¨ with Tom Hiddleston. So I finish this with the final paragraph of the article which summarizes my feelings in general about her. 


She’s all about narratives, and the reinvention of her image is the start of a new one. The question is, however, after being exposed playing the victim in plain sight for over a decade, will anyone believe it?

OK MAJOR THEORY TIME

So I’ve been having this theory, and it’s a bit complicated but hear me out….

Main point: it’s not anti that’s returning again, cos as proven by “Jack”

So if anti’s always been around, of course it’s not him appearing in that glitch in Detention. Cos in actuality…

It’s Jack himself.

Every time Anti appeared in a glitch he was either smiling, freaking out, covered in blood, or all three. But it doesn’t look that way this time. It’s different.

(i tried to get a better screenshot, but you can see it clear in the gifs) This isn’t a menacing looking face. Rather, it looks like Jack’s confused by something, maybe wondering if the camera can actually see him? cos when you look at when he’s adjusting his camera in a past prop hunt episode (couldnt get a better screenshot sorry :P)

He has the SAME LOOK as he was fixing the camera so it could see him.

And when “Jack” is responding to anything about anti, it’s all normal, even (dare I say) a bit too excited about all of it??

Oh but what about the pointing and the whole “Forgotten but just too afraid to remember biz?” Why would Jack point and why emphasize that?

well my friend, it’s definitely not cos we forgot about anti. pete’s sake, we were still including him in oxenfree fanart. NO, INSTEAD WE FORGOT ABOUT SAVING JACK!

WE FORGOT THAT THERE WAS NEVER A RESOLUTION TO “SAY GOODBYE”! We freaked out, tried to figure out how to save him for a bit, then poof jack’s all hunky dory saying he’s ok WHEN IN ACTUALLY IT WAS ANTI THE WHOLE TIME.

Jack saying how much fun he had with the community freaking us out, who’s to say Anti didn’t have fun either?? i mean he practically thrives off of it right? So all this time, we thought Jack was ok, when in reality we’ve just moved on from him, FORGOT ABOUT SAVING HIM, and carried on watching Anti like normal :). That is until the real Jack started to finally rebel a little by giving us a major clue…

It’s our fault that all this anti stuff happened, we were too afraid to think that we were never able to protect Jack from him. Quite possibly the real Jack knows this sad fact all too well and possibly blames us for it, and anti will never let us forget that we failed….

So don’t be surprised if in a video you hear somewhere in the distance:

Ok so I’ve seen some post going around saying what if Shiro heard Lance’s talk about his insecurities through the microphones in the helmets and I just wanted to point out that:

Lance talks about his insecurities in the middle of the episode and near the end of the episode when Lance shoot’s the warden arm to free slav, Shiro says this:

He basically calls lance the team sharpshooter, so my bet is that shiro definitely heard him and he wanted to inform lance that he is important to the team.

Error: Phil.exe

Title:  Error: Phil.exe

Genre: dark (or angst as it’s apparently called; I just don’t think it’s accurate though)

Summary: Computer viruses are a code that copies itself and destroys a computer system and its information. At the most, someone could loose their device. But the virus called Phil.exe wasn’t interested in corrupting a computer and then dying along with it. It was a sentient virus, and it had bigger plans that expanded beyond the computer world. All it needed was a host.

Word Count: 1500+ (this is just an introduction; I normally will aim for 3000-4000 words)

Additional Note: This comes from the virus!phan au which was designed by @maddox-rider! This is my own interpretation of it; it may not line up with other stories later but I will try and keep it close to what she has designed. Go check out her art!

LUCID DREAMING: HOW TO

SO LUCID DREAMING!!  

Some people asked because of my TONGUE IN CHEEK POST about it the other night, well!!! all it is, is being consciously aware that you’re dreaming. You can kinda train your brain to do it and it’s fukken awesome ok!  I learned from a bunch of books I got out from the library one summer back in high school and I have kept up all the habits since then until shit got weird but we don’t talk about that

sometimes you get to a point where you can control your dream and force yourself to dream about a certain thing . either way it’s really damn neat to just have conscious awareness while you’re asleep and if nothing else, it’s something fun to do that doesn’t cost anything.

I got into it a few years before Inception came out, if you can believe it. So when that movie came out talking about the same ideas my mind was  blown 

First things first:

1) DREAM RECALL:

This is your ability to actually remember your dreams. Because imagine, even if you end up having a lucid dream,  what’s the point if you completely forget it as soon as you’re awake? Some people think they don’t dream anymore but it isn’t true, everyone dreams. Some people just don’t remember.

So Write down  all your dreams, anything that you can remember as soon as you wake up.

I just text it to myself first thing in the morning and usually they’re super disjointed and barely readable but it’s just enough to have me remember them again. even if you can only remember little snippets, the more you do this the better you can get at remembering.

2) DREAM CUES

Dream cues are these little things that make you realize you’re asleep because they differ between reality and your dreams. They’re kind of like triggers that will make you realize you’re dreaming. The idea is to check in on these cues even when you’re awake, so that when it becomes a habit in real life, it will become a habit when you’re asleep.

It’s also a good way to check if you’re actually awake because sometimes dreams are super realistic. I’ve had a lot of dreams where I woke up in my bed, then did the reality check only to figure out I was dreaming.

Different people have different ones but there’s some common ones:

-mirrors: In real life you look like yourself. in a dream you’ll look like a really distorted version of yourself or like a completely different person. I don’t recommend this one because what you see in the mirror might freak you out into just waking up lol

-counting your fingers and seeing more or less than the amount of fingers you have

-electronics that don’t work

-text that changes when you read it, look away and then read it again

-dim lights [i hate light dimmers for this reason eugh]

-loose teeth

My personal ones are the and fingers and the changing text! So in real life, I count my fingers, and read some text, look away and read it again to see if it changes.

If I have more than 5 fingers, I realize I’m asleep and that’s where the lucid part starts.

Personally for me, all of these have served as dream cues, but these two are the ones that i literally check on. Another big one for me is if my teeth are loose, it’s an automatic cue for knowing I’m asleep.

INDUCING A LUCID DREAM

So you made a habit out of checking in on your dream cues and writing down your dreams. Now how do you actually do this thing….

There are some REALLY SPECIFIC METHODS To inducing a lucid dream . Some people practice one method that brings you from wakefulness directly into a dream, with NO LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. I find this a little rarer but it’s definitely happened to me

Others have the method where you fall asleep as usual, end up in a dream, and then your consciousness wakes up while you’re in the dream. This is more common I think.

my sleep science might be off but this is it as I’ve understood it.

so the general method is to go to bed super early. like 9pm. And set your alarm for Stupid O Clock. I am talking some ungodly hour that you will never be up, like 4:30.

Reason being: You will literally never go to sleep and immedeitly start dreaming. You have to have been asleep for a few hours, having gotten a few sleep cycles in. The longer you sleep, the deeper your sleep cycles run and the more restful sleep you’ll have as the night goes on. It’s only in the later sleep cycles that you start to dream.

This is the reason you’re groggy in the morning [you were just in the middle of your deepest sleep cycle] but not groggy at all if you wake up at like 12

So the goal is to wake up right before you’re gonna go into a deep sleep cycle.

Stay awake for a few minutes, go to the bathroom or something, read some stuff on lucid dreaming on your phone… You want to wake up your brain so that your mind is conscious and running even though you’re dead tired.

Now you can go back to sleep, and the conditions are pretty much met for having a lucid dream.

SO GENERALLY NOW, it’s really likely that you’re gonna have a regular dream.

But if you’ve been making a habit out of doing your dream cues/reality checks while you’re awake, at some point you’re gonna do it while you’re asleep.

stuff from the waking world carries over into dreamtown. it’s the same reason you’ll have super realistic dreams about your job or people you know.

IT’S ACTUALLY SUPER COOL When you do your dream-cues and you see different results from real life. Like I’ll count my fingers and realize there’s 6 of them and be like Ohhh shit! I’m asleep! Time to go wild.

Usually I just fly around like a motherfucker but it’s so cool to be your exact same self who is able to think about your family/friends/homework/life/memes except you’re flying

CONTROLLING THE DREAM

OK SO NOW THAT YOU’RE AWAKE while dreaming, you can  try controlling your dream. This is a bit harder to explain but in my opinion it’s as easy as focusing/dwelling on what you want to do..kind of like repeating a mantra mentally.

Like lets say you’re dreaming and you come across a house. As you’re walking towards it, tell yourself “Captain Kirk is in this house and we’re gonna have the time of our damn life.” TELL YOURSELF WITH CONVICTION! BELIEVE IT! CAPTAIN KIRK IS IN THE HOUSE! OVER AND OVER!

also try practising controlling on little things first. Like point to the sky and say “brighter” or “more purple” or “bluer” or think “I want it to be night time instead" and it SHOULD change.

STAYING IN THE DREAM

There’s 2 tricks I know of that will keep you in a dream for longer when you feel like you’re about to wake up and you don’t want to.

One is spinning: If you feel yourself waking up, try spinning around on the spot till you’re dizzy. Things will blur around you and then they will clear up and get super sharp! Especially spinning while crouching. I have no idea why this works, but it does and others have said the same thing.

The other is, when you feel like things are getting blurry, focus on ONE spot in the dream. I usually crouch and like, stare at the details and texture of the road really really close up. For some reason, pinpointing your focus on one little thing will refocus the dream.

finally,

READ UP!!

Honestly the more you read about lucid dreaming, the more likely you are to have one for yourself..Even by reading this you’re more likely to have one. It’s weird, but it works. When I would regularly read books on the topic they’d say the same thing and it was true. It’s kind of like, the fact that you’re aware that it can happen makes it likely to happen..

SO YEAH, before you go to sleep or when you wake up at 4 in the morning, google it, see what others have to say. Get your brain in gear for it. there’s lots of posts online that will probably talk about the same stuff that I have here but this is my legit personal experience with it and stuff over the years.

IN SHORT

  • DO YOUR DREAM CUES/REALITY CHECKS
  • WRITE DOWN YOUR DREAMS
  • SET YOUR ALARM FOR A REALLY DUMB TIME!!
  • HAPPY DREAMING
