now all it needs is a caption

@ the people adding fake captions on dnp's videos

fuck off.

i try not to get too real on here because serious conversation isn’t my forte, but i’m a bit pissed so bear with me.

if you don’t know, some people have been adding fake captions on phil is not on fire 8 (and possibly other videos idk), saying shit like ‘how gay are you right now’ and other phan related stuff. now, the fact that it’s phan isn’t even the problem, i’m sure dan and phil can take a joke.

however imagine being one of the people who genuinely need these captions to understand the content of the video. there are plenty of deaf and HoH people watching youtube videos - not to mention people who aren’t that fluent in english and find it easier to read than hear - and for them these captions are genuinely helpful! so when you add in stuff they haven’t actually said because it’s “funny”, all you’re achieving is keeping these people from understanding what’s going on. congrats, you’re a shitty person.

~ ok i’m done thank u for ur time ~

laurenjauregui: I’ve cried and I’ve thought and vented. I’ve been angry and sad and so hurt by the prospect of so many people around me feeling validated in their hatred or frightened for their safety and future. There is no in between. There is no justification for the support of such a person. I have been consuming for too long..being part of it for too long. There is way too much to be fighting for right now in this world. @lenadunham posted this with a beautiful beautiful caption..in these hours of darkness all we can do is come together and let our voices be heard as loud and as peacefully and as united as we can. We the people, of the United States of America, Land of the Free, Home of the Brave will have to organize and act and fight peacefully for our rights as the beautiful melting pot of human expression we are. We need to show the world that we are not afraid to be who we are. We are not tolerant of injustice and intolerance and ignorance. We are intelligent and strong and beautiful and we will NEVER allow our voices to be silenced. Not while my Constitution gives me a right to organize and protest and be involved and speak. I will use my voice for those who feel they do not have one, and we will all come together and fight this battle of social reform once and for all! Let’s show them that we are brave and that we spread love and peace and take no shit from anyone who expects our acceptance of their hatred. We will love them harder, because they can’t see the world we do. The world of safety and peace where no matter who we are, or where we come from, or how we choose to navigate this crazy world we’ve been given..we ALL have the right to Liberty and Justice and Happiness. I love you all! Keep spreading your love and your light and who you are. I encourage you to go out into your communities and be part of movements around you with people who are just as sick of this shit as we are. Let’s use our light and voices! Let’s start moving this darkness out of our consciousness and seriously find each other and the Earth again. I’m working on some stuff right now..putting together things getting in contact with people..We’ll do this the right way, the smart way.❤️❤️

Imagine sending a bath snap to the wrong person

You snapped the picture, adding the caption ‘Romantic bubble bath… now all I need is a man’ before sending it off to your friend Carla. The two of you often joked about how much you needed a significant other in your life, so pictures like this weren’t out of the ordinary.


Castiel’s phone lit up with a snapchat notification while he was sat in a diner with Sam and Dean, the three of them on a case while you were back at the bunker.

He opened it, revealing the picture of your legs in the bath, his mouth going dry as soon as he saw it.

“What’s up?” Sam asked, frowning at him.

“I’ve… I’ve got to go,” Cas told them, vanishing from the room in the blink of an eye.

Dean rolled his eyes, taking another mouthful of pie, “Friggin’ angels.”


Your eyes shot open and you sat straight up, splashing water from the tub when you heard the telltale flutter of wings that let you know an angel had arrived.

“Jesus, Cas,” you gasped, your hand coming up to your heart as it pounded with anxiety, “You scared me.”

“I- I’m a man,” he told you, his eyes flitting around the room.

You smiled fondly, confused, “Yes, you are.”

“You said, all you need is a man,” he reiterated, “I’m a man.”

Your jaw went slack, “Oh.”

Oh.

Idk if this makes sense, but I really love the way yoongi expresses support, whether to the fans or his members. There’s something about how he captions most of his comeback selfies with “you worked hard”, how he never fails to acknowledge effort and encourage it in such a touching way, how when a fan asked him to encourage her friend who wanted to pursue a career in composing, he wrote that he hopes he can work with that friend in the future. There’s just something about all this that’s so comforting to me.
He may be cool and composed while doing so, but his words hold so much warmth. He never fails to make it feel so real like I can literally feel him patting me on the back after a hard day whenever I read his encouragements. And oddly that’s more than enough to make me feel at ease maybe because it’s coming from someone who himself tires his soul night and day and who knows the value of kind words and words in general.
I’m just really thankful that he’s always got us on his mind, and I really hope that our encouragements as well can provide him with such strength whenever he’s in need.

You snapped the picture, adding the caption ‘Romantic bubble bath… now all I need is a man’ before sending it off to your friend Jennifer. The two of you often joked about how much you needed a significant other in your life, so pictures like this weren’t out of the ordinary.


Jensen was still down in the convention hall of the hotel - he and Jared had one more panel before they were done for the weekend. Jensen saw his phone light up with a snapchat, smiling when he saw it was from you.

“Hey, no phones at our panel!” Jared scorned him, causing the crowd to laugh.

“It’s from Y/N,” he defended, grinning, “She’s sent me a snapchat.”

Jared looked over his shoulder as he unlocked his phone, opening the picture.

Jensen spluttered, hiding his phone instantly, but not until Jared had already seen it.

Jared pulled his mic away from his mouth, Jensen doing the same.

“Holy shit,” Jared whispered, “Was that a hint?”

Jensen shook his head, swiping to the chat section, “Only one way to find out.”

He looked back up at the crowd, wetting his lips with his tongue as he awaited your reply.


You reached for your phone when you saw the screen light up with a notification, frowning when you saw it was Jensen. You opened up snapchat and saw the messages, blushing deeply when you realised you’d sent the last picture to him instead.

Panel finishes in 20.’

‘If the water’s still warm, I’d be happy to join you.’

We need some of Sweden’s feminist pop stars over here 

Feminism been a fact of Swedish music for awhile now, but people started to take notice recently when Sweden’s Got Talent winner Zara Larsson posted a picture of her stretching out a condom so she could wear it on her leg like a knee-high sock. The caption read, “To all the guys saying ‘my dick is too big for condoms’ TAKE A SEAT.”

It made international headlines for firing back at men who use that excuse to have sex with women without a protection, which is manipulative and never OK.

Misha’s phone lit up with a snapchat notification while he was out for dinner with Jared and Jensen.

He frowned as he opened the picture before a grin spread across his face.

“What’s got you so happy?” Jensen asked, taking a swig of his beer.

Misha put his napkin on the table and stood up as he typed out a reply, grinning to himself.

“Looks like I’m getting lucky tonight, boys,” he laughed, patting Jared’s shoulder as he left, “Don’t wait up.”


You reached for your phone when you saw the screen light up with a notification, frowning when you saw it was Misha. You opened up snapchat and saw the messages, blushing deeply when you realised you’d sent the last picture to him instead.

‘Don’t move, I’m on my way’

‘God, I’ve missed having you like this’

I feel like Shallura needs more video content (if I knew anything about doing that, I probably would do some myself).

But then I remembered that p much all my art has “Please do not repost” in the captions.
So people may not use my work in their vids (should they respect that). I do that because, obviously, I don’t want people stealing my work; I like to know where my art is shared and that people can find me.

So, from now on: If you want to use my art for vids or anything, please ask permission first, give credit, AND LINK ME!

I’d love to see it!

an incomplete list of my favourite lyrics from the album “69 love songs” by the magnetic fields
  • “you can’t use a bulldozer to study orchids”
  • “i’m so in love with you, girl, it’s like i’m on the moon // i can’t really breathe but i feel lighter”
  • “now that you’ve made me want to die // you tell me that you’re un-boyfriend-able”
  • “you need me like the wind needs the trees to blow in, like the moon needs poetry”
  • “i’ve never stayed up as late as this”
  • “some of it is just transcendental. some of it is just really dumb.”
  • “billie you’re a miracle, and god knows i need one”
  • “what if no show ever happened again? no Seven, no 8½, no Nine and no 10″
  • every single word of “papa was a rodeo”
  • “i’m off to the war // but you can be sure // i will know you’re // what i’m fighting for”
  • “she doesn’t use a fork // i don’t think i’ll go back to new york”
  • “you can’t open your mouth without telling a lie // but baby you know how to say goodbye”

Jared’s phone went off in the middle of an interview, your voice sounding ‘Pay me attention!’.

Both he and the interviewer laughed, and he shook his head.

“She set it as my ringtone whenever I get a notification,” he explained, pulling out his phone, “She’s more work than the dogs, I swear.”

The interviewer smiled at him, “You and Y/N have a close relationship. It’s obvious on the show.”

Jared’s ‘I don’t know what you mean’ died in his throat when he saw the snap.

The interviewer raised her eyebrows, and he mumbled, “Sorry,” as he typed out a reply.

Sebastian’s phone lit up with a snapchat notification while he doing an interview for Captain America, and he glanced at it where it rested beside him.

Seeing it was just a snapchat from you, he looked back at the interviewer, knowing that it probably wasn’t important.

“You can answer it,” she said, and he shook his head.

“It’s only Y/N,” he assured her.

“Well then you have to answer it,” she insisted, “My next question was about your relationship with her.”

He laughed, picking up his phone and typing in his code, “There is no relationship.”

“Are you sure?” she prompted, teasingly, and Seb shook his head, laughing.

He finally opened the snap, seeing the picture of your legs in the bath, and choked on his own saliva.

“Shit,” he mumbled, tapping out a reply quickly before putting his phone down.

“Are… are you okay?” the interviewer asked, eyeing him quizzically.

“Yeah,” he nodded, unconvincingly, “All good.”

“Okay… so, about you and Y/N-”


You reached for your phone when you saw the screen light up with a notification, frowning when you saw it was Seb. You opened up snapchat and saw the messages, blushing deeply when you realised you’d sent the last picture to him instead. 

That bath big enough for the both of us?

Because this interview is over soon

I could be with you in twenty minutes

anonymous asked:

Can you give me any advice on how to learn french with succes? Does listening to french music or watching movies in french actually help, if I'm still not too good at it?

Ok I wrote a huge wall of text so I’m going to try to shorten it 

Movies- No. They’re too long and they’re usually uncaptioned and just no. Even now even if I had a captioned movie I wouldn’t be able to get through it. And videos I almost always watch captioned because holy fuck is spoken French hard to understand. 

Try a youtuber like Cyprien. All his videos are captioned and they use p simple french w/o too much hard vocab. If you’re a beginner you might need to pause to see exactly what he’s saying if he’s talking fast, but generally it’s best to try to get the idea instead of the exact words if you can. Also rewatching videos is fine, I do it all the time, you understand more every time you do it. Also watching it with English captions once and then in French when you know what’s going on is fine too. 

A great  cyprien video to start with is Technophobe it was the first time I was able to just watch a french video and enjoy it without like translating in my head. 


Music- Yes. Just don’t think you have to understand everything. Even if you only get a few words, the point is to enjoy it. Even the stuff you don’t understand, just hearing it now will make it easier to learn later. 

For example, I did a project my sophomore year where I made a music video for a french song and I think I got maybe 2 lines total from the song and I did the video editing so I heard each line *many* times. But still, I heard alot of things that, when I actually learned what they meant later, I never had to worry about forgetting that vocab bc I’d heard it so much it was like I had already practiced it.

Looking up lyrics never hurts too. You don’t have to, but if I really like a song I’ll look up the lyrics so I can understand more of the big picture of what it’s about. Even if I do, though, I still don’t always understand them when I hear them in the song, so so don’t feel like yo have to. It’s about enjoying french media, not making yourself work to learn. If it was about work, noone would choose to do it. 

So just focus on enjoying it and the rest will come. 

Reading- Read books as long as you’re at the level where you’re not overwhelmed and need to look stuff up every sentence. Le Petit Prince is a popular one.

If those are too long for you, you can try stuff like childrens’ books. pauvre anne wasn’t too hard for me when I read it in class sophomore year, also I read a good one that was super easy to understand but it was also, like, very much Not Children’s. We all thought it would have some boring sappy kids’ ending but then someone, I forget who, jumped onto this big water jet that’s famous for being big and strong and killing people on impact and we were like ohhh. That’s where I learned the verb se suicider. I can’t remember the damn name tho ugh sorry. 

Try to avoid news articles and watching the news. Talking fast, big vocab, complicated sentence structures, it’s all v frustrating. 

Also there’s this one site 360.ch that has some interesting lgbt articles that are only maybe a page long. 


Last, some resources. 

Google translate really isn’t the best to use. It work for beginners, but when you’re at the point where you need to like really understand what you’re reading and actually write quality stuff, it’s not sufficient. 

ok so i know what i just said BUT google translate has an extension where you can highlight text to translate it and so you can just highlight a word real quick and then move on instead of having to stop and look it up. It’s rad I use it all the time I couldn’t live without it. 

wordreference.com has every meaning for a word you need. Like if I want to know how to say “really”, it will give me “vraiment”(truly) and also “tellement”(so much, very) and whatever other synonyms for those there are and any other meanings for really. It’s rad. 

linguee is great for figuring out the best word in context. Have you ever looked up a word just to get a long ass list of translations and some of them you know are obvs wrong but some of them you have no idea what they mean what if they’re just as wrong? (ex: looking up “to like”and getting french words for like, enjoy, appreciate, love, adore, etc. And you know you’re not trying to say “I appreciate this food”.) 

So much for avoiding the wall of text. 


Basically, just avoid overwhelming yourself. Everyone has, at some point, felt like they don’t understand anything and they never will. You’ll get there. Just focus on enjoying french media and appreciating the fact that you can enjoy this because of the french you do speak.

Steve’s phone lit up with a snapchat notification while he was working with Tony and Bruce in the lab.

Bruce noticed it and passed his cell over.

“It’s Y/N,” he commented, and Steve smiled, before his throat went dry as he saw the picture.

He looked up to check that neither of the others were watching before he typed off a reply, clearing his throat as he put his phone in his pocket.


You reached for your phone when you saw the screen light up with a notification, frowning when you saw it was Steve. You opened up snapchat and saw the messages, blushing deeply when you realised you’d sent the last picture to him instead.

I’m with Tony and Bruce at the moment, can’t leave

But maybe I could take you for fondue when we’re done?
