does seokjin still wear earrings nowadays? he used to back then but recently i havent been seeing him with it ;_;

ANON, ok i’m so sorry this has taken me so long to answer but - I’ve been doing some digging on this one, and you are so right, he hasn’t been wearing his earrings hardly at all that I could see.  I can’t find any evidence of earring wearing since Jin has gone blond.  He probably realizes earrings would only compete with his glorious eyebrows as far as flare goes, heh.   

He had them on at times during I Need U and Dope and even (although less frequently) during Run … and it also did seem like he used to wear earrings more that he does now, for sure he did way more in 2015 than he did this year i’d say.  Maybe he’s getting tired of them?  I don’t know!

Jin’s ears are so delightful anon, with his piercings or without!!  Part of the reason this ask took me so long is i kept getting distracted by jin’s cute ears I mean hhh:

With piercings

Or without piercings

they are the most pinkdorable ears in the universe!!

i cannot believe the article about marvel doing the right thing in essentially discarding female representation for ten years and the claim that dc doing Wonder Woman first is only to compete with their domineering stance on the movie front. just no. marvel definitely fucked up and they should be told. all of this only highlights to me the way the media tug on marvels dick for any form of content no matter the quality and dismiss what dc does as just a failure before it’s even been made. the article even had the audacity to say that wonder woman wont mean anything if it isn’t well reviewed??? i mean it’s almost a given when you look at dcs track record, no matter what they do it’s always overshadowed by marvel who ‘did it better’ or even 'the right way’.

let me take a direct quote from the article to highlight exactly what i have been talking about

'Feige wasn’t making female representation in the world’s most popular franchise a priority. But as frustrating as Feige’s comments may have been, it’s much easier now to admire the chess game Marvel has been playing.’

and one concerning dc

'Though they fared fine at the box office, those DC films were lambasted by critics, forcing the studio to soldier on in the shadow of a damaged brand. And if Marvel hadn’t already learned to take it slow and steady with directorial selection after losing first Patty Jenkins on Thor 2 and, more publicly, Edgar Wright on Ant-Man, then Warner can, again, serve as a reminder. Thor 2 and Ant-Man were, at least, lower-stakes projects. Warner Bros. lost director Michelle MacLaren from Wonder Woman and Seth Grahame-Smith from The Flash, two big movies the studio absolutely has to land in order to keep any momentum on The Justice League franchise. Hopes are high, yet easily shaken when it comes to Wonder Woman which is now in the hands of Patty Jenkins. But if that movie fails to land with audiences, Warner Bros. won’t get any extra credit for bringing fans a female-led superhero film first.’

the article also continually goes on about marvel using a 'take it slow’ attitude concerning female representation. i mean is that what you want from one of the worlds most popular brands?

i mean if that doesn’t say exactly what’s going on in the media concerning both companies rn then idk if you can be convinced otherwise.

as a sidenote they also talked shit about fox and sonys attempts at making comic book movies so i mean

High functioning autistic here, and I am horrid at interpreting both social cues and dynamics so if I am barking up the wrong tree entirely please tell me. A fair few of Sun's actions come across as... Problematic and /repeatedly/ so. The repetition is what stands out to me, as that is how I filter out false positives. A lot of, "I didn't mean it" justifications but as someone who has had to brute force social, good intentions don't cut it. Sun just has ridiculously good charisma/looks

Anonymous said:

Now chibi exaggerates. Not make things up whole cloth in regards to characters. I would not be surprised in the least if Sun is supposed to slowly get worse behavior wise over time so that the audience can comprehend how toxic influences like Adam get into someone’s life. It doesn’t /start/ that bad. It’s not like they can put Adam back in the bottle for flashbacks. And if you trick the audience before the reveal, they have less ground to complain about the characters not noticing I have found.

yeah, Sun’s behaviour has been a discussion point a few times recently (further links to discussion on this page)

2016′s Top Scores and Who Actually Won

Just went through the top scores to see how many ended up medaling! The lines through mean that gymnast either didn’t make it to the Olympics or didn’t qualify to that final.

All Around Top Scores

1. Simone Biles, 62.9
2. Laurie Hernandez, 60.85
3. Aly Raisman, 60.65
4. Gabby Douglas, 60.165
5. Angelina Melnikova, 60.067
6. Shang Chunsong, 59.7
7. Maggie Nichols, 59.699
8. MyKayla Skinner, 59.45

Who Actually Won

1. Simone Biles, 62.198
2. Aly Raisman, 60.098
3. Aliya Mustafina, 58.665

What Happened

Well, Laurie didn’t get to compete in the all-around, so for those who DID compete in the all-around final, the top two best scores of the year finished in the top two at the Olympics. Mustafina actually had the 25th highest all-around score in 2016, but only competed the AA twice prior to the Olympics and with falls both times, so with a mostly solid day, she was able to jump up the rankings to win bronze. What’s especially heartbreaking about this is that for those who made the final on the best scores list, Shang is third. #CriesForever

Vault Top Scores

1. Simone Biles, 16.0
2. MyKayla Skinner, 15.35
3. Oksana Chusovitina, 15.325
4. Giulia Steingruber, 15.15
– Maria Paseka, 15.15
6. Liu Jinru, 15.117
7. Emily Little, 15.012
8. Sae Miyakawa, 14.975

Who Actually Won

1. Simone Biles, 15.966
2. Maria Paseka, 15.253
3. Giulia Steingruber, 15.216

What Happened

Again Simone follows through but vault was a weird one in general. MyKayla didn’t go to the Olympics so that knocks her out, and then Chuso fell out of her Produnova so she’s gone too. It’s funny, though, because tied in fourth on the best scores list were Masha and Giulia with 15.15, so with MyKayla and Chuso out of the mix, the next two in line took up those spots.

Bars Top Scores

1. Madison Kocian, 15.9
2. Ashton Locklear, 15.85
3. Fan Yilin, 15.734

4. Daria Spiridonova, 15.65
– Gabby Douglas, 15.65
6. Natalia Kapitonova, 15.567
7. Elisabeth Seitz, 15.566
8. Shang Chunsong, 15.5
– Becky Downie, 15.5
– Sophie Scheder, 15.5

Who Actually Won

1. Aliya Mustafina, 15.9
2. Madison Kocian, 15.833
3. Sophie Scheder, 15.566

What Happened

SO, Aliya’s best bars score prior to the games was a 15.333 at Euros. But she added a crap ton of upgrades and polish before coming to the Games and managed to improve by a ton to win the gold. Scheder had the 8th best score of 15.5, which she also surpassed in Rio with her 15.566. Others in the mix for bars either didn’t make it past qualifications thanks to the crazy depth in the field (like Becky and Yilin) or struggled in the final (like Gabby and Daria). It’s also funny that Eli Seitz’s highest score of the year ended up being the score that Sophie won with, while Eli was 4th just 0.033 away.

Beam Top Scores

1. Simone Biles, 15.7
– Laurie Hernandez, 15.7
3. Sanne Wevers, 15.65
4. Angelina Melnikova, 15.4
5. Evgeniya Shelgunova, 15.25
6. Aly Raisman, 15.35
– Alyssa Baumann, 15.35
8. Seda Tutkhalyan, 15.333

Who Actually Won

1. Sanne Wevers, 15.466
2. Laurie Hernandez, 15.333
3. Simone Biles, 14.733

What Happened

Even though beam is usually the hardest to predict, the three best beam workers in 2016 ended up on the beam podium! SHOCKER. Not in the same order thanks to Simone’s hands down and Laurie’s over-scoring at home, but truly, these three were the ones who were consistently the strongest all year and after a quad of top beam workers missing out, they actually came through and reached the podium. But you can see in the “best scores” that beyond them, that’s where beam’s insanity comes in because all five of these women either didn’t make the final or even the Olympics.

Top Floor Scores

1. Simone Biles, 16.1
2. Aly Raisman, 15.7
3. Laurie Hernandez, 15.3
4. Angelina Melnikova, 15.2
– Maggie Nichols, 15.2

– Giulia Steingruber, 15.2
7. Mai Murakami, 15.1
8. Seda Tutkhalyan, 15.0
– Mao Yi, 15.0
– Claudia Fragapane, 15.0
– Catalina Ponor, 15.0

What Happened

The top two best scores ended up being the top two on the podium, which was expected. Beyond that, it was anyone’s game, and that’s how things ultimately worked out. This was a tricky one because the majority of the domestic overscoring happened on floor, most notably with the Russians, Chinese, and Romanians. Seda and Angelina were lucky to reach 14 internationally, let alone surpass 15, but because the first day of scoring at Russian Championships was literally insane, this gave us a bit of a false ranking. In the final, the bronze was going to come down to whoever had the best day. I thought it would’ve been Giulia, given that she’d done about 15 floor routines this year and got a 14.7 on almost all of them, but then she chose that very moment to implode and Amy Tinkler, whose highest floor score up to this point was only a 14.35 (she’s ranked 123rd for the year!), managed to have the routine of a lifetime when it counted.

Wrap Up

The top three scores in each individual final times five events means there were 15 medals up for grabs, and of the 15 who had the year’s best scores, 9 ended up medaling on the events predicted. If you only take into account the top three best scores in each individual final who actually MADE IT to the final, 11 out of 15 actually medaled!

Upon Riaki’s return to Bherna, she had gotten word that a Glavenus in the Jurassic Frontier was getting dangerously close. Normally, a village-saving mission would go to the local heroes or Wycademy hunters. But seeing as how currently she was the only competent hunter available, she decided that she could take it on.

Her preparations included her Blue Guild set, Dual Battleaxes, and two hired Palicos.

Once she was dropped off at the campsite, she grabbed her necessary items and began her search for the Glavenus. Without any Psychoserum to heighten her senses, she would have to rely on trial and error to comb the hunting grounds of the sword-tailed menace.

Mama, tell them. Kaneki isn't like Ichigo. He is honest with his feeling, and his feeling for touka just hidden from touka, not us, the readers. And Ishida Sui is not like author of bleach, he is better. And if touken doesn't canon, he probably prefer kaneki ended with such tragedy (I hope is not true) 😊😅

HEY GUYS LISTEN UP!

Kaneki is not Ichigo. KANEKI IS HONEST. SUI ISHIDA IS BETTER. KanekixTragedy is the only thing competing with touken.

Mama’s out.

The Forgotten History of Female Athletes Who Organized Their Own Olympics | Bitch Media
Men barred "those delightful creatures" from competing at the Olympics. So female athletes protested by making their own games.

In the early 1900s, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) only allowed women to compete in a handful of events. Only 22 women took part in the games held in 1900. But in the early 1900s a worldwide women’s movement was demanding political inclusion, with some success. As women gained the right to vote in Europe, Russia, and the United States, behind the scenes, some IOC members were quietly moving to expand women’s participation. But IOC President Baron Pierre de Coubertin was implacable, angling for the continued marginalization of women’s sports. After the 1912 Stockholm Games, he and many of his IOC colleagues believed “an Olympiad with females would be impractical, uninteresting, unaesthetic and improper.”

[…] To challenge IOC sexism, women and their allies organized alternative games, a vital yet largely forgotten act of political dissent. Everywhere women looked, the Olympic cards were stacked against them. The IOC, as led by Coubertin, opposed women’s full participation, as the minutes of the 1914 IOC general session made clear: “No women to participate in track and field, but as before—allowed to participate in fencing and swimming.”  Discrimination was baked into the master plans.Enter Alice Milliat, a French athlete and activist whose bold actions scythed a path for women’s participation in the Games. After the exclusion of women from track and field in Antwerp, Milliat founded the Fédération Sportive Féminine Internationale (FSFI) on October 31, 1921. At its first meeting, the group voted to establish a Women’s Olympics as an alternative to the male-centric Games. In total four Women’s Games were staged, in 1922 (Paris), 1926 (Gothenburg, Sweden), 1930 (Prague), and 1934 (London), with participants coming mostly from North America, Western Europe, and Japan.

The first Women’s Olympics in 1922 were largely a success. More than 20,000 people attended the single day of competition at Paris’s Stade Pershing, where athletes from five countries (Britain, Czechoslovakia, France, Switzerland, and the United States) competed in eleven events, more than twice as many as the IOC would include when it finally allowed more women’s track and field events in 1928. Newspapers of the day reported favorably, if somewhat backhandedly, on the strides women were making in sports. According to the New York Times, 1922 “was notable for the development of women athletes in all branches of competitions fitting to their sex. Remarkable progress was made by them, and almost overnight, they assumed a place of great prominence in the world of athletics.” No longer were “girl athletes … a decided novelty,” but “capable of impressive performances.”

Still tired. But! Storytime.

What are your thoughts on our mutual friend Rolf 'Jacob' Sartorious?

Oh I’m so glad you asked, I’ve been wanting to talk about this for ages. Rolf, to me, is little more than a disappointment, much like I’m sure he is to his parents. But I still fondly remember the time this small child entered my life, and this was through a discussion held by some of my friends. I hear the words ‘Jacob Sartrious’, and in my innocence I heard ‘Jaco Pastorius’, who happens to be a personal hero of mine due to his absolute bass playing brilliance. Seriously, go look up ‘Portrait of Tracy’. Now. Seriously.

So you can imagine my disappointment when I realised that these friends of mine were instead fanboying over the prepubescent lump of glitter and hair gel that was Jacob Sartorious. Now this kid, oooh boy. He has a following, doesn’t he? He’s practically a religion, one of which I look at with the same amount of respect that I have towards the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or those people who don’t believe in Australia (Actually, have you ever met somebody from Australia? Because I sure as hell haven’t). He’s a strange dude. Not very bright- he relies on snapchat filters to compensate. But the one thing that I, for the life of me, will never understand, is why people find him attractive. I know a hot guy when I see one (I’ll tell you about the swimming session I had for school sports the other day sometime later- god the boys in my grade are sexy), but I cannot for the life of me find any sort of appeal to this young male(?).

As far as my thoughts on him go, I don’t actually have too many. I actually see a lot of myself in him. Particularly the parts that other people consider ‘hot’ and his love of hair products.
And ooooh boy, love. The dude’s like a satanic rhinoceros, horny as all hell. I assume he does it because all the other celebrities do it, I’m pretty sure he hasn’t even gone through a single sex ed lesson. His seemingly desperate desire for a girlfriend is scary, really. The one thing I find scarier is the number of people who offer to BE his girlfriend. Actually no, I’m more scared by the number of older men who are writing all those comments. Anyways- the kid is practically running a Tinder profile on everything that isn’t Tinder. ‘I like long walks on the beach and giving articles of clothing to women.’

When it comes down to it, the kid is hit or miss; either you slap him in the face or forever regret your missed opportunity to do so.
