opinion curator

I think this is an unpopular opinion, but I really don’t understand when people complain about this site because like? Unlike some other social media sites, no one’s forcing you to hear people’s shitty opinions and you can literally just unfollow someone if they’re being problematic. Like whenever people go on about how terrible this website is I just can’t relate because I follow the people I follow for a reason, yknow?

3, 5, and 7!

3.  Have you ever unfollowed someone over a fandom opinion?

So many people in Dragon Age fandom. SO MANY. And I’ve unfollowed a few in CR over character hate. Life is too short to have a Tumblr dashboard full of something that irritates me.

5.  Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?

From time to time. I’ll be honest, some of the generalized Vax hate has soured me on Kash/Keyleth, which sucks, because I did really enjoy that pairing, but before I did the aforementioned unfollowing, I saw more than one instance of propping up the pairing by shitting on Vax, and I didn’t unfollow soon enough to not get the two things subconsciously connected in my mind. Thus, an example of why unfollowing people whose fannish opinions bother you is something you should do before it affects your own opinions. Curate your own experience, kids, it makes fandom infinitely more fun.

7.  Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now?

Several former fandoms. Supernatural is the biggest offender, but Doctor Who is up there too. And Dragon Age fandom caused me to go from romancing Anders on my first two playthroughs of DA2 to cringing every time I hear his name mentioned. Sigh.

how do you not see the obvious Audrey Kawasaki influence? When I saw one of your wips on my dash I literally thought it was her work. not even subtle

Your lack of ability to discern or recognize obvious differences is not my problem. If Audrey had a problem with my work, she would have told me, as we are both in contact with each other, and she herself invited me to display work in a show she curated.  Her opinion is something I would respect, yours is worthless. 

HEY FASHION-INCLINED PEOPLE!!!!

A request from my brother:

“I’m looking for people that run fashion blogs or are interested in fashion and clothes and trends in such and are interested in creating content for a new online store and fashion website centered around independent designers and connecting everyday enthusiasts to them and each other.

We’d like to get in contact with people interested in creating high quality and intellectually rewarding content about fashion, including opinion pieces, outfit curations, discussions on trends, personal stories related to clothing or style, and anything else related to some aspect of fashion, such as art, music, literature, film, etc.”

My email is justin.shi@yale.edu.

Thank you!“
