or did nothing happen

Did you ever just slip really casually into deep depression? Nothing happened, but suddenly it’s time to withdraw from all social activities and leave whatever groups you were a part of, cause nothing matters and death is coming.

I'm glad that Matt mentioned he is neutral when it comes to shipping. He mentioned he'd advise against people getting in abusive relationships in real life, which I agree, and then he said "BUT this is fiction, so if shipping makes people enjoy SW, it's cool. However people engage with the franchise is good" He also agreed, that if reylo did happen, it's nothing new because Luke & MaraJade and Revan & Bastilla. He's trying to be openminded about it, but ant*s are twisting his words like always.

I didn’t see the abusive relationships comment but I can see ants having a field day with that. Wonder if perhaps he was talking about… idk… a man choking his pregnant wife? But again. This is fiction. Fiction.

Kylo Ren and Rey are not in a relationship. They are on opposite sides of a war, so their relationship isn’t abuse.

But yeah, ants will always twist people’s words to make it into something it’s not. Matt saying he doesn’t condone abusive relationships irl has nothing to do with what he perceives as abusive in Star Wars.

Fun times.

Thank you for talking about your concerns re: Sony/Columbia and Rob Stringer. I thought I was the only one who felt sick to my stomach at the thought of the man who has been friends with Simon for years, and was head of the US label that helped to closet H & L, being the one to sign H. I don't know why people are excited, because the power dynamics are really messed up now, and there's no guarantee that the stunts are going to stop for L anytime soon. Trying to have hope, but it's hard. :(

It’s very hard, and you’re perfectly welcome, anon.

I thought I had posted about Rob Stringer in the fall, but all I can find is some articles I uploaded, so I’ll revisit now. Stringer has spent his career at Sony, he’s been running labels there since the early 90s, and his brother was a main exec and CEO of Sony Corp (not music) for quite some time. Stringer has headed Columbia since 2008, and he’s done extensive business with Simon Cowell in that capacity. Indeed, Simon was the first quote in the Billboard article announcing Stringer’s appointment as head of Sony this October. Their working relationship has been extensive, as far as I can tell. He has credited his work with Simon on XFactor acts as his gateway to success for getting Glee to work, which was hugely responsible for his success turning Columbia around. [Adele as well, and he’s partly responsible for a lot of a resurgent trend of U.K. artists’ US success.] He has called Simon the “best A&R guy he knows” in multiple interviews.

One Direction signed to Columbia in 2012 as they were breaking the American market; the closet clamped down during this time.

Sony purchased controlling shares in Syco in July of 2015 – paying £85 million total for it, and absorbing the £70 million debt it had accrued. While making £45 million from it personallyis somewhat pathetic for Simon, that’s a far better fate than being jettisoned from Sony and declaring the company bankrupt within five years. The buyout was, it would appear, the best possible outcome for Simon given the failures of his television series, losing One Direction, and being unable to produce a suitably earning substitute.

Rob Stringer was announced the new head of Sony mid-October 2016.

I say all this to suggest that thinking of a ‘fresh start’ for Rob Stringer or Harry is not logically sound. Rob Stringer has been involved in their business since 2012 – but even say for argument’s sake that perhaps he didn’t determine their marketing. But Rob Stringer has been calling the shots at Sony since this fall (and potentially had input before that official announcement). And we know Sony now holds the Syco strings and has since July 2015, a date we are all very aware of – so Rob Stringer stepping into the office in the last six months has certainly had power to ameliorate the situation, and he has not done so.

Harry has been constructed as the big fish, the Justin Timberlake, almost since the beginning. It seems Sony’s going to be damned if they don’t get what they’ve always angled for, by hook or by crook. Given what we have seen, they’ve been successful at backing Harry into a corner, as well as Louis, with profound effects for Liam and Niall as well.

Columbia and Sony are sure to promote Harry’s music thoroughly, because it could make them a great deal of money. But that is the equation. It is very much in their best interests not to help Niall, Louis, and Liam or One Direction, as that would distract dollars and time from Harry’s solo work, which will make them a fortune. It is quite evident by now that Sony has had the power to step in but have not, because such an extreme power imbalance in negotiating is much more expedient for their bottom line. They’ve been monstrous and it’s gotten them Harry’s contract, which is what they wanted.

Hope is not any easy thing in such a situation. I think patience will continue to be the watchword. 

Jack Zimmermann was accustomed to dealing with difficult situations; he was captain of the Samwell Men’s Hockey team after all, but this? This was never in the job description.

“Can I tell you a secret?” Bitty whispered into the side of Jack’s neck, breath hot and sweet against his skin. The kegster ended a while ago but Bitty was still feeling the effects. When he fell off the coffee table attempting to dance to All the Single Ladies, Jack swept in ready to piggyback him to bed.

“Alright,” Jack said, mouthing I got this in Lardo’s direction before heading to the stairs.

“I don’t wanna be a single lady anymore,” His voice faltered and Jack became acutely aware of Bitty’s thighs around his hips. “I want a person. Everybody else has got a person.”

“With moves like that I don’t think you’ll have to wait long,” Jack said, supressing a chuckle.

“Mmhmm,” Bitty mumbled, fighting a losing war against sleep. Jack pushed open the door to Bitty’s room with his foot and ducked inside.

the reason why rick didn’t act when negan said he was going to kill carl is because he knew it would be futile

rick had already tried begging once before in 7x01 when negan told him to cut carl’s arm off. he was hysterical, he volunteered his own arm, he pleaded, he did everything he could to save his son and it did nothing – only negan had the power to stop what was happening. moreover, negan had wanted to get rick into that emotional state.

he wasn’t going to give that to negan again.

in 7x16, when negan threatens to kill carl and then bash rick’s hands (rick only gives negan permission to do the latter, by the way), rick finds himself in the same position he was in during 7x01. except he’s a different man now: this time he’s not going to bend to negan’s will, and most importantly, this time he knows that whatever he does in that moment cannot save his son.

this means that rick has only two options before him: 

  1. he can sob and plead as carl is killed in front of him
  2. he can swear his revenge on negan as carl is killed in front of him

he’s learned from past experience that the first option wouldn’t do anything to stop negan, and that it would only give negan the satisfaction of breaking rick grimes once more. if negan was going to kill carl, rick couldn’t let that become another moment where he bows down to negan; instead, it was a promise that this act would be avenged, no matter what.

rick grimes loves his children more than anything else in the world.

am i annoyed that we didn’t get a scene of rick and carl reuniting? yes. am i annoyed that we haven’t had much father/son interaction this season? yes. but just because we don’t see hugs and bonding onscreen doesn’t mean that there aren’t a million of those moments going on off-screen.
