On Samhain, also known as Halloween, the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. This allows for easier communication with spirits and improved divination. Samhain also celebrates the last harvest of the year and the beginning of the “darker half” of the calendar. Some people call it the witch’s new year.

it makes me sad that people outside of the toy collecting community will never have the full context of the “optibotimus fake coke commercial” disaster because it is just so funny if you were there when it happened
i’ll try to explain it as best i can regardless
optibotimus is a fairly prominent transformers toy reviewer. you could call his reviews the most baseline they could possibly be. Thew and Vangelus are on the far end of the “entertainment” side of toy reviews, Peaugh is on the far end of “purely informational,” Optibotimus sits squarely in the middle. He shows you the toy in front of a white screen, shows you what it can do, cracks a joke occasionally, and that’s it.
one day, optibotimus decides that he wants to run ads on his videos
fair enough, right? people do that. they put vids on youtube, run an ad on ‘em, get a little bit of pocket money.
how did he decide to do it?
he made an ad for coca-cola and started running it on his videos
he did not come to any sort of agreement with coke, he didn’t arrange for a deal.
he just made the ad, ran it on his video, and hoped that Coke would give him a brand deal because he was already running ads for them on his videos.
coke personally, politely, declined his offer.
his fans didn’t exactly care for it either.
I invite you all to watch it:
Yes, the video is 20 minutes long. just watch the first minute. watch the first minute knowing that that advertisement was made with no arrangement with Coca-Cola, the dude just thought that if he started running ads for Coke, Coke would start paying him.
I think he has become self aware. He sits at the front of our house at Peak Hours for dog walking, as most people pass by, to Recieve Compliments. Every 10 minutes i hear “Sweet jesus look at this beauty those ears those Blu Eyes”. Every time ive walked outside this hour I had to bring him up to the fence for An Onlooker to pet. His hunger for attention will never be satisfied. He will continue to long for validation of his beauty.

Do you have any room decor ideas that you could make with things lying around the house? xx
First things first:
I love questions like this!!
I’m not sure specifically on what kind of stuff you may be into (Are you into nature stuff, or maybe vintage aesthetics? Or maybe you really like pastels? Or maybe you host some macabre sentiments?), so I’ve compiled together here a variety of room decor tutorials! Hopefully one of these might fit your fancy! (And as always, feel free to ask again! Let me know what you’d like different!)
Nails or tacks, some string (in the colour of your choice!), and some bulldog clips (or paperclips, again, in the colour of your choice!). Hang up photos of your family, friends, places you might want to travel to, wish list items, your favourite characters! OOoor inspirational quotes! Recipes! Cute puppies! So many options!!
Maybe you’d like to bring nature into your room? Can’t say that you’d be able to find the items needed lying around in the house…but maybe literally around the house.
Grab a bag, head outside, and collect the ingredients above! (The activated charcoal is not necessary if you don’t have that in your collection!) The full tutorial is incredibly helpful, so please do go check it out in all its entirety.
