And I am already dreading having to go back to work tomorrow, like… I in all honesty could cry lol, because I really needed and enjoyed this time out and once you’re back in usual work routine everything - the whole JIB journey - will feel even more like a dream and like its never actually happened and yeah, this morning hurts. Therefore I think I’ll make the most of this day by reading, lounging in the garden and trying to avoid thinking about tomorrow. Have a sweet sunday, lovelies!!!
i know that people being on their phones has become like a symbol of apathy and uncaring but so many people i know use social media to share love. like yesterday i got to watch a wedding livestreamed to everyone who couldn’t make it. i’ve seen my friend slowly learn how to cope with being a teen mom because of a massive outpouring of “mumblr” support + tips. i’ve seen my friends come out as gay, learn to cook, discover the flaws in their feminism, work for social change, make good life choices, go to amazing places, develop passions, form educated opinions, learn to love themselves. i’ve seen people post the bravest recovery posts and shy political posts and everything in between.
and i don’t honestly care how edgy you think your art is. what you’re telling me when you draw grey people looking at a white screen is that you don’t care what happens to the other people in your life.
but i do. i care about the boy i’m in a long distance relationship with, but i also care about people i’ve never met. i’ve been following some people for three years and genuinely care about their experiences. i’m glad you’re still in touch with the people you love, even if you’re not paying attention directly to me! i get happy when you finally dump him! i’m sad when your cat gets sick! i give a shit.
i don’t think technology is taking empathy away from us. i think it’s changing it.
I am So Done with these criticisms I keep seeing like “It was good and all but Diego Luna didn’t work for me casting-wise, he was too wiry and soft-spoken, not action-movie enough” and I’m like??? SPY???? That’s the point????
Honestly people need to stop forcing the Hypermasculine Jason Statham Aesthetic bullshit irrelevantly onto characters that bear literally no comparison.
Thank you to all of the wonderful artists who participated, it was a bumpy ride but we made it in the end! <3 I love how it all turned out; it stayed true to my initial idea, but the umbrella became a sword and the literal darkness took a life of it’s oWN AND THAT IS SO COOL
ok but why do we need a tumblr discourse about Billie’s dislike of phones at concerts.. like would it kill you to not look at your phone in your pocket for three straight hours and just enjoy a goddamn concert without filming the whole thing and taking 1000 pictures of the event ???
like okay take one or two pictures as a memory and the put that shit away and maybe not act like “Billy Joe is a pretentious asshole douchebag” because he told you to make eye contact with him instead of fumbling with your phone
smartphones can be a great thing but some of ya’ll getting so offended that someone doesn’t share your love for them is so damn childish.. like this is one of the things you just have to accept and move on and not make a fucking drama out of it
i’m so over tumblr getting hyper defensive about everything technology related and then acting like everyone who doesn’t agree is some kind of heathen that deserves to be disrespected
listen, Billie Joe has his troubles with coming to terms with the modern age and smartphones and social media and that’s FINE because he grew up in a time where none of this was a thing and he has seen the crowds in front of him change over the years and he is ALLOWED to have negative feelings about this and to ask people to put their phones away, it’s not like he kicked you out the show lmao tf. he’s never been an asshole about it either and always does it with some layer or humor or a smile so maybe hold your horses kid.
It’s easter which means I’ll be dragged to family meeting, forced to lie about how pure family is, pretend I’m praying for 5 minutes, eat, leave, forget half of the racist/homophobic/transphobic shit that will be said and sleep for the rest of the day
