Short Rant

So, I have a short rant. Recently there was a fire in some apartment buildings in London. To honour the victims and raise money, a bunch of youtubers got together with some company (I think) and started a live stream on youtube to raise awareness about it. All Dan and Phil did was retweet something to spread awareness about it, and the entire chat was filled with, “WHERE ARE DNP?!?!” “I CAME FOR PHAN” and “I’M ONLY HERE CAUSE PHIL TWEETED” which is very disrespectful. Not everything is about dnp. If you would have actually spent time paying attention to what they’re doing, you would have known that they weren’t even in London. They were in America. It’s not only this tragedy where I’ve noticed people only caring about dnp. When the bombing happened in Manchester, people were spamming dnp to see if they were okay and they don’t even live in Manchester. Once they confirmed that they were, it was like it suddenly didn’t matter anymore. Like all of the people who died didn’t matter cause dnp were okay. It makes the rest of the phandom look bad when all of these demon phannies do stuff like this. It’s obviously okay for them to be concerned, but don’t make everything about dnp when it doesn’t have to be. Other people exist. I love dnp with all my heart, but I know that not everything is about them. Have some respect for other people. 

anonymous asked:

what is your least favorite architectural movement?

Although I think in 100 years the architecture done today will be bundled up under the ism: Post-Modernism (but that is a discussion for another day), there was a specific time when that movement became a joke of itself. Growing up as an architect during the advent of Deconstruction I can’t help to find some Post-Modernist buildings rather repulsive, but that is probably only because the only way to move forward was completely dissociating ourselves from that aesthetic.

Maybe a new generation of architects, removed from it by other styles and goals, can find beauty on these structures but for some of us it will be difficult if not impossible to ever celebrate this architectural style.

What do you think? Some of the worst offenders:
