Pro-tip: when I don’t know you from Adam and you send a message asking me to do you a huge favor and it’s glaringly obvious from that message that you know nothing about my blog and have not bothered to read the FAQ page or the ask rules, I am not gonna do you that favor

Hi Anne, I just wanna say thank you for being so neutral and positive during your BTS Unpopular Op. session. It could've went downhill and fast, but I love how your responses were positive and even if you didn't agree, you didn't make the anons feel lowly about their opinions. I actually liked reading what people had to say. Also I LOVE your blog so please keep feeding my insatiable thir-I mean please keep up the amazing work! ❤️

hi anon~ sorry for just answering this now. And thank you! I actually really want to continue with the unpopular op thing. I’d probably try and publish one everyday. I didn’t start doing it to argue with ARMYs, I really genuinely want to know about what other people think. I also think sometimes some fans just have the wrong impression about things so I wanted a chance to know what those are and discuss them!!! ^_^♥ Also maybe I’m the one who has the wrong impression we never know hehe~

thanks again and I really love talking about these things with everyone. ^_^

Emily Andrews had sources telling her Will was shooting at least twice between NY and Kate's birthday. Both times she tweeted about it, both times she did not write an article. She claims there aren't any pictures filed, likely linked to complaints made by the Cambridges. Now Harry steps out for his first official engagement of 2016 for his own creation the Invictus Games and the same day she publishes three week old rumours based on a tumblr blog. Someone takes out frustration on the wrong guy.

I’m finding I don’t like most literary agents so far. And for reasons entirely unrelated to rejections or the difficulty of the field.

I started writing a rant that was several paragraphs, then deleted it all because the TL;DR of it is this. There’s this clique of lit agents that lean so far left that it makes gay look like the new straight. I can’t stand extremism on the left or right, but some of these people literally look like their education came from the dark side of tumblr. And it’s infuriating. 

Guess I’m looking in the wrong places. I wanted to find agents that I could tell wanted diversity, because of some major characters and events in the series. I need to work with someone open-minded. But if you look for ‘diversity’ in agents, you literally feel like you’re reading an extremist teenager’s tumblr blog. 

It’s publishing. Maybe it’s safer to assume that their norm is diverse, and their ‘diverse’ is just… whatever this is.

I’ve gotten a couple of asks from people wondering where their submissions went, so here’s a PSA:

• the queue is like, a month backed up so it could take a long time for your submission to post.

• sometimes tumblr eats asks, so every once and i while someone will submit something that never gets to me.

• i’m mistake prone af so i might’ve deleted the wrong message while queueing stuff up.

• i might have decided not to post your submission (although this has only happened a handful of times with overtly offensive submissions outright mocking victims or using slurs / ones that make me cringe way too hard to see the light of day).

if you want to check on the status of your submission, use tumblr’s messaging system (not asks; i don’t want to publish asks about upcoming posts if your submission is already queued, and i don’t want my main blog linked to this sideblog by answering privately). tell me your submission and how long ago you submitted it and i’ll see what i can do.

TL;DR - if you’re worried your submission might’ve gotten lost or deleted, wait a couple weeks and message me through tumblr’s chatbox.

A list of things I've done today

• I woke up at 7am and got out of bed just before 8
• cleaned my whole house, from top to bottom
• ALL of the washing. (And the bedsheets)
• I read four chapters of my book. (red dragon - Thomas Harris)
• I considered writing a blog post and then decided against it because what’s the point
• wrote a blog post but didn’t publish it
• I ate some pasta that didn’t taste very nice
• I took a mundane selfie
• googled “where is the remote”
• found remote (back of sofa)
• showered and brushed my hair very carefully
• reorganised one of my bookshelves, it’s very pastel pink now and the feng shui is REAL
• re-applied eyebrows 3 times because I kept doing them wrong and scrubbing them off

Now I’m laying in bed writing this because it makes me calm, jaks out buying food and on his way here, I asked him to get me a snack 🙃

Taraji P. Henson Thought She Was Watching Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl

Taraji P. Henson was one of the lucky stars to attend the Super Bowl on Sunday, and during the halftime show, the Empire actress shared an Instagram video of Coldplay’s halftime show performance. Nothing wrong with that, right? The only issue is her caption, which read, “YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper I am.” It wasn’t long before her followers replied with lots of crying-laughing face emoji — and as one commenter put it, “Somebody call Steve Harvey” — and amazingly, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine screenshotted the snap with a caption of his own, writing, “THIS.” Taraji later got wind of her mistake and tweeted out, “Oooooooopppps. Lmao! #Superbowl50.” T-Mobile, who aired a commercial with Steve Harvey poking fun at his Miss Universe snafu, responded to her tweet with a hilarious meme of the host.

THIS.

I asked a question for zayn anon but you never published it 😒 it's probably because you never seem to answer asks that have conflicting opinions and I don't know why ://// Some of us have heard things others haven't and it doesn't mean we are wrong :/ sigh...just frustrating I guess how blogs censor things idk 😒

oh i’m sorry i probably didn’t mean to! i have soooo many messages in my inbox and sometimes i forget to answer because i’ve moved on to a different topic. and if i don’t answer something with a “conflicting opinion” it’s usually because i don’t really know how to answer. i’m not purposely “censoring” anything i promise.

Family Feud Contestant Keeps Giving Wrong Answer For Another Word For ‘Mother’

It’s been a while since the classic game show Family Feud was trending online. But this new clip featuring a very confused contestant has exploded on Facebook. For some reason, the woman kept giving the same wrong answers that were already stated when trying to think of another word for mother.

Now apply the same rigorous fact-checking skills you used for the fish in The Enchantress Returns to every TV show. Like all medical, police and legal procedurals. I'm sure they'll keep your fact-checking occupied for years ahead. Or let's start with Glee, enough material to fill 1001 blog pages. Or any random show. They all get stuff technically wrong yet they get awards. Above all, the are Fiction. They aren't educational documentaries just like The Enchantress isn't a textbook on marine life.

You do know that a) I’m not a marine biologist, b) most visual media (films, television shows, and whatnot) have actual fact-checkers who are paid to check the facts, and c) there are people who work in publishing whose job it is to make sure that the fiction books stay grounded in reality…right?

See, these people are called copy editors (and sometimes fact-checkers). It’s an actual job in publishing as well as broadcasting (television).

“Besides an excellent command of language, copy editors need broad general knowledge for spotting factual errors; good critical thinking skills in order to recognize inconsistencies or vagueness; interpersonal skills for dealing with writers, other editors and designers; attention to detail; and a sense of style.” (x)

“A copy editor’s mandate also includes keeping an eye out for libel (defamatory untruths that could lead to lawsuits) and errors of fact. The extent to which copy editors must verify facts varies widely. In magazine and book publishing, this is usually considered an essential task; sometimes it falls on the shoulders of a copy editor, but often it is the job of a separate fact checker.“ (x)

See, the thing is, people learn from books. I don’t just mean text books. In schools, one of the ways teachers get kids to learn things they may not want to is through fiction. Making things exciting. 

You read Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet, you learn that in northern Canada trees sometimes explode in the middle of winter, and the book even tells you why. You read Jane Yolen’s Briar Rose and you learn about the Holocaust. Read SJ Kincaid’s Insignia, you learn about computer coding and the history of economics in America. Books are for teaching; for fun teaching. You could learn about horses or polar bears or astrophysics, or 1980s rock hits, or starfish, or the history of the Japanese shogunates or how zeppelins work or Chinese mythology or about random bits of London history or about Prague or blacksmithing and weaving or DaVinci or glassblowing or what the Red Scare was like or criminal forensics or marine biology whatever, and reading it will make learning about it fun if you have the right book. It can get a kid (I mean a kid-kid, like ages 8 or 9 or 10) into a field of interest they might never have even thought about before. That’s why reading is so important.

You don’t check your facts because your readers might notice a discrepancy. You check your facts so you’re not feeding kids (or adults) who don’t know any better false information.

Top 5 Best Sports Movies of All Time

Originally posted by moviegifsthatrock

A few months ago, in August 2015, Rolling Stone magazine published an article counting down their choices for the 30 best sports films of all time. The list included sports movies, “from boxing dramas to bowling comedies, surfing docs to slobs-versus-snobs battles on the links, trash-talking basketball showdowns to ninth-inning baseball stand-offs.” After going through each movie included in the Rolling Stone’s article, this blog post narrows down the top 5 included on their list.  Here are the Top 5 Best Sports Movies of All Time:

#5 – ‘Caddyshack‘ (1980)

Originally posted by allretrogifs

You can argue that it’s not the greatest golf movie of all time, but you’d be wrong; “eminently quotable and supremely re-watchable”, Caddyshack has earned a sizable cult following since arriving in theaters in the summer of 1980, and it’s easy to see why. From Rodney Dangerfield crushing one-liners like Jordan Spieth in the tee box and Bill Murray’s standout turn as slack-jawed groundskeeper Carl Spackler (locked in an eternal struggle to rid the course of “Varmint Cong,”) to Ted Knight’s villainous Judge Smails and Chevy Chase’s laconic, ironic Ty Webb, there’s something for everyone – even folks who hate golf. Little wonder then, that 35 years after it was first released, it remains the gold standard of shiftless, semi-stoned sports films and the spiritual forefather of flicks like The Big Lebowski.

#4 – ‘Raging Bull‘ (1980)

Originally posted by thefilmfatale

“I didn’t know anything about boxing,” director Martin Scorsese once confessed, which probably explains why Raging Bull is such a brutal, unromantic portrait of the sport and the film’s real-life protagonist — the charmless but utterly compelling Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro). Shooting in black & white and incorporating innovative fight scenes that emphasized raw violence, Scorsese didn’t so much make a boxing movie as he continued a thread from his earlier films, exploring the ways that masculinity poisons everyone in its path. Less a biopic than a psychological study of what it takes to get in the ring.

#3 – ‘The Bad News Bears‘ (1976)

Originally posted by grimesgallagher

Not every youngster grows up to be Mike Trout. Most of us grind through our Little League years on the scrub-end of bench, more interested in the post-game pizza party than the score. That’s what makes The Bad News Bears so timeless — even if the sight of Walter Matthau playing a beer-guzzling single guy overseeing latchkey children screams “Yes, this most definitely is the 1970s.” Writer Bill Lancaster and director Michael Ritchie capture the pressure grown-ups put on pre-teens who have more on their minds than sports. But they also convey the bond that develops among kids who never expected to care so much about whether they win or lose.

#2 – ‘Rocky‘ (1976)

Originally posted by rebelartssociety

When Stallone reprised his role once again in 2015 for Creed, his performance received wide acclaim and he received his first Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor, along with his third Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor, the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actor and several other accolades. There’s a reason the original Rocky won a Best Picture Oscar: It’s a surprisingly lived-in, sensitive drama about a broken-down boxer who gets one last, very unlikely chance to prove himself against the World Heavyweight Champion, played by a wonderful Carl Weathers (just because you’re a nemesis doesn’t mean you can’t have a soul).

#1 – ‘Hoop Dreams‘ (1994)

Originally posted by svjm0n

Initially inspired by its makers’ shared obsession with basketball, Rolling Stone says, this story of inner-city dreams started as an idea for a 30-minute nonfiction short about playground hoopsters. It then evolved into a three-hour odyssey about high school kids William Gates and Arthur Agee as they try to make their way to the NBA. A landmark American documentary, this compassionate labor of love from filmmakers Steve James, Peter Gilbert and Frederick Marx has plenty of on-court action and suspense. (It’s possible no single free throw has ever been so nerve-wracking in the history of cinema.) But Hoop Dreams is even more powerful as a look at poverty, racial inequality and adolescence — the agonies of everyday life that sports only occasionally help us forget.

In fact, the pros do it all the time for the runway and red-carpet events. Hairstylist Teddi Cranford shows us how to think outside of the jewelry box.
