good job my son, i am proud of you

She was a pit stop, a road block, a life lesson. One I wasn’t meant to build a home in. She was a town you visit and think about, but not the town you raise your children in. She’s the town that will suffocate you if you don’t leave. The one others look at and go “why do they stay?“
I reluctantly pushed the gas pedal forward, crying when I saw it in the rear view mirror. I desperately tried to circle around and find that town again - but it was blown off the map. That town no longer exists and I’m so thankful that when I searched for it, only remembering the good times I had there - forgetting the rocky foundation, the sinkhole in the middle - it stayed hidden from me. That town taught me lessons, it showed me what I can feel. It also showed me hate, anger, depression, and my worth. That town was a pit stop - not a home.

I’ll continue to push the gas pedal forward.

Lance is attractive

Fucking fight me on this Barbara ok hERE WE GO


• WHEN LANCE FLIRTS WITH GIRLS IN SPACE MALL THEY GIGGLE
- being a girl, who talks to girls, I know that girls don’t giggle unless they like it and are more likely to shoot poisonous glares at strangers who flirt with them
- if a girl giggles at a stranger who flirts with them she’s likely interested
- if she’s interested in a stranger it’s probably because he’s good looking

• LANCE DRESSES THE BEST
- he just does
- everyone knows this
- even 80’s Lance dresses the best

• BLUE IS ATTRACTIVE
- I don’t remember where I heard this, but apparently some social study drew the conclusion that when men wear blue they are generally received as more good looking

• PLAXUM KISSED HIM
- um she knew him for like a day or two
- made some battle plans with him and then suddenly decided smooching him up was the best course of action
- listen man,, people don’t go kissing other strangers just so show their appreciation, she was definitely at least SOMEWHAT attracted to him

• HE HAS SHINY TEETH
- yeah okay this is probably a stylistic thing but um
- I have more than one screenshot of Lance with a small sparkle on his teeth, usually when he smirks
- those things are pearly white and pretty af

• HE HAS THOSE MUSCLES
- did you see him in the cryo pod
- muscles are portrayed as attractive by your friendly neighborhood Media™

• HE IS TALL
- also portrayed as attractive by your friendly neighborhood Media™

• I AM IN LOVE WITH HIM
- guys I only fall in love with attractive people, trust me,,

• THIS HAS BEEN A PSA THANK YOU

• bonus Keith is also in love with him so I mean how many people falling in love with him does it take for someone to realize that he is a good looking motherfucker

How to Kill Feelings of Inadequacy

1. Choose to like, love, value, and believe in yourself. Choose to be your greatest allay – and the best friend you could have.

2. Ask a good friend if they’ll tell you what they like about you most. Then believe what they are saying – don’t just push their words aside.

3. Commit to discovering what you’re good at and enjoy, then invest time and energy on developing those traits.

4. Don’t exalt others’ gifts as if they matter more than yours. Every talent is important. Don’t right off your personal strengths.

5. Learn to show yourself compassion when you struggle or you fail. And remember “you are human” - so you’re going to make mistakes.

6. Notice ways that you are growing … ways you’re changing over time. Give yourself some credit for this – you are different from before.

“You want an award for that?”

Where Leo falls in your houses can show where you want validation from yourself and others. This can manifest in expressing yourself in a certain way, and then expecting others to praise you in return. Where your Sun is on your natal chart will show why you want that validation. Of course, aspects to the Sun would diversify the expression.

There’s nothing wrong with being validated or getting validation. Just remember that validation is given from the heart (the body part that Leo rules ironically,) not from obligation!

Leo Ruling the Houses

Leo ruling the 1st House: You want people to validate you when you act like yourself, whether it’s good or not.

Leo ruling the 12th House: You want people to validate you on things you are not aware of and/or hide, whether they know it or not.

Sun in the Houses

Sun in the 1st House: You want people to validate you because you believe that the validation will make you more aware of yourself.

Sun in the 2nd House: You want people to validate you because you believe that the validation will bring you confidence and security.

Sun in the 12th House: You want people to validate you because you believe it will help you find who you truly are.

i remember the first time i saw a trailer for Split in the movie theaters. i was with family and the theater was full and i’d been mildly enjoying the trailers and perked up a bit when the tell-tale ominous music of a horror movie trailer started, because i love good thrillers.

except then it was frame after frame after frame of a person with dissociative identity disorder being portrayed as everyone’s boogey man, the shrieks of the little girl protagonists as he appeared wearing different clothes and a different voice, people in the theater jumping and giggling every time they showed the man doing something horrific. and i felt frozen in my seat.

my sister leaned over to me when it was finished and said “i want to see that” with a look on her face like it was the greatest trailer she’d ever seen.

like it wasn’t a punch to my gut everytime i heard someone whisper “psycho” or “crazy” and other terrible things. like in that moment i didn’t feel like running away from all these people, like i didn’t feel unsafe and filthy. because these people getting their thrills from a demonizing potrayal of a mental illness.

and the thing is, it matters.

because if i bring it up people will say “oh but it’s not really mental illness, like depression or something. he was just fucking crazy which is totally scary haha”. yeah well, not haha. not haha because DID is a real mental illness but that’s not what it looks like. people with DID aren’t murderers or dangerous. but now, because movies like Split are all people have seen of illnesses like DID, that’s their frame of reference.

the media does it with DID, with schizophrenia, with every single personality disorder, with bipolar, with everything else that is “scary”. raising awareness for depression and anxiety is important, they’re valid and serious illnesses. but hardly anyone tries to protect people with “scary” disorders. this halloween when costumes of the main character crop up, people will giggle and buy it because it’s so creepy and cool.

i’m reminded that, although i don’t have DID, much of my mental illness is defined by symptoms that are used in other horror movies. that people who have “scary” disorders are the entertainment in everyone else’s world. and for people who do have DID, that movie is absolutely devastating.

so if you buy a ticket to see Split, please know that’s it’s not harmless entertainment or a good thrill. it’s fucking ableism and you’re being ableist if you go see it.

Tarjei’s interview with TV2.

Translation:

Speaking - Inteviewer, Even Torgat, Sebstian Warholm, Tarjei Sandvik Moe.

I: The name “Antiteater” [translated Anti-theatre] is not a coincidence as it really isn’t theatre of the old variety that the boys are making.

E: We started Antiteateret a few years ago when I went to folkehøgskole [sort of like a college], and we saw quite a lot of theatre. And I noticed then that there wasn’t a lot of theatre that appealed to me, as a young person.

I: And these are the rules of Antiteateret:

E: That we don’t make boring theatre, and that we make theatre that is relevant to society.

I: And there’s one more you haven’t mentioned…

E: What’s that?

I: That it can’t be longer than an hour and a half.

E: Yeah, that’s also a rule we have. Can’t be more than an hour and a half.

I: The characters of the play are themselves.

E: When we started this process, we began with ourselves as the template, and then of course we’ve taken some artistic liberties in places, but that’s where we started, to make material that people could recognize themselves in.

I: Some audience members put in a little more effort than others to see the show. There’s a person coming from Korea, and I suspect it might have something to do with the guy to the right here.

T: Yeah, it’s very nice no matter who comes, but we don’t have any subtitles, so they’ll just have to understand what they understand.

I: Although he has Koreans coming to see him, Tarjei hasn’t lost his grip. He’s still down to earth?

S: He’s very down to earth.

E: He’s quite a diva.

T: I’m super down to earth!

E: He’s incredibly down to earth.

S: That he is.

I: But it isn’t only Tarjei who brings in fans - Sebastian is also recognized by many. You can’t forget Linus i svingen and Himmelblå [Norwegian shows] either, though.

S: You got me there! Can’t do that. Remember when I first came? (does take off gesture)

E: You shot up.

S: Holy fuck, yeah.

E: Yeah, that’s a problem, there’s quite a few Jul i svingen fans, all the way from Asia. From India.

I: The boys have no doubt: the premiere is gonna be a success.

E/T: It’ll be good.

S: We can’t wait.

Humans are weird

Ok, getting on the humans are weird bandwagon….

It surprises me that we haven’t talked about the most obvious thing: humans imagine things. Humans outright make shit up. (Like these posts?) Human stories often aren’t retellings of things that actually happened. Art often isn’t a depiction of true events. Humans - for want of a better word - humans sublimate. They transform their experiences into outlandish non-reality for each others’ amusement.

It takes forever for first contact to start because the aliens planning it keep getting confused by first radio, then television. Some of these depictions can’t be possible - but which ones? The first time War of the Worlds reaches the Kuiper belt, someone panics and has to double check that a more aggressive group hasn’t actually invaded.

After humans are finally integrated into galactic culture, some issues crop up.

“Did you clean the waste facility?” the Janitorial Supervisor asks.

“Well, I would have,” the human starts, then proceeds to tell an outrageous story about a cleaning bot with a knife strapped to its back which has the entire crew searching the ship for hours. The entire crew except for the humans.

The Captain finds the humans “searching” the self-poisoning cabinet in one of the crew quarters.

“Oh my god,” the First Officer says, on seeing the Captain’s dust-speckled upper ears. “Oh my god, I can’t believe you really fell for that. Stabby is a cryptid, Harold!”

The Captain’s name is not Harold, but that is another, even longer story.

The Captain exhales. “What is a cryptid?”

The assistant medical officer sits up straighter, his drink sloshing dangerously. The Captain has learned what “a gleam in his eye” means and how to detect it. They sit, resigned. There’s no escaping now.

An hour later, the Captain explains the concept of cryptids in considerably less detail to the embarrassed and confused Supervisor. Along with the concept of lying.

“But how do you know the difference?” the Supervisor asks, wringing their tentacles in mixed embarrassment and worry.

“Find another human,” the Captain advises. “Check for signs of mirth.”

This turns out to be prescient, because on their next planetary stop, two of the human field officers come running back into the base camp, out of breath and without the rest of their scouting team.

“Nasty buggers with teeth!” one gasps. Though the other officers appear skeptical, the Captain glances at the First Officer, who is already setting down her meal and grabbing her favorite flamethrower. The assistant medical officer yanks his kit straps over his shoulders, face grim.

“Arm yourselves,” the Captain tells the rest.

It takes about four hours, but they get everyone back more or less intact. The humans change the sign in the rec room on the ship to read: “Us: 6, Them: 0″. There is a ritual raising of liquor-filled glasses, even by the injured who are forbidden self-poisoning. The Captain begins temporary hibernation very relieved that humans are so willing to count other species as “us”.

When they ask the First Officer about it two cycles later, the First Officer looks confused, then knowing.

“My great grandmother remembers when you first showed up. They picked your people for first contact for a reason, didn’t they?”

“We look the most like you.”

“Yeah, well, that was a bad call. Gran says humans debated for months whether or not you were just other humans with good prosthetic makeup.”

The Captain blinks at this. “Most peoples are shocked and upset to learn the rest of the sentient universe does not share their appearance. Wait.” They pause. “Is that why we had so many applicants for the Janitorial position?”

The First Officer ignores that, as she usually does when the Captain doesn’t really want to know the answer.

“Do you know why cryptids exist? Why horror and violence and monsters exist in our stories?” she asks instead.

The Captain twitches both sets of ears ‘no’. “It seems unnecessary to frighten yourselves over things that don’t exist.”

“But nasty buggers with teeth do exist, even if we haven’t met them yet,” she says grimly. “And we were ready, weren’t we?”

It’s true. The humans on board have been terrifyingly adaptable, even in their violence.

The Captain feels their way carefully. “You think about things that don’t exist… sometimes even things that distress and terrify you… so that you can be ready when you face real things that distress and terrify you?”

“See, this is why you’re the Captain, Harold.” The First Officer slaps their shoulder hump cheerfully, careful to avoid the spines. “And better yet, we share the things we imagine with each other. It’s like a mental vaccine.”

“And it works?”

“Eh, sometimes. It’s not perfect. Sometimes we don’t mark our vaccines properly, or don’t realize we’re adding things we didn’t mean to. Some of them have a bad effect on some people, for various reasons. But we joined the galactic community in less than a generation. Has any other species ever done that?”

“You imagined us before you met us.”

“Now you’re getting it.”

I remember reading 13 Reasons Why when I was in 6th grade which is about 11 years ago now so seeing it come to life after all these years is really cool BUT, i also remember trying to kill myself after reading the book when i was literally just a child so I’m really worried about how the younger generation will take this story. I think the show does a pretty good job of showing the true horrific nature of Suicide, the people you leave behind, the bullying, but when it comes down to it the source material really did romanticize suicide by making it into this grand gesture of sadness and i don’t know man. So to all you kids out there, please remember that suicide is not pretty or romantic.

Why I can’t and won’t finish watching Iron Fist

Before anyone tries to jump down my throat about being a stupid SJW who only cares about the race angle, I would first like to point out that I enjoyed the hell out of Daredevil, another Marvel Netflix show starring a white man practicing Asian martial arts. It’s all in the execution, guys. And the execution here is garbage.

Let’s start with the martial arts. For the love of fuck, if you just HAVE to get a generic white man to play the lead, the least you could do was get one who was good at traditional martial arts. There are a lot of them. Charlie Cox, one Netflix recommendation over, pulls off some of the best fight scenes I have ever seen in a TV show (also, the man can act, so that helps too). Last month, I watched a red-belt student of mine in a local production of Macbeth. At twelve, that kid has more talent (in the acting and martial arts departments) than this Finn Jones tool.

Jessica Henwick’s form is nothing to write home about but at least she’s better than Jones. And both our action heroes would benefit greatly from some less shitty fight choreography and editing. (Guys, just adding loud ‘swoosh’ sound effects isn’t going to trick me into thinking the sword is swinging faster. I can see it).

To add insult to injury, the show condescendingly tries to make me believe that this pasty-ass piece of mediocrity is a better martial artist than Colleen Wing?? Just has him casually trounce her in her own dojo. With those wibbly-wobbly stances, son? I don’t think so. This is not real life, nor is it good fiction. This is some flabby-ass white guy’s jerk-off fantasy of being super awesome and showing up the hot Asian chick without any understanding martial arts whatsoever.

The acting in this show ranges from serviceable to painfully inept (lookin’ at you Meachum Jr. or whatever the fuck your name is, I’ll have forgotten your whole existence by tomorrow for all the impression you leave). Even the competent performances in this show only serve to remind me of more interesting characters from Netflix’s other Marvel shows. For example, Jessica Stroup’s acting is similar to Deborah Ann Woll’s performance as Karen Page, only serving to remind me that Karen Page alone is a more interesting character with more compelling scenes than half the cast of Iron Fist put together.

I will say that Colleen Wing is quite appealing and I applaud Henwick for making her both tough and charming, not an easy line to walk. If I wanted to be mean, I could point out that she is essentially just a Claire Temple 2.0 in terms of her temperament and her role as shelter and support to the Main White Guy at the point of her introduction. But I don’t actually want to pick on Colleen. She’s cute and I like her.

Now, back to being mean: STOP trying to make white characters look cool by having them speak Chinese (or any language they can’t speak for that matter, though I feel Mandarin generally gets a special kind of mangling for the crime of being a tonal language). It doesn’t sound cool. I hate to have to be the one to tell you this, guys. It makes you sound like a fucking idiot. Okay, sure, maybe you succeeded in making your white English-speaking audience think, ‘yeah, that’s really cool, he must be super smart and badass, I want to be like that.’ But White people, I am telling you this for your own good: you don’t want to be like that. Because as cool as that butchered-ass Mandarin may sound to you, it’s like a band-saw to my eardrums. It brings everything to a cringing, teeth-grinding halt in the middle of what might otherwise be a perfectly good scene. Remember when Wilson Fisk had a conversation with Madame Gao in ‘Mandarin’? That was the worst part of Netflix’s Daredevil. Worse, it made me embarrassed for an actor I greatly admire. So, to whoever decided it was a great idea to have Wilson Fisk show off his Mandarin, thanks dickhead. You wrecked an entire scene for my favorite Marvel villain.

Oh yeah, and if any of you want to try to tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, fucking come at me bro. I have a black belt and 10+ years of training in traditional martial arts. I am a Chinese-American woman, proficient in Japanese and Mandarin, and I double majored in East Asian History and Buddhist studies.

Oh, did I mention that our protagonist keeps condescendingly spouting mystical pseudo-Buddhist bullshit to everyone he meets? And then throws temper tantrums when they (shock!) don’t take him seriously? God, I hate this show.

If I want to see better acting, I can go see a middle school play. If I want to see better fighting, I can go to the dojo and watch my seven-year-old green belts spar. If I want to hear Buddhist philosophy mangled by self-impressed white people, I can go to the yoga studio next door. 

Are Sangwoo’s emotions genuine?

I’ve seen the word ‘love’ is being used a lot lately by the fans. Does Sangwoo really love Yoonbum or not? Does he feel any emotions at all? How genuine and real his emotions can be?

There are 3 possibilities based on certain personalities:

  1. He’s written as a psychopath and doesn’t and will never truly love Yoonbum.
  2. He’s suffering from some sort of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and is using the ‘numbing’ method to cope with everything. But he can fall in love.
  3. He has Borderline Personality Disorder and loves Yoonbum.

1. Antisocial Personality Disorder

I know Koogi didn’t do any researches about the disorders so keep in mind these are more about certain personalities. I’m not focusing on the disorders! Let’s imagine what happens if Sangwoo is written as a ‘stereotypical’ psychopath/crazy person (with some psychology facts).

Psychopaths have very shallow feelings. They do not understand fear at all, they lack empathy and do not feel guilt. There are certain emotions such as love and sadness and they do not feel those like others do. There are several panels with Sangwoo with question marks next to him, showing he’s genuinely confused because he doesn’t understand Yoonbum’s fear“Of course it’s dark, it’s a basement!!!?” or when he asks Yoonbum what is he doing when Yoonbum is trying to run away. He expects Yoonbum to stay quiet while he’s cutting him. He shows no empathy when Yoonbum talks about his past, even calls it “Boring”. There’s especially a panel I came across yesterday, of Sangwoo misinterpreting Yoonbum’s expression which leads me to believe Sangwoo does not understand ‘upset’, ‘sad’ or ‘scared’ because his ‘emotions’ are very limited, mostly to anger and summarized to feeling good, feeling bad.

Everything is a game for Sangwoo. And people are the toys. That shows how shallow he is. Think about him throughout the chapters. Every single move he made was for a game.

He plays until he’s bored of the game and then throws away the toys when there are no benefits for him in the game or when the game is not fun anymore. This is especially hard for a lot of fans to accept because they can’t believe after everything someone would just end it like that. But psychopaths do!

Sangwoo’s love for Yoonbum as a psychopath is not love at all. It’s self-centered. It’s about Sangwoo, not about Yoonbum. Psychopaths grow up learning from others. It helps them survive and fit in like a normal person but in the end they do not truly understand those feelings. Sangwoo does things to show affection but those are things he THINKS must be done in that certain situation and because he does not really understand them, they look wrong, out of place and weird. (like the bathroom scene or when he hugs Bum in the car or after they kill the man from the gaybar )

Even when showing affection and care, he’s doing those because he wants to and because there’s some sort of benefit for him.
He’s always treated Bum differently (from Day 1) because he is special but doing so, he always acts as if he’s doing Bum a favor, while in reality he’s doing it because there’s an advantage in it for him. He’s having fun and playing:

In brief, In his mind, he’s being nice to Bum, he might even think he’s in love. He’s giving him ‘gifts’ and ‘rewards’ because he wants him to cheer up, understand him or stop whining but his perception of ‘love’ and ‘care’ is very shallow and wrong and it will stay like that. Even if he ever tells Bum he loves him, it’s not the same love people talk about. It’s Sangwoo’s kind of love. Bum is special to him and he’s Sangwoo’s favorite toy! Sangwoo wants  him now but Yoonbum will be thrown away the moment he’s broken or useless.


2. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

“Love and feelings are nothing but weaknesses.”
You’ve probably heard that sentence or similar sentences to it from a lot of villains. The ones who are ambitious and want to take over the world. They believe feelings are unnecessary and make you weak.

We know Sangwoo is a victim of child abuse but we don’t know how bad the abuse was. Was there any sexual abuse involved? We also know he witnessed horrible events. The murder of his parents (whether it was himself who did it or his father). These sort of things usually lead to post traumatic stress disorder. Sometimes the victims use the ‘numbing’ method to be able to live on. This means they turn off their emotions and feelings to cope with the horrible past experiences. They might see feelings as weaknesses and we can see a lot of that in chapter 5:

“You know what? I hate guys like you the most. Guys that are too scared to die but are always complaining. Too absorbed with pitying themselves to do anything. Stop going on about how lonely you are. I hate that shit!”

In brief, while he can relate to Yoonbum, he hides his true feelings and thoughts in order to stay strong. He doesn’t show any emotions but he is capable of feeling them.

Now why this theory might be wrong? because people with PTSD, usually don’t even want to talk about/remember their past because it’s too painful for them but we saw Sangwoo talk about his past without any problem and he didn’t seem fazed at all. He didn’t even show any empathy when Bum spoke. So… back to number 1.


3. Borderline Personality Disorder

I’ve already wrote 2 long posts in February about Sangwoo’s BPD symptoms: PART 1, PART 2 so check those out if you haven’t yet.

While I think it’s a good theory, the thing about people with BPD is that their emotions are too intense. They feel TOO MUCH. No matter what the type is. At least we’ve seen Yoonbum switch between the feelings of love and hate quite a lot and even cry because the feelings hurt and he was confused… while Sangwoo’s feelings throughout the chapters is pretty much static. It goes from anger to frustration to boredom and etc (shallow emotions, so again, back to number 1!). We’ve only seen him in a rollercoaster of emotions once and that was when he thought Yoonbum ran away. However, that was a panic attack! Anxiety is what causes panic attacks. While fear and anxiety are interrelated, they’re not the same thing. He mostly felt hurt and betrayed, he was mostly angry. While I’ve talked about his fear of abandonment many times, that could also just be a panic attack triggered when he thought Yoonbum ‘betrayed/left/lied to’ him. It could also be a symptom of PTSD since he even had a vivid flashback.

But since these are not supposed to be on point, let’s not be very nitpicky. If he in fact has BPD, he’s already most likely in love with Yoonbum and he’d almost be destroyed if Yoonbum leaves him. (He might even consider killing himself or Yoonbum before that happens.)



So as a conclusion you can see why a lot of people might want to support the 3rd theory. Because Sangwoo will be vulnerable and in love with Yoonbum (and well, it’s more BL-ish :S). I’m not against that idea but personally I find the 1st theory more interesting and I think more facts and evidences lead to the 1st theory. He’s proven himself a psychopath over and over by showing no guilt/remorse, no empathy and no emotions and being impulsive and reckless is also a symptom of Antisocial Personality Disorder and not just BPD.

But in the end I suppose it depends on the author. Maybe Sangwoo will be the first psychopath to ever fall in love :p

All images belong to Lezhin. Artist/Author: Koogi

But like… the Rogue One Crew being famous. I mean, everyone talks about Luke and Wedge taking the call sign Rogue Squadron in their honor, but think about it:

  • Leia met Cassian exactly once. She was on a “diplomatic mission” where she “lost” some ships to rebels, he was in charge of bringing the ships home. They didn’t talk to each other, they just nodded at each other across a crowded room and left. Years later, Leia tries to remember all the details of this moment, but they keep eluding her.
  • Luke doesn’t even bother hiding his hero worship for Jyn. She’s like him, he thinks, a normal person who was pulled into the fight because of her father, who was a hero, too, who was an orphan like him, who’s guardians died, and who became an amazing hero. Nobody teases him for it, it’s Jyn Erso after all.
  • pretty much everyone is convinced that Chirrut and Baze were secretly Jedi. They were heroes who showed up when the galaxy needed them most, they sacrificed themselves for the greater good, and they guarded a Jedi temple… what else could they be?
  • (remember: the majority of the active rebel soldiers grew up during the Clone Wars, the Jedi were their childhood heroes, and even if they pretended to forget that, they never truly did)
  • Bodhi Rook, the ordinary pilot who stood up and fought for the right thing, he’s the hero of every single former Imperial. Nobody is subtle about it, either. Bodhi Rook, who never thought of himself as special in any way, becomes a legend just as famous as the Jedi of old
  • stories about the famous crew of Rogue One are treasured and passed down to every new recruit. They are part of the history of the Rebellion, and incredibly important part, and they are never forgotten
  • Han pretends not to care much for the tales of Rogue One, but he can’t help but think of Bodhi Rook, the Imperial, who was like Han was once, and who didn’t become a criminal, who became a hero instead. Sometimes, in the darkest of nights, Han wonders if he could have made the same choices Bodhi made
  • K2 is remembered for his loyalty, and at least some people start discussing the ethics of wiping robots
  • there are long, drawn out debates on whether or not Jyn and Cassian were a couple. Nobody is sure, but the romantics (including Luke) would like to think so
  • in contrast, everyone agrees that Baze and Chirrut were married
  • there is a short lived idea to use Rogue One for PR. It’s shot down immediately. The crew of Rogue One are the heroes of the rebellion, they are theirs, and nobody gets to use that

anonymous asked:

Of all the Cartoon Network shows, which ones do you think had the most consistent quality?

Let me preface this by saying… obviously nothing against PPG because it’s my favorite show forever and is perfect and lovely, but yeah… S5 + S6… were just not… the best. And the quality definitely dipped when Craig started working on Foster’s and, although it makes sense that they kept the series going ‘cause CN wanted more episodes, it just wasn’t as good after that. Which really sucks!

But I’d say Ed, Edd, ‘n’ Eddy. I haven’t watched the show in years but I remember it being absolutely consistent in quality across the board, and it just kept getting better and better. I seriously don’t think that show ever jumped the shark, even when they switched up the plot from summer vacation to them being in school. And I think it’s mostly ‘cause Danny Antonucci worked on it the whole time and was able to give consistent direction.

Highlights of Roman Reigns on Talk is Jericho. 

  • Roman calling himself a meatball.
  • That’s it. Put that on my tombstone. 
  • Roman and the Usos being the rowdiest boys to put office furniture together.
  • Dean likes to trade vodka bottles. 
  • Roman and Seth are getting along better.
  • Roman saying the Shield broke up too early, but saying “hell no” to a reunion. 
  • Roman being thankful that he was “a fatass” when he went to Canada for football, because it meant him being released and going to wrestling.
  • Roman shaving his head to reinvent himself.
  • Roman talking about how he had a fat booty.
  • Roman feeling like he’s the pick of the litter and now going one on one with Undertaker. 
  • He gives absolutely no fucks if you boo him or not.
  • He tells the younger guys to work the camera because it’s the magic of cinematography. 
  • He loved throwing Undertaker over the top rope at the Royal Rumble. 
  • Roman and Jericho are Game of Thrones buddies and not “ amateurs” when it comes to trivia. 
  • Josh (one of the Usos) telling Roman that the people in this company are trying to accomplish what Roman has already done and that made him think. 
  • Roman was a stud in high school. 
  • Roman swears a lot and I love it.
  • Roman knew Brock was gonna beat the fuck outta him which is why he pissed him off and made it a fight. 
  • Roman’s mom cries during his matches and texts him because they’re too intense.
  • Roman ran into Bret Hart backstage after Brock v. Roman at WM31 and Bret said “instant classic” to their match. (And we all know Bret is Roman’s favorite.)
  • Roman and Sheamus are good friends after their championship feud.
  • “Shield hugs” are a thing and have happened several times. Remember when they performed at a house show and took a helicopter to RAW? SHIELD hug.
  • Roman loves his last man standing match with the Big Show and championship match with Triple H at Wrestlemania 32.
  • He knows exactly how Chicago and Philly feel about him.
  • They have traveled the world and seen nothing, but the show is theirs.
  • Roman impersonating some wisdom he got from Dream. “He has it and he can’t get rid of it if he tried.” So, to all the haters that say he has no charisma and shit on him on Twitter, Dream believed in Roman so “fuck you”.

You should listen to the interview. It’s great.

**That show is THE SHIT and if you haven’t seen it yet, you should before reading this post b/c spoilers

Aries: Toph- she’s confident (but also kind of insecure), impulsive, never backs down from a challenge, stubborn, selfish, and innovative (metalbending, hello?)

Taurus: Iroh- he’s a super chill dude, wise, comes off as lazy but is actually super competent, stands by his principles, and enjoys the sensual side of life

Gemini: Aang- he has issues with confrontation, is curious to a fault, addicted to pranks, uses deception/manipulation to resolve conflict (remember The Great Divide?) and is THE epitome of an evolved, self-realized gemini

Cancer: Appa the cabbage merchant- cries a lot, is really attached to his cabbages, just a super sad dude all around

Leo: Roku- (in his younger days) he was kind of a show off, maintained his honor and reputation while striving to do the right thing, was loyal to a fault (which is why he didn’t kill sozin when he should have) overall a good guy

Virgo: Sokka- he’s intelligent, analytical, self-critical, hard-working, gets anxious when he’s in the spotlight, and has a bit of an inferiority complex

Libra: Katara- she has a strong sense of justice, can easily see both sides of an issue (which is why she was the first to reach out to zuko), is both logical and romantic, and basically “balances” relationships in the group, holding everyone together

Scorpio: Zuko- the poster-child for Suffering™, constantly tries to reconcile his inner darkness with his natural propensity to be good, experienced pain, humiliation, and betrayel, but comes out of the ashes as a better person

Sagittarius: Ty Lee- literally just out here to have a good time; she’s a little flighty and unpredictable, comes off as silly/vapid though she’s actually pretty smart and a little scared deep down, and she will take impulsive risks when she has to (turning on Azula in season 3)

Capricorn: Azula- she’s cold, ruthless, cynical, efficient, and will use any means to accomplish her goals; she plays on people’s insecurities to manipulate them- Azual’s a great example of the darker expression of Capricorn

Aquarius: Suki- says “fuck you” to gender roles, is capable and independent, very unique but prides herself in belonging a group (the kyoshi warriors) 

Pisces: Princess Yue- comes off as sweet, vulnerable, and otherworldly, but has unshakable principles and inner strength; not afraid to sacrifice herself for the greater good- Yue is one of the higher expressions of the Piscean martyr archetype

I will always love One Direction. But, I wish media would let it rest for now. I remember everywhere Niall went after “This Town” came out, it seemed like the song, and embarking on a solo career, took a back burner to questions about the band returning. 

Today, asking if they’ve spoken to each other is one thing, but playing a lengthy 1D montage while one is on a program to promote a solo album is just…unnecessary.

They’re not going on shows and giving interviews to talk about 1D. Leave the past in the past for a bit. Give them all time and the opportunity they deserve, to establish themselves as solo artists, without harping on about what was. Start the 1D talk again when the ten year reunion is imminent.

I’ve always been good at overthinking.
The machinery in my head is constantly turning and when I try to shut it off, the hot iron material burns my hands. So I let things continue and the sounds become louder. The same words repeat over and over again: ERROR, ERROR, ERROR. There is an error in my system and the hardware is malfunctioning, but I can’t stop. I can’t stop thinking and the oil from the machines is leaking. Soon enough, it will set fire to my head.

I’ve always been good at hiding.
Even my mother can’t find me sometimes. She’ll search for me in every room of our house, not realizing that I’m following in her shadow. I feel sorry for her, but she’s the one who taught me how to blend in. How to mold my edges and become someone else. How to be the perfect daughter, the one all her peers praise, but deep down don’t care about.

I’ve always been good at miscommunication.
My father doesn’t talk much, but sometimes I get the feeling that he’s speaking to me without words. His eyes always flicker so bright and the furrow that forms between his eyebrows is prominent. When he meets my gaze and his lips curl, I try not to flinch. It’s a smile you will never understand the meaning of. I learned from him best, how to make my silence feel like a thunderstorm, but he never taught me how to control it. I’ve wrecked places and left people homeless.

I’ve always been good at pretending.
My friends are the best audience any actor could ever ask for. They remember that it’s all a show and none of it is real. So when I bruise myself, the concept that I will forget and move on in an hour or so is something that is commonly understood. Nobody ever expects me to actually get hurt. Nobody ever expects a plot twist. I hope that the day I betray them, they don’t get too angry.

I’ve always been good at empathizing.  
Tell me your problems and I’ll make them my own. Tell me your imperfections and I’ll give you pieces of myself, if you want them. Tell me you’re lonely and I’ll be at your doorstep. God, I’ll crush my own heart between my palms if you asked me to. I’ll do anything to make anybody happy, even if it brings my own doom. I am a tragedy.
