Toby Stephens really deserves every single award for his portrayal of James McGraw/Flint. The range of emotion he can express with such minimal expressions blows my mind. (via @amuseoffyre‘s post <3)

i don’t want to be rude, but it makes laugh when people say that Teen Top aren’t legendary? Like honestly they accomplished so much for a group coming from an agency that literally started with them, their agency is just bad at promoting them and you only care about popular and new groups tbh

The term “knife-like choreography” was invented for them, not for Infinite or SHINee (who are amazing dancers btw I love them so much), it pisses me off so much when they’re not even mentionned in best dancers because they are some of the best dancers, Changjo was in the TOP 10 best kpop dancers, they have some of the hardest dances in Kpop so excuse me but seeing some groups whose choreography is not even that hard compared to Teen Top, Infinite or SHINee is seriously sad.

They were one of the very first groups to have an European tour in 2013, even bigger groups from bigger agencies haven’t done it yet, that’s huge. 

Supa Luv was the promotional song for Beastly in Asia and that was less than ONE year after their debut, how is that not legendary? How can you look at them and say that they do not deserves as much respect as other older groups just because YOU don’t know them? Just because you don’t take the time to explore KPop and think that only groups who have millions and millions of views are great you think no one knows about them?

Hello! I am v interested in the chav discourse that you mentioned in your tags (and also in the weird fandom discourse about Harry being 'posh', which I find really strange though I think it comes from a misunderstanding of what 'posh' actually signifies). I think of 'chav' and 'chavvy' as slur words so always do a double-take when I see them used even in a neutral way. To me it implies working-classness but also (potential) petty criminality - so it's really not a term to use of someone else -1

I think Louis’s athleisure looks are all about the audience he is trying to reach with his EDM collaborations, and that audience is much wider than a UK one which might understand his look as communicating his working-classness… (I know you weren’t using ‘chav’ lightly, I hope my previous didn’t suggest that - I’d be off anon if I wasn’t at work! my url is kit-catclub. would love to discuss with you as I always appreciate your views) 2

*******

Thanks for your ask! I’ve been hoping for an ask to help focus my incoherent rage at the way people have been talking about Louis and about working-class people.  I won’t really be able to touch on Harry - except I think what’s going on is his original position as the posh one in One Direction (which I wrote about here) has overlapped with people’s feelings about him the most celebrity member of One Direction - when as you say they’re very different.

I think the best way to explain my reaction to the way people have been using the word ‘chav’ is with a metaphor.  Lets imagine girl direction for a moment  - and instead of people worrying that Louis is coming across as a ‘chav’ people are worried that girl!Louis is coming across as a slut.  People write elaborate asks about how they’re worried that certain things she’s doing will make her come across as a slut and damage her reputation.  Anons talk about how her styling is creating a certain image and they want her to wear different clothes because the general public might think she was a slut - and that erases successful businesswoman!Louis and superstar!Louis.

I think most fans would recognise this as quite hateful rhetoric - not just about girl!Louis, but about women more generally. Chav isn’t just a slur, because it’s a bad thing to suggest about someone, it’s a slur because it conveys a hateful view about a group of people. People who loudly worry that someone your a fan of is being forced to come across as a slut - you are promoting a hateful view of women. People who loudly worry that Louis is coming across as a ‘chav’ are promoting a hateful view of working-class people.

I’m being a little bit kinder than I feel here, because I’m aware that some of B’s anons could be very young and repeating ideas that they haven’t fully processed. But someone actually used the phrase ‘You can take the boy out of Doncaster, but you can’t take Doncaster out of the boy’ (although they didn’t say Doncaster).  And that view is vile and vile is the nicest thing I could say about it (I’ve just been reading the report of the Hillsborough independant inquiry - I would actually say that such a view is murderous).

People who are like - oh it’s so terrible that Louis is seen in public eating McDonalds and wearing trackpants and smoking - that ruins his image - can pretend all they like that they’re just talking about public image - but they’re actually judging Louis.  There is every reason to think that he does in fact smoke, eat McDonalds and wear trackpants.  (And they’re also revealing that they have monstrous, abhorrent, snobbish views - but I sort of covered that already).

The other thing I want to say about this whole mess is to talk directly about what ‘chav’ means. People have been prepared to throw out some really specific signifiers of things that Louis (and even worse Lottie) are doing that makes them come across as ‘Chavs’.  It is smoking and McDonalds and Trackpants and airport fights.  Just like the term sluts is fundamentally criticising unruly women - the term chavs is criticising unruly working-class people. All those signifiers are things that are contrary to good middle class ideas of what moral citizens look like (I’m not going to expand on this idea now - although I could go on for some time - but I think Charlie Brooker nails it in this piece about Jamie Oliver). The implication of Louis coming across as a ‘chav’ isn’t just that he’s coming across as working-class - but he’s coming across as a working-class person who is disgusting and dangerous because he won’t do what he’s told. (I’m going to park the question of Louis’ actual class position then or now and how that relates to all this - this post is about image).

This is a really interesting contrast to One Direction - who were very much launched in in the UK in the immediate aftermath of the London riots - as working-class boys made good who were compliant and would perform for middle-class people (I go more into that idea here).  It’s a very different positioning from where they started - so I can see why it makes people anxious - but I have a very different reaction. 

I am very much in favour of unruly working-class people, just as I am very much in favour of unruly women. I don’t know, I don’t think we can know, where Louis image is coming from, how he’s positioning himself, what various pressures he is navigating or what he feels about it.  But I’m certainly not going to suggest that an image of compliance and willingness to perform for power is somehow better than an unruly image.

does it bother anyone else when people say the shield should reunite? & when I say they shouldn’t reunite, I don’t mean they should do it later, I mean they shouldn’t ever.

As a kid, I was always picked on for being middle eastern and having thick eyebrows, or being “hairy,” but now that everyone wants them, y’all don’t have them naturally and the way you color your brows looks tacky as hell.. karma for the untalented, ungifted, and hairless I see

I made a post a while ago about the time duplicates of the TMNT 2012 kids turning into Space Pirates(!!!) and I was thinking about that again so here are some headcanons I’ve come up with so far:

  • -the original person to suggest it was Raph in a very sarcastic tone because Donnie had gotten arrested for stealing again, and this is the eleventh time they’ve had to break him out of jail why not just make it official already
  • -and then Mikey in a very not sarcastic manner wouldn’t let the idea go and essentially one by one they all ended up on board with the plan to become Intergalactic Space Pirates
  • -their original timeline selves had already accumulated plenty of enemies and bounties on their collective heads, might as well roll with the roles they’ve been given.
  • -Leo was tempted into it because SPACE ANYTHING is always tempting to him.
  • -also because typically they only steal from ‘bad guys’ and have a sort of Robin Hood thing going on.
  • -except when Donnie/Casey/Mikey/Raph/April absolutely have to have that one thing and laws be damned.
  • -Fugitoid was already a fugitive anyways so he’s just going along with things at this point.
  • -he has six kids now and apparently they all want to be pirates and he won’t disappoint them by saying no.
  • -Donnie is scary good at manipulating shit on the digital Black Market, and has actually held fake auctions for the ownership his siblings when he gets pissed at them. he only ever lets his brothers get a little kidnapped after they’re sold off. just until he’s got the money, alright?
  • -if there’s fire or fighting or a combination of the two anywhere in the area they’ve landed for the day it’s probably the direction Casey and Raph have gone.
  • -April gets a bigger gun than the pea-shooter she’s given by Fugitoid almost immediately, and then proceeds to keep collecting various guns as they go. she’s breaking twelve universal possession laws just by having a quarter of her collection.
  • -Leo isn’t always sure how they get into the situations they do but he’s basically just resigned to shenanigans and being chased by space police at this point.
  • -Mikey has caused more intergalactic incidents than one being should be able to feasibly cause, and has the highest bounty on his head.
  • -his wanted poster is him smiling widely at the camera and giving a peace sign because even though they’re light-years from earth he’s still a weeaboo piece of shit.
  • -Mikey might have the highest bounty but April has the biggest rep for being fucking terrifying and she loves it.
  • -Mikey’s bounty is only higher because of the sheer property damage he causes. April just scares everyone she meets into comas. it’s much less messy.
  • -Casey and Raph have a running tally of who can get into and win more bar fights.
  • -April is currently winning that tally.
  • -there are no legal drinking age laws in space and long story short they all got smashed one night and woke up with matching tattoos on their shoulders.
  • -the nonsense symbol was then assumed to be their flag sign and now they can’t escape being associated with it, even though it was originally just a half-assed drunk scribble courtesy of Mikey and Donnie fighting over a pen.
  • -it looks cool enough though so they’re rolling with it.
  • -Space!Donnie and Earth!Donnie eventually figure out how to contact each other and proceed to become each other’s best friend/worst enemy. they either hate each other’s guts or agree on literally everything together and there’s no in between for those moods.
  • -their conversations typically end with them either storming off and yelling “WHY AM I SUCH AN ASSHOLE?!” or them saying “Why can’t you be more like him?” to their family.
  • -Leo has way too much fun monologue-ing villain speeches at the ship crews they rob, and maybe kind of practices said monologues in the bathroom mirror before using them.
  • -Earth!Leo sometimes asks if they can switch places, and Space!Leo always says no.
  • -the Earth!Kids are maybe really jealous and want in on the Space Pirating shenanigans.
  • -it ends up being where they spend their vacation time.
  • -also everyone is gay in some manner because Space Is Gay and they’re in space so they are all gay and there’s no way around that.

I really like the eyes in the first pic. I don’t know how I did that. X

So… I started reading Treading Water last week & I don’t usually like the whole “merpeople AU” but I haven’t been able to get my mind off of this one.

It’s fantastic & super well written & I love it. I can relate to the characters ‘cause, well… “He flexed his arm muscles & then realized he didn’t have any.”

Heh, relatable content.

also I haven’t drawn suits before? Or boots or rain ponchos or dry suits… well, you know what they say, practice makes drawing less painful later so just get it over with now.

oh yeah, uh quality probably sucks ‘cause I don’t actually have a scanner, only my ipod camera. I also have next to no recent experience with editing or what not & I tend to draw hecka small, hence bad quality when not on mobile.

you guys, i’ve lived a good life. today is the day it ended, but like, you know, whatever. it’s as good a time to go as any.
