A Heartfelt Thanks

           Dear DreamWorks, Studio Mir, Josh Keaton, Jeremy Shada, Steven Yeun, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Tyler Labine, Kimberly Brooks, Rhys Darby, Neil Kaplan, Cree Summer, Keith Ferguson, Jake Eberle, Mick Wingert, and Arnold Vosloo,

           You have all created an incredible show for everyone in the fandom to enjoy. We really appreciate it, and even through all the fandom discourse- you still manage to provide us incredible Voltron content. 

           You continue to give us updates on the characters, and even though we may not voice it very often, we do acknowledge and value your sacrifices. 

           Thank you to all of the voice actors who perform incredibly, and continue to interact with the fandom, even though we do not always give you the best reactions. Most of us do recognize your sacrifices, and we thank you immensely for everything you do for the show and for its viewers. 

           Thank you, animators, for animating all of our favorite characters in an outstanding fashion- the colors, the fight scenes, even the emotional scenes- You drew them all incredibly. I know as well as the next person that some of you may have ended up losing your jobs over the recent leaks, but do not forget that your efforts to the show are not unnoticed. We appreciate every last one of you.

           To the writers- you have written some of the most wholesome scenes and episodes I have ever received the pleasure of witnessing. As a writer, your content hits very deep, and I can not voice my appreciation loudly enough.

           I thank you, on the fandom’s behalf.

There’s really no easy way to lose fat in a few weeks. You could lose body weight in a few weeks, you could lose water or maybe burn through some muscle. But if you wanna lose fat it will take you about four or five months. And that’s just cutting out the crap. No alcohol, no sugar, no salt. (x)

“BE MORE CHILL” COULD POSSIBLY RETURN?

OMG OKAY SO first off, sorry for the clickbait title lmao but this is really exciting

I emailed Mr. Iconis, the creator of “Be More Chill”, pretty much because I love his musical and I’m dying to know if it will ever return. (Turns out it was performed in a theater near me but I didn’t know at the time…)

Anyway, I sent him an email asking if the musical would ever be revived. Here’s his reply!!:

Of course, it’s not a guarantee that the show will come back, but I was absolutely ELATED when I read that our interest might prove helpful.

So I guess…keep up the hype?? With luck, maybe we’ll be able to see Be More Chill back on the stage one day!

Edit: Here’s a link to the image if it’s too small for you to see: http://imgur.com/a/PG8JH

below the cut you will find 20+ icons depicting images of locations and buildings. made with roleplaying purposes in mind. a like or a reblog would be nice but isn’t necessary.

So the final Agni Kai...

Obviously this has been said time and time again, but, like… the music. This is my absolute favorite bit from the soundtrack. What I like best about it is that they were smart enough to let the score evolve. It didn’t stick to a single tempo or melody. It’s incredibly clever because it allows the music to express all the emotion and themes that are involved in this scene. They could have used an overt, grandiose, high-energy score but what they chose to do ended up being so much more expressive. A constant high-energy score would have drawn more attention to the physical action and fight sequence (which is amazing and brilliantly animated, don’t get me wrong), but the music they chose drew more attention to the actual emotion and tragedy of it all. A brother and sister fighting to the death, one fighting to do the right thing and the other rapidly losing her sanity. And that’s just the first part of the track! The song evolves. The music starts as a sweeping, slow, epic, tragic melody that builds and falls and builds and falls, stops, then returns with a high-paced and frenetic tempo as Azula prepares the lightning. It increases the intensity of the moment within seconds, indicates the presence of danger and unpredictability while signaling the arrival of the climax of the scene. Then, in the second Azula releases the lightning at Katara, the music returns with the same somber, sorrowful melody and once again, pulls the attention away from the action, away from the presence of a dangerous, imminent threat, and redirects it back to the actual emotion of the scene, to the realization and fear that Zuko is about to lose someone about whom he truly cares, the shift from the defense of oneself to the protection of another, to the display of loyalty and love shown through heart-breaking self-sacrifice. Conclusion: everything about the music in the scene was stunningly well-done. The melody rises and falls, the tempo shifts multiple times, and overall, the music exists and evolves to place focus on each and every moment of significance and emotion and pain during this scene. I want filmmakers and musicians and artists and writers to just take as many lessons as they possibly can from this, because it truly falls under the category of “most powerful scores of all time”. This music was perfectly constructed to express the significance of this scene, has left an unbelievably deep impact on me, and continues to have the same heartwrenching effect every… single… time I listen to it and every… single… time I watch the scene.

anonymous asked:

What does it means "Bless his heart, he said yes"?

Hi anon! Thanks for the ask.

Darren has told the story of how we went to a dinner and a concert with Chris after his first day on the set. He has told it more than once. There’s a great post from Michelle about that (x), but to recap…

Darren shared this story publicly for the first time for a BTS interview in spring 2011, but he didn’t say much, he didn’t even mention the concert. I believe Darren had this date in mind also when he was describing what the perfect date is in his view for the interview in People Magazine in fall 2011 (x). In that interview, he was talking more in general terms.

The story didn’t really start unraveling until later. In summer 2014, it was actually Max Adler who revealed that Darren and Chris went out to a dinner and a concert after Darren’s first day. The first time Darren really told the story publicly was for the BTS interview for Klaine wedding episode in fall 2014. Chris was sitting next to him. In that interview, Darren said: “And I was like ‘do you wanna come?’ And bless your heart.” By ‘bless your heart’, he was referring to Chris agreeing to go out with him.

Darren repeated the story again for the Paley Fest interview in spring 2015. In that, Darren said: “Here I am, just meeting Chris Colfer for the first time and I’m like ‘This is a long shot, man, but I’m going to this concert. Do you want to come?’ Bless his heart he came with me.”

And he told it again for the interview with Alan Cummings in fall 2015. In that, Darren said: “I asked him. I was like ‘I know we don’t know each other, but our characters might have to get to know each other a little better. So if you want to come with me, if you like Sutton Foster, it’d be my treat.’ And bless his heart, he said yes!”


So… Darren has, more than once, used the line “bless his heart” about Chris agreeing to the dinner and concert on that first night. Why? I can’t read his mind. The words tell us that he is at the very least grateful that Chris agreed to it. I think it goes beyond this though. I think he feels grateful to have Chris in his life, a sentiment that is undoubtedly shared by Chris too. They feel grateful to have each other. I don’t think that has changed through the years and the struggles. If anything, the feeling has grown stronger.

(aside from the fact that logan looks less like logan and more like me cosplaying him…)

(and forgiving my art style for being so consistently inconsistent that just zooming in on a character makes him look totally different…)

(and acknowledging the fact that the difference in hair color is based on my headcanons for what they’d look like as individual people…)

I illustrated one of my favorite moments in one of my favorite @thatsthat24 Sanders Sides videos (well i mean they’re all my favorite, but.)

I might make it into a video, using the audio from the original. It’s almost not the same without the background music, heh.

I’m constantly amazed at how nice writers in this fandom are. Like seriously, every time I find the tumblr of one of my favorite writers they are either incredibly sweet & kind or turn out to be people that have reached a level of fame where they simply can’t answer all asks anymore (but still reblog stuff that I very much agree with). And no matter what level of fame they have reached they are never unnecessarily rude, despite sometimes having to be firm in their replies. I don’t have problems with unfollowing people if they post something that makes me uncomfortable but I’ve never had to do that with any of them.

Just. A huge shout out to all of my favorite writers. I’ve barely talked to any of you and I doubt you know I exist but you guys are seriously the best ;A;

(Also a huge shout out to writers in general. Thank you for being awesome and pouring so much time and effort into something that I can easily consume & enjoy when I’m dying for new ship content. You guys are a m a z i n g too T^T)
