shit what was my tag for them

anonymous asked:

I wanted to ask, completely unrelated to DnP; what is your opinion of what is happening in Venezuela? As a fellow latinamerican I fear the involvement of the USA (military speaking) due the usual development that kind of involvements have ended in the past but... I am also so desperate for them. Someone needs to do something and I get more and more upset with every news or every tweet and every person I talk to here that has come from venezuela trying to escape all of that shit

oh i kinda gave my opinions on it in the tags of a post in my main the other day. this is quite the controversial topic, isn’t it? can u believe hard left here in chile actually support mad*ro’s government? like, i consider myself left and i follow all these websites, magazines and stuff, that are left winged yet their posts about ven*zuela are on the verge of fascism.

basically my opinion of it, is that socialism can’t be implemented (fully) in a country whose major income is exports, specially in ven*zuela who literally sells petrol to the U.S. circumscribed in the capitalist system and the global market, hard socialism and pure ideology can’t make a country survive against the capitalist machine that is the U.S, and that’s a reality.

latinoamerican countries, sadly, have always fell into what Wallerstein calls peripheric-countries, which means that our income and balance economically depends from core countries, like the u.s and it’s basically been this way since colony, as they stole and continue to steal our resources in order to sell us the manufactured pieces back. re: we sell copper, they give us chips and computers for triple the price.

therefore, and it’s what LITERALLY happened in chile in Allende’s government, when the socialist government relies on ideology more that strategy, economically speaking, the country isn’t profitable for core countries, and that’s where the economic blockage comes from. Ven*zuela’s goverment calls this “americans are forcing us to accomodate to the capitalist system by blocking us economically so that the socialist agenda falls, we won’t surrender yada yada yada” ; which is ideology to me, more than practicality.

That’s legit what happened with Allende, he nationalized copper, expropriated thousands of acres and gave it to working class people, all in like two years, and then the U.S retracted their business in fruit importation, in forest / wood resources, in copper, and we as a dependable country fell into a hole, and no food, long queues to get bread, no hospitals supplies, etc. 

And then came Nixon and Kissinger with their money and tanks, and killed thousands of people who supported the socialist government, in another act of pure ideology.

I think, and this is my opinion, there are ways to democratize and implement socialist reforms within countries that are peripheric, the president before allende, eduardo frei montalva did just that, he started nationalizing copper gradually and slowly, in a way that wouldn’t freak out international business, and also slowly began the expropriation of land in the south, which i think was the way to go. 

My point is that, governments that run on pure ideology are doomed from the start, and now with Mad*ro it’s just pure populism and thirst for power, oligarchy in its finest form slowly converting to fascism. 

I wish there was a way to stop it not involving violence, the best way i think would be a revolution from the people that are suffering, and not from the hard right that are probably already begging for the U.S to get involved, and you never want the U.S to get involved.

It’s such a tough situation on countries that depend so hard on core-countries. And opinions are hard when you’re supposed to be behind the ideology that they say they represent but not agree on the means. But, you’ve got to be fair, Venez*ela’s case is worrying, and it’s kind of terrible that no international media are covering it at all which would only contribute to hide another U.S deadly intervention. 

(sighs) i hope something happens soon ):

Hey im just wondering

Yo know how Nanu in Pokemon Sun/Moon lives with like 12 meowths? And also there’s a lady on one of the routes in… Akala, I think, who lives with like 8 stufful?

Reblog this and put in the tags which single pokemon you’d adopt like 10 of and contentedly live with. Bonus points if you say why and what you’d do with them. I’m curious…

so last night i was rereading house proud by astolat, aka the best harry potter fic there ever ever was, & then i started having Thoughts about hp wizards being the descendants of the fae cuz it just makes!! so much sense!!!

i am perpetually disappointed by so much of jkr’s world-building but this in particular bothers me so much cause like

she placed so much emphasis on blood lines & ~purity but the only ever used it as a shite allegory for racism

u know who gives a thousand shits about blood lines? the fae. u know who goes to great lengths to exist separately from humans? the fae. u know whose society is split into groups based on personality? the fae!!

the evolution of wizarding society makes so much more sense!! if u interpret them as being fae adapting to the changing world!!!

Am I the only one that doesn’t care at all that Mon El said that he loved Kara before Sanvers have said it? Like the relationship between Kara and Mon El is messy and lacks development, so I’m not surprised that he said that he loved her so quickly. In all honesty he may not even truly love her, she’s just the first person he’s truly been attached to and not a hook up, which he was doing on Daxam. 

BUT Sanvers has been developed and I’m just waiting for that special moment that they actually say it. Not some type of “I’m saying this cause I don’t want to lose you bullshit,” but they say it cause it’s true. Cause they truly can’t live without one another and love each other, ride or die. When they do say it, it will be impactful and not easily forgotten like Mon El’s confession.

Yeah.

So why are you still carrying me?

Oh my god “try harder” is what all my teachers and counselor told me for the four year duration of middle school whenever I said I didn’t understand the material in class or when I said I couldn’t focus and it was h e l l. Honestly I think teachers say that cause they think students are lying, so that they can go “Oh I did my job I didn’t ignore them” when in reality they’re still doing that. I get close to flipping my shit every time I hear someone say it now.

Try harder has been my mantra through all of my childhood right the way through to my adult years. Try harder. 

Like honestly the whole time I was at university I was having a perpetual meltdown, there was no way I could have possibly tried harder. I graduated with a 2:1 with honors (I have no idea how to translate that for the Americans, sorry, it’s pretty good though, like not 4.0 good but Up There) and the first thing my professor said to me, with a big ole smile on his face was “now imagine what you could have done if you’d just tried harder” and all I could hear after that was the Kill Bill siren in my head. Like I’d just coasted my way there, and hand’t spent four years torturing myself, crying daily and completely destroying my personal life to try and keep it together long enough to reach graduation day.

And that’s a summary of my entire school life right there, with report cards that say “Joy is extremely clever but just doesn’t try hard enough”, “could be wonderful, if she only tried harder.” And it took until last year when I was joking with @jeneelestrange that it’s odd that I know all the things that I know because I’m not all that clever, and haha isn’t it funny that I’m able to remember these things despite this this and this, and there was this moment of pause which you could hear even over the internet before Jenee very gently nudged me with “hey…uh…that uh…that’s a learning disorder, you have a learning disorder” and I went haha no I just don’t try hard enough, I’m just not all that clever…right? I’m just stupid, right? Why else do I struggle so much with academic things…

Wait, what do you mean ADHD gets overlooked in girls because it presents differently than in boys? What?! What do they mean it’s hard?!?! WELL WHY DON’T THEY TRY HARDER?!!

i doodled a bit so a concept: serizawa katsuya has two loving parents 

his mother went through some hard times with him during his time being all hikikomori’d up and miscalculated when she had been at her wits end, and his father couldn’t be there much due to his job and didn’t know how to connect with katsuya’s problems the rare times he was…. but after the biggest weights were lifted from their shoulders, they quickly snapped back into a close, happy family. 

here they’re all super stoked about having bought katsuya a proper suit for the first time ever, and of their son getting a job that’s not a fucking cult bent on world domination. not pictured is their dog currently chewing katsuya’s shoes. 

their names are aiko and ishi and y ea i did this mainly to think through stuff for the next chapter of shit-all. spoiler: they’re so good people they adopt reigen immediately. 

anonymous asked:

Misha has nice thighs. Shuuuuush

are u kIDDING ME, THAT BOY HAS THE NICEST, THICKEST THIGHS THIS WORLD HAS EVER SEEN

i mean holy shit, look at these babies

so fucking Thicc™

is it???? getting hARd tO bReAtHe In HeRe or W aht?!?!

aND WOULD YA LOOK AT THEM IN MOTION?!?!? dAmN

i feel cOMPRIMISED, they are so muscular holy fuck i could cry (full disclosure, these are my fave pair of jeans he owns)

i feel so Attacked, wow

he can crush my larynx with those thighs, what a way to go

tldr; THICK THIGHS SAVE LIVES (unless u want them to murder u, which is my personal preference tbh)

AND ADDED BONUS!!!! ft the Thicc Dicc™ bc holy shit bro 👀

I inherited
My mother’s words
My father’s nature
And both
Their loneliness
—  the jet lag chronicles

so…. i’ve kinda “snapped” and started posting cute pics of my fur babies in the Ace Discord™ tag to, 

a) further piss-off the aphobes that are somehow genuinely bugged by this form of kindness and care towards aspecs, and 

b) bc i genuinely LOVE and appreciate all the cute animal pics and positivity ppl inject into the tag bc it’s incredibly hard to read through that shit if you’re aspec so these brief moments of “good”, “cute”, and “love” are an excellent and healthy reprieve for us. 

so of course i want to add to the positivity, especially after finding out how much it seems to “offend” ppl who claim not to hate us but then throw fits about kindness towards us being posted in their nasty-ass tag

all they need to do is BLOCK and the “””””clutter”””” (as I’ve seen it called) goes away for them, and they can be once again swimming in a sea of pure aphobia; something they clearly prefer to cute cat pics and aspec positivity. 

this is perhaps one of the few moments I feel justified in being a “shit disturber” bc the bar is set at cute cat pics and….. that literally harms no one? 

they just need to get over it and shut up

so yeah, as someone who almost NEVER stirs shit up bc it’s typically a petty and pointless thing to do, i’m gonna stir this shit up a little

anyone else wanna help?

i really and truly BELIEVE that this situation genuinely calls for us to stir the shit up by flooding the tag with cute pet pics and what not. I mean, it’s bullshit that it bothers them at all and it’s good for us to see these lovelies since the tag is full of hatred for us and this is a nice reprieve. 

honestly, who’s with Gracie, Si, and I? 💜

“My Little Pony: Bobdude Remix”

Oh shit it’s a new blanket design for Bronycon. I wanted to get big mac, maud, and shining armor/cadence/flurry on this thing (because I should have them as stickers for bronycon), but the order has to go in now if I’m gonna get them in time. If I stick to this horse convention thing another summer I’ll add a whole bunch more of the other horses I’ve drawn to it, quite like my Sweetie collage. I’m hoping to turn it into something really cool but it’ll be a few hundred hours before that can happen. I uh, may or may not be trying to draw every vaguely important pony from the show. We’ll see. In the meantime though I think this looks pretty neat, got a little bit of something for everyone on it. This one will also be on wallscrolls, which will be a bobdude first for bronycon.

Anyways, enjoy a little collage of horses. Expect those new stickers I mentioned real soon

OH, one last thing, I won’t be taking preorders for blankets at bronycon this year. Due to this post-trotcon rush, I just couldn’t make them happen. However there is some good news, I found a new blanket printer so I’m printing more of them and they’ll sell for even cheaper. I’ll have ten of my Sweetie Collage and ten of this new design here. Hopefully they take off as well at bronycon as they did at everfree, those blanket sales take my mood from good to infallible every time one goes haha

For the anon who asked me to do a coloring tutorial :) If anyone wants me to do any more tutorials, feel free to send me an ask and I’ll try and get to it as soon as possible!

Everything I know about picking colors comes from THIS SYCRA VIDEO. The first eight minutes are really all you need to understand what I’m saying. I don’t do exactly what he does every single time, but I always keep it in the back of my head.

Some other things to note, I guess:

When I’m drawing from reference, I don’t use the eyedropper tool and sample colors directly from the photo. It feels kinda boring and lazy to me, because if I’m gonna have all the same colors as the photo, what’s even the point of drawing from a photo if the photo already exists? So I guess it’s an issue of style for me…

I change the colors of the lines before I do the overpaint bit just because it helps me when I’m blending. It’s easier to blend a skin colored outline into a face than a dark blue outline into a face.

…That’s pretty much all I gotta say about coloring. Hope this helps someone…

The signs as a disappointed fandom:
  • Apathetic as fuck; slowly but surely weaning themselves off the show due to the fuckery season after season: aries, taurus, gemini
  • The squad that fuck shit up on social media, wondering what the fuck is going on and borderline about to quit the show: cancer, leo, virgo
  • Legit glutton for punishment, for whatever reason is still holding onto hope that the show is gonna get better despite the fact that TPTB have let them down time and time again: libra, scorpio, sagittarius
  • The 'fuck this I'm out' squad, ain't loyal to shit but they the real winners cuz they sleeping easy at night after dropping the show: capricorn, aquarius, pisces

*dies*

I think my Ryder has a type.

Backup Copies

A/N: So after watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 last night I woke up this morning with my muse telling me I needed to write some Yondad Yondu and teenage Peter Quill fluff because I’m in desperate need for it. Yondu may be rough around the edges but he cares so much for Peter and does his best to make him happy.

Word Count: 920

Warnings: None.

A grimace pulled on Yondu’s mouth as he stomped down the hall towards Peter’s room. Ever since the boy hit puberty it seemed like a switch turned on in his brain that made him go out of his way to disobey Yondu at every turn. When he asked Peter to turn his music down he just turned it up louder. When he asked Peter to clean up around the ship he’d make an even bigger mess. And when he asked Peter to get his ass into gear bright and early so they could get to work, Yondu was stuck going to Peter’s bunk and yanking him out of bed and dragging him along. He was sick of it.

He didn’t bother knocking on Peter’s door and instead whipped it open until it slammed against the wall. He could almost feel a blood vessel in his head burst as he looked at Peter, curled up in bed with the blankets over his head. Without a word Yondu swiftly flipped the sheets back to look at Peter, who was facing away from him.

“Boy have ya lost yer damn mind!?” Yondu yelled, gesturing wildly. “I’m tired of yer petty little mind games here! If ya don’t git yer ass up I’m gonna eat ya like I shoulda done years ago!”
