Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.

okay so like I know everyone is talking about his eyes and i agree!! but please: what about his perfect stubble accentuating that gorgeous jawline i mean look at it please!!

Okay, all right! Let’s look at the evidence shall we? First of all: YES we need to mention those eyes because they are just insanely BLUE and I can’t not talk about them!!! But, fine let’s move on. First of all, we need to get closer..

Right. I hear you. That’s a very very nice stubble indeed. It’s got a slight red tinge to it too which goes really nicely with his golden skin tone 

and YES, it definitely accentuates his jawline! It looks so sharp and wonderfully defined and I can say with 100% certainty, anon, that you are ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON!! That is one fine jawline definition right there ^^

thanks to the ask i got yesterday im now thinking about guan shan and he tian moving in together, so have some headcanons (i didn’t want to be that person, but warning for some sexual mentions!!) [also i feel like my english is really bad in this so i apologise for it]

  • it starts with guan shan slowly just leaving spare clothes at he tian’s apartment so he always has something to change into when he stays the night
  • at some point guan shan drags he tian to buy some damn furniture because he refuses to leave his stuff scattered on the floor or in old boxes like he tian does
  • pretty soon the apartment is full of guan shan’s clothes and video games and it starts to feel a lot less empty and lonely
  • it’s only when guan shan starts to work in the kitchen of a restaurant and is not around as much as before that he tian realises that the apartment felt less empty and silent not because of the new furniture or guan shan’s stuff, but because of guan shan himself
  • one evening guan shan manages to drop by but he is so tired that he can barely keep his eyes open, so he tian is finally like “you should move in”
  • needless to say that that wakes guan shan up pretty quickly, and he tian then proceeds to list all the reasons why that would be the best solution
  • guan shan asks he tian a couple of days to think about it and explains to him that it’s not because he doesn’t want to move in with him, but because he is worried about his mom being alone
  • the next day he talks about it with his mom and she almost laughs at him because really, he had been in a foul mood since he didn’t get to see he tian as often, and there she was, trying to understand why they hadn’t decide to move in together already and worrying that maybe something bad had happened between them
  • she then tells him that he should think about himself once in a while and do what makes him happy, she is going to be okay, and anyway he tian’s apartment is not even that far
  • when guan shan goes to move his stuff out of his room, it only takes like one small suitcase because everything is already at he tian’s place
  • the night he finally moves in, he tian slowly fucks guan shan into their mattress, and after they’ve both come down they just hold each other and realise that this is what they’re going to come home to from now on
  • about a week after guan shan has moved in, he tian tells him that they’re going to have a guest for dinner but refuses to say more, and when guan shan goes to open the door that evening he finds himself in front of his mom
  • as they walk back after walking guan shan’s mom home, he tian explains to him that he could see he was still worried about her feeling alone, so he had invited her
  • he also tells guan shan that she could come at least once a week for dinner, it’s not a problem, he likes his mom, and it’s not like he is the one who has to cook anyway
  • guan shan backs him up against a wall and kisses him so hard that he tian sees stars
  • the first time guan shan refers to the apartment as his home he’s on the phone talking to jian yi (because they’ll all become friends, i know this), and he tian stops whatever he is doing, takes the phone from guan shan, says “im about to blow him, so im afraid he’s gonna have to call you back”, and proceeds to give guan shan the best blowjob of his life
  • (jian yi texts he tian after a while telling him that he really didn’t need to know that. he tian replies he should consider himself lucky he got a warning at all)

The time has come for me to post my very first something that should resemble a masterpost ever. After more than half a year. Go me. Anyways, I am one of those people who like to study with sound, but not always with music. So here’s a little list of my favorite ambient study sounds on YouTube that I listen to while studying. Enjoy!

before I start I want to say that this my observation and assumption so I could be wrong since we know a little about the Dazai and Chuuya relationship and backstory ( and don’t mind my english )

why did Dazai become a friend of Oda and Ango and not Chuuya although he clearly spend more time with Chuuya than those two since he’s his partner ? and why did Dazai hate Chuuya in first place and interacting with him ? why wasn’t chuuya need in the dark era ?

so let me start by answering why Dazai become friend with Ango and Oda and not Chuuya ?

my answer is simple … because they don’t know the real Dazai … if you read the novel you’d noticed it more than the anime … in a lot of cases Oda was shocked that Dazai talked about himself because it was the first time he mentioned anything or talk about something that concern him.

I believe Dazai is the type who doesn’t talk about himself or allow anyone to get near him on a personal level. Hirotsu in the novel said that no one ever know what Dazai like or hate or what would make him get angry etc etc not even he who’s a veteran of the Mafia for more than 10 years now …

and whenever Dazai show part of his true self he always laugh it off or pretend it was all an act ..

and because of this very scene Oda know the part that Dazai never wanted to show and what he was searching for which result in him saying those words to him before he die…

Dazai always joke around and lie which makes it hard to tell which is the truth and which part is the lie

Dazai can deceive people so easily .. to add Ango and Oda never truly ask Dazai or bother to ask him something personal .. Dazai with them feel at ease more than anyone else .. plus they only gather to drink which means outside of this they don’t meet that much if not for work .. and after Dazai become an executive no normal member of the Mafia can meet him or talk to him easily .. Oda and Ango without warring hold a special part of him heart that he didn’t realize till it was too late..

and this lead me to why Dazai hate Chuuya and interacting with him and they didn’t became friends… based on this pic we know that Dazai and Chuuya know or at least were aware of each other at a young age ..

so maybe Chuuya know about Dazai’s personal life than any other member on the Mafia … plus Chuuya is smart and was Dazai’s partner so he can easily get past Dazai’s acting …

like Chuuya was the only one who know that Dazai purposely let himself get caught because he’s plotting something …

and Dazai was at first..

but then he admitted he was plotting something indeed ..

so Dazai know that he can’t keep his acting that long infront of Chuuya…

so this makes me think .. what if Dazai hate Chuuya because first Chuuya can get past his acting in most cases or whenever he lie…second because maybe Chuuya knows part of Dazai that we still didn’t see or know yet…

and as someone who always maintain a distance from everyone I don’t think this came as a surprise to me …since I know some people hate the one who know them the best or more than anyone specially if this person try not to show his true self .. I thought Dazai is like this which’s makes sense to me ..

and we still don’t know the full picture of Dazai’s character .. as Oda gave us a glimpse on certain aspect of his personality and character I believe Chuuya would do the same if they gave us their backstory or more info ( PLEASE I’M STILL WAITING FOR IT )

and I believe this is the very reason why Chuuya wasn’t included in the Dark Era .. and the Dark era only takes place on Dazai’s last days in the Mafia and not his whole life in it .. if you’re gonna say that the dark era didn’t show what kind of relationship Dazai and Chuuya have then also allow me to say .. that the dark era didn’t show us what kind of relationship Dazai have with Mori the Boss of the Mafia … they gave us hints the same as the manga but didn’t answer my questions so …

yeah don’t hold the dark era as if it hold all you answer about Mafia Dazai because clearly there’s MORE than what was shown .. be it Chuuya, Q ( and this one didn’t even get mentioned the same as Chuuya ) or Mori …

this is all I wanna say for now … sorry if I confused or my talk didn’t make any sense … I just don’t agree that after seeing Dazai and Oda’s relationship people start to believe that Chuuya doesn’t play an important role in Dazai’s life ..It just felt so wrong to me …

Asuka’s motif appears in the background soundtrack over and over again. In the previous season, the OST composer did this using a clip from Crescent Moon Dance. Now the entire background soundtrack is focused on one particular euphonium etude that Asuka plays. In fact, Asuka’s etude is the FIRST thing we hear in the first episode of season 2. It is super significant. 

I could say why on this post but I don’t want to spoil it for people who are coming from Reddit.

anonymous asked:

What do you think of Anders? I'm asking because the one Cullen post you reblogged very recently, the OP is an Anders stan blog and thinks he did nothing wrong and that blowing up the chantry and killing a lot of people in kirkwall was the right thing. So what are your personal opinions?

My personal opinion is that the Chantry and Templars can go fuck themselves and I fully stand by Anders. lmao

Also the Templars and the Chantry were already killing a lot of innocent mages in Kirkwall, and all over Thedas. (and innocent non-mages just because they felt threatened that their power wouldnt hold, like killing the dalish ya know…)

The Chantry did nothing but sit on their hands and beg for money from prostitutes in the slums. Grand Cleric “the problems will go away if I don’t acknowlegde it, thus the oppressors will continue to oppress” Elthina can go suck an egg.

Anders just took a step to open up a path for this genocide to end. And tbh as far as I know he didn’t actually start this “war”. (im pretty sure the books have the answers to the question of who started it)

Christ, I could go on forever but I would just make myself mad. lol
