Thinking that he’d be in the gallery that’s holding his latest show, tonight I brought a silver paint marker in hopes Araki would sign something for me- this time it was the inside of my Leica M6’s baseplate. This M6 originally belonged to my professor in school whom in 2001 set me on my journey of photography- to have this special camera signed by my favorite photographer makes it an absolute personal treasure. Since the autograph is inside the camera there’s no worry about it coming off- and it’s far out of the way for any stray light to fog the film. Araki checked the model of the camera before he signed it- “M6? I shot with one of those the most of any Leica–” I knew this- he got his in 1991. Admittedly this was the other reason I chose this camera tonight) “but I use an M7 now” he added. So yeah, this was a great day. 荒木経惟 がライカの蓋をサインして頂いて本当に嬉しい。一生のカメラ。#フィルムカメラ

My Incredibly Unpopular Thoughts On: Positivity and Hate
I think it’s a bad sign that, during the time I was writing this, one of my teachers asked the class if humans are inherently good or bad and I was one of the few people who said bad. That’s probably another issue entirely.
One of the big reasons I wanted to post this now is because of fan reactions to yonkouproductions deciding not to release spoilers for Fairy Tail. I don’t read spoilers, but I completely understand his decision to stop interacting because of the terrible people in this fandom. At the same time, many people, prominent and otherwise, seem to have a view of what makes this fandom terrible that I don’t have. Considering this post deals with that, I knew I had to get this out soon.
Also, don’t read if you like Sword Art Online. That seems unrelated, but, trust me, it isn’t. In fact, if you liked Sword Art Online, go watch Log Horizon. It’s an overall better take on “humans trapped in a game” with a better opening than any of the SAO openings. Now that that’s out of the way…
I think I got it. I’ve figured out what my biggest problem with the Fairy Tail fandom is. A lot of my posts are beating around the bush as to what I think it is, but I think I have it.
It’s not the ship wars. It’s not the art reposting. It’s not really anything most other people would say is the big problem. Once I say what I think it is, I wouldn’t be shocked that people call me crazy over it.
But hey, I’ve made it this far saying things other people are called delusional for thinking. And somehow, I’ve gotten away with it for the most part. I have even been praised for how I do things on this blog. Shameless self promotion aside, here goes nothing.
I believe the biggest problem with the Fairy Tail fandom is that it tries too hard to be positive.
All together now: “What? How can that possibly be a problem?”
My response is going to sound weird at first, but just hear me out. In our pursuit for positivity, the fandom has ironically become more hateful.

no, it’s the same false info that’s been circulating for over 5 years now. western astrology signs cannot change over time bc they are determined by set segments of the sky and based on the seasons, not on the constellations, so there’s no reason to worry.

Why Did You Choose Your URL: holesoulwas the name of my very old hipster tumblr when i was like 15-16 and a baby wannabe. It’s from the nine inch nails song ‘head like a hole’ which goes ‘head like a hole black as your soul’. Originally my tumblr blog was called pinionwishlast which are three songs of the NIN EP ‘Broken’ in play order. I put sims on the end to make it more visible that I’m a sims tumblr. on GOS and modthesims and stuff I’m just “holesoul”
This is created for recent trending #whyIsign. #whyIsign was started by Stacy Abrams. She wanted to spread knowledge about sign language, how it helped so many deaf people and families, like myself, and to encourage more people to learn and use sign language, especially with deaf children.
I am eternally thankful for American Sign Language.
You can find #whyIsign on facebook, twitter, and instagram.
