such a rad show

anonymous asked:

What if there was a mirror that all the nations absolutely loathe because it shows their actual age? Like, yeah, they can look in their bathroom mirror and be like "oh yeah I'm 22 rad" but this one mirror shows their literal age and it freaks them out cuz they look absolutely horrifying. So how would the Nordics react if they looked in the mirror? Like what would they do?

Avoid it: Sweden

Actively tries to destroy it: Norway and Iceland

Keeps looking on in morbid fascination: Denmark and Finland

Mod Amanda

Lupe is my new favorite Adventure Zone character, okay?

jurassic park-themed enamel pins by sweetandlovely

i LOVE me some jurassic park, as many of you probably already know (my jeff goldblum obsession is well documented on EFOTD … swoon) so i’m all about this pair of JP-inspired pins. from alan’s raptor claw quote to ellie’s amazing feminist retort, you’ll love ‘em too!

  • me on the outside: I'm fine.
  • me on the inside: Legally blonde the musical was a romantic master piece. Elle Woods and Emmett Forrest were mean't to be together. The character development and chemistry on stage between them is so pure and untouched and beautiful. I am completely and totally devoted to their relationship and one day hope to find a love like that. Elle and Emmett became best friends who fell in love and that is the purest fucking thing. I refuse to let anyone tell me any different. It is the only thing that mattered then, matters now, and will matter forever into the future. Elle and Emmett's relationship will never die.

In January of 2016, Alterna Comics tweeted about wanting to see an Aquatbats comic. After an enormous amount of “likes” and “retweets,” Peter Simeti (founder/owner of Alterna) found himself in a discussion with the band. Months passed and nothing really came to fruition. Being a huge fan of the band–and their tv show–I wanted to move things along.

So I made a proof-of-concept pitch with @axureneas. You know, the natural thing to do.

Our pitch was a direct continuation of “The Aquabats! Super Show!” Being true to the tv iteration of the band, different art styles would pop up in every issue. This would’ve been done through the help of various creators from around the world. So, in a way, it would’ve been a fun lil mixtape anthology.

While nothing really came of this short, I’m still immensely happy about how things turned out. With KISS and Gwar comics on the horizon, maybe enough likes, RTs, and reblogs will show the band that fans really want a comic!

Types of Overwatch Players
  • The Semi Casual: You're an average gamer whose here to have fun but still wouldn't mind wining. Maybe you just want a new loot box, maybe you've been invited to a friend's rad new custom game-whatever the reason, you have time off from work or school and need to unwind. If you need to play healer, you'll play healer. Your team could use a second tank? You can play Widowmaker the next game right? You're comfortable with almost all game modes but will dive into Competitive if you're feeling confident. Your POTG is a welcome surprise and something you likely worked to earn through teamwork.(Possible Mains: Lucio, Orisa, Zarya)
  • The Glory Hound: You have one objective and it's definitely not the one you're supposed to be defending. You want your Play Of the Game and anyone who steals your kills is getting cussed out in the group chat. You could care less about team composition, you have your main and anyone who tells you to switch is just jealous of your awesome skills. Similar to The Single Player, teamwork is not your priority as everyone is just a pawn to your inevitable success. Your team winning is cool and all, but what you really want is for YOU to be the winner. You are a monster in Competitive but in the worst possible ways. (Possible Mains: Bastion, Hanzo)
  • The Sore Loser: You define unreliable. You may as well change your last name to Left The Game, because that's what you're always fucking doing. If a team isn't upholding to your standards, you'll ditch before you even see the inside of your spawn room. If any of your teammates are any less than three stars, they don't deserve the right to brush screen names with you. And if you choose to stay with a team the whole way, you BETTER be winning or else you're out. Despite your incredibly selective choice of teammates, your friend list is completely empty and you scoff at anyone who dares send you one.(Possible Mains: Symmetra, Hanzo)
  • The Party Goer: You're here to have fun. "It's just a game" has been hardwired into your code as you don't do jack shit for your team, you're more concerned about showing off your new emote in the heat of battle. You're a talkative fella with a whole wheel of the most grating voice lines your character currently has. Who cares if you win? At least you'll be in a hilarious pose in all of the kills cams. Your teammates may admire your casual nature, though you're so casual that you've become an inconvenience. Yeah, you'll get eliminations every once in awhile but it's only because no one laugh emoted back at you yet and you have ten seconds left to move this truck (Possible Mains: Junkrat, D.Va, Winston)
  • The Grudge Holder: You are out for blood, my friend, and it's rooted in a deep, personal hatred from a certain someone on the enemy team. Your worst enemy is the kill cam because it has the audacity to catch an image of you dying and forever cementing your target throughout the rest of the game. Fuck your team, you want to get even with that one Pharah who blew you up from across the map. And that McCree who had the nerve to shoot a Deadye in your direction? He's screwed once you get out of spawn. Your teammates have been spanning Group Up for five minutes straight but you're still waiting for that bullshit Symmetra to show back up so you can kill her again and teabag the corpse. (Possible Mains: Widowmaker, Roadhog, Mei)
  • The Single Player: You are a lone wolf through and through, here to carry your team with a twenty player kill streak with a single use of your Ultimate. You're the guy who rushes into enemy lines without a plan, relying on your own bravado to keep you alive before you're spamming for heals half way across the map. You're likely oblivious to what you're supposed to be defending...Or are you attacking this time? Nah, doesn't matter! You got your main before anyone else did so you get to show off your rad skills. God help anyone playing healer. (Possible Mains: Genji, Soldier 76, Reaper)

Next to Normal or Newsies

“Next to Normal” is…

1. Probably the most important piece of musical theatre of the twenty-first century. I am not being hyperbolic. This musical changed the way we looked at and thought about musicals – it was edgy without being sensationalist, funny without being crass, and deeply serious without being preachy or nihilistic. It changed the way musicals sounded with it’s blend of rock AND traditional MT styles while mixing in pop and gospel sounds.  Most importantly, it deals openly and honestly and – dare I say – hopefully with mental illness and grief in a manner that not even straight plays had or have since matched.

2. Amazing and uplifting and deeply relatable because of its treatment of bipolar disorder, depression, addiction, post-partum, and…just mental health in general. Including the impact of these diseases on others WITHOUT making the mentally ill into villains hurting their families with refusal to be well. And then also including the complex, evolving issues of treatment, therapy, and medication. It does all this and still manages to be basically hopeful. To say “keep moving towards the light and it’ll get better or at least you will start to feel better about it with sun on your face”. Instead of going all grim-dark and gritty and ~~realistic~~ by ending on a negative note (which it could easily have done sans “Light” closing number).

3. One of the most legit depictions of a family I have seen on stage. Like, for real. With each person trying to hold the family together in a different way, with the parents torn between being “parents” and being real human people, with the kids torn between wanting to be a part of their messed-up family while also wanting nothing more than to get away from it. Everyone alternating between “Let’s fix it!” and “Maybe if I ignore it, it won’t get worse and please, god, maybe no one will notice what’s wrong with us.” 

4. Great music. Lovely to listen to, a joy to sing along to in the car. The mix of quiet little ballads and soaring show-stoppers and funny little patter bits is perfect for any listening/singing/one-woman-car-performing situation. 

5. Apparently hard to screw up? Like I’ve seen four productions of various size and budget and casting pools and they were all pretty rad? Is it even possible for this show to suck? Probably not?
