RobStar fluff: "Trust me Im a Doctor. Well Not really but still"
Ahh. I like this one a lot.
“Careful, Starfire. I’m not done cleaning it, yet.” Robin informed her from across the room.
She pouted, tears stinging her eyes as she sat patiently on the edge of one of the infirmary beds. Starfire looked down at her most recent wound and winced.
It wasn’t all that often that she ended up in the infirmary for such little injuries but this one had caused quite a bit of pain.
The raw red, bloodied gashes made her turn her nose up slightly. It was a harsh wound caused from today’s mission but the positive part of her brain reminded her that she had, in turn, managed to rescue a small child from a collapsing building.
That was what made it entirely worth it, of course. She would do it again in a heart beat.
But now, it had become sore. Dust and smoke had crept up on her slashed wrist and filled it with bacteria. It always hurt more to clean it later rather sooner.
Robin eyed her carefully as she swung her legs back and forth like a kid. He inhaled a deep breath as he carried over the tray of medical equipment and supplies.
“Ohh… can we not simply ask Raven to heal the lacerations?” Starfire asked, feeling very uncertain about the bottle liquid Robin kept brushing his fingers over.
He tilted his head at her and gave her a small, amused smile, “No, Star. We’re doing it the old fashion way because Raven’s too weak after healing Beast Boy’s ankle. Sides, if we leave it much longer, it could get infected. And we don’t want that do we, Princess?”
Starfire huffed, “No.”
Her masked boyfriend smirked as he grabbed numerous cotton pads and the dreaded bottle of clear liquid which she was fairly certain as not water.
Wary, emerald eyes focused on the glass bottle.
“What is that?” Starfire queried, leaning back a little,
“Uh… it’s just stuff to help clean your cuts.”
She narrowed her eyes at him, “Richard.”
He chuckled nervously, “What?”
Her eyes shifted from him, to the bottle, back up to him, “It is going to hurt, is it not?”
DNCE leader shows off vintage Godzilla T-shirt, Cuban-cigar collection and other prized items from personal style stash
“I’m a pretty big nerd,” says Joe Jonas, sitting in the L.A. house he’s newly dubbed “the Shaq-teau.” If you’re wondering why, check out the life-size cutout of NBA great Shaquille O'Neal that greets you upon entrance. Jonas – who just released his debut LP with his disco-pop crew, DNCE – has come a long way since his teen days as a sitcom star on the Disney Channel. But he’s kept a boyish sensibility, even as he’s become a little more rugged and sophisticated with age.
“As a band, we’ve always been attracted to fashion and our own versions of that,” he says, “My bass player [Cole Whittle] would, like, find a vest from a guy who’s doing scaffolding work in the Lower East Side. Whatever lets you be yourself.” For Jonas, that means having a house stocked with childhood memorabilia, as well as fine art and a wardrobe that mixes leather and letterman jackets in vibrant, dime-store comic-book colors.
“I was in a really rad vintage store in Harajuku when I found the T-shirt, and I freaked out. Like, ‘No way, a Godzilla shirt in Japan!’ I’m a pretty big nerd; I loved all those old shows. … It has all the villains from the movie on the back. I think it was still on the mannequin – I had to barter with the guy to keep it.
"Harajuku is one of the best shopping areas I’ve seen in the world. We always try and take a day off and go lose our minds there. That time we only got 30 minutes – I really lucked out. It’s the one shirt I’ll always wear until it falls off.”
G.I. Joe Vintage Lunchbox
“I loved G.I. Joe as a kid. I used to collect the action figures; I also loved the show. I thought I was gonna make all this money and eventually sell all my G.I. Joes. Then I found out my little brother Frankie ripped out all my action figures to play with. I was pretty bummed out, but he had a good time.
"I found the lunchbox somewhere in London. … You know, to keep a piece of my childhood. You find the most bizarre stuff around the world, all this stuff from America. Like, we were in Japan and I found T-shirts from my hometown, Wyckoff, New Jersey.”
Vintage Tuffy Boxing Gloves
“The gloves were a gift from Cole. They’re these vintage gloves from the Thirties or Forties. They’re very worn-in. To me they represent hard work. I have them hanging up in my bedroom – they’re like the first thing I see in the morning. I don’t use those, though – I have newer boxing gloves that I take with me on tour.
"I got more serious about boxing in the last year. I joined a gym in L.A. called Unbreakable. They do all kinds of training – MMA fighters, boxers, former athletes. They’ll link you up with so many different, unique trainers. When I was on the floor, I fought one of the trainers, Ava Knight – she’s a flyweight boxing champ. She is an incredible trainer; she puts me through the ringer. I’ve learned so much from her.
"For me, [boxing] is therapeutic! You just lose yourself. You can zone out, not think too much. You’re just listening for the clock. Doing the same routine at the gym gets really annoying and boring. You can box anywhere – at home, in a hallway, inside, outside. On tour it’s very useful.”
Giants Bomber Jacket
“I’m a big-time Giants fan. I grew up right by the stadium. The band always tries to go to games when we’re in New York. We’ve gone to three games this season. This jacket is vintage. I got lucky and found it at a pop-up shop in Brooklyn. Brooklyn’s obviously very good for shopping. I rock it as much as I can. My guitarist, JinJoo, went to her first Giants game recently and has been feeling [the jacket]. She’s been wearing it quite a bit.”
Extensive Knife Collection
“It was kind of an accidental gift. One late, drunken night, my friend was trying to figure out what he was going to buy me for my birthday, and on an infomercial there was a collection of 150-something knives for $90. That was my birthday present from him. … It came in the mail months later and I was shocked.”
Louis Vuitton Slip-On Sneakers
“[Designer] Kim Jones gifted me these, from a collection he did with Colette in Paris. I don’t even like to touch these shoes because they’re really special to me and [there are] only a couple in the world. I wore them a couple weeks ago and now they’re on my shelf because they are a prized possession and a special memory.”
“These are probably all Cuban – Cohiba Behikes. Me and my younger brother Nick are big cigar smokers, we probably have multiple humidors at this point. The cigar box itself has the presidential seal on it. I tell people it was a gift from George Washington when they come over, [from] George Washington’s great-great-great-great granddaughter. … But it’s definitely not true.”
Art by Alejandro Diaz-Ayala
“I’ve gone to Miami for Art Basel over the last couple years. I’m not a pro collector, but I guess that’s the beauty of art – I just grab stuff that I’m really attracted to. … There’s this guy Alejandro Diaz-Ayala – he’s from Mexico and is very famous for his graffiti art. I saw his work in Miami a couple years ago. I got to meet him recently. The only way I can describe it is meeting your favorite artist and actor. … He’s such a rad guy. This painting reminds me of Elvis in a way. It reminds me of my friend John.”
Art by Ryan Hewett
“Ryan Hewett is South African, but I saw his work at the Unit London. He just … kills it. He does these really big, portrait-style works. I was looking through his pieces, wanting to buy something. Then I stopped at these two figures sparring – I think one of them is Muhammad Ali.”
Rick Ross Ashtray, Assorted Art Books
“There’s an awesome artist named DeerDana – she made this cool ashtray and sent it to me. The coffee-table book was a gift from Peter Tunney; it’s actually an art piece. He worked with hundreds of other artists pulling together different curated skull pieces and they made a book – he designed the outside cover.”
“There’s this artist named Curtis Montgomery – he’s based in Toronto and Montreal. I’ve been a big fan of his work; some of it is pretty perverse, pretty crazy. Or naughty, I should say. I really love the way he does line work. For those who don’t have tattoos, clean line work is hard to find. I was in Toronto; it was during the storm Jonas. I was doing a radio takeover in Canada, so we called it the Storm Jonas Takeover. I had a few hours to kill, so I called Curtis. He magically had the next few hours off. And it turned out he was at a shop just down the street.
"I’ve always been attracted to the number three. It’s got three points; I’ve got three brothers. Another important thing is the hand – it’s an open hand, a female hand. It’s giving, like Mother Nature.”
Jonas Brothers With the Obama Family
“I’ve been lucky to go to the White House a couple times. This photo is from when we played with Paul McCartney. The experience was one thing I was both … so excited to do and couldn’t wait to be done. I was nervous the whole time, playing for all these iconic people. But our first time there was especially memorable. We played just after Obama became president. Me and my brothers got a call being like, 'Hi, can you get on a plane and play for Obama’s daughters?’ We were the surprise at the end of a scavenger hunt for the girls. It’s so cool to have been a part of that era.”
Orange Bomber Jacket
“A paparazzi took a photo of me walking [in this jacket] next to a construction cone. So I tweeted it with caption, 'Who wore it better?’”
Shaquille O'Neal Cardboard Cutout
“When Cole and I lived together, we’d call our house the 'Chateau.’ We’d collect cardboard cutouts from radio stations and encourage fans to bring them to us onstage. We played on the James Corden show once – Cole is really good friends with the art director there. The guy made us these amazing cardboard cutouts – one of them was a massive Shaq head. I started our performance wearing the Shaq head, pretending to be Shaq. I obviously keep that at my house. … It’s now the 'Shaq-teau.’”
what she means:
why does everyone act like what i like about you never existed? that show was quality. a perfect sitcom for teens and young adults, and after Amanda Bynes went off the deep end, its like the show was 100% erased from society's minds. why should we dissolve Amanda's past when we could celebrate it? we still praise her performances in movies like easy a and she's the man, but what i like about you was 4 years of her life and 4 years of the crucial development of the early 2000s. abc family used to show it all the time. then the star gets a 51/50 and poof! my favorite show is gone! at least put it on netflix. that is some quality netflix material. its what netflix was made for. sure, i can find a million shows about a group of people in new york city, but how many shows can a find about a TEENAGER taking on new york city that aren't set up for 12 year olds or for supernatural settings? i just really miss holly tyler.
did you know the Real o Neals' main actor talked shit about Colton Hayne's coming out and outed one of their guest stars? The show is pretty shitty too because the acting and story-writing is less than on-par with most teen sitcoms anyway. 😂😂
Noah Galvin apologized profusely and valiantly for his Colton Haynes remarks. Also, he did not out a guest star. He told an anecdote about one of the actors on the show (it could be an extra for all we know). No name was given, so unless you are a Sookie Stackhouse telepath, there’s no way you could acquire a name for a person to be “outed.”
Anyway, the point of my Real O'Neals post is self-explanatory: you either support a show that offers one of the more legitimate and prominent representations of a gay teenager in mainstream media, or you don’t. If you have any desire to see more gay people on TV, (and this goes out to anyone reading this), it’s a good idea to support the show because, in Trump America, you’ll be seeing less and less examples of representation.
Anyway, you’re “so 2000 and late” with the Noah Galvin story, off base with the second part of it, and clearly missing the point about the post.
And, for the record, unbiasedly, the show has gone through a serious comedic improvement and, if you haven’t noticed that, you’re probably not watching to begin with, in which case, you may return to the queer-baiting-for-straight-girls land of TEEN WOLF that you likely hail from.
CELEBRATE 17 YEARS OF TLC’S SMASH HIT “NO SCRUBS” (JANUARY 23, 1999) BY GETTING INTO THE UNIQUE MAKEUP LOOKS FROM THE HYPE WILLIAMS DIRECTED MUSIC VIDEO!
FUN FACT: “NO SCRUBS” SHARES A BIRTHDAY WITH THE POPULAR TEEN SITCOM MOESHA, WHICH FIRST AIRED ON THIS DAY 20 YEARS AGO (JANUARY 23, 1996). ALSO, “NO SCRUBS” WAS FEATURED IN THE SHOW’S 1999 PROM EPISODE.
So, let me get this straight: Michael Jacobs, who has been writing television for decades, wrote an episode (GM the New Teacher) about how some comic books have been elevated to literary status even though for a long time most people thought of them as an art form lacking in potential for real literary substance—an episode which even included a little talk on how to engage critically with a visual medium…but he and his writing staff just deploy recurring motifs and imagery willy-nilly for nothing but cheap laughs and there couldn’t possibly be anything to glean from that because GMW is “just” a teen sitcom with absolutely no literary elements? It really doesn’t occur to people that a veteran of the teen sitcom genre might be taking this opportunity to ELEVATE THE GENRE? Just like Miller, Moore, and Morrison (et al) did for comics?
