that show was not my kind of show

zeal-teal  asked:

Hello! Sorry to bother you, but I really love your work! Your sense of color and form is amazing! I'm an aspiring artist and I've been looking through your blog and I've been wondering what kind of brushes and stuff you use to lineart and color in Clip Studio Paint, since not a lot of artist on tumblr have even heard of the program. ;w;

Hi! Thank you so much for asking! I tried to show some of my favourites. These are my most used brushes. I don’t change the settings on them at all, because I’m ok with them the way they are already. Generally I sketch with the sketchy brush, line with the line brush I showed, then do my basic colouring with the one painting brush. The other ones I use for BG and for blending in my colours.

The first time I tried coffee, I was convinced that it was the most vile thing on Earth. Granted, it was that super bitter, low-quality instant stuff. As I got older and tried higher quality beans and roasts, I fell in love with its complexity. Fast-forward seven years and there I was working as a barista in a quirky little coffee shop in downtown Toronto.

I had always wanted to go to college outside of the United States; I could never really stay contentedly in one place. The constant relocation that came with having parents whose jobs included constant moves was the most likely cause of my wanderlust. That, and the fact that I was raised in places like Germany and England, Texas and Canada. Out of the thirteen different places I had lived, Canada was my favorite; granted, it was Niagara Falls which was known for being very American. Canada was just foreign enough to be separate from the U.S., but Toronto was only seven hours away from where my parents had retired to in Indiana. They weren’t happy about me studying in another country, but conceded that Toronto wasn’t as bad as sending me off to Europe.

The stress of classes hadn’t quite hit me yet, as it was only three weeks into the fall semester of my freshman year at the University of Toronto. I was feeling confident enough to get a job at a coffee shop a couple of blocks away from campus and was enjoying the sense of purpose it gave me. I did however dread the idea that I would possibly have to give it up if my grades started to slip. Granted, the employee benefits of working at a niche little place like Espresso Yourself, along with the free coffee and flexible hours, it would be difficult to leave, no matter how tough my classes got.

After about a month of working at Espresso Yourself, I already had a few regular customers. Most of them were young professionals who would show up in immaculate suits and with purposeful, if not superior, expressions on their faces. While they all seemed to order the same three things, kind of like how they all wore variations of the same three outfits, I learned to predict whether someone would order real coffee or a fancy, sugary drink from the rest of my customers.

Adversely, the only two true regulars who didn’t show up dressed like they would kill each other for a job were two young guys who pretty much lived in Toronto Maple Leafs gear. Despite them being regulars, they never seemed to show up at the same time every day, but by their third visit I knew them by name and their orders by heart. Mitch was the shorter of the two and without fail would order a caramel mocha with extra whip. His friend Auston (double espresso, splash of cream) teased Mitch mercilessly after every order for choosing something so sugary and girly, to which Mitch complained that it was the only out of diet thing he consumed and that he was trying to put on weight anyway. The two bickered like frat boys. Or old women.

Like a very good person once say to me here ( they weren’t a Darren fan, sometimes they were very critical but they loved to observe the cc Fandom and pointing some things) being observant it’s most of the times the key for everything. Emotionally I would like to kick some ass, because being a Darren fan for years means now I’m able to understand with the kind of tics he shows the emotion behind what he says. And what I see the most, almost well covered, it’s anger. It was the same of the Wendy Williams show of 2014, the one that says: geez we are still talking about this stuff? Not the protection of the lgbtqa+ rights but where I allegedly put my penis at the end of the day if I want to f*** someone. And we are talking about March and the computer games promo so beard related stuff . I remember very well the kind of interviews made by Wentworth Miller…the tone and the shit said were the same. I’m a “ straigh dude”. mmh well it was the sentence that made me angry because of what I saw on his face but made me totally laugh because of the words chosen at the same time. Dear Michael and Ricky: shame on you because it’s not a dude, he’s a man of 30yo not a frat boy and it is starting to being creepy the way you wanna still present him to the audience. He’s a valid artist who deserves to live his life as the person he is. There’ s nothing that can’t erase NYC pride of 2015 you jerks! Not a Darren with tics and uneasy. Trying to validate an heterosexuality that doesn’t exist you are making him look like a jerk towards his community the same that he always supported without all this shit. Good is that there isn’t maybe a person in Broadway and Los Angeles who doesn’t know that Darren is all but an het. So as usual you have accomplished nothing but make him uncomfortable for the 4848474 times in his life and make us angry that I know that means more talking and activities from us and so more attention, I studied some pr too. But it’s unacceptable keep on playing with Darren’s life after all this years. I hope you gave him something in return , I swear to God.

cyprus-ave  asked:

Do you know if any characters have two moms/two dads? I remember the show covering practically everything but gay marriage, except for this one "a word from us kids" where they go to a farm run by two ladies. It got banned in my state so I never saw it rip :(

unfortunately, no. that’s something the arthur team hasn’t really broached in the show. they kind of went there once, in a postcards from buster episode that showed him meeting several kids with lesbian mums, but ofc there was a ~~controversy~~ about it, so i can get why they’d be hesitant to do something like that again. IT’S A DAMN SHAME THOUGH

you know a finale is horrible when the only thought you have afterwards is “haha okay this was fun, but where is the REAL finale”

UNHhhh is the best thing that has ever happened to my internet experience. I adore Trixe and Katya, and their comedic chemistry is insane. Their fucked senses of humor play off each other sooo well and I’m always excited to hear what kind of nonsense is going to come out of their mouths, because they’re the kinds of friends who can say anything to each other and the other will usually run with it (or run offscreen screaming, which is just as good lmao). They bring so much SILLINESS out of each other, you know? And it’s this weirdly soft and sweet kind of thing that’s amazing to watch, because they like each other so much. They’re just fucking funny, and I look forward to Monday nights because of them.

asks are fun let’s party


Terrence looks legitimately sorry. 

- I’m afraid I don’t know much about fishing. I wouldn’t have done that otherwise. Once again, I’m sorry.

Brook looks away. The fish are gone now, so that’s that. What’s done is done. She still caught quite many before he showed up, so he didn’t completely ruin her outing. 

Terrence: Can I make it up to you somehow?

Brook: You know what, it’s fine. Just think before doing something next time.

He nods.

- So, do you have any plans for tonight? Other than fishing, that is, since I kind of messed it up?

Brook shrugs.

- My friend is giving a show tonight, so I’m going.

An idea hits her: Terrence is having trouble finding inspiration for his writing, isn’t he? Well, a magic show can be quite good for experiencing new things. 

- You should come, actually. It’s at the park.

Terrence: Seriously? How much are the tickets?

Brook: It’s free - the park is hosting it to bring more people in to their fair.

Terrence: I can go, I guess. 

Brook: It’s a magic show, it’ll be fun.

Terrence: Magic show? Eh, I’m not really a believer.

Brook: So? It’s still fun. And when was the last time you’ve seen one?

Terrence: Hmm, I actually haven’t. Ever. Ok, you have a point. I’ll be there.

secret crush | Tom holland x famous reader

requests are open

Tom’s POV

So today I’m going on the Jimmy Kimmel show with Zendaya and being honest I’m very nervous and I don’t know what they gonna ask me. But apparently (y/n) (y/l/n) is going to be on the show as well and she is 100% my biggest woman Crush Wednesday. I just hope nothing is brought up and I don’t completely embarrass myself in front of her.

(Y/n) POV

So I’m waiting backstage at the Jimmy Kimmel show today to promote my new movie I’m kind of nervous because this is a major show I’m going on and I heard there’s a lot of other big celebrities here. I mean Tom holland and Zendaya are here and they also have a really cool movie coming out it would be cool to meet them and Toms kind of cute too so that’s a bonus.
“(Y/n) you’re on in 15 you will be doing a game with the other guests” someone calls out.

Tom’s POV

“So how excited are you for the release of this movie you must feel like you have really made something great” jimmy asked Zendaya and I.

“I mean it’s mad honestly, I feel so lucky and honoured that I’ve got to take on the role again but this time in my own movie, it’s absolutely incredible” I responded with the biggest smile.

Then Zendaya spoke up “ I couldn’t agree more it’s been incredible to make and we have had such amazing people along side us for the journey which is awesome”.

“That’s absolutely great guys from what I’ve seen of the movie it looks like the best Spider-Man movie yet. So Tom there’s some rumours going around that you have your eye someone in Hollywood care to explain” jimmy questioned.

Oh god no, I can’t say it I mean she’s literally back stage.please don’t say anything Zendaya.

I could feel myself blushing gosh this is so embarrassing, “nah there’s none just rumours you know”.

Then Zendaya started talking “don’t be embarrassed tommy you can say it not like she will find out”.

“What are you talking about” I chuckled as the crowd began chanting for me to say it.

“(Y/n) (y/l/n) you always talk about how pretty she is and how good she is in (ur fav show)” Zendaya said with pride. Oh god.

There’s no hiding, this can’t be happening.

“Oh really she’s actually backstage right now” jimmy stated, “what really oh Tom sorry” Zendaya said nervously as I sent her a little glare.

“(Y/n) (y/l/n) come on out” jimmy called.


I was sitting backstage watching Zendaya and Tom Holland currently getting interviewed by Jimmy. When they asked Tom about his celebrity crush, omg he’s blushing Aahahha this sure is gonna be interesting. That’s when Zendaya said it my name, Tom had a crush on me no way she’s got to be kidding.

That’s when I heard “(y/n) (y/l/n) come on out” oh god.

I walked out waving at the crowd, smiling towards Tom, jimmy and Zendaya god he looked so embarrassed poor guy.

I hugged Zendaya and introduced myself as Tom stood up and I pulled him into a big hug as I whispered “sorry about this, you’re too sweet though” we pulled away as I saw him blushing. I quickly gave jimmy a hug and took a seat.

“So (y/n) I’m sure you were watching the show backstage what do you think” jimmy asked.

Oh god I feel so bad for the guy but he’s a whole lot hotter than I thought gosh.

“I think it’s so sweet and definitely we will have to hang out sometime” I said sending him a wink, what can I say I’m a bit of a flirt.

toms POV

wow she is more beautiful than I thought.

20 mins later the interview and game had ended. Y/n POV

I went back, backstage as I saw Tom heading to his dressing room.

“Hey Tom wait up” I called running in my heels.

“Oh hey (y/n)” he said smiling nervously.

“If what was said out there was true I’d love to hang out sometime so here’s my number message me throw it away it’s your choice” I said handing over my number and giving him a small hug.

Let’s just say he called and I can’t wait to hang out on our date ;).

hello! i normally poke around your blog for otayuri stuff, but you also watch cdramas? i was wondering if you were willing to rec any? i'd like to maybe watch them but don't know anything about them.

Ahhh, I have a few rec posts under this tag! It really all kind of depends on what genre you’re into, but there should be at least one show for every thing you might be into in that tag. I’ll throw in a few new recs too! :D 

If you’re here for the happy stuff, I’d highly recommend you start with modern cdramas, since those have a higher possibility of ending happy. Because of Meeting You is super adorable and super easy to watch! Mostly a romcom, with uhhhh, quite a bit of ~family drama~ interspersed. I have been recommended Across the Ocean to See You quite a few times; I haven’t started on it yet, but it feels like my kind of show. A more serious modern drama to tie this up, In the Name of the People comes very highly recommended, and I’m planning to start this really soon. It’s about government corruption in China and the anti-corruption bureau trying to weed these officials out, and stars a lot of Big Names in China showbiz. 

If you, like me, like to make yourself cry, period cdrama is the thing for you! Princess Agents, my friend. I’m not even going to tell you how many times I’ve cried over this show already. ALL MY FAVOURITES SUFFER. DDDDD: Super fun to watch, though. It’s about ancient spy organisations! Also the male lead high-key has a crush on the female lead and he’s been SO FUCKING EXTRA ABOUT IT, it’s amazing to watch. The Advisors Alliance is supposed to be pretty good, but it starts out a little slow. I’ve watched the first episode, and it’s not the most griping episode to start out with, but I’ve been told it gets better. Language-wise, definitely harder to watch than PA. 

If none of the shows are to your liking, hmu with another message to let me know what kind of shows you generally prefer, and I’ll be happy to dig out new recs for you! :D

Fic Idea: The whole Batfam (plus Duke) manage to gather in the living room without killing one another to watch a show they all enjoy:)

This fic is sort of inspired by my own family and our tradition of watching America’s Funniest Home Videos (for people who don’t know, the show is basically funny home videos submitted by the viewers.) Despite our differences, we always managed to find something to enjoy about the show because of it’s variety and it was just something to do on Sunday nights. Also, I kind of got carried away here but let’s face it there was no way there was going to be zero fighting when everyone got together.

It was a Sunday night at Wayne Manor and the entire batfamily, as Dick likes to refer to them as, is gathered in front of Bruce’s huge TV. Dick is the one that insists they have these TV nights and he’s had Alfred guilt everyone else into showing up as often as they can. 

Sometimes, though it happens very rarely, everyone is able to make it and tonight seems to be one of those nights. There have been nights where only Dick, Alfred, and Damian have been able to show up and those nights normally end in Damian storming off and going to see Colin. But then again, every time Damian has ‘had enough of your never-ending stupidity’ he ends up at Colin’s.

There are very specific seating arrangements for these nights to keep everyone from killing each other. Tim and Damian are kept as far apart as possible with Tim ending up near Jason and Damian ending up next to Dick. Babs, Steph, and Kate (when she decides to show up) all sit together and whisper the whole time. Dick is convinced that they’re always talking about him when they do that. Bruce sits next to Alfred and Duke tends to sit wherever he likes much to Damian’s irritation.

“Grayson, must we watch this pathetic excuse for television with these idiots every week?,” Damian asks as the show’s theme song begins to play.

“Don’t deny that you love this show, Little D, the cute animals get you every time. And don’t call them idiots, they are your family,” Dick chides without much conviction.

“Shut up you two, Tom  Bergeron’s commentary is the best part of this show,” Jason says.

“I thought people scaring the shit out of their family members was the best part of the show for you?,” Tim points out.

“Language Timmy! There are innocent children present. Besides, my opinions are allowed to change,” Jason replies.

“If you are referring to me as an innocent, that crowbar did more damage than we all thought,” Damian mutters.

Jason jumps to his feet and lunges towards Damian but before he can pummel the little twerp, someone grabs him and holds him in place. He turns his head to see Bruce looking at him with his disappointed face on. Uh oh.

“Ooh Jason’s in troooubleee! Give him a timeout, B,” Stephanie calls out.

 “Take away his technology privileges for a week!,” Dick yells.

“Ban him from wearing his eyeliner that we all know he wears despite the constant denials,” Duke adds.

“Hey I am in my twenties, Bruce can’t ground me anymore,” Jay says.

“I’m legally an adult and he can still ground me, Jay,” Tim grumbles.

“Everyone stop it! Jason, Damian, you were both out of line. Your punishment is going to be to sit here with us and watch the rest of the episode without complaining or running off to Colin’s,” Bruce says, putting his foot down.

“Aw come on, that’s the worst possible punishment,” Jason complains.

“We are your family, Jason. Spending time with us shouldn’t be considered a punishment. You can come sit with us if you’re so afraid of the child,” Barbara says.

“I’m not sure who should be more offended, me or Damian. Besides, I’m perfectly fine here with Tim.”

“Yeah you are,” Steph says with a suggestive eyebrow wiggle.

“Oh my god, Steph. For the last time, we are not secretly dating despite the fact that you fill the entire Red Hood/Red Robin fanfiction tag single-handedly,” Tim whines.

“Everybody shut up, there’s a cute dog on the screen,” Damian screams and everyone’s bickering is cut off.

Alfred, Duke, and Cass watch the whole scene unfold as silently as possible because if there’s one thing they know, it’s not to get involved when Jason and Damian start going at it. 

They do eventually get to watch the rest of the show in (relative) peace and despite the fighting and insults that get thrown around on Sunday nights, none of them would have it any other way.

y'all ever think about how Nicki and Mariah had a chance to help create something special and revive a dying franchise while injecting some realness into it… 

Or how they could have used the platform to make sure the Black women on the show got the kind of support and honest guidance they needed and clearly were not getting (based on what Fantasia and Jennifer Hudson have said about the show) …

but instead they were petty? instead Nicki didn’t feel like Mariah deserved proper respect for her decades of success and standing along the absolute best, being revered across genres and Mariah couldn’t tone down the diva just a little and think about the bigger picture of what they could accomplish here? 

no doubt in my mind that the network was doing shady bs to amp up drama between them, but they’ve both been in this business long enough to recognize bullshit when they see it and helping just ONE Black woman, who otherwise would have had a hard time breaking through but has a once-in-a-lifetime voice, really shine while shedding a light on exactly what Black women face in the entertainment industry from their different perspectives… that would have been awesome.

idk… i think about it every now and then and fill a deep disappointment.

Do you love or hate Rebecca?


i’ve seen Discussion about this on my dash (and when will anons stop bothering @capseycartwright every time she dares to have an opinion) but honestly, anon, you’re asking the wrong person. 

i have a huge issue with the incident because of consent. rebecca triggers me. i don’t hate her, i just have trouble separating her from the incident. i know not everybody sees it that way, which is fair enough and they’re more than entitled to, but it means i just can’t have any other opinion than “please don’t show me her face” hence the not watching the show part. (i still can’t believe that anon who went through the show just for me so i could not be triggered by rebecca ;_;)

tbh rebecca is part of my decision to step away from the show side of fandom; it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to hang around tumblr with the kind of vitriol i see aimed at rebecca (and more important EMILY. why would you even. i was grossed out by her interview but that didn’t mean i wanted to go to her twitter and hate on her. geez. if i hated every actor who had said something they maybe hadn’t thought about beforehand, i’d never like anybody lmao). i understand people’s frustration and anger at her - i do! i’m triggered by her after all - but i’m also disgusted with and hate the way she’s described, and also treated in general by fandom.

i’m just Tired in general of this question. no anger at you, anon! but i’m tired of the question, i’m tired of the show, i’m Tired. 

i just want to write about robron in love (and dying because i Suck) and about adopting lots of animals and being Happy Forever.
