the early 80s

If Hyde where to get a tattoo, what do you think he would get? (and if you think he wouldn't get one, why?)


I’m of two minds about Hyde getting a tattoo. On the one hand, he might think having a tattoo would be badass and rebellious (remember, he was a teen and in his early 20s before getting tattooed move into the mainstream).

On several other hands, sterilization of tattoo equipment would be a big concern in the late ‘70s, early ‘80s. Hepatitis is not something Hyde would want to get. He’d also probably have an issue with the permanence of a tattoo. Being free is of the utmost importance to him. Once he gets that Led Zeppelin tattoo on his arm, he can’t change his mind. Unlike a T-shirt, he can’t take off a tattoo. No laser tattoo removal back then, either (and even now, it’s unpleasant and expensive).

He used to say Blue Oyster Cult was “the soundtrack of the revolution”. Once he meets Chrissy, he changes his mind and declares that punk rock is the soundtrack of the revolution. For someone whose perspective is ever-evolving, committing to an idea he has in a specific moment would cause him regrets he’d want to avoid.

My personal headcanon is that he would not get tattooed (and I say this as someone who is pro-tattoo). As much as he loves his music, I’m not sure he’d want to make his body a living tribute to it or anything else.

Then again, with the abuse he suffered at Edna’s hands, he might feel like getting tattoos is a way of reclaiming his body.

So it all depends on one’s interpretation of the character. Her or his headcanons about him. Whatever experiences Hyde might have in a fanfic, for instance, could influence him in either direction.

What your favorite 3D console Zelda game says about you:
  • Ocarina of Time: You were born in the late 80s or early 90s and spent your childhood reading fantasy novels. You played this game when it was relatively new and it Changed Your Life™. You're a hardcore fan of the series but you bitch about every new game that comes out.
  • Majora's Mask: You love art games and stan for indie developers. You can't take anything at face value and love grimdark introspective AUs of innocuous stories. You almost definitely had a Hot Topic phase in middle school. Halloween is your favorite holiday.
  • Wind Waker: You're either a bright and innocent soul who loves adventure or a dead-eyed jaded motherfucker. Whenever anyone says the words "kiddie shit" you go ballistic.
  • Twilight Princess: Ocarina of Time fan born eight years later. You're not nearly as elitist as they are which makes them see you as their sworn ememy.
  • Skyward Sword: You're very soft and have a pastel tumblr theme with tiny text. You still love Disney movies. Hardcore Zelink shipper.
  • Breath of the Wild: You have Breath of the Wild and I hate you.

Sp Penthouse in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Project by Studio MK27

The celebrated Brazilian Studio MK27, founded in the early 80′s by architect Marcio Kogan -renowned as one of the most worldwide influential persons on the scene of design and architecture- designed the architectural interiors of this stunning penthouse in Sao Paulo. The goal was to create fluid open spaces with a cozy and solemn atmosphere, where the fixed custom contemporary furniture should be in perfect harmony with the design classics from the Brazialian, Scandinavian and Italian signs, such as Hans Wegner, Franco Albini and Gio Ponti.

Scumbag Aunt ripped off my Grandma for years, I put my nose in her business and had the IRS financially ruin her.

This is going to be long, so TL; DR; Aunt screwed over my Grandma for years, I put my nose in her business, got parents wise on the fraud and eventually reported her to the IRS. The long dick of the IRS bankrupted her and her husband and now they are destitute and too old to work. 

This happened about 5 years ago. My Grandma was getting old, late 80s/early 90s. She had one wish, to not die in a senior home. Easily done as my Grandpa sold some assets way back when, then invested the money and let it ride for 30+ years; he never touched it and collected a pension.

Way back when my Grandpa died, (about 10 years before this), my Grandma appointed my dad, this shitty aunt and my uncle as the Trustees of the trust. Basically the trusted advisors for her and her care for the foreseeable future. All was well in the beginning, then my dad (Willy) moved further away and couldn’t take care of the day to day upkeep as the Trustee and to see that my grandma was ok. My aunt (Rebecca) told her that she and my uncle (Fred, who lived in Arizona) could take over and all would be fine. It was fine for a while.
