so i didn’t sleep and i just binge-watched 13 reasons why, and this series is beautiful and well-written, the cinematography, the directing, the editing, the music, the acting, everything was so good
dylan minnette who plays the protagonist is especially captivating in how he played clay - from smart sarcastic dialogue to the little details of his anxiety to the scenes where he breaks down, for a show with a huge cast and storyline he was great in becoming this show’s foundation
I could feel my gray wrappings being inexorably stripped
away, and small bright streaks of pain shot through me like lightning bolts
I had no wish to come back, no desire to feel again. I didn’t
want to know love, only to have it ripped away once more.
But it was too late. I knew that, even as I fought to hold
the gray shroud around me. Fighting only hastened its dissolution; it was like
grasping shreds of cloud, that vanished in cold mist between my fingers. I
could feel the light coming, blinding and searing.
between the Anime and the Manga - Intro
I’m gonna be
posting the differences between the anime and the manga for every
episode. I’ll be doing each episode of s2 as it comes out,
and in between each episodes, I’ll be doing s1.
Just like many
others, I was hyped for season 2, so I decided to re-watch season 1 of
the anime. It was only my 3rd
time watching s1, and this time, I decided to re-read the manga as
well along the way, just to see what kind of changes the anime
I read the manga
more than 10 times, and even though I knew that there were many
changes in the anime, I was still surprised by how much.
First, I wanna say
that I love the anime, I think the animation is amazing, the voice
acting is perfect, and the music is beautiful. I liked watching every
scene from the manga animated, and I liked watching fillers
that we knew happened in the manga, but they weren’t shown (for
example in ep26 that would be Mike slicing up the Titans, that was awesome).
So I’m hyped for season 2, and I can’t wait to watch all those
amazing manga panels animated.
However, I don’t
like when scenes from manga are deleted or changed, and I’m not
interested to watch someone else’s head-cannons.
B: Chanyeol is absolutely my bestie. When I asked him whether he wants to go play
billiards together, he was like “I was just about to ask you too!”. This kind of thing
happens all the time. We get each other without words since we were trainees.
C: When we are alone, I feel we haven’t changed a bit since then,
like the way we joke around together. We have lots of favourite things in
common, so we naturally spend more time together (than other members). We play
games together, work out together, and we talk a lot about what we like, what
we’re interested in and forget about the time. We also have similar teste in
music as well.
B: Chanyeol is a good songwriter and can play variety of musical
instruments, so I have a lot to learn from him. I love how cheerful he always
is, and he makes people happy! Also, I like how tall, cool, and hardworking he
is. (To Chanyeol) But you should be more careful when you are really into
something, like action figures, you buy them too much!
C: Baekhyun always cares about me like this. He’s actually very
manly. He’s like a big brother, but sometimes too manly and hot-blooded. Haha.
I know that’s why you can lead us but go easy on me, please? Hahaha
B: We are the same age but I’m more like an elder brother.
C: You are right… I know Baekhyun is perfect in everything he does,
acting jobs like drama, musical, and duet songs, so I don’t especially say
anything about his activities outside EXO. I already know he’s always great.
B: Thank you. Someday, I want to sing a song that you wrote/composed!
I hope we will always remain besties!
There are few actors left in the world today who you could rightly refer to as ‘legend’. James Caan is one of them. Rather than let the weight of that name drag him down Scott Caan reveals how he carved out his own piece of the entertainment world and beyond.
“I’m a high-school drop-out,” Scott Caan says, laughing all the way from Oahu, Hawaii. The 40-year-old actor and LA native is taking time out of shooting the hit CBS show, Hawaii Five-O. Earlier in the day he visited the beach and squeezed in a session with his jujitsu instructor – as far a high school drop-outs go, he’s not doing too badly. He goes on, “I knew school wasn’t for me. Everybody in high school was thinking about what college they could go to or where to apply…and I was thinking about how not to go to the 11th grade.”
He is of course joking – in reality, Caan grew up in California as the son of the legendary actor James Caan and spent his childhood being immersed in the business of Hollywood. You might recognise him as the brash, blonde quiffed quick talker in Entourage, the crisp Turk Malloy in the Ocean’s 11 series or the slick detective Danny ‘Danno’ Williams in the long running hit Hawaii Five-O. It’s perhaps unsurprising then that he realised at an early age that academia wasn’t for him and there was an option to pursue his passion to be creative.
“My dad didn’t want me to get into the business,” laughs Caan. ”He knew it would be hard to do this job over and over again and it’s creatively hard to get excited about playing the same dude for seven years. My dad is probably one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. When you’re young you don’t see your father as a legend, you just know that he’s an interesting, colourful, wild kinda cat and you think, ‘I want to be like that guy’. If you come from creative people it’s just in you.”
The creative impulse is something, it seems, that was in his blood from the very beginning. Caan has done almost everything – music, surfing, photography, acting, directing. As a teenager in the early 90s he co-founded the hip hop collective The Whooliganz with his long time producer friend, The Alchemist, after gorging on artists like Nas, A Tribe Called Quest and Eric B & Rakim. At the time when B-Boy culture was making its way to LA from New York, Caan was beginning his love of counter-cultural art forms. “Hip hop was our punk,” he says. “It became the biggest culture in the world but at the time it was us being misfits. Graffiti, B-Boying, MCing and breakdancing was a way for us to be like, ‘we don’t wanna be on the football team, we don’t want to be on the baseball team, we wanna do this’.”
“At 15, I didn’t look up to the captain of the football team, I didn’t look up to the guys getting the best grades, I looked up to the guys in Venice [Beach], the guys smoking weed and surfing at the breakwater.”
Wanting to navigate his way through the world away from the preoccupations of the mainstream is a theme of Caan’s creative life away from acting. Now, the slick aesthetic of designer surf wear and slick surfers being captured on Instagram looks aspirational but, for Caan, it was the countercultural aspect of the culture that appealed to him as a teenager back in the 80s. “Surfing and skateboarding was our way of saying ‘fuck you’,” he says. “At 15, I didn’t look up to the captain of the football team, I didn’t look up to the guys getting the best grades, I looked up to the guys in Venice [Beach], the guys smoking weed and surfing at the breakwater.
“Now you have 13-year-old girls getting boards for their birthday. You go surfing and there’s guys pulling up with Range Rovers and long boards sticking out of their cars. All that stuff used to be underground and punk and now it’s mainstream. For us, it was our world, our version of being outcasts.”
He cites the infamous 2001 skating documentary Dogtown and Z -Boys as a good representation of what the culture felt like at the time – “skating is what we did when there were no waves” – and, for him, it was the freedom of being in open water that spoke to him. Today he still surfs as a way to force himself to reflect on ‘the moments.’ Its power might be why he now also works with A Walk On Water, a charitable organisation that seeks to use surfing as a tool to support children with special needs.
“I surf today because there’s something about being in the water – when you’re surfing a wave there’s really nothing to trip on. There’s really nothing else but the moment. It’s just something I don’t know how to explain.” For someone who lives in the highly structured world of Hollywood, the option to shrug off the tight structure of work life is understandable.
Women of Xal is a sophisticated visual novel that kept me hooked from the minute the music began at the start screen to the closing credits of the demo. The world that is created is so interesting and complex-but not so complex that even me of all people couldn’t understand it. I enjoyed each and every character, but particularly Velvet and mc. I want to romance Velvet so much… Anyway, each character is so interesting that i found myself wanting to know more about each one, what drives them and how they ended up at Xuna’s place. I want to see how my choices effect the trajectory of the game and what ending I will decide based on my choices. (If i can win the heart of Velvet i’ll be happy.) The music, the art, the voice acting-everything was extremely well done and beautiful. I will definitely play the full game if when the game reaches its goal on kickstarter.
Please back Women of Xal on kickstarter! It’s amazing and deserves the world-
I just watched dear Evan Hansen and it was so amazing. I probably legit cried like three or four times in the process of it all but it’s just so good? Here’s another musical for me to get obsessed over, oh well. Trigger warning though for anyone who might want to watch it/listen to the soundtrack. It deals/talks about (heavily talks about) social anxiety and suicide.
Hi Yu! Can I just say that I freakin' love your art? Your style is so cute, I love it. I've been following you for a while now and to be honest, I can't remember for what but I know I made a good choice with all the DR that you draw (Naegiri OTP). I remember seeing your comic voice acted, the one with Sayaka, and it was amazing. The art, the music, and the voice acting, everything fit so well together, it made me legit tear up. Please, keep up the amazing and fantastic work!
(Yes, do mention me about what you like when you send me kind messages especially when it’s something I know about and am into aaa I might be able to attach a little drawing or something ;v;/ have a naegiri//)
Now onto the reply sorry for replying so late ;v; the day I got this message I had to take a test;; and I couldn’t reply right back but I remember having gotten a lot of strength from this message of yours!!/// I feel really, really happy from getting lovely asks like these. I’ve been safekeeping quite a few, and they never get old.. mm, it really makes me want to keep trying!! Thank you so much! I hope you’ve been enjoying your stay, it relieves me that you feel that I’m a good blog to follow, and the fact that you love my art makes me excited!//
YES!! I remember about that too! it’s this one right here, dubbed by the lovely narwhal. (I WANT TO REDRAW THAT COMIC NOW aa I like the idea and I really felt like drawing it before I forgot but it looks so rushed now;;) I listen to it when I feel a little down, it was a wonderful dub. About three of my drawings got dubbed and two of the asks I’ve sent got lovely dubs too and I drew fanart for it, dubs.. are so incredible. I never thought that good of a thing would happen to me, but it did, and the dr fandom is full of talented people, seriously. We have people capable of doing a lot of different things and contributing to the fandom in many unique ways of their own. I felt very happy and lucky for having this happen to me and when I remember about this time to time I still feel so lucky!!// You say it was a good choice for you to have followed me and I feel that’s a very lovely thing to have heard..// I feel the same way about having joined the dr fandom on my end. It’s been a pleasant journey so far and I was able to meet a lot of wonderful people, and also find people who like my things too which makes me all the more happier!//
Bless you so much!! ‘v’/ my works ain’t so propro yet but I aspire to make something that would make people go “wow that’s so cool” someday. In ten years maybe, I’m going to give myself a lot of time. But definitely someday!// And I hope to see you there too, it’ll be so lovely to have you and all the lovely people I’ve met with me!// have a lovely weekend, this week wasn’t the best for me in fact I was feeling pretty stressed out just thirty minutes ago writing papers and stuff;; but while I was answering I felt a lot better and happier.
Sorry the reply got super long too! I got a bit carried away as always, I hope you don’t mind! ><;; Have fun and see you around! I think I’ll linger around drawing a bit before I head off to sleep tonight
So if I remember correctly, I'm pretty sure you took off your glasses when you were acting as evil Wheatley in the Portal 2 Musical. So was everything blurry during that or was it harder to act or what?
They were fake glasses in the show; I was wearing contact lenses the entire time.
I really hate the fact that the majority of the Sherlock fandom is blindly hating TFP(and the season in general) just because Johnlock didnt become canon.Sure,there were plot holes,the graphics for the flat explosion scene was horrible,but the episode was definitely great.The acting,the music,the general storyline,everything was enjoyable.So if everyone could evaluate the episode by keeping your disappointment for Johnlock not becoming canon aside,that would be great.
he left next to normal when he got cast in wicked but the producer of wicked encouraged him to go back to next to normal because he thought it was going to be a hit. aaron went back to next to normal and it was a hit, and aaron gave the wicked producer a hand-embroidered pillow that said “you were RIGHT!”
he loves baking sweet potato pies and says he usually eats the whole thing himself
he is known for always knowing all his lines and everybody elses but one time his parents visited the set of graceland and he couldn’t remember anything and he kept messing up just because he knew his parents were watching
a fan sent him a bobblehead of himself with no letter or anything with it, so he didn’t know “who in the heck” gave it to him. later on, that fan met him at the stage door for catch me if you can and asked if he’d gotten the bobblehead and he “attacked” and hugged her and told her how much he loves it and how he always makes its head wobble for his friends
at the broadway.com 2013 audience choice awards there was an open bar and aaron had to help present a few awards part of the way through:
his first week in wicked on broadway he tripped and fell over on stage and the audience laughed at him and he jumped back up and kept going
with his fiyero outfit: “i didn’t like it. it was all up in my neck business.”
when asked what his favorite breed of dog is, he went on a big tangent about different breeds, how he just loves all dogs, how you should rescue dogs if you can, and how the most important thing is that you love it and take care of it
when asked if he prefers cats or dogs: “dogs all the way. cats and i have an understanding, but we choose not to interact often.”
he had a giant head when he was a kid so the other kids called him “aaron airhead” and he went home and told his mom and she said “that’s because you have a lot of brains”
his stuntman for graceland is indiana jones in disney world. aaron is very excited about this
in high school, aaron was the lead in all the musicals, played three sports, worked construction with his dad in the summers, and was the president of a business club he created. he then was offered a full-ride scholarship to an ivy league school (cornell) but turned it down to study music and acting. also, aaron can’t spell the word “pink”
everything about this moment (she’d given them cards for a game):
and in that ^^ same interview he bashfully complimented the interviewer for her “nice, yellow dress”
he loves to golf and says golf commentary relaxes him
he used to make up “five-act plays” for himself when he was on tour with rent, to entertain himself. aaron says: “i thought everyone was like this!”
re: people making fun of him for the things he likes: "that wouldn’t be very good :(”
he can clap with one hand and says that that’s his special talent. forget that he is a broadway singer, can play several instruments, speaks more than one language, etc etc. he can clap with one hand, and he is very proud
