Rebrand the World!

I read an article about how fantastic it is that Steven Spielberg was brought on to direct “Ready Player One” because he was the only person who could unite the world’s most powerful brands, allowing the characters to talk about popular media and make cultural references and, you know… speak like modern human beings.

If you don’t have Spielberg’s clout and money, making a film seems like a legal minefield.  In a world where corporations own trademarks on things like architecture, public landmarks, and words, what does one do when shooting a post apocalyptic movie set in Los Angeles; a city that marketing barfed all over?

The Answer: Rebrand the World!

My brief review of the Netflix Castlevania show:

-Lisa did nothing wrong and deserved none of this.
-Dracula could have just made all the churches explode I feel like that would have been preferable.
-Trevor is relatable? Like not the alcoholism part but the “I wanna die” part totally.
-Syphe(?) is a sweet pea and also did nothing wrong.
-Alucard is a goth icon.
-I love his entire everything.
-I want to be Alucard when I grow up.
-All four episodes felt like pilot episodes. Here’s hoping season 2 actually gives us a plot, maybe.

So here is how it is with the whorehouses, I think myself. I would like to TALK with them and maybe get to know some and they see so many folk, they must have many interesting thing to says, yeah? Yes and also I would like to get what their job is, everyone goes to the whorehouses to fuck, I am not going to whorehouses and not to fuck, that’s stupid. But ALSO to talk, yeah? But also I know that the whores they don’t want to talk to a customer. They want to do a job and get money paid and it’s done. So I would be a bother to them and maybe also I would be getting the syph. Not so much fun for nobody!

anonymous asked:

in my story the races are based on the elements - fire, Air, water and earth. would there be a problem with having races a certain skin colour? for example the race of fire people (salamanders) would be black and have fire powers. the race of air people (syphs) would be very tanned and be able to control the air around them. is there anything wrong with this idea?

Elemental Powers Based on Race

Sounds cool. I don’t think it’s necessarily wrong to have certain elemental powers per race. I’m curious as to your explanation for it, though. Did whatever power or event that instilled the powers within these race give it to a specific race or ethnic group? Was it a regional thing, such as a natural event effecting certain groups of people in a certain region? Do the powers themselves influence their appearance?

Sort out the genetic aspects of this concept, even if it’s merely “the gods gave fire powers to the Salamanders who are a people of dark brown skin.” And if the element in question has/had some significance to these people, it’d add a layer of depth to why they have these powers.

To avoid making a monolith of your PoC as all looking as one, I suggest you add physical diversity within your groups of people as well. There may have various shades and undertones of brown and black skin even within the Black Salamander race. Check out the skin tone guide for resources there. There’s also hair and features to consider, those that are common to the race and the many distinctions within.

Ohio sex ed class says marriage prevents STDs.

In Ohio, the sexual education course in public schools consists of whatever information the school district feels the kids should receive.  It doesn’t have to be medically accurate or factual, it just has to be approved by some crochety old Christians voting on it from a position of Puritanical shame and outright denial of teenaged sexuality.  In Wayne and Holmes Counties, that information includes:

  • Marriage can prevent STDs.
  • The only option after being raped is adoption***.
  • Children should not be had until after marriage.

This is what happens when you let a “faith-based pregnancy center” teach sex ed in the public school system.

-The helping hand of a Dragon Trainer- (Lance / Syph Role-Play!)

The day started fresh. Dawn cracked, sunlight piercing through the shadows which remained after the night sky turned. The morning breeze started sweeping through each blade of grass and each leaf dangling from the trees. A few leaves had reached the end of their purpose, and the stem which connected to the branch had grown weak to the very point of breaking, causing the leaves to fall and with a dying, however beautiful colour. It was the start of Autumn. 

Knowing and having to met the young girl, Syph, Lance had decided to spend this day proficiently and give her another visit, seeing if she would love a helping hand for the day. Lance was indeed interested in getting to now the best kinds of all breeding centres, and he couldn’t help but grin at what this would mean for, Syph also, knowing she’s one of, Lance’s major fans but an idol to her since she was young. 

Lance wasn’t alone on this journey to the Daycare. If anything, he wouldn’t avoid a chance in the world to be travelling with his mighty companion, Dragonite. The pair are the dynamic duo, and the pair are so very well known nearly globally also that people know Dragonite as, Lance’s best. The two had survive many hardships and trials, and nearly enough, the whole of their lives together. The bond couldn’t have been better for them both.

As, Lance and Dragonite travelled with each other onwards to the Daycare, he thought back to the reason and prime achievement that, Syph mentioned was her drive for keeping such a magnificent Daycare open to one and all. Her Grandfather taught her nearly everything, and in which, this reflected on, Lance also. He lived a similar life style compared to, Syph, being taught by his Grandfather but more towards the goal of being the inherent ruler of the Dragon clan in Blackthorn as the Dragon Master. He wasn’t alone during then, since he had Dragonite with him, who was but a Dratini back then, and he also had his best friend and dear cousin, Clair. The times weren’t exactly easy, but rather rough living. It never faulted, Lance from his objective and goal however, and even though the two hasn’t exactly spent the most comfiest of times together, he and his grandfather respect each other greatly. 

Upon thinking back to, Syph which had lead to his own memories, he didn’t realize that the Daycare was next to him now. He and Dragonite had stopped, and, Lance’s right hand had knocked on the front door of the Daycare Centre. 

(( The starter may seem crappy and basic, but I’m getting back into writing. I’ll be better than this in the future so please don’t mind this! Ahah. ))
