(Wrong holiday i know) pokemon-global-academy, this was my first time drawing something on my 3DS that actually likes somewhat good. I did use a template for omanyte’s body except for the arms. If anyone has any pointers, please let me know.
(Also made Helix’s shell clear in case I wanted to do something weird. May change it to easter later tonight)
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence, July 4th 1776
i’ve talked it over with a friend, it’s a foolproof plan.
It starts with the 4th of July. Hear me out.
Christmas is an international holiday, yes? People go X-mas crazy here in the states. What is it? A holiday centered around a birthday, essentially. What is July 4th? America’s birthday.
Step 1: Make July 4th more of a holiday than it already is. Have every fuckin’ American go fuckin’ crazy for “America’s 2nd Christmas.” So every home has a flag that they stick presents under. People go door-to-door singing the national anthem. It becomes a sort-of “Hallmark holiday,” everyone spends billions a year to have the perfect Second Christmas, I get the credit for starting this celebration. And you fucking know people will eat this shit up, people are always looking for an excuse to celebrate America. So everyone loves me.
Step 2: I run for president of the fucking United States. I’ve already won everybody’s affection, they love me because I gave them an excuse to worship America. So I win the presidential election of 2k31 (that’s when i turn 35 (can you run if you’re younger? or do you have to be 35 to run, too?)). Then, holy shit, I’m America’s first gay, transgender president. I change shit out the wazoo. And people can’t get mad at me because I gave them the gift of Second Christmas. BOOM. It’s perfect and I expect all of y’all’s votes.
Also, small disclaimer: I’ve taken exactly one semester of high school government. But I have 16 years to sort shit out, so before y’all bombard me with questions and doubts, think of how cool I am and reblog all of my selfies. Then I’ll answer your questions (probably not, tho bc i kno diddlysquat about gov’t)
Okay Okay I have to tell someone this because this is too ridiculous I can’t
Okay so every year my town has fireworks for the 4th of July and they play accompanying music on the radio so my family will drive to a good spot to watch them and play the music on our radio boom box thing. Normal so far. Nothing odd. And the music is pretty much what you would expect. God Bless America, America the Beautiful, the usual patriotic things, even Katy Perry’s “Firework” recently. And for some years now, I’m going to guesstimate it was around when I was 12 so 8 years, there has been this song. The lyrics don’t seem all that out of place and I mean it’s just guys shouting out things like “TRUTH”, “HONOR” for the most part, but there was this niggling feeling in the back of my mind that it was SO FAMILIAR. Over the years I thought, “I think this is from a movie” and eventually I was like “Omg is this from FREAKIN QUEST FOR CAMELOT?!!?” but I thought No, surely that is ridiculous. I mean I haven’t seen that movie in years and don’t remember it well, why would I EVEN THINK THAT?
So today I saw the movie Quest for Camelot mentioned somewhere and I thought of this and I was like “y’know what I am going to watch this movie. I am going to find out once and for all if I’m actually crazy or not”
and guess what
IT IS FROM FREAKING QUEST FOR CAMELOT. EVERY YEAR DURING THE FIREWORKS MY TOWN PLAYS THIS FREAKING SONG FROM QUEST FOR FREAKING CAMELOT WHERE THEY ALL HOLD UP THEIR SHIELDS AND SHOUT THINGS AND I SERIOUSLY CAN’T HELP BUT WONDER WHO EVEN MADE THIS DECISION. DO OTHER PEOPLE KNOW? AM I AND WHOEVER THE PERSON THAT GOT THIS SONG TO BE PLAYED IN THE FIRST PLACE THE ONLY TWO WHO WILL EVER REALIZE? WHY JUST HOW WHAT
