Easy-ish Ways to Help The Planet For Free or Cheap
I’m aiming to make sure everything on this list is either free, very cheap or saves you money in the long run. I also don’t want to include anything that requires owning a house because this is 2017 and we’re all millennials here
You’ve heard this one before but if you menstruate, buy reusable products. The average person uses tens of thousands of pads and tampons in their menstruating life, which is not only wasteful but expensive.
If you wear makeup, use cloth pads instead of disposable wipes. You can even make your own makeup remover using olive or coconut oil and water.
The same goes for cleaning supplies: use washable cloths and for extra brownie points buy non toxic or eco cleaning supplies such as Ecover brand supplies or castille soap.
Buy bar soaps in paper instead of gels in plastic bottles. It’s usually as cheap if not cheaper, although it’s harder to find bar face soaps.
Support local small businesses!
Try indulging your online shopping cravings and/or doing some groceries on EthicalSuperstore.com or EthicalShop.org if you’re in the british isles. If anyone knows any equivalents in the USA or anywhere else please add it below!
If you have bulk stores nearby, bring your own containers and buy unpackaged bulk items.
If you can use public transport to get somewhere, always choose this over using your car. Try to nurture a ‘driving is my last resort’ mentality.
If you’re planning a holiday (lucky you!) consider exploring the beauty spots in your own country instead of going abroad to avoid air travel. I know you want to be ‘cultured’, but why not get to know your own culture a little better? Plus, the tourist industry can often be really damaging to some beautiful countries.
Buy a stainless steel reusable water bottle and stop buying bottled water if your tap water is drinkable. If it isn’t, look into filters.
Replace some of your meat with meat-free alternatives and/or try to eat less meat. Regardless of your stance on animal rights, livestock farming is bad for climate change.
Loan $25 to small business owners struggling with poverty all over the world with Kiva.com. Not only is a $25 microloan fairly affordable when it comes to potentially pulling someone out of poverty, but if and when they start earning, they’ll pay you back! And the site pays your second loan for free! Plus you can claim to be an investor on your CV. Look out for causes where a lender is matching your donations to make maximum impact.
Watch documentaries (legally) to support people who are spreading the word/doing something about issues, and to educate yourself and get more ideas on how to help.
Stop buying new clothes and start buying vintage or second-hand. I’ll let you off for shoes an underwear.
Look for products in glass or metal not plastic. Not only are you more likely to reuse them, but they’re much easier to recycle and are more often made from recycled materials.
Buy metal safety razors and razorblades instead of disposable plastic ones.
Set Ecosia as your homepage and default search engine. It’s a search engine that uses its profits to plant trees! You plant about one tree every forty searches
For both the planet and the people, go to GreaterGood.com and click a button to donate to a different cause on each tab. You can do it once a day.
Recycle. Even if they don’t have home collection where you live, there should at least be a collection point you can go to.
Don’t throw away empty jars and bottles. Use them to fill with other things, especially homemade food, drink and toiletries.
Use your vote to support politicians, locally and nationally, who prioritise the environment.
Share your eco-doings on social media. Give local small businesses a shout-out by by posting pics of your delicious meal or pretty soap and tagging them, or let people know that you took your old furniture to the recycling place at [address].
Get new furniture from Freecycle or similar sites to save money, prevent those things from going to landfill, and avoid using up new resources on new furniture. Also, donate your own old stuff.
If you have free time, try volunteering. If you can’t commit to a regular shift, look for local beach cleans or similar events.
Watch YouTube videos by people living zero waste, low energy or eco-food lifestyles. You’re not only supporting them and spreading their message, you can pick up some tips. You don’t have to go vegan or zero waste or whatever, but just one or two changes can help. I recommend trashisfortossers especially as a starting point!
Stick seeds or roots of your vegetables into pots and grow your own vegetables from it. Some of these are super easy, some might need a bit more effort. Celery really takes off.
If you have the confidence, ask your boss if you can pitch some ideas on making your workplace/company more sustainable. If you hint that it could save money, they’ll probably go for it.
Turn the heat settings on your heating and hot water down. You don’t need your water scalding, and if it’s coming out cooler from the boiler, you need less cold water from the cold water tap.
Get wildflower seeds for free from Grow Wild and sprinkle them anywhere, be it your garden or a roadside verge (out of a car window, don’t walk on roadside verges).
Support your local park, library and other services that provide free stuff for the public. Libraries = less books being bought while still supporting writers, and parks = green spaces.
That’s all I can think of right now - I’ll add more if I think of more. Add your tips below!

I’ve seen many of you losing interest or more like beginning to change your stanning experience. When I first began to read things about the industry & stuff, I sort of got this discourage as well. It hurt me to know that my idols’ lives weren’t as real as I had in mind. But now, more woke than I could ever imagine, I realise… After all they’ve gone through, I admire them even more & how lucky, how truly lucky I got when these five ladies entered into my life.
They’re not robots. Yes, they’ve gone through things we would consider extremist & unrealistic but let me tell you something: We fell in love with 5 beautiful humans who grant us access to a little piece of their hearts in every interview, in every performance, in every snap story.
Just because their lives happen to be quite frenetic at times or happen to be quite hard to understand for us fans, doesn’t mean they feel any less, that they are any less normal. Well, in this latter, maybe I’m wrong… You know what? Forgot what I just said, they’re not normal, they’re exceptional.
“Not all heroes wear capes” As cliché as it may sound, it’s nothing else but the truth. The five of them have saved more lives than we could picture. They’ve helped so many souls out there (including mine) to heal whatever wounds we had, wounds crying out desperately for attention. To mend whatever broken piece we had inside, that kept on thickening the cut. They’ve been there every step of that unsteady path. Even if it’s them doing the dumbest video, while watching it you can’t fight that grin. You can’t even try, cause you know damn well won’t resist to those five goofy smiles . Camila was right, some people don’t understand one of the many meanings behind idolisation.
Chanyeol’s self composed song ‘’Heaven’’ lyrics (Analysis)
So, this is my first post & the first analysis in tumblr (since I had a lot in twitter lol).
Anyways, this is based on my own opinion, accept it or not; it’s your decison.
Let me start from the beggining.
Chanyeol once asked a queston ‘’If you could describe Baekhyun with one word, what would it be?’’
He answered ‘’SKY’’.
Since 2014, when Chanyeol started using Instagram, he often started posting pictures of sky as well and he still posts them, till now. Let’s see.
Now, I’d like to show you something from Baekhyun’s account.
This pic. As we all can see, the caption is a cloud, which a certain person (and not only him) uses when posting a pic of SKY. But this is just a selfie and obviously it’s not related to the sky. Baekhyun doesn’t wear any blue thing or etc that might be related to a cloud, yet the caption says it all.
Chanyeol puts different captions while posting sky pics. Such as ‘’Beautiful’’. But also, he puts clouds.
In conclusion, we can guess, since Chanyeol thinks the sky resembles Baekhyun, he was actually the one who posted Baekhyun’s selfie with such caption. Usually Baekhyun rarely posts anything. When he does, he always puts some long captions, thankses fans and so on. But here we see a single cloud which, I do repeat, doesn’t really relate to the post.
Of course, it might be a coincidence but as they say ‘’Coincidence isn’t a coincidence at all’’. Haha, anyways, you may have your own opinion about this posts.
NOW, let’s go the the main topic, since we all, I think, realized the word ‘’Sky’’ for Chanyeol is related to Baekhyun.
‘’Heaven’’ is a song composed by Chanyeol (!! only the lyrics !!)
Now, let’s start analyzing what’s behind the lyrics~
‘’Hello angel, you’re like a painting
You’re all I see when I look to the skies…’’
These two sentences are quite simple, I think. The author (Chanyeol) as we see, talks about his beloved one and tells us that he sees his beloved one when he looks to the skies. The beloved one is related to the sky.
‘’City street lights, even if the lights go out
And the moon disappears, It’s bright because
I have a star that fell from the skies
And it’s you…’’
As we see, he keeps repeating the word ‘’light’’ several times. He compares his beloved one with lights as that one, he claims, is brighter than all the street lights.
Lights, lights lights… Would it be safe to remind Baekhyun’s power is exactly the LIGHT. Not only that, but also the fact that he’s the light, the brightest member of the group, and as EXO claims he keeps them as one.
‘’Even the brightest jewel in heaven
For sure couldn’t be brighter than you
Don’t drift away from me
Baby won’t you stay
I’ll love only you forever..’’
Quite interesting that Chanyeol keeps talking about lights and brightness. Indeed, the beloved one is brighter than any jewel :)
‘’I keep laughing for some reason every night
Even when I close my eyes, I can’t sleep
I spend the entire night with thoughts of you
Your sparlking smile lets me breathe..’’
I really should mention, that besides any romantic relationship, Chanyeol and Baekhyun are besties. People say ‘’The best relationship is when you both can be lovers and best friends at the same time.’’
Chanyeol’s stans and Chanyeol himself admitted it. During the concerts, awarding events and so on, we see they’re all over each other, smiling and laughing at jokes only both of them understand. So I guess, we can bravely relate the first sentence to this, because no matter anything Chanyeol laughs most when he’s with Baekhyun and at anything that Baekhyun does.
The following sentences are very intimate as well. Some people might misunderstand it and say ‘’It can’t be about Baekhyun, because they’re groupmates and they’re always together.’’
Nope, they’re not. All of them have different schedules and they spend quite a little time together. The facts say it; for example in their last interview for VIVI Magazine 2016 Chanyeol said ‘’We chat together till we both forget about time’’ . (almost as sweet as the lyrics to be honest haha).
Your sparkling smile lets me breathe..’’
Well, quite common for Chanyeol because since 2012 he mentioned his ideal type is someone who smiles a lot.
I don’t even know someone who smiles more than Baekhyun. It’s my opinion, maybe yours differs? Haha, anyways, the sparkling smile
The part about wings is SO interesting. Today (10.12.16) Baekhyun said he was an angel in his past life, his wings disappeared when he came to the human’s world, but there’s still left. He also demonstrated. Lets see.
So there we see, only Chanyeol knows what’s Baekhyun actually doing. He even asked Baekhyun to kneel and turn around so that people would see his ‘’wings’’ better from behind.
Baekhyun isn’t really fond of complimenting himself. So I guess, someone actually gave him the idea of him being an angel and having wings behind back.
Did Chanyeol discover those wings himself? As he says in the song, he’s sure, his beloved one ‘’hides wings behind back’’. Hm, who knows.
Chanyeol keeps talking about skies and skies and skies…
‘’The sky gave you everything And this world gave me you I want to keep you by my side So you can’t fly back into the sky Hold you down, keep you with me Hug you…’’
As we keep reading the lyrics, we can be sure that It’s impossible to write such heartwarming lyrics If you’re not in love.
Chanyeol about the lyrics said himself ‘’I’ve written the song as If I was really in love’’
The next sentences that I’m gonna talk about are very veryyyy important, at least to me. In my opinion, they’re the key of the song.
‘’She says, easily, so easily
To not jokingly call her so pretty..’’
Many people keep saying Chanyeol used the pronoun ‘’she’’ as he describes his beloved one, so It can’t be related to Baekhyun.
Let me tell you, it proves absolutely NOTHING. Chanyeol is an artist, he’s an idol who has responsibility over his members, over his fans. He has an image and no matter what he must keep that image. It would be totally thoughtless if he did put ‘’he’’. There would be rumors, articles that media sites post every day, and of course hundreds of people that would be ready to judge him and question his sexuality. Chanyeol is one of the idols that gets criticized even when he does nothing. It would put his career on risk if he did really put not she, but he. We all know Chanyeol apologizes for everything, he cherishes his fans too much to be that free in his actions.
As a proof to my words, I’ll tell you an example of Western artist, a singer Darren Hayes. He, in 2006, got married to his boyfriend.
In past, before admitting to be in a relationsip with a guy, Darren sang songs that included pronouns ‘’she’’ too. Such as ‘’Insatiable’’. (You may check the lyrics yourself to get sure).
I have more examples but lets not waste time.
To think, he was afraid that public would judge him, so he kept his relationship in secret. Even while living in such democratic and free country as the USA.. Considering South Korea, where homosexuality is judged way too hard, its totally normal Chanyeol is trying to ‘’stay safe in shade’’ too.
So, as we see, those pronounces prove nothing.
Anyways, the lyrics
The word that caught my attention was ‘’jokingly’’.
To be honest, if we analyze, it’s impossible to call a girl pretty jokingly. I mean, a guy compliments a girl by calling her pretty and there’s no way for it to be a joke. You call her pretty to make her happy, to make her smile and I don’t think any girl would stop it. Jokingly call a girl pretty would be even offensive because (‘’You’re pretty. Lol no, never mind I’m just kidding’’) ??? Nonsense.
But the author (our Chanyeolie) says
‘’She says to not jokingly call her so pretty..’’
Does not make any sense right? Now let’s change the pronounces.
‘’He says to not jokingly call him so pretty..’’
See? :) Now, it makes sense.
Korean guys, especially idols, have a bit feminine features of face. So usually their fans or friends call them not handsome, but pretty.
I think there’s no need to remind that most of Baekhyun stans (and one of them is me) call him pretty most of the time because he has cute, feminine side. He can be manly, but the cute side, of course, overwhelms.
All EXO members call him cute and pretty, you can rarely see them call Baekhyun ‘’handsome’’. Chanyeol calls him pretty most of all. Me, a fan since 2012, never noticed him to call Baekhyun ‘’handsome’’.
The key is, Baekhyun always stops them when they call him pretty. Even when his fans call him pretty, he asks to not to.
Between guys, it’s such a joke. They tease each other by calling pretty or beautiful. And as we see in this song, Chanyeol teases his beloved one and calls pretty while that one asks to not to. You can relate, I think.
An important thing that should be mentioned I think is also the fact that during the interview for their EX’ACT Album, Baekhyun was asked a question.
‘’Which lyrics do you like best out of all the songs’ lyrics in this album?’’
And as we see out of ALL THE SONGS Baekhyun chose exactly Heaven and exactly those lyrics :)
His explainations looks so weird to me as well lol.
Another thing. Here is ‘’Heaven’’ line distribution (credits to cyhun9461)
As we see, the one who actually sang most is no one else, but Baekhyun.
44.4% of the song lines are Baekhyun’s. Jongdae, Kyungsoo are in vocal line too but their lines are only 27.6% & 29.5%.
Even Chanyeol, who actually composed the song, has 36.8%.
Thank you, if you have read this. I did put a lot of efforts in this article and I hope you all will like it. As I said before, the article is based on my own opinion, which might be different from yours. So yeah, thanks again :)

You were in Florida, and boy, did it feel good to be back.
It never mattered what kind of mood you were in when you got on the plane; the second you touched down in Florida, nothing but happiness radiated throughout your body. You never knew the reason why, it was kind of just the place that Florida was.
Shawn seemed to love Florida, too. He was care-free, happy, and not to mention, he took his shirt off…a lot.
Bonus points for you.
Shawn slipped his hand into yours, leading you through the airport terminals and to baggage claim. However, the second you two got to baggage claim, the few body guard’s and airport security stood there, holding back tons of screaming fangirls.
so, in the summer of 05 is when most people think it started because fob and mcr played warped together, but, they had also played the year before and thats when i think it started. as many know, pete single handedly wrote the entirety of from under the cork tree, which was released may 3rd of 2005, which means he had been writing some of it the previous summer. most of the album is quite cheery, depicting the emotions of someone who is battling some darker force within themselves, but is also experiencing a happiness from someone else they dont think they deserve or should have (short version: an emo is in love). also, theres the parallel between dance dance and favorite record- dance dance depicts a literal and emotional dance, and then in favorite record you have “i cant remember just how to forget the way we danced”. so, based on research and educated opinion, i believe that the petekey fling started in 04.
then, the next summer both bands were again picked for warped, which only intnsified the relationship. after weeks of spending excessive time with each other and attending each others shows, the media took notice. in an interview that summer, when asked about it he responded “me and pete wentz arent dating. we are both heterosexual males… sort of… maybe… umm… next!”. on may 16, 2005 mikey was spotted at a fueled by ramen show watching fob at house of blues wearing a white jacket that allegedly belonged to pete. a few days later, pete posted a list on live journal of things that get him hot and bothered. on taht list were a.having a crush on a person i speak to nearly every day and b.white denim jackets….
on tuesday, june 28, 2005, pete posted the following on livejournal: “Amazing New Mexico sunset. im hanging on a bridge with my friend mikey from my chem. its all orange and pink above us. we went to another water park again. i love high fives again. totally back in love.” on july fourth he posted an entry that ended with “hot and miserable but totally back in love”. on july 15 he posted “Though I am over hearing your thoughts on haircuts and pants. I’m over us trying to be perfect tens for your little eyes. We don’t care what you think of us. Listen to a song and time your heartbeat. Let it be okay to fall asleep slow tonight. Think about a good friend. Think about god. Think about death. Think about someone elses hand clumsily on your belt in the dark. Think it will be okay. No more rants. No more poetry. Not tonight. True love for the believers”. on july 17 he posted “wrote you a goodbye note (you just wrote me off) on your arm when you passed out. bestfriends, exfriends- better off as lovers not the other way around. racing through the city in the back of yellow checkered cars. the takeoffs are the worst but the skin from your shoulder to your ear makes it all worth it. and im sorry the way my moods flicker on and off like old light on your porch, but i know you wouldn’t have it any other way. sneaking in your window instead of out. the way you hold a cigarette cause you don’t know what to do with your hands when we are sitting this close. the way the waists of pants feel better at the ankles. the way you always were my best excuse for calling in sick on everyone else. i miss you”. which later became the song bang the doldrums, which was origionally titled summer of like (pete mentioned this in a rolling stones interview), which is now what fans call the relationship between pete and mikey in 05.
during that summer, fans claimed that mikey and pete didnt want to be photographed together, which is kind of suspicious…. but there are a few circulating the internet, and quite a few of mikey wearing clandestine (petes clothing line). at this time it was also common for fob and mcr to trade band members, mikey would play bass for fob so pete could take his mic into the crowd. pete also frequently watched mikey play with the stupidest smile on his face….
there are also fan reports of them being seen together. “
at my warped date i got there early in the morning and hung out by the fob bus because i wanted to get a pic with patrick and around 10 am the door opened and a very tired looking mikey stepped off with pete right behind him and they appeared to be holding hands until they saw the people around and they both refused to have their pictures taken together
”. and “during Fall Out Boy’s set (they were one of the closing bands that night) they dedicated one of the songs to Mikey, who was watching from the side of the stage. Pete said, “This song is about revenge. Right, Mikey? Revenge!” Mikey smiled and nodded, and during “Grand Theft Autumn/Where is Your Boy” he mouthed along to all the words.”
pete also posted at one point “i wish you were my bass, not just my friend”. on august 19 he posted “
Warped tour was fun. Since being home I remembered that showering and sleeping are fun too. My real feelings on the sunburst bass. I loved that thing. But then it started cheating on me with mikey way. I had to hit it. Its not my fault- spousal abuse is an ugly thing. I’m in therapy that includes playing lots of warcraft online. Writing messages on your arm for someone to see at a show is the new away message - stealing peoples real diary is the new livejournal”.
on september 4, pete posted “on the getaway car, the rush of blood to the head: it’s strange to find myself again back at the feelings of the blue cover after going through the red and the gold. its kind of always like that. i am sorry if i am not making any sense. but everybody likes to take chances and make bets. i always put my money on the longshots. and no matter where my head was in the world i always dreamed of waking up next to the biggest brown eyes i have ever seen/’meandyouunderneaththehoneymoon’. “go back to what it meant back then”: and you imagine yourself moving deep into the summer and disappearing, and for me it was always with you. and then things got crazy. you stopped calling me back. i stopped trying to call but not in my head. and then you got malicious but i’m guessing only because you learned from the best- take back your taste and all. i never thought it would be just me again. but that’s okay. we’re gonna hole up and wait it out. i feel like i can see for the first time, like i was born just in the last minute. wake me up. baby boy, you’re gonna be okay. hearts between our knees sticking to the summer sheets. are you catching my drift…. its gonna be alright. your love would be hell but its just not hot enough baby.” (Note… baby BOY)
after petes nudes were leaked, hey chris wrote him a public letter which contained the following: “you know the friends i have and you know how we feel about loyalty. you know who im talking about and you know they’re not happy either.” and shortly after chris posted pic of him and mikey saying he’d “found new love”
the summer of 06, peter once again had some interesting things to say. on july 7 he posted “im so sorry, but not really. (‘straighten up and die right’) i said i want to be rebuilt like a frank lloyd wright only without all of the water damage. or painted over like a monet only less blurry. she said “no, youre something different”. like what? “something better”. it gave me the rush of warm blood like you see in cartoon dogs right before their eyes pop out and all of the bells go off. my head is spinning like a car off of an icy guardrail. show me what you are made of. your eyes were always rolling but youd tilt your head so they were somehow always still stuck on me (have your cake and eat it too). i feel safe but not like a bet more like the way mothers feel when the lock the car doors in bad neighborhoods. i am blue waves across the red rootlike veins in the bodies drawn flat in medical books. i wonder at the way that someone can write thousands and thousands of pages about my insides. when i met you i gave you a name- not your own- but in my head so i wouldnt ever mix you up with anyone so ordinary- i cant tell you- but to me it meant salvation. you only wanted reaction. but i cant be bothered. not anymore. ill see you in the spring. first pew on the left. wear your white veil and dont forget the words. warped tour. sun drenched days. bestfriends. new roads. so long salvation. dont worry your pretty little heads. i am sleeping safe tonight.” then the next day, on the 8th, he posted “the fraternal order of the handsome boy. ive been watching you from afar. my breath on the inside window as you walk in from the carcandy caned lies in red and white against clashing patterns bending in and out of understanding. ”youre the stranger ive been dreaming of”, stranger than any ive ever known. love through a telescopic lens. when the air is clear i can see how perfect you are for me. late at night when the city sleeps i cast a spell on you to make you think of me the very same way i think of you. i only love how the words feel in my head when i write them. fireworks over the valley. how can i tell you i gut people for a living. that everything you say is likely to end up as evidence when i rewrite history. over and over again. how everything you do reminds me of something else, someone else. how i get paid to be humble and arrogant at the same time,to be chased and never caught. that i just want to stay up late and wake up early to talk to you. that i want to show you all of my jealousy and insecurity and have you not care. youre like a light switch and i just want to turn you on and watch them all shrink away. the words come out of my fingertips on impulse. it is instinct. my head cant keep up. i envy the comatose. i admire the bedridden. i am addicted to the way i feel when i think of you. ”im blowing smoke rings around the moon….” i wish i was the exact opposite of how the world knows me.”
then, there is infinity on high, which is basically completely about mikey (especially bang the doldrums, because it was born on live journal right after that summer of like…) and ab/ap, due to the constant reiteration of a past love, my favorite being fourth of july with “you are my favorite what if, you are my best i’ll never know”
also othe fact that neither of them can hold a true relationship with women without it ending badly. perhaps because there is someone out there that they are simply destined to be with….
so yeah. pete wentz writes a lot of his music about mikey way.
Before I knew that we could only use S4S to clone and recolor one set of counters I cloned this one. It doesn’t come with a cabinet in game, so it’s only counters and islands.
There are 30 total recolors, 12 rich, 12 soft, and 6 neutral for both the counters and islands (so I guess that’s really 60 total :0)
I uploaded them to a folder so you can choose which files you want: rich, soft, neutral, or download them all :) Be sure to download both the counter file and the island file for whichever set you want!
I didn’t take pics of all the islands but they match the counters perfectly. I wanted to do different counter tops but S4S won’t let me, I’m guessing b/c there’s only one counter top for the 3 original counters. So all the counter tops are white with a nice chrome trim.
i was asked by @misfitreindeer to make a post about skeletons and debunk a lot of typical transphobic myths about how, y’know, females look like X and males look like Y and that everything works in 100% black in white but it doesn’t actually
and it’s important to know that while i’m an anthropology student, my main focus has been on forensic anthropology so we’re not talking about cavemen here. we’re talking about anatomically modern humans. (although i do know a little about cavemen because my overall degree will be in anthropology)
i’ve taken most of my classes focusing on the actual bones, i’ve worked with actual human bones, a lot of which were people who had been murdered, some which were still under investigation. i’m entering my 2nd term of my junior year as i’m making this post and the only forensic anthro/anthro classes i have left to take are ones that aren’t my field (cultural/linguistic anthropology, museum curation, working on dig sites with archaeology students) and a shitload of chemistry.
so while yes i don’t have my degree yet i’m studying this right now, i’m learning the newest available information at my university, and i’m asking a lot of questions because i’m so fascinated by this field
so i’m going to just give you a gigantic infodump of what i know. i’ll also put up pics of bones, not graphic scary things i promise.
Alright so regarding the Jackson thing, I’d like to say my piece. Personally, I’ve stanned Jackson for a while now and I know this not the first time he’s made a problematic ass mistake.
He pulled this bullshit a while back..
Apparently this was some sort of edited pic of him done by a fan. But, for some reason he posted it to his Instagram… He apologized for it later though.
I accepted this apology because he seemed sincere. But then, he did it again...
I just found out about this one and man… No words.
So, the reason why I included these two incidents is to tie them into this dread lock thing he did recently.
I truly do wonder what changed with him. Like the whole reason he apologized for the first blackface pic was because he saw how much it offended others. People educated him in the comments and he realized what he did was wrong (or so we thought, because he ended up doing blackface again).
So now, the current shit I woke up to this morning…
Pepsi, of all company’s, of course it was Pepsi… *eye roll*
So, people of course criticized him when he posted this on his Instagram. And people also came to his defense. As expected, some pulled excuses from their ass saying how “other kpop idols do this all the time!”. And, “He probably didn’t have any control over the hairstyle, it was most likely picked out by the company.”
I was inclined to believe this too, but then…
As you can see above (and probably have already seen all around the
internet) he said that this hair style was his decision. So, claiming
that it “wasn’t his fault” is out the window.
Real quick, I’m gonna tell you guys my opinion on non-black people wearing black hairstyle’s. I don’t have any real problem with it, unless they act like they created it. If you’re trying to claim something cultural that is obviously not yours and/or you’re purposeless mocking it, then yea.. it counts as cultural appropriation. Personally, I think dreads and braids look tacky af on these idols lol. But, others have a different opinion on the matter and believe that just wearing these hairstyles is cultural appropriation. And I respect your opinion, even if I don’t agree with it entirely, I’m not gonna be an asshole and bash you just because I may not agree/understand your pov.
My real issue is with his statements. He is very unapologetic about it and totally dismisses his own fans opinions as “hate”. People are out here trying to educate and let him know that what he did offended them/others. And he doesn’t seem to care as he says, “you are on the wrong page.” His “sorry, not sorry” attitude is very shocking to me. And it’s sad to see him using this beloved excuse of “others do it all the time, so why can’t I?.”. As if people don’t dislike when other kpop idols cultural appropriate. I really don’t know what rock him and some of ya’ll are living under cause.. And wasn’t it just last month his fellow member, Jaebum wore the same hairstyle? I sure saw people bashing him. But the difference between him and Jaebum’s situation is that, JB doesn’t have a huge internet presence like Jackson does. I mean the man is barely on Instagram. Also, Jaebum didn’t comment on the hairstyle, making it seem like he probably didn’t get any real direct criticism. And this is the main reason why I’m having a issue with Jackson now. His comments on it are very insensitive.
He’s not looking at the whole picture here and brushing this off as if it’s nothing. And he tries to sugar coat it by saying that, “I have love and respect for all RACE”. That must include all races, except for black people. Because, right now he’s not showing that “love and respect” for his black fans who are letting him know that what he did/said was offensive and inconsiderate. He’s just looking at it as “hate”, just like these “stans” who like to jump on the bandwagon of defending their fav to the death.
The second tweet rubs me the wrong way especially because, again he’s sugar coating and saying all these seemingly nice things. But, at the same time he’s ignoring what people are trying to tell him. And saying, “this is a complete misunderstanding” is just his way of debunking what people are trying to explain to him.
That’s how ignorance works, some people are just too stubborn and believe that their opinion is the only one that matters. Blinded by their own ideologies, refusing to see it in another light, in another persons shoes. I bet my ass he wouldn’t appreciate non-asian (or non-Chinese people in general) wearing a Cheongsam.
I shouldn’t be surprised though. After all he hangs out with this dude…
For those of you who don’t know him, he’s kind of a male version of a groupie. You can find him hanging around the rapper Tyler, The Creator. Also, this dude Ben allegedly once said that, “Kpop isn’t for black people.”
But then again, he stays flip flopping so it’s best to chalk him him up as an ignorant mess.
LIke wtf ??
Anyways, this post is getting too damn long.
In conclusion, Jackson is currently cancelled in my book. Unless he issues an apology (which I’ll be surprised if he does), I’ll judge on my own behalf if I feel it’s sincere or not. But, in the mean time ya’ll can have fun coming at each other and fighting opinions with more opinions. As if getting mad at others for being mad about something that doesn’t concern you is gonna do anything except make you feel “entitled” in some way…
Hello everyone! A week or so ago I received a message here on Tumblr from a person who claimed to know information about a certain model and her involvement in bearding/secret gay relationships. After exchanging some emails, this person shared all of their information with me but asked that I used code names so that no one gets in trouble (as they believe much of this could be traced back to them or others mentioned). If you have any questions about code names please feel free to message me privately and I will be happy to share a little more with those who ask nicely. I would just like to be respectful of this person’s wishes.
This info concerns a model we all know (Model 1) and her past relationship with another model we all know even better (Model 2). It was requested that I simply copy and paste the information in full. The person who sent me the info didn’t disclose their identity so I’m unsure how trustworthy they are. However, my impression was that the info wasn’t outrageous enough to change anything we don’t already know so I am leaning towards trusting this person. It is up to you to make up your own mind.
“You must know something about me: i have a very very good & detailed memory (since i was a child) i always remember what people don’t, + very specific dates & conversations + the little things.My doctor says that it’s certainly unusual but it does not completely fit as idetic memory per say (i’m considered smart+ but not a genius).I tell you this because it’s very important in this story, it will help you understand why i remember so many details and things :) (even though i had to check a few things up with my 2 friends before writing this to you, just to be 100% sure)
Before i tell you this story, i want to make something very clear: i do not know Model 2, i’ve never met her.i’ve met Model 1 only once, in early 2013 in Paris, it was before she started to “date” that Famous Actor. Both girls are not from my “models generation” (i’m 38, French, i worked as a model from 96 to 2000, no big covers but some very high profile fashion shows in haute couture & prêt-à-porter in Paris & Milan), it was still the golden age, with all of the worldwide famous supermodels around). Anyway, this is important because of someone i have worked with a few times back in the day, who now is a well known Actress (& a good one), we are not friends, we haven’t seen each other in a few years, but we still have 2 good mutual and trustworthy friends: i’ll explain later). i won’t give you photographs of our past works together, even if i quit modeling a long time ago, i don’t want to be identified, i hope you’ll understand.On the other hand, i’m pretty sure if some specific people read this story, eventually they’ll find out who my 2 friends are (but they’re both ok with this, they don’t really care). Ok, so my good friend is under 35, also French, she recently retired as a model, she was never famous but she has had a few high profile campaign in Europe, but was never a VS model.(i don’t want to give more details about her). She’s bi, (i’m a lesbian by the way), and we’re both the lipstick kind. The only female model she’s dated was Model 1, it didn’t last (just for a few weeks), it was a rebound, for both of them.She introduced her to me in Paris in early 2013. we had diner together (with a few other people).i didn’t know who she was, i remember thinking “her face looks familiar” i thought she was gorgeous, natural, surprising not too shallow, nice & kind of shy.During diner my friend mentioned that Model 1 was walking for Victoria’s Secret, and it hit me “of course, ok now i know where i saw you before, got it” Before meeting with her, my friend had told me on the phone, that Model 1 had recently ended a long & complicated relationship with another model, Basically, the break up was mutual but they remained good friends.My friend didn’t name the other model or said anything specific about her (but it was a “her” for sure).i remember asking her “are you ok with her still being so close to her ex ? ” she answered: “i don’t care, after what she said about their relationship, it’s ok” Anyway, a couple of weeks after that diner, my friend called and said it was over..it was never serious, just a fling, so no big deal. A few months later, i was checking a french tabloid magazine at my doctor’s office, and saw this article about that Famous Actor’s apparently new girlfriend and i clearly recognized Model1.I called my friend right after, i remember asking her: “ what the hell ?? that’s Model 1 with Famous Actor, right ? she said "yes, i saw the pics yesterday too, a bit of a shock to be honest, Z & Y (2 friends who were with us at that diner) also called about it” i asked: “so she’s bi ? sounds weird to me”(after the diner i was pretty sure she wasn’t bi, but maybe i had understood it wrong, you never know (and to be honest my female gaydar is not always perfect ;)she had a little laugh: “you’re kidding ?? she’s as straight as jodie foster” (her exact words, i swear, it made me laugh)“ok, so….. bearding contract ?” i askedshe answered: “looks like it to me,i think there’s no way she’d sleep with a guy, even for publicity” i have to explain that beardings contracts were already very much known & used during “my time”, it was also a good boost for a model’s career…So it didn’t shock me when she agreed it was highly probably that, and it didn’t shock me about Famous Actor either: there were already very big rumors about him back when i was modeling, so… part 2:Some time ago, we talked about it again (we were with a longtime friend of ours: (let’s call him B), who is a quite well known in Paris, he works on many fashion week shows, he’s gay and super cute (he dated a famous Male Singer in the late 90s/ it still makes us laugh because back then, we’d tell our friends that the Famous Singer was gay, but no one’d believe us !! (who’s laughing now ;) All of a sudden, B asked my friend if she was still in contact with Model 1, she said “no"we both asked him :"why? have you seen her recently, how’s she doing ?"he said "oh, yes, i worked with her a few months ago; she’s doing fine” and that was it…it was strange because he always has something else to say about people (whether it’s nice, bad or funny, always an anecdote,especially with famous people in the fashion industry) We both asked him “and ?? that’s it ?? does she have a new boyfriend ? (winking at him)he laughed, and he hesitated, and after a few seconds said: "well, let me tell you something ladies, between us, she must have been asked to shut up recently” My friend & i asked him what he was talking about, B said “well, last time i worked with her, i asked her how things were going between her & her friend, because of what she had said at X’s birthday diner party (i won’t use the real initials for privacy) we were both at, the year before” he continued: “because she had been acting strangely that night & talking about some stuff"he said: "her reaction was very weird, she tried to convince me that she was sick & because she had had a few drinks that evening, her medication had made her say crazy things that weren’t real” i told him “well maybe it was about Famous Actor ? did she reveal stuff about the beard thing” (it made sense to me) & my friend agreed.he replied with a little smile: “oh no no, she wasn’t talking about Famous Actor that evening”… To explain: A bit more than a year earlier (which is about 2 & a half years ago), they were both at X’s birthday diner party in Paris (a french designer, not very famous to people outside the industry, but quite known, also someone my friend and i had worked with in the past: + our friend (B) is good friends with)he said: “ At some point in the evening, she was clearly tipsy & was chatty in a weird way about someone"i told him "so what ? Did she say mean stuff about someone ?"he said "no, more like she wanted to talk about something, without directly talking about it, because she couldn’t or somethnig like that”.My friend and i looked at each other, with the “what?” look on our faces “what are you talking about ? we don’t understand” He added: “at the end of this diner party, just a few of us stayed (that’s where the former model well known Actress comes back), he said "M was there by the way (the actress, i won’t use her real initials either), (he mentioned her to us, because he knows i like her and that i have worked with her a few times back in the day) Apparently there were 7-8 people, a few of them (including the Actress) were on their phones while chatting, and started to make comments about Famous Actor’s new "girlfriend”…Model 1 had left the party earlier (i must precise). He continues: “ We were talking about how f***ing pathetic & crazy the whole bearding situation had become, we couldn’t believe that after all this time,tabloids were still selling that shit to the public…”, M said “yep,but a straight relationship sells more & studios would lose a lot of money if people knew about some very closeted stars…the more famous,the higher is the risk for them to lose their career over it”…“but it brings good paychecks to a few models, so.. you know , win-win” He continued: “someone added (another person): "yep, look at Model 1, it works for her"M said "i know right ?” then he said M added “and what was wrong with her tonight ?”, the other person answered “apparently she knows stuff and she’s struggling not to talk about it, because it’s huge”..that person continues “i tried to make her talk,but it didn’t work, then she left” Then B said to my friend & i : “Most of all thought that night that it was about another famous closeted actor she knew about, but i found out a few weeks later that it was in fact about a very famous closeted singer she has direct connexion with” we said “are you sure ?? for real ??"he confirmed it, but he didn’t say male or female though.we asked him a few times, we really begged him to tell us.. but he just said "no ladies, not this time, this is way too hush hush for now, i’ll tell you in a few years, if it’s not out yet..ok ?” That’s the end of my story. The reason why i talk about it only now: i didn’t really give it much thought after that conversation, not knowing who that was anyway (or not knowing about the connexion), it wouldn’t change my life, i like gossip like anyone, but i’m not the detective type, i didn’t really care to be honest; i just felt bad for that person and for Famous Actor for being closeted, wondering if they were really happy that way.+ i had to take care of other things in my life, that were way more important.. BUT, a few weeks ago, the 14 years old daughter of a friend of mine and her best friend were having a loud argument in the next room, while we were having diner.My friend’s wife asked the girls what the problem was : the friend said “she thinks the kaylors are right and i think she’s an idiot to believe it"We laughed because none of us had any idea what they were talking about, then my friend’s daughter explained briefly the "kaylor thing” to us….i laughed but i was intrigued (my gay curiosity was picked i guess), so after diner, i asked her to show me the proofs she had..She showed me a bunch of stuff on tumblr, including the detailed time line while explaining things to me at the same time, she showed me a few interviews and videos…she was very excited.i’ll admitt i was intrigued.To be honest i vaguely remembered Model 2 from her VS years, but nothing more, and i didn’t know much about Female Singer (except for her many boyfriends reputation, her 2-3 big hit songs and her few cat videos on IG that i find funny (loving cats as well), and i definitely didn’t know about the gay or beard rumors. But when she also showed me the various elements about Model 1 & Model 2 , within 10 minutes pieces of the puzzle started to fit together, and i thought about meeting Model 1 that evening, and of course about everything my 2 friends had said….i asked her to show me about the time line, to see it the dates could fit, and they did, + she also showed me the little saab video of them together, and my gaydar really buzzed (i showed it to my girlfriend, and her gaydar also buzzed)i was mind blown, i couldn’t believe it, i laughed, thinking “holy shit, if the other thing’s real too, now i get it why he didn’t tell us”. i didn’t say anything to my friend’s daughter though….i told her i believed there were indeed very interesting elements, but that she couldn’t be sure until it was confirmed (i know i feel bad, but what was i supposed to tell her ??) The day after, i called my friend,and asked her if Model 1’s ex back then was Model 2…she said she didn’t want to talk about it, that it was the past, and that she didn’t care about that anymore…i didn’t insist, but the way she said it, i’m pretty sure (knowing her for so long) that it was her way to somehow confirm it… As a conclusion, i do believe that you Kaylors are probably right,(knowing Model 1 & Model 2’s “close friendship” was right, why not the rest ?) but i have no direct proof that Model 2 & Female Singer are actually dating. All i know is things that can not be proven directly unless my friends & i are called in to testify.i hope i won’t get sued over this :( Anyway, i wanted to share this with you because after all the hard work and research some of you apprently did, i felt that at least you deserved to know what i know :) “
As the person mentioned at the end, they were really quite impressed with us and the amount of
diligent research on Kaylor and other fake relationships we have collectively gathered.
Again, feel free to message me with any questions and take this all with a grain of salt for now. I am only a vessel for the info this person was willing to share.
Summary: Such a cold prince deserved the best and that meant you
Warnings: plus sized reader, pompous Prince Adam
Not my pic **
Beautiful was a relative term to his mother. As he grew up, he realized that the things worth possessing in life were the most beautiful. When his father passed- how tragic really- Adam bathed in the money he inherited. Literally, at least once a month he had the servants run him a bath made of the most expensive champagne there was in the cellar.
Money led to fame which gave to desire. Adam could, and did, have anyone he wanted. He loved a good chase, knowing it would take only seconds to give into his charm. While he didn’t like it, he would take no for an answer because yes, he had some morals thank you every much. No one fought him though, not really, there wasn’t a need because he was royalty and he deserved everything.
When you were hired on at the castle, you were warned of the prince’s behavior by the lower ranking servants but passed it off as nothing more than hazing. It was when you met him, however, that you realized he was the pompous prat everyone claimed. You were his handmaiden, which defaulted you to seeing his chipper face every morning and you hated it. Nevertheless, you smiled each day you saw him not wanting to get on his bad side. You found after several formal occasions, that he was not that bad, but he was still an ass.
“Y/N?” He sighed one day, reclining in his throne as he watched (he never engaged) the townspeople pay their taxes.
“Yes my prince?” You were at his side immediately ready to serve his every little desire.
“Do you think I’m fair?” Prince Adam glanced up at you, then down to his nails, chipping at the golden paint.
"Yes, Y/N, that’s what I said.” He tossed you a look that he reserved for every one.
“There are many different connotations to fair, my lord.”
With a frustrated groan, he readjusted himself in his throne. “Yes I’m aware of that! I had an expensive education my dear. “
“Just for that I’ll be honest, no.”
Adam nodded, his brow furrowed. “It’s the wig isn’t it?”
With a huff, you bowed to him, “If that is all my lord, I have clothes to press for tonight.”
Adam nodded waving you off, “Oh Y/N!” He jumped from his throne, joining your side. “Speaking of tonight, I was hoping you’d come, you haven’t been to a single ball, it’s what all the servants look forward to.”
"I’ve all but ordered you mon Cherie, so I guess I’ll just have to. If you don’t come tonight I’ll revoke your library privileges.” If he was being honest with himself he was bluffing, he would never hurt you like that but he was never one to talk about feelings.
He couldn’t contain his smirk as you grumbled an “as you wish” before retreating to the West Wing.
You realized, later on that night , why the servants loved his parties so much: Adam was no longer your responsibility. You could, and did, whatever you desired. Tonight, that meant wearing something other than your typical uniform. The gown was the finest thing you owned for no reason other than Adam made it so.
It was green, a dark emerald that stood out against the sea of pastels before the prince. As he sat on his elevated throne, he found you quickly and eagerly wasted no time to find you. His heels clicked on the marble flooring as he danced his way through the crowd to find your hand. “Why don’t you dance?”
“And make a fool of myself? No thank you.”
"A fool? Have you seen me right now?” Prince Adam tugged on his wig. “I assure you, you do not look foolish.” His blue eyes lusted over with each pass over your amble blossom on display.
Rolling your eyes, you hid behind your fan. “I’m fine here, I’ll probably retire early if it pleases the master.”
Adam clicked his tongue. “What would please me is if you would dance with me. Do you know how many people would kill to be you right now?” And there it was, the deep seeded selfishness.
“Then go ask one of them my lord.” You hissed, grabbing your skirts and leaving the ballroom, running to your quarters where the other servants laid up with happy eyes that slowly turned into defeat as you rushed to change.
"Mon Cherie?” Lumiere asked approaching the door to your chamber.
You said nothing, sniffling into the mirror. If you dared to speak your voice would cave and then you’d be fucked because people would know that you, the plump hand maiden was foolish enough to love the prince. So you stayed quiet and ripped off the dress, tearing apart that god awful corset because you would never feel good in that and left it to lay there as you put on your servants clothes.
Tying your apron on, you emerged to find a concerned Lumiere. “Mi lady?”He prompted once more.
“Forget it, all of you. Whatever sweet boy you knew is dead and gone, so leave me be to prepare his bedroom because I certainly will not be the one joining him tonight. But you all can deal with his drunk ass, he gets particularly awful then.”
Hours later, Adam strolled into his bedroom, rubbing at the back of his neck, rolling it out to relieve the stress and impending regret from that delightful blonde from Finland. Sighing, he dipped back onto his bed kicking his shoes off and removing the wig from his head. “Y/N!” He yelled crossing his arms behind his head.
Minutes later, Mrs. Potts emerged with a glad of water. “She’s gone to bed sire.”
Pouting childishly, he crossed his arms looking up at the closest woman to a mother he had. “But she always waits for me, she always talks to me about my day and tells me cute stories about her and Chip.”
“I know that my prince, but there is only so much a heart can take.”
“I think I’m enough evidence for that!” He screamed tearing his coat off and ripping his shirt open. Adam ran to her quarters, pounding on the door, “Don’t you dare shut me out when you know how I feel. Not you.”
Silence, followed by sniffles gave way to his princess with red, swollen eyes. “I don’t deserve you.”
"Really?” Adam chuckled pulling her closer to his chest. “You think that lowly of yourself and by association me?” Before she could reply, he held her face in his hands kissing her boldly, “Because I will spend the rest of my life convincing us both otherwise.”
first and foremost, please listen to pretty boy to commemorate this anniversary. you don’t need a reason to listen to it but if you needed one, go listen now :D
this is my favourite taekai day, or at least one of super super faves [mma 2013 comes really close ❤️]
these beautiful best friends, working together is something they always said they wished to do. they killed the stage. they’re really compatible, having trained together and understanding each other’s styles. their chemistry is fantastic!
taemin also happened to forget what a shirt was that day. seriously, baby was wilding which means death for us 😂.
let’s also appreciate how beautiful they look, on their own and together as well. they’re stunning 😍.
this was an unfortunate day for junmyeon too. otl, taekai only see each other, this is a proven fact, i’m sorry junmyeon-ah.
let’s talk about how naturally their arms come around each other. jongin’s arm belongs around taemin’s shoulder and taem’s arm belongs around nini’s waist. it comes to them with the ease of time and familiarity. it’s not something they have to think about at all.
now let’s talk about their joined hands and why it’s even more beautiful than it looks at a glance.
the song was h.o.t.’s hope and the lyrics at the part where they walked together with their clasped hands were:
let’s all join our hands and look at the sky
picture the world we will be making together in the sky
it’s radiant and so beautiful
let’s all make it together with our joined hands
<< let’s all join our hands and look at the sky
picture the world we will be making together in the sky
it’s radiant and so beautiful
let’s all make it together with our joined hands>>
taekai held hands to this ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
there’s a reason why hope never gets old and idc what people say, i hope sm never changes it as the ending song for smtown lives 😭 those beautiful inspiring lyrics + taekai paying attention to them [raising their clasped hands] and looking happy and beautiful in each other’s arms makes me feel like sobbing. seriously taekai were so beautiful and radiant that night i just-
for me, one of the reason why they were practically glowing could be bc of their collab stage. it’s no secret taemin always wanted to work with jongin [he still does] and vice versa [nini also still wants to] and this collab stage was a dream come true for them. imagine achieving your dreams with your best friend. they trained together and dreamed together and learned from each other and were never jealous of each other’s success. i don’t doubt they talked about working together, being on stage together on those nights they spent sleeping on the practice room floor together 😭😭😭
in addition to this, they were practicing together for their stage beforehand and spent more time together than usual, [plus they were gonna have/had other sched together to promote their collab+taem’s solo] that gave them more time together. debut obviously made it harder for them to spend time together with both shinee and exo being so busy [heh, aside from their rendezvous that we know of] this was probably the most time they got to spend together in a while so they were feeling closer to each other.
their happiness is really magnified x 100 when they’re with each other, it’s not something you can miss. they were practically radiating ㅠㅠ
i thought they were really going to kiss, they really look like a couple ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
taem may like scaring the shit out of nini but i’d say our bear got his revenge
the way taemin looked at jongin doesn’t need an explanation. his heart is in his eyes when he looks at nini and we can all see what’s there ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
oh idk, you know, just taemin feeling up taemin’s knees as they take a bow. you get it taem
there was something extra tender about taekai that day.
idk maybe it’s bc they spent more time together or they were thrilled by their collab stage or it was taekai being taekai or most likely all that and more but there was something special about 140815 and it really shows. i don’t claim this is 100% what happened as i’m not either of them and wasn’t there, but it’s how it seemed to me. 140815 was a special day ❤️
i hope they’ll always make each other this happy. happy 140815 3rd anniversary, happy 3rd debut anniversary to our baby and i love taekai
Let’s have a talk about a gross Pro-C again: HeartProgress
It came to my attention some days ago that there is an Instagram account as well as a google+ group ran by someone named “Tom”. Trying to hide himself besides LGBT agenda and calling himself a “pedosexual” and advocating for “no age of consent”…Looking through his Instagram I found disturbing images of little girls and him defending past offenders who “died because of there sexuality” Oh boohoohoo!!….
Give me a break.
Not too long ago id made a call for help on the now pretty much dead Omnipolitics. Now I reach out to you guys being my fellow MAPs or the antis that helped last time. We can’t let people like this spreading this harmful and very false information. Not only does he claim MAPs want the same rights as the LGBT community does (I am a Pansexual but count my MAP attractions as separate from the LGBT banner) in wanting to be with the people they wanna be with which in our case cannot be possible and Im so happy and relieved its against the law in developed countries. But he claims that children can love an adult or an older teen the same way an older child would love an older child…I mean this guy clearly lives in fairy tale land. He just wants to rape kids, that is it. No “kids can love the same”, “kids deserve sexual freedom”.
A kid can’t even tie their shoes properly but you wanna “give them the right” to “consent”…lmao?
Currently this is probably a pseudonym and honestly I do not recommend taking a look into his instagram or his google+ for your sake of mind. Yet I also ask those that are willing to please spread the word and report this guy down. He is spreading harmful messages and honestly I don’t know if he’s a troll or not. Im hoping for his sake he is one because someone has to be bat-shit crazy as to believe a child can consent. It’s pretty clear this guy is attracted to little girls due to his insta posts.
Here is a post that he wrote about ..the marriages in Afghanistan. I mean is this even real? I need sources and second of all he’s acting like that 3 yo can even talk properly. “Love is love”, what does a child know about your definition of love. Love to them is their feelings for mommy and/or daddy. Or a family relative. Not a dirty and gross fantasy of a definition. As you can also see he has the #LGBTQP…honestly guys don’t let him use that. Personally please just kill it off idk do ya thing. Finally the #NoAoc. No age of consent….
^ His insta…covered the other stuff for SFW sake… But gosh..that pic is so disturbing like that could be a dad and his kid. Also is that a kitten and dog??? Like wtf is he trying to say here?
Also these are just some of his followers..Wonder what they’re up to. Don’t you? Could be people believing lies could be Pro-Cs. Haven’t looked much into it. Please look around, see if you find anyone else. Get information on this guy.
And finally his weirdo banner using LGBT symbols and again the #Loveisageless like…you mean between two kids near the same age, two teens, young adults, adults and old people??? Not a grown ass teen, young adult+ with a child right? I mean how does that even sound in your mind.
Took a lot of effort to not just give up on this post tbh because I cannot comprehend human stupidity. Please, please, please take this guy off of the radar! People are clearly listening to the guy and he seems to be believing his own lies. If someone could talk to him reasonably and try to sway him around to prevent him from hurting a child that would be perfect, if he won’t listen then please, take him down! Do as you must! He posts gross things about little children arghhhhhhh. What is this NAMBbLA? like wth…ugh
@my maps, please try tot all to the guy or just report the hell out of I know i tried both and ended up just hitting report. Try to make him see at least clearly. Truthfully.
@the antis or anyone willing to help, honestly raise attention, master post this. Be wary and be alert. Look through his followers, look through his pages (only for those willing to not see certain pictures, please at your mental stability) and try to see what you can get. Get him mad or something. Anything!
Update: It also turns out the guy has a tumblr…wow what a loser. I need you guys to focus on every single one of his accounts.
What the ever loving fuck is wrong with you people?
You people You Antis, NST, Truthers, Haters, wtfer name you want to be called or are called. You people. You know I’m talking to you @noshippingallowed @contemplatingoutlander @goldenoutlander @adhara112 @aliceinoutlanerland (oops you forgot the d in outlander. get a d.) @whylimewhyanything (put the lime in the coconut) @whoreallyknowswho (it’s whom! whom! unless you just forgot to finish your sentence) @prodigiousreblogger @bestof60 (are you 60?) @vividdreamer318 (your imagination is certainly leading you astray) @breezylouisey (is that you weezy?) @momofmusa (i thought you were mom of USA lol) @alittlebitmasss (oops your s key got stuck) Anyway, there are more of you and I’m sorry I didn’t give you a moment of thrill by acknowledging you by name but I mentioned the Tumblr accounts that I’ve seen making horrendously wild, hateful, fictional, hurtful accusations against other Outlander fans with no speck of proof - accusations meant to inspire others to emulate you and spread hate to those people as well. Let me get this straight. From what I can tell, you are super hopping mad about the content of certain Twitter and Instagram accounts. Fine. Totally fine. You are entitled to your opinions. I can see why those accounts might make some people mad. I mean, irrelevant to my life but maybe not yours. You are mad that certain Twitter and Instagram accounts have been created for the sole purpose of throwing shade and mocking a certain celebrity you hold in high esteem. I get that. Fine. Be outraged! Express yourselves!! Speaking of fine I know you will go through this post with a fine toothed comb for anything you can argue with and attack me over because god forbid you actually read the message, digest the information, thoughtfully consider the content and then share your thoughts and opinions and maybe answer some of my questions. Nope that’s not your style. Attack attack attack half-cocked and don’t put any thought or concern for reality into it. Yes you are the borg of Antis as the foil to the Shippers. I didn’t create that world, you did. You wanted to be the anti-shippers. You are gathered on Tumblr together to be this Anti-Shipper fighting army. Go forth and fight uhh I guess? WHY???? See, shippers are motivated by love. That’s really obvious. There are all types of shippers just as there are all types of people (and even all types of antis), but what brings them together is not just their love of Outlander (and you guys love Outlander too! Whee we have something in common) but their love of the LOVE parts of Outlander and all the LOVE associated with Outlander in promos, BTS, interviews, Q&As, social media banter between the cast and crew, etc. LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE. So you generally don’t see shippers on social media attacking people with hatred and lies and accusations of criminal activity. Wait wait wait. Correction! YOU see shippers doing those things but no one else does. You mostly see shippers doing those things with accounts that aren’t even recognized shipper names. They are basically troll accounts that you have deduced are shipper accounts. You do have these long convoluted narratives of what certain shippers are alleged to have done and you bandy them about so frequently that your telephone game grows legs and walks it’s own marathon and becomes some weird beast-mode attack shipper who does horrible things. You say you SAW these things but you haven’t. Show me a tweet, a facebook post, an instagram post from an Outlander fan who identifies herself as a shipper and has a known persona in the fandom and is attacking, hating, committing these horrendous crimes you claim. What I mean is, SHOW ME THE MONEY! SHOW ME PROOF to back up your narrative. You have specifically named a number of Outlander fans and made outrageous claims as to their character, behavior, beliefs, actions, off-line actions and more. YOU HAVE NO PROOF BECAUSE THESE STORIES ARE FICTION. I’ll give you an example of how your lies have grown wings, run a marathon and turned into beast-mode: So a certain blue check account posts that a certain object of your hatred and hate-mongering did something so illegal that she would have been arrested and would still be in jail. You all headnod, mouth breath, feel righteous for having attacked her because you were soooo right, bang away at your keyboards and continue the lies and hatred and stoke the fires for uhhh fun? Yet you all know that she isn’t in jail and couldn’t have done this highly illegal thing because you watch her every move and you saw her posting pics of herself just last weekend participating in a fitness event. Hmmmm. Are you collectively dumbing each other down with your groupthink or all you all that stupid? YOU KNOW IT’S A LIE. But you’ve all convinced each other it’s ok to lie about it, malign, spread hatred and misinformation about certain fans and tarnish their reputation in the fandom because… because? because why??? Help me out here. So it’s because someone has said rude bad things to an actress you believe is Sam Heughan’s girlfriend even though he has never once said so. You BELIEVE it so it’s your reality. And the fans that you malign? You do that because they believe something else. But the weirdest thing is that you do malign them by tossing out totally unfounded and false accusations about their behavior and ascribe all kinds of unsavory activities, motives, and behaviors to these fans you have chosen to malign. You do the thing to them that you so claim to hate they are doing to the objects of your admiration. I’m still working on this and I still need your help. So because you BELIEVE that two actors are dating and BELIEVE that it’s wrong that internet trolls make claims that they are not and some internet trolls say really rude things and tag them, you feel fully justified in making claims that the trolls are not just trolls but actual recognizable Outlander fans. Are you like shippers of trollworld or something? I’ll just come right out and say it. Kim Hickey is not behind any of those trolls accounts you claim she is. I know this and you know this. You know which accounts are legitimately hers because she identifies herself. You are even attacking her My Peak Challenge account that she posts inspirational memes and encourages people to donate to Bloodwise. Are you for fucking real? You’re attacking a charity endeavor in your blind hatred of…. hatred of who fucking knows. Even if you didn’t know she wasn’t behind the troll accounts, you absolutely have no basis for claiming she is. You are making shit up and publicly proclaiming it as truth just like that thing that Shippers do that you claim to hate. Also, let’s talk about me: I am a public person online. I don’t hide behind cutesy names. You can look me up and it won’t even be doxing me because it’s all right there, isn’t it? I have no sock accounts. I put my name on all my accounts because I own what I say and share. This tumblr account was created in the middle of last summer as a parody of Starz Obsessable campaign therefore it did not need my name on it. I never had a Tumblr account before that and I have never even sent anons on Tumblr. I never pretended I was anyone else or made any attempt to be anyone else. I posted freely about myself and my life when it was topical, including photos of myself. If you were like BINGO I’m such a supersleuth I figured out who is behind that blog!! you’re not smart or observant. It was obvious. The thing is, though, shippers didn’t know who I was. Not because they didn’t know who was behind “Obsessive Sassenach” but because they didn’t know who Nipuna was. Isn’t that funny? One of the Outlander fans on the top of your BAD SHIPPER LIST WHO MUST BE EXTERMINATED list isn’t even known by other shippers. What makes me a shipper? Just that I have heart eyes for Sam and Cait and think they have chemistry and oh wait, whoah, ZOMG, Arthur Kade thinks that too. Josh Horowitz does too! and ummmm ummmm that one lady at TCA that one year and that one book author who was on the NYT best seller list and you know I could go on. It’s not a crime to be fully happy to enjoy Sam and Caitriona’s chemistry. And if that makes me a shipper, yay. But the only reason I’m actually a known component of the shipper community now is because you guys have dragged my name around and created ridiculous lies about me. It’s like I’m some sort of Shipper Legend (to you, not shippers) who does these super crazy Shipper things in AntiLand. Remember the grave story that was created by one of you weirdos because a family friend of mine who is a caretaker for a military graveyard in the USA was friends with Sam’s father? You guys turned it into: That Crazy Shipper Nipuna stalks Sam’s father’s grave in hopes of running into him and Caitriona making a baby on his dad’s grave in Scotland. Or something like that. Anyway, tour bus guides in Scotland think there are crazy Outlander fans who stalk Sam at his father’s grave but if they stop to think they realize they don’t even know if he has a grave or if it’s even in Scotland. You’re maligning the whole fucking fandom you freaks! You’re creating these outrageous, convoluted piece of fiction because you are all worked up about uhh something and then you tag other nasty people and get them to repeat the stories and then the stories get embellished and repeated and you sit back and watch the telephone game continue. But don’t you realize that you’re fucking the whole thing up for yourselves too? I mean, I guess not if you like chaos and mayhem. But most of you profess to care about people being nice and kind and cry out that bullying is bad and wrong. But then you do just that when you pick an Outlander fan and create detailed and convoluted lies about her behavior. The people you lie about know they are lies, sure. And lots of other people know they are lies and ignore you, but you repeat the lies over and over and you know that saying about how if you repeat a lie often enough people will start to believe you. So you repeat and repeat and then sit back and with self satisfied smiles. Or maybe it’s just that your mouth is open because you’re breathing through it. Whatever. I don’t know your motives. I don’t know what attracts you to fan the way you do. I don’t know what fulfills you. I know it’s not LOVE. But do you even know? Are you just running around half-cocked and brainless and letting yourselves be lied to? What gives? Can you help me understand why you are constantly naming and targeting certain people and pointing others to attack them and if that doesn’t work creating stories that will hopefully motivate them to attack? WHY???
These are made to match my Redone Windows. The first two shots under the header pic show the exterior doors that I redid to take out dings and nicks and to whiten the dull gray EA version of white. I didn’t add any colors to these (and why in the world has tumblr decided all the sudden that contractions aren’t spelled correctly? I know how to spell didn’t).
The second two show all the doors and arches that I edited and then added colors to. So all the doors and arches shown in the 3rd and 4th pics have at least 21 color options.
My dear, shameless, brazen melbrewer367 was kind enough to share her files from her door overrides (that I can’t find the link to, you need a “my stuff” page, princess butthead), so that made making a lot of these less time consuming and tedious.
I’m not doing any more windows or doors in the near future :)
You can pick and choose which doors you want from this folder:
Let me know if you need an alternate download link.
TOU: You can use these in houses you upload (as long as it’s not at TSR or another paysite or behind an A.dfly link). Don’t just reupload the doors/arches files and claim them as your own. Don’t reupload them to paysites like TSR. For goodness sake don’t reupload these or anything else of mine by uploading your mods folder somewhere.
I love video games. I would easily say it is my favorite hobby I do. Usually it takes a backseat nowadays to me doing other things in my life but it is truly the one I find the most passion in. That got me to thinking what anime would I want to turn into games? I started visualizing genres and unique ways to turn them into games and my imagination went wild with the idea. It really was one of the most fun ideas I’ve come up with in a while. I ordered these in less of quality and more of how proud I was of each idea I came up with for them. I also put genre and studio making it to make it really feel more alive to me. Game on!
10: Kids on the Slope
Genre: Rhythm Company: Nintendo
This was a given with the show in question. I sat for a while thinking over whether it or Your Lie in April deserved this spot and settled on Kids for a few reasons. I figured a time piece of music would be very neat to see in gaming. We always get certain series or styles but never one time period aside from like when Rockband did stuff for Kiss. You can play one of 4 instruments: piano, drums, trumpet, and double bass. The music selection would all be songs from the anime and time period. A jazz based rhythm game made by men in Nintendo who grew up in that time period. The would for sure connect with the title and bring out the music quality to the highest standard.
9: Gurren Lagann
Genre: Mech Open World Adventure Company: Monolith Soft
This one would have you building your own mech form the start and working through the story of Gurren Lagann with it as a part of Team Dai Gurren. Once the 7 year gap happens you would have tons of side quests and ways to upgrade and remodel your mech while taking on tons of challenges. Monolith loves mechs to death so I figure who better to display Mechs at the most over the top in gaming form. References to other famous Mech anime would be nice too as a way to make it feel special. Unlockable mechs for certain Gundams and the Evas from Neon Genesis would be a true delight.
8: Rurouni Kenshin
Genre: Action Company:
Following the story of Kenshin beat for beat is what I want here. The game would be split into 3 parts. The first would be a section in Tokyo where basic missions and gameplay is taught while getting through the start of the story. Then you would get to Kyoto and have a much larger area to see and the story would build up to the Shishio arc. Then you would end off with Kenshin’s backstory and Enishi’s arc with a Tokyo filled with tons more to do. You would have also side unlockable stories playable with Sanosuke, Yahiko, Kaoru, and Saito. I chose Rocksteady for it’s great open world design, and combat flow in the Batman games. I think bringing that to a Kenshin game would be fantastic. Mix their love to drop hidden facts about the city and characters with obtainable secrets and this game would be a love letter to Kenshin fans. Telling the story from start to finish and constantly giving you new abilities as you work through the story.
7:Kill la Kill
Genre: Beat’em Up Company: Platinum Games
Name a company that makes better crazy action games then Platinum? With Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising alone I’m convinced they could make a wonderful adaptation of the Kill la Kill world and make the action feel like the anime did. I’m undecided if I want the actual story to be the focus or just let them make an original plot within the world. I’d rather like to play Ryuko though and kick ass with my scissor blades. So I think I lean more towards that for sure.
Genre: Action Adventure Company:
Haha Looks like I forgot to type something here the first time!
FMA’s game would follow the story of the series of course(brotherhood), and you would play everyone from Ed to Mustang to Winry. Varieties of gameplay styles and modes to keep it fresh while hitting the player hard with the feels of the story itself. It would hit all the marks and try to be a little bit of everything just like the actual series. Bandai makes tons of great titles like the Tales series so I trust them to figure out a way to make it all come to life with a perfect equivalent exchange.
5: Fate Series
Genre: Open World Action-RPG Company: From Software
Fate is a pretty dark world and the set up of the Holy Grail War is fantastic. Give players the option to choose from almost a hundred options of heroes of the past, present, and future and let them take part in the war. Letting you improve as you battle and explore trying to find intel on the other competitors would allow you a ton of freedom while playing. Mix all the options and each playthrough would be unique as well. I think a risk/reward battle system like From Software is known for would work here. You are rewarded for being more risky but at the same time show all your skills and you could be at a disadvantage when trying to fight future heroes. I think it would be a very challenging battle of wits and reflexes at least.
4: Kuroko no Basuke
Genre: Sports Company: 2K Games
Anyone remember NBA Jam and NBA Showtime? The hilarious bombastic basketball video games that would let you dunk from almost anywhere on the court. Imagine the basically superpower of the Kuroko cast in video game glory. Let people play through the story or exhibition matches and let them go crazy with every character’s special traits. Heck you could even make a few fake new character with weird abilities just to spice it up a bit. I’ll let a sports series expert handle this one and make it crazy as can be.
3: Magic Kaito
Genre: Heist Stealth Company: Level-5
With Persona 5 on the cusp on being released world wide it made me think, why not a Kaito game in a similar vein? You could play through a multitude of scenarios made for the game including all sorts of characters from Aoko to Conan. Be Kaito Kid and use what the game gives you to make it through the police, other adversaries, and of course Conan again to best them all as the phantom thief! I think this game would be full of laughs and creative level design open to player to explore. Think like a funny Hitman game, where you steal instead of kill. Any fan would be in for a treat and I think Level-5 has a huge track record that would reassure me.
2: Spice & Wolf
Genre: Economics/Dating Sim Company: MPS Labs
From the creators of Civ. I want a fantastic simulation title. You play through the world of Spice & Wolf as Kraft Lawrence and try to get Holo to her home. The game would have travel segments like Oregon trail, a romance meter to build with Holo, and a very complex world economics system to learn and master. If you are able to be the best at all of them you will get the best and true ending of the game. Anything from death to Holo leaving you can happen, its up to you to master the market and your heart to get the true end!
1: The Girl Who Leapt Through TIme
Genre: Choice Based Adventure Company: Naughty Dog
So, I was thinking lets have a new character that you play in the same world as the Girl Who Leapt Through Time. You are given 100 jumps to make. And the game takes place over the course of 3 months. So around 90 days. Every day you play through like a simulation game building relationships, leveling up certain personality and knowledge stats and overall learning about the world. At any time over the 3 months you can jump back in time after completing any new task. Which ones are important and which ones are truly unimportant in the grand scheme? Maybe they are all important. Work your way to a happy ending and not the bad one you see in your dreams on day 1 of the story. It would make players really try their hardest to appreciate every little decision and I think I want the perfect graphics of realism from Naughty Dog and their little touches to make this a true classic through time.

What anime would you make a game out of? I tried to use a variety of genres and ideas but I’m sure there are tons more out there! Tell me somewhere on the net!
I'm not looking for a fight, nor would anything you say disappoint me. There are loads of videos and pics of them together, including some that show them giving each other a quick kiss. You wear shipper goggles so you don't see it. Nor do you know (from what you have said) how long-term couples behave. Just because C hasn't officially 'claimed him' (🙄), doesn't mean they're not together. That's the lamest excuse ever. I know what you'll say ... so no, not an anti.
Why so mad though anon? You’re free to ship Cait and T in your own corner. I’m happily shipping SamCait here without a care in the world. My shipper goggles are on and the view is pretty great. Leave me be.
