Kool-aid Vase Incident | 17.08.17
  • Someone in chat: Talk about the vase thing.
  • Dan: Yeah, Phil what the hell is up with your kool-aid vase incident?
  • Phil: Right, let me explain...
  • Dan: Have you explained this?
  • Phil: NO! It was a...
  • Dan: Seriously, what is wrong with this guy? Explain it.
  • Phil: The kool-aid it said...
  • Dan: No, go back. Context.
  • Phil: In my video...
  • Dan: Which video?
  • Phil: My Sleepless Night With Phil...
  • Dan: This is why I interrupt Phil.
  • Phil: Yeah.
  • Dan: He leaves out... look, I let him start things 'cause I'm nice like that but if he just goes "the kool-aid went in this!" It's like look... they don't know what you're...
  • Phil: Let's rewind, sit by the fire, open the book and tell you a tale about the glass of the vase. Basically, in my Sleepless Night With Phil video, I was making kool-aid and the kool-aid said to prepare it in a large drink receptacle, so I thought what's large? None of these glasses, I'm going to use this massive glass.
  • Dan: It's... it wasn't a glass! It was a flower vase.
  • Phil: It was in the cupboard with all the glasses!
  • Dan: Was it?
  • Phil: Yes!
  • Dan: Why?
  • Phil: I don't know! I didn't put it there.
  • Dan: Didn't you?
  • Phil: I just thought it was a massive glass but it turns out it is a flower vase but it makes a really good drink. Do you know when you have a massive mug for a big hot chocolate if you're having one of those nights? You know?
  • Dan: *hesitant* Yeah... *laughs*
  • Phil: Yeah, well if you're going to have an eight hour session on the laptop, just pour one drink into a vase and you don't have to get up again.
  • Dan: I guess? Sure.
  • Phil: Just make sure it's got no flower bits in it.
  • Dan: But there are big drinks receptacles that are like cylinders...
  • Phil: There can be like three pints in that!
  • Dan: Wouldn't you like cut your lip on it because it's not what it's supposed to be?
  • Phil: No, just think outside of the box, Dan. That's what you need to do.


The Signs as Art Styles
  • Aries: Impressionism. Aries have a fascination and love for nature and colors, which is shown a lot in impressionism. They live in the moment and like to be present in time, instead of worrying about the past or future.
  • Taurus: Fauvism. Many Taurus's love expressing themselves. From wearing t-shirts with their favorite band or movie on it, to making their own stories or music. Artists that used Fauvism in their art use their art to express themselves. They are much like Taurus's in that aspect.
  • Gemini: Surrealism. A Gemini loves to explore their mind, delving into the depths of their creativity and learning all about themselves. Surrealism is all about exploring the unconscious mind, which is what Gemini's would love to do if they were artists.
  • Cancer: Naturalism. Cancers like to read people, and they drown themselves in their own emotions. Naturalism shows a range of expressions, gestures, and postures. A Cancer is much like art in Naturalism.
  • Leo: Cubism. Cubism was the first style of abstract art, and like a Leo would do, it started something new. Leo's are trend setters - they are not followers. They tend to look beyond what they see, and discover new things that they enjoy, they don't just look at what everyone else is doing.
  • Virgo: Dadaism. Virgo's are rebels. They don't like to follow the rules and they like to disobey, in order to prove a point. Dadaism was created out of anger for how things were at the time, in terms of the social and political state of the country. A Virgo would love looking into the history of Dadaism.
  • Libra: Post Impressionism. Libra's like to be independent. They don't care what the biggest trend is, they don't care how many friends they have - as long as they're happy. Post Impressionists were a small group of individuals who created their own independent styles, just like how Libra's and their group have similarities, but they are fully themselves.
  • Scorpio: Photorealism. Scorpios are blunt, upfront, and honest. Which sometimes makes them look like an asshole. Photorealism is a very realistic form of painting/drawing, which is like a Scorpio in the way that they're real and don't tell you lies.
  • Sagittarius: Abstract Art. Sagittarius are creative and imaginative, they like to look deeper into the things they see. They like to be interesting and they like people to want to ask questions. Abstract Art is just that - creative, imaginative, and it provokes questions. What does it mean? What is it? Some of these questions can be answered, some can't. Just the same as a Sagittarius.
  • Capricorn: Pop Art. Capricorns are fun, lively people who live freely and enjoy the little things in life. Pop Art started in the 1950's and 60's, bringing some light to the post war atmosphere that took over the US. Capricorns do the same thing, they try to lighten up anyone who needs - or even doesn't need - a little happiness in their life.
  • Aquarius: Scenic Art. A scenic artist has many skills, and can make their art using many different tools. Aquarius have different skills and they have many different traits - and most people enjoy a few of them. They're very likable and they work well with others, just as scenic art can conform to anyone's aesthetic needs.
  • Pisces: Expressionism. Pisces look into themselves. They, like Taurus's, love expressing themselves - but in a more emotional way. They don't hide their feelings and they're open to those they're close with. Expressionists used self expression in their art and showed themselves through what they created.

i find it so strange that lgbt people are often accused of being “too gay” or “too trans” just for existing visibly. so many straight cis men have a personality that can be summed up as “protein loving gym rat” but that’s not considered being “too straight” - it’s viewed as male culture. straight cis women can wear hyperfeminine makeup and talk about their love lives constantly but that’s not considered being “too straight”  - it’s expected of them. yet every time an lgbt person is openly, unapologetically gender nonconforming, they’re being “too gay” and “making their sexuality their identity”. there’s nothing wrong with any of these things! let’s stop acting like gay kids being openly gay, or trans kids being openly trans, is harming people - fitting a reductive stereotype doesn’t make us less worthy of support.

Old Halloween

I found it!!!

okay so I’ve been looking for ages for this old track I did for Halloween my sophomore year of high school, and I never made an mp3 version

but I finally found the old project files and summoned the ancient slumbering program I used to make music in (mu.lab if anyone was wondering) and got the thing to function well enough to export this song

I hope you like it! It’s almost September get fuckin spooky!!!

do you ever stop and think about the sheer /amount/ of content we’re provided with on a daily basis?? like thomas does a couple youtube videos a week, tries to make a short video every day he doesn’t upload a yt vid, and he uses like every social media site daily, usually posting at least one thing each on instagram and snapchat, tweeting all day (not to mention replying to tweets), reblogging and commenting on things on tumblr, like ??? this guy is nonstop and we’re so lucky to have him.

anonymous asked:

Trying to be scientifically accurate in sci-fi is a sucker's game. Just like how you had authors making the piltdown man plot critical, there's stuff now I'm sure will have been found to be based on discredited theories in the future, cuz science is always moving. Space-fantasy like Star Wars will always be timeless because of how generic all the "science" is. Well, for the original trilogy anyway. Don't get me started on the legion of tech manuals and expanded universe stuff...

Using the term “hard scifi” to talk about scifi that emphasizes plausibility and extrapolation is maybe one of the greatest public relations and publicity failures of all time. The name implies a lot of things, all of which are bad, and very few of which are actually true.

Sure, there are bad examples of hard scifi – there are lots of unreadable scifi stories about “two engineers discussing relativity as they get sucked down a black hole,” as Cory Doctorow put it. Then again, there are lots of bad examples of steampunk stories, romance stories, any kind of story you can name.

It can, though, be done well…and some writers do very interesting things with it. These kinds of stories don’t have to be intimidating…the whole point of a story is that you learn as you go. If a science writer wanted to be intimidating, they would be doing something other than writing a novel. 

The appeal of scifi that has an element of plausibility is that it activates the same part of your brain that lights up when you enjoy detective novels, the logical reasoning portion Forrest Ackerman, one of the founders of modern fandom in the 1930s, once said that if science fiction never existed, he would be a fan of detective novels, because the same processes are at work in both.

Here’s a few recommendations if “talky, techy” scifi that could really happen is more your bag, and might even change your mind about that entire field if you give them a chance:

Dragon’s Egg by Robert L. Forward. This story is about human explorers who find a planet orbiting a neutron star, which has a gravity 67 billion times that of earth, and the sesame seed sized inhabitants bound by the strong-force rather than the weak force, who see only in ultraviolet and x-ray light, and who’s lives are incredibly sped up by time dialation…their entire civilization, from a human point of view, lasts an entire month, and they worship our spacecraft as a divine artifact. By the start of the month, they are stone age, by the end, they have technology far in advance of earth and try to communicate with us slow-lived beings.

Einstein’s Bridge by John G. Cramer. Imagine if this happened: a supercollider turns on, and the radioactive particles start blasting out prime numbers. It’s being used by an intelligent species to communicate with us…and it turns out more than one alien race are trying to do that, including one that happens to be evil.

Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars books. This series is the antidote to the idea that hard scifi is by definition, not character driven. It reminds me of nothing so much as Game of Thrones: it’s a political thriller that alternates between the point of view of multiple characters, set around the colonization and independence of Mars, trying to free itself from the yoke of an oppressive corporate ruled earth. It makes you want to try kava (the drink of choice on Mars), kind of like how Narnia makes you want to try turkish delight. 


If you’re the imbecile who uploaded the Owari no Seraph chapter 60 raws onto manga reading sites like Mangatail, I don’t know if you’ll see this, but you’re not welcome on my blog. Especially if you found the link through my post in which I explicitly stated in bold not to repost because the owner of the pics straight up said not to. They’ve gotten mad about reposting before and have left warnings since. It’s people like you that ruin nice things for everyone.

Jercy Text Convos Part 2. 

I was bored and made more text conversations between Jason and Percy based off of ones me and my friends have had (with a bit of tweaking).

If you want to see my others, I posted the first set on my old PJO blog here.

I really like making original content, so if there’s something you’d like to see me do involving my fandoms, let me know. ):

anonymous asked:

hello i am in marching band and i would like to clarify a few things, first of all, when your school's team makes a touchdown, the band plays a short version of the school's fight song (let it be the voltron theme pLEASE OMg) and if they make the extra kick at the end of the touchdown, the band plays the whole entire fight song. Also, they don't have marimbas and bells, they only use instruments they can march with. (you don't have to reply to this but as a band person i am obliged to help)

As a non-band person, I thank you for this. 

Yes, the Altea fight song can and will be the motherfucking Voltron theme song CAN YOU IMAGINE?

Thank you Marching Band Anon for adding to the AU and being helpful with marching band know how.

Bless you.
