thinking about making it my icon

One of the most iconic faces of pop culture knew precise makeup techniques: Quoting Marilyn Monroe’s makeup artist, Allan Whitey Snyder: “Marilyn had makeup tricks that no one had or knew. Most of them she didn’t learn from me. She discovered it herself”. In fact, Marilyn did her own makeup for many occasions. Photographer Sam Shaw talked about one day while she was getting ready. “I asked her: ‘Marilyn, don’t you think that this makeup is a little too much?.’ 'Sam, you don’t understand’, she answered: ’This make-up is for my fans, those people waiting inside the movie houses, or outside on the street waiting in the crowd at an opening. They are the people the studios won’t let close to the theatre unless they pay to get in. When I arrive there I’ll turn to wave to them and they’ll see me and won’t be disappointed. My fans want me to be glamorous. I won’t disappoint them.’                                                                                                          

Skin: Marilyn liked her skin with a flawless finish, but yet glowy - you note in many picures that her cheeks, tip of the nose, and under brow area are glowing, she liked the effect that it gave, especially with the studio lights

Eyes: Marilyn expanded her eye crease by overdrawing it with brown eyeshadow. Her eyeliner was not too thin or huge, and it always gave the classic cat eye effect. She also drawn with brown pencil a line in the under eye area to fake a 'shadow’. She prefered individual fake lashes, applying them in a way to maintain the shape that she wanted for the eyes. She also arched her brows with eyebrow pencil.

Lips: By far, the most iconic part of Marilyn’s makeup are her lips. As you can see in her makeup free pictures, they were by far not as plump as they appeared to be. Marilyn always overdrawn her lips, (so did almost all the other female stars on that time period), but she had a especial trick - Marilyn used at least 4 different colors of red lipstick to create a 3D effect; the lighter shades on the center of her lips, and the darker ones on the edges. She applied vaseline to finalize the glossy and plump effect. Her beauty mark was not fake, in fact, you can slightly see it in the makeup free picture - but it’s not as noticeable because it was almost the same color of her skin, so she enhanced it with makeup.  

“One can never wakeup in the morning, wash the face and look like Marilyn Monroe. She knew every trick on the book to compose her look” Photographer (and Marilyn’s friend) Milton Greene

anonymous asked:

lmao muslim women only wear hijab because koran says that women body is dirty and you can only show your body to your father or man. koran control women. i'm happy that i'm human who independently and made independently decisions. not follow some misogyny book writen by man god who thinks men are better than women. religons are shit. believe in yourself not in some god man.

first of all, thank you for hiding behind the anonymous icon and judging me for a small piece of cloth i put on my head, it just proves how ignorant you are <3 

now let me tell you a few things about the quran (yes, quran not Koran),  all too often, people read the quran selectively, taking phrases out of context,  use it for whatever point they want to make and i think you’re one of those people. unlike what you believe, islam is not a religion where women sit and take orders, actually I do not know of another religious tradition in which women were so central, so present, so active in its formative history, from the first years of islam women scholars taught judges and imams, issued fatwas, and traveled to distant cities. Some made lecture tours across the Middle East. the real question here is “Are Men and Women Equal Before Allah?” and any person with a brain, who read the quran knows that the answere to this question is YES  just one example is the verse 4:43 from sourat a’nissa’ ( the women), it starts by saying men and women are created “from one soul.” So the Koran starts from the assumption of absolute equality in creation.

“what do you think about all violent thing in writen in koran? murder, rape, violence, about men controlling everything women do? “ wow what kind of quran did you read??? bc the quran i read wasn’t like this, it was quite the opposit actually, the principle reason of fighting in Islam is self-defensive  “To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid…If God did not defend one set of people by means of another, then monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of God is commemorated in abundant measure, would surely have been destroyed…” (22:39-40)

Further, Muslims are commanded not to be aggressive: “Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors” (2:190) In addition, when the enemy inclines toward peace, Muslims are commanded to cease hostilities: “But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace” (8:61). The guiding principle of Islam with respect to non-Muslims is one of tolerance and mutual respect, plain and simple: “God does not forbid you from dealing kindly and justly with those who do not fight you for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes: for God loveth those who are just.” (60:8)
now let’s talk about hijab. Muslim society prizes female modesty.  Hijab frees women from being thought of as sexual objects of desire or from being valued for their looks, or body shape rather then their minds and intellect.  No longer slaves to consumerism, hijab liberates women from the need to conform to unrealistic stereotypes and images dictated by the media.  Women wearing hijab have expressed that dressing modestly and covering their hair, minimises sexual harassment in the workplace. The aura of privacy created by hijab is indicative of the great value Islam places upon women. Hijab can be a symbol of piety and it can be a sign of great inner strength and fortitude.  A woman wearing hijab becomes a very visible sign of Islam that’s why,  in the last 30 years hijab has emerged as a sign of Islamic consciousness.  Many women see wearing the hijab as indicative of their desire to be part of an Islamic revival, especially in countries where the practice of Islam is discouraged or even forbidden.

whew that was long, sorry if i made many mistakes english isn’t my first language (not even 2nd), thank you.

listen, jontron has been horrible since GG’s inception. 
i mean that doesn’t make any of the recent and not-so-recent BATSHIT GARBAGE he’s said any less BATSHIT, but i’m just shocked it took him agreeing with Actual White Supremacists and his racist tirade in that debate stream to get people to realize that his ~Ironic Racism/Misogyny/Transphobia over all these years has either transformed into or always was genuine racism/misogyny/transphobia.
(rape mention past this point.) anyway my awakening moment was back in highschool (actually probably 2013 now that i think about it) watching GG for the first time, the iconic sonic 06 playthrough and thinking it was really funny!! i remember my face hurting from smiling and laughing so much. at least until jontron straight up said he wanted to rape a female NPC they ran into. and as a teenage girl AT THAT EXACT POINT IN TIME dealing with sexual assault and rape joke harassment shit from a male classmate, and watching funny videos on the internet to forget about what i was dealing with, that “joke” wiped the smile off my face and i immediately started crying and closed the video instantly and never finished watching the playthrough or touched another GG video until years after danny replaced jon. (and even then i didn’t stick around super long either - my mexican ass can only stand so many ~ironic~ ‘dirty mexican’ jokes and bad ‘accent humor’, even if not as overtly horrible as jon had been.)
anyway my point is that it’s just really funny that people who had been SAYING all these years that “he’s just kidding!! him saying rapey and racist things are just jokes!!!” are for some reason shocked now that it turns out he wasn’t joking at all, as if a totally not racist or misogynistic person would think it’s okay or be comfortable enough to joke about those things to begin with. it’s almost as funny as the fact that jontron thinks him making those kinds of comments has no effect on the audience he seems to crave so badly!!! (read: his non white, jewish, female, disabled, and victims of sexual assault former fans who got tired of his shit. not to mention alienating his ‘heroes’ like neil c. for openly being a pos where neil could see it LMAO.)

TL;DR: jontron has literally always been shit, he’s just been a lot louder about it lately bc he’s managed to weed out all his decent fans and left only his nasty hugbox who never challenge his racist rapey self.

Learning Graphic Design On Your Own

A Quick Note…

Everyone learns differently. Some people like to ask questions in class, others like to watch videos that they can pause and replay, and even more people could prefer to just tinker and see what happens (I’m personally a tinkerer). The first thing you should do when learning on your own (so probably online or through books) is to do some research and know how you like to learn.

So, let’s start with… what even is “Graphic Design”?

Let’s get this straight… graphic designers aren’t fine artists. They are problem solvers, visual communicators, and sometimes curators of information in an aesthetically pleasing way. We organize information and try to make the world an easier-to-understand and more beautiful place. Of course, there are other fields like advertising where we communicate to customers why they should buy certain products. Or there are User Interface/Experience designers that will develop websites and video game interfaces and design how you interact with it. Look into graphic design and see what field you want to be in. What do you want to do with graphic design?

Fun fact, the google definition says: “the art or skill of combining text and pictures in advertisements, magazines, or books.” and to that, I’d like to say we do SO MUCH MORE.

Now that you know what you’re doing…Here’s the VERY BRIEF process!
(I may make individual posts for each step later on)

  1. Learn the basics
    1. Typography, how to use the basic principles of line, shape, color, and so on is usually for everyone no matter your field.
    2. Basics like composition are also very important. If you’re into editorial then typographic spreads will be more of your focus. If you’re in web design then seeing how websites are typically laid out will be a thing to look into. Basic typography, color theory, and principles still apply!
    3. Basics and principles are a google search (or a book) away! Everyone talks about these things ALL the time.
  2. Look up inspiration and develop an “eye” for design
    1. Follow design blogs! Follow other designers! On all of your social media! (There are so many Tumblr blogs and Instagram accounts solely dedicated to graphic design curation).
  3. Look into the big names of the industry
    1. Why were they remembered? Everyone else in the field probably remembers them for that, too.
    2. What was so great about them? Apply what you learn to your own work!
    3. If they’re well known, they probably have at least decent work to get inspired from!
  4. Research is done… time to do some work!
    1. If you’re just starting out, there are some things you’re probably not used to. Doing things by hand with sharpie markers on paper will definitely help train your eye and mind to think more about communication, not pretty things. 
    2. Abstract things down into simple shapes. Then try communicating that same object with fewer shapes. Maybe only lines? Geometric style? Play around with communication! This is key when you get into icons, logos, and other visuals that require a more minimal look. 
    3. Remember, you make information more easily accessible. The best logos are easy to remember because they are simple and effective. Your work may one day need that kind of punch!
  5. The jump from traditional to digital
    1. It’s time to learn about your program(s) of choice… my biggest piece of advice would be to just mess with it. Learning on your own by trying to make something is one of the best ways to train your mind and body on how to use the programs.
    2. Try every tool. Try making basic shapes. Then make basic objects with those shapes. Then try making a person or something more complicated. Try to test every tool to see what you’d use it for!
    3. Don’t know anything or how to do something? Google it! If you’re asking there’s probably 5+ different YouTube videos, 3+ articles, and 100+ tutorials on how to do it.
  6. Let’s work on projects!
    1. Now that you’re familiar with the history, principles, other designers, and the programs… just keep on making stuff!
    2. Making your own projects (make your own website, business cards, a flyer for a club, a T-Shirt, and so on…) is my biggest recommendation on how to learn graphic design. Actually applying everything you’ve learned will make you think in a problem-solving way! Also sharing things that you’ve made that actually matter is way more fun than sharing a fancy circle you made with no context. (You can say “look at this T-Shirt I made!” instead of “look at this weird circle I made!”)
  7. Get feedback from designers and non-designers
    1. Once you’ve made stuff… ask everyone! Non-designers will give you a client’s perspective of your work. A designer’s perspective will help you grow as a designer and they may see things that you and your average person wouldn’t have noticed. (you’re always free to ask me if you’d like!)
    2. Please remember to not take feedback personally (unless they’re being rude, then just ignore them). You’re learning and growing and there’s always room for improvement. A lot of feedback is not a bad thing!
  8. Stay determined!
    1. Being a designer isn’t easy. That T-Shirt you made that took you a couple days? Someone could say they don’t get it. Other designers could say there was a better way to execute your idea. Another person may even say it looks like something else!
    2. When you design you have to expect to make revisions, rethinking, and making more revisions until it’s at a good enough place to publish. But no matter what, you have to remember that it’s not about PERFECTION. It’s about getting it DONE and learning to grow. No one is perfect, and it’s mostly subjective, so just take the criticism you agree with and don’t apply what you disagree with. As a designer, you should know what’s right, wrong, or what you should consider bringing up to other designers.
    3. KEEP MAKING MORE STUFF! You can even remake older stuff as you go on! Just keep going!

That’s my super brief process!

Now honestly, I could’ve gotten down into the nitty gritty details of each step, but this is basically how I’d suggest going about it if you want to get a head start before getting into college, or you want to just learn on your own.

If you guys have any additional questions or want me to go more in-depth about anything, feel free to let me know! :)

i love my personality disorder and how it just [clenches fist] takes the fact that one person can have said something negative about me and makes me believe literally everyone hates me…. and once i feel like literally everyone hates me i fall into an instant crashing depression that disconnects me from any ounce of identity i have because apparently im still constantly balancing on the opinions of those who see me, despite spending only about 7% of my time outside of my house

Problems for “Classic” Vamps

So, instead of jumping right in, let’s actually explain what I mean when I say “classic” vamps. I wrote “Dracula-style” in the original post, but that’s the wrong label to use. Basically what I mean by classic is the iconic idea of a vampire. So, the pale skin, the black tux, the aversion to garlic and sunlight and crosses, the stuff that you would see in a cartoon making a vampire joke. They sleep in coffins, poof into bats, maybe hypnotize people a bit, that kind of thing.

There’ll be posts on what I think about the idea of “vampire mythology” being a set-in-stone thing later, but this just a lighthearted start. And my first post, woo! So let’s get on with the edited version of Problems for “Classic” Vamps. And please note, this is intended to be edutainment, not straight-up history class.

Blood does NOT stain teeth. Thank you, folks! But seriously though, always remind your vamps to brush and floss for healthy fangs (and to avoid blood breath, of course).

Fluorescent lights emit UV rays. Which means if your vampire is sun-sensitive, there’s a good chance they’re sensitive to indoor lights, too. Scarves and sunglasses, mate. Scarves and sunglasses.

Garlic is evil. Stay away from Pizza Hut at all costs.

I won’t say church is evil ’cause this is the internet, but. Those crucifixes might cause some discomfort for your vamp. Might wanna experiment with other belief systems. Or just pray from home, that works too.

Immortality lasts a long time. Unless you wanna cop out and make your vamp have amnesia, they’re gonna have a lot of memories from their long, long pasts. They’ll also have lots of abilities/hobbies (knit one, purl two, yo) and experience from staying alive for so long. Unless, of course, they’ve been in a crypt for all this time. Then their language skills might not be so good.

Classic vamps transform. Into mist, wolves, bats! So be careful with windy nights, dog catchers, and white-nose syndrome.

someone in the tags said they liked the way I draw Rand’s hair, and I was like !!!! yes, that’s the thing I’m super proud of!

should i use it as my new icon?…

Kalagang #03

1x04 What’s Going On?

This post is probably going to be relatively short; there’s only one big chunk of scene that has Kalagang. But it’s definitely one of our favorites because it’s the iconic scene of Sense8. Before we go into What’s Up montage, I want to go over two scenes of Wolfgang and Abraham (and Felix).

Abraham: Whenever I have a difficult decision to make, I come here. This place brings a clarity to any decision. [What were you thinking about?] My mother […] She fell in love with an Englishman and ran away with him against her parents’ wishes. I think how much courage she had to make that decision. […] Our existence depends on sheer implausibility.

It seems like every single person around Wolfgang and Kala has something to say that somehow foreshadows or reflects their relationship. Remember Rajan’s speech during party in 1x02? Story about Abraham’s mother is not an exact parallel to Kalagang’s, but still some parts match. I mean we know what Kala and Wolfgang were planning to do in season 2 before that bitch, Lila turned in Wolfgang to BPO. The point is – it foreshadows, in some point, Kala is going to need some courage to make an important decision. And same thing may be applied to Wolfgang.

Abraham: I think I know where these rocks came from. Out of Mumbai (Bombay), I’m guessing…

By now, I’m pretty sure Wolfgang’s getting diamonds originally from India is just a coincidence. At first, I thought these diamonds or the story behind them would be a kind of medium that later connects Wolfgang and Kala. But now, since half of them are sold and the other half is gone – literally exploded along with Steiner by Wolfgang’s RPG, I think maybe it’ just a MacGuffin. Nevertheless I wanted to mention this part because, again, everything around Wolfgang and Kala is giving them signs they are meant to be together.

I think we’re going to need some music.

You’re welcome * wink *

Original post [x] @wolfgangssunshine

While our drunken German boy is reluctant to sing karaoke song in front of the crowd – but he does it anyway because he is connected to seven others who also sing that song. Duh.

Original post [x] @sense8sense

In India, Kala is dreaming…and in her dream, Kala seems more like herself than when she’s with Rajan in reality. She’s relaxed, comfortable, free…and happy.

Before the song begins, Wolfgang has a short flashback of his childhood; when little Wolfie gets scared to sing in front of people, his father laughs at him. Seeing illusion of his father, Wolfgang yells at him – and it once again proves how much anger Wolfgang holds against his father. Moreover, the way Wolfgang feels about singing, whether in public or not, is more than just feeling uncomfortable or embarrassed.

Everything about Wolfgang’s father – his drinking problem, abusive attitude, etc. – has traumatized Wolfgang since he was a little boy. I mentioned in previous post (#01) that Wolfgang is used to suppress his emotions. He may now be able to sing in front of people, but it doesn’t mean he’s forgotten how his father treated him on that day. So singing might not be something Wolfgang truly enjoys; it’s not something, also, that brings back good memories to him.

HOWEVER, Wolfgang’s memory about singing is about to be replaced…and change forever. Not by his father’s laughter, but by this woman.

Original post [x] @kalagang

I love how they look each other in that moment. Both are thinking ‘wait, you’re the one I saw in the Indian restaurant/balcony. Am I dreaming again? Is this real? Are you real?’

Original post [x] @fyeahwolfiekala

I was kinda surprised that Wolfgang is the one who seems more confused and lost at that moment (but even so being confused and all, Wolfgang slowly turns his body towards Kala which I thought it was cute)

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

Whereas Kala looks like she’s really glad to see Wolfgang again. I mean the way she’s being shy at first, but then slowly walks towards Wolfgang with a smile like that? Looks like someone has fallen head over heels for bad boy.

But I think the reason why Kala does not hesitate to get closer to Wolfgang is she’s dreaming. Because everything is happening inside her head, Kala thinks it’s okay – or I’d say safe – to do whatever she wants. If this was happening in reality, then nope, not a chance. She wouldn’t dare to smile like that, or to get closer to a stranger. (Just so you know – in her dream, Kala is wearing earrings. In reality, she’s not; and she literally says out loud that she was dreaming)

Original post [x] @reysleias

Aww, look at Wolfie. The sub is so on point. I think this is the first time where we actually see Wolfgang’s genuine smile – well, he does smile when he’s with Felix, but I’m not gonna count that in. We can all see he surely has a different kind of feeling towards Kala. I mean, come on, we’re looking at the same guy who said he’s not looking for a relationship…yeah, right.

Source unknown

JUST LOOK AT THEM! We have never seen them this joyful, excited, and thrilled. We have never seen them being this expressive. They are enjoying every. single. moment. together. And they don’t even know each other, at all!

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah.
I said hey, what’s going on?

KALAGANG IS GOING ON PEOPLE! MY SHIP IS SAILING!

They are looking at each other’s lips

They are looking each other’s eyes

They are still looking at each other…

Original post [x] @akissaway

A part of Wolfgang is still trying to figure out if he’s dreaming; if this is all just an illusion. His eyes are slowly tracing her face as if he wants to memorize every single feature of it, so even after this is all gone, he’d still be able to remember her. While the other part of him is practically screaming out loud that he wants her so bad. Look how he’s swallowing hard, like he’s trying his best to contain himself.

Daya: Kala? You were singing in English and dancing. [I was dreaming] You were smiling at someone. I have never seen you smile like that. Was it Rajan?

Original post [x] @stevenrogered

Daya, your sister was smiling at someone who is not Rajan. By the way, when Kala hesitates to answer at first…then kinda gives this evasive response to her sister, did anyone feel deja vu? If you look at the original post of this GIF, you’ll see that her reaction is similar to Wolfgang’s reaction.

Hmm…more reasons to ship them!

i was asked to do a tutorial on how i make my icons by anonymous, so here’s my super easy way of doing it. there’s no major editing or backgrounds simply because i’m super lazy and i prefer the look of clean, bright icons. i’ve only ever used this method on cartoons (voltron. i’ve only ever made voltron icons lol), so i can’t say for sure whether this method would work well with real people. just keep that in mind!

for some examples of what you can make, here’s my icons page.

please like/reblog if you try it out, and feel free to ask me any questions.

TOP TEN MARKSON MOMENTS

Long post ahead y’all but this was a lot of fun to go back and reminiscence about markson and their antics together. I hope all of y’all enjoy! 

Also, please remember that these are my own personal opinions and that they shouldn’t be taken literally or seriously. But if you ever wanna come talk markson with me, I’m always ready :) ((Note: All gifs should be linked directly but videos and pictures with have physical links above them because I’m not sure how to link those to their respective tumblrs– if your post is here and you want your content removed bc you don’t like the linking, msg me and I’ll take it down.)) I’m a litlle late but here we go!!


1. This was one of the ones I already had in mind ;) I just love it bc it’s such a weird situation to be in but Mark, ever the gentleman, just takes it in stride and keeps his hands to himself. I love how near Jackson gets to Mark and if that isn’t the simplest testament of how (pun coming) close they are, I don’t know what is. In all honesty, if Mark really wanted out, a simple hand on the back or a squeeze on the shoulder or even just shifting out of the way would have sufficed but he stays and although his face is stoic, his eyes are constantly on Jackson. LOVE IT!

I personally think jumping around puts a smile on most peoples faces and if other people, friends, are doing it with you, then there’s no way that isn’t going to make you shine. SO, jumping+BFF+concert adrenaline+love= BIG A__ SMILES !! Oh they’re also cuties so there’s that factor too.

3. TBH I GOT DISTRACTED WITH THIS ONE AND REWATCHED THIS SECTION OF THE REAL GOT7– anyways…THIS IS PROBS MY ALL-TIME FAVE, THAT I FORGOT ABOUT. So the whole episode itself was hilarious with got7 and we got some markson moments sprinkled in but THIS, THIS takes the cake. I mean who doesn’t want to see their otp get this close to kissing? I love Mark’s hands cradling the back of Jackson’s head. I’d like to believe that Jackson stretched his neck up a bit more when Mark touched the other side of the paper but I’m not sure in this gif bc its quick (maybe I’ll add another one after I publish this). Like omg still can’t believe this happened though :D

4.  Ok all the Got2Day Vapp stuff was gold and I loved the fact that we got to see everyone but of course my faves Mark and Jackson had the best one ;) It was cute and relaxed and I just love them in light/soft colors. Also #no#personal#space !! The video is just a short moment but it is super cute and I love them smiling at eachother bc heart palpitations~ OH but the second gif is MY FAVORITE bc it’s Mark just watching Jackson talk and he just looks so content and caring and its just one of those moments ok

5. I could rant FOR YEARS about this but idk if tumblr has a character limit or no.. BUT SERIOUSLY THIS IS JUST ICONIC!! It was actually the 1st to pop into my mind bc it was my icon (no joke for that one sorry) for a month I think? ANYWHO, I just straight up love this. They’re close. Jackson’s shirtless. Said Jackson is pressed along Mark’s backside. Said Mark is very very very smiley. Like Jackson could’ve chosen someone else- JB was kinda close I think- but he chose bae and got all up in bae’s business. And the fact that he’s partially restraining Mark? Keeping him flush with his body and leaning in to talk to him? My heart cannot keep up, this some tachycardia **** right here omg seriously!! Is it hot for anyone else in here or is it just them? *wink*

6. GO WATCH THE VIDEO PLEASE. Like the caption is spot on in my mind and I couldn’t agree more on the fact that it looked like Jackson was going to do something intimate and then he hesitated and looked at the camera!! UGH. seriously a fave moment bc its like what were you gonna do? huh?! You can’t not agree with the fact that that boy was playing around behind Mark. And then there’s Mark’s small smile and that little thing he does with his mouth, which reminded me of someone keeping a smirk in check. Oooooh there’s def something going on there and I wish I knew what it was!!

7. ANOTHER VIDEO!! 9/10 markson shippers should remember this badboy right here. I don’t even remember what video this moment came from but even if I see a still I freak out bc this is literal gold. One of the best shows of touchy!Mark and cuddly!Jackson ever. Seriously, Mark kept putting his hands on Jackson and moving subtly, and then he even has the nerve to lean into Jackson further to whisper something-BOY!! And then there’s Jackson who decides it’s perfectly ok to rest his head on Mark’s chest all casual like he’s done it a thousand times before. And one moment I really love to see is Jackson noticing Mark plating with J’s bracelet, looking at him, and then Mark moves his hand away so quickly like he’s been caught. its cute. don’t fight me on this. Also I got newly-dating vibes from this: not sure how much actual touching is safe, leaning into one another, glued at the hip, private jokes. Markson or never ;) I’ll add a gif when I find one!

8. This picture satisfies like 3 things from my otp goggles-on checklist: smiling towards the other, touching, and suggestive posturing. Don’t tell me that this doesn’t look like Jackson’s about to pull Mark in and plant one on him! The positioning of Jackson’s hands make me wanna punch something bc who puts their hands there unless its for a headbutt or a kiss?? And lemme tell you that I’m 99% sure that he’s not about to headbutt Mark. (ALSO ARMS 4 DAYS JACKSON OVER HERE #hot hot hot) Back to the smiling and touching and pose- they’re close for one thing, and then Mark’s about to go into hug mode, there’s full eye contact going on, and what a beautiful smile!! It seems so loving and happy that I just can’t deal with them rn. I have a link to a gif, Jackson jumping into Mark’s arms :) , so I’ll add that in later!

9. Ok but I really think they fit together so well sometimes~ Like their heights aren’t monumentally different but it’s enough that they look good together. SO there’s that sly BUTT tap and then the blessed hand moves up to the lower back (i like ur style boy) and eventually falls off the waist when they stop in front of the fans. Mark is totally guiding Jackson here and it seems like he’s 100% a-ok with it. Oh and there’s definitely some smiles going on here! I wish we had more concerts but the fanmeets are still great but there’s something about concerts that really let otps shine.

10. VIDEO— ITS THE FINAL ONE Y’ALL AND ITS A FAVE BC I’VE BROUGHT IT UP A FEW TIMES. (lol I still get pissed every time I remember that I posted the screenshots on my old baeksoo account instead of this one but oh whale:) ) anyways I just love love love this bc it was so fleeting but so memorable. I know Mark was running around messing with everyone during this time (and that he did something similar to JB) but this was something special for Jackson. There was NO SPACE between them and their heads were so so so close. And then there were lots of giggles and smiling and DID YOU NOTICE THAT JACKSON HITCHED HIS LEG UP WHICH IN TURN BROUGHT MARK’S LEG HIGHER AND BY DEDUCTION, THEIR HIPS CLOSER?? bc I did. bc I know that. and it’s true. AND THEN AS MARK (the little tease) LEFT, JACKSON TRIED TO KEEP HIM THERE!! GRABBED AT HIS WAIST!!  I just want to know what on earth was going through Mark’s head when he decided to go and lay flush against his group member. seriously tho. but 11/10 would recommend them recreating this, in the presence of a solid 1080p filming camera preferably.

There is this trend on Film/Comicbook Twitter where people are actually accusing DCEU fans of being white boy Trump Supporters who are naturally members of the alt right.

Yes really.  For starters there are many DCEU fans of various races, religions, and genders. And I have yet to encounter a single one who supports Trump. Not even the cisgendered heterosexual white guys.

And second, why the fuck would anyone from the alt-right would like the DCEU anyways?  The DCEU has:

A cast of racially diverse actors/actresses who aren’t just sidekicks to the white male lead.

Three iconic characters(Lex Luthor, Barry Allen, Wonder Woman) being played by Jewish actors that I can think of right on top of my head.

Women of all races playing major roles in this universe and are not the disposable girlfriend.  There’s three movies planned that will feature female leads.  One of them is coming out next week.

Hell even the cisgendered white male actors don’t always conform to what many alt right guys are comfortable with.  I can’t imagine Richard Spencer being able to casually make jokes about fucking his male costar the way Ben and Henry did during the BvS promo tour.

And many of the cast members aren’t Trump Supporters either.

Look I get not liking a franchise. There are franchises I don’t care for. But trying to present people who like what you hate as a part of a group that would despise the majority of the actual fanbase is beyond the pale.  Not everyone will hate what you hate. Not everyone will like what you like. Grow the fuck up.

the phrase, “Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya” is one of the most iconic figures of speech in the english language. There’s no good comeback to that, the level of disdain and folksy charm, with that certain je ne sais quoi, makes it completely unparalleled as a Sick Burn and certainly superior to the lesser, “don’t let the door hit you on the way out”
