In a crystal clear example of an artist who has the full support of his label and team, and one who doesnt:
Today, we got Niall on a fantastic Billboard cover with an equally great interview and photospread where his songwriting and attributes as an artist got massive endorsements from industry heavyweights.
Meanwhile, we also get a Louis piece, but this time in the trash tabloid, The Sun, with a headline featuring his “girlfriend” and her dog, to promote his new music video. His team couldn’t even give him the courtesy of his OWN headline, and his SOLO photos for his OWN video. They really had to bring his beard in.
What a disservice to Louis, and a real illustration of how shitty his press and promo continue to be.
SJPR can do quality stuff like this for Niall and make sure he has no bad press, but does the opposite for Louis? How deliberate.
The only thing on my mind today was Andrew Minyard and his mocking salute.
It’s super shaky, messy, and rough and the quality sucks sooo bad (I’m sincerely sorry for that, I had insane trouble with the size and resizing, it’s super annoying plus tumblr loves to screw the quality) but anyway.
Now I really wanna animate a few scenes from the books (will only take a life time but whatevs, do I have something better to do with my life ? Yes definitely..but do I care? No.).
Also, thank you for 200 followers and welcome to the fandom who ever just discovered it!!
Boyang Jin’s free skate at Chinese National Team’s test skates on 10 February 2017, where he landed 5 quads (4Lz3T, 4S, 4Lo, 4T, 4T2T). It is unknown whether he plans to attempt this layout for the remainder of the season. [x]
I got a few asks about this picture. Sorry, the lighting was very bad in the exhibition and this picture was small. I had to zoom in all the way as they taped off this area and we could not get close. There was a desk where I assume Mashima sat (or was a recreation), and there was a video recording of him actually drawing this (which was really cool). This is the best quality I could take. Hopefully the actual picture will be released sometime or someone else managed to take a better photo.

The internet’s recent hate‐boner for Andromeda is really bumming me out. It’s not even that people think it’s a bad game (the trial seemed fantastic to me); it’s for nonsense like facial animations.
How has that even become a thing? Who gives a shit? I have literally never once changed my opinion on any video game I’ve ever played in my life based on the criteria of Facial Animation Quality. That’s such a weird cause for a hatedom to develop.
I’m not trying to be a fangirl, here, there are valid complaints—bad character creator and a downright painful UI come to mind—but how does that equal “BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT SINCE NO MAN’S SKY, 0/10”? :/
BioWare games are about the characters and world‐building, and both seem top‐notch in Andromeda so far. For any other company, this would barely spark a “rocky start for otherwise great game” headline. People just seem to have it out for BioWare.
Gifset of TaeKook playing
with and touching each other’s hair for anon
Anonymous said: Idk if u can but a gifset of taekook playing with each other’s hair will set me on fire and thank you 😍❤❤❤
I put some “just touching hair” too, because finding Jungkook actually playing with Taehyung’s hair was a bit difficult. Maybe because Jungkook’s always soft with Taehyung hihi. But I really hope you enjoy! And really sorry for my bad quality gifs. Also, the v app videos are not in HD :c
My Top 5 fave Magnus Bane Fanvids (1st half of 2017 Edition)
What can I say? Getting the right Magnus fanvid can be the saving grace of a long and shitty day.
1. And no, it’s not just because @latinalightwoodowns my heart. This is some really good shitttttt right here.
2. Sure there’s some Malec in there (not like I’m complaining) but it doesn’t take away from the fact that @malecwingscreated a real masterpiece and a perfect Magnus Bane video.
3. Who do I have to sacrifice to get @xbeautifulyumexto make us moreeeee Magnus masterpieces? 2B is almost here. Please put me out of my misery!
4. Come on, Bad Reputation was made for Magnus, it has his name written all over it and this video is perfect. Absolutely perfect. Hahahahahahaha.
5. Goddamn this vid gave me the chills. Scenes on point, music on point, editing on point, goddamn this entire video is on point.
I just want to say a huge thank you to fanviders. Y’all put in so much work and you bring us some high quality shiiiiiiit. Really, thank you, whether you’ve got only one subscriber or a million, you’re awesome and you’re doing God’s work and we might not say it often, but we sure as hell appreciate the work you do. Bless.
