this-just-makes-me-really-happy

I feel like animation classes would do super well in eventually including The Peanuts Movie and Captain Underpants in future curriculum because watching clips of them feels… I wanna say “heartwarming” is the closest approximation to this emotion? It’s just the way they manage to stay so INCREDIBLY faithful to the source style and give it the life and energy it deserves (the slow, choppy retro style of The Peanuts Movie to mimic the old TV Movies, and the hectic and bouncy style of Captain Underpants to match the unfettered irreverence of the books)

It just makes me really happy and I feel like it’s worth celebrating even from just a technical standpoint.

okay but like. remember when someone took red beanies to a book signing and got dan and phil to wear them and the blurry pictures taken from a distance were everywhere because beanies. remember when dan apologised every time his hair was even the slightest bit curly. remember when he’d insist he looked absolutely terrible when a fan told him otherwise. and now dan just casually did a liveshow in a pastel beanie with his hobbit hair. like it’s not the biggest deal but he just looked really soft and comfortable and happy and it makes me feel all warm inside and i’m just really grateful for dan howell

One of the things that makes me happy about Brooklyn 99 is the frequency and normalcy with which they refer to Holt’s husband. “What sort of cute names do you call your husband?” “My husband’s dog” “He’s worried we’re going to embarrass him in front of his husband.”

Idk I just really like how comfortable everyone is with it, not in a ‘not making a big deal of it’ way I mean like…making enough of a deal of it. They’re married. They’re married. And that’s something that’s been denied to gay people for so long, and something that’s still denied to gay people in my country, and it just makes me really happy in a warm&fuzzy kinda way to see them normalising that at the same time as celebrating it.

hey im marley ; im latino + native and a minor who is unable to get a job atm and i live with my mom; we’re very poor and struggle with money all the time and since our dryer broke, my mom has to pay for it meaning we might not have enough money for food for the next couple weeks. i just need money for food and maybe clothes as well, and just one dollar will make me really happy, i can even do sketches for those who donate like $5-8

please reblog this it would mean so much to me if you did

so Enjolras was hit by 8 bullets right and that’s one for every one of the Amis that died. that obviously excludes Marius because he lived and it excludes Enjolras himself. in other words, Grantaire is included in those 8. in the end, the death of each Amis hits Enjolras equally. in the end, Grantaire means just as much to Enjolras as any of the others did. it just means a lot to me that in death Grantaire is finally valued for his loyalty and bravery and is just as vital a member of the Amis as anyone else

What podcasts I listen to

This is a post that most likely no one cares about since I shitpost whatever I’m into but I wanna get my thoughts about the podcasts I listen to regularly and what I feel about them. 


Welcome to Night Vale - This is the one that got me into podcasts although it scared me at first. I managed to listen to 60 episodes in almost a week so I was pretty hooked. This is about a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful and mysterious lights pass while we all pretend to sleep. It’s set in a H P Lovecraft style of world where the scariest of things are seen as the most normal of things. Things change when a beautiful stranger comes to town but you’ll fall in love instantly. Episodes come out the 1st and 15th of each month

Alice Isn’t Dead - This is done by the same company that does Night Vale and it’s a lot darker and creepier. It is about a truck driver who drives around the country trying to find her wife Alice while discovering things about the towns she goes past. A warning if you don’t deal with gore or violence very well (also spoilers) someone does get murdered in the first episode and the main character does get attacked in a later episode. This show is only done by Joseph Fink and his style is a little scary at times but it’s still good. I recommend binge listening to the first season before the second one comes out because it’s a little easier to keep up with the story that way. I prefer Night Vale over Alice but that’s just a personal opinion. Episodes will continue when the next season starts. 

Wolf 359 - This is one of my favourite podcasts I have ever listened to. Written by Gabriel Urbina, it’s about Doug Eiffel’s life on the Hephaestus Research Station as they orbit the red dwarf star Wolf 359. This a podcast you’ll want more of and you’ll want to know every single plot twist and theory. The characters are loveable and it just makes me really happy. Renee Minkowski is the station’s commander and she makes sure that her boys stay in check (mostly Eiffel). Dr. Hilbert is honestly a little creepy but you can’t hate him and HERA is my computer wife. Every storyline is great and will only keep you guessing. The website also has other cool stuff such as playlists for the characters which are on spotify and there are small little things that are fantastic. The early seasons are very lighthearted and Zach Valenti (@iamzachvalenti) voices both Doug and Hilbert and it’s just fantastic to listen to. Episodes come out every two weeks.

Limetown - Limetown is very different compared to the other podcasts. It’s a news report that follows a reporter, Lia Haddock, as she tries to find out what happened to an entire town of people that just vanished into thin air. The length of the episodes span under 10 minutes to nearly an hour. It’s interesting but Lia is kinda annoying with her methods of obtaining the information she desires but her intentions are in the right place, despite her actions getting innocent people hurt. The podcast kinda stopped in December last year so it’s real easy to listen to but you will want more which is disappointing since you want to know what happens in the next season. It takes a very realistic turn of events so who knows when the next season comes out. If you like realistic podcasts then this is the one for you 

The Bright Sessions - Another personal favourite of mine and I no joke want more right now. The only way I can describe the podcast without spoiling it is X-men go to therapy. It’s an actual pleasure to listen to and it keeps you hooked. Lauren Shippen  (@thelaurenshippen)  has created something thats actually beautiful and has created characters who are relatable in every way. Sam is a time traveller with anxiety, Caleb is a high school student who can feel others emotions, Chloe thinks she’s going insane with the voices of angels then there is a mysterious character who I shall not name. It’s defiantly worth a listen and it’s an A++ podcast. The website also has things that are unique to each person. Sam has a blog, Caleb has instagram and playlists of his own and Chloe has tumblr. This is no joke something I want to make in the future so it’s amazing to me. New episode dates will be released with the new episodes. 

King Falls AM - This is like Night Vale but less creepy and more paranormal. The main characters are Sammy “Shotgun” Stevens and Ben Arnold who host a  late night call in show. I can only imagine this like Night Vale because of the similar format but they are completely different. King Falls AM is what Night Vale would be if the town normal and unusual things aren’t normal. The characters are really loveable and I just love them so much. There are people you will love to hate and it definitely makes you feel like you are a citizen of the town which is great. It brings a sense of community to the small fandom. I want to say more but it’s very spoilery so I will say no more. It’s worth the listen to and I recommend binge listening to this one, trust me you’ll want to. New episodes come out the 1st and 15th of each month. 

EOS 10 - I’ll admit that I haven’t finished this podcast but I don’t think they’ve made new episodes since last year?????? (it was December so I wasn’t wrong). The story follows Ryan Dalias arriving on EOS 10 to check up on the doctor on the ship who has been going through his share of addiction. From what I’ve listened from this, it’s not bad but not my cup of tea. Scifi podcasts don’t work for me but I still enjoy this quite a bit. Warning if you aren’t interested in hearing people do the frick frack then there is a part of episode 3 that you’ll want to skip because it’s a little uncomfortable. The first two seasons are out and god knows when the next season will be available. 

Within the Wires - This is another one done by Night Vale presents. Within the Wires is written by Jeffrey Cranor and the story is based through a series of standard relaxation tapes where you soon realise that yours aren’t standard. The woman on the to the main character and you slowly figure out what that connection is. The tapes themselves are a little creepy but they are sort of relaxing at the same time. Season two may be different and possibly might not be relaxation tapes but that’s the exciting thing about it. I personally prefer this podcast to Alice because I can listen to this and not feel scared when I’m trying to sleep. This one just creeps me out opposed to scaring me so I stay awake. I wouldn’t listen to this before bed though. I recommend to listen to this on a really long road trip because that’s the most comfortable I felt when I heard it. New episodes will come out when the new season does. 

ars PARADOXICA - Imagine if you had accidentally created time travel and you find yourself in 1942 in the middle of the second world war. That’s what Sally Grisham does and she soon discovers that her time travel only goes back so she attempts to find a way to go back to her own time which is a little difficult with only technology from the early 40′s. I’ll be honest, I did really like this podcast when I first started it but the last 4 episodes make me question if I actually want to continue it. The latest episode makes me think that I could continue it. They do give warnings about gun violence and terrible things happening to kids which made me super uncomfortable but the warning was nice. New episodes come out the 1st of each month

The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air) - Yet another Night Vale presents project but it’s not written by Joseph or Jeffrey. The story follows the janitor Juilen as he tries to get into the show without getting caught. The podcast is set on top of the Eiffel tower and the most magical things happen such as a bird who can recreate a whole orchestra perfectly and a machine that can make the thoughts of a cricket come to life. There are only four episodes so far but it’s pretty good so far. The janitor is my favourite and he just shares stories about his life that only make me want to get to know him better which is nice. The french accents also make me really happy. New episodes come out every other Wednesday and I high recommend it.

I wanted to make this in case anyone was interested with what I was listening to and I would like recommendations with podcasts because I’m always looking for new podcasts to listen to

Honestly I think my favorite part of Gotham making Oswald queer is that he’s not a minor character. Usually in comic-book based shows the queer character, if there even is one, is some minor comic villain or hero, or just a made up character. Penguin, however, is a major villain to the point that even though some people never read the comics they know the characters the Penguin and the Riddler. These two are two of the most famous Batman villains. And the fact that gotham makes it explicit that penguin is romantically interested in Riddler, making an iconic character queer, is honestly pretty damn cool

My favorite of your Muslimah ocs is the Bee ๐Ÿ one because she's short, brown, chubby, and wears glasses and it's freaking precious and I'm short and Latina and chubby with glasses and it just makes me really happy to see chubby characters and brown characters and the fact that she's Muslimah is great, even if I'm not.

I’m so happy you love and relate to her!! you and her are bee-utiful!!  she’s actually my fav to draw

you know what makes me really happy? girls talking openly about liking girls. like you have no idea how many girls i’ve met that talk about how pretty other girls are, they sometimes even talk about how attractive some celebrities are and that it makes them question their sexuality in a serious way. girls talking about how beautiful girls are just makes me really happy.
