idk how people can’t grasp the concept that you can like something - be it a show, a book, or something else - and still see its flaws enough to point them out. like??? blindly loving something and attacking people who love it but still have mind enough to recognize it has problematic elements doesn’t make you a better fan, it just makes you a hiveminded idiot who can’t take rightful criticism. 

reasons why cool hot sweet love is superior:

  • lit
  • follows the style of be natural and automatic
  • the dance is better (although i do like dance line solos in ootn)
  • the stage outfits are 100% better
  • still showcases their vocals beautifully
  • again (and i cannot stress this enough) a more even line distribution
  • the potential for amazing dance breaks are limitless?? and sm just threw that away
  • no seriously imagine a mash up of be natural to automatic to chsl IMAGINE IT
  • would’ve been better received after the initial listen (i found ootn to be a song people had to warm up to first)
  • still shows red velvet’s maturity and musical diversity
  • would’ve probably been performed at award shows along with russian roulette but thats just my opinion™

Do you think Rihanna's gonna make another single from ANTI? cause desperado and sex with me definetely needs to be singles. ALSO SHE NEEDS TO PERFORM KISS IT BETTER ON GRAMMYS. We all had enough performances from LOTB and she cancelled 80s talk show themed kiss it better performance on this year's grammy so she needs to do it right this time. also KIB got grammy nomination so... lol.

I think ”Sex With Me” would be good for urban radio just like ”Needed Me” was. NM actually did great with mainstream, it was #7 on BBH100. I didn’t expect it to get Top 10 + it was Rih’s longest-charting hit! Some fans think she needs to put out a video for LOTB, but her hands are tied up w/ Ocean’s 8’s, so I don’t think she’ll get around to that.


Once, when his uncles asked him what gift he wanted for his nameday, he begged them for a dragon. “It wouldn’t need to be a big one. It could be little, like I am.” His uncle Gerion thought that was the funniest thing he had ever heard, but his uncle Tygett said, “The last dragon died a century ago, lad.” That had seemed so monstrously unfair that the boy had cried himself to sleep that night.

dan is good because dan acknowledges times he’s done something that might not have been 100% okay. like unlisting his ‘men vs woman’ video and changing the thumbnail of his ‘let’s get physical’ video from the lesser-dressed woman to just himself. dan is getting better and better and i feel really humbled to know he thinks about things like that and his tweets of support about lgbt and gender issues etc after the oscars and openly saying he’s a feminist in his live show idk it makes me so happy that he uses his online fame and his social media platforms for good. he’s come a long, long way over the last six years. the dude gets it. 

it’s always sunny in philadelphia is not “a great show” because it makes racism/sexism/transphobia/ableism etc etc funny. if you think that’s what it’s doing and that “they give zero fucks” about offending people, you are very very wrong.

it’s always sunny in philadelphia is a great show because it flips comedy on its head. instead of making us laugh at marginalized people, it makes racist/sexist/transphobic/ableist people the butt of the joke. EVERY. TIME. and those marginalized people who would have been made fun of in other “comedies” are actually really well-developed and established characters.


David Tennant and The Proclaimers

Spanning David’s first meeting with the Proclaimers to them presenting him with a special National Television Award.

Excerpt from the Graham Norton Show “Uncut” (April 2007)

Graham Norton:  You were in a fantastic video, the Proclaimers video
David Tennant:  I was
GN:  …and of course the Proclaimers are going to be playing for us in a few moments. They’re here.  The Proclaimers are in the building.  Was it all filmed in one day?
DT:  No!  I got a phone call… Matt Lucas phoned me up and said, “I’m gonna do this thing.”  He knew I’m a big Proclaimers fan.  He said, “Oh come along.  Join in.”  I said of course I will! I’ll get to meet the Proclaimers! But they’d been and gone when I turned up!  They’d filmed their bit, and I’m just stuck with Johnny Ball and Rod, Jane, and Freddie up the back!  And Dusty Bin.  Not that there’s anything wrong with them, they’re lovely people (especially Dusty Bin), but I was devastated.  So to find that tonight I might actually get to meet the Proclaimers… I’m a little bit over-excited.
GN: I hate to break it to you, but we did tape them in the afternoon.  They’re not here.
DT: <long pause> I wouldn’t have a sense of humor about that.
GN: They are here, they are here.  Don’t worry.

i kind of really love how comparitively mediocre yuri is?

like hes going for THE big deal skating competition after having completely messed up the year before. and yeah, he does really awesome and still makes it into finals, but like, you KNOW most sports anime would have had him magically be placing first in each competition

but instead, he just barely squeaks through to finals. the people he’s against are GOOD, and definitely worthy of being there. instead of going the lazy route and having yuri suddenly become the best of the best after only a few months of training with victor, he’s simply noticeably better than he was the previous season. and in the context of the show, thats FANTASTIC. so what he didnt get first? he’s still WAY better than before, and the other skaters take him more seriously now.

tbh thats both way more realistic and a way healthier way to be depicting a sport like this. it doesnt matter as much if youre #1, it just matters if you improve

I’ve noticed that being chronically ill gets old for the people around you real quick

at first they show concern and send you well meaning “hope you get better” messages etc. but when it lasts longer than a few months, when it’s obvious it isn’t going away, most of them stop checking on you. I guess it’s just depressing to always hear that someone isn’t getting better, so they don’t bother. 

only a few people bother to ask how I’m feeling, which means a lot. it’s a lot better than being asked when you’re going to be better.

so, pro tip. if you have a chronically ill friend/family member etc, please refrain from saying “get better soon!” etc. try to ask how they’re feeling, if there’s anything you can do, and hope that they find some relief.
