viewing device



My third film after Point Five and Jealous Gods. It’s in 3D, select side by side mode on any 3D viewing device to watch it in its intended form. Otherwise, just watch one side of it and ignore the other.


Honestly, being able to effectively stream the comeback MV is just as important as streaming on music app. Not only does the view gets counted towards Music Show wins, being able to reach a certain number of views generates positive news for the album and for Bangtan. Let’s try our best for this too~

  • Do not re-upload the videos on any other sites. Reupload means, you download it as video and then reupload it on your own page or channel. This will take away views from the official MV.
  • YOU NEED TO WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO. DO NOT MUTE. Plug in earphones on the device if you’re getting tired hehe~
  • Share the link on all your social media accounts, clicks from shared links will count as a view. Ask some of your friends!!! 
  • If you have a youtube account, use it to like, comment and share the video. But multiple views are more effective if you log out of the account or in incognito mode.
  • WATCH BOTH MVs ON 1THEK and iBIGHIT channel. 
  • Watching in incognito mode counts best, go to the youtube page and search for the MV title and click the link.
  • Multiple tabs doesn’t count
  • Create a playlist than has a total playing time of more than 30 minutes, please add DOPE and FIRE MVs (frm 1theK channel) to also help increase the views on those MVs.
  • Switch devices from time to time. PC then mobile or vice-versa.
  • After about every 5-6 hours, clear your cache.

There are a lot of different information on how to view MVs effectively just some things to keep in mind.

  • Youtube tracks your view based on your IP address. If you view the video once, it counts and then youtube kind of IDs your IP on their system.
  • Then they have preventive measures for bots or programs who can manipulate this view count, so if youtube identifies your IP address as viewing a specific link over and over in a SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, it will treat it as spam and invalidate these views.
  • That’s why you create a playlist so you can watch other videos and your IP won’t register as watching the same thing once you go back to the comeback MV link.

ARMYs please do share your best practices as replies below!!! We might have varying techniques on this. What is important is that you make sure that your view counts!!! Thank you~~~ ^_^

Lemony Snicket observes Rhink

Dear Reader,

Though it is my solemn duty to document the tormented romance of the two men you see before you, there is no reason you should subject yourself to misery and woe of this channel.

I urge you, while your eyes are not clouded by uncontrollable grief, to pause and unsubscribe - before you indulge in even a second of the torturous pain you are about to see. It’s not too late to watch another video featuring simpler, happier things, but if you choose to watch on I can assure you only frustration, unfulfilled love, and awful food awaits you.

I myself have spent days weeping into the waters of Buies Creek, where I find myself researching the lives of the Neals and Mclaughlins. The depths of the unfortunate circumstances that haunt these two men even now keeps me up at night, and my only hope is you do not suffer the same fate. So as you read this I implore you to pause for thought, before promptly throwing your viewing device off the nearest high surface. 

Of course, there are many things that would make one pause for thought. For instance, a school of sharks might have you pause for thought as you question the wisdom of dipping your toes in the water, or a look on a teacher’s face may have you pause for thought as you question where you went wrong. But nothing, in all my years of research, has ever made me pause for thought like the look of despair on Rhett and Link’s weary faces.

I have concluded while examining the history of these entertainers, that the two men sitting behind the custom built desk are soulmates - a word which here means; long-suffering and deeply, deeply in love. It is a tale that reminds me, whenever I am witness to the dismal display, of my own beloved Beatrice, and I am sorry to say neither story has a happy ending. 

I leave this letter taped to the underside of the Harnett Central bleachers, in the hope that my editor finds it safe and delivers this message to the wider public.

You could still enjoy a happy little clip of a laughing goat. 

Yours sincerely,

Lemony Snicket

Note: If you aren’t familiar with Lemony Snicket or Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate events this will have made absolutely no sense and look really freaking weird. It’s weird anyway but… yeah. 


I had a great time at the screening and panel! So lovely seeing our favorites in person. The sad news is that recording devices were not allowed. And they were monitoring the audience, but I did manage to sneak a few videos. I’ll try to upload them before I get on the plane home. Please forgive the shakiness and wonky angles, I was trying to keep my camera from view of the recording devices police as they patrolled.

(I have a lot of asks, if I can get to it before I lose internet, I will, otherwise I’ll answer later. I’ll try to put everything with a 6x11 spoiler under a cut.)

If you embed images on AO3, you might have noticed that wide images like covers extend past the screen width on smaller mobile devices. To view the whole image, a reader has to scroll to the right.

There’s an easy fix for this. Go to Skins –> My Work Skins –> Create Work Skin (or edit your existing skin). Enter the following:

#workskin img {
  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;

This sets your image’s maximum possible width as the width of the element that contains it. So if the image is 800px wide, but its parent is just 600px wide, the image will adjust to fit. Setting the height to adjust automatically ensures the image ratio is maintained. 

Bulk-apply the work skin or just edit the fics with embedded art. If you need help with this, let me know!

ETA: I edited the explanation for why this works so it was more precise, but I wanted to say you can also use this technique on your tumblr theme, if you have elements that extend past their parents. You might have to play around to get it working. Feel free to message me if you get stuck.

sorry this is at that anon not you, but Lena single-handedly saved the entire alien population of National City and then worked her ass off to help Supergirl find the missing & soon to be deported aliens? she may be of a xenophobic family and she may have held prejudiced views but since that device she's shown herself to be nothing but pro-alien imo.

I would also love a well handled story of Lena having some of those xenophobic beliefs because, like it or not, people do pick up some of the thinking patterns they’re raised in. Everyone is bigoted about something at some point, and it takes active, conscious effort to confront and unlearn that sort of thing. It took me years to unlearn homophobic thinking patterns - even while I was in relationships with other girls. You can’t always control your first thought, but you can control your response to it. Lilian and Lena might have the same first thought (aliens are something to fear and hate), but they make very different choices in their reactions to that thought (let’s kill them all vs but they still have a right to exist equally).

We don’t need perfect characters that never mess up, just characters that try to be better than who they used to be.

What does your url mean?

It doesn’t really have a meaning, i was looking for urls to change my old URL which was issue8 and I tried to type in something else and auto correct changed it to Sovd and I really liked it so I changed my URL. I just found out it’s an acronym for Stabilized Optical Viewing Device.. 😅😅

deadbeat-princess  asked:

Your art is so cute I have a quick question because I'm in serious need of help have you ever heard of or used medibang to draw? I'm having a problem with the colors on my laptop not being the same when viewed on other devices like my friends laptop or my phone et. And I'm not sure if it's my laptop or the program and idk how to fix it either way TAT

Thank you dear✿~ I’m sorry, I wish I could help but I have never used medibang before. Maybe you can first check the color contrast & brightness of your laptop display to see if it is in the default setting? Any fellow artists here know about/use medibang?


1855 John Stull Stereo Viewer Double Dag Daguerreotype Quarter Plate

A stereoscope is a device for viewing a stereoscopic pair of separate images, depicting left-eye and right-eye views of the same scene, as a single three-dimensional image.

Two separate images are printed side-by-side. When viewed without a stereoscopic viewer the user is required to force his eyes either to cross, or to diverge, so that the two images appear to be three. Then as each eye sees a different image, the effect of depth is achieved in the central image of the three.

Embossed United States of America, Patented by John Stull Feb. 27, 1855. Orders furnished to any part of the United States or in Europe by the patentee S.W. Corner 6th 8 Chestnut St. Philadelphia, PA, green cover with gold embossing, Item is complete and comes with a rare stereo dag of a beautiful young girl in period clothes


Deutsche Telekom - The Lenz App

By partnering with Gorillaz for these two mixed reality apps, Deutsche Telekom shows the power of its network to host such experiences and creates strong brand association whenever people see its signature colour. 

Electronic Beats, Deutsche Telekom’s music and lifestyle division, has partnered with virtual band Gorillaz to promote their forthcoming album, Humanz.The partnership includes the launch of two augmented reality apps that provide fans with content about the band.The Lenz app turns Deutsche Telekom’s brand colour – magenta – into a canvas for digital content.

The app uses chroma keying, which also powers green screen technology in the film industry. Whenever users open the Lenz app and point their device’s camera at something magenta – a wall, a t-shirt etc – the object, when viewed through the device, becomes a screen onto which Gorillaz content, such as artwork, videos and new music, is projected.

✨Where I&I left off with my latest painting today. Acrylic on canvas board. No editing. Let the transformation begin within.✨🎨✨ Psychedelic healing hand blessing this Planet and all beings with LOVE in this N:0W!!!! Turn up the brightness on your device to view this image captured in island sunshine and tune into this portal of divine bliss purifying every cell within your being. We are magical creatures with a purpose. Living channels of divine light flowing through us as ONE. Honored to be your reflection. Mahalo from the third eye chakra of Kaua'i.✨🌈✨

Okay, so apparently the YouTube version is blocked in some countries or is not able to be viewed on mobile devices, so for all of those who cant view it on the YouTube link I’ve shared, you can watch it here!

Hatters if you could Reblog/Share that would be great!:D

Reasons I love I Wanna Dance With Somebody from Irving Plaza:

I am still not over this show…. sorry, not sorry…

Here are all the reasons I loved this performance featuring Carrie Manolakos at Irving Plaza (in no particular order)

  1. The cute little hand motion he makes at 0:37 “loneliness calls”
  2. Anyone else catch the “Mmmm” at 0:50 (reminds me of the Mmmm from the TMOLM performance)
  3. THE DANCING that starts at 1:19 and just continues the entire song (Side note: My friends who are watching BrainDead are like omg his dancing and I’m like guys… it’s legit.)
  4. Aaron acknowledging someone in the VIP section with the point and wave at 1:33!
  5. The “hold me in his arms …. I need a man” part at 2:00 - his faces and motions are hilarious!
  6. The recording stopped but after this he mentioned something like: “Well now you guys know how I dance at weddings” and he looked at the section his friends and family were in and was like “ you guys already knew how I danced at weddings”. Too. Friggin. Cute.
  7. How much fun he had with this song!
  8. How his hair gets totally destroyed during this song!

Video taken on my iPhone so it may be better viewed on your mobile device!

Also, apologies for the shakiness of the video… I may or may not have been totally dancing! :)

As always, let me know if you guys want something specific from Irving Plaza! Love all your questions/comments!

Xoxoxo- A

anonymous asked:

I'd love to hear your thoughts on how fiction can best be feminist/your favourite feminist (or just not sexist) fiction (especially bc it's national novel writing month)

When it comes to how fiction can be “feminist”, it’s honestly not as difficult as people make it out to be. The only reason why we seem to have such trouble with it is because people are conditioned to view women as plot devices, not people. Once they’ve served their purpose, they’re cast aside until they’re useful again. So I guess I would say that some of the easiest ways to make sure that your fiction is “feminist” (or at the very least, not problematic) is to

  • Include diverse characters, which is honestly waaaay easier than people think. Instead of making everyone white/straight, bring in people of different ethnicities/races/genders/sexualities, etc. and just treat them as people. If you’re not sure how to write people with different identities as you, consult people who are of the identities that you plan to write about and allow them to help guide you to a non offensive portrayal (some easy ways to do that are to ask what parts of their identities shape them the most, their speaking mannerisms, how they view the world as opposed to how you view it, etc).
  • Think about the implications/repercussions of certain storylines. For example, do you REALLY have to kill the protagonist’s mother/girlfriend/daughter/female mentor? Fridging women is a cheap tactic to elicit emotion from your reader and I encourage you to explore other ways to evoke sympathy or sadness. In the end, it’ll make your writing stronger since you’re not relying on shock value to pack an emotional punch. 
  • Be careful who you’re vilifying. Is your villain a marginalized identity, or coded that way? Why is that? Is there a real reason for your villain to be coded as a PoC or as a gay person? Or is it just because in your quest to include more diversity, you accidentally gave all the negative traits to the character with the flamboyant style and effeminate voice? Obviously, this isn’t to say that marginalized people can’t ever be cast as villains, but if you only have one PoC in your story and they happen to be the villain, maybe reconsider. 
  • This goes hand in hand with the last point, but stop overly punishing your marginalized characters. With this one, I’m no longer referring to villains, but your protagonists or characters on your protagonist’s side. For example, is your one Black character currently dealing with the death of her brother, a severe injury, emotional trauma from an abusive relationship, recent homelessness, and a sudden deadly disease? If she is, definitely dial it back because you’re unintentionally dumping every negative event on your character of color because you either view her as “strong enough” to handle it (which in itself has racist connotations) or because you don’t see a problem with making her life hell despite no one else having to deal with what she deals with. 

So this is what I have off the top of my head and, of course, this doesn’t even scratch the surface of the number of ways someone could make their work more feminist, but it’s a good place to start, I think.

As for book recs, any I make are probably gonna be for older books since I don’t do a ton of reading anymore (Shame on me, I know). Fair warning, I used to exclusively read (straight) YA romances because I really only had access to mainstream books so if that’s not your cup of tea, then I’m sorry! Alright, here goes:

  • Anything by Sarah Dessen is a win for me because I always like seeing teenage girls be portrayed as real people with real flaws. Because they’re meant to be from the perspective of actual teenagers, they do have their problems: they can be slut shamey, they’re all very white, they’re very hetero, but I really enjoy them. Of her books, though, I’d have to say my favorite is “Just Listen”, which was the first of hers that I ever read. It’s told from the perspective of a rape victim as she tries to navigate her life after her rape and I think it’s a really good portrayal (disclaimer: I am not a rape victim, so if any actual victims who have read it have any other input, I’m glad to hear it!)
  • The D.U.F.F. pretty much carried me through my sophomore year of high school because I had NEVER read a book with a fat protagonist, much less one who we’re made to sympathize with and relate to. Warning, it is SUPER slut shamey (it gets better toward the end, but it spends a lot of time on it) and kinda white feministy but again I will always have a soft spot for it because it was the first time I ever saw a fat girl be portrayed as actually fat but still desirable (by multiple people, too) and that was something that I really needed. Plus it portrays teen sex as a normal, healthy thing but it also touches on using sex as a self harm device. 
  • This has a really different tone from the last two recs but I really liked The Lovely Bones growing up and I think it fits here. It’s about a girl who gets murdered and the story takes place after her death as she watches the people she knew in life try to move on from her murder and deal with it in their own ways. I really appreciate that it’s told from the victim, Susie’s, perspective because any time you have a book covering that subject, you never actually get to know the victim (who is of course usually a woman) and they just become a plot device rather than an actual person. It really turns the fridging women trope on its head because, yes a female character died and we view everyone else’s pain because of it, but we view it from the female character’s eyes so it’s about her pain/struggle more than anything. 
  • There’s also a short story by Toni Morrison that I might have mentioned on this blog a while back called Recitatif that I LOVE. I’ve waxed poetic about my 10/11 grade English teacher here before, but she totally changed my life and the first way she did it was by making me read that story. It’s about two girls growing up in the 20th century. One is black, one is white. But you’re never explicitly told which is which. The whole point is supposed to be that race/race roles are a social construct (which you can imagine blew our 16 year old minds), but yeah definitely check that out. And her other stuff, Toni Morrison is seriously amazing.

Again, this is just off the top of my head, but these are the ones that came to mind when I took a moment to think about the books I used to read. Most of them are far from perfect, but this is where I started, so I figured it might help someone else. 

I hope this was a good response to your question, anon!

Dr. Nikola Tesla On Albert Einstein’s Theory Of Relativity

“Great Scientific Discovery Impends.” Sunday Star. Washington D.C., May 17, 1931:

“I want to be emphatic in my condemnation of the idea that atomic energy will ever be our source of power. This is an illusory idea against which I have preached for years. In my experiments with peculiar vacuum tubes operated under tensions of 12,000,000 volts atoms are shattered, but there is no liberation of energy observable such as would be expected according to modern theories. But even if the latter were true, it still would take much more energy to disintegrate the atom than can be recovered by harnessing the liberated energy, however great it might be.

“What I am referring to is an entirely new principle which I have already experimentally demonstrated…“

“What is ‘thought’ in relativity, for example, is not science, but some kind of metaphysics based on abstract mathematical principles and conceptions which will be forever incomprehensible to beings like ourselves whose whole knowledge is derived from a three-dimensional world.”

–Nikola Tesla

“Tesla, 75, Predicts New Power Source.” New York Times, July 5, 1931:

“The idea of atomic energy is illusionary, but it has taken so powerful a hold on the minds that, although I have preached against it for 25 years, there still are some who believe it to be realizable.

“I have disintegrated atoms in my experiments with a high potential vacuum tube I brought out in 1896, which I consider one of my best inventions. I have operated it with pressures ranging from 4,000,000 to 18,000,000 volts. More recently I have designed an apparatus for 50,000,000 volts which should produce many results of great scientific importance.

“But as to atomic energy, my experimental observations have shown that the process of disintegration is not accompanied by a liberation of such energy as might be expected from the present theories.”

–Nikola Tesla

Hugo Gernsback. “Faster Than Light!” Science & Mechanics. November, 1931:

“Tesla contradicts a part of the relativity theory emphatically, holding that mass is unalterable; otherwise, energy could be produced from nothing, since the kinetic energy acquired in the fall of a body would be greater than that necessary to lift it at a small velocity.

“It is within the bounds of possibility that Einstein’s mathematics of speeds greater than light may be wrong. Tesla has been right many times during the past, and he may be proven right in the future. In any event, the statement that there are speeds faster than light is a tremendous one, and opens up entirely new vistas to science.”

Tesla’s statement relating to force and matter, to Einstein’s theories, and Tesla’s own theory of gravitation. Courtesy of Nikola Tesla Papers. Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University. April 15, 1932:

“We read a great deal about matter being changed into force and force being changed into matter by the cosmic rays. This is absurd. It is the same as saying that the body can be changed into the mind, and the mind into the body. We know that the mind is a functioning of the body, and in the same manner force is a function of matter. Without the body there can be no mind, without matter there can be no force.

“Einstein has for years developed formulas explaining the mechanism of the cosmos. In doing this he overlooked an important factor, namely the fact that some of the heavenly bodies are increasing in distance from the sun. This is the same as writing a business letter and forgetting the subject you wish to write about. In order to explain this phenomenon Einstein has invented the quantity “lambda,”

“My theory of gravitation explains this phenomenon perfectly.”

–Nikola Tesla

“Pioneer Radio Engineer Gives Views On Power.” New York Herald Tribune, September 11, 1932:

“It might be inferred that I am alluding to the curvature of space supposed to exist according to the teachings of relativity, but nothing could be further from my mind. I hold that space cannot be curved, for the simple reason that it can have no properties. It might as well be said that God has properties. He has not, but only attributes and these are of our own making. Of properties we can only speak when dealing with matter filling the space. To say that in the presence of large bodies space becomes curved, is equivalent to stating that something can act upon nothing. I, for one, refuse to subscribe to such a view.”

–Nikola Tesla

“Device To Harness Cosmic Energy Claimed By Tesla.” New York American, November 1, 1933:

“I have smashed probably trillions of atoms and have definitely determined that they contain no available energy. The theory that they do is a futile dream. But the new cosmic power, the harnessing of the energy of the universe to the machinery of men, that is not a dream.”

–Nikola Tesla

“Tesla, 79, Promises to Transmit Force.” New York Times, July 11, 1935:

“[The Theory of Relativity] is a mass of errors and deceptive ideas violently opposed to the teachings of great men of science of the past and even to common sense.

“The theory wraps all these errors and fallacies and clothes them in magnificent mathematical garb which fascinates, dazzles and makes people blind to the underlying errors. The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king. Its exponents are very brilliant men, but they are metaphysicists rather than scientists. Not a single one of the relativity propositions has been proved.”

–Nikola Tesla

In support of his statement he cited a number of experiments he had conducted, he said, as far back as 1896 on the cosmic ray. He has measured cosmic ray velocities from Antarus, he said, which he found to be fifty times greater than the speed of light, thus demolishing, he contended, one of the basic pillars of the structure of relativity, according to which there can be no speed greater than that of light.

“Dynamic Theory Of Gravity.” July 10, 1937 (Prior to interviews with the press on his 81st birthday observance.):

“According to the relativists, space has a tendency to curvature owing to an inherent property or presence of celestial bodies. Granting a semblance of reality to this fantastic idea, it is still self-contradictory. Every action is accompanied by an equivalent reaction and the effects of the latter are directly opposite to those of the former. Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curvature of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies and, producing the opposite effects, straighten out the curves. Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible. But even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for them and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion. So are also all attempts to explain the workings of the universe without recognizing the existence of the ether and the indispensable function it plays in the phenomena.”

–Nikola Tesla
