Never afraid to speak and/or draw her mind, Los Angeles based artist and illustrator, Hellen Jo and her characters can be described as rough, vulgar, tough, jaded, powerful, bratty and bad-ass - AKA her own brand of femininity. Known for her comic Jin & Jam, and her work as an illustrator and storyboard artist for shows such as Steven Universe and Regular Show, Hellen’s rebellious, and sometimes grotesque artwork and illustrations are redefining Asian American women and women of color in comics. In fact, that’s why Hellen Jo was a must-interviewee for our latest Sketchy Behavior where we talk to her about her love of comics and zines, her antiheroines, and redefining what Asian American women identity is or can be; and what her ultimate dream project realized would be.
You know that persuasion technique where you sandwich criticism between compliments and constructive ideas in order to get the recipient to listen and take it on board? Well…
Dear Chris Carter,
Two of the most visually stunning episodes of The X-Files (The Post-ModernPrometheus and Triangle) were directed by you. |If season 11 ever happens, maybe you should take a step back from writing, | and concentrate purely on directing?
The vitality of Sansa’s role in the Stark’s repossession of Winterfell and why she WON’T betray Jon
How viewers are still questioning her character despite proving herself smarter than Jon for an entire season
Disclaimer before everyone sends me hate without reading the entire post: Jon Snow is one of my favorite characters, this is just meant as a little tough love in my part.
OKAY. Listen up. I’m so goddamn tired of reading and listening to people talk about the possibility of Sansa betraying Jon because people continue to compare her to her younger self when she knew NOTHING about real life and the throne and desired to be the queen, like she wasn’t allowed to be a normal young, naive teenage girl. And I’m tired of people saying she had little to do with the Starks taking back the north. I’m TIRED.
I know there’s a gazillion posts talking about this but it’s so goddamn simple, guys. Viewers and readers of the series neglect to see it because Jon is a fan favorite. The truth is Jon. Fucked. Up. Majorly. Okay? Point blank. Period. The end. It’s time to face the music. When we say the Starks won thanks to Sansa, it’s literal.
Saw blade runner 2049 yesterday, was excellent! Visually a
masterpiece , every single frame was so well composed and lit, just
As a fan if blade runner too I was surprised by how good the
story was and all the performances, the only thing missing was the
beautiful vangelis soundtrack of original.
Rreally amazing film, as
good as if not better in some aspects as original. Though I’d say the
are good for different reasons , but the fact they are even on the same
level. How rare for a sequel! The designs too…. Loved that car so
much, and the costumes and tech all just great.
Really enjoying doing these ink sketches though, would be great to do some commissions in this style! Hint 😁
i'm dyyyyyyyyying to know your opinion about mic drop choreo. it's so agressive n intense. also, tae really improved a lot of his dancing this comeback, im so impressed!
sorry @bst/tomorrow move aside MIC DROP is now my fave bts piece :))
listen ok that piece ended every single dance career out there like forsythe who? ricky dillon? travis wall? succ that good old bts dick bc they came IN for ur careers and decimated every single person out there holy shit
overall, the choreography is incredibly intense like u mentioned. it hits hard w no breaks for the audience and the dancers themselves. visually, a masterpiece. choreographically, a bigger masterpiece. (and, to be noted, there are some parts where i don’t like the steps, but that’s personal preference lol)
i would like to give the chorus three thousand platinum diamond gold stars bc it’s choreo is perfect , like. it looks good on the dancers, but it isn’t overly complicated . the movements fit the music and the way things are executed ..bts did well to accommodate to the style of hiphop they’re dancing. it’s something most people miss, but i caught and really appreciate it
i wanted to pick out some timestamps for people to watch, but the whole fucking thing is good like i’ve never been this invested in one of their dances ever? i’m not even joking if i was taking this as a class i’d be screaming the whole way thru the chorus
it’s hit after hit after hit after hit and there’s no break for my Ass god all the choreo is fucking perfect there’s nothing else mr. son could’ve put in there to match the song that well
the only way to describe MIC DROP is “hot”. it’s sexy but in a careless, locking attitude, and bts plays into a new style really well. they fit seamlessly into the genre, and i think this is the concept they were looking for during debut, but couldn’t find it. it’s nice to see a more mature group tackle a darker concept
the opening to that dance is the best bts choreo i’ve ever seen, sorry :// it’s hot and smart it has a Feel to it that i can’t quite describe but fits the vibe that bts was going for (0:00-0:13) idk what it is about it that makes me put it on loop for 23min but ??? it’s so satisfying to watch
the transitions were impeccable. the way they played w levels and differing moves for every member within the group formation = nut after nut after nut after nut
i would also like to point eyes to the costuming bc that shit was flawless during this performance: i hope they keep it up. their clothes were actual dancewear, so i could see the movement thru the body. it projected choreo in a flattering manner, and the “mix and match” style of old hiphop was super super super super super super super tasteful.
gold fucking star to min yoongi’s outfit especially. i’m dying to get my hands on those pants bc h o l y s h i t did they look good when he was moving. they’re baggy in a good way….it enhanced the choreography Well
0:55 - hoseok walking off but still dancing is smth to notice. it’s probably a personal correction he gave himself to account for camerawork, so instead of slouching off in the background, he continues the movement in order to uphold a performance aura. otherwise, he will look sloppy and not ready for the stage
seokjin and namjoon improved the most imo. U can see them finally filling out the counts and adding extra interp into their dancing + way less stiff. i thought they wouldn’t do well w this dance because it’s slow, but they just proved me wrong
Ok Minatozaki Sana is a straight up visual masterpiece. She is so beautiful. Have you seen Sana’s eyes?! God I could talk for years about how beautiful and kind her eyes are. She conveys so much love and pure goodness through a single gaze she’s so mesmerising
But oh my god her personality, Sana is an angel y'all she’s such a sweetheart. She’s an adorably affectionate human and she always shows support by hugging her members she just really likes hugs and kisses she’s so precious.
SHE JUST REALLY LOVES HER MEMBERS AND LOVES SHOWING THEM AFFECTION
Get you a girl that supports you like Sana does I’m serious. She’s so kind and genuine, you know that one video of her and a female fan, I’m crygin over how sweet Sana was god I wish that were me. You can tell that she really cares about Onces, she’s such a pure soul. Here’s a video, don’t mind that the background music is BTS’s cover of Beautiful, just mute the vid if you like
ALSO, Sana is an adorable goofball. she’s so playful and she always tries to spread happiness. YES she’s also clumsy but honestly that just makes her fifteen times more adorable
AND ANOTHER THIng, Sana’s intelligence gets overlooked at lot because she’s not ‘conventionally’ smart and she says weird things all the time. L I S T E N my girl is such a deep and emotional thinker, her intelligence is so unique and beautiful and she actually thinks and considers things a lot and she is so emotionally smart, DON’T SLEEP ON MINATOZAKI ‘GENIUS’ SANA
DO I NEED TO MENTION HER TALENT, honestly I think Sana’s vocals get overlooked a lot. She’s improved so much recently, and she has such a beautiful high range. DID YOU HEAR HER NOTE AT THE END OF THREE TIMES A DAY???? DID YOU???? BEAUTIFUL THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL. MY GIRL WENT FROM HAVING NOT A LOT OF LINES TO BEING GIVEN CHORUSES IN TWO TITLE TRACKS. Q U E E N
AND HER DANCING UM HELLO. AmaZINg! We all know Mina and Momo are the key dancers, but in terms of ranking Sana is right behind them and just as talented in her own right. She is a performer and she kills it on stage.
To conclude, I love Minatozaki Sana with all of my heart ok bye
