I looked at the live thing on Google and it looks like 2-4% of the state, so far, has voted third part. That’s 2-4% that could’ve gone to Clinton and not the Oompa Loompa dumpster fire. Why the fuck don’t people listen about third party when we say all it does is split the fucking vote?!?!?
look I’m not trying to condescend to anyone, but there’s been a lot of deliberate misinformation aimed at millennials this election, and I know that for some of you this is your first presidential race, so. you cannot vote via text. if anyone tells you otherwise, they’re fucking with you. if you’re in college, there will be a polling place on your campus. if you’re working, your job will give you time off to go vote. you must do it in person.
the gop thinks millennials are dumb enough to fall for this. make them swallow it.
Trump actually won the presidency … Now I understand we can try to get him impeached but I got some things to rant about so excuse the caplocks…
FOR ALL Y'ALL WHO WERE ON MY FACEBOOK TELLING PEOPLE TO VOTE THIRD PARTY OR TELLING PEOPLE THEIR VOTE WOULDN’T MATTER LOOK WHAT HAPPENED. FOR ALL Y'ALL WHO WERE SAYING THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED AND SAYING “HILLARY IS GONNA WIN NO MATTER WHAT, DON’T SWEAT IT” LOOK WHAT HAPPENED. FOR ALL THE BLACK PEOPLE WHO DECIDED TO BOYCOTT THE ELECTION BECAUSE “WE NEED BLACK PEOPLE TO STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES” ALTHOUGH OUR LIVES ALONG WITH OTHER POC WERE LITERALLY ON THE DANG LINE. LOOK. WHAT. HAPPENED. THIS WAS NOT THE TIME TO SAY THESE THINGS. THIS WAS THE TIME TO VOTE FOR CLINTON BECAUSE WE CANNOT HAVE TRUMP. I UNDERSTAND BOTH CANDIDATES WERE AND ARE HORRIBLE. BUT MY GOD Y'ALL REALLY LET A CHEETO PUFF WITH NO EXPERIENCE WIN THE PRESIDENCY. Y'ALL REALLY LET A SEXIST, RACIST, MISOGYNIST, SEXUAL OFFENDER WIN THIS ELECTION. SO I HOPE Y'ALL GOT WHAT YA WANTED. DON’T COMPLAIN NOW BECAUSE YOU GUYS CAUSED THIS WITH ALL THAT FOOLISH TALK
Okay usually I don’t do that but I saw things so I need to tell you why I decided to vote for Yuri on Ice on Crunchyroll’s award for best animation, even if I watched and enjoyed Mob Psycho 100 (and only on animation because I think the other wins don’t need explanations [woops see edit])
First, you need to know what Yuri on Ice actually mean to me : I’m an old anime lover but lately I slowly lost interest in anime. Less and less shows appeal to me and when I begin a serie, usually I’ll loose interest very fast. Even if I watch until the end, it’s really rare that I want to see it again.
I watched by total coincidence Yuri on Ice and I loved it instantly.
Not because of the “fanservice”, at the time I didn’t know we would have the best romance I have seen in a long time (and to be honest, I’m not the public for this)
It was because of the animation. YES.
The first scene hooked me. It made me feel emotions. It was well done and very intriguing. The first skate of Victor was so beautiful and made me feel SO MANY things, the face of the characters in so many scenes made me feel their emotions and their feelings. The opening was so beautiful and artistic (and the animation in it was so good too) and of course I fell in love with Yuri Katsuki and his struggles instantly.
Hell, if the romance between Victor and Yuri was so tender and believable to me, it was ALSO because of the animation, which shows their love so sweetly and with so much care and earnesty.
So I want you to keep that in mind : I decided to watch Yuri on Ice weeks after weeks because its animation made me feel EMOTIONS and it was a long time ago that I haven’t felt that. Of course the beautiful music helped but the animation was the best part to me. (I have seen so many pretty but emotionless animation in anime)
Now let’s talk about another thing : the charadesign. Yes. That’s a thing too. I don’t think Mob Psycho 100 animation is ugly, I think it’s really amazing and full of personnality. But Yuri on Ice has a lot of beauty in his charadesign and its characters, specially the ladies, are pretty without being “moe” (sorry I don’t like it) and kind of realistic? For this part, it is a subjective opinion. But to be honest I think lot of people have think the same.
It’s not that Mob Psycho has no good charadesign (because it has). But Yuri on Ice style appeals to more people because it’s easier to like it than a bold style with a lot of personality like Mob psycho (it’s like One piece, you like it or not). And believe it, I’m sure it was taken in consideration.
So to conclude, I loved Mob Psycho 100 and thought the animation was amazing, creative and original. But I still chose without ANY hesitation Yuri on Ice and it’s because its animation made me feel more emotions than the other. I don’t care if some part were worst than other, actually I didn’t notice at first watch because I didn’t felt for an anime that much in a lot of time and for that it deserved my vote.
Also if it wins in other category, I think it was no coincidence : people have felt emotions too and have loved it so much they decided to vote for it. And if it’s not what animation is supposed to give, I don’t know why I’m watching anime.
EDIT : Oh and I’m sorry I forgot to add an important thing (at 12′ I thought it was obvious and at 4′ it was too late to add it haha)
Of course, it’s my entire personal opinion on the subject and I believe Mob Psycho 100 would definitely deserved to win (it’s just that I had to choose between its creativity and coolness versus feelings and smoothness? I mean, YOI has animated skating and I love artistical performance, so again, personal taste. Yuri on Ice won because I could remember several animated scenes that affected me a lot while with Mob, even if it was good, I couldn’t do it, so it truly was a deliberate choice to privilege heart vs creativity)
Also I totally forgot to tell that there’s that one award that I think would have belong to Mob Psycho and it’s the painted ending which was so much better in my opinion (always my opinion) and actually that’s why I decided to vote for it ^^
Aaaand I also forgot to tell that it’s obvious that the popularity of the anime helped it to win buuut I did not refute that, I just told you why I was one of the people who vote Yuri on Ice : also I’m sure that a lot of people vote on the spur of the moment because they loved the anime and didn’t think it was so bad! Anyway, it’s done now so let’s move on! (and watch Mob Psycho 100, I’m very happy that this made lot of people watched the show ^^)
So uh, I just went through my activity page and realized that I have 892 followers.
That is INSANE- I never imagined getting even a HUNDRED follows when I started this blog, much less this!!
And I had thought a while back that I would love to give something back in thanks if I ever happened to break 1,000… But I’ve had a huge influx of follows in the last month, and not only is that landmark looking more likely, it could potentially happen fairly soon!!
As such, I started considering that thank you gift more seriously, and settled on the fact that the best thing I likely have to offer is my writing.
But- Writing of what?
I considered some things, but you know what? I usually write by my own whim and inspiration, so I thought- Why not let my followers pick the topic in this case?
So, what would YOU like to see me write? An off-shoot or specific event tied to a existing work of mine? A rewrite of a canon scene in the YGO series? A particular AU scenario? A specific interaction between two+ characters? Hit me up in replies to this post!
I’m planning to collect them and - if there are enough of them by then - put up a vote sometime a week from now for the most popular/viable ideas.
After that, well… I’ll have until I hit that 1,000 marker to write it, eh?
