Big thanks to my beta @cesperanza ! Here’s to that future Virginia Woolf AU ; )

Honestly fuck corporate!

So I work at a movie theater where we cannot make decisions on our own without calling corporate first. Want to reprint tickets that a customer lost? Better call corporate. Want to send employees home because the weather is bad and you (hopefully) want them to be safe? Better call corporate!

Keep in mind that that the corporate office is hundreds of miles away in a different state! At this point, I’m surprised we don’t have to ask permission to wipe our own ass.

heatherlanntheclever  asked:

Is there any chance of a happy ending for the Lannisters? I know they are awful people but why develop their motivations and give each of them a genuine moment of compassion if they are just going to murder each other? Every other POV gets a moment of truth/redemption why not the children of Tywin/Patriarchy/Aerys and Disability? I'm a bad person myself so I need to believe the Lions can defy themselves and prophesy and overcome their nature or what's the point? Not all of us are born Starks.

Hey! So its gonna take me a few minutes to answer your question, but I promise Im gonna get there.

In one of the other shows I watch, an actor commented on the banality of evil. He said that evil is something commonplace. Given the right circumstances, great acts of evil could be committed by your neighbors, or your friends, or you, or me. Because evil is so easy.The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. You neednt be a monster like Gregor to commit evil; you need only be human.

HURMPH. The gangs all here, huh??? Where the fuck are the X-Men!!! You know what, this is just like god damn present day Marvel. Let’s forget all about the X-Men every chance we get!!! We don’t have the movie rights so we can’t do a god damn thing to promote them in our comic books!! So let’s cut them out of all promotional material and remove them from existing artwork so we can better promote our own movie licenses instead!!! And let’s make a movie about the fucking Inhumans instead!! Yeah!!! They can be creepy outcasts from society who are persecuted and discriminated against for being different!!! Maybe we can have a red headed one that goes all crazy!! The X-whosits now? Who were they?? We can’t remember!! They must not have been important. God damn it!!! Fuck corporate politics!!! And fuck these pig headed writers and artists for completely lacking artistic integrity and forgetting about my favorite characters!! Assholes.

Oh wait nevermind here they are. (Secret Wars II #9 – Mar 1986)

In a movie theater, you look at the screen, you never look at the back. The projector is in the back. The film is not really on the screen, it is just a projection of shadow and light. The film exists in the projector, in the back, but you never look at that. Your mind is at the back of everything. Your mind is the projector. But you always look at the screen - at the everything.

When you’re in love, the person is beautiful. When you hate, the person is ugly. You never become aware of how the same person can be beautiful and ugly.


The only way to reach the truth is to learn how to be immediate in your vision. The mind is the problem, because the mind projects its images on the screen you’re looking at. What you see is just your projection. And there are as many worlds as there are minds, because every mind lives in his own world.


We get caught up in projecting movies of our own making onto the situations and people surrounding us. Instead of taking responsibility for our own expectations, desires and judgments, we attribute them to others. A projection can be good or bad, beautiful or ugly, disturbing or comforting, but it is still a projection that prevents us from seeing reality as it is. The only way out is to recognize the game.

—  Osho, Hsin hsin ming, the book of nothing

In 7th grade I had a class called Contemporary Communications that was basically about varying forms of media like comics and movies and such

And in the movies unit, we each had to make our own comedy film

We had to write a script and include x number of types of jokes, which honestly was a really weird way to write comedy cus it was just so formulaic and stiff

So the day comes to finally make the movie and everything goes wrong; other people were showing up to use the space, props were messing up, no one knew their lines. We couldn’t even do multiple takes cus we were using a shitty old camcorder and we didn’t have a way to edit it. Needless to say, it absolutely sucked

The main point is that I should have joined a group instead of working alone, cus I had and still have no idea how to write comedy

One group had their video on a DVD and part of it took place on a fucking yacht

Rich assholes…

I Miss You

For Lovely Anon <3 Thank you for the blog compliment!!

FUCK.

Roman Reigns x Reader

~

You were sitting at home alone and emotional. Your fiance Roman Reigns, had been on the road for a few months and you missed him dearly. You wanted to hold him, hug him, kiss him, anything. You just wanted him to be home. You called and video chatted with each other every single day but it wasn’t the same.
He told you a few days ago that he was going to take some time off to come home and spend a few weeks with you and plan your wedding, you just didn’t know when.
It was around 8:00 pm and you were patiently waiting for Roman to call you. After a few minutes your phone rang and you looked to see who was calling you, it was him.
“Hello?” You tried to make your voice out to be as normal as possible but Roman knew you better than you knew yourself so it didn’t work.
“Hey beautiful.. What’s wrong?” You took a deep breath and tried again.
“Nothing! I’m okay!” You brought a hand to your face to prevent you from sobbing into the phone. You heard Roman sigh on the other end and you knew your plan was falling apart before it had even begun.
“No, something’s wrong babe. You’ve been crying. I can hear it in your voice..” You were silent for a few moments.
“I just miss you. A lot.” As much as you tried to hold your tears, they escaped and you couldn’t hold it in anymore.
“I know, I miss you too. Please don’t cry, it breaks my heart hearing you cry..” You tried composing yourself and Roman continued. “I’ll be home soon..”
“Not soon enough Ro. I miss you. I’ve been so lonely. I can only sleep if i’m on your side of the bed. I want you home…”
“I know baby girl.” You adjusted yourself in your bed so you were under the covers and on Roman’s side of the bed. “Like I said, I’ll be home soon. Where are you?”
“Laying in bed.. why?”
“Just wanted to know.. but listen to me okay? When I get home, you and I are going to do nothing but be with each other. I’ll take two or three weeks off just for us okay? I don’t want to do anything else but be with you. We can cuddle all day, and watch movies. You can try to beat me at any xbox game you want to play, anything you want. Just please don’t cry.”
The more you thought about how amazing he was and how much you missed his presence it seemed like it was harder to stop crying. You were crying and heard what sounded like a door on Roman’s end of the phone.
“Are you at another hotel?”
“Eh, something like that.. (Y/N) I love you, I hate to hear or see you cry. How about when I get home, we take a bubble bath and watch movies, I’ll make you popcorn. We can have our own movie night and just enjoy it together. What do you say?” Your crying had begun to ease and you were finally able to whisper into the phone.
“I’d love that.. and I love you too.”
“Good, well, I gotta go. I have something really important to do.” You were a little upset he had to go but you just agreed. You both said “Goodbye” and “I love you” before hanging up. You buried your face in the pillow and began sobbing.
“I’m gunna need my side of the bed back.”
You didn’t hear your room door open. You sat up quickly when you heard a deep voice behind you. He was home.
You got out of the bed and jumped on him and kissed his face all over. You were still crying but the tears were happy tears. You wrapped your arms around his neck and your legs around his waist. He wrapped his around your torso and held you tight.
“I missed you.” You whispered into his neck and he did the same. You gave him kiss after kiss and you didn’t want to stop. He started smiling into the kisses and you did the same. He smiled and pulled away but you kept kissing his face allowing him to say whatever he needed to say.
“Come on, let’s go take the bath and start our night.” He was chuckling at your light kisses. You pecked his lips and shook your head.
“Not yet, i’m not done.” He smiled wide and you continued to kiss all around his face. You kissed him one last time on his lips and you finally jumped down. He kissed the top of your head and the two of you made your way to the bathroom. This was a lot better than just a phone call, your soon to be husband was finally home.

Our Own Romance

[YOONMIN] fluff; no warnings

Jimin and Yoongi go to the movies; Yoongi gets them kicked out.


Hyung~ pleeeease?? Jimin begged Yoongi bouncing from his seat on the couch next to the older boy.

No, Jiminnie. Its the same thing every time. We go to watch a horror movie, you get too scared halfway through, and we leave without even finishing the whole movie. Why dont you ask one of the other members to go with you Yoongi replied not looking up from the phone he was currently tweeting on.

Because theyre not my boyfriends! I wanna go with you hyung! Isnt that what boyfriends do?? Jimin looked at Yoongi with pouting eyes and lips that he knew the elder could never refuse.

Okay okay fine. We can go, ChimChim Yoongi smiled ruffling Jimins hair. Although Yoongi sucked at showing it, he really cared for his boyfriend and would do anything to make him happy. That adorable eye smile of his was worth any pain to Yoongi.

YAY! Hyung youre the best! Ill go buy the tickets online and we can go to the next showing tonight Jimin cheered, hugging Yoongi and giving him a sloppy kiss on the lips before running off to find his laptop.

Reflections

A few years ago I lived in a small college town in the mountains. Me and a few friends had this nice set up where we all lived in the same house, not like a rental or anything, but a house one of us had in our family. It was a new house, built around 2004 or so, but I think I remember hearing that there were some tenants renting out the place before we moved in, a fraternity or something. In random places throughout the house, you could still find their Greek letters drawn into the rafters or in some small obscure place under the sink. In a way I appreciated that they had left those small letters around. A kind of a way to mark that they had been there, that the house held importance to them as well as it would to us.

When we moved in in the summer of 2009, it was barren. No furniture to speak of, no food or shampoo bottles, the little things that over time make a house a home. We were able to wrangle together a small couch, beds for each of us, and stocked the place with some summer provisions to hold us over until our financial aid refund dispersed in the fall.

As we explored the house, we found that one of the previous tenants had left a light bulb in one of the upstairs bedrooms. We flicked the light switch and the room was flooded with this red light. My friend, Ill call her Olivia, made a grimace at the light and I followed in suit, then we both started to laugh. It was creepy and unsettling, but nothing horrifying. It was kind of funny, actually, that the only thing left there for us was this red light bulb in the bedroom. We joked, and for a few months we called it the Murder Room.

My room was directly next to the Murder Room. After some time, the other roommates, Ill call them Elaina and Lewis, came in to help set things up. However, Lewis and Olivia both had summer jobs back home, so Elaina and I settled in for the next three months of relative isolation. She had the room directly down the hall from me, with the bathroom between us in the hall.
One weekend, Elaina went down to see Lewis and left me to the house by myself. If youve ever stayed in a new house or apartment by yourself for a few days, you can understand how creepy it is on your own. But I made it work. I turned on all the lights, and watched some Monty Python, Shin Chan, any sort of ridiculous comedy I could think of to lighten the mood.

As I sat on the couch downstairs, I figured that I was up for a little scare. I mean, sometimes scaring yourself is a ton of fun, and hey, I didnt need to be up in the morning for anything. So I gathered my courage and popped in a copy of Paranormal Activity. After maybe the second act, I decided that, no, I was in fact not up for a little scare. I switched it off and went back to Monty Python.

About halfway through the second episode of the night, a piercing noise began to screech though the empty house. I jumped up from my seat and looked around in a mild panic. For no reason whatsoever, all of the fire alarms in the house started going off at once. They were in perfect sync, alarms in stereo, and I ran into the kitchen to see if I had forgotten some food I had started cooking earlier that night. The stove was bare.

I looked around, trying to find the source of the alarm, but there was no smoke anywhere in the house. Then, just as they had started, they stopped. Jarred, but with apparently nothing else to investigate, I went back to the living room, and resumed watching my shows.

About a half hour later, the alarms rounded again, this time not quite as in sync as before. Fueled by paranoia and thoroughly impressed by what I had seen in Paranormal Activity, I ran over and grabbed a pool stick from the corner of the room. You know. To fight demons. Then, the alarms stopped again.

Deciding that I was done with the nonsense, I switched off the TV and went upstairs to bed. I brought the pool stick with me. You know. To fight demons. I slept with it in my bed that night. The alarms never went off again.

I saw someone claim that bi-Dean supporters aren’t real supporters of bisexual representation because they’re all shippers. I guess they were trying to say that we care more about a ship than we do representation which really shows how little they know about queer shipping. I got into fandom because of the lack of queer representation in the media and know many other people who did the same thing. I wanted art that reflected myself and my friends, mainstream media doesn’t give it to us so we make our own based on the shows/movies/books we enjoy. When we see that the representation we’ve created for ourselves in fandom could easily be represented in mainstream canon we rally for it because it’s important. This isn’t about “I want my pairing to win out over yours” it’s about “I want bisexual representation in the media and recognize that this show has the perfect opportunity to give us that.” 

Imagine waking up next to frat boy!luke; sheets tangled around your waist and your chin resting in the crook of his neck. Your fingertips danced up and down his chest, memorizing the broad plains of his body while your lips pressed light kisses to his skin. Light snores left his pretty pink lips, his deep breaths making your baby hairs move across your forehead. You smiled into his skin, his body heat giving you comfort and even more of a reason to stay in bed all day with your boyfriend.

GOT7 Interview in Aug. 2014 Singles (Eng. Trans.)

Q. You showed off fancy performances with martial arts tricking for your debut track ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, but this song ‘A’ is more cute and lively. And it’s more appealing to the public.
Jr. Last time, we had to look cool, but this time we paid a lot of attention to our facial expressions. Did I and Jaebum-hyung give help to our members since we’ve acted before? Not at all. They all have lots of talent. Especially Youngjae upgraded a lot.
Youngjae. I think my facial expressions are awkward so I don’t monitor my performances lazily. I also worked hard to lose weight. Instead of paying attention to the numerical amount of weight I lost, I lost weight until my face had a V-line shape. I always ate lunch, and when eating lunch and dinner, if I got the feeling of ‘I’ll gain weight if I eat more’, I stopped right there.

Q. In both tracks, the lyrics show you as men that are full of confidence in front of women. How are you in real life?
Yugyeom. I’m really shy. Someone has rarely expressed that they like me. There have been lots of times when I’ve liked someone though…
BamBam. I haven’t ever really felt that a girl likes me.
Jackson. The lyrics and performances are all just acting.

Q. You seem to have a lot of skinship with fans at events such as fansigns. Do you have any instances when you were flustered?
Mark. A fan asked me to kiss her on the cheek but I didn’t (laughs).
Yugyeom. They ask me to pat their head.
JB. That happens often. But if I pat a fan’s head, it’s as if I’m a higher being so I think that action isn’t very courteous to them.
Jr. I think women feel like they’re being protected by that. When I was promoting with JJ Project, we had a small fanmeeting in Vietnam. A fan suddenly kissed me and left. I was taken aback for a moment and just said ‘Thank you~’. My emotions were complicated and I felt restless. Ah…

Q. Mark, Jackson, BamBam, do you have any incidents that occurred because of your Korean skills?
BamBam. Sometimes I get words confused. We have to go to Paju (a city) but I get confused and say ‘Should we go to Pajeon (green onion pancakes)?’ or call Choongchungdo (a province) ‘Chungchoongdo’.
Jackson. When I was a trainee, I saw Park Jinyoung PD-nim at the company building. As soon as I saw him, I said “Hey~ What’s up~ I’m your trainee” and PD-nim looked like he didn’t know how to react then just said “Congratulations” and left (laughs).
Yugyeom. Mark-hyung must’ve been the first trainee that treated PD-nim so comfortably. Now when he sees PD-nim, he says “Oh~ Hyung!”.Note: Mistake in the printed interview. Probably should be Jackson.

Q. Before and after debut, what has changed in the advice that Park Jinyoung PD gives to the members?
Jr. It’s the same that he emphasizes ‘half air half sound’. But this time, he told us to sing while imagining that a girl that we like is in front of us. That a singer is also an actor when on stage.

Q. He must be most harsh to the lead vocal.
Youngjae. Yes. When I sing, I have the habits of raising my eyebrows or opening my mouth widely. But PD-nim said that raising eyebrows while singing is not a good habit, and if I do it again, he’ll put tape on my eyebrows (laughs).

Q. Yugyeom and BamBam that were born in 97 are the maknaes in the team but seem like they have very different characters.
Jackson. Unlike Yugyeom’s manly appearance, he is very tenderhearted and innocent. BamBam has cute behavior but his personality is manly.
Jr. Yugyeom grew 2~3cm while promoting. Sometimes it’s embarrassing when he comes near me when we’re taking pictures because of the height difference.
Jackson. BamBam is still the shortest member. But I think I’ll be the shortest in a year.
Jinyoung. Jackson has a height insecurity.

Q. Doesn’t Jackson have the best body from being an athlete though?
JB. Once, Jackson asked a staff noona which member has the best body. That noona said ‘Jaebum’ so he became sulky.
Jr. Since some time, whenever our bodies are brought up, Jackson just says “Yeah. Jaebum has a better body” then gets sulky.
Jackson. Well, I said I wanted to shoot for <Men’s Health> and that noona said “You? GOT7’s body is obviously Jaebum”. So my mood was just!
JB. If I come out of the shower and am just wearing underwear, Jackson looks up and down at my body (laughs).
Jackson. Jaebum has wide shoulders and not very much body fat. I just have a large body and large muscles and a thick torso. I just accept it now. Im Jaebum-ssi, I will accept it now! (laughs)
Jr. We can talk about this topic for an hour.
Jackson. But lower body is still me.

Q. JB and Jr. debuted as ‘JJ Project’ first and later joined GOT7 and debuted again. You must’ve had more worry or pressure compared to other members.
JB. We were preparing for JJ Project’s second album and suddenly ended up preparing for GOT7. Before this album came out, we worried that if we don’t do well, the same thing would happen that happened then.
Jr. JB-hyung and I are on our 4th year since debut. But we felt like we still haven’t really done much so it hurt a little. After GOT7’s first album promotions ended, it was our 2 year anniversary since debut. I felt a little gloomy for no reason. But since GOT7 has debuted, I am firmly determined that we will succeed.
Jackson. JJ Project doesn’t have to be just two people. Jackson is also ‘J’ so we can be Triple J. Youngjae is also ‘J’ and can do it together too (laughs).

Q. If you have a duet or unit group like JJ Project, which member do you want to do it with?
BamBam. Answer well.
JB. Mm… Jackson?
Jackson. Because the two of us have nice bodies and can rip our clothes?
Yugyeom. Ah! Then Jackson-hyung that has a strong lower body can rip his pants! (laughs)

Q. We heard you receive character education and sex education at your company, so what do you learn about?
JB. Well for sex education… This is embarrassing to talk about (laughs). They teach us proper knowledge. For character education, they provide us mental care. We are able to relieve stress through one-on-one talks. When we were trainees, we did it once a week but now we’re rarely able to.
Jr. Both sex education and character education should be learned not as celebrities, but as humans.

Q. You always say in interviews ‘We want to go farther than being idols and become artists’. What do you think is the difference?Jr. We are not belittling the title of an idol. But I think an artist needs to have their individual musical color, even if they are an idol.

Q. Do you all have a clear preference in music that you want to do?
Mark. I like slow hip hop.
Jr. I’ve enjoyed choreographing since I was young. I also think it would be fun to be a producer that also performs. It’s a different area but I also want to do theatre.
Jackson. I want to do hip hop and R&B.
Youngjae. I want to do R&B ballads but want to both compose and write lyrics. I like music that demands for lots of singing ability.
JB. I like R&B and soul. I want to do lots of different genres of music like indie music or James Morrison style. I also want to write a movie scenario if the opportunity comes.
BamBam. I like Korean hip hop. I also like designing homes, clothes, etc.
Yugyeom. I like hip hop and R&B, and also want to do them well.

Q. You chose 2PM and Shinhwa as your role models.
Jr. g.o.d sunbaes also came back recently, but Shinhwa sunbaes did not break up even once and are the longest running group. Seeing that, we want to be an idol group that lasts a long time by doing our individual activities, living our own lives, but are able to come together and do music whenever our feelings match up.

Q. Do you spend free time with members, too?
Jr. We usually sleep. We also play games on Play Station, or make music in our own rooms. We also watch movies together. We watched <Miracle in Cell No.7> together and bawled.
Mark. When our schedule allows, we want to go watch <Transformers>!

Q. While the average training time for the other members was 3-4 years, Youngjae debuted 7 months after entering the company. What kind of effort did you put in to become closer with the members quickly?
Youngjae. 
None. Because they all have lively personalities.
Jr. We’re very easy guys. So it’s easy to become close with us (laughs).
