When you're in an orchestra playing Kalinnikov's Symphony No. 1 and your conductor is trying to make the violins play a certain note properly (sort of barque-ish) and he says: "Try to imagine that the piece was composed by Johann Sebastian Kalinnikov for a moment, and then let's see what happens" and the entire orchestra starts laughing. We're a bunch of geeks omg.

I love nerdy music humor

Lance should write a ‘why my boyfriend is crying’ list bc let’s face it. Shiro would.

‘saw one of those dog rescue videos’

‘Pidge did something she was really proud of so he was really proud of her’

‘saw an emotional ad. For a refrigerator’

‘my baby nephew sneezed and it was way too cute’

‘mama said he was a handsome boy and all her friends agreed with her’

‘Keith was in touch with his emotions for a whole 20 seconds’

kicking you out

for the anon who asked for a groupchat celebrity au with twitter. ik this isn’t exactly what you asked for, but i will do a proper celebrity au one day. probably. dedicated to my wife @jiilys bc she deserves all this and more

STATIC SHOCK and the Importance of Representation

Static Shock aka Virgil Hawkins was one of my favorite super heroes growing up and so important to my childhood.

Here I share with you why I love Static Shock and share my personal story of what representation and diversity in cartoons and media can do for people. 

after all these years, shishio is happy. after six. freaking. years. shishio finally has the chance to be with someone with whom he can truly be himself again.

i am so, so happy for him, because he deserved so much more from hnr, seriously. and he finally has the chance to be happy. i never saw him smile that much since he was with suzume, and i want to cry for him (no, really, i got choked up when i saw his smile in the last couple pages).

and, y'know, what really makes me happy about this one-shot? we see the fruit of his labor. he’s more honest now, and suzume taught him that. he put away the sushi tie, because he didn’t want anything to hinder his chances with samejima. he bit the bullet and kissed her, because he liked her and wanted her to know that. he freaking waited outside his apartment for who knows how long, in the cold, for samejima to come back home so that he could tell her the truth, because dammit he’s messed things up twice already and he didn’t want to lose a good thing a third time.

he did the running this time, and man. i was pissed before over the hnr ending, despite being a mazume shipper, but now i’m just happy that shishio can be happy because this guy really deserved it. ;_;

anonymous asked:

Well. I don't know how to explain. Like: Steve in lace, trans!steve - just not my thing and yet I can't stop looking at it. I don't know - the trans!steve makes me sick and I love it at the same time, because you did a great job. Like I said, you confuse me and I love/hate it.

I don’t know if you meant your words to come off the way they did, but calling a trans person sick is extremely hurtful, and it sounds like you’re trying to be purposely cruel towards them when you say it. I have some trans friends and it breaks my heart to hear them referred to like this. 

It sounds like you have some transphobia and discomfort with breaking down gender norms. People often feel that way when confronted by something society hasn’t yet normalised. Our instincts tell us to distrust what’s different, but humans are not just a product of instincts. We have the ability to reason and rationalize and to overcome inappropriate feelings and urges that may be “natural” but are still lacking in compassion and morality.

I don’t want this to be a “call out post” that just shames you for your feelings. The fact that you’ve reached out about your confusion is encouraging. It’s likely you’ve never met anyone who is trans or gender fluid so the idea (and visuals) are new to you. 

I suspect the reason you’re fascinated by the manips is because Steve is someone you presumably really like, but he’s being paired with something that makes you feel uncomfortable. This forces you reevaluate how you feel about something you might not have thought about much beyond general discomfort. Cause it’s Steve. When someone you know and love is “othered” it forces you to look at the “other” differently because you now have to associate that category with someone you care for. 

That’s the whole point of the art. It’s a good “discomfort” because it makes you think and reevaluate and hopefully walk away more open minded after you have a chance to wrap your mind around it.  

In any case I’m glad you like the art and I hope this has given you something to think about.

lenina-phasma  asked:

Oh great and powerful Wil "Becky" Wheaton, is The Rocky Horror Picture Show fandom part of the geek community?

To paraphrase myself, being a geek isn’t about what you love, it’s about the way you love it.

So, by that definition, YES.

By another definition: FUCK YES. Rocky is something that has always attracted and supported and embraced outsiders, and until recently, what we thought of as the geek community was nothing BUT outsiders. 

And because it’s always a FAQ when this comes up: Magenta.

//ITS MY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF JOINING WILD ENCOUNTERS! It’s been a wild ride you guys but I’ve had a whole bunch of fun. It’s kept me going when things got really unstable and I’ve had the chance to meet a whole bunch of super great people. It’s nice to have it as a constant, ya know? Like… I love you guys man!! Ya’ll are like the coolest pokemon family and it’s a blessing to be a part of it! Here’s to the next year!!

I wracked my brain for a fun way to celebrate but in the end it would be nice if you could just drop Cyn and ask! It can be about anything, the future, what she’s into right now, gossip she knows… She’s changed a lot over the year. Hopefully for the better.

Anyway, lets just keep having fun guys!!
