AUGUST 19: Carmilla premieres (2014)

On this day in 2014, a little video titled “Disorientation” was uploaded to YouTube. Years later, this video would turn out to be the very first episode of season one of the hit lesbian web series Carmilla!

Adapted from one of the first vampire stories ever written, the novella Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu, the web series was created by Jordan Hall and Ellen Simpson and stars Elise Bauman and Natasha Negovanlis. The original Carmilla tells the story of a young girl who is hunted by a female vampire in the 1890s, but Hall and Simpson reimagined the story to be the video diary of a freshman at the fictional Silas University as she investigates the disappearance of her roommate Betty, while simultaneously trying to adjust to her new roommate – a strange, nocturnal girl by the name of Carmilla. Laura’s investigation eventually leads her to into a world of supernatural beings, as well as into a romance with, you guessed it, her vampire roommate Carmilla.

As of today, the pilot episode has garnered over 2 million views on YouTube. Following the extremely positive reception from LGBT women starving for representation, the Carmilla web series was renewed for three seasons. In 2016, it won a prestigious Canadian Screen Award and since 2014 has won 9 awards in total for its on-screen representation and its strong fan base. Although the series concluded after the third season, it was announced in 2016 that this modern retelling of Carmilla would also be getting a film adaptation with all the stars and creators from the YouTube series remaining! The movie is expected to drop sometime in fall of 2017!

[Clarification] YG’s New Survival Program is NOT for their own Trainees + New Variety Shows for WINNER, iKON & BLACKPINK

Originally posted by kimchiwon

The past few days there has been rumors circulating the web that YG Entertainment has a new “WIN: WHO IS NEXT” / “MIX & MATCH” styled survival program for YG’s male trainees. While there has been much pushback on another program to create a new YG boy band since YG already has three young groups, the company has offically responded that there has been a massive misunderstanding.

It appears that YG’s upcoming survival program is for unknown rookie idols who are NOT a part of YG Entertainment. YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk, free from his K-POP STAR judging duties, will be collaborating with Mnet “Show Me The Money”’s PD Han Dong Chul, to make a “PRODUCE 101”-style program featuring YG’s training system.

For more information on this show’s format and YG’s upcoming variety shows, keep reading.

Happy AoKaga Month 2016!

So, it’s finally that time of year when AoKaga fandom blooms like a beautiful bunch of flowers with hundred of fanfics, drabbles, fanarts of every kind, from kinky and dirty/badwrong/ bdsm-ish to fluffy and stupidly romantic ones. It’s my first AoKaga month, so I’m extra excited, like super super excited to see all the things prepared by this wonderful fandom, and also to contribute by myself with a fiction or some graphics (literally the only things I’m capable of OTL I wish I could draw /sobs/) This layout itself is kind of a contribution to AoKaga month, so if I made someone happy by making it, know that I’m like 100 times more happy than you are, ‘cause it is just wonderful, alright. I need to stop my gross sobbing while writing this- Seriously, just wtf is wrong with me, I’m way too sensitive. ANYWAY, ENJOY AOKAGA MONTH, FELLOW AOKAGA SHIPPERS!

DO NOT RE-POST/USE/EDIT/CLAIM AS YOURS.

anonymous asked:

Do you think the ot5 reunion could possibly be this year??

At this point that’s exactly what I’m thinking.  Based on the chatter we’ve heard coming from various parts of the entertainment industry web, we seem to be headed for something around the end of the year.  Even if they don’t actually return by then, I think we’ll get more idea of a solid date at the very least.

There seems to be something going on right now because Niall’s album is officially delayed, we keep hearing nothing about Zayn’s 2nd album, and Liam’s first single should probably have come out by now and it hasn’t. They’re waiting for something which makes me fairly certain that none of those albums will be under 1DHQ.  The timing also makes me fairly certain that we’ll see some good things in the next month or two.

They stopped hinting at Zayn reconciling with the other boys sometime around March 2016.  They started slowly reintroducing the idea around late October or November 2016 and it’s definitely picked up since the new year started.  That trend along with the delays in the release of materials tells me we’re headed in a good direction.

You never know where the path to your dreams are gonna take you. This is little ol’ me, between the glossy pages of big ol’ Pride Magazine talking about the path to my dreams and it’s crazy to see in print. My mum  was  a dedicated reader of this mag and now she’s reading it with her daughter in it (you already know she posted it on Facebook to brag to her people lol). Like how dope is that? Every time I hit a new milestone I keep thinking ‘Fucking hell, I started this shit on Facebook and now look!’. It’s overwhelming, but it’s so fucking amazing.

Sometimes things will get tough and you will feel like throwing in the towel and getting a 'regular job’, but don’t. Those challenges are there to help you grow and to reiterate to the universe just how badly you want your dream. Work your ass off. Be grateful for every damn thing you get, good or bad. Love those who love you and pay no mind to those who don’t. You can do it, you can make shit happen. All you have to do is keep on going.

I know that the universe will continue to throw more greatness my way and it is my job to make sure that I am ready to receive it. I’m going all the way man.

“It’s a good life, Hazel Grace.”

WB Developing Live-Action ‘Static Shock’ Series and More DC Comics Spinoffs for Digital Platforms

Warner Bros. announced Blue Ribbon Content, its new digital short-form studio that will produce a number of live-action and animated series to debut on digital platforms.

The most exciting of its announced offerings, which will include a number of DC Comics spinoffs, is a live-action 'Static Shock’ series. The property tells the story of Virgil Hawkins, an inner-city kid who is exposed to a mutagenic gas, transforming him into Static, the cocky hero with mastery over electromagnetism. 

In addition to the comics, 'Static Shock’ had a run as a Kids WB! series in the early '00s, in which actor Phil LaMarr voiced Static.

In addition to the live-action 'Static Shock’ series, Blue Ribbon Content will also produce a new 'Mortal Combat’ series, a virtual reality 'Batman: The Animated Series’ experience, and “multiple projects” centered on DC Comics characters.
