what a gimmick

Here’s the Cartoon Network schedule for Monday, March 27 to Sunday, April 2 again, but now with Saturday, April 1!

So yeah, that April Fools Day lineup… unique, I have to say. Dunno what the gimmick will be, but at least it has some sense in variety. Adventure Time gets reruns for literally the first time since July (excluding Stakes).

Steven Universe and Clarence lose their slots on Sunday, but we get a new addition to the movie lineup: Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Neato.

Why am I not showing the schedules for Monday, April 3 to Thursday, April 7 yet? Sometimes it takes time for CN to update their schedule past the first Monday of a month. Give them time.

New episodes from Thurs-Sun:

  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Thursday at 5:30p
  • Teen Titans Go! - Friday at 6:00p
  • The Powerpuff Girls - Friday at 7:45p

No Justice League Action and LEGO Nexo Knights this week, it seems.

Top 3 shows:

  • Teen Titans Go! - 156 - 43%
  • The Amazing World of Gumball - 96 - 26%
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - 56 - 15%

The top 3 shows are roughly 84% of the schedule.

reasons why allen is an enderman:

-tall and kinda creepy but overall pretty chill if you leave them alone
-mysterious and dangerous at first but after seeing 3 more times, you’re more annoyed if anything
-screams and runs away when you make eye contact with them
-attacks you when you get too close to their personal space
-wears black all the time
-picks up trash and keeps it cuz it’s neat
-shows up in a dark corner of your house, disappears when you try to look for them
-probably worships a dragon from another dimension

The two best friends got down to their underwear before getting onstage to receive their award. But what seemed like an unnecessary gimmick, Joseph explained that before the two got their big break, they would watch the Grammys in their underwear.

“Josh turned to me – and we were no one that the time – and he said, ‘You know, if we ever go to the Grammys, if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this,’” Joseph said.

  • Qrow: Alright what's your gimmick?
  • Hazel: Our what?
  • Qrow: Your gimmick. All the other Grimm were monsters and crap. What are you?
  • Dr. Watts: We're here to take down the kingdoms. But if I have to choose I guess I'm the dignified one.
  • Qrow: Eh 6 out of 10.
  • Dr. Watts: You sassy bitch.
  • Qrow *addresses Tyrian*: Then that makes you the crazy one.
  • Tyrian: AN EYE FOR AN EYE!
  • Qrow: Spectacular. *Then addresses Hazel* And that would make you no doubt the big, tough, stupid one.
  • Hazel: You take that back or I'll kill you!
  • Qrow: Alright! Alright! You're not tough!
  • Hazel: That's better.
  • Ruby: Uh...Uncle Qrow?

  • Hazel: .....Hey!

“So there is a rumor going around about the chance of WWE buying out ROH, with that said I hope it doesn’t happen. Although ROH isn’t what it used to be, it’s got some truly brilliant talent that has more of a say in what they do gimmick wise and their matches are always brilliant. WWE is getting greedy, and we know it’s because their ratings aren’t great and they’re trying to buy into talent that they’re just going to waste. They’ve got enough talent as it is that they don’t use”

  • Qrow: Winter why are you drunk?
  • Winter: Anything you can do I can do better.

  • Winter: I'm picking her up from school like a good uncle.
  • Ruby: Help me
  • Qrow: Winter you don't need to try to be me what possessed you to-
  • Winter: Shut up, I can be irresponsible and get away with it while making snide remarks just as well as you. *Hic*. Uhhhhh, you're stupid.
  • Qrow: Winter you're terrible at this.
  • Winter: Than what am I good at? Completing missions? Look I try to act all business like and shit but somedays I just ask myself how people look at me and, frankly, I've come to the conclusion they don't. What's my identity? My gimmick? My edge? I'm not *Hic* cool and shit like you and Ozpin and all the kids think I'm lame. I thought if I drank I'd...
  • Qrow: Yeah i get that but right now you're just pathetic.

Neve: hey!

after episode 6 im 99% convinced that yuuri and victor are already in a relationship.

no seriously hear me out. this is just a theory but im v passionate about it

like we’ve already mentioned before, time is going by in the series. like, its skips a lot. victor first arrived in april and we’re already by at least september (last weeks episode was certainly september, i cant remember when china’s competition took place in this episode). 

so what if yuuri and victor started dating somewhere between all those months (or fairly recently, after months of knowing each other) and we’re just supposed to know it?? (which, imho, would be better if they straight up mentioned it but. censorship i guess)) 

these are no longer hints of them liking each other (like in the first few episodes), these are hints that they’re already in a relationship.

first off, and we’re starting off p tame, the hugs. since last episode, weve noticed that theyre… pretty physical (specially victor). and its NOT made out to be a big deal (except for certain scenes in particular, where the hugs/contact was relevant to the situation e.g. when yuuri got nervous and victor hugged him from behind to help him calm down). victor will walk up behind yuuri and hug him and they stay like that and thats it. no biggie. but it says a lot about how close and comfortable they are at this point. when they were in the plane? victor was sleeping leaning on yuuri. when victor got drunk, yuuri was p chill til he started to strip.

second, when phichit publishes the picture of naked victor clinging to yuuri, what’s yuuri’s first concern?

yup that’s what worries him

usually when gimmicks like these are used on anime, the character reacts like “OH NO NOW EVERYONES GONNA THINK WE’RE GAY!! THIS IS NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE” WHICH IS NOWHERE NEAR HOW YUURI REACTED

AND WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED

do i even need to get into thi s scene. do i really

(also please note victor wasnt flustered, but slightly surprised. not because yuuri was being affectionate, but because yuuri was being the one taking iniciative.)

and now the final blow

boom goes the dynamite

whats that????? hes not talking about his love for victor, but victor’s love for him???? OH???? SO HE KNOWS IT’S NOT ONE-SIDED??

SO YEAH i mean at the end of it all take this w a grain of salt but. what this could be is not the buildup to a romantic relationship but the flourishing of one

You know, it’s weird realizing that Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure has a very obvious toyetic gimmick that one could translate into a toyline for kids.

Namely, Each figure is a two-pack, with the user and the Stand. Complete with action features involving the interaction of both,

And, for those of y’all saying it’s a terrible idea to market Jojo to kids, friendly reminder that at certain points there were Robocop, Rambo, Aliens and Toxic freaking Avenger toys marketed towards kids, so this ain’t quite out of the ordinary.

Though, I do have my own idea for a more “kid friendly” Jojo adaptation, of sourts, from scratch, that I think even Jojo fans would like…
