Ok the cancellation of Sense8 was prefixed ok. It’s not like Netflix didn’t know how much the show was costing. They had a freaking budget for it. Netflix is basically a TV network now okay. Before they didn’t really had to advertise because they had rights to pretty much all the shows and movies. However, once other networks realized how good Netflix was doing, they stopped given out rights and started streaming themselves, hence Hulu etc. That’s around the same time Netflix started making their own shows (House of Cards, OITNB). Now they are heavily reliant on their original content, just like all the other networks, but guess what? They don’t do nearly as much advertising. If you are going to spend $9 million per episode of a show (which is the reported cost for Sense8 episodes), why the hell would you not advertise it?
Let’s take Game Of Thrones, for instance. That’s another show that is shot in various countries, and costs millions per episode to make. The new season is starting on July 16, but HBO has been advertising that show for weeks already. Not a day goes by where I log into Facebook and don’t see at least 1 ad for GoT. 2 Months before the season is out and they are already getting the hype up. You know many times I saw an ad for Sense8 anywhere? Not once! Aside from a little behind the scenes shoot a year ago (May, 2016), and the Christmas Special, there was nothing! I didn’t even get an e-mail from Netflix telling me that the season had started. My friend had to remind me. How many times did they show Sense8 on the log-in page? I didn’t see it a single time. Did you? The ad from The Crown still there though!
2 years making this season; took so long people completely forgot about it, and then when it finally comes out they just kind of put it out there. No fuss; like it was nothing. How many times did the actors show up on late night or any other popular talk show to promote Sense8? How many magazine spreads? Any promotional online photo-shoot and or campaign? Are you seriously going to tell me that they budgeted over $100 million dollars to produce the season of a show, and then expected to make their money back without any promotion? You don’t even have to be a business person to know how ridiculous that is. Anyone who’s ever made anything know that no one is going to buy your product, if they don’t know you’re selling it. The show doesn’t have a comic book following to back it up like the marvel shows, so it needs promoting. And with a nearly $100 million dollar budget, there is no way promotion and advertisement was overlooked. You don’t make a project that big and then just forget the fact that you need viewers watch it. This was done on purpose, and the fact that they are not even wrapping up the story shows exactly what kind of company Netflix is becoming.
Next year there’s gonna be 13 episodes on why some white boy became a school shooter, and another 12 on the shitty story a white boy with glowing fist doing bad fight choreography though! Herp derp
Why am I still seeing so many people use phrases like “hurr durr” or “herp derp” to indicate some level of silliness or stupidity?
These are ableist terms that essentially originated on 4chan to insult, mock, and harass developmentally disabled people, particularly autistics and folks with Downs Syndrome and similar.
The entire “joke” is ableist in its content. The “joke” is that the speaker is making sounds that are supposed to sound silly and unintelligent. The fact that the speaker sees these sounds as signs of stupidity is ableist because many disabled people make those sounds, regardless of individual intelligence level. (If you can even agree on what to measure as signs of “intelligence” but I digress.)
Please stop writing posts with these terms. Please stop reblogging posts with those terms without criticism. I’m getting so tired of seeing supposed activists put these phrases on their blogs. It’s painful every time I see it.
Red Team sans masks, “scanned” with my crappy 5 MP phone camera. My mental images are some weird combination of MCU, EMH, and 616 character designs at this point. (EMH is my canon for most fanworks, but there aren’t any Wade or Matt pics in there to base designs on…) Also, I finally drew a pic of Wade with his scars that somewhat looks like him. Yay!
Peter: I look about twelve, and my smile is the derpiest thing ever! 8D
Wade: OMG, me too! …And I smile pretty derpy, too. 8D [I also may or may not be pinching somebody’s ass.] [Shh, he won’t notice if you don’t say anything!]
That one time when arcanewinter and I were roomies and decided to take pictures of what we thought a week in the life of Roy and Ed would be like in skydark’s FMA:CoS AU fic where things don’t end up completely depressing.
I feel like sharing my story tonight. I hope this helps anyone who’s going through a rough time to know it does get better. So let me back track track bit….
Back in college I was dating dating guy, let’s call him Fred. Well, one night when Fred was out of town, one of his friends got me really drunk and raped me. I was too afraid to say anything and it really put a strain on my relationship. My grades slipped a bit and I became a slut. Now don’t get me wrong, I 100% believe any lady has the right to do what they want with their body. I began sleeping around for the wrong reasons though. I felt so alone and even if it only helped for a little while I did it. Because Fred was the only person that knew what had happened to me we continued dating on and off and it was a terrible relationship.
Eventually, I got some brains and left Fred. I moved to GA and started grad school. I even started dating rather than just sleeping around. I really felt like I was making progress. AND THEN I GOT HERPES. Yup I got the herp derp. I started dating a chemist (I’m in grad school for chemistry) and I thought things were great. We had sex one time, with a condom, and I got it. He never told me that he had it. I told him that I was sick and what he had given me… and all I got was an “oh sorry” and I never heard from him again. Just when I thought things were ok again, they weren’t.
Well, that was a year and a half ago. I still have struggles. I don’t really know if getting a phd is right for me. I’m still in the program but I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I did find a guy. We’ve been dating over 9 months now. He’s amazing and idk where I’d be without him. I would have never met him if I never got herpes. I met him in one of the secret support groups. He accepts me for everything I’ve been through.
I’m still learning and still growing. No, life isn’t perfect… but it is definitely getting better. Keep faith

In other news, I decided the title of the comic will now be Soul’s Fate, and the first chapter will be named Juxtapose. If you’re wondering why, you can check my previous updates lol. This means I will be changing any of my webcomic tags on tumblr to Soul’s Fate comic.
Herp derp that’s all for now
here, have a WIP
Philo’s got a yaoi hand goin there wow much huge teh fock Philo what do you put in your milk every morning
I was going though your art tag, amazing art by the way, and if you feel up to it Zombieman X Mumen Rider is a good ship and it would be interesting to see your version of it.
This was a hard request XD cause my brain was like “herp derp, wat is art,” also, I had no idea what I would draw them doing XD so after thouroughly thinking about it, a little thought came to mind and I couldnt stop laughing at the thought.
because like, what if Mumen Rider didn’t know Zombieman was a, you know, a zombie. And he just spots him, unconscious on the ground. and when he checs for heart beat, THERE IS NONE. AND CAN YOU IMAGINE THE POOR PANIC THIS BABY GOES THROUGH?
iT WOULD LOOK SOMETHING LIIKE:
MR:“Come one, come on! Stay with me, avoid the light!”
MR:“DAMN IT, I’M NOT GONNA LOSE YOU!”
ZM:“?!?!?!?!?!!” MR: “Hey! Welcome back!”
MR: “Wow, for a second, I thought I lost you” *Queue Angelic music*
MR: “NO, DAMN IT! STAY WITH ME!”
And I totally imagined Zombie man just passing out because CAN SOMETHING THIS CUTE ACTUALLY EXIST? DID HE ACTUALLY DIE AND GO TO HEAVEN THIS TIME?
If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home, home If you face the fear that keeps you frozen Chase the sky into the ocean That’s when something wild calls you home, home
While everyone else is running and screaming I just love being with you I guess they don’t see all the things that I’m seein’ That make you so uniquely you, you, you, you What do you get when you meet Godzilla and fall in love?
I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in I watched myself crawling out as I was a-crawling in I got up so tight I couldn’t unwind I saw so much I broke my mind I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go Where the wind don’t change And nothing in the ground can ever grow No hope, just lies And you’re taught to cry into your pillow But I survived I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
