That guy from Cartoon Brew is trying to get The Loud House cancelled just because of what Savino did.
So, the writer from Cartoon Brew has some nasty words about the crew that I wholly do not support, and I feel came out as unprofessional and crass.
The accusation was essentially anyone working on the show is benefiting the vision of a sexual predator.
I am going to say something entirely unpopular though, and that is, Loud house as a show is absolutely not whats important right now and I refuse to get in an emotional fit about something until we know the facts about it. Right now, we don’t know if any of this behavior occurred on the Loud house staff themselves or what anyone on productions history with something like this is.
If they want to push on with the show, thats fine, but everyone is getting in arms about how TLH should go on or be cancelled- Protect or Destroy, etc. Personally I say let’s be patient and supportive no matter what they do.
Though, I would like people to consider that, the reason Loud House feels like a smoking gun, is that while its the accumulative effort of a team, it is Chris Savino’s baby- and because of what Mr. Savino had done there is now animated work from women we will never ever see~ I adore the Loud house, but it really hurts thinking, oh I’m glad this guy got to have this show, while who knows how many young interns he tried to mess with where either fired or blacklisted and gave up on all of their animation dreams.
Is it appropriate to tear down TLH entirely? No, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t real emotional distress around it.
I give this moment of consideration because I just think before everyone starts prioritize the show above real people in this, it’s upsetting. Consider the cast, crew and staff, and also consider the victims. We can tal about the Status of Loud House after we know more.
Also beating a dead horse, but I still do adore the show and many of the staff are wonderful awesome people.
Obviously the world has changed dramatically since you were shooting this film. I can’t imagine you could anticipate the way those themes would resonate …
I did. And the reason why is that I’m Mexican. I’ve been going through immigration all my life, and I’ve been stopped for traffic violations by cops and they get much more curious about me than the regular guy. The moment they hear my accent, things get a little deeper.
I know it sounds kind of glib, but honestly, what we are living I saw brewing through the Obama era and the Clinton era. It was there. The fact that we got diagnosed with a tumor doesn’t mean the cancer started now.
Hopefully one of the things the movie shows is that from 1962 to now, we’ve taken baby steps — and a lot of them not everyone takes. The thing that is inherent in social control is fear. The way they control a population is by pointing at somebody else — whether they’re gay, Mexican, Jewish, black — and saying, “They are different than you. They’re the reason you’re in the shape you’re in. You’re not responsible.” And when they exonerate you through vilifying and demonizing someone else, they control you.
I think the movie says that there are so many more reasons to love than to hate. I know you sound a lot smarter when you’re skeptical and a cynic, but I don’t care.
But you’re not on a mission to change the way people see genre?
No, I can’t. I know that what I saw when I was a kid had redemptive powers. Some people find Jesus. I found Frankenstein. And the reason I’m alive and articulate and semi-sane is monsters. It’s not an affectation. It’s completely spiritually real to me. And I’m not going to change.
What I Thought Being a Witch was Like:
Rituals every full moon, mad divination powers and seeing the future, communing with crystals, one with the energy of the universe, brewing potions and making mad magic
What Being a Witch is Actually Like:
Drawing sigils to pass tests, asking tarot why I'm anxious and it not telling me, research, random spices on random foods, salt everywhere, stuffing leaves into bottles and hoping it works
Growing up in the south I have the fondest memories of sun tea made on hot days, using nothing but the sun’s warm rays to help the infusing process. I love sun tea because because it’s almost impossible to mess up, there isn’t any boiling water to worry about and almost no way to burn the leaves.
However, as a witch I have a new found appreciation. A simple drink can become a way to fill yourself with different magical properties. The sun itself is a catalyst for spells for vitality, clarity, health, happiness, and confidence. The best part is, ITS SO EASY.
FIRST: Pick the tea leaves for what you are trying to accomplish. Green tea is great for igniting passion, sexual health, and love. Black tea represents nature, strength, and is good for expelling and removing negative energies. Then we have herbal teas which are a whole other story with lots of different flavors and herbs with expansive options and magickal properties.
SECOND: Pick a few crystals to put on the lid or around the pitcher. Here I have crystal quartz and carnelian. I chose quartz for its ability to cleanse and enhance the crystals around it, and carnelian to help with anxiety and depression.
THIRD: Place outside or in a window with a lot of light and let the sun work its magic. During this time focus on what you are trying to manifest. Put all your intentions into the witchy brew. Remove tea bags when it reaches your desired color (I use six regular bags per two liters, but it’s up to you how strong you like your tea). Pour over ice and enjoy.
Optional: you can add cut fruit to further the intention. Strawberries, lemons, mint, or blood orange.
Some amazing combinations are:
🌞 Hibiscus tea and rose quartz for love
🌞 Black tourmaline and black tea for spirit cleansing
🌞 White tea and grapefruit for purification and uniting with the goddess of your choice
Really, the sky is the limit here. Try everything, there are no wrong answers.
Let me know what you guys try! I hope you enjoy this :)
SUPER EDIT: It was brought to my attention that I forgot to include some serious food safety tips with this, so here they are.
I’ve been drinking this for 24~ years? With no issue because I do the following:
- use purified water, most bacteria comes from the water itself in addition to things like unsanitized pitchers and what not. - do not leave the tea out for more than the intended brewing time (15-30 minutes). - only make what you intend to drink that day. - keep in the refrigerator no longer than 72 hours. - use tea leaves that come from sealed packages and are not expired. - if tea ever develops ropey looking strands, toss it and wash the container with hot water and soap (I also will rinse with vinegar).
New to witchcraft or want to expand your library? Here are two wonderful books.
The first book, The Book of Kitchen Witchery, is a very good book for anyone starting out and wanting to learn the basics. It gives you a step by step how to set up an altar, how to purify your sacred space, seasons/holidays of the year, how to make different potions, and brews with herbs you grow and cultivated. You can buy this book here: https://www.amazon.com/Book-Kitchen-Witchery-recipes-enchanted/dp/1782493727
The second book, The Hearth Witch’s Compendium, is my personal favorite. You really can’t go wrong with adding this to the collection of books you have at home. Not only does it give the basics on witchcraft, but gives a complete guide on what herbs treat and heal certain illnesses. Many recipes on brews, tinctures, potions, and so much more! You won’t regret this book, I promise! You can buy this book here: https://www.amazon.com/Hearth-Witchs-Compendium-Magical-Natural/dp/0738750468
just throwin’ it out there. my headcanon theory before the Season Finale next week. Could it be possible that Alice Cooper or rather Alice is a descendant of a witching family?….and that she’s related to the Spellmans who lives in Greendale? (In the comics, her maiden name is Smith…but who knows what it is in Riverdale.) She’s constantly using terms like “brew” and “banish” and “witching hour”….. and i’m wondering if perhaps she’s the black sheep of the family that doesn’t want to accept her witchcraft lineage and instead decided to shun her family, move away from SouthSide, marry Hal and build a fresh new life for herself. Kinda like Petunia Dursley…. and maybe that’s the secret that she’s been hiding. xD Or….. perhaps when they were in school, she along with Penelope delved into some witchcraft…. that would explain why she kept insinuating how evil the Blossom’s are. Wild theory, I know. xD
DEADLINE: With over 10 million viewers watching the 9 PM broadcast and growing each week, plus all those on the other platforms, I think it’s pretty clear they are going to stick around, if for nothing else to see what brews up between Jon and Dany…
ALAN TAYLOR: (Laughs) There’s been an inevitability to the two of them coming together. It’s been foreshadowed over and over again, and those who know the books know it’s inevitable, but that doesn’t tell you anything about how it’s going to play out or how it’s going to go. I remember when I was doing Season 1 and we were on location in Malta, and George R. R. Martin came to visit. He was sitting in a chair, and he was being really quite open about things that were to come…
DEADLINE: About Jon and Dany or Game of Thrones in general?
ALAN TAYLOR: Bit of both, but it was early days and nobody was paying attention to the show. We didn’t really know what a phenomenon it was going to be, and I think he was being less guarded than we’ve become since then. Anyways, he alluded to the fact that Jon and Dany were the point, kind of. That, at the time, there was a huge, vast array of characters, and Jon was a lowly, you know, bastard son. So it wasn’t clear to us at the time, but he did sort of say things that made it clear that the meeting and the convergence of Jon and Dany were sort of the point of the series.
So, I was happy that a big step forward was taken in the episode I got to do this season is where he has fallen for her both, you know, emotionally and politically I think. He recognizes what she’s capable of, and is ready to bend the knee as soon as his knees bend. There’s still a step further to go with them in terms of the romantic side of things and a lot more to play out in terms of how the politics and the power struggle will work, but it was at least a sort of solid step forward in that major arc.
My life really took a turn for the better once I embraced casual witchcraft.
I spent so long thinking I had to do these big spells, or sachets, or build up all these fancy ingredients for one thing– and I do do those, when it’s necessary, but it isn’t the witchcraft that really brightens up my life. The magic that makes me happy is what I put into the bread I bake, the tea I brew, the words I write, the jewelry I craft. Just a little bit goes a long way. It’s much easier to feel the difference of a lot of small things than one big thing.
Embrace casual witchcraft. Don’t push yourself too hard. Just do.
Everyone returns to Hogwarts after the war, but nothing is quite the same. Harry’s groupies are creepier than ever, Ron and Hermione are snogging all over the place, and the once-proud Draco is shuffling around like a kicked puppy. But that’s okay: Harry’s got a plan.
Spiders, rats, wrongly-boiled Veritaserum, a couple of dangerous bets and drunk parties – all with all, it was bound to be a hectic eight year at Hogwarts for the golden trio. Trying to ignore the ex-Death Eater Draco Malfoy, however, turned out to be more difficult than ever before. Especially when he seemed to be as obsessed with Harry as Harry was with him. DRARRY. SLASH. Rating may go up in future chapters.
Harry returns to Hogwarts for his 8th year, determined not to let Malfoy get to him. But when the snarky teasing starts up again, Harry finds that returning the jibes with compliments has a far more interesting outcome.
Harry returns to Hogwarts for his “8th year” in order to pass his N.E.W.T.s and make it into the Auror program. One of his classes is Muggle Studies and the new teacher has a brilliant idea to help them appreciate certain forms of Muggle entertainment.
Draco should have taken his NEWTs over the summer with Pansy and Greg. Repeating 7th year with Potter fresh off his saved-the-world tour struck Malfoy as the height of stupidity more than once. McGonagall’s diabolical plan only made things worse. Or did it?
Draco is pining after Harry, but is so sure that his feelings aren’t reciprocated that he wastes a golden opportunity. Pansy comes to the rescue and takes matters into her own hands to ensure a happy ending.
It’s a age-old story. You fancy a boy and you think he fancies you. Sure there are problems – attacks on former Death Eaters, crazed tabloid journalists and your girlfriend – but you have a cunning plan. Now if he’d only explain the L. Ron Hubbard-like references …
From the prompt: “What if one day everyone was brewing Amortentia and Harry walks in. Of course, he doesn’t know what they’re brewing, so the first thing he says is ‘Why does the room smell like it’s drenched in Malfoy’s cologne’ and then everyone, including Draco, just looks at him.
Harry felt Malfoy’s breath on his lips as they came together over the bottle, hands firmly planted on the floor as though they each needed their familiar soil, refusing to cross into enemy territory. Except that Malfoy no longer felt like his enemy.
Harry has no idea why Hermione decided that an inter-house Games Night would be a good idea, but he’s here now, and he intends to beat Malfoy, no matter what game he chooses. But, who would have thought muggle games could be full of so much… tension?
Dear Diary by AWickedMemory (ReadyPlayerZero) Words:20427
After the war, Harry picks up a journal to write in… and it writes back. Luckily, it’s not a Horcrux on the other end this time.
On returning to Hogwarts for their Eighth Year, Headmistress McGonagall decided to room Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter together. She may have hoped for a leading example of house unity; the other students fully expected insults and fights. But nothing happened.
That was, until Harry sleepwalked into Draco’s bed.
It’s a jinx that renders the victim mute, unless he/she serves the purpose of the jinx and kisses the person that they desire. It’s just Harry’s luck that he’s in love with Draco. HPDM, oneshot, eighth year.
The room of requirement’s gone mad — at least, that’s what Harry thinks. There’s no way that Draco Malfoy ‘requires’ him, of all people, but why does it keep dragging Harry there like he’s some kind of furniture, every time Malfoy enters it? Throw in Pansy the pervert and a clipboard-wielding Hermione, and things can only go from bad to worse. And that’s not even mentioning the pirates …
I’ve been listening to old episodes of My Brother, My Brother, and Me and I got to Episode 276, which was released on November 10, 2015
In the opening of this episode, the brothers apologize for being late releasing it and explain their lateness by recounting the many gastrointestinal maladies that were visited upon their houses, selves, and families.
On the surface, there is nothing unusual or suspicious about this. They have poop problems all the time, and they talk about it all the time. But two facts show something deeper going on.
First, only two brothers were affected by this poopy plague: Travis was spared.
Second, they casually mention a video game that was released recently, and that this game’s release perfectly correlated with their ailments. That game is Fallout 4.
This MBMBaM episode was released on November 10, 2015. Just two days later, on November 12, 2015, an episode of Monster Factory is released. In that episode, the Final Pam is first revealed to us.
The Final Pam’s birth is thought to be in that episode, but as we know, there is no making or unmaking of the Final Pam. She is and was and will be.
So what I hypothesize is this: that the first manifestation of the Final Pam on this mortal plane is not in that first episode of Monster Factory. Instead she manifested in plague that came upon Griffin and Justin, and their houses. She is both the horseman heralding her arrival, and the disaster that is to arrive.
The boys were warned. There were signs of her coming through the gastrointestinal body horror that came upon our Monster Factory hosts, and those signs were not heeded.
Hey there, my witches! I decided to put together a 30 Days of Witchcraft Challenge that you can answer by photograph, blog post, or both! This will also be hosted on my new Instagram account, so you can participate there as well! (Follow @saltwaterwitchery on IG!)

A/N: Okay ya’ll there is at least going to have to be a part 2 to this because it’s getting so long. I’ve had this idea brewing for a while, so let me know what you think! (And watch for part 2 later this week)
You stepped out of the elevator, your bright lapis blue suede high heels clicking softly with each step. You were wearing the usual on top – a fitted black dress, as was dress code. Today, your dress had triangular shaped mesh cut outs. Might as well go out with a bang, you thought whilst dressing yourself this morning. Your gold necklace continued to bounce with each step you took as you approached the corner that would take you directly past the boss’s office.
