whatever the point is for the humor

i can’t believe i have to make this post in the year 2017 but any jokes made towards people of color at the expense of facial features not adhering to eurocentric ideas of beauty is racist. people of color literally spend most of their lives hating themselves for having facial features that dont match up with “small button nose, thin lips and thin eyebrows” and then whatever confidence in these features they may later obtain can be swept away in an instant by one “joke”. idc if the people making the jokes arent even white, if you’re maliciously pointing out someone’s big nose/thick eyebrows/big lips etc and making them the butt of a joke you arent funny and you arent clever. and if you really think these “jokes” are funny then you desperately need to reevaluate your sense of humor. like just sit there and explain to me what’s so funny about poking fun at any of these facial features without making an ass of yourself. i’ll wait

I keep thinking about how Baze used to be the most devout 

and like you could argue that the rise of the Empire and all the destruction and suffering it brought with it was the catalyst that made him give up his faith, but something about that doesn’t really compute because despite all that Chirrut still manages to keep his faith, and Baze was supposed to be even MORE dedicated than him

And now there’s that line in the novelisation that’s like “Baze Malbus had always needed comfort more than humor”

What happened to him

What happened to Baze? Was it an event that caused him to snap? Was it whatever it was that caused Chirrut to lose his sight? I noticed (and I’ve seen a couple of people point out actually) that Chirrut has to sit a lot, and like he totally kicks ass, but he also seems to get tired pretty easily (after his fight with the stormtroopers, and when they’re on scarif). Maybe it was his realisation that the force couldn’t even protect its most devoted followers.

OR, and I mean this is what I think in my head, it was a gradual sort of thing. I guess I kind of like the idea because it reminds me of a lot of real world stories about people with faith. It reminds me of the idea that a person who has a lot of faith can still get tied up in their own ability to solve problems, that can cause them to give that faith up. I imagine that the more Baze tried to take up the burden of what he was doing to help, the less he was able to trust in some additional all-powerful entity. If “the force” did not will for Chirrut to be safe, perhaps he could make it so himself.

Like Chirrut obviously cares a lot about Baze too but he’s more chill about it because he looks out for Baze but he trusts in the force to guide them about that too. But Baze shoulders all of that responsibility himself. “Baze Malbus had always needed comfort more than humor” ANYWAY EITHER WAY I’M SAD 

NETFLIX’S SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS IS FORTUNATELY FANTASTIC.

Netflix’s new series is a fantastic adaptation of the Series of Unfortunate Events, and it follows the books very faithfully while also adding in twists and turns that have genuinely caught me off guard. The humor is en pointe, and it’s such a treat to rediscover a series that I started reading over 15 years ago. The number of literary references and sly adult jokes that flew by me as a child are a delight to catch now. I can’t recommend this show enough- whatever you do, don’t look away from it.

Would you like to see the return of Forest Patrol? I still think that was one of the most underrated segments that Rhett and Link ever did, probably because it was on the Mythical Show.

I generally love anything that showcases R&L’s dark humor, it makes up some of my favorite videos of theirs (BFFs, Famous Last Words, etc.). I’d be down for more of it in whatever form it takes.

Gus: It’s past want, at this point. I mean, I feel like I need energy balls.
Russel: They are mildly habit forming, so you need to keep that in mind.
Gus: I dream about them things, I want ‘em real bad. Like, what do you put in there to make me want ‘em so bad?
Russel: It’s simple. It’s sugar and it’s butter and a little bit of flour.
Russel: …
Russel: And um… nicotine.

“You don’t have room to talk,” Louis says, pointing a finger at Harry and narrowing his eyes. “Seeing as how you were seventy five million years late to the meeting today.”

“Well I’m bloody well here now!” Harry shouts. Everyone goes quiet, Zayn even manages to pause whatever Robert Downey Jr. is doing on the telly, and it’s right then, in the middle of the first split second of quiet since Harry arrived that he hears it.

“Wait,” Harry says, cocking his head to the side and listening more closely. “Is that a baby crying?”

OR: Niall gets a baby left w him and Harry moves in to help him take care of her

Mad Libs

“Okay, now I need a noun.”, Peter said wiggling the pencil between his fingers.
Wade paced back and forth on the ledge of the apartment complex’s rooftop with his arms out to keep his balance.
“Chimichanga.”
“You already used chimichanga. Twice.”
“You can nver have too many chimichangas.”
Peter gave Wade a pointed look under his Spider-Man mask.
Wade grinned, “Dildo.”
Peter smirked in spite of himself. Their sense of humor was childish and they had no shame. Peter wrote “dildo” in the blank space on the paper.
“Give me an adverb.”
Wade thought for a moment before answering, “obscenely.”
“That’s a good SAT word.”, Peter remarked as he wrote it down.
“Sure is. Remember that one, youngin. You can use it on your big boy test.”, Wade laughed.
Peter rolled his eyes under his mask and chuckled.
“Whatever, grandpa. You wanna read the story now?”
Wade hopped off the ledge and plopped down next to Peter, “Of course, I’m reading to read my masterpiece.”
Wade skimmed the mad libs paper before handing it back to Peter.
“Its beautiful. Shakespeare ain’t got nothing on me.”
“Your eloquent use of the word ‘dicktit’ will astound generations. My turn, you write now.”

Oh my Nova, I love your art style! Really! The facial expressions are absolutely AMAZING!! And the humor in most of your drawings is spot on! Oh man, I'm rambling, but I really cant help it at this point; your art is just way too good! I hope you have a great night or day!(whatever time it is when you get this) Bye for now!

*blub* Thank yoo so much T-T It’s so kind of you to say such lovely things. I try hard to draw things for people to enjoy even when I’m tired from my busy work schedule so messages like this make me so happy. It means so much to hear/read something so encouraging. I’ll keep working hard to make art that you’ll enjoy, and thank you again!

genuinely ive gotten to the point where extremely self deprecating humor about like wanting to throw yourself in the void or whatever or like “"nihilism memes”“ are just really unfunny and also kind of worrying. maybe i sound lame and boring but i just don’t think jokes where the punchline is wanting to die But Ironically! are all that funny

The second episode of Samurai Jack Season 5 doesn’t let up on the “Holy Crap!” pedal one bit.  Doling out blood, naked violence, and even suicidal contemplation, the series is having a lot of fun with its new mature setting, and I’m loving (almost) every minute of it.

Seeing Aku again was a humorous little distraction in an otherwise dark and relentlessly action-packed episode, and his appearance threw light on something quite interesting: whatever his “cult” had planned concerning the Daughters of Aku and disposing of his arch-nemesis, apparently he had no part in it.  How - or even if - the cultists are connected to him, and what this bodes for their actions in the future, is a deliciously pregnant plot point now awaiting further exploration.

Can’t say I was fond of the overt symbolism concerning the wolf and the green-blooded tiger…things, but they weren’t too intrusive.  Much of cat-and-mouse game through the temple was accompanied by a blaring, base-beating soundtrack that, while cool and fitting at most points, had me at times longing for the series’ practiced skill in incorporating tense silence into its narrative structure.  Here’s hoping that they haven’t abandoned that.

All in all, another cool episode, and I’m looking forward to next week.

Montparnasse would be the sort of teacher that’s very sarcastic and has a really dry sense of humor and never smiles at all but whenever he voluntarily sits in in Jehan’s class he’s always sharing stuff about himself and whatever he knows about the subject and won’t stop smiling
(this leads to debate between the students; ex. “You’re fucking joking, whenever he comes into my class he can’t stop smiling and making moon eyes at Mx. Prouvaire!!” “I’ll actually fight; sit in on our class in one day and you’ll swear all the life has been sucked out of him at one point.”)

“people can draw any character the way they like #artists get to draw whatever the hell they want #dont like it? #move on”

Yeah, uh, aside from missing the point, that pretty much means I can draw things to humorously criticise artists who purposely whitewash, so that’s 10 points for us.

Where, oh where, to begin? Maybe I will start from my conversation with Lisa and move backwards. I find it a bit frustrating that my employer is making statements about me and Tom on a personal level. Sure, we have both worked for Lisa for years, but her knowledge of who we are outside work is extremely limited. I couldn’t help but wonder where Lisa got the idea that Tom is a “charming devil” (or whatever she said). I have known Tom for four years now and for the first three of those years when we were just friends, we certainly never had any need or desire to impress one another or put on any kind of act. I have never felt it appropriate to use the word “charming” to describe him. Tom is goofy, smart, creative, and kind, with a seriously oddball sense of humor.
To bring me to my next point, the idea that somehow he has “charmed” me into some sort of stupid sheep is unfathomable. This whole “love is blind” thing is a concept that I have never understood nor subscribed to in my life. It goes against every fiber of who I am as a person. This is why it is so beyond frustrating for those words to ever be used in reference to me. What is and has always been important to me in all matters is facts and logic. I know that I have said this before, but it seems as though I can say things a thousand times and somehow never be heard or taken seriously. I was a theatre major in college, but I always excelled in math and sciences. Do you know why I enjoy those things so much? The answers are black and white (very few exceptions when you get into the advanced or theoretical subjects). I approach situations in my own life with this same mental approach. Given that knowledge, would it make one iota of sense that I would blindly follow anyone? Ever? No. Discretely leaving Sur was the best thing we could have done in that moment. I refuse to lose my job over petty dramatics or be a participant in this game. Does anyone really think that Tom should have stood there in the middle of the lounge with customers present and be a part of a disgusting screaming match with those girls? I would hope not. So, let’s get into the facts that provide me with all of this confidence on the subject, shall we?
Below is a list of things that were said and the facts that refute those things:
“We talked for 7 hours”- I would really love to know how talking to someone for that long, or at all, would be physically possible if Tom was on the phone with me multiple times for prolonged periods throughout the night in question. Not only that, but during said conversations Tom described to me these three girls who were fans of the show who seemed to be asking a lot of questions about it and creeping him out. Tom is a very nice and welcoming person so, when he is expressing discomfort at someone’s presence in the group, you know he isn’t kidding.
“He held my hand”- The only reason the three guys were in Miami was because they were doing paid club appearances. Therefore, they were advertised and overtly informed people where they would be at all times. People came to see them, meet them, and take photos. Again, please explain to me how this would have happened and it would be plausible that there would be no photos or recounts of this from anyone else. Also, wouldn’t Tom have to be as brain-dead as a piece of plywood to do that? She really should have considered these things before she started all of these lies. At least pepper your story with details that are believable.
“I found her on social media”- This all began when this story was sold to a tabloid for monetary compensation. Upon first hearing of it, I immediately saw multiple red flags and contradictions to what I know to be true based on many factors. Not only did she admit that she sold it and her reasons for doing so (Jax was holding her laptop until she and her friend paid him back for items they charged on his card and she was vewwy vewwy mad about it), but her story has warped at least a handful of times since its original print version.
“He’s still in love with Kristen”- LOL
“It fits the description”- Oh, let me guess, Tom’s penis is shaped like a penis? This actually might have been a good one if we weren’t fully aware that Kristen and this girl talked for months about this or if Tom had any kind distinct penile attribute.
Supplemental item #1- My brother went on this trip with them. It was actually really cool to see and hear him and Tom begin a friendship that has truly blossomed from there.
Supplemental item #2- The night this all happened at Sur, Tom and I were in the back parking lot chatting before we left. Around the corner comes an extremely irate Miami girl. Plain as day, she shouted “This isn’t how Kristen promised it would be!”
Can I please rest my case?
Despite all of this, people will say whatever they want to say. They always have and they always will. I have done what is in my power to shed light on these allegations, but I do not preside over the court of public opinion. As far as I know, a romantic relationship is between two people and not the entire cast of a show plus its audience. I will always get heated when I see people I know so well and care about being dragged through the mud. It upsets me when anyone speaks poorly of my friends. I don’t typically jump in the ring for myself, but I do for them.
I thank Scheana for speaking up about the whole thing. I hope she sees now that I am not only happy and in love, but that I don’t have any reason not to trust Tom. He has always made sure that I don’t have to play guessing games or wonder for a moment what the truth is. I have to give him a lot of credit. We all have a past. We all have previous relationships. We have all made mistakes in our lives. Tom has learned from his past mistakes (as have I), and never have I experienced a relationship that is so solid, open, and loving. I try every day to treat Tom with the same love and respect he has shown me. We have all heard that true love is rare and hard to find. We are so lucky to be able to experience that with each other. On that note, I have some serious cuddling to do.
