I still can’t let go of grandmother yet but I’m trying hard too, I’ll hold it back and work hard to become grandma’s grandson, a beautiful grandson, so please look after me. Receive a lot of luck and thank you for having raised me up. I love you.

I have given a New Year message separately but now that I got a chance to say it again through the “thanks to”, I want to write it down even if just shortly. Thank you so much to everyone and I love you! Fighting to the start of 2017!

Successful People Start Before They Feel Ready

“If you’re working on something important, you’ll never feel ready. A side effect of doing challenging work is that you’re pulled by excitement and pushed by confusion at the same time.” – James Clear

The Start-Up Guy is well underway. I have been working with several businesses, including a very exciting Johannesburg-based business which is launching in the next two months. I am so honoured that they used and continue to use my services.  

I’ve noticed a common trait amongst all the guys and girls I’ve been working with recently, and I thought it might be useful to share because I think many other people are experiencing the same thing.

Almost all entrepreneurs don’t know what they’re doing and it’s perfectly okay. In fact, I don’t know of a single one who, at the outset, knew exactly what they needed to do and when to do it. Before your mind does that thing where it jumps to conclusions, let me explain.

A start-up is an experiment, a matter of trial and error. No one can be fully certain about the route it will take. At best, one can have a firm idea of the intended outcome, but whether that transpires is all dependent on the market’s response to your idea (and who really knows what that’ll be? Right?).

Sir Richard Branson has one of the most interesting entrepreneurial stories, for me, because he started many of his companies largely by mistake. He dropped out of school to continue a magazine business he had no idea was going to sustain him. As a way to grow his magazine sales, he started distributing music records made by unknown artists to his readers, and so began the journey of Virgin Records. He started Virgin Airlines after he was delayed by his flight facing maintenance issues before take-off. This guy is the epitome of just getting on with it. This guy is also worth $5 Billion today!

As an entrepreneur and business owner you have to embrace the learning process and continuously learn (by doing). Learn your market, learn your business, and continuously adapt your learnings to suit your market as you go. The entrepreneurs who embrace the learning process and respond to unexpected events in real time are often the ones who do very well.

Without babbling on for too long, the moral of the story is that not knowing what to do is not a good enough reason to not start your business. Passion and a basic idea is enough. Even if you are physically incapable of carrying out certain tasks, outsourcing skills is a thing (like helluurrr, this is why people like me are here). It is no mistake that one of the single most important traits that investors look for in entrepreneurs is passion, especially in the very early stages of a start-up. Not “intelligence.” Not qualifications. Passion (synonymous with commitment/dedication in this regard). A founder who is not passionate about what they are doing will give up when they face the inevitable hurdles of starting a business. Passion is the fuel by which a project goes from start-up to a fully-fledged business.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that you can go and start the next big business with the technical skills of a toddler. I am merely saying that, within reason, you can start a business without the technical know-how, as long as you have the dedication to follow through with the necessary steps. In doing so, be realistic, tread carefully and always consult a professional when you’re thinking about making an expensive decision.

If whilst reading this article you had a certain project or idea in mind, maybe it’s time to pursue it with everything you have. Why aren’t you? That was not a rhetorical question. Like Richard Branson famously said, “screw it. Just get on and do it.” If you are really struggling with how to conceptualise or begin your business, consult me and we can find a solution together. 

Once again, thank you for reading.

The amount of straight up bullshit circulating about the Wonder Woman marketing is magical: Warner Bros is NOT spending less money on her marketing and they are NOT trying to the the movie to fail. You sudden business majors popping up when it comes to just the dceu may want to do a bit more research instead of letting your confirmation bias keep you from going to google and finding facts yourself. Besides the stupidity of statements saying that the only comic book company so far that’s out here announcing female lead movies (plural, and not sharing any billing with a dude) would want their biggest female character to fail, the numbers don’t back y’all up either. 

Wonder Woman’s marketing budget so far has been $3,043,212 for ads; for comparison, the marketing budget for Suicide Squad in the five weeks leading up to its release was $2,645,643. Which, if you use those business math brains of yours, means that so far the WW marketing has been more than what was spent on SuSq, and we still have roughly four weeks of marketing left. Then there’s the traditional marketing found in grocery stores, which have already started and are big part of marketing on their own. 

So, to sum up: don’t be stupid, don’t read one opinion article and think it’s spilling some Tea™ when the cup is full of cold dirty water, and go watch Wonder Woman because she’s great and WB/DC knows that too.

like you go out to breakfast with your girl and spend the whole time cracking each other up and you get bubble wands and a cheap kite and go to the marina cause it’s a weirdly warm day and you run around like little kids laughing and blowing bubbles and failing miserably at flying a kite and who cares and you go to the farmer’s market and plan all your meals to cook together for the week and she’s standing in the kitchen that’s finally an ours because you finally share a home together and she’s just breaking up kale to make kale chips and you can’t stop glowing looking at her because she’s the most beautiful fucking incredible woman on earth and you both know it’s forever when you look at each other like that’s my wife i found her

Let’s remember kanji with Johnnys

Because Sho-kun made an important comment (and we wish it so badly)



「〈S〉Should I start Insta?」

「〈S〉Talvez eu deva abrir (”começar”) um Insta?」

始めようかな is the junction of the verb hajimeyou with “かな~”(ka na~) that gives the idea of “maybe/I’m supposing and waiting for your comment about it”. 

始めようかな  é a junção do verbo hajimeyou com “ かな~ “(ka na~) que dá a ideia de “talvez/ eu estou supondo e esperando pelo seu comentário a respeito”.

The Handmaid’s Tale: marketing, then and now

Comparing the Hulu adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale to the 1990 version is… weird, because the old one seems to have been made with a “haha, this could never happen; let’s play it like a fun adventure thriller and sell it as sexy as possible!” kind of attitude. I mean, the trailer has this bouncy narration that starts with “once upon a time…” and turns the dystopian element into more of a soap opera.

And just take a look at the promotional art:

(…I don’t think that was the message of the book, guys. Sure, Offred was longing for human touch, or pretty much any kind of human connection, but I think that the book was more about women being reduced to wombs with legs, not state-owned prostitutes… It was about the desperation of needing to give birth or face punishment. Everything about this dystopia was hyper-de-sexualized.)

Oh, and my favorite:

“A psychosexual movie shocker.” With what looks like half the cover of a cheesy romance novel, minus some buff shirtless guy.

(I also think it’s kind of funny that they say “once upon a time in the near future” sex became used for control and domination, as if rape and prostitution haven’t existed for centuries… but okay…)

I’ll admit I haven’t seen this version (or the Hulu one, for that matter), but I do appreciate that they cast a properly old and creepy man in the part of the Commander, and a properly aged woman for his Wife. The Hulu casting is a little youthful, if you ask me; the book characters felt very weathered, and I think it mentioned that they were supposed to be quite a bit older than Offred. Her “affair” with the Commander is supposed to feel very weird and unsettling, partially because he’s this old man who wants someone to play Scrabble with and dress up in sequins.

Anyway, then we had what I call the “holy shit these dystopias are too real” phase, culminating with the new Hulu adaptation of this particular dystopia, which is waaaay too relevant to today’s issues.

See? This is how you depict the feeling of objectification. Not with a topless woman bathed in flattering lighting – by objectifying a woman yourself, you’re not sending a message so much as continuing the trend. Especially when you sell your film as some kind of sexy romance. “Branded, sold, controlled: she belongs to The State” doesn’t quite cut it; this very simple, very clear message does. Offred is no longer human, she doesn’t have a face; she is just an object. Objectified.

(This also has some fantastic layering because it recalls the messages that you might find scrawled across the bathroom mirror meant to demean other girls; part of Gilead’s system involves pitting women against each other: Wives against Handmaids, Handmaids against Aunts, even Handmaids against each other out of jealousy and in the Red Center with their slut-shaming. To stay in power, the men at the top make sure that the women below them are too occupied with resenting each other that they forget to look up at who the real enemy is.)

*holy FUCK*

Now THAT is how you market a dystopia. This story is not some scandalous fantasy set in the near-but-distant future; it’s a warning, of what might be lurking just around the corner. The Handmaid’s Tale is an incredibly frightening book to read today, because of the things that are being allowed to happen in our society. It shows what happens when we let sexism flourish, when ecological and political crises make us paranoid enough about national security that we let the people in power take away our rights. It is a fucking nightmare.

Terrible people that you tend to find in any far left movement: (just brainstorming here, feel free to add)

  1. The person who is a little too into guns and a little too convinced that basic gun safety is for the squares.
  2. The person who is really into fucking a lot of people/or the person who will not stop presenting their 5 Year Plan for Fucking a Lot of People/Manifesto on the Revolutionary Potential of Fucking a Lot of People.  These do not have to be the same person, but it’s worse when they are.
  3. Now, here I’m going to have to name names because this is both a very specific character and a very difficult to describe phenomenon: The person who claims more oppression street cred than the rest of the people around them, therefore is enabled in their sociopathy.  If you’re trying to figure out what I’m talking about here’s some names to name:  Charles Manson, Cinque, and infamous tumblr users like genderbitch.
  4. The person who was an actual nazi like a year ago and/or the person who is going to become an actual nazi by some time next year.  This person often doubles as #4 because they are enabled in their proto-nazism by telling some very #authentic story about white working class suffering.
  5. The person who is so paranoid about Big Government that they can only be communicated with in person while standing in an empty field. 
  6. The couple who is definitely on the path to being hardcore Quiverfull complementarians but are right now are just like, super into Ina May Gaskin or prone to talking about how living their anarcho-primitivist lifestyle is teaching them that gender roles exist for a reason. (Idk, Sagebrush, but maybe the reason your husband has a job and you don’t is less about how our hunter-gatherer ancestors lived than about the fact that you have 3 kids under 5 and are convinced that you have to breastfeed them all for a decade and also your authentic hunter gatherer birth control is wild carrot and visualization.)
  7. Someone who thinks that Big Government is lying to you about tobacco.  Sometimes this person also thinks that Big Government is way overselling the dangers of lead poisoning.
  8. Someone who really wants to talk about how they are #manifestingwealth, learning to value their own work, the importance of compensation for emotional labor, etc etc.  They just want you to join their multi-level marketing scheme.
  9. Someone who is convinced they have a disease that is not actually real. If you are super, super lucky the person has Morgellans, but they are more likely to have something like gluten sensitivity, chronic lyme or vague, ill-defined ~parasites~ with symptoms that sound a lot like just having a goddamn eating disorder.
  10. Someone who totally does have a super gross hippe lifestyle disease like Giardia or foot rot. 

anonymous asked:

If you're still taking prompts, Jughead and Betty are both famous in their own rights and no one knows they're married until asked in an interview by someone who's clearly done research and knows everything about them

That’s interesting!

They weren’t hiding anything, no really, they just weren’t saying anything…per say. Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper were both very proud of their marriage, it was healthy and strong and they loved each other more than anything in the world, but both being prominent figures, constantly in the spotlight, it was difficult to have any privacy and that was something that was important to the pair.

Jughead jones was the most sought after novelist in all of LA, his stories and novels were being published and turned into movies faster than he could get them printed, it was bizarre to see how everyone reacted to his writing, paparazzi followed him places, asking when his newest work would come out. His first love story had been made into the biggest blockbuster of the year and the actresses were already winning Oscars.

Betty Cooper was Hollywoods It girl, she was Sunshine wrapped up in a pretty blonde bottle, the gorgeous girl next door never had a mean word to say to anyone and her sweet and caring personality drew everyone towards her like flies. She was a singer/song writer and had performed in almost every arena you could think of. She had won Grammys, and was currently up for an Emmy for her recurring role in the CW drama “teen wolf” she was trying her hand at acting and it seemed to working out pretty damn well.

Jughead had met the beautiful blonde on the set for a movie he wrote a few years ago “Jason Blossom In Cold Blood” Betty Cooper was essentially the main artist on every track for the movie, her hauntingly beautiful voice and gorgeous lyrics fit the score perfectly and Jughead had been pulled in the moment he met her. Things moved very quickly after introductions, Betty was seemingly as interested as Jughead, they fell in love and dated for about six months before he brought her on a trip to his home town and proposed, they were married on a small rooftop ceremony a few months later. Veronica Lodge, international supermodel serving as her maid of honor and Archie Andrews, rock star as his best man. Betty’s mom had cried and Jugheads father had thanked her for saving his son. It was beautiful and perfect.

Three years later they were still just as in love as they had been that first day and as he watched her walk the red carpet of his newest Movie he felt his heart swell with pride. She was wearing the gorgeous, flowing, light yellow dress he had taken off just hours before hand and ravaged her. She was the most beautiful woman in the room and she was all his.

“Mr.Jones! Over here! Please, for an interview!” He turned to his right and smiled at the young lady holding out the microphone, running a hand through his hair he moved to join her.
“Hello.” He smiled

“Hi!” She beamed “can you hang tight for one second? Ms.Cooper! Ms.Cooper!” The tiny dark haired reporter shouted.

Betty looked over and raised a brow before heading over to stand beside Jughead
“Well hello.” She said with effortless grace, smiling brightly at Jughead

“Ms. Cooper, how do you feel about being back to work on the soundtrack for another one of Mr.Jones movies?”

Betty smiled
“Mr.Jones is a fantastic author, I couldn’t ask for better inspiration for my music, that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? Finding what fits and going for it. Speaking of fits, those shoes are absolutely gorgeous.” The interviewer blushed and thanked her profusely.

Jughead once again felt the swell of pride for his wife, she really was a natural.

“Same question to you Mr.Jones?”

Jughead smiled and stared lovingly at Betty
“Her music is beautiful and she always finds a way to fit exactly the theme I’m going for in my novels. It’s umm.. it’s really great to have her back” he shrugged as Betty placed a warm hand to his arm and smiled softly

“You two seem awfully close, is there possibly more to your relationship than meets the eye?” The ponytail wearing woman asked with narrowed eyes.

Jugheads eyes widened and he felt Betty squeeze his arm a bit

“Well that depends on what relationship your asking about?” She grinned.

“Ever since your first movie together you have been seen multiple times, at parties, at dinner, your families follow each other on instagram and there have been multiple witnesses who have seen the two of you shopping at Farmers markets together. Not to mention the addition of the engagement band Ms. Cooper began wearing right after the first movie wrapped. Care to explain?” She shoved the microphone towards Jughead who stared blankly at it

“Those are some very interesting sleuthing abilities…” he mumbled.

Betty giggled from beside him
“Very good indeed, in fact my husband and I have been known to be pretty good sleuths ourselves, in his newest novel the character who solved the murder is based off of me, keep an eye out for that.” Betty winked and grabbed Jugheads hand, leading him away from the interviewer and taking her place on the carpet for pictures, pulling Jughead right beside her.
Jughead was grinning like a crazy person and couldn’t keep his eyes off of his wife

“Looks like the cats out of the bag now.” He turned for the camera.

Betty looked up at him and smiled adoringly
“It was bound to come out sometime. Plus with me starring in your newest movie, were going to be together all the time, it’s easier they know now.” She shrugged and flipped her long blonde hair so the photographers could catch it in motion.

“I love you Betty Jones” he whispered against her ear.

She turned in his arms and stared up at him, ignoring the flashing lights and the screaming paparazzi

“And I love you Jughead Jones.”

Can we please fucking admit that personality tests when applying for a retail/service job; whether by design intention or mere prioritization of neurotypicality; are de-facto discriminatory against mentally ill/non-neurotypical people and should be outlawed?

And anyone who defends them with “But muh lazy workers/efficiency” deserves a fist in the fucking face from all the non-NT/mentally ill folks who’ve been kept from even a low-level job by that shit.

Nobody deserves to fucking starve because they can’t meet your neurotypical standards, all you little libertarian twerps who care more about markets than human life can FUCK OFF!

Summary: Your family has just moved in an attempt to start a new life. At first, the small town of Villeneuve seems perfect, until you are endlessly followed around by the town hero, a man so jaded you’re intrigued as to what in his past may have made him that way. The answers, however, are much darker than you would’ve liked.

“____, my love, we’re almost to town, wake up dear…”

You slowly opened your eyes, still drowsy and unaware of your circumstances. One small yawn and a quick stretch later, you glanced around, watching the grass and patches of wild flowers roll by.

You were traveling with your family - no, you were moving. It had been a long journey from your old city, but you quite enjoyed the peace and quiet of the countryside.

It was nothing but the beginning of Lara’s “schyzophrenia”. On one hand, her mystery was cultivated in the games, where the beauty barely speaks; on other hand, an impression was made of throwing her private life as food to the press, with suggestive photos and poses. The reason for all this is simple: while Core Design was devoted only to create the games, Eidos was not asking their opinion at all concerning Lara Croft. They were the marketers. Therefore two visions of Lara existed, one for each entity behind the beauty. It’s useless to try to establish a connection between the marketing and the game itself. After the first episode, this two aspects remain totally separated.

You had come home to find your mother in your bedroom. There was an open suitcase on the bed and she was sitting in the chair by the fireplace. You weren’t naïve enough to be confused when you saw her there. Two weeks ago you’d come clean to your family, telling them that you were pregnant.

Voltron Crossover pt 3
  • Megatron: ...
  • Megatron: [blinks]
  • Megatron: ... Those ships are still around, huh? Impressive, for organic technology...
  • Haggar: Voltron is the only thing that stands in the way of complete Galra conquest.
  • Megatron: [snorts] Give it another 25 thousand years and that thing will be rust. What's the hurry?
  • Zarkon: You do not comprehend it's power.
  • Megatron: Oh, tiny organic. I've *seen* power... I've felt it, tasted it... those ships are better than most, but they barely scrape the surface of what this universe has to offer. You could live one hundred of your lifetimes, and still you would not grasp the power I have wielded.
  • Zarkon: ... Who made you?
  • Megatron: Does it matter? We are all cosmic dust... not every mechanical being has an engineer, foolish fleshling. Ah, but of course even that may be too much to wrap your tiny minds around...
  • Haggar: Ngh! How DARE you speak to Emperor Zarkon that way!!
  • Galra Soldier: My lord, a vessel approaches!
  • [A huge ship appears just outside the hole. Galra weapons are attacking it, to no avail]
  • Zarkon: ... What is that?
  • Megatron: Heh heh, that is a ship from MY fleet.
  • [Megatron stands at the large exit he made]
  • Megatron: Emperor Zarkon, was it? I've never heard of you, though that is unsurprising, considering I don't bother to learn the names of organic warlords. Your life spans are so short, why should I care who flaunts their army this century or the next? Organics are impatient, unable to see the bigger picture...
  • Zarkon: ...
  • Megatron: You are ambitious, I'll admit. But you too fail to see the bigger picture. You may have bases in multiple galaxies, but who runs those markets? Who ensures your patrol routes are swept clear of interference? Who kindles political dissonance? The answer may surprise you.
  • Zarkon: A bluff, coming from a machine found floating in space...
  • Megatron: You are but a small player in a larger game, seeing only the board in front of you rather than the space around it. And that is why you are wrong-- Voltron is not what will keep you from ruling the universe... I am.
  • Zarkon: Enough!
  • [Zarkon motions to Haggar, but her magic is ineffective]
  • Megatron: So conquer your galaxies, fight your little battles. My resources will outlast you; my function will outlive you. My victories are exceedingly more thorough. In the end, I will be the one standing upon a strong, true empire... and you will be long dead, and forgotten.
  • [Megatron leaps off into space and rendezvous with the Nemesis just outside the ship]

Word Count: 11, 343

Genre: Smut

Warnings: Mature subject matter and language

A/N: Inspired by Tattoo – ELO ft. Jay Park

The constant buzzing sound of the tattoo gun brings you back to that night with Mino when you got your first tattoo. Your drunken state that night didn’t allow you to have a say in the placement of the tattoo, the font, the size – heck, you didn’t even get to decide if you even wanted a tattoo. You guess part of the reason why you hadn’t been that fazed about the unplanned tattoo was because you were too drunk to even remember the pain. However, you’re as sober as you can be right now and as you hear the sound of the machine, you instantly regret your decision.

As if he could read your mind, or rather your tensed body, the artist turns off the tattoo gun before setting it back on the side table. Noticing the sudden quietness surrounding you, you look behind your shoulder, only to meet a pair of dark brown orbs.

“Why aren’t you starting?”

“Let’s do this another time. When you’re ready.” Your brows furrowed as you tried to decipher the reasoning on his face. “Look, I know you want to have this done but I think you should take some time –”

“No! I-I want this now.” You fail at your attempt to conceal your nervousness when you started to stutter. You knew that you couldn’t convince him with your words, because heck, you couldn’t even convince yourself. Who in the world would willing agree to being pricked by a needle a million times?! It wasn’t that you had a fear of needles, rather, it was due to your extremely low pain tolerance. Every time your best friend – ex-best friend – would playfully punch you, your body would literally collapse and you would have a bruise within a matter of minutes.
