with people watching anyways

So apparently my local news channel told people that they could pick up the eclipse glasses at local libraries but….. we … . . didn’t have .. . any……. like we never even told people or the news that we would have any so like we open this morning and after two hours we already had over 40 calls from people asking if we had the damn glasses. When I left work at 1pm, we had over 75 calls asking if we had the glasses plus groups of people coming in asking if we had them and so uuuuh long story short it ended up being cloudy so lmao

after a stupid long time, i’m finally able to post my rmit grad film, for fear of little men! this thing represents 8 months of delirious work surviving off pizza shapes and academic fear alongside my friends, please enjoy

i’m sorry… but the argument that keith was meant to be the true black paladin doesn’t make any sense. for starters, and i think a lot of people have pointed this out, but shiro has already like bonded with his lion. he literally unlocked teleportation and stuff. and though we can’t be entirely sure that keith didn’t because the voltron team has a habit of leaving out important scenes, i don’t think black would give up shiro that easily. she literally just let go of zarkon as her true paladin, it would make no sense to have shiro go through all of that trouble for him to just … not be the black paladin anymore. there’s definitely something not right about shiro and black sensed it. 

When you go to Barnes and Nobles and you find yourself so immersed that it only feels like 10 minutes but then you walk out and suddenly you’ve got 50 missed calls from your mom, the teenagers that were outside are 80, the last of your friends are throwing you a funeral, and your baby sister grew up and is accepting a Nobel prize on tv as your brother you didn’t even know was born became the president

“What really was happening as I was watching, it was surreal anyway, I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt. I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head, and then I just heard Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing. Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won. I know the director [Barry Jenkins] … I’ve worked with them before,” he explains. “It’s such a groundbreaking film, made for a million dollars, and incredible achievement and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized.” — Ryan Gosling explains why he laughed during the Oscars mix-up

Alfred: Mr. Potter, we missed you at dinner last night!
Harry: Yeah, well. Sorry about that. My wife had an important match. It lasted 7 hours so I didn’t have time to attend the dinner.
Alfred: WHAT. How come? I never miss a Holyhead Harpies game! I didn’t know they played last night!
Harry: It was… er… a private match. Only a few people watched it.
Alfred: Oh… well… Anyway, Cameron is going to make another dinner next week…

Ginny: You know we’ll have to go to one of your co-workers’ dinners at some point of your career, right?
Harry: What if I tell them you are pregnant and needs to rest? I have never used this excuse before.
Ginny: Yes, you have. But I was actually pregnant.
Harry: Damn it.

Okay I’d like to drag myself for a second. One time I watched 4 (?) seasons of Grey’s Anatomy just to get to CalliexArizona. I can’t even say how many seasons of Rizzoli and Isles I watched just to get excited about them staring at each other, with the idea of them being together just a joke to the actors (this is actual queerbaiting). Or Warehouse 13, which is a show that I genuinely love, but I started it and watched at least a season before HG was even in it, only for the showrunner to go haha lol no we would never (again THIS is queerbaiting) and I still turned up every week. I have so many more shows I started just because I heard so much as a whisper that there would be wlw content, I could go on forever. Like the time I watched how many episodes of a German soap before the two ladies got together??? Anyway.

My point is, I know there are plenty of people out there who don’t just jump onboard a show if they hear there’s gonna be wlw content. I get that. But I also know that I’m not alone in being Like This. And to you all…..you’re telling me you saw gifs of Kadena and you didn’t jump on this shit? smh for real what’s up guys

Also @ my fellow white queers… look. You’re maybe just gonna want to ask yourself twice why you didn’t even want to give this a chance. 

When you fight for representation, you need to be fighting for representation for everyone.

except for the humor in book of mormon is completely different. they’re not making fun of AIDS or people dying of AIDS, they’re poking fun at the fact that privileged people who don’t live in 3rd world countries think that 3rd world problems like AIDS can be solved with religion and asking God to make it better and saying “oh yeah, you’ll be fine if you just read the bible”. whereas people in the falsettos fandom are making jokes about whizzer dying of AIDS and nothing else.


there’s a huge difference. 

making fun of people who don’t see the seriousness of AIDS - book of mormon

making jokes out of someone who died from AIDS and not taking it seriously - (bad) falsettos fans


@hopeyou-findthatswimmingpool i hope this helps!!! it’s a weird type of humor so unless it’s in the proper context it’s easy to misinterpret but! i hope this helps!!

Otayuri High School AU (because of reasons)

-Yuri is the freshman sports prodigy on the track team (because most schools probably dont have a figure skating team)

-Otabek is the senior captain of the debate club (trust me ok? just hear me out)

-Yuri gets dragged to a debate by Viktor who wants to watch his “sweet adorable Yuuri win!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

-People recognize Yuri and find it weird that the angry track team freshman is watching a debate with school heartthrob Viktor Nikiforov

- Otabek sits at the end of the table in the captain’s position with Yuuri on his left and isnt Otabek that guy that Mila keeps talking about ???

-Yuri tries to focus of the debate (not like he wanted to watch people argue anyway) but he cant ???????? because Otabek keeps doing this thing with his jaw and its really attractive distracting OF NO SIGNIFICANCE WHAT SO EVER

-Yuri thinks it’s weird that Otabek hasnt said a word throughout the whole match because he’s the captain so ???? shouldnt he be ????? you know ???? doing something ?????

-Viktor suddenly gets really excited when the opposing school calls out Otabek on his silence

-Yuri is really confused because the whole room is silent and even Viktor finally shut up so what is he missing ????????

-the opposing school looks really smug (Yuri is not happy bc he has that school spirit) when Otabek clears his throat and stands

-he has no notes ??????

-everyone else had notes ??????? so where are Otabek’s notes ??????

-there’s a beat of silence and Otabek barely says twenty words but even Yuri knows that the debate is over and holy shit his voice-IMEANWHAT

-he has to know more about this Word Magician because who cares about running when this boy just shut up a table of annoying teenagers ???

-Viktor and Mila tease him senselessly about his “little crush” WHICH IT IS NOT

-he just happens to find him… admirable

-turns out, when they do meet, that otabek had been the one admiring him ever since he joined the track team

-bc otabek just loves the grace and speed that Yuri seems to so naturally possess ????

-but Yuri, who has never been good with words or conversation, cant get over how easily Otabek is able to get out of conversations or keep them going without really saying/doing much ????

-they become besties quickly after they meet and are pretty much inseparable

-you really cant have one without the other involved in some way (they’re texting each other or talking on the phone or they’re both present)

-otabek picks Yuri up from track and cheers him on at races

-yuri goes to all of otabek’s debates and is honestly the most excited person there

-they call each other Beka and Yura obviously mila teases Yuri about it to no end

-eventually, they both realize they have it bad for each other and no amount of teasing is going to make it any easier im looking at you mila

-oops

our country may not have gay pride but i’ll be damned if i don’t celebrate pride month in any way that i can
