y'all should have seen this coming

Okay guys. I’m gonna be real with you for a sec. The Captain Underpants movie is coming out in June, and y'all in the LGBT community and those who support it should totally make sure you watch it!! The movie is based off a 12-book series. In the last book, one of the protagonists, Harold, is revealed to be gay. This is super huge for an elementary series of kids books!!

The movie coming out is based on the first four books (that I’m aware of), and if it does well, Dreamworks will probably finish making the series. It would be so important to have that sort of representation for young LGBT kids seeing this movie!! I’ve rarely seen movies where kids are revealed to be LGBT, and that would be such a huge stepping stone!

Anyway!! This movie looks really fun and exciting on top of having the two protagonists that are minorities (Harold’s best friend George is black, and both boys have AHHD). So support it if you can!!

Okay but seriously

It’s been wonderful seeing all the Dad!Gabriel and Dad!Jack ideas going around for when Jesse first joins Blackwatch, but y’all are missing the PRIMEST OF PRIME opportunities here:

Jesse with not one BUT TWO Commander Dads with bad puns, dad jokes, and a whole slew of embarrassing ideas.

Like

Gabriel basically rescues and adopts Jesse from Deadlock

Jack: …well. This is it, Jack.
Jack: you’re a dad now.
Jack: time to be a loving and supporting partner to your husband in this endeavor, and a responsible and warmhearted role model to this poor kid who has had so much go wrong in his young life.
Jack: …
Jack: guess I gotta learn how to golf now.  
Jack: …
Jack: and also buy all my clothes from Costco.                      



Five minutes later

Gabriel: …what the actual fuck are you wearing
*Jack in Hawaiian button up, cargo shorts, socks and sandals*
Jack: …
Jack: we’re dads now, Gabe.
Gabriel: …
Gabriel: shit you’re right

Five minutes later

Jesse comes outside into the break area of the Watchpoint.

Jesse: hey, y'all seen my hat anywhere? I think Fareeha hid it - CHICKEN ON A DONKEY WHAT THE FUCK
*Jack and Gabe practicing really bad golf swings in Hawaiian shirts, cargo shorts, and socks and sandals*
Jack: hello, kiddo
Gabe: sup, chico
Jesse: …
Jesse: Hey uh
Jesse: can I choose to go to jail instead      


                  
Twenty minutes later

Ana: I should have expected this from you, Jack
Ana: but you too, Gabriel?? I expected better from you
Torbjörn: …you expected better from Gabriel “I wear my beanie in New Mexico” Reyes?
Gabriel: I detect some sarcasm there
Jack: Ana…Ana, don’t you see?
Ana: ??
Jack: we have a TEENAGER living in the base with us
Ana: …
Torbjörn: …
Reinhardt: …team, we know what we must do

Five minutes later

Jesse: still can’t find my hat - CHEESE WHIZ ON A CRACKER WHAT
*Entire Strike team in Hawaiian shirts, cargo shorts, socks and sandals*
Jesse: …
Jack: …we’re all dads now



Twenty years later

In the theater on the Hollywood map

Jesse: …
Shiver Reaper: …
Golden 76: …
Shiver Reaper: hey, chico
Golden 76: how ya doin’, kid?
Jesse: …
Hanzo: …do you know these people, Jesse?
Jesse: …nah
Lúcio: introduce us to your friends!
Jesse: …extra hell nah
Golden 76: hey Jesse
Golden 76: watch this!
*Golden 76 starts doing push ups*
Hanzo: …
Lúcio: …
Sombra: …
Jesse: how.  why.
Shiver Reaper: …like you’re one to talk
Shiver Reaper: you look ridiculous
Jesse: …
*flashbacks to late adolescent and young adult years of his foster fathers in bad polo shirts and ugly plaid pants and Daredevil 76 and Pumpkin Reaper*
Jesse: …I CANNOT BELIEVE
*Jesse McCree has left the game.*
Shiver Reaper: …
Golden 76: …
*Reaper and Soldier: 76 high-five*
Golden 76: We still got it.



(I cannot believe I have to add this but do not tag this as mc*/reyes//76 or any variation thereof)

For real though y'all need to stop ignoring nabalungi and mafala and all the Ugandan characters while idolizing the elders (even when they only have like two lines) like I understand that y'all on Tumblr have an unhealthy fascination with gay men but come on! The Ugandans are just as important as the elders and should be seen as such. Sexuality is not the same thing as a character trait, if the only thing you know about a character is that they’re gay, either they have little personality or you aren’t paying attention.

Me reading the Vesuvia Times™ and getting up to date to what y'all are freaking out about:

/flips page/ Valerius crawls up popularity polls and also unexpectedly hot. Well. Guess we should have seen that one coming. Lucio is a hoe but he’s all about the aesthetics.

Now onto economics. Muriel still broke. Dammit. There go my investments.

I don’t wanna sound overly dramatic or anything lol but 11 hours after the news broke I have come to terms that my favourite member is leaving my favourite group… I guess.

I wish that I’d have gone for your concert in March without care - who’d knew it was gonna be your first and last one with AOA? But I should be glad that I’ve seen y'all up-close enough to have been able to take these photos… I guess.

초아야… the past two years have been hard for you - it’s really the people who seem the happiest who are actually the ones suffering the most… I guess.

나는 항상 너를지지 할거야.

고마워요 사랑해요 박초아.

How about a Magicstone week?

Hey y'all! If you seen me, you can see I’m crawling out of my hermit rock and write some Ducktales headcanons.

I was thinking and talking with @cognicharias that we should have a Magicstone week.

It’ll be one week, each day will have a prompt. And anyone can submit anything from fanart to fanfics to playlists to Headcanon lists to anyway you wanna express this ship. (Maybe have some coslayers?)

I would also like to encourage everyone to join in. You don’t have to do anything big or a masterpiece. You can contribute anything y'all would like and can do. I would love to see what everyone would come up with this. Plus it’s good to express our love for this rare pair hell we’re in lol.

So what do y'all think? What prompts should be done? Are there any other fanworks I’m missing on my list? Are there some rules I should add or anything from other ships week I should learn from? Have you held one of these shipping weeks before and would like to offer some advice on these events? I can create a separate Magicstone week account.

Also I was thinking that we could do Magicstone week in October (because it’s Magica’s month), but if that’s too short of notice, we can push it back to a later date in November.

Tell me your thoughts on this. I would love to hear them.

CURED (Spoilers)

Okay, it took me almost an hour an a half to watch the episode on my dodgy VPN connection but I did it!!

That was a…weird first episode. You could even say it was Too Weird For Words (eheheh). This was the episode I was least looking forward to - honestly any comedy involving Hitler makes me suspicious - but it wasn’t half bad. A lot of the humour was basically pointing at these “cured” villains and being like ‘Ha ha, look at them not be evil!’ which did get tiring eventually. To be fair, there were some genuinely funny moments. The opening with the gang playing poker was great though I’m sure some of you had already seen the clip that was posted a lil while ago. The scene after that where they were trying to start starbug up was so funny (and just like getting a shite car going).

This was a great episode for Cat. He had some killer lines that had me giggling throughout (”Soft rock is NEVER okay”) and at the end he was really able to shine. The way his voice broke in the poker game was so funny.

One slight complaint: since when can Lister play guitar WELL?? He wasn’t Hendrix or anything but he could actually hold a tune in the guitar scene. That’s not right!

The scene with the four guys in peril was good - I squeaked when I saw Kryten on a stick and Rimmer making his situation so much worse gave me a good laugh. Kudos to Lister for actually having a knife in his boot. I suppose they’ve been captured too many times to go unprepared.

And the end! I’m so glad they decided to pick on Cat rather than Rimmer and that plot twist! I probably should have seen it coming but it was definitely satisfying!

All in all, not a brilliant episode by any means but great fun and a decent start to the series!

So its fourth of july

And literally all I’m seeing is pics of people burning flags and stepping on them and im just like ?!?!?!¡?!?
I mean i know the united states is trash. Look at their president. The police is basically against an entire race. It’s not a great country, but come. On. People.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show patriotism or celebrate the country’s creation.
I myself come from a country thats way worse. Fucking. Trash. We are the 7th Most Corrupt Country. The president tried to just change the whole damn constitution to get reelection (why we dont have it is a looong story). 40% or so live in poverty. You come here, you see trash everywhere. Our education system is fucking trash and brazil and argentina are legitimately trying to steal our culture. @electricons NOT FOR U I LOVE YOU OK. So, are we a good country?
No.
Do I still show some patriotism?
Yes (you should have seen my in april trying 2 defend da constitution). So dont be sluts and celebrate the fact that you won a war ok

zootzoot  asked:

Firstly, Alex was invited, she didn't force her way in. Secondly, I don't think anyone is seriously asking for the same representation levels in Kpop as they ask for in Western music. Thirdly, every single day black people fight for representation and fight against being erased and having our cultures destroyed, it's very strange that you'd say we're only demanding this of Kpop. Idk where you're looking where that's all you see. This is not just about appropriation it's about...(1)

black people being erased from their own culture GLOBALLY.
Rap (which Alexandra is doing) is black culture, it is a form of expression and resistance specifically for and by Black people. If we’re gonna suddenly start getting strict about culture then anyone else non-Black using it is overstepping cultural boundaries (so that’s all of Korean hip-hop, every group with a ‘rapper’, practically all of YG) when they make what they think is R&B, copy our fashion, our dances, use AAVE etc. R&B is OUR culture, soul is OUR culture, jazz is OUR culture, the blues are OUR culture etc. Telling us we can’t participate and profit from our own culture but other poc can is a big no-no. It’s not like Korean people even need to necessarily use Black culture yet they still do, why? Coz they like Black culture (or what they think all Black culture is) and so they can profit AND reach international audiences.

Even in the West we are daily having to fight against erasure, I find it highly strange to suggest that us partaking in our own culture is intrusive or that we have it easy in the West. We certainly do have some privileges (we speak English and are occasionally the go-to token minority I guess…) but just look at the way even the POTUS gets talked about. Not even he can escape anti-blackness so it’s kind of funny for some people to act like America or even Europe is some haven for Black people. Also like, I feel it’s far too simplistic to say we have Western privileges without really explaining what you mean by ‘privilege’ when it comes to Black people in the West.
I (and I wager many others) are not asking of Black people to be as widely represented in Kpop as we demand for Western music, we are just saying that we should be included. First and foremost Black Koreans of course but in this situation it doesn’t have to be either or. She’s only one black girl AND it’s lowkey messy to use other Black girls (not y'all, other comments I’ve seen) against her when there’s so few of them in that industry as some form of point scoring. Also, I really, really hate the fact that people are associating her with white Western colonialism. Even if she tells us she defines as biracial she is still not white and if people are going to critique her they should be conscious of that.

I feel it’s also unfair to say that we are only demanding this of Kpop when anyone that is paying attention would see Black people all over the world fighting for better/accurate representation in their media. Even major black celebs like Nicki Minaj or Will Smith have to do this.
Why is it that Kpop is allowed to use our culture, style, language, labor and music as a way to make millions and crossover to wider audiences  but one black girl joins and suddenly all hell breaks loose?

Downplaying her race, downplaying the extent Kpop historically and currently OWES black people is nagl.

If some fans really want to keep Kpop a certain way then honestly, people need to take this up with the Asian idols and Korean record labels that are so desperately trying to expand worldwide and that constantly mine black culture for profit and 'cool’. They are the ones that want Kpop to involve and engage with the rest of the world. They are the ones trying to cross over. Black people ain’t trying to force themselves into Korea like that.
At the end of the day, she was invited, all we can do is, wait and see and hope it means positive things for people like Lee Michelle and other Black Koreans trying to make it.

So I’ve seen many people saying “doctor mechanic is gross” just because Abby slapped Raven once and the age-gap thing.
I’m going to express my opinion about it.

First, I totally agree that Abby had come way too far that time, but c'mon, she was worried about her daughter, she didn’t even know what she was doing at this time, Raven didn’t hold it against her so why should we? Get over it. Plus it isn’t the first time a character from the show acts like a jerk towards another character (For instance, Kane having Abby whipped but y'all still think Kabby is otp af right?).

You always claim to love Raven and want to protect her at all costs but right now Abby is literally the only person who’s trying to help her, and yes, she isn’t always great with words but at least she tries and cares, anyone can see it.

I’m wondering if we’re watching the same show when I see you complaining about how “toxic” this pairing is.

Their relationship is so important to the show, it has been there from the really beginning, they were friends first and like it or not they have developed a strong bond since then. In my opinion, it is one of the most complex relationship I’ve seen on the show.

This is why it deeply hurts me when people don’t even acknowledge these facts. You don’t have to ship them, that’s your choice, but please don’t say that this ship is ugly.

Especially if it’s only to praise another ship (usually Octaven, like Octavia and Raven never shared screentime before and aren’t even good friends but y'all want this to happen just because they’re hot and cool… anyway)

Oh, and about the age-gap problem : Raven isn’t a fucking kid anymore, neither is any of them. The actress is 25 and the character +20. No one complained about Carol or Freeheld, when these movies deal with an age-gap relationship between 2 women. It also shows that two people with a big age gap can be lovers, but when the ship isn’t canon, people tend to categorize their relation as a parent/child thing, which is stupid and intolerant. Love has no color. Love has no gender. Love has no label. Love has no boundary. Love has no age. When you finally understand that, you’d take a big step forward.

Future PSA : Do not come for Drake.

Tyga tried it. Meek tried it. At least Chris Brown just openly despises him but doesn’t over step it. All the rappers have writers who help clean stuff up lyrically. All of them. This has been common knowledge since the beginning of rap and hip hop. Have y'all never seen the booklets in the albums you bought? They all have multiple writer credits on songs. It was made a much bigger deal than it ever should gave been. My thing is this, even if Meek was right no one would care. Everyone is still gonna roll with Drake at the end of the day because his shit is more than just the words. Same thing with Beyonce. That’s why Meek saying what he said was never gonna workout for him. It just makes Meek look bad cause he isn’t anywhere near the levels of the Drake’s, Kendrick’s, and J Cole’s of the world. I’m just laughing at all the Drake’s about to drop 3 AM in Philly posts.
