OK imagine this: you and pyrrha in bed, it's early in the morning and both are you are in nothing but some large comfy shirts and panties. She is holding you in her arms, and when she wakes up she smiles and buries her head in your neck and kisses it
If you’ve been active on tumblr lately, you may notice that they’ve started running a new type of ad in the right-hand sidebar unit. Specifically, there’s been an uptick in ads that auto-play loud audio, some of which are even un-mutable.
We’ve addressed this in Anti-Capitalism version 1.3.0, which adds a new option:
(small mea culpa: the naming here is slightly confusing. this will *always* remove the sidebar ad, even if it doesn’t happen to be one that plays audio, because we don’t have the ability to distinguish between them. the other difference is that it does it in a way that also takes care of the audio-visual component instead of just hiding the ad, like some adblockers have been doing)
(EDIT: yes, you’ll have to refresh the page after installing the extension/enabling the option. It sounds like this might also conflict with other ad-blockers, so let us know if you have any issues and/or try disabling other adblockers first and see if that fixes the problem)
EDIT 2: as of 7/26, conflicts with other extensions or ad blockers should no longer be an issue.
let us know what you think! I’m probably going to be going to bed soon, but you can always reach us in our ask box, our support blog, or our live support chat. In general the dev team has less time to reply to asks nowadays because of both real-life obligations and the sheer quantity of asks we receive, so you’ll generally have a better time with the support chat, if you can catch one of us online. If nobody is online, you always can leave a message for us to read later. thanks for understanding!
(one last plug—If you’re interested in helping us run New XKit, for example by answering asks or helping other users with questions + problems, come stop by and introduce yourself! we don’t bite, we promise!)

Jim Wong [writer/director of Founder’s Mutation]:Here’s what happened. We do a take, and [Scully’s] supposed to drive up and park in front of the hospital. She does. I decided to go for another take. I don’t know why we didn’t have the transportation guy back the car up, but Gillian decides to back the car up [to first position]. As she’s backing up, I really see that she’s heading in the wrong direction. But she stops! And it’s like, “Oh, thank God, she sees that she’s about to hit the pole.” And then, just a beat later, she steps on the accelerator and goes directly into the pole. I don’t quite understand what happened, the thought process between stopping and going again, but obviously it was not to turn the wheel…
Gillian Anderson: It was a large, tall pole that I should have seen, but I was concentrating on the Teamster in my left wing mirror and the location PA in my right mirror and trying not to hit them. I didn’t look into the rearview mirror and I slammed pretty hard into it. And actually experienced some whiplash for the next couple days.
The next day….
Jim Wong: I’m talking to the director of photography, and I look up and David [is walking onto set]… He has a neck brace around his neck. I think, “Oh my God, we’ve lost a day! I can’t shoot with him literally like this [see Wong’s photo]”. He looks at me and sees I’m about to freak and he goes, “It’s a joke, it’s a joke. Don’t say anything! I’m going over to show Gillian. I only saw from the corner of my eye, but I heard Gillian scream.
I later read an article where David shares this prank and says he wishes someone had filmed her reaction. Man, I wish he had found me.
Little bit about the driving in My Struggle II:
Take after take, Gillian did all her own driving in the race to get to Mulder. I remember Chris asking if she was sure, since Melissa was standing by to double her if need be.
Gillian was sure: “I have to make up for backing up into the fucking pole!!!”
