I saw Tintin yesterday… it was an ok movie…. I didn’t like so much all the chasing, all the jokes about people crashing into objects.. meh…
But the slash :D :D guise, the slash!! I’m amazed how two cartoon characters can have so much chemistry between them!!! omg!!!! of course I shouldn’t be amazed, Moffat and Wright are to wide known slasher trolls: they know about slash, they know how to troll. Joe Cornish is also an excellent writer! he wrote and directed that amazing movie Attack the Block!
So, thanks to the movie, now I’m a Tintin/Haddock shipper!! XD XD here my tag for tintin! OMG so wonderful slash! XD XD
Hoy nos invitaron a la expo unitec y ahi anduve cadaverico. gracias a los ke fueron a vernos nomas hacer pinchi “platica informativa” sobre las redes sociales y la escuelistica. pero yo staba cansadote y jodidon.
estaba en 1 mood asi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvknOXGPzCQ
fastidiado y harton, pero trate de ke no se notara tanto jajaja.
ultimamente el ir a eventos es extraño porke sta chido ir como civil, pero cuando te abordan pa pedirte cosas (a pesar de ke se aprecia ke valoren lo ke uno hace), yo me tiendo a fastidiar.
es decir, no buscan una convivencia normal ekis, sino una foto y 1 firma… ke siendo realistas, ps 1 no es nadie. igual no es nadie pa negarla, pero no es como ke mi objetivo en la vida ser el centro de atencion. lo pongo aki porke he oido comentarios sobre otras personas ke dicen “eske tal vloguer es bien mamon” y shalala chingaderas similares… pero yo entiendo el fastidio ke es cuando te abordan y simplemente estas en 1 pedo de dejenme en paz no soy nadie.
es chido ke te inviten y se aprecia, pero uno se vuelve un objeto de entretenimiento, mas ke una persona. un payaso ke tiene ke estar sonriendo o si no “se le subio” y ps la neta, y por la reputacion ke tengo, ps no tiendo a star sonriendo.
tmb es extraño como uno se “cotiza” para eventos. al ppio ps si te invitan gratis, ps vas fascinado sientes chido ke te inviten porke te aprecian, pero tu punto de vista se va deformando cuando vas mas a presentar un show ke a ser tu mismo. tons eso es trabajo mental extra, ponerse una mascara y salir de payaso. tons por eso ya se cobra, y conforme te va fastidiando entretener a la gente, vas cobrando mas… aunke se suponga uno viva de eso y no se le deba subir porke ps eso hace ke caigas.
tmb por eso es muy weno dejar de hacer vlogs, yo no kiero ser kien entretenga. kiero ke mis monos entretengan, ellos seran el payaso, no yo. o seran la mascara intermediaria de mis pendejadas.
igual y es 1 etapa mamona mia y estos parrafos pseudo explicativos tienden mas a la fantochez del monero ante los ojos del lector, pero neta no es eso, espero haber dejado minimo claro un punto justificativo personal sobre mi mamonez. chido1lavemos
(Ya sé que esto fue hace cuatro pinches meses, pero…) Pues como yo lo veo es que… como ya eres toda una celebridad (vóytelas, estoy escribiéndole a una celebridad!!! XD XD), antons ya no eres tú… o sea tú sí eres tú-TÚ!! pero la gente ya no te ve como “tú”, sino como “El Negas”, que esa vendría siendo tu otra personalidad, que a la vez eres tú, pero a la vez no -o sea, si me explico-.
Ya ves a esta mona, Kristen Stewart, la
soplaBella de Twilight (y hasta aquí llegó Aurora, porque se atrevió a comparar al Negas con la Bela, y el mismo Negas y todos sus fans me quemaron en leña verde e hicieron explotar mi casa), DIGO, PÉRENMEE!! QUE YO TENGO UN PINCHE PUNTO!!!! …total que a esta mona le dicen: “Sonríe, babosa, siempre tienes una cara de angustia y estreñimiento” y ella les contesta “Ah, chingados y por qué cabrones, nada más porque me quieren de su pendeja, yo no más sonrío cuando se me pega mi rechingada gana, no tengo que hacerlo nomás porque a ustedes se les hincha, me la pelan, les voy a aventar al vampiro temido...” y así.
Entonces, yo supongo que ha de ser bastante difícil, porque, primero te pagan para que vayas a ciertos eventos, luego te anuncian como el entretemiento: “Y aquí les tenemos al Negas, véalo hacer pendejadas, dar vueltas y hacerse el loco, a ver Negas, hazlos reír cabrón!!! ¡¡¡¡MUÉVETEEEE!!!!” y pior después porque luego te dicen: “Pues oyes Negas, no estuviste tan mal, pero por qué no sonríes más, tienes una cara de angustia y estreñimiento, por qué no le aprendes al Guaper, ése sí que está guapo y es un ejemplo para la empresa…” y como que eso ya no está tan shido.
Por eso yo pienso, tu mamonez está bastante justificada, y no creo que tengas que pedir disculpas por eso… además, tal vez la mamonez sea lo que te defienda cuando no veas lo duro sino lo tupido, qué se yo…
(Esos ambientes de famosos están bien duros, se aprende mucho stalkeando a los famosos, y pues por eso yo veo, mírele, apúntele, cien billetes de quinientos pesos…)
Ora que por supuesto que desde luego que yo puedo estar equivocada e interpreté mal la cosa, y antons todo esto no son más que pendejadas que yo me invento… pero bueno, al menos puedo decir: “Yo le escribí al Negas en su tumblr”. XD
So I was cruising a friend’s blog because they reblogged me and I wanted to see what they put down in reply. Because that is fun to see what people have to say! >:l
I noticed that that post was tagged with my username, so I thought, “Oh, what the hell. I can look at a few posts. In-and-out operation.”
It just keeps going, with all the posts they reblogged. Either in the post or in tags, their words were so…uplifting.
And they are so CONSISTENT with all the tags in the posts they reblog from! @_@
So, props to battleangel25 for your hard tumblr work!
OMG, Assporn!! So wonderful words! and you noticed my hard tumblr work!! (Wiiii!! these onion gifs are so useful and beautiful!)
I want to share something with you. You already saw I’m a reblogging machine. I have an average of 120 reblogged post daily (OMFG, TMI of my loser life!!). The point is, sometimes I just don’t have time, no, I don’t give myself time to put a meaningful reply to everything I reblog, because posts like this one take me like 3 hours to make, HAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! (man! Could I be more pathetic??), thinking how can I say it in english, trying to sound assertive but not agressive, thoughtful but not patronizing, direct but not rude, kind but not dumb… well, it’s a hell of a work and I’m very laidback! and I think I always fail!
However, I’m glad I can talk to you, because you’re one of the first persons I followed in tumblr. I made this tumblr, because I got fascinated with Kurtofsky! How can I forget my first tumblr OTP? I know I’ve set it aside for other OTP’s, but Kurtofsky is still in my heart!
And, well… I know we don’t have so much fandoms in common… I mean, I see you love pokemon. I’m just meh with pokemon, yet I don’t feel bad to see it in my dash. Sometimes I reblog pokemon, because I think it’s a beautiful fanart and I’d like to have it in my blog, even when I’m not a pokemon fan. The same with Jojo’s bizarre adventures (you do reblog Jojo’s, right? XD or am I confusing with other user? Please forgive my alzheimer XP). So, maybe we don’t talk to much, but I like to see you in my dash, I like to see your posts, and I love to reblog my favorites!
And let me tell you something more, I think you’re a good artist! I can see your lines are more assertive, your inking is very good and your colouring is wonderful, the poses of your characters are lively! they don’t have the stiffness I dread so much; and even when I don’t recognize some characters -some of them maybe your OC’s, some of them from fandoms I don’t know about-, I do appreciate a good fanart. And you have really improved!
I kindly advice, wouldn’t you be interested in jumping in some bandwagons, to gain more notoriety to your drawings? I mean, if you want it, of course. Since there’s a new pokemon game, I say go for it! XD XD And if you’re more comfortable drawing humans instead of creatures, why don’t you do gijinkas pokemon? I’m pretty sure people love those ones!
(And if some imbecile anon tells you “Omg, you’re fishing for notes! oh! attention seeker i’m ashamed, oh” you can tell them to fuck themselves!! )
What do an artist need? Practice and feed back. How do the artist achieve this? by practicing, by posting their art -fanart and/or original works-, by asking for reviews or comments, by jumping in bandwagons to gain notoriety, by joining groups of their same fandom, by submitting links to their work to bigger groups of the fandom they’re drawing for… I say, everything is permitted (except thievery, of course! and murder, and other horrible things), so you do what you need to achieve something!, If that’s what you look for, of course.
I’m sorry for the long ass post , sometimes I just don’t know when to shut up , but I hope you’re ok, and I’m very glad to talk with you, dear Assporn! XD XD And thanks so much again for the beautiful comments!
This weekend I was told a story which, although I’m kind of ashamed to admit it, because holy shit is it ever obvious, is kind of blowing my mind.
A friend of a friend won a free consultation with Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear, and she was very excited, because she has a plus-size body, and wanted some tips on how to make the most of her wardrobe in a fashion culture which deliberately puts her body at a disadvantage.
Her first question for him was this: how do celebrities make a plain white t-shirt and a pair of weekend jeans look chic? She always assumed it was because so many celebrities have, by nature or by design, very slender frames, and because they can afford very expensive clothing. But when she watched What Not To Wear, she noticed that women of all sizes ended up in cute clothes that really fit their bodies and looked great. She had tried to apply some guidelines from the show into her own wardrobe, but with only mixed success. So - what gives?
His answer was that everything you will ever see on a celebrity’s body, including their outfits when they’re out and about and they just get caught by a paparazzo, has been tailored, and the same goes for everything on What Not To Wear. Jeans, blazers, dresses - everything right down to plain t-shirts and camisoles. He pointed out that historically, up until the last few generations, the vast majority of people either made their own clothing or had their clothing made by tailors and seamstresses. You had your clothing made to accommodate the measurements of your individual body, and then you moved the fuck on. Nothing on the show or in People magazine is off the rack and unaltered. He said that what they do is ignore the actual size numbers on the tags, find something that fits an individual’s widest place, and then have it completely altered to fit. That’s how celebrities have jeans that magically fit them all over, and the rest of us chumps can’t ever find a pair that doesn’t gape here or ride up or slouch down or have about four yards of extra fabric here and there.
I knew that having dresses and blazers altered was probably something they were doing, but to me, having alterations done generally means having my jeans hemmed and then simply living with the fact that I will always be adjusting my clothing while I’m wearing it because I have curves from here to ya-ya, some things don’t fit right, and the world is just unfair that way. I didn’t think that having everything tailored was something that people did.
It’s so obvious, I can’t believe I didn’t know this. But no one ever told me. I was told about bikini season and dieting and targeting your “problem areas” and avoiding horizontal stripes. No one told me that Jennifer Aniston is out there wearing a bigger size of Ralph Lauren t-shirt and having it altered to fit her.
I sat there after I was told this story, and I really thought about how hard I have worked not to care about the number or the letter on the tag of my clothes, how hard I have tried to just love my body the way it is, and where I’ve succeeded and failed. I thought about all the times I’ve stood in a fitting room and stared up at the lights and bit my lip so hard it bled, just to keep myself from crying about how nothing fits the way it’s supposed to. No one told me that it wasn’t supposed to. I guess I just didn’t know. I was too busy thinking that I was the one that didn’t fit.
I thought about that, and about all the other girls and women out there whose proportions are “wrong,” who can’t find a good pair of work trousers, who can’t fill a sweater, who feel excluded and freakish and sad and frustrated because they have to go up a size, when really the size doesn’t mean anything and it never, ever did, and this is just another bullshit thing thrown in your path to make you feel shitty about yourself.
I thought about all of that, and then I thought that in elementary school, there should be a class for girls where they sit you down and tell you this stuff before you waste years of your life feeling like someone put you together wrong.
So, I have to take that and sit with it for a while. But in the meantime, I thought perhaps I should post this, because maybe my friend, her friend, and I are the only clueless people who did not realise this, but maybe we’re not. Maybe some of you have tried to embrace the arbitrary size you are, but still couldn’t find a cute pair of jeans, and didn’t know why.
This, so much this! Also:
[ignore the actual size numbers on the tags, find something that fits an individual’s widest place]
That is the way people should buy clothes! Every time I see, in movies or series, about women or girls shopping, trying outfits and being stubborn because “THEY SHOULD FIT IN THAT PETITE SIZE” [also they always use this as a joke]: why? why the fuck women should fit? why it’s a “must” to fit in that petite size? (also, they even make the joke bitter, because in the movies they’re already skinny girls, who are complaining about how the clothes don’t fit them) Why you, as a woman, AS A PERSON, should adapt to an inanimate object -in this case, clothes-, if you’re the living being, the one who breathes? Shouldn’t be the other way around?
That’s why the industry is so venomous: to make you think you’re not worth “because you’re not petite size”, and your goals and your points of view and your dreams and your opinions and everything else that makes you a whole person… no, nothing of that matters “because you should be 2 size or less”, FUCKING INDUSTRY!! AND NONE OF US SHOULD LISTEN TO ITS CRAP!!!
Have you guys noticed how a new OTP arrives?
You’re in the computer minding your own business when, SUDDENLY
IN THE DISTANCE
A NEW OTP IS WATCHING YOU
AND CHARGES DIRECTLY AT YOU
By the time you try to figure out what the hell is that, the OTP SLAPS YOU IN THE FACE, PUNCH YOU IN THE GUTS AND THROW YOU OUT THE WINDOW AND HOWLS:
“YOU WILL SHIP ME NOW, YOU PEASANT!!!! AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!”
yeah… pretty much that…
Not exactly a drawing, but…
A friend thought I would enjoy the series.
Why would she think that.
The fact that Sherlock is a “safe place” for us probably says a lot…like…that we’re all fucking masochists….but yeah you should totally continue watching supernatural because well….masochism
I finally finished Season 1.
My brain is exhausted from crying and creating intracranial tear ducts JUST SO IT COULD CRY IN THE FIRST PLACE
HOW DO SUPERNATURAL FANS DO IT
Yeah it’s probably the masochism
…and morbid curiosity
which would explain why this Sherlockian is still watching it
ever so slowly
I will catch up
One of the main reasons I haven’t pass the 4th episode in supernatural is my natural laziness, but other is precisely this, !!THESE FEELINGS!!!, NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!, and omfg!! poor fans!! it was heart wrenching to see them in my dash saying things like “next episode will be sunshine and rainbows! AT LAST!! let’s hope nobody dies!!” and I was like ‘waaaaht???’, I’m pretty sure someone said: “guys, I’m afraid, next episode seems so bright… what if they kill someone?”
I’m pretty sure -no, I’m positive sure- the producers are just like Sue Silvester: “We’ll give all these kitty cats to the fans (team free will, the angels, some demons, I don’t know), we’ll let the fans fall in love with those kitty cats, and then, on some dark, cold night -which I think is EVERY EPISODE- WE’LL STEAL AWAY INTO THEIR HOMES AND PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE!”
So, noo!! I don’t want more tv pain in my life!! :SS
Thanks for your kind answer, X57! XD XD I’m always insecure about my english, because I feel I might sound rude, or dumb :S
Yes, messages in askboxes can be only 200 (?) characters long, no links and no enters, and sometimes tumblr eat those messages. Fanmail is better, but you need to wait one week after you started following a person to use it. And with Submissions, people can write you more and send you links! The downside is you can’t answer back in private, but you have the option to send an ask to the submitter.
Already rebloged your wonderful work in the prons blog! (sherlockporns) XD and I’ll be glad to reblog more of it! The only works I don’t want to reblog there are shotacons, because… well, I think is a very delicate subject. But I’ll reblog them or like them in my main blog. And I would love to see -if you’re planning to do it, of course- your work about Holmescest, or Johnlock, or more Sheriarty with kidlock, I think they would be very interesting! :D
No need to worry about your English, it sounds perfect to me!
I thiiiiink I’m getting a handle on the submissions thing. With a bit of html editing anyway. :/
And thanks! I will have more coming. Totally understandable about shota. I expect to promptly loose ALL the followers I just gained with it. But that’s ok. Anyway, yes! All of the above pairings! Siluslocke and I have been writing fic that we need to start posting as well.
Omg. THANK YOU FOR THE ART RECS. Little Seb, adult Jim, HOLY SHIT YES. This had never crossed my mind with Seb, but I love the idea. I have this terrible headcanon of Jim being secretly overly fond of young boys… It probably had something to do with him having a 20 year obsession with Sherlock and posing as a children’s television actor. Possibly even his role in IT, too….
OMG! Indeed it is a terrible headcanon, so full of spines and dangers, a very very very difficult subject… yet, as a story, I think it can be very interesting.
Shotacon is NOT on my list of favorite things… however, (-preparing to lose followers now-) there are some kind of dinamics that I find very interesting. For example, I loved this beautiful movie -which is absolutely not shotacon-: American Heart (have you seen it?). The dinamics between father and son were heart wrenching and amazing, and both actors were super awesome in their roles. And you know, Breaking Bad give me some kind of vibes… Jesse is an adult, I know… however, that age gap, the whole relationship with Mr. White, I find it UNF!!!! AMAZING!! LOVED IT!! XD XD
So, I don’t know how to explain it… [my tsundere side is showing] i-it’s not that I like shotacon… -baka!-, but if it has some things that I find interesting, then I like that kind of shota… i-it’s very difficult to explain… however, you guys are free to write and draw whatever you want, and I’ll just click like and reblog on the things I like the most XD XD XD, so I wish you the best of luck, guys! following Siluslocke now and Best Regards!! :D
ohMYGOD i’m crying
I’m very very sorry for butting in, guys, and this is not an attack against anybody here… but, why he has to be disgusted? As far as I know, she’s an actress, who has a contract to be in Twilight. And that’s all. Also, Daniel Craig is an actor, who has a contract to be in the Bond franchise. He’s not the producer, nor the cast director, I’m sure he has contributed with ideas (apart from his acting) to the franchise, but the final decision about who participate in the movies are for other people, not for him.
I despise Twilight with all my heart, but I don’t think Kristen Stewart is actually “Bella”, so why she cannot be a bond girl? A lot of Bond girls were only pretty women and they were not famous for their intelligence (wich has nothing to do with the actresses, I’m talking about the characters).
Also, I think she’s actually good looking and she could be a pretty good Bond girl. So people could forgive to Robert Pattison being in Twilight but they can’t forgive Kristen? I don’t know, I’m not ok with Daniel Craig’s attitude. Disgust? My goodness Daniel Craig, like you have never make a mediocre role in some horrible movie when you started.
I was checking some of the followers of the other blog XD, and I realized there was two of you I was pretty sure I was following, but I checked it and I wasn’t. So, I don’t know what’s going on here with tumblr, but since I came back from the hiatus, I have not unfollowed people. The last (and almost only) time I unfollowed people was like… 9-10 months ago, when I was looking who deactivated their accounts or who was inactive in months.
So you know: if I’ve unfollowed you in the time between june and november of this year, it wasn’t me, it was automatic tumblr (I wonder if there’s a limit for the people who you can follow).
Well, that would be all, I’ll be busy with the other blog, feel free to lurk in the blog and don’t forget to check the tags!! XD
I was watching “Ned’s declassified school survival guide” (yeah, so what, sue me) and I think it’s a brilliant show! XD XD it’s cheesy, low-budget, funny, silly and witty, and it has so much cool stuff! I know it has cliché characters (the bully, the nerd, the bee queen, what have you…), but they’re endearing! none of them are trully evil or trully good, they’re just… kids!
The show deserved an oscar or something… XP
I wanted to write this before, but since english is not my first language, I think it would be a disaster… but you know what? if I wait to my english to get better, then I’ll wait my whole life, so better start now and correct laterz (If you guys are really bothered with grammar and spelling, please be my guests and tell me where I’m wrong, I’ll glady edit it, thanks).
PORN OR NOT PORN: THE INSECURITY
(For the shy fan-artists who are insecure about drawing or not drawing porn)
So you’re an artist. More specifically, a fanartist. And you like to draw. More specifically, draw fanart. And you secretly love PORN!!! but you feel very insecure drawing it. But you still want to draw it!! Yet you’re very afraid!! but you must draw it!!! Why? Why is that? and what can you do to fix that dilemma? Let’s see this point by point:
***”I DON’T DRAW PORN BECAUSE…”***
1. “people will call me atention-seeker”.
PFFfftt! Yes, because being an attention-seeker is so wrong!! my friend, that people who say you’re an attention-seeker… they are too!! WE, everybody here in tumblr, in facebook, in twitter are attention-seekers!! If we weren’t, we wouldn’t have these accounts! Of course everybody look for attention, because we want to reach people with our same interests, so we can talk and share! So, if this is stopping you, then you should reconsider it again…
2. “I’m afraid I won’t draw the fe/male anatomy correctly”.
That’s why we have google! Just google that stuff and study it. (For slashers, I think this wonderful site, homotography -now with tumblr!-, has an excellent balance between porns/erotic/artistic). Also, this is an artistic expression, so you’re allowed to have artistic license. And please, don’t, DON’T BELIEVE IN ANON HATE. If you have made your research, and still some stupid tells you “but that’s not how a penis is”, then you tell them “there’s a lot of shapes, forms, sizes of boobs, why there should be only one for penis?”
Or if you’re very very shy, or you’re tired of search, then, it doesn’t matter! nobody says that it has to have penis/boobs to be porn! Well… maybe that’s needed… but remember that you can draw a very very very erotic subject without showing anything! Use shadows, courtains, silhouettes… the eroticism is in the readers mind more than in the drawing itself.
3. “people will think I’m a pervert”.
That’s a tricky one. It’s ok to care about the opinions of your tumblr/deviantart/pixiv friends! Don’t do anything you’re uncomfortable with. If you’re really really shy but you really really want to draw porn, I advice you to have another blog (or tumblr, or deviantart, or pixiv) with another user name, and post your porn there. So your friends won’t see it and you will see other people’s opinion about it. Also, you could ask your friends, leave them some hints: “what would you think if I was interested in drawing erotica?” Maybe they can be more agreeable with the idea than you think. Give them a chance!
And Please, please, send to hell all the anon hate, erase that immediately. Hate is stupid, and you don’t need to care about someone who send you anon hate. If you receive anon compliment, then take it! XD XD
4. “if the actors/directors/producers of the show find it, I’ll die of shame!”
I think that when you draw, you draw FOR YOU, not for other people (unless you want to give them a drawing). You draw because you feel it, or you need it, or you want to share, or you want to appeal, that’s ok! I think there’s very few artists that draw porn and show them to the actors/creators! Usually it’s other
crazy people who show the drawings to the actors/creators! (or martin freeman find them by himself).
I think you should get advantage of the fandom, and jump on the wagon! (if that’s what you want). There are a lot of amazing artists who draw porn and a lot of amazing artists who don’t. Mix yourself between them, follow artists who draw porn, talk with them! they could have more useful advices than mine!! And you’ll see you’re not alone!
5. “people will think I’m fetishing gays/lesbians/heteros”.
Yeah… this is a tricky one too… and with my poor vocabulary I can’t really explain… Since I’m aiming this to fanarts based in tv shows/movies then… it’s very difficult to say who can cast the first stone… I think the first ones in fetishing people are the show creators!! haven’t you seen how SPN pimps jensen and jared?? all those scenes with them shirtless??? daniel craig showing those abs in casino royale??? benedict with those tight tight shirts?? or only using a bedsheet??? I’m sorry but I think a lot of artists just draw what they see in their beloved tv shows/movies!!
Also, I don’t think the artists just want to fetish people, they want to share their vision about their beloved otp’s… and that vision is not the same as the one they have about lgtb/hetero people… but like I said, this is a difficult point, and it implies a lot of things… The only thing I can say is believe in yourself. You want to draw porn because you want to express something. If some people give you sass because they think you’re fetishing people… look for other opinions too. Ask for advice to other artists, ask for advice to your friends. They will have a more accurate point of view, a more honest point of view, that can help you to overcome this difficult question.
6. “because I don’t like it”.
Ok, and we respect that. It’s not necessary to draw porn to get the fandom attention. Nor it is an obligation. My point about those other points was to show why those other points needed to be revisited. But this point, I respect it. You don’t like it, you don’t need to prove other people anything. There is so many ways to draw, so many techniques, so many visions, so many voices, you don’t need prons. If you want to do it, it’s ok. if not, it’s ok to.
I hope this stupid rant of mine can be useful to those shy artists who want do draw porn, but they don’t dare. Best Regards!
Maine Republican chair suspects voter fraud because black people voted in his state.
He actually said this, and then some. Watch the whole thing.
NOBODY IN TOWN KNOWS ANYONE WHO’S BLACK
NOBODY IN TOWN KNOWS ANYONE WHO’S BLACK
NOBODY IN TOWN KNOWS ANYONE WHO AW FUCK IT
I just want to note here, as Enjoli knows, that I am black and I grew up in rural Maine in the 1970s/80s. And at the time, there weren’t a lot of us, but every time I go home I see more black folks at Shaw’s. (Admittedly I wonder, why are you moving here? Are there jobs up here again?)
Guy in Maine, you know people who are black. You just don’t think of them as black because they’re Mainers—people who, like me, were born in Maine—as opposed to People From Away (our quaint Maine term for people who aren’t Mainers). I mean, all black people are From Away, right? But Mainers, well, they’re Mainers, so they don’t really count as being black.
And right there, you have the racial politics of my upbringing.
I think he really wanted to say “nobody in town WHO IS IMPORTANT AND WHO’S WORTH (AND WORTH TO LISTEN) know anyone who’s black” but he didn’t say that because that would have been politically incorrect. And Political Correctness is FIRST!! and then after that comes the people… and then the black people… and then the hispanic people… and so on… I wonder if Guy in Maine was educated with treats like a puppy: “Don’t say the N word in public, that’s bad! you can crush people’s rights, you can deny rights, you can choose who has rights, who doesn’t, but never, never say the N word in public, do you understand? It’s better to say black.”
ive been staring at this picture for like 5 minutes idk how to process all of this
Well, about the Canadians… THE WHOLE CONTINENT IS CALLED “AMERICA”, SO IT IS CORRECT TO CALL CANADIANS, MEXICANS, BRAZILIANS, SALVADORANS, ALL THE PEOPLE LIVING IN SAID CONTINENT “AMERICANS”, AS YOU GUYS ARE “EUROPEANS”, “AFRICANS”, “ASIANS”, “AUSTRALIANS” OR “ANTARCTICANS”.
But nooo, USA keep the rights about the word “America” and that’s why I’m not an american, I’m just a simple mexican living in a floating continent who knows where…
bUT BEHOLDS, looks like today this landmass it’s not called “America” anymore -like I was teached back in the days-, but “North America” and “South America” (“Central America” is not even worth of mention… ah, no, it’s part of North America, ok), and the whole landmass now it’s called “The Americas”.
Well, I don’t know you, englishman/englishwoman, but if you really want to be called “English” and not “British”, at least you can learn about how other people wants to be called.
I’ve made a graphic to better understanding (gimp2, 5 minutes of hard work):
ETA: UPS, Looks like I just proved the point that englishman/englishwoman was saying… canadians and the other people are really not americans… well, I learned something new today :D THEMOREYOUKNOW.GIF
Motherfuking tumblr, they changed something and they didn’t give a warning at least! YO GUYS, CHECK YOUR SIDEBAR LINKS OR ANY IMPORTANT LINKS YOU HAVE IN YOUR PAGE, LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE NOT WORKING NOW.
the links that are working (for me) are:
the links that are NOT WORKING (FOR ME AND FOR ALOT OF PEOPLE) ARE:
- YOURTUMBLANAME.tumblr.com/anything you have put there like:
fOR the moment, for people who have tags for their works (fanfiction or fanart), you should change those links to:
- YOURTUMBLANAME.tumblr.com/tagged/the tags you have, like “slash”, or “kittens”, or “dragons”
And that’s all. I hope the blogroll will work again.
Well, nice to see you and stay fresh. XD XD ME
