Aaaand I suddenly noticed the time, and realized that I need to get my ass in bed, because I’ve gotta go in to give plasma tomorrow.

skummyskull: Do you like Divine?
I ADORE Divine. I’m just very saddened that she no longer graces the world with her fabulosity (I use “she” in reference to Divine, as that’s how Harris Glenn Milstead (the man behind the makeup) referred to the persona as a character that he played).
The design for the character of Ursula in Disney’s The Little Mermaid (1989) was based on Divine.
In the sixth film in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991), there is a scene in the beginning that takes place on a plane, where the character of “John Doe” confesses his fear of heights to the elderly woman sitting next to him, who responds:
"Don’t be a pussy."
This small role (played in the film by Virginia Peters) was originally written for Divine, who sadly passed away prior to production.
For fans, or for those curious about learning more about this pop culture icon, Netflix is currently carrying the documentary I Am Divine (2013) for instant streaming.
theotakux: Have you seen Evilspeak? If so, what did you think? If not, stop whatever you're doing and go watch it.
Is it good? The poster for it is rad as fuck:
I know it also stars Ron Howard’s brother, Clint Howard (a decent actor, but a man whom I refer to as kindly as possible by saying he “grew out of his face”).
I believe it was also on the “Video Nasties” list in the U.K. (and actually, it was one of the 39 films officially prosecuted back then). It wasn’t until 2004 that the film was finally released uncut, due not only to the gore, but to the blatant mentions of Satanism (apparently, Anton LaVey is a great fan of the movie).
For any others like me that are now quite intrigued, I managed to find a link for it on Youtube (the running time seems to indicate that this is the full, uncut version).
technickelted: I know you don't drink and idk how you feel about hugs, but if I met you in real life, I'd definitely either buy you a drink or give you a hug. Or both. whatever's comfortable to you
Can you…drink hugs?
Well, I’ll be damned! You CAN drink hugs!
I will never understand bullying and hatred. What do you even get out of it, besides making yourself look like a complete asshole?
"I hate this person."
"I hate this group of people."
Okay…and what is that supposed to tell us about you, exactly? Are we supposed to be impressed? Are we supposed to think highly of you because of it? Because honestly, if I see someone spreading hatred against others, or putting others down so they can feel better about themselves, I’m going to be inclined to think a lot less of them.

zty0: The fact like people think that you are old for being 30 says a lot of the avarege tumblr user. Is like the 10 year old who think 20 something are old. For fuck sake, I think the 30 is when you actually start living.
That’s an excellent point.
The thing is, you don’t feel dramatically older. You just continue to feel like yourself. Sure, you may mature along the way from various life experiences, but you maintain who you are at your core.
It feels like one minute you’re 24, and the next, you’re 30 before you even realize the years have passed. But, you keep enjoying the things you enjoyed before, and you’re just as inclined to listen to all the new music, watch all the new movies, and see all the new shows out there. And really, you’re never done growing. But then, that’s not really a bad thing. I believe it’s important for people to try to hold on to their sense of childlike wonder. Once you lose it, it’s gone - you can never get it back.
If you can live each day with the same bright, open eyes you had as a child, then life will always be an adventure.
mako-tachi: Explicit and all type of yuri was originally made by women for women, and women still dominate in the creation of yuri related works. Yuri/Yaoi actually cover all works related to BL/GL, explicit or not because shoujo ai and shounen ai actually have a pedophilic meaning to it. Yuri magazines aimed at men have actually been canned before cause women weren't reading them. Do you mind clearing up that misinformation in your post though about who yuri is aimed at?
Now wait…What’s odd here is that I’m finding information that suggests otherwise:
Also, right from the mouth of the founder of Yuricon:
If that link doesn’t work, here is the glossary from the site:
"In Japan, Yuri is still associated with lesbian porn for guys, but the symbolism of the lily is common in lesbian as well as non-lesbian created works that include lesbian themes."
While the terms origins lie with women as the target demographic, there has been a definite shift towards males.
What I think needs to be understood here is that yuri falls under different classifications itself, including the portrayal of romanticism and strong bonds between women, with sexually explicit yuri being of it’s own subgenre. I think I’m going to have to do a bit more investigating on this.
Anonymous: I'm not a fan of anyone. Your just kinda pathetic. I wish that was not true but it is. I'm sure one day you will pull your head out of your ass and see just how sad what your doing is, or maybe you will say pathetic forever. I don't really care what you do. You know why I don;t care? Its because you don't matter. You will grow old and die one day and you will have done nothing. So I hope spending your time just talking shit is worth it to you.
Yes, of everything I’ve done in my life so far, calling a shithead a shithead on the internet is by far the thing I regret the most.
"Calling a shithead a shithead".
Yeah, I’m a “shithead” for standing up for people being bullied.
Tell me, what does that make you then? After all, two little boys were bullied to the point where it made national headlines just for having a pony backpack or lunch box, and another little boy TRIED TO FUCKING KILL HIMSELF over the same kind of bullshit that you spew on a daily basis.
Justify that. Justify your behavior.
Justify why you don’t stop to think, “Hey, maybe what I’m doing is hurtful to others. Maybe there are better things to occupy my time with than belittling many over the actions of a few. Maybe I shouldn’t be trying to apply sweeping generalizations to a group that numbers in the millions. Maybe what I’m doing is just perpetuating negative gender stereotypes, and making males less likely to ever want to accept or embrace anything feminine ever again because of how they’ve already been treated for it.”
