Have you seen the awesome Gravity Fall shorts Disney has been putting out?
Oh, that’s right! They just released “Cuckoo Clock” in the U.S.!
Did I already miss some of the other foreign shorts in English? I’ve seen most of them in the languages they were when they were posted on Tumblr (Russian, mostly), but I haven’t seen them in English yet.
Sad that you don't live in the us... I can't hurt you with a picture of a kinder surprise now... D: _____ Joke you're awesome I wouldn't want to hurt you anyway.
But…I do live in the US.. Did you mean to put the UK?
Kinder Surprise eggs are such a touchy thing to exist, since the toys are inside the egg. Of course, if people are just giving their kid the damn things without telling them there’s a toy inside, and if the kid bites into something that’s obviously not made of chocolate, but keeps eating it anyway, that’s just a case of an entire family of complete dumbasses. :P
Did you go to prom when you were a youngster? what do you have to say for your highschool-going viewers about prom? Is it ok to go without a date, and do you ask a girl out as your girlfriend, or friend?
I guess it depends on how you feel about that person. If they’re just a friend, then go as friends. If you feel stronger about them, and you think they might feel the same way, give it a chance! :D
When I went to prom, a lot of people went without dates. Wait….Prom is a junior thing, isn’t it? Then, I guess I didn’t go to prom. :/ I went to all the senior dances, though, including the big final one.
A friend of mine brought a blow-up doll for his date. He put it in a dress and everything. Poor thing had sprung a leak and deflated by the end of the night, though. Of course, this was a guy known for goofy shenanigans, so it was no surprise to anyone.
Oh my god you love slayers?! I'm so glad! Not that many people know about it. Who's your favorite character and if they made a reboot would you watch it?
It’s hard to pick a favorite, because I really love all of them. Lina’s fierce as hell, Gourry is such a lovable dumbass, Amelia is adorably strange, and Zelgadiss is the poor grump who’s stuck putting up with them.
As for a reboot, it would depend on how it’s handled, but I’d probably watch it. The series has remained pretty stable thus far, so I’m sure it would continue to be enjoyable.
Hey Tena! I'm not sure what you think about most anime that falls outside of the horror genre, but I learned today that Osamu Tezuka was inspired by Walt Disney. It was Disney's art style that inspired the "Godfather of Anime"'s artwork, most notably the big eyes and expressive faces. That's awesome! I'm actually curious: What do you think of mangas/anime that fall outside of the horror category?
Well, though I’m not as up on much of today’s anime, I have quite a fondness for a lot of the titles produced in the 80’s-90’s. I adore The Slayers, and I wish so bad that Dragon Half had more than just the single episode. The Project A-ko franchise is one of my favorites, and there were a lot of OVAs adapted from manga that I greatly enjoyed (such as Sukeban Deka). I’ve watched a lot of Ranma 1/2, Crying Freeman…gosh, it’s hard to remember them all.I also wish the local video store had carried more episodes of Metal Fighter Miku (I never got to see Miku fight her idol, Aquamarine!). Eh, no one but me has even heard of that one. :/
speaking of polybius!! there is actually a good all-encompassing vid about it on youtube by a channel by the name of "the game theorists", if anyone's interested. it goes into mk ultra and all that and it's really creepy and informative!
If these people gave one solitary fuck about that incident they'd be trying to track down the culprit now. First thing bronies did after hearing this story was inquire as to why it wasn't reported, first thing tumblr pseudo feminsts did was try find ways to use it to demonize a group of caryoon fans. Right now bronies are contacting people involved and spreading awareness about what to do in these events, while sjws are just using it to accuse others of pedophilia. Who's the better group here?
The first one, with the 3D graphics (while indoors) that - at the time - I thought were so “awesome”.
It’s the game with a T-Rex that was 100% UN-killable, and if you encountered it at all, you were pretty much screwed. But, of course, you literally had to go past where he ALWAYS was in order to progress in the game.
Also, the game was ridiculously involved (you needed multiple security cards to open specific doors that were scattered all throughout the park, and you also needed night-vision goggles, because if you were indoors, and walked into a dark room, you were likely going to be torn to shreds by a waiting velociraptor.
Despite the game being so irritatingly complicated, there was NO SAVE FUNCTION, which means that if you wanted to beat the game, say goodbye to sleeping for at least 24 hours.
I liked the Sega game a lot better - Rampage Edition. I beat it as Grant, but didn’t manage to beat it as a raptor. The crazy red boss raptor kept killing me. :(
Xtremely irrational minority person: kill and eat all straights author self insert: oh my such vulgar language i almost felt a bead of sweat roll down my delicate forehead mmm yes oh my good rational minority person: Hey, the Heterosexual Community has feelings that matter as much as yours or mine. By spouting such awful things you are literally oppressing people-their rights and privileges are being drained from them as you type on this microblogging site. To quote Dr. Martin Ghandi X, “why c an’t we jsut bbe nice uwu” Xtremely irrational minority person: *pees* author self insert: thank u good rational minority person. it is a shame not everyone can be as good as u *feed treat* good rational minority person: woof
ugh, whoever wrote this post doesn’t know what they are talking about. the straw manning is ridiculous. the trained animal parts bugs me the most.
~the aspie one
I don’t think neckbearcl (how pathetic do you have to be to name YOURSELF after a stereotype YOU created in order to dehumanize others?) has ever actually read any anti-sj comics.
For starters, that would imply that any of them would actually stop to read anything that calls their behavior into question. Also, aren’t a lot of these people the same ones that will talk over the top of minorities and victims, as though those people aren’t able to think or speak for themselves?
Friendly reminder: Tumblr “feminists” and SJWs frequently call actual rape victims “rape apologists” and “rape enablers” if those people don’t agree with their methods. They are flat-out telling these people that they must have invited one of the most traumatic experiences of their lives onto themselves. THEY LITERALLY VICTIM BLAME RAPE VICTIMS THAT DON’T AGREE WITH THEM.
You see yourself as a "social justice warrior" but really,you're just defending one exact topic and I see yourself as putting yourself on top of everyone else,cussing and spitting out words like you're actually gonna do something,which is really really funny,calling me a "bitch" isn't going to do anything and I don't mind people having certain interests but at least be careful with certain people,you don't know if they are sensitive or not but it's simple,you're insensitive yourself
… wow, are you STILL trying to send me messages? Seriously? It’s almost cute how you’re so infuriated that you completely eschew proper punctuation and grammar, and basically spit out the longest run-on sentence I’ve ever seen. I would congratulate you if I wasn’t becoming genuinely creeped out by your apparent obsession with me.
And no, hon - I would never call myself a “social justice warrior”, because most of those people have proven themselves to be far worse than anyone they target.
Honestly, if you can’t handle reading opinions that don’t coincide with your own twisted version of reality, you really shouldn’t be on the internet in the first place. I can’t even imagine how you’re going to fare once you get out into the real world. I can only hope you wise up by then, so that the rest of us won’t have to put up with you.
In any case, if it’ll help sooth your searing asspain, here’s a trophy for your participation.
Now, if you don’t mind, don’t bother darkening my inbox again. Trying to knock sense into you is like trying to teach a dead dog to fetch, and nothing you say will ever bother, intimidate, or affect me in any way other than pitying you for being this astoundingly infantile.
I know hugs and that kind of stuff isn't your thing, but is there anything you'd be willing to do to help cheer me up about the whole BABScon thing? I feel terrible about it, both because if it ends up true, it means a pedophile is walking free because the situation was mishandled, but on top of that, I jumped at the embellishments and inconsistencies in the story because I've had so much fake shit slung at me on here for being a brony, that I refused to believe there was any truth in (1/2)
(2/2) something with so many gaping holes. But…if it’s true, it means that I was defending a pedophile, even unwittingly. I feel absolutely sick about it; it’s been hanging over my head all day, and the bright technicolor talking horses that usually lift my spirits when I’m feeling down are just making my thoughts go to this whole mess.
The thing is, you weren’t defending a pedophile simply by questioning the story. You were approaching something with a healthy level of skepticism that you’ve found you need to have on this site just to stay sane.
Unfortunately, I can’t say for 100% fact that we have anything definitively concrete right now, but signs are pointing towards there being some truth to it. Sadly, the way the situation was handled (in the absolute worst way possible), has made it so a pervert was allowed to get away scot-free.
There was nothing wrong with doubting the story, especially given the tendency of these people to lie through their teeth at every opportunity they get, and then fail to provide a single shred of evidence to back their claims (while also conveniently ignoring anything that discredits them).
At this time, these people are even congratulating the booth owners that endangered the little girl’s life by not contacting security for NOT doing so, because they’re now trying to project their “rape culture” myth onto law enforcement officials. Ironically, they fail to realize that the main booth owners are part of the same fan base that they try to demonize on a daily basis.
The fact remains that these sad excuses for “feminists” are trying to take the actions of a single individual, and project them onto thousands of unique, diverse individuals from all walks of life. They continue to accuse others of being rapists and pedophiles, which actually constitutes as sexual harassment, so I strongly urge anyone being bombarded with these claims to screencap them, and immediately contact Tumblr staff about it, because SEXUAL HARASSMENT IS NEVER OKAY.
In fact, I think this should extend to any messages from specific people, targeting specific people, that are instructing others to “kill themselves”, or anything else that constitutes as hate speech. The person who tried to get someone’s husband deported just because she had disagreed with them on the internet learned the hard way that one’s words and actions have consequences: $50,000 worth of consequences, in this case.
While less serious, hate speech and legitimate bullying and harassment is absolutely unacceptable, especially over something as trivial as liking a fucking cartoon.
It’s just unfortunate that these alleged “feminists” care so little about the safety of an 11-year-old girl that they’re actually applauding someone for allowing a sexual predator to remain free to strike again.
Clearly, anon - it is not the skeptical ones that are the true monsters here.
wow kid you cant even handle me being nice that is offensive and i will start a blog about your oppressive nature towards my lovey-dubby comments being unanswered jerk love ya sweetie goodnight and i hope your feet are uncomfortably cold when you sleep
Okay, that made me giggle.
Also, I wear fluffy, knee-high spa socks with raccoon faces on them when I sleep, because they’re extra snuggly, and help with blood circulation in my legs.
Earlier I read the post that listed off your favorite urban legends, cryptid, and the like, and was immensely glad that Polybius was number two. I had only heard about the legend maybe a couple months ago, maybe more, but I was instantly intrigued. I was surprised when you did not mention Steven Roach in your post, however, as well as the alleged game being available to download on a Sinneslöschen website.
Hmm…either his name didn’t come up in any of the material I looked at, or for whatever reason, I didn’t think it necessary at the time to give names (which isn’t something I’d be likely to do, so I’m guessing it’s the former). For those who don’t know what we’re talking about, I posted about the Polybius legend here.
As for there being a downloadable version of the game, this is news to me as well!
I found the download site, which is here, for anyone else that’s curious about it. This I have got to see.
I’m just going to have to start deleting non-hateful anon messages, because they’re kind of holding up the production line, plus I’m just going to respond with the same “I’m not ____, I’m just tired” line anyway, and I only have just so many pictures of tired animals.
These messages are still appreciated, and give me many smileys, but there’s just so much mail…
I want so badly to jump in and give my two cents on this issue, but I don't think I could handle it. I don't think I could deal with my inbox being filled with death threats. How is Tumblr a 'safe space' when people are afraid to speak their mind?
Because it’s only a “safe space” if you’re a physically disabled, pansexual, otherkin, genderfluid, biologically female PoC that identifies as a “feminist”.
You need to hold a full hand of “oppression” cards in order to have “safe space” privilege.
Except then you’d have some form of privilege, thus negating all other factors.
Um excuse me but aren't you a bit too old to be harassing teenagers or people younger than you?????
Aren’t you a little too old to be trying to call people responding to questions asked of them on their own blogs “harassing”?
Also, I wasn’t aware that Tumblr had a magical age limit. Honey, I’ve been using the internet likely since before you were even born. My generation came up with many of the little acronyms and emoticons that you throw around like word sprinkles when we were your age. Also, it was someone from my generation that created Tumblr in the first place. Not to mention that Facebook and Twitter were also created by people around my age, or older. All the little spaces you congregate and try to claim as your own were brought into existence by other children of the 80’s like me.
The internet isn’t your domain, kiddo. We were here long before you moved in. We’re just letting you crash here for a while.
People that tag their hate on tumblr are usually the ones with the biggest cries for attention.
Pretty much. It’s like people that make a post about how much they hate that show (or its fan base), and then tag it with that show, just to make sure that anyone who likes it knows just how much these special little snowflakes want everyone to know that they have the final judgement call on what constitutes a “good” television program.
Because I’m not a coward that can’t handle criticism.
Unlike literally every last one of these “social justice warriors”.
Also, I understand that not only are some people shy, but on the political mine field that is Tumblr, it’s no surprise that people are afraid to speak their mind without coming under attack for it. On my blog, I allow them the ability to do so under anonymity.
I think the spoiled brat is you since all you can do is call people idiots when you're the one who needs their diaper changed whenever someone disagrees with you.
You literally just tried to use the equivalent of “I know you are, but what am I?”.
Honey, that only works for Pee-wee Herman. And even then, just barely.
Plus, please find where I have ever used the word “idiot”, because I’m pretty sure this is just you once again trying to put words in my mouth that I never said.
Also, the most hilarious part of all - you’re now trying to take what I said to you, and try to use it against me. That’s like a little kid being called “bossy”, and then countering with “No, YOU’RE bossy!”.
Like…I’m honestly at a loss with you. It’s getting to the point where I don’t even need to say anything, because you’re doing all the work for me. It’s almost endearing.
Makes me want to rent you out for parties while I stand in the corner playing the street organ. Maybe if you get bored of hanging around on the blog of someone that you don’t even like, we could come up with some kind of an agreement. I’ll even provide the tiny fez and tip cup for you - it’ll be great.
Are you getting mad? I mean, I'm just being honest, like you are with other people. 'Honest.'
Nah. Like I said, I’ve put up with much worse.
You can’t phase people that have worked retail.
We’ve had to put up with unattended children opening oil paints and starting to eat them, indignant customers that demand to get the sale price on the item next to the one that’s actually on sale, and little old ladies still paying with checks during the lunch rush.
Being called the same, unoriginal roster of Tumblr buzzwords by entitled teenage girls with too much free time on their hands is about as anger-inducing as a piece of dust on my monitor.
Ew you're horrible. Is hate to live with someone as narrow minded as you.
Yes, I’m so horrible because I don’t automatically change my opinion in order to make you feel more comfortable.
But seriously, if you cling to my ass any harder, I’m going to have to start putting ointment on you. So, if you don’t mind, I’m sure there has to be SOMETHING in your life worth dedicating your time to that isn’t aimlessly hanging around on the blog of someone you don’t even LIKE just to keep parroting yourself as it’s ever going to change anything.
You’re like a ████████ dog sitting in the backyard barking at a dandelion for for three hours.
It's not about disagreeing, wtf. You can disagree with people but the way you handle things is just out of control and I just wish you'd act like your age. That's all.
"Out of control". Oh man, this just keeps getting better and better.
Hon, the only thing you’re accomplishing by continuing to send me your word-shaped tears is making yourself look like a toddler in a Toys ‘R Us that drops to the floor and screeches at the top of their lungs in varying octaves (some of which only dogs can hear) for fifteen minutes straight until their parents finally cave in and give them the toy they want just so they’ll shut the fuck up.
Unfortunately, that’s not going to work with me. I used to babysit an entire neighborhood with twelve kids.
At 14, I worked at a McDonald’s during the “Teeny Beany Babies” rush.
I have worked at a Toys ‘R Us on Black Friday more than once, and have even donned the Geoffrey costume for in-store children’s birthday parties.
I have also worked at a sporting goods store less than a mile away from Lambeau Field on a game day.
If you think that you have a snowball’s chance in Hell of wearing down my patience, you’ve got another thing coming.
Excuse my mistake in messing up those words. But you still are acting very childish and it's upsetting because the brony fandom does not need someone like you defending them since you're unfair in everything you talk about. You don't have to be nice but god, can you act like a decent human for once?
Oh, god. I’m “unfair”. This is absolutely PRICELESS.
Honey - no amount of your sad attempts at intimidation and self-righteous reproach is going to make me “stop” standing up for people that are being treated like dirt by people like you. And the only thing you’re doing here by crying all over my inbox like it’s your dog’s paw-shaped gravestone in the backyard is only just showing everyone else that you just plain cannot deal with being in the wrong.
You can’t stand someone standing up to you, and telling you that your method of “activism” is not only hateful and self-serving, but is doing more harm than good.
You can cry me a river and then drown in it for all I care. Your problems are not my problems. They are not anyone else’s problems, and THEY NEVER WILL BE.
