go-captain-chris-redfield: Gravity falls season 2!!! I can't wait!
randomthefox: Speaking of Gravity Falls, I remember a while ago people posting a gif set from an episode where the Friend Zone was mentioned, and everyone was taking the opportunity to "represent feminism" with it. What's funny to me though they act like the friend zone is some new concept invented by MRA's, when according to my own mother they had the friend zone since SHE was in high school. Mind if I ask what your thoughts on the whole new friend zone crusade are, especially in regards that episode?
It’s funny that they try to use that as an example when it was made clear that Mabel was intentionally, consciously trying to use that concept against Lil’ Gideon.
What they also fail to mention is that Lil’ Gideon had been manipulating the people of Gravity Falls, was a threat to the economic livelihood of the Mystery Shack, and also TRIED TO KILL HER BROTHER (who was rightfully suspicious of him since day one).
Frankly, I think the entire “friendzone” concept is a load of crap. Anyone who uses that term (and is actually serious about it) is probably the kind of person that BELONGS in their own, personal limbo. It’s just another example of people refusing to accept blame for their own failings, and instead pointing the finger at an imaginary boogeyman of their own design.
ppl that like robbie confuse me
i’m sure he has some deep psychological issues to feel threatened by a 12 year old boy but c’mon that’s no excuse
In wondering how things are going to progress in season 2, I’ve been thinking about why Robbie is such a jackass around Dipper. The thing is, when you think about it, he has good reason to feel threatened. Dipper is clearly a hell of a lot smarter than he is, despite being younger. I think he also resents how quickly Dipper befriended Wendy, as well as the fact that (in Robbie’s eyes, at least as far as we know) he impressed Wendy by “defeating” the ghosts in the Dusk 2 Dawn, while Robbie did all of diddly squat.
This is a guy that’s liked this girl for years (as has been verified by Alex Hirsch), but he’s been too afraid and socially awkward to really do anything about it up until now. He’s been unable to make any kind of a real impression on her (mainly because he doesn’t seem to realize that acting distant and apathetic not only doesn’t make you “cool”, but it also alienates you, because you come off as hostile and unapproachable). Meanwhile, this kid suddenly comes out of nowhere, and makes a big impression on her in a very short period of time, while also making an idiot of him on multiple occasions (not like it really takes a lot of effort, since Robbie already does a pretty good job of making an idiot out of himself). Honestly, it almost seems like Dipper’s presence is what pushed Robbie into finally doing something about his feelings, even though he has since made such catastrophically stupid decisions out of fear and panic along the way.
While Dipper is also very self-conscious, he’s still a lot more confident than Robbie is (real confidence - not the false kind that Robbie uses to mask his insecurities). Everything Robbie tries to be seems little more than a false front to impress other people. Even though Dipper wants badly to impress Wendy, he still remains true to himself. Dipper is a more genuine, down-to-earth person, while Robbie seems to live in a land of perpetual misery that he puts himself in simply because he can’t just drop the “cool” act, and actually be himself. Dipper is liked by all of Robbie’s friends (including Wendy) for just being himself. Meanwhile, Robbie tries way too hard to be “cool”, and still doesn’t get as much respect from them as Dipper does. I think that’s why Robbie acts like such an assclown.
It’s like watching a dumb animal try to swim across whitewater rapids and nearly drown itself, instead of walking across on the rock bridge five feet away.
queentori17: I've literally seen men being called "dicks with wallets" on this site and yet people still try to say sexism against men isn't a thing
There is only one entity in this universe allowed to think of human beings as nothing but wallets.
And he’s a cartoon character.
I need Gravity Falls to start sooner than August 1st.
I need my GravityKitten mojo back. I have too many kittens I need to draw…
Look at him - he fears for his future.
"There are so many things I haven’t peed on yet!"
Both Wendy’s and Robbie’s Room is shown. Wendy’s is the night shot you may have seen before while Robbie’s is a dark dank pit of a room. Messy with a blacklight. On a pillow on his bed, written in invisible ink, it says “In the rain, tears can’t be seen” and has Wendy’s name as well.
i’m like halfway between laugh-sobbing and real sobbing
^ “In the rain, tears can’t be seen”
^ “Leave me alone”? The only other word I can decipher here is “Don’t”.
Who does he want to leave him alone? Plus, there seem to be two arrows above it, but what are they meant to be pointing at? Both pillows are also adorned with a few other random symbols.
Also, the ties to the dead/undead keep piling up, what with his coffin-shaped bookshelf (wait…he can actually read?), and the skull that sits upon said bookshelf.
It’s hard to tell if there’s anything else particularly noteworthy about this screencap, except that Captain Muppet Face needs to learn how to clean his room.
bastardoftherock: I didn't know that you like Gravity Falls. Who's your favorite character?
I don’t think I can really choose just one favorite. Mabel reminds me so much of myself when I was her age, but Stan is just one of the greatest cartoon characters of all time (you know I’m right - don’t fight it).
Then there’s this asshole…
…who needs more character development, because we haven’t seen a single real zombie in the series yet, and they keep dropping hints that he either is one, or perhaps might become one.
Man, I can’t wait for season 2.
