I’m playing Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations for the second time and Godot is too cool for words. So I made a drawing instead.
Okay so here’s the deal. I went to my friend’s house and she had A TON of games that I used to play (or force my dad to play for me) when I was little. Now some of these games sound weird, and kind of lame, but they’re WONDERFUL. So imma tell you about….
Scooby doo night of 100 frights for PS2 (also for x-box and gamecube)
A little diamond in the rough this is. Now most of the time, when a company makes a game based off of a tv series it’s HORRIBLE. But this game? (And Scooby doo mystery mayhem, for that matter) ARE WONDERFUL. Not only do they keep the humor of the series and completely overload the player with a sense of nostalgia, but the handling on the gameplay is actually really nice and it’s really entertaining. If you want to see a poorly animated talking dog on his hind legs sneaking past badies in a pair of pink bunny slippers
if you want to headbutt into the creeper with a football helmet on
If you want to hear a corny laugh track play and revisit your childhood, I definitely suggest giving this game a try.
Palette Swap: Athena and Simon
I like his books. I like that he promotes an idea that teenagers are not dumbasses who need to be talked down to. I like that he writes shit for teenagers to help them feel less alone, I like that he wrote a book about suffering from cancer based on the experiences of a teen fan who was suffering from cancer herself (Esther was her name, I believe). I like that he has a video-series on history, the environment and a multitude of other important issues and that he tells them with an interesting and funny edge. I like that he’s a human being who writes from the heart, engages with his fans, and is generally excited to be alive.
When you create anything popular however, it will create a niche, it will create a horde of fans who have connected to a specific set of ideals or conventions and then you’ll have a horde of people who hate on it and shit all over it simply because it’s become a niche.
I get really fucking pissed off with the movement that attacks John Green (or anything remotely popular) for seemingly fucking ridiculous reasons (see this post). Like, damn, he’s an older male and apparently it’s creepy to fetishize nerdy teenage girls; but he’s writing from his own perspective as a teen on the matter. He’s writing for teenagers; he’s not going to write about his fucking mortgage or marriage, jesus christ, believe it or not, not everything has a misogynistic agenda. Oh my god, his writing may fit into the “hipster ideal” like 500 Days of Summer. I doubt these authors wrote these stories with that intention, it’s actually the fans who created the niche because so many of them CONNECTED TO THAT EXPERIENCE AND THOSE FEELINGS. And calling him a pseudo-intellectual JESUS FUCKING CHRIST there is no basis for that. It’s like as soon as anyone confident in their intelligence and are allowed a platform to express that, they are called pseudo-intellectuals or arrogant.
Sure, yeah, he’s said some things that the overbearing social justice part of this website hate, but if you show me one person who has never said anything problematic and has yet to learn a few things, I’ll show you a fucking billboard saying “YOU’RE FULL OF SHIT.” He’ll fuck up, he’ll make mistakes, he aint perfect and more attention will be focused on him because he puts himself out there; but honestly all of his intentions to a reasonable person seem to be to engage with his fanbase in a fun and educational platform. And he has always addressed problematic shit he’s said in the past with understanding. He promotes education and intelligent discourse with teenagers who are often underestimated and shat upon by older generations. He’s trying to reach out to the teenage experience and because he is a white male, it will inevitably be from that perspective. That doesn’t make it a fucking crime. You don’t want that perspective? Don’t read his fucking books.
I’m fucking up to my ass with the John Green hate. Oh my god, he writes for teenagers, he romanticizes the teenage experience, he writes from cliched white teenage perspectives. HE WAS A WHITE TEENAGE BOY, OF FUCKING COURSE HE’S GOING TO WRITE FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE. And you bet your ass if he tried to write from any other racial perspective, he’d get shit on just as much for “daring to speak from the perspective of a minority, oh my god, how dare he assume he’d understand what that’s like”. FUCK.
If you don’t like it, don’t read the books, but don’t fucking attack one of the few respectable human beings out there who just want to fucking party with their fans, write from the heart and make education fun. Like, damn. Jesus christ. People say he fetishes the “nerd girl” ideal but to be fucking honest, there are actually real life people who adore girls who are nerdy and it’s not a crime.
I just, I don’t know. I fucking hate this website sometimes. I don’t care if you don’t like his books on the basis that you just didn’t like the writing or story or characters, but honestly, the hate I see directed at him on this website is self-righteous, overbearing social-justice crap that just seems to vomit over anything and everything that has become remotely popular or trendy.
I just. I just fucking. FUCK. I honestly don’t mind anyone who doesn’t like his books or any damn book for reasons based on it just didn’t speak to them on a personal level or they just thought it was poorly written, but I can see through this bullshit and understand so much of the hate directed at him is because of the creepy tumblr hive-mind of hating anything remotely niche or something that doesn’t 100% abide by social justice standards.
WOW LONG REPLY, sorry. I just…there will always be bits of bad in anything good, and it just feels like so many people on this website are determined to hate on the bad and shit all over the good. Nothing will be perfect, especially when it’s produced by a human being.
It’s a visual representation of entering a fandom.
This is the most accurate thing I’ve ever seen
The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website HERE.
It’s just a click… takes about 1 or 2 seconds.
there’s no pop-up ads or anything on the site
just click it once and you’re done
if all of my followers click, it’s more than a few thousand meals so.. please?
not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
