I’d long ago intended to share this photo of joshknightthefirst's and my wedding cake, with cake toppers specially made by riddlepanda. The cake ended up coming through even when I thought it wouldn’t. Josh’s topper is wearing Kamen Rider 1’s belt, while I’m carrying Cloud’s (FF7) buster sword. As you can see, there’s iconic logos from both Kamen Rider and Final Fantasy all around the cake. A couple of the logos ended up not being upright, but overall I was quite happy with the result. Thanks again, riddlepanda! :D
I think people are overreacting about not being picked. As much as I love TGWTG, I wouldn’t say they are on some higher pedestal than the rest of us. I mean, I was rejected but so what? I can audition for other websites and keep running my show for fun.
Just because you’re not what Rob Walker is after, doesn’t automatically mean your show sucks! It simply means some bearded guy in Chicago isn’t interested in you and Rob’s opinions are just as valid as anyone else’s. He’s a human being, not a god.
There’s no need to be so dependent on TGWTG to get your show noticed, just keep pushing forward and hope for the best. Even if the rejection makes you have doubts about your show’s quality, don’t see it as a dead end, look at your series and see how it can be improved! (Ask viewers, I’m sure they’ll happily give constructive feedback). Cheer up guys and don’t be afraid to gain success independently.
Tumblr, why do you do that thing where you give me an alert that says I have a couple of new updates on my timeline but then I click the little housey thingie and there’s absolutely nothing new loaded yet?
After only day back from Finland, it was time to head out again. This time, my girlfriend and I were off across the Atlantic to sunny Texas. VERY sunny Texas. This hasn’t been my first time in Texas this year, but it was my first time exploring a different region of the state – San Antonio. A place where it’s hotter and the culture is distinctly more in keeping with its Mexican connection. The…
It’s a shame you were here in SA and we didn’t meet up. This is my hometown.
Doing one great thing won’t make you a great person. Why did you do it? If you did it for your own ego or with other motives in mind, whether other people know about it or not, it makes your act not nearly as great. If you really are a good person, you probably aren’t out there bragging about the good things you’ve done. And you can’t just do the one thing and then try to justify repeatedly doing poor actions. Keep doing good things with others in mind, and keep doing them not because you get something out of it, but because it’s simply the right thing to do. And if you mess up, admit that you messed up, then pick yourself back up and try again. Never stop trying to be better than you are today.
Is that a dishwasher?
no, that’s just an xbox one. it just looks a bit funny. must be customized…
Seeing a lot of people in the notes call this a “VHS player”. Like, was I just around the wrong people? ’Cause when I was growing up, nobody called this a “VHS player”, we all called it a “VCR”. I even hear a lot of people my age call it a “VHS player” out loud, and I’m like, da fu? Have we been in the modern age of “cd player”, “dvd player”, “blu ray player” for so long that this isn’t a VCR anymore?
you and your husband are adorkable ^^ I hope you have many happy years together
Thank you! I hope we have many more adorkable moments!
Hello friends, fans and fellow fans in the reviewverse community:
If you’ve seen on Twitter recently, I made the following tweets:
This stems from some news I got recently of a former friend. I won’t name this person because I don’t want to slander them like they did to me. They lied about me, spread rumors, created drama and recently said racial slurs against me.
The cause is their disapproval of my relationship and my role in the fandom.
This person is a bully, a classic manipulator and what is worse is that they are trusted member in our community.
However more than a few people had problems with this person and some are afraid to speak out because of fear of what they might do. Others, like me, were victimized or intimidated or controlled if we seemed to be a threat to their standing.
This has caused me stress for the better part of this year. They have tried to pit people against me, isolate me, and break up my relationship. Others have spoken to me with words of support or with a story of their own of how this person hurt them.
Normally, I would just do what I did for months which was to not talk to them and ignore their attempts, but the comments on my identification as a Black American were the line. There must be consequences.
Last night, I tried to die. I felt alone and cornered. These actions taken against me, to isolate me, just increased the stress this person has given me for the last year. On top of spreading lies, intimidating others, and bullying, all to discredit me and bring stress to my relationships. I was just so tired, emotionally tired of everything. I feel like this person will never get consequences and I will never get justice for their manipulation because of the fear they put in others to not come forward. But I’m tired, and I don’t want to be afraid of them.
I thought I was in this fight alone. But there are others who have been a victim to this person and are scared of their influence, and nobody in this community should feel that way. To the people who are afraid she’ll do something to them: don’t be. If they have intimidated you, they are not really your friend, plain and simple. Friends aren’t tools. Friends aren’t tickets to e-fame. Friendship is based on trust and love.
And to that person, if they read this:
I pity you. And you won’t hurt me anymore. And most of all, I won’t let you use others to hurt me, either. I won’t let you hurt others the way you hurt me. I may not get justice, you may not get the consequences you deserve, but I can at least promise that I won’t let you become this community’s bully.
I’m not going to die. Not today.
There are some who may be aware that I was at one point assisting in organizing the Southwest Animation and Gaming Expo in San Antonio, Texas, originally slated for January 23rd - 25th, 2015. A lot of changes took place, many while I was preparing for my wedding and honeymoon, including changing the dates to the Labor Day weekend of 2015. There was quite a lot of disagreement in how the event was to be organized over the course of planning, and finally at this point a few days ago I resigned my position. I am aware of two others who left at the same time as me, but any other changes haven’t been brought to my attention. That is, aside from the fact that it would seem that my leaving caused a chain reaction that lead to the indefinite hiatus of the event. I am unaware of all of the circumstances surrounding this or what the next steps might be. I offered other services to the event from a position outside of organization and stated that I wished the best for the event in whatever way it turned out, but I’ve heard nothing on that so far and am not certain that I will.
For those who supported the idea of what I thought the event was supposed to be, I greatly thank you. If SWAG Expo picks up steam again, I will let you know what I hear, but I won’t be an organizer of the event.
If there’s anything you hear in regards to me and my position with the event, and you have any questions, please address them directly with me so that I can answer with full clarity. At this time there’s nobody I wish to directly harm by sharing any information, so I hope you’ll understand that what I’ve written here is pretty limited.
For now, I’ll just keep doing the entertainment I already do and try and perfect that (because I’m nowhere near perfect). Thank you again for your encouragement up until this point.
