I read this in the doctor’s office so Time Magazine didn’t earn money from this crap.
Whether it be fanfiction, original stories, drabbles, songs, poems, books, or anything that has to do with creative words, then reblog. Let’s gather all the writers of Tumblr together.
Okay, I think I figured out which pedal works the gas and which the brakes. I’m cool, I’m cool.
Hi everyone, I’m a guy who talks about difficult-to-watch movies online while wearing a brown/olive sports coat. It’ll be a bit before I start really customizing this tumblr and making it my own, with…
i was just getting mad about this a minute ago
Well this is something.
I drew a The Cinema Snob.
I admire his ability to sit through some of these films. I couldn’t. Also, he be stylin’.
This is pretty rad.
And now I can get my nerd on, catching up on the anime classics and finally finish watching Star Trek Season 1. Right now I’m watching Macross Plus which has robot plane fights and suddenly emotional baggage in the rain. So Macross Plus predates the Coachella Tupac Shakur Hologram by twenty years, and even now the Miku Hatsune Hologram concerts scare the shit out of me.
I wish I didn’t have to study so hard so I could do nerd things still. I’m way behind on fandoms.
The Jaegers of Pacific Rim. I can’t wait for this movie to come out.
Australia has a giant robot. I’ll let that sink in.
AUSTRALIA HAS THEIR OWN GIANT ROBOT.
And it’s gonna tear our cultural cringe limb from limb!
So this is going to sound utterly insane, because it is, but when I’ve @ replied to somebody I care about or value the opinion of on Twitter, and they ask me to chill out or relax or say something of that ilk that makes me worry I’ve offended or irritated them, their reply telling me to calm down, or worse, no reply at all, combined with their avatar not turning up in my feed for a while… It makes me terrified that they’ve blocked me and I’ve blown my chance of interacting with another human being forever.
If this sounds like I should get out more, you’d be right. A large portion of my strong attachment to Twitter people stems from my lack of meatspace people most of the time to interact with. So if suddenly your @ reply to my panic seems like I’ve annoyed you, it makes the panic worse! And you probably don’t even mean to do it! It’s a debilitating condition and it’s affecting my recent social media interactions rather badly due to the combined factor of my high functioning autism making it hard to read tone on the Internet. Hence at the first sign of trouble I become a ball of raw panic.
This is what becoming old is like, age slowly creeps up on you, in the form of nostalgic DVDs that were not previously there in shops when you went to bed the night before. Deal with it.
geekphilosopher asked: My twin brother is a film school grad and I am an art school student/novelist who reads a lot but he doesn't, often I have to familiarise myself with movies a lot more than I otherwise would as a sort of second language apart from literature/books so I can bond with him in a way he understands. Do you think people who work in less mainstream mediums often take a peek at other mediums to communicate better with others, artists or not? I feel this helps me befriend non-book people, find new ideas.
I think it’s healthy for artists to have a wide breadth of knowledge across mediums - it gives them more tools in their toolbox. So yes, keep doing...
