There’s a dog at work today who is a real life deviantart oc. He’s a border collie with long blonde 90s surfer dude bangs and it’s the most amazing thing I’ve seen since I started this job.

Nature is a wonder.

The best thing that ever happened was definitely during “The Message”. I think for some reason it wasn’t on the gag reel. It was possibly the best piece of acting I’ve ever seen, which is the three-sixty [360 degree camera rotation] that Tim [as director] did while everyone was listening to the farewell message from Tracey [played by Jonathon Woodward]. And Nathan is standing with Zoe, looking kind of stricken - this is his old friend - and the camera pans around to Kaylee - and Nathan’s sitting next to Kaylee, looking kind of stricken in another way. And he managed to duck under the camera and get to every single member of the cast and just look really sad [laughs]. And some of them just could not keep it together and some of them did. But I’ve got to tell you - it’s hard to describe. And then when it finally panned down to the body in the coffin, Nathan was lying in [Woodward’s] arms, looking stricken. It was unbelievable - not only hilarious, but technically proficient. He really put some thought into it. But that’s Nathan.

  • It’s called Master of the Universe.
  • It was originally published on Fanfiction.net (aka where fanfiction goes to die).
  • E.L. James’ pen name was Snowqueens Icedragon because of course it was.
  • Snowqueens Icedragon does not use quotation marks. 
  • She does, however, make up expressions like "my very small inner goddess sways in a gentle victorious samba" and “I can almost hear his sphinx-like smile through the phone.”
  • They spend more time filling out sex-related paperwork than they do actually having sex.
  • This is my reaction to all of the sex scenes:
  • image
  • Because the human body doesn’t work like that
  • This is my reaction to everything else:
  • image
  • Because the english language doesn’t work like that.

The 50 Shades of Grey trailer just dropped, so here’s a link to the original Twilight fanfiction that the book is “based” off of, because if you’re gonna read the book before you see the movie you might as well read it in its original format. 

Oh my god it has those banner photoshop graphics we all spent at least a week thinking were really cool and a sign of a quality fic

Reblogging again because her ff.net profile still exists, though it doesn’t have anything on it.

Yup. Was just talking to my roomie about this yesterday. Honestly? I -like- the fact that this can happen. I hate the work and the film, sure. But think about it: Fan fiction can get greenlit into a film. That happened.

Sure, it happened to something pretty bad. But that means it can happen again. I like that thought.

Going through my weeb tags I found this post (the first one that I replied to) that made me want to pull my hair out. See how hurt this girl’s feelings are because she can’t have something more ~exotic~special~different~unique? So I went through her archive to find a post that could have caused someone to tell her she can’t have a Korean name and then I found the second one. Her thinking about which last name she should use.
First of all, let me tell you how really fucking ignorant she is since 1. last names never change for a simple reason like ‘I want to change my name’ like just no never happens anywhere. 2. Lim/림 isn’t a common name at all, especially not in South Korea. In North Korean, however, 임 (Im, a rather common last name) is written as 림 so that could lead to very awkward situations. You don’t really want to be mistaken as a North Korean, unless you enjoy being treated like a dog.
Secondly. Korean names aren’t just a ‘mix and match game’. You can’t just put Min and Yeon together because it sounds cute. Our names don’t work that way. If that was how we got our names, there would be people with the names 새기 (close to 새끼 (saekki) which means bastard, 변태 (byuntae) (pervert), 생선 (saengseon, fish), 관리 (gwalli, administration)), 소주 (soju), 숙성 (sooksung, aging) and none of those make much sense as names. Parents put effort in choosing their child’s name, they base themselves on their ancestors, cultural history, their family’s past, the province they’re from, the dialect they speak and these are only a few examples. You can’t just take Korean sounding syllables and put them together, especially if you don’t know the meaning of those syllables and of the name you get in the end. (I think we’ve all seen this game based on Korean and Japanese names, “what’s your exotic name? take your birthday numbers and find your name!!!!”, it’s the same shit as what this girl is trying to do)
But what angered me most is how she thinks it’s not harmful, how she thinks people are psychotic for protecting their culture, how she has the right to have a Korean name and even Koreans should just deal with that because she’s oh so special. No. Every fucking day I spend in a place where Korean isn’t the main language, I get made fun of.
People have no shame in laughing at my name when I’m right there in front of them. My last name is Ham. English speaking people are most likely going to pronounce that has ham, hem. It’s Ham with an AAAAAAAAAA not an E in the middle. 함함함함 and I repeat it countless times. I try to speak slowly and clearly just to make sure they get it, but no. People think it’s funny so they disregard my effort and they make my favorite joke; the ham and cheese joke.  “Do you come with cheese?”, “You must be tasty”, “Do you ever get discounts on ham?” and that’s only three.
My given name is I-Ryang/Iryang (pronounced as Ee-Ryang with the same A as in Ham ^^) Once they’ve noticed how it’s spelled, they start joking about me being the next possible Apple product. “Oh iRyang like an iPhone!” or the most recent one I heard: “E.T. phone home, Ee-Ryang phone home” my eyes almost rolled out of my skull upon hearing that.
My sister’s last syllable if Rim (림). I still remember some ignorant teen boys asking her if she liked rimming, or making other gross remarks like “She must like rimming since she even put the word in her name!” 
Every fucking day. Even when I call them out on it. They don’t see the problem. It’s “just a joke”. It isn’t harmful because “it’s an innocent joke.”, I need to ‘get over it’ because it’s ‘just’ a name. "Get an English name if you want to be respected." Because things are that easy right?
Every fucking day I get made fun of. I need to tell people my name is Yang or Ryang because Iryang is too special, too much of an effort. I usually need to get official documents redone because they managed to fuck up once again. My name has 187918 different spellings because I need to simplify it enough so white people will understand and be able to write it too. I get weird stares when I tell people my name, people tell me how to write my own fucking name, people tell me how to pronounce my name because the way I do is ‘probably is gonna be too difficult for English speakers’.
The question “What’s your name?” is the most stressful fucking question in my life because I know that by telling them, I’ll be mistreated and this girl thinks it’s cool. It’s exotic, it’s unique, it’s special, she deserves it and I need to see a psychiatrist to get over my own problems because I don’t appreciate people misusing my culture, because I don’t appreciate being mistreated and disregarded for being myself, while girls like her can get away with it.

Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

Follow micdotcom 

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

About damn time someone stepped up against this stupidity.
