It was 40 years ago today in 1978 that CBS broadcast the Star Wars Holiday Special.
my favourite thing about tumblr is that they discontinued fan mail in 2015 but in 2018, three years later, they still haven’t edited two word out of this:
i wish this was me
See I accidentally sent fan mail instead of an ask last month. So not even Staff knows what features Tumblr does and doesn’t have.
Yknow I’m pretty sure in order to “remove” a feature they literally just delete the button that links you to it but don’t actually remove the capability of the site to perform the function (hence all the replies and reblogs from people saying they can send/receive fanmail etc) my theory is that the site is so rickety that the removal of any part of it could cause the whole thing to crash
Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.
Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:
You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little coats to keep them warm during their first winter:
See how they happily line up to put them on:
See? Better. Now they’re ready to go and explore the world.
And if they make it through the winter and we take good care of them, they will grow up to be strong and wise like their older fellows:
So, in case you were ever wondering, now you know.
As a Publishing Professional I can say that this is 10000% accurate, and I am a little concerned you’re just giving away all of our industry secrets on Tumblr.
I am a famousy awards-winning author of BOOKS and I endorse this post.
Normally I don’t like bringing this up, but: Tumblr is making it increasingly difficult for writers and artists to get their posts to show up in tags and searches, meaning that our fics and art are being exposed to fewer people.
Yes, it’s still possible to get posts to show up, but in the case of the search function, it’s only if they have no links - not even links to other Tumblr posts. For people like me who include links to other chapters in my fic so readers can get caught up on chapters they might miss, this is a huge problem. I basically have no choice but to include those links, or else I would make things massively inconvenient for my readers.
So why am I telling everyone this? Because this means reblogs are becoming more and more important to creators. With posts so difficult to find in searches and tags, reblogs are one of the few other ways for people to find new artists or writers.
You’re under no obligation to reblog my stuff, of course, but I want to put it out there why reblogs are so important to those of us who write/draw/create content.
(Also: While I’ve personally verified the stuff that’s going on with searches, I have no clue what’s going on with tags. Some of my stuff is showing up there, some isn’t, seemingly with little correlation to the links included. So tags might not be quite as strict, but they do seem to be less consistent.)
This is the Most Evil Thing I have ever heard
I don’t like star Wars, but this is what an anxiety attack sounds like.
Reminder that slavery is still legal in America.
Also known as community service; a regular prison activity around the world.
Free labor that isn’t voluntary is called slavery
I don’t know about slavery, I think this term is more fitting: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penal_labour
The 13th amendment defines it as slavery.
“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist in the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”
My point is literally proven in the quote you’ve just posted.
“… except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted…”
That’s my exact point proven, I feel inclined to thank you for doing my work for me.
Yeah. It’s slavery. Is that what you were trying to prove?
in the constitution, as you quoted above, legally people that have been convicted of a crime lose their rights as citizens of America. I’m not saying that is right or wrong, but it is legal.
It’s legal slavery
Exactly. It’s legal. If you’ve a real problem with that use your right as an American citizen and submit a bill.
Submit a bill to the people that are enslaving them. I’m sure that would work. We all know people with power over others give it up willingly, especially when it makes you more money.
“nothing will happen so I won’t try”
Nice defeatism, pussy. I bet that’s what MLK Jr. thought too
Why are you people like this
All I saw was “I don’t think it’s slavery” in a discussion and quote entirely about how it’s slavery.
“Yes, it’s slavery but at least it’s legal…”
“Yes its slavery but they totes deserve it bcuz reeeeeasons!”
Nah. Imma take a hard stance that slavery is bad in every case.
‘Slavery is legal so it’s fine’ is an… interesting take on the ethics of forced labour.
I’m not too great at law stuff, so I gotta ask: What makes the difference between community service, which is an accepted punishment (as far as I know), and slavery, which is seen as bad? Not trying to be snarky–I’m genuinely wondering.
Nothing in any qualitative sense.
If the government decides what a crime is, and criminals don’t have rights, then the government decides who has rights. How can a country that calls itself the “land of the free” be okay with the government deciding who has rights?
And if you defend modern day slavery because it’s legal, you would have also defended slavery 150 years ago, because that was legal too.
Some dude bro on the internet talking about the new She-Ra reboot: Ugh SJWs are taking over cartoons and making them all preachy. I hate it when shows try to push an agenda on kids. Why can’t they be like they used to be, you know?
Original He-Man, looking straight at the audience: We had a lot of fun here today, but you know what isn’t fun? Judging others based on how they look. Not liking a person because he or she is a different race or religion is wrong. Also, plant a tree, and don’t do drugs.
Lou Scheimer was born to a German Jewish family and believed that his cartoons had a responsibility to teach children kindness and respect for everybody.
Back then there were also MILITANT divides between “boy’s” and “girl’s” entertainment but when he found out He-Man had at least a small following of little girls he pitched the concept of He-Man’s sister She-Ra and was insistent she be as tough a warrior as her brother. He saw that girls actually did like “scary” sword and sorcery and had a WHOLE NEW FUCKING SHOW made so they could feel acknowledged and have a heroine to look up to with her very own series.
Later he would help design a whole new sci-fi fantasy setting with the most creative control he ever had, Bravestarr, and was adamant that the hero be a Native American man, the first ever in a starring role on a kid’s action show. He also wanted Bravestarr to be a positive role model by being a patient, gentle, soft spoken man who abhors violence and avoids using guns at all costs.
These cartoons are remembered as schlocky toy commercials and they ARE entertaining that way but real love went into them by a guy who wanted kids to grow up more sensitive and caring. Some of these same geeks crying about THE SJW’S were raised by even more bluntly progressive media than we’ve almost ever had and they didn’t even know it.
The fuck these dudes thinking? Why do they think we are SJWs in the first place? She-Ra made us that way.
