Expect rebloggings of things that pertain to my various interests.
Alex, 19, Heterosexual male, aspiring yet unproductive writer. This blog is mostly for me to just reblog stuff relevant to my interests. If you are not satisfied with this rather stupid-looking selfie to judge me as a person, then check out the links below. Otherwise have a nice day.
So I’m thinking I’m going to do a complete overhaul of my blog soon. Until recently I’ve used Tumblr as a place to express my interests and enjoy the company of other people who share them (even if I never did a lot of social interaction with other people on here in the first place, but oh well). But I’m thinking now that I want to use it for something else. I always see artists and other people with creative talent more or less devoting their blogs to showcasing what they’re capable of. I’m thinking that’s the direction I want to take my blog. Make it less personal and more of a showcase of my work.
Of course that would mean I’d have to start making work to put up. But hey we’ve all gotta start somewhere and I think I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to be putting up here if I do do this big change.
The point of why I’m considering this, and probably why I’m going to do it, is because I want to change my image. I don’t want to be just another tumblr blogger with a goofy picture in his profile and obsessing over fandoms. I want to be someone who makes something and gets recognized for it. I’ve always been pretty ambitious in terms of what I want to do with my life but I don’t always follow through with my plans and there’s only so many times I can say “I want to be the next Joss Whedon/Andrew Hussie/Bryan Lee O’Malley/Lewis Lovhaug/Whoever” and not do anything about it. I want to start to set myself up as someone who can become what I always say I will and then become just that.
So yeah, going from “changing my Tumblr” to “I wanna be loved and recognized for my awesome work” is a pretty big leap, but aspiring to make impossible climbs is what I’ve been doing my whole life, why stop now especially if it gets me somewhere? In closing, if anyone who follows my blog notices a lot of my posts missing or the layout of my blog changing or something, don’t be surprised.
I saw this earlier today, and at first I thought to myself, “Well, the only thing I learned from this is that I should be e-mailing Disney Channel and telling them to keep doing what they’re doing in this regard.”
But then I thought, "You know what, why not?" Disney Channel has been getting hate from groups like Flordia Family Association and One Million Moms because of their choice to include a two mom family in one episode of their show.
In a business that runs off of support from its viewers, getting swarmed with anti-LGBT letters has to be daunting. I have no doubt that Disney IS gauging public reaction. And I’m sure a lot of what they’re getting right now is tons of spam for a few isolated groups like this.
So why not take two minutes out of your day to encourage Disney to continue to make strides towards equality? So called “Family” organizations are trying to make their voices so loud that it seems like they have the majority view, but if every person who sees this reblogs it and sends a quick e-mail with a few nice words, we would easily outnumber them.
So lets do it. Step away from your dashboard for just one moment to help Disney make one more step towards LGBT inclusiveness.
Kindergarten: Stupid. Oh gosh don’t tell anyone I said that. Elementary school: What the heck. Middle School: Damn it this is freaking dumb as hell High school: what the fuck did you just say you little fucking shitbitchcuntfuck I will beat the dicks out of your ass

So a friend of ours made portals out of mirrors and tube lights and set them up so they reflect each other infinitely. But, the coolest thing about it is he actually programmed the Portal gun to turn the lights on.
