Citizen - The Night I Drove Alone
Hello tumblr, are you warm and snuggly? Well, I am.
Anyways, if any of you were wondering of my major absence of reblogging “out-of- character” posts, I have been catching up on life- homework, friends, art, and other ordeals. Now that I am quite caught on everything, it is nice to be here in community, again- mainly the RP community. However that does not mean I am excluding the other parts of tumblr from this statement. I am merely saying this is where I spend most of my time, on tumblr.
Originally this account was to be RP/Ask/Anime-Fandom/Music/Art/Grunge mixture, which may have been held in a manner that is so disorganized, to the point that this account can be considered a personal blog; which it has turned out to be. The blog was used to comfort my stress about school, but I believe it has made my procastination even worse, then before. Indeed, I used to RP with a quite few people- those were good times.
Now, I ask myself, what is the point of this blog? If I did not keep the original intent of this blog, like I should have, then what do you do with something that has been twisted to my own needed comforts?
Well, the truth is that I will not give this blog up. I have spend too much time to let my blog to go to waste. Instead, I will delete the majority of my posts, and then start anew, while I keep the original intent of my blog- To roleplay a muse who recieves a lot (or I hope she recieves a lot) of questions from strangers that know her interest in music, anime, art, and grunge; without her telling these strangers about her interests.
This will be fun.
Since summer is around the corner, I have a few plans that I want to do- this account is apart of one of my many summer plans.
Anyways, I thought I just tell anybody who still follows me, regardless of what I do- So thank you. I really do appreicate the fact that you deal with my disorganize-ness. For now, I will only delete posts until I got everything under my control.
Until next time,
From the place that brought you the Mary Sue Litmus Test.
this has been a PSA
Jesus fucking christ
This is exactly the kind of shit I was talking about. I had a rant some weeks ago about people ‘hiding’ comments in their tags, and the response was mainly two things: Either people did it just because they preferred it that way for whatever reason (which in the end is really their business), or this, which is something that until I made that post I had no idea about. I didn’t know this shit was a thing. I had no idea people actually posted shit like this, because it just seems so fucking unreal.
This is bullshit, and the person who posted this is bullshit by extension.
This is some fucked up elitist mentality that only some thoughts are “worthy” of being made. That if your response doesn’t live up to their standards then why the fuck are you posting it? Keep your mouth shut because what you have to say isn’t worth hearing! This of course is further ingrained by the use of excessive caps and emoticons in the original post suggesting that anyone who makes a response like that is a child or an idiot, because there’s no faster or lazier way to discredit the other side than to imitate them with fevered, emoticon-littered writing.
Well I say fuck that. I produce my own content (and I don’t mean compiling TV gifsets) and I want to see everything everyone has to say. Even if it’s just AAAA THIS SCARED ME or WOWOWOW THIS IS SUPER CUUUUTE WOW, seeing that kind of response means a lot to me. It means I evoked that kind of response. That’s very flattering! And for people to want to censor others because they think their thoughts aren’t important or worthwhile enough to be read, frankly, that’s disgusting. No one should be pressured into feeling like they have to shut up especially on a subject and medium like motherfucking Tumblr. It’s like telling someone “GET OFF MY POST”.
And I mean let’s think practically about this, too: It’s not like every time someone reblogs your post AND ADDS TEXT a man comes to your door and sits you down and reads it out loud off a telegram. What happens is that the little list that shows “so and so reblogged your post” has one additional line of text on it saying “AND ADDED: [COMMENT YOU DON’T THINK WAS WORTH YOUR TIME]”. I would say it takes one extra second to scroll past but the amount of time spent scrolling that additional line is so insignificant I couldn’t even measure it. Most people who address this spend way more time complaining about it than they ever would spend being inconvenienced by having to read what people thought of their post (god forbid)
So in summation this whole toxic, bullshit mentality of “Hey plebeians who have the privilege of looking at my stuff! Here’s how you are and are not allowed to respond to it!” is awful and so arrogant I almost didn’t believe it was real
If you want to sort of stash your thoughts away in tags, I can’t force you not to by any means
But you should never feel like you have to hide your thoughts because they’re not ‘good enough’.
Especially not here.
All in all Tumblr is a fun site, but people are actually DISCOURAGING others voicing their opinions and comments. DeviantART is slowly dying, and it’s pretty bad, because it’s one of the few sites left where you can communicate with words, instead of reactions gifs and Tumblr memes. I’ve seen people reblog things with their comments and anons sending messages to their ask-blogs akin to “Wow, why are you commenting everything you reblog, that is so annoying.” Why would you do that? This might be an interactive shiny picturebook to some people, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but especially artists really appreciate reblogs with comments. Those pictures you like so much COME FROM SOMEWHERE, you know. By all means, voiceless reblogs are nice too because they give you exposure, but if someone has the time to say something nice, then oh my god, don’t diss them because of that. This is a really terrible attitude to have.
I’ve considered making a reblog-blog just for original content and commenting on it, and stuff like this makes me want to do it more, just to spite people who are encouraging an internet culture where everything must be just scrolled past as fast as possible, without stopping to appreciate it.
I AM SO HAPPY, THANK YOU.
Reblogging because I’VE BEEN GRUMPYGROANING ABOUT THIS VERY THING WITH MY FRIEND FOR AGES. About how nobody seems to comment on anything anymore and just hides everything in tags, making artists have to check every single fucking reblog separately to see if there’s EVEN A TINY BIT OF FEEDBACK. Most of the time there isn’t any. IT’S REALLY RIDICULOUS AND IT BLOWS???? BECAUSE ARTISTS LIKE ME FUCKING LIVE OFF FEEDBACK. IT’S IMPORTANT TO THEM.
Even “dumb” comments like “WOW CUTE” take me and probably many others A LONG WAY.
Of course even though this may have come off sounding like that, the stuff I’m writing here isn’t to be accusatory towards people who choose not to comment. YOU ARE EXTREMELY FREE TO NOT COMMENT IF YOU DON’T WANT TO. Especially since I am also a shy butt who has trouble replying to things people write me because I never know what to reply and I become anxious as hell and bleughfb
THIS WHOLE THING IS DIRECTED AT PEOPLE WHO PURPOSEFULLY DISCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM COMMENTING. THAT’S GROSS AS HELL and i will pee in your eye if you do thatsklnvslk
ok sorry for being an asshole BUT THIS WHOLE THING HAS BEEN BUGGING ME FOREVER AND THE OP POST PISSED ME OFF CONSIDERABLY, I CAN’T LIE. Ugh.
i don’t usually reblog things but ^^^^^^^^^^^^ all of these comments
i didn’t know this kinda thing even existed, this “PSA” is super gross
and that part about foreign languages makes me so mad
jos mie haluan kirjottaa omaan blogiini suomeksi nii sithän kirjotan, ei kellään ole mitään oikeutta sanoa ettei saa koska ne ei ymmärrä, internet is not ENGLISH ONLY
It’s comments like these that change my whole opinion on stuff like this. I mean, when I first saw it, I’m all “yeah, I agree with this” but re-reading it and reading these amazing comments, it definitely changed my thinking around. Personally I leave my comments and stuff in the tags, but I think I might start commenting more on posts (if I really want to, anyway). Since every now and again, I’ll see a post and REALLY want to comment on it but I always force myself to just write it in the tags because I don’t want to look “dumb” to people. Because I make stupid jokes all the time.
I’m also on the same boat of reblogging art with a “dumb” comment, because those “dumb” comments DO take artists a long way. It’s “dumb” comments like that that have made me actually start liking my artwork again, especially when I was in a funk of “wow, all my art is shit, why do I even bother” for such a long time
