Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.

If you drive for 45 minutes in Australia you aren’t a city over, you’re just 45 minutes away from the city.

If you drive for 45 minutes in Australia you may not even leave the cattle station.


If you drive for 45 minutes in Canada you may not even leave your driveway.

If I drive 45 minutes in the us I’m just at another mcdonalds

If I drive for 45 minutes in Northern Ireland I’m 10 minutes into the sea.

Miyazaki: The Problem With The Anime Industry Is It’s Full of People Who Actually Buy the Content They Consume

 #I’M REALLY TORN ABOUT THIS #I LOVE MIYAZAKI AND THE THINGS HE MAKES #BUT NOW I FEEL COMPLETELY INSULTED BY A PERSON I LOOK UP TO #ALSO HE IMPLIES MASTURBATION IS AS BAD AS WAR????? #WTF MIYAZAKI WHO ARE YOU #I HATE SEEING THE PERSON BEHIND THE CREATIONS SOMETIMES #THIS IS HORRIBLE AND I WISH I DIDN’T SEE IT #IT’S JUST LIKE HORRIBLESUBS AND THE SHITTY THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT THE FANS WHO WATCH THE SHOWS THEY FANSUB #JFC FUCK THE WORLD 
Methinks Miyazaki has spent a little too much time going bar hopping with Hideki Anno

He’s the new Alan Moore. Was only a matter of time.

IN WHICH I WRITE A VERY LONG POST ABOUT WHY MIYAZAKI IS NOT WRONG AND I APPARENTLY CAN’T INSERT A READ MORE BREAK SO SUCK IT IN THAT REGARD TOO, I GUESS
tl;dr:
If you unironically call yourself an otaku, you’re lumping yourself in with some of the least-respected members of society in Japan, and you shouldn’t be surprised/outraged when a well-respected member of Japanese society looks down on you.
The things otaku like are off-putting, and because the anime industry makes most of their money from otaku, the anime industry in general is off-putting.
The anime industry should probably be restructured so that otaku have less power to decide what gets animated, otherwise the anime industry will collapse because NOBODY LIKES IT.
Gimme your lunch money, nerds.
Uh, he never implied masturbation is as bad as war. He’s being a cranky old man, as cranky old men are wont to do. The author of the article just listed those things as additional things Miyazaki doesn’t like.
And something you people really, really, REALLY need to understand is that "otaku" is not a term of endearment in Japan the way “nerd” has become so in the West. If I were to speculate, I’d say it has a lot to do with cultural values - here, we place a lot of value and pride in our individual identities, but that just is not the case in Japan. They, and the East Asian countries in general, place a lot of value in working to improve the collective. Being an otaku implies a lot of the things you’d think being the classical “nerd” implies - living in your mother’s basement, spending all your time watching anime/slacking off, and being a general drain on society. While that’s not “accepted” in the West per se, it is not directly contradictory to every cultural value we have. We’re just expressing our identities when we do those kinds of things. In Japan, they are the antithesis of a praiseworthy member of society.When the anime industry is, in Miyazaki’s mind, full of these kinds of people, who seal themselves off in insular groups and jack off to 2D waifus all day in between drawing said 2D waifus, that is a real problem.
Frankly, when I look at the entire catalogue of anime titles released over the past 5 years, I see what he means. Who the fuck is going to buy OreImo except lolicon siscon hentai otaku? Who the fuck is going to buy K-On! except ronery NEETs? I LOVE the Monogatari Series - but who the fuck is going to buy that shit except social rejects? 
Real-life people do not act like the people in those shows.Real people do not say to their friends/rivals in love “hey, let’s take a shower together while I fondle your tits.” Real sisters do not fall in love with their oniichan desu~s after many sessions of counseling. I love the tsundere archetype, but a real-life tsundere is someone that nobody wants to be around because they treat other people like shit.
I probably should devote an entire paragraph to lolis. (Most) people do not sexualize little girls, and in fact find the sexualization of of little girls to be repulsive. Why, then, are there so many lolis in anime? Because lolis represent a lot of things that a lot of men find desirable in women - innocence, petite bodies, cuteness in general. But for whatever reason, it has become not only okay, but the norm for anime to have prepubescent girls in compromising sexual positions. If you like flat chests - fine. If you like inexperienced girls - fine. If you like cute things - fine. Mashing all of those things together on a 12-year-old and slapping a bikini on her to appeal to otaku with those preferences? Most people will say that is fucked up. 
Fanservice is off-putting to a lot of people. Incest is off-putting to a lot of people. Lolis are off-putting to a lot of people. Unbelievable characters and character interactions are off-putting to a lot of people. But those things are things that self-proclaimed otaku audiences embrace, so that’s what the Miyazaki-proclaimed otaku in the industry draw. Because animation studios make so little money off of anything but DVD and merchandise sales, and otaku are the only people who buy that stuff, the anime industry of late has become inbred and stale at best, and offensive and pedophilic at worst.
Miyazaki is well-loved, both in the West and in the East. But he is not well-loved because his works are made for otaku. I’ve never seen anything he’s made, but the sense I get is that he’s loved in the mainstream because he tells stories that resonate with a hell of a lot of people. The problem he sees in the anime industry is that their works tend only to resonate with otaku, and otaku are not acceptable members of society in Japan. From what I’ve seen of what’s been released and been popular the past few years, I cannot blame him for thinking the way he does.

Stemming off from the previous persons argument. I feel as though this is a very real and quite a noticeable problem that Miyazaki is commenting on. Otakus making anime for otakus.
It’s one thing if you want to make media for people like yourself. But a lot of anime has really become just that. And, like this person before me said, it’s really off-putting and often gross stuff like 12 year old love interests.
And it’s starting to become painfully obvious. I love anime, but I’m beginning to have a really hard time finding stuff that doesn’t make me uncomfortably. Stuff that has a substantial story and good characters, without panty shots or large unruly breasts, or have unsettling things like ‘sexy 12 year olds’.
All I want is anime that entertains me and touches me on an emotional level without making me want to puke to some extent. But who cares about that? And even worse, who cares about the ethical problems and social ramifications of otaku kinks like ‘sexy 12 year olds’ being in mass media? CERTAINLY NOT THE PEOPLE MAKING THE ANIME!

When he says Otaku, it’s like the equivalent of the hardcore Bronies that we have here, taking an innocent series and changing it to their liking because they have a “power” over it. Otaku is meant to be seen as a negative title, not how it’s been changed to lately where people use it to describe simple nerds.
tl;dr I agree with Miyazaki

To an extent I agree with what he has to say. When I first got into anime, I had a real hard time trying to explain to people “no I don’t watch the porn stuff, I watch the shows with a story” And some people didn’t believe me because all they have seen of anime is either Hentai, or the Harem Genre. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that genre. But the problem is there is FAR TO MUCH OF IT. Yes I prefer my more serious anime. Such as Attack on Titan. But one of the reasons why I think it got so popular is because it doesn’t have any fanservice and it takes it self seriously. Its a show I am open to talk about and not ashamed of telling people about it. On the other hand I LOVE the series Soul Eater but I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who was new to anime. Because the first 4 or so episodes have cleavage shots of most of the girls in the show. But when you get past that it was a great story and it took it self seriously and didn’t bother with the unnecessary fanservice.  But the first few episodes are really important and people may be interested in the concept but will be turned away from the fanservice.
On the other hand I enjoy anime because its different, Its weird and that’s what I love about it. If I don’t get my generic characters, super power ups or cheesy love stories. I start craving it! Its something that I liked when I first started out. And something that I will always like to an extent. I feel like so many anime just got turned into shows that the “Otaku’s” wanted. Like sword art online. For me, I didn’t enjoy the series to much. And the main reason is, is because they made it look so interesting at the beginning, It had a great concept, good animation and What it looked to me. A great story. BUT. For me, after the first few episodes, They turned everything extremely generic. Asuna: She seemed so badass and independent in the first few episodes. After that, she was a useless Tsundere who couldn’t do anything without Kirito Helping her. But enough about me ranting about SAO. Because I could rant about that show for ages.
Attack on titan has gotten the same amount of hype as One piece has for 15 years. And it doesn’t even have a dub yet, or been shown on Western TV(not to my knowledge anyway) And people love it because its a good story without with fanservice. Studio’s are to too scared to find serious stories that may not do so well but will always take on what most of the audience want. And that makes me really sad. Because I’ve read plenty of manga’s that are serious and I could see being a well hyped live action movie.But it hasn’t been adapted into anime series because they don’t want to take that chance. Because at the end of the day. They need to make money and that’s the best thing that sells. Which needs to change. If we start hyping the more serious anime/manga that maybe me appealing to someone who has never watched anime we could possibly get a few more good series that more people will enjoy.

KIDS, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. ONLY ATTEMPT WITH A TRAINED CHEMIST OR A SCIENTIFIC PROFESSIONAL AND PLENTY OF BALLS.

At Chemistry Club of Phillps Exeter Academy, we fire bend. No big deal.

Here are the procedures:

  1. Mix an ample amount of soap and water.
  2. Make methane bubbles with this mixture.
  3. Take off anything on your arms (including watches, bracelets, long sleeves, etc.)
  4. Soak your hands completely
  5. Scoop up bubbles.
  6. place hand vertically over but slightly to the side of a lighted candle, so the bubble overhanging from your palm is directly over the candle.
  7. Do not panic.
  8. The fire will form upwards so do not face your palm downwards. Always face it upwards.
  9. WATCH IT BURN

raaaaaaaaaaaaad

I’ve done this! It’s really cool to see up close :D

I showed this picture to my mom and she explained me this. “Kids today don’t watch cartoons as much, when you were little you were addicted to cartoons. Nowadays there are so many social media sites and games that kids aren’t interested in cartoons anymore. Even at your age ( I’m 17) you still watch and enjoy watching cartoons because that’s how you grew up. While your sisters aren’t that interested in them because they have their electronic devices. That’s why cartoon network went from having a variety of cartoons to watch daily, to a select few that are now aired.”

this makes me so sad

Very sad. We are the last generation with imagination.
