The Random Snarfle

Hi, I'm Sarah. I post mostly Tales of the Abyss stuff. And gay stuff. And gay Tales of the Abyss stuff. I also draw stuff.
Awesome.
Let's do this.

Two years ago, my friend Kendra planned a camping weekend for her bachelorette party. As we were driving through Sequim*, we saw a street called, of all things, “Kitchen-Dick Rd.” We parked and jumped out to take a picture, and as we did a car driving by slowed down. When the driver leaned out, we expected her to yell as us or tell us to grow the hell up; instead, she informed us that if we drove just a little farther, we’d find the corner of Kitchen-Dick and Woodcock.
Good samaritans do exist.
*For non-Washingtonians, that’s pronounced “skwim.”

Omg I missed out! Next trip to Sequim!

"WARNING" ON TUMBLR USER IAMACOYFISH'S CHARMS

magmaaxis:

Cut because it’s nonsense.

I don’t usually reblog this kind of stuff, but this made me literally angry over all the misinformation and clear self importance the original poster is filled with.

First of all, the style used by the Tales of Friends charms is not unique to a single company. In fact, most series out there have charms made in a similar style available at some point or another. It’s not as though that style of drawing chibis is copyrighted.

Also, the pictures are clearly not traced, and the poses are very different.

How would this be any different from a fanartist selling prints of their work that just so happens to emulate the canon art style? Or that’s a redraw of a famous scene in the series?

And for the record, YES TECHNICALLY SELLING FAN ART IS ILLEGAL. It is not a gray area. Companies knowingly look the other way and allow artists to use the parody law because they know encouraging fans is better for them in the long run. If the work was truly parody, you would have to be referencing the work or censoring/changing names (which I have seen Japanese doujin artists do for explicit doujin when selling it online, which may not always have the same support from the companies for obvious reasons).

tl;dr this is not something worthy of some mass tumblr crusade against a single user. The products aren’t the same. Acrylic is not rubber. They are not traced. They are not taking away from the sale of rubber straps (which are way more than $10 if you try and find them now, wow, Luke can sell for over $20 at conventions and I saw him for around that price in a resell shop in Japan as well). The artist even admitted to using the same style from the start! Didn’t she originally only make them for herself? And then open sales when people expressed interest? On tumblr?

Come on, fandom.

Tales of the Abyss/Text Post Meme - 3/??

This just happened in Seattle. A group of nonviolent protestors in support of Palestine were being harassed by a WHITE MAN, this fucking mall cop comes out and maces and detains a black man WITH NO AFFILIATION TOWARDS EITHER GROUP. RAYMOND WILFORD, AN INNOCENT BLACK MAN JUST WALKING INTO THE WESTLAKE MALL. The protestors are actively telling the mall cop that he MACED THE WRONG GUY, that the black man did nothing wrong, and he still handcuffs him and DENIES him water to flush out his eyes being offered by the protestors. I’m so disgusted. I have been to this area and mall many times in my life and I no longer feel safe going. I hope to god he presses charges and that this scum sucking shitstain loses his job. I’m so scared right now. I’m so fucking scared. Source here, but let the video speak for itself. 

You can find frame by frame photos of the incident here

It starts out with this guy harassing the the pro-Palestinians 

mall cop comes in 

Ignores hostile, shirtless white guy to spray Wilford

Denies him water for his eyes

I’m honestly so disgusted this is going on in my city

I’m in Seattle and been to this mall and this is disgusting

Holy shit I recognize that mall cop.

I was in Westlake once and I saw him follow a black man into the bathroom and started telling him he had to leave because he was loitering.

In a mall.

In a food court.

Surrounded by people and tourists doing the exact same thing he was doing.

I tried to call the mall cop’s attention to get him away, but when the man gave up and decided to just leave, Mister Uniform-induced-ego-trip decided he needed to follow him out to make sure he left.

How the fuck this guy hasn’t been fired yet, I’ll never know.

why does every single fucking person in the orginization xiii have an x in their name

Because Xemnas is a dA user who thinks recoloring people who existed before, and putting “x” in the name, is cool.

BOND is a tiny touch module. It can be a pendant or a bracelet but it comes in pairs. You keep one and you give one to a friend. When you touch it, your friend feels it. No matter where they are on the planet. We don’t do tweets, we do tickles.

we need this

gonna put it on my dick

THAT IS NOT THE INTENDED USE SIR

This is actually so cool because some people wear bracelets and necklaces and things as comfort items. I used to wear a necklace from my grandma to remind me of her and I would touch the pendant on it when I was feeling down or stressed. So imagine (if she were still alive), every time I did that she would know I was thinking of her, drawing strength from her.
And then imagine poking it and the other person feels it and pokes back and you end up in a real life facebook poke war.

I would send messages in morse code

magine you and your best friend have one. When the friend dies, he/she is buried with the bracelet. A couple weeks later, you feel someone touch your wrist.

Well this escalated from cool tech to perverted hilarity to something heartfelt then finally something out a creepypasta

Behold: the internet summed up in a single post.

"Lloyd failed at making Sandwich…"

The bread is supposed to go on the outside?! You need two slices of bread?! What is this? How can a game decide whether or not the sandwich is a failure?! Everyone’s sandwiches are equal, no matter how ugly or tasteless they are! Dammit, are you saying this isn’t even a sandwich! You’re saying this sandwich is worse than Raine’s?!

*destroys the failure*

…But now what am I supposed to eat…I’m hungry.
