Haa. HAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Yeah, they would think that, wouldn’t they.
We should have a contest called “draw the ninjkabat’s face” where people all send in what they imagine my face looks like and then we’ll just award 1st prize to the first person to send a picture of me in my mask.
i always get shit when i talk about this but the reason i dont tag tw is bc
a) the term ‘trigger’ is meant to refer 2 those with PTSD those w severe anxiety and/or survivors of various forms of abuse it indicates an extreme reaction 2 certain stimulus like a panic attack/flashback/blackout caused by ur brain being unable to handle the resurgence of something horrific that happened to u
b) with that being said, i dont post triggering content. i havent talked about serious triggering shit on this blog for a long time in fact i think the last time i tagged smth was when i reblogged this youtube video about domestic abuse probs like 6 months ago nowadays i just reblog pretty pictures and make fun of anons
b) i get a thousand messages everyday from ppl suggesting i should tag shit like ‘spiders, ‘blood’, ‘feet’, ‘ghosts’, etc and it seriously pisses me off that u guys really believe ‘triggering’ equals ‘it makes me uncomfortable’ im not here to make tumblr a better place for u im not even getting paid man it’s ur responsibility to take care of yourself when it comes to these random ass ‘triggers’ if u cant see a gif of a ghost on ur dash you shouldn’t be online at all
d) in fact, ive come to the conclusion that demanding one of these lame ass trigger warnings it’s just a way 2 identify yourself as even more aware even more solicitous than the person who failed to ~adequately~ provide such a ridiculous warning. when i see ppl tagging ‘tw: spiders’ i cant help but think they are not demonstrating a sensitivity towards a topic but rather they just wanna be ‘seen’ doing so 2 demand that others ‘ought’ to do the same to validate one’s politics. this whole ’trigger’ business is less about protecting ppl from potentially re-traumatizing events and more 2 do with flagging up your right-on credentials even if it means silencing those who have actually gone through actual traumatizing events.
Hey, just fyi: it’s cool that people are interested in Punk Rock Holocaust 2, but the band kinda doesn’t like to bring it up. I mean, it’s cool to know about it and stuff, but it just kinda feels like a bad choice to spread around something that they’re trying to keep on the down-low. They really just don’t like talking about it.
So, I was messing around because I saw a few “make GLaDOS voice” videos that basically just used a regular text-to-speech generator with a few effects. But part of the magic of GLaDOS’ voice was the fact that it had a real human voice behind it. True, Ellen McLain listened to the text-to-speech to get some of the intonation of a computer, but she was able to add just that extra level of human emotion behind the metallic overtones that made the character such a hit.
So, as I said, I was messing around and did this as a little test. I don’t think it’s too bad for a 5 minute test. I wish I knew if anyone was looking for a voice like this in a creation, because it was fun to do (and I guess because I still hold to the lame hope that I might have a voice acting career despite not having time because of my real career).
The news is doubled with the news that the FBI is more clearly going to oversee the investigation into the shooting of Chris Brown. All of this points to the people in charge recognizing that what the Ferguson police did last night was wrong, and I’m sure that everyone’s hard work to get live footage out there and spread across social media played an active part in that.
If you and I are buds, because then you probably have the means to talk to me, and you’re feeling down I’m always here to at least listen. Even if I have nothing to say, I’ve done this before and I’ll do it again. I know what it’s like to not have anyone hear you out and no one should have to feel that way. It blows. But I’m a stupidly loyal friend.
