Friendly reminder that Magical Pokemon Journey had a chapter about the journey of a senile Quagsire to find the Charmander he’d been friends with in his youth, only to find her grave…and then he promptly forgot all about it and once again tried to find her.
Toothless’ scars and how he got them
((Oh……that makes sense!))
Finally someone else realizes this
The consistency with which they do this in the movie is just amazing, too. I really appreciate that they kept this nuanced realism, and they didn’t make a big deal of it either. It’s just there, as a consequence of what Hiccup did, quietly in the background. Realism and deftness. Perfection. Marks of what Hiccup did to Toothless, but of what Toothless forgave him for too.
Also, if you look closely at those bola ropes, they’re stained with blood.
YOU GO DREAMWORKS
Woah hey so everyone’s freaking out about the whole Yahoo deal so I was like “okay I’m gonna go look this thing up then!” and look what I found!!
“… let it continue to operate as an independent business.”
In other words: Calm down people, Yahoo’s not gonna mess up your precious fandom blogging experience
“One tricky question that Mayer will have to face up to: if it completes the acquisition, what should it do about all the porn? It’s an open secret that a significant proportion of Tumblr blogs are “not safe for work” viewing. But cleaning out the porn might not be popular with users.
The big fear though is that Tumblr will turn out to be an updated version of Geocities. When Yahoo bought that in January 1999, it was the third most-visited site on the internet, because of its collection of “communities” where people could create their own sites. Though it became famous for users’ garish choice of page colours and blinking “Under Construction” logos, Geocities was also a resource many loved. But the company arguably never got back the $3.57bn it paid - entirely in stock, at $36 per share; today the share price is around $27.
In 2009, Geocities was shut down, and the entire site simply wiped from the internet. For Mayer and Karp, and millions of Tumblr users, the hope must be that history won’t repeat itself.” (From Source Above)
No matter how much you think there won’t be ads if it is bought- It will happen to an extent. No matter how much we wish for it not to change, it will if it is bought. Might even be censored to an extent. Plus over time, the things we despise most, advertisement on our blogs an such will more than likely happen. They probably wouldn’t be there at first, not all changes happen right away, but are a gradual process- It would slowly become what Facebook is now.
Then there’s the heightened risk of being abandoned and or shut down- Yeah, that article does nothing to rest any fears.
FACTS ABOUT THINGS:
- TUMBLR WAS GETTING TOO EXPENSIVE. THEIR OPTIONS WERE TO EITHER SELL IT OR SHUT IT DOWN.
- YAHOO SAYS THEY’RE GOING TO LET IT RUN AS AN INDEPENDENT BUSINESS. IN THEORY, NOTHING WILL CHANGE EXCEPT FOR WHO’S LEGALLY OWNING IT.
- NOW EVERYONE CALM DOWN.
