Godzilla - Our best looks so far

Honestly I have no idea how the film could possibly end good, what the hell can even stop this thing?

Because Godzilla’s the good guy!

SO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE

That tailsweep in the first gif is that pivotal OHSHIT moment.  

I cannot wait for this film’s release <3!

Hi guys, I really need your help. This instagram user has been stealing and reposting artwork without permission. I’ve tried contacting them - before I’d ever been aware of their account they had blocked me, presumably because they saw I post my own art on my instagram and knew I wouldn’t want others doing it. So I set up another account today, messaged them and they deleted my comment without responding and temporarily made their account private.
A friend of mine messaged them about her art, and they basically said “You’re posting it online, this means anyone can do anything they want with it.” They then blocked her and posted her picture yet again in screenshot format, tagging her in a comment so that she’d see it but be unable to respond.
They know what they’re doing is wrong, and without your help they’re going to continue doing it. What’s worse is that there are people defending the thief when I speak up.
If you have an instagram account, can you leave a comment or even better, report them? Their copyright report system is so complicated so I understand if you don’t want to navigate all those pages, but even reporting as a scam/spam is as simple as a click and it’ll hopefully draw instagram’s attention to the matter.
I’d be so grateful for a signal boost, guys. I really appreciate you even reading this. It’s so disheartening as an artist to just watch this happen.

See that bolded section?
Like, I cannot believe how brazen this user is, they’re deliberately antagonising the artists they’re stealing from.
It’s sickening.

Reporting just for copyright theft/spam ensures that this user is free to do it again to somebody else later on down the track.  Her reasoning (the bolded part) has dug her a grave already, so how does one go about nailing the coffin shut and filling in the dirt?DMCA is your friend.  There&#8217;s also the fast easy email directly to Instagram: ip@instagram.com - however, do make note if you send a direct email, you&#8217;ll need to provide ALL links to the original works, with dates and times of submission (preferably still hosted online - this is the digital signature the IP office is going to be relying on for comparison reasons).  In the interim, get yourself a good IP lawyer, and prepare yourself for the inevitability of challenging/cease and desisting this silly little girl that&#8217;s decided you&#8217;re her target.  Don&#8217;t just think they&#8217;ll roll over and take it at the face value.  They won&#8217;t.  Repeat offenders -never- let go of a target.  They&#8217;ll get their friends involved, cite online bullying and all the rest of that garbage, and make themselves look like &#8220;the victim&#8221;.  Don&#8217;t give them that rope or that opportunity and don&#8217;t for the life of you EVER &#8220;feel sorry for them&#8221;.  They made this choice on their own.  You&#8217;re protecting what&#8217;s rightfully yours, not protecting the thief who thought she could get away with it with zero consequences,The world doesn&#8217;t work that way.  Remind her of that.  Also, if you can track down her parents, sending a copy of the C&amp;D/IP theft notice to them is also considered standard practice; oftentimes the parents don&#8217;t want a court battle (surprise, surprise!), and will take matters into their own hands regarding their spawn.  If I sound vindictive, I probably am to this point.  I can understand your pain at having your work stolen.  I&#8217;ve sent a few C&amp;D&#8217;s in my time, all of which ended relatively peacefully, barring one which only ended a few months ago (finally).  In any case, I wish you a great deal of luck, darlin&#8217;.  Hopefully you get this shit settled once and for all &lt;3

There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

Artist’s block creates these same symptoms and magnifies them into monster-like proportions.

It differs from person to person, but mine’s right up there with Godzilla :(

Wait no I’m reblogging this again because LOOK. LOOK AND SEE WHAT FANDOM DOES. LOOK AND SEE THE KIND OF HOPE WE CAN CAUSE. THE SMILES WE CAN PUT ON PEOPLES FACES.

SO THE NEXT TIME YOU TELL SOMEONE IN COSPLAY THAT THEY NEED TO “GROW UP” OR SCOFF AND ROLL YOUR EYES AT ADULTS WHO ARE ACTIVE IN FANDOM JUST REMEMBER THAT WE’RE THE ONES OUT THERE CREATING/DISTRIBUTING FUN FAN CONTENT FOR PEOPLE AND PUTTING SMILES ON PEOPLES FACES BY HELPING THEM REALIZE THEIR DREAMS AND YOU’RE JUST AN ASSHOLE SHITTING ON OTHER PEOPLE’S HAPPINESS.

I surprisingly see this a lot, especially in fandoms.  I figured I’d make an official list of rules.  We wouldn’t want any dis-respecting going on. 

This has sufficiently rustled my jimmies.

I have encountered all of these people.

I have encountered ALL of these people.  On a daily basis.  Some I react badly to (like stealing and selling my work - fuck off, you don’t pull that shit!), others I roll my eyes and move on.  

The fandom I am in is small as hell…and still this shit happens.  It’s unbelievable how many people have this detrimental part of themselves and constantly force it upon both the fanartists and commission artists.  

I have openly had my commissioned art and fanart stolen, manipulated, submitted to an ART COLLEGE (to which he got INTO!) and later sold by a 16yo who quoted #10 to me.  Didn’t stop my DMCA report and C&D sent straight to the Dean of his new college and his parental units, who were as I recall “completely mortified” that their son had lied his way into a high-end art college using my work.  And it didn’t do anything for his later choices of universities in his state four years later, as now I have since learned hard labour is all he can afford to do as no college will take his lying, thieving ass.  

Did I ruin his life by reporting him for theft of my intellectual property?  No.  He brought that shit on himself. I defend my rights as an artist, I don’t take kindly to assholes who don’t respect others.

 And as for #6…well, I don’t draw porn.  So naturally, in some people’s terms I’m an unmarried, frigid cunt with an aversion to sex and have absolutely every kink known to mankind.  Seriously though, my husband knows I’m a kinky senorita and just because I don’t draw it doesn’t mean I don’t look at it.  Everyone has that secret stash of porn in their lives, people have fantasies.  I choose not to make mine public knowledge.  Respect…do you have it?


Reblogging this.  Forever.

He can an absolute bastard when it comes to some adults in his shows (and some of those “adults” really need putting in their place - he does it with such conviction some of us can only wish to have those iron balls of his)…but put him in a room with kids and he’s an absolute softie.
