We in the Korra fandom could use your help. You see, our old pal,
decided to pull its best show,
off TV and move it entirely to digital.
Of course, we all still get to watch it, but that’s not what’s so upsetting.
This show is brilliant
Kick ass female leads:
Feelings like woah
A beautiful plot, amazing characters, gorgeous art and animation with all the old Avatar: The Last Airbender appeal.
So when they take a show like this off the air, they are throwing all of this hard work under the bus.
The writers, animators, creators…the entire team… clearly worked so hard on this season, and I hate seeing it reduced to this
So I was thinking…Maybe this would help.
What if a ton of people tuned in to Nick tomorrow (Friday, 7/25) at 8pm/7c and watched Korra? Turn on your tvs and watch it? Or just turn on to Nick and go do something else! Let’s get the views up through the roof and raise those ratings!
A lot of us have a part of our childhood invested in Avatar the Last Airbender, so let’s help the almighty creators by getting this spinoff the ratings and attention it deserves.
i don’t care if it’s a only a joke, please don’t make comments about how someone’s choice of field of study isn’t going to take them anywhere because it can be a great source of stress and your joke won’t help.
also, destroy the idea that we should only pursue dreams if they are likely to give you status in this capitalist piece-of-shit society.
“Last night just before 9pm, they sent us a warning over the phone that ‘We will bomb the hospital, so you need to evacuate. We insisted that we cannot leave the hospital. Our patients are, all of them, paralyzed, they’re unconscious. They’re unable to move, so we need to stay in this hospital…
“I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace.”—Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha (via quotes-shape-us)
"As the world focused on Ukraine and Gaza over the weekend, the bloodiest 48-hour period in Syria’s civil war went largely unnoticed. More than 700 Syrians were killed on Thursday and Friday, according to an NGO tracking the conflict, providing a stark reminder that a war that has raged for years shows no signs of winding down. The Shaar gas field in central Syria saw some of the heaviest fighting. It is a crucial gas supply facility for the country’s central region and among the largest in Syria. Islamic State fighters attacked the field Wednesday night — just hours after Bashar al-Assad was sworn in for a third, seven-year term as president — and seized it Thursday, killing 270 government soldiers, guards, and staff. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based NGO, at least 40 militants from the group formerly known as ISIS were killed. Over the weekend the body count grew by 100. More than 170,000 people have died since began in March 2011. And the war created an unprecedented refugee crisis displacing 2.8 million people, including many women and children. On Monday, Islamic State fighters clashed in Damascus with other anti-Assad rebels who initially embraced the group but now are trying to expel it from the city. They’ve successfully ousted the organization from sections of the capital and its outskirts but the Islamic State’s influence has recently expanded, encompassing an oil-rich area in the eastern Deir Az Zor province. The organization controls much of Syria’s east. ”
Where are the pro Assad-ers now? Where are you to tell me that each life lost was to “protect the country”, that each casualty is therefore but an obstacle to some greater power. Kos om Bashar, fuck every pro Assad-er who supports his atrocities and the atrocities committed by the Ba’ath party. If only every suspected Leftist was not already killed or detained…if only their blood could speak in an exegesis of itself. Rest in power.

the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato. sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great
“Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world’s phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again. That is why every man’s story is important, eternal, sacred; that is why every man, as long as he lives and fulfills the will of nature, is wondrous, and worthy of every consideration.”—Hermann Hesse — Demian (via ludimagister)
“And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.”—"Why Don’t the Unemployed Get Off Their Couches?" and Eight Other Critical Questions for Americans (via seriouslyamerica)
