"why do fangirls always make them gay?"







Imagine being in a relationship in which you are treated like an equal, consciously and unconsciously, sexually, emotionally, socially, romantically, without being bound by gender expectations,…


do you think when fish get thrown back by fishermen, they swim around yelling about alien abductions and the other fish stop talking to them?

I can’t decide if this is parenting fail or not.


So as my spouse goes and rescues my apparently stranded parents, the kid and I are watching vids, like you do. Specifically MCU/Cap vids, because the kid’s all about Bucky. 

And I realize, holy shit: I haven’t talked to my kid about aspect ratio.

Furthermore, I don’t even know HOW to talk to my kid about aspect ratio.

She’s going to make her first vid, and the clips are going to be all weird and stretchy, and it’s going to be ALL MY FAULT.

I wouldn’t worry. Resources exist to help figure out aspect ratio, but most of us have to try and fail before we figure it out. I know I did.



#75 - You don’t have to have it all together. In fact, realizing this early in life might just help you be a hell of a lot happier, less stressed, and a much more creative being.

Having it all together and being constantly on top of things creates all sorts of expectations. It also creates this…

J: You know what makes humans different to other animals?
T: Feet.
P: No, come on, bears have feet

J: We are the only species on Earth that observe “Shark Week”. Sharks don’t even observe “Shark Week” but we do. For the same reason I can pick this pencil, tell you its name is Steve and go like this (breaks pencil) and part of you dies just a little bit on the inside because people can connect with anything. We can sympathize with a pencil, we can forgive a shark, and we can give Ben Affleck an academy award for screen writing. People can find the good in just about anything but themselves. Look at me, it’s clear to all of you that I am awesome but I could never admit that because that would make me an ass. But what I can do is see what makes Annie awesome. She’s driven. We need driven people or the lights go out and the ice cream melts. And Pierce, we need guys like Pierce, this guy has wisdom to offer… We should listen to him sometime, we wouldn’t regret it. And Shirley, Shirley has earned our respect, not as a wife, not as a mother, but as a woman. And don’t test her on that because that thing about the jukebox was way too specific to be improvised. And Troy, who cares if Troy thinks he’s all that. Maybe he is. Do you think astronauts go to the moon because they hate oxygen? No. They’re trying to impress their high schools prom king. And Abed, Abed’s a shaman. You ask him to pass the salt and he gives you a bowl of soup, because you know what? Soup is better. Abed is better. You are all better than you think you are, you are just designed not to believe it when you hear it from yourself. I want you to look at the person to your left… Sorry look at the person sitting next to you. I want you to extend to that person the same compassion that you extend for sharks, pencils, and Ben Affleck. I want you to say to that person I forgive you.

Everyone but Pierce: I forgive you.
P: Little twerp…
J: Pierce I’d like you to say “I forgive you”
P: [Mumbling] I forgive you.
J: You’ve just stopped being a study group. You’ve now become something unstoppable. I hereby pronounce you a COMMUNITY.

Guy: What do girls do at sleepovers?
Me: Pass the Bechdel test.
Vidders, your help is needed



Fan Video & Multimedia is once again working with our Legal Committee as well as the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to petition for a DMCA exemption granting vidders, AMV makers, and other creators of noncommercial remix video the right to break copy protection on media files. In 2010, we won the right to rip DVDs; in 2012, we got that exemption renewed and expanded to include digital downloads (iTunes, Amazon Unbox, etc.). In 2015, we’ll be pushing to add Blu-Ray. Right now we’re in the data-gathering stage: asking fan video makers to talk with us about how they get Blu-Ray source and why Blu-Ray is important.


The exemption will expire if not renewed!  The big copyright industries fought really hard last time, and renewal is not a foregone conclusion, even though we’re still right.  As always we need (1) examples of vids that make a critical commentary on the original source, particularly examples from the past 3 years, as well as (2) vids that need very high quality source, in technical terms, to do what they do.  With Blu-Ray, we need (3) explanations of how getting Blu-Ray source can be done, so we can educate the Copyright Office, and (4) explanations for why Blu-Ray source is important.  

If you can help with any of these, please let legal@transformativeworks.org know!

OK, reblogging, because the new rulemaking was just announced.  They’re changing the process this time, and it’s really hard to tell what the effects will be, but we need to get our ducks in a row.  Vidders: If you can identify vids using Blu-Ray source that isn’t available on anything but Blu-Ray, or vids that needed really high quality source to make your point, or (forgot this one before) vids that reacted quickly to a TV show (so you needed something like Amazon Unbox or iTunes to get the footage, in order to make the vid before the DVD/Blu-Ray release) please let legal@transformativeworks.org know!
