It has come to my attention that many of you don't know how to eat hot spicy cheetos so I have decided to add another entry to my Back to bASSics series.
Please refer to the gif below as it shows exactly how to eat hot spicy cheetos. Alot of people just take it out and eat it and that's just barbaric. First we're gonna see the shape of her hand, notice how her hand has formed that claw shape, she delicately uses this "claw" to grab a single hot cheeto and lift it up, now look at this, she lifts the hot cheeto at a 90 degree angle. this allows for all that hot spicy seasoning to stay on the cheeto and as any good cheeto enthusiast would know 2% of the seasoning always fall off no matter what but by picking up the cheeto via this method she is able to preserve that 2% as it falls right back into the bag mixing in with it's delicious cheeto cousins.
Even though it might not seem like it, she's moving like how an African lion moves when it hunts, she gently but ferociously places the cheetos tongue first in her mouth. This technique is called "Cheeto à la carte" invented by the french, when the hot cheetos touches the tongue all the flavors burst into a mosaic of deliciousness as seen by her delightful expression. Also notice how her fingers never touch her lips, this prevents from the seasoning sticking to her fingers when she sends the 'claw' in the bag for another cheeto. Slowly yet moving fast, as to not soak the cheeto too much, she inserts the cheeto in her mouth, clasping her lips together as she crushes and chews enjoying the crunchy, spicy, warm, tangy, vinegary cheeto.
even though jesus doesnt exist and all religions were implemented with the interest of inferiorizing women everywhere but enjoy that boxed wine of yours 💋💋
i wanted to make and post a boston cream style yule log (maybe i still will its not like people will stop stuffing their faces) but ive been a little sick these past few days 🤒 hope everyone else is having a good time.
I started off the year by finally getting my driver's license after many years of just having a learner's.
Film enthusiast that I am, I unfortunately didn't watch as many movies in general as I usually do, but I did reach the milestone of seeing more films than ever theatrically.
Commemorating one of two of them...
I went to the amusement park, which was fun considering I hadn't been in a while. I went on many rides varying from rollercoasters, rings of fire, swing towers and anti-gravity machines, but obviously it's kinda hard to flip out your phone on those ones. I did manage to take some from the ferris wheel.
And in the funhouse.
Where talent was appreciated.
I finally had to get glasses.
I went bowling while my aunt and uncle were visiting, which I apparently suck shit at (less than 100...). They happened to be playing The Killers "All These Things That I've Done" at this alley, so I took the opportunity to sing a charming parody that goes "I can't bowl, so I'm not a bowler". Weird Al, hit me up.
I went down to the forests of Ontario, where I apparently ran a relatively high risk of being burned alive.
I had to get two wisdom teeth removed, one of which was literally sideways.
My action figure collection grew.
Especially when I went to Comic-Con, where I got to meet Jay Baruchel.
And go back to the future.
As I was driving more often, I got to see this charming pro-life ad ever more often, with its inexplicably funny-looking baby. I mean, c'mon, guys - millions of cute babies in this world and you land on this little dude?
I also got into my first ever car accident, which was particularly odd in that our vehicles literally got stuck together. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
Eventually, her husband showed up and got us unstuck. I immortalised my reaction by taking a picture as soon as I got to work. Behold, the face of "I'm about to part with some serious coin".
I also took up cooking as a hobby, learning to make various things throughout the year.
My 2018 new year's resolution? Take more pictures!
Hope you all have a happy new year
Inspired by my good sis @Kaulitz.. Made this so i can remember which sets i have and if i want to bring them back:
Set made by Luca
Set made by @Dr. Slay
Set made by @Michael.
Next for avis' made by graphics legend @Michael.
Made by legend @Régine Filange
Last couple sets credited to @Michael.
~ Diary of an Otaku ~
Finally I'm back with another Diary entry for my Otaky needs. I still have an endless list of Animes I want to watch, and also an equally long list of Manga I want to read.
Now, on the latter I was definitely procrastinating hard, because my local library doesn't have any manga to lend out, which sucks. But thankfully, I found a great online source where I can read them, so I can get started on that as well.
And definitely during this time of year, I'll have more time to devote attention to my hobbies.
I'll start with the Anime I'll be watching.
¤ Tsuki ga Kirei ¤
Kotarou Azumi and Akane Mizuno became third year students at junior high school and are classmates for the first time. These two, along with fellow classmates, Chinatsu Nishio and Takumi Hira, relate to their peers through mutual understandings and feelings. As their final year at junior high school progresses, the group overcome their challenges to mature and become aware of changes in themselves.
¤ Clione no Akari ¤
Finally! This is one I've really been looking forward to, even though it seems to be getting bad ratings, I don't really care until I've seen something for myself. And honestly, a lot of people are saying Attack on Titan is overrated, well, I never let that stop me either.
The story centers around an illness-stricken, constantly bullied orphan girl named Minori. After one rainy day, she doesn't turn up at school, having been admitted into a hospital in a distant town. Two months pass, and the girl's two school friends, Takashi and Kyōko, receive a mysterious email with no sender listed. The email reveals a summer festival taking place at a nearby town ....
¤ Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka? /
WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us? ¤
Five hundred years have passed since the humans went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious 'Beasts'. The surviving races now make their homes up on floating islands in the sky, out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts. Only a small group of young girls, the Fairies, can wield the ancient weapons needed to fend off invasions from these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber. Unable to fight any longer, Willem becomes the father that the girls never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his 'Daughter' once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the girls gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting.
¤ The Royal Tutor¤
Accepting the post of Royal Tutor at the court of the king of Grannzreich, Heine Wittgenstein is a little professor with a big job ahead! Each of the kingdom's four princes has a rather distinct personality. Does their diminutive new instructor have what it takes to lay down some learning? It's a comedy of educational proportions!
Off to the Manga I'll be trying out!
Bokura Wa Minna Kawaisou
Bokutachi wa benkyou ga dekinai
Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?
Hope to update this again soon!

As many of you might already know, via various tabloid reports that me and @Hylia's relationship has been rocky. Reports saying that we are living apart, our kids are emotional disturbed and we hate eachother. I just want to say that this is false. My love for Hylia and our three kids (Mariah, Tori and Sylk Jr.) is unending, unconditional and unadulterated. But I must also say this, my love life over the past few weeks has been a whirlwind and I want to address some rumours and set things straight, because you, my fans, deserve that. Firstly, me and @Vulnicura. are not dating. I know about the reports of us being spotted together at multiple events and places. Vulni has been very close to me during these tumultuous times so I spend alot of time with him seeking emotional comfort, he has been the bestest friend I've ever had.
Next, yes @Javi did re-enter my life once again. He arrived at my doorstep come December 1st, boombox in hand playing my fav Christmas song (Christmas Time Is In The Air Again) with a ring in another. I am saddened to say that I had to reject him for the 8th time. Saddened because he's a great guy and when we make love there's so much fire and passion, however I just feel like we're both not ready for eachother yet.
After Javi left, I started getting text messages from a stranger number, I was annoyed to the point where I called the number to tell them off and to my surprise it was none other than my ex @Aidan. begging to take him back. I must say I was a bit shocked, how is it that flames reignite in the December snow? Aidan was hysterical, threatening to break his Fever vinyl if I didn't change my relationship status on facebook to 'in a relationship with Aidan'. I must admit, I was fearful but thankfully I was able to pretend THE line was cutting out and hung up. Then i blocked hiS number. It broke my heart, but I will never forget how he broke mine first.
Next morning, I wake up and smell something, this is a smell I've smelt before yes, the woody scent of the forest with hints of sweet notes like honey, Winnie the pooh was here. I had forgotten to change my locks and I knew he had a key. He went by @NicoleRichiePurpleHair.jpg now. "Hey, babe! Just making you breakfast" he said as I entered the kitchen. He looked so different yet so familiar, I could not remember why we broke up. I wanted to call security but I decided to wait until I tried some of his pancakes, he made the best pancakes. I didn't say a word, sat down, he came around me and plopped a plate of hot cakes in my view, fluffy and shiny stacked on top of eachother, leaning like the tower of pisa. Being forced into submission by droplets of thick honey and a slab of butter oozing from the sides. I picked up my spork, and went in. Before the sliced cake touched my lips, I had relived our entire relationship in a flash of seconds. I remember now, I broke up with him because he's a fattie. A bear's appetite is far greater than a humans. Determined to stay skinny, I dropped the plate of cakes in the garbage and phoned security.
to be continued...
Bob's Burgers Christmas Episodes Ranked!
Since I'm obsessed with anything Bob's Burgers, and Christmas is my favorite time of the year (and just around the corner) this was bound to happen.
Allow me to rank the Christmas episodes from least favorite to absolute favorite!
Also, helps me get even more pumped about the fact that this upcoming weekend, we'll be getting an hour long Christmas Special from the Belchers!
I can barely conceal my joy!
Sadly the first two seasons didn't have a Christmas episode. But starting season 3, annual Christmas episodes it is!
Here we go!
Season 5 / Episode 6 "Father of the Bob"
Okay, it's not like I don't like this episode at all, but one of them has to be placed lowest, right?
Reasons to love this episode;
- We take a trip down memory lane and get some more background information on why Bob and his dad have such a troubling relationship
- Seeing the Belcher kids searching for a perfect Christmas present for Bob in the basement is amusing to say the least.
- Also Bob and his dad line dancing ... need I say more?
Season 3 / Episode 9: "God rest ye merry Gentle-Mannequins"
This one is funny, just as much as... disturbing? There are still some amazing comical highlights though.
Definitely worth the watch to get into the festive mood!
- What's on the kids' wishlist this year is also amazing
- Linda stumping her feet while yelling at Bob; priceless!
- Was he really a mannequin or what?
Season 7 / Episode 7: "The Last Gingerbread House on the Left"
Linda and her Christmas caroling, Bob in his building gingerbread houses competition,
one of the sweetest polar bear babies being born.. It doesn't get more festive than that!
- Mr. Fischoeder and Felix are making an appearance!
- Them thinking that guy murdered a bunch of people...
- And all the cuddling with the cute polar bear!
Season 6 / Episode 5:" Nice-Capades"
This is an amazing runner-up for #1! The Blecher kids go full out to convince Mall Santa that they've been good this year.
They make a song and costumes and everything, and of course embellish their stories a tad to perform the perfect nice capades.
- Felix in ice-skating costume, eat your heart out, Yuri!
- Mr. Fischoeder singing Bourbon about a thousand times..
- Louise asking for her own pet shark
A definite must watch for the season!
Season 4 / Episode 8; "Christmas in the Car"
This is my absolute favorite Christmas Episode!
There are too many good things to mention, so allow me to bombard you with gifs of some of the greatest moments from this masterpiece:
To start off with Tina accusing Bob he has this girl walk, and apparently he goes like;
Linda putting up the Christmas tree waaay too early.. something like, this;
Onto this amazing priceless dialogue!
And with that, I rest my case! A Merry Christmas to all of you lovely people that celebrate! <3
I might also be doing this in the future for their Thanksgiving, Halloween and Valentine Days episode.
Have you ever felt like something's wrong with you? As if you're not good enough? Do you ever think that other people are better than you because there are things that they can do that you can't? I feel like that everyday. I feel that I don't really have the same mind set as anyone else, like I can't do anything right. I'm not smart, I probably don't know how to solve problems by myself. It's like I'm unable to do anything. But I'm not in a wheel chair so I can walk, I have hands and arms to reach and grab things. But that's not the issue, the issue is my mentality. I wish I was like other people who knows how to work hard and think straight. I don't know why God even punished me like this I don't like the way I am, I never asked to be born, why do I feel like I don't belong or that I'm a waste of space? Sometimes I'll have nights where I cry, feeling sorry for myself and that I'm not good enough for anyone or that I'm too much. I don't know why I have people who care about me (friends, family etc) when all I do is cause trouble or push them away. I was trying to escape from home, not caring if I die in the streets because all I wanted to do was not exist anymore. I would always have thoughts of self-harming because all I wanted to do was feel pain, and the more I cause harm to myself maybe eventually I'll lay on the floor not being able to feel pain anymore. I don't want anyone to feel bad for me because I'm no one to have a pity party. To be honest, I'm not super open about how I feel so telling you guys these things really help me. Thank you for reading I know I don't come often because of so many things I'm dealing with but as always stay in tune with my blogs you guys know I enjoy you reading them and giving them likes. You guys are my little pumpkin patch and i love you!
these cunts who take the religion of Islam which is supossed to be about equality and peace then twist it and interpret it into whatever suits their motives and goals using it to promote fear and scare everyone
making the phrase “Allahu Akbar” god is great , a word of fear when it’s not supossed to be
I’m sick of ignorant fucks not even spending a few minutes of research and just saying “ MOSLEMS ARE BARBARIC ISLAM IS BARBARIC ERADICATE ALL MOSLEMS “ not even realizing that isis is bombing mosques and mainly invading MUSLIM populated countries
I’m sick of Isis making islam look like a barbaric religion , killing innocents and destroying countries like Syria
you don’t see people putting #pray4syria? Or talking about it in news or Iraq they don’t give a shit all they’ll do is ignore it While isis is killing millions news channels are busy reporting on what trump fucking ate for dinner because that’s way more important
i saw a disgusting video of this son of a bitch saying he’s gonna blow his daughters up while he’s SMILING and HUGGING them
i felt like throwing up how could someone be so fucking cruel and disgusting to do that
these cunts are ruining millions of people’s lives
yet no ones doing shit about it
USA doesn’t give a fuck
Saudi Arabia doesn’t give a fuck
the list goes on
perhaps instead of saying “ Pokémon is a distraction from the Jews!!!!! “ , “ fidget spinners are satanic !!!! “ or posting pics of obviously photoshopped pictures and being like WOW LOOK AT GODS CREATIONS
maybe these idiots can do something useful and condemn these disgusting pieces of shit
its like you’re a person and you have a tiny scratch and a giant wound bleeding
what you do is over exaggerate over the scratch and let your wound keep bleeding
people are so fucked up
fuck this , fuck isis and fuck society

I knew about Tori Amos before 2017. I had listened to her albums Little Earthquakes and From The Choirgirl Hotel, which are two of my favorite albums... ever. But thanks to @Hylia and @Vulnicura. I dove into the rest of her discography. I still have yet to listen to Gold Dust or Strange Little Girls, but I've listened to every single one of her other studio albums now, and last night we listened to her Christmas album too (thanks @Aidan. for that thread).
I also knew about Bjork before 2017. Back when Spotify was first starting out and not at all the giant it is now, I asked my alternative friend for music recs so I could expand my music taste. Amoung others he recommended me Tori Amos, Liz Phair, and Bjork. He recommended me Post and Debut. Well, once again, Spotify wasn't a giant back then YET. So it didn't have Post and Debut - it only had Post Live. I listened to Post Live and I liked it, but not enough to get addicted to it. Fastforward 6 years to now, on FOTP, when those same people mentioned above (Hylia and Vulnicura) strongly hint that I should give her a chance again. So I do. I've so far listened to Post, Debut, and Homogenic, and I've loved every single one. So even though I TECHNICALLY listened to "Post Live" in 2011, I still count "Post" and its songs as a 2017 discovery.
As for Kehlani, I did NOT know about her before 2017. But thanks to one of my Twitter friends named Anita, as well as @QUINN and Hylia, I dove into her work this year - starting with her album released in January, SweetSexySavage. Obviously that album isn't on this list because it came out in 2017, BUT I also dove into Cloud 19 and You Should Be Here (her two pre-2017 mixtapes). And I am so glad I did. And then as you all should know by now, I later got to meet her. She is the sweetest girl ever and I'm so glad I discovered her in 2017.
Favorite albums/songs/etc. that were released in 2017 are here
UPDATE (12/18/17): I added two more albums and a few songs from those albums (as well as one song from an unnamed album ). I OBVIOUSLY knew who Madonna was before 2017, but I fell slowly out of touch with her. I think my days of being a superfan are still long long over but @Monster gave me an excuse to finally listen to MDNA and Rebel Heart a million years later, and I LOVE Rebel Heart a lot.
spent the past week face plastered to laptop, living off asparthame coffee creamers and cheeseburgers from mcd that have 4 extra patties and discarding the bread because im to skinny for carbs keeping in mind the meat probably has rats in it but its the only thing i can afford that isnt canned tuna because america etc how are you spice qirls doing 👄
You say you don’t judge me
Yet you approve the laws that do
You say you won’t hurt me
Yet you do with your words,
Words that say I shouldn’t be allowed to marry the one I want,
Words that say if you can’t create a child you shouldn’t be together
Words that say the only love allowed is the kind you experience
And not mine.
Actions speak louder than words,
And your words of love have no merit if your actions don’t echo it.
You think just because you’re nice to my face that you’re not judgmental
But behind my back ‘prayed’ to fix something that cannot be fixed
To a God that made me this way and wouldn’t want me any other way.
You say you don’t judge me
But you do,
And whether you admit it to yourself or not
It is what is true.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I've begun to delve into my collection of seasonal music. I'm not a huge listener of holiday music, but
I figured I'd write a little something about the albums I turn to around this time of year!
Mariah Carey – Merry Christmas
Mariah Carey’s 1994 Christmas album has become a classic, cemented into pop culture by the holiday hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You”.
It is a songI’ve always loved and I enjoy it even more today. It is such a joyous and infectious song, so it isn’t difficult to see why .The album has two
more original songs, with the ballad “Miss You Most (At Christmas Time)” being another highlight. The rest of the album is made up of covers of
classics and traditional ‘carols’. The upbeat, dance variation of “Joy to the World” is a personal favorite, and Mariah’s voice was made to sing a song like
“Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”. Mariah does the songs justice while adding her own personal flair. She and Walter Afanasieff kept the production
simple and classic, which adds to the timeless nature of the music. The album slows down a bit at the end, but there is already plenty to enjoy.
Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers – Once Upon A Christmas
Alright, before any of you judge me for this, this was the Christmas album for me when I was kid. Even without the nostalgia factor, this album
is enjoyable to this day – and I actually recommend it to anyone who enjoys holiday music. Even though both of these performers are
country artists, the album itself has a more traditional Christmas sound. The record is mostly duets between the two, but Dolly and Kenny also
have a few solo performances as well. Dolly’s medley of “Winter Wonderland/Sleigh Ride” is my favorite version of the classic. It is wonderfully
pastoral and gives the listener a sense of comfort and calming joy. The album features original material as well. The upbeat, infectious “With Bells On”
is a particular highlight for me. The title track is a dramatic, haunting tale of the first christmas. It has since become a classic radio holiday hit.
I understand that this might not be for everyone, but it holds a special place in my heart.
Enya – And Winter Came...
Now we’re moving away from the traditional “Christmas” tunes and more towards wintery, seasonal music. The New Age artist Enya had
released a few holiday music before finally releasing a full album dedicated to the season. There are only two covers of traditional classics,
one of them being a dark rendition of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”, which is partly sung in Latin; the other being an Irish Gaelic version of
“Silent Night” – “Oíche Chiúin” – which has become my favorite rendering of the classic. While a good portion of the album is made up of romantic
ballads that only barely fit with the winter theme, there are three tracks that have come holiday classics for me. “Journey of the Angels” is Enya’s
version of a Christmas hymn, “White Is in the Winter Night” is a jolly, 20th century style carol, and “One Toy Soldier” is like an inspiring children’s book.
The title track, a simple piano composition, is a particular highlight for me as well. I applaud Enya for not relying too much on Christmas
stereotypes and cliches, and gives the listener a unique experience.
Vince Guaraldi – A Charlie Brown Christmas
As I’ve grown older, I have become less interested in the usual Christmas songs that crowd radio station during the holiday season. This is why
I really enjoy listening to Vince Guardaldi’s soundtrack for the 1965 cartoon A Charlie Brown Christmas. The entire album is, for the most part,
instrumental in the piano-jazz variety. It is wonderfully comforting background music and perfect for a cozy day home in next to a fire with the
snow falling outside. The composition “Linus and Lucy” has become a holiday classic, but also has the appeal of not being inherently Christmasy.
Renditions of traditional music like “O Tannenbaum” and “What Child Is This” adds a certain familiarity to the music, while original tracks
like “Christmas Time Is Here” and “Skating” are easy additions to the holiday canon. The album is a must have for the holiday season.
Kate Bush – 50 Words For Snow
I wouldn’t really expect someone like Kate Bush to make a straightforward Christmas album, and neither should you. Even though
she tried her hand at a Christmas song in 1980, she returned to the concept in 2011 with her album 50 Words For Snow. The album doesn’t
have any semblance of Christmas cheer, however, and instead captures the season of winter in her own, strange fashion. Just like with
A Charlie Brown Christmas, these songs are mostly piano-driven with hints of jazz elements, which might be a reason why I am drawn to it. The tracks
are anywhere from seven to thirteen minutes long, making them perfect for moody background music. The opening track “Snowflake”
features vocals from her young son Bertie, singing from the point of view of a falling snowflake. The track ambles and drifts around wonderfully.
Every track on the album has hints of darkness to it. “Lake Tahoe” is a ghost story, “Misty” is about a woman who sleeps with a snowman,
“Wild Man” is a sympathetic look at the Yeti, and the title song is a poetic rambling of made-up words. It’s certainly not a holiday album,
but I think it’s perfect for Winter; which often isn’t so cheery as Christmas music makes it seem to be.
Bonus – Other Christmas Songs I Enjoy:
Last Christmas (Wham!)
Christmas Wrapping (The Waitresses)
Santa Baby (Kylie Minogue)
Christmas Day (She & Him)
O Holy Night (Celine Dion)
