Crystal Kay takes part in indie film ‘Seoul Searching’
Seoul Searching is an upcoming indie teen dramedy and coming of age film, based on a true story about a Korean summer camp in the 80s. J-Pop’s very own Crystal Kay, born to an African American father and a Korean mother, plays Jamie, a “gyopo” (a Korean who was not born and/or raised in Korea) amongst an ensemble cast of fellow gyopo who return to Korea to learn about their ethnic origins.

Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.

Do NOT insult people for dropping out.

Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure. 

You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.

Just DON’T DO IT.

I’m technically a highschool dropout because I was homeschooled since 4th grade & around SAT time, life suddenly happened all at once. My parents were too busy to schedule an SAT-taking, and fuck if I was going to do it myself (untreated depression / anxiety, especially w/r/t tests and scheduling things)

My dad’s a “dropout” too, because he really hated school and ran away from home to meet up with the woman who would soon become my mom (incidentally he also suffered from untreated anxiety and depression)

So there’s my anecdotes on how dropping out has way more to do with untreated illness than with something shameful

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!


Hazel had to go a temporary no cholesterol/low sodium/low sugar diet and it cost nearly $1,000 in groceries a month
I can’t imagine why cholesterol is such a problem in poor households~

The story of Pathologic is not fictional. Or rather not entirely fictional: it’s based upon artistically adapted facts and phenomenons that come from the real life.
I often compare my job to something a cryptographer or an archaeologist does. It’s about reconstructing things, not making them up. My task is understanding, deciphering, and recreating a story that originates from beyond my imagination.
Some of its pieces are usually obvious from the get go—they don’t require much work. A good example of that would be the character set in Pathologic and the general outlook of The Town. They weren’t hard to discover.
But some troublesome pieces just aren’t there. They make me feel like an astronomer. He knows there must be a star of a certain brightness and weight in a particular section of a galaxy even if he doesn’t see it through a telescope; his maps tell him so. Just like an astronomer, I’m goofing off and lying when I’m trying to lay my calculations aside and start ad-libbing. The red giant may look fantastic in my mind’s eye, but it’s just not there.
And finally, there are some pieces that need to be cleared up slowly and methodically first. Here are the dusty ruins of an old dwelling. It’s obvious where exactly the hearth used to be: we can see the pipe section area, we can see pieces of ash. But what was the hearth like? How did it look? What was being cooked in it?

Moa and her Glorious Rumplecomb

Behold the rumplecomb. Bask in its splendor! The “S” curve in the front stands for Stink. Big Stink, to be exact. She is also known as The Big Stink.
You must whisper “Big Stiiiiink” into her face, for she IS the Big Stink, and she will whisper the secrets of the universe back to you. Then snuggle into your lap. Please pet her keel. Please pet it. The rumplecomb demands.
