there’s a “photo” going around of Emma Watson wearing a dress that is see-through at the top, showing her breasts, and because apparently literally nobody fact-checks or uses google, people are taking it for granted that it’s real and reblogging it.
i get that the way it’s being framed on tumblr is as a woman taking back her right to her body and her sexuality and as a response to 4chan threatening to release nude photos, but in reality it’s literally the opposite. it’s something some gross misogynistic asshole with too much time on his hands made in photoshop with the intent of humiliating and violating a woman.
please don’t reblog it, don’t contribute to it, and if you see people reblogging it, let them know.
You could actually say that this is the anthem of Mirrorworld. I came across this song years ago, and was floored by how that’s it, that’s the story. It’s by Beri Saharof, a pretty popular rock musician.
Since the song is in Hebrew, here’s a translation:
On wet ground without a railing
I slip, and the world has no end
With no past and no memory
I am a hero who rides through imagination
Spaceships are chasing you
Spaceships are calling me home
when the winds blow above you
spaceships – to be or not to be?
Like a lost soul without a home
I sail to the light on a ghost ship
The future chases, the present is a gun
I stand on trial and receive no mercy
Everything that was said yesterday, now
Suddenly breaks, flies into space, and vanishes
There you have it, folks. Mirrorworld.
my sense of history is so skewed. I’ll go somewhere and they’ll be all “this is a thousand years old!”
and I’m like ehhhhhhhhhhhh that’s only a thousand years ago it’s practically new, lookit this 3k year old wall by my house.
I found the scene between Erwin and Zacklay odd, because Erwin breaking down and admitting those doubts seemed to me a bit of a departure from his usual behavior, for two reasons: the first, that I found it odd that he would confess it to Zacklay of all people, and the second, that he has these sorts of doubts in the first place.
For the first, I’ve seen some people theorize that Erwin normally relies upon those close to him for support, and since he hasn’t seen Levi et al in a while, he just had to talk to someone about it. Furthermore, I’ve seen people claim that the reason for these doubts themselves has to do with the separation from his people (again, primarily Levi), so Erwin is kind of muddling around atm.
There’s merit to these opinions, imo, but I found myself considering another interpretation of Erwin’s behavior. One which will probably not be popular, but eh.
If I recall correctly, this is the first time we’ve seen Erwin voice such serious self-doubt. At the same time, this is the biggest success that he’s ever had. I believe there’s a correlation.
Perhaps, in a way, Erwin is used to losing.
Leading the SL for so long, he’s become used to a situation where almost everything ends in a worst-case scenario and lots of death. When you expect the worst, sometimes it’s easy to go all-out because everything is shitty, everything sucks. There’s not so much room to fuck up, because it always goes badly. They’ve been fighting titans, and for all that Erwin talked big about victory against the titans, but even with Eren there haven’t been any major victories. Furthermore, all of Erwin’s battles have been outside with the titans, a continuation of what the SL has always done.
The current victory, not only is it against a human enemy, but it has (moderately) far-reaching implications concerning the lives of the people living in Sina. For Erwin, this is mildly uncharted territory. It’s a big win, and a big change, and maybe Erwin is getting cold feet - exacerbated by the fact that he hasn’t seen his people in a while.
Oddly enough, this interpretation makes Erwin more interesting to me.
anybody else noticed the proliferation of the undercuts in recent anime? apparently it’s not that they’re soldiers in snk, it’s just the new trend…
