The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.

"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"


Oh these pies aren’t homemade, they were made in a factory.
A bomb factory.
They’re bombs.

who the fuck thought up the plot for this episode



So I went out and took a look at the hot topic Homestuck shirt that people keep complaining about because John’s been whitewashed.

John’s skin is a bit lighter, but the print quality in general is really poor. A lot of the colors look washed out and the picture is grainy. It’s not just John’s skin; Terezi’s symbol, for example, looks almost GREY.

I know that typically the colors aren’t as vibrant when they’re printed on a shirt but it’s kind of obvious that they skimped since they had to mass produce the shirts in a short amount of time; I personally think the whitewashing wasn’t intentional and it’s more likely that they tried to skimp on production.

Also don’t point fingers at what pumpkin, one of the reps is already asking questions about the shirt on reddit and is requesting that people send or link to stuff comparing the original design vs the shirt. If you want to show stuff you can probably email them or go to the reddit thread on r/homestuck, it’s the one where they mention that the shirts are now at HT in the title; look for where rachelpumpkin says stuff and reply there.

I might post more about this when I get home but the general idea is that the image is kind of low quality and the colors look very washed out. To say that the character was whitewashed on purpose doesn’t work since the evidence, at this point in time, is inconclusive at best; it’s hard to tell if it’s a result of the printer since the rest of the shirt design is grainy or if a mix of things were done with the colors.

Anyway I might post more about this when I get home but yeah that’s the basic rundown from my viewpoint.

All right, I just arrived home. Unfortunately, my pictures aren’t the best quality, but I’m going to do my best to discuss things. This is going to be extremely long, so I put the post under a read more.
