Heyyy!!! long time no see. I just read your old post (I don't know from when) when you said you were trying to go to Sekipiko live this year? Wonder if you got the ticket or not, but I have some friends there who can help with that. So if you need anything, just feel free to ask me ;)
Thank you but I asked the organizer and he was super nice and called me (from china!) to work something out with me so I’m all set!
OK you guys seriously, I am so doing everything I can to get my ass to Shanghai on the 29th of december…
But how do I even buy tickets for the Sekihan x Piko concert!? The “official site” mentioned on the blog is apparently chinese ebay or so and you need a chinese mobile number to sign up, so that’s out. Anyone manage to buy tickets somewhere?
“I remember working with a law school in which white men heavily dominated the faculty. They used lots of sports metaphors (doing an end run, Monday morning quarterbacking, and so on), with legal jargon thrown in for good measure. I suggested that this was not a particularly welcoming trait in their school, that in fact it was sexist, but they paid little attention. I made my point by speaking for about five minutes in dressmaking terms: putting a dart in here, a gusset there, cutting the budget on the bias so it would be more flexible, using a peplum to hide a course that might be controversial. The women in the room laughed; the men did not find it humorous….Language is power, make no mistake about it. It is used to include and exclude and to keep people and systems in their places.”—Frances E. Kendall, Understanding White Privilege (via brute-reason)
People with little command of the language using German are scary
I mean, the previous SnK OP was a bit confusing -
They are the food and we are the hunters
They’re food? Buh? Is that the Titan’s choir chiming in or what?
But the new OP just makes me uncomfortable
Well now free ones! This now is a victory. This is the first Gloria. Well now free ones! Let us celebrate this victory for the safe battle!
Like, ok, that doesn’t make much sense in the first place (a safe battle? How is that supposed to work?) But there’s a bunch of words in that whole battle-victory-glory rhetoric that some asshole ruined for us back in 1945 and they kind of bring up bad associations…
(Ever since that time I got an e-mail from a French factory outlet sales company announcing a special sale on the occasion of the company leader’s birthday, I get nervous when I see novices handling the German language unsupervised. The person in the PR department tasked with translating the email subject must’ve opened the dictionary thinking “‘The leader’s birthday’… how do you say ‘leader’ again in german… ah, here it is, ‘führer’!”)
17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
endless scrolling sounds nice in theory, but in practice, do you have any idea how much crap accumulates on my dash in a day? My browser memory can’t hold all that shit, so it becomes really laggy and after scrolling a little bit the “load more” thing fails and then I have to reload and scroll through all that shit again
and LJ is now also joining in those shenanigans. I dread the day LJ phases out ?skip=11eleventybillion
dear social media gods, what have I done wrong that you forbid me from knowing what my friends did more than five minutes ago
(ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧RANDOM PIKO-RELATED QUESTIONS ROUND 1: #1. What do you think of Piko? How would you describe him? #2. Do you ship SekiPiko? If so, why? If not, give a reason why. #3. How would you describe the relationship between Sekihan and Piko? #4. Is Piko more feminine or masculine?
Wah, I also get to answer these~
1. What do you think of Piko? How would you describe him? He’s a harebrain with the most gorgeous voice I’ve ever heard. Also known as “That Beautiful Man” because my mother can never remember his name, but thinks he is very pretty indeed, so every time another Piko-related package shows up in the mail, she goes “Oh, it’s that beautiful man again!”
2. Do you ship SekiPiko? If so, why? If not, give a reason why. Visually, musically, how can I not? Yes, please cling to each other some more while singing heartrending songs.
3. How would you describe the relationship between Sekihan and Piko? Well, my headcanon is something like “They always play it like Sekihan is more interested and Piko is tsundere, but really Piko is way more into Sekihan and Sekihan is kind of toying with him.” But if we’re talking reality? Not actually that close. Piko was talking a little bit about it in nama the other day, how with all the concerts outside Japan that he’s doing these days, foreign interviewers always ask him “What’s your relationship with Sekihan? Are you, like, together?” but actually they’re only talking a few times a year.
4. Is Piko more feminine or masculine? Well, he sure is feminine in looks, I don’t think there’s much room for argument there. But he says he’s really just a regular dude character-wise, and I see no reason to disbelieve him. (Although his highschool friends seem like an unbearably kawaii bunch, so who knows what his idea of regular dude is. Very interested in handbags?)
As i mentioned in my previous post, Piko goods is going on a sale from June 15th to June 30th. I intended to take order until 28th, then order for us all, but seems like the goods are going to be sold very fast. So to make sure we will get the goods we want. I will take orders into 3 waves:
Wave 1: For those who order before 15th, which means about 20 hours left , I will order for them on 15th.
Wave 2: For those who order from 15th - 20th, I will place the order on 20th.
Wave 3: For those who order from 20th-28th, i will place the order on 28th.
I REPEAT, GOODS RUN OUT VERY FAST, SO IF YOU REALLY WANT SOME PIKO GOODS, THE SOONER YOU ORDER, THE MORE LIKELY YOU WILL GET IT.
