& it sucks knowing that a majority of people would rather talk to what I look like on the right instead of left.
Why? We have the same personality though.
too powerful not to reblog
Dressing that way to get attention isn’t a matter of looking more attractive so you can get noticed, It’s a matter of looking more ostentatious so as to send out a signal that you are okay with being approached and talked to.
Personality is the most important reason to like someone yes, but you don’t instantly know someones personality the second you see them; all you see is how they look and how they dress. From that knowledge, people try to make conjecture about what this person may be like. It isn’t perfect, but the only alternatives are to think absolutely nothing about the person, or to stop and talk to them for hours figuring out everything about their personality. Obviously the prior is technically impossible if we stop to think about the person in question at all, and the latter would be even more ridiculous. You can’t stop to learn the life story of everyone you ever lay eyes on.
How we dress is just to get peoples attention, because dressing in a flashy way is better then yelling out “Hey! Someone talk to me!” which would just make a person look needy. After you have made a connection with someone though, then it is up to the both of your personalities to keep and deepen that connection, and how you dress stops mattering all together.
Of course looks and how you dress aren’t the only way of starting a connection and getting to that second stage of your personality being the most important thing. Online relationships can get to that stage without people ever seeing each other. Also, going to group functions or fan gatherings lessens the need of dressing flashily because simply being at those places gives people another thing to judge you by besides looks, namely the fact that you like the same things and want to meet other like-minded people.
Of course I almost forgot the easiest way of getting other peoples attention without the need of swanky dressing, being the one to start a conversation. Although, if you choose to take that approach, you should analyze the people you generally decide to start conversations with, and see what kind of clothes and looks you feel comfortable approaching.
A peak into the future.
Hello there, I’m here to talk to you about the Kickstarter for the Homestuck video game.
At this very moment, as I record this message, 6 hours have passed since the Kickstarter began, and in that time, $450,000 have been pledged.
That is a rate of nearly $21 per second. If that rate stays the same, in one month, the game will have raised 52 million dollars, and become one of the most funded video games of all time.
Of course, this number may peter off after the game has been fully funded, but I’m not here to postulate that scenario, I would like to talk about the inverse.
What if we just… keep up the pace? Or increase it?
There is not much clue as to what the game will be like yet, but here are examples of games with similar funding
Halo 3: 55 million
Final Fantasy XII: 48 Million
Metal Gear Solid 4: 60 million
And one of my all time favorites,
Mass Effect 2: around $40 million
As some of you know, the Mass Effect series is one of the best selling games of all time, with a massive fandom on par with Homestuck. At a guess, I would say this is because of a several things, it’s wide and open universe, it’s massive and interactive story, it’s beautiful and detailed art, it’s well developed and likeable characters, and of course the fact that it let’s you ship some of those characters.
Now, imagine if you please a Homestuck game with the same funding. The entire original purpose of MSPA was audience interaction. I see a massive open ended world with item creation, crazy fun battle systems, and characters you will love and be allowed to canonically ship.
I see hilarious and witty dialogue, untainted by executive meddling, and a diverse leveling system and set of enemies that keep fighting fun throughout the whole game.
I see the possibilities of a story so large and over arching that it won’t fit in just one installment.
And in my deepest idealistic silliness, I see a guest appearance by Nicolas cage.
But that might be going a bit too far.
I can imagine this game being anywhere from as simple and fun as the Scott Pilgrim side scrolling beat em up, to being a revolution in video gaming that friends will gather round the TV to experience together.
And I can imagine little more uplifting than, in this time of economic woe for people all over the world, a fandom coming together to buy such a game into existence.
So go now! Go forth and contribute! Even if it’s just an extra dollar, for the good of all Homestucks and humanity alike, Let’s. Make. This. Happen!
Here’s a little sponch of entertainment to make up for lost time. More will be submitted soon.
TO REITERATE, THE BLOG MAKING THIS POST IS THE ONE ASSOCIATED WITH CREATING THIS VIDEO.
The name has simply changed from ‘BROADWAYSTUCK’
To ‘A Brit and a Kitty in New York City’
Auditions are starting again, but they should be resent to the new email address:
Hello! Broadway Jake here, or, sort of.
First off, let me state that, although the name is different, this is the original broadwaystuck blog.
Next, as some of you may have realized, Broadwaystuck sort of fell off them map.
Well it’s not really a very interesting story, but the jist is this.
Broadway Karkat no longer is part of this project, this project is no longer called Broadwaystuck, and all the audition emails were accidentally deleted.
I would like to continue this project, but I will need those auditions again.
If you still wish to be a part of the project, now titled “A Brit and a Kitty in New York City”, resend your audition to the new email address:
Resend it exactly as you did the first time.
If I had already sent a response to your audition, please forward with the response attached to make things easier.
As for what became of the name BROADWAYSTUCK? I believe that name has switched over to a blog run by Kylee Henke.
Check it out at broadwaystuck.tumblr.com
Anyway, posting will now resume on this blog. I hope you enjoy it.
Some important things:
-Though all emails sent before June 15th will eventually be answered, as of now, only voice audition emails are being focused on. It may take a while before art and writing auditions get responses.
-The June 15th deadline was only for voice auditions, not art or writing auditions.
-No date is yet set for when we will officially cast anyone. All the auditions will be looked over, and all the high enough quality ones will be given callbacks. From there, the best will be picked. I can’t predict very well how long this will take.
A parody of “Defying Gravity” has actually already been done by our Broadway Vriska, aka Kylee Henke. For those of you who haven’t heard it yet, take a listen.
On the matter of extending the dates of any auditions, this is what I have to say:
The reason for setting a deadline in the first place is, in fact, to gauge your ability to meet deadlines. It is, itself, part of the auditioning process. So will late auditions be allowed?
Yes, if you still want to send in auditions, we will still check them. Just know that if you do get a part, slipping on deadlines won’t be as acceptable. Also, though we will try to at least check every audition and give them a fair chance, we can’t assure that we will respond to anything sent past the deadline date.
(Also, please direct questions like this to the casting director in the future)
If you have any questions, suggestions for songs, criticism, or general feelings good or bad, then inquire within.
This was something I drew for my Broadwaystuck art audition c: I’m pretty excited to work on this project as well as working on XII more <3
I think with those two, I’ll be pretty busy this summer.
Also, Terezi, what are you doin bodies don’t bend like that.
Oh my, those legs go on forever. Just imagine if she did the splits.
