Last weekend, Google disabled my AdSense account (which is the thing that puts ads on my videos and allows me to make a very small amount of money on the side). They wouldn’t tell me exactly why, saying that they don’t want to give people ideas about exploiting the system, but they allowed me to appeal.
And today they denied my appeal. And they STILL won’t tell me what I’m supposed to have done. And there’s no way for me to appeal again. And the email sounds like I’m never allowed to apply to use AdSense ever again. As far as I can tell from the emails, they’re hinting that they think I have invalid clicking activity of some sort on my account. Which I don’t, unless someone somehow got my AdSense account information and did bad things with my account, which I’m doubtful about.
To my knowledge, I have NEVER violated any of the Terms & Conditions or policies. And my YouTube account is in perfect standing, no strikes or anything. This is so fucking bogus. It’s not like I made much money off of YouTube, but I put hard work into my videos, and I was only a few dollars away from the payment threshold, and now I can’t have the money.
This is frustrating.
THAT’S THE MOST AWESOME THING I HAVE SEEN

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.
ohhhh my fuck
Every time I see Elizabeth i’s signature I get absurdly happy cause I just imagine her signing her name and doing a little twirly and then pausing and then adding a few more twirlies
“your majesty perhaps thats enough twirls” suggests William Cecil
“perhaps Im the motherfuckin queen” suggests elizabeth and adds 6 more
HOLY SHIT, ATTENTION ALL COSPLAYERS.c
Don’t forget that the shirt you are using will get stuck inside it, so use a shirt you don’t want anymore. Also, do this while wearing your most confortable/used bra/bra you will be wearing when you actually wear your cosplay
I also recommend getting some spray foam (commonly found at Home Depot) and putting some of that inside it as well. Stuffing alone will deflate after a few days and your dress form will crumple, especially at the waist.
But otherwise, this is an awesome way to make yourself an accurate dress form and save yourself a ton of money!
Im just going to reblog this for all my cosplaying friends because this is super cool!
mmhmmm. Good for patterning armor, especially.
described by david attenborough as his favorite place to see wildlife in the united kingdom, the farne islands are home to a colony of playful grey seals that come to the islands — which are owned and protected by the british conservation charity, the national trust — to have their pups in the autumn.
renowned for being friendly, the seals often want to play hide and seek with the photographers, and like to mimic their underwater movements. the seals are also prone to nibbling on the fins of photographers and hugging their legs, which can complicate shots already made difficult by the cold water’s limited visibility.
Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.
To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!
So THAT’S what Gandhi’s all about.
For my followers who didn’t know, silkie is my 3 favourite teen titans character :P
Exhibition: Mika Ninagawa
Viborg Kunsthal, Viborg, Denmark
Jan. 18 - May 4, 2014
Mika Ninagawa’s richly colored photos and movies often focus on magnifying details in extreme close-ups that provide an almost abstract image of reality. The particularly eye-catching aesthetics are kitsch in its exaggeration, but also poetic in its gentle and evocative images.
In a unique style, artist mixes a surreal universe with attractive visuals from the popular culture. For example by reference to older, Japanese geisha traditions and neoclassical films like “Kill Bill”. Both play with staging of sex, violence, weapons and beauty. In this manner, the works represent a special style that is particularly popular among Japan’s youth, but also within a wide international audience.
Mika Ninagawa (b. 1972) lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. She exhibited at Kunsthaus Graz, Austria; Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble, France; Mori Tower and Ueno Royal Museum, Tokyo, Japan, amongst many other places.
