8tracks alternative


hey, so mourning the slow death of 8tracks, a lot of people are looking for alternatives. i know has been suggested a lot but it doesn’t have any built-in community interaction as of yet,, BUT!!!  is RLY GREAT and it has all the basic fuckin features that 8tracks always should have had like:
– see the entire tracklist
– start the playlist from any point
– unlimited skips and listening
– see how many playlists contain a certain song
– see top listeners of a playlist
collaborative playlists!!
etc etc !!!  plus while it does have a “subscription”” it Only allows you to upload music files directly instead of linking from youtube and soundcloud. doesn’t add more than that or punish you for not paying

this sounds like an advertisement but i just want a community to start building there so we can rise above 8tracks’ tyrannical management :^)
p.s.  yes it does have a mobile app!!


Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who don’t or can’t write the 50k fan-fictions, because of a lack of focus or motivation, or mental illness.

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who don’t or can’t write smut, but are still lumped into a group that is almost expected to write smut. 

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who can’t update chapters frequently for maybe a multitude of reasons, and get messages daily from people asking for “their” new chapter. 

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who aren’t big name fans and hardly get ten kudos or one comment on their fan-fictions. 

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who stay up all night editing and rewriting and don’t get much attention on their work no matter how much they feel like they promote their writing.

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who don’t write a lot and are constantly asked to write more but can’t for whatever valid reason they have. 

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers who have the courage to post their writing online and only have it publicly made fun of for grammar or poor characterization. 

Shout-out to fan-fiction writers for writing their fan-fiction, posting it online, and continuing to do it no matter how much or little attention they get, and constantly improving as a writer with every upload.

You all rock.

The thing about Anakin giving Ahsoka command over part of the 501st is from a cut story arc from the Clone Wars that was going to lead directly into the beginning of RotS that Dave Filoni talked about at Star Wars Celebration. Basically Ahsoka tracks down Maul and asks for Obi-Wan and Anakin’s help because they’re the only jedi she still trusts and knows they want Maul dead too but they get called away to rescue Palpatine and leave the 501st to help her instead. -minathevampireslayer

Oh. Ohhhhh. But we won’t ever get to see that? That sucks. :(

replied to your post “I really want to make some live-action Thunderbirds stuff, but I’m…”

kayo’s likely to be indian! or at least indian-mixed her name is ‘tanusha’ which is an indian name, apparently. i fancasted her as freida pinto, ’cause she was in slumdog with dev…dunno if this helps. i reckon an indian fc for her would be OK??

That definitely helps! I always sort of hoped they’d kept her Malaysian heritage, but…well, maybe they didn’t…

Freida Pinto would definitely be good, but I’m gonna have a quick Google around too just in case there’s anyone a little younger…she’s 30 now, although wow she doesn’t look it!

Imagine an interaction between Danny and Courtney


“Courtney, will you behave yourself?” Danny snapped as the fifth wad of paper that day hit his turned back. Teaching could be a real challenge, and Courtney seemed to make it her goal to be the biggest challenge of all.

“I don’t know, will I?” Courtney asked smugly, folding her arms. Danny rolled his eyes, sighing.

“Careful, Courtney!” cried another girl sitting next to her, pigtails wrapped in pink ribbons. She was one of the quieter ones, Danny noted, and he couldn’t quite remember her name yet. One of the many struggles of being a new teacher, he supposed. “I hear he killed someone!”

Courtney’s eyes lit up at that. “Did you really?” she asked enthusiastically.

Slumping against the wall, Danny quietly broke. “Courtney,” he began softly, “could you come outside for a moment?” Taken aback by his grave seriousness, Courtney fell silent, following him into the hallway. The students began to murmur at this, theorizing increasingly macabre possibilities.

Danny closed the door slowly, barely making a click. He blinked a few times, rubbing his eyes. “Courtney, look,” he told her softly, taking deep breaths to hold his shattered self together, “being a new teacher is hard, and…” he trailed off, leaving his deeper issues unspoken.

Nodding at this, Coutney replicated Danny’s sombre tones and told him “I understand.” And, with a slight smile, she added, “I’m a disruptive influence, not a cruel one.”

Danny chuckled, and the two walked back into the classroom, greeting a room of children full of awe and fear. Courtney winked at him as he took his place at the front of the room, a silent promise to not share his unsaid secrets. And from that day on, neither Courtney Woods nor any other student misbehaved in Danny Pink’s classroom again.

Well, at least not when he was looking.
