ok so Scooby Doo: Mystery Inc. seriously doesn’t know how to handle emotions. In “The Dragon’s Secret” Shaggy falls in love with someone and he thinks it’s mutual, but she actually just uses him so she can steal something. This is Shaggy’s reaction to all of this:
FOUR FRAMES. they give him 4 frames to react to this. Then of course, 10 seconds of fred talking about traps later, and he’s smiling along with the others again, because it’s not like he just got his heart broken or anything.

are we loving the maneskin mv cinematography!! i bet you have an expert take on it so i got curious af. and: i'm so glad they're pushing into the mainstream with that material ✊our bisexual powers have become exponential now
I've barely survived this music video 🥴 I'm still trying to collect all my parts because I just exploded on the spot 🤧
No but on a serious note, this has to be one of the hottest and most aesthetically pleasing videos ever 😔
Putting the rest under read more, because I went off hahahaha
First of all, I always love a good use of a fisheye lense, idk what it is about it but that just makes my heart tingle everytime someone uses it in their art. I think I love the way it distorts a human's face whilst still keeping it recognizable. Or maybe I love it because I know how close a person has to come to the camera to get the desired distortion effect. It's almost like a step into one's personal space, but because their faces are so distorted it doesn't feel intimitating. Love it, honestly I could shoot an entire movie in that style (which would probably look very stupid, but a girl can dream hahahah)
Then second of all BI-LIGHTING OMFG 🙌🏻 in this household we love the use of a good pink, purple and blue colour scheme. First of all because I think that colour combination is so pretty and second of all B I 😔 that's it that's my second point. 🙌🏻 Bisexuality 🙌🏻
And I really loved the use of light and colour in general. I love how they used bright, colourful lights for most of the video. When they were illuminated by green light in front of the red background for example or all the shots when they were glowing red in front of the skyblue background (which by the way, amazing use of warm/cold contrast, which was very popular in Symbolism so whoever is the little art history nerd in Maneskin I see you 👀).
But then they included the parts in front of the black background with a perfectly placed portrait light. It gives the viewer a short break of the excess of colour and gives the eyes a chance at focussing on the artist at hand. This is also supported by the black background. The human eye looks for the brightest spot on a painting/photograph or in this case video automatically and by using a black background and shining the light on the artist, the eye can't help but be drawn to them.
Now most of the "kinky scenes" were shot in said portrait light, which honestly makes me smile because Maneskin bascially makes the viewer look. They don't hide their kinky selves behind colourful lights and fast camera movements, no they shine lights on the act, they want the viewer to pay attention to it almost as if they want to say "yeah we're kinky what about it?" and I think that is a very beautiful mindset.
And here I am drifting off far too much afhdshfha lisTEN I love talking about stuff like that, you can't even imagine. You just opened my Pandora's box hahfhdsh.
I also really loved the low angled shots they did, when they were standing on the glass. Now, looking up at something or someone makes the human brain feel inferior and intimitated by said object. Little story time, but we had a whole class about how angles can change the emotional affect a depicted person or object can have on the person. Let's say one has to take a portrait of a person in power. Those portraits are shot from a slight low angle most of the times as to give the person a higher, powerful standing. When used well it can make the depicted person look powerful and trustworthy to the viewer, when used poorly it can make the depicted person look arrogant and contemptuous to the viewer.
I loved how Maneskin basically looked down at us the viewers (if not even stomped all over the viewer, which again kinky fjsjdjf). No but on a serious note. While they still looked down at the viewer it never felt arrogant. I found it to be very playful actually. Dressed in soft pastel pinks they danced and had fun, bending down to the viewer occassionally to let them know that they were very aware of their voyeristic presence. They told the viewer that "yeah we're here, we're the boss right now but you know that it's all in good fun, don't you?" and I think that is something beautiful lmaooo
Also to end it off, because I can feel my fingers tingling in the need to write a 500k words essay about the MV and still have to water my plants today jsjs, I also really loved the use of retro effects. What a terrible word sjjss, effects, but I think you know what I mean. I loved how they made some of their parts of the video (the colourful ones most of the time) look like they were shot with an older camera model. I love it when videographers do that because I am a sucker for the old look, both in videography and in photography.
And now to actually end it jfjsjdf, in conclusion I fcking loved the music video. I loved the use of light and colour as well as the cleverly placed moments where the viewer could take a breather. I loved how playful and flirty they were and that you as a viewer could really feel that they had fun whilst shooting. My favourite part was Ethan and Damiano making out and Victoria spitting on Ethan jsjsjs. Also especially loved Thomas being tied up and that whole body licking montage in the yellow/pink lighting.
10/10 video and I will now yell in bisexuality 💝💜💙

♡ Caro's Review: Sibi's Writing
because why not 😊 it’s time to praise and it’s time to analyze. i’ll be covering a bunch of aspects so lean back.
first thing that always strikes me… the cadence of the sentences is proper. it creates natural rhythm and flow. you can tell there’s a lot of effort behind it and it’s constantly evolving.
balance of dialogue, plot and description: just the way it should be. it’s so well-done you won’t even notice it. that’s what every writer is aiming for.
there’s a wit to it. it’s modern and draws analogy. definitely liking that because it gives a youthful story a youthful feel. she adapts register to genre and sticks with her strong suits.
world-building is always accounted for. everything has a past and a future.
it’s the kinda writing that always gives people what they want. thank you for not torturing us tbh. ✊
it’s easy to picture what’s going on. there’s a distinct motivation that the reader knows the expression of the character and room for vagueness is small. especially in dialogue. while there could be more ambiguity, the reader is sure not to miss the atmosphere.
you can tell it’s experienced writing. it’s way past any amateur stage, that’s a lot of hours under her belt. especially how she starts her stories tells me where’s she’s headed which is becoming seriously advanced.
the way i’d describe the style with one word is transparent. you can see what the characters are up to. everything is crystal clear. that helps to imagine.
rare feat: no overuse of commas. half of the fandom authors are trying to get rid of their habit, she naturally writes without complication and distraction. makes it easier to read. she could still add more commas and it’d be in good measure anyways.
the style of delivery is consistent. sibi doesn’t do experiments where they aren’t necessary. she has her own brand. 😎
i see a lot proper use of -ly adverbs. it sounds fitting and blends into the sentence without sounding redundant. the adverbs give you extra information. e.g. „a loud sigh which he skillfully ignores“ from the language teacher.
sibi’s is the least edgy motherfucker type of writing i know. there’s nothing pretentious or showy to it. refreshing.
i can’t tell whether she’s a native speaker or not unless she doesn’t set an apostrophe. someone’s been working hard on their english and that’s quite a feat. sibi has something i admire and that is skillful writing through skillful reading. it’s obvious she honors other people’s writings, i mean look at her rec blog, she keeps it balanced with input and output. respect to any author who’s a social creature like that.
consequently, the writing sits right inside life, is very involved in it, instead of looking from the outside in. i could neva ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
her fics are meant to comfort & that’s beautiful.
her weak spot for taehyung is always showing and i like it 😂 and i enjoy when she writes about her hobbies and daily life.
it’s pure-hearted, good-natured writing man… what can i say. i’m a lil jealous of such a mindset.
my god, she says she’s not productive but honestly wow, how can you write so much though?? impressive.
all that effort and immersion and editing and posting is crazy af. beside her good looks and charm (dang right, levi gf 101) sibi boasts some serious game in writing, too. she writes after she is working and runs other blogs. good lord.
reblog plus reply plenty, and go buy her a coffee cuz sibi loves to get herself some mangas, some comfort food and tea. ☕️ it’s what she deserves!!! 🔥🎊
- greetings, caro x
CARO!!! OH MY LORD CARO!!! PLEEEEASEEE!! I am beyond honoured and moved and emotional and happy and sad and- (lol this made no sense but you get the gist) 😭😭😭😭 I know it literally took me ages to answer this publically, but as I said in my text messages thank you! I am so, so grateful for this review like wow you wrote that for me about my writing?? I can’t believe it!! 😭🥺💜💜 I think a reason why I didn’t quite want to publish it yet was because opening my inbox and being able to read your review over and over again made me so very much happy these last few days and I was being selfish and didn’t want to share that feeling with the world quite yet! But it would be unfair of me not to publish it, because gosh even your review is like 100/10 in writing talent, like wow we really stan a queen in this household!! 😍🙌🏻
Your review motivated me so much, no joke you already know this but I literally wrote about ten A4 pages of storyline for Purple Rain by hand because I got so motivated by your review! 🥺😭💜 (lmao bordering 20 now because I can’t be stopped all of a sudden help it is like you magically stopped my writers block with just a snap of your fingers)
Gosh I feel like all the words I am trying to say here aren’t be enough to show you just how grateful I am :( I AM LITERALLY SO GRATEFUL NO JOKE I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! THANK YOU CARO THANK YOUUUUUUUU! 🥺😭💜💜
(also okay you calling me Levis gf 101 and calling out my soft spot for Tae made me literally squeal fadsfjadjfjadsfj) (also you metioning my tea obsession and love for mangas omg you know me so well, gosh it’s making my heart go afjkdjfjasd) 😔💕
Gosh I feel like I am repeating myself but once again thank you Caro, you can be sure that I will come back to this review and reread it as much as I can (probably every day because I’m just so happy with it 🥺) 😔😭💜🥺💕

There is one thing from Savannah's instagram live that I feel the need to address.
She was asked if she answers DM and she said that she was at one point but sth happened and she stopped. She brushed it off like it was nothing and continued being happy and upbeat but I can't stop thinking about it.
Whatever message she had received in her DMs, it must have been really bad that made her stop looking messages in general knowing that (what she said herself) her replying to comments and/or messages is important for her and us. I can't imagine what kind of message I was.
We need to do better. Otherwise they are going to stop interacting with us at all...

Can you imagine in a ScoobyDoo!Gravity Falls AU they met Bill Cipher and were like “how tf are we suppose to unmask this??”
Bill would probably get himself caught on purpose only to make the unmasking that much more creepy:
