so... i debated making this post when i first found this blog. to anyone who remembers from a couple of years ago, kpopexciting was a blog that posted music show cuts in ts format. not long after that happened, i discovered that there was a backup blog. the reason i never posted about it is because of the controversies surrounding the original blog (the fact that they were sharing other files without the original uploader’s permission), however i’ve been monitoring ever since and op has never gone back to uploading anything new. and since all of the issues regarding google drive arising on kpop24hrs which made access to 2020 files particularly difficult, i’ve decided to share it. i figure there’s no harm in sharing files that have already been uploaded and are virtually inaccessible anywhere else.
here is the site.
the site does not hold EVERY cut of EVERY show -- i expect op only uploaded their favourites. and there are of course download links which no longer work -- but for the most part, they do, and you won’t know til you give it a shot. hope this helps!

alright gather round, enthusiasts of shakespeare’s words words words. i’m gonna learn you a fun research exercise you can do in lieu of switching between the same four websites or even include in your research for essays and creative stuff.
step 1. first up, you’re gonna need a play you like (or literally any work written between 1450 to let’s say 1700, but i baited you with shakespeare so.)
step 2. get you a word. it doesn’t have to necessarily be a difficult word that needs glosses. actually, it’s more fun if you take a word you think you know.
step 3: go here. see, you keep being told that the first dictionary was invented by samuel johnson in 1757. which isn’t wholly incorrect, this guy did set out to define all words. but lexicons and glossaries wayyyyyy predate johnson. the catch is, these were for difficult words. or words specific to a trade. this is actually interesting and tells us more than if all words were defined like the OED or smth. more on this soon. now type in your word and hit enter.
step 4: you will see a list of old, digitized, searchable lexicons. and it lists every instance your word is used. holy shit, you think.
step 5: now here are some things you can assume. if your word occurs in the headword (the word being defined), then it’s a difficult word. for speakers of that time. if your word is used in definitions and explanations of other words, they were common words that didn’t need to be explained. easy words may also be on spelling books for children but again, not defined.
step 6: okay, now what? you’ve learned the meaning of the word in context and its usage. now it’s time for conceptsssssssss. click on some translating dictionaries where this word occurs. these are more likely to have synonyms. now take a deep breath because you’ll see some wild connections. why is virginity the same as honesty of life? why does enjoy mean "to possess” something but also TO FUCK? co valences are so fun because essentially ON PURPOSE. THESE WORDS WERE CHOSEN ON PUPRPOSE.
step 7: wonder, and go back to your play.
[just to put my credentials on the table, this is my field of research. so it’s 100% okay if you have objectively a better idea of fun. but one of my friends said this was like carbon dating words, so i’m operating under that illusion, baby.]

Is There More Cake?
Every so often we get Asks looking for something, anything, that is similar to a specific other fic - a second cake, if you will.
Unfortunately these asks are almost impossible to answer. We may not have read the first fic, or we may not have read anything that feels similar to us while it might have felt similar to you. We don’t know what it was exactly about the first fic that really hooked you or what feelings or experiences you are looking to have more of. There are a few basic things we can suggest that will hopefully bring up something suitable, but it’s impossible for us to judge if it is. That’s why we’ve made this tutorial, so you can go looking for that second cake (or third, or fourth!) yourself.
1) Look for the fic in the Library
Tumblr search can be a bit of a, shall we say, hassle, so you might have to try a few times before you get there. Searching for the author’s name can also work.
Check what fics get mentioned on the same posts as your first fic. Those will have similar themes or tropes and may be suitable. You can also click on our tags on the post, but those will lead to a lot of things that only share one element with your first fic.
We have a Tumblr Search Tutorial.
2) Use Ao3 tags
Ao3, our beloved, has a massive tagging system and a great tag search. Check what tags your first fic uses and plug the ones that are about what you loved most about the story into the ‘Additional tags’ search field. Put the things you don’t want into the ‘Other tags to exclude’ search field. Go wild! Hopefully you will get some results that are what you wanted. Don’t be afraid to keep modifying your search to keep excluding things that pop up but don’t fit.
We have an Ao3 Search Tutorial and an additional How To Exclude Tags Tutorial.
3) Fics by the same author
If what really spoke to you about a fic is the prose, or the style, then other fics by that same author may also give you what you are looking for!
If the author has recs listed in their Ao3 profile or has public bookmarks, these may also lead to fics that are similar in various aspects.
4) Fics inspired by
Occasionally, if a work has related works linked to it, you can find fics inspired by your first one that will also talk about the same theme or try to emulate the author’s style, etc. Some of those might also hit the spot.
Hopefully this will help you to find all of the cake you could ever possibly eat. Happy reading!

what settings do you use for your gifs? they always look so amazing!!!!
this isn't an answer you're gonna like but there's no quick easy fix in your settings to make your gifs look that good-- i've been making gifs for nearly 10 years? i'll include my settings below the cut too, but i think these tips are actually a lot more helpful to making gifs!
when you're rendering your frames in blender, scale them to the size you plan on making your gifs. it will preserve the quality and save time.
get familiar with tumblrs gif limitations and learn to operate within them. 5MB is the sweet spot.
there is absolutely literally zero reason to make a gif more than 540 pixels wide. i see too many people do it. stop it. stop it right now.
if you have a sharpening action you like, there are lots of ways of batch sharpening and processing. give it a google and find which method works best for you because there are a few out there.
when it comes to exporting your gifs for the web, use the pattern settings for your dither and noise! if it's a pattern, it's much more uniform, and the untrained eye won't even notice.
there's no reason to lower your colors anymore! in yee olden days of making gifs for tumblr, you had to do a lot more to get things to fit within the limits. now, because the limit is so high, you don't need to worry about the color settings so much.

to everyone else in school right now:
please use sparknotes. please use khan academy. please listen to school house rock songs and watch the history of the entire world i guess and tim and moby and bill nye. any documentary you watch in class can be found somewhere online with a quick google. get your books from project gutenberg and z-lib. download textbooks off the internet whenever you can find them. use desmos for a free online graphing calculator. if you’re learning something and you don’t get it look up the wikipedia page on it and put it into simple english to get the gist, then put it back into regular english to get the full story. cheat if you have to. school sucks so bad rn and if you’re like me and you get all your materials secondhand or from the lost and found, online resources are really useful rn; all of the above have helped me pass a class in some way, and i hope they can help you too.
stay inside and stay safe. best of luck to all the students out there.

brooklyn center donations for food and supplies (4/15)
CANMN is also collecting supplies for protestors (venmo/paypal open, accepting physical donations mon, wed, sat)
updates also on this fb page
remember to check in and help with local encampments
keep this in mind to avoid the spread of misinformation
dealing with tear gas in homes
sign this if you’re a umn student
if you’re coming from out of town: please be mindful of the community and spaces you’re entering and protect those who are more vulnerable. stay out of private yards and be aware that many young children live in these residential areas.
things to keep in mind:
I’ll keep editing this post with more resources so please check back for the most up to date info; these are all from trustworthy sources to the best of my knowledge.
