Fantasy Football, Football, and Kansas City Chiefs: Email Address Phone Number Name: (optional): Site address (optional): Tip: How dare you guys link a video that was 9 months old, do you have anything better to do then ruin a young mans career ??? You pissed off a whole fan base thanks a lot. What did that b lose ? Oh yea nothing at all she got paid big bucks for acting childish and being disrespectful.I understand men aren't suppose to hit women but If it was just a normal man and women fighting the video wouldn't have been linked 9months later. I HOPE YOU ALL LOSE YOUR JOBS!! ate/Time Fri, Nov 30, 2018 8:06 PM ender Message You guys suck. Thanks for ruining my fantasy season. KAREEM HUNT FAN OUTRAGE Sender Message Hey tmz here is a hot tip. My !! You just F the chiets!! Just because u know we are unstoppable. So how about you cheat allttle bit more for the Brady bunch !! FU! Kareem Hunt fans are PISSED! The video of Kareem Hunt clearly attacking a woman is sparking a movement - an angry, bitter outpouring of hatred ... toward TMZ. Minutes after the Kansas City Chiefs made the decision to release Hunt ... we were flooded with emails calling us a**holes, pieces of s**t, blatant supporters of Tom Brady and many other not-so-pleasant things. We pulled together some of the spicier responses here - including one guy who broke up with his GF over the story. For the record, TMZ Sports is covering Kareem Hunt because there's video of him - a very famous NFL star - striking a woman. A woman who went to police to report the assault. As we've reported, the case appears to be in limbo - the Cleveland City Prosecutor is giving us a "no comment." As for Hunt's on-field punishment? There'd been none until we published the video, and the Chiefs say he lied to them about the incident. Point is ... the story's about something other than struggling fantasy football teams. Just sayin'. tmz nfl tmzsports kareemhunt football chiefs

A Dream, Crazy, and Fucking: mister-smalls Petition to sit down all the people who make coma theories about Adventure Time and tell them "listen, this fucking show is about the last human living in a post-apocalyptic world where deadly magic has been reawakened following a global thermonuclear war that wiped out the rest of the human species, how much fucking darker do you want it to be" Even though I thought my first Creative Writing professor was kind of a douche he made a good point about this. One of our first assignments was to write in this eerie, otherworldly style (we were mimicking a specific author whose name escapes me), so we had to write about eerie otherworldly things happening. Its no exaggeration to say that more than half the class had a "big reveal" where we find out that the story's strange events and themes are all in the mind of some person in an insane asylum, or someone having a drug trip. My professor said something like, "you just successfully wrote a world that feels separate from our own, but got frightened last minute and shoe- horned in normalcy. You showed that you were afraid to commit to something different and interesting." Though I'm typically a contrarian and a piece of garbage, I am inclined to agree with my professor. I feel like people who write coma theories and the like are afraid to accept that the world of the story is separate from our own. They like everything wrapped up in this crazy little realism box where nothing out of the ordinary happens in fiction. mister-smalls you win the Best Addition to a Post prize Thank you :) This pretty well hits the nail on the head as to why I generally hate coma/dream theories and people who think they're so fucking deep for coming up with it. In my book its LAZY, plain and simple judiops I think the only times I can think of where lt was all a dream really works are in pieces like Over the Garden Wall, Ink, Coraline, and Mirrormask. In all of those the characters wake up again in their normal world, but there's a very strong implication that the dream world is as real, if not more so, than the real world, and the things they did in the dream world had a very direct impact on the waking world-not in an "Tm gonna be a better person" sense, but literally who lives and who dies at the end of the story Notably, in most of those, its stated flat-out within the first couple of minutes that the character in question is dreaming. It's not a big reveal, it's a fundamental detail of the setting If you're gonna do a dreamworld, actually commit to doing a dreamworld. Whatever it is you do, ACTUALLY COMMIT TO IT.

Advice, Anaconda, and Asian: STEAMPUNK &other genres thewritingcaf <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://nimblesnotebook.tumblr.com/post/61794170451">nimblesnotebook</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><em>Guide to Writing Steampunk</em></p> <p><strong>BASICS</strong></p> <blockquote> <p><strong>Punk Genres:</strong><span> </span><em>most common genres are in italics</em></p> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li> <em><strong>Atomicpunk</strong></em><span>: Optimistic retro science fiction based on the Space Age. Think <em>The Jetsons</em>.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Biopunk</strong></em><span>: </span><span>This genre is about altering genetics and DNA. These stories often take place in the near-future in which humans have been altered or in which human experimentation is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Candlepunk</strong><span>: Similar to clockpunk, but darker and with less technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Clockpunk</strong><span>: </span><span>Think Da Vinci’s inventions, but more advanced while. This genre follows the aesthetics and technology of Western civilization during the mid to late middle ages, though sometimes it’s set in the Victorian era.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Cyberpunk</strong></em><span>: Has advanced technology and often focuses on artificial intelligence and the cyber world. The setting is often near-future rather than far-future. Blade Runner is an example.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Dieselpunk</strong><span>: Based on aesthetics and technology between World War I and World War II, sometimes up until the Cold War.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Decopunk</strong><span>: Ranges from the aesthetics of the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Decopunk aesthetic is heavily based on modernism. Less gritty than dieselpunk.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Elfpunk</strong><span>: Basically urban fantasy, but with common high or epic fantasy creatures put in an urban setting rather than vampires and werewolves.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Nanopunk</strong><span>: Similar to biopunk, but biotechnology is less available and nanotechnology is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Sandalpunk</strong><span>: Set in ancient worlds, such as Rome, but with advanced technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Splatterpunk</strong><span>: Extremely graphic and contains a lot of gore.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Steampunk</strong></em><span>: This genre gets its name from the heavy steam-powered technology involved. Aesthetics are based on the Victorian and industrial eras of the Western world, though other cultural elements may be used.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Western Steampunk</strong><span>: Similar to steampunk, but with Western (as in Wild West) aesthetics and settings.</span> </li> </ul><span>So why are there so many sub genres? For starters, they help agents and publishers get an idea of what they’re in for if you’re going through the traditional publishing route. While bookstores usually just put these genres within science fiction or fantasy, you can still market your book through sub genres to reach a specific group of people who are looking for these genres.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>However, there are a lot of sub genres, most of which many have not heard of. If you’ve written one of these genres and intend to publish it, the best would be to put it under another name (with the exception of steampunk, cyberpunk, and biopunk). For example, if you have written a candlepunk story, you can propose it as fantasy, alternate historical fiction, or any other genre it may fit in. While atomicpunk is quite common, it’s not well known by that name. If you have written an atompunk story, the best way to market it would be to call it retro science fiction.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>But what’s the difference between punk genres and historical fiction? The technology is a big difference. It’s usually more advanced for the time it’s modeled after.</span> </div> <div><span> </span></div> <div><strong><span>TECHNOLOGY</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div><span>The technology is one of the defining aspects of steampunk. It’s the basis for the world you’re writing in. For the typical steampunk story, technology will be (of course) steam powered.</span></div> <div><span> </span></div> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li><a href="http://ageofsteam.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/a-guide-to-steampunk-gadgets-and-technology/">A Guide to Steampunk Gadgets and Technology</a></li> <li><a href="http://steampunk.wikia.com/wiki/Airship">Airship</a></li> <li><a href="http://pinterest.com/steamcircus/steampunk-airships-submarines/">Steampunk Airships Inspiration</a></li> <li><a href="http://science.howstuffworks.com/transport/flight/classic/steampunk-blimp-pictures.htm#page=0">Steampunk Blimps</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/channel-steampunk/">Technology Steampunk Instructables</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/jdh2812/steampunk-technology/">Steampunk Technology Inspiration</a></li> <li><a href="http://people.howstuffworks.com/steampunk.htm">How Steampunk Works</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/jouhaan/steampunk-gadgets/">Steampunk Gadgets</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.trendhunter.com/slideshow/steampunk-gadgets">100 Functional Steampunk Gadgets</a></li> </ul></div> <div><strong><span>CHARACTERS &amp; FASHION</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div>Another defining feature of steampunk is the aesthetics and the characters.

Alive, Beautiful, and College: MOLTON SELENA GOMEZ GOT MATCHING TATTOOS WITH TWO 13 REASONS WHY STARS NEWS By now, you've probably binged the Selena Gomez-produced series 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and can't stop thinking about a possible second season. If you haven't (how dare you), the story's based on Jay Asher's novel of the same name and follows a girl's suicide and how her death drastically impacted those around her. _ To commemorate the show's success and support a strong movement, Gomez got a semicolon tattoo with two of the show's stars: Alisha Boe (Jessica) and Tommy Dorfman (Ryan). "Project Semicolon is a movement dedicated to presenting hope for those suffering from depression, thoughts of suicide, addiction, and self-injury," Boe wrote on Instagram, adding, "Rest In Peace Amy Bluel, who started this movement." Bluel died last month. _ Dorfman also posted a pic of the trio and their new tattoos, sharing his personal battle with mental illness: "I struggled with addiction and depression issues through high school and early college. I reached out and asked for help. At the time, I thought my life was over, I thought I'd never live past the age of 21. Today I'm grateful to be alive, in this new chapter of life in recovery, standing with my colleagues and friends, making art that helps other people." _ At the time of this writing, Gomez hadn't posted a tattoo pic herself, but did share a selfie with Dorfman and Boe. "Overwhelmed with the response and love @13reasonswhy is receiving," she captioned. "Thank you to each beautiful person who has watched and talked about the message of our show." _ by Stacey Grant

Africa, Memes, and Oprah Winfrey: Oprah Winfrey on Getting Pregnant After Being Raped By A Family Member At 14: "I Wouldn't Have Been a Good Mom for Babies 33 @balleralert Oprah Winfrey on Getting Pregnant After Being Raped By A Family Member At 14: “I Wouldn’t Have Been a Good Mom for Babies” - blogged by: @msjennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1968, at the age of 14, OprahWinfrey gave birth to a premature baby boy who died in the hospital weeks later. For years, the media mogul withheld her story to protect herself from the judgment of others. However, when the news broke in 1990 of her pregnancy and subsequent loss, after the initial feeling of devastation and betrayal, Winfrey finally felt free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, almost 50 years since giving birth after having been raped by a family member, Winfrey reveals that she’s completely okay with the fact that she doesn’t have any children of her own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” Winfrey said in the April Issue of GoodHousekeepingUK. “I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead, Winfrey says she already a mother figure to the “world’s children” in her Leadership Academy boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children,” she said. “Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20. If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined,” Winfrey said of the school. “I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain,” she added.
