"Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example."

thepenbemightier said: What shoujo manga do you read?
um, like a lot lot. I love to read shoujo mangas tbh. I can’t list them all but my these are my favourites?
- Taiyou no Ie
- 14 sai no koi
- Kimi ni koishite desu na
- Ore monotogonari
- Oresama Teacher
And a lot more? I mostly like shoujo mangas that are also slice of life.
At least oresama has over 100 chapters out? Sounds like dengeki daisy with the way it updates. Time to binge read oresama then
Hibi can be so agonizing because it’s like damn, they spoke a sentence to each other in this chapter? The recent chapters are so adorable though, so I think it’s worth sticking through it. It’s more of a light read.
Faster than a kiss is nice, but it’s kind of confused me? It was the first time I felt so miserable on the behalf of the second lead.
I’ve liked it most of the time except in gakuen Alice (don’t know if you read it but it’s so amazing i finished it in 4 days). In that one it was actually creepy. To me, at least.
But this age gap trope has grown on me too much. Which might explain my love for cykesquill.
Yeah at least, the latest chapter ended somewhere weird though so I really hope it’s updated soon- my fav chapters is the one where we saw mafuyu’s hometown that was great, I hope you’ll reach it soon
I know right both of them are so silent aaah it’s cute but I’m wishing that they would just do something already most of the time.
OH MAN I’M ROOTING FOR THE SECOND LEAD IN A LOT OF SHOUJOS like wtf man I was rooting for you why did you let me down-
I like age gaps too I don’t know why I don’t like student-teacher more tbh- and yeah ahaha [nervous laugh] cykesquill
I’m going to binge read it for you just watch. What layton v wright, more like layton v shoujo mantas. (I’m banking on that hot prosecutor husbando you promised)
I just hope he realizes that the bunny is her. Because my goodness, how naive can a person be.
At least in chouchou all of the friends ship them together. And Suiren surprisingly gets waaaaay more done than most other shoujo protags.
its always the quiet ones. Though I do want to slap Kawasumi across the face sometimes to get him to do something.
SECOND LEADS ARE WHAT KEEP ME GOING. Except the ONE time someone might actually win, I’m like noooo don’t. Ugh I’m a
hypocrite. If it’s Daiki though, I won’t mind. He’s too adorable. The second leads always end up with the same sort of character. Do you think the red head tsundere in Gekkan is one (I’m still on ch 10)
I think maybe because, in real life, student/teacher is less woo forbidden romance and more omigod that’s creepy there goes your career and social life. Idk man cykesquill has (for me) sexual tension. I kinda ship her with Polly too.. (I started DD first so I actually shipped Polly with Trucy. Until I was informed. Thank god for aa friends)
