an alligator has a tapetum lucidum at the back of each eye, which reflects light back into the photoreceptor cells to make the most of low light. the colour of eyeshine differs from species to species, but in alligators glows red. the length of the alligator can be approximated by judging the distance between the eyes, making this alligator very long.

Encik Farhan is a scammer. He backs projects, pledging hundreds or thousands of dollars at the highest tier, and then disputes the credit card charges 1-3 months later, often after his rewards have been shipped.
He pledged $1000 to my campaign, and a few days after I posted an update that backer rewards were being shipped, he filed a charge dispute with his credit card company. I’m still waiting for the outcome of my appeal, but if I lose $1000, it will ruin me.
Another project creator got in touch with me this week, asking about Encik Farhan, and dozens of creators have been affected by this asshole, but there is no built-in way to report individual backers or profiles on Kickstarter.
His profile: http://www.kickstarter.com/profile/61606350
His email address registered with Kickstarter is firstname.lastname@example.org, and the contact email he gave me in his survey response is email@example.com.
If you are starting a project, WATCH OUT FOR THIS GUY. If he backs your project, assume that those funds will be disputed after your campaign is over. He’s screwing over creators, and meanwhile, he still gets to look good with all these “backed” projects showing up on his profile.
BOOST! This is really disgusting. Its not only stealing from independent artists by collecting rewards before yanking back the funds, just pledging the money fraudulently could be catastrophic for a creator.
Signal boosting, since I know Kickstarter is a really popular platform here on Tumblr.

If I ever see any of you in public, the code is “I like your shoelaces”

Alright. I’m not sure if this happens to you but I’m really tired of people telling me what I can and can’t listen to. I’m tired of people dissing me because of my vast musical taste and the colorful library I have stored in my devices. What I hate most is that the people who mainly give me a hard time are those who claim they hate labels and all they represent and I’m not just talking about fans. Musicians do it too. I don’t and will never understand why it’s so hard to believe that I absolutely am a huge fan of Green Day while at the same time a huge fan of Avenged Sevenfold. Along with My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Simple Plan, The Used..etc. But then I say that I love Paramore, Morrissey, Lady Gaga, FOB and I get so much shit. Don’t even get me started if I say that I love Queen, Bowie, Joplin and Bob Dylan.
There are so many people that think that pop and new artists are what’s wrong with the music industry. While I don’t condone the new music and am not a fan of new artists in the general aspect, that doesn’t mean I think they’re ruining music. What’s ruining the industry are the minds behind the artists. Those who make everyone believe that we must be against each other. Those who make us believe that if you’re a fan of a specific genre you’re not allowed to like another one. Those who makes us believe that individuality is key but then try to manipulate us into changing ourselves to become what they say is socially acceptable. Wanna know what’s actually acceptable? Being yourself. You like Lady Gaga? Then dance your ass off. Oh wait, you love Metallica too? Then headbang yourself til you’re wiped out. No one in this world can judge you except yourself. If you’re happy with your bands, artists and music, then go for it. Don’t let others make you feel bad for having more of an acceptance to other styles of music. There shouldn’t be such a problem for liking diverse things, and this goes for all subjects beyond music. This is something that’s severely wrong in our society and it’s not getting any better. Being force fed expectations people can never meet. Given a mold we cannot possibly fit. People forget that those molds, expectations and dressed up versions of what happiness is, are completely ficticious. It’s about not letting yourself succum to what the structure of society tells us how to be. It’s about making yourself, loving yourself and seeing what type of person you wanna become. What makes you happy. I went way off topic so to close up, I don’t care if you find it wrong for me to like pop, rock, pop punk, etc. I like it, it makes me happy and I could care less about your small, opininated mind. The difference between my music choices and your spiteful opinion is, I listen to the music.

This! This is why I can’t stand the phrase guilty pleasure when applied to music. If you like it, like it! Don’t let anyone try to make you feel ashamed of what makes you happy. I refuse to apologise for what’s on my iPod. And there’s a reason why I call shuffle putting it on random. Mix it up, or don’t, it’s your call, not anyone else’s.
