McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

SO THAT’S WHY THE MCDONALDS IN SEDONA LOOKED FUNNY
I WAS WONDERING ABOUT THAT WHEN WE WERE THERE
Okay, so this is an PM I got about repostersofdreamworks, which, when I first looked into it, seemed like a nice blog that politely informed the fandom(s) when creative contributions were being reposted by other people and directing fans to the original posters (which is great!). However, the latest post seems to feed into the latest “fandom drama”. On one hand it could be an act to cater to those who are vehemently against piracy. However, as my opinion was asked on this, I’m finding this recent anti-piracy situation to have gotten a bit high-horse/high-and-mighty and blown out of proportion… I mean, as much as we all adore the company that brought us HTTYD, and as much as we’d all like to support them in any way we can, Shaming people for making gifs/reblogging gifs is a dick move. It’s as simple as that.
Don’t put a giant red flag on people for small potatoes fan-gushing acts. You don’t approve of piracy? Don’t reblog high-quality gifs until the DVD comes out. Simple as that.
Let’s be real—what honest HTTYD fan won’t buy the DVD when it comes out? It’s basically free promotion with these gifs—it entices and excites us and reminds us of the absolute beauty of this film.
So, Leather, that’s my opinion on it.
Our original purpose was for reposts, but we also decided to call out people who posted cam recordings because that’s not cool. We were going to reblog all the new pirated sets and inform people that they were pirated because not everyone would know, but that just wasn’t feasible. So we came up with the idea to make a list, so people who didn’t want the pirated gifs would know who to avoid. That’s it. Maybe I worded the post wrong, but it wasn’t my intention to come off as high and mighty or whatever.
People have a right to know who is posting gifs of this footage. Besides, it’s not like no one is going to find out anyway because they’re posting gifs of the footage. I’m not going to into people’s inboxes and ask them to not make gifs of the footage. That would be a dick move. If they’re making these gifs, then they know it’s the pirated version.
The point of this blog is to do it publicly, so everyone is aware. There has been no shaming, just informing.
Okay, then where’s your Red Channels List for people making gifs of Mr. Peabody and Sherman? That’s also a Dreamworks movie. And the DVD for that also hasn’t been released. And guess what! People are making gifs of that movie too! You’re repostersofDREAMWORKS not repostersofHTTYD2. How can you call yourself a protector of Dreamworks Animation, when you seem to only care about How to Train Your Dragon?
I don’t understand why people have decided to go on a witch hunt over How to Train Your Dragon 2. A movie, I might add, that has past 600 million dollars in the global box office, whereas Mr. Peabody and Sherman made less than half of that and nobody gave a shit.
Pirated copies of Frozen came out. People were delighted! Everyone was giffing Frozen! Everyone fell more and more in love with Frozen. And now Frozen is considered the #1 animated movie of all time! Gifs galore! People still bought the DVD, despite probably hundreds of pirated versions being available. And people are still going to buy the HTTYD2 DVD when it’s released!
So what if people are giffing the movie a couple months early? People are going to buy the DVD in November and then pirate it anyway because it is a pain in the ass to rip 1080p quality off a DVD for giffing! Your list is accomplishing NOTHING except making people feel bad about doing something they enjoy.
While you’re at it, please add me to the list. Because I’m going to gif Httyd2 from now until the DVD comes out. And in October, I’m going to pick up a copy of Mr. Peabody and Sherman and continue giffing that. And in November, I’m going to pick up a copy of How to Train Your Dragon 2! And THEN I’m going to go see Penguins of Madagascar because Dreamworks is so much more than just How to Train Your Dragon, and they deserve to have all of their films appreciated on the level of HTTYD!
Okay. So I’m starting to get Elsa/Anna/their mother comparisons again. And it’s really starting to piss me off. Yes. They look similar. Get over it. So I have made a full chart on all of the princesses, plus heroines, showing their parents where those pictures appear and just about anything I can think of. It’s not just Elsa and Anna that look like their mother guys. Almost every single girl looks like her parents. Sometimes that’s how genetics works. Sometimes a baby clone pops out (Aurora, Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Elsa/Anna, Kida, Wendy, Jane, Nani, Lilo, Ani.) And sometimes they only look a little similar (Mulan, Tiana, Merida). I like how we’re all pissy about mothers looking just like their daughters when we don’t have a single girl who looks like her dad. Or at least looks like her dad more than her mom.
In fact the only male character that I can think of where we know his parents or at least one of his parents and he still takes after his father only is Aladdin. (Others to think about being Philip, Charming, Hercules, Naveen.)
Please stop fighting about this. It’s so stupid. And it’s not a new thing.
I play a very dangerous game
it’s not my fault people have the gall to make attractive OCs
"Shh I’m gonna try and get that for you"is the single best description for my relationship with my OC ever
david on the doctor’s relationships in the new series [♦]
See that’s why I like the Doctor and Rose and think there relationship was done well. It was clear that it was a love story but at the same time they kept the spirit of the show within it. The kept the action and the adventure, and that was just great and really well done in my opinion.
what do you mean not everyone has a toilet that washes and massages your butt
Wait there are toilets like that?
what an incredible experience it must be
im mildly concerned about something labeled “turbo” going near my butt
Don’t ever use turbo. My mum had one, I nearly blew my arsehole off.
it’s just like, why are there cat emojis for loads of emotions as well as normal humans emojis
like, when do i need to express these emotions… but as a cat
they’re not for you… they’re for ME
Me…. played around with my new mac air and created this pic of me…. plus wanted to show my followers that I cut my hair short and it’s back to light brown. Hope you all enjoy
It’s scares me that only 16,000 people know what this is
wtf is this some kind of choclat bar
This object has killed over 400,000 people
oh my god.
WE’RE THE OLD ONES NOW
The question I have is do people understand why this goes hand in hand with that:
