"Ladarius Sapho had his valedictorian speech already prepared when the principal at Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois informed the straight A student that he was not eligible to receive the top honor he worked so hard to achieve.

With a 4.135 GPA, The principal explained that, while he performed well enough for the valedictorian position, he technically didn’t qualify for the honor. “I was gonna be number one, valedictorian of 2014. I was going to be giving the speech at graduation. Now they won’t let me.” Sapho explained.

Antoinette Gray is a community advocate who has been trying to help Sapho retain his valedictorian status. “There is no policy,” said Gray told Fox 32. “They have been asked not once, but two or three times to produce that written policy. And the reason that was given by the school principal, is nonsense. Gray says the Principal is simply using his own discretion and that there is no regulation on the books specifying Valente’s decision to withhold the valedictorian from the Proviso East senior. A district representative said the policy can be found on the district website, but so far no one has been able to locate such a policy. According to Gray, it wasn’t in any written documentation anywhere.”

What are your thoughts on this?

I’m over shit like this happening.

I forgot to tell you, I finally watched Turning Girls. Is that all there is? Less than ten episodes? Antony liked it a lot more than I did and kept rewatching the Kaeru livestream episode over and over


Ha ha, yeah sadly that’s all there is. Net animations that aren’t Peeping Life on that channel don’t really ever have a chance at sticking around any longer than that it seems.

The guy who directed it was actually the dude who wrote Little Witch Academia, Masahiko Otsuka, and a buncha dudes from Studio Trigger were at my local con this year - he was erroneously listed as being in attendance at one of the panels and I was kinda dying to ask him basically anything about it. But! a friend of mine shot out a general question to the guys that *were* on the panel and they were pretty much surprised anyone knew about it, ha ha. So, I suppose that doesn’t really bode well for any follow ups.

I’m glad you watched it though!  And I’m super happy Antony liked it. That episode’s obviously my favorite and at the very least I’m appreciative that they actually provided a download for Kaeru’s song on gumroad.

And for everybody else who either hasn’t been following me long enough to have caught my Turning Girls posts, give it a watch. It’s like 7 episodes long at 5~ minutes per episode. That’s basically as little of a commitment as you could ever give anything.


Not what I expected and I am 100% ok with that.

Lab zero continues to astonish me and own my heart.


it’s October and as this seems to mean halloween for some reason (isn’t that in the end of the month?) so therefore you get some weapons grade cuties with a halloweeny theme

Is she hard to use??

Not particularly, but she’s really not the type of character I want to be using.  Also, she’s hella evil and a lot of my favorite characters met with a terrible fate in her story.

Man, Eliza a shit
