Friday JohnKu - AKA - TGIF
Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF
“So what are we doing today, Little one?”“Friday? Lovely sunshine? 98 degrees? Absolutely nothing but relax and stay cool..”“I can handle that.”   Here we are on a Friday again. It is so nice to head into a weekend. I hope your week wasn’t too stressful. If it was, then you are only eight hours until relief. I went to the dentist today. My teeth had not been cleaned since October of 2019. I was…

Have your heard of the 'For the People' Act?
If not, here is a simplified answer: It's an act that will preserve voters rights, especially black voters, from voter suppression. It would allow our voices to be heard and also campaign spending habits will be for public viewing.
Voter Suppression laws have made its' way into many states due to misleading spread of "voter fraud"* in the 2020 election. Sore loser talk that ignited the sickly and ridiculous uprising in the Capitol in January (article by BC* that can explain in depth in link).
Republicans once again are spreading lies about this act to get it rejected, saying it will allow more 'voter fraud' to happen. It seems they fear of losing their position over the country. It's moves like these that exposes their inhumanity which leads their own party to extinction. Tragic, really. If only they could re-examine their posture and prune their rotting racist-based branches, maybe their party would survive to see the future (I'm sure all parties could benefit from this).
Now back to the main topic: the 'For the People' is in the Senate, right now, in stagnant debate.
Opponents against the bill are filibustering to block votes, according to the Never Again News Network (NANN). The old sly 'debate' tactic is now coming into question. It is now between the preservation of the tactic or saving democracy. Our senate is split down the middle between the foiling parties & the way the Senate rules are currently- it would be impossible for this act to move forward. The future of Americans' voter rights boil to down to one man who refuses to acknowledge the importance of this bill and the death to the filibuster tactic. One who claims to be a conservative democrat from W. Virginia. Senator Joe Manchin now has the act in the air and our rights are dangling on a string. How long is it until the string is snapped or snipped away?
I am not trying to spread fear, just awareness of the delicate state of our future. Even though I'm for independent/third parties, my opinions are strongly against the Republicans. They are making it easy to find distaste in their intolerable, undignified behavior. Not only in the party itself but in their sheep of followers who can not open their eyes to the lies they live in. Lies built on white supremacy and comfort. This isn't about which party having the most sway; this is about integrity and the survival of true democracy.
What can we do to fight for our rights?
Support the Black Voters Matter Fund (@BlackVotersMtr) and join the Freedom Ride to Washington D.C. (June 19th thru the 26th)
Inform ourselves; research and dig for the facts even when the truth is hard to look at. With these truths, we can transform for the betterment of society as a whole.
Reach out and express your opinions, your perspectives to Senator Joe Manchin or more local senators.

Oh, snap!!
Tumblr media
Well, you’ll never believe this.  Mod Edgeworth recently brought something to my attention -- apparently, some of your letters have been invisible to us unless we use our mobile devices.  Because of this, a number of letters (dating back to February 2021) have gone unanswered until now, so if you happened to send a letter that was within the rules but still hasn’t gotten a response, well...that’s why.
Tumblr media
The only fair thing for us to do now is interrupt the queue until we’ve made it through these skipped letters.  A thousand “sorry”s to everyone whose letters we skipped (and to everyone whose letters we now have to put off).  I mostly blame Tumblr for this, but I also bear some blame for waiting so long to get a smartphone.  Sorry for that, too.
Tumblr media
Good thing we figured it out when we did, at least.  Enjoy some mobile letters, everyone!
Mod Edgeworth: 
Tumblr media
NAOOOOOOOOGH!!
So yes, it turns out Tumblr decided to pull an unforgivable prank on us. Mod Justice did try to tell us about this issue, but neither of us thought it was THIS bad. It wasn’t until Mod Justice sent an Anonymous letter of his own and sent it to us that I began looking into it, because I have been cursed with perfectly long term memory of when he brought it up the first time.
THANKS TUMBLR! HIGHLY APPRECIATED!!
Tumblr media
Luckily, I was able to gather all the unanswered anonymous mod letters. Though, from this point on, we will only be answering anonymous letters until we catch up. We will notify you when we have completely caught up. This will not include Holiday letters. We sincerely apologize for this. 
This letter alone will include all of the Mod Letters I’ve compiled that were month’s worth. If I didn’t get your letter, I sincerely apologize. This will also mean that the letters from here on out will look slightly different, since we are having to use our mobile devices and log onto the Tumblr App. On the plus side, you will no longer worry about hiding your emails or identity, since the mobile devices hides them well.
I’ll let Mod Justice have a say, since he was technically the whistleblower. I sincerely apologize for not looking into this earlier when you first came onboard.
Mod Justice:
Tumblr media
BY THE HOLY MOTHER...
Tumblr media
I knew there were lots of unanswered letters, but HOW DID THEY GET ALL THE WAY BACK FROM FEBRUARY?!
(I should have kept my mouth shut...)
No, no, NO. I’m NOT going to be like that. That’s just SELFISH and RUDE to all the fans who posted the letters in the first place.
Here are our responses to the following mod letters:
Tumblr media
(Referenced Letter)
Dear dawsongfg,
Tumblr media
Mod Justice: Please do. It will be better for everyone’s mental health, possibly including yours.
(Seriously, consider yourself lucky I’m this generous. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have given the referenced letter a link here. You can repay me by following through on your promise.)
Tumblr media
Dear Gumshoe “Letty” Fan,
Mod Edgeworth: 
Tumblr media
You forgot to include “give all your possessions to your Gumshoe.”
Co-Mod: Just tell me where I can find those things, and it’s a done deal, pal.
Tumblr media
Dear Anonymous,
Co-Mod: You figured it out.  Congratulations.
Mod Edgeworth: How would I know? I submit letters by phone that doesn’t require any keyboard. 
Tumblr media
(Referenced Letter)
Dear Anonymous,
Mod Justice: I’m sorry, but firstly, “Change is bad“?! Really?!
Tumblr media
You really need to re-evaluate your life if you’re going to have THAT kind of attitude.
And to answer your question: no, those letters are from the “Stone Age” of this exact blog.
Tumblr media
Dear Dawsongfg,
Mod Edgeworth: Mod Paups left.
Co-Mod: Yep.  Refer to this post (the 5th letter from the top) for the specifics.
Mod Kristoph: Even if I’m not doing much for now, I’m still on board the team.
Tumblr media
Dear Dawsongfg,
Mod Edgeworth: I LOVE poetry. I used to be a member of Starlight Cafe and submitted some poetry. I do write some from time to time.
Mod Justice: Heh, songs count, right?
Sarcasm aside, yeah, I can see how poetry can be appealing. I mean, so many of Shakespeare’s plays have it!
Co-Mod: Well, I did...  Then I met “her.”
Tumblr media
In all seriousness, I do enjoy a good poem.  I grew up reading Shel Silverstein’s poems, and still find myself remembering them every now and then.
Tumblr media
Dear Anonymous,
Co-Mod: Well, heh...  Now you know.  *scratches back of head and grins*
Tumblr media
Dear Anonymous,
Mod Edgeworth: 
Tumblr media
Don’t worry about it, though I won’t promise any of them won’t get deleted, if there’s a ton of letters to the same character or the same letter to tons of different characters. If they’re different letters to different characters, we will likely answer all of them, especially if they’re anonymous.
Tumblr media
Dear Computer,
Mod Edgeworth:
Tumblr media
Mod Justice: Uhhhhh...
Tumblr media
What in the Khura’inese Hells did I just read?
Co-Mod: 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Dear Dawsongfg,
Mod Edgeworth: It’s been good. Actually, getting letters from mobile isn’t as hard as I thought.
Co-Mod: Well, let me put it this way...
Tumblr media
On the plus side, I’m alive, healthy, and somehow keeping up with the balancing act known as adult life, so things could definitely be worse.  I hope the same can be said for you.
Tumblr media
Dear Car,
Co-Mod: Cars are writing letters now?  Man, I feel old...
Mod Edgeworth: Unfortunately, I cannot drive. Yes, I’m 29 and cannot drive. Sad life I live in.
Tumblr media
(Referenced Letter)
Dear Dawsongfg,
Co-Mod: Glad somebody got it!  Their first names are anagrams of two other Shakespearean characters, in case you didn’t catch that.
Mod Justice: Khura-PUN-nese strikes again! 🤣
Tumblr media
Dear Dawsongfg,
Co-Mod: Given that we’re dealing with this issue now...I’d have to say yes.
Mod Edgeworth: 
Tumblr media
I don’t even know what Tumblr is doing anymore.
Tumblr media
Dear Anonymous,
Mod Edgeworth: Well, if you tag anonymous please or write these letters, while logged off, then it shall be done. Though, since this is a mobile message, I doubt your anonymity will be as big of an issue compared to when it was on desktop. It doesn’t show your email address.
Mod Justice: They already are. 😑
Tumblr media
Dear Anonymous,
Co-Mod: I never got into it, unfortunately.  Even an avid Ace Attorney fan like me can only devote so much time to every piece of fan-made content, but I’d love to see if it’s as interesting as it sounds sometime.
Mod Justice: If it’s basically the Attorney Online chatroom upgraded, then no. It leans too much into the “roleplay” aspect of things, and I prefer to stay away from that sort of thing. However, if it’s NOT the chatroom, I am curious as to what it is.
I DO know what AO3 is. Look it up for yourself if you wish to find out what it is.
Mod Edgeworth: I’ve been to the roleplaying Ace Attorney Online, but that’s it. It was fun.
Tumblr media
Dear Anonymous,
Mod Edgeworth: We’ll figure it out when we cross that bridge, hm?
Mod Justice: I will admit some of those are kinda funny... I might want to cherrypick a few to keep later, actually.
Tumblr media
Dear Dawsongfg,
Mod Edgeworth: Miles Edgeworth Investigations 2. Though, I’ve yet to play The Great Ace Attorney games, so that may change. 
I love AA6 too, but AAI2 was consistent with its story and no character felt underwhelmed or left out. Even the most annoying characters there fit there naturally with motivations that made sense. Luckily, you can find the English patched DS cartridge that will play on a DS or DS Lite on sale, but if not, you can also download the English patch. 
Mod Justice: AA6. Not even a question. However, I did watch several playthroughs of AAI2, and I gotta say...
CAPCOM, WHY IS THIS MASTERPIECE NOT OFFICIALLY LOCALIZED YET?!
Co-Mod: I’m with Mod Justice on this one.  I didn’t expect things to get much better after Dual Destinies, but Spirit of Justice proved it could be done.  The music, animations, story development, character dialogue, and the new Divination Seance mechanic were all incredibly done, and they even capped it off with a case that reunited the original duo and their original adversary.
Tumblr media
Being able to create something so enjoyable for both the long-time fans and the newcomers takes some incredible talent, to say the least, and if you ask me, it paid off beautifully.
Tumblr media
Dear Faith,
Mod Justice: Thank you so much, kind poster! That really means a lot to me.
And about the “Troll Submissions”: Yeah... Hopefully, the person who’s been sending them will follow through on his promise to stop...
Tumblr media
(Link in Letter)
Dear Dawsongfg,
Co-Mod: That’s fine, as long as you don’t expect the characters to act the same here as they do in that blog.  They’ve got their Apollo, we’ve got ours.
Tumblr media
Dear Calisto Yew, 
Mod Edgeworth: 
Tumblr media
Mod Justice:
Tumblr media
Woman, get outta here. We don’t need ANOTHER villain takeover after the LAST one.
Co-Mod: Since when do you laugh like Bowser?

Thursday - A Little Personal - Lucy and Twiggy Inspect the Work
Thursday – A Little Personal – Lucy and Twiggy Inspect the Work
A short note. I am currently extending the downspout drains to take the water away from the center of the yard. During the heavy rains, the yard floods and takes a while to move away. Twiggy loves to play in the puddles, and Lucy hates to get her feet wet. In some of the later photos (By the glove), a tall white pipe is a cleanout. It needs to be cut and lowered by about six inches, so it is not…

Against my better judgement I am getting a teeny tiny bit excited about this and will watch Portugal. Its the pulling force of a summer tournament and also a morbid curiosity regarding a group with Portugal, France and Germany in it!

Honestly yeah I think capcom were like ‘oh fuck we forgot about Mia, quick put something in about her being trapped in Miranda’s lab’
Otherwise she would probably be outta there so quick and would’ve got rose before Ethan even entered the castle
Like Ethan even mentions military training AND she's an ex worker for The Connections. Even if the military didn't show her anything surely to God the Criminal Organization that she worked for for like four years would have given her some insight on breaking out of prisons.
I just...
Mia is capable of a lot of things, even IF she's a bit out of practice.. They expect me to believe she just sat there and let Miranda impersonate her without trying to get out to, at the very least, get more info on Miranda's plan? Like what was she doing that whole time Ethan was in the Village? Playing Solitaire?
She would have had all Four Lords dealt with before her plank of wood husband set foot in the Village if she managed to get out.

Friday JohnKu - AKA - TGIF
Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF
  “Okay Twiggy. Come over here and we can play a game.”“Catch me?”“Well it’s Friday so why not?” Another Friday and another fast week. I love the refrain, “I just don’t know where the time goes.” It speaks so well for the current situation. But, of course, it is a refrain spoken mostly by the senior members of the population. I have to plead guilty as being included in that body of folks. But,…

Listen I get that some of the shit we see on the news is absolutely horrifying but you do understand the importance of including "alleged" in news reports, correct? Like, I hate the slippery slope fallacy, but you gotta know how bad it would be for people to determine guilt or innocence prior to a trial? You gotta know that that would SPECIFICALLY harm black and brown people, because it's based on stereotypes and gut reactions, right?
