Are you looking in mobile? All my transparents show up as having a black background on mobile, but they’re as they should be when I’m on a computer. Please note that by “mobile”, I mean Android. They could look fine on iDevices for all I know.
no this is on the main site. like the transparent background color i selected is suddenly visible and the image isn’t transparent anymore.
this is weird and makes me unhappy. i mean it’s only a few posts but still. why’s tumblr always breakin stuff.
some of my transparent posts suddenly stopped being transparent for some reason
why did that happen
incredible and batshit he-man puzzle from goodwill. think i might frame it. assuming all the pieces are there of course.
my favorite part is the dude in back headbutting a door.
ugh, this fucking board game. i had this game as a little kid. this shit ruined my life.
it’s a pretty simple kids game. flick the spinner and move ahead how many spaces the spinner lands on. you’ll land on a noise with a number on it and have to press the alarm clock button that many times. at complete random, daddy will violently erupt from his bed, his hat flying off and his eyes bulging out of his head. this sends you back to the start of the board.
basically it was russian roulette for little kids. it was horrible.
what made it so horrible that daddy jolted up so LOUDLY AND SUDDENLY. like he springs up in a split second. what made it worse was the loud ass CLICKY CRANKY sound he made as he sprung up.
every press of the button was an exercise in torture. i was so scared of this stupid thing i would cover my ears and press the button with my foot to try to muffle the sound.
and god help you if you didn’t put his hat on. everything is 20x worse when daddy is laying motionless in bed, eyes and mouth wide open like a dead man who saw his own death coming just before being murdered, springing to life like a reanimated corpse.
the other day i was digging through some old board games in a box in the attic and i found this thing. i opened the box and daddy immediately popped up and made me jump and gasp. i let out an exasperated sigh and just went “ugh… fuckin daddy…”. twenty years later and still making my heart stop.
i’ve always been a pretty jumpy person. hell, even my toaster makes me jump sometimes. i blame all my jumpiness on this fuckin board game from 1992. ages 4 and up my ass. this shit gives you nightmares.
fuck you, daddy.
