I still want to bulk buy these and adonize batch pink.
And it would still get stuck in my hair…
now THIS is what I’m fucking talking about
EDIT: IT FUNCTIONS AS A FUCKING ORANGE PEELER, AND EVEN A LAMP IF YOU HAVE A STRING AND SOME OIL. SERIOUSLY???
JUST IN CASE YOU APPARENTLY NEED AN EMERGENCY ONE FOR RELIGIOUS SERVICES?
Buying these asap.
In other news, Sims 2 is so unique and neat??? Also, I keep getting fired from jobs for making the “wrong” decision, adsjf;kalsj
Haaah. That dude forwarded me an email he replied to his wife to, aaand that’s the sound of me being done. 10000% done with this shit. I’m emailing him (and his wife) back to not call or otherwise contact me until they get their shit figured out and he gets counseling/medication, because I don’t need this stress in my life. (Not to mention the fact that it’s potentially dangerous for me to be involved with this, due to his shitty decision-making.) So yeah. There’s the news on that front.
In positive news, we definitely have the apartment now, and I’m pretty sure a third person? Future!Roomie talked to them and junk, and she’s also gonna help me fix my resume/get a job, so this isn’t as scary as it was a few weeks ago. :)
NeSpoon is a street artist from Warsaw, Poland. Her artistic focus is on the intricate patterns of lace, and breaking its granny stereotype by using it to beautify gritty urban spaces. NeSpoon calls her artistic approach the “jewellery of the public space”:
Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better.
NeSpoon often uses the usual spray paint and stencils of enlarged lace patterns to produce her works on the street via

Here’s an idea.
Give Kairi fucking character development.
Don’t ignore her. Don’t write her in for the sake of writing her in. Don’t use Sora’s love for her as a way of giving her screen time or purpose.
You created her, gave her a face and a voice, and placed her in a trio with two essential (and main) characters. You named her one of the most important titles in the series: a Princess of Heart.
Live up to it.
Give her fucking character development.

"kids, am i right?"
"no. batu is in a permanent state of contentment"
- Over-explanation. This includes prologues. “Prologues are never needed. You can usually throw them in the garbage. They’re usually put on as a patch.”
- Too much data. “You’re trying to seduce your reader, not burden them,” Friedman said.
- Over-writing, or “trying too hard.” “We think the more description we add, the more vivid it will be; but we don’t want to be distracted from the story” we open the book for.
- Beginning the novel with an interior monologue or reflection. Usually this is written as the thoughts of a character who is sitting alone, musing and thinking back on a story. Just start with the story.
- Beginning the novel with a flashback. Friedman isn’t entirely anti-flashback, but the novel’s opening page is the wrong place for one.
- Beginning a novel with the “waking up sequence” of a character waking, getting out of bed, putting on slippers, heading for the kitchen and coffee…a cliche
- Related cliche: beginning the novel with an alarm clock or a ringing phone
- Starting out with an “ordinary day’s routine” for the main character
- Beginning with “crisis moments” that aren’t unique: “When the doctor said ‘malignant,’ my life changed forever…” or “The day my father left us I was seven years old…”
- Don’t start with a dialogue that doesn’t have any context. Building characterization through dialogue is okay anywhere else but there.
- Starting with backstory, or “going back, then going forward.”
- Info dump. More formally called “exposition.”
- Character dump, which is four or more characters on the first page.
if you aren’t hyped about synthetic life and colonizing space then get out of my face
The concept is bizarre, combining a building material from the time of Julius Caesar with a Jetsons aesthetic, but the approach has already worked before.
This newly-revived technique could provide low-cost housing for refugees and displaced people, and generally provide architects with a cost-effective way to explore convex construction.
me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital
That is a broadsword, why are you fencing with it
There is a freaking door right there. Stop smashing through windows, damn it.
yes, mr. action hero, I am aware that running dramatically from the baddies at breakneck speed is important, but know what else is important? NOT GETTING SHOT. RUN IN A FUCKING ZIGZAG PATTERN ON THE OFF CHANCE THAT THE MOOKS WERE NOT COACHED IN MARKSMANSHIP BY THE IMPERIAL STORMTROOPERS.
Oh, hey, you there, sneaky hero-type breaking into any place for any reason? WEAR SOME FUCKING GLOVES. They’re called fingerprints, dumbass. You have them and you’re putting them all over the fucking place.
while we’re on the subject if you get stabbed PUT PRESSURE ON THE FUCKING KNIFE OR OBJECT OF SHARPNESS DON’T PULL IT OUT ARE YOU WANTING TO BLEED TO DEATH

SOMEONE FREEZE THEM FRAME BY FRAME PLZ
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
please boycott this movie
Now that all current episodes of LoK are up on Nick’s site, I must implore fandom to watch things on Nick.com (or their partners’ sites) as much as you can. Now that Korra is exclusively digital, we as fans need to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to support that format. The episodes will have ads before, during, or after them, but in exchange for high quality episodes and financial support of a show that we love, I think that’s pretty fair.
If you are an international viewer, there are ways for you to work around region blocks. Hola Unblocker is an extension for Chrome, Firefox, and many other browsers that will let you bypass region blocks and view LoK on Nick’s site and though I personally have never used it, it has been demonstrated to work well by many users,
All current LoK episodes are also available for purchase on Google Play and Amazon. Hulu+ users have access to the first three episodes as of this posting and will likely be getting more of them soon.
Please keep supporting Korra. New episodes will be coming out every Friday on Nick.com and affiliate sites. More information on how exactly this process works will hopefully come in the near future.
