get your daily dose of my personal rambings, doodles & attempts of art improvements, goasts, pandas, subjects of current fandom(varies), photos, and handcrafts. sometimes I reblog stuff for my own future reference, related to not treating other people like assholes a.k.a. "Social Justice."
I also made this as an illustration for a mod; I think this is going to be a habit now. The mod gallery is going to look pretty with only drawing previews in it :D
I feel very insecure about “backgrounds” like landscape or scenery but I feel like I might be on a good way with this style…

Turn on the app If you feel unsafe hold your finger on the screen. Once arrived to a safe location, enter your code. If your finger leaves the screen without entering the code law enforcement is notified and your location is tracked through your phone.
reblogging bc this seems really useful
i don’t even know what this is but it destroyed me a little too
You are not going in circles
You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.
You ARE making progress
I really needed to read this!!
If you take a young man and woman and they both tell a stranger that they work in the same restaurant, it’s very likely that they will assume that the woman is the waitress, and the young man a cook.
But I thought a woman’s place was in the kitchen? Not when she’s being paid for it. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize the implication of this. A woman’s place is one of servitude.
this fucking hit me like a fucking train
my christmas gifts are usually small and DIY. last christmas i wanted to make something that have never made before, and the perfect conclusion was to sign up for a soapmaking course. this went exactly the way you imagine it, complete with dangerous chemicals to the hand and beating each other to pulp and everything.
but i must not speak more, for it is against the rules.
i downloaded the photos from my camera only very recently, and i put this tutorial-like sequel together for your benefit so it might give you some gifting ideas :D
I downloaded a gazillion pictures from the card of my camera recently, and among them I found this. It was a birthday gift for a friend from last summer.
The keys come from the flea market! One of them I painted over.
Otherwise it was made of polymer clay and varnished with model paint.

gamers are such fucking lame-o casuals these days. like sack up and go sell a fucking gram a month and bam theres your subscription fee.
where did i put my moon sugar+nightshade stash…
So I was reading the ESO terms and conditions like a loser, and it actually says under the rules, "One specific term We’d like to call out, as well, is the term "gay." It is never appropriate to use "gay" as a derogatory term."
I thought that was pretty neat!
Makes me love Bethesda even more.
I have a little unhealthy paranoia about terms and conditions so I kinda skim through them. Real shit right there.
No better way celebrating the lifting of the NDA than with screenshots
Divines bless! My soul is free at last!
Most screens I took were of glitches and bugs only, then it was literally in the last two-three hours of the beta when I found out I can turn off the UI… so I just rushed around taking scenery shots wherever I went. I will take more next time. (Bear in mind that I play on a very low-end LAPTOP so I couldn’t get much out of the visual quality. Nevertheless, screenshots. Enjoy.)
Rather picture showcase than review. Under the cut, because possible spoilers?
NOT EVERYBODY ENJOYS READING FOR A MULTITUDE OF REASONS
- Reading is time consuming. Time is money. Paycheck> reading for fun.
- People do not know what kind of books are out there, yes even with the internet, if you’re put through a school system that only values…
"kings come and go, but the white dog remains", said our etymology lecturer, and it caught me as something you would read on a t-shirt, so I made this design as a joke. was much appreciated by my classmates! :D
(what is this sentence even supposed to mean, you might wonder. basically what it says is that internal changes of a language are completely independent of the changes of history. civilizations may rise and fall but -in case of English for example- people will still stay ‘the white dog’ instead of, say, ‘the dog white’)
So awesome, Fel xxxx
Omygosh Lou!! i haven’t heard of you in ages! <3
There has been as lot of fan discussion about Frozen over the past several months, a movie that has (justifiably) stirred strong feelings on both sides of the spectrum. It’s a movie that deserves to be talked about, balanced as it is between being Disney’s first major animated…
HOLY SHIT GUYS WHAT I NEVER UNDERSTOOD MAKES PERFECT SENSE NOW
re: chromophobia... of course these chromophobes idolized a Greek/Roman past full of cool white marble.... which we've since discovered was actually a gaudily painted riot of color!
I always love seeing this fact pop up. Yeah, what we thought was the ancients just being really cool and aesthetic was actually the gaudy colors fading away over time. It’s like when people think that old houses were built better than they are now, when it’s really just that the shitty houses all fell down already.
Ummmm but the problem is not so much that they weren’t being “cool and aesthetic”; it’s that this entire western concept of aesthetics is built on a mistake.
The ask was in response to this article, which makes it 200 times funnier.
fittingly, I was just reading this:
The Parthenon marbles Elgin took to Britain do consist of marble, but a darkly pitted Greek marble rather than the smooth, snowy white variety more common in Italy. Here lay an aesthetic problem: whiteness versus color. The alarming history of European marble “cleaning” includes a chapter on this statuary describing a drive to make ancient Greek art white that nearly destroyed the art itself. In the 1930s workers in the British Museum were directed to remove the dark patina with metal tools on the mistaken assumption that their proper color should be white. Such a “cleaning” seriously damaged the Parthenon marbles, prompting an inquiry by the museum’s standing committee that halted the work.
—Nell Irvin Painter, The History of White People, page 63
It’s particularly obnoxious given the claims by so many British people that the marbles had to be removed to Britain in order to protect them.
The bold: People should really know about that, too.
And yes, it is connected with this article about Chromophobia and colonialism
which is also connected to the Reformation.
Especially if you think about (at least in an American context) the way that Catholicism has been, to a large degree, racialized. And how the Catholic Mass and other traditions came to be associated with licentiousness and was condemned for its use of decoration (aside form legitimate gripes with corruption).

OMG!!! I FORGET PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THIS!
Yes, all those aloof, “pure” white statues from Ancient Greece?
They actually looked like this:
Vinzenz Brinkmann, much to the apparent chagrin of Westerners everywhere, used ultraviolet light to reveal the original paint schemes of these statues that the millennia had washed away.
And to underscore the Chromophobia?
Check out this graphic that i09 made for their leading image for this story:
You can check out a video here to learn more about the methods used to discover the original paint schemes of these statues and reliefs.
In the summer of 1566, spurred on by the sermons of Calvinist preachers, zealous mobs descended on churches in the Netherlands, intent on ridding them entirely of their imagery. Many churches were literally white-washed.
All of these things are connected.
yes, yes, reblogging for the social justice aspect BUT ALSO THE BEAUTIFUL COLOURS <3
