food blogs with food trigger warning tags
Can we start adding trigger warnings to food posts like “tw: sustenance” and “tw: nourishment” please?
Your mechanisms for survival disgust me.
Just saying, my mum used to tell me from late teens to now in my 20s “your too young to be depressed”. /facepalm
I think it has more to do with the fact that we’re the latest generation of adults and therefore, we’re doomed, in the eyes of earlier generations. It’s a cycle that goes on and on with different woes that the new people have to deal with that the previous generation didn’t. That or the earlier generations will view us as ungrateful for not having to deal with the problems they had, which are now obsolete. Read articles from the 1960s about the baby boomers and you’ll see what I mean.
millions of real existing people fall in love with straight men. what the fuck
im still thinking about this. they dont just befriend and hang out with straight men, they get emotional about them. they think ‘this person is the best thing that ever happened to me’. i think there was a time when this phenomenon made sense to me but now it does not.
what the fuck is wrong with you
I like that the implication here is that because of the use of straight men here that women who would become romantically involved with straight men must be idiots, because who else would a straight man become romantically involved with?
Like, this post is so far off the deep end Tumblr SJW bullshit that it just did a 360 all the way back into being grossly misogynistic as fuck and this is where we are right now.
Can’t win, ladies.
Some Jehovah’s witnesses showed up on my doorstep yesterday. I told them I wasn’t interested and then one of them said that they noticed I “looked young” and gave me a pamphlet while saying it would help me with “an issue lots of people your age seem to have.”
It was a suicide prevention pamphlet.
Good morning to you too.
All right, so I’ve been asked for advice on pricing and the business of freelancing, and rather than try to somehow telepathically communicate links via Tumblr’s message system that doesn’t allow links, I thought I might as well put together a post of resources for figuring out the practical side of being an artist. Because this is stuff everyone needs to know anyway, right?
First off, a super-useful book for freelancers is “The Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines”. The prices may be skewed to the USA, but they give a good ballpark idea of approximately what’s expected in the market. So it’s a good starting point for figuring out your own prices and not ending up with something completely whacked out. The book also has tons of sample forms and information on best practices, which can be even more useful than the prices.
Here’s some sites that often have good articles on the business of art and the finer points of freelancing:
Potentially useful forums (mostly concept art oriented, but they sometimes cover more general things too.)
* Yes I know ConceptArt.org has had a lot of political and technical turmoil lately, but the archives have a wealth of useful material. What I usually do is use Google to search the CA archives: type the topic you want + “ConceptArt.org” + optionally the section you think the topic is in (the “Art Discussion” section used to have a lot of stuff on the practical side of art.)
CGHub used to be another one, but it’s officially dead, alas. There’s a new one called "DrawCrowd", but right now it looks like it’s mostly for art sharing/eye candy and not so much for discussion/info.
If you’ve got the money to spend, this is supposed to be pretty good:
And it looks like there will be a useful video or two posted here (coming soon, but I have my eye on it:)
I’m sure I’m missing a lot more resources, if I think of more I’ll add them!
So the wonderful queengwenevere came to my rescue with a novella-length note full of supremely useful advice, and also threw this collection of helpful links in for good measure. Reblogging in case anyone else out there is in the process of trying to convince prospective employers that they really, truly are an honest-to-god Professional despite the fact that their shoes are held together with duct tape and their last major project consisted of designing a concert flyer for their housemates’ funk band in return for three bottles of Miller High Life and an understanding that aforementioned funk-band-having housemates will cease to filch the artist’s fancy organic tea.
Also, you folks should really check out queengwenevere’s fantastic webcomic when you get a chance. Stunning art, wonderfully eccentric characters, fabulous hairdos, giant robotic bats — it’s got the lot.
I don’t why I have new people following me, but hello!
It’s René Magritte.
I just realized that most of the time, when I search for porn videos, it’s not because I want to get aroused, but to see how weird/cheesy/creative the script is.
Or to spot the moments when the male performers start using fake dicks (realistic strap-ons for porn actors who have trouble maintaining an erection on set.).
Or to spot the moments when the actors of either sex begin to show signs of boredom or wariness of their partner(s).
And then I show them to my friends who won’t believe me when I describe what I saw.
PORNOS HAVE BECOME MY PERSONAL MST3K.
Message me any misconceptions you had at one point about me that you’ve since seen proven wrong.
