Ow yeah, I noticed your lack of excitement for nalu too so I didn't get surprised when I read your answer to that ask. If u don't mind answering this, was it caused by how the manga is portraying them lately, or more of fandom reasons? :/

Question: There was some pretty lame chanting from some sections of the crowd at the Raw after WrestleMania - how much did that piss you guys off?

Brie: “It’s funny, it’s like this mixed feeling you get. You’re like, wow, the fans are creative, and every year they blow your mind more with the chants they’ll come up with. It made us laugh a little bit, but at the same time, we work just as hard as the guys, so want the same respect. People will hashtag #GiveDivasAChance, but to give them a chance it has to start with our WWE Universe, it has stop with the silly chants and really respect what we’re doing in the ring.

Nikki: “I have to say, of course I found it 100% disrespectful. Not only disrespectful for being a Diva, but for being a woman. It was so derogatory, it was so just inappropriate. At the end of the day, we have little kids in our audience, and it’s a family-friendly show. So it disappointed me because I love that the Monday night after Mania is the best crowd we have all year. To me because of #GiveDivasAChance and because we work so hard and we work so hard for our fans, for our audience, I was extremely disappointed. I think there were much better things to chant than stuff about what we do to our men - or the stuff they think we do to our men!


[Designing typefaces has] been a hobby since she was in her teens; her all-time favourite is a type she created where every letter resembles a 3D mouse hole.

“I made three or four different fonts during Short Term 12 – it was how I’d calm my mind between scenes. I have graph paper and gel pens and I would do the alphabet: just do ‘a’ over and over again until I got it perfect and then go to 'b’ and then 'c’. I definitely look like a weirdo with scraps of paper everywhere and the alphabet over and over again. But I can’t read a book and then jump into this character, so it ends up being the perfect thing for me: it’s creative, it keeps my mind active and you get something at the end.” - Brie Larson

LIFESTYLE: How to Cure Writer’s Block

Honestly, before writing this article I was staring at my laptop, my mind and my screen both totally blank for at least 30 minutes. I decided that I had to get up and cure my writers block if I was ever to get anything done. So, I went for a walk in the fresh spring air and then came back to my writing and, ta-dah! as if by magic, my newest article title came to me: How to cure writer’s block.

Writer’s block is an affliction that often affects me, but I have a few tips and tricks for helping blow away the brain cobwebs and get the creative juices flowing again.

Shhhh, be very quiet… It is so rare to see mother and child like this. In Spring they come down to the waterholes looking for food in the heavy mud. Their scooping and dumping can be heard from miles around. Their steel grunts and diesel breath is quite the delight to take in if you get close enough. Look at the little one still learning how to stretch out and extend itself for the filling. Its disproportioned body is not yet ready for balance and agility. Can you see how its cage is still tall, its base length not yet supporting its will to reach? Momma keeps a close eye on her young one, especially near the waters edge. One false maneuver and its off to sinking. We don’t want to get much closer right now though. She can be aggressive protecting her young and one swipe of her arm, one smack from her bucket is no match for human weight. I’ve seen a mountain-sized man flattened before. His boots left in the muck, his body fifty-feet away. Luckily for us they are still sluggish from the cold Winter tightening. We shall return in a few days, when the rest of the herd joins them. In Summer they will be much more active, and the seasonal rains really bring their yellows out.

Didn’t actually have time for this, but I just needed to do something creative so bad–crashed real hard the last couple days after several weeks of non-stop (at times 14-hour day) scramble to balance teaching, translating, applying for jobs, and getting back to my own research. I think I would have done better just to give myself some space to do some sketching and writing right from the start–would have been back in a workable frame of mind by now.   Oh well, this is a fun thing that came out of my moleskine spree today–not sure all the elements came out as legible as I wanted, and I think it’s ambiguous which of the foreground figures are actually furthest in the foreground, but I think the concept comes through in either case. Anyway, SPACE!!

And sorry I haven’t been posting work lately, just way way way too busy, as my note above indicates. My needing to find employment for next year kinda forces my hand, as much as I’d love to find more time for writing and drawing. Of course, if you all head over to Redbubble and buy a ton of my stuff, then I will not have to look for teaching jobs and I can just make stuff. ;)

A Message for the 5SOS Family

I don’t mind if I upset people with this post but I just had to get this off my chest. Hey Violet just held their first twit cam and when I clicked onto their hashtag on Twitter I was so shocked at the level of hatred and abuse that they were getting. 

From what I can gather, members of the 5SOS fam are excusing their disgusting behaviour with some unproven rumour that apparently the girls of Hey Violet “bullied” their previous member out of  their old band. My response to this is, haven’t you guys ever heard of creative differences? Is it so hard to imagine that people may disband for amicable, legitimate reasons? What happened between Hey Violet and their old band member is no excuse to be so rude about them on Twitter and elsewhere. Some people in the 5sos fam were actively mocking Hey Violet and I just don’t understand it. How can you tweet your anger over sexism and reblog your outrage over the unfair treatment of women then progress to put down one of the first female-led punk rock bands to come out for a while? You’re actively participating in the negativity that you complain about. The media makes it hard enough for females to succeed in the music industry, you don’t need to contribute to it. 

You don’t have to like Hey Violet but I wish you’d respect them for being ambitious, hard-working musicians who are excited about following their dream. Don’t let your jealousy over the fact that they get to hang out with boys cloud your judgement. I honestly think that the boys would be so disheartened to see the stuff that people were saying about Hey Violet on Twitter. You were giving the 5SOS fam a bad name & we all know that we’re better than that. If you a real member of the 5SOS fam, you will support the boys new project with Hey Violet & Hi or Hey Records and refrain from sending Hey Violet spiteful comments over the internet.

These are just my opinions, like it or not, but I think the boys of 5SOS would really appreciate it if we treated Hey Violet (and each other) with a little bit more kindness. x

I'm an INFP (but identify sometimes with INTP) and lately I've just lost wonder and awe for the world. I don't feel anything or don't know what to feel. It's hard to think. Any tips to stimulate my mind again??? I'm so bored with life

Try Finding inspirations/getting out of a creative block and Finding your passion and motivation. Some of this should work too: INTP Chip Upgrades: Boost your cognitive functions.

Anyway, I used to be bored (like existential boredom level) only when I was still forcing myself to follow my parents’ expectation for my career path and society’s expectation for how I should behave. After I really decided to fuck it all and do what I want, I haven’t been bored since.

Eight Quotes

  1. Who are we but the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, and believe?
  2. I adore the company of other writers because they are so often lively minds and, frequently, blazingly funny. And of course, we get each other in a unique way.
  3. The great break of my literary career was going to law school.
  4. If life’s lessons could be reduced to single sentences, there would be no need for fiction.
  5. Life is simply experience; for reasons not readily discerned, we attempt to go on.
  6. The purpose of narrative is to present us with complexity and ambiguity.
  7. The truth of the matter is that the people who succeed in the arts most often are the people who get up again after getting knocked down. Persistence is critical.
  8. Only in the mystery novel are we delivered final and unquestionable solutions. The joke to me is that fiction gives you a truth that reality can’t deliver.

Turow is an American author and lawyer. His books have been translated into over 40 languages and sold over 30 million copies. Several have been adapted for film, including Presumed Innocent.

I want to start a new blog for artist/creative individuals.

Maybe something like this already exists. If so… then there goes my idea. lol.

I want to create a blog for those artist that go unnoticed. I see a lot of really creative & talented people on here who go unnoticed. For some it doesn’t bother them but for some I know it makes them sad. They spend all that time working on something & no one pays it any mind. I think it would be really great to do something like this & help my fellow artist get some likes, reblogs, commissions etc. 

Would any of you be interested in this?

Official announcement time! :D For the umpteenth time, I wanted to state that I will be at DollAKon in June. I also wanted to share with you my plans for my table in the market room, along with that surprise I’ve been planning and waiting on!

Market Room

  • 4 Monster High customs (some rerooted, some not)
  • 1 Full SD-sized girl
  • 2 SD-sized heads to be sold as a set
  • 1 Full MSD-sized boy
  • 1 MSD-sized head
  • Possibly an extra doll (TBD)


Alright, time for the awesome addition we’ve been working on! We were able to get approved for on-site commissions to be held in the market room, so no need for shipping or doll traveling. Many services that I normally do will be available at special DollAKon discount prices, as well as one additional “Artist’s Choice” option if you don’t mind a little creative freedom on my part.

5 slots are available for Friday, 5 for Saturday, and 3 for Sunday. If slots have been filled a wait list will be created in case of cancellations. I will also take commission reservations for July while at the con at regular pricing.

If you’re interested in reserving a slot for an on-site commission, please visit my website below! Feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions.

DollAKon Commission Reservation

I look forward to meeting everyone really soon, and hope you’ll at least stop by my table and say hi! <3

scix-in-the-back-row asked:

Are you at all familiar with Ogham? If so, do you think it could be incorporated in sigil magic? ... I request: I will heal.

I have a passing familiarity with it, but I don’t think I’d use it for my own sigils for two reasons:

1) The alphabet is pretty limited, being mostly successions of parallel lines. I’m sure that someone accustomed to writing in it might find creative ways of combining letters and creating interesting and memorable shapes from them, though.

2) While intent is the key in creating sigils, I think I’d have a harder time making them from characters I don’t understand. My goal is to eventually start using other alphabets (hence opening up to non-English requests), so I might get there. For now, it would be clumsy at best.

I hope that answers it sufficiently. If you are already really familiar with the alphabet and don’t mind sharing, however, I’d love to see what you come up with!

My twin ( perilousthoughts ) conspired with creative-mind-and-spirit to make me these earrings for my Birthday. 

I really wanted to take photo’s of them outside as the forward bead creates rainbows on people I’m near! But the weather has been rainy and I didn’t want you ( creative-mind-and-spirit ) to wait anymore to know what I think.

I love how the moon is crescent, and filled with beads that remind me of the sea; but my favorite part is the dream-catcher like loop with the (what I’m calling) dark-matter bead preceding the capsule weight. With the rainbow-bead, it makes them really well balanced and not too heavy. I love them!

The *only* downside is with the length of them, I have to take one out so as not to get caught under the seat-belt when I drive/am passenger. Small inconvenience for awesomeness. :) Thank you so much for making them for me!
