gonna-be-may

It’s going to be a perfect day on the Oregon coast and no one can go with the boys and I.

Oh well. We’re gonna have a blast!!!!!! I may or may not get a sun burn. I’ll try to avoid it.

Day 26! I was reminded today, that this ends in five days, which is stressing me out to no end….Because it’s gonna be May soon and all the things need to get done, now. 

So these guys didn’t get to much further sadly. I got all the base colors down and will probably start and finish all the shading tomorrow if I have time. If I don’t, then this guys might be finished and posted after April. One way or another though, they will get finished.

Have a happy week everyone!

When Sam says he feels good it’s not usually uncomplicated: I don’t think he lies to himself, exactly, but I think he does a lot of hard work. (for denugis, who inspired this)

Chen Kun and Wu Yifan will make their appearance in this year’s Met Gala as representatives of Chinese actors. It is also the first time Chinese actors will be appearing for the Met Ball red carpet event.

2015 Met Ball in New York Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Museum Charity Ball will be opened next month, the theme of this year’s Met Ball coincides with China. Many Chinese figures will appear on the red carpet: both regulars in previous years, and other stars that will make their first appearances. Of course, there will also be popular “fresh meat”.

The Playground is one of Peggy Carter’s old SSR bases.

May and Jemma are quite literally running Peggy’s old base.

Mod Post: Some basic things about AAVE...

Here are some things that are common in AAVE:

double negation:
I ain’t never seen that boy in my life.” // I have never seen that boy in my life.

absence of 3rd-person singular forms:

He ain’t got no choice but to.” // He doesn’t have any choice but to.

omission of the copula(to be):

He choosing!” // He is choosing. (I.E. this is another way of saying that the person in question is interested in someone; usually the speaker.)

omission of the auxiliary:

You playing ball, bruh?” // “Are you playing basketball?”

past participle of strong verb denotes past tense:

Man, I been done known that!” // “I have known about that for a long time.”

This and certain terms and idioms for certain people (i.e. the “po-po” and “5-0″ mean “the police”; “trap star” or “pusher” means a drug dealer specializing in heavier fare than weed), places (i.e. “the crib” means “the/my home”), things (i.e. “going H.A.M.” or “going Fed” means “getting wild” or “going off”), or actions (i.e. “hit the slab” means “hit the highway” or “let’s go”) make up the bulk of what AAVE is.

It’s a legitimate English dialect that many people speak. And most black people have been taught how to naturally code switch (or change dialects) depending on who they’re talking to and what environment they’re currently in.

Still, if you aren’t black, you shouldn’t be using it… especially after so many of us have been made to feel lesser than for speaking it our entire lives.
