I had a dream last night that my fav characters were Pokemon, so I spent a stupid amount of time drawing these guys out.
Jack is a normal type that evolves to Ghost/Ice. Tooth is Fairy/Flying, Bunny is Grass/Fighting, North is Steel/Fighting. Then I thought the characters from the Golden Age could all evolve from the same little Normal Type! So Sandy is Fairy type, Pitch is Dark type, and Seraphina is Grass type. And I got too lazy to do them but maybe Koz-Steel, Nightlight-Fighting, Mim-Dragon (cuz they’re way powerful not cuz he’s dragon-ish).
well kinda. top has never had a problem with the nbhd, in fact I think Tyler follows both Jesse and the nbhd on Twitter.
but anyway this one time Jesse was tweeting about how good Justin Bieber is, some precious soul replied with “twenty one pilots is better tho”, and Jesse replied with “ya & my dick swings to the right. & donald trump is a good presidential candidate. 👍🏻”
The first out LGBTQ boxer to win Olympic gold has done it again. Out bisexual boxer Nicola Adams brought home her second gold for Team Great Britain in the flyweight, beating France‘s Sarah Ourahmoune, PinkNews reports. Adams became a household name in the United Kingdom after her 2012 win, and came out as bisexual the following year — though she’d really prefer to avoid the labels.
“I worried about how everyone would react, so I used to say I was single, rather than say I was with a girl,” she told Marie Claire in 2014. “I felt like I was lying all the time. I didn’t like living like that so, in the end, I thought, ‘Well, this is who I am. It’s not as if I can stop it.’”
Her courage in and out of the ring earned her the top spot on the Independent of Sunday’s Pink List of influential LGBTQ people. This time around, Adams seems more self-assured.
“No one’s ever really cared about me being bisexual and I only came out because I had always been out, it’s just the general public didn’t know,” she told Vogue earlier this month. “I’m quite fearless. I’m like, ‘Let’s just go out there and do this and see what happens.’ ”
Now that the world has seen what happens, many are asking if she’ll give it a third try. While Adams hasn’t made a definitive statement either way, the 33-year-old may have hinted at retirement when she commented on how tough the experience is. Her opponent, just one year older, has already announced plans to retire.
The Clavis Artis is an alchemical manuscript believed to have been produced in the late 17th or early 18th century. The text is attributed to “Zoroaster (“Zarathustra”) the rabbi and Jew” who claimed to have written the book over “a dragon skin”.
Zoroaster’s manuscript details various rites and practices relating to alchemy. It has been suggested the text may have been lifted from an earlier work, while its author “Zoroaster” may have been Abraham Eleazar - an occultist who wrote another alchemical text “L’Uraltes Chymisches Werk” in 1735. However both these manuscripts contain imagery to be found in an even earlier alchemical manuscripts by Nicolas Flamel - the man who allegedly found the Philosopher’s Stone. Whatever the book’s provenance it is fair to say these illustrations from Clavis Artis are quite beautiful and strange.
