Hii may i know what are the placements that make one good at dancing?

You’ll have to discern which of these are ideal for the genre of dancing in question but yeah here’s what I’ve got:

- Mars in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, Aries, Libra, Taurus
- 3rd/5th/9th house cusp in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, Libra
- Mercury/Venus/Mars in the 1st, 3rd, 5th, or 9th house
- Mercury/Venus/Mars in aspect to each other / the Ascendant
- Mercury/Venus/Mars in aspect to the sun/moon/Uranus/Neptune

(Based on the energetic or artistic qualities and physical associations of these signs and planets. For example, Mercury in the 9th house may have very nimble, flexible legs; Venus in the 3rd could have graceful arms; etc.)

“I enjoy the process and the mystery of art.  even the most expert singer, it doesn’t matter how technically great you are or how much you study the technical aspects of it, but it’s the spirit you put into your craft that makes it great.  you can be a great painter but if there is no heart behind it than is it really art?  it’s just the unexplainable stuff that makes it exciting.” 


Two women, two journeys, one goal. Two youngsters who grew up loving music and then, in all the best ways, were diverted on to a new path, and new, exciting futures.

One, a girl born in Chennai, India who relocated to Hartlepool, Britain aged 11 and ended up, via Imperial College London, at Jaguar Racing. The other born in… well, no one’s sure where… who joined a band before she was even a teenager and who we first met at around 10 years old; a Japanese guitar prodigy and martial arts expert who mysteriously arrived at Gorillaz’ Kong Studio in a FedEx crate…

I know much has been said about this already, but I still want to say that I’m so happy about how diverse the Rogue One cast is - among others, there is a female lead, a Mexican lead, two east Asian actors, a British-Pakistani actor, and an Oscar-winning black actor playing a complex character.

For me, I grew up knowing that almost all Asians in films would be martial arts experts. And slowly, slowly things began to change. Asians became more prominent in western films, with Jet Li and Jackie Chan becoming stars, even if in the same old mold. The Joy Luck Club featured a cast made almost entirely of Asian and Asian-American actors. Films made in Asia received limited theatrical releases, but then wide video ones allowing kids like me to consume them. Then Asian-Americans started landing supporting roles playing quite normal characters who may or may not have known taekwando. And the same started happening for films.

Now, I get to see two dynamic characters played by Asians in one of the biggest and best films of last year. I turn on Hulu and I can watch an excellent show that I resonate with, about an Asian-American family in the 90s. Hollywood is changing because America is becoming more open and more accepting. While I don’t agree that the changes in our culture are always truly “progressive,” nor are they, IMO, always changes for the better, diverse representation in the media and entertainment is something that’s very important to me, and something I’m proud to see. We’re progressing. Thanks, Disney for moving us closer and closer to being a country where little boys and girls of color can really feel they can be anything.


Stuart gives Roy a resigned smile as he rises from the table. He ambles off in the direction of the bar.

Naomi: Sit down, Roy.

He shakes his head. He wants his anger back. It’s cowering somewhere between his shame and humiliation, like a kicked dog.  

Naomi: I would really like to talk to you. Please?

Roy: The only reason I came here tonight was to teach your fiance a lesson for stealing my table. He’s not here, so I’m going to go.

Naomi: I don’t think this was about him stealing your table, Roy.

He can’t speak or move. She gets up and steps towards him and takes his hand in hers. Bitterness churns inside him, burning like acid.

Roy: Was it because he’s wealthier than me? Better in bed? Because he’s an art expert and I’m a cultural fucking philistine?

Naomi: Let’s talk outside. There’s too many people around.

i was doing bunch of borderlands 2 (+ tps) sketches trying to figure out how the female characters’ faces work, and i thought i’d post all of the sketches once i’m finished but….. i couldn’t wait, please look at this tiny tina i drew, she’s my fav

Story time!

Just played some splats and decided to make Arnick a total asshole and use scoped custom E-liter. And while using it, I noticed that instead of using the beakons for super jumping, I liked building a little fort around myself to protect myself from incoming attacks. And if someone got past, I’d have kraken ready.

Truly, an asshole playstyle fitting for Arnick.

Hoi! In case you weren’t following my YouTube channel, or missed it when I posted the link to it previously, I have a video up on some tricks and tips when drawing hands! I’ve gotten asked about how to do hands properly quite a few times in the past, so here’s some key points to remember.

I hope it’s useful to you - I know I say it in my vids sometimes, but if there’s anything you guys would like a tutorial on, please feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to deliver! Do let me know what you think, I’m still a little new to vid making but boy do I try my best. I’m still trying to get my Youtube going, so feel free to follow me there if you have one!
