i don't have to explain right

did some facial ref practice with the vento aureo gang also @ davidpro part 5 when????

A story from the line at McDonald's
  • Me: okay so my sexuality's a complicated deal so let's just call me queer as hell
  • Friend: nono I wanna know can't you explain it
  • Me: well ok mainly I am asexual which means I don't want to do the do nor do I long for it, so it has nothing to do with lack of confidence or anything like that, I simply don't find anyone sexually attractive
  • Friend: right right
  • Me: but I'm also bi romantic. The sexual and romantic attraction are different, and I still fall in love and want to have physical contact with my partner, I just don't need the hanky panky
  • Friend: right cause you have a girlfriend that's pansexual right
  • Me: exactly and as long as we're both happy with not doing the rumba naked, that's a valid relationship
  • Friend: I get it, I get it... I didn't know the entire sexual and romantic orientations were different
  • Me: yeah I know it was an eyeopener for me when I found ou-
  • Lady behind us in line: excuse me so sorry but I couldn't help but overhear but I didn't know half of what you just said and I was just wondering what that thing your girlfriend was is, pansexual?
  • Me: *awkward glance at friend* oh uh I'm not an expert or anything and uh ok so basically it's similar to being bisexual, but there's less value in what gender the one you're attracted to is, at least as I understood it. So a bisexual would be attracted to a person despite their gender, a pansexual wouldn't really care at all in a way uh I'm sorry I'm bad at explaining
  • Lady behind us in line: that's alright I can look it up myself later you gave me a general idea! So where did you find out these things, you're pretty young?
  • Me: well, Internet. Once you're a bit confused about what you might be you usually go looking for explanations...
  • Lady behind us in line: so uh in theory... It's fine if you don't know, I just want to check with you... Is there a thing called aROMANTIC? like you're asexual, is there a equivalent to the romantic orientation you mentioned?
  • Me: oh yeah, absolutely! You can be both asexual and aromantic, or aromantic and heterosexual, literally all combinations are possible!
  • Lady behind us in line: *smiles LIKE REALLY GODDAMNED GENUINELY* thank you so much, I did not know that. *fishes up phone from pocket* now if you excuse me, I'm going to call my mother and tell her I'm not crazy for never having been married or stayed with one guy for long despite being 50+ but still has three children! *steps out of line and walks off while dialing*
  • Friend: wow that was... Amazing
  • Me: see how happy she got? That's the power of right information.
  • And that's why I've been smiling since this happened.

anonymous asked:

thank you so much for explaining wolf dominance behavior! I'm so sick people like "dominance means they beat each other up all the time" and then someone going "no that's not right wolves don't have dominance at all!" and I can never articulate why both those ideas are wrong but you did it so well! Do you know more good resources about how wolf dominance actually works?

You’re welcome, I’m glad it helps! Yeah I think the debate has gone to 2 extremes now and neither extreme is helpful when looking at actual dominance based interactions.

Here’s some of the models of pack structure that have been theorised:

Some of these are more updated than others and there’s still a lot of variation within these structures. The model that’s pretty much debunked is A. No one uses terms like Beta, Gamma, Omega anymore  (and our guests sometimes do and it drives us nuts). The most basic and updated wolf pack model is that of a family group: a breeding female and male and their offspring. 

But not every pack is like this. Kanti, Bicho and Fiona are siblings, but Bicho usually will defer to Kanti and Fiona and get in trouble for doing things Kanti doesn’t want him doing (howling, ambushing Fiona, being a pest ect.). Kanti and Bicho both defer to Fiona but I have seen Fiona defer to Kanti or Bicho. And Kanti gets in trouble from Fiona from time to time as well. So they’re really all over the place.

Bicho deferring by pawing at Kanti, who is posturing over him. Bicho often uses very exaggerated submissive gestures to annoy Kanti enough to move him away from whatever resource there is. He is the master of Obnoxious Submission.

Also it’s important to remember that, in play, dominance structures are usually completely thrown out. So sometimes you’ll see a dominant wolf self-handicap and flop on the ground and throw out submissive gestures at a submissive wolf who will “dominate” that wolf. It’s hilarious. Good wolf jokes!

Despite Kanti and Bicho often deferring to her, Fiona is IT in this game of Wolf and Hounds where one wolf will be chased and harassed by the other wolves and then the game will switch with another wolf being “it”.

In order to simplify things as much as possible (even though it’s a lot more complex): When looking at wolf pack structure the dominant wolf or the “alpha” wolf - which generally will be a male and a female - is the animal with the most social freedom. These wolves do not defer to anyone and they do not need to “enforce” their position. It’s continually reinforced through body posturing, which is then responded to with reciprocal submission from other wolves. 

Also these dominant wolves are not necessarily going to eat first, howl first or get any other privileges other than being allowed to breed. Their offspring will naturally defer to them and then disperse once they grow up so as not to cause conflict. 

@koryos wrote up a great run-down of different canid pack models which can be found here: http://www.koryoswrites.com/nonfiction/dominance-behavior-in-canids/

I also recommend reading the papers linked to the article.

Hope that helps!

insanesworld  asked:

Got any tips on how to draw Sonic/Shadow's quills? I always have trouble drawing them. Either they're too short, or just don't look right,

well i’m not sure how to explain it very well (as always XD) but i’ll say more or less how i draw them(?)

with Shadow i sometimes start with the  last quills; to make space for the ones that are up, and with Sonic’s i draw the upper one first because his quills are just going down..

with Shadow’s i sometimes, (not always) i draw the upper quill a bit shorter than i usually do with Sonic’s to leave some space between the second quill, so we can see Shadow’s hairstyle shape more clearly

and about the large of the quills.. i think its something that depends on the artists sometimes.. its not something constant in canon art either, some draw their quills very large, and some other draw them short.. in my case i just draw them long enough to not make them look like their head is very heavy and more or less to make clear what shape they have in their “hairstyle” XD..

here’s a sort of .. parallel thing.. XD Sonic and Shadow’s quills together..

hope that helps somehow.. ^_^;

I think, you know, i think the fun thing in music is you get to, you get to write a song and that's all that you want to say on it and you don't necessarily have to explain it much more than that. But i think if you really listen to the lyrics i think you can work out whether it's about that or not and i'd lean towards no.

Yeah I really just laugh at when people compare Aang temporarily losing Appa to Katara's mother being murdered and her experiencing it and living through it, you explained it best in your previous meta, and what shocks me even more is that people don't see the connection in Zuko and Katara both losing their mothers, like yeah Zuko's mom was alive in the end but Zuko didn't know that did he? His mom was probably dead for all he knew, and that's one of many things Zuko and Katara have in common.

You’re right, I guess Zuko and Katara do have a thing or two in common …

Katara: The Fire Nation took my mother away from me.

Zuko: I’m sorry. That’s something we have in common.

Iroh: Please, sit. Why don’t you enjoy a cup of calming jasmine tea?
Zuko: I don’t need any calming tea!

Aang: Okay, okay, you both need to calm down.
Katara Both?  I’m completely calm!

Katara: I know it’s meant to be this way. The world needs you now. You give people hope.

Iroh: Things will never return to normal. But the important thing is, the Avatar gives Zuko hope.

Zuko: Not that you would understand. You’re like my sister. Everything always…came easy to her. She’s a firebending prodigy – and everyone adores her.

Katara: Will you PLEASE shut your air hole! Believe it or not, your infinite wisdom gets a little old sometimes. Why don’t we just throw the scroll away since you’re so naturally gifted!

Zuko: You can’t sacrifice an entire division like that! Those soldiers love and defend our nation! How can you betray them? 

Katara: No. I will never, ever turn my back on people who need me!

Aang: I… I was just showing Katara a few moves. 
Master Pakku:
You have disrespected me, my teachings, and my entire culture.

Zuko: I won’t fight you. 
Fire Lord Ozai: You will learn respect, and suffering will be your teacher. 

Zuko: You rise with the moon.

Zuko: I rise with the sun.

Iroh: Prince Zuko, have you forgotten what happened last time you dueled a master?
Zuko: I will never forget. 

Sokka: Are you crazy, Katara? You’re not gonna win this fight!

Katara: I know! I don’t care!

Katara: Why don’t you try blocking my chi now circus freak!!

Zuko: ‘I’m so pretty, look at me. I can walk on my hands, whoo!’ Circus freak!

Zuko: She’s not my girlfriend!

Katara: I’m not his girlfriend!

Katara: Here’s your chance, earthbenders! Take it! Your fate is in your own hands!

Zuko: A hundred years of fighting has left the world scarred and divided. But with the Avatar’s help, we can get it back on the  right path, and begin a new era of love and peace.

Maybe.

How the first episode of the Defenders should go:
  • *Luke is let out of prison*
  • Luke: Thanks you guys, it's good to be free again-who the hell are you two?
  • *points at Matt and Danny*
  • Jessica: Don't look at me, I don't know either. All I know is that Claire needs our help.
  • Claire: Okay, Luke, Jessica, this might sound strange but we have a situation on our hands.
  • Luke: Claire...please. I'm a walking bulletproof man.
  • Jessica: And I took down a man with mind control powers.
  • Luke: Exactly. You'd have to really TRY in order to weird us out anymore.
  • Claire: Okay, in that case, I'm gonna let Matt and Danny explain what's happening.
  • *Matt and Danny step up*
  • Matt: The city is under attack from an ancient, Japanese cult of ninja called "The Hand".
  • Danny: Right now, they're trying to harness the power of the "Black Sky" from a woman named Elektra Natchios, who was killed but later resurrected through a blood ritual involving some weird, ancient pod.
  • Matt: Also, Elektra's my ex-girlfriend. And she's part of an ancient organization called "The Chaste", who are the Hand's nemesis.
  • Danny: Oh, and did I mention that I was raised in a mythical city by monks and I can charge my fist with mystical chi energy?
  • Matt: And I'm blind but my senses have been heightened to the point that I don't need sight. Oh yeah, and I'm Daredevil aka the Devil of Hell's Kitchen. Are you with us so far?
  • Luke: ...
  • Jessica: ...I need a drink.
  • Luke: Same.

Kel!!! I love you and I need your help URGENTLY!!!! Well, it's not that urgent BUT I have a question! How is it that you use bright colors from completely different families right next to or on top of e/o and still make them work??? I've been trying to do that, but it just looks garrish and wrong and doesn't blend well. :'( All my drawings look boring and monotonous. I really wanna liven them up with some brightness but don't know how!!

HELLO ANON!! ILU TOO!! I’m sorry for the late reply I WASN’T SURE HOW TO ANSWER THIS bc I don’t really have a specific method of using colors?? I kinda just pick what I think looks good and run with it, so it’s a little hard for me to explain the process. THIS IS GENERALLY what I do though, esp the transition color bit: 

It’s also good to keep values in mind if you want to avoid overly muddy color schemes

and OFC this is just how I PERSONALLY DO MY COLORS it’s definitely not the ‘RIGHT’ WAY BC THINGS aren’t 30293 colors in real life SO YEAH!! These aren’t hard rules either, sometimes I use desaturated shadows and sometimes my drawings have a v limited value range.. I honestly just make things up as I go a lot so JUST TAKE WHAT YOU THINK MIGHT HELP AND TWEAK IT AS U WISH!!

vimeo

OUSMANE SEMBENE DOCUMENTARY IS A FREE THING FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS OMG PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT YOU DON’T KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THIS FILMMAKER IS *CLUTCHES CHEST* OVERDOSE ON SHOCK AND JOY I’M HAVING A HEART ATTACK *MIYA DEAD WITH SMILE OF BLISS & ENTERING NIRVANA*


Okay, I was in the middle of posting a hiatus update an was going to link to a thing on vimeo as a part of it when I saw this was on the front page. This man is the father of African Cinema: a title that sounds pretentious and obscure until you realize it was illegal for Africans to write books or make films and the French government asserted that there was no such thing as African art because “subhumans are incapable of making art,” and put laws in place to make sure that said “subhumans” would face severe consequences if they ever “forgot” it. 

If you like Cowboy Bebop or Lupin III, you have this man to thank in part for part of it’s aesthetic. F@#$ it: if you enjoy the space cowboy genre at all, you have to tip your hat to his 1973 film Touki Bouki

If you’re a member of the African Diaspora and haven’t heard his name until now, you have been robbed (don’t feel bad if you haven’t - I didn’t know until my senior year of college.) 

While he had no direct, first-hand in influencing the animanga industry, you do have him to blame for me taking animanga seriously as a medium of written literature and cinema. It was all fun & games until watching what films he risked his life to make as presented by a brilliant professor from The Gabon opened my eyes to what filmmaking and “Good Storytelling™” in general are all about. 

Despite animanga being my favorite way of consuming fictional works, my half-baked ramblings about Japanese folklore, shounen manga economics, and sociopolitical ramifications of animanga as an artform in both the Asian and Eurocentric markets, I will never refer to myself as a “weeabo” because of this man. Appreciation of other culture’s artwork and cultural appropriation are two very different things. The next time you get worked up enough to write a Tumblr screed about how “shy and delicate” Japanese pixiv artists are or whinge about non-Japanese experimenting with kimonos, take a minute to reflect on the guitar strings and vocal styles in the rock, pop, k-pop, and whatever awful thing you probably have playing on a loop on your desktop theme before typing as single word of your Tumblrina tirade.

I love animanga and love analyzing it because this man humble born and raised in colonial Senegal spent dedicated his life empowering his people. Not just the Senegalese people around him, but to the Diaspora as a whole; thumbing his nose at his oppressors, both European and African, until the day he died.

Have there ever been students at elsewhere University that are human but act strangely like fae? I remember a post saying that legends of changelings were a way to explain autistic children and was wondering if people on the spectrum are in a weird in between spot (I'm really sorry if this sounds offensive I'm bad with words and they don't always come out right)

It’s taken in the spirit it was meant, no worries. And honestly it’s an interesting question, due to the history behind it. My answer is no. On a meta level, that’s because I’m aware of the traditions regarding dealing with changelings, and I’ve got no interest in resurrecting as entertainment a piece of folklore with such a brutal history of violence towards people on the autism spectrum and the mentally handicapped. Some things are better left in the past.

Within the story itself, the Fair Folk as I draw/write them tend to be creatures that toe the line of eldritch abomination, covered by a whole lot of glamour (some better than others). The ones trying to look human still have tells - strange eyes, backs as hollow as ceramic bowls, tails, eight shadows when there’s only one light source, a voice in triplicate. They’re always going to be very obviously Off, in way that humans aren’t and won’t ever be.

anonymous asked:

I don't understand why Boruto said if he rebels against his dad he doesn't get punished . Can you explain ????

boruto rebels against his dad because:

1. he’s angry that he doesn’t come home very often and thinks he doesn’t care about his family 

2. to get his attention [mostly] 

so boruto saying that he “won’t get punished” implies that he causes trouble often to get naruto’s attention but he’s simply too busy to punish him. so who does? hinata, of course!

this is important because despite being scolded by his mother he doesn’t resent her at all since she’s actually present in his life. they contrasted that very clearly in the episode. 

furthermore, in the boruto movie after boruto cheats in the chuunin exams, naruto tells boruto that he’ll lecture him later and boruto responds, “you’ll lecture me later? do you have the time, dad? if you had lectured me before then none of this would have happened!”  above all boruto wants his father’s attention, even it means acting out so he would get scolded.

iruka makes this observation  in chapter 700 as well after boruto defaced mount hokage which is probably the “big plan” he mentioned in the episode.

i hope that answers your question! 

BTS as shit my (Admin Unnie) friends have said

  • Yoongi: Can't a guy sleep in peace without their phone buzzing every few seconds?! *is 2:30 in the afternoon*
  • Hoseok: That is the whitest thing I have ever heard.
  • Namjoon: Most of the stories in the Bible make no sense, like, there's no background or context whatsoever, they're just so random. *is explained the context of stories he asks about* ....okay then
  • Jimin: *places hands on boobs* they're hand warmers
  • Taehyung: No I don't mean killer whales. I mean Whaley whales, like ones that live in the ocean.

This may be an odd request, but do you guys have any fics that tugged at your heartstrings, made you feel butterfiles, or simply made you feel a lot of emotions?
