“The spaceman had talked my lord into taking the lad off his hands… I’ve never liked the spaceman much. My lord likes him, and I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s doing good… but… there’s something not right about him.” 

At 5′1″, I am tiny compared to nearly the entire cast…

Hm… Actually… I’m now inspired to draw an epic image of Xephos stepping out of the car now… 

The Rings in YoI ep 10

So it has been brought to my attention by the wonderful @wolfsflei that Yuuri only actually buys 1 ring at the shop in Barcelona. If we check the price of the ring on his receipt, not only does it say 1 ring (”Wedding Ring” might I add) but the price (if we also add + tax) roughly matches up to the price tags we can see of the rings in the glass cases.

So by this knowledge we can extrapolate that they did not get both rings here.

Let me drill the message home with some images.

Yuuri did not know this was coming. Victor had this ring prepared in advance and what surprised him was that Yuuri actually beat him to the punch. They were both honestly thinking of surprising each other with a proposal. I feel like this revelation just makes this scene a million times more meaningful because it shows that they were both thinking of the same thing without even the need for a discussion – that all they both want to just move forward with their lives together.

And finally, that Amarantha portrait :)

“WAS NEVER REAL”, says Lauren Jauregui about comments of romance with Camila Cabello.

Lauren Jauregui and Camila Cabello together? Singer of the Fifth Harmony made a comment about the shipper: “WAS NEVER REAL!”.

Lauren Jauregui denies having had a romance with Camila Cabello: “WAS NEVER REAL!”.

Lauren Jauregui returns to talk about “Camren”: “WAS NEVER REAL”.

LAUREN JAUREGUI TALKS ABOUT ROMANCE WITH CAMILA CABELLO: “WAS NEVER REAL”

Lauren Jauregui about Romance Comments Camren: “WAS NEVER REAL"


That’s all they needed. Headlines denying Camren to the world to know.

“WAS NEVER REAL” - “I NEVER DATED CAMILA CABELLO”.

That’s all they needed for them, right? Every headline with Lauren denying Camren. Camila moving on with her straight image and Camren is dead and denied to the media.

i aways feel a little moved when i listen to isak talk to even about infinity and the immensity of universes and the endless possibilities they contain. there’s wonder and excitement and curiosity and innocence in the tone of his voice

and it makes you wonder, when was the last time he let himself express these thoughts so freely? did he ever? over time, isak had gotten very aware of the image he projected and he wanted to have control over that image and so he wouldn’t always express these thoughts he had, and he sometimes would express thoughts he didn’t agree with, but which fit with the image he wanted to project, so he’d express them as if they were his own. he said it to eva, he was fake. and i think he would also keep things simple, and wouldn’t insist on discussing matters that were actually meaningful. because it’s so much less risky to simply talk about trivial things, to limit yourself to subjects that aren’t worth remembering, that won’t challenge people’s perception of you, or rather the “you” you choose to present 

but this conversation he’s having with even is the type of conversation that requires you to let someone in the house of your thoughts. and it’s always a risk, to open the front door of that house, to let someone step in and to show them what it looks like on the inside, to show them the rooms. but isak not only sees even as a trustworthy guest, he actually wants him to come in. so you can see isak, with each of his words, unlocking that front door and presenting him some of the rooms, such as the one with the parallel universes, and also letting himself explore them alongside even. and the thing is that isak had been alone in that house for so long and it feels so nice, to finally have someone there, to finally allow himself to have some company

Grimoire

After weeks of reading and researching I finally felt ready to start my full Grimoire with correspondences of the Craft. I found this awesome Owl notebook with a clasp, but didn’t like the inside. So I rebound it with black pages instead. I love how the white and gold pen looks on the black background.

Considering that I was scared to make mistakes I wrote everything on black paper in small portions. I then cut them out and stuck them in the book in a new order with non destructive tape. The pages you see in these images are final versions, but initially I had the flexibility to move the loose bits around till I found my perfect layout.

It also occured to me that witches in environments hostile to the craft could use this method in extreme emergencies. If someone insists on going through your things, you can temporarily pull the pieces that contain the correspondences out and keep them in a safe place, till you can stick them back. All the reader would see would be the decorative imagery that can be seen as Artistic meanderings. Once checked, people usually don’t come back to check again. Alternatively you can just hide the notebook, lol.

I am pleased with the result and will add more to this book in the weeks to come.

Making videos in 2011

Suddenly remembered how I used to make video in like 2011

It was a mess

Whenever I showed a still image in Movie Maker, the colors came out distorted. Reds became Magenta. Yellow turned dark yellow. Blue became baby Blue.

Which is why early Pan Drawings were blue. Since it was the least distorted.

I recorded with a crummy PS3 USB mic. Often it would make click sounds if I moved my head too much. Often I had to record and rerecord 1 sentence at a time.

Windows Movie Maker could only have 1 audio track to edit at a time. So I had to render the video with no background music, import that into Windows Movie Maker, and add music on top.

Eventually got a cheap install CD for Pinacle Studio video editing. It wasn’t very good for my 2006 PC laptop. It would render a minute of video and say “Not enough RAM sorry :/” and just give me part of a video. Used that process until 2013 when I got Premire Pro and a “hand me down” Mac.

I pieced together the parts in Windows Movie Maker

The preview showing what I edited would always lag and I had to often guess what I was looking at.

To get footage of Powerpuff Girls or Ed Edd n Eddy, I would use Netflix snail mail to get 1 disk at time to rip them. Or Screen capture  them off PS3 Netflix streaming and hope the footage didn’t get all blury from my slow internet. Now theres iTunes rips for that stuff

My USB Snowball mic was grabage. Had to constantly manually alter the sound levels so everything was even. XLR mics like my AT2020 and Audiobox don’t need that.

Did all that for like 3 or 4 years

But now thankfully the process is far more streamlined and I know how to handle many of the editing problems far more efficiently.


Health care access 

“I’ve been a big supporter of Planned Parenthood. To me they’re such an important and critical thing for American health care that I want to do whatever I can for them. As a Canadian, health care wasn’t a thing for me that you would have to pay for or think about. When I moved here I went to Planned Parenthood because I needed to go see a doctor. I had the most pleasant experience that, when I left, I actually called my dad sobbing. I told him what happened, and how nice, and polite, and everything they were with me. At that point I was making no money as an artist, so I could have not afforded getting tests. It needs to be something that stays.”

In honor of International Women’s Day, we are posting quotes from our latest Creative New York interview with Petra Collins, highlighting issues relating to body image, openness, collaboration, and health care access as an artist. Read the entire interview at nyc.moma.org.

Join us on 3/18 for MoMA PopRally’s Petra Collins: In Search of Us, an evening of performance, music, and digital art conceived and developed by Collins and artist Madelyne Beckles. Tickets and more info at mo.ma/poprallyxpetra

[Portrait of Petra Collins by Nguan]

Listen Luke Garroway is so important. Because I’m going to be very frank with you most adult African American males are casted into roles where they are seen as stoic, angry, intimidating, etc.

And here you have Luke who breaks every one of those. Who basically decided to help raise a little girl. A little girl who had to have reminded him so much of everything that was taken away. Because while Clary is the spitting image of Jocelyn she is Valentines daughter. That charisma, the stubbornness and stead fast belief in doing what they think is right, the ability to move the world from wherever they stand those are all of Valentines best traits shining within Clary. Those are all the reasons Luke loved him. And Luke had to see her grow up everyday and remind him more of Val and what he used to have and how he was forsaken.But it didn’t matter he loved that little girl because it was the best of both of his best friends in one body.

But his love doesn’t stop there. Here comes Simon who is completely unrelated to him outside of being Clary’s best friend. And once again how many parents (Especially fathers) don’t even know their kids best friends outside of the fundamental details? The good majority. Oh, but not Luke Garroway. Luke saw a small boy who felt alone, who lost his father and he said I’ll help in whatever way I can. I’ll love him and I’ll protect him as if he were my own.

Luke Garroway has such an overwhelming capacity to love. He’s such an amazing symbol of what a great man is. And we’re just so blessed to have him.

anonymous asked:

I'm kinda new to writing nsfw stuff, and my story will have sexual scenes, do you have any tips for writing mature stuff?

Hmmm. It’s difficult to give tips on writing sex scenes because everyone’s style is different, but I’ll do my best. 

  • Have a scene in mind. Have a good mental image of what is happening. That way, when someone moves or they want to switch positions, you know how it’s going to happen. You want your readers to know what’s going on, so you need to as well. 
  • Draw on your own experience. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had sexual partners or not - even if you’ve only had sexual experiences with yourself, use that to help inform what you’re writing. What feels good? What do you like?
  • Try to stay away from cliches. That isn’t to say they don’t have their place, but you’ll sacrifice originality if your whole sex scene is just a mash of cliches. ((Side note: As for dirty talk, sure it’s really hot, sure it’s easy to write, but don’t feel like you have to add it just because you want dialogue.))
  • Euphemisms have their place. Don’t be afraid to use euphemisms (eg. hard shaft) when the tone of the sentence demands it. But also, don’t be afraid to use more direct words as well (eg. penis, vagina). 
  • Don’t be afraid to write it. If you’re tentative about it, or are worried how it’ll turn out, then it’ll come across in your writing. Be confident - you’ll do fine.

tldr: Just go for it. Write what you like and readers will like it too.

I shot this portrait of Mads back in 2000 when he was starting out out as an actor. He was very dedicated and willing to experiment with different techniques that I suggested. I wanted a dramatic concept that illustrated Mads’ wild and intense spirit. My idea was to have the branches behind him moving vigorously to create a storm like effect. Mads’ 7 year old daughter helped out by pulling strings we had attached to branches behind him which gave the image a very intense atmosphere! I love when you can create a lot with very little!
