i have a whole collection of it

anonymous asked:

You don't like the Jedi Order?

Oh boy, this is gonna be long.

I love the Jedi, but as individual people (except yoda) - but as a collective I hate them. If that makes sense. Because, like I love Obi Wan and Mace Windu and Kit Fisto and Ki-Adi-Mundi and Luminara. 

They’re just problematic. Like I get that they’re trying to do good (I guess), but the whole “no attatchments/ no emotions” thing is messed up. I get what they mean by that? Like your emotions can cloud your judgement, but emotions are a natural part of living so like, yeah you have them and you shouldn’t try to not have them. 

Also, your emotions make you do what you think is right. Right???

tbqh, it might just be the fact that yoda is the grandmaster that I don’t like the council/jedi order. I mean, in one of the EU books that takes place right after Attack of the Clones, Obi-Wan wanted to be Anakin’s friend but Yoda was like “A master, Anakin needs. Not a friend.” (or some shit like that). And this makes me really angry??? Because literally, Anakin needed a friend - or a father type figure. Not a master. Like……

Like, if the jedi council wouldn’t have been so anti attatchments, Anakin probably wouldn’t have turned to the darkside. He would have felt like he could talk to the council about his vision of Padme - instead of going to Sheev the Skeev. But instead, the Jedi Council wouldn’t tell Anakin anything, so they destroyed his trust.

Also, the whole “it’s the will of the force thing?” They let bad things happen? Cuz it’s the will of the force?? This isn’t right???

Obviously I’m talking about Old Reublic Jedi Order. Idk much about the Jedi that Luke builds.

Because I realized I didn’t have any pictures of my whole collection, here.

Now I know most people would stop here but I want to talk about my deads more so too bad

First up are the three amigos; whit.etai.l dee.r antlers. The shed ones were found in the woods, the ones with the skulls still attached were sort of hand-me-downs from my granparents to my dad to me. By that I mean I found them in the garage and my dad said I could keep them.

A pair of black bea.r front paws that were given to me by my gramps. The be.ar’s name is Oscar and the rest of him is at Gramps’ house. The gray f.ox tails were both from Texas, and the top on Gramps hunted. The other one was bought for me from my dad.

The two that are currently “in process”, Peaches the ca.t skull-in the jar-and Tucker the chipm.unk in the bright orange box. 

Peaches is my stinky little baby, and she was found in the woods behind the school my brother Max used to go to about 8 or 9 years ago and then sat on Max’s dresser looking cool for about 3 years. After I got into Vulture Culture I decided to clean the last bits of mummified flesh stuck to her and HOO BOY it has been a Journey. She was named Peaches because she’s macerating in a peach jar.

Tucker isn’t as exciting: our fat cat caught him either late September or early October and he’s been in the duck-taped shut box ever since. The original plan was to have his skin AND his skull but at this point I’m probably only going to get his skull. He got the name Tucker because of… Reasons.

Onto my Biggest Boy, John Snowbutt. He’s a white colored fallo.w d.eer, and his skin is the thing everything else has been sitting on. He was brought down by my Gramps on Dec. 27 2015 and his skull and skin were given to me as a gift. We also got venison from him, I think stew meat, steaks, and a few other things I don’t remember. His name is John Snowbutt because he’s all white and he kept turning his butt to Gramps on the hunt and now I get to make ‘Deer John’ jokes. I usually just call him Snowbutt.

Glamour shot of Snowbutt because this one looked really cool

it is officially the last night of spring break, since tomorrow is a school night and doesn’t count. in this week, I 1) scrubbed my entire house clean, 2) pracitqué y mejoré mi español, 3) bought my cat a CAT TREE that she refuses to sit on because I think she believes it’s structurally unsound, 4) finished justified, a thing I have been putting off for a year, 5) COOKED A WHOLE LOT, and finally 6) wrote some stuff.

Here are some pictures of some of the pleasing things I did for myself:

WALL OF RAW: 

MUSEUM-Y DISPLAY CASE OF JEWELRY THAT I GOT AT GOODWILL FOR THREE DOLLARS, AND AM EXTRA HAPPY ABOUT BECAUSE I DIDN’T REALIZE HOW MUCH IT WOULD MAKE MY JEWELRY SEEM LIKE THE COLLECTION OF A CATHOLIC NATURALIST UNTIL I HAD IT LAID OUT LIKE THIS: 

 MAP OF THE MOON: 

I’ve seen a lot of videos going around of urban-dwelling critters coming to humans for help with various problems, ranging from boxes stuck on their heads to young trapped down a storm drain, and it’s gotten me to thinking:

On the one hand, it’s kind of fascinating that they know to do that.

On the other hand, setting any questions of how this sort of behaviour must have arisen aside for the nonce, does it ever strike you how weird it is that we’ve got a whole collection of prey species whose basic problem-solving script ends with the step “if all else fails, go bother one of the local apex predators and maybe they’ll fix the problem for no reason”?

I’m probably not the first person to come up with this but….Trans girl Stephanie??

- Sportacus would be so supportive and proud of her and would help her when she’s coming out to all her friends

- “I’d like to introduce you to Stephanie! She wants to be called Stephanie now, and she wants you to use she/her pronouns!”

- when it comes to coming out to her uncle she’s very nervous but Sportacus is by her side the whole time and it actually goes very well

- Sportacus would try to help her cut her hair and try to help her pick out some dresses but fashion isn’t this man’s forte.

- so he takes her to Robbie and he’s like STEP BACK, SPORTAFLOP. I GOT THIS

- and he just spends the whole day pampering her and using all these gizmos to style her hair and he digs through his massive collection of disguises to find some dresses for her

- both Sportacus and Robbie have different ways of teaching Stephanie how to deal with transphobic people. Sportacus says you should try to educate them or just stay away from them, and Robbie says you should crush your enemies with your amazing fashion sense and how you’re so much better than everyone else.

- two supportive dads helping their trans daughter I love it

MODELS OWN

Models Own are renown for their super cute nail polish stands, inhabited by an array colours that would put the biggest double rainbow to shame!
But the company is rapidly becoming known for much more than nail polish… Models Own have recently expanded and opened their first flagship store in Westfield Shopping Centre (Stratford, London) and filled it with a whole host of makeup products in a variety of stunning collections!! 
This week I received some of their latest products and they are simply amazing! 

Pictured above are 4 of their Luxestick lipsticks which come in 3 different finishes: 
Creamy Matte - available in 5 shades 
Velvet - available in 10 shades 
Matte - available in 10 shades

I have two lipsticks in a Matte finish (pictured left) and two in the Velvet finish (pictured right). 
Here are the swatches in both natural daylight and under mobile flash. You can see that the product stay true to the shade of the lipstick bullet even under the flash. Their staying power is fantastic and I had to use an oil-based remover to get them off my arm. 

Each Luxestick Lipstick retails at £7.99, but Models Own have an offer online and in-store during February where you can get a free Luxestick lipstick when you spend £10 or more. You just need to add the code LUXE10 at the checkout.

Next up are Models Owns ‘Colour Chrome Eyeshadow Kits’. When I popped in store a couple of weeks back the girls swatched these for me and I was absolutely blown away by the pigment pay-off! Much like the lipstick, I had to remove the swatches with an oil-based remover as they would not budge!

The kit comes with a little mixing tray, a primer liquid and the metallic eyeshadow. Again, 10 shades are available in this collection and I have 3 of them to show you. 
The consistency is very creamy and it glides on with ease using your finger or a brush. It’s a thick medium and a little goes a long, so you can use the primer to dilute the cream but I feel the thickness adds to the intense metallic pay-off.

I have swatched the eyeshadow straight from the pot on the left, and on the right I have mixed the eyeshadow with a tiny amount of the primer. If you use too much you get more of a wishy-washy pay-off so bare that in mind.
Personally, I don’t really see the point of the primer. There wasn’t any obviously contrast with and without the primer (unless you use too much) and it lasted just the same without.
I think it’s phenomenal all on it’s own! I will definitely be stocking more of these in my kit. 

Each Colour Chrome Kit retails at £14.99

The last three swatches I have to show you are from the MyShadow Cream Eyeshadow Collection. Once more there are 10 beautiful shades available in this range. 
Just to clarify incase you thought I had swatched the same shade twice, I happened to chose 2 almost identical eyeshadows from this assembly. I’m quite surprised by how similar they are, in my opinion I think one should have been a bit deeper or brighter in tone to differentiate the two. 

The MyShadow Cream Eyeshadows are less shiny than the Colour Chrome pots, but still have a gorgeous shimmery glow. The consistency is creamy with a smooth finish compare to the thick finish of the Chrome pots, and would go on the eyes best with your finger rather than using a brush. 

Each pot retails at £6.99

Overall, I am a massive fan of these products and I am excited by what Models Own have produced for us thus far! They have hit the floor running and I look forward to seeing AND trying more from them throughout 2017! 

Let me know if you have tried any of the Models Own makeup and what you think?

Rap Monster x Jin 

Q: Favorite spot? 

Rap Monster: The studio at our company. I display the Bearbricks I like on one side of the wall. But recently I run out of places to display them so I’m putting them in my room.
Jin: He has quite a lot. (laughs)
Rap Monster: I didn’t understand why people collect things before, but now…
Jin: You have a lot right (laughs). My favorite spot is the meat restaurant near our company! I like meat the most.
Rap Monster: Come to think of it, last time when we went to eat meat together, they ran out of beef brisket so he ordered…
Jin: A whole beef set! I ate everything!
Namjoon: Jin-hyung grilled the meat for us.
Jin: It’s a basic if you like meat. 

Q: If you were to sing a song to the girl you like? 

Jin: Indeed, if I sing “Awake” to her, she would like it. If I look at her in the eyes and sing “Wide awake~ Wide awake~”…
Rap Monster: (laughs)
Jin: Why do you laugh!?
Rap Monster: I was thinking about how you chose your own song (laughs)
Jin: So what will you sing?
Rap Monster: I would naturally call her to the park or to the river side, sit together on the bench and hum…
Jin: (looking at Rapmon like he’s regretting) And then you’ll sing “Reflection” right.
Rap Monster: My song’s a little bit embarrasing (laughs). I’ll sing “A Little Girl”. (T/N: the OST of “Reply 1988”)
Jin: What if the girl runs away?
Rap Monster: If that’s so… If I got to express my love, then I’m satisfied. 

Jimin x V x Jungkook 

Q: Phone wallpaper? 

Jimin: Mine is BTS’ photo. I like photos with all of us. My wallpaper right now is the photo we took when filming for the VCR of the fanmeeting in Korea (T/N: Muster). It was the photo taken at a concert before but I changed recently.
V: (showing his phone screen) Jjajan! Chet Baker!!
Jungkook: Mine is all black.
Jimin & V: Just black?
Jungkook: Wait a minute. (bringing his phone and show the screen) Look.
Jimin & V: It’s real! 

Q: If you were to sing a song to the girl you like? 

V: It’s not my song but… Trumpeter Chet Baker’s “I Fall In Love Too Easily”. There’s a movie based on this song (T/N: “Born To Be Blue”), I want to tell that kind of story and recommend the song to that girl.
Jimin: That’s cool~ I’ll make a song for the one I like.
Jungkook: Me too! I haven’t written lyrics for a girl up until now, but if it’s the person I like, I think I can do it.
Jimin: How the song would come out depends on that person, and I wouldn’t know how it would come out until I write it. My ideal type is someone who is likable, someone who makes me want to keep being together. (shy) 

Q: Something you want to challenge with this year? 

V: I’ll aim to be an acting-dol! The Korea drama “Hwarang” I appeared in will soon be broadcasted in Japan, please watch it. Just watch me only!
Jimin: “Watch me only” (laughs). I want to travel with my family or friends~
Jungkook: That’s good too. I want to debut as a professional bowling player.
Jimin & V: ??
Jungkook: I have been learning from a teacher since November last year, and my score went up to 240.
Jimin: 3 months ago he did even worse than me…
Jungkook: Hmm?! Did I? 

Suga x J-hope 

Q: If you were to sing a song to the girl you like? 

J-hope: I’ll sing Ai Otsuka’s “Sakuranbo”. I have been liking this song since long before. The lyrics overflows with love so the song’s atmosphere is bright and it matches my personality. I’ll prepare a lorry that will turn into a stage when opening the door, then say “It’s an event!” and sing a song only for that girl.
Suga: I think I would say “You can just come to the concert”.
J-hope: What…?!
Suga: I don’t go to the karaoke, and I rarely sing except for when performing on stage. I’ll say it’s because I make music.
J-hope: Okay… 

Q: Something you want to challenge with this year? 

J-hope: I want to travel to Japan~
Suga: Mine is going to the gym, since I’m not doing anything. I don’t think I can keep going like this.
J-hope: In terms of music, I want to make and release a mixtape this year. And I want to grow as a rapper too.
Suga: I think I have to make many good songs this year too. We have an overseas tour this year, so I’ll work hard so BTS can receive love from more people. 

Q: Phone wallpaper? 

Suga: (showing his phone) This one.
J-hope: Wow, all black!!
Suga: I have never cared about wallpapers.
J-hope: Mine is my favorite artist!
Suga: Who?
J-hope: Who was it… (laughs)
Suga: Didn’t you say it’s your favorite artist?
J-hope: I suddenly forgot (laughs). Ah ah, Frank Ocean! But it’s been the same thing for half a year so I want to change it now.
Suga: But it’s your favorite artist?
J-hope: It’s my mood. Selca is a little bit embarrased so…

2. Kissing // Nurseydex

« {Part 2 of my Valentine’s collection.} »

a/n: this is loosely inspired by that scene from the webcomic Always Raining Here because i read the whole thing a couple of nights ago and let me tell you, there were feelings. enjoy!

“Eat shit, Nurse,” Dex said, taking another swig of his beer. “I told you that you didn’t stand a chance.”

“No fair, man. I totally would have won if you hadn’t blue-shelled me there at the end,” Nursey grumbled. He set down the Wii remote and got to his feet, trying to figure out how drunk he was. No dizziness or major balance fuckery, it seemed, but his head definitely felt kinda fuzzy. Now was probably a good time to start chugging some water; he still had homework to do later. He went to fish his water bottle out of his backpack.

“I only blue-shelled you because you blue-shelled me the last lap,” Dex said. “I won that fair and square.”

“Psh. If I were sober—”

“Dude, you only had three shots. You’re 6’2”. You’re fine.”

“Yeah, but you only had, like, a beer and a half, so between the two of us, I’m definitely the more impaired one here.”

Dex rolled his eyes. “Just admit I won. Stop being such a sore loser.”

“Well maybe you’re a sore winner.”

“I know you’re an English major, but ‘sore winner’ is not a thing.”

Nursey shook his head in mock outrage. “You come into my house—”

“Your house? This is my dorm room, Nurse,” Dex laughed. “You’re in my dorm room, playing on my Wii, drinking my alcohol.”

“…Touché,” Nursey admitted, returning to his spot next to Dex on Dex’s couch. He was probably sitting a little closer to Dex than was strictly necessary. He could try to blame the shots for that, but like Dex said, he was a 200-pound hockey player. Three shots of Fireball spaced out over the last hour really wasn’t much for someone his size. If he hadn’t been a city boy with no driver’s license, he could probably still legally drive.

The real problem, Nursey thought as he glanced at Dex out of the corner of his eye, wasn’t the alcohol—it was his stupid crush on his attractive yet probably tragically straight teammate. But that wasn’t really something he liked to dwell on.

So I play at a local comic shop every Wednesday. There’s usually 3-4 table that have randomized players for each table every week. I play a Drow Bard named Valkyrie(yeah yeah. Not a great name). This is a collection of my favourite moments from the last 2 months.

Val: poor, stupid human.
Human Barbarian: no Wrack smart.
Val: says the man that took the false bottom of a chest and strapped it to his ass.
Barbarian: it was my bottom.

Half-Orc Paladin and Dwarf Cleric: *racing*
Val: *continues to fight the Giant badgers that appeared by making them cry to death*
-whole thing becomes a huge race-
Val: I’m surrounded by idiots.

Human Bard: heeeeey wanna be Bardies?
Val: what?
Bard: Bard Buddies.
Val: this is why I hate humans.

Elf Druid: if you tell me where this is… I’ll… I’ll marry you.
NPC: well….
Elf Druid(OOC): hey, could I use animal handling when seducing this guy?
DM: well… uh…. let me roll his intelligence to see… *rolls a 2* ….. yep. Go ahead.
Elf Druid: *rolls a nat 20 anyways*
NPC: RIGHT THIS WAY MISS

(Now this part is my favourite. Despite the tables being randomized, I somehow always end up at the same table as this one guy that plays a Monk of the Long Death… this is how it always goes with him)

Party: *encounters someone*
Monk: *has a look*
Val: Grimnaw, no.
Monk: Grimnaw, yes. *proceeds to kill most things*

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Why was Ryan in that trunk in the 1st place? Why did Ryan shoot /all/ those dudes? How did Phillip end up in foster care (like obviously because of his mom but like what were the circumstances)? Did it ever get officially reported that the deaths of Tommy, his girlfriend (Tracy?), and Anne were actually murders (I'm assuming yes in at least Anne's case since it took them a whole month to collect her possessions but)? What grade are these children even in at school? Do Philip and Lukas hang out at school now? Do they have mutual friends? Did Philip make some more friends? Are they out to these friends? Did they go to Anne's funeral together? Did they finally say "I love you"? How much of Philip's yellow couch story was true? Will there be a trial against Ryan or no since he's dead?

I hate to be a bother, but would you know where I can find free ebooks or something on witchcraft? I have looked and scoured site after site and I've read posts where people say you can, but I sure haven't found a single one. I'm new and not open, so I'm so lost.

Why yes! I actually have several Free PDFs I can give you that I’ve collected over the while!

All of these are, to my knowledge, still up and running! Enjoy these, I’ll add more if/when I find them!

!! I love how you write jelaous Jaehee!! RFA reacting to an overly affectionate friend of MC who has a crush on them and oversteps boundaries? Kisses on the cheek, long hugs. How would they deal with them? (omg that was long winded im so sorry)

  • despite his gullibility to Seven’s pranks, this does not go over his head
  • his jealous levels are too high
    • they even tried to DENY it right to his face
    • but those long lustful stares to his s/o is not acceptable!
  • almost each encounter with your friend, he smiles and acts normal but his eyes are like daggers
  • but one day 
  • one fucking day
  • you were just sitting talking with another friend while Yoosung and your friend was on each side of you

Jaehee

  • but just as you two were about to leave, someone knocked on your door
  • Jaehee went to go answer it while you were getting your coat from the closet
  • it was your friend with a bouquet of roses in their hand and they asked for you
  • gelato was starting to get a little frustrated
  • before she could say anything, you came in the doorway also confused
  • “Hey…um…MC, can we talk?”
  •  Jaehee just KNEW what they were about to say so just interrupted
    • “If you have something to tell MC, please tell them later. Now is not the time.”
  • you kind of wanted to say something back to Jaehee but this was kind of a shitty time 
  • you tell them that now was not the time and to come back tomorrow
  • you two had a very wonderful Valentine’s Day and Jaehee woke up early that morning to make breakfast for you
  • your friend came knocking at your door again 
  • this time she’s ready for it

  • out of gratitude, she sends them away with a short stack of pancakes

Zen

  • this marshmallow is freaking jealous of all your friends that are a little overly affectionate towards you
    • if you hug one of your friends for longer than 5 seconds he requests you give him longer hug
  •  oh but one of your friends LOVES to give you such long hugs
  • he just glares at them until they stop
  • at first he thought they were just being creepy 
  • but then he heard from one of your other chums that they actually like you a lot!
  • marshmallow is NOT happy to hear this NOT ONE BIT
  • WAR IS DECLARED
  • he compensates by giving you a nice warm hug before your friend does
  • one time your friend managed to slip in a hug and this marshmallow saw their hand slide down to your lower back
    • AAAAAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
  • FIRST Zen talks about this to you
    • he’s uncomfortable with the whole situation and your friend
  • and after you kind of agree he talks to your friend
  • kind of feels bad a bit because your friend has had a crush on you way before the two of you had met 
    • and Zen just kind of came into the picture
    • all magnificent and perfect
    • your friend never stood a chance
  • as angry as he is about this inappropriate behavior, he tries to be easy on your friend

Jumin

  • it didn’t take a rocket scientist to see that your friend you knew since high school had a huge crush on you
  • even the donut can see it
  • but he tries not to pay too much mind to it because he knew you were with him and were content
  • it wasn’t like your friend was a bad person either
  • they even told Jumin just to sort of clear the air
  • the conversation was actually quite tame and both parties were mature and understanding
  • but your friend was starting to get a little out of line
  • they would playfully hold your hand or touch your face
  • it made the donut all flustered
    • how dare they
  • then shit hit the fan so quick when your friend just staring at you as you were talking
  • Jumin was shaking his head
    • hoe don’t do it dON’T DO IT
  • then your friend gave you a peck on the lips 
  • you were taken aback and very confused
  • you awkwardly look to Jumin because yeah he was standing RIGHT there
  • he stood there staring at your friend
    • but it wasn’t just any stare
    • it was the stare of utter inimical anger
    • slowly seething
    • holy shit you’ve never seen him like this before
  • honestly it’s his first instinct to fire someone when they anger him this much, but your friend wasn’t working for him
  • so he just removed you from the situation while maintaining eye contact with your friend

  • you were so glad Seven got along well with your friends and vice versa
    • so many nightly hangouts ^^
  • but one of your shy smol friends had this huge crush on you
    • they liked to show it through lots of hugs or quick kisses on the cheek
  • you never really paid no mind to it you just thought they were naturally a touchy-feely person
  • but Seven was very uncomfortable with it
  • VERY
  • made the poor jellybean feel so insecure
  • at first he devised an elaborate master plan, Ocean’s 11 style to expose your friend for the true monster they are
    • but they were cleaner than a fresh pair of underwear
    • if anything it was incriminating they didn’t have ANY dirt on them
  • darn!
  • always turned away if your friend gave you a quick cheek kiss
  • eventually one day he thought enough was enough
  • when you and your friend was saying goodbye
  • Seven made sure to say goodbye first and planted a big smooch on your friend
  • O-O
  • your friend was shook
  • you were confused at first but it was pretty funny so you ended up laughing until you got a big smooch planted on your face
  • after that anytime your friend was going in for a cheek kiss, Seven would step in, prepared to give them a wet smooch if need be
  • eventually they stopped with that nonsense

The concept of personal worth is so alien to this society that Jasper just…can’t grasp it.  You getting corrupted isn’t sad because a potential tool is being lost; you getting corrupted is sad because you’re you.  That idea just…has no place in the perfect hierarchy the Diamonds have going.  To Gem society, your wants and needs and desires are Evil if they run counter to what is expected of you, if you choose not to fit into the neat little cogwheel they’ve set out for you in their society.  To them, you aren’t a person; you’re a thing, with only as much value as you have to the collective good of that society.

Steven, you need to topple this monstrosity.  You need to bring it down, for all the people like Pearl and Amethyst and Garnet and Jasper that are caged and enslaved to the idea that you’re only good for what you can do for the collective whole.

At least, I hope that’s what the show is building up to.

Leo Viv (In Progress)

This is a step-by-step setup of Kharjo’s (the leopard gecko) bioactive vivarium (still a work in progress).

First, gravel for a shallow drainage layer, and a basking rock placed directly on the glass, over the Under Tank Heater (UTH).

Next, I cut out a piece of black trash bag (clean), to prevent the soil from mixing in with the gravel and defeating the purpose of the drainage layer.

Then I poked holes in it, so it would still drain.

I added a thin layer of peat moss, to aid in drainage and to offer the plants some nutrients as it eventually breaks down.

Then I added the main substrate:
2 parts soil (which is primarily clay), that I collected from my yard and baked to sanitize.
1 part play sand
1 part peat moss

Finally, I added Aloe Vera, and some Sansevieria and created a dry and humid hide out of flat stones.
(I don’t have the whole cleaner crew yet, so it’s not exactly bioactive yet. So I spot-clean)

It’s still pretty basic, and would benefit from a nice 3D background, but that shall have to wait for another day.
