The series of interviews conducted by Dr. George Henry with lesbians in the ‘30s illustrates a contentment in the lives of many of these women that would have frazzled the censors had that picture been reflected in the media. Many of his interviewees were self-actualized individuals, living to their full potential in mutually productive relationships. They say things such as:
“I’m doing the work [as an editor] I always wanted to do and I’m very, very happy. I’m very much in love with the girl too. We click… She has had the most influence for good in my life.”
— 20-year old white woman
“If I were born again I would like to be just as I am. I’m perfectly satisfied being a girl and being as I am. I’ve never had any regrets.”
— 26-year-old black woman
“Our relationship is just as sweet now [after eleven years] as in the beginning.”
— 29-year-old white woman
“Since we have been living together our lives are fuller and happier. We create things together and we are devoted to our [adopted] baby.”
— 30-year-old white woman
“I have a great confidence in the future. I think I’m going to be a very well-known artist… Homosexuality hasn’t interfered with my work. It has made it what it is.”
— 30-year-old white woman

Episode 89! Big drama, quick action, shit not sorted out!
Such quick action, actually, I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a long time, and recap a whole episode at once. BUCKLE UP!
Malik is being a total unreasonable emotionally-abusive foolish SHITHEAD right now. I am so disappointed in him. He stops Rishid from WINNING to tell him he has to take the massive risk of playing the Fake Ra card because Malik just sort of wants him to and, to make him do it, he dangles the one thing Rishid will carve his own face off for…
This is a LOW BLOW you lying little shit, go sit in the corner and sort your shit out.
“I am so aroused right now.”
This ridiculous Monster swap, trading Mr Scorpion for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Actually The Avatar Of A God, turns out to be even more pointless than you might expect:
ICBINTAOAG has the same ATK as Mr Scorpion did! It inherits the ATK of the Monsters sacrified to summon it (Mr Scorpion counted as three Monsters bc it had eaten three Monsters. Yes, I think that’s bullshit too, but on the scale of the bullshittitude perpetrated this episode, it barely registers.)
Malik is delighted.
I think it proves you’re a manipulative little dillweed, but hey, it’s nice to know Malik’s ravings support my theory that Rishid was some kind of nephew or something.
Meanwhile, in her room, Isis divines what is about to happen and mentally warns Rishid that he’s about to mistake. “Mentally” here meaning “in her own head”, not “telepathically”, sadly.
Well maybe show the hell up next time instead of sitting in your room by yourself watching through your haunted jewellery. Then you could have warned him for real and maybe he would have listened! Like seriously, Isis, sort your shit out.
But she isn’t there and Rishid calls his attack and Malik’s Duel Disk FREAKS THE FUCK OUT
Yes, incredibly, just like EVERY OTHER TIME THEY USED A FAKE RA CARD, they have angered the actual real God known as Ra who makes their displeasure known through the age-old tried-and-true Zeus-favoured method of Precision Lightning Headshots.
Seems a bit harsh to ALSO lightning Jounouchi, but in Ra’s defense, Jounouchi didn’t get hit until he approached Rishid.
Everyone freezes in shock, except Honda, who runs forward to climb onto the dueling platform (but does immediately stop when Isono asks him to, even though, for all he knows, his friend is dead or dying…)
(Yami’s ADORABLE shocked face distracted me for a while, but try to tear your eyes away to appreciate Otogi’s horror-blah too!)
Tournament Organiser, Tournament Sponsor Company CEO, and yet somehow also Competitor, Seto Kaiba, tells everyone not to worry!
… this STRONGLY implies that there IS a fatal level though. It is a CARD GAME DEVICE, Seto. Sort your SHIT out.
Isono wants to end the duel and disqualify both competitors for “being unconscious during the duel”, which does seem a little harsh but on the other hand has the massive benefit of freeing the unconscious duelists up for some highly necessary medical attention, but Kaiba Walking-Health-And-Safety-Disaster Seto has a better idea!
Literally, let’s stand here for five more minutes and see if either of them get better or die. These two people just got HIT BY FUCKIN LIGHTNING, this is NOT a suitable tie-breaker. It’s a goddamn CARD GAME, the secondary win-lose criteria should NEVER BE “well let’s see if the electrocution sends either of them into cardiac arrest”. SORT YOUR SHIT OUT, SETO.
… HOW does he EVER get insurance to cover ANYTHING??
The Nerd Herd start yelling at Jounouchi to wake up.
Except Yami who stares in consternation elsewhere? Apparently at Rishid? Maybe he’s in denial about Jounouchi potentially being seriously hurt?
Isis has another worry than merely losing a brother to godly-lightning-attack…
And Rishid is the one who keeps the other!Malik at bay, so if he’s killed in a tragic card-game accident…
This is where things kind of fall apart for me, suspense-wise. Like I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to be rooting for Jounouchi, and I certainly don’t want him to die or anything, but Rishid’s reasons for needing to get up and carry on are SO much better??? This isn’t Duelist Kingdom, where Jounouchi needed the prize money to save his sister’s eyesight. He’s literally in this tournament because he likes this dumb card game and it seemed like fun. He wants to do well and duel Yugi/Yami, but #spoileralert he ends up doing that after the tournament is over and that’s fine, so it’s totally not necessary for him to win here. He wants to get back up and continue the duel … so that he can duel his friend at some point.
wants to get back up and continue the duel because he knows he’s the only one standing between Malik and the violent alternate-personality waiting to break free and use Malik’s body, and he’s haunted by memories of Malik’s descent into darkness after being tortured by his own father as a child, which Rishid couldn’t save him from.
He literally dreams he dozed off in class, then falls over his desk and has a little chat with his friends.
He does have a sweet moment where he acknowledges that he no longer wants to be that rash, aggressive guy who gets into fist fights all the time, because…
He feels, in the dream, heavy and tired and asks for his friends to help him up…
So friendship wins out over family and duty and Jounouchi stands up while Rishid falls. This fits with the “friendship heck yeah” theme of the series, but … idk. They explicitly framed this as “who is more determined to win this duel” and it reeeeeeally seems like it would be Mr If I Don’t Win My Precious Younger Brother Will Lose His Mind Maybe Forever and not Mr It’d Be Real Nice To Duel Yugi I Guess.
Anyway, it happens and Jounouchi’s up, but kinda dazed and not sure where he is.
HE GOT HIT BY FUCKING LIGHTNING LIKE FOUR MINUTES AGO, LADY, WHAT THE FRESH HELL, MAYBE SORT YOUR SHIT OUT
And Kaiba’s characteriscally-but-forgetfully derisive
oh my sweet precious fleeting grip on sanity it was yoUR GODDAMN IDIOT IDEA. YOU. YOUUUUUUUU. SHIT. SORT. NOW. PLEASE.
Speaking of fleeting grips on sanity, Jounouchi and Yami go to help Rishid but he’s like “lol don’t mind me, it’s Malik you gotta watch out for cause he’s about to flip the fuck out Disassociative Identity Disorder style”
And they’re like, legit, “Gasp! Namu is Malik?? The only other person on the blimp???” #sortyourshitout
And Malik FINALLY - cause you know he rehearses this in the mirror right? right. - gets to be all like “YES, IT IS I, MALIK! AHAHA”
But then tragically, like 67 seconds later, he becomes the very Malik they have not been fighting this whole time but instead becomes the Malik they will henceforth be fighting…

$20 (This is an old art also btw, I’ve gotten better!)

So if you are interested, please message me here, and if you know anyone who might be please pass this along, Please reblog to help me get the word out!
stop trying to destroy Villainous/Villanos because of one storyboarder, and stop saying that they created the show
Lemonflowertea was a very popular artist once on tumblr, known for their edgy offensive humor and fucked up stories and art. A lot of the fucked up shit they did was when they themselves were a teenager, and while incredibly gross, isn’t the legal definition of pedophilia. At it’s least offensive, it was teenage edgeliness to the extreme (think any story you read in dA featuring rape and sexual assault as plot devices and Mary Sue tragic back stories). At it’s worst, it was legitimate porn drawn by a minor of characters who were minors. Idk about American or Mexican law on the matter, but I do believe that is illegal.
Yes, they were fucked up, and that is fucked up.
But they aren’t the creator of the show, and I have a feeling they definitely weren’t showing people who were hiring them their blog when it was titled with the word “faggot”
As for the scam, that’s more complicated, and honestly nothing compared to this above
But they aren’t the creator of the mini series. It’s bad that they’re there, but they aren’t the one who made it. They are simply boarding the art and will probably only be there for a while, because storyboarders are often rotated and shifted out.
The creator is a nice man, who most likely isn’t controlling who’s the ones assigned to his team. Or even if he is, I doubt he knows. Just cause they seem like they’re both on tumblr, doesn’t mean he’s done digging like that.
Villanos is not the creation of a bad person. And honestly, the reaction to a story boarder and not a creator being the issue for this show is striking to me, because another show, Clarence, wasn’t called for boycott when its creator sexually assaulted a coworker. He /was/ immediately fired of course, but why is that show more likable than this one, when it was tainted from day one by that creator?
If you really want think that the storyboarder is what’s ruined the show for you, that’s fine. Don’t watch, that’s fine. If you think you have to call up Cartoon Network and ask why they’re employed there after those actions, that’s fine. Hell, even get them /fired/ if you think it has to happen, that’s fine. But don’t tear down the work of a multitude individuals because one person is the spawn of Satan unless you know they’re willing to let it slide
so i kinda have this headcanon/au type thing where a few of the objects have music jams and play songs. the other objects come to watch them. they usually do it at night and sit around a campfire.
ok so tissues can play guitar. he’s still learning how, but despite being sick 24/7, he has an amazing singing voice. its hard for him to sing, but he pulls through. he really loves all kinds of music.
fan can sing ok, but he’s better at playing ukulele. he saw some emo group that has ukeleles (like twenty one pilots) so he decided to find lessons on youtube, bc hes a huge fanboy. he really likes those indie bands that are really popular and he thinks they’re “"real music”“
lightbulb has a random pair of bongo drums, and she thinks they’re really fun. sometimes she can’t keep rhythm though, and ppl get mad when she drums randomly, and they have to calm her down. she can also sing and rap some pretty LIT rhymes. her music taste is really random and she likes a variety of things.
paintbrush actually likes to sing, but they’re pretty nervous about singing in front of people, but lightbulb always encourages them to join the music group, and painty ends up enjoying themself a lot. paintbrush likes older music.
marshmallow really loves singing, but can also play recorder. its the only instrument she can play bc she learned in elementary school. apple gave it to her as a gift :3 she can play pretty well. marshmallow really likes upbeat pop music and love songs and always writes really gay songs for apple
apple loves to play the triangle, even though she doesn’t know what triangle means. she occasionally sings, but she plays the triangle more. she found it lying around hotel oj. soap can play guitar and sing. she has been doing music since she was a little kid, so she’s pretty good. apple still likes kids music and only knows the kidzbop versions of songs.
mepad can sing extremely well. he’s actually a slightly well known musical artist. his singing voice is very soft and gentle. he usually sings calming songs and is good at backup vocals as well.
soap has been doing music since she was five years old. she’s really good at playing guitar. she and microphone really like the beatles and usually do songs by them. soap practices guitar and singing a lot, and she’s very perfectionistic about it.
microphone plays bass guitar, and she sings pretty well too. sometimes she sings too loud so people sometimes get mad about that. when she sings, she’s very good at projecting her voice, and people choose to follow along with her if they don’t know a song.
sometimes mephone and toilet sing as well. they on,y come occasionally though. the other contestants come as well, but they usually just watch.
so ther you have it!! my inanimate insanity music au
“Style is the answer to everything. A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art” - Charles Bukowski
The tenth house is a favorable position for beautiful Venus. The individual is well received by people and scatters a petal dewdrop residue, like his warmth and charm is just so inviting and pleasant. There tends to be a great love for humanity and the need to leave a lasting image in the changing world. He forms good relationships in business and has a tremendous way with people. His charisma and acute sense of foretelling opportunities mean he can ascend in any professional field. Venus is concerned with appearances, so it is possible the individual always seeks to be well dressed and dapper. Maybe he is known for his eye for design and style. He may also use his attractive image to charm his way to the top.
There are great ideals for society, and maybe dreams of utopia. No matter what, he always believes that fundamentally people are decent and good human nature will prevail. The need for recognition will be high, and he attains great delight in receiving compliments and being widely acknowledged. The tenth house relates to the public image and reputation, profession, public life, and our success story. Venus is very artistic and exquisite. Maybe the individual is well known for his creativity or image, like his artwork, dancing, acting, or youtube clips. Despite the individual’s open hearted and disarming public profile, he may still remain a very quiet and mysterious character. He is capable of seeming relateable from a million miles away. There may also be a bit of a facade. Maybe he wears a mask amongst people because he is afraid his true self will be rejected.
The tenth house concerns the dominant parent. Because Venus is tranquil, one of the parents is likely gentle, popular, and somewhat of a socialite. There tends to be amorous relationships with both parents. Maybe the mother could have high expectations for her daughter’s appearance. The tenth house Venus person is one you could find standing encircled by a crowd of admiring onlookers while he sips champagne and bedazzles. He approaches his professional responsibilities with great pride and puts his heart into his endeavors. There are a lot of dreams to be accomplished and a sense of notoriety that can be developed. While he may not always be concerned with fame, there will be a tremendous need to diffuse a divine and pleasing image to the world. There is captivation and the breath of love, a Venus majesty crowned with midheaven jewels.
POV: Reader Pairing: Jay Park (AOMG) x Reader Rating: G Comments: I still have two night shifts to do and my brain is mildly blegh right now, plus I’m watching Shrek which we all know is what you need playing in the background when you write. Hopefully it still turned out alright. c:
Summary: “Can I get a Jay Park scenario? where u are a very known artist in the
state and you happen to know his mother,and you’re very close until one
day she finally takes you out to meet her son and you find out that it’s
jay and you just kiss each other and u are so happy, but she felt
disappointed that no one of u told her cuz she took you as a daughter
and he is her son.., after that you consol her and he sees how how
amazing you are and he just says in front of everyone that he loves u
fluff pls♡♡” - leyarren
Summary: As he steps inside his workplace,
he notices how the dark clouds and bright sky fell over her features and made
her look simple but cute. At that moment, he realizes that he needed to talk to
her and that he needed to use the excuse of ‘getting some air’ more often.
mostly precious, leading to stories that will be remembered in the middle of
the road when one is having a runaway, hands on the steering wheel and hair
flowing with the wind. If she said that relationships weren’t important for
her, then she would be lying. The feeling of someone’s fingers wrapped around
yours, lips over the others and laughter resounding around the place was
something she craved for, almost like everyone else, for a long time she had
thought that it would come her way as she waited, but as she gets older she
wonders if the clock just stopped suddenly and she’s still waiting or if she
was going to end up all alone without much thought. It’s like love has ended
without even starting, as if she created a character in her head that was more
like a prince than anything else but it didn’t get written. Her fairytale was
long forgotten and there wasn’t anything she could do, she could only cross her
arms and watch romantic movies to stop the beating of her heart.
She thought that
princes stopped existing when she turned an adult, but she felt like it could
be true as she looked at the man that was in front of the camera. His blondish
hair was in bangs over his forehead, wearing a sweater and skinny jeans to
create an effortless look as he smiled softly at the celebrity in front of him,
holding hands with her for the mere script that was written as she recorded the
two of them. Kim Jongin, a very well known artist that created everything with
his hard work and she was only a camera girl, waiting for someone like him,
with a smile that could light up the entire world, if not the universe. He was
a prince, a very casual one that was good at dancing, but one nonetheless.
And it was absolutely
her fault, much more when she accepted to work with a show called ‘we got married’. If
she wanted to be so far away from love, then she wouldn’t have accepted it, but
she couldn’t help but feel her heart racing when she sees how Jongin treats the
artist in front of him. Obviously, there weren’t feelings involved –or at
least, not that the staff knew, but she felt like it was such a beautiful way
to display love. It was all acting, but it looked effortlessly beautiful in a
She bites her bottom
lip as she looks at him, noticing that after the recordings he liked to have
something to eat, probably starving from the amount of work he had done. His
eyes settle upon hers as he stops looking at his phone and immediately he sends
a smile her way. It had been a few times since the two of them had talked, but
it was mostly based on work and how he was supposed to act in front of the
camera. He immediately gives her a bright smile, making her look down at her
food with a shy smile before she cleared her throat.
So one of my favorite artists (who is probably very well known in the YOI fandom) uploaded a new work today where Victor is carrying a drunken Yuuri up to his room and I couldn't help but think of your Rivals series and the Olympics banquet haha, thank you so much for your writing and if you haven't seen the art yet, it's by Gearous and there's two pictures :)
that’s so yoongi though, instead of having his first activity outside of BTS be a collaboration in the same way Namjoon does collabs, he chose to produce a song for a very talented artist and become more actively known in the industry for his producing skills. can’t wait til the rest of the world gives him the recognition his talent deserves.
Today, I fucked up... by ruining a $300,000 piece of art
I work at an art gallery, and sometimes move around very expensive art pieces. Well, last week I had a terrible ear infection that gave me vertigo. I called in sick, but my boss told me I had to come in. After taking a tremendous amount of medicine, I felt alright, as long as I didn’t stand, move, or breathe slightly.
My boss asked me to move a piece of art work, and I obliged because I’m an idiot. Not only did I have to move the artwork, but I had to put it up high on the wall because of the way we place our art. I had to get on a ladder and everything was fine until I started to get dizzy and dropped the canvas. The framing popped open, the glass shattered, and the canvas had a tear in it.
I was near tears and my boss runs in and starts freaking out. Although I work in a gallery, I had no idea what was and wasn’t expensive. This particular piece is worth $300k, and the artist, who is very well known, was loaning it to us.
I haven’t been to work since and my boss let me go home early that day. I wish she would have just let me take the day off.
TL;DR Boss forced me to go to work, I damage $300k worth of paint.
