shinee will be beginning their final week of promotions for “1of1″ today with their third of four goodbye stages on music core. the show, which airs on mbc, will begin at roughly 3:45pm kst. [note: this sometimes varies depending on the show. sometimes broadcasts will start a tad bit earlier or later than scheduled so it’s usually best to turn on the stream ten or so minutes before the scheduled time, to be safe.] they will be performing “투명 우산 (don’t let me go)” and “1of1”. world time buddy can be easily used to see when the broadcast will be beginning in your time zone. remember to input seoul, south korea to get the proper timeline! streams can be found here.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any spare time in your life to help curious learners give some lessons on art? I mean, however bad you think you are in teaching others, you can still be some aid, at least by sharing what you experience during creating art

I dont really have time to do that, im sorry…  im not an art teacher, and i feel my experiences are of little value. so instead i hope this list of resources made by others can help you more than i can:

Art Youtube Channels:

Free Online Courses on a ton of subjects (including art!)


Inspiration & Stories:

Archives & Free Resources:






*“Art of” Books:

Remember, a resource post is nothing if you dont use it. You can watch videos and click links all day, but nothing replaces putting the time in to draw. You get best at what you do most. Draw the most, and you will get good at it. I promise.

good luck!!!

Five free things to do to help women directors

1. Make a request to purchase their work at your local library

I get it, not everyone can shell out $30-50 for a DVD of every rare movie they want to see. But you know who does have that kind of money? Your library. Hurry up and do it quickly though because libraries often will limit their collections to things that came out within the last year or two.

2. Check out their work from your local library 

Did you know that libraries pay royalties to the artists every time you check something out? Did you know that libraries are also a great way to find all those hard to find often out of print works that continue to become obscure as mediums shift. Did you throw out your old DVD player? Don’t have a blu-ray? No problem! Most libraries are now offering streaming video. As long as you have a library account you can now stream anything from Joanna Hogg to Chantal Akerman in good conscience.

3. Review their work

So many times I go to check out a movie on imdb, letterboxd or amazon and find nothing in the review section. Get in the habit of writing reviews for the stuff you like, even the stuff you don’t like telling people not to waste their time! Bad reviews have prompted me to write good ones to counter people’s opinions I thought were wrong. Good ones have helped me watch movies I might not otherwise have seen. I’ve also used reviews to give trigger warnings or to warn people off poor prints of movies. They’re useful and they help people discover great art. 

4. Follow their social media accounts

Increasingly we’re living in an era where social media is a kingmaker. People make professional connections their all the time but I’ve been dispirited to see so many talented wonderful directors who barely have any followers. This is a great way to interact with directors you like and get updates on their projects right from the source. 

5. Fill out their wiki pages

There is nothing more depressing than when I Google a filmmaker to find out more about them and find their wiki page woefully out of date, if it exists at all. Wiki has a huge problem with a lack of female contributors and this translates into a lack of pages on women filmmakers and their work. After you watch a movie, go to its wiki page and see if it has a summary. If not, write one! If you watch a movie and notice that there’s no biographical info on the director create a page. 

hey guys! I’ve seen so much helpful stuff for students around, I decided to compile and organize in hope I help somebody. this took me a while, so do enjoy!

Since I made a post about Russian Podcasts, I thought I’d do one about German ones too.  Many you can find on  iTunes, on Android using Pocket Casts, or on their own websites/RSS feed. There are several more podcasts in German, but here are a few.

♢ These 7 lessons on pronouncing Hangul by koreanclass101 on Youtube 

Learn Korean Language’s Hangul for beginners 

Individual letters of Hangul and its principles

Korean Alphabet by KoreaFever 

History behind Hangul and its explanation 

Hangul explained by National Agency of South Korea

Korean alphabet chart that has a lot of words you can use to practice your writing!

♢ Tips for improving your handwriting: practice practice practice!! Also you can cheat a little by printing out a text in a nice font and imitating it (that’s what I did and it has worked for me haha )

Hope everyone will find this post useful and happy studying ♥

I've been searching around for good witchcraft resources online. Do you happen to know any websites or tumblr blogs? Books maybe?? Thank you for your time

RFA Heart to Heart - These are mini Q&A sessions with the Mystic Messenger cast that shine some more light into the character personalities and how they interact with each other. Read below the cut for the rest of them.

I’m collecting all the Heart to Heart chats in this post so the other one doesn’t get too monstrous. Do not ask me for the high resolution files, I intentionally kept them low so it can’t be reprinted. These are for fans to use as reference material for the purpose of encouraging more content creation, so if you want to thank me, just create/write/draw more MM and spread the love! Better yet, throw some money at Cheritz so they can make more good shit.
