“WARNING: Ferrets asleep in a washing machine may look cute but…Washing machines can KILL ferrets. ALWAYS check laundry and washer BEFORE turning on washing machine/dryer, if your ferrets have access to the machines. Better to check than to have a life long regret. Each year ferrets are killed because they were in their deep ferret sleep and their owner /ferrant didn’t realize the ferret was in there. : ( ” quote via Diane van Weelie

Same goes for dishwashers. Better safe than sorry.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUCEMENT

PETER PETTIGREW WAS A MARAUDER

HE WAS A SMART WIZARD

HE WAS BFF’S WITH JAMES AND REMUS AND SIRIUS

PETER WAS A MARAUDER

HE DID NOT ACT SKETCHY OR STUPID OR FAKE TO HIS HOMEBOYS DURRING THEIR TIME AT HOGWARTS

SO IN YOUR FANFICTION, ONE SHOTS AND IMAGINES THAT TAKE PLACE IN MARAUDER ERA PLEASE DO NOT DESCRIBE PETER AS THE “FAT, STUPID SKETCHY” KID IN THR GROUP. AND PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE HIM OUT. HE WAS THERE AND HE WAS INCLUDED

HE WAS A FREAKING ANIMAGUS WITH THEM

WHICH MADE THE BETRAYAL EVEN MORE HEART BREAKING

LIKE I HATE PETER FOR WHAT HE DID BC THATS A HUGE DICK MOVE

BUT IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT HE WAS A MARAUDER TOO

If all social media platforms simultaneously break in the near future please don’t be alarmed, the reason will be that the Supernatural fandom got it’s hand on a high quality version of Jensen Ackles dancing in booty shorts on the S11 gag reel. Normal service will be resumed when we’ve all fainted and are subsequently away from our keyboards, expect intermittent service thereafter as gifs will be made and may go viral. Thank you. 

Fanart Theft Sandwiches

An analogy for all those slower people out there that don’t consider art theft to be wrong, specifically fan art theft. 

Sandwiches.

Let’s say you’re making a peanut butter sandwich. You didn’t invent this sandwich and you don’t claim to, but you really love them, and you’re making one.

So you set your finished peanut butter sandwich on the table. You’re really proud of this sandwich; you worked hard on it, and you’re going to enjoy eating it. But first! You feel like showing some of your friends this awesome sandwich.

Now let’s say someone takes a look at your sandwich and says “Dang, i love peanut butter sandwiches and that looks like a good one!" 

And then they take it.

They take your sandwich. Of course you’re going to be angry about this, it was your sandwich! Now maybe they turn to you and say "Oh, but you didn’t invent peanut butter sandwiches, so this sandwich doesn’t belong to you.” And they eat it. You didn’t make that sandwich for them and you never claimed to have invented peanut butter sandwiches. You made it for yourself, and they took it without asking. Just because they can see it, doesn’t make it theirs. That’s stealing.

Or let’s say someone else sees the sandwich you have on the table, picks it up, and carries it to a different room to show other people. They didn’t ask you, they just took it. Maybe you don’t want people from the other room to see it, and the person who took the sandwich didn’t ask.

Maybe the person comes back and says that they weren’t claiming to have made the sandwich. But the fact is they took the sandwich without asking. So that’s still stealing.

Now someone else sees the sandwich on the table, takes it without asking, and lettuce in it. Not only have they stolen your peanut butter sandwich, but they’ve changed it into a different sandwich. You never intended for your peanut butter sandwich to have lettuce in it, and they have wrecked it by changing it like that.

Stealing.

Stop stealing. Stop tracing, re-posting, editing, and/or stealing people’s art.

IF SOMEONE CAME UP TO YOU AND TOOK YOUR SANDWICH, YOU’D PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE. WHICH IS WHAT WE ARTISTS WANT TO DO TO YOU.

STOP BEING STUPID. STOP STEALING ART.

thankyou.

Another public service announcement: 

Here is the last call for those inerested in joining a book discussion that  anjanana (banglebanger) and I have initiated. I know thehenaproject expressed interest. 

We’ll probably be getting started this week. 

Here is the synopsis to each book: 

Clothing Matters:

What do I wear today? The way we answer this question says much about how we manage and express our identities. This detailed study examines sartorial style in India from the late nineteenth century to the present, showing how trends in clothing are related to caste, level of education, urbanization, and a larger cultural debate about the nature of Indian identity.

Clothes have been used to assert power, challenge authority, and instigate social change throughout Indian society. During the struggle for independence, members of the Indian elite incorporated elements of Western style into their clothes, while Gandhi’s adoption of the loincloth symbolized the rejection of European power and the contrast between Indian poverty and British wealth. Similar tensions are played out today, with urban Indians adopting “ethnic” dress as villagers seek modern fashions. 

Illustrated with photographs, satirical drawings, and magazine advertisements, this book shows how individuals and groups play with history and culture as they decide what to wear.

The Grace of Four Moons:

Because clothing, food, and shelter are basic human needs, they provide excellent entries to cultural values and individual aesthetics. Everyone gets dressed every day, but body art has not received the attention it deserves as the most common and universal of material expressions of culture. The Grace of Four Moons aims to document the clothing decisions made by ordinary people in their everyday lives. Based on fieldwork conducted primarily in the city of Banaras, India, Pravina Shukla conceptualizes and realizes a total model for the study of body art—understood as all aesthetic modifications and supplementations to the body. Shukla urges the study of the entire process of body art, from the assembly of raw materials and the manufacture of objects, through their sale and the interactions between merchants and consumers, to the consumer’s use of objects in creating personal decoration.

Public Service Annoucement - Dec. 9, 2014

For those of you who have finals in the next couple weeks, we ask that you remember the following things:

  • Take breaks during studying.
  • A bad grade is NOT the end of the world.
  • Libraries are dangerous places. If you must go inside one, make sure you are prepared and have the proper safety gear on. DO NOT ACCEPT A LIBRARY CARD.
  • Take a nap if you need it, lack of sleep is not good.
  • Try to eat healthy foods instead of wheat and wheat by-products (which are illegal, get rid of those)
  • To unwind after a long day of studying (or even during studying), take a bath and relax for a while.
  • Reward yourself after finals with an entire tub of ice cream you can salt with your tears of joy because you survived.
  • You will be okay.
