pulling a day

Can you point me the way to any good really weird Tolkien art. Silmarillion, LOTR, something where the ??? is really strong, but in a good way.

Hm, idk if I have GREAT recs for this, or nothing you’re not likely to have already seen. @tolrone​ does some cool/weird/shapesy stuff as well as more standard painterly portraiture, @melkomelko​ just has some really charming b&w + fashion + alive but flatlining elves, @albuum​ does a lot of neat background noldor/elves interacting with mundane environments in ways I don’t often see, also I always get the impression that they’re pushing themselves re: anatomy and movement and composition! … uhhh, go to @croclock​ for dynamic poses, symbolic creepiness, and neglected characters, @eehn​ is of course king of simplified lighting and hot off-kilter palettes and shapes, i LOVE @chechula​ and @s-u-w-i’s lines and character design and …cross-hatching? just plain hatching-hatching? whatever, you know, liney shading, fuck off. @turndecassette hasn’t drawn THAT much silm stuff but all of it is literally my favorite silm art that has ever been drawn, and also, it’s kinda odd. I mean clean and classically beautiful and also, “This adventure takes place on the moon, and under the sea. The moon is under the sea.”

More people I forgot: @neirienandfriends, @cochart, @speakeasy-coyote I might just keep adding blogs to this post as they occur to me :\

Was listening to that amazing song “Ain’t no mountain high enough” from the Guardians of the Galaxy ending and while I don’t think I understood everything correctly, I heard this part:

“You don’t have to worry,
‘Cause there ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you…”

And was like “Me to my mutuals!”…before I remembered that there’s a freaking ocean between us most of the time.

Remind me again why you all live so far away, guys? X’D

(Everything of that above still counts, though.)

Hi! (please forgive me if a question similar has already been asked and I didn't see it) In a few months volleyball season is starting up and I want to build up my arm strength so that I can serve faster and harder. I don't really know what exercises works best to build up the muscle in my arm, so do you have any suggestions? Thank you in advance 😄

Push Day:

Chest: Bench Press, DB (Dumbell) Incline Press, Pec (Pectoral) Deck, Cable Crossover

Shoulders/Delts: Overhead Press, DB Shoulder Press, Side Lateral Raises, Front Lateral Raises

Triceps: Dip Machine, Overhead Tricep Extension, Rope Tricep Extensions, Cable Crossover

Pull Day: Deadlifts (whole body workout)

Back: DB Row, TBar Row, Seated Cable Rows, Lateral Pull Down, Anchored Barbell Row, Pull Ups, Chin Ups

Biceps: DB Curl, Hammer Curl, Rope Hammer Curl, Preacher Curl

Rear Delts: Face Pulls, Reverse Pec Deck

I recommend working out more than just your arms to strengthen your serve so here is my upper body workouts (straight from my faq) that can help you! :)

anonymous asked:

Do you think doing an Upper body front and back day, then core and legs day and alternating with that routine would give me results, or is the push day, pull day, core day, leg day more practical for results?

You can do whatever fits your schedule :) if 3 days a week is better go for it and mix it up if you choose as long as you give yourself time to rest between the same muscle groups… I’m actually on a new protocol rn where I’m doing 2 upper body days a week and 2 leg days because I want to improve my leg gains 😊

Done!! Phew, that’s probably the fastest painting I’ve ever done O.o Good thing is, I got that A in History!

Anyways, based on @beanpots’ awesome day\night AU and @exile-wrath’s fic! I absolutely loved both, and since I wanted to do a night themed History project, well, this happened XD

Acryllic on canvas and some sharpie and white gel pen for details. Only took like 12 straight hours to paint the whole thing .-. Don’t leave projects for the last day, guys. It hurts.

Btw thanks to my awesome bff @96rebo for listening to my midnight senseless babble and helping me pick out colors, even if you did fall asleep on me yesterday 😂😒

Bucky! (or Mod Hell, whichever works best) I'm starting swing in my dance class and I have the choice of being the guy or girl. I'm really excited but I don't know which one is more fun?

if you get to pick, be both! but honestly it’s gonna depend on what kind of swing you’re doing. if it’s something with a lot of lifts, dancing the male part is gonna take a lot of strength, and being physically larger than your partner helps. if you’re dancing female, you’ll still need to be strong but it’s more about core strength as opposed to lifting strength. often getting lifted can be kinda scary–youre trusting someone else to not drop you, so that may factor in. becca and i used to make skinny stevie help us practice lifts, and while i never dropped becca, i may have tossed stevie a few times. but only when he was being extra dumb.

if youre not in a style with a lot of lifts, then go with what seems more fun! guys get to lead and have to have the confidence in themselves to do so, but girls get to do lots of spins, and tend to get flashier moves. plus they get skirts, which always seemed more fun to dance in than pants. i guess the trade-off for swooshy skirts is having to dance in heels. according to most women who have to wear them a lot, heels are the devil’s footwear.

 which is why i generally stick to my combat boots.

 well. with one notable  exception.
