Another Question

I know I ask questions a lot. I’m trash I’m sorry I just need feedback to know what you want to see. Anyways here’s the question: How many of you would be interested in a affordable closet cosplay/disney bound/gijinkas series? It would be for beginner cosplayers to get that motivation to start the hobby. It would also include a tip helpful to beginners. Any takers? 

omg, my tutor uses pintrest for class stuff and he was scrolling through his trying to find some contrast lighting photos and shit and he scrolled past this one that was titled “band of brothers analysis” and the screencap was babe and honestly i was like !!!!!!!!! trying hard to control myself

Why did you choose your URL?

I was originally using an anagram of “organic chemistry hermit,” but it was too long and I couldn’t remember how to spell it, so I switched to one of my favorite bands, Guns N’ Roses, and made some variation off the name. It also had something to do with how hungry I was… 

What is your middle name?

____ <—- my middle name. I has none :DDDDDD

If you could own a fairytale/fictional pet, what would it be?

I WANT A PEGASUS.

Favorite color?

Highlighter Yellow!!!! Highlighter Orange!!! Highlighter Green!!!!! But the best color: Bright bright bright yellow! These colors give me strength, particularly yellow because of its associated emotion: happiness.

At this point in my life, I need as much happiness and inspiration I can get, otherwise I’d drown in a puddle of dreary gray.

Favorite song?

The rough English translation of my current favorite song is “How to Dominate the World,” composed by Neru - specifically Ikasan’s cover!!!

What are your top three fandoms?
My top three fandoms… hmmm, tough question. One does not simply just have three top fandoms. My current three top fandoms are rather obscure, since all I have time for nowadays are the Taiwanese Light novel series Unique Legend, Legend of the Sun Knight, and the Korean light novel The Legendary Moonsculptor. For my fallback fandoms, when I have absolutely nothing to fangirl about… well, I’d have to say: Harry Potter, Death Note, and Hannibal.

What do you enjoy about Tumblr?

The sheer amount of information I can get from the utaite tags! The food tag is also great~ for when I want to vicariously experience the joy of eating/making food… 

And I really like seeing all kinds of posts, from the stupid to the politically incorrect, to the social activist, all the way to anime and fandom blog posts, and the occasional pictures of scenery, animals, and science science science! Even if posts that I don’t agree with appear on my dash, or posts with a bunch of silly and somewhat fallacious arguments - these are great too. I think it’s because I really like seeing what the rest of the world is doing, or at least, what other people my age are thinking of - because we’re ultimately going to be the creators of society in the next twenty years of so! Unless a zombie apocalypse happens, which in that case, I will take care to hide in Costco.

During her time in Ponyville Tinker has come across many ponies; some want to stare at your butt and give weird faces when you try to explain why it’s wrong and others… want to pick you up in a Banana Car.

Mod Spot: Thank you Bananapie for the fun question to answer! I hope I captured Banana’s essence well! Also, I’m in need of questions again. So please feel free to ask! :D

Ps: Tinkermod is super proud of that banana car angle, good grief.

Okay so I’ve decided to start a fundraiser for mrkenyon and thelastsworld for the money situation they are in right now.  Donations are completely optional, but are appreciated. All the money you give for an art commission (or donation) is going to these 2 talented people who are having a very tough time keeping up with bills and shit.

—————————————————————————-

Here are my commission rules:

  1. I accept up to 7 commissions at a time. So if you request when I’m full, you’ll have to wait until I’m finished
  2. If you’re certain about me drawing your commission, you are required to put in a money deposit, making it CERTAIN that you are buying art from me.
  3. Once you put in a deposit, it is my job to get your commission done.
  4. If you don’t put in a deposit, I will NOT do your commission and open up your slot for someone else who WILL pay.
  5. If your art is for a youtube(or any video, idk) cover, MAKE SURE TO CREDIT ME!!!
  6. Backgrounds are added into the price ( example here ) but if you are looking for a more complex background, message me to discuss the prices.

If you change your mind, I can give your deposit back, but I will NOT refund your money if you give me the full pay.

I accept paypal only

Again, NOT ALL PRICES ARE GUARANTEED THE SAME!!!!!! DO NOT FORGET THAT!!! 

Eugenie Clark, whose work in the field of marine biology was absolutely groundbreaking, passed away this morning at the age of 92.

Not only did she make countless discoveries about many species of fish. Not only was she one of the first scientists to believe that sharks were more than mindless killers, and publish numerous studies demonstrating the complexity and intelligence of the incredible creatures. Not only was she a huge advocate for them, constantly working to teach the public about how amazing sharks, and all ocean creatures are, and how important it is that we actively work to protect them.

She was a woman marine biologist at a time when the field was almost completely dominated by men, but she never let anyone stop her from achieving her dreams. (When she applied to a Ph. D. program at Columbia, she was told by a scientist there, ”If you do finish, you will probably get married, have a bunch of kids, and never do anything in science after we have invested our time and money in you.” She then went on to get her Ph. D. elsewhere, and do many, many things in science.)

She founded a laboratory, first called the Cape Haze Marine Laboratory, which then went on to become the Mote Marine Lab, one of the most important centers for shark research in the countries.

She literally changed the game in marine biology. But she was also just an incredibly kind, curious, and bold individual, who always sought to inspire young scientists and ocean activists.

Eugenie Clark was my hero as a child, and honestly, one of the reasons I’m pursuing a career in science. I had the absolute honor of meeting her (twice!!) and she was so, so, so incredibly kind to me, giving me words of encouragement, talking to me about my interests, and just truly, being one of the most humble, intelligent people I’ve ever met.

She changed my life, and I am so grateful to have had the chance to both know about her, read about her life and her work, and to talk to her.
