A World of Doodles with @mrdoodle

To see even more doodles, follow @mrdoodle on Instagram.

Cars, a microwave, bread — these are all items that professional doodler Sam Cox (@mrdoodle) has used as a canvas. In other words, nothing is safe from a doodle: “As long as it’s got a clear, blank surface, then I’ll draw on it,” says the 23-year-old from Kent, England. Sam regularly works at his craft as a freelance artist for 14 hours per day, during which time he runs through two pens. In addition, he fills a 100-page sketchbook with doodles every two weeks. “I want to take the whole idea of me living in a doodled world as far as I can,” he says. “Ultimately, it’d be amazing to have a whole town of doodles.”

in 7th grade, we were learning about the civil war, so we watched a movie called "killing lincoln" (its good). there was a character called sam cox, but i lost my shit in class when i first heard the narrator say what sounded like "captain cocks"

I think we did that in the 8th grade. 8th grade history was crazy

“It’s such an honor to be here at the inaugural Time to THRIVE conference. But it’s a little weird, too. Here I am, in this room because of an organization whose work I deeply admire. And I’m surrounded by people who make it their life’s work to make other people’s lives better— profoundly better. Some of you teach young people—people like me. Some of you help young people heal and to find their voice. Some of you listen. Some of you take action. Some of you are young people yourselves…in which case, it’s even weirder for a person like me to be speaking to you.

It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing—at least in some sense—an industry that places crushing standards on all of us. Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success. Standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me. You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before, that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard.

But that’s why I’m here. In this room, all of you, all of us, can do so much more together than any one person can do alone. And I hope that thought bolsters you as much as it does me. I hope the workshops you’ll go to over the next few days give you strength. Because I can only imagine that there are days—when you’ve worked longer hours than your boss realizes or cares about, just to help a kid you know can make it. Days where you feel completely alone. Undermined. Or hopeless.

I know there are people in this room who go to school every day and get treated like shit for no reason. Or you go home and you feel like you can’t tell your parents the whole truth about yourself. Beyond putting yourself in one box or another, you worry about the future. About college or work or even your physical safety. Trying to create that mental picture of your life—of what on earth is going to happen to you—can crush you a little bit every day. It is toxic and painful and deeply unfair.

Sometimes it’s the little, insignificant stuff that can tear you down. I try not to read gossip as a rule, but the other day a website ran an article with a picture of me wearing sweatpants on the way to the gym. The writer asked, “Why does [this] petite beauty insist upon dressing like a massive man?”

Because I like to be comfortable. There are pervasive stereotypes about masculinity and femininity that define how we are all supposed to act, dress and speak. They serve no one. Anyone who defies these so-called ‘norms’ becomes worthy of comment and scrutiny. The LGBT community knows this all too well.

Yet there is courage all around us. The football hero, Michael Sam. The actress, Laverne Cox. The musicians Tegan and Sara Quinn. The family that supports their daughter or son who has come out. And there is courage in this room. All of you.

I’m inspired to be in this room because every single one of you is here for the same reason.

You’re here because you’ve adopted as a core motivation the simple fact that this world would be a whole lot better if we just made an effort to be less horrible to one another. If we took just 5 minutes to recognize each other’s beauty, instead of attacking each other for our differences. That’s not hard. It’s really an easier and better way to live. And ultimately, it saves lives.

Then again, it’s not easy at all. It can be the hardest thing, because loving other people starts with loving ourselves and accepting ourselves. I know many of you have struggled with this. I draw upon your strength and your support, and have, in ways you will never know.

I’m here today because I am gay. And because… maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.

I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain. I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.

There are too many kids out there suffering from bullying, rejection, or simply being mistreated because of who they are. Too many dropouts. Too much abuse. Too many homeless. Too many suicides. You can change that and you are changing it.

But you never needed me to tell you that. That’s why this was a little bit weird. The only thing I can really say is what I’ve been building up to for the past five minutes. Thank you. Thank for inspiring me. Thank you for giving me hope, and please keep changing the world for people like me.

Happy Valentine’s Day. I love you.”

Hi. I'm not really sure if you dabble into zerrie stuff. But um do you think that there's a possibility that yes it started out as publicity and then blossomed into something more? I'm always torn between its real and its fake. All confusing tbh but um yeah

I think it’s been fake from the start, partly because it seems to follow other 1D girlfriend/hook up patterns.  The couch interview where Louis and Harry pretended (or not?) to kiss was one of the first times Perrie was brought up at all.  If you watch it, it seems quite forced, like Zayn knew he had to single out Perrie from Little Mix! and say he liked her.  In fact, he had such a hard time doing it, the others ended up doing most of it for him.

Considering that not only did Little Mix sign with Modest, but they were part of the X Factor which 1D are the biggest alums of, it’s not strange that they wanted to use 1D to promote Little Mix.  1D has been used to promote X Factor contestants multiple times through dating rumors.  Has it mostly been Niall?  I think it’s mostly been Niall, but there was: Sophia Wardman, Lola Saunders, Amelia Lily, Tamera Foster, and Lauren Platt, plus a few others who were more tangentially related like Samantha Jade, Jessie J, and Alexandra Burke.

If there was any chance of it being real, it was at the beginning, but as I just said, I don’t think it was real then either.  We’ve seen far too much by now to know Zayn isn’t into the idea of dating her at all, so there was no blossoming of romance later on.

Hi Sasha! :) Hope you had a great day//will have? I don't know where you live, sorry. It's almost midnight here. Anyway, today I was wondering something and as always, I thought you could help. So here is it. When Elounor was a thing, Katie Ray was the girl that was looking up for them. I was wondering if Sophiam had one?? And what about Zerrie? Im a bit late since its all over, sorry again. Thanks for answering! :)x

And here is another question I will never be sure of : Was Diam/Payser real? I never here about them anymore and since I’m ZS since like some months, I’ve never been in the good times to look at it. Is there any links to some evidence that is was fake? Or is it just simply real? I always thought they looked cute and much realer than Sophiam, but I could be wrong. I don’t really know. Please, help me.

All the fauxmances have had what I like to call stunt coordinators. Basically, the same as was theorized with Elounor. Someone who, among other things, makes sure the happy couple is in the right place at the right time providing the right photo ops.

For Sophiam, it seems to have been this lady.

Third wheelin’ on date night:

Arriving with Liam and his parents when Sophia didn’t:

Lurking and making sure pix are supplied:

Chaperoning Sophiam and other friends of Modest:

For Zerrie, it’s been speculated that one of Little Mix’s managers, Sam Cox, acted as their stunt coordinator.

She’s most infamous in the fandom for this fuck up:

Subtle. And it’s my opinion that she staged a video snippet in which one of Little Mix’s back up dancers posed as Zayn next to Perrie. Her head conveniently helps block the view of the fella, who keeps his head down the whole time.

She happens to be friends with said dancer.

And as for Payzer, the widely agreed upon theory is that Liam did genuinely date Danielle for a bit, developed feelings for Zayn, then broke up with her. Once 1DHQ was clued in that the break up occurred because of Zayn (2nd 1D couple, 2nd headache), she was brought back as a temporary beard while 1DHQ auditioned a long term replacement. So when you see Payzer 1.0 and Payzer 2.0 references, that’s what people are talking about.

That theory was supported by Zayn shading Danielle shortly after Payzer 1.0 ended:

And it gained more credibility once Liam got this tattoo:

And then gained even more credibility once “I Won’t Mind” was released into the fandom:

Don’t look around ‘cause love is blind,
And darling right now, I can’t see you.
I’m feeling proud so without a doubt,
I can feel you.

'Cause we are who we are,
When no one’s watching.
And you’re right from the start,
You know I got you.

Yeah, you know I got you…
(Yeah, you know I got you)
I won’t mind,
Even though I know you,
You’ll never be mine.

I won’t mind,
Even though I know,
You’ll never be mine.

(Never be mine)
(Never be mine…)

We messed around until we found,
The one thing we said we could never ever live without
I’m not allowed to talk about it,
But I gotta tell you…

'Cause we are who we are,
When no one’s watching.
And you’re right from the start,
You know I got you.

Yeah, you know I got you…
(Yeah, you know I got you)


I won’t mind,
Even though I know you,
You’ll never be mine.

I won’t mind,
Even though I know
You’ll never be mine…

The song seems to be referencing the pre figured it out Payzer era.

Hope this answer helped!

BREAKING: HRC congratulates Ellen Page on her brave decision to live openly and authentically

Tonight actress Ellen Page came out as lesbian from the stage of HRC’s inaugural “Time to THRIVE” Conference. HRC congratulates Page on her brave decision to live openly and authentically.

Perhaps best known for her roles in movies like Juno,Inception and X-Men, Page’s indomitable spirit sets a powerful example for LGBT and allied youth around the world.

Coming out – whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or allied – is a deeply personal and arduous journey for every individual. Send your congratulations to Ellen Page.

Read her complete remarks below.

Hello! Wow. Thank you.

Thank you Chad, for those kind words and for the even kinder work that you and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation do every day—especially on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people here and across America.

It’s such an honor to be here at the inaugural Time to THRIVE conference. But it’s a little weird, too. Here I am, in this room because of an organization whose work I deeply admire.
