so if i've done that for you

It’s basically REEEEE but longer

I was asked to elaborate on something I called ‘Mad Nerd Purple Prose’.

So I will.

You’ve likely seen it before, because from 2005 to roughly 2012, maybe even longer (and it’s still around) Mad Nerd Purple Prose dominated the internet. And yet it’s sort of a hard thing to describe, even with the name I gave it. If you’ve ever read a 'bad webcomic review’ it was probably in Mad Nerd Purple Prose. If you used to follow individual nerd bloggers who wrote about comics or b-movies or sci-fi or whatever, you’ve probably seen it. Hell, TGWTG and all their contributors practically are an entire web brand dedicated to the video form of it (or were in the early 2010s, no comment on their modern incarnations.)

But I guess a more context-free definition would be: when someone employs needlessly flowery language and excessive 'humorous’ or hyperbolic metaphor to attempt to criticize something that really doesn’t deserve the amount of effort being employed. To quote a specific bad webcomic review:

“Am I calling the author the literary equivilent of a pedophile? Yes I am.”

THAT is Mad Nerd Purple Prose.

It’s hard to pinpoint what exactly the root behind it is. It all seems to come together in a big mishmash of horrible. Condescension, smug superiority, combined with the impression the person writing it is gritting their teeth and has their hands balled into little fists, seething. The portrayal of oneself as a super genius through excessive, wordy language and grandious insults or negativity while simultaneously implying scorn towards anyone who disagrees.

That’s the best way I can put it at least. Identifying it is really more art than science.

So it’s already one year ago since I started this blog and via this post I want to thank al the amazing mutuals and blogs that I follow! You guys are the absolute best and one of the main reasons why I love it to be on tumblr. Of course I did not forget about the rest of my followers. I’ll be celebrating 1.6k followers, more details on that will be mentioned in my next post! ♥︎

                                 Thank you all, for being so amazing.
                                                                    xoxo, Dounia

ALSO WHEN I WAS WATCHING THE INDY 500 TODAY AND THEY SHOWED ONE OF THE DRIVERS AND MY DAD WAS LIKE “WOW I DIDNT KNOW THEY HAD ALL THAT PADDING INSIDE THE HELMET” LIKE FJDBGIFHBGKDFH THE FUCK DID YOU THINK IT WAS JUST A SHELL AND THEIR HEADS ARE FLOPPING AROUND IN THERE LIKE AN EGG YOLK i fucking bawled 

anonymous asked:

youre anti recovery. youre always talking about how your several therapists doesnt know shit because they give you vaguely difficult advice to alleviate anxiety and depression. youre contributing to making younger people who follow you reject healthy coping mechanisms and treatments.

ohhhh, i see. okay well…. no???

every single time i’ve complained abt my therapists it’s because i specifically tell them “i have done the basics and they no longer help me, i need someone with advanced experience with my issues.” and they’re always like “okay well how about deep breathing?? have u tried deep breathing???”

i have never once said that deep breathing and exercise and eating fruit and all the other basics weren’t good ideas. there invaluable first steps for people who haven’t taken them yet. i’ve always said that when i tell my therapists that those basic techniques no longer do it for me, they explicitly dismiss me and ignore what i’m saying.

like…. i’ve never NOT been clear about that, i don’t think?? all my ventposts follow the format “me: X does not work.  them: hmmm *ignores* okay uhhh… have u tried doing X??” 

like…. i cannot understand how you’d get “anti-recovery” from that.

also the most recent one i posted (today, when i haven’t in like… months i think?) was about my crappy previous doctor constantly telling me i’m an idiot for correctly self diagnosing and causing me to lose valuable recovery time…….. how is that anti-recovery….?

When you were supposed to write something short and sweet and it gets away from you and totally grows into an AU and you sit there, sweating, because oh fuck I’ve done it again and I’d bet all my money that people are gonna want more because I MYSELF want more, and I have so many projects already oh my god someone S T O P M E-

BODOQUE AND TULIO

Bodoque and Tulio’s dynamic is one of the main things of the show and I wanted to look at it a bit in depth.

If you look at it from the outside you’ll find that Bodoque is the voice of reason and rescues Tulio when he’s in trouble, while Tulio is the one that gets Bodoque out of addictions, depressions, and money trouble (these are big parts of Bodoque’s character and the things he needs most help with, same with Tulio). They harm each other as well though, for example Tulio with stealing Bodoque’s job he so wanted, or almost killing him with his stupidity, and Bodoque hitting Tulio whenever he loses his temper.

Bodoque learns how to be “the voice of reason” through the green reports and Tulio learns how he can help Bodoque through Patana (a dynamic very clear in the episode “depressed bodoque”)

When one is missing, they react differently. Bodoque instantly thinks his problems are gone and he now has the job he so wants, and proceeds to steal it away from Tulio. He then fails because of the very issues Tulio was there to help him with. (because of his horse-race addiction or that other time he couldn’t do the moderator job because he was too depressed) Bodoque can’t really express worry or gratitude towards him. (or at least he does so very rarely)

Tulio on the other hand just talks all the time about how much he misses Bodoque and mentions how much he needs him whenever he’s in trouble. (example: almost half of the film)

In Tulio’s dream we find out that he fears some things tied with Bodoque: for Bodoque to expose his secrets, Bodoque being able to live perfectly fine without him, or Bodoque to leave and never forgive him. This drives him to be friends with him no matter how much money Bodoque asks of him.

Another 3D piece that I just completed.  I decided to redo a piece I had done in 2015. Took me about a week worth of evenings. I needed something to distract me from my Starlord sculpt so that I could come back to it with a fresh perspective. 

Done in Zbrush, render comped in Photoshop.

You can see better resolution on my artstation :

Like even if there is a twist to this I’m going to be so annoyed. To write such crap and upset and confuse the dedicated fans who are genuinely gutted about this storyline. To put us through all that for MONTHS only for them to turn around and go “Haha Jk guys”?!?!

Fuck you Iain! Seriously I’m so done with this storyline. I think I was subconsciously hoping for a twist tonight because I’m so downbeat. This has just been a shitstorm from the beginning and there is no end in sight. To do this to two amazing and loved characters who could’ve had a thousand better stories, I just can’t get my head around it!.
