the photos are so shitty i know

This is a photo of an actual 17th century justaucorps. If costume designers are thinking about designing costumes for a film or play set in the late 17th to early 18th century, this is a great reference. I seen some shitty film costumes, especially for the Canal+ TV series “Versailles”.

The justaucorps gained inspiration from a coat called the żupan, which is of Turkish origin. France was an ally to the Ottoman Empire, so many of the stuff in France was influenced by the Ottomans and Turks, including their clothing. In the late 1600s, Louis XIV of France saw the żupan and was in immediate awe, due to it’s exotic appearance and simplicity. Here’s a picture of a żupan if you guys are curious:

However, Louis’ coats had a mix of both Ottoman and European fashion, so they still had the European inspiration from the fashions before. But the style of the coat was of Ottoman fashion. Louis himself was a man who loved all different cultures, especially Islamic cultures. Here’s some more inspiration the man got from Islamic clothing:

#1. The heels he wore were from the Persians and the Mughals, who used them so their feet can stay on their stirrups without slipping.

#2. The cravat, or a lace collar, was inspired from the neckties of the Croatian mercenaries, who have worked under the Ottoman Empire. The word ‘cravat’ was a French way to describe a Croat.

#3. The embroidery on Louis’ clothes were inspired from Ottoman Turkish/Persian embroidery.

In the 1660′s, when the fashion of these items first flourished, the coats were short. Here’s a picture of French male attire during this decade:

Well, let me tell you this. These coats are of a different story, but they all come from the same origin. You know the inspiration? Let me show you:

The petticoat breeches and the short coats were inspired from Ottoman military uniforms. Because Louis was wearing these clothes, the other men did too. Anything that Louis wore, the men wore. However, don’t think that Louis turned to Ottoman fashion entirely. Many of the European elements stayed too, including Venetian lace, ribbons, stockings + garters, and styles of cuts within the fabric. Men resumed with the European norm of wearing plumed hats, growing their hair out, and having Van Dyke moustaches.

Lastly, sleepwear. During sleep, Louis wore a banyan (Arabic: بنيان), which was a coat worn all throughout the Islamic world, from the Middle East to India. When the style came to France, Louis called it the ‘robe de chambre’, which means ‘chamber dress’. Whenever he took off his wig, he wore a nightcap equivalent to that of a turban. Because Louis wore it, all the other men started wearing it, so every man in France wore a banyan and a turban to sleep.

Now, people will start asking me, “How about the women?” Well, women’s fashion stayed the same throughout because they had no inspiration. When Louis came out wearing new fashion, all the men started wearing it. But women couldn’t dress like Louis because clothes like that were designed for men during those periods, so they stayed in their European style dresses. Sucks for us, doesn’t it?

The Reason I Don’t Do Cold Readings Anymore…

by reddit user Skarjo

I don’t do ‘Cold Readings’ anymore. I don’t tell fortunes. I don’t read tea leaves.

And I do not do contact ‘the other side’.

Look, don’t judge me alright? It was an easy gig. I mean, the first time I did it, it was a joke. I did it just to impress a girl. You’ve been there right? It was something I’d read about online and I thought I’d give it a go.

So I finally went through omgeverythingplease and here are things that I didn’t know
  • Bitty is OBSESSED with food. OBSESSED.
  • Boy has a *problem*
  • Like I know we like to headcanon that Bitty goes into some sort of media, but he’s more likely to become a food critic. Basically he’s more into the “baking” part of “baking vlog” than the “vlog” part.
  • Holster is a grumpy messy bitch.
  • For real, the team seriously debated who was grumpier: Jack or Holster
  • (for like, a hot second, before the answer became obvious)
  • (It’s Jack. Jack is the grumpiest)
  • Ransom and Bitty are very close friends. Close enough that Bitty chirps Holster that he’s being replaced via tweet.
  • Ransom and Bitty get PSLs from “ ‘Bucks”.
  • That is a quote. Eric Richard Bittle has called Starbucks, ‘Bucks.
  • (I bet he calls Target, Tar-zhay too)
  • This one was a bit more analytical: we found out about Jack coaching peewee via Bitty’s twitter
  • Bitty is the one who tells us that the Jack says the kids call him “Coach Z”
  • Because Bitty is the one who typed out the tweet, if the kids called Jack “Coach Zed”, he would have spelled out “Zed.”
  • Therefore we can assume that the kids called Jack “Coach Zee” and not “Coach Zed”
  • However this revelation by Jack was immediately followed by a debate over Zee vs. Zed. So who really knows?
  • I still don’t know how either of them pronounces “pecan”
  • More after the cut because this is getting long

Wait what? How do we know he wore the rainbow button during rehearsals? ❤️

here’s a cropped photo from today (sorry for the shitty quality, i’m not good at this kinda thing)

here’s a screenshot of that video they posted last night leading up to snl going live.  sure, it could be a different flag pin, so i am making assumptions that he doesn’t have multiple flag pins hanging around, but it sure does look to be the right size and shape, doesn’t it?

Shitty borrows Jack’s computer sometimes, that’s nothing new. What’s new is the untitled folder just sitting on his desktop. It can’t be porn. He set up Jack’s porn folder himself. So, he knows it isn’t porn. But who keeps an untitled folder on their desktop?

Jack. Jack Zimmermann keeps an untitled folder on his desktop. An untitled folder filled with pictures and iMessage screenshots of conversations with Bitty. The pictures are mostly of Bitty, though some group shots of SMH and some others are thrown in as well. He has pictures of Bitty baking in the Haus, of Bitty walking across campus completely oblivious to the camera pointed at him, of Bitty doubled over laughing on Jack’s couch. Very rarely does Bitty seem to be aware that he’s being photographed, and yet the lighting is perfect, a calm sort of happiness seems to be radiating off of him. None of them are dated, none of them are titled. Each photo holds a memory of a person in love.

For the first time, Shitty realizes this is exactly how Jack sees Bitty all the time. Like he’s the most precious thing in existence


HEY who wants shitty cell phone progress photos? Well here they are anyway. Mainly because I’m excited about it. >v>; I had’t put all the pieces together till today so I’m happy that it’s looking good! The knees (for now) work, but they’re annoying to put on so I didn’t bother for now. Photoshopped in the tattoo cause why not, and I’m not about to waste one of the real ones on a dress rehearsal. I’ll get better photos at the actual con and/or when the bow is done. This is probably 99% complete with time to spare to help my friend do his Mercy.

Also, yes, I added the D.Va selfie pose cause it occurred to me that maybe the first time I show my actual face around here I shouldn’t look like I want to murder the world. >_>;

22 Times Harry Styles Was a Little Shit

In honor of his 22nd birthday and also in honor of possibly the greatest Little Shit moment (aka The Tweet to end all Tweets “feeling 22″TM) of his life.

There are literally hundreds of moments to chose from, but here are moments where Harry Styles was a little shit to those around him. I feel personally attacked,

22) Poor Gemma is the long suffering victim of much of Harry’s Little Shit-ery

21) After he added the echo of “done done” to Stockholm Syndrome and made this face because he knew everyone’s reproductive bits just burst into flames.

-First off, Mika and Ferid. Ferid is, as usual, creepily close to Mika, which is nothing unusual, but he must be especially annoying this time considering the fact that Mika has fully activated his sword and looks like he is trying to decide whether attempting to kill Ferid will be worth the teasing that comes with it

-Seriously that shit is fucking glowing Mika is p i s s e d

-Why Mika’s cloak dangly thing tho Ferid. What good is fiddling with it going to achieve

-Lacus looking at Mika like he has no idea why the fuck Mika activated the glowy sword of Succ™

-Rene looking at him like he’s done with his shit

-Giant Krul floating omnipotently in the background

-Arukanu being cute and creepy as all hell

-Crowley’s looking somewhere??? Where??? What is he looking at??? What secrets does he see that we are blind to

-Actually fuck that I bet that Yuu is running full-tilt at them screaming about murder and saving Mika and the rest of them just haven’t noticed it yet

-Mika’s expression

-The more I look at it the more it looks like a family photo gone wrong

-Or a murder mystery cover

-or both

-Both Lacus and Rene have their ears tilted forward so they must be eavesdropping even though Rene looks like he gives no fucks 

-Look I know it’s promotional art design and all but the more I think about it the more I am convinced that Krul is this giant godlike figure merely because if she was drawn proportionally to them she would have looked ridiculously fucking tiny

-Ferid. Just. Just Ferid.

The Daily Mail couldn’t find another photo of Louis to use in their article about him being out at 1Oak last night?? They had to use THAT ONE? 

How is this supposed to be positive promo for “Back To You”? How is this meant to encourage the general public to give his new single a chance?

WHERE IS HIS FUCKING PR TEAM AND why are they letting articles and photos like this get published?????

Meanwhile, his beard posts a fashion pic on her IG which he immediately likes while he has that awful photo in the headline of a Daily Mail article?

This is all so fucked up. This isn’t promo for Louis at all. I don’t even know what to call this. 

p.s. And after those gorgeous photos in The Observer…we get this bullshit again? You ‘d think his team will want to elevate his image but they keep on doing the same shitty stuff with Louis!!! 

fuckboy story time

alright I’m quite proud of this story so stay with me until the end

so to begin, there was a carnival being held in my town this weekend and i went last night with a few of my friends. i got on a ride that went in circles and over bumps and then reversed, and a few carts ahead of me were these dudes singing to the music and trying to get my attention or whatever. the kids in the cart behind them were trying to get me to look at the guys and i was like N O so ignored them (these dudes come into play again later on hehe)

THEN THERE WAS ANOTHER RIDE and at the end a different guy comes up to me and starts a conversation like “hey,, I’m jacob, you’re hot, wanna hook up” and I’m like tf “no” and i shit you not about 20 minutes later he comes up to me and “so thats a no?” and i was being a lil salty bitch “yeah no” 

now here’s where it gets great

a bit later i ran into another male friend of mine & we greet each other kind of weirdly like we make a face and i stick my hand out like EW but the jacob kid’s friend was all ‘”OHH DID U DODGE HIM” so i thought: what would he do if i completely destroyed his friend


i came up with a plan if this kid wanted to come up to me again. i decided i was going to show him a pic on my phone and tell him to fuck off, but i didn’t end up seeing him the rest of the night, so…

the same dude on the first ride who was singing walked over to me,, and i didn’t let him finish his shitty pickup line because i already had unlocked my phone and had this photo up

so i smiled smugly and walked away and his face

he walked away to his group saying “oh that timing,, she was ready

and never in my life have i been more proud of myself


mikeyfreakingway  asked:

Ok so I was thinking about "trade baby blues for wide eyed browns" and Maybe that was a line from Mikey's POV? I know that Mikey was around Alicia at the time and she has blue (ish) eyes and Pete has brown eyes as well.


okay so it’s obvious alicia has blue eyes (something I never knew or thought about), and everyone knows G.I.N.A.S.F.S. (Gay Is Not A Synonym For Shitty) is petekey asf, or at least suspects it (shall I direct you to my “photo-proofed kisses” post…). 

“ill see you in the spring. first pew on the left. wear your white veil and dont forget the words.”

I’ve already mentioned this in one of my other posts, but since this was written in the summer of 2006, the next spring would be the spring of 2007, and who got married the spring of 2007?

Now, July-October 2006, Fall Out Boy was in the studio writing Infinity On High. When was this journal written? July 7, 2006. Obviously Pete knew about the wedding when they were writting the album, so when he wrote G.I.N.A.S.F.S. and he’s saying “trade baby blues for wide-eyed browns,” he was probably trying to tell Mikey to trade Alicia for him and to take him back.

let’s just,,,let that seep in. 

Yo its the night shift greenwalls employee again

Something happened tonight that i cant even be mad at but it was still just. Ugh.

This woman came in wanting photo cards for her daughter and son in law for a late mothers day present for her and a fathers day present for him because they had just had a baby. She stayed for four hours.

Four. Hours.

Every little detail she obsessed over. But she was so nice like you could just tell she was so /lonely/.

Like she made a few questionable comments about not being invited to go see her daughter with her husband and how her daughter wouldn’t let her hold the baby. And trust me, as someone with parent issues myself, i get not trusting your mom, and not wanting to have her in your life after certain instances but this woman was so sad. And you could really tell she was trying to be peppy and upbeat for both her sake and mine but it hurt to see her that way, you know? Like she wanted everything to be perfect since she couldnt be there.

I dont know. It was annoying because she was technologically illiterate and had me walk her through each step of the photo kiosk but honestly like after she saw the cards she hugged me and teared up

It just made me sad. Idk. Knowing what i know about shitty parents and working retail she could have been a manipulator and maybe im a sucker but i felt for her.

Headcanons for Bakugou & Izuku falling for an adorable smol bean photographer at the sports festival that's really good friends with Uraraka?

Katsuki Bakugou

  • He would call them a loser and a nerd and wouldn’t really pay attention to them at first
  • But then whenever he sees them, he gets all hype inside and he thinks it’s just the adrenaline of knowing he’s the best hero 
  • Whenever he doesn’t see them, he gets a little disappointed, but then he catches himself feeling that way and is ?? He completely rejects the idea of falling for a bean with a Canon
  • Would get jealous when they take pictures of other student heroes but not him;; he thinks his costume is the best and everyone else’s is sub-par
  • If he ever needed to take photos of himself, he would go to the bean with the Canon because he said “you’re the least shitty photographer I know”

Izuku Midoriya 

  • Is always red whenever they are around no question
  • Tries and makes awkward small talk, “how are you?” “I’m fine” “me too”
  • He would ask Uraraka who they are and the basic details so he doesn’t look suspicious 
  • He’s genuinely interested about them and wants to see them more often 
  • Droopy flowers and sweaty Midoriya when he tries and asks them out to a date or something

Obligatory annual photo (with a shitty phone camera). So, 34 now - I think I can start to officially call myself middle-aged lol.

What I want to say to younger peeps at this “mature” age is that take your time. Don’t stress and worry that you’re 20-something (or younger than that) and not knowing that you’d do or what you’d become. I’m 34; I have NO IDEA what I will become when I “grow old”. I have no plans made. I honestly don’t ever know what’s going to happen the next 6 months or so. 

I have wishes and dreams, though, as those are always important, both for your well-being and for your natural creative energy. For the next personal year I wish to write - a lot. I wish to travel more. I wish to finally start to collect bigger tattoos. I wish to draw more and earn more money with it. I wish to be paid for what I love to do. I wish to continue playing games, enjoying comics and cartoons. I wish to grow more and contemplate things even deeper. I wish to be even more happier, more often than I already am. I wish to keep up with my dreams even when others wouldn’t agree. I wish to continue enjoying whatever I do enjoy regardless of others opinions. I wish to listen to more Billy Idol. I wish to get diet back together and thus get my allergies calmed down. 

Thanks for sticking with me one year - some of you have stayed a lot longer than that! Thank you for that.

I need your help. This weekend I've dealt with terrible allergies, stress from school, and shitty people at work. And out of all of that, the stress of the New Jersey Devils picking Nolan Patrick or Nico Hischier with their 1st overall pick surpasses all of them. Help. What do I do?

HELLO, FRIEND. I, a human disaster of epic proportions, am not remotely equipped to deal with stress. HOWEVER, I am here for you in your time of need!


1) All About The Jersey is the SB Nation blog of the New Jersey Devils, where you can find people who are Similarly Stressed. Also, intuitive debates about who is better.



2) Here are some highlight packages for Nolan:

(also sometimes featuring John Quenneville, current Devils forward! He and Nolan played on a line together in 2015-16.)

Here are some highlight packages for Nico:

I apologize in advance for the shitty music choices.

3) You don’t HAVE to be stressed out about Nico and Nolan! Why not stress about other Devils things, like the multitude of Kovalchuk rumors, or even Shattenkirk rumors, or just this photo of Patrik Elias, which I have been crying over for like eighty years.

Scoot on, Patty. Scoot on.


*Zach Parise is not actually dead**.

**as far as I know. I’m pretty sure he might be dead inside, though.

5) Here are some ~~fun links about them and the draft!

Nico: (x) (x) (x)

Nolan: (x) (x) (x)

A general draft preview. Bob Mckenzie’s pre-season draft rankings (slightly out of date). An article about how much John Quenneville loves Nolan Patrick

And, lastly: these gifs, and a few facts that I will leave you with!

Nolan Patrick doesn’t like pizza, has at least 1 tattoo, once went to a One Direction concert with Wheat Kings teammate Kale Clague, and claims to have the best hair in the WHL, even though his friend Tanner Kaspick cuts it in his basement.

I will let you experience it on your own!! (x)

Good luck!!! Remember, the draft is June 23-24, with the combine coming up soon! <3
