the pictures are kind of meh

Casting director Douglas Perrett of COACD released a book called “Wild Things” in which he unveiled Polaroid pictures from 2000 to 2010 of future models at their first castings and his first impression of them.

Miranda Kerr – First impression: “She would always do her castings with her blonde friend, another Aussie who would always get the job. She never booked the jobs.”

Chanel Iman – First impression: “Realized how young these kids are. She needed a hug that day.”

Arizona Muse – First impression: “Didn’t get at first; Her hair, her face.”

Elettra Wiedemann – First impression: “Meh.”

Candice Swanepoel – First impression: “Didn’t like her; Found her very Barbie-like.”

Hilary Rhoda – First impression: “Her first season, they begged her to do my shows. Too tall. She later did Balenciaga that season.”

Abbey Lee Kershaw – First impression: “They kept sending her over to hang out. I wasn’t sure why, neither was she.”

Daul Kim – First impression: “We just connected in a nerdy bloggy kind of way; lots of staring and grunting sounds.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley – First impression: “Upbeat character, she seemed to have her eye on the big picture.”

Liu Wen – First impression: “Professional, in and out. Class act.”

Hello all This is an update and somewhat a break regarding the tumblrs future and yes I am breaking away from the character description I started adding to each post.

As some of you who have followed the tumblr will know late last year I tried experimenting with a potential friendship problem adventure story that I had fun drawing with some of the scenariosI put book horse and apple horse in XD . But honestly since the beginning have struggled to come up with a humorous idea on how to warp it up. Not only that but in the recent months I have found myself losing interest or getting slightly stressed on what else I can do with Twi and AJ weekly This tumblr was inspired by Rarijack daily and I though Twijack would be a breeze but its not ,thats partly because I want to keep the images close to the cannon as possible and leave really shippy images to other twijack fans.

This is going to sound silly but I sort have lost my drive to make anything MLP at the moment, though considering I have been with the pony train since early 2011 you have to cut me some slack to essentially take a break from the world of Equestria and focus on other fandoms and personal projects which I have a lot of passion for right now )You can blame Anime for this ^^;). My new direction in my Life is to go in to Picture book / comics as a professional and I can not let side projects like Twijacky weekly eat up all my spare time then I desperately want to have something  unique original to do with jowybean. Now I am in no way shape or form saying I am leaving the fandom or going to become an antibrony I still find ideas popping in to my head for future  pony art and twijack images. I just find everything about MLP G4 kind of Meh at the moment.

Now regarding this information the tumblr is not stopping either its just not going to continue the friendship problem storyline or be updated weekly.  From now on it will be updated with cute sketches or illustrations of the duo only if I think they would make a great addition to the roster of Twijacky imagery I have previously made. I imagine when the new pony season and movie rolls around the inspiration will come rushing back to me and the enjoyment for the tumblr will be refilled :).

I apologise if this annoys/ disappoints you in anyway as i did the exact thing when I attempted luna comic in 2013-2014 and stopped that because well big fan projects for me are hard too keep on top of. I have been drawing way before G4 ponies was a thing guys and I have so many wonderful opportunities as a professional artist that I need to take advantage of before I regret missing them because of being a crony artist.

I feel more assured that I am sharing this with you now rather then letting it die slightly or press on and make it a chore that drains me. If i kept forcing the lacklustre twijack work guys, you would tell I was running dry on ideas soon enough. MLP just dose not have the same magic I felt for it in the early days and eventually it will in some way fade away for me. not ever die out just become another thing I enjoyed being a part of like any other geek thing in our life’s, trends come and go and its a natural response as time moves forward and we grow up in this crazy world.

Whatever happens with me and my love for MLP I applause the diehard fans that can enjoy everything pony to the fullest. And I am am very grateful for so many people taking the time and interest to follow this silly tumblr for two characters I really like.  

until next post which hopefully will not be too long Laters and bro hoof Jowybean

I don't even know whats is with Cole Sprouse, he wears the most bizarre clothes and looks amazingly hot, this insta story with him with the crazy hair sipping marguerita is the sexy thing ever. idk The other day I saw a picture of him with a leopard print jacket and a flowery shirt and he looked so delicious. Idk I really don't know

I know the feeling!! When I stumbled across that photo I first went “what on earth…?” and then immediately “meh, I’d still bang him”. Cole Sprouse is sexy and fuckable in anything and any situation and I clearly don’t know what kind of sorcery this is.

Sombra as an Inkling… Splatoon crossover idea. Meh…Started out excited to draw it and now I kind of hate it. >3> I like how her tentacles/hair came out though.

Might draw her one more time. Not sure. I haven’t been happy with my Sombra skillz.  Someone said my first picture reminded them of Barbie and I just….

“Mother, no!”

Loki chasing his rabbit: his mother and he are running from a kaiju, but circumstances allow only one of them to escape. Frigga lets him get ahead, pushing him forward, and Loki, then just a child, doesn’t know and thinks she would come too. He looks back, but it’s too late. She’s snatched up by the kaiju and…he can’t do anything to help.

The Kindness of Strangers - A Dan Howell fic

A mixture of excitement and nerves bubbled in her stomach as she jumped onto the mid-morning train to London.  She quickly slipped into the free four-seater space in her carriage, glad that she could sit down and ready herself for the day ahead. She settled down, placing her scripting on the table in front of her and began to stare aimlessly out of  the window, which she thought would continue for the 2 hour journey she was anticipating.

You see it was the day of her audition. Today she was heading up to London for her first round audition to drama school and the nerves were getting to her. She was well aware that there were more of these auditions to come as she had applied to more than one drama school and was looking forward to a life of auditions for actually acting jobs, yet she couldn’t help dwelling on the horror stories she had heard about past drama school auditions where they had forced the newbie acting student to humiliate themselves or otherwise perform mind bending tasks mid auditions. She shuddered at the thought. Determined to keep calm she decided to listen to some music and look over her scripting one more time.

About an hour into the journey, absentmindedly staring out of the window, someone shuffled into the seat opposite her. She turned to look at them and give them a small smile to show that she wasn’t going to be the crazy lady on the train when she realised that it wasn’t a random stranger sat opposite her, but Dan Howell.

A number of thoughts ran quickly through her head; should I introduce myself? Should I leave him alone? I don’t want to come across like a stalker! But before she could say anything she couldn’t help but notice that he looked extremely pale. Dan let out a large sigh and began rubbing his temple as he gradually sank into his seat. So without thinking she blurted out  “Wow, you look like you’ve had a shit day?”

Dan made eye contact with her, brow furrowed in confusion at his neighbours sudden outburst. She claps her hands to her mouth in utter embarrassment.

“Oh my God, I’m so sorry! I meant to say ‘Are you okay?’. It’s just that you don’t seem your normal self, it just came out wrong!.” Her face burned red and she stared down at her lap, cringing internally. But Dan laughed quietly.

“That was almost as awkward as something I would do”. He smiled sheepishly at her and she lifted her gaze to meet his eyes.

“Okay, let me try again.” She laughed slightly breathlessly. “Are you okay? You seemed stressed or upset or something?” Dan straightened in his chair slightly to face her and sighed.  

“Well thanks for asking, I’m actually just hugely jet lagged and I fucked up timing for my train and missed a connection and Phil was waiting for me and now he’s pissed off…” Dan trails of and begins rubbing his forehead again.

“Shit that sucks. Look I’ve got some paracetamol here if you have a headache or…” She offers politely, rooting around in her bag.

“Oh my god yes please” Dan says gratefully accepting.

“Don’t worry I’m not trying to drug you.” She says, laughing.  

Dan chuckles and replies a quick “I’m not sure I believe you” before taking a couple pills.

“Anyway” he continued “I’m Dan, I’m guessing you’re a subscriber?” he smiled kindly, but was obviously still tired.

“Well yes. I love your videos, it’s really great to meet you!” She says sheepishly.

“Yeah, I guess I don’t look that great but if you want a picture or something…” Dan started in a slightly resigned tone.

“…Oh, no. Don’t worry about it you’re super tired I don’t want to bother you.” Just as she spoke the food trolley began to rattle down the carriage, and Dan’s face lit up for a second.

“I would kill for a coffee right now, and I’m so hungry because I had to skip breakfast…” he awkwardly pulled his wallet out of his skinny jeans to pay, but his face fell when he saw he had no change. “Fuck my life.” said Dan as he defeatedly lent his head against the window, closing his eyes in frustration. At this moment the food trolley rattled passed and, taking pity on him, she signaled for it to stop.

“Two coffees, please. A bacon sandwich and an orange juice.” She smiles politely at the server. Dan, however, quickly sat up from his defeated slouch.

“No, you can’t pay for my coffee… I don’t know you and I don’t want to give you the wrong impression but..” He starts off quickly but she buts in.

“Dan you don’t owe me anything. I would have done this for anyone who is as tired as you. Don’t get worked up about it.” She pays the fare and then pushes the food over. “Seriously I don’t want to be mean but you look like shit. Drink the orange juice, the vitamin C will make you feel better and stop you from getting ill after being over tired.” Dan resists slightly and then his face dissolves into a weak smile and he mutters a ‘thanks’ before ripping open the seal on the sandwich and taking the biggest bite he could manage. She laughs slightly at his obvious hunger and he stifles a laugh too, realising what he must look like.  Unfortunately the laughing makes him choke a little on the huge amount of bread he just stuffed in his mouth,  thus making you both laugh more. Dan was now making a horrendous half laughing, half  choking sound that had her in hysterics. People on the train begin to turn around and you both end up in a fit of silent laughter as Dan attempts to regain composure by hiding his face with a napkin. You both have tears streaming down your face before Dan manages to stutter out;

“Oh my God I’m so sorry that was really gross. I’m so awkward, I want to die.”  He peers out from behind his hand which he was using to cover his face in embarrassment.

“Hahaha I wish I had taken a picture of your face, it was so funny.” She wipes her eyes and tries to slow her breathing.

“Yeah, yeah. Don’t rub it in.” Dan mutters in fake annoyance. “At least I made you laugh, even if you were laughing at my pain!”

“Meh, haven’t you kind of made a career out of that though!” She replies lightly, smirking at Dan’s cynicism.

“Touche” replied Dan. “But anyway, what do you do for a job?” he slipped a little from his drink as he waited for an answer.  

“Well actually I want to be an actor.” She said slightly shyly. “Today is my audition for drama school training which is why I’m heading to London.”

“That’s such a cool job! I wish I was an actor sometimes!” Dan interjected enthusiastically.”I’m a movie nerd as it is.”.

“Well you’re part of the reason I decided this was definitely for me!” Dan raised an eyebrow inquisitively. “You see as I was going through the whole process of deciding on career paths in school, you dropped out of uni and I just thought I was being pushed in the same direction you had been and…well..I just knew that acting was the best choice for me and…well I dunno…” She trialed of shyly, thinking that perhaps she had comes across a bit too intensely.

“Wow, thanks.” said Dan, awkwardly rubbing the back of his neck, “I didn’t know I was inspiring the next generation of actors!” He added jokingly doing and over-the-top smug face.

“It wasn’t all you, you idiot!” She said, regaining her confidence. “I would probably have done it anyway. You just helped me make my decision! Can’t have you getting big headed now can we.” She laughs again and Dan pouts his lip.

“And there was I think I was all influential..” He says shaking his head and tutting. They both took a sip of their coffee and smile on their faces. “So what have you got in front of you?” He asks, gesturing the the paper scripting lying between the both of them of the table.

“Ah these are my monologues for today… I have Anne Boleyn, two Shakespeares, and a couple of backups.” Dan picks them up and begins to read. She couldn’t help but notice how peaceful he looked when he was reading, his head tilting slightly to the side when he didn’t understand one of Shakespeare’s phrases or a slight smile crossing his face when he understood a joke. Se gently sipped her coffee and tried not to stare. His brow furrowed when he reached the Anne Boleyn speech.

“What the actual fuck is this one about?” he asks slightly bemused, looking up and catching her eye. She lets out a small laugh.

“Yeah, thats a modern 2010 adaption and in that scene she’s carrying her own decapitated head and haunting James I…pretty much all modern plays are crazy and kind of dark so I wouldn’t trouble yourself with it!” Dan gave a confused and horrified expression and gently laid the piece of paper down. She chuckled again at him and just nodded in agreement to his reaction.

“Anyway, good luck with your audition today I’m sure you’ll be great.” He smiled gently, his face genuinely encouraging, small, delightful wrinkles forming at the corners of his eyes. Suddenly the butterflies filled her stomach again as she remembered the full extent of the upcoming audition. “God, are you okay you just went white!” he laughed slightly. “Look, we’ve swapped roles. Here have some orange juice it will magically make you feel better!” he jokingly proffers the orange juice and she looks up from the scripting to make eye contact with him.

“Thanks” she says, returning the smile, “actually I just got nervous again” The smile got slightly weaker as the nerves grew. “you see you distracted me earlier from feeling nervous and now I’ve remembered and I want to die.”. She made a caricatured frowny face  in his direction and he laughed softly.

“Naw, don’t worry you’ll be fine. Where are you going next, we might be walking the same way? Dan says, gesturing out of the window. The train is at Waterloo station already and the nerves doubled in her stomach. The last hour had flown so fast as well. THey both begin to gather their things and stand up.

“Well I’m getting the tube to the Barbican because it’s a 5 minute walk from there.” She says, swinging her bag onto her shoulder.

“Oh cool, I’m on the same line so we can go most of the way together.” He says smiling a swinging his bag onto his shoulder.

“If you don’t mind, I’m a newbie here. You don’t have to stick around on principle, he can go if you’d like.” She didn’t want to seem like she was obsessed with him or anything, although she was really quite a big fan.

“It’s seriously no problem, you just brought me breakfast and I was having a shit day so I owe you one.” He smiled down at her as they shuffled their way to the carriage door and stepped out onto the platform. “okay, so you ut your ticket into the machine and the gates open for you…” he begins in a patronising tone.

“Yeah okay, I’m not that much of a newbie I know how a ticket barrier works you twat.” She chides back at him, eliciting a laugh from Dan. She doesn’t want to hold up the flow of people though so quickly puts her ticket in a steps through the barrier before she could cause a crowd to form. Taking a few steps forward she turns around to see Dan doing an appreciative face and nodding at her.

“Not bad for a country bumpkin in the big city!” he says mockingly over the heads of the crowd around him. You smile as he reaches the gates himself and ends up crashing into them. There is an instant pile up behind him and a lot of impatient businessmen sighing in annoyance. She laughs at Dan as he realises his ticket hasn’t been accepted and has to shamefully work his way against the current of people towards the guard of the other ticket barrier, a look of utter embarrassment on his face. When he is eventually let through the barrier he walks up to where she is standing, waiting and tapping her foot.

“Who’s the newbie Howell?” She says with mocking curiosity biting her lip to keep from laughing.

“shut up, shut up, shut up” mutters Dan as he walks past her, avoiding eye contact and heading for the tube.

It’s only a few stops until she has to get off and the whole way Dan was teased about his inability to use public transport. They both stood on a platform about the head in different directions. They both smiled at each other, both their faces slightly red from laughing on the way there.

“Well good luck today for your audition, I’m not going to lie it sounds terrifying.” Dan says with a smirk.

“Haha thanks for the reassurance. Good luck with handling the rest of the tube on your own since you’re such a newbie.” That earned her a playful grimace from Dan as he shook her shoulders in mock annoyance. They laughed together then Dan pulled her into a hug.

“Despite you turning out be really annoying, it was nice to meet you.” Dan joked, pulling away from the hug and revealing a very dimply smile. “You really have made my day better, you kind stranger.”  

“Ah, well a bacon sandwich is a good ice breaker anywhere.” She giggles back.

“Hey, have my number so we can keep in touch.” said Dan, reaching for his phone. Her smiled broadened in excitement. “wait first, lemme take a selfie!” he added. They both laugh and squish their faces together to take a photo. She tells him her number and he dials it into his phone.

“Okay well I have to go now because I’ve got to catch the next one” she says rushingly pointing to the oncoming tube train.

“Oh right yeah! Goodbye, good luck…!” She waves to him as she scrambles onto the train.

“See you later newbie” she shouts just before the doors close, just in time to see him grimace in annoyance at the nickname. She laughed as the tube sped off. Wow, she thought. What a wonderful man Dan Howell is. She smiled to herself just as her phone buzzed in her pocket. She had a text from an unknown number. It read:

“i think i’ll call my next video ‘the kindness of strangers’

btw thanks for the bacon sarnie

love from newbie x”

Throwing around some random thoughts…


Took out “recovery” out of my description simply because I don’t talk about it a lot. I’m still working o my issues, but then again I just end up whining 😂 I’m also not getting professional helps so it’s kind of meh.


Tumblrs new “profile” page in the mobile app is crap. 😒 The app also keeps blurring (?) random photos which is annoying because I don’t want to tap every third picture to see what it is.


Forgot to cooks something yesterday so now I only have sandwich. I wan to binge on tomatoes…or kiwi. :L

Oh savior of the hxh fandom, I have to know. How would the trouble trio, chrollo and illumi react to their so telling them they're pregnant

you’re too wonderful, darling. ♥

phinks

- he really doesn’t know what to say at first; he’s a mixture of things, with excitement and terror at the base of his reaction. he finally kind of grabs them and they have to remind him there’s a baby in there stop squeezing me doofus

feitan

- he’s kind of flabbergasted because they’ve always been so careful, but he’s not opposed to the idea of tiny versions of him running around. it’s cute and his partner seems happy enough about it.

shalnark

- he’s never thought about kids before, and honestly the idea of children is a little meh to him, but he pictures his tiny kids in his arms and it’s not quite so hard to imagine anymore.

chrollo

- he likes kids, but he’s mildly terrified. it’s hard enough to find time to be able to see his partner, how is he going to take care of them and help take care of his child if he’s never there?

illumi

- boy, his partner has never seen him so ecstatic. tiny future assassins? hell yes. he’s ready to start training them before his partner even starts properly showing. he’s excited.

Can you do a reaction where their crush attends an award ceremony with them and the other guys looking beautiful and ladylike, but when they all go back to the dorm to hang out and change (she's borrowing his clothes for the night), she pigs out, dominates them at video games, and acts like one of the guys, surprising them all since she was so proper and fancy all night and they grow to really feel comfortable not being gentlemanly or careful, treating her like family? Wow, run on sentence..

Jin : he’d still be a gentleman, becuse even if she doesn’t act like it she’s still a lady and needs to be treated with respect. He’ll have to get used to this new side of her because up until then he had only seen her all feminine and stuff. But this won’t make him like her any less

Yoongi : He won’t really be that surprised. He knows that all idols have a certain image to show on screen. He’ll still find it amusing how radical the change is. He’ll totally treat her like everybody else and it’ll be really fun

Hoseok : seeing she’s so different, he’ll totally treat her like one of the gyus. He’ll tease her and mess aroud with her, ruffeling her hair and making fun of her pigging out. It’d be very fun “high five maaan !”

Namjoon : He’ll stand back a little at first, being very taken aback, but when she challenges him to a video game he’ll take up the challenge “I’m not gonna go easy on you dude !”

Originally posted by jinkooks

Jimin : with him, she’ll have eating contests, she’ll steal his favorite cothes and they would just become relly close. He’ll totally forget that he has a crush on her and just enjoy having so much fun together without holding back or having to be all carefull “yeah ! let’s dance”

Originally posted by junghosyub

Tae : she will litterally become like a sister to him. They’ll just be chill together and spends a great time together

Originally posted by victaeni

Kookie : will become a little shit and take tons of pictures and videos of her being totally weired. He’ll tease her telling her he’ll post them if she doesn’t become his slave. He’d make her do all kinds of things like seve him food, massage him etc. He’ll have no shame

I apologize if you've already answered this, but who are some of your favorite couples in the industry, real and/or fake? Also, I'd like to thank you for being patient with everyone's questions, you deserve some credit :)

Hi!

So, I feel like maybe it’s story time.

Hiccups does not consider herself a shipper of real people. *The audience gasps and also side eyes in a that bitch is a liar kind of way.*

Let me explain, I just don’t care that much, I mean I care enough to think of this hits all the fauxmance points (i.e. Jonas and Sophie, anything Taylor Swift publicly does) and then I move on. It’s fascinating to watch all the parts move and how a certain line in an article can direct a group of sane, rational people into the same direction, the manipulation is fascinating to me, the people involved? meh. Same goes for pictures posted anywhere, whether they are pap shots of social media shots.

Um, well how the fuck did you get here, Hiccups?

Well, there was the fateful day back in March of 2012 when I started watching interviews with Josh and Jen and I was like huh, these two have something really special. And it was that same day that I saw Jen had a boyfriend and I thought to myself, that’s odd…and then I let it go…for approximately 2 months. Then while on vacation in California I found myself sitting at my aunt’s breakfast nook and I was told a story that opened my eyes to certain things. I knew these things existed, I just didn’t think certain people would exercise their right to use them. Oh yes, I was one of those people who thought Jen would never

I admit, I was an elitist. But I’ve grown, see there’s hope for you too.

To be honest, I let that bit of info I was given go too, I let it brew in my soul and went on with my life and it wasn’t until news about Hawaii started coming out and stories from the set and promo, oh promo and the obvious closeness that Jen and Josh shared started becoming more and more noticeable that I started really considering all the possibilities. 

When Josh started obviously stunting in 2013, with the weedflower pics and the way he looked like a kicked dog in Spain, I knew that wasn’t real and well, that’s how it started and it grew from something is weird here to oh, I see what’s going on to what it is now. 

So, I don’t ship them, there’s isn’t a level of hopefulness here, like how I hoped Mulder and Scully would get together in the original run of the X-Files, there is a I am convinced they are together, if I am presented with strong enough evidence of the contrary I will reevaluate (I reevaluated this past november, btw, same answer as before). 

So, to go back to your original question, I don’t have any other favorite couples. I’ve followed along with Chris Martin and Annabelle Wallis because of the huge neon Jen and Josh connection and I find them to be delightfully sweet but I don’t look beyond that (they are real btw). There’s one couple I have strong feelings for but I won’t mention them because both are in the closet, but when they both come out, I will be really happy for them and support everything and anything they do with fierceness. 

But the only people I really look into is Josh and Jen, I want to see how this ends, I want them to get their happy public narrative. I know, I won’t ever get an official confirmation that I was right, but I don’t really care about that. Mostly because I know I am. But I just want to stick around to see them be publicly together and then I feel like my job is done.

I hope this word vomit answers your question.

Thoughts on Ep. 201

So I watched the season two premiere right after it was released. In the middle of the night. After consuming a bottle of wine. Which resulted in such insightful and nuanced reactions as this:

And this:

And this sampling of texts (sorry not sorry, @sileas84​):

And I decided that as much as I love drunkenly yelling random letters at the internet, I also like actually analyzing what I’m watching.

So I’m thinking every week I’ll drunk-watch the show and livetweet it. And then sober-watch the show and put together some semi-intelligent thoughts on it.

So without further adieu, my thoughts on ep. 201 are below the cut. Because there are many of them.

Keep reading

look, finally something other than instagram pictures
  • Oh hi guys. I said this a couple weeks ago, but I’ve been pretty quiet here and now part of me thinks it’s partially me feeling out of place. I read about you all kicking ass, and I’ve just been kind of meh lately. I guess I don’t have much to say or at least I don’t feel like I do.
  • I thought I found my wagon, but then I burned it in a fire. Time to get back to some consistency. Story of my life?
  • In other news, CrossFit Games on the beach = 1 million inappropriate comments with my main Bs. Basically it boils down to all of us wishing the entire weekend could happen in swim shorts. And lots of leery emojis. Don’t forget those.
  • Celeste is gone, and I am sad. 
  • Our workout tonight is called “Ze Grip” and consists of way too many toes to bar, cleans and deadlifts. This is going to hurt.
  • I ate breakfast at home and made coffee for myself. THIS IS A BIG DEAL. Sad.
  • (Let’s ignore the fact that my breakfast was half a leftover sandwich Celeste left in my fridge.)
  • So, my first month of limiting my personal spending is going … not that well. Next month I’m going to focus on actually budgeting my money and not just spending willy nilly. July was me going out for lunch and getting coffee too much. GOOD JOB, AL.
  • I finished “City of Thieves” the other day, and it was great. 
  • OK bye.

So far the MySims collection is my favourite one. I like the fossiles, postcards and fishes too, the frogs are kind of meh, and those gems are just tacky and hurt my eyes. Haven’t tried the microscope pictures and the elements yet. Probably I’m missing something here, but collecting is much more fun in TS3. 

anonymous asked:

What even is this article, Melly? They make it sound like Zayn can barely string a sentence together. As usual, I'm going to look at all the pretty pictures and ignore the text. Sigh.

I mean…it wasn’t the most garbage, but I am going to eat my head if I have to see a sentence like this in a Zayn interview one more time:

He sparks a joint to illuminate a stubbled boomerang jaw, plus a brown suede shearling jacket that swells him to the rough scope of a weedsidaisical Saint Bernard.

They have literally tattooed it into my boob bones that Cool Mom Zayn likes to smoke weed, so his team can go ahead and calm the fuck down about it now.

That said, Zayn’s been primarily positioned in style & fashion magazines with stylish bruh readerships,  and GQ is part and parcel of that. Zayn is continuing his trend of being a merch and lifestyle brand integration vehicle, and GiuseppexZayn is the next step in that. I hope things get better for Zayn in 2017 in terms of having a better team and getting released from Simon Cowell’s dungeon, but I’m not mad at Zayn having a capsule brand with a high end fashion house. It strengthens his brand and it’s a natural fit. 

I’m really glad though that they feel the need to continually dick slap me with Zayn’s boy band oppression:

“It’s about being happy to look a bit scruffy,” he says of his style, which comprises thousands of dollars of designer merchandise. “I just got into the whole rock sort of feel to clothes—big boots, skinny jeans, and dark T-shirt, and rings. Just the grungy feel.”

Grunge, to be clear, as opposed to the pip-squeak gleam of his boy-band start.

….”pip-squeak gleam of his boy-band start”.

Did I get carbon monoxide poisoning and imagine the last three years of Zayn’s fashion?

Another kind of odd moment was when the writer mentioned how Zayn’s people chose a dimly lit sea shanty to help placate Zayn’s anxiety, but then later remarked that Zayn didn’t seem too anxious at all:

He doesn’t seem too anxious, moving with the loose-hipped swagger of someone used to walking in fake wind. 

(Disclaimer though: Anxiety can come at anytime and can happen because of high stress situations or while choosing gum in the grocery checkout aisle, so it doesn’t necessarily mean anything)

It wasn’t the worst of Zayn’s articles I’ve read, and the pictures, as always, were beautiful. I’ll totally take “meh” over my own nerd rage in this scenario. 

eleriec  asked:

hi do you have any idea what happened to Jongsuk? I just read in twitter that he disappointed a fan and like there's some kind of anger from netizens. not sure cause the owner of the tweet didnt elaborate. i just want to know if you know anything cause I am worried about jongsuk thanks.

It’s nothing big, really. A fan wanted to give Jongsuk a gift on his way going into Incheon Airport, and grabbed his arm. Jongsuk’s attention was elsewhere and was kind of freaked out about being grabbed, so he instinctively pushed away. However, the scene was captured by some reporters and they decided to make a big deal out of it.

I mean, come on, the Jongsuk we know is always impeccable in his fanservice and goes above and beyond to make sure his fans feel his gratitude. I looked at the pictures and some of the reports and I’m just like, “Meh. Nice storm in a teacup.”

It’s that time of the week again! More from my character design class! Except now we’re doing environments.

The assignment was to do 12 thumbnails and finish one. I kind of went incredibly overboard on the thumbnails, but the last 4 are studies from actual pictures! The last is the finished render which is kinds meh but it was the only one I liked that I was okay with adding onto.
