this is my lowest of the low

✂ - discovering to have a common enemy/rival…and decide to collaborate (w/ bartender!jin)

Tonight was supposed to be a good night.

Here, we put emphasis on the word supposed because that shit is ruined the moment you made eye contact with a certain someone. If the word horrible is what you use to describe the lowest of the low, you’d need a better word for this person. He was more than an ex-boyfriend. A liar, cheater, cocky ass wipe and a bunch of other creative names you came up with your friends but now, it wasn’t a time to pull out a list of insults when in front of you - “Okay, what’s up? You look like you’re about to throw that bottle of beer at my face,”

You scoff a laugh, placing the glass down to the counter carefully in case you do, “Tempting,” With one last check that that guy is still existing on the other end of the club, you face forward to Seokjin who seems to pay attention to the way the crease line your forehead and the constant sighs every five minutes. Yes, there’s lingering tension between the pair of you but it was much better since the recent Christmas.

But hey, you and Seokjin wouldn’t have this special relationship if things changed into rainbows and sunshine. You liked the way things were and though some people might think you’re crazy, that’s borderline insulting, you seem to be fine with it. Somehow, maybe only for Kim Seokjin.

“Remember that guy we talked about when we got drunk on Christmas eve?”

He snorts and tucks the rag away, leaning on the counter as he raises a brow, “The asshole that cheated on you?”

“Yeah, he’s-”

“Still talking about me, I see?” A voice - terrifyingly familiar - rings into your ears and Seokjin watches as you press your lips into a thin line, turning your cheek to - “I can’t possibly forget the guy that had no balls to break up with me in person after cheating on me. You can do better than e-mails,”

“You can do better in bed,”

You bite down on your tongue, because your grip you have on the beer bottle is rather tight but with the touch of another, Seokjin as you check, keeps you calm before he speaks up.

“Sir, I’m going to have to ask you to mind your business and get a move on if all you plan on doing is disrupting peace for the night,”

He scoffs, the same time your hand is being flipped over so Seokjin can hold onto it for your assurance it’s fine, more like I’m here for you indirectly.

“Who is he?” He seems to notice your hands locked together on top of the counter, visible like a pedestal (the thought alone was nice), “Your new boyfriend?”

“So what if I am?” Seokjin doesn’t know where this form of need to provoke comes from but he already hates the guy.

“Excuse me, dickhead. Was I talking to you?”

“Whoever it may be, you don’t listen well to orders, do you?”

That’s when you squeeze Seokjin’s hand. Not sure if you want him to stop or to get going because you deserve so much more than this. But Seokjin knows how you feel - once a upon a time, you were in love with this guy. So as Seokjin remains his hold in your hand, he doesn’t know if he should feel thankful when your ex-boyfriend merely scoffs at the sight of a bouncer lingering nearby. All he is rolls his eyes, deeming his time was wasted over this before he stalks off.

You hadn’t even realize you were holding your breath until Seokjin gives you a light tug, then lifting up your abandoned beer bottle to which you take gratefully as you try to relax. After a sip, you’re about to set it away but you motion it to Seokjin because he looks like he could need some but - “You probably need it more than me. And I’d need something stronger because that guy is a prick. No offense,”

With a chuckle, and your hand still in his that even Seokjin himself doesn’t want to bring up (because just maybe he wants to hold onto it a while more), you smile, “None taken.”

there’s just something so pure and ancient and timeless about me, a young girl of [redacted] discovering simone zaza with his sad eyes and his sad mouth and his sad sad hunchy shoulders. attempting to make sense of the conflict btwn that and simo whose presence was so powerful, so laden with meaning, that albert would traverse an entire pitch just to nuzzle him. puzzling out the fragments of his inner depth, imbuing him with gravitas and tenderness, obsessing over him as both subject and object of reflection. following his trails across the world, the lowest of lows, and all the while thinking, i hope you find your way back to yourself, thinking, i hope one day you discover what is there beneath salt and seafoam,

and that same simone zaza, the star i orbited for months, the black hole i collapsed beneath, rising from the ashes to grasp at glory against the real love of my life.

i just. u baldheaded bastard.

“Take his horse,” Dany commanded Ser Jorah. Viserys gaped at her. He could not believe what he was hearing; nor could Dany quite believe what she was saying. Yet the words came. “Let my brother walk behind us back to the khalasar.” Among the Dothraki, the man who does not ride was no man at all, the lowest of the low, without honor or pride. “Let everyone see him as he is.”

“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.” ― Vincent van Gogh

Artist friends, let me just tell you a thing. FUCK Wacom. Fuck Wacom and their planned obsolescence, fuck Wacom and their broken drivers, fuck Wacom and their over-priced tablets. For years we’ve dealt with them with no alternatives but let me tell you a thing.

I recently found out my Intuos 4′s Pen had broken and rather than spend £60-89 for a new one I decided to get a new tablet. Now, I could get the new “Intuos” (which is just the re-branded Bamboo) and i was going to until I found this beast.

This is the Huion  H610, it has almost twice the drawing space of the low-end Intuos and double the pressure levels. The one and only negative is that the pen requires a battery.

Not only that, it is larger than my Intuos 4 which I paid £150 for back in the day. Know how much this cost? £55. The same as the basic Intuos.

I am in LOVE with this thing. Let’s compare this with the lowest of the low end Wacom Intuos line.

                             Intuos          Huion

Active Area:     6 by 3.7 in    10" x 6.25"

Pressure Levels:  1024            2048

Hard Input Res:  2540 LPI      4000 LPI

Express Keys:          4                   8


Not to mention the Intuos is HIDEOUS with buttons that are in incredibly awkward places.

The fact that a £55 matches and exceeds the £150 Intuos 4 I bought years ago speaks worlds. And do you know what the very final nail in the coffin is?

THE DRIVERS. ACTUALLY. WORK.

It’s time Wacom had some real competition in the market, if you’re looking for a new tablet please consider a Huion over a Wacom. I used to be a Wacom fanboy too but now?

Here is the H610 on Amazon UK and Amazon US.

All I can find is good reviews on this thing and people doing the same thing I am doing, trying to convince people it’s worth it. So… You have the information, use it as you will.

“You Say, I Say”

Sugar and Spice,
and Everything nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.

We suffer, we sacrifice,
But at what price?
That’s NOT what REAL women are made of.

You say I’m Desirable,
I say reliable.
You say I’m Pretty,
I say witty.
Desirable?
Reliable.
Pretty?
Witty.

You say I’m Attractive,
I say Proactive.
You say I’m Capable,
I say Unstoppable.
Attractive?
Proactive.
Capable?
Unstoppable.

You say I’m Curvy,
I say Sturdy.
You say I’m Girlie,
I say I’m Worthy.
Curvy?
Sturdy.
Girlie?
Worthy.

You love my physique,
I love how I’m unique.
You love the view from behind,
I love my phenomenal mind.
Physique?
Unique.
My Behind?
My Mind.

Some love to criticize,
But I love my size.
Some love control,
But I love my soul.

Real women don’t demonize, ostracize or penalize.
Real women are wise, and they’re easy to characterize.
Real women compromise, optimize, and empathize.
Real women experience both the lowest lows and highest highs.
Real women aren’t perfect, did I catch you by surprise?
Real women are authentic, and it’s their greatest disguise.                                                        

Appearances shouldn’t be scrutinized.
Society needs to stop and realize.
All the youth that we will jeopardize,
All the young minds we will traumatize.                                                          
Eating disorders are nothing to glamorize.
Nothing attractive about being hospitalized.

Makes you think twice.
All this beauty, is it worth the price?

All this stress takes a toll.
Inner beauty is the goal.
Humanize, Synchronize, Harmonize.
Ladies, everybody … let’s rise.

I’m spending too much money putting together a Rogue outfit for my DND campaign and possible future renfests like I have sunken to the lowest nerdiest low I can go. There is nothing nerdier than spending hard earned money on LARPing. save me. im gonna look so good but save me.

I decided not to post anything on yesterday’s US elections because a) I’m not a US citizen - I won’t pretend I fully grasp the entire situation, and b) I wanted my blog to stay a fun place to chill at, a safe haven people can come to when they’re feeling down.

But I’ve just watched how over the course of this morning many of my friends have fallen to the lowest low. So though my words are worth little and they won’t change the outcome, to all my US and American followers in general (because this seems to concern both continents), for what it’s worth:

I am so, SO sorry.

ya know, 2016 was such a crazy memorable year for me. so many things happened, so many changes and so many new things. i had some of my lowest lows and highest highs and ya know i think that’s how life works. to get to the good, you need to dig through the tough times. but as always, i’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and the good always outweighs the bad. so, here’s to 2017. excited to take in every moment, experience whatever life throws at me and enjoy every step along the way!

Critters, seriously - for the short amount of time I’ve been a part of the Critical Role fandom, I have had a truly ridiculous amount of fun. I have experienced joy and terror and sorrow and awe, the highest highs and the lowest lows. This is honestly the first show that has made me both cry out of sadness and cry tears of laughter in a long time.

The storytelling is phenomenal, the characters make me smile and then break my heart - I am so thankful to be a part of such an awesome story, even just by watching and experiencing it with all of you.

So, thank you, for such an awesome time. And Happy Holidays!!! Happy Winter’s Crest :) ❤️❤️❤️

Why did The New Crystal Gems do so poorly? I mean, I can understand why the StevenBomb didn't fare so well, but The New Crystal Gems was never leaked. And yet it has the lowest ratings of any Steven Universe episode ever. Is it because of the lack of advertising it had? Is the show in any danger?

It is absolutely because of a lack of advertising. My friend, the one who got me to watch the show, who is a fanatic for any Lapis episode, didn’t even know that a Lapis episode had aired until i told him. So many people watched the Bomb when it leaked that they didn’t see ads for the episode that aired when the bomb aired.

I doubt that the show is in immediate danger, but low ratings will prevent it from being renewed past the end of season five. If we want additional seasons, we need to show support for the show. Not every household contributes to ratings, but if you are a Nielsen household, watch the episodes when they air. Watch them on the Cartoon Network site and app. Both of them. DVR the episode and watch it again, just in case. Buy merch every now and then. Share supplementary content. Like the shorts on YouTube.

In short, make it completely clear that you are watching the show, and that you want to keep watching it. And if you somehow have the power, banish the people behind Teen Titans Go! to a parallel dimension so that that show gets cancelled, and stops ruining television forever.

For FriskCz : “The best possible wish, for one of the greatest persons i know. I hope your special day, is nothing else but wonderfull to you, and that those around you fill your life with laughter and happiness. Please enjoy all of your presents, and beautiful wishes of luck and love. You are great, and i love you. :)”

How far are we willing to go for someone we love as a friend ? How much are we ready to put into work for someone we hold dear, and theyre birthday is just around the corner ? Honestly i havent really being thinking about these things so much, all i always wanted to do, is just to make people smile.

And now, i think im finally on the lowest, of low possible qualities of drawing to be able to do it. This is a special, birthday-short-lyric-comic-present for my dear @friskcz and her much beloved @xxmileikaivanaxx, both of then being a few of the best people out there, who constantly take care of each other, and me.

I am about to pass out, because i reworked the short comic six times, and when i finally came up with an good idea, which was around 7AM today (been working on it since 6PM Friday) i pushed myself even harder to finish it. And i did :) Not only that, but @xxmileikaivanaxx even went so far, to edit and add the text at a much, much later time of the day then me ! So a big applause to her people !

Lyrics - Glad You Came- The Wanted ( Boyce Avenue Cover )
Drawn by me @deusn and text and effects added by @xxmileikaivanaxx
Created with love, and care.

Have a fantastic day, or a majestic evening everyone,

This year for me, started off with a broken heart, and a too tired soul. I didn’t want to get out of bed, I didn’t want to go out, I stopped writing songs, and I was just a sad person. This year was probably the hardest year of my life. I went through heartbreak after heartbreak wondering when am I ever going to be happy? People just kept leaving and hurting me. And I felt like I couldn’t bear it. It tore me apart. But this was the year I found ultimate happiness. I guess to get incredibly high, you have to fall incredibly low, and that’s what I did. I sank to my lowest point. But then I realized something. That happiness, it isn’t something that has to be found in another person, or something that you’ll gain some other time. Happiness is a choice you make. You choose to look within you and find you, you choose to be content with your life, you choose to wake up in the morning and you choose how your outlook will be that day. It’s all a choice. And happiness is something that is in us all, but sometimes we just don’t know that we have it. If it’s one thing I learned this year, it’s that happiness isn’t in a person or a thing. Happiness is within you.

This fish is so unnerved not because a couple of kids are drifting in the river, but because they have terrible padding etiquete.

WHERE DID YOU EVEN GET THAT GUITAR FROM.

Lowest of the low I said last episode?

Couldn’t get any worse I said last episode?

Man I love to eat my own words.

“Out of every ten kids that get lost on the woods, five are found dead, two are found missing, two have only some extremities lying around and only one comes back terribly traumatized.”

“Greg… Found missing doesn’t make sense semantically speaking.

people suck but pizza is great

thebombzen  asked:

You've spoken to us on Tumblr before and your voice is slightly higher than average (although you do make it slightly lower for webinars and stuff, as you have shown us how to do). I was under the impression that Ugin being a super old dragon would most likely have a really deep voice. How did you do that without sounding bad? When I try to do that I end up coughing a ton? Got any tips for doing an unnaturally deep voice without struggling?

My voice can actually go fairly low naturally. I sing bass in choir, and I’m usually assigned to take the lowest parts.

But my voice also tends to get higher when I’m excited. (And I’m excited a LOT of the time.)

Tips for using a deep voice without hurting or sounding forced:

• Good posture, keep your shoulders back and your chin up
• Raise your eyebrows and keep them raised (most people furrow their brow when trying to be low, and this is a mistake)
• Deep breaths
• Go slow
• Enunciate your words carefully and give your mouth plenty of room for vowels
• Record your voice early in the morning (seriously)
• Don’t over-inflate your lungs, exhale a little and then use your diaphragm to move the air out

I hope some of that helps! I’d love to hear your recorded voice on here sometime!
