WHY IS ITUNES RED

IM HAVING A CULTURE SHOCK

WHY WAS THIS NECESSARY

Doesn’t seem like a great design decision. If something just suddenly changed to red most people would assume something is wrong or broken.

hello friends

"fuckboy" is AAVE

us white people have no business using it

it has nothing to do with the “skeleton war” meme

it is not a transphobic slur (this is an especially baffling claim)

lets stop using it for ourselves and stop relating it to skeletons ok

thank you

uh?

After looking up what AAVE means (African American Vernacular English sometimes known as ebonics)

I feel a responsibilty as a black person to say. This fucking dumb. There’s nothing wrong with white people saying fuckboy. Like for real. I’m not even sure if it actually is AAVE, I’ve lived in black neighborhoods my whole life and never once heard someone say “fuckboy” until tumblr.

I would like to add the idea of a race owning a particular word and that white people can not use it. Is also fucking dumb.

soooooo.

the thing with the cop lady and the bear was a fraud???

There was an entire article on why it didn’t work. It wasn’t a fraud, it just fell apart for a multitude of reasons.(Then again I didn’t finish reading the article it could of been both)

Took me longer to find this than it should have, but it should cover all the reasons why it fell apart.

 I’m really upset it went this way because of the way tumblr users seem to think of things. It would be a SHAME if someone else’s project fell through just because this user base refused to trust anyone ever again.

I still think this a bullshit philosophy if this is what y’all actually believe. “Whenever we fail it was a bad idea and we should never try again”

 Sure its good to exercise caution based on past failure. But thinking like this only leads to getting absolutely nothing.

Sorry if I’m still taking this too seriously, but I don’t think this should be said even in a joke cause people might actually buy into that kind of thought.

little things that bug me when did Pegasus become the name of a fictional species instead of the name of an individual mythological character

When is a good question. The why I’d assume is “We already have this one winged horse named pegasus and winged horse is a bit of a mouthful. Lets just name future winged horses after him as a species..”  Since Greek imagery has lasted so long and influenced the growth of pretty much all European culture through Rome.. For the when we can probably find the first use (or recorded use) of it used as a species name from a google search.

Some googling later

  Apparently there is another word for winged horse. Pterippus. Not at all surprised that didn’t catch on. I actually could not find anything particularly useful in the few minutes I googled it. Sorry shark.

A brand new cast of characters I made for me to start making up some short slice of life comics. I don’t have exact bios yet, because bios are hard and it would be way easier to just let the character develop, but I should be coming up with some over the course of the week. There is a sixth Character but I haven’t made his design yet.
 What I can say now is that they are all artists (well Raylight is more of a performer but whatever) Amelia does photography, Gareth does 3d modeling, Raylight sings, Cassandra is a graphic designer and digital artist. Carmella does traditional art with pencils and paint.

Sometimes I forget I should really learn to draw humans if I want a future career of actually getting hired by people.

Let me give some advice. Advice I haven’t actually put into practice myself but other people have told me to do it.
 When you are given any sort of writing project try to write a set number of words a day. If you have two weeks to write a 4 page paper and you write maybe a thousand or so words each day for the paper you’ll be able to consistently knock out a chunk of the work each day .Its not terribly large amount of words so you don’t lose much out of your day. 
Don’t worry about what the words are exactly because doing this properly should allow for revision time later. Write first, revise later. (much like this post).
 Trust me, procrastinating feels like shit, and this is a really nice way to handle it.
