I don’t really approach parts if there’s something relatable–mainly because if I was just going after parts that seem somehow relatable to my real life self it would just be consistently playing chronically insecure losers. Not exactly the best career in the world.
His third eye is wide open
Nothing… he did this to himself. We tried to preserve other pumpkins by using bleach or salting them and they all just rotted away into mush.
But this guy? This guy mummified himself voluntarily and never smelled bad or attracted animals. Here he is middle-aged:
God I love him. I hope he blesses our house with longevity.
Found a picture of him as a young man:
My mother asked me how long ago we carved this pumpkin and I suddenly realized that we’ve had this horrible nasty old shriveled up mummified jack-o-lantern hanging off the side of our house for at LEAST five years and now we’re emotionally attached to it.
puberty doesn’t stop steven from dressing up feminine. i hope he has no apprehension against feminine outfits in the wake of CYM tbh, since i think he genuinely wanted to dress up for beach-a-palooza way back. but i could see him doing some soul-searching thanks to the diamonds being kinda a-holes about his self-identity and pronouns.
doodling with colors made me realize (for the 100th time in my life) why warm-ups are helpful and why people do it. when will i learn!
fosters home for imaginary friends was an awful dystopia and no one talks about it at all
just a few things established in the fosters universe
- imaginary friends are sentient people and everyone can see them
- 8 years old is considered too old to have an imaginary friend
- a large amount of imaginary friends get thrown out on the street legally. At several points they talk about how they had nowhere to go and just wandered around. In Good Wilt Hunting you see a neighborhood full of imaginary friends that live on the street
- this is such an issue there’s shelter(s). there’s absolutely political debates about this.
- imaginary friends have rights, but not the same rights as humans (they can hold jobs and need passports and such but they can be confiscated/held as property and apparently killed without any legal issues)
- babies imagine abstract, swarming friends, kids imagine normal friends, anyone older tends towards violent monsters that have to be locked up to keep them from attacking people
- at one point, someone imagines a friend and eats it because they’re hungry
- this is all just treated as facts of life
sewing is one of those skills everyone with the ability should know IMO. i’ve known too many people who just throw out perfectly servicable clothing and bedding because of tears or buttons that have fallen off and these can be fixed at home. sewing’s not hard either.
sewing, like baking bread, is one of those basic skills that corporations have convinced people is just impossible or too expensive for the average person to do in order to manipulate people into buying things.
i’m not saying sewing is possible for everyone, but if you have motor skills fine enough to, say, replace lead in a mechanical pencil, you can learn to sew, and you can help people who can’t sew. here’s a good guide with gifs.
this is what we mean when we say civilization de-skills us to make us dependent
*petting my cat* please cure my depression
Cats don’t only purr because they’re content! When they’re sick, or when a kitten/companion is sick, they purr to help heal faster. So if you’re feeling down and your cat friend comes up to purr on you, it’s because they sense something’s up and they want to help you feel better!
Imagine beeing an animal that literally has a build in ‘comfort my loved ones’ function and still have people think you are an asshole by nature.
You know being an “ally” (for HOH/Deaf people) isn’t always just talking loudly or learning the ASL alphabet. Its all about the little things you do in every day acts.
For example, when I got my hair done for an event once 5 years ago, my hair dresser noticed my hearing aid and talked to me about her brothers hearing problem and asked if I wanted my hair styled to hide, or show my aid. She wanted what I found to be the most comfortable, because she didn’t want the elaborate hair style to cause feedback/discomfort.
Most hair dressers ignore my aid, or awkwardly ask if I could take it out (which I usually end up doing anyway)
Whenever my friends and I watch TV together without question, they put on closed captions.
When walking and talking some of my friends will always walk, or move to stand on the side of my good ear when talking. (i’m HOH in one ear and perfectly fine in the other)
Another time I was getting my hair cut my hair dresser sometimes would stop cutting, or blow drying my hair just to continue the conversation, so that way I could hear him.
It’s the small details like these that count to support a person with differences. Its not these big boisterous acts of helping, its just being a friend doing friendly things. Instead of glorifying it, just normalize it.
Sonic The Hedgehog (2020) | First trailer design vs. redesigned Sonic from the new trailer
there is no way in hell the original design wasn’t a marketing stunt to get everyone to praise their new “redesign”
There is actual merchandise with the old design so it was set in stone before fan outcry
Well, that is a pretty good dent in the “this was all planned” theory.
