5 Cozy Games To Play This Autumn
Autumn, the coziest season of all, is upon us at last. It’s a season that brings to mind hot chocolate, warm flannel, and the brilliant hues of leaves as they burst into vibrant color. For me, it is also the perfect time of year to curl up with a good game. Cozy games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Stardew Valley seem particularly well suited to the season. That’s why I wanted to create…
Lefties on ketamine, rightoids on ivermectin, who knows how many more drugs Big horse is hiding from us

Boyfriend Dungeon challenges the traditional dating sim formula by adding a dash of roguelike dungeon crawling and combat. Did I mention that you can date your weapons? It’s a quirky and unique premise for a game, but one…

these skeletons look legitimately friendly and inviting, i don’t know about you guys but i’m hella stoked to kick it with these skeletons
Much has changed in the peace times after the skeleton war.
Seriously the art in this game is so beautiful. I did a quick drawing of Sam because I’m already obsessed 🤣
There is always a chaotic part of me that is tempted to delete my Animal Crossing island just so I can get the dopamine from restarting it.
Forget the Myers-Briggs fucking personality assessment. I am dead tired of hearing if someone is an INFP or an ESLQ or whatever. I want to know if someone is melancholic or choleric. Bring back the four humors. I wanna see “Kaley, 16, phlegmatic” when I go to someone’s blog. Who is with me. Lets make this happen
here’s a test i found. go wild, y'all. (im choleric.)
i am not joking we need to force teach cooking in schools. like. it is an essential thing for survival. do you know how easy it is to make things if you know even the bare bones shit about how cooking works. we need to teach teenagers how far you can take an onion and some other veggies it’’s sad that people grow up not knowing how to prepare literally anything. and i’m not talking about oh this home ed class taught me how to make chicken nuggets at home i’m talking about learning the balancing of sweetness and acidity and saltiness and bitterness and shit like that and techniques and oil temperatures and how meats cook. it needs to be taught because it’s literally not even that difficult and it matters so much
i truly believe that knowing how to cook is a basic survival concept and the fact that so many people can’t even make simple dishes is depressing as hell this is the sorta thing that should be taught at a young age. being able to take the ingredients you have around your home and turn them into a meal is like, essential and will make life so much better. you don’t need to be a high end chef you just need to understand some things that can be easily taught… but then again maybe the education system is playing a roll against this and ultimately they want you to grow up to rely on mcdonalds for dinner. i don’t know. please learn how to cook for yourself if you’re able. i’m not asking you to hunt for specific ingredients to make some expensive youtuber’s “best” recipe but if you know the basics of cooking you can do a lot with cheap canned ingredients. cooking can be affordable i promise you just need to learn how to make do with what you can get
Can anyone point me towards resources that teach those basics cus I would LOVE to teach my child this stuff but i dont know how to cook
not comprehensive but heres some:
internet shaquille’s basics but especially:
- making rice
- making scrambled eggs
- making oatmeal
- levels of cooking meat
- using & storing vegetables with recipes in the description (this one has a bit of Sassiness directed at people who dont like vegetables but the content is solid)
food safety + a recipe to demonstrate
how to learn to cook (just a list of subtopics, no actual tips)
- freezer meals,
- weeknight meals,
- kitchen tools (although the specific suggestions are pretty expensive even with the lower end scale items the basic categories are solid, and you can evaluate what items you will realistcially need - eg. if you dont need to read temp for steaks etc the temp reader will not be relevant) &
- kitchen care (mid-high advanced home cooking)
and then recipe channels representing various cuisines:
- j. kenji lopez-alt (various)
- marion’s kitchen (southeast & east asian, western/asian fusion)
- maangchi (korean)
- future neighbor (mostly korean)
- the western supermarket playlist of chinese cooking demystified (more recipes available but these are accessible if you dont have “specialty” ingredients)
- family recipes playlist by made with lau (chinese)
- not another cooking show (various)
- cooking with boris (bear with me here i know he does it exaggeratedly humorously but a lot of them are actually solid and beginner cook friendly. mostly slavic/russian)
- you suck at cooking (also falls into the intentionally humorous category but most of the recipes are pretty solid anyway)
- how to cook that (baking, also does debunking videos of viral cooking hacks - breaks down the reasons the hacks dont work, pretty important to understand those basics imo)
- internet shaquille (various)
- babish culinary universe (various)
- i REFUSE to recommended joshua weissman because he is fucking insufferable but if you want you can try if you can deal with it, the techniques/recipes seem fine for the most part
again definitely not a comprehensive list but it touches on most of the basics
dont know if this has been mentioned already but chinese cooking demystified is a fantastic channel for chinese recipes that also includes methods and ingredients that can be implemented in p much any western kitchen!
Unfortunately, J.R.R. Tolkien was no Horse Girl. Fortunately, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Viggo Mortensen, Jane Abbot, and a small legion of local New Zealand equestrians changed all of that forever. (source)

apparently people are annoyed because the thor in the new god of war looks like a strongman instead of a bodybuilder lmao
and they made his hair red (which is historically accurate to the myth)? Wig
What an absolute lad.
The funny/sad thing is that apparently way back in the day when Thor, Loki and Odin appeared in Sandman, Neil Gaiman said that there were irate Marvel fans that were mad that Thor was depicted as a kinda loutish guy with red hair rather than the image of Avenger!Thor (blond, winged helmet, formal Shakespearean dialogue) they were used to.
Finally, some good fucking depictions of strong dudes

Colorized footage of the legendary Annie Oakley speed shooting with her Winchester rifle, November 1, 1894
“When a man hits a target, they call him a marksman. When I hit a target, they call it a trick. Never did like that much.” - Annie Oakley
Idk who Annie Oakley is, but she’s so cool!
Annie Oakley was. BEAST of a marksman.
When she was fifteen, she went head-to-head in a shooting contest with a prize of $100, against a travelling exhibition marksman (Frank Butler). She beat him handily, and won the $100 (equivalent to over $2000 today). Please note that it was a shot-for-shot match, and he lost on the TWENTY-FIFTH clay pigeon (so it was a moving target, too). Twenty-five shots in a row, Annie hit them ALL.
This, understandably, resulted in Frank, who drank his respect women juice, to be like “Wow that is super hot and I’m in love.” They ended up getting married pretty soon after that, but didn’t have any kids (but IMAGINE IF THEY DID. A FAMILY OF SHARPSHOOTERS).
Some of her “trick” shooting (in other words, absolute badass nearly impossible shots given the sights on guns at the time and such) included:
Splitting a playing card clean in half from thirty paces while it was place on its edge.
Taking off the burning end of a cigarette placed in her husband’s mouth, from thirty+ paces.
Having someone throw a DIME into the air, and shooting it clean through.
She was lauded by Chief Sitting Bull for her marksmanship when he saw her blow out a candle with one shot, without damaging the wick or the candle itself.
Into her sixties, she continued breaking records as well as being a vocal women’s rights activist. She, in her later years, shot 100 clay pigeons in a row from 15 meters.
She died in 1915, and her husband was so consumed by grief that he stopped eating and died 18 days later because he couldn’t stand to be apart from her.
After her death it was discovered that her ENTIRE fortune (a tidy amount) had been secretly given to several charities, women’s rights groups, and her family in the last few months of her life.
She was legendary, and received numerous titles to go along with her abilities, but my favorite is definitely Annie Oakley, Little Sureshot of the West.
every person can feel freddie’s presence in their souls when they sing MAMAAAAAA UUHHHH, I DONT WANNA DIE, I SOMETIMES I WISH I’VE NEVER BEEN BORN AT ALL with all the air in their lungs i’m not joking
it’s fucking crazy to think about the amount of people who have sung bohemian rhapsody? like it’s such a unifying song, by nature of the fact that so many people know it. it holds so many good memories for me and other people. it’s a song you scream in the car with your friends while you drive around your boring hometown, it’s a song you drunkenly sing with your arm around your best friend, or a song you sing along to with strangers when it’s on in public. it’s bittersweet to think about freddie’s legacy carrying on like that through his masterpiece. freddie carries on because he’s a part of so many people’s good memories and bohemian rhapsody is a huge part of that.
Reblog if you have sung bohemian rhapsody with your friends
every time i see this post i’m reminded of the video of 65,000 people singing bohemian rhapsody in near-perfect harmony
like, what other song can make that claim?
Some of the highlights of that video include:
- The crowd cheering after the first stanza when they realize what they’re all doing
- So many people audibly ‘doing the guitar parts’… like ya do
- The sheer number of voices joining the rediculous falsetto (thanks, Roger)
- How they all start jumping at the ramp-up “so you think you can stomp me”
- Hands up, hundreds, thousands deep for the final “ooooo”s and the last line to close the song
Only days before my state went into lockdown, “Bohemian Rhapsody” came on in the restaurant kitchen I’d just been hired at and, no shit, every single worker in that little diner started singing along. Me (the only queer afaik), the manager, all the other kitchen workers, the dishwasher up front, the two people on the counter, all but two of the men over 30. Just belting out Freddie Mercury at the top of their lungs. And you can bet when “sometimes I wish I’d never been born at all” came around, we every single one of us ramped up the intensity and basically made sure Freddie could hear us in the afterlife.
They DID that!!!
It took me about 15 seconds in to realize what was happening in this vid, but the second I did, I legit came. This is… I got chills and got so much validation for my theories about tap and pretty much any genre of music here…
Tap is probably one of the dance styles that gets the least amount of credit four how badass it is
Sorry I don’t get it?
They’re tap dancing, a kind of dancing typically associated with being old-fashioned and kind of silly. Personally, even tap dancing to old music is awesome in my eyes, but this is on a totally new and exciting level
The thing about tap is that it’s so often seen as a fancy, old-fashioned dainty dance that only posh (and generally white) people do in tuxedos but it didn’t used to be the case.
Way back in the early days, it was where black performers in Vaudeville were legendary for it in Jazz and Jive routines. At about 1:37, this is where the Nicholas brothers go off.
It’s such an expressive and joyful kind of dance and matches so well with hip hop beats and rhythm, which is why the modern reworking of it is so awesome.
In case anyone is wondering…
This is Chloe Arnold and her group, The Syncopated Ladies. Go follow their IG! She is completely self taught and because of it has created her own unique style of tapping. She choreographed a killer routine to Formation and Doves Cry.
The history of tap dance is uniquely African American, much in the same way swing dance is. Slave owners took away the drums, so another way to keep the rhythm alive was found.
Nowadays tap has branch off into two styles: Broadway and street (or rhythm). Both pay homage to their roots in different ways.
Hip hop evolved out of tap dance btw (not solely, it had many other influences but you can see how bringing hip hop back into tap is extremely natural).
I drew my character, Lulu, from Cozy Grove. Her outfit was giving me such Autumn vibes. It’s so hot here I can’t wait for Fall to arrive!
