It is refreshing to see a congresswoman, who is unencumbered by corporate cash, speak truth to power.
How did Dogma, a relatively low-budget film, manage to have the only good-looking angel wings? Like, even movies with tons of FX dollars tend to fuck them up and they look bad. These are very stylized, and you can tell they’re not real feathers, but they actually look… better than real feathers? They have a balance of curvature and sharp angles that just make for a great silhouette and they move wonderfully. I cannot figure this out!!
e: I looked on The Internet
I don’t know this show but that’s a fucking practical effect??! Better than most cg. Holy shit.
Please go look up the Crooked Feather. They make practical wings! They are so cool. Someday…. Someday I will have a pair 😂
Good CGI today will always look bad when Better CGI comes out, and even then you can Tell That It’s CGI.
Good practical effects will always look like good practical effects.

I was high off my ass last night and had this dream where I was in this dense ass forest and sitting there was a tall woman. She was so tall I couldn’t see her face but she was wearing gold and I was like “uh…hi?” And she said “I made you, do you know that?” And I nodded and she was like “I hear your thoughts. Why do you hate my creation? Why do you try to destroy yourself? I made you perfect as you are. Please don’t break my heart”. Then she started crying and it flooded and I woke up with fucking heart palpitations like what does it Mean™️????
inspiration struck and would not let me go until i drew this
This is really beautiful!!!

Last post of the year, I guess!
Thanks to all my new followers for joining. Have you tried the site yet?
If you’re not following me on Instagram, now is a great time! We’re getting super duper close to 100k followers!
As a white person I feel obligated to reblog this because we need to see this sort of shit more especially in tv shows and stuff like that, will help the future children be less dickish
These pictures speak so loud
I fucking love this
Think this looks great and a long time coming.
TIL that in 2004, a comedian went on television posing as a Dow Chemical executive, taking responsibility for the Bhopal chemical disaster, and promising $12 billion in compensation to victims. Dow immediately denied the promise and apology, but their stock value dropped by $2 billion in 23 minutes.
Mutuals do this
If you all don’t know about the Yes Men you really should check them out. They’re basically two generic looking white dudes who realized that by virtue of being generic looking white guys in Suits and being even moderately tech savvy in the early 2000s they could effectively con a wide variety of media outlets into thinking that they were legitimate representatives of whatever company they wanted, and utilized this platform mostly to critique and shame the companies they claimed to represent, and at the very least, severely publicly embarrass them, such as by offering to do a basic good thing and making the company go forward and publicly acknowledge something awful they caused AND openly admit that they refuse to take responsibility or to apologize of help, creating even more bad press for them and exposing them for the shit they are. Chaotic good shit.
did you know red snapper can live for over 100 years…. whatre they DOING down there
I hope this doesn’t work the same way for centaurs.
Thanks! I hate it
did you know that Friday 13th was meant to be a really good lucky day meant for fucking because it was dedicated to Freyja, the goddess of love and fertility and the patron goddess of Fridays
but then Christianity found out about it and were like “Fucking???? outside of marriage????? NO NO NO!!!” and decided it was a horrible terrible bad unlucky day and you need to be super careful of everything you do in case you die or some shit.
so thanks Christians for ruining everyone’s fucking fun

A Guide To Exploring Abandoned Churches
- If you go alone, don’t bring a flashlight. You’ll see things you don’t want to.
- Don’t bring groups bigger than 12.
- Bring water and some snacks, but no wine.
- If you have to sleep there, sleep in the sanctuary, but not on a pew.
- If you try to read the hymnal, the words won’t be english anymore.
- The Bibles will be blank until you confess.
- Don’t go into the confession booth. The man talking to you is not the priest, and you don’t want to know what he really is.
- The cross on the wall changes locations, don’t look at it for too long.
- If you see someone praying at the altar, don’t approach them. If they approach you, don’t talk to them. Leave immediately.
- If you hear the organ playing while you’re in the basement, know that your time is running out.
- If it plays while you’re in the sanctuary, your time is up.
- Take whatever you want, but if you find that one of your possesions is missing, don’t look for it. Let them have it. It’s not worth your life.
- If you find a rosary, don’t put it on. It won’t help.
- The water isn’t holy anymore. Throwing it on the demons in the shadows won’t work.
- Drink the wine if you wish to never leave.
- Don’t get seperated from your friends.
- If you spend the night, leave at sunrise otherwise you’ll enter another plane of reality with no way back.
- If you don’t spend the night, leave through the doors you came in.
- You might look behind you after leaving and see that the church isn’t there anymore. It means that they took what they wanted.
- Never enter the same abandoned church twice. Even (especially) if you forgot something inside. That’s a lure. On your second tour through, they will know enough about you to keep you there.
why do they always show cranberries in thos big pits n its implied its wet and possibly swimmable. do cranberries really grow like that. wh
You’ve never heard of The Bog?
EACH ADDITION TO THIS POST MAKES MY BLOOD RUN COLD
This is a cranberry bog (unflooded) it’s how cranberries grow. Once they’re ripe, the blog is flooded and the cranberries harvested.
Basically by using big floaty things to round them all up and then scooping them out of the water.
thank u. i hate it a little less but the horrible little man in my head is still screaming “BOG BODY BOG BODY BOG BODY”, but i appreciate the education,
oh here is a fun lil perspective on cranberry harvesting i never heard about anywhere else. the guy who owns the restaurant right down the road from the farm, who fries our chickens sometimes, is from Boston, with the strongest Boston accent ever, and in a former life before he started slinging reasonably priced barbeque and occasional organic chicken, he was a cranberry farmer.
His farm was on the leading edge of kinda using organic/sustainable pest control methods, and one of the things that they did to keep insect damage down was that they encouraged wolf spiders to live in the cranberry field, to eat the bugs.
This was all fine and good until they flooded the bog. Now, you don’t just like flood the bog and then go around it in a boat or whatever. No, you use hip waders to get in there and put the big floaty things where they go and get all the berries and such.
Well when you’re in the bog in hip waders, that makes you the tallest thing. Wolf spiders can swim a bit, but they don’t like it, so they’re, quite understandably, looking to climb out of the water onto a tall thing.
So yeah the first interview question he always asked potential cranberry bog harvester hires was “are you cool with spiders?”
“You’d be amazed,” he said to us, shaking his head a little, “how many guys would just straight lie. Like, you think I’m asking you that question to be cute? Nah man you’re gonna have like a hundred wolf spiders trying to climb your eyebrows, you gotta be chill, those wolf spiders are fellow employees. You really gotta be chill with spiders if you’re gonna work a cranberry harvest.”
Thanks! That’s aweful!
this is the single saddest thing I’ve ever seen on cutthroat kitchen
The contestant didn’t speak English as a first language
Due to this the judge didn’t judge his dish as biscuits and gravy but as brisket and gravy and the contestant moved onto the next round
After this Alton started explaining the dish he was asking them to make more in detail to make sure it didn’t happen again.
THE CORRECT WAY TO REACT TO LANGUAGE MISCOMMUNICATION
You wrote a novel about a demon falling in love with a human. Then, you summon a demon in order to get “real” feedback and constructive criticism. To your surprise, the demon laughs at your work.
You told me from the start that you couldn’t love.
But still my heart yearned for some response.
My hand reached out in the dark, hoping to touch you.
But only emptiness was there to meet it.
I danced around the fiery pentagram, chanting in Latin while dripping blood from a small cut on my finger into the center of the drawing made of grave dirt and bone, all the while keeping an eye out on the clock on the mantel.
I only had 15 minutes before my casserole was done.
Finishing the chant with the ease of years of practice, I leaned back to avoid the plume of Hellfire that spewed from the portal that opened up. Changing out of my ceremonial robes, I got back into my comfy pajamas and checked on my casserole while the new arrival was settling in.
She stood about eight feet tall, her head brushing the light fixture on the ceiling in my living room. Her four arms ended in long claws that dripped venom, making me glad that I thought to put a stain resistant rubber mat underneath the summoning circle. Her eyes burned with the flames of Hell, the fire that continuously lived within her, the source of her power. She grinned at me when I walked in with a bowl of my freshly made casserole, showing rows upon rows of pointed teeth.
“Hey Kara, is there any casserole left for me?”
I waved with my spoon before sitting down to dig into my meal.
“Hey Baph, help yourself, it’s in the kitchen. I couldn’t remember whether or not Satan still had you on the meat ban so left side is vegetarian.”
“Nah he forgot all about that six months ago.”
“Probably shouldn’t scare the tourists by pretending to be him next time though.”
Baphotera, the sixth highest lieutenant in Hell, sat down across from me, laughing as she began to eat the casserole as well.
“Yeah, but it was too funny showing up at a Satanist meeting and telling them to “Go out and do good deeds.” She shook her head. “They were so confused!”
“Yeah, and Satan was pissed.”
“Ugh, I had to be a vegetarian for a year, don’t remind me.” She chewed the pasta with obvious relish. “Either way, Kara, I’m sure you didn’t summon me to help you eat your dinner, much as I appreciate the home-cooked meal. What’s going on?”
I stared down at my bowl, a little unsure of how to begin. “So… your brother may be a little pissed at me come tomorrow.”
“Valaac?” She cocked her head to the side, confused. “What did you do to piss him off?”
“Well… remember when we stopped talking last year?” She nodded to my question, obviously still confused. “I was really mad… and kind of drunk… and I maybe just sorta…” I paused and spoke out the rest in a quiet rush. “Wrote a book using him as the main character.”
Baph laughed loudly, one of her hands slapping her knee. “Okay, that sounds pretty funny, but why…”
“I finished it in the same night, and submitted it to my best friend Alice who’s in publishing. She thought it was hilarious that I drunk emailed her a book manuscript, and got the whole dang thing published and only told me today.”
“That’s… weird… but why would…”
“Look at it.” I handed it over to her, shuddering at the picture of a handsome, passionate looking young man with computer drawn devil horns added on that graced the cover. Baph glanced at the picture on the front with a chuckle, and then read the back cover, her green face turning more and more blue and she did.
“This… is a crappy teen romance novel.”
“You made him into an intense brooding romance lead paired with the most Mary Sue female lead ever.”
My head ducked down. “Yep.”
“You used his real name?!!!”
“Umm… only the first half. They can’t forcibly summon him without the second half.”
“But he’ll still hear it when they try. There’s going to be so many teenage girls trying to summon him once they read this… it will drive him insane!”
I scraped the bottom of my bowl with my spoon, but it was empty. “I realize that. It was the point of writing it… I think. I was really, REALLY drunk when I wrote this.”
Baph finally broke. She laughed, so hard that she fell out of her chair and rolled around on the floor. I let her go on, having time to do the dishes and put away the leftovers before she finally calmed down.
OHMYGODS I love this so much
just read it okay? just read it.
I pity the people who left Tumblr for now they are missing out on great content like this. Thank you @screamingatanemptyroom for writing this story!
how to draw arms ? ?
holy fuck is right… but… does it work with legs???
but how much extend
I NEARLY CHOKED
finally. i can be accurate
This is too fucking great to not reblog
I give it MASCLES
Okay but for anyone who legit wants to know how to calculate it correctly:
The elbow joint on average rests a couple inches higher than the navel, so if you measure how long the distance is from the middle of the shoulder to that point then you have the length of the upper and fore arms!
So if anyone’s wondering about legs too, the simplest rule of thumb is that the length from the top of the leg to the knee is equal to the distance between the top of the leg and the bottom of the pectorals:
And I wanna stress that when i say “top of the leg” i’m not talking about the crotch (please don’t flag me tumblr it’s an anatomical term) i’m talking about the point where the femur connects to the pelvis, which is higher up on the hips:
It’s easier to see what I’m talking about in this photo of a man squatting:
So yeah if you use that measurement when using this technique you should get fairly realistically proportioned legs:
But remember! messing with proportions is an important and fun part of character design! Know the rules first so you can then break them however you please!
