Damn it took me 5 minutes to figure out why you wanted people to like a picture of soap. You did such a good job people think you are just posting random pics of soap.
this isn’t the fist time this has happened, I painted lube and everyone was confused that I posted a picture of lube
Draw random objects perfectly and confuse people.

Lavender and red! We don’t really talk but I love seeing you on my dash!

clutching this ask close to my heart like a southern housewife receiving mail from her long lost love….
if you’ve been told that the word ‘tenderqueer’ means 'queer person who self victimizes’ without any context of race you should think very carefully about what white queer people have to gain by erasing the context of a term used to criticize the ways in which white queer people use social privledge and 'tenderness’ in ways that qpoc cannot. that term was created by a queer black person in reference to being seen as aggressive by (mostly) white queer people, and the ways in which they use 'tenderness’ to violate boundaries and refuse accountability. you cannot seperate race from this concept. stop erasing criticism of white queer people in your discussions just because it makes you uncomfortable and because you want to draw a line between 'you’ and 'them.’
there’s been an influx of donation posts now that people are stupid enough to give a website notorious for having works that sexualize csa, sexual assault and abuse so i am begging you two give me, my fiance, and my roommates money to leave our one room apartment that is falling apart and filling with mold.
we still haven’t gotten anything but i start my new part time job tomorrow and i’m hoping it’ll help us pay for the electric which has gone up because of the weather!
every bit helps, please help us!
Marvel movies have completely eliminated the concept of practical effects from the movie-watching public’s consciousness
Not just practical effects just like. Basic set design lol
How… How do they think sci-fi was done before CGI?
Really badly? Do you remember sci-fi before CGI? It was shit. And don’t say Star Wars because they went back and fixed that with CGI later.
*big sigh* *puts head in hands* heathens who’ve never watched pre-MCU sci-fi movies OR the unedited Star Wars movies, my beloathed
So first of all, most people agree that the majority of the “CGI fixes” in the Star Wars original trilogy (excluding minor visual/sound effects like lightsaber colors and blaster sounds) are unececssary, extremely conspicuous, and/or bad. This is not news to literally anyone older than about 20 who has consumed Star Wars content on any level. There are quite literally two very famous ‘despecialized’ fan projects explicitly dedicated to un-doing all of the shitty “fixed” CGI effects while simultaneously restoring the OT in HD.
And yes, I do, in fact, remember sci-fi special effects before CGI was the foundational cornerstone of moviemaking. It was not, in fact, shit:
Also, ironically I can show you by….*gasp* using fucking Star Wars, of all things. Welcome to the Tatooine pod race set of The Phantom Menace, which was not, as popularly believed, CGI’d but was instead a fully-built miniature set:
Yes, they built the entire set as a minature, built life-sized pod racers for the actors, then spliced the two together using digital effects. Yes, they did such a fantastic job that people think the entire set and scene sequence was basically completely CGI’d to this day. You’re fucking welcome for undervaluing the time, effort, and talents of set designers by implying that set design and practical effects inherently mean things will look like shit.
I’m gonna go on this rant again. This is something I truly feel passionate about.
CGI is a tool. It is supposed to enhance the movie and save on budget. What is happening with it now is that people are trying to use it as a crutch. They’re using a screwdriver to hammer in a nail. Sure, it technically gets the job done, but it’s not the right tool.
CGI is designed to help the production team do things that are either too expensive or impossible to do practically. Exploding spaceships, destroyed buildings, etc. Are expensive. They require several high-quality models that only exist to be destroyed. If you’re not satisfied with the result, you have to start over. With CGI, you can build one single model and test out several different versions of the explosions without having to build and destroy so many things.
Nowadays, everything is CGI. It’s so prevalent that the audience can now tell instinctively when something is CGI vs. practical. It’s frustrating. Please go back.
UC or ER?
This is actually so helpful because as an American living in late stage capitalism where most people have zero health coverage except for the emergency room, the tire purpose of the ER has lost all meaning on most people.
“The pants I wore in the first film were just Levi blue jeans bleached-out, with the back pockets removed. George called Star Wars the most expensive low-budget movie ever made and every penny spent had to show up on the screen. I think they started with my costume.” - Mark Hamill
let’s hear it for luke skywalker’s bleached levi’s, it’s a Look
subtle intimacy is so soft!! knowing someone’s routine and slowly becoming a part of it. memorising favourite teas and soups and drink orders. good morning and good night texts and messy paragraphs of love written half asleep. nicknames only you know. just!!! small things that say “look how dear you are to me.”
A post I’ve been thinking about but yall need to realize men are just people. Gender and biological essentialism is still bad even when you apply it to men. Men aren’t inherently evil or bad. Men are taught toxic masculinity and to be misogynistic (just as white people are taught to be racist) but they aren’t inherently this way. This isn’t meant to absolve them either. Men need to take responsibility for unlearning the toxic messages they have been taught. But like, honestly men are just people. They aren’t inherently bad people.

Do Not Handle This Bug.
These are Triatoma, or kissing bugs. The bugs themselves are not much to look at, but rather it’s the parasites that they carry that are cause for concern.
Chagas disease is transmitted by kissing bugs when they bite their sleeping victim and the parasite (in their defecation) is exposed to the wound. This disease has two stages, acute and chronic. The chronic stage may not show up until years, decades, down the line and by then can cause a long list of health problems, including sudden death.
At this point, there isn’t really a general consensus about how worried people should be about Chagas disease. I’ve seen it compared to AIDS, and I’ve also seen people say it only affects dogs(false).
About four years ago I was working in NE Kansas. Before we could go out, we were given flyers about Chagas and kissing bugs - as the location we were going was known to have them and there was a chance we could accidentally touch them. If we did? Scrub, scrub with soap and don’t touch your face (much like with a certain virus going around nowadays). If we saw any kissing bugs wandering, we were to kill them and bleach the surface they were walking on.
Fortunately, I never saw them on that trip. Two years later I saw one in my house. I’ve seen even more this year. I don’t particularly live in the deep south, and I don’t live in a rural area at all.

With summers warming every year, we can expect these bugs to move more and more northward. The reason I am making this post?
People have been mistaking these for stinkbugs. They have been handling them, not knowing the danger these bugs pose. Hell, even the health center I contacted didn’t even know that Chagas disease existed.
TLDR: Don’t touch these bugs, don’t let your pets touch these bugs. They carry a parasite that can cause sudden death years down the line.
For more information (please, I haven’t included nearly everything over this issue, nor am I an expert), check out Texas A&M University’s research team’s website: https://kissingbug.tamu.edu/
Important note if you are bitten by one of these bugs: acute infection with the parasite is treatable to prevent future complications, and “sudden death” is rare in otherwise healthy adults.
The territory for these bugs extends well into South America, at least well into Argentina. In Spanish, kissing bugs are called “vinchucas”. Be careful.
I love that when the press asked ava gardner why she married frank sinatra scrawny ass she was just like yeah hes hung. Like a fucking horse
No wait the direct quote is actually more crass than the way i worded it. Good for her
And then it becomes part of the environment, That’s Just Where it Lives, until a bout of cleaning hyperfixation where you have to concentrate really hard on The Thing and the curse is broken.
The pillow has been behind the radiator for a solid two months
