Christian Privilege has landed for its annual migratory mating season
"Somebody ought to remind Obama (and his speechwriter) that when Americans sit down around a meal today and give thanks, they give thanks to God."
This is from the Yahoo news article siting the Conservative outrage over Obama not mentioning or thanking GOD in his Thanksgiving speech. Oh, and not just any god, the Christian GOD, because who would ever worship, or not worship any deity other than The Christian God?!
They’re also pulling shit like, “Thanksgiving is a holiday steeped in religion.” Bull shit. Its steeped in manipulation, slaughter and cultural appropriation of the First Nations. The Thanksgiving we idolize wasn’t a religious holiday at all but a drunken harvest festival because people needed a break from the ‘Thanksgiving’ they celebrated every damn Sunday.
Fuck, the Hunger Games series is brutal but in a different way than I’m used to. For some reason it seems a lot more raw to me than other books, the pain, hurt and suffering are endless for Katniss and I like that its not just “and everything was happy…” kind of ending because you don’t come out of that and be okay the rest of your life.
With GRRM when his characters go through hell and survival and death or birth it seems as though its a daily thing. The idea of families back home or loved ones waiting for those victims at the end of a sword don’t really come into play that often unless the character is being unusually sympathetic - but maybe I’m talking out of my ass.
The series is good, and I’m happy I’ve read it as its given me a lot of ideas for the series I’m working on <3
A tip of my hat goes to Susan Collins - a supremely well written you you’ve put out my dear!
Conservatives are of the mindset that what we have already works, and advocate for a model of governance based on proven established law. They are all for reforming existing laws, within reason, to better enhance their effectiveness and efficiency. In a sense, they view themselves cultivators of a…
ArtsyPoses - Relatively new, but very cool. The 30 second drawing tool seems to be glitching a little but that could be my computer being a dumb. Lots of unique poses and they’re looking to expand to other body types (if you read the FAQ they even said there are too many fit models).
PoseManiacs - Everybody knows this one! Great poses, you can interact with them (rotation, etc) and has a very cool 30 second drawing tool. Also I belieeeve this is available on iOS.
Pixelovey - Another fantastic drawing tool - I prefer it over PoseManiacs’ but I can NEVER FIND THE LINK :( Lots of options here, too.
CedarSeed - The drawings here aren’t great but there is so much information here.
Ctrl+Paint - So many digital painting tutorials. SO MANY. Ridiculously helpful in everything ever, and constantly updated.
The Angry Animator - Because come on, all sorts of handy animation tips. I linked directly to the walk cycle because I found it to be most useful but there are other things floatin’ around there if that’s your thing~
Constructing the Head/Face - Done by Stanislav Prokopenko, an instructor. Also really seems to know what he’s talking about. Saving images off of Tumblr seems to be hit-or-miss so keep this link handy as it may not save correctly.
Drawing Muscles - Some of you may remember this from all of James Phegan’s classes ever! Super handy, and this is a printable version of the giant jpg he used to e-mail us.
I love how people peacefully assembling in a PUBLIC SPACE reason for SWAT teams, multiple arrests, macing, police brutality, and damage to protesters property - but people rioting in the streets, vandalizing stores, and setting cars on fire over a Football coach is A-Okay.
