So my landlord

  • June,25th,2014 at 9:34 AM

is selling the place we’re living. If the current transaction goes through, the new guy could take ownership in under a month.

Which means we may be out of a place to sleep, as his response to “so does this mean we are being evicted” seems to be “IDK don’t care it’s the new guy’s decision.”

This is the same landlord that jacked up our rent for my medically prescribed ESA and hasn’t fixed shit in well over a year. He’s been exploiting the fact that Autumn has panic attack inducing fears of both moving and litigation to squeeze us for our last pennies while crawling around the place painting and doing yard work, including climbing up to our balcony without warning.

For the record- the balcony has a door that faces directly into the living room, right where I sit, typically naked, while I’m on the computer. So, ha ha, privacy.

I fucking hate him and I hope this shitty place makes him go bankrupt. And he had the gaul to think Everett was the one leaving shit on the lawn, when it’s his good-for-nothing relative that lives downstairs not picking up after his mutt. Unsurprising, given that I’m the one who takes her out to play every day, and he can’t even be arsed to watch her.

I Don’t Understand Young People And They Scare Me: I Just Want To Live In The Past Forever



I was going to comment on this earlier because its especially hilarious for two reasons:
a) We are actually the most educated generation EVER and that’s because…
b) We are the most well read generation. Literacy and use of literary skill has SKYROCKETED since the internet became a common thing. Also as much as internet lies are annoying they’re teaching us much faster and better than our parents how to avoid being swindled.
The guy’s complaint is literally the opposite of what’s really happening omg.

In about thirty seconds, I found out that Mark Bauerlein has been working since 1989 as an English teacher at Emory University. It was founded by and is still associated with Methodists, and has just over 14k students.

"Emory University acknowledged today that it had intentionally supplied incorrect ranking data, including average SAT scores, ACT scores, and high school class standing of incoming freshmen, to U.S. News from 2000 through 2011.”
-US News

Ranked 20th in the nation in US News report, 
ARWU ranks them at 53-67 national, and over 100 global.
Bauerlein, personally, wrote his thesis on Walt Whitman. He is Roman Catholic, calls himself a educational conservative but still considers himself “liberal and libertarian”. He was born in 1959, making him 55. The only award his book seems to have won would be the Nautilus award, an award specifically for social/environmental justice literature awarded once every year (usually; it’s apparently so unorganized that some years they can’t get their act together long enough to decide on a winner).
Bauerlein earned a degree from UCLA in 1988, making him 29 at the time (don’t trust him!). Despite an apparent lifetime of academic settings, he doesn’t seem capable of researching basic literacy statistics, and obviously doesn’t have an issue with fudging the numbers, as seen by the school’s banning and his own erroneous statement,
Here is a picture of him.

Now here’s one with a mustache-

How do I know all of this?
The goddamn internet.
Because you’re right, Mark. We don’t have as much general knowledge. Because it’s not about rote memorization of formulas and passages of Whitman anymore. It’s about knowing how to get the information you’re looking for, and our generation knows how to skullfuck the algorithms of most search engines better than you ever will. 
Now, tell me what you know about me.

keep scrolling if you like John Green

  • June,22nd,2014 at 6:06 PM

Okay but no. I usually don’t give a quarter horse’s haunch about John Green and his kingdom, but that’s not fucking good enough. He, plain and simple, is supportive to a rapist. A rapist that used Green’s audience to prey on, an audience he wants to return to. Green should be nothing less than revolted at Eddplant, and I honestly can’t see a way to redeem him if he thinks rape is a small little moral quirk that shouldn’t keep him from friendship.

He doesn’t care that Eddplant did what he did. He cares about saving face, and that’s what that fraction-assed apology was about. Despicable. Awfully gaulsome to call himself a feminist ally. *series of disgruntled yark noises*

Anonymous said: Whoah why did you even acknowledge eddplant. I saw your tweet to him on your sportswithjohn The hell man you shouldnt accept those kind of people back

fishingboatproceeds:

You’re right. 

That tweet was thoughtless, careless, and hurtful to the people he abused, and I am very sorry.

Then why did you do it?

He’s an admitted abuser. Why did you want to welcome a known abuser?

This isn’t just about invalidating those he hurt; it’s about calling yourself a feminist ally and being buddies with someone who should be in jail for abuse.

okay I think this covers the basics of the way I do my lineart, hopefully it’ll be helpful enough! if something’s unclear don’t be afraid to shoot me an ask about it.

enjoy and dON’T GIVE UP it might get really frustrating at times with all the control z-ing and re-drawing lines but the more you do it, the quicker it’ll get to get them right the first time around and the better you’ll become at it so yes, good luck friends.

My greatest weakness shall be brought to its metaphorical knees.

Current Projects

IFTR- In it for the Rush, a webcomic summerizing the Stargate Universe Series from the perspective of a zealous Nicholas Rush fan. Currently on Hiatus.

Greychild- RPG work set in fictional land. Useing RPG maker and attempting to do all art (sprites, larger art, probably some tilesets), writing and coding by myself. Yay. Currently ongoing.

Art- All sorts, for friends and fandom as the interest strikes me.

Writing- Currently writing Sum of a Man which I (most of the time) affectionately refer to as "The Bastard". I also write in a lot of seperate Verses, thought primarily Stargate Universe and a bit of Once Upon a Time, and other works including Robert Carlyle.

I live with and am engaged to Autumn, my Best Beloved and My Dove.

Very lucky to run with the Carlyle Crowd.
