My hair BEFORE I showered.
Looking through Tumblr trying to think of how I was to do my new room..
Nostalgic memories from when I felt overwhelmed by our Earth.
This photograph is a composition of 10 separate photos.
holy shit make sure you actually click on the photo it’s *almost* as good as being there
I first saw this photo on Brian’s page a few days ago, so when I saw he had submitted it to his portfolio gallery I made sure to get it up as soon as possible. Now there is a fantastic story behind this piece, and since Brian explained it so nicely, I’ll let his words explain the bands.
I don’t remember if i posted about this last year, but here is some scar work i did on a young, Native American girl. In her Blackfoot tribe it is customary to have a line scarred around their arm for each year they’re alive. It is known as Ponn Miistis, which literally translates to “the rings of a tree”. When they run out of room on one arm they move to the other, then the legs, but apparently their average life expectancy is only 43.
Anyhow, her parents are more modernized now and didn’t want her having this done while she was growing up. She was intrigued by her grandfather’s rings, which covered his arms and legs, so decided to come to me from Montana to catch up. Last year i worked on her upper arm and finished it up this time. She’s 24 now.
She promises to be back every year for another line, too!’
I think this is one of the most beautiful and personal pieces of scarification work I’ve ever seen. It’s a continual project, so she has much to look forwards to! So much patience ^^.
Ghost in the Shell ARISE - border: 4 Ghost Stands Alone
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
I have never like Family Guy, and I was expecting a bunch of bullshit when I saw the episode (as always, I mean, just like Ted) but this scene rubbed me in such a wrong way.
Lots of teenagers actually go through this, especially girls, and to see them poke fun at it and make it comedy was horrible and disgusting. they sealed the deal when he threw the sax in the trash at the end of the episode.
I know family guy is a show, but I cannot stand it and it cause me real annoyance. UGH.
YOU HAVE VANQUISHED ME, MIGHTY BEAST
