Not moving from my room until Tim goes to sleep. I can’t even fucking be around him. Massive mix of horrible emotions that just suck right now.
(NOTE: This was all written with the assumption that those reading it who really dislike the idea of the movie haven’t seen it; this is not me judging you in ANY way, but A: the vast majority of people I’ve seen criticizing the movie haven’t seen it and have stated that they don’t plan to, and B, if a movie doesn’t appeal to you at all there’s no reason why you WOULD go and see it, so I don’t see why they SHOULD be planning to. I’m not saying “see it before you decide you don’t want to see it”—that’s ridiculous, though I may go so far as to ask “see it before you try specifically criticizing it as terrible or talking about how it goes because you don’t actually know what happens in it”—just trying to explain what actually happens in the movie and the messages I feel it does do a great job in getting across. This is also responding to a specific post, but is addressed at other complaints I’ve seen about it, too, such as the Once-ler not being responsible for his actions, or the movie not carrying any environmentalist messages in it any more.)
There is a lot of stuff under the cut, but I’m hoping people, both fans and non-fans, might find it interesting.
Mmm. Le red wine. -w-
WHY? why can’t I???
I don’t see why can’t I. I AM the original artist, I MADE THE PICTURE and I have the right to insult anyone who edit my shit. In fact I didn’t even fucking insult you, I approached you 2 times politely before but you decided to be an ass and ignore.
Also editing other people’s art is wrong after all, not to mention deliberately ignoring me. What is there not right to insult you?? Huh?? you are a fucking self-proclaimed always-right dumbass!
Btw I looked through your blog and your this gif is very unfitting throughout your own blog. Don’t worry !! I am very kind and will fix that for you ( ๑*╹౪╹*)/
don’t need to thank me for my kindness!! ^o^/ I know I am so kind that I won’t reblog the picture which I drew and got edited by you to humiliate you in front of my followers!
Oh wait, I will.
First, start with a shitty sketch in an obscenely bright color, so that not only are you the only person that understands the sketch, but you are also the only person that can bear to look directly at it without hearing the pained sizzle of your previously functional retinas.
This is, obviously, to protect the state secrets you’ve kept encrypted in the sketch itself. You are a patriot after all, and you would kill to keep your homo drawings safe for your country.
Next, lower the opacity of your sketch layer to 30% or below, so that you need to tilt the screen and crane your head at a weird angle to see the sketch. Then make a new layer to ink on. You tell people that this is so you can preserve the spontaneity of your line quality so the drawing doesn’t become stiff.
In actuality, this crucial process ensures that you have no fucking idea what you’re doing at any given time.
Next, make the sketch layer invisible and make a new layer over top of it. Using fillbucket, slap an arbitrary base color down. A midtone is best because it gives you the flexibility to go lighter or darker with the rest of your colors, but if you’re a fucking asshole, you can choose brighter or darker colors just so you can heavily regret your decision later.
Then using as many layers as you require, do some shitty colors. Bitterly reprimand yourself for not making closed shapes in your ink layer so that you have to do all the colors by hand instead of just fillbucketing this entire step.
Try not to use too many colors. I usually max it out at 1) a few neutrals that relate to the base color 2) a bright color that also relates to the base color and 3) one complementary-ish bright color that pops. All other colors are just slight value/saturation variations on these other 3 colors
Finally, disregard all the work you did and overload your smoldering turd with Photoshop filters.
Post the image. Hope no one notices that you have no fucking idea how to draw black people. Cry uncomfortably loudly to yourself over a chocolate cupcake while sitting in a public place.
Now you are an artist.
fucking crying at the description
Lol The special treatment in this house is really amusing. Please. Treat me like a stupid little child more, I love it.
We were discussing homosexuality because of an allusion to it in the book we were reading, and several boys made comments such as, “That’s disgusting.” We got into the debate and eventually a boy admitted that he was terrified/disgusted when he was once sharing a taxi and the other male passenger made a pass at him.
The lightbulb went off. “Oh,” I said. “I get it. See, you are afraid, because for the first time in your life you have found yourself a victim of unwanted sexual advances by someone who has the physical ability to use force against you.” The boy nodded and shuddered visibly.
“But,” I continued. “As a woman, you learn to live with that from the time you are fourteen, and it never stops. We live with that fear every day of our lives. Every man walking through the parking garage the same time you are is either just a harmless stranger or a potential rapist. Every time.”
The girls in the room nodded, agreeing. The boys seemed genuinely shocked.
“So think about that the next time you hit on a girl. Maybe, like you in the taxi, she doesn’t actually want you to.”
So I mention this in today’s PDS (not posted yet), but my dad recently visited me for a week because he is about to go into dialysis and will have a hard time traveling after that has begun. If you don’t know, my father and I have PKD (Polycystic Kindey Disease). Its this congenital disease that involves our kidneys being squeezed to death by cysts over a long period of time. It hasn’t affected me yet, but my Dad has dealt with the pain for over 15 years and his kidneys are finally about to fail.
I have played this out in my mind thousands of times. How can I ask someone for something this big? I’m the kind of person who hates asking to borrow five dollars let alone a part of a person. But thats where I am and I’d hate myself if I never asked and God forbid something happened sooner rather than later.
If you would be interested in donating a kidney to my father the following information is for you
- Call 813-844-5669
- Ask for the Living Donor Program
- Request to see if you are a match with Philip DeFranco Sr.
If you are interested in donating a kidney, bone marrow, etc to someone else/someone local you can find more information here.
If you want to support this but not in a surgery sort of way you can always donate to PKDCure.org and/or promote their amazing efforts.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
Philip DeFranco Jr.
Wine. Yummy. -w- Gonna be in the mood for a nice red next time, me thinks.
Only a shit ton more to go. xD
