I NEED THIS PLUSH SEA CREATURE :D
I FOUND MY BIRTHDAY PRESENT
*holds up sign that says Will Fuck For Stuffed Isopods*
I shouldn’t find this as cute as I do. >.>
Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell
EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!
in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love
The tritone (F B) in the third bar is especially fitting, as this interval is called “Diabolus in musica” — “The Devil in music”
i present to you, the butt song from hell, with lyrics, so you can even sing along if you want:
butt song from hell
this is the butt song from hell
we sing from our asses while burning in purgatory
the butt song from hell
the butt song from hell
Up (the butt) with the Renaissance! ^.^
I’ve drawn a few creepy twisty Odos before, but I really wanted to explore what it might’ve been like in the show aand I wanted to draw more Odo being twisty. So this little comic sprung out of that!
This was a fun exercise and I learned a lot while putting it together. Like how much I love drawing Quark.
I have only a passing familiarity with DS9. But heck one doesn’t even need that much to appreciate the brilliance of these pages!
nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.
I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.
Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.
When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.
NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.
The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.
This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is.
And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her.
What a good movie.
Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.
It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.
Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.
And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.
What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.
I’ll admit this much: 2 does come across rather like a wall here. But I can see where he’s coming from.
I think the problem with suicide caused by depression is that would-be suicides don’t appreciate their life, crappy as it may be. As cruel as it sounds, better to be cast into the mud twice a day than to be cast into the grave the once.
Or to look at it another way, they don’t appreciate death really being the big full stop, and the impossibility of improvement thereafter. Life’s like a wheel — when things are at their worst, they can only get better. Death breaks the wheel and keeps the rider at the bottom, unknowing of when the next rise would happen.
I was bullied as a child, and while I had supportive parents, it still hurt — a lot. I tried killing myself — by jabbing a sharp pencil at my heart. I couldn’t even get past my shirt.
Since then, I’ve had occasions where I’ve wanted to end my existence, but thankfully I started writing stories, and I’ve made it my duty not to abandon the main character of my current, ongoing work. My creation has saved my life — repeatedly.
Despite the valiant efforts of the motley opposition in Ukraine, the tame Ukrainian Parliament has passed a brutal law that slides the country into full-on dictatorship. Forbidden under the new law on penalty of high fines and imprisonment: driving cars in columns…
Well, shit. That’s going to make it harder for anything to ultimately change for the better…
current state of affairs
lmao this got a lotta notes while i napped
Such an accurate depiction deserves a whole lot more
Entirely too true
Allow me to look at the situation from a psychological viewpoint.
The current PR disaster (as well as others like it in general) is due, in part, to the anonymity of the masses as perceived by the individual and the increased familiarity between individual members of smaller groups — in this case, between FA employees. In particular, the deleting and suspending part fits a recognisable pattern: how readily those in power will ignore or hush up illegal activity perpetrated by their co-workers.
This behaviour is surely linked to the instinct to protect one’s “family”, i.e. those with whom one is familiar. When this instinct kicks in, adrenaline sets off the mental “fight-or-flight” switches and deliberation takes a back seat to immediate action. Anyone outside the “family” is automatically treated with suspicion — “us” versus “them” — regardless of whether such suspicion is warranted for any given individual. The stranger bearing gifts and the stranger bearing guns — how can the average person readily tell them apart? Therefore both are lumped into the same inscrutable collective and treated likewise.
Does that make the recent expression of this behaviour right? No, not in the least. However, there can be no denying that the nature of the reaction is natural and (to a limited extent) predictable, albeit lamentable.
