YO, are you busy this weekend? I didn't know/realize you were in Baltimore, but I'm going to Intervention 5 in Rockville, and I have nobody to help my table. Sadly badges didn't come with them, so I can't get you one, but if you want to be on my table, you can!

Thanks for thinking of me! Unfortunately, this weekend is an Otakon staff meeting and I am completely broke, so I will not be able to venture down to Rockville. :( Good luck to you, though!

If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you

Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!

You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2  and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.

NEATO!! 

It never hurts to get more figure-drawing practice, and while community colleges and other local institutions often offer life-drawing sessions for cheap, this seems like a fun alternative as well.

…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.”

This is God’s truth. Tell it like it is!

The Female Gaze is wider and weirder than most dudes know how to imagine.

(via wolvensnothere)

The Female Gaze is all-seeing and all-encompassing.

you know that stage you went through where you hated being a girl and you just resented yourself and everything having to do with girly things because you were so sick of pink and barbies being pushed on you so you like full force rejected that shit and you were just so full of hate and vitriol at anything even the slightest bit “girly” yeah gender norms will fuck you up

Future girlfriends: This is an acceptable purse.

“Will you hold my pur…” “Absolutely.”

I fully agree. ladies, this is your new pocket and purse alternative.

For years I’ve tried imagining something like this… but to see it… I need this.

I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED

So, remember a few months ago when I posted the contest to name the zoo’s new bald eagle? Some of the choices were pretty cute (Scout, like in To Kill a Mockingbird, and Oakley, as in Annie), but two of them - Sioux and Migisi - were incredibly problematic, as they are the names of a Native American tribe and a word in Chippewa, respectively, neither of which have anything to do with this North Carolinian bird.

I’m happy, therefore, to share that the collective Baltimore community did not pick either of those two, or in fact any of those, choosing instead to name her Vega, after the constellation.

Welcome, Vega!
