I know zilch about cooking with an oven if I don’t have a recipe, so I just end up putting it at the default 350 F and timing it for 20 minutes, and if it’s not cooked I just leave it in for smaller and smaller spans of time until it’s done.

THANK YOU, YOU BEAUTIFUL PERSON!

This is one of the things that popped up in my google search that I decided to check out and the more of it I read the more pissed off I got.

First of all this person does not seem to understand that style varies from artist to artist and often concept art is quite rough. Things like Gaston having an early sketch that make him look like a French aristocrat are interesting! A picture of Mufasa and Simba in a cartoonier style (but still the same designs) is much less interesting.

Secondly SO MUCH CONCEPT ART OF FEMALE CHARACTERS is described as “sexy/sexier.” WTF are they talking about?

"Cruella was originally envisioned to be sexy and much more younger looking."

Cruella’s description is accurate and interesting. This matches the images presented and in a tasteful way! Because the final version of Cruella WASN’T meant to be young and attractive, so this is an interesting note!

"A sexier Belle."

Apparently for Belle, sexier means darker lips and more shoulder showing.The last image has a slight “come hither” look.

"A sexier looking Pocahontas (didn’t see that one coming)."

Three images of Pocahontas in all different styles. All pencil sketches. None seem to show more cleavage or skin than the final design, and none have hooded eyes or indicate sexual interest. In the middle sketch she actually looks YOUNGER, which makes this comment super creepy. (Also, “didn’t see that coming”??? wtf does that even mean??)

"Surprise! Some sexy sketches of Tiana."

Some headshots of Tiana. They show a little shoulder I guess?? With three different smiles or smirks, two of which have hooded eyes. (“Surprise!” … Not much of a surprise when almost half of the other females have the word “sexy” in their description.)

"These sketches show Rapunzel’s freckles much more pronounced than in the final in the film.
Also, the sketch on the right, is a SEXIER version of Rapunzel.”

This one gets your hopes up for a thoughtful description, and then slams you with yet another instance of the word “sexy.” IN CAPITALS, no less. For a character that is 17/18. Yeesh. The only thing different about the third drawing is that her hair is unbound and you can see her collarbones. 

Most of the ones that had “sexy” in their description didn’t even have surprising concept art - it looked just like them. And there’s so much objectification there (you have bare shoulders and loose hair and you’re smiling that means i can look at you and think about you sexually right???) And even if it wasn’t meant that way, whoever wrote this and had literally no better words to use to describe drawings of women really needs to get a freaking thesaurus

The use of the word sexy here, with the exception of in Cruella’s description, has NO contextual value. It wasn’t the creator’s intention to make the females inherently sexy and then they had to tone it down for a kid’s movie. The writer of this list or whatever is just interpreting the images that way, even though they’re just rough concept art that is very similar to the final designs of the film.

Here are the actual differences between the concept art and final design:
Tiana’s fro looks a bit more modern than her final design, Rapunzel had more freckles, 
Pocahontas’ expression was a bit softer, and Belle looks a little fancier and has pouty lips. That’s it.

Some of them have a bit of a “come hither” look because that’s how a lot of male artists automatically draw a woman’s face, not because the character was originally going to be sexier. The use of that word to describe them is completely objective, and any perceived increase in attractiveness for this list-maker was not an intended character trait that got chucked in development.

For comparison, the other female characters and the male characters got notes on differences in style, fashion, design choices, inspirations, early story ideas, character age, similarity to other characters, personality, or character traits. “Sexy” doesn’t fit into any of these categories, and all it does is irritate me like nothing else.

Someone remind me of the name of that website where you can upload a private collection of information about your original characters and keep track of all the little details that are easy to forget? Like it’s an entire website just based around OCs, but google search only took me to tutorials about how to make original characters. Please help me?

  1. ohhellosugar said: I will never understand why people have such bizarre, extreme reactions to someone doing something unconventional with their hair. it’s just hair. it honestly baffles me.

I don’t really know. That comment came about because she was giving my brother a haircut and I kept jokingly telling her to give him a mohawk. And when they both said no, I joked that I’d get a mohawk because mohawks are cool. I guess it’s just something about older people associating crazy hair with like… sexual abandon and rebellious punks and sinners or something

My parents don’t mind my funny colors much, and I had a boy cut for a year or two that they didn’t object to. So I guess they just assume people will think bad of you if you have a certain style of haircut and don’t want that to happen? *shrug*

My mom telling me over christmas break that if I came home with a mohawk she would take me to a therapist just kind of makes me want a mohawk more.

Let’s be real though, the most I would ever do would be the flopped over kind with one side of your head shaved that’s popular these days. Except turquoise.

Honestly not sure what I’m going to do with my hair for the trip to Boston though. Haircut? No haircut? The green is almost all gone and the pink is just a pale pink. It looks okay, though, so I may just leave it. 

Lot of stuff to do before then that’s more important than messing with my hair, lbr.

First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.

Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!

God I’m excited about this.

Makes you think…

The commodification of higher education is absurd and out of control. It’s used as a way to maintain class structures and is horrifically inefficient. #captialismfail. 

Insurance/health care is another example of capitalismfail, because health costs are higher when they have insurance foot the bill than they would be if we’d never had that system in the first place. Especially emergency services - because capitalism works on the concept of competition, demand, and supply. But when I’m in an emergency situation, I shouldn’t have to think about which hospital is going to be the cheapest. Or if it’s after hours, I don’t get a choice at all and just get stuck with whatever bill they decide to give me. And I’m unusually healthy! People with chronic issues have it even worse.
