LIGHT UP THE NIGHT

My Arm Can Fly: Art Blog


I'm a 26-year-old gender fabulous lesbian with a handsome husbando. I like all sorts of things, but consider the Protomen and art dolls/toy monsters to be my enduring fandoms.


Who I Follow

I’m watching some learn to crochet videos today, and I’m using the auto-CC because I have no speakers on this computer. Mostly the captioning has been good, but this video went hardcore at the last minute.

"Gee, I’ve really got my hands full with my needle felting work, and I’m sad that I haven’t gotten to spend any time on embroidery lately. I really want to finish up the detailing on my Varric tunic, that would be great to have done. I also want to develop a sewing pattern for a creature, and I have a concept in mind for my next felted creature design that involves patterned fabric over an embroidery hoop…."

"I’m gonna learn crochet."

Who’s Alex?

Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

kick ass

I’ve seen this on various blogs now, and while I’m 100% behind challenging androcentrism, the design of the poster already leads the eye to the masculine-looking child*. I’d count that as cheating.

*not that either of them couldn’t be either gender. But I kinda doubt the people who made the poster had that in mind. Besides, that would have the unfortunate implication that you can only be successful in a perceived masculine field if you present as masculine.

But down at the bottom it actually says “(shown here with her brother Chris)”

Wow, um. Tumblr REALLY likes my parents’ cats.

Tumblr, you like cats. Enjoy these pictures of my parents’ cats.

God DAMN, ACNL, ALL I WANT IS A LITTLE BREATHING ROOM AROUND MY HOUSE. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK? POPPY IS ADORABLE BUT I’M GOING TO HAVE TO GET HER OUT OF HERE BECAUSE SHE”S MOVING IN ON MY GODDAMN FRONT PORCH WHAT THE FUCK.

I swear to god, I don’t care if it costs extra all I want is to build multiple public works in one day so I can prevent this kind of bullshit.

Do I have any ACNL friends who got a Marine Pop Wall or (more importantly) a Red Snapper Chair during the fishing tourney? I’m only looking for those last two, so I’d love to buy or trade for them!

Question mark?

LEGACY CHALLENGE FINAL RESULTS!

I managed to scare a total of 490 points in my ten-generation Legacy Challenge! My final heir didn’t manage to grab a circuit, but I might cheat and buy him one now that the challenge is over. I intend to keep him as a permanent part of my lair.

This was fun, but extremely time-consuming! I’m not sure if I’ll do another one.

Everybody admire my tenacity for breeding ten generations of dragons!

REALLY REALLY OBVIOUS broken pants zipper is a GREAT way to start the workday.

Observation:

Nerd events which are focused entirely on the original thing are populated largely by dudes. Not entirely, but generally more than half.

Nerd-THEMED anything is populated at least 70% by ladies.

Man, I’m trying to do some NaNo planning (not doing it last year sucked, so I’m giving it another go) and I really don’t want to confront rules for magic. My setting has magic from a whole bunch of different sources and includes animal-people and it’s very complicated. Maybe my low-magic animal people shouldn’t actually shapeshift?
