i had to go on a werewolf mini-rant today bc ugh tired of this shit in werewolf books

This.

I am so glad I’ve never read such books :I Kelly Armstrong and Patricia Briggs for me!

Kelly Armstrong, yes. Patricia Briggs…Except for Mercy Thompson (who is a skinwalker, not a werewolf - and honestly one of my favorite female main characters in an urban fantasy), I can’t think of another female werewolf in her books that doesn’t fall into this trope. Maaaaybe Honey, but even Mercy mentions something about her being forced into subservience by “pack rules” and the fact that female werewolves tend to be physically weaker than males. The whole Omega series of books is based around the concept of an omega female werewolf who, while has magical powers of soothing, also must submit (or at the very least tiptoe around) to more aggressive and more physically powerful male wolves. But then I only read the first book, so I could be mistaken.

Went out to the backyard and saw this gallon of tea sitting on top of the recycle bin! Ahhhh summer!#suntea #southernliving #brewing #underthesun #tea #lovehome #mightyleaf

As a Canadian who’s never made it before, can someone explain sun tea to me?

It’s basically where you just use the sun to heat the container the tea is in, thus brewing it slowly. Then you add sugar and can set the tea on ice or put it in the fridge to cool it down. Some people swear by it, but I’ve never been able to really taste the difference between sun-heated iced-tea and kettle-heated iced tea. In my household, we mostly just used the latter. And that’s basically it.

Spikes by TeknicolorTiger
Speedpaint commission for QuebecoisWolf on DeviantArt. His werewolf character, Kara, hanging out a night club.
This was a lot of fun even if it started off pretty challenging. I used a new brush in SAI. I’m also not 100% on how the lighting came out in this but at least the atmosphere is good.

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

And people wonder why I hate that book series! Stop popularizing rape culture seriously.

A fellow RISD friend Devon is the senior concept artist at Motiga and they are about to be releasing Gigantic, which looks like a whole basket of awesome. The character design and the whole visual layout just straight up wins all the points. 

Check out Devon’s work here: Gorrem

And go to the Gigantic website and watch the video! It will make your brain melt.  

THINGS THAT ARE SEVERELY COOL BUT MY COMPUTER WOULD DIE TRYING TO PLAY.

I’m not sure if I could actually play this game. I’d get too distracted by its beauty and just sorta sit there, staring at the screen in awe.

"Human beings don't have a right to water."

sorry-dong-dong:

stfueverything:

Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.

Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”

Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.

Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!

At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.

Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.

In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.

Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!
