(You need to say all the bartender’s lines in an Irish accent, it’s how Brian tells it and it’s adorable). So this guy walks into a bar. He sits down and the bartender makes small talk, then says out of nowhere, “Hey, did you see that fence out there? Isn’t it a nice fence?” The guy says yes. Bartender says, “Yeah, I built that fence with my own two hands. But do they call me John-the-fence-builder? Noooo.” The guy (a little weirded out) orders a beer. Bartender says as he’s pulling the beer, “See this bar you’re sitting at? Isn’t it nice? Yeah, I built this bar with my own two hands. But do they call me John-the-bar-builder? Noooo.” The guy really just wants his drink now and finally gets it from this dude. Bartender waits until he drinks it, then says, “That beer you just drank… it was a nice beer, wasn’t it?” “Yeah…” “Yeah, you saw me. I pulled that beer with my own two hands. But do they call me John-the-beer-puller? Noooo… but you fuck one goat…!”
(*wipes away a single tear*) beautiful
reminds me a little bit of the “fuck you clown” joke
Clint paused by the stairwell.
"Nat?" he asked. "What are you doing?"
Natasha crouched poised with an iPhone, one delicate hand curled around the plastic case. One of the lesser-traveled staircases in the tower descended before her, a corridor disappearing to the left. Fluorescent lights cast angular shadows from the ceiling in stark contrast to the smooth interior.
"I’m waiting," Natasha said. She tilted her chin towards the ceiling.
Clint followed her motion. Hidden in the rafters was an elaborate pulley system, all cables and rigs and weights, spanning the length of the staircase and ending in a tripwire barely visible at the foot of the stairs.
A box of ping pong balls hung by Clint’s head.
"Banner will come in from this west entrance," Natasha explained, "and, assuming he’s still preoccupied with his next big research project, won’t watch where he’s going. He pulls the wire, and it’s the Big Guy versus the tiny balls."
"Is that safe?"
"Do it for the vine, Clint."
Clint sighed and shook his head. “Alright, have fun. I’ll be sure to ‘like’ your video when this is over.”
Nat nodded and shifted her weight to make the wait more comfortable. Another five minutes passed since Barton’s footsteps had disappeared, and soon the distinctive swish of the elevator doors echoed from down the hall. Natasha smirked. This was it.
She saw a shadow rounding the corner and hit the ‘record’ button on her phone.
The shadow hopped the wire with the grace of a penguin and turned.
"You’ll have to do better than that," Coulson said. "A tripwire? That’s basic prank material. I expect more from an Avenger."

GODDAMN THIS IS SO COOL TOO HOW IS THIS HAPPENING
Here it is!
first thing I did was get rid of that awful anglicized nose. I didn’t want to make the curves on the nose too dramatic, just aquiline. I also broadened the base of the nose. I based the nose off of my friend Lynn’s, who is 100% Syrian and off of my grandmother’s so the nose is much more Levantine Arab than Gulf Arab or Iranian.
then I worked on the eyebrows. originally they were going to be thicker and straighter, but then I realized that most Arab/Middle Eastern women sculpt their eyebrows so I tried to give them a more angular look.
then I broadened the eyes, which looked too round and just unnatural. I was going to shrink them, but then I realized the proportions of the face would be so godawfully off.
next I went to work on the jawline, which looked bizarre honestly. I wanted her to have a strong jaw like Princess Ameerah of Saudi Arabia. the jaw is what I think makes her look the prettiest, to be honest. I also widened the mouth which I thought was too puckered and weak looking.
I then widened her hips and upper body, widened her arms and just gave her more substance in general. her body proportions were so horrifying in the very first image that I decided that I liked your body modifications but wanted to take it further and make her more realistic.
I really wanted a nice headscarf to cover most of her hair and shoulders but I just didn’t have the time. I got a little lazy on it and a little crazy when I was doing the hair, but that stick straight poof she had just didn’t look Arab or Middle Eastern to me. My sister has a huge, curly bush of hair on her head so I tried to emulate that a little bit. what I really had hoped to do was to make her look at least a little less subservient and docile and a little fiercer and more capable, like Arab women generally were in medieval times when they owned land, got divorces, worked in commerce etc.
In my opinion, Jasmine was too closely based on the modern Middle Eastern woman, who is marginalized due to societal collapse and a return to the far conservative elements of society. Before the early 1900’s this was never the case. History must be taught to reflect the full story, even if in a children’s movie.
I am absolutely in love with her hair. This is great!
Oh my hell yes.
“This is NOT turritella agate!
Turritella agate is the silicified fossils of Turritella genus sea snails from the Cretaceous period. However, if your ‘turritella’ agate is from the Green River Formation in Wyoming, it is actually fossils of Elimia tenera, a freshwater snail from the Eocene. It’s still silicified snail shells, but from a different era and different species that lived in a different environment. It’s very commonly mislabelled, especially by less-scientific sellers like in new age stores.”

Here is a really late blog themed zodiac sign! ;w;
It took me a second to remember what this was for. XD Thank you!
re: Everyone who’s managed to forget how ridiculous this comic is underneath all the drama and death.
this remains to this day one of my favorite panels in homestuck
I’ve done a few commissions where people were willing to pay decently and it was fun and rewarding work. I still felt bad that they could get a piece for $40ish from a handful of other artists instead of my 130+ but they assured me they loved my work/style~ One even returned for another recently and is so excited for another, even bigger project.
I have a stupid dream of one day being good enough to make a living off art online but with bizarre competition like full body+BG paintings for 30(!) dollars it is a little concerning.
Seems you need to be INCREDIBLY talented right now to offer what could be called “decent” prices (200-300) and have consistent clientele.
I’d love to do this casually/freelance and deal with individual art lovers instead of organizations/businesses but if i want to live comfortably…
And yes my experience would be in the furry fandom. I heard DA is even worse but i have no experience at all with them or the community.
