What bothers me about Hogwart's paintings is that they're all realistc or medieval-ish and just makes me wonder what happens if a wizard paints some cubist nonsensical shit. Would it move? Would it talk? Would it ask you for the password, or would it tell you about the meanings of within? I guess we'll never know because Dumbledore is not a fan of modern art
“And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.”—"Why Don’t the Unemployed Get Off Their Couches?" and Eight Other Critical Questions for Americans (via seriouslyamerica)
New Thor is great but I'm just confused over her armor?? Like what the hell is that waistbelt/garter/indented chestplate about.
well i guess youll have to ask the artist abt that?
on another note this reminds me: its funny because few ppl question the ridiculousness/logic of male superhero armor/costume (except maybe namor’s) and yet put a waist-shaping garter on a female superhero and everybody’s up in arms because all of a sudden every bit of accessory/opening needs to have a function because PATRIARCHY. god help the artist if they’re doing it all willy-nilly.
i know weve gotten real sick of highly sexualized female armor/costume and now we’re extremely vigilant/critical of how a female character is dressed, but sometimes designers put additional decorations that are useless yet perfectly harmless based on their personal aesthetics. just like how they treat male armor. it mostly serves to distinguish their design from another, not to insult anyone. honest. as long as the costume stays perfectly relevant and functional to the character, i say let her have her darn garter.
In lion prides, there is only one male lion, and the rest are lionesses. That means in the Lion King, Mufasa would have been Nala’s father as well as Simba’s. Guys, we watched and loved incest as children. Oh my god.
