Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
aaand here’s what I did with the last .9 of that skein. Also, beads. I have so many gold beads. Madtosh colors are great, I’ll have to get more of it since this yarn is discontinued. The last pic is kinda true to color, it’s hard to capture it accurately, sadly. (@ ravelry)

Man, ghost pokemon are a riot.
Taking a crack at PokeShaming. :U
wonderlandsoul asked: “Have you heard about the Dashcon fiasco? As someone who works cons I thought you might be interested.”
I figured out this was a bad idea back when it was called Tumbl-con USA.
Every warning sign in the world was there, and I’ve been actively warning attendees and artists off of it for more than a year. Because there was no indication that the organizers had any goddamn idea what they were doing I honestly don’t know if there were bad intentions, or if they just made mistakes but here’s the thing:
Everyone seems to think that running a con results in a giant pile of money that the organizers sleep on at night. They look around and say, “X number of people at Y dollars, YOU ARE MONEY GRUBBING BASTARDS,” when in fact it’s a hell of a lot harder and more expensive to run a con than most people will ever believe. Here’s some hard facts:
1. A con looking to survive has two ‘oh dear god’ numbers. The first one is absolute MINIMUM amount of money they can make. The second is the absolute MAXIMUM amount of people they’re prepared to handle. If the organizers are off on more than 10% on either of those numbers, they are in trouble, and it’s not going to end well. Judging by the ‘estimated’ numbers they were looking for and the ‘reported’ numbers I’m hearing, they were way off. They are likely royally screwed on this alone. But…
2. The number no one ever looks at is the hotel block. Hotels cut you deals on the actual ‘convention space,’ dependent on how many hotel rooms you fill. This can be on a sliding scale, but some places do a “you must fill X number of room nights to make this worth our time.” So you get a contract that says in big print, “You will have to pay five thousand dollars for the function space! (provided you fill two hundred hotel rooms. If you don’t, it’ll be twenty thousand dollars!)” Guess which number an inexperienced con runner will pay attention to? The best case scenario. Every. Single. Time.
3. Cons get kicked out of hotels. All the time. Involving the attendees in a public way with an issue with the hotel was a NIGHTMARE of epic proportions and everyone involved is lucky the hotel didn’t call the cops on their asses and have them tossed out.
4. This has nothing to do with it being a ‘Tumblr con.’ This has to do with it being something run by inexperienced people. Anime cons have flamed out like this. MLP cons. Sci-fi cons. Comic cons. I could fill a file folder with cons that were the result of hubris, bad planning, stupid decision making, straight out up and up fraudulent planners. I know of multiple cons that have ended in the negative in the $10-50 THOUSAND dollar range. I could name three RIGHT NOW. It has nothing to do with the fandom. It has to do with the fans running a con who should not be running a con.
We’ll see how it shakes out, of course, but…
Yes. I saw this coming in April of 2013.

I didn’t like the one of these going around so I made my own.What makes a good limited palette? I think it needs both contrast in value and in colour temperature. A gradient from one middle value muddy colour to another is not a good basis for an entire painting.I’ll take some suggestions and feel free to use this - don’t be afraid to mix the colours.(edit: forgot to mention, tag with jellyfish palette if you do one so I can see)
I’m actually finished with this little shawl, just need to block. I could make tons of these and not get tired of it. (@ ravelry)

The clock strikes twelve, sounding the arrival of July 4th… your heart starts racing.
The distant screech of an eagle echoes in the distance…
The faded booming of the fireworks ricochets across the land…
The ungodly cries of tea as it is dumped in the harbor…
You can hear them coming…
