CLAY MASK TIMMMEEEEEE.
Heichou’s back muscles when he breaks that guys nose. <3
The CFO of my company (Spectrum Labs) retired today, and at his retirement party I found out he used to be a professional hockey player. Here’s a photo from 1965.
We’ll miss you, Brian Watts! :< Thank you for always telling me good morning and talking to me about how nice the weather has been.
He truly enjoys life— he takes all of his lunches and breakfasts in the courtyard, standing. I see him when I come in because he’s coring an apple and dipping it into peanut butter at 8AM. I think he was the only person who stopped to smell the flowers with me this week, because Spring was truly in the air. I never got to play raquetball with him and the VP of Manufacturing. Oh well, he said he’ll visit when he’s in the area.

A WIP— I have a lot or research I need to do.
“Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.”
The Cool Girl has many variations: She can have tattoos, she can be into comics, she might be really into climbing or pickling vegetables. She’s always down to party, or do something spontaneous like drive all night to go to a secret concert. Her body, skin, face, and hair all look effortless and natural — the Cool Girl doesn’t even know what an elliptical machine would look like — and wears a uniform of jeans and tank tops, because trying hard isn’t Cool. The Cool Girl has a super-sexy ponytail.
Jennifer Lawrence And The History Of Cool Girls
The Cool Girl never nags, or “just wants one” of your chili fries, because she orders a giant order for herself. She’s an ideal that matches the times — a mix of feminism and passivity, of confidence and femininity. She knows what she wants, and what she wants is to hang out with the guys.
Cool Girls don’t have the hang-ups of normal girls: They don’t get bogged down by the patriarchy, or worrying about their weight. They’re basically dudes masquerading in beautiful women’s bodies, reaping the privileges of both. But let’s be clear: It’s a performance. It might not be a conscious one, but it’s the way our society implicitly instructs young women on how to be awesome: Be chill and don’t be a downer, act like a dude but look like a supermodel.
You probably know someone playing a Cool Girl in real life, and you probably resent her — unless you’re a straight dude, in which case you probably think she’s great. But Lawrence performs Cool Girlness with such skill, such seamlessness, that it doesn’t seem like a performance at all. I’m not suggesting that Lawrence is intentionally inauthentic, scheming, or manipulative: Rather, like all the Cool Girls you know, she’s subconsciously figured out what makes people like her, and she’s using it. But is this persona truly “cool,” or is it a reflection of society’s unreasonable and contradictory expectations of women?
Jennifer Lawrence is by no means the first nationally visible Cool Girl. Olivia Munn, Olivia Wilde, and Mila Kunis are recent also-rans, but the Cool Girl has a genealogy that traces all the way back to silent Hollywood. Famous Cool Girls are women who became stars during periods of societal anxiety over increasing freedoms for women, and as people quietly wondered whether women, once emancipated, would become homely, castrating bitches. Cool Girls have been proof positive that a woman could be liberated and progressive and yet pleasing to men, both in appearance and in action.
Yet the Cool Girl’s cool is ephemeral. We’ve been anticipating the J.Law backlash for months, but if and when it comes, it’ll have less to do with Lawrence and more to do with the need for a new articulation of the Cool Girl to keep the myth alive. This is an anxiety that needs constant soothing, and one star can provide only so much reassurance. One minute you’re cool, perfectly balancing the progressive and the regressive, but when that balance falters, you’re too much, too sexual, too loud, too performative, and the cultural backlash sweeps you under.
MY SUNBLOCK WAS IN MY EYES AND I WAS BLIND FOR LIKE A QUARTER OF A MILE!!!! I need to get sunblock that doesn’t burn when it runs into your eyes with sweat. :,3 Anyway, I walked that portion, lol.
I haven’t run for a while! Two weeks ago I was super sick, then last week it rained so all of us Southern California people hid indoors.
I did not know that! I didn’t want to invest a lot of time in paying attention to that person, honestly. In fact, I didn’t even realize there was a 20 page thread about it on DoA. It’s a shame that it’s not as benign as what I thought.
I really don’t know what people are thinking when they do stuff like that, honestly. My initial reaction is that perhaps he is one of those people who believe that as long as it’s a derivation— even if it appears to be photos put through a bunch of filters— it’s his to own and sell without any credit or disclaimers. Reminds me of the Mijn Schatje BJD art theft.
Attention BJD owners!
If you photograph your crew and put them on DevArt… there’s a good chance this so called “artist” has stolen your photo, run it through a filter and is currently claiming it as his own. And as if that’s not bad enough, he’s also got a Kickstarter project going to sell an artbook of “original” paintings, all made up of other people’s images.
He’s grabbed more than half my gallery. He’s even using official photos from Iplehouse and is dumb enough to even pilfer a photo of Ezio of Assassin’s Creed.
Report him, send him messages, spread the word. Make him realize that no, he cannot get away with stealing someone else’s creations and hard work.

Please signal boost this!!
He’s stealing TONS of my dolls for this. I’m in the midst of doing composites of my originals with his thievery’s…
Further spreading around the word of this ridiculous man who calls himself an “artist.”
