Grim Winter Redux - Misc. Selections

May have to do something special when I hit 500 followers lol.

How expensive of a computer do I need to handle a skyrim mod this pretty?

Not too much, all things considered that is. My current rig is about 1,200 to 1,400 dollars. My new one, that I’ll be building over the coming months, is around 1,700 bucks.

I’m technically minded and good with machines, but have almost no background in putting computers together (I mean, I’ve upgraded a video card, but the physical isn’t exactly what I mean). Any pointers?

Well, indoctrinated by a racist society. Questioning is the first step on reeducating yourself.

XKCD vs hand-wringing about what texting does to kids’ literacy

It’s great, and the tooltip’s even better: “I’d like to find a corpus of writing writing from children in a non-self-selected sample (e.g. handwritten letters to the president from everyone in the same teacher’s 7th grade class every year)—and score the kids today versus the kids 20 years ago on various objective measures of writing quality.

THE BABY SMACKED THE CAT WHY ARE YOU BLAMING THE ANIMAL

All the fucking time. People have their pets euthanized because they did something to their kid who fucking hit them or pulled on their tail or got in their face or something. Here’s a better idea: WATCH YOUR FUCKING KID WHEN THEY’RE AROUND ANIMALS. Okay thanks.

^^boldedBut this? Well, that’s how kids learn, isn’t it?they do bad shit, they get bad shit happening right back.I’ll bet that little brat won’t touch the cat again right?
and OP is a fucking prick for trying to blame the cat for defending itself when the kid SMACKED THE CAT IN THE HEAD.
That shit HURTS for a little cat. I’d lash back too.
Asshole.

teach your kid to respect animals, because animals, unlike most humans will not hesitate to kick your ass if you treat them like shit..

So many people wish stupidity were painful, but then object when they see ignorance corrected with pain and little harm.

THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII

No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3

!!!!!
NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!
This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”
All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)
Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.   

Kawaii is punk as fuck, friend.

finally someone put up the whole thing, tragically beautiful

I know someone will ask, so this is from the movie Watchmen. The entire movie has nothing to do with this scene, really, considering it’s about heroes. But it is a beautiful opener. 

If you think Watchmen had nothing to do with this scene ‘because it’s about heroes’ then you totally missed the point of the movie.

Also, really not about “heroes” either.
