My cousin Scotty is an actor in China and just did the pilot episode of a sitcom series. “No Pets or Foreigners” 

FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/nopetsorforeigners
Please LIKE the page, this would really help to have a lot of fans, that means more episodes of the show in China will be made.
(My cousin is the one dressed in the Hawaiian Shirt in the image, he plays “MELVIN”)
It’s a sitcom about an American and South African who go to live in Beijing and all the funny mishaps that happen between the landlord, his daughter and the two “Foreigners”. This could really boost his career over there! THANKS!

It’s been a long time since I posted

My cousin Scotty has been living in China for several years now, he’s an actor over there (He gets cast as the Villain in a lot of Chinese movies, He’s played everything from Nazi’s to stovepipe hat wearing period-piece movie baddies!) Well he and his wife just had their first baby boy, Fortune Markus Cox. He is so CUTE and my goodness next to the other newborns he looks massive. The whole hospital was lining up to take pictures with the new baby since it’s really rare they see a Blonde, full bearded, blue eyed New Dad in the hospital. We’re so used to mixed race babies in America being a melting pot, but in places like China it’s insanely rare not to mention he’s a “movie star’s” son too, little Fortune has had his picture taken for magazine’s already and he’s just three days old!

He got Scotty’s dimple in his chin and Lena’s cheek dimples. I threatened my cousin, on pain of death, he had better make it home for our family reunion at least ONCE while Fortune is still a baby so I can kiss all that fat, chubby sweetness and FINALLY meet his wife!

Next time you gear up for a photoshoot in your sexy gender-swapped cosplay, just remember it’s all been done before. As long as there have been costumes,. there have been sexy variants of characters and uniforms. Back in the 1890s, burlesque dancers were dressing up as fairies, magical creatures, and gender-swapped versions of pirates, crusaders and gentlemen adventurers.

I would totally put my face 4 inches from her chest and scream, “I’M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!” And I’d make a point never to take my eyes off her boobs until she got so uncomfortable and creeped out that she decided to leave, go back home, sit on her bed in the dark, and think about how completely stupid she was to write “STILL NOT ASKING FOR IT” while asking for it.




This woman’s a disgrace.




But she’s not asking for it. This is a human body, nothing more, nothing less. It’s not being sexualized, in fact, she’s covered her nipples too. I’m sorry, h-plus, that you feel that your body and the body of other women should be considered a disgrace. Do you feel uncomfortable when looking at pictures in the doctor’s office of a woman’s naked body? And do you, leftybegone, get uncontrollably horny at the same sight? Control your python (or garden snake), man, you’re not 12. Have some maturity over the matter. If you did that to that woman, leftybegone, you’d just be putting a bad face on us guys, making us seem like sex-crazed, immature horndogs. Maybe you are one, but I’m tired people making that assumption of us as a gender. It’s disgraceful. She wouldn’t think it was stupid of her to do that if you did. You’d just make her movement more powerful.




Rape (noun):the crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse.
Men aren’t primal fucking animals. They’re humans that are completely capable of resisting their urges. I bet you (leftybegone) are a kid with some serious hormones since you, obviously, can’t control yourself.
“She was asking for it”. Really? Can you really blame an individual for someone else’s lack of control? The mere fact that a woman is more likely to be assaulted if she wears certain types of clothing does not make it right. She could walk around naked and that still doesn’t excuse rape. The solution to the problem is not for women to “dress less slutty” but for men to realize that a woman’s choice of dress is not an open invitation to sexual assault.

but then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you




We (men) are not fucking sharks!
We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct
We are capable of rational thinking and understanding. 
Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it. 
Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.
Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them. 
You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed. 
What is so fucking difficult about this concept?

like are conservatives on tumblr even real people, or just bots that spew misogynist bullshit? it’s hard to tell

YES. End rape culture mindset! Men can control themselves, women must give consent.

artist-confessions:

Really low prices make me less likely to commission an artist.Me: I’m not an artist. I do commission artists - I spend around $300-600 a month on digital art commissions.I sometimes find an artist who has really impressive work, or a unique style, or something else that makes me think “I should commission this person.”. Then I look at their prices and they are crazily low. As in less than 20 dollars for a colour full body character.And I don’t commission them. Because I can’t pay prices that low and feel good about myself for doing it.I know it takes hours to draw even one character. Plus the time it takes to study the brief, look at the references, communicate with me, etc etc. No way are they making even minimum wage this way, let alone a living wage.I commission art because it’s fun. It’s my hobby. If I’m knowingly paying someone slave wages to support my hobby, it isn’t fun.To artists who undercharge: Please reconsider. I’ve heard many reasons why you decide to do this (see below). But if you price your work like you don’t respect it, you won’t get clients who will respect you or your work either. You charge peanuts, you get monkeys.To commissioners who push for these prices: Have some respect. Not just for the artists, but for the other commissioners out there. You’re giving us all a bad name. If you can’t afford decent prices, don’t be mean about it. Save up, or find some other hobby. Or hey, learn to draw.
Comments I get whenever I say the above: 
"No-one will buy commissions from me at decent prices." - That’s a pity. But you realise by underpricing like this you are making your problem worse, by contributing to the “art should be dirt cheap” mindset that seems to exist in dA and other places? (okay mostly dA, that place is a cesspit) Besides, there are other things you can do than keep lowering prices. There’s tons of advice in dA:'Official' Pricing Your Commissions or Artwork ThreadFinding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!And other places:How to get commissions: A guideGetting the Most Out of CommissionsIf none of the above helps you… maybe you need to reconsider if you are at the right stage in your development to be offering commissions. Sorry.
"I’m only doing this for fun, I don’t care about the money." - Good for you. But there are others that are trying to make a living doing this. Have some consideration for them, yes?
"It’s the clients pushing my prices down." - Gah. Then your clients are awful people who don’t respect you. It’s a trap though - you charge low prices, you get cheap clients. There’s only one way out of that trap.
(Commissioner says) “But I want this drawn and I can’t afford higher prices.” - I want to live in an exact replica of Wayne Manor, but I can’t afford that. So, um, I don’t. Simplify your idea, or don’t commission it until you can afford to do so without ripping off the artist.
(Commissioner says) “By paying less per artist I can support more artists.” - No. Just… no. You are not supporting artists, you are exploiting them. Paying less per artists lets you exploit more artists.
"Just tip the artist." - I have done that, but it sends the wrong message. Tipping isn’t the norm in this game, so when I tip artists assume it’s because they did an extra-awesome job, when in fact I’m tipping them because they did their normal-awesome job. Plus if an artist is charging one-third or one-quarter what they should be, do I tip them 300%?
(Image by me. Not an artist, remember? The price list is made up, but based on real lists I’ve seen recently.)
submitted by -badgermushroom

I thought I was charging too much and I tried the slash price thing when I REALLY needed the cash and I got zero takers and only “I wish I had money” and I was only charging $5. The article’s logic however is tragically flawed. If she doesn’t feel right paying “Slave wages” even if she loves the artist she decides to not commission at all rather than offer to pay more since she’s willing? Sorry but that is seriously fucked up logic. “Hey I like you, and am willing to pay more, but since you’re asking for so little I don’t pay you at all and not get art I want.” WTF?

While I thank you for valuing artist’s like me, reality in this economy is terrible. You will never get rid of commissioners who want everything including the kitchen sink for pennies out of the system, your lovely comments about how they are exploiting us falls sadly on deaf ears.

If we’re charging next to nothing is because a lot of us NEED whatever amount we can get, PLEASE TIP more if you can afford it, even 300% and up we’d be grateful and probably draw you a “thank you” for free in return. (I would). So if you value us, offer to pay more in negotiations over your piece and make our day! Please don’t blame us for trying to make a buck and then punish us by skipping us over because we’re desperately trying to make rent, buy food, pay the utilities, etc… with our slashed price scale. That does no one any good.

He MOTORBOATED ME, right before that second pic! WHY OH WHY did they not snap the picture sooner? I just said “Please let’s just be stupid, I hate normal pictures” and he was like "YES! It gets boring standing here!" So he basically picked both poses. He is AMAZING. I got to talk to him nearly a half hour one one one earlier that same day… (sorry people behind me in his line!) But we got talking about a musical we were both in at the same time (Me in Chicago, He naturally in London, not the same production, just the same Musical.) and well… I got juicy West End backstage gossip shit. I’m not passing that up to hear!

I will have better copies of these later, but not the ones where he signed them. So these get posted too.
