couple-a-hundred-of-em:

As a college student, currently really hungry with nothing to eat, I understand how hard it can be to get food. Sometimes you really just don’t have the money to eat and when you do, you waste it all on fast food instead of stocking up on cheap things because you’re so tired of Ramen Noodes and canned food you could barf. So, I’ve composed a list of recipes and resources that will fit a college kid’s budget and appetite. Don’t go hungry! <3

mats-bloody-hat:

nanyoky:

I want to write an alternative version of Romeo and Juliet where instead of being a little ponce and trying to work things out for himself, Romeo asks his smarter friends what to do about the whole thing and Benvolio and Mercutio come up with the world’s greatest plan:

Marriage of convenience between Juliet and Mercutio.

Think about it.

Juliet’s parents want her to marry into the Prince’s family. Mercutio is a good compromise between no marriage and Paris.

Mercutio probably won’t get his inheritance if he keeps being HELLA FUCKING GAY ALL OVER THE PLACE so a beard is only a benefit to him.

They would probably get along great rolling their eyes at how adorably stupid Romeo is.

Romeo and Benvolio could get a “bachelor pad” right next to Juliet and Mercutio’s house. Every night, Romeo and Mercutio high five as they hop the fence to go bang their one true love.

The second half of the play is just all of them trying to keep up the charade and being “THIS CLOSE” to getting caught all the time. But everything ends nicely because true love conquers all.

Everybody wins. Nobody dies.

Outrage at Museum of Fine Arts Boston over Disgraceful “Dress Up in a Kimono" Event

Cultural appropriation controversy erupts as Bostom Museum of Fine Arts encourages visitors to try on kimono. Here’s a quote from the “Stand Against Yellow-Face” group protesting:
“The act of non-Japanese museum staff throwing these kimonos on [passersby] as a ‘costume’ event is an insult not only to our identities, experiences, and histories as Asian-Americans in America, but affects how society as a whole continues to deny our voices today.“
The underlying question seems to be, in what context might a westerner wearing a kimono become offensive (and offensive to who)?

Full Article at Artnet

While I fully understand that many non-Asians, especially those who don’t share more than a passing interest in Japanese culture, are going to view this event as nothing more than a “costume” or “dress up” event, does this become less offensive if one stops to realize that the kimono itself is most likely considered a “costume” within a Japanese kimono wearing context as well?

I mean, both the replica and the original kimono in the painting, are clearly an example of uchikake style kimono. As clothing, uchikake serve only three purposes since the Edo period: outer kimono for pleasure quarter courtesans (oiran & tayuu), outer kimono for bridal ensembles, and outer kimono of a courtesan costume for onnagata kabuki actors. Analyzing the kimono for clues, you quickly realize that it isn’t a wedding uchikake because it doesn’t share the furisode style sleeves typical of bridal wear and the motifs on the uchikake are not the typical wedding motifs that promote happiness and longevity.

As a possible courtesan garment, the sleeves are typical, but the prominent samurai motif near the hemline is problematic. Courtesans, who would often doll themselves up in several layers of kimono and uchikake when making processions within the pleasure quarters, had to pick up and tie off the hems of their uchikake around their hips in order to expose their nagajuban and koma-geta (very sexy) as well as to prevent soiling the kimono on the dirt streets. The placement of the samurai means, if they tied their uchikake as normal for processions, it would be largely obscured, which defeats the purpose of their attention-seeking ensemble. Thus it strikes me as odd that it was ever used by an actual oiran or tayuu.

As a stage costume for a kabuki actor (i.e. onnagata) playing a courtesan, this kimono is, by my estimation, perfect! As stated above, it fits the general requirements for a real world courtesan, but the design on the hem isn’t an issue. Since the actor doesn’t have to worry about dirtying the hem and lining of the kimono on the far cleaner stage, he can wear it trailing and show off the samurai design.

As someone who has a very thorough knowledge of kimono and is involved in the online kimono wearing community, it’s my firm belief that anyone who is knowledgeable (or interested in learning) about kimono would recognize right away that this is not a “wearable” item. This is a kimono that was made to be a costume from it’s inception because it was, most likely, a commissioned kimono as part of a courtesan ensemble for a kabuki play. Especially when the Japanese were still a “wearing-kimono-every-day” kind of people, Japanese people would have picked it out as a costume right away.

Now, I’m not saying it’s wrong to be offended that people are going to don this replica and (with nearly 99.9% certainty…) going to strike some kind of seductive pose and spout something along the lines of “oooh, I’m such a sexy geisha!” as they take pictures. The very thought makes my blood boil and it’s not even my culture they’re mocking! I’m no one to tell you what you should and shouldn’t be offended by. 

My concern is, I guess, that I don’t want people to think that they (i.e. Boston Museum of Art or Monet) took some sort of “sacred garment,” some “beautiful elegant piece of art,” and made a circus out of it. This garment in particular, again by my estimation, was commissioned as a costume by actors to garner the attention of their audiences. This kimono isn’t being MADE INTO a circus, it was DESIGNED TO BE a circus!

tl;dr The kimono, during Monet’s time and the present, would be classified as a costume (i.e. stage kimono), not an everyday kimono or even as a sacred garment. Therefore, why is it offensive for non-Asian people (ignorant though they may be) to wear this replica as a “costume,” when that’s what Japanese people would, and did, consider this kimono in the first place?

If you want to read japanese, then you might want a browser extension called rikaikun for google chrome or rikaichan for firefox. When it's turned on, and you hover your cursor over the japanese word, it will tell you the meaning(s) of it. I use it when I encounter new kanji that I don't understand. There's tutorials on how it works and how to download it on youtube, if you're interested.

Hello! Okay I will looking for this thank you so much ♥ Have a nicde day!! ♥

having a flesh vessel is so annoying?????? like they have to be constantly watered, they have to be in specific temperature range to be comfortable, i’ve had a headache for like seven hours and nothing i do will get rid of it,

physical forms are so inconvenient??????????????

I knocked mine over yesterday and scraped off some of the outer barrier and it keeps sending me really annoying warning messages about it

blood.dll has caused an access violation exception

I still can’t figure off how to turn off the monthly compile time. It goes for like 7 days wrecks all the system and takes so much CPU time. 

I got the wrong model, too, and there’s no returns or exchange policy. I’m trying to make do as best I can with aftermarket modifications, but even that’s a real bind. And then I have to deal with all the purists who try to tell me I should be happy with the model I was given.

My model seems to have been made with all third-party pieces and is falling apart at a much faster rate than anticipated. I’d really like to know who I contact about this because I was supposed to get a licensed version.

mine was apparently shipped with defective visual-input parts which went unnoticed at the time, and while aftermarket add-ons are able to approximate normal performance, actual repair or replacement of the defective parts is neither feasible nor cost-effective

also the OS has this big honking flaw where it freezes up a lot and all the memory access to anything but negative shit gets locked out, plus all the code regarding physical interface with external modules appears to be either corrupt or missing

i wish to complain

i don’t know what you guys are even talking about, i got the model that turns into a race car if you fold it right
