a minor irritation
lately people keep talking about the trilby as being the “real” douchebag hat, not the fedora.
look. a trilby is a type of fedora. there are a few different styles of fedora. “fedora” is a much more recognizable term than “trilby”. i am so sorry that dbags with no fashion sense like to wear a hat that is in the same style family as the hat indiana jones wears. truly. i am. but it is the way of the world.
also even if you wear a Real Fedora, if you wear it with slouchy jeans and a button-up hawaiian shirt, i’m sorry. you are still beyond redemption.
so who wants to buy a gently used wacom cintiq 12wx for like $475
EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS!!!!!!!!!
REBLOG…IT CAN SAVE A LIFE OR TWO!!!
WARNING: Some knew about the red light on cars, but not Dialing 112.
An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren’s parents have always told her to never pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.
Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called, 112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren’t, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.
Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.
I never knew about the 112 Cell Phone feature. I tried it on my AT&T phone & it said, “Dialing Emergency Number.”
Especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going on to a safe place.
*Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that 112 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it’s your turn to let your friends know about “Dialing, 112”
You may want to send this to every Man, Woman & Youngster you know; it may well save a life.
This applies to ALL 50 states
PLEASE PASS ALONG TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY, IT CAN SAVE A LIFE….
Works in Canada too guys, just tried it!
Reblogging for anyone of the feminine preference that follow me. (Or for general knowledge.)
please snopes this shit.
112 is not for the US. It’s for the EU. 112 will SOMETIMES work in the US, but if it does, it’s just going to forward you to 911. Calling 911 is always the more direct option.
JUST CALL 911!!!!!
I am gearing up to stream SnK from episode 1. My other blog will have the link to the stream!
NEW BLOG is only for art, projects, and fun things (links to streams and chats and the like!)
unfollow this one as it will be neglected horribly!
hmm yes i guess so. maybe this would be suited to a broad post then about considering a character’s taste in clothes when designing them, then? making it about casual fanart misses the audience that would benefit from this kind of thing the most imo
I DID make it a broad post about character design. The original post that started this all didn’t mention any fandoms or specific art, I just said that it’s something I see come up a lot when people say a character is supposed to be from a small town. I said “that got me thinking” in reference to Tish’s Nightvale drawing but I didn’t specifically reference it at all. She just drew him in a fairly nondescript business casual suit-and-tie, and it got me thinking about how that makes him click so much more than all the “skinny jeans+fashionable vest+ dress shirt+porkpie hat+ fancy shoes” type designs I’ve seen. But I didn’t say that specifically, because I was making a broad post about character design.
your posts just really came across as “hey im not saying this is about the night vale fandom. but it’s the night vale fandom.” especially considering you have made several posts already about how frustrating you find people’s personal interpretations of one of the characters.
Night Vale was clearly the launching point of the topic at least, and it’s not too out there to think - even mistakenly - that you were just trying to be more subtle with your criticism. but to me it totally read as a bit condescending? in the end people are not always trying to make super realistic characters, sometimes they are just drawing fashion for fun or practice!
i misunderstood that you were talking about headcanon fanart on equal grounds as the type of character art that someone makes in an effort to get across their personal character and that character’s background. sorry dude!!
sarahfu replied to your post: sarahfu replied to your post:…
haha, well no, not necessarily a big wardrobe? i never said “huge trendy wardrobe”. but a few pieces that they have that are favorites, that they made or altered themselves or commissioned.
Which is not what I was talking about.
oh i am on my deadblog now so i will reblog
Basically what I’m saying is, while you make salient points in regards to any sort of implication that a podunk character has a whole wardrobe full of trendy stuff, it’s also sort of strange to assume (and this is what I’m getting from what’s being posted) that the pictures are meant to show what the character is always wearing and has constant access to.
While I know it’s hard to get trendy clothes, having lived extensively in small towns in the Bible belt, it’s not impossible. Car trips to bigger cities specifically for clothes shopping are one possibility. Mail order catalogs are another, along with the whole concept of customized clothing, making things yourself, etc.
And of course, there’s the character implication. The implication that the character would want to wear nice looking clothing, and wouldn’t mind going moderately out of the way to do so. If there’s a much bigger implication here, I’m afraid I’m not seeing it! Besides, assuming that a fictional universe operates strictly by the same rules ours does (in regards to ordering clothes, internet, access to fancy outfits, etc) is an oddly specific one, especially if we’re talking about Night Vale here, (i kind of get the impression we are discussing night vale) land of angelic visitors and Lovecraftian station managers.
I'm sorry I was genuinely curious please don't out me like you did that other anon I'm sorry
nah it’s cool dude i gotcha
smooches your grey face
