It might not be your particular interest, but what's your take on horror comics? Do you think the genre and the medium work well together? If so, got any favourite creators/stories?

royalboiler:

Yeah, I’ve written some ideas for horror comics but never drawn them, I feel like maybe my work is too based in comfort for that. 

my favorite creators to do horror comics are Junji Ito and Emily Carroll. 

here’s Ito drawing of Lovecraft: I grew up reading Lovecraft’s stuff. I guess he’s on the sci fi end of horror. with lots of old aliens and ancient creatures of the deep. I feel like he was the 1st artist whose work made me deal with the idea that I could sometimes like work when I found the person to have some lame ideas. Like how Lovecraft’s work seems powered by a fear of the other that also had him spouting some shitty racist ideas. 

legalize but, i guess, don’t decriminalize?

lot of white kids outside new seasons really excited to get a signature for the one but nobody’s asked me to sign for the other, i’m sure that’s next on their list probably

America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues.

A man on a motorcycle got mad at me because, at a four way stop where people cross the street without looking, I waited through several rounds of people crossing and cars from all the other stop signs to go before taking my turn, which he turning right from the next stop sign over had thought was HIS turn, so he tailgated me down the street, pulled up next to me, and punched the window of my car on the driver’s side before driving off.

Southern California, my friends. Where honking is not okay, but physically intimidating women in their cars is totally cool.

The final line to present was Chubby Cartwheels, who served some serious kitschy-chic style. The collection was full of crop tops, leather/pleather skirts, and campy food based prints, such as french fries and doughnuts. There were also lots of sheers and a little bit of leopard. This collection pretty much thumbed it’s nose at every fashion rule in the book, and the results were perfect.”

Loved what they had to say!  Check out the article to see pieces from all the amazing designers at the event!  So much amazing fat fashion!

Congrats Shawna  of Chubby Cartwheels - what a beautiful collection and such an achievement!

23 women show us their favorite positions

When reality television star and fashion blogger Lauren Conrad was asked what her “favorite position” was on a live radio program a while back, the women listening held their breath. Although we take great pride in the work that we do, most of us could relate to being undermined and belittled publicly at work. When Conrad cleverly retorted “CEO,” it was hard not to aggressively high-five our laptop and mobile devices. The words “hell” and “yeah” could be heard all across the nation.

That’s the funny thing about being poor. Everyone has an opinion on it, and everyone feels entitled to share. That was especially true about my husband’s Mercedes. Over and over again, people asked why we kept that car, offering to sell it in their yards or on the Internet for us.

“You can’t be that bad off,” a distant relative said, after inviting himself over for lunch. “You still got that baby in all its glory.”

Sometimes, it was more direct. All from a place of love, of course. “Sell the Mercedes,” a friend said to me. “He doesn’t get to keep his toys now.”

But it wasn’t a toy — it was paid off. My husband bought that car in full long before we met. Were we supposed to trade it in for a crappier car we’d have to make payments on? Only to have that less reliable car break down on us?
This is what happened when I drove my Mercedes to pick up food stamps - The Washington Post

Because I’ve actually seen people make arguments against poor people keeping tools - since that is exactly what this is. If you have a paid off car, you KEEP it, because it works and gives you a survival tool you will no longer have if you get rid of it. Then what? Buses? Not THAT reliable, not at all flexible if you have groceries to carry, or are disabled and doing anything but moving your body to and fro. Cheaper car? That breaks down all the time and sucks away money you don’t have? Maybe it’s even older and more of a gas guzzler. Walking? Not if you have kids you need to bring with you. Thinking the poor don’t “deserve” or that they should “suffer” for their being poor is such complete bullshit. (via jadegordon)
