fangirling out

Art!  My art!  My terrible art! XD 
Glad I finally got this gal/guy on something other than paper, though.  His/her general design has been doodled in margins for years.  She’s/he’s a wind mage, I think.  His/her head’s also generally not drawn that big. >u<;; I tried at perspective and failed.  (Yes, her/his head’s an eye, lol.  I haven’t quite decided whether he/she was cursed to look like that, or just is like that.)  She/he also has arms, they’re just under the cloak right now.
*also does not know how to size images down*

You guys. You guys.  These are the most adorable things ever.  Despite being American, I’m still a pretty big soccer fan so dazzlingly adorable birds + soccer references = me going crazy right now.

There are still some things we could work on, but on the whole I&#8217;m pretty damn happy to be where I am.
Fight the good fight, everyone!

Whelp, the fireworks have started. :T They’ve actually been going off here and there since the clock struck midnight.  I appreciate your high spirits, my fellow countrymen, just be sure not to set the state on fire. ;P

Fireworks time!

Friendly reminder to microchip your dogs, make sure their tags and chips are updated, and write your phone numbers in big black sharpie on their collars that can be read from a distance if you have the kind of dog who won’t readily approach people.

Get your doggies plenty of exercise on the 4th before the parties begin. Have their cozy hiding spots and/or crates ready for them. If you’re having people over, confine the dog(s) or make sure they can’t run out. Stay home with your pets if you don’t know how they’ll react to fireworks… You’d be surprised how panicked even the most well-adjusted dogs get!

I’ve worked and volunteered in pet care and rescue - I’ve seen the worst, so I tend to prepare for the worst. It’s a terrible time of the year for pets. Intake at the shelter is high (which here means kill rates also go up for want of space), lost animal reports are high, and number of pets hit by cars spikes. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your bestest buddies.

Just a friendly heads-up!

QI where are you?!?!

Just went to watch an episode of QI and every single video I pull up on youtube now says “This video is not available in your country” and I’m trying not to panic and no one else seems to be mentioning the same problem and I just watched it yesterday and oh my god what is happening today was already frustrating enough don’t do this to me!

Hi there friend! Your ask box is off so I can’t send this privately but have you considered this post? http://oscarwetnwilde.tumblr.com/post/89336067740/a-reminder-that-you-can-watch-all-of-the-episodes

I did try that site, but I have to admit that those kinds of sites always felt a little sketch/like they posed a greater risk of me accidentally clicking or downloading something I didn’t want to.

However, I did find a chrome add-on that’s been working beautifully: ZenMate. It had pretty good ratings, the stated privacy policy seemed fairly straight-up, and I have successfully been watching QI episodes on youtube all evening. :D (I’m assuming youtube hasn’t reversed the block.)

Thank you, though, for replying! <3

Face-palming and head-desking all night, yo.

Weeeeeeelllll&#8230; Solar energy wouldn&#8217;t be completely sufficient for some regions (think ones that don&#8217;t necessarily get a lot of sun year-round), electricity can&#8217;t be transmitted infinitely large distances, either, so you couldn&#8217;t just stick them all in the middle of Africa (just mentioning because that&#8217;s what the images might imply to some), and our battery technology isn&#8217;t necessarily sufficient to store enough energy during the day to meet nighttime energy demands. So if we&#8217;re only talking solar energy then, no, were not necessarily ready to go right now. But solar energy mixed with other forms of renewable energy (which also have their own drawbacks that would need to be balanced)? Yeah, we could probably do that. (Though not without energy costs going up for a few decades until tech advances sufficiently for renewable energy to be as short-term inexpensive as fossil fuels.)

Tea spirit prints are now available!

Hey everyone! There’s free shipping worldwide on INPRNT this weekend, if you were considering getting a print :D

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I need to think of which one to pick! ó0ò These are just gorgeous, I’ve loved them since you first posted them.

[edit]: I got two of them! The wolf (medium size) and the deer (largest size). I already know how and where I’m going to frame and hang them, they’re going to be so pretty!!

New Zelda announced for the Wii U and its incredibly androgynous hero might actually be a female Link. I’m assuming she’s a girl until proven otherwise because I am an optimist.

If there’s still no female protag, Nintendo, listen. You have my email.

Update to this. My new theory is that it is actually Zelda herself, or possibly another non-Link character. Here’s why:

  1. In an interview today, producer Eji Anouma said “No one explicitly said that that was Link,” and a few months ago hinted that they would be shaking up the Zelda/Link dynamic.
  2. The horse in the trailer is not Epona, who in every game is portrayed as red with a white mane.
  3. The character is right-handed, not left-handed, as all incarnations of Link are (aside from the Wii-controller games). 
  4. While wearing a tunic similar to Link’s from Wind Waker, the character is also wearing Gerudo-styled gauntlets. 
  5. The character is not carrying a sword of any kind, a first for any portrayal of Link in Zelda promotional material.

Any one of these pieces of evidence are weak on their own, but collectively I think we can pretty confidently say that the hero of the next Zelda game isn’t Link, and may very well be Zelda.

It’s Zelda herself. Nintendo made it a point to hint that the character in the trailer wasn’t Link, and for every reveal of Zelda featuring Link as the protagonist, it always features him wielding The Master Sword and Hylian Shield. It’s only fitting that for a game featuring Zelda herself, they’d feature her signature weapons: a bow and magical arrows. It’s her weapon of choice in every single game where she has to fight. She uses them in Smash, she uses them in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors, she uses them in Wind Waker in the final battle against Ganon, etc.

Discuss!

The first arrows she fires are fire arrows:

But then, she switches to this:

And, those could be ice arrows, but I’m 99% sure they’re light arrows instead, and the trailer ends there because Nintendo doesn’t want to give away the effect of the arrows hitting and making it too obvious that it’s Zelda.

zblaster has also pointed out that she’s wielding the bow and arrow like a right-handed person. Link is left handed, and only right-handed in TP and SS because of the controls. Even if the game supported the Wii Mote, it would be pointless to show off right-handed wielding because the main control would still have to be based on the gamepad (not everyone has a Wii Mote, but every Wii U owner has a gamepad). She’s wielding that bow and arrow exactly how she wields it in every other game: right-handed. It’s not a super solid theory, but something to consider.

ZELDA ZELDA. I love how the possible zelda, zelda game hype has over shadowed the open world aspect just like YEA THATS COOL BUT
 ITS LADY TIME.

If the main character ends up being Zelda or another female character, I will buy a Wii U and put a preorder down on this game the first second I can.  That’s a promise, Nintendo.
