Wait a minute…

I have been laughing at this for hours now…

So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.  
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven. 
Good job Internet.

Thank you for this!

Finally a rebloggable version of this idiotic post. 


Signal boosting the proper explanation, because I’ve seen this photo before but always with the mockery rather than the facts, and that’s unacceptable.

Hey, fabulous people—

Sometimes as a lonely artist hermit person I feel as though I verily desire additional friends, and there are many folks on here who appear to share my interests, but Tumblr is so much harder to connect through than LiveJournal was back in the day. If you feel the same and want to talk sometime, my AIM is NeuroSneezure and my email is redtavern AT gmail DOT com.

My current fandoms are mostly Person of Interest, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and the Dresden Files, but I am also a Trekkie, Whedonite, and Homestuck in general. And a hoopy frood. I know where my towel is at all times, I assure you.

Drawing and painting are activities I partake in literally every day because that is both my job and my passion, though I also love writing, particularly screenwriting. I am also obviously a furry if that matters, have been since I was a little kid. I am in a great relationship so am legitimately just looking for friends. Bonus points if you live in/near New Jersey because additional in-person friends would be phenomenal, but obviously that is not necessary.

So if you are into any of the same fandoms et cetera and want to communicate somewhere better made for that than this website… please, send me some proddings sometime!

I hope this doesn’t sound too creepy hahaha. Man, connecting with new people as an adult is tricksey business.

Analog Interface

I’ve been meaning to give this piece her own post on my Tumblr for awhile.

My personal favorite of all the pieces I made for convention season this year. This piece hung in the Anthrocon art show and is headed to FA: United next.

Prior to acquiring my Asus Eee Slates, I used a Dell Inspiron as my primary computer. Over the course of 7 year’s use, I wound up having nearly every part of that computer replaced (thank goodness for extended warranties), including the palm rest and plastic encasing the screen. I held onto the removed screen frame for years and years, thinking that I eventually wanted to use it in a piece of art… and this year, I finally got around to it. This piece was made specifically to fit in that screen frame.

I knew I wanted the piece for that frame to be technology related, and possibly something about being either stuck in or connected to a computer. My specific inspiration finally struck in a really round about way - through the character of Root from Person of Interest. I have always loved both androids and cyborgs, and while browsing tumblr saw someone refer to Root as a “modern day cyborg” because she is so tied into the operation of The Machine, literally has an ear piece implanted to listen to it, and The Machine considers her its “Analog Interface”. That combined with the Samaritan server scene in the season finale made me think up a female cyborg tied into the servers of a machine… Root herself may not be quite so literally/physically a cyborg, but that’s how my round about thought process went. Aspects of the figure have also been given nods to Root, such as her hair and… I decided that if I were to make her character an animal, it’d be a flame point siamese, so hence the species and breed selection.

My eyes are bifocal
My hands are sec-jointed
I live in the future
In my pre-war apartment
And I count all my blessing
I have friends in high places
And I’m upgraded daily
All my wires without traces

Hooked into machine
Hooked into machine
I’m hooked into, hooked into
Machine

I collect my moments
Into a correspondence
With a mightier power
Who just lacks my perspective
And who lacks my organics
And who covets my defects
And I’m downloaded daily
I am part of a composite

Hooked into machine
Hooked into machine
I’m hooked into, hooked into
Machine

~Machine, Regina Spektor

Medium: sketched digitally, carbonized onto cardboard triple-primed with gesso, painted with acrylics, framed with the skeleton of an old Dell Inspiron. Thorough mix of digital and organic components.

Deceptively faaaaaabulous~

ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.

ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg….

These are too absurdly accurate, must reblog to never lose them.
