Listeners, this just in: Dean Winchester, you know, the mechanic who works in the car lot near Old Woman Josie’s house? Well, he says that the angels (which we all know don’t exist) revealed themselves to him last night; said one of them had blue eyes, wore a dirty trench coat and helped him replace the tire on a ‘67 Chevy Impala. Apparently, other angels were there too, but they were (and I’m quoting here) “dicks.”
Night vale/SPN crossover! I’ve been wanting to do this since I listened to the first episode.
Just three of thousands of amazing cosplays at LFCC this weekend. I couldn’t get many because it was so crowded, but I did get a lone revolutionary, a freaking awesome Castiel (my fave) and a great Sansa. Obviously loads of Deadpools and Lokis, also loads a Firefly and Frozen.
Stress has a habit of making me forgetful. And as we all know, with great cons comes great stressability. So yeah. As you can probably guess by now, come this weekend I’m gonna be running a stall at the London Film and Comic Con.
I’m not entirely sure whereabouts I’ll be, but I’ll have all the stuff available in my Etsy store, as well as a few extra arts-and-cratfs-based bits-and-bobs. I’ll do my best to update folks as and when I get more info.
If you’re in the area and spot me, do stop by and say hi!
Little warmup doodle I did to get back into drawing. Because what better to use as an incentive to be productive than a disgruntled hankler fish?
(Basically, I wanted something to remind me to stop getting distracted on Tumblr or other parts of the Internet, and since Hank and John are huge role models for me as well as great examples of “getting a hell of a lot of stuff done”, I figured something related would do the trick; but, y’know, putting their faces on my monitor would’ve been kinda weird, so after some deliberation I settled for this motivational hankler fish doodle. It currently resides on the bottom edge of my monitor.)
had to make a compilation of my favorite Supernatural spin-offs and movie posters. these are not mine!!! so if they are yours, add your credit in.
THE LAST TWO MAKE ME WANT TO THROW MYSELF OFF A CLIFF. I JUST SAVED THEM ON MY PHONE
The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here
I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”
Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.
The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.
I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.
this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place
FINALLY AN EXPLANATION
So you can unremember if you can get to a portal fast enough. Noted.
when referring to people, use “glitch” instead of “bitch”. call them glitches. say theyre being glitchy. not only do you get to avoid using a misogynistic slur, you can also imply that their negativity is an anomaly in the web grid of your life and thus needs to be patched
I REALLY LIKE THIS ACTUALLY
WELCOME TO DERSE/PROSPIT *derse dreamers/prospit dreamers playing in the background*
because night vale = derse and desert bluffs = prospit, obviously.
this has probably been made, but hurrr whatever. so here you go. a homestuck/wtnv crossover.
A few fun family reunion photos from LFCC. Had a chat with
Mom Mystique as well, but for some reason didn’t think to grab photos.
(If anyone else has any photos of me from today/knows the other cosplayers in these photos, do tag/give me a nudge :) )
A is for Afanc
The Afanc (Welsh pronunciation: [ˈavank], sometimes also called Addanc, [ˈaðank]) is a lake monster from Welsh mythology. Its exact description varies; it is described variously as resembling a crocodile, beaver or dwarf-like creature, and is sometimes said to be a demon. The lake in which it dwells also varies; it is variously said to live in Llyn Llion, Llyn Barfog, near Brynberian Bridge or in Llyn yr Afanc, a lake near Betws-y-Coed that was named after the creature.

Second drawing I made today. Had this idea that I could make a cryptid-themed series/alphabet to get back into drawing regularly. For this one, I didn’t have a lot to go on appearance-wise (or rather, had too many different things to go on), so I decided to take a crocodile and a beaver and mash them together until I managed to get a result that didn’t look completely ridiculous.
