I just heard about the new Common Core standardized tests today (on the Colbert Report, of all places), and holy shit, there are questions intended for second graders that leave me with no earthly fucking idea of how to even interpret them, and I’m a twenty-year-old adult. I’ve written financial statements from journal entries yet I can’t even figure out the shit that they’re asking 7-year-olds now.
It’s not just the collegiate level that’s suffering; the U.S. educational system is fucked in its entirety. And no, this isn’t unique to Common Core at all; I remember vapid coursework and red tape to detangle even back in the early 2000s. If anything, my primary education has done more to prepare me for the same feeling of dissapointment that I feel when I walk into the DMV than anything else…
Okay, so most of you are probably wondering… what the hell did I buy? Well, ignoring all rules of English grammatical structure, this the hell did I buy:
My most recent eBay misadventures resulted in this item: one of the last Dobros made by lutheir Don Gann, built of solid cherry wood. This will be my first major resophonic guitar project, and I’ll finish it to my own custom specs.

I’m sorry but I’m totally picturing your icon sitting on a computer screen like a dragon on its pile of hoarded jewels.
I could also use some sleep… in precisely 1 day 16 hours.

Still guarding that eBay item with my life.
Normal bodily functions will resume in 1 day 18 hours.
Jesus Christ why aren’t you working for Disney. D:
Because Disney’s love for steam railroading died with Walt’s and Ward Kimball’s passing… for the most part, anyway; unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be a profitable direction for them anymore. Now they’re just cranking out formulaic love paragraphs with carbon-copy recolors of the “ideal feminine face” that they discovered in Tangled & Frozen.
Try furaffinity or deviantART. No one will know.
Both of those options are precisely 48% worse than Tumblr.
the-note-of-blazrman asked: Are you planing to do more art of Loar and some webcomics?
EDIT: Probably not on this site. I’ve had too many problems with people stealing and selling artwork, and between that and the general vitriol that I have for this site and the vast majority of its users, I will probably be limiting the business that I conduct here unless conditions improve or no alternative can be found.
