Every greek demigod legend:






Military Sign Language

YES, this is very relevant to my interests…

HUGE pet peeve of mine, I see it a lot in TV shows. The troops are walking quietly toward their objective. The leader holds up his hand in the halt signal and then



The whole point of these hand signals is to be silent so the close range enemies you’re about to engage DON’T HEAR YOU GIVING COMMANDS

though why I’m still expecting sense out of tv shows I don’t even know


In the tv shows they use speech, because the audience doesn’t know these signs. Everyone can understand simple ‘stop/go/left/right/over there’ but anything more complicated will just confuse the viewer. And people have to understand what they’re watching.

❝ If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration. ❞


Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

I will always reblog this quote.  Hits way too close to home for me.

The most salient part of this, to me, is the underscoring of the fact that there is no “right” college major where you’re guaranteed a job forever. Conservatives love to pretend college graduates working minimum-wage or freelance jobs just didn’t “pick the right major” - those foolish fools studied the arts or literature or something else frivolous, so they deserve crushing debt and no job security! No. There is no magical college major that will let you sidestep the jobless recovery.

Inspired by this post.

I think you’re forgetting one: 



Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (9.29.14): At around 1:30AM CST, the police have released the unjustly arrested protesters. This is still some of the most ridiculous shit I’ve ever seen, but at least folks are back out and headed home to their families. The struggle continues. No justice, no peace! #staywoke #farfromover (PT I) (PT II) (PT III)

"Hold my hands, children," Mother said reaching for us. There was a hitch in her voice that we’ve never heard before and for a moment there her scarred hands shook as she grasped out little palms. It was a tight, strong hold, so very familiar… and yet now it felt disconcerting. As if she had to hold on to use as much as we had to cling to her. 

"Don’t let me go," she said without looking at any of us. Instead, her black eyes kept darting from side to side, from one thick bush to a peeling tree trunk and back. "Whatever happens, don’t let go. This forest is not dead, but neither it is alive any more. Not in the proper sense. Nothing good waits on a lonely traveller between these trees."

WIP of Uinen Calming Ossë

@heckofabecca requested me to draw Ulmo’s peeps 

I’ve drawn Uinen and Ossë plenty of times before in my sketchbooks but I’ve never gotten around to finishing anything more than sketches cause it’s just time consuming to put all the details I want in their designs. 

Uinen design is inspired mostly by one of my favorite little creatures the Manis Shrimp and Ossë’s is mostly inspired by octopus.
