This is a great little website that’s been sitting in my drafts, it has online reproductions of William T. Cox’s 1910’s Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods (with original illustrations), Luke Sylvester “Lake Shore” Kearney’s 1928 The Hodag and Other Tales of Logging Camps, Charles E. Brown’s 1935 Paul Bunyan Natural History, and Henry H. Tryon’s 1939 Fearsome Critters. It also has a history of Paul Bunyan as a folkloric figure, so that’s pretty neat

Basically if you have an interest in lumberjack lore or fearsome critters, here’s a good place to start

Earlier today I was trying to remember the word haboob (you can see how well I was doing, mixing up sounds for starters), and I was on my phone ad noticed that and it redirected to “Death Eater” but I couldn’t search the page on my phone so finally I looked it up again on my computer and it still does that and that’s the only time “Hubabubabarabubs” appears on the page and I don’t why know this is happening googling isn’t helping why why

I think that’s a collared dove - or at least that’s what we call birds like that over here.

Oh yeah, it is, it’s just a new color variant I hadn’t seen before

Like here’s one set of photos and here’s another showing the standard color range I see (the second set has the dark color variant one I see with the darker-colored tail feathers and face)

VARIATION WOO

Haha I was thinking about this post and I realized that I call the boird a pigeon and not a collared dove I kinda just use dove/pigeon interchangeably haha whups

But yeah I mostly mean it’s a new pigeon/dove/bird as in “I haven’t seen this individual before” not so much as “this is a new species at our feeder” because we get both collared and mourning doves here

The common standard mix right now is uh… collared doves, mourning doves, house finches, the two flickers, grackles, red-winged blackbirds, and house sparrows. The occasional sightings are yellow-headed blackbirds, white-crowned sparrows, the bluejay, and goldfinches. Also I guess in the winter a day or two before snow comes we get dark-eyed juncos (of the slate-colored variety).

I mean that’s just the feeder birds there are like meadowlarks and kingfishers and Red-Tailed Hawks and Swainson’s Hawks and Kestrels and Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles in the area, off the top of my head. Actually there’s a nest of Bald Eagles with chicks where an observation area has been cordoned off I might have to go check that out…

I think there are also robins at the feeder? I don’t remember right now. They might just be out of season

If I can ever recommend one thing to you, it is this:

cerastes:

I have several done years of RPing, and this has taken me to countless different forums and, if you are at all familiar with RP forums, let me tell you, they were the lowest of the low some six or seven years ago.

In one of these forums, a legendary tale happened, a tale that, if I can ever recommend one thing to you, it is this:

The Ballad of Edgardo.

A story that happened to an anonymous RPer years ago.

Anyone will be able to appreciate it (and trust me, you will), but if you are kinsmen or kinswomen to me, if you ever had to experience the shittiest of RP forums and their terrible userbases, particularly that one guy that does whatever he wants and is an asshole that clearly godmods but gets away with it because the actual mods don’t give a damn, you will find the beauty behind the ballad that much brighter.

Just trust me on this one. It’s not a particularly long read, either.

I hope you enjoy The Ballad of Edgardo

johanandersenspelvis:

it’s okay to enjoy disney movies with same-face female character design.

as long as you are aware that disney is consistently producing female characters with the same facial structures for a reason — on the basis that they have to look “pretty” and thus presenting a one-face beauty standard.

you don’t have to apologize for liking tangled or frozen or wanting to see big hero six but please do not defend same-face character design there is no excuse

Destroy all attractive WTNV headcanons.

Cecil is based on these.

Okay hold up why the fuck are you shitting on other people’s headcanons though. You aren’t superior because your headcanons aren’t pretty, chill the fuck out.

Oh wow.

  1. I never shat on any specific person’s headcanons, I’m not a complete douchebag. A lot of the “pretty” headcanons are drawn by talented artists that I respect greatly.
  2. My intent was to point out the fact that there is a serious lack of diversity in the WtNV tag. That is all.
  3. I’m absolutely not superior to anyone, most of the artists in the WtNV are absolutely more talented and accomplished than I am.
  4. You are being overly hostile over a statement that was intended to be nothing more than a half-serious jab at the fandom. Which, you gotta admit, is a little stagnant.  All I was trying to accomplish was to get people to realise that they can draw something other than… what everyone else draws. Whatever that may be. And a lot of people have responded very positively to the concept. ‘Cept you. Which leads me to think that maybe you’re just looking to shit on someone yourself?
