I feel like there are a lot of good reaction pictures in this painting.

puddinbun answered: Hmm… Maybe try any Japanese/Asian supermarkets? I’ve seen matcha kit kats around…

Ah, I plan to try that, but there aren’t many Asian marts near me… and I couldn’t find many stores with an online catalogue in English. I guess its a good excuse to go looking though because Asian marts are the best

sultan-of-sentiment answered: Looks like there’s some H-marts in Australia from what I saw on their website, that is the go-to place for Asian anything.

The only one I saw was in Victoria, which isn’t my state— unless I’m looking at the wrong site? The one I saw mostly just listed US stores : / Thanks anyway though!

Matcha Chocolate!

I tried matcha flavoured chocolate for the first time the other day and I loooove it. I know that it is hard to get in Australia, though— do any aussies following me know places I could find it? I don’t want to have to buy the (expensive) powder to fill my mighty need

sunvapor: What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

clehmentine:

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

Hey guys, I’ve been getting a lot of new followers recently and I wanna say hi and thank you for following me! My name is Tera but you can call me Left! I’m 24 years old and I’m living in LA with my best friend/fiancee Marcia. <3 I work outside of the arts industry, but drawing is something I…

Help a friend out!! Car accidents are my #1 fear and I’m so, so glad Marcia made it out okay.

Sorry for how quiet this blog has been. I watch a lot of bullshit videos on youtube when I’m not working, lately— many are awful low-budget poorly animated movies (i love it), and some are calming videos about dogs or cooking or dogs that are cooking when i want or need to relax.

I made this blog just to keep track of things i found memorable, but anyone can follow if that kind of thing works for you, too. Strap yourself in and watch me be incredibly sincere about Gnomeo and Juliet.

Pictured: my landlord&#8217;s blatant disregard for the literal blood and sweat I poured into these chocolate muffins. He had half a bottle of cream and everything and laughed as my roommate and I cussed his ears off (bless)
also i didn&#8217;t have a cooling rack so I used a steamer, and that is funny to me

Kentucky Route Zero Act III came out! and…it’s pretty great guys.
Junebug’s performance was so amazing. I can’t get the song out of my head.
Heya!! Sorry things have been quiet&#8212; just a lil&#8217; update. It&#8217;s been this way for a while, but I&#8217;ve had a few asks about it so I&#8217;ll say outright that commissions are officially closed right now!! I bit off waaaay more than I could chew in the last round, and since my tablet has finally given up the ghost, finishing things has been rough.
On that note, thanks again to anyone that has commissioned me!! I really am trying to get everything done, I&#8217;ve been through a lot of Big Life Events recently that, aside from a broken tablet, have affected how I&#8217;m getting through my work. If any of you want to know where you are in the queue or have any other questions, please don&#8217;t be afraid to hit me up at my email about it.

Something I did over the weekend. I learned how to create more complicated shaders this last semester so I wanted to try replicating the ACNL one.
The bird and dog models are from here (sorry Nintendo), and I edited them to match New Leaf proportions. Everything else was done by me.

LOOK AT MY TALENTED FRIEND!!!
