Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit: Elves
Tolkien’s texts are notable for their abundance of characters, many of them mentioned perhaps only once, other playing very important parts in the stories. However, it is often very difficult to find any description of how those characters look, and this is what we, artists and illustrators, are usually most concerned with.
So here it is – Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit – a list of all those characters, whose physical appearance is mentioned in the texts, including The Silmarillion and The History of the Middle-earth.
To start with, the Elves. As we know, during the march from Cuiviënén t

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resour

I'm going to have a quiet little freak-out now...... because the fifth anniversary of the first actual Roommates comic is coming up in just over a month.I'm going to have a quiet little freak-out now...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It boggles the mind that the comic's been going this long. It boggles more that some of you have been on this boat since the beginning, and others have been weathering it out for ridiculous spans of time. I mean, five years, for a fan comic? Even as a webcomic, it's no Penny Arcade or anything. There's no money here, just love of fandom. And stories. And fan service.
Thank you everyone who's been reading and commenting and faving and recommending it to your friends, and generally suffering through having people look at you strange when you squeal, scream, or burst out laughing in the middle of the computer lab/living room/library.
How shall we celebrate?

Hard core, manToday at work, an older gentleman came in and asked how much it would cost to make copies of nine pages from a law book. I told him that at fifteen cents per page, his order would cost $1.35. He put one elbow on the counter, waggled his eyebrows, and said, “I bet you could use that for your party money, huh?”Hard core, man2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had to refrain from cackling because a) $1.35 won’t even buy a pack of those noisemakers you use to annoy your parents on New Year’s Eve and b) I am the absolute farthest thing from a party girl ever. My idea of a party involves Disney karaoke, sliding on the tile in my socks, and rolling around on the floor until my gas is gone. I have had, in total, approximately four to five whole glasses of wine in my entire life. I do not twerk, grind, bump, or air hump. I do not shake my thing up in the club with my homies. I do not participate in keggers. The shortest skirt I own comes to the middle of my knees. I would rather wear a bustle than

Five easy ways to tell you're a homophobeUpdatesFive easy ways to tell you're a homophobe4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Five easy ways to tell youre a homophobe!
1. You disown your son when he tells you hes gay. CHECK!
2. You refer to homosexuals as fags, fairies, or with other unsavoury F-words. CHECK!
3. You find yourself ripping up rainbow-coloured flags in your free time. CHECK!
4. You stop voting for the German Liberal Party even after Guido Westerwelles resignation. CHECK!
5. You upload a picture of two Elves from the Tolkien legendarium and say theyre not gay. CHECK!
Now wait a minute.
Its incredible how narrow-minded people can become if you dare to say such politically incorrect things as These characters are not gay.
I can only imagine that some of the ones who accused me of homophobia in comments and PNs after the image I uploaded last week* were gay themselves and have been subjected to all sorts of homophobia for so long that they jump at anyones throat for the slightest hint of what they perceive as intolerance.
