I am a terrible beast with big teeth..
Writer. Sometimes artist.
24. Male. Fancy. Queer. Shy.
Perpetually lost, either in fantasy, thought, time or space.
I queue everything. You have been warned.
Engaged to SpookDoggy.
This is my personal blog where I will often ramble about my personal bullshit and/or my medical bullshit. Life bullshit (aka do-it-yourself), gift ideas and shit I do want too. And my mate, SpookDoggy.
I am highly opinionated and likely do not care what you think if you cannot form a decent rebuttal; however, I am often up for a civil debate or exchange of perspectives.
Other people's art, including gift art, will also show up here, because I like beautiful things. Occasionally there will be music, most often character soundtrack songs. Also photographs of places I will see one day and lighthouses. Random other interests of mine show up with some frequency, such as dragons, reptiles, dinosaurs, beasts, heraldry and some memes.
... don't pay too much attention to the echoes. They won't make too much sense.
Viewer discretion is advised.
Oh, and hey Spooky!

And this is what happens when a masterfully crafted katana collides with a masterfully crafted longsword.
Suck it, katana
suck my fuckin’ diiiick
Aren’t katanas and longswords made for different overall purposes tho
Katanas are slasher weapons made for cutting masterfully through human flesh so obviously it’s not gonna get through a fucking longsword which is really fucking thick and heavy and made for beating the shit out of people as well as hacking at armour
A katana would slice the shit out of you guys so idk what the fuck you’re so smug about
i do believe there was a video of a guy slashing through like a foot of steel with a katana perfectly in half
idk it might not be the katana
it might be the asshole using it
It may also be a shitty mall katana to a good longsword. There are TONS of the cheap shits of both kinds of swords easily found on the market in FUCKING MALLS and CONVENTIONS.
Also a long-sword and a katana are built for entirely different purposes and were never to be used on each other. A katana was bent and could be slid through armor as well as being lighter so the person could be faster. A long-sword was never meant to be fast, it was meant to be dense and smash, not through armor but to cause heavy bruising and internal bleeding in order to further slow and disarm an opponent. Long swords were rarely used to kill directly but to maim your opponent to the point you could use your dagger and stab between their armor or chop their head off entirely.
Both swords have unique uses and actual masters of each style would be an amazing match to see. Someone smashing one art piece into another on the other hand is NOT interesting to see.
What, next they’ll try a broadsword perhaps? Maybe a warhammer or a mace? Katana’s were known for being sharp and cheap metal can be cut through.
Also, if you look closely, it does begin to cut into the long sword, IF the person had been using it correctly he would have SLID the sword as he stepped back , essentially making a deeper slice rather than using the katana like a fucking mallet. Of course it’s going to bend, it’s NOT meant to jackhammer like that.
NO NO NO NO NO.
I am fucking sick to death of this goddamn argument. Would you all like to know why this test was performed? Because enough people were going on and on and on about the mechanical superiority of a katana when compared to western weaponry, and made up all these myths of katanas being able to slice through longswords, etc.
This is just no so. Period.
Not a broadsword, not a longsword, not a fucking mace or warhammer. (Seriously, who the fuck told any of you that warhammers and maces were made out of cheap metal? And even so, what makes you think that pounds of steel would be able to be cut through even with the best steel?)
Yes. I will give you that a katana and a longsword have very different uses. They are crafted for wholly different manners of warfare. It’s sort of like putting a rapier against a longsword.
But I simply do not care if the person stepped back properly and slid the blade down, you are not going to make any kind of even vaguely significant dent to a longsword.
I believe I have seen this program. I might be incorrect, so forgive me if I’m mistaken, but if it’s the one I’ve watched, they use high-quality swords of both so they are on equal footing. Furthermore, they use a master to wield said weapons. This clip is the final attempt to try and make a ding in a longsword to test the myth of a katana being able to cut through it, so they’d already tried the proper way.
So I don’t fucking care that plenty of people are boo-hooing that it’s showing a katana being used to its strengths. Enough goddamn people hyped it up to the blatant detriment of longswords that it was a long-standing belief that katanas could cut through western weapons.
I’ve had to defend western weaponry and armor against weeaboos and Japanophiles for years. So yeah, I’m always happy to see this blatant favoritism put to goddamn rest.
I’m not even going to start on the sharpness of blades okay because if I do I might just explode. Let me just fucking say that it’s obvious none of you have run your hand up a properly sharpened longsword.
This essay is kind of the second part of an essay on taste that can be read here:
also, the message made me think of this -
Rebloggin’ because this is good stuff.
reblogging this again because it really changed how I feel about my own art and how I view the art world
I do not find people charming.
I do not ind the things they do charming or endearing.
Actually, for the most part, I am pretty sure most things that most people do are distinctly not charming.
Today is a day that I remember why I am a misanthrope and keep my contact with human beings (outside of my close circle) relegated almost entirely to pornography.
Because when I start to look at things or read things associated with people doing not-porn, it usually pisses me off.

So let’s make this story simple:
A mother forces her teenage daughter to be fertilised multiple times by donor sperm since the age of 14 so she can produce another child for the aforementioned mother. Naturally the mother prohibitted the teenage subject from breastfeeding the first child that was born from the artificial insemination because she “[didn’t] want any of that attachment thing.”.
Now, between the vinegar douches given to the child and erratic behaviour of the abusive mother finally the authorities were notified after the course of several years of the teen being used as a vending machine for babies at the mother’s whim.
The mother is facing a five-year jail term for child cruelty.
Just child cruelty? No sexual assault? Does she have to register as a sex offender? Or does this woman simply slide under the long arm of the law under the guise of the insane histrionic who made some bad decisions.
I would like any and all readers to imagine if there was a father. A man. Who repededly inseminated his teenage daughter against her will with donor sperm just so he could have another being that couldn’t leave him in his advanced age: “Local man beaten to death” would be the best one could hope for and 5 years would be an outrage.

THIS makes me SO ANGRY I cannot see. I feel this mother should be crucified to the full extent of the law. This is sickening and I am so sick of mothers who somehow manage to evade the law when it comes to abuse.
This is the first part of a little project I will work on while traveling. I will take reader input on where to go next, and we will see where this goes. Updating from my phone so apologies for any awkwardness.
The beach is worn smooth and hard and the ocean is cold. Confused winds bring alternately sea-salt and the smell of smoke from somewhere inland. Before you jut black rocks like fingers. Two towers stand, skeletal, in the distance.
What do you do?
