Oichi.Just some doodle I did to distract myself from work and to relax a bit.I really want to draw a proper portrait of Oichi sometime, but I feel like I can never do her justice. This character is so beautiful, and I just … hnnnngh.(Done with a newer version of MyPaint - why did they have to butcher my favorite brushes, whyyyyy?)

My first run of Badou Nails from Dogs Bullets and Carnage. I was looking through pictures of him with Nikita (who just gave me his wig for christmas) and I realized that with a few quick props I could do a shoot…and naturally that’s all she needed to hear. Result of the impromptu shoot

After hours of redrawing and reconstructing things around…I’m somewhat content or rather I’m just done with this. But, here’s Kanda’s AU outfit. It became more elaborate then I had in mind. I’m not going to make his attire like this because I get too frustrated with small details, esp on the ornaments. In this AU he is known as the “Prince of the Swords.”

why is it that all the most popular posts on tumblr

are written like this

with no capitals

and no punctuation

i just really want there to be a popular and grammatically correct post on tumblr

I think the majority of Tumblr’s dialect (is there a word for a written dialect? Hardly anyone speaks Tumblr.) comes from influence within the tag system.

My theory is that the lack of capitalization is stylized, ironic laziness (same reason as the increasingly popular use of abbreviations such as idek and ikr, and particles like desu), whereas the punctuation stems from the tag system, where commas split up tags. So, “this is like, so totally cool” would be tagged “this is like” “so totally cool.”

With commas struck from the tumblr blogger’s arsenal, they rely on run-on sentences and other means to show emphasis. One such means, spacing, is another quirk influenced by the tags. If you repeat a tag, it will only show once, which is why you get “really r e a l l y weird things like this.”

Also common on Tumblr are people who show their enthusiasm through their text by pretending their haNDS ARE FRKEAKIGN OUT AN D THEY CANT TPYE OMFGGGG. This adaptation is actually pretty cool, I think, as it serves to communicate tone across a very toneless medium.

Did you hear that noise? That was the sound of my desk breaking. My linguistics boner just snapped it in half.

 

I was literally talking to someone about internet dialects just the other day, and how someone “from” 4chan will speak in a different dialect to someone “from” Tumblr, even if physically they live right next door to each other. The internet’s become like some kind of shadow world with its own languages and regional dialects, depending on what website someone might have “originated” from. 

Fucking fascinating

If you get lucky enough to meet me IRL you will enjoy me barely talking and saying great things such as “yeah” and “haha”
