Ellen talking a about foods from the 50s
Looks like Minnesotan food.
bibliomancer7 from your recipe book hahaha
Proof its existence! I swear, some of the food from the 50s is only explicable as revenge/psychological warfare on the part of the women cooking it.
Hahahahaha! It’s so crazy I get a kick out of telling people that this existed! I just told the people at work about this the other day!
caligula had anime eyes
wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot
here’s a statue of Augustus
and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored
i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art
"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"
And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)
I will say that in art history they said that the pigments were mixed with wax so the would not really look like that in color. Because the color would have been translucent and glossy rather than opaque and matte. These example always look like they have been painted with tempra
So on some level I would love to be able to fix something for other dyslexic people, because heck it’s made my life hard enough. But i do t really have any idea how to do that. I mean I know what works for me now but is anyone doing research on dyslexia actually dyslexic? Because it rare for me to talk to someone who really knows what it means. And I didn’t see me first public service announcement about it till I was out of collage so… I’m not really sure what to think
I really wish life was a bit more like a con where you might be able to guess if someone might like at least like one thing you like cause I am soooo bad at socializing. Apparently I can’t even tell if someone might be inviting me to do something. What is wrong with my brain?! People are supposed to be able to do this, why am I so bad at it
