Post phrases you heard that you found odd, don't get or made you think "what the heck"

I'll start. English is my secondary languages, so when I was visiting my friend her family cooked a big homecook meal for me. I remember complimenting the mom on her stuffed peppers and my friend added "Oh yeah, she put her foot in it! Mmmmm"

I've always found it weird how people call their parners "baby" or "babe". Maybe it's because English is my second language as well but it just seems odd to me.
It's so common that I'm used to it now, but I'd never call my SO baby since it sounds so unnatural to me.

No. 228096

Honestly, I've always found it cringey. And I'm someone who has English as their first and only language. When I hear someone say it it just sounds so dopey and tryhard.

No. 228114

Same here, I used to only say "babe" if I was taking the piss but now I'm around babies and young kids, I've been accidentally calling them babe without thinking! It's such a gross betrayal, I don't know why it's happening. I'm also trying to remember to call little girls strong stuff like champion instead of princess, but it's just hard to remember all the time.

I absolutely hate people using "how's it going" as a greeting, especially when they say it as they walk past or away from you so you have to decide whether to just ignore it or to yell "fine than you and you?!" into the distance between you.
It should be a punishable crime.

A phrase that always baffles me is "the devil's beating his wife", which is said when it rains while the sun is shining. It's so weird and backwards to the point of absurdity.

weirdly I'm totally comfortable hearing other people call their SO's "baby" and "babe" but I absolutely cannot do it myself

Personally I couldn’t give a f*ck about the existence of drag, but this is still very true. It is essentially gay men parodying that old attitude that homosexual guys are somehow partially/closer to being female. The only thing that does genuinely annoy me is them describing very feminine queens as “fishy” - that’s been used as a way to insult and humiliate women for a long time, and it’s not okay for them to take that. It would be like me dressing up as a stereotypical gay guy and then calling myself a faggot or something.

No. 226831

I think there is good and bad about this art ( like a lot of thing obviously ) I think that there is more and more queen that are less a caricature of woman like raja or sasha velours ( the kind of model/ high fashion queen ) and still be funny. And big wig bold makeup, funny dance and ott dress will always make me smile !

I don't know a lot of shit about rupaul because I'm not american and drag from usa aren't really well know were I live but in rpdr he look really respectful but still a little bitchy if I can say so.

But on another side there is most drag's fan who are yelling' YASS QUEEN!! GURLLL!!!" and talking like tweaking brainless kids. They are generally attacking every body that say something remotely bad about their idole.
we can kind of see that with jeffree star and even women and kids acting like that now !

( video related is a infamous french youtuber that is straight but pulling the queeny card for his underage viewers )

sorry for the wall of text

No. 228013

As the above anon said, you do get queens such as Sasha Velour and Raja who are more about fashion/art, rather than trying to parody women. I have no issue with those sorts of drag queens.

An issue I do take is how drag queens and the gay community in general treat bio/faux queens. They say they can't do it or are stepping on their turf, you're literally taking inspiration directly from women and femininity but want to exclude them? Drag nowadays isn't just about female impersonation clearly, they praise drag queens for doing looks with beards etc but a woman exaggerating her femininity is apparently not allowed.

No. 228102

I don't particularly care for them unless they're misogynistic/hypersexual. I really love Bianca del Rio though, he's more of a comedian in makeup and heels than anything.

No. 228388

Queens like Bianca and Bob the Drag Queen make me happy. I love their comedy and they don't take themselves seriously.

Queens who are obsessed with being feminine and a woman annoy me a lot. Like Farrah Moan.

How do you feel about Omocat's designs and artwork? I like a lot of the stuff available in their store and have the glow in the dark sweater personally, other people think it's too weeb.
Reminder that they started a Kickstarter for a game they were making with free software. It raised $203,000 from 5,910 backers. Said game was meant to be released in May, but there's been no word on it. Not even an update. No backer rewards, either.

what baffles me is that people, to this day, still defend her and are being supportive.
the kickstarter page went live in 2014. there are around 7-8 people working on the game. they raised over 200k for this game. but yeah "don't listen to the haters who demand updates for a game they spend money on almost four years ago uwu stay healthy!"

Can confirm the game exists, played the demo at her Halloween premiere. It's… fine? Art has got a somewhat unique style; if you find her pastel heavy art to be unique. It's like a hard 50/50 blend of Yume Nikki and Earthbound. The opening room where you just have a laptop was so Yume Nikki inspired I groaned a little. Nothing too revolutionary. I think there was like 1 dead meme and 3 Pokemon references in the 15 minute demo we got to play. The walking controls need tightening. (Super minor gripe but loose/floaty controls are like the biggest thing indie devs fuck up IMO). Very indie, style-over-substance. Probably won't be awful, probably won't break any new ground.

Just curious if anyone of you have a particular favourite brand? Or do you think a brand like Killstar or Kreepsville 666 is overrated? I buy alt clothes online but sometimes the designs I see online are just plain awful and I wonder who would buy them. I see a LOT of clearance sales on Killstar website and it makes me wonder if Killstar is overrated?

Here are one Killstar design, I can't imagine who would wear them. (pic attached). Maybe if Killstar stops putting silly messages on their designs, the clothes would sell better.

Kreepsville 666 has some cool designs but some of their other designs look so childish and juvenile, like something you would see at Hot Topic for tweens. I really don't like their Elvira designs.

Anyway, share your likes or dislikes of Alt Fashion brands.

Why is attitude holland so shady with their sales?

They just announced a huge sale on shoes (up to 60%) and other items and when you go check it out the sale is valid only on certain sizes… usually sizes that most people don't wear, for example most pairs of shoes was on sale in Europe sizes 40,36, the most uncommon ones.

This has happened before and they rarely have sales that are actual sales. I remember once they announced they had free shipping and it was only valid for certain countries (not too many) and before someone jumps on me, no in both cases they had no disclaimer in smaller letters, it was just plain out "FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING UNTIL XX/XX " and " 60% OFF SHOES"

Can we have a thread for all aspiring artists of lolcow to share tips, give each other advice and talk about fave art supplies!

I've always loved drawing but I felt really unhappy with the results. I have zero ability to draw things how they look like and not how my brain tells me I should draw them. I got so frustrated and depressed I stopped. I wish I could have fun with drawing again.

How can I get better?

As >>227400 said, there can be a lot of factors into it.
First of all, consider what you want to achieve. Break it down into smaller goals and try to set realistic deadlines to get your butt to work.
I myself have recently become a fan of the Pomodoro technique, despite having disliked and failed at it in the past. If you're willing to try, I'd recommend starting slow, having a 20-30min session and slowly adding to it. I had that habit of trying to juggle doing a bunch of things at the same time, now I'm trying to give each task a decent amount of focus. It may seem daunting and annoying at first, but after you get the hang of it, productivity becomes addictive.

You pretty much described why most people are drawn to sports. Feeling a sense of identity in a team, and feeling like they are apart of a team. The team mentality lets you think as a component of a group which is less taxing by volumes than thinking independantly all the time.

When you go out in public for example, you may not realize it but every time you step outside you are participating in the massive groupthink that allows us to work together and live around eachother. You view things through the lens of the group rather than explicity from your own perspective.

I find it funny when intellectuals express their dislike of sports as if it means they are somehow aware of something everyone else isn’t. On the contrary, I think it displays a fundamental lack of understanding about how humans operate. Trying to describe the thrill of sport and team dynamics in esoterics is like to describe why sex feels good with mathematics.

I think this is why I can tolerate college football over the NFL. If you graduated from a certain school, it's easier to enjoy watching a game or feel a sense of pride if that makes sense.

I looked through the catalog and didn't find one (forgive me if there is and I missed it) so I thought I'd make one. Post recipes, cooking tips, talk about cooking, etc.

I'll start. I'm pretty young (recently turned 18) and have only been cooking for a couple years. I learned because no one else in my family knew how to cook and it turned into one of my favorite pastimes. I particularly love baking deserts and cooking Asian recipes such as Thai chicken.

Pic is raspberry cheesecake that I saw on google.

I find the idea of Tor so exciting in a nostalgic way but I'm too much of a pussy to really take a dive
I had the internet back in the late 90s and would just spend hours clicking through bbs boards and whatever now-boring stuff I could find. I enjoyed the intrigue of stumbling onto something 'secret' and I had no fear, the clearnet was already niche enough that it didn't take long to find bizarre things. Maybe it's because I was young and everyone was gullible back then about 1337 haxxors but everything seemed cool and exciting. Heck, search engines could send you to the most random places, rather than just wherever Google now decides it profits most to send you to
But now, I actually really don't want to see horrible gore or CP and I don't want to risk being put onto a list for stumbling upon it, so I don't feel I can go exploring anymore.

I'm too old to understand the true risks and mechanics of using Tor, so I need you kids to bring me back stories of the deep web so that I can live my 1337 dreams through you all. Lie to me if you have to.

No. 227880

I don't have much time to relax so I like to do an hour or two of playing in the late evening to unwind a bit but my brother has to watch me play even though I told him that I preferred to play alone multiple times. I hate him watching me because he can't hold in the spoilers, he's NEET so he's always ahead of me and gets all the trophies but whatever. What I hate the most is that he needs to constantly comment something, spoil things ahead and compare our progress. I already built him a PC for playing the latest games on ultra specs, why can't he grant me some fucking peace? After all, he has the ALL day. Also, I perform much worse because of his "I've beaten this boss on my second try, surely you can do better." The pressure and his why-dont-you-do-it-my-way just ruin everything.
Maybe this seems like such a silly thing to bitch about, but I don't have a lot of me time so I can't get rid of this negative energy. And then when I tell him how I feel he just says I'm in a bitchy mood. I really love my bro but sometimes I wish I could give him a good slapping like when we were little kids. And now he's acting like he's hurt and being passive-aggressive.

I finally shut down bf's whiny ass last night and it felt great.
He has a chip on his shoulder because I expect him to pay rent. He has literally NO other responsibilities besides paying a student loan for a degree he never got. Which is not my fault.
Meanwhile, I work a stressful job. I pay groceries, utilities, my student loan (for my degrees that I did earn), extra funsies add ons that he enjoys like Netflix/Hulu/Crunchyroll. I'm even the one funding almost the entirety of our trip to Japan over the summer. On top of that I have to drive him everyplace since he doesn't even have a permit, cook, and clean. Nobody ever gives me asspats for all this extra cough unpaid cough work I do. So I don't give a fuck that he thinks his full time food service job is sooo tough. I used to be empathetic, but he milks it as if working one full time job is cruel and unusual meanwhile I have friends who work two jobs or more. Some of my female friends even have men who pay their entire ride while they get to focus all their time on hobbies and work jobs only if they want to. I'm incredibly jealous and I don't feel appreciated.

What grinds my gears the most is when he whines about "working a double." He doesn't. He works a lunch and dinner service at his job which totals 8-10 hours. A normal shift. A shift I work.
A "double" is 16 hours. He just thinks that because he works two
four hour shifts that it means it's a double, and he says that to everybody to make it sound like he works harder than he does.
I finally called his ass out about that and since he's stopped saying that horseshit around me but I'm sure he tells all his friends that he's such a hard worker. Fuck I'm pissed.

Why do you allow him to be such a mooch? It sounds like he's a loser with no ambition. You could do better girl

No. 227935

I'm having almost this same problem and I have been with him for over 10 years. I'm finally starting to wise up and am thinking about ending it. It used to be more worth it, me paying his way and also supporting his fee fees, because at the time it felt like he was there for me, but it is pretty clear now that he is just a manchild who can't get over the fact that the world is not going to cater to him and without me, no one would support his ass.

I blame his fucking terrible mother for coddling him, as both he and his brother are the exact fucking same.

Do you want to chat directly? I'm basically furious right now (on my day off) because he pulled some shit today and I'm basically at the point of finally being burnt out. He sounds like he is from a branch from the same tree as yours, so if you want to talk directly I'd be happy to listen. Or at least check back here.

I sadly don't know what to say since it's complicated, but freeing yourself might make you feel better. I'm listing pros and cons right now myself about what to do.
