"It seems to me that on one page I recognized a portion of an old diary of mine which mysteriously disappeared shortly after my marriage, and, also, scraps of letters which, though considerably edited, sound to me vaguely familiar. In fact, Mr. Fitzgerald (I believe that is how he spells his name) seems to believe that plagiarism begins at home."

—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)

Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?

I didn’t know this.

He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.

When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.

And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this.  They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.

Yep. All true. Learned about his trifling ass studying creative writing and English lit. at CSU. Didn’t read ONE of her books on high school, yet we’re taught how amazing and talented he was. Makes me sick. xBx

Dante Gabriel Rosetti did this with Elizabeth Siddal’s drawings, and her contributions to his drawings, as well. Then drove her to suicide by using her as his romantic and sexual scratching post. Then disinterred her body to retrieve the poems he had placed in her open coffin because they were “too good” to let her rest with them. Cool art dudes from history.

I haven’t posted any art-related things for a while, so have this Dumbo Octopus! It’s made of Sculpey and finished with a couple coats of glossy Varathane. I’ll probably put it up for sale in Etsy along with the rest of my Halloween merch.

DUMBO OCTOPUS!

kind of need this as my new friend

Hahaha TRUTH! #funny #true #weak #funnybuttrue #iphone6 #section8 #welfare #foodstamps

…You do realize that a lot of people on assistance don’t actually pay for their own phones or phone plans, right?Like, I’m not even talking about the Lifeline program, here. I mean they’re on someone else’s family plan, or they were given a gift, or they have a phone issued to them through work (as I did, back when I made slightly less than $11/hr as a foster care caseworker).You don’t know someone’s story just by looking at their possessions.

My family donated an old, used iPhone they no longer needed to me and I’m able to use free wi-fi on it in different locations and suburbs as long as I keep it charged. I don’t have to pay for a subscription or call plan as I can always purchase cheap, pre-paid credit whenever I need to or in case of emergencies. My iPhone has helped me stay in touch with my family members, partner, doctors and be able to get around and tell the weather (which is very important here because of all the extreme heatwaves and flash floods). 
It would also help me call the police or emergency services in case I get raped or have a medical emergency (I’m chronically ill). 
People on welfare could benefit greatly from having iPhones and, in fact, need iPhones as well as the options and features they offer (which aren’t available on normal brick cell phones) much more than your average, able-bodied, well adjusted person who is able to have or keep a job. 
Welfare recipients deserve nice things. Welfare recipients aren’t subhuman. Welfare recipients benefit from having access to 21st century technology and don’t simply purchase iPhones to be frivolous or showy, but rather because of the conveniences and important and beneficial features they have. 
If you think welfare recipients don’t deserve to eat or live because they have an iPhone or a car or any other material thing that makes our lives more tolerable, convenient and liveable then you’re the worse piece of shit and your opinion is as useful as toilet paper. Take your shitty opinion, turn it up sideways and, well… you know the rest. 

I mean, granted, I’m an Android person, but back when I was on assistance I had a smartphone. I used it to remind myself of client appointments. When I couldn’t leech wifi, I tethered it so I could get my case notes submitted to my supervisor.My phone helped me keep my job, AND it helped me apply for something full time. It directly helped me in getting off assistance. IDGAF what people think - poor people deserve smartphones, and poor people use smartphones to enhance their quality of life. Fuck people who think that’s a bad thing.
