Equipment bags can be found in various small businesses throughout the East Harlem community, as well as at Harlem RBI.

A note on common condom names: Though condoms are usually called “male” and “female” condoms, it’s important to remember that people with penises do not always identify themselves as male, and people with vaginas do not always identify as female. “Female” condoms can also be worn by anyone, since they can be worn in vaginas and rectums.

If you’re looking for more neutral language, “internal” and “external” are good substitutions for “female” and “male.”

What do you mean when you said that Disney had to use a cheaper animation technique after Sleeping Beauty?

voodoo-tiki:

kristoffbjorgman:

okay so for all of their animated movies from Snow White right up until Sleeping Beauty, the way they actually animated stuff was by drawing it all out on paper beforehand, then placing a thin sheet of transparent plastic (a cel) over it and tracing the outline with coloured ink. When it was dry, they would flip the cel over and paint in the rest of the colours with paint on the back to make one frame of animation.

obviously it was really time-consuming and expensive to basically draw out the entire movie twice (once with the animators on paper and again with the inkers on cells) so when photocopiers/xerox machines started becoming a thing in the 50’s they were able to skip the inking stage altogether and photocopy the pencil-on-paper sheets of animation directly to the cels before painting them.

It was cheaper but it had a lot of drawbacks as well - they could only photocopy in black and white for a long time and because there was little to no touchup on the pencil animation, in a lot of their earlier xerox movies you can see stuff like reference lines appear randomly on characters for a few frames before disappearing again - compare the fluid and colourful style of Sleeping Beauty to the black, scratchy one of 101 Dalmatians

anyway, they used the xerox process right up until Rescuers Down Under which was the first animated movie to be inked and coloured entirely digitally - they scanned the animation from paper directly into a software bundle called CAPS (computer aided production system) that they developed with Pixar, which allowed them to ink and paint each cel of animation, as well as ‘film’ the entire movie digitally

Compare The Little Mermaid to Beauty and the Beast to see how much better pretty much everything looks

CAPS was used right up until Home on the Range until Disney decided it was going to go purely CG (the very last thing they made with it was actually their The Little Matchgirl short in 2006), and by the time Princess and the Frog and Winnie the Pooh went into production CAPS was considered outdated so those 2 were done with a similar but more recent system called Toon Boom Harmony (each frame of animation was still all hand-drawn onto paper before being uploaded digitally however)

I actually like the xerox look. It has a sort of rawness and vibrant appeal - it looks more like a moving drawing. The animation itself is still beautiful no matter what the finishing technique used.

political cartoons drive me insane, like ... they're always SO LAZY??? the subtlest way to make a comparison is to draw one thing and just write "american companies" or "media" on top of it....? just write a bad joke then, why even bother to illustrate it. good blog, though.

You're seriously gonna tell me to eat shit for my opinion? Perfect logic lol. I respect your opinion in this because I know some people can only do minimum wage jobs but when I voiced my opinion I was talkin about the ones who can better themselves but won't. If you can't go to school I understand Wantin more wages but if you can go to school then go and don't be a fuckin bum. Just wanted to explain my reasonin behind my opinion. Good day to you

jesus guy you’re like a one-man human centipede

plainjanefaye said: the whole point of minimum wage was originally that you can live off of it. you cannot live off our current minimum wage. we did not adjust for inflation correctly.

correct, and allow me to elucidate why anyone who trash talks min wage workers is invited to eat shit.
1) min wage has been below the poverty level since the fucking reagan era (and arguably the poverty level itself is depressingly out-of-date low), which often means taking multiple min wage jobs ergo little time for school let alone raising kids
image
2) only a quarter of min wage workers are the stereotypical teenager, and fully half are above age 24.

I work minimum wage and I'd just like people to know that minimum wage is a shit job that only the lowest common denominator or teenagers work. If you're still stuck in it, maybe you should look into getting appliable skills. if you can't, GET READY TO PUSH BOXES AROUND AND FLIP BURGERS THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

pulled-himself-up-by-his-own-bootstraps georg was an outlier and should not have been counted; everyone else needs a living wage regardless of skill level

sadly, a person making minimum wage in america would be baffled by seeing a bill larger than a $5 or $1. a good cartoon.

written by someone that’s never been to or worked in retail

"you deserve poverty for giving me poor customer service"

I hope the person who made that cartoon dies a painful death.
and furthermore I’ll work circles around you, dickhead.
oh ps. what kind of name is Rob Smith Jr?????

"*this is a true story"
somehow i highly doubt it.

As someone who has done a lot in retail; this is literally impossible. The damn cash register tells you what change to give. The artist definitely pulled this one out of their ass

Ass, brain, whats the difference?

The best part that undermines the cartoonist’s intent is that, if she’s demanding $11/hour and the meal is $10.60, it means right now she can’t even afford to eat where she works with an hour’s pay.

And even if this was a true story (which is like really clearly isn’t)
IT’S FULLY MORE LIKELY that there was some sort of counterfeit 20$ bill problem in the area
Because I see that ALL THE TIME, they have to call a manager because they know they aren’t supposed to just take the 20s in case their fake but maybe they don’t have the easy way to check the bill on them or something.
Like if your assumption is that someone sitting in front of a big computer/calculator machine all day doesn’t know how to give you change you’re just shitty tbh

you can tell robsmithjr.com what you think of his shit comic

*goes to robsmithjr.com**sees blurb to see Rob Smith Jr.’s cartoons on Glenn Beck**understands everything*

i made min. wage when i had to count all the registers AND THE SAFE in a supermarket and do wire transfers for thousands of dollars that i counted by hand. but yeah, totally baffled by anything larger than a $5 bill…
i’ve had customers at my current retail job talk to me like i’m an idiot because they gave ME incorrect change and then refuse to listen when i explain their mistake
i deal with grown adults on a regular basis who need to be walked through using their debit card on a pin pad, but clearly make more money than i do. and i can assure you most people can’t do basic math in their heads judging from my 10+ years of experience in retail. that’s why calculators exist, jfc
but more importantly, the comic creator is literally saying that 1) if a person works in min. wage jobs it’s because they’re “stupid” 2) if a person can’t do math in their head they’re useless and deserve to live in poverty 
and that’s completely vile and they should be ashamed of themselves

^ this

People who make arguments like “minimum wage workers can’t do math in their head and are stupid” don’t know how a POS machine works.
You literally press however much was given and it does the math for you.
This minimizes any extra work you have to do to figure out how much change to give them.
The fucking bills are organized in the register along with change so you literally only need basic arithmetic to figure out how much change to give someone. When a store says they don’t take something higher than a $20 it’s usually because they don’t have enough to dole out change without emptying the register and registers are required to have a specified amount of money in them in order for transactions togo smoothly.
I worked in retail, it’s so fucking simple but retail and fast food workers deserved to be paid a LIVING WAGE for being on their feet for 8+ hours a day dealing with your self-aggrandizing ass. I worked at GameStop and the fucking assholes I did not get paid enough to be dealing with those assholes.
And I wish we’d stop calling it minimum wage and start calling it LIVING wage, because whatever job you have should pay you enough to be able to afford to live off of.
