Love, Tumblr, and Weird: Purple Primary Silver Secondary Black Tertiary Blue primary black primary green secondary silver tertiary Light Blue Primary Orange Secondary Teal Tertiary Red secondary gold tertiary? whats this second, darker blue where the secondary color should go? why are the sec- ondary accents where the tertiary colors should be? Fine sometimes, but almost com- pleterly erases the gold This model puts its secondary colors in places where it's tertiary should go, creating a sense of unbalanced blue/red, and far less gold or yellow than it should have. This model accomplishes what the paris model set out to do- they put black on hips (where other model's secondary (and sometimes tertiary) color goes) This gives Houston a larger primary-to-sec- ondary color ratio. Worth noting that most skins for London are actu Same breakdown as London ally bright blue primary, teal secondary, and orange accents. It could be argued that orange is stll teri tary in this model, but thats almost more damning for paris. Where is their red arm? Why, again, is his shitty hoody red? because gold doesnt work? shouldnt it have been blue instead? and then have the hip pad underneath and arm both be red? be argued tha ost more damn his ody red? becauS nstead? aered? a much more pronounced gold color from a team without any gold even in their logo OMEGALUL Special callout for the dragon skin: They decided to use their primary red color in the legs where every other team puts their tertiary color... very interesting choice *where did the two different blues go from the doomfist model? here theres only one- why is gold so bronze compared to doomfist? Why do they try to make the skin red/blue split even here but more blue on doomfist? only one Look at that sweet gold shine, paris... whatchu doin sweetie P A RIS ETERNAL overwatchleaguepride: Lets talk about Paris……beyond the uninspired color choice. Let’s ignore that paris and DC (and, ugh, fineeee nyxl) have the same-ish colors. There’s some big things wrong here, at least in my opinion:1. On doomfist’s skin, Paris attempts a unique choice that only nyxl, houston, and seoul have done. They try to push the primary color. Look at the Houston doomfist skin vs the London and Glads one. While all technically have three colors, Houston looks overwhelmingly more like it’s primary black color, and then green, and then if you really look, you can see the silver tertiary color. Paris attempts this- but does one weird thing: they introduce a fourth color. Where the inside of his arm should be red, they put a second, darker blue. :/ hmmm2. In contrast to that, on Widow, they seem to give up on the idea of a more dominant blue color and don’t follow the nyxl/houston/seoul model of more primary color and less secondary. Here, they do what all the other teams do and put primary on body, secondary on legs, and accent on armor bits and leggy criss-cross things. Exceeeeept…. they dont have their gold accents non the hips! Why, if they’re not going to do what nyxl/houston/seoul do and push the primary? All it servers to do is make the red/blue size difference even more even! Also- their gold on her is… bronze looking. Much much darker than the gold on doomfist or on the other team. Weird. 3. The logo. Hoo boy that logo. Why do they have that terrible contrast? Why is the largest, brightest piece of it the yellow if they’re going a) use gold and b) hide the gold on their skins anyway? Why push the blue primary on their logo and on some skins but not on other skins? …anyway- I’m gonna assume this is super boring to most people, but if anyone likes design, I’d love to hear what you think!

America, Apparently, and Beautiful: dank-space-memes: inkandcayenne: wilfulwayfarer: rasec-wizzlbang: dalaisa-katili: local-emo-mom: anarcho-individualist: explanatorypower: i dont understand this at all and america scares the fuck out of me This is the america they don’t want you to see i love america This is what you call Waffle House at 2 am when the bars close and everyone is drunk and hungry *group of people having fun*this site: wtf this is so scary People having safe fun at a waffle house is scary for most Tumblr bloggers, reports say. Some context for those not familiar with Waffle House Culture:  Waffle House is one of the few chains in America that’s open 24/7/365, and where you can get both breakfast and lunch/dinner options at any time (I have had so many Breakfast Cheeseburgers at Waffle Houses). The food is really good, and people eat there at all times of the day or night, but it’s particularly popular as a late-night post-drinking spot because it’s all that’s open and it’s the kind of food that tastes especially good when you’re hammered. Part of Waffle House Protocol is that all the servers and cooks greet every single customer as they come through the door. It sounds lame, but I’ve never been to a Waffle House where that greeting didn’t feel completely heartfelt. My mom is a health nut who could barely find anything on the menu she was willing to eat and yet she describes the Christmas Day lunch we had there one year as one of the nicest meals she’s ever had because everyone was so warm and welcoming. That sense of camaraderie gets turned up to 11, of course, at 2 a.m. when everyone’s shitfaced. The jukeboxes have Waffle-House-themed songs on them (once you have heard “Raisins in my Toast” you will be earwormed forever) and there is an arcane system of hash brown ordering: scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, diced, peppered, and/or capped. The hot sauce bottles say “Casa de Waffle.”  Once, in Oxford (UK), my husband and I walked past a kebab van very late one night and he said “why do I smell Waffle House” The location of most Waffle Houses means there’s some… classism that tends to get tied up with Anti-Waffle House Discourse, which is probably lending itself, in part, to this being such a fraught topic. (I’m looking at a map and apparently I was born and raised right in the middle of the Peak Waffle House Density Zone) It is, in the words of chef Anthony Bourdain, “indeed marvelous— an irony-free zone where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts; where everybody regardless of race, creed, color or degree of inebriation is welcomed.” This was adorable lmao Waffle Houses are also kind of popular places to get shot at but other than that it’s pretty dank
