Edit 2: I am surprised to see that there are even people reblogging this who, themselves or someone they know, have had similar issues with Hot Topic.
Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to. I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.
The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.
If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!
Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.
We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.
Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.
no but what pisses me off is when parents dont let boys and girls hang out as friends like especially when it comes to sleepovers
like no i dont want his dick in me i want to sit on my floor and throw board game pieces at him when i lose
finally someone said it
So there’s this girl who sits next to me in Biology, and she is such a religious nut
She literally lectured me today because apparently I took the lord’s name in vain when I said “Mother of god”and I was doing my nails right now and got the idea of making them fandom related, and decided on making them about Supernatural. I’m pretty sure shes going to scream bloody murder and lecture me when she sees them tomorrow in class. oh well
Oh please do tell. This is gonna be great.
I STILL CANT STOP LAUGHING SINCE THIS MORNINGWe were sitting in class today doing the assignment and I saw her out of the corner of my eye. She saw my nails and looked kinda freaked out, so she made a small cross with her fingers in her lap and then, I kid you not, whispered “Cristo.” so then just to freak her out, I flinched and turned to glare at her, and she looked so petrified she almost jumped out of her chair
YOU ARE MY HERO
Reblogging just for the caption.
UPDATE: So today, just for the sake of curiosity I wanted to see if she still legitimately believed I was a demon after having the weekend to mull it over. I was in homeroom, and she, 5 of my other friends, and I were all at our usual table, and she started ranting about something. (I should probably mention she hasn’t made eye contact with me since the incident on Friday) I looked up from what I was doing to ask what she was ranting about, and she said “I AM JUST SO FURIOUS. THEY’RE THINKING OF REMOVING “Under God” FROM THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE!” Seeing as we’re american, this is pretty much a huge deal? “WHY? GOD IS EVERYWHERE. GOD IS IN OUT EVERY BREATH. THEY’RE ALSO THINKING ABOUT REMOVING THE “In God we trust” FROM OUR CURRENCY. I AM JUST FURIOUS.” And so, every time she said the word “God” Id glare at her and lean a bit forward She kept leaning backwards as to stay away from me, and then finally, after she finished ranting, all of my friends went into their own little conversations, and it was just the two of us left, so I let out a low growl at her and she covered her mouth with her hand and ran to the teacher’s desk to get away from me. I’m pretty positive she’s convinced I’m possessed by a demon. I admit, this one may have been a bit mean, but I was curious, sorry I’m not sorry.
tbh this is the best thing on my dash
