Hey, peeps! Can I ask a little favor of you?

I want to learn to understand how mask marking works on dogs. What shapes, colors, or sizes it can be, and for that I need actual photos of actual real living dogs with mask marking. Lots of them. If you have a dog with a mask marking, and wouldn’t mind sharing, I’d greatly appreciate if you could reblog this post with a picture of said dog. Or link to a picture of said dog in this post’s answers.

Thanks!

(Note: I don’t have facebook account, so I might not see pictures linked from facebook.)

Obligatory question mark?

#I BELIEVE I CAN NO WAIT ON SECOND THOUGHT THIS WAS A BAD IDEA OH DEAR HERE I GO ALREADY BETTER LEARN TO FLYYYYYYY #PAPERMONKEYISM #THIS IS 4U

Yes. Truth. 

I have slightly uneasy feeling right now. The house I’m living in is changing all the locks (started last week) and my door just got a new shiny lock just a moment ago. (The lock smith woke me up about two hours before my alarm clock.)

New lock is a nice thing, but as I’m not the owner of my apartment, I needed a permission paper from my landlord (a.k.a. my dad) to get the new keys to the new locks. Which I only got yesterday, so for now, untill I get out to fetch the new keys, I’m behind a door that I can’t open from the outside yet.

*cue being paranoid of accidentally forgetting to take the key-paper with me when going out and locking myself out*

Okay this turned out too pretty not to put on the main blog. Two of my virtual pet dragons at Flight Rising, Pumpuli (the three-legged pile of pink) and Merrygold (the tiny thing who likes Pumpuli’s scarf). This was supposed to be just a quick doodle before going to bed, and ended up taking several hours and I should have been in bed ages ago. Whoops.

Part two HERE.

Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! Look what I found by accident while youtube surfing!

I used to have this episode on tape when I was a little kid! I used to watch it all the time. NOSTALGIAAAAAAAA! Granted it doesn’t have the full nostalgia value for not being dubbed the way I remember it, but I can almost hear the Finnish narration at some parts, I still remember it so well.

Man, that opening gave me chills!

Psst! Flight Rising peeps. As the site is open for registration for a little while again today and there’s so many new people, I just thought I’d mention that I have a side blog for dragoning, Rauniokirjastonklaani (translates into the “clan of Library Ruins”) because I’m a dork who likes pixel dragons. Sometimes includes doodles. 

Just in case you wanted to know.

There’s a thesis seminar at school tomorrow, and my thesis is a mess.

*arm flailing*

On plus side I have over 30 pages worth of said thesis. But it’s still a mess.

AAaaaauuuuuuuuuuuugh!

Stupid, stupid, stupidstupid thesis. Never let me go to a school again, never again another thesis.

i’m still not over the linguistic miracle that is the Finnish expression “noni” and its variations

  • NOni (emphasis on the first syllable): “well now you’ve done it, good job” meaning you’ve majorly fucked up
  • noNI (emphasis on the last syllable): “I TOLD YOU DIDN’T I” meaning I totally was right and this argument is over
  • noni (literally no emphasis): “Anyway” or “I need to rearrange my thoughts, give me a sec”
  • NOniin (emphasis on the first syllable): “i admit my defeat you were right” meaning it definitely answers the noni above
  • noNIIN (emphasis on the last syllable): “let’s get started” or “okay anyway let’s continue”
  • NONni (emphasis on the first syllable): “aw, that sucks”
  • nonNI (emphasis on the last syllable): “without further ado, let’s get started”, usually after a long wait before a lengthy speech/presentation
  • nonni (again no emphasis): “you’re such a disappointment”
  • nonnnnnni (the length of the -nn- defines the meaning): “that’s too bad” or “i told you so” or “why would you drop the family heirloom vase it was literally worth 500k euros”
  • No. Nii. (the pause between no and nii defines the meaning): “yea, just like I was saying” or “and that’s about all I know about this issue” or “okay you’re right” or “hold on i need a moment to figure what to say next”
  • noniii (the length of the -ii defines the meaning): “ah, it’s finally working” or “I’m not so sure about that one”, or “well I guess you’re right but consider the following:” or “ah, buckle your seat belts, the ride’s about to begin”
  • no NIIN (sometimes no is almost swallowed and it sounds like “nNNII”): “finally finished”, usually after a lengthy speech/presentation
  • no nii-IH (if you forget the singsong tone this won’t work): “that’s what i’ve literally been trying to say for the past three hours” or “i know right ugh”
  • no niiii-i (the last -i is really short and sort of fades into the void of eternity, probably the most passive-aggressive word in the entire Finnish language): “i fucking agree” or “yeah tell me about it” after a very negative discussion, in which you usually complain about someone or something
  • NONIH (only mothers know how to say this one): “do this or so god help me” or “it’s six am on a Saturday morning and you’re about to clean up the entire house and the neighbour’s house too”
  • NOHNI (everyone driving a car naturally aces this one): “fucking. drive. you. slow. ass. slug” or “it’s fucking green it’s been green for 84 years” or “please don’t fucking hit me please” or “how the hell did that one even get a licence”

My way of making notes is clearly exceptionally professional and well organized.
In other words I finally collected the answers I got from that dinosaurs in media -questionnaire I made last month. Huuuuuge thank yous for all who answered, this was a great help with my thesis (which should have been finished already but writing academic text is BOOOOOOOORIIIIIIIING). I really appreciate all the help I got.

Speaking of old dinosaurs in moving pictures, did you know this year marked the 100th year of animated dinosaurs? Gertie the dinosaur, the first animated dinosaur, was made in 1914 (apparently the same year as the silent movie I’m watching. Clearly the year 1914 understood the potential in dinosaurs).

I found a silent movie on youtube from year 1914 that’s allegedly the first movie with dinosaurs in it (at least according to Wikipedia). I’m looking at it and the only thing I’m thinking is where on earth did they get that hippo skull. 
Well, it does look appropriately monstrous (hippos, man), but still. 
(Also poor crocodile thing. That, uh, make up looks a bit uncomfortable.)

Call for help! Looking for Finnish aces!

So, I have finally decided to do something about a matter that has been (really) bothering me for sometime. That is asexual recognition in Finland. Our biggest and most influential organization for sexual and gender minorities Seta (http://seta.fi/) defines asexuality as follows:

Interrupting my regularly scheduled irregular being dumb around this blog just in case any of my followers might be interested in this subject.

The usual nonsense will now resume.

Please tell me that Surama would be the one to invent metal in the Wurr-world. I can just picture her in Kiss makeup...

Bunch of wolves suddenly appeared in my sketchbook.
Also I might have accidentally created a pack consisting entirely of metalheads. With a metalhead grandma. In a world where metal music doesn’t even exist. (Although I’m pretty sure that if metal music ever gets invented in said world, I have a strong hunch of who’d be responsible of it.)
I want to draw more of them. Doodle everything!
