This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
'A Californian congressmen has just introduced a law to make it illegal to keep orcas in captivity. This could change everything — but SeaWorld is already mounting a vicious campaign to defeat this congressman's brave move. We need to tell the State of California that the public won't accept SeaWorld's imprisonment of orcas any longer.'

HI MUM. <3
- "Poached." This is an egg cracked open and gently boiled out of the shell until the whites have congealed but the yolk is still runny. Poached eggs are great with potatoes, toast, or corned beef hash due to the great amount of runny yolk left for spreading or dipping. Most restaurants advertising eggs “any style” will poach eggs but some prefer not to outside of breakfast hours, since it involves boiling at least a small saucepan of water.
- "Scotch Egg." A Hard-Boiled egg that has been wrapped in Cumberland sausage and rolled in bread crumbs. Sometimes a soft-boiled egg is used.
- "Hard boiled." Everyone knows what a hard boiled egg is: an egg boiled in its shell for 13-15 minutes until the whites are firm and the yolk is solid.
- "Soft boiled." An egg boiled inside its shell, just like a Hard boiled egg, until the whites have set and the yolk has very slightly thickened. This is the “three minute egg” that gave us the three minute “egg timer”. PROTIP: It will continue to cook from residual heat within the egg, after you take it out of the water - run the egg (still in the shell) under some cold water immediately to stop the cooking process.
- "Scrambled." This is the other one everyone knows: the egg white and yolk are mixed together, sometimes thinned out with milk, cream, or water, and fried.
- "Fried" or "Over hard and break ‘em." Just ordering a “fried” egg gets an egg fully fried on both sides, slightly browned, with a broken yolk. They are good on sandwiches but leave no yolk to spread on potatoes or toast. All following eggs are considered to be variations of ‘Fried’
- "Over easy." What is usually thought of as a fried egg: pan fried on one side until cooked about halfway through, then flipped over and fried on the other side until the white has set. The edges can be a bit crispy but the yolk is still runny, albeit not so much as a properly done poached egg.
- "Over medium." Like an over easy egg, but cooked a bit more on the second side. The yolk will be somewhat thick or sticky, but not hard.
- "Over well" or "Over hard." An egg fried on one side as for “over easy”, then cooked on the other side until the yolk has completely set. Some cooks will break the yolk.
- "Sunny side up." The egg is fried on one side and not flipped. Sometimes a bit of frying fat is spooned over the top to set the white, or some water is tossed into the pan and a lid placed over the egg. Both of these methods are called "Basted", but this isn’t universally understood if requested and often done by default anyway. Some cooks will leave the white on the top is left unset and sticky.
hey everyone I’m getting into D3 (diablo 3) again with this recent AMAZING patch so uh…I’m piebutts over there lemme know who you is so you ain’t no stranger
Ghis’ March bill commission marathon
Guess who needs money again! ^^;;;
Just like every month of March, I received the biggest electricity bill of the year. Only this year, I got the biggest one yet! So I will definitely need some help to gather about 350$ before March 11th to pay said bill. So this time, I’m re-opening myself to quick commissions, but exclusively color and kigurumi (yes, I can make costumes!) ones, since sketches and linearts aren’t enough for this situation. ^^;

Petition to sit down all the people who make coma theories about Adventure Time and tell them “listen, this fucking show is about the last human living in a post-apocalyptic world where deadly magic has been reawakened following a global thermonuclear war that wiped out the rest of the human species, how much fucking darker do you want it to be”
Even though I thought my first Creative Writing professor was kind of a douche, he made a good point about this. One of our first assignments was to write in this eerie, otherworldly style (we were mimicking a specific author whose name escapes me), so we had to write about eerie otherworldly things happening. It’s no exaggeration to say that more than half the class had a “big reveal” where we find out that the story’s strange events and themes are all in the mind of some person in an insane asylum, or someone having a drug trip.
My professor said something like, “you just successfully wrote a world that feels separate from our own, but got frightened last minute and shoe-horned in normalcy. You showed that you were afraid to commit to something different and interesting.” Though I’m typically a contrarian and a piece of garbage, I am inclined to agree with my professor. I feel like people who write coma theories and the like are afraid to accept that the world of the story is separate from our own. They like everything wrapped up in this crazy little realism box where nothing out of the ordinary happens in fiction.
