The Pimientos are especially Especial

I know no one cares and no one will listen to this, but we are actually in Daylight Savings Time right now in the U.S.

So if you say something is at 8 EST right now, you’re wrong, because that’s Eastern Standard Time. You mean Eastern Daylight Time.

It’s easier to just abbreviate to ET - Eastern Time, or whatever time zone (or CT, MT, PT, and whatever Alaska and Hawaii’s time zones are).

Also, the dollar sign goes IN FRONT of the amount. $100. Not 100$. I don’t know why everyone just all of a sudden started having a hard time with that. I mean, have you ever looked at a receipt? Ordered anything online? Looked at a sales tag? The dollar sign goes FIRST. I mean I understand getting it messed up if you’re not American, because I know in some other countries the currency marker thing goes at the end of the amount. But if you ARE American, and you consistently get it wrong, then I’m sorry, you’re just an idiot.

Or else you’re some kind of recluse who has never been in a store or ever looked to purchase anything online and never had an elementary math book that included word problems about things costing money, in which case, I apologize.

1. I Sigh, You Sigh, We All Sigh for Yu Tsai

antmfunny:

Everything we need to know about Yu Tsai having a permanent role on this show can be expressed in the models’ reactions:

I mean, even the way he informs the models is as if he’s delivering bad news. Normally, the models clap and cheer when they hear they get to work with literally any no-name and they’re just like, “Really? You don’t have Johnny Wujek hiding back there somewhere? Can you check again?”

As far as creative directing goes, Yu is a poor man’s Wujek. He’s a poor man’s Jay Manuel, too. Worst of all, his personality is a poor man’s Bryanboy… and nobody wants that. Yu doesn’t have to be likable, necessarily, but he should at least be entertaining rather than irritating. Why the hell didn’t Franco Lacosta get offered this full-time job? Ridiculous! 

It’s early, so I’ll give Yu more of a chance, but initial indications are not looking promising. Don’t call Chantelle an X-Man just because she has a skin condition. Reminding Ivy that she’s not sexy and Romeo that he has no muscles mid-shoot doesn’t seem like effective feedback either.

If coaching Adam to do weird workout poses is what Yu considers fashion, we’re in for some shitty photos this year. Then again, it may be better than the zero poses Adam was prepared to offer himself:

image

Out of moves after 10 seconds? Take note, Jamie Rae! That still leaves 110 seconds of unpleasant humping before he moves on to the next item on his agenda.

I actually started to detest Yu when he calls Josh “a unibrow and beard.” He’s literally just mocking the farmer/aspiring model when he asks, “Do you need a cow here to start milking it?” Josh responds that he does not need a cow, but Yu is so proud of his joke that he proceeds to repeat it anyway by shouting it to the entire set. “WE NEED A COW SO HE CAN MILK IT SO HE CAN FEEL NATURAL IN HIS HABITAT.” Ugh. Look who’s having a cow now, Yu. At least a bovine could offer Josh more constructive criticism.

Still, even that moment doesn’t top Yu’s instant resentment toward “Matt.” After Matthew pretty sheepishly states his name preference, Yu gets really indignant as if he should know Matthew’s name better than Matthew does. Later, he has the gall to exaggerate the situation, portraying it to the judges like Matthew had been an aggressive diva. Clearly, the editors are not fans of Yu either. They could have cut that to make it look like it was Matthew being unreasonable, but instead they replayed the moment again after Yu distorted the truth to be like, “Shut your fucking face, Yu!”

Yu really doesn’t take being corrected well and insists that it’s an issue of “respect.” However, Yu has no right to bring up respect when he tells Matthew:

image 

Thankfully, Miss J is the voice of reason on this issue, pointing out that Matthew’s name IS Matthew. Cutrone, of course, agrees with Yu because she’s all about people giving her unconditional respect that she hasn’t earned. Tyra also sides with Yu: 

image

For the record, Tyra doesn’t bother to correct anyone, she just quietly has that person killed. And with any luck, Yu will say Tyra’s name incorrectly before the cycle is finished; we need both Jays back.

Ah yes, that one image I needed for my project apparently no longer exists.

*SCREAMING*

If the image was online and you have a url for it, you can see if it’s in the Wayback Machine.

http://www.archive.org/

Just a fyi that site’s just awesome to remember anyway, especially for dead links here on tumblr or over a tvtropes, and so on.

Anyone else having this problem where when you type in the paypal url, it open up this huge Paypal window that completely blocks out everything else on your computer, including the Start menu button, and when you open the Task Manager, it won’t let you switch programs, and closing your browsers with Task Manager doesn’t close the huge paypal window?

Every time I google this solution all I get are results like “how to add a Paypal donation button to your page!” which is exceedingly not helpful.

Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.

Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.

(via nerdhapley)

True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.

Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.

Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.

And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.

It makes me happy to know I’m pretty much the same height as Spider-Man.

Wait, Tony Stark’s not really 6’6” is he? That must be with the armor.
For some reason, it weirds me out that I’m taller than Cap and Punisher and the Thing, but it would weird me out if I wasn’t taller than Tony.

 he’s 6’6” in his iron man suit.  616!Tony is around 6’1” or something out of his suit.

I’M GOIGN TO PISS I’M TALLER THAN WOLVERINE
