The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
Although I agree with the above statements, I should point out Harry Harlow never did this experiment, it’s a hoax. http://untrue-posts.tumblr.com/post/83985402037/the-experiments-of-harry-harlow-and-his-associates
My hands come a long way since the 9th of May when a tree fell across the road right in front of me, while riding my motorbike home. I’ve got some movement back in them, but it’s still got a long way to go, maybe another few weeks, I miss being able to draw and ride my motorbike but if I keep up the physiotherapy it won’t be long.before I can do all that again! I know i’ve just been reblogging stuff but hopefully I can start posting my own art again soon! Thanks to everyone who’s been patient with my recovery and apologies to all the new followers who are expecting art but haven’t actually seen anything from me yet, haha.
“Acclaimed animator Glen Keane unveiled a first look at his latest and most personal project to date, Duet, as part of a special Advanced Technology and Projects session at the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco.
Presented together with Regina Dugan, who leads the ATAP group, Glen gave a live demonstration and talk through the creative process behind Duet.” - http://www.animationmagazine.net/features/glen-keane-debuts-short-duet/
“Keane has been working with Google’s technical team to create an interactive animated film, dubbed Duet, for mobile platforms. Duet is scheduled to be released later this year.
"One day we hope to have a new type of film festival… one that is mobile," Dugan said.
Keane added, “I see myself as an artist first. Fortunately, everything I’ve animated has tested me in learning something new. In embracing this new technology, I feel like I’ve rediscovered a love for animation.” -http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9249402/Google_looks_into_a_future_with_3D_tablets_interactive_animation

So the Dashcon story thus far is this, according to on-site witnesses:
A bunch of Tumblr kiddies all got rooms in the same pre-booked hotel, which the Dashcon staff supposedly had a verbal agreement with the staff of to pay them after the con,…
This is it, this is Tumblr, we all said “what would Tumblr people be like if they all got together?”, we all joked about how terrible it would be, and this is it. It happened and unfortunately we were right.
Shoutout to all the artists on Tumblr who work on something for weeks and only get 4 notes
Shoutout to all the artists on Youtube who do amazing speedpaints and, if they’re lucky, will get 500 views
Shoutout to all underappreciated artists who do amazing work and receive no recognition
