Cheese and Cabbage for Everyone!

I’m not sure exactly when I started stealing cheese, but as you can see, I have accumulated quite a pile. With the advent of Skyrim SE, I also added cabbage to a collection that would make Sheogorath’s eyes well up. If anyone is hungry, just stop by Heimskr’s shrine in Whiterun and dig in. But be careful–most of that food is stolen. You know how those guards are.

Featured Artist

This is an embellished screenshot by my friend Jowain on DA (jowain.deviantart.com). He has a vision of Miraak that I have never seen. This particular work shows a humanity in him that few, if any, would ever see. Enjoy, and be sure to check out his other work. Not only is he a fan of Miraak, but he has some memorable vampires, and his deep sensitivity has allowed him to write some very touching pieces.

The Bias Virus

Here is an article written by my daughter Aspen for her psych class. The instructor liked it so much that he put it up on the blog.

Get Psyched, Louisville!

Bias virus imageNearly every parent can remember a time when their child wanted to wear a certain outfit or eat a certain food because “that’s what mommy and daddy do.” It’s no question that kids are copy cats.

However, kids may pick up on much more than just eating habits. A recent study shows that children can actually “catch” social bias from adults, even when they don’t openly say anything biased.

Kids in this study watched videos in which adults showed positive gestures (such as smiling and leaning in) to one woman and negative gestures (such as scowling and leaning away) to another woman. Although the words that were spoken between the adults and the women were the same, the kids still showed a strong preference for the woman the adults were nice to. Not only that, but this preference actually carried over to the best friend of the woman, suggesting that…

Marie’s Mask and Boobs

 

This is a simple screenshot to show off the new Dibella mask available in ESO’s Crown Store. This is Marie, and she worships Dibella, so I absolutely had to have it. I really love it. It has a Mardi Gras feel to it.

Aaaand, Marie’s dress is rather revealing.

Brave Guy

I have always said I wasn’t into politics, but since Donald Trump took office, I’m paying more attention. I still wouldn’t normally comment, but I believe this picture needs to be seen by as many people as possible. This guy is brave, honorable and inspiring. He is standing guard for the very people who wish him harm.

Taking Some Time Off

Hello, frens. Thanks to everyone who has been reading my blog and looking at my artwork for so long. Due to some family issues, I have been taking a hiatus from writing and artwork.

What is going on is that my mom is very sick. She is dying of cancer, and while she’s actually doing very well, they don’t expect her to live very long. I’m her primary caregiver, so I spent most of my time either taking care of her or just resting. Hopefully I will be able to start posting again soon. In the meantime, stay tuned and say nice things about me.
