The Trail of Lights got some good graphic design this year.
Of all the hilariously stupid lines in Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” the one that irks me the most is the part about there not being snow in Africa. Before you think it’s some sort of hyperbolic symbolism, like, Christmas is going to suck so much this year that there won’t even be snow, check out the full verse:
And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas timeOh my god, Bono, what the fuck? Yes, in the entire giant-ass continent of Africa, there is no snow, rain, or flowing rivers. It’s not like they have mountains all over the place. Jesus.
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?
But, whiskeyboat, you say, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” was specifically meant to raise money and awareness for the 1983-85 famine in Ethiopia. Well, joke’s on you, because it snows in Ethiopia. In fact, Ethiopia’s Semien Mountains are “remarkable as being one of the few spots in Africa where snow regularly falls.”
And on that note, here are some images of snow in Africa.
Many successful women suffer from impostor syndrome. Impostor syndrome is the feeling that you’re a fraud—that you’re somehow less qualified than your peers, less deserving of success, and that you’ll be ‘found out’ if you don’t work longer and harder than everyone else.
There’s some really great sailor moon gang fanart out there. I wanted to do my own… I present to you “Mahou Knifefight”. Prints will be available at Otakon~! There will also be an update about that very soon…. *A*
