glitterandbrine asked: Please allow me to fall on the top five sid/jack moments request like a rabid animal!!!! Or if someone else has already done this important work, top five Sidney Crosby fashion disasters, b/c his version of dress well play well is a joke, honestly.
Someone else asked for the top 5 Sid/Jack moments! So instead you get rash-inducing fashion choices.
I’m not going to go into footwear. The crocs are offensive, but not unique to Sid. I think of them as occupation-related footwear; it’s like when chefs wear crocs, or nurses. I can roll with it.
What I can’t roll with:
- THIS FUCKING SUIT.
A: The least egregious. I would make the shoulders fit a bit tighter. He has a small divot below the shoulder joint, and the shoulder line is rumpled slightly. (I suspect there’s a gap between the shirt collar and suit lapels, as well, but I don’t have proof.)
B: The seat fits incorrectly. If he turned around, he would have sag in the ass, which you can tell by how low the crotch of his trousers is. The waistband should sit above the navel in front and above the curve of the ass. These trousers are sitting below the navel and on the curve of his ass, and so they’re sagging around his thighs.
C: I would be willing to charitably call this a full break, were it not for the problem of B. It looks like he’s wearing daddy’s trousers. (I really think a half or quarter break looks the classiest on suits, but w/e, this looks stupid even if you like a full break.)
D: The sleeves are too long. They shouldn’t wrinkle that much when the arm is slightly bent.
E: The suit jacket is too big. A suit jacket should not hang straight down, but should taper slightly in at the waist (on a modern suit). This is also too long for the lapel cut. Perhaps shortening by an inch or two would make it look less like an overcoat. I really don’t think he should wear a three-button suit; I’d put him in a 2-button, which is a good all-around look, very contemporary.
Lies Big Bang have told us.
You know, I’d really been hopeful that I wouldn’t have to write about Big Bang Press again. I said my piece last time and I stand by it, and in a perfect world that would’ve been that.
Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world, and, over the last few days, I’ve come to doubt my last post’s basic assumption. Specifically, that the people involved in Big Bang were well-meaning but naive.
I don’t think that any more. Now, I think they’re intentionally misleading and exploiting fandom—and, more importantly, fan authors—in order to turn themselves a profit. And that I do have a problem with. Not the “turning a profit” part, mind; Big Bang is setting up a business, businesses (hopefully) make money. I myself live a comfortable upper-middle-class lifestyle thanks to the proceeds of business, so it would be hypocritical for me to deny anyone else the same. But the way Big Bang is going about it, by outright lying to fandom, is objectionable.
Hence this post. And no, I’m not the only person saying these things (check the reblogs on the original post). So think of this as a signal boost, if you will.
(Massive tl;dr ahead. Consider yourselves warned…)
tries to murder his fansfor the Chicago Loves Pits calendar photoshoot (X)
Every time I turn around someone else I’m friends with is into hockey fandom. Guys, I want to get it. I really want to understand. Teach me. Show me the cute boys.

torigates asked: TOP FIVE AUS TO COME OUT OF THAT ONE PHOTO OF BEN MANSFIELD IN GLASSES
FOR THOSE NOT IN THE KNOW, TORI AND I SAW THIS PICTURE AND THEN LOST OUR DAMN MINDS FOR, LIKE, TWO HOURS ON TWITTER AND WE WEREN’T EVEN A LITTLE SORRY:
1. BECKER/JESS LOVE ACTUALLY AU. He’s a blocked writer of military history who only writes on a broke-ass PC from the 90s that tech-savy local girl Jess keeps having to come over to fix. MAYBE HE THROWS IT DOWN THE STAIRS ONCE OR TWICE SO HE’LL HAVE AN EXCUSE TO CALL HER, MAYBE HE DIDN’T, MAYBE HE’LL SHOOT YOU AND THROW YOUR BODY IN THE LAKE, WHO CAN SAY.
2. Becker gets rejected from the military for being nearsighted and becomes a charmingly rumpled assassin. THE GOVERNMENT HIRES HIM TO ASSASSINATE DINOSAURS. Jess likes his glasses. HE LIKES JESS. Kissing.
3. Becker has to go undercover as a college TA. JESS COMES IN FOR SOME EXTRA CREDIT, IF YOU CATCH MY DRIFT.
4. Becker quits the dino life and goes to live in the woods. Jess quits the dino life and goes to live in the woods with him!!!!! Don’t worry, they have wifi.
5. IDK, JESS AND STUBBLE BURN, I’M GROSS AND NONSPECIFIC.
THE LOVE ACTUALLY AU IS STILL MY EVERYTHING. IT’S HIS FAVOURITE TIME OF DAY, DRIVING HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
