Heise’s Am Panopticum posted by Gandalf intrigued me as I’d only come across the panopticon idea in the context of a design for prisons, workhouses and other institutions, dreamed up by Jeremy Bentham.  The design ensured that the interiors of all the cells and exercise yards would be visible at all times from the central observation block, so inmates could never be sure whether or not they were being watched - thus guaranteeing their good behaviour.  I don’t think - thankfully - that many truly panoptic institutions were actually built, but Millbank Prison seems a pretty good example.  Constructed in the early nineteenth century, it was in use until 1890 and following its demolition Tate Britain was built on the site.  Millbank in all its mist-bound horror is brought wonderfully to life by Sarah Waters in her spooky, gut-wrenching novel Affinity. 

The Tate Britain houses Sargent’s Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose. I had no idea the museum was built on the site of Millbank Prison.

I JUST DISCOVERED SCRIVENER IS A THING

WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME THIS WAS A THING

YOU KNOW, BEFORE I WROTE 73,000 WORDS THAT I WAS MAKING UP AS I WENT ALONG AND KEPT LOSING TRACK OF WHO WAS DOING WHAT AND HAD TO KEEP ALL MY NOTES AT THE BOTTOM OF A MASSIVE DOCUMENT THAT’S GETTING STEADILY OUT OF CONTROL

HOLY SHIT

I

I MIGHT ACTUALLY BE CRYING

I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND

Oh, yeah. Scrivener is a thing.

I found it a few years ago when a list of well-known authors were being polled for their writing-process advice. And something like 75% of them said, “Oh, and if you’re using a Mac, you need to check out Scrivener.”

It’s a really interesting variation on the normal approach to a full-featured software package. It’s not the result of a big development team, with product managers and marketers and a team of programmers. It’s just one guy, and his obsessive pursuit of a program to enable his own writing projects.

The learning curve can be a bit daunting. But if you go through the tutorial to get some familiarity with the basic features, it doesn’t take that long to get productive with it.

And here is the first compilation of my ‘Yzma is Best Princess’ series.  I meant to do it when I completed 10, but people wanted a compilation, apparently.  So here is the first 8.  It’s been a wild ride so far and I’ve still got several more to go >.>

Watercolors, ink and digital outline.

Guys. Lily tweeted, and then she deleted. And I’m freaking out. ==============

Okay, so this is my fan-candidate that I mentioned yesterday. I wanted to keep it as pure and in-world as possible…so I literally just turned on a camera and filmed myself freaking out about a fake tweet for, like, five minutes. It’s pretty much based off this video: http://dft.ba/-8wcA I see lots of places where this could go from here…so I hope it becomes canon. That’d be way cool. Tomorrow! I have a rant for you. Until then! Other Places to Find Me: http://ift.tt/1dJ1yTi http://ift.tt/1cq6bQg http://ift.tt/1be43zm

This happens three weeks after they wrap, during a particularly stormy week.

Yay! I hoped this would make it to canon status. :-)

Jonsi performing live in Game of Thrones. Best joke ever.

This was my favorite part of this week’s Game of Thrones. I somehow remained unspoiled, and when they came on screen I got rather excited.I was relieved when Joffrey only threw money at them. Because when your heroes suddenly appear on GoT, being concerned for their health/survival is a very legitimate fear.

John Singer Sargent (1856 – 1925)

Absolutely exquisite portraits! He just makes drawing look so effortless…
