Deaf Pup Learns Sign Language

A 10 month-old deaf Staffordshire puppy Ivor had a rough start in life. Due to his disability, he was abandoned by 5 families before even reaching the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The pup had trust issues, but the staff at the RSPCA Centre showed him enough love and attention and Ivor turned a new leaf as a trusting and sweet dog.

In December Ivor found his forever home with Ellie Bromilow, a woman, who fell in love with the dog despite his deafness. “He’d already learned the sign command for ‘sit’ and ‘come’ from the staff at the RSPCA center, but now he knows lots more like ‘lie down’, ‘stay’, ‘all gone’ and he’s learning ‘roll over’,” she said to express.co.uk.

It’s so nice to know that after such a rough start, Ivor now has his loving forever family.

Truthful Illustrations

Italian illustrator, Marco Melgrati, is a real-life truth teller. He is able to see the essence of social problems today and dress them up in the garb of irony.

In his Instagram account, he publishes works that are inspired by our everyday life. Some of them are just reflections of current events while others are sad realities as old as time.

Shadow Games

The Magic Carpet

The Price Isn’t Right

On point! Even though nothing really new.

The illustrations are great, that Writing Therapy… so related!

Forbidden Love

“Inspired by Icarus, who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. If he was in love with the sun, then this might as well be a story of forbidden love.”

This is how the author himself explains the illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun.

Gabriel Picolo from Brazil is the artist behind this beautiful yet heartbreaking story about love, fire, and loss. He is a traditional and digital illustrator who started gaining traction in 2014 when his 365 days project of drawing every day gained some loyal fans.

“For my drawings, I take inspiration from Studio Ghibli, Disney, video games among other stuff,” the artist wrote on his Patreon. “I love to draw something that is relatable to me and other people as well.”

The illustrated story of Icarus and the Sun is inspired by the tragic mythology.

Gabriel’s interpretation is beautiful, unique and heartbreaking all at the same time.

This is so sad. I know this is how love feels at times… 

Most of the time you’re not the same person as you were where you left off, people constantly change without anyone really noticing until they look back between the past and the present. I’ve change many times after breakups, from my first bf to my last. And even though the essence remains, I am no longer the same.

In short, if you have read the myth of Icarus, then you know how the story ends.

Slay, Ada Vox. Slay!

I haven’t watch American Idol in ages, but apparently has gotten a lot more interesting thanks to drag queen Ada Vox.

Ada Vox, a former-contestant-turned-drag-queen who returned to audition for American Idol after five years, covered Radiohead’s “Creep” on a standing ovation performance.

Sure, the song has been covered hundreds of times, but there’s something about the way this performer crescendos to an unreal high note that will really give you chills.

Truly, Creep is one of my favourite 90s songs. And this was magical.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if American Idol is the show that finally introduces “America’s Next Drag Superstar”, rather than RuPaul?

Ada is definitely the type of Drag Superstar I want to see.

Fila’s Pokémon Kicks

If you are looking for a cute pair of officially branded Pokémon sneakers, look no further.

As tipster Sang points out, Fila is teaming up with Pokémon in South Korea for these “limited collaboration” Court Deluxe shoes.

The designs are inspired by Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Jigglypuff.

These are South Korea only, apparently, and there’s no word yet of an international release. Regardless, they’re cute but I don’t think anyone over the age of 5 should wear velcro shoes without good cause.

Drag Elsa

Mother Nature tried it with Boston and dropped more white stuff than a PornHub clip, but that blizzard was no match for Queen Elsa (or at least a Boston bro drag-queening it up in a drugstore Elsa costume).

Christopher B. Haynes posted a clip on Facebook of a delicately crafted snowflake of subtle glamour single-handedly SAVING the Boston Police Department by pushing one of their stuck paddy wagons out of the snow.

No, Drag Elsa wasn’t trying to break out one of her jailed snow friends. Drag Elsa was doing it out of the goodness of her frozen heart.

Drag Elsa basically sang “Let It Go” to the bitch ass snow holding the wheels of the police wagon hostage, and pushed and pushed until it was set free. 

After Drag Elsa performed that heroic act for Boston, she graciously curtsied.

Um, the Boston Police Department needs to get into that wagon and arrest themselves, because they should’ve been the ones curtsying for Drag Elsa for saving them, and for saving them while keeping her wig game tight. A true queen!

BLACK PANTHER

I had a date a yesterday (date as nonsexual) and he took me to the theatre to watch Black Panther.

My date was fine, he was a nice decent guy, educated and not bad looking but also a bit too solemn and fancy for my taste.

I love my guy more relaxed, playful and wild.

On his side, he told me that I was not what he expected, but as a positive remark. He said I was a lot more interesting, intriguing and surprisingly shy… Which made me laugh because (I always get that) I’m conscious that I gave the impression of being just a dumb slut down for cock.

Regardless, it was a good company for a movie night.

Now, Black Panther…

Black Panther was a revelation, Black Panther gave me joy.

But more than the epic visuals or action scenes, my joy was based on this fantasy world where for two hours Africa is not the damned hopeless continent we know.

The cast was impeccable, GODDESS Angela Bassett playing whatever role she plays will always be to me one of the finest actresses Hollywood has. And Danai Gurira was the best thing, along my husband Michael B. Jordan (I’m polygamous af) and also Winston Duke.

Black Panther is unlike any other Marvel film, this one is big on world-building, empowerment, strong (female) characters and jabs at the current state of the world.

The right movie at the right time for a planet in decline.
