You’ve Got Mail: A Cautionary Tale – BLACKBOX TRANSLATIONS
The Peng Society for Gentlemen — a secret friend-making club for the homosexual men of the Great Xia Dynasty. Its services were designed to help its members along in their quest for their lifelong partners. Upon paying a monthly fee of fifty coins, members could get themselves listed in The Pengornisseur after providing a self-portrait, a mailing address, their age and hobbies, as well as a self-introduction. All members would receive a copy of the monthly publication, and they could communicate with one another in private using the information in The Pengornisseur.

Wu Xingzi, a bachelor about to turn forty, worked as the adviser to the magistrate in Qingcheng County.

Qingcheng County was a place with barely any resources. In other words, it was poor. In the list of counties of the Great Xia Dynasty, it had been ranked at the bottom for the past two hundred years.

Wu Xingzi felt that his life was hopeless: not only was he a homosexual, he was also a virgin. Even his retirement fund was lacking. Worse still, his looks were… forgettable.

He might as well die.

godoflaundrybaskets | Audacity Chains
What are audacity chains:

Basically, they can keep a list of effects that will get applied to a selection of audio. They’ll be applied one after another. OR they’re also useful to keep track what you’re using particular parameters for. Like, if you use a 0.3 decay + 0.2 delay echo for telepathy and different settings for inner thoughts, but it’s the same setting. Instead of having to write those settings down and constantly switch them, you can have them saved as a chain that just applies a single effect - one which you’ve namd “telepathy” or “inner thoughts.”

Making a pair of Bodies – Angela Clayton's Costumery & Creations
The pattern i’m using is from Norah Waugh’s “Corsets and Crinolines”. This pattern is labeled as being from the early 1600s, but i’ve seen very similar ones used for recreations from the mid 1500s, so i’ve decided to use it for just that!

~WastedWeeds~: Beige-Brown Kirtle with Grey Guards
Finally!
The "Kirtle of Perpetual Procrastination" is complete!

I'm now one step closer to finishing that elusive fitted gown outfit that I started planning an embarrassingly long time ago (like, an absurdly long time ago...to that point that it's getting ridiculous).

I first sketched out this version some 3 years ago, but I now know that so much about the outfit --from the materials to the colour scheme-- isn't supported by historical evidence, and as a result it's languished a bit.
It seems historical-ish on the surface but I can't find much evidence of a kirtle in this colour, and the material (a mottled wool cashmere) is definitely off for the period.

Recreating 16th and 17th Century Clothing: The Renaissance Tailor
Does the thought of making your own patterns leave you in a cold sweat? Does the thought of making patterns for other people make your hands clammy? Are you working from a pattern that you've gotten to fit by changing it over a number of failed tries and mistakes in good fabric?

This demonstration will show how to draft what is known as a "Basic Body Block" for the torso. After the basic block is developed, I'll go on to show how to make the pattern 'more period'. Once you get this method, you'll never have to rely on outdated or incorrect patterns again! This particular method combines both historical and modern methods to achieve a good starting pattern on paper. Once you've got that, you can move on to develop a mock-up in cheap fabric which you will then use to address any issues in fit. Once the mock-up is done, you will be able to take that apart and use it to make a paper pattern that will fit perfectly...

xparrot | On The Untamed/Mo Dao Zu Shi
A couple days ago the sister and I finished watching the cdrama Chen Qing Ling/The Untamed (an adaptation of the danmei (BL) novel Mo Dao Zu Shi/Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation). This was after we'd watched the first season of the donghua of MDZS and then read the translated novel last autumn, so I'm coming at this story from all sides. So! have a bunch of disorganized thoughts about it.

This post is made because I don’t want to wall of text on that Chinese names post.

As a translator, I like to normalise the usage of pinyin honorifics and titles the way Japanese honorifics and titles are normalised in anime/manga. If you’re familiar with anime/manga, I’m sure this list is familiar to you: -san -sama -kun -kaasan -niisan -neesan -sensei -senpai -chan -bucho -shacho. I see no reason at all why we can’t do the same with Chinese honorifics except for the easily translated occupational ones.

"It's only a sin in excess, my dear," said Aziraphale. "Like gluttony."

He dabbed the corners of his mouth with a paper napkin. They were sitting at a plastic table in a cramped and ill-lit Indian restaurant in Islington which just so happened to be the best in the city: Aziraphale had boasted about it and in the aftermath of an extremely good curry Crowley was prepared to admit you could take Dishoom and stuff it up your arse. Aziraphale hadn't even let Crowley look at the menu.

He was so thoroughly stuffed with pilau rice that it took him a moment. What were they talking about? Sins, that was it. Crowley with a hand over his abdomen watched the angel sopping up the last of his balti with naan—not letting a single drop escape him—and said, "Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Have you done it?"
