That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw (by the1janitor)
We used to draw this as kids and it’s always confused me. It still really bothers me tbh.
This is really creepy tbh.
yeah we used to draw these! around 2002. at the time i was told it was like the slipknot logo but now i know it’s totally not. but we did used to get in trouble for drawing them.
we never got in trouble with them. I had them all over my school planner lol.
(We did call them ‘super S’)
There’s this awesome book I read called ‘The People in the Playground’ which concerns the observations of an anthropologist on children’s folklore: the stuff that kids independently teach one another in school yards and playgrounds that has no real connection to adult lore and media. This is a great example of it, as are hand clapping and jump rope verses.
If you can finish the lines “Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack all dressed in black black black…” or ‘Hinky Pinky Ponky, Daddy had a donkey…”or “Miss Suzy had a steamboat…” or “Engine Engine number nine…”
stop and think about where you learned them.
It probably wasn’t from an adult or out of a book or in any formal way. It was from another kid; someone a grade ahead of you or someone’s older sibling or something. Who learned it the same way.
This is CHILD lore. Sometimes a fad will come and go in a single age cohort, sometimes it’ll last for generations. It’s kind of awesome.
The idea of child lore and a distinct child culture is really interesting, especially when you consider that children have a few traditions that go back hundreds of years.
For example: did you ever play “Quaker’s meeting?” Quaker’s meeting has begun, no more laughter, no more fun…that dates back two centuries.
And of course there’s “Ring around the rosie,” which goes all the way back to the time of the black plague.
Children pass these things down among themselves as part of a legacy they lack the context to fully understand; but you could say the same thing about most adult traditions. That unbroken chain of shared knowledge connects their play to the play of children from hundreds of years ago, without any adult input or encouragement.
I love the Lego Movie so much, and and I connected with Unikitty’s thinly-veiled anger issues on a spiritual level, so I figured I’d make an animation out of the (clearly) most important character.
yo! this awesome comic idea was all kiyuto's doing ^^ (i just drew it n3n) so, all the credit goes to kiyu! (enjoy~)
EDIT: ruby and jaune are supposed to be having like a ‘leader’ group meeting (thus weiss and pyrrha getting all antsy and stuff)
do me a favor and don’t look at the last panel. do me a favor and don’t look at any panel. I am going to eat
THIS IS AN AMAZING IDEA FOR A PRINCESS OMG
In which Episode 9 had me thinking: Blake is a dork.
Yang totally rents
Bruce Leeaction movies and copies fighting moves from them, occasionally inviting Ruby and/or Blake to join in on the fun. Weiss won’t have any of it and bemoans the situation.

zooweemama these two cycles took me a while to complete but here i am woop woop
One of my Asian friends goes by an American name but his official birth certificate name is wooshin or something like that and whenever a sub tried to reads that he’ll just go “it’s pronounced kevin”
so many questions
my only regret in life is that my voice is too high pitched and babyish for me to ever be a successful punk rock singer
Nonono pick the most hardcore badass punk rock song you can find and sing it with all your heart and soul
People from miles around will pay to hear this
CRIES LOUDER (but still very punk rock)
