sorry to hear about your audition. yea general ppl in entertainment ppl want women size 0-2. look for some chicks it makes sense but MAJORITY OF THE WORLD doesnt; rather have a healthy beautiful woman, than a frail chick who im afraid to touch w/o breaking
it was for a superhero/cyborg too, so i dont know why they wanted someone so small. oh well. just need to workout harder i guess. must. work. harder.
they couldnt squeeze my ass into the costume. or my breasts. they wrestled with the costume and my body but these genius comicbook guys got one that’s a size 0-2. its a shiney metallic colored latex catsuit. welcome to my life. i’m thinking idk what you men are doing but theres no way you’re gonna squeeze deez double d’s into that tiny little thing just stop embarassing me. and my ass isnt even big, i swear, but they couldnt get zipper over it either. just an embarassing ordeal overall -_-
If I hear one more special snowflake say she’s “not like other girls” i will punch her in her special face. because SHE’S JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER GIRLS WHO THINK THEY’RE NOT LIKE OTHER GIRLS. Who think that somehow possessing qualities of the quintessential male archetype make her different. No girl, you’re not different. You’re just a misogynist. I c ur internalized sexism, and I’m not impressed.
but I have this camera interview/audition thing tomorrow to play some female cyborg character for some comic for promotion at nycc, and despite the fact I really wanted this particular job before, it gets in the way of my personal nycc plans, where I was assembling a possee that fits with the character I was going to be and have been working on her outfit… so i’ve sort of entertained self sabatoge?
I lied and said I was only available for 3 of the 4 days of comiccon so I can use one for myself, and this may be a big impediment to my getting the job.. and even if it’s not, I just suspect i’ll be less than stellar tomorrow when they put me into costume and make me interview people on the street like that for the audition process..
and i just don’t know what to do. To sacrifice a good opportunity in lieu of my personal desires and just.. blah idfk.
I’m not 100% crazy about their character or her outfit but this isn’t about me, and just… god what is this word ramble i dont know. I dont know. I’ll see how tomorrow goes.
Sylvia Plath: There certainly isn’t enough genuine talent for us to take notice.
Rudyard Kipling: I’m sorry Mr. Kipling, but you just don’t know how to use the English language.
Emily Dickinson: [Your poems] are quite as remarkable for defects as for beauties and are generally devoid of true poetical qualities.
Ernest Hemingway (on The Torrents of Spring): It would be extremely rotten taste, to say nothing of being horribly cruel, should we want to publish it.
Dr. Seuss: Too different from other juveniles on the market to warrant its selling.
The Diary of Anne Frank: The girl doesn’t, it seems to me, have a special perception or feeling which would lift that book above the ‘curiosity’ level.
Richard Bach (on Jonathan Livingston Seagull): will never make it as a paperback. (Over 7.25 million copies sold)
H.G. Wells (on The War of the Worlds): An endless nightmare. I do not believe it would “take”…I think the verdict would be ‘Oh don’t read that horrid book’. And (on The Time Machine): It is not interesting enough for the general reader and not thorough enough for the scientific reader.
Edgar Allan Poe: Readers in this country have a decided and strong preference for works in which a single and connected story occupies the entire volume.
Herman Melville (on Moby Dick): We regret to say that our united opinion is entirely against the book as we do not think it would be at all suitable for the Juvenile Market in [England]. It is very long, rather old-fashioned…
Jack London: [Your book is] forbidding and depressing.
William Faulkner: If the book had a plot and structure, we might suggest shortening and revisions, but it is so diffuse that I don’t think this would be of any use. My chief objection is that you don’t have any story to tell. And two years later: Good God, I can’t publish this!
Stephen King (on Carrie): We are not interested in science fiction which deals with negative utopias. They do not sell.
Joseph Heller (on Catch–22): I haven’t really the foggiest idea about what the man is trying to say… Apparently the author intends it to be funny – possibly even satire – but it is really not funny on any intellectual level … From your long publishing experience you will know that it is less disastrous to turn down a work of genius than to turn down talented mediocrities.
George Orwell (on Animal Farm): It is impossible to sell animal stories in the USA.
Oscar Wilde (on Lady Windermere’s Fan): My dear sir, I have read your manuscript. Oh, my dear sir.
Vladimir Nabokov (on Lolita): … overwhelmingly nauseating, even to an enlightened Freudian … the whole thing is an unsure cross between hideous reality and improbable fantasy. It often becomes a wild neurotic daydream … I recommend that it be buried under a stone for a thousand years.

So very interesting! I once had a book rejected.
"Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rolling was rejected 12 times.” Imagine how hard those publishers are hitting their heads against tables, walls, pretty much any hard surface they can find.
