do you ever think about how little Michelangelo cared

All right, everyone, grab a chair and sit back because I’m going to share with you what I learned about Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel in my Art History Class.
The man NEVER wanted to paint the damn thing. But the pope at the time “forced him to” According to my teacher. Michelangelo hated this man, I MEAN REALLY HATED HIM. So did a majority of people. The pope’s nickname translated literally means “Terrible pope”.
And the working conditions were awful. He had to work on his back with all that paint, which is filled with some toxic shit that gave Michelangelo a limp for the rest of his life. (Also, our teacher made us get on our backs and try drawing with both hands JUST to prove how bad and uncomfortable it is.)
At the time, the ceiling was so high, you could barely see it. You need binoculars to get a good look at what’s up there, by the time people could see the paintings, there was a lot of weird symbolism that Michelangelo hid up there.

This one? The creation of the sun and moon? God is mooning you. And the pope and all others after him prayed under that without knowing.

This one? At the time, dissecting was sacrilegious and everyone found out how behind God was what looked like half a brain. blah blah, science, science, that pissed everyone off.
And also, ALLLLLLL the men and women in the Sistine Chapel are all on fucking steroids. My teacher described the women’s bodies as "Men bodies with boobs slapped on."
And then there is this:

Now this is the back wall. Michelangelo actually wanted to paint this one after he finished the ceiling. (and there was a different pope too, I believe.) However, originally, EVERYONE in that painting was naked. And they didn’t like it. Adam and Eve naked? That’s cool. But Jesus? Now you crossed the line. So the pope at the time hired someone else to censor it and give the important figures clothes. He worked on it for 6 or 9 months before he died.
And then the symbolism in this one is great. Somewhere in the right, there are homosexuals in heaven. (No matter what, the Vatican will say “Those straight men are happy” I’ll get to that in a second), Michelangelo painted himself near Jesus, and the terrible pope is in hell with a snake biting his balls.
And if you were to point ANY of this out to the Vatican, they will deny all of it and claim Michelangelo was a catholic hero. In fact, when they discovered the symbolism around the 60s or 70s, the guy who told the Vatican was kicked out of the Vatican for life.
TL;DR: Michelangelo hated the pope and made the best “fuck you” of all time.

Dude Michelangelo was a BAMF who gave zero fucks 
This is fantastic!! :D

sleepypod said: Hi Max! So I've been having some real writers block as of late. I used to write constantly, as in up to 4am on a school night constant, but now I can't even get out a paragraph. It's gotten really frustrating because whenever I sit down and try to make myself write I can never think of anything or be happy with what I've written. And for when this creative dry spell passes do you have any tips for writing dialogue properly on the grammatical side? Thanks and your blog is a gift from above😘

maxkirin:

Hello there~ ♥︎

Well, I have covered the issue of writer’s block quite a few times already. I would recommend you take a look at my (growing) collection of masterposts on writing advice. I promise you that you will overcome writer’s block, I know you will :D

Now, if you don’t mind. I’m going to take your second question as a great chance to talk about the grammatical side of dialogue. Before we go any further, though, I need to clarify that the following are not ‘rules,’ they are ‘tips.’ Writers disagree on a lot. What you will find below are the way I do things. I recommend you look around, especially in your favorite books, and see how other people did it. Take what you like, leave what you don’t, and create your ‘style’ c;

Again, these tips are not gospel. They are just the way I keep my dialogue trim & clean. I have them formatted as rules because in my mind they’re kind of unbreakable :p

#1. Dialogue should be encapsulated in double quotation marks. Not single quotation marks, for these are reserved for contractions and titled pronouns within dialogue.

Do not write:

'I asked Liam and he said Zain”s favorite musical was “Rent.”'

Do write:

"I asked Liam and he said Zain’s favorite musical was ‘Rent.’"

#2. New speaker, new paragraph. Whenever someone starts speaking, you must begin their dialogue in a new paragraph. You are asking to confuse your reader if you don’t show a change in formatting between speakers.

Do not write:

"Liam you’re such a butt," Zain said. "Well, you’re a butt too," Liam replied.

Do write:

"Liam you’re such a butt," Zain said.

"Well, you’re a butt too," Liam replied.

#3. If the dialogue is followed by a tag (X said) then the period at the end of the dialogue should be substituted with a comma, as these are part of the same sentence/thought.

Do not write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him." Justine said.

Do write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him," Justine said.

#4. Henceforth, if the dialogue tag is in between a long piece of dialogue (or same thought) the period at the end should be substituted with a comma, as it is all part of the same sentence. Also make sure to keep an eye for capitalization.

Do not Write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him," Justine said. "But that would just do him a favor."

Do write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him," Justine said, "but that would just do him a favor."

NOTE: Keep in mind that both of the lines above are grammatically correct. The issue is that the first portrays a pause in the dialogue and two thoughts, while the second one portrays a single uninterrupted thought.

#5. Not grammar-related, but I feel this is something we need to talk about. Do not fill dialogue tags with adverbs or adverbial phrases just for the sake of not writing ‘said,’ especially if you do not truly mean what they express. Said is king in dialogue tags because it’s practically invisible. The reader gets what you try to say and the story is not interrupted. Aside from that, using ‘said’ reserves more impactful words (such as ‘shouted’ or ‘whispered’) to situations where they could be more effective.

Do not write:

Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes,” Zain whistled romantically.

There are a MILLION OTHER MORE EFFECTIVE WAYS to express this without resorting to adverbs or adverbial phrases. Unless you truly mean it when a character ‘whistles’ at another, you would do better to go into more detail than just TELL us he did so ‘romantically.’ I consider adverbs to be the most lazy writing there is. You have told the reader nothing. You literally just wrote a word, shrugged your shoulders, and said: “Imagine this character doing this in a romantic fashion, because apparently you should know it but I can’t be bothered to show you what you should be imagining.”

Again. Do not write:

Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes,” Zain whistled romantically.

Do write:

"Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes," Zain said.

Or, write:

"Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes," Zain whispered.

Or, even better, write:

"Liam…" Zain said, cupping his lover’s face with both hands, "you have the prettiest blue eyes."

Play around with dialogue. Please. Write anything but:

Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes,” Zain whistled romantically.

That should be pretty good for now c; I hope I didn’t get too preachy at the end. Again, these are just the way I do things. I have met writer’s who are okay with not splitting dialogue (and I just don’t read their books because seriously who is talking now? I sure don’t know because you DIDN’T THINK TO SPLIT THE PARAGRAPHS). But hey, you can write however you like. No biggie here c;

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions make sure to send them my way~ ♥︎
