The eraser on top is the Paper Mate Union Eraser.
I thought it wouldn’t work much, but… It erases ink.
And NOT JUST ballpoint pen ink, India Ink too.
If you make a mistake, this eraser can erase the whole thing and leave no trace AT ALL, although you do need to erase quite vigorously.
It’s only about 1-2 dollars.
The eraser pencil on the bottom is just that. It is an eraser that you can SHARPEN like a regular pencil. The brush on top is so that you don’t smear your art when you try to push off eraser crumbs. You sweep them off with the brush.
Even if you’re not an artist, signal boost please?
It’s a very cheap way to get around life.
SHUT UP FUTURE FISH I AM NOT IN THE MOOD
you know it’s kind of funny that so many people are picking orange colours for me because i generally don’t like orange very much at all except for a very select few reddish and yellow-y oranges that i love a whole lot and you guys keep picking those ones. i don’t know how i managed to get associated with them but it makes me very happy :’>

'Girl in a Country Song - Maddie & Tae'
I know country music might not be your thing and you’d be more than justified in that, but it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. So I was so happy when I stumbled on this. THIS VIDEO IS AMAZING! And the song is excellent too.
In the video they have the usual girls you get in country videos, thin, wearing bikinis, tans, washing cars, swinging sexily on swings, etc. Then juxtapose them with men doing the exact same thing. IT LOOKS RIDICULOUS, therefore it is hilarious. But also makes the point of why do women have to do this stuff?! It’s one of the best examples of this I have seen, because they get it so spot on.
The lyrics also point out the ridiculousness of bro-country songs today.
'Well I wish I had some shoes on my two bare feet / And it's gettin' kinda cold in these painted-on cut-off jeans / I hate the way this bikini top chafes / Do I really have to wear it all day? (Yeah baby)'
'How in the world did it go so wrong? / Like all we're good for is looking good for you and your friends on the weekend, nothin' more … / … Now we're lucky if we even get / To climb up in your truck, keep our mouth shut, ride along / And be the girl in a country song'
My only problem is that the lyrics are all about ‘how it used to be better’ and things, that ‘perfect golden age’ that doesn’t really exist.
I’m in fucking love with this
But also I think the “golden age” they’re referencing is the days of like Loretta Lynn and her country political upheaval with like “The Pill” and shit like that. Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells—women who were about making sure women were respected and got a voice in country and weren’t singing necessarily cutesy songs and OK, they got shit for singing politics (“The Pill” jesus christ listen to it some time and then think about Loretta Lynn’s life story) and I’m not saying these white-as-hell women are necessarily the best revolutionaries, but these women put feminism into country music in the 1960s (‘It wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” is pretty awesome when you listen—it basically calls out men in country songs directly for glorifying male adultery and shitting on women for the same).
So there’s that.
can… can I marry this song?
