Oil on canvas, previously attributed to Johann Zoffany, 1779;
Dido Elizabeth Belle is depicted here with her cousin Elizabeth Murray. This painting scandalised many of it’s 18th century audience due to its portrayal of Belle, a woman of colour, in a non-subservient position. Considered to be one of the first paintings to do so, it was probably commissioned by Belle’s father Admiral Sir John Lindsay in the late 1770’s.
“Your hair is red. That’s my second favourite colour.”
“What’s your first favourite colour?”
“Is that technically a colour though?”
“It is if I say so. I control words, they don’t control me. Now I imagine you want to touch my muscles. You may want to use both hands, they’re quite large.”
A DASHCON BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD STILL PROBABLY BE TERRIBLE.
Their new event (Emoti-Con) is
- Being run by at least one of the Dashcon admins (Cain Hopkins) despite their ‘explanation interview' being a total and monumental failure
- A lot of the text on the Emoti-Con website is taken straight from the Dashcon Facebook page
- The date and venue set for Emoti-Con 2015 is exactly the same as initially set for Dashcon 2015
- The Indianapolis Convention Centre now has the details for Emoti-Con 2015 but still links to the now-defunct Dashcon website
And it’s absolutely hilarious.
