Dashing + Dumbass: Humility in the Key of Pop by kevinbolk Dashing + Dumbass: Humility in the Key of Pop by kevinbolk
Read more "I'm My Own Mascot" here: [link]

Uploading this one a little early since I'll be in New York for Comic Con this weekend. Hope to see some of you guys there! :)

And I'm only a teensy bit ashamed to admit that both of these songs are guilty pleasures of mine. Not sure how Wes over at Scary Crayon (aka: Dashing) feels about them though. XD

Quoting one direction and calling it dashing is stupid so I guess you don't understand that he is saying a bad thing in that sentence see toddintheshadows .

I agree with you. One Directon's lyrics are much more meaningful and wholesome than a lot of other pop music.

I think that's the point. It's Goofus and Gallant for adults.

Though sometimes I thought it would be more like Doofus and Do-Gooder like I saw in a Nickelodeon Magazine parody of Highlights when I was a kid. Gallant was sometimes a total goody-two-shoes. Like is it really that bad that Goofus made a Christmas wish list for stuff he would like, and is really that good that Gallant made a Christmas wish list for stuff to give to others?

I think those should be switched around.
You Don't Know You're Beautiful is a song about how the only way a girl can be beautiful is if she has low self esteem. whereas I'm Sexy and I Know It is about self confidence and knowing how special you actually are.

Win. And I guess it's safe to say that there's just a sort of addicting quality to those two songs, even if it isn't your preferred genre.

Great work with this.

I've always sort of seen that line 'you don't know you're beautiful etc etc' as kind of a back handed compliment...I donno, to me it sounds like telling someone you're attracted to them because they're not confident or comfortable with them self rather then the 'they've never given their looks thought and that kind of freedom is attractive' type of thing that I think it's actually meant to imply.

REGARDLESS this is humorous and vaguely disconcerting XD

I agree~ I've always disliked the lines "You don't know you're beautiful/That's what makes you beautiful", because while a person's modesty or shyness can be beautiful, self-confidence is too! <3

That being said, this picture is still funny and gets its point across xD
