Frollo, upon meeting Gaston for the first time. True story.
OK, reblogging because this is just too hilarious a plot twist/fic idea not to…
Oh my god
The tortilla chip one gets me every time
Original Sin #007
Holy crap, a picture of Gamora that doesn’t make her look like a damn waif?! The boob-cuppage is still egregious but otherwise I’m in love.
WHY ISN’T THIS THE LAW ALREADY ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ALSO THE WORLD
we also have a law that doesn’t let “WELL IT TURNS OUT SHE WAS A HE” and “HE WAS BEING GAY AT ME” be a defense for beating someone up. :3
You guys. It’s… it’s… the one. THE ONE WHERE KILLER MOTH MAKES ROBIN TAKE HIS DAUGHTER TO THE JUNIOR PROM.
I am grinning so hugely right now LET US BEGIN.
- REMEMBER HOW FANG IS A FREAKIN SPIDER THIS IS THE GREATEST EPISODE OF TELEVISION IN EXISTENCE
- Honestly who wouldn’t want Robin aka Sooo Close To Being Nightwing to be their prom date?
- and JAPANESE THEME SONG thank you everyone involved in making Teen Titans thank yoooouuu
Discovered this in my search for a Halloween icon. I just want to draw everyone’s attention to that third image. Because, well…
Yes, yes it is.
Well, this should do for now, though I’d love to find a 4-eyes shot that doesn’t suck. It’s better than last year’s, at least.
I may end up torrenting MULTIPLE seasons of Teen Titans in order to get a semi-decent Halloween icon. It should not be this hard.
(I don’t usually post other people’s art on this blog, but there’s an uncredited/unfinished version of this floating around tumblr with the artist’s name removed, and as an artist, that’s just the worst feeling! AND THESE PICS ARE AN AMAZING TAKE ON POKEMON. Let’s get this version out there! :D )
annabeth and sadie beat a god
percy and carter beat an alligator
i think we all know who the real power couple here is folks
and that’s not even going into how carter’s solution to “how will we get in touch” is
"well obviously im gonna put a spell on this new guy so that he can never say my name and when he does i’ll know he needs help but not where he is or what’s going on
and the girls were like “cell phones. we have that option.”
Since I started this blog four years ago I’ve reported on problematic merchandise featuring DC Comics IP too many times to mention. And it seems to go the same way:
1. Post on item
2. Get worked over in comments, Twitter and comics forums by people stating one or more of the following:
- feminists have no sense of humor aka “Ah yes, more, more bullsh*t from the feminist brigade”
- that there are “real problems” in the world and question why “this is even an issue”
- I’m a woman and have no problem with it
- I showed it to my wife/daughter/girlfriend/mother and they had no problem with it
- You “misinterpreted” the item
- comics are for dudes so get over it
- why did I ignore that other thing so clearly I am a selective journalist that just hates DC and finally, always a favorite,
- I’m an ugly bitch SJW feminazi who needs a good dickin’
And yup all that stuff got said this week when I posted about a t-shirt featuring Wonder Woman and Superman that basically elicited a huge EWWWW from most people who saw it.
Coincidentally another t-shirt popped this week that state the wearer was “training to be Batman’s wife”.
And that got an equal amount of disgust.
But this time? This time DC Comics responded to the issue and we got this:
DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain t-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.
I have to admit I’m surprised to not only see them comment but acknowledge the problem and say they will try and fix it.
Good job, DC.
Husain Abdullah received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for praying on Monday. [Yahoo]
This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year.
it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.
good fucking lord
Disgusting. I’m a lot more likely to take offense to Tebow’s jamming his Christianity into my face (and I do) than I am to this man taking a quiet moment. Abdullah is allowed his faith every bit as much as the other goofs in sports.
#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.
That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
Wow, vegans caring more about animals and people. Are you surprised? I’m surprised.
