It genuinely bothers me how good an idea Danny Phantom was. The premise of a teenage ghost superhero fighting evil spirits while living in the home of his ghost hunter parents is such a truly fresh idea I’m astonished it happened at all. There were so many problems with the show and I can’t tell if they were the fault of the creators or Nickelodeon trying to keep it too close to Fairly Odd Parents instead of letting this brilliant idea breath and act as its own entity. Can you imagine how amazing this show would have been in a post Adventure Time post Avatar environment that would have allowed it to explore the narrative it was clearly interested in weaving? The potential this show had bothers me so much.

@czaaritsa whenever I hear about this show it makes me think of you

I still think my favorite of these stories is how @dianeduane wrote a game and wore a t-shirt with the name of the game on it and a dude started badgering her about how she couldn’t possibly have played the game, so she told him the ending. Like the queen she is.

So.

The Sound of Silence is probably one of my favorite songs ever. When speaking of the “true” Simon and Garfunkel version (as opposed to the version where they added background music to in post to make it more “pop radio”), it’s a song that gives me chills.

Disturbed is not a band that I really enjoy. I remember in college, my (now) wife gave me a copy of a Disturbed CD, because she had two for some reason. I tried to listen to it, I really did. Didn’t do anything for me.

But this? Holy fuck, this is stunning. This is amazing.

This gives me chills.

Holy shit, you have to listen to the whole sing. 

I have chills. 

Holy SHIT.

This is the band who did “Down With The Sickness”????

UM?????

If you stop before three minutes you’re missing the truly mind-blowing bit

I’m almost angry about how good this is

Goosebumps. Every time. LOVE IT.

Aja Naomi King’s Inspiring Speech on Overcoming Self-Doubt at the 2017 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards   

My inner critic is strong but I know that I am stronger. I can’t get rid of him; he’ll always be there, a voice in my head telling me to not even dare to dream for something more, that they’ll never give you that, don’t bother fighting for this. But that is exactly what makes me so fierce. Because even with his voice, his monstrous size filling up the space underneath my skin, I still choose to try, and I still choose to believe. All the evidence of my life thus far is telling me that this is no accident, that I do deserve to be here. When I was struggling to write this speech, my little sister said to me quite simply, “You have everything you need.” And she’s right. I have everything I need because I have her, and I have my other little sister, and I have my mother, and I have my father. And I have all of you, and we all have each other. And as long as we continue to be a shield for one another, support each other, lift each other up, and love each other fiercely, we all have everything we need.

seriously sit and try to think about how ridiculous naruto’s backstory is. The 3rd didn’t give a shit and just left him money sometimes and when he’s like ‘why don’t I have parents?’ instead of just being like ‘kid they died’ he goes ‘sTOP ASKING QUESTIONS!!’ also where was jiraya?? hello? your student had a kid and then he died and they named the kid after your shitty oc and you’re not even going to help take care of it?? even until he can maybe take care of himself?? WHERE is the ninja orphanage. WHO was checking up on naruto in his tiny apartment that they put him in when he was like 5 years old. Who let Sasuke go and live in the house his family was murdered in.

At the Rostelecom Cup Short Program, we do indeed see Victor being rather icy with JJ.

Just look at Victor’s face in that screencap. It’s very rare to see him react like that to anyone. 

But let’s put this into perspective of what just happened at Yuuri’s last competition in China.

Victor remembers Yuuri’s struggles at the Cup of China. He forced Yuuri not to listen to the cheering for the other competitors because of how much it got to him.

Now think about what JJ is saying to Yuuri at the Rostelecom Cup. “Hey, take those earplugs out. Did you HEAR that?? Your fellow competitor just landed a quad loop.”

Now, I don’t think JJ is doing this maliciously, but Victor isn’t going to care.

He’s going to care about how Yuuri will react to JJ drawing his attention to the success of other competitors.

JJ doesn’t catch on. He keeps going by drawing more and more attention to a jump that Yuuri can’t even do himself. (He can do a quad toe loop but not a quad loop.)

Victor shuts JJ down here. He downplays his own ability to do a jump that Yuuri can’t and discourages further conversation on the subject.

Victor’s reaction is basically: “I swear to god, if you send my boyfriend into a panic attack right now, you are going to regret the day you were born.”

I go to the theater alone a lot- maybe all my friends have already seen it, or there’s only one ticket available, or other folks are flat-out not interested. I actually saw The Light Years by myself last week. I figure I’m going to sit in the dark for the bulk of it anyway, who cares if there’s a person with me? I do miss chatting with someone after the show but there’s twitter for that.If you’re really concerned about looking like a loser, get there closer to show time so you aren’t standing around in the lobby by yourself for a long time.

And now, my infamous story about going to the theater alone:

My friends who worked for TDF had an extra ticket to Jerusalem on Broadway. It was a single ticket off to the side, away from their group, but I said sure because it was free Mark Rylance. I was late getting to my seat so I sat in a free aisle seat for the first act, then climbed over an elderly couple to my actual seat during the first intermission. The guy sitting in the seat next to mine turns to the elderly couple and says jokingly “I told you she didn’t stand me up!” And I said “I don’t know you!” and long story short, we’ve been together for 5.5 years.

“The last time I checked my textbooks, the specific therapy for malnutrition was food”
-

Dr. Jack Geiger, quoted in Rebecca Onie’s Ted Talk  What if our healthcare system kept us healthy?

“In 1965 Dr. Geiger founded one of the first two community health centers in this country, in a brutally poor area in the Mississippi Delta. And so many of his patients came in presenting with malnutrition that be began prescribing food for them. And they would take these prescriptions to the local supermarket, which would fill them and then charge the pharmacy budget of the clinic. And when the Office of Economic Opportunity in Washington, D.C. – which was funding Geiger’s clinic – found out about this, they were furious. And they sent this bureaucrat down to tell Geiger that he was expected to use their dollars for medical care – to which Geiger famously and logically responded, “The last time I checked my textbooks, the specific therapy for malnutrition was food.“”

Comics creator Rob Liefeld says casting an Asian American Iron Fist would be ‘reverse white-washing’

The controversy over Iron Fist casting began long before the Netflix show was in production, with fans campaigning for an Asian American actor to be cast Danny “Iron Fist” Rand.

Created at the height of the 1970s kung-fu movie craze, Iron Fist is an American who learns martial arts from masters at the hidden city of K'un-Lun. He becomes their best student and earns the power of Iron Fist, the ability to channel superhuman energy into his fists. Basically it’s a story about a white guy being better at martial arts than everyone else, steeped in tropes that critics regard as examples of cultural appropriation.

Marvel wound up casting actor Finn Jones, who is white and has no martial arts background, and the backlash returned when a new trailer was released this weekend. That’s when 1990s comics legend Rob Liefeld chimed in, arguing that an Asian Iron Fist would be “reverse white-washing.”

[READ MORE]

“Reverse white-washing” I’m choking

By the way… this is the same Robert Liefeld, who drew this monstrousity:

Shut up Rob, and learn how to fucking draw!!

Fucking rob

Control your Tits of Freedom rob

I love that Robert Liefeld thinks anyone is gonna listen to his thoughts on what is and isn’t racist, dude doesn’t even know what a human being looks like.

go draw a million fucking pockets and leave the discussion to people who know what the human body looks like you jingus

arthur weasley, aka the world’s biggest muggleboo who probably larps as an office worker on the weekends

officemaster: you have… *rolls dice* successfully transferred the call to your boss’ voicemail! you hear the distant ringing of the fellytone from the inner office for a moment before the machine picks up, securely delivering the regional manager’s message to its intended recipient.

arthur weasley: *pumps fist in air, high-fives xenophilius lovegood*

sirius black: is it my turn yet?

officemaster: no.

xenophilius lovegood: i search the supply closet for binder clips.

officemaster: *rolls dice* you find a small cardboard box with three binder clips in it, but in the process of retrieving it from the high shelf, you knock a bottle of toner off. it hits your left pinky toe. *rolls dice* you lose 1 HP.

xenophilius lovegood: best fetch quest EVER.

sirius black: so is it my turn now?

officemaster: no, shut up. remus?

remus lupin: wait, is arthur still at the front desk?

arthur weasley: yeah

remus lupin: i approach the front desk. *clears throat* “Hello, Shirley. Were there any messages for me while I was out?”

arthur weasley: “Yes, Mr. Crumplebottom. Phillip Smythe from home office called about your business trip. I put him through to your voicemail.”

remus lupin: “Good work! Thank you very much. I shall remeber this come time for your Christmas bonus.”

sirius black: is it my turn yettt???

officemaster: merlin’s balls man, yes, it’s your turn

sirius black: i attempt to seduce the visiting sales representative

remus lupin: what? you can’t do that

sirius black: sure i can, i have like 25 charisma points

remus lupin: but we’ve all got the casual friday modifier right now, and if you get a sexual harassment lawsuit we can’t advance to the next meeting until the litigation phase is over

sirius black: i’m chaotic neutral, what were you expecting?

remus lupin: besides, arthur’s receptionist character found out she was married in the last session, remember? you would have to roll a natural 20

arthur weasley: hey, no metagaming–sirius’ character wasn’t there at the time, he was trapped in the fax machine

xenophilius lovegood: i still don’t think that’s how fax machines actually work

officemaster: sirius?

sirius black: yeah, arthur’s right, i couldn’t have known about that. *shrugs* i attempt to seduce her.

remus lupin: oh my god i hate you so much right now

sirius black: get bent lupin

remus lupin: you wish

sirius black: i don’t have to

officemaster: *rolls dice* *winces*

sirius black: what? what happened?

Yeah! What happened?!

Sirius botched both his action and his save. His character was fatally bear-maced in the face. Remus’ character was forced to spend an entire session on sensitivity training for his remaining employees. Sirius returned in the following session as a dual-class IT guy and paladin.

(Bunnies and Sunshine)

Easter is coming up! And it’s a terrible time for pet store bunnies!

Rabbits are marketed as “easy”, short-lived, starter pets, especially during the Easter holidays, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! A healthy, well cared for bunny can live just as long as the average cat or dog- 10-12 years!

What’s more, they have more complex needs than a cat or a dog. Rabbits are prey animals and do not behave or show affection in the same way as predators like cats and dogs; they don’t deal well with being outside-only animals; they can get sad if they’re on their own and don’t receive enough attention; and if they’re bought as a male and female couple, they can start reproducing from as early as 5-6 months of age, and they can carry multiple litters at the same time!

They have a specialised diet (NOT carrots!), need a specialised living area (unless you want all your things to get chewed up!), and they need specialised vets! Caring for them costs as much as caring for a dog!

They’re a big responsibility!

This Easter, Make Yours Chocolate!

Pipelines are the safest, cleanest manner of transporting fossil fuels and environmentalists are generally the biggest hypocrites on this planet.

Pipeline breaks: hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil leaked

Solar panel breaks:

There’s a broken solar panel.

Wind turbine breaks:

There’s a broken wind turbine.

Also, something being safer than other options doesn’t make it safe.  An average of 280 significant pipeline breakages happen in oil pipelines a year.  Even that incomplete list I used last year had over 625,000 gallons of oil being spilt in just a handful of incidents.

Other hard data presents that every year significant pipeline events occur at a rate of almost one a day costing between hundreds of millions and billions of dollars every year in just lost oil  sales.  This isn’t including pipeline malfunctions, situations that easily could develop into significant events, which would roughly double the numbers to being about one every 12-14 hours.  Between 7 and 38 people die each year and between 50 and 110 people are injured.

Additional Source.

And the discredit a counterpoint pre-emptively, the factoid of 2.4 million miles of pipelines in the U.S. is true if you include every type of energy pipeline.  If you restrict it to oil pipelines there are only 72,000 miles of oil pipeline.

So between 350 and 700 incidents every year over 72,000 miles of pipe.  In the first two months of 2017 we’ve already spilt 322,000 gallons of crude oil in just three incidents (Ozark Pipeline for ~15k, Magellen Midstream partners for ~140k, Seaway Pipeline for 168k).  In two months an equivalent of 4.5 gallons for every mile were spilt in just three incidents.

Promises of “This one will be safe, we promise!” are hollow promises as well, since that was the exact line used to push the Keystone XL Pipeline before it too had an oil spill last year, spilling 17,000 gallons.

Didn’t one just spill into the Mississippi?

From what I can tell, no matter when you say “didn’t one just spill?” you’re probably right.

There’s currently one in Alaska leaking that can’t even be repaired until enough ice melts, according to the company. 

pipeline leaks in the US, 2010-2015: 

1986-2016:

(be sure to zoom in on that page to get the full effect! it even includes a map with red dots indicating all the places where people died bc of it!) 

that 7-38 number is way too low, btw. deaths from leaks are estimated at about 300 per year since 1986. 

oh, not that much compared to other energy sources? wanna compare those numbers to deaths caused by nuclear meltdowns, which scares the living shit of just about everybody and for good reason? 

but yeah, lets keep building pipelines. best possible option here. definitely.
