WHOOPS I’M BUYING TWO T-SHIRTS THIS WEEKEND

cubewatermelon:

School’s back in session, which means the return of Let’s Speak English!

This is number 25, and it’s the first longform story! I still get gleeful when I really think about this night. So many other little things happened that I couldn’t include, which might make it into strips later.

For instance, Shinoda, one of the guitarists, threw his pick into the crowd and I snatched it and was able to have him sign it. I also got a chance to talk to Wowaka briefly and have him sign a CD. Also 50 other things!!

If you like crazy indie rock, you can check out Hitorie’s videos on youtube. I believe they’re all available in America now!

And I’m sure I’ll see ya soon with plenty more goofy shenanigans in Japan!

Mary Cagle is too cute I CAN’T HANDLE IT.

Familiar feels.

KirkwallCrossing is going to PAX East!

Hey guys! Sorry for the delay between updates, but I’ve been frantically trying to get my town - and myself! - ready for my first PAX this weekend!

I’ll be toggling through my town’s homes all Friday and Saturday, so if you’re going too then maybe we’ll StreetPass! I may even have the gates open at some point so you can come see what’s new, and I’ll try to post about it if I do.

If you see me, come say hi! I’ll be dressed like my mayor up there, as you can see. We’ll make sure you get a StreetPass if you want it.

Okay, more patterns on the way! :D

WHOOPS I’M A COSPLAY NOW.

The darkness is upon us.

Another character that kind of has a fucked up premise

youngbadmanbrown:

is Wonder Woman.

Imagine you’re raised in this utopian, women only warrior society (this part isn’t fucked up) and you’re taught all about how outside of your society which is magically shielded by super-science/magic 

there lies “man’s world.”

Man’s world is just horrible and fucked and violent place you hear stories about and the people who inhabit it and you reach a point growing up where you probably think “okay mom, it’s probably not that bad. Shit I bet men don’t even really exist you’re just fucking with me.”

And then a fucking man shows up on your island. He’s not at all like the ones that you’ve heard about. He’s not some violent monster who wants to ruin everything he touches. He’s a good dude. You decide you want to go see man’s world, you fight for the right to become your peoples champion and ambassador. It’s your job to share with man’s world the wonders of Amazonian society.

You get to man’s world and it’s fucking astounding. There are crazy tall buildings and cars and ice cream and all these different cultures  and music and it’s just fucking mind blowing.

And there are lots of men. They’re walking down the street side by side with women. They aren’t murdering them, they aren’t reducing things to cinders. Obviously all the stories your mother told you were horse shit.

But then you start to pull back the curtain. You hear and see men disrespect women on the street. You go to the mall and wonder why all the mannequins are the same size if all the women clearly aren’t. You see all these magazines telling women what’s wrong with them, what they have to do to please men. That’s when you start wondering what’s up with this world.

You find out women are paid less then men, that no woman has ever been the leader of the United States, you see crime statistics, and you find out that this Steve Trevor, who you really thought was a good person, is an agent of a government that has declared the assaults on female soldiers “occupational hazards.”

Then you realize it’s not just the United States, it’s all over “man’s world.”

It hits you that this place is even worse than all the stories you heard.

And the worst part about it is: the gods that you’ve been raised to worship and fear, the gods that you know fucking exist, don’t want to do shit about it.

Imagine what that would do to you?

I wanna read about that Wonder Woman, the Year One Wonder Woman who’s like jesus in the temple flipping shit over. I wanna read about the Wonder Woman who’s so appalled by the conditions of man’s world she marches into the UN and tells everyone off. The Wonder Woman who meets a crying girl on a street corner, finds out that her boyfriend just laid hands on her and then goes and cuts off his hands.

Writers too often fall back on all that mythology shit as if Medusa and hydras and gorgons are the worst monsters that Diana can fight.

The monsters Wonder Woman should be fighting are the ones her mother told her about as a kid

YES.

oops I did a hundred hours of dog research (original)



Come here, listen to my Wikipedia research. It’s very scientific, assigning dog breeds to fictional characters.
Leslie Knope - Golden Retriever “They will work until they collapse, so care should be taken to avoid overworking them.”  Leslie is probably less patient, however.
Ben Wyatt - Border Collie One of the most intelligent breeds, Border Collies get a little weird if they aren’t being mentally stimulated enough. You can also dress them up as Batman.
Ann Perkins - Doberman “the breed is well known as an intelligent, alert, and loyal companion dog”  Ann will mess you up, okay?
Ron Swanson - Tibetan Mastiff “intelligent and stubborn to a fault”, “not an appropriate dog for apartment living”  I think the word they’re looking for is “obstinate”.
Chris Treager - Greyhound In every possible way. I’m a little spooked, actually.
Tom Haverford - Pomeranian “very friendly and lively”, “can suffer from separation anxiety”  They’re also pretty smart, and do well with guidance and training. Also the size thing.
Jerry Gergich - Great Pyrenees “can be slow to learn new commands” - “Oh my god Jerry! When you check your email you go to AltaVista and type ‘please go to yahoo.com’?”
Donna Meagle - Afghan Hound Obviously the most fabulous looking dog, but also “can be aloof and dignified, but happy and clownish when it’s playing”
Andy Dwyre - Mutt I figure he’s tried to eat his own poop from time to time, but he’s not a bad guy
April Ludgate - A cat

But you know there was a whole episode where they figured out what kind of dog each of them were and actually it was Donna who was the cat. But I definitely get the thought put into this.

Woke up and saw this is getting passed around again suddenly - thanks guys! ^__^
Tumblr is hella bad at dates on things, but I did this in January of 2013. I saw the episode you mean though, and we started screaming at the TV before Donna could get all the words out of her mouth. I like the choices the show made too, and I can totally see Donna as a cat the more they flesh out her character.
It was super fun to do, and even if I didn’t have the same conclusions as the writers, I’m glad tumblr sees the fun in it. Plus, I learned stuff about dogs! :D

Perfect.

DO NOT DISTRACT SERVICE DOGS!!!!

nocturnalvisionary:

Hey everyone, this is just a quick reminder that I hope not just service dog peeps reblog, because it’s especially important to those who don’t have service dogs. Please please do not distract service dogs. I know it’s sometimes cool to see, and a lot of us are dog lovers, but making eye contact, asking to pet, petting without permission, whistling, talking to the dog, putting your hand down towards the dog, stopping in front of the handler/dog to stare at the dog, all these things qualify as distracting the service dog. they may seem harmless but they AREN’T. you have no idea what that service dog is there for, they are working, and they need to stay focused on their handler. You can accidentally be the cause of the handler being hurt by distracting the service dog.

Case in point: Today I went to Costco with my friend, we both had our service dogs. Many people were stopping us, talking to us, asking us questions, she has a merle Great Dane, so it’s not common. But a quick trip that would take an average person 10 minutes took us about a half hour because we had to keep stopping or asking people not to distract the dogs, or leave the dogs alone. And then we missed someone. A woman saw my service dog, Scarlett who is still in training and started talking to her. Scarlett crossed over me to see this woman which made Scarlett step on my foot, and trip me, I landed HARD on the Costco floor (which is concrete). And this woman only said “oh, she smells my dogs.” and still stood there hoping for a conversation as two dogs and my friend are trying to help me up, which is NOT easy with leg braces (they finally left after glaring at us when my friend told them they can’t talk to service dogs). Finally using the Great Dane I was able to pull myself up and had to use him as a crutch the rest of the way out. My back is hurt, my knee swollen, and I’ll be recovering for a bit especially considering I was already recovering from a hurt back. ALL OF THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED had she not talked to my service dog.

SO PLEASE remember, if you see a service dog, IGNORE IT. I know it’s cool, I know they are rare and pretty and it’s really amazing and we love dogs, I totally get that, but distracting the service dog can really potentially injure the handler.

A good reminder!

Dragon Age: Inquisition Helmet Kit (on Etsy)
Woot, it’s finally available! :D This project took a few months to plan out, build, sculpt, and mold. Allen and Sarrah did absolutely phenomenal work. I asked Allen for a gun-metal paint job on mine, and this is the result! The helmet fits M/L size heads and debuted at the Socially Awkward Studios Podcast. :)

Helmet Maker: Allen Amis of Allen Amis Creations
Co-Creator: Sarrah Wilkinson of Red Nebula Cosplay
Project Manager: Anabel Martinez

Wow. I love it :D

Looks like I’m gonna be one of Those Nerds you guys. This is the year it happens. Eventually you’ll find me dead beneath a mountain of Star Trek novels and video game armor replicas and I DON’T CARE.

I love this one! I have both Genji and Francine in my town, and he gets SO HUFFY if you suggest she might be stronger than him. But I always figured he was secretly a fanboy!
