New Wonder Woman Statue from Infinite Crisis Game...
itswalky: dcwomenkickingass: DC’s newest game Infinite Crisis will feature multiple versions of its iconic characters from various Earths. Wonder Woman will have at least three versions including Mecha Wonder Woman, regular old Wonder Woman and Atomic Wonder Woman. Atomic Wonder Woman? Atomic Wonder Woman. I will not be the least surprised if Atomic Wonder Woman has her own digital comic...
Admittedly I haven’t caught up with all of season four yet but Happy is not a thing I am about Community being renewed I mean I want Danny Pudi et al to keep getting paychecks so yes but I just don’t understand how this even happened

if I had watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer when I was 14 instead of 24, I would definitely actively ship Buffy and Tara like in an incredibly serious sincere way that’s a fact about me
In nerd news, I figured out why Ron is my favorite of the trio. It’s because each of the three, while Gryffindors, represent one of the other houses. Harry -> Slytherin, Hermione -> Ravenclaw, Ron -> Hufflepuff. Was this obvious already? Am I the only one just figuring this out or am I blowing some minds here?
“Alright! I’ve finished all my goddamn paperwork for Canada! I just need to get something notarized when I’m back in town next week and then I can subm-“ All application forms are being updated on May 4th. Please do everything you just did again after May 4th. ha hahahahaha
I SHOULD be filling out visa paperwork but since I found out Kurt is coming on the plane with us as a carry-on, I am shopping for a new more comfortable and airplane-ready pet carrier because PRIORITIES

And, uh, therefore a helpful writing tip. (via annfriedman) Time to write a script to insert filler words into academic papers. “Subject...
That’s my secret, Cap. I’m always hungry.
susiebeeca asked: Hey! I was going through a huge stack of papers yesterday and found some old RiotNrrd fanart that had yet to be scanned/coloured. Are you still updating the site, and would you be interested in seeing it?
Mmmm but when people are like “religion is the enemy of logic” or “invisible sky daddy LOL” What I hear is “Your traditions are so backwards. Connections to your culture, history and community? GET OVER IT. I assume you have never heard of SCIENCE because it CLEARLY DISPROVES your unrelated metaphysical understanding of your life and purpose”
I should take a moment to mention that while living in Canada is comparatively cheap to living in the States, moving across borders legally is incredibly difficult and expensive. Besides all the normal costs of moving across a continent, to qualify for my study permit I have to demonstrate that I can afford to live in Canada, which translates to tuition + $10,000 a year. I am very, very lucky that...
ivegotsoul: elvrey: ivegotsoul: eriemaxwell: rjmakes: GOD I was reading a guide to Vancouver out loud to Ian and in its housing portion it recommended students look in East Van but warned “you still will have to pay $400-$1,000 for a decent one bedroom” and that “minimum wage is only 9.50 an hour” And we really, literally cackled for a full forty seconds It’s $10.25 now! It was like...

Thank you Canadians who have been answering my study permit question to the best of their abilities! I think I will play it safe with my legal sex and go with what’s on my passport. I’ve got some thinking to do on the “alias” bit because my chosen name is also the name I’ve published work under - if they ask I could offer that. Isn’t that the kind of thing...
HELLO INTERNET I have Canadian study permit questions! I am a USian filling out the study permit application - am I going to get hassled if I list my chosen name under “aliases/nick names” or select “unknown” as my sex? I was sort of excited to see both options but if they don’t mean anything except “you will be asked more questions” or worse, “you...

What’s up, Vancouver I am moving into you
confusedtree: One recurring situation that really demonstrates the concept of privilege and how it pertains to race in the western world (and simultaneously shows that having privilege does not inherently make you a bad person) is the reaction to hearing about racism Whenever I talk about my experiences with bigotry, a very common response from white people is stuff like “oh my god this still...
I just watched Whip It again and there’s this food fight scene which is gratuitous and silly but Drew Barrymore (who also directed) is the person who yells FOOD FIGHT and every time I watch it I imagine this conversation “Hey Drew, we were editing the script today and we were thinking we should cut the food fight scene altogether, it’s really cliche and it doesn’t advance...
chibisokka: i’m gonna toss out an Opinion here with regards to something i’ve seen a few times, which is the idea that you should not boycott things that are linked to a negative person or movement because it would harm many innocent people who are only trying to earn money to provide for themselves and their families i think it’s very misguided because pretty much every single capitalist...
gingerhaze: Look, I get it and I used to be one of those people, who was like “I don’t hate women I just hate every female character because they’re written badly!” or whatever and like I want you to spend some time really honestly thinking about why you hate those characters so much I had a friend who HATED Ana Lucia from LOST, HATED her, and I was like “why do you hate her?” and she was like...
wow my queer book blog has like way too many followers I can’t wait until they all figure out I have terrible taste
I don’t want to reblog that buzzfeed post about young people against gay marriage because no, doesn’t need to be on dashboard, no thank you But dang I can’t stop thinking about how that first girl who is literally like “because I would never be with a girl EWWWW” reminds me of two things 1) An adult man I worked with eight years ago, who one day said to me, “I...

toomanyfeelings: rjmakes: You know how some mystery writers tend to combine their mysteries with hobbies that old people stereotypically enjoy? If you don’t know, let me tell you, that is A Thing. There are scrapbooking mysteries, crossword puzzle mysteries, a LOT of baking and cooking mysteries, knitting mysteries, embroidery mysteries, coupon clipping mysteries, and probably more. I did not...
I am legitimately surprised by how many posts in the “god” tag are actually about religion and not, you know, feels
