This will probably be uncomfortable for all of us.

I'd like to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals. (Cis/bi/magical realism girl.)

Third in the Kinstuck series. The Makaras!
Human!Goatdad is a Turkish diplomat and, as he is almost always away on business, his eldest son GHB has had to act as de facto guardian and caretaker for his two kid brothers, Kurloz and Gamzee, for most of their lives. It’s no easy task balancing his duties as Mayor with his duties as an older brother, especially considering the fact that his younger brothers are just about the worst family a highly visible, highly scrutinized, highly conservative politician could hope for. phemiec:

    going back through my art tag for reasons

    I still love this stupid joke

  5. slipstreamborne said: Also I'm pretty sure Donnie has the kanji for the number 9 on his right temple/by his right eye, which is considered an unlucky number in Japanese because of how similar it sounds to pain/distress/suffering. So either it's like, "you get close enough to read this and you're gonna regret it" or Splinter was all "oh my poor blind child LOL".

    man the whole 99 cheese pizza schtick proves that splinter has a delightfully twisted sense of humour, but is it as twisted as don’s sense of how to scare others? WHO CAN SAY

(i'm going with the 'quick' translation, ok of the things mikey would pride himself on, his fastness attribute would be high up the list) and UM THESE LINE UP WITH THE THINGS THEY DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS TO APRIL? NINJAS MUTANTS (beasts) TURTLES and if you wanted to push it, you could easily associate early/quick to TEENAGERS. OH MAN WE CRACKED IT

    slipstreamborne:

    yes yes his speed is TOTALLY something he’s proud of (“I’M A SNAPPING TURTLE, FOOL!”)

    GOD WHY DON’T THEY JUST RELEASE A BEHIND THE SCENES ART BOOK ALREADY????

    Do not test Reza Aslan.

    We must train and retain our ability to listen and process critically.

    Nobody told me that @RezaAslan knew how to read.

    (Not read as in books, but read as in reveal your scalp to the world.)

    Because homie read Bill Maher, Don Lemon, Alisyn Camerota, Benjamin Netanyahu, and just about everyone else for points.

    Hair all over the damn floor like it was a barbershop and nobody had a broom.

    He got ALL his kee-kee’s in.

    Watch.

  12. "

    “Do what you love” disguises the fact that being able to choose a career primarily for personal reward is a privilege, a sign of socioeconomic class. Even if a self-employed graphic designer had parents who could pay for art school and co-sign a lease for a slick Brooklyn apartment, she can bestow DWYL as career advice upon those covetous of her success.

    If we believe that working as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur or a museum publicist or a think-tank acolyte is essential to being true to ourselves, what do we believe about the inner lives and hopes of those who clean hotel rooms and stock shelves at big-box stores? The answer is: nothing.

    Do what you love, love what you do: An omnipresent mantra that’s bad for work and workers. (via bakcwadrs)

    a couple of other quotes from the article i really like:

    According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation but is an act of love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, presumably it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace

    and

    Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life! Before succumbing to the intoxicating warmth of that promise, it’s critical to ask, “Who, exactly, benefits from making work feel like nonwork?” “Why should workers feel as if they aren’t working when they are?” In masking the very exploitative mechanisms of labor that it fuels, DWYL is, in fact, the most perfect ideological tool of capitalism. If we acknowledged all of our work as work, we could set appropriate limits for it, demanding fair compensation and humane schedules that allow for family and leisure time.

    Fooling exploited people into thinking everything is just the way it should be is one of the most disturbing things about capitalism.

  14. I guess the thing that bugs me about every James Bond film ever is that they get the cocktail glass wrong. The Vesper Martini (and yes he names it after her) is four measures of Gordon’s or Beefeaters, one of vodka (it doesn’t matter which because they are all alike), and a half measure of Lillet Blanc (this French citrus wine that’s super gross on its own) and it’s meant to be served in a cocktail tumbler, not the triangular goblet martinis are served in. It’s shaken, not stirred, because the relative density of vodka and gin require shaking, stirring doesn’t actually mix them. And it’s meant to be served with lemon, not olive, which maybe two of the films get right. This is all in the books people. Check yr facts.
