Q:ok, so I have a thought. if I'm traveling 60mph and my destination is 60 miles away, and the closer I got to my destination, my speed decreases accordingly so that I would always be moving at such a speed that it would always take me an hour of traveling to arrive. 30 miles away and 30 mph, 10 miles and 10 mph, but what about feet and inches and even measurements smaller, would I never reach the exact spot? assuming I'm even capable of reaching such a precise spot. what would that be called?
“Attack eyebrows!!" i think that’s all we need to know about Twelve
[x]I haven’t seen the episode yet, and probably won’t for a couple days later, but some of these gifs really make me want to because Peter Capaldi looks great. I keep dreaming of a Doctor who is exactly like his character in “In The Loop” because that would be magical.cersei-the-truth-bombardier,surrealthemuse? Sorry if you think the gifs are spoilers. I personally don’t care
Yeah I am gonna watch it… A lady can hold out some hope that the right actor with enough leverage can cause some changes…
But like I want everyone to chill out too; one episode does not a reformation make.
I really enjoyed Capaldi’s performance in this episode, but yeah, Moffat wrote it, so there are problems.
In which John Green teaches you about the poetry of Sylvia Plath. When a lot of people think about Sylvia Plath, they think about her struggles with mental illness and her eventual suicide. Her actual work can get lost in the shuffle a bit, so this video really tries to focus on the poetry. You’ll learn about Sylvia Plath’s role as a feminist poet, and you’ll also learn about her extraordinary ability to recreate the experiences of real life in beautiful and relatable way.
John’s open letter to suicide (starting at 3:45 in the video) has been on my mind since I heard today’s news on the death of Robin Williams. I’ll let it speak for itself.
Alright, an open letter to suicide. Dear Suicide, you are a permanent response to a temporary problem and you are a solution to nothing. I just want to say that at the outset, there is nothing good or romantic about you, Suicide. You are a tragedy. You are also, in almost all cases, preventable.
Abe Lincoln had periods of intense, paralyzing depression throughout his life and he became the best president of the United States ever in history, except for Franklin Pierce. I’m kidding, Franklin Pierce, you were the worst.
There is a correlation between depressive personalities and creativity, but people who are suffering from paralyzing depression don’t create anything.
So, it’s very important to me when we talk about a writer whose life ended with suicide that we note that people survive depression. And also that Sylvia Plath wasn’t a good writer, because she eventually committed suicide. In fact, her career was cut short and I mourn all the many wonderful books we might’ve had.
In short, Suicide, I don’t like to say mean things, but you suck. Best wishes, John Green.
I’m not one to usually care about the lives of celebrities, but there are some worth making an exception for. And it’s hard to imagine a greater exception right now.
From the time I was a child, Robin Williams provided a joy and laughter in my life unlike any other.
His characters were wild and fantastic. Animated, live-action, genuine, or satirical. The Genie, Mrs. Doubtfire, Captain Shakespeare; they were phenomenal.
His comedy special, Live on Broadway, remains among my favorite stand-up shows ever, and is the only one on that list which I was able to enjoy while still living in the era it was recorded.
This drink’s for you, Mr. Williams. On the heels of a battle against depression, I hope you’ve found the same magnitude of sheer joy you brought to millions in spite of it all. You will be missed.
I was about to write something very similar with the same caveat about not usually commenting on celebrities.
I can’t overstate how much I loved Aladdin as a kid. It was absolutely my favorite movie, and it was completely because of Genie. I even went trick-or-treating as him one year because I loved the character so much. He was a cherished part of my childhood and I was delighted to discover some of his more “adult” content later in life too. I don’t think the news of any celebrity’s passing has hit me as hard as this news today. Condolences to his family, friends, and fellow fans.
REAL TALK WITH BRIZZ: On Bullshit and Video Game Developers
Omfg people let’s get real does anyone buy this “women are just too hard to animate to make them PCs in video games” fuckery? Cuz it sounds like some Grade-A, all-natural, 100% organic, grass-fed bullshit to me. Like, seriously, don’t give me this “it’s the placement of the hands and legs because of shorter limbs” shit because HUMAN SEXUAL DIMORPHISM IS ACTUALLY NOT THAT EXTREME SO LIKE WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK ARE YOU EVEN GOING ON ABOUT?
Like for real does anyone actually believe this? It’s like game developers can’t get away with saying “we have to market to our audience, which is male” anymore because people are finally understanding that women are like 50% of the gaming population so now they need another bullshit excuse to get away with being sexist fucks.
And even if this were true (which I’m positive it’s not) why is it even actually a good excuse? It’s like saying, “Oh, we can’t have women soldiers because now we’ll need to get uniforms to fit them” or “Oh, we can’t have women in congress because we don’t have any women’s bathrooms so we’d have to build them” – which is basically saying “I’m too fucking lazy to put in work to ensure equality” and if that’s the case then FUCK. YOU. And that’s all it is: FUCKING. LAZINESS. If it really is actually harder to animate women and that’s why you refuse to do it, then you’re just fucking lazy, so don’t give me this fucking schlock. Almost no one else is allowed to be fucking lazy at their jobs so neither should these wanks.
God. Seriously. I just can’t even with these people right now. Don’t try to make up some horseshit to cover your ass for being lazy, despicable misogynist shit-stains because AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT.
This whole thing blew up recently because of Assassin’s Creed Unity cutting playable female assassins and they never actually said it would be harder to animate a female character compared to a male character, just that it would be twice the work to do everything for two different models.
"It’s double the animations, it’s double the voices, all that stuff and double the visual assets. Especially because we have customizable assassins. It was really a lot of extra production work." - Ubisoft creative director Alex Amancio
Double the voices at least I can understand. Like, I know that BioWare had to hire Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale to both record all of the lines for Commander Shepard in Mass Effect, but the animation thing is just some hot bullshit. Most animations done for a male character don’t have to be completely redone from scratch to work on a female model. I was going to post a few relevant quotes from a blog post written by the animation director for Assassin’s Creed III, but actually, I recommend you just read the whole thing.
You gotta love dialogues in porn.
Ok, well, this particular dialogue is not from porn, it’s from a parody web series. James Gunn’s PG Porn, Episode 4: “Roadside Ass-istance”. James Gunn wrote, directed and starred in this episode as Lance the Mechanic. He also directed Guardians of the Galaxy.
Assassin’s Creed Unity - We had to cut playable female assassins because they’re too much work
Hyrule Warriors - So far we have announced 8 playable female characters (7 if you don’t count Sheik twice) and only 5 male characters.
