A little Ted Kord for Mike Norton’s birthday
Four Redesigns I did for She Has No Head’s new article by Kelly Thompson
The theme were characters that need a redesign.
My pal Kelly Thompson has an awesome post up this week with some redesigns of female costumes by Kris Anka and Meredith McLaren. Above are Anka’s design for Raven, Harley Quinn, Starfire and Emma Frost. Go take a look. Sadly the comments more than meet internet commenting standards.
I love the Harley and Emma redesigns, and think the Raven shows a lot of promise (I’m sure when I’m not sleep deprived it’ll be aces!)
The Starfire one doesn’t do anything for me, personally, but it’s a far cry better than what she debuted with in the New 52, that’s for sure.
Overall, brilliant artwork!
P… Pyro-senpai… I didn’t know you cared…
It reads “Pyro wishes you the best of luck on finals!” for those wondering.
guy: tell me what are ur plans for the future
|Playboy:||There's a video on YouTube called "Peter Dinklage Gets So Much Pussy" in which two guys talk about how much you've been getting laid since Game of Thrones. They estimate your sexual activity has increased 600 percent in the past few years. Does that sound about right?|
|Dinklage:||It depends. By "pussy" do they mean actual pussy? Or is it a metaphor, like for gardening? Because if that's the case, then yes, I've been doing a lot of gardening lately. If they mean sex, they might be getting me confused with somebody else. But if pussy means wearing old-man sweaters and watering my herb garden, then absolutely, I'm getting so much pussy.|
Take a first look at Angela, the biggest new character in the Marvel Universe, in this cover for Guardians of the Galaxy #5 by Sara Pichelli!
HAHAHAHA Suck it McFarlane!!!
Oh yay. A shitty character in a book that forgets about everything that made those characters fun from the DnA run.
Guardians of the Galaxy? You disappoint me.
Inversely, I doubt very few have fond memories of paying $23 in late fees because they were too busy to return Predator 2 before the due date.
Hey, screw you, at least Danny Glover ACTUALLY BAGGED ONE. Schwarzenegger just hung onto the ropes until that Predator tapped out.
Danny Glover > Arnold Schwarzenegger
True Fact: I prefer Predator 2.
This gifset is a bit misleading. It doesn’t mention the part where he said he came to really appreciate the original series as an adult and has since watched all of the episodes. The writers he worked with are huge Star Trek fans. His philosophy was to try and make the movie accessible to everyone while still acknowledging the die hard fans. Whether he succeeded is a subjective opinion that you all can make on your own, but I think some folks are being unreasonable by judging him for the opinions of his youth. While I was a huge TNG fan as a kid, I also found the original series hard to watch until later in life.
I have seen every single episode and movie of every Star Trek series ever made. I think the reboot was amazing and will bring a lot of new fans to the source material. Movies are supposed to be more spectacle and TV shows usually delve deeper into philosophy. I guess I’m hoping the success of the movies may lead to more television series so we can have the best of both worlds.
I think Frogman makes the most important point here - gifsets like this can be damning, and we’re quick to condemn without all the facts being present.
For me, this was never a big deal - he says quite clearly “As a kid” in the first picture. As a kid, I didn’t like a lot of things - Star Trek being one of them (to be honest, I still don’t groove on the original series. TNG, on the other hand, is amazing.) As an adult, however, I can look at Trek and appreciate it a lot more than I did when I was younger. There’s something poetic about the idea of humans coming together in harmony to continue exploring into our next frontier. Roddenberry created a world - no, that’s too small - a galaxy of substance, and I see that now.
But it doesn’t make me a bad person for finding TOS a bit boring as a kid.
