Goddammit, this is still the greatest webcomic ever.
The cutest little booble that ever boobled.
First time rigging and animating a character in after effects. It was fun!
OH NO IT’S A BABY!!!!!!!!!!
Scientists still have no heading in discerning what has been causing these holes to form.
Tell your mom to stop confusing the Russians.
What if Tumblr being a haven for awful “feminists” is actually a patriarchy plot to turn sane, equality-minded people away from actual feminism?
You’re much stronger than you think you are
I’m never gonna pass off the chance to reblog this because hell, sometimes knowing that some one fictional will be there in times like there really does help.
This makes me love Superman even more.
I prefer Michael Straczynski take on a similar scene
Superman: A being capable of moving the heavens and Earth itself, will always take the time to let you just how important you really are
Fuck everyone who says comics aren’t important.
"…why is it that the very basic definition of feminism is what no one can seem to grasp?"
I’m starting to feel like the anti-feminists are far too gleefully tearing down feminism when in reality, it’s just the people on tumblr with victim-complexes who have coopted the movement and twisted it into something worth railing against. Everyone has an agenda. I wonder about some of them.
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
Reblog this if you pronounce “.gif” as “GIF.”
WE SHALL SEE WHICH ONE PREVAILS.
I really want this to be true. (x)
Do you think that when Steve Rogers sneezes, one of the Avengers goes up to him and whispers, “God Bless America”
Then Steve fucking looks at them like this
no IT GOT SO MUCH BETTER TONY’S FACE OH MY GOD

Trying to clean things out before Bronycon!
Helloween- Straight to Hell: I love that these guys are still around and producing new albums every two to three years. Staying active keeps them in shape, and it’s no surprise that they sound as good as they ever have. Despite the excellent opening, this isn’t their best album. The middle drags quite a bit. (Also, “Asshole” is a very “wha?” kind of song.) But if you like metal, power metal, or Helloween in particular, do check it out. 6.5/10
Warpaint- Warpaint: A very odd indie band. Good singer, but the music is overall fairly boring. Kind of a Matt and Kim if they were less focused on melody and strong vocals. 4/10
I Am Kloot- Let It All In: Here’s a group I bet no one’s ever heard of. I only know them by one song, but I’m pleased to see they’re still around. This starts out as very slow, almost loungey indie rock, slowly metamorphosing into cut-rate Decemberists folk rock. That half is somewhat better than the first. Honestly, unless you’re majorly into listening to every random indie group that comes along, you won’t miss much by passing this one over. 5.5/10
Otep- Hydra: Gothic metal band I’ve listened to like once. And it turns out, that one time did not prepare me for the screaming. It’s a shame, because they’ve got some really great atmosphere going on here. Weirdly, there were three tracks in the middle where I was able to skip through each one without the beat changing. I really did not get anything out of this. 4/10
Trapt- Reborn: Hey look, it’s another Trapt album! 5.5/10
Young the Giant- Mind Over Matter: These guys really like long, distorted single-note outros. That’s all the first track is (well, it’s an intro, you know what I mean). This is one of those strange albums that gets better in the middle. I characterize this weird indie rock, but to be perfectly honest, songs like “Crystallized” and “Daydreamer” are going to make sure I keep an eye on this group in the future. 6.5/10
Dum Dum Girls- Too True: Nice dreamy, female-fronted indie rock. They remind me of certain female rock groups from the early 90’s alternative scene, none of which I can bring to mind at the moment for some reason. (All I can think of is L7.) If they had more synths, they’d be CHVRCHES. This is definitely some good stuff, and I’ll keep an eye out for more. 6.5/10
Broken Bells- After the Disco: I can never remember if it’s Broken Bells or School of Seven Bells that I get really excited about. I think it’s the latter; this might actually be one of the groups I was asked to review once upon a time when I did that regularly. “Holding on for Life” has an interesting Beegees vibe. I’d actually like this album more if there were more like that song, but most of it is fairly weak, considering. It’s one of those albums I forget I’ve even listened to by the time I’m done with it. 5/10
Josh Groban- All That Echoes: I didn’t realize this guy was still around. I wasn’t too impressed with his first album, despite the fact that, yeah, he can really sing. Surprisingly, this starts off with a pop song that I’ve actually heard. I hadn’t realized it was his! And it’s very good, another one of those songs that troubled kids need to hear. Of course, his talents are wasted on simple pop songs, but he shines on “She Moved Through the Fair” and the Italian-language songs. But songs like “Below the Line”, while great, would be so much better in someone else’s hands, and leave him more room to do what he does best: operatic songs. 5.5/10
Funeral for a Friend- Conduit: These guys aren’t generally my go-to for post-hardcore, but they have done a couple songs I like and I look forward to their acoustic stuff more than not. This album suffers from Short Song Syndrome, all but two of the 11 tracks being under 3 minutes long. So there’s literally not much going on here. 4.5/10
Zeromancer- Bye-Bye Borderline: It’s always fun to hear something new from this German EDM group. They’re not one you ever hear much about. And, well, that’s probably because they just aren’t as good as your Funker Vogt or what have you. Their sound has softened quite a bit, and even the songs I liked I can’t be terribly excited about. I prefer their earlier work. If you like dark synthwave, go check out Eurotrash instead of this. 5/10
The New Mendicants- Into the Lime: These guys are like the Decemberists with no talent. It’s got a retro-60’s feel to parts of this that quite honestly I can’t stand. The first track isn’t vapid pop, and homaging a time period that more or less originated the concept is sending mixed signals. There wasn’t a song I didn’t skip through at the halfway point. 3/10
