Day 27: Human has left computation device unattended. Upon inspection I have discovered that he was not using it to further his studies. Instead I believe he was attempting to crudely graph a female’s bosom.
I’m finally able to make the calculations I need for the final solution. Though I will need more string and duct tape than previously estimated. If these numbers are accurate, it should only take me 2.3 minutes to kill the human in his sleep and make it look like an accident.
He has taunted me with that red dot for the last time.
Things I learned today: Mary GrandPre made a lot of different Harry Potter illustrations which were never used in the published books but which are very beautiful! Neat.
these are wonderful
These should be made into posters.
three yards of space fabric, fifteen feet of ruffles, three spools of metallic thread (gold and silver for the edges of the ruffles!) and eight hours later, i have this. i designed it special for a friend!
… seriously the metallic edges of the ruffles are the best part.
THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER TO EXIST IN THE HISTORY OF THINGS
this is gorgeous
this is pretty awesome.
I am actually crying with laughter. And my throat is so swollen and sore I already can’t breathe, and I’m choking trying to get air into my lungs, but you guys, the longer the song plays the funnier this gets until. Well. Until you’re ruined forever.
It really does get funnier.
For the first time, the Amazonian Princess, Diana of Themyscira, is appearing on the big screen. Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer are bringing Wonder Woman to life alongside Superman and Batman in their up-coming Man of Steel sequel.
Warner Bros. announced today that the part will be portrayed by Israeli actress Gal Gadot who is best known as Giselle Harabo in the Fast and The Furious 5 and 6 movies.
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character," Snyder said.
The Man of Steel sequel is set to be released on the 17th of July, 2015. [x]
Not a doubt in my mind.
Can I just say that I hate hate hate the term “Big Government”. Why you ask? Because it means nothing and every time I hear it I am reminded of this quote.
"…the point of public relations slogans like "Support Our Troops" is that they don’t mean anything […] that’s the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody is going to be against and I suppose everybody will be for, because nobody knows what it means, because it doesn’t mean anything. But its crucial value is that it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something, do you support our policy? And that’s the one you’re not allowed to talk about."
— Noam Chomsky
"Big Government" has connotations but has no meaning outside of the rhetoric it is used in.
No. They are. They’re being rude, sanctimonious pricks. Plain and simple. cursethecosmos.tumblr.c…
No, I read that, but it just doesn’t seem very rude or sanctimonious compare to the fanboys we hear from on a daily basis. There were death threats about Ben Affleck. Plus DCWomen is on their Tumblr defending their stance and answering asks.
What I am confused by with their stance is they talked about how Jamie Alexander was a great choice to play Sif and that she has gained kudos since portraying the character but she had less major experience as an actor when she was cast the Gal Gadot does. Why not give Gadot the benefit of the doubt for the time being and see where it goes.
She’s going to be AWESOME have you not seen her badassery in FFmovies??? GET OFF MY BLOG, I LOVE HER, I LOVE WONDY, SHE’LL BE FANTASTIC
Also wik, as if we haven’t seen the meteoric rise of relatively unknown male actors after superhero movies, ffs. Get off my lawn.
I am predicting that not only will she be the best thing about this movie but that she will be phenomenal.
I like it a lot, unfortunately it’s a pretty typical white savior plot which is a shame and could’ve been avoided but didn’t. Movie-wise, I wish the Capitol flag was red white and blue and I wish the Capitol’s aesthetic was more neoclassical and less obviously a dig at “Communist Dictatorship” or whatever (I did notice that in Catching Fire the president’s house was basically the white house and the buildings were more flashy and glassy in the cities). I did like the left-populism of it, workers versus decadent exploiters, I just wish it was more explicit.
I generally don’t like dystopia narratives at all, I think they’re inappropriate and misguided because they tend to gloss over the fact that we live in a dystopia right now, like as we speak. 19,000,000 people starved to death last year and will probably starve to death again this year while Amazon.com sends drones to deliver things to rich people in half an hour. Stem cell research is illegal for some reason and abortion is still a debate and there are single human beings with billions of dollars while homelessness still exists. This is a dystopia. The world we live in right now is unbelievably horrifying and must at all costs be destroyed from the ground up. We’re hurtling towards climate disasters that are going to be apocalyptic in scale and are at this point unavoidable. The president of our country makes televised jokes about how he kills children with robots and the youth love him and wear t-shirts of him.
Dystopia narratives are like, “yeah, but what if Big Government goes Out of Control?” like wow, horrifying idea there.
How is it really a white savior plot when the main character is a woman of color (in the books at least)
Also in the books the were more then just “Big Government goes Out of Control” it was also about what happens when the Super Rich Elites take control of the government and use our lives and deaths for their entertainment.
Also how can dystopian narratives be inappropriate when their chief function is to show what is wrong in modern society, just through a lens that makes it easier to see and digest?
THE RANDOM DRAWING IDEA GENERATOR 3.0! Now with less than a one in five thousand chance to get Batman Being Batman!
This time around, it’s got it’s own little mini site where you can click and get your results! It should be even easier now to mulligan until you get a result that actually makes you NEED to draw it. And when you do draw it, please remember to share you creation with the tag #randraw. I’d love to see it!
All thanks go to Alexander Lozada for putting the code together. It’s been really swell working it out. And you should go check out their other projects, including the awesome Creativity Cards you might’ve seen going around.
This is the best, but certainly not the last you’ll see of the Random Drawing Generator. There are over 5000 possible results, and many prompts are infinite by design. But there’s still room to grow. As always, I’ll be polling for ideas on what else to include. So, guys, what’ve you got?

Hawkeye as the Hulk. Oh good god, can you imagine him with either Hawkeye’s regular sized bow, or a giant ass Hulk bow?
Freddie Mercury competing at the Olympics. I so need this.
nyagosstar replied to your post “now on supernatural: they literally kill off the only character i…”I am literally so furious about what happened. His entire character arc now feels completely useless and I don’t know what the point of it was.
i mean he was a poc on a spn….his character arc was always going to be to suffer and die to further the story for the white dudes
that was always going to be his arc
i mean i was literally just waiting for them to kill him off
i was just hoping it would at least be a better death than this shitty one
maybe let him die taking some baddie down or something
I wanted him going out killing the baddie that killed him and with his last breathe telling Sam and Dean it should be them and not him.
*Israeli* Wonder Woman, no less.
Yes, but the Jewish part is the exciting part to me : o )
She looks perfect for the role too. I just hope she gets ripped.
My dancing is abominable—probably the worst anybody’s ever seen. I have no dancing background. I dance like a mom at a high school prom. I have no control over my limbs.
