The noble house of Valentine
you forgot one
AFALKSJDF;AKS SKEETER’S LAST NAME WAS VALENTINE?!
Have none of you sons of bitches seen Cowboy Bebop?
(also found a lot of pretty good Faye cosplay upon googling for this image :o)
sometimes I look at my dad’s man boobs and sigh to myself
Except that there are literally zero perks to having man boobs.
If you have interest in creating comics, this book will never be a wasted purchase. Not only does it have pages like this, but it has lots of character, story, and pacing information.
All in all the best buy you could possibly make.
Making Comics by Scott McCloud
Was actually in the middle of readin’ this now. It’s a pretty great book. I also recently picked up Drawing Words and Writing Pictures, which is in the same sort of vein but rather than mostly just discussing theory like Making Comics does, it actually attempts to be kind of a “college course in a book” on the whole comic making process.
Unfortunately it kind of expects you do be working along with the “assignments” which I don’t really have the time, energy or workspace for right now, since I’m moving next week. So in the meantime, Making Comics is serving as just good reading material on the subject (though it does have “activities” as well, it doesn’t really insist that you do them, though I probably will go back to those eventually).
Also, and this maybe goes without saying, but check out Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, his earlier and probably more well known exploration of comics as an artform. It’s a good read whether you’re interested in making comics or just like reading them.
Legend of Zelda heart container soap.
I NEED THIS!!!! asdfghjkl;’
In the interest of being pedantic: That’s a heart piece, not a heart container (four pieces make a container). Also, gimme.
“Johnny and Velma” by doubleleaf
Looks more like Wesker to me.
Russians doing their thing again
> I’m so glad we have Russia.
> This is frickin awesome.
> That’s the best video ever.
> What I want to know is that how they caught those pigeons…
Four pigeon throws and not a single hadouken :(
when the truth comes out…
To be fair, he is wearing a fucking robot suit. That might add a few inches. Now, if someone has a shot of him standing next to her WITHOUT the robot suit on…
god bless this picture
Though I have no memory of some of them, most of them are some of the mostly hilarious programming and balance issues omg.
Ahaha IDK if i ever reblogged this before…
These all sound more like programming glitches and oversights rather than actual problems with the pokemon themselves. These were the first games, probably couldn’t expect perfection with how many they had to program.
Protip: LOTS of older JRPG’s are full of horrendous glitches and bugs and balance oversights, and very few of them are anywhere near as complex as Pokemon… nevermind on the fucking Gameboy. The original Pokemon was also made on a ridiuclously low budget, both for what it was trying to accomplish, and compared to how successful it eventually became.
Also, if it weren’t for the fact that it became one of the most successful game franchises ever and spawned 50 sequels that are basically the same game being remade, nobody would fucking care.
Facedeals: The Facebook camera that can recognise you every time you walk into a shop
>Shoppers could soon be automatically recognized when they walk into a shop using a controversial new camera.
>Called Facedeals, the camera uses photos uploaded to Facebook to recognize people as they walk in.
>Shoppers who agree to use the system, which has not been developed with Facebook, will be offered special deals.
>’Facebook check-ins are a powerful mechanism for businesses to deliver discounts to loyal customers, yet few businesses—and fewer customers—have realized it,’ said Nashville-based advertising agency Redpepper.
>Facebook recently hit the headlines when it bought face.com, an Israeli firm that pioneered the use of face recognition technology online.
>The social networking giant uses the software to recognise people in uploaded pictures, allowing it to accurately spot friends.
It’s a good thing I don’t use facebook (:
this is fucking scary crazy
jesus fucking christ I
kind of wish there were laws against this kind of thing
because this is all kinds of creepy privacy invasion
This is every single level of creepy and invasion of privacy-y.
Do people not realise that Facebook is an entirely voluntary service? You don’t HAVE to use it; and if you do use it, you don’t HAVE to post pictures of yourself on it. They are not violating your privacy, you are violating your own privacy by opting into using their service and then giving them photos of yourself.
Someone could probably respond, “But everyone uses Facebook! How could I not use it and cut myself off from all my friends and family?” Welp, that kind of mentality is what has led Facebook to having its current monopoly on social networking.
I’m not saying that I think Facebook SHOULD be doing this, or that we shouldn’t expect better from the internet services we use regularly (even if they are free), but I will say that this kind of thing should not come as a surprise. People put way too much trust into things on the internet: trust that they won’t do anything bad with the information we give them, because most of the time they don’t. But they could, and often times their TOS specifically state that at the end of the day they can do whatever the fuck they like with anything you put on their site.
Hillariously enough, it was just last week there was an article on this same site (Daily Mail, that is) about how certain employers and psychologists feel like people who DON’T use Facebook should be considered “suspicious”, because it seems like they’re trying to hide something.
Is it weird that I think a genderswapped Panty would be gay? A Panty that does not like dick doesn’t seem right, so he would have to be gay. Stocking on the other hand… I think a male Stocking would just eat nothing but steaks and burgers, you know, stereotypical “MAN FOOD”.
Now I’m also imagining a female Garterbelt… that’d actually be kind of awesome/hot.
Everything is sailormoon,

oh my god
Dat crotch. I guess Asami gets to be Venus, Mako Mars, Bolin Jupiter, Pema Artemis, and Lin is Tuxedo Mask. I can’t think of anyone to be Mercury…oh wait. Tahno. Definitely Tahno. Meelo would be Chibiusa.
…heh, LinXKorra is a funny ship.
I think Amon would make a better Tuxedo Mask, for obvious reasons.
That’s because the drugs are for your Pokémon!
Now I’m imagining the dealer kids in The Wire yelling, “Rare Candy, got that RARE CANDY!”
“I lived without out a computer and cell phone when I was your age.”
yeah well YOUR parents lived without a microwave and the polio vaccine but I don’t see you giving that up
“Why, when I was your age we didn’t have FIRE or WHEELS. Fucking kids today with their TECHNOLOGY!”
