Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I loved Marvel comics when I was a kid; I was a weird kid who didn’t get down with macho stuff, in part because of the general scene in my house & in part because I was scrawny and couldn’t really front like I was tough. In my tiny limited-to-my-personal-friends-and-surroundings comics scene, the idea that macho norm-enforcer types could be into comics would have come as a huge and deeply disappointing surprise; comics, in my mind, were for people who’d already begun to sense that, in the immortal words of Anti-Flag, “their system doesn’t work for you.”
I hope Marvel systematically “ruins” absolutely every one of their legacy characters forever, one after another, and then D.C. runs a Sgt. Rock miniseries where he renounces violence as a means of conflict resolution. May the grousing of the macho comics dudes ascend to Heaven forever and make an acceptable sacrifice unto Galactus


I like how his argument is that Nazi’s are evil for wanting to create the master race, so we made what the Nazi’s were trying to make, but like in this case it’s not evil cuz… America?

Azuma Makoto sends flowers to space in his latest installation piece, Exobiotanica.

My eyes just got big and watery. I would love a print of that second photo.

Firefighters, right now, are protecting Leavenworth, WA. They are posted every 100 yards looking for hot spots that jump the river.

This is a climbing hot spot, no pun intended. Been meaning to make it out there, but… maybe not for a little bit longer.

unexplained-events:

In Seattle, Washington, an aged and allegedly “haunted” coke machine has been in the same spot for over fifteen years, but despite its outward appearance the machine is fully functional. In fact, the machine has always worked. Some of the drinks it dispenses are normal Coke products, but some are products that are no longer on the market and don’t exist any more. Some of the buttons are labeled as a “mystery” and give a random product when pushed. The business closest to it, a locksmith, state that they have never witnessed anyone restocking the machine at any time, No one ever has, and the mystery of it has attracted tons of people to test out the machine for themselves. It’s also pretty interesting to note that the prices for the sodas have risen over time, recently being from 55 cents to 75. I guess ghost machines have to pay the bills somehow.

Gotta find this.

A synopsis of Tommy Wiseau’s sitcom The Neighbors.

“The demographic is all inclusive.” Of course it is.
We get this all the time when we’re updating parts of our sites and we sit down the content owners and we ask them who their primary audience is. Is it prospective students? Is it current students? Is it faculty and staff, or just faculty? Or is it for parents instead?
“Our primary audience is literally everybody.” —Literally everybody
