During the packed panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the Saga writer noted that while today, Joss Whedon and George R.R. Martin are considered cultural monsters for killing off beloved characters, death used to be a more common feature of popular fiction. One problem, he believes, is that too many characters live in the hands of corporations and are therefore considered too precious to kill. Vaughn feels that takes away one of the things that makes fiction so valuable.

Brian K. Vaughn And Fiona Staples Reveal What’s Ahead For Saga (via wilwheaton)

Perhaps. I can’t speak to Whedon; he’s never killed off a character I’ve loved, save Phil Coulson, and, well, look how that turned out. But Martin seems to take a perverse glee in sticking it to his fans. I won’t debate his merits or lack thereof as a writer, that’s for others who care more about his work than I do; but a writer who crafts his work to goose his fans seems to me to be missing a fundamental point — just tell the best damn story you can and don’t worry about what the fans think or how they will react. If you do a good job the work will find an audience. I know that’s hopelessly archaic thinking in our world of instant feedback.

Close-Ups on Detail of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

It could have been worse; at least they’re not actual high heels. The boobplate and lack of shoulder straps will continue to bug me no end however.

I don’t remember Wonder Woman wearing an entirely shit-brown costume. :P

Though I’m not impressed, the expectations for this were so high I’m not sure how they could have pleased more than a handful of people.

Twenty-five years and three days later, reality takes a tip from fiction and charts “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun at number one, with over 100,000 sales during it’s first week. In his 31 year long career, with 14 studio albums to his name, this is the first time he’s hit the top- and the first comedy album by ANY artist to hit #1 since 1960! Congratulations, Al! image

We do not yet live in a fallen world.

Maybe our culture isn’t damned…

One of the worst movies you’ve never seen… and yet there is a certain charm to it.

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

So true… #education

Proud to have Warren representing my state.

Last season I thought Defiance was okay, worth continuing to watch, but not great. This season, however, they seem to have unlocked whatever it is that makes this show really tick. Markedly improved, and someone remembered Julie Benz can act rather than just look good. But all of the actors have been giving better performances.

Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
SCIENCE.


…….Close enough

The difference between Science and Engineering.

Brilliant

Republicans are scary but republicans under the age of 20 are even scarier

Yeah liberals are terrified of educated youth

did your dad tell you that

fox news says he’s not brainwashed so it must be true

I don’t see much difference between Young Republicans and Hitler Youth.

I love that last line.
