Man, you guys. Too bad Notre Dame isn’t an actual cathedral that actually exists in Paris.

okay so alan tudyk is at new orleans comic con
and someone asked him one of his favorite memories from filming firefly and he told the best story from filming “objects in space”
so basically since wash and zoe and most of the crew are locked in their rooms for the episode, all alan had to do was lay in bed for filming
so he got there early so he could sleep on set and he was about to fall asleep when gina came in and went “damn it. looks like we had the same idea. okay, scoot over.” and they napped together
how fucking cute is that
This whole notion of doing only work that you love has always affronted me but I’ve lacked the articulation to be able to explain my objections. Only the top levels of developed world society can really consider that as an option. Almost all of the world has to labor just to survive. It just has always seemed so snobbish to me to think that people should all aspire to having only rewarding work to do to support themselves.
I believe in the reward of doing honest work in an honest way—that’s satisfying to me, even if I can’t always say I enjoy it. My work is not significant or important on a global scale, and I know it. But I do it pretty well.
I’ve probably told you the story of my wonderful professor, Russ Kelly, in my first year of college. One day he brought in a newspaper article about the wage increase for garbage workers in San Francisco that had recently passed. He pointed out that someday, even if we did well in college, that we may end up doing something like that because it paid well and we needed the money. But he said that a liberal education is for the enrichment of your heart and your brain, and it’s meant to give you something to think about, and a way to think about it, for the rest of your life. And he said that if someday you work as a garbage collector, you can enjoy thinking about Plato.
That’s the kind of advice that was actually helpful." - My mom (who is clearly the best) in an email this morning. <3 (via appolsaucy)
more SHIELD fanart… I just love these two, okay.
(I wanted to fix a few minor details but I seem to have deleted the master files of all my character sketches. :/ )
as a serial killer my name would be the suspense so my victims would be like “oh no, the suspense is killing me” and we would both laugh right before i killed them

This made me laugh WAY more than is reasonable.
Every damn year.

So what you’re trying to say is that
womenpeople prefer well-drawn pictures of their favorite superheroes over really shitty indie comics about boobs?
Are we supposed to feel sorry for the person whose humor comic featuring a disembodied pair of breasts on the cover is getting passed over?
this feels like it should be a parody but it isnt and that’s hilarious
maybe try not being sexist unfunny douchelords next time
HEY, WE DO A HUMOR COMIC ABOUT [SOMETHING THAT LOOKS EXTREMELY SEXIST] HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING
No, no way is this a serious complaint (I said to myself). No one’s that un-self aware. This has got to be a parody about gross “indie” comics skeeving up the con atmosphere, and the schadenfreude we’re totally intended to feel at their failure.
So I went to the OP’s tumblr to check context and.
This was just supposed to be a comic about how hard it can be for the unknowns to find their audience. Anything else you see is your own interpretation of the page.
They are serious.
That is more hilarious than any punchline actually in the comic. I’m honestly crying with laughter right now.
wow cry me a THOUSAND tears about how hard it is for white men to get into the comics industry by drawing tits
I can think of very few female comic readers who wouldn’t choose the Green Lantern image over a comic with nothing but boobs on the cover :P If the OP wants female fans as their target audience, they need to make some changes or expect not to get any of their money.
Oh god… he edited the original post to “Apologies to anyone offended by the cover.” … Not “Apologies, I made a really gross and alienating statement.” He does this in another post, as well trying to justify it all. /facedesk
Wow, this is a perfect example of the creative blind spots I’ve been talking about. This comic was not intended to be satire. The OP completely missed the significance of having just a pair of boobs on a magazine cover and its effect on a female audience. In the OP’s own words:
“In the original script I said there was a comic being held up without specifying what was on it, so Paul just drew a pair of breasts and I put the page up because at the time I saw nothing wrong with it, and when I put it on tumblr, the unfortunate implications never crossed my mind until they were pointed out to me.”
There was no sexist intent behind this comic (or clever expose of sexism), but this clearly illustrates how so much offensive content gets released in comics, games, and other media. It looks okay to the people making it.
This is why we need women, PoC, and LGBT people in industries that are dominated by one POV. We need to start viewing content through more than one lens.
I talk about it at length HERE.
