Done and done.

(Not pictured: “Butt window”, but trust me, it’s there.)

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?


Felt a dire need to contribute to the hilarity.

Now I can tell right away he’s a strong male character. Whew! No more confusion.

Yes please, explain to me again how this has nothing to do with sexism.

From comic to concept art to film.

I was looking at Cap in the gif, comparing how much of him ended up in the shot versus the comic/concept art, and then I noticed the expression on his face. ‘That’s weird,’ I thought. ‘He looks like he’s laughing. ‘Was this a bad take and no one noticed because he’s so far in the corner?’ I watched it repeat several times, baffled by the scrunch of his eyes and the way his cheeks dimpled like he was smiling just out of frame. Then I zoomed in and realized, oh. He’s not laughing, he’s crying.

30 days of TAH

Tell us how you got into The Thrilling Adventure Hour! How did you hear about it, and what made you decide to listen?  What were your first impressions of the show and when did it really stick for you? Did you listen straight through the first time, or did you pick a particular segment and finish it before going back and listening to more? Any final thoughts on your first impressions of the show?

I first heard about TAH last November, I believe, when maratini reblogged this post all about why I should listen to it. I read through the post, and then again later, and thought, ‘Wow, why am I not already listening to this? This sounds like my jam.’ I spend a lot of time in my car commuting so I thought it’d be perfect to fill that time. I went into the rss feed and manually picked out maybe the first twenty episodes and put them on my phone. I was ready!

I didn’t like the first episode of Sparks Nevada AT ALL. I could barely understand this weird guy with a gravely voice, and why was he deadpanning everything, he was ruining all the jokes, it just wasn’t funny. I was baffled. I enjoyed Beyond Belief, I really enjoyed Jefferson Reid, and I thought Black Lagoon was interesting. But Sparks Nevada? Ugh. The dumbest.

While I was driving to school and listening to The Agony of the Feet (so dumb), my radiator cracked in half and my car overheated and I broke down on the off-ramp as I was getting off the highway. I guess I took that as a sign that I should stop listening. So I did.

Fast-forward two+ months to late January of this year! I had to go to Hyannis for a thing. It’s a two-hour drive. I listened to music on my phone on the way down. On the way back, I ran out of music I wanted to listen to and I thought, hey, I still have all this TAH on my phone, why not give it another try. I must have skipped a few - I was probably focusing on Sparks Nevada and Beyond Belief - but I remember getting to Blast From the Past and actually tearing up a little over that dang bucket’a bolts and having this slow realization of, ‘Wait… I really, really like this.’

Then I spent the next, oh, three or four straight days listening to all of Sparks Nevada. I got it now. I got the humor. I got the deadpan. (The audio quality gradually increased and I could finally understand Marc Evan Jackson). I was hooked. I accidentally spoiled myself for some things (Red Alert) by checking out the wiki too enthusiastically, but not for everything (Into Darkness, oh my god). (And I knew about Jib Janeen in advance but nothing could have prepared me for him.)

After I was done with Sparks Nevada I went back and listened to everything else at a more sedate pace. And I loved it all (particularly Tick-Tock and Laserbeam) but nothing grabbed me quite like Sparks Nevada.

That bleep is driving me crazy.



I’m in the middle of re-listening to all of TAH in advance of the NY live show and I came to episode #94: Behind the scenes at TAH. Does anybody know (or would you like to speculate) what word they bleeped out at 27:32 for fear of spoilers? Surely they’ve past the point in the series that it would’ve spoiled. Any guesses? I realize this is such a tiny little insignificant thing but not knowing has been driving me up the wall. 

I do love the Hal “WHA-OH” sound bite though. I’ve dubbed it the Lubleep.

I’m pretty sure Mark is referring to what happens at the end of episode #95, Red Alert.

Specifically… (Huge spoiler under the cut for Red Alert.)

They mention after the bleep that they haven’t recorded the episode he was spoiling yet. I was guessing that the behind the scenes ep was recorded sometime in October ‘12, since it starts out with info about the kickstarter, but it just occurred to me that it was recorded separately, so they weren’t necessarily done at the same time. So if the bts ep was before June ‘12… then yeah. If it was after… probably Into Darkness/Station Break/etc. WILL WE EVER KNOW FOR SURE no yeah it was probably Red Alert.

(eta: now I’m just listening to the episode through and Marc references “dramatic things you’re not going to mention”, and Red Alert is certainly dramatic.



The last few weeks in videogame culture have seen a level of combativeness more marked and bitter than any beforehand.

First, a developer—a woman who makes games who has had so much piled on to her that I don’t want to perpetuate things by naming her—was the target of a harassment campaign that…

This is really strong.

Since tumblr seems so trigger-warning-happy, what do you suppose the chances are of getting people to tag for… mortality?

and i especially love the idea of his fakey bruce wayne-y acting he has a watch collection he has a wing of japanese art at the Met named after him and he stumbles around at the gala opening smiling benignly and asking people to explain things and then mispronouncing them and acting all embarrassed and being photographed rollerskating (badly) next to a model in the jogging lane of gotham central park and his cars are brightly coloured and difficult to insure and how he’s at a bar and the news flicks over to a story of a breakout at Arkham and he gets all still and whoever’s at his elbow is like ‘hey bruce - what’s with you?’ and idris!bruce just says ‘i have that same shirt as the news anchor - does mine look that bad?? you’d tell me right?’ (all tags from harrietvane)

i’m so writing this as a fanfic…


a few people have asked me to elaborate on my tweet about how “jessica raine as verity lambert” should be the doctor’s next companion…

OK… here’s my pitch… as a child growing up in canada, sydney newman spent a lot of time traveling through space and time in the company of a man he believed at the time was his grandfather.


upon his return — following the unexplained disappearance of his grandfather — newman’s parents quickly convinced him that his adventures were simply his dreamlike embellishment of a series of travels taken to historical landmarks…


newman was so taken by the man he believed was his grandfather that, upon becoming the head of drama for the BBC, he pitched a series based on his memories of childhood adventure. this pitch eventually became “doctor who”…


…and when a man showed up at the BBC… in a blue box, claiming to be newman’s grandfather but looking nothing like the doddering, white-haired man described by newman, no one believed him…


…no one, that is, other than a very talented young woman looking to break free from the patriarchal order around her and find new worlds of adventure…

Reblog if you’re a girl and you DON’T shave your arm hair (not armpit hair)








It’s for a project. I want to see how many girls don’t do this.

Why should girls even shave their arm hair?

I’d understand the armpit cause sometimes it feels icky but the arm? like, what?

who the FUCK shaves their arm

I know exactly 0 people who shave their arms

I don’t because i have very fine and light hair, but i knew girls in high school that did because it was very visible and they felt self-conscious about it.

exactly that, it’s a thing i know of young girls doing who are still very embarrassed by puberty and existence in general. i don’t know of any adults who do it though.

YEAH YOU DO sort of, I do it rarely, like… once a year. I did it for my brother’s wedding. That sort of situation. I’ve got very Irish, very pale skin and I feel like my hair shows up way too dark against it. But usually I don’t bother shaving anything because I’m lazy so I guess it evens out.
