Once upon a time Matt and Chip made a beautiful cover for the 4th printing of issue #1 of Sex Criminals. This beautiful cover captured the imagination of brimpers everywhere, including myself and my lovely coworker Heather (@girlblunders). The situation has since escalated nicely.
Welcome to Brimpception!
This is beautiful, and I hope that fourth picture becomes a future Sex Criminals cover someday.
My girls!!! My boys!!!

Now is not the time to use that!
urorrur-r-r asked: Re: Guardians of the Galaxy. I can't put my finger on it, but there's something kinda icky about the fact Rihanna's in it, yet painted green. So two POC not playing human POC, I don't know what this counts as, but it feels gross
Yeah it’s very much a false diversity feeling, like, the human characters will all be white, but we cast a Black person as an inhuman alien, so that’s okay, right?
Are yall being sarcastic or do yall actually think all “POC’s” look a like? You guys do realize that’s not Rihanna in the movie right?
That’s Zoe Saldana.
And there is another black person in the movie and he doesn’t even wear any makeup hiding his skin color. His name is Djimon Housou. He was in the first minute of the trailer. I guess ya didn’t see em.
If you were really concerned about the representation of “POC’s” in the media, I would think you would at least have the decency/time to do your research and give credit to the actors/actresses that actually are in the film. How about the both of you shut the fuck up forever cuz ya both reaching mad hard about shit you really don’t care about.
Well now I feel like shit because I have paid literally no attention to the movie itself WRT trailers, ad copy etc.
I mean, I didn’t even realise that Vin Diesel was the tree guy when I was looking at a gif of him doing the mocap for the tree guy.
So yeah, mea culpa, I definitely should have fact checked better.
Needless to say, many Natives are not fans of the trend. But that hasn’t stopped the festival from capitalizing on the “white kids playing Indian” motif and offering tipi rentals for the low weekend price of … $2,200? Paying rent in a New York City rat hole never sounded so good.
"White kids playing Indian"
Coachella, AKA white girls appropriating Native and Indian culture conference.
Lol @ white chicks “apprecating Native American culture.” I bet any of these white chicks can’t tell you which Native American nations use headdresses (which are SACRED and EARNED) and which nations don’t use them.
but fuck around and mock the U.S. military and their ranks/statuses and watch ya ass end up on a terrorist watch list or worst.
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like. He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it: Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.
mmm the host was great i’d love to see this.
Okay this is so weird because I was listening to this and actually I bought a copy of The Sopornos like 10 years ago ex-rental, I had a weird moment.
This #LadyOscar was absolute perfection! ꒰⸝⸝ᵒ̴̶̷᷄ ॢ·̫ ॢᵒ̴̶̷᷅⸝⸝꒱♡°.
