Jessica Williams, doing her best ‘Colbert’ © Joe Gunn 2012
Ok, for real (and I just wrote to her to tell her this), Jessica is the best thing to happen to The Daily Show since Jon Stewart took over as host. I’m not even a little bit kidding. She is by FAR my favorite correspondant, and I think I speak for all of us at Geekquality when I say that we want to see more of her - not just on the Daily Show, but all over the damn place.
So I went to a taqueria place today and the guy we ordered from had these tattoos!! He loves Sailor Moon and told us how excited he was for the new season next summer.
This is, for real, the dopest thing I have ever seen.
Hands down, I quit. He terminado. Done.
thats pretty fucking awesome.
There’s currently a theory that Nicki Minaji is actually Jay-Z sped up and after seeing this video, I totally get behind that theory.
Also, this song is so much better slowed down. Like, rent a convertible and blare this song out the windows.

IT’S TRUE Y’ALL. HERE’S 99 PROBLEMS SPED UP.
Illuminati is the greatest lulz tag ever.
CC: Help me I love this
AWWWWWW SHEEEITTTTTTT <3333
zombie playground, a new game being funded through kickstarter
from the intro paragraph:Zombie Playground is an online, team based, action arena game with RPG elements. Gameplay will be deep, challenging, and rewarding. The game combines childhood nostalgia with horrific monsters, visceral combat, and a unique atmosphere straight out a child’s nightmares. We do want to make it very clear: this is not a game for kids!
this is the game i’ve been waiting my entire life for
“Goonies + Attack the Block + Walking Dead = Zombie Playground”
Wow cool! I’d totally play it.
Maybe take a look at the kickstarter page here
Power to the players and all that
HMMM I’d hesitate to call it Attack the Block simply because AtB had SO MANY POCS IT WAS MARVELOUS and this looks like tokens but with the possibility of customizing til your heart’s content SO ANYWAY I DIGRESS
YES I CAN GET BEHIND THIS.
I AM EXCITE.
LET’S DO THIS I LOVE ZOMBIES >:D
"Keeping things the way they are because that’s just how you’re familiar with them is problematic, due to most everyone in comic fiction being a white, cis-gendered guy. It’s not an overtly racist distinction you’re making, which is why you seem to feel you’ve come to it without prejudicial racial bias (“similar conclusions can be reached by different arguments”), but it actually IS racist by way of exclusion. “Don’t do something directly racist, but also just keep things how they’ve always been” is racist [and heteronormative, and sexist, and cis-sexist, and so on] because “how things have always been” are white, cis-gendered, and male. Therefore, you prefer things to stay white, cis-gendered, and male. The world has changed, but you want these characters to persist as vestiges of an outdated, slanted view of society."

I can’t even lie…I used to watch this anime. She sure did whine alot. But Tuxedo Mask was the man though.
This is why Shyalaman got so much rage and hate for casting caucasian kids.
This is something I keep trying to convey in conversations about representation. If you never see people who look like you achieve anything, then how do you believe in yourself? It’s not just about fiction (though fiction matters so very much), it is also about what history is taught. Erasing the past can only damage the future.
Reblogging because this has been my life and pretty much my big huge secret since forver. And with Korra coming out, having a ~*female, brown, strong, tomboy*~ character gives me an even better feeling about my race and general identity.
*RUGBY TACKLE OF LOVE**HUG*
I don’t want to get all misty eyed but like, there are some people that really don’t get how big a deal seeing someone that looks like you, someone that you can relate to, presented in the media. I feel like I say this all the time, but this is the why the erasure and marginalization and whitewashing of PoCs (and women, not that the two are mutually exclusive obvs) is such a big deal.
Some people don’t seem to understand the impact that seeing yourself -or not seeing yourself- presented in a positive light can have. Media is such a huge agent of socialization; it’s effects are formative, whether or not you’re conscious of it.
It’s presenting the norm -THIS is what a hero looks like- and you pick up pretty damned quickly whether or not you fit that image.
Hugs for everyone, okay?
See the guys in this poster as the “heros” and stars of the film… They attack & rob a woman 8 seconds in to the film. Why the fuck would I or anybody els care for a bunch of criminals to sit though “hooked” and laughing with them to end..? What a shit angle to come at.
Yeah, why would I want to watch a movie about someone other than the run of the mill
(White/middle aged/middle class)hero? That would make them like…an anti hero or some shit!
(refreshing, interesting)B movie premise with A+ carryout?
A sci-fi take on the recently popular horror/comedy mashup genre?
Dude, a film that focuses on a group that mainstream media likes to pretend doesn’t exist, in an atypical setting, let alone storyline?
Giving that main chav/criminal a character arc?
Man. Total let down.
Shit angle indeed, my good sir.
