Game of Thrones S03: My Understanding so Far
PRETTY FUCKING MUCH
Meet Major Tim Peake. He’ll become the first British astronaut to travel to the International Space Station when he blasts off toward the ISS in November 2015. He’s also the UK’s first astronaut in 20 years.
His years-from-now David Bowie cover is a much more obvious selection than Canadian Chris Hadfield, but he’ll still have some pretty big social media space boots to fill.
(As a non-American, he will also, we hope, be spared the bureaucratic mess that the Washington Post alleges would keep America from having its own Chris Hadfield.)
Advantage: UK, for finally getting on board with this whole space thing. (Who are we kidding? The actual advantage here still goes to Canada, but that’s not what this site’s about.)

Fascinating Washington Post article.

Expecto PatroNUMB from working these soulless jobs.
You didn’t think too deeply about this did you? Of course not. If you were prone to thinking deeply about things… you probably wouldn’t be a Feminist, now would you?
I’m screaming “THAT’S THE POINT THAT’S LITERALLY THE POINT YOU JUST MADE THE EXACT POINT” at my computer screen right now.

Everyone on my Tumblr dash, PLEASE watch this. Especially if you are a creative artist:
Adobe is going to scrap their hard copies (disks) for their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash), and have you pay a subscription for the latest software called the Adobe Creative Cloud. $50 per month. Could you really afford such an expense in the long run?
This is really disturbing. Please hear what he has to say, it really is a serious situation for working artists. Pass this along so others may know about the Adobe Creative Cloud and how horrible it is.
Yep… Just went to see how much Flash costs. You know, to just buy the program? Guess what? After spending a while looking, it appears that you CAN’T anymore. You have to pay an outrageous subscription fee. I hate adobe. Is there a petition going around to stop this nonsense? Because I want to sign it.
Thanks! I know a lot of artists and people who like art follow me. You guys should go sign that.
Today I just signed the petition in the voice against the Adobe Creative Cloud. For those who are not familiar with what the new Creative Cloud can do to you as an artist, I really suggest you watch this video.
For those who have seen, reblogged, faved, here’s the link (as shown in the previous reblog) to sign the petition. Anything can happen, Adobe really needs to know that many artists are not supportive of them controlling not just the software..but the content worked on the Cloud.
Signed! Boosting the signal, I prefer to be able to buy my software.
I’m not going to fucking SUBSCRIBE to Photoshop. What the fuck do you expect me to tell people, “sorry, can’t do your commission this month. Couldn’t afford the Photoshop rent”?
This is why I use Corel Painter :|b So few people seem to and I don’t understand why. It’s so much cheaper, super versatile, and doesn’t have this bullshit surrounding it :/
we need some brilliant programmers out there to write something better than photoshop, maybe something versatile and open source? i’d crowdfund that.
Basically my reaction to the new film in a nutshell.
In fact. their first kick at the franchise was such a smash — convincing not only fans but also bringing in a much larger audience of casual viewers — that John Cho admitted that the pressure going into sequel Star Trek Into Darkness (now playing) was, if anything, greater.
“On the other hand,” he added, “I’m not J.J. Abrams, who’s ultimately responsible. I’m just his Asian puppet. Which, by the way, is also the title of my autobiography.”
John Cho is not fucking around. I’m in love.
How far the show went out of its way to make it clear that Holmes wasn’t sexually pressuring Irene. He offered her his “bet,” and I can imagine a zillion other shows that just would have left it there as a sexy “edgy” flirtation, but no - Holmes stopped himself in the middle of the flirt to make it clear that he was not conditioning his silence about her thefts on her going on a date with him.
Similarly, when he came to see her after she refused to go out with him again, obviously someone somewhere was afraid he’d look like a stalker, and so he began his speech by making it very clear that he understood it was her right to refuse him - I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a show actually spell that out in words before, because we’re all supposed to understand that the romantic couple is meant to be and therefore all’s fair, etc etc.

Martin’s still annoyed he wasn’t cast in any of the Harry Potter movies.
