if you ever unironically talked about “white pride”
this is you
My favorite thing about white pride shit is that everyone who talks about it is a fucking fedora-wearing fat dude with neck scruff and a bad shirt
How unaware of one’s self can you be to fucking look at this train wreck in the mirror every day and go “yeah clearly this is the pinnacle of the phenotypes”
I’m so so bored of predictable, tame uninspiring Oscars hosts. Who are we gonna get next year? Another turn for Ellen, Billy Crystal, Whoopi? Yawny McYawnington. Why have one host when you could have ALL OF THE MUPPETS?
Do I even gots to ‘splain to you why this is a good idea, ok?
STATLER & WALDORF SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE TAKING THE PISS OUT OF EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING GOING WRONG BACKSTAGE
And before you say that it would’t be possible The Muppets have peformed live shows before.
They’re the perfect halfway house between something ‘edgy’ like Seth McFarlane and something as beige as Billy Crystal. Nostalgic, hilarious and fun. There’s already a facebook page for it which started when Eddie Murphy quit as host in 2012 that has about 30k likes - https://www.facebook.com/MuppetOscars
Let’s make this happen folks.
This only has 109 notes. WTF people, get on it!
I once received a DVD of this anime from a bargain bin at a convention, and I’m glad I picked it out, because it’s a hell of a lot more entertaining than most anime I’ve seen and you’re gonna find out why. (Graphic sexual content… if you want to call it that)
The series is only a few episodes long, adapted from a much longer manga, and yes, all of the monsters are as ridiculously horrifying as they are horrifyingly ridiculous.
So the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer was sweet. We all love Rocket Raccoon. He’s a raccoon that shoots a gun, after all! Who could say no to that?
But he didn’t spring, fully formed, from the ether, despite what people may think happens with artwork on Tumblr. He was created by a legendarily prolific Marvel Comics creator, and the story of Bill Mantlo does not have a happy ending.
Until his regression in Georgia, there was hope that with enough rehabilitation, Bill might one day return to his home, living with assistance but actually having something approaching a normal life. Now, that seems impossible.
“At this stage, there really isn’t much that he gets out of life,” Mike says. “He doesn’t like to eat. He doesn’t like to listen to music. He doesn’t like to watch TV. He doesn’t like to read. He doesn’t want to do anything. It’s very difficult.”
If a way could be found to get Bill in front of a computer, perhaps with dictation software, Mike feels that Bill could probably write a story. But that depends entirely on whether Bill could maintain his concentration long enough to form a creative thought. These days, it does not happen often.
Mike does not have a large collection of Bill’s writing. But he does have a printout of the computer journal Bill kept while he was at Meadowbrook. Many of the entries contain loose details that appear to be connected to his Martian invasion story. But there are personal notes interspersed that reflect Bill’s own anguish, and his resistance to the very treatments that were slowly returning him to normal.
“My name is Bill Mantlo,” he writes in his last personal entry. “I want to go home.”
At they say, read the whole thing.
Bill Mantlo is in hospice care and his family approaches destitution due in part to the flamboyant failures of the American health care system, but frankly, the fact that he doesn’t see much in the way of royalties for his work cannot possibly be helping. Marvel is about to release a movie that will probably pull in half a billion dollars at the minimum, and Mantlo’s family won’t see anything from it.
If comics taught me anything, it taught me that that isn’t right.
So I urge people who are looking forward to that movie to donate what you can, when you can, to the Hero Initiative - a charity dedicated to being the safety net that too many comics creators lack - and specifically to Bill Mantlo’s care. When Guardians of the Galaxy comes out, I’ll see it, but to do so in good conscience I’ll donate an amount equal to the cost of my ticket to the Hero Initiative. I did this last year with Man of Steel and the year before with Avengers.
It’s only right.
I STILL CANT BELIEVE THE LONGEST PIECE OF LITERATURE EVER IS A SUPER SMASH BROS BRAWL FANFICTION
it’s longer than war and peace and les mis combined, plus two pride and prejudices.
it trumps the world record for longest piece of literature by over two million words.
But the real question is: Is it any good?
The official homepage of Christopher Howard Wolf.
But, on a less depressing slimebeast note, here’s a series of four articles written by him on how to write better!
This includes tips on fixing errors in your dialogue, tips on stealing ideas from yourself, and two different types of story-building approach inspired by Pixar and James Cameron! It’s really good advice, and the articles are a really fun read, so I highly recommend you check ‘em out!
