Brian why does it seem that there is such hostility towards woman creators in the comic industry?

by brianbendis
THANKGODYOUREHERE

i love this man

Because no matter what we do there will always be unevolved cowards among us. and the anonymity of the Internet brings out some people’s worst instincts.

  please read my words carefully… I said some people. and its only some people. but those people seem really awful.

 truthfully, it is not just female creators. a lot of people take weird, hateful shit from weird people.  truthfully, honestly, a lot of us get showered with lovely thoughts all day as well but the sickening stuff stands out because… it just does.

but I think that all of us would hope that we would have gotten to a place as a society where our mothers, sisters, daughters and wives could go on the Internet without having to worry about being called a whore for having an opinion.

 I think what rattles most of us in the comic book community is the fact that someone could read a bunch of comic books, with very specific, simple moral themes with highly moral characters, fighting the fight for good, and COMPLETELY MISS THE POINT.

 you know what Capt. America would never do? he would never go on the Internet anonymously and slam anyone.

the point of the stories, the good ones :-), is to show us what we could be. not to waddle around in the minutia of comic book science but to enjoy a world were someone is fighting the good fight.  a world we hope we could live in one day.

 just because you are posting anonymously doesn’t mean that those thoughts are not yours.  it is not role-play, it is not a character, that is who you really are.  that is the energy you are putting out in the world. this isn’t some mask you are hiding behind… this is who you REALLY ARE.

and if who you really are is a bully, anonymous or not, I truly feel bad for you. I really do. I feel bad that you’re hurting so badly that you think you need to do this.  

but there is NO excuse to attempt to punish others under the cloak of anonymous. none.

I don’t usually show posters with nudity, but this one is pretty abstract, so it shouldn’t offend anyone. Leslie Herman’s new poster for The Orwells is an 18″ x 24″ screenprint for only $20. Visit his shop.

The “Wisdom” Of Jenny McCarthy Is Spreading: Kristin Cavallari And Jay Cutler Won’t Vaccinate Their Kids

by Michael K

kristincavallarijaycutlervaccines

For those of you parents out there who haven’t made a decision on whether or not to vaccinate your kids, because you’ve been waiting to hear what that trick from The Hills whose last name sounds like an appetizer on the Red Lobster menu has to say about it, you don’t have to wait any longer. She’s finally spoken! Kristin Calamari was on Fox Business’ The Independents to pimp out her style show for E! and her shoe line for Chinese Laundry and the subject of vaccinations came up, because the subject of vaccinations always comes up when a trick is talking about her style show and shoe line. The host of The Independents, Kennedy (yes, that Kennedy), brought up vaccines and Kristin let it be known that the son she has now and the son she’s pregnant with will never be vaccinated. Kristin doesn’t want them to get autism and when Kennedy let her know that there’s no link between autism and vaccines, she said that she read a lot of books and saw it on Homeland or something. Basically, Kristin Cavallari knows stuff! I mean, who cares that polio and the measles are making a comeback?!

Kennedy: Are you opposed to vaccines?

Kristin: We don’t vaccinate.

Kennedy: Really? You’re one of those (Ed note: I’m not sure what the hell Kennedy says here, but I think she says “communists“)?

Kristin: I’ve read too many books about autism and the studies.

Kennedy: No, no, there’s no links. Read the links that say autism and vaccines have no-

Kristin: Well, there is a pediatric group called Homestead, Homestead or Homefirst, now I have pregnancy brain I got them confused—they’ve never vaccinated any of their children, and they haven’t had one case of autism. And now one in 88 boys is autistic, which is a really scary statistic.

Kennedy: Well, my mom vaccinated us and she doesn’t have any cases of autism either. Isn’t that weird?

Kristin: The vaccinations have changed over the years, there’s more mercury and other…

Kennedy didn’t ask what Jay Cutler’s thoughts on vaccines are, but I’m sure if you asked him, he’d stare at you blankly for a full 15 seconds and after a stream of drool dribbled out of the corner of his mouth, his brain would turn back on again and he’d ask you to pull his finger.

And yeah, by “read too many books,” Kristin means that she read one of Jenny McCarthy’s statuses on Facebook or some shit.

John McAfee: This is how I work

THANKGODYOUREHERE

is this real? also, why is waferbaby something i know?

The Setup interviewt Menschen zu ihren Tools und Arbeitsplätzen. Then this happened (and yeah, it’s real, apparently):

What hardware do you use?

My tools for national security consulting are primarily a semi-auto .22 rifle with a silencer. They are virtually completely silent and can pierce car doors and other light armor. They are perfect for urban environments.

My accessory tools are mostly extremely strong espresso and research chemicals from China that are classed as “Smart Drugs”. They allow me to solve 2nd order partial differential equations in my head and to spontaneously create 4 dimensional images of software structures that I can mentally manipulate.

Three Adorable, Endangered Tiger Cubs Born at the London Zoo

by Jason G. Goldman on Animals, shared by Charlie Jane Anders to io9

ZSL London Zoo is now home to three cubs belonging to one of the world's rarest big cat species. There are only some 300 Sumatran tigers (Panthera tigris sumatrae) still living in the wild. They're classified by the IUCN Red List as "Critically Endangered," because they suffer from habitat loss, territory fragmentation, human-tiger conflict, and poaching.

THANKGODYOUREHERE

if i could just kill this man and take his clothes or leave him alive and have them i dont care










As recalled from the range of the previous Winter collection called Rebuild by Needles, Nepenthes offers a teaser of their upcoming Fall/Winter 2014 collection of menswear.

The pieces designed by Keizo Shimizu each offer vintage Americana outfits that are torn apart. The apparel is reconfigured and reconstructed to create a one of a kind look. The garments have buttons and pockets that appear in the most unusual places and loose tailoring suddenly becomes trendy. It will be available at Nepenthes during the later part of this year.

Trouble is brewing

by Kerry

Writes Patrick in Wisconsin: “A member of our office staff prefers a lighter blend, while the rest of us tech guys prefer a cup of coffee that will actually wake us up.”

After the original laminated note spurred this tempest in a coffee pot, Patrick says that Ms. “Three Scoops” upped the ante by bringing in a second coffeemaker for her own personal use. The notes, however, remain.

3 Scoops of grounds brews a great pot of coffee.  If you like coffee so weak that you can see through it. If you're looking for mud, please see Starbucks. :) Considering that Starbucks is one of the most successful businesses in history, they probably know a thing or two about making coffee.  Good Point, and to continue your example, even Starbucks has a blonde roast. They found that many customers demanded a lighter coffee, because they didn't want swampwater. :-P  Note it is called Blonde Blend!  Crafty people discovered a long time ago that you can turn coffee that is too strong into weaker coffee by simply adding water. However to turn (brown) water into something else, one needs the power of the almighty.

Sarlacc Pit Toilet

by René

Sarlacc-Aufkleber für die heimische Toilette. Die Illus sehen zwar eher so mittelokaynaja aus, man kann die aber sicherlich etwas rougher und toller hinbiegen, wenn man einfach ein paar Wochen die Toilette nicht putzt und die Klobürste weglässt.

„In its belly, you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a…thousand years.“

8. For best results use a blow drier to warm up the decals a little to maximize bonding of the adhesive.

9. Drop a turd into your brand new Pit of Carkoon toilet.

10. Wash your hands.

It’s a Sarlacc in your Toilet

New Video: Iggy Azalea Feat. Charli XCX “Fancy”

by Andy B.
THANKGODYOUREHERE

I LOVE IT

iggy azalea fancy.jpg

Commonwealth beauties Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX come together for their very own Clueless remake in the video for their “Fancy” collaboration. Obviously Iggy plays the blonde bombshell Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone) who rules the halls of Beverly Hills High School. She’s definitely got the sassiness to match.

“Fancy” is taken from Iggy Azalea’s forthcoming debut, The New Classic, which drops April 15. The accompanying tour kicks off later that month on April 23 in Boston.

Watch after the jump…

Check out the making of the video below.
