i identify with fight club a lot because i also like to express my nonconformity through traditional masculine violence and misogyny. it really goes against what society wants me to do. no wait

While trying to fix her DS, I loaned my niece my 3DS with this on it to play in the meantime. Came back in 10 minutes and she was quite stuck, because apparently the game is a little picky about where you need to be standing in order to enter a pipe.

Still, she is getting better at using a d-pad and buttons. Her first real game was Mario Kart Wii, so naturally she expects everything to be motion controlled.

We’re almost here!

So as I’m replaying the first Mass Effect (now that I’ve listened to the soundtracks a thousand times) is it possible that the elevator music is ELEVATOR VERSIONS OF THE SOUNDTRACK

I’m dying

It wasn’t until maybe my tenth playthrough, up by the radio station in BDtS that I noticed this. Many faces were palmed that day.


Video editing is such a flattering process

Whenever I’m cutting video with a client in the room, even if that client is not on screen, I feel the need to apologise and explain that I’m not trying to make anyone look silly, it’s just that humans fundamentally look silly in freeze frame.



"Men’s Rights" activist and self-proclaimed philosopher Stefan Molyneux pretends to be a woman posting a positive comment on his own video “debunking” Frozen but completely fails at account switching

Self proclaimed philosopher, also proclaimed by a bunch of other totally different single-post people, I imagine.

When I started my daily portrait project back in January of 2011, I only intended to do it for one year (I called it the “Year Book” project, originally). But once I got to the end of the year, I decided to keep doing it indefinitely, thereby raising the obvious question: Just how long am I going…

  • me: *playing bioware game*
  • me: wow im about to enter an important, high-risk, life-or-death battle
  • me: ...
  • me: better bring my significant other

Why are people upset that people are glad Shae is dead?



Because Shae was murdered, and she didn’t deserve to be. Women in real life are constantly being murdered or assaulted by their lovers or exes, and Shae’s murder by Tyrion reflects that. I understand that the audience may like Tyrion, he’s very popular, but that doesn’t make it okay to murder someone who hurt your feelings or “betrayed” you. (Not to mention Shae was basically forced into testifying, it’s apparent, and Tyrion had dumped her so she owed him no sexual loyalty, but those are minor points.) People being happy about the death of Shae is a reflection of the misogyny and violence toward women being enabled in our real-world society. Society blames the victim. It’s not just about fictional characters. Real-life Shaes get killed every day. That’s why it bothers us.

Additionally, Tyrion is meant to be a morally grey character, not a hero- “the greyest of the grey,” according to Martin; this is what makes him fascinating. Washing away all his sins and justifying his murder of her isn’t doing the character or the novels any favors.

All must be sacrificed on the altar of making Tyrion the ultimate woobie.
