the fact that there have no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people
The more I think about it, the more I would pick my apocalypse survival team to be nothing more than 1980s-1990s PBS hosts. (You know—assuming they were alive or resurrected at the time.)
So many apocalyptic shows/games are about people sitting around and squabbling over supplies, then dying. That’s a shitty way to live, even in shitty circumstances. You know that Mister Rogers would be diffusing arguments left and right to the point where people would feel bad just for raising their voice. Carl Sagan would keep everyone’s hopes up just by suggesting there are more decent people out there—aliens too, but more people. LeVar Burton would keep the kids educated and motivated in the worst of times, Julia Child would make the best food she could out of limited rations, and Bob Ross would make an excellent scout, given his good eye.
And if anyone still was a son of a bitch, Julia would snap his shotgun in half, stuff that turkey with the shattered remains of his gun and give him a little “seasoning”, and have Bob bury that offender’s corpse under some happy little trees.
You couldn’t bring the McLaughlin group along, though. Their constant bickering would just alert the horde and get everyone killed.

so far, I have piped in the guide lines for 3 different Winter Soldier cookie metal arms and no two have been similar. I think I figured out which one I like though, so I am probably going to scrape the icing off of the first two, dammit.
"Flagman" isn’t even one of my codenames!
ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY
Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.
Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?
This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”
At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”
"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.
"How is white a feminine color?"
She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.
The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.
A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.
And the son is more mature than her.
Imagine if he wanted white in the first place.
Q: I really appreciate the fact that you have non-American actors speaking their native languages, instead of making it seem like everyone in the world speaks English like it usually is in most Hollywood movies. Why is Hollywood so allergic to subtitles? — Interview in Today Online with Guillermo del Toro, 11/07/2013
BAAAHHHH WHY IS HE SO GREAT
#god you try to tell me some more that guillermo del toro#did not mean every single choice in the movie#the casting of a japanese actress to play a japanese character#the casting of a black english man with a working class accent to play the authority figure#YOU TRY TO TELL ME AGAIN#THAT GUILLERMO DEL TORO#DOES NOT MEAN EVERY SINGLE CHOICE (via quigonejinn)
And at last, Coriolanus is DONE. What a wonderful adventure stitching Caius Martius has been - a lot of late nights/early mornings when I got on a roll, a lot of frogging when things went wrong, a lot of changes in how I wanted the final piece to appear. All in all, I will call it a success.
Tom’s face is just heavenly to stitch. This is the second portrait I’ve done of him; it won’t be the last. (Hmm, is it time for Loki? I think it is.) But I will take a wee break from sticking a needle in the Hiddles-face to work on a kit I just got: a spectacular peacock. But don’t worry, before you know it, I’ll be posting progress shots of a certain God of Mischief as well.
I hope you all enjoy this labor of love.

There’s a toy? :D (Why is stuff like that so hard to get by here??) Yeah, I know, it must be realistic. ;P I would have expected more dumb jokes about it, though. That part was very disappointing. xD
Yes, there is. He’s a 1/6 scale figure, just over 12”, and $215.
Hot Toys are known for their facial sculpts and details, and while I’d prefer this one if it came with a second non-cowl head, it’s not bad. I’m still so excited for my Winter Soldier Steve/Cap 2 pack coming this winter/spring, I can’t even).
Probably my favorite part is the detail on the inside of the shield—you can see it peeking out in the above pic, but the next one features it:
The extra hands allow for different poses and options, like holding the shield, guns, pointing, punching, clenching fists in a patriotic, manner, etc.
Also, booty shorts.
