  • classmate: wait, what's polyamory?

  • professor: *overhears from front of class*
  • professor: that is d i s g u s t i n g

Dear Leverage and Stargate fans,

Remember that awesome post where we all saw the Stargate plates up on the walls behind Victor Dubenich? And how excited we all were that the crew of Leverage were such massive Stargate geeks?

I was listening to the commentary for The Last Dam…

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel

reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better

  

A Short Halloween PSA

tearlessrain:

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:

I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.

So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.

just so you know what is going on in my country right now:

  • votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
  • media very “”no”” centred and bias
  • unionists are now attacking yes voters
  • a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
  • they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
  • our first minister resigns

please signal boost this 

Okay, so, I’m a Scot (and I voted Yes and was utterly gutted that the vote went the way it did) but - whilst, yes, there was a bit of a stramash that went on for a few hours, involving a pretty small number of people in Glasgow city centre (and another, smaller, one in Dundee) last night, the have actually been NO reports of any stabbings, there is no civil unrest and we do not need any signal boosting of this nature. The few that fell to violence appear to have been thugs looking for a fight, not anyone actually protesting or making any kind of reasonable political statement.

What we DO need is time to let ourselves draw back together, to capitalise on the EXTRAORDINARY level of political engagement we have - 84.6% of eligible voters voted, including 16 & 17 year olds who were allowed to vote for the first time - and continue the conversations we’ve all been having for years now - including many, many people who have never really felt politics were something that affected them - and for ALL of US to move FORWARD to build up our nation (within the UK) into something we are ALL JUSTIFIABLY proud of (and hopefully make sure that the UK government now delivers on the promises it made - what you CAN SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE is this petition: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/page/s/promise-for-Scotland#petition that requests that they do that)

Okay, so one of the things that lucifuge5 and I have been tossing around is the idea of opening up bandombigbang to other fanworks. In the past, the focus of creative fanworks was fixed on writing. But now, other forms of creative fanworks have become…
