if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.

crASHES THROUGH THE WALL BECAUSE I HEARD SOMEBODY NEEDED MONEY TO CLEAN THE OCEAN

I was wondering what happened to this. everyone help out if you can at least spread it, looks like he only needs 8% and there’s only 4 days!

It’s really close, guys! Just donate $6 and it’ll be done! 2 days to go!

why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain

no one tell him

Jesus christ, what the hell is going on with these kids nowadays? You need Shakespeare in your life, dipshit.

“You fool. No man can kill me.”

How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?

Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy

Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.

so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic

This revelation just knocked me over.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN. BACK THE FUCK UP SIT THE FUCK DOWN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING YOU’RE FUCKING JON SNOW HERE. LET ME TELL U A THING

JONNY T WAS LITERALLY THE BIGGEST FANBOY TO EVER WALK THE EARTH. LITERALLY THIS FUCKIN NERD WENT INTO WORLD WAR ONE AND WROTE NORSEFIC EDDA FANFIC IN THE TRENCHES AND SENT IT TO ALL HIS FRIENDS WHO WERE PRESUMABLY LIKE “JOHN WHAT THE FUCK”

BUT IT DOESN’T END THERE

HIS WIFE? MADE HER AND HIMSELF INTO SELF-INSERT OCS IN SAID FIC. ALSO MADE HIMSELF A TOTAL TYR SELF INSERT CHARACTER. ALL VERY DRAMATIC. KEPT WRITING THIS FIC UNTIL IT WAS HUGE. AFTER HE DIED HIS SON PUBLISHED IT AND CALLED IT THE SILMARILLION. JRR YOU FUCKIN NERD

WAIT I’M NOT FUCKING DONE YET. TREEBEARD? BASED THE WAY HE TALKED OF HIS OLD FRIEND JACK WHO YOU ALL MIGHT KNOW AS CS LEWIS. THAT’S RIGHT. THAT NARNIA MOTHERFUCKER. WROTE HIM INTO LORD OF THE RINGS AKA THE SEQUEL TO THE SEQUEL OF HIS ORIGINAL FANFIC MASTERPIECE. CS LEWIS FUCKING HATED LORD OF THE RINGS. TOLKIEN FUCKING HATED NARNIA. BASICALLY THEY STARTED THE OXFORD PROFESSOR LIVEJOURNAL CLUB AND THEY FLAMED EACH OTHER’S SHIT RELENTLESSLY YET REMAINED BFFS

SHELOB? FUCKING TARANTULA BIT J-TIDDY ON THE FOOT WHEN HE WAS LIKE 3. WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS.

HIS AUNT’S HOUSE? NAMED BAG END. YEAH YOU GUESSED IT WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS

THIS FUCKING DORKUS SUPREME MADE UP HIS OWN LANGUAGE. WAIT NO IM WRONG. HE MADE UP LIKE 80 LANGUAGES AND DIALECTS AND ALPHABETS AND SHIT 

BEST PART OF ALL?? HIS OWN LAST NAME, TOLKIEN, WAS DERIVED FROM THE GERMAN “TOLKHUN” MEANING “FOOLHARDY”. DOES THAT RING A BELL TO ANYONE FAMILIAR TO LORD OF THE RINGS??? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT PEREGRIN “PIPPIN” TOOK’S LIKE FUCKING CATCHPHRASE WAS “FOOL OF A TOOK”. TOLKIEN FIC’D HIS OWN FAMILIAL LINGUISTIC HISTORY INTO HIS WORK WHAT A DWEEB

IN 2008 HE RANKED 6TH ON A LIST OF THE TOP 50 BRITISH WRITERS SINCE 1945. HE WAS A PROFESSOR OF LANGUAGES AND OTHER IMPORTANT STUFFY SHIT AT OXFORD

AND JRR TOLKIEN WAS THE BIGGEST DWEEB EVER TO LIVE

THE END

Ragyo Kiryuin preview! …Of course I realized immediately after I took my makeup off that I’d forgot to put on the collar but oh well.  This also does not include the feather boa/cape, but I wanted to be sure to put some preview pics up before Colossalcon!

The wig took forever and a day, but I’m actually really happy with how it turned out.  There were a few things I’d really wanted to accomplish with it: It needed to both light up and look good while turned off.  It also needed to be portable for wearing around a convention.  I find that EL wire tends to not photograph well during the daytime, while LEDs can be too bright if they aren’t diffused.  So I ended up packing a hollow foam space with superbright 5050 LEDs, and then diffusing them with wig fiber laid on top of a plexiglass screen.  The wig runs off of 4 to 8 AA’s and is monstrously bright - the color is hard to see on cameraphones while in darker spaces, but I’m looking to experiment with the voltage to get a more consistent photo range.  I’ll be putting up a wig guide with progress pics after the con too.

Necessary.

I signed a change.org petition asking that this, among other necessary policies be made mandatory by federal law. FUCKING SIGN IT.

well would you look at that…

I think this will happen…many police unions do not want it to happen, but I think it will happen. It will take a lot of time and a lot of fighting, but every moment of that fight is going to be worth it. 

Police unions will want more research, I think that’s important, and that research is being done now. While use of force and number of complaints are important statistics, so is overall crime rate (which unions will argue is adversely affected (because officers are thinking about how they’ll look on camera, not how to do their jobs) unless there are overwhelming data to counter that claim).

Also vitally important will be whether these save police departments money (which they probably will, in reduced complaints and simpler court cases.) 

And let’s not forget about privacy…if these videos are being uploaded to cloud-based evidence systems (which they probably will be) who is going to have access to them? What do you do with videos that have nothing to do with active cases? How long are videos stored for? How do you protect that data? Who decides when the cameras are on or off (civil rights orgs (and I) will argue that they must be always-on, police officers will say “what about when I’m peeing.”) And, if there’s an off switch, we can assume the off switch will get used at the exact time when we will have wanted it to be on.

As I say, this is coming, and it’s important, and it will be a force that runs counter to a lot of the bullshit police work that’s being done in some places in America…but the areas where it’s most vital will be the ones where it arrives last.

And, unfortunately, the federal government will never be able to make a blanket law because congress can’t even agree if flowers are pretty.

This is going to have to be a battle fought in every city in America individually, don’t let that drain your will. Yes, it would be better if it just happened tomorrow, but it will be worse if we all get lazy and say “it’s not happening the way I want so I don’t care if it happens at all.” 

Fuck that…we need do make it happen whatever way we can, even if it takes a long-ass time. 

Sincerely,
An Old Guy
