Stoya™: Our Bodies, Our Press Materials (Part 1) →
aemiliamcmorbid: stoya: My flight landed an hour early. The gorgeous, wonderful man picking me up was running on time, which meant that I had a good 45 minutes to kill at the airport. When this happens I sometimes tweet that it’s q&a time. Some of the questions are really just compliments, some are queries as to… Stoya in not only one of the most beautiful women I can think of, but she...

Hillary Clinton: Would you ever ask a man that question?
Interviewer: Probably not. Probably not.
Supernatural, season 2, episode 15… WTF did I just watch? I loved the Trickster, by the way.
Born under a bad sign
Possessed Sam was the creepiest, scariest thing that happened so far. Maybe because he’s usually so innocent and vulnerable, but I was tense for the whole episode, feeling sorry for Dean, Jo and especially for Sam. Jared Padalecki sure did a great job in this episode, because he was unbelievably creepy even without the black-eyes effect. I am happy they didn’t kill Bobby in this...
playing fable III
momochanners: payroo: i’ve never played a fable game before, so going in completely blind. so this game is basically like the sims with combat it seems? mindless fun from meaningless interactions, i can dig that. (i have belched at everyone i’ve seen) For me, it has also the 2nd most frustrating friendzoned NPC after Varric: Ben Finn ;3; I second that.
Escher Girls: Insight into the Comic Book Industry →
loish: this is an interesting blog post worth reading for anyone who works in the commercial art industry (read it here). i do not work in the comics industry necessarily, so fortunately i haven’t ever received critiques of this kind (and hope to never receive them, because i would F R E A K O U T). but i think it’s some pretty good food for thought about female representation in commercial...
Supernatural - it happened again
Remember when I mentioned watching Supernatural with my boyfriend, and everything Sam said, I would say it, while everything Dean said, he would say it... well, it happened again.
The boys reach a crossroad and find out that a demon is selling contracts.
Boyfriend: They shouldn't do anything. Those persons willingly sold their souls, so why would the brothers need to help them? It's not a monster hunting innocents...
Me: But demons trick people into selling their soul! It is not always just their faults! Demons use people's emotions, secrets and thoughts to trick them into signing a contract.
Dean: This isn't our problem! Those persons willingly sold their soul, why would we help them?
Sam: But demons are treacherous, they trick people in to accepting a contract.
It happens every time! I am Sam. 8)

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If...
Guys, this is definitely a complete and comprehensive representation of the "friendzone" situation. Everyone reblog this. And by comprehensive, I mean, it's really not. And by reblog this, I mean don't.
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Man: Fuck you, slut.

Of trains and books
I am commuting and the guy sitting near me is reading a book that, from its title, seems like the most interesting book ever. It’s taking all my willpower to mind my own business and not read the inviting page that lays open so close to my eyes. Ugh.

Fact: I love John Winchester Fact: Jeffrey Dean Morgan is awesome
Is the social web divided by race? A bbc article I...
The BBC website published the following article and I don’t really get it (here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18680485) 3 July 2012 Last updated at 02:05 GMT The internet was once considered a great equaliser, a platform that could bring strangers together, even across racial boundaries. But internet users of the same race have recently begun clustering on certain social media...
Supernatural - part 2
So, boyfriend and I are close to the end of season 1 of Supernatural - just watched the “Something Wicked” episode, the one withe Shtriga, the cool kid in the motel, and some nice flashbacks. My first impression has changed a little bit: a while ago, I had said it’s a nice show, but complained that girls only die, scream, or stand there and look pretty; well, we are starting to...
