Reminder that the creators of Night Vale made their show without any corporate sponsorship or financial compensation other than donations and selling T-shirts and they made it to the number one slot on Itunes and they did it with a godblessed openly queer protagonist and an explicitly dark-skinned love interest thank you and good night.
…All the while supporting both financially and through social media/the show all of the indie creators they work with, highlighting their work and paying great rates. A+
Better together I think not they are burning the Scottish flag in George square, nazi salutes towards war monuments, there was stabbings of yes voters and these are the people who won? This is why I was a yes! I want to feel safe in my country and tonight I don’t. Also of course the news are saying it’s all very peaceful and friendly!!!
Do you really think they wouldn’t have descended if it was a yes vote? These are bigots spoiling for a fight. They were going to be out tonight regardless. Honestly their behaviour is depressing and disappointing but its certainly not surprising.
As a woman, I’ve slowly been written out of the phone world and the phone market. That extra “.2” inches of screen size on each upgrade simply means that I can no longer do what I enviously observe men do every day: Check messages one-handed while carrying groceries or a bag; type a quick note while on a moving bus or a train where I have to hold on not to fall.
I must put down everything in my hands and use my phone with both hands for everything.
There is no rule that says the screen size must get bigger with each upgrade in memory or capabilities, and yet it does. For most men, it’s just one small, added benefit. For many women, though it’s a reminder that the tech industry doesn’t always remember or count your existence.
Just so we are clear: I don’t want a pink phone, I don’t want “women’s applications” and I don’t want ruffles or hello kitty on my phone.
I merely want a design that acknowledges that women exist, and women often have smaller hands than men.
And most men can keep even the largest phones in their pockets, which often isn’t the case with women’s clothes. (cosmiccelery)

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

Vin Diesel is actually precious and we must protect him

Now that this movie is FINALLY happening let’s hope that Fox doesn’t fuck it up and keep it the way the it is in this test footage
Wait, wait, wait. This is the test footage for the movie? This came out a while ago and at the time I thought this was teaser footage for a video game. Anyone have some solid information?
“Basically, I realized I was living in that awful stage of life between twenty-six to and thirty-seven known as stupidity. It’s when you don’t know anything, not even as much as you did when you were younger, and you don’t even have a philosophy about all the things you don’t know, the way you did when you were twenty or would again when you were thirty-eight.”
