Pithy Helmet

Hey, Internet! Here's some stuff.

When I was a child, it was believed that animals became extinct because they were too specialized. My father used to tell us about the saber-tooth tiger’s teeth — how they got too big and the tiger couldn’t eat because he couldn’t take game anymore. And I remember my father saying, with my brother sitting there, ‘I wonder what it will be with the human beings that will be so overspecialized that they’ll kill themselves off?’

My father never found out that my brother was working on the bomb.

Well, then.

make me choose: Sarah or Alison or Cosima (for Isabel)

Would anyone choose Alison? Really? This is a RIDICULOUSLY COOL gifset though. If you aren’t watching this…watch it…it’s on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Seriously one of the best things on TV right now. If you have Amazon Prime there’s no reason not to catch up.

Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link. 

Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.

Hope you like it!

This right here, is goddamn BRILLIANT.

And then I was all “oh I get it, she just said the title of her book.”

Stephen King being Stephen King

Stephen King can spoil whatever the hell he wants. Also, he’s not wrong.

"She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid."

Star Wars fan Bill Deacon transformed his 1974 Chevy Malibu into a street-legal replica of the Millennium Falcon. The road vehicle-turned-spacecraft features all sorts of great details, including HANCHWY vanity plates and a field of streaking stars around the ship’s bow on the hood and front bumper. But our favorite feature is the cockpit mounted in place of the right starboard side-view mirror that contains Han Solo and Chewbacca action figures.

Matt, did they not have this one at the dealership?
