Gawds do I hate that “If your icon…” meme.

For the last time, my icon is a dragon from a mediaeval French manuscript; no, I don’t want to have tea with it, nor sex for that matter, although he’s super rad for lighting up fires under the kettle.

Mine’s a marauding viking. And in my theme it’s a waterfall. I don’t find either of these things sexually compelling.

Hey, my icon is the Game of Thrones-style sigil of my theoretical Noble House. A sigil made up of a book and the sun. Try to do any “your icon” meme with that…

At first I’d read “do your icon meme”, but it sort of worked as well. May be a little… angular. Also, hot, although probably not in a good way, more like a “holy fuck I ought to have checked the temperature before going in that bath”  sort of heat. Or, rather, possibly, an “argh aaargh my face it is melting”  sort of heat.

Good thing I had practically no eyebrow to begin with, that dragon took some work to train.

Mine’s a pudgy penguin daring you to poke him.  Try doing anything with that.

Actually I’m not sure it’d be entirely legal to do so.

Haha!  There’s also the anatomical issue to consider.

  CLASSIC WHOVIANS, I NEED YOUR HELP:

brilliantfantasticgeronimo:

Our local doctor who fan club has been organizing screenings of the new series 8 episodes as they air, and last week we decided would also screen one episode of the classic series as a “sample” to each doctor’s era (so that people who want to start the old series have somewhere to start, other…

The Daleks - Season 1

Ok, the first two are going to be a little difficult because so many episodes are missing.  However, as far as the first Doctor goes, this is a darn good place to start.  Most of the major elements of Who are there, interesting enemy for the Doctor to fight, and there isn’t a lot of backstory to try and catch up on.

The Enemy of the World - Season 5

This one is now complete, so I have no reason not to recommend it.  It’s a solid episode with a lot of action and surprises. 

The Daemons - Season 8

This one is one of my favorites, it’s got all the best parts of the Third Doctor
's run, The Master, UNIT and the Brigadier, and plenty of action.

The Face of Evil - Season 14

A good episode with lots of humor.  This one is also the introduction of Leela, one of my favorite classic companions. 

Black Orchid - Season 19

If anyone in the club liked “The Unicorn and the Wasp” this is the episode for them.  It’s got a very similar tone and feel to it’s new series counterpart, even if Agatha Christie doesn’t make an appearance.

Attack of the Cybermen - Season 22

One of the few good Sixth Doctor episodes.

Remembrance of the Daleks - Season 25

This is a gloriously meta episode.  It really ties everything back to where the show started. And it’s a great place to start with the Seventh Doctor.

'I Will Personally Pay For Every Member Of The Westboro Baptist Church To Fly To Iraq Right Now'

(To Westboro Baptist Church)

"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"

Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”

GUYS

THEY ACCEPTED

The difference between DC and Marvel

grootsdabae:

How DC ends their movies:

How Marvel ends their movies:

And this, right here, is why Marvel is outstripping DC in the comic book movie race.  Marvel likes to have fun with their movies, and they want the audience to have fun too.  DC, on the other hand, has gotten it stuck into their heads that grim and “realistic” is the way to go because it worked so well with the Christopher Nolan Batman films.  Not realizing that what makes Superman what he is, is his innate goodness and kindness.  His ability to do what’s right and decent even if it causes him harm.  Dude can shoot laser beams out of his eyes, and throw tanks into orbit, but he chooses not to be an agent of chaos or destruction because that’s not how he was raised.  Either on Krypton or on Earth by his adoptive parents.  It’s just not who he is.  He has chosen to be a symbol of hope and decency for the world.  And that’s my biggest problem with Man of Steel, they didn’t give us enough hope.

TL;DR: Someone needs to tell DC that the Dark Age is over.

People who call Loki their precious little misunderstood woobie

I’m laughing so hard at the idea of (Marvel’s) Loki finding out about tumblr. I’d have to delete my blog but that’d be worth it.

Frankly, I’m hesitating. Because on one hand, freebie minions!!! but on the other hand, I’m at least half-certain Asgardians can have heart attacks and I don’t think Thorki is quite ready to be canon yet in the M.C.U., no, not even secretly.

But freebie minions. Although I’m not certain they would last long if they kept telling their master how weekly and feeble he is.

Pft, he’d probably spend half his time trolling the Thorki shippers just for the hell (or Hel) of it. 

I’d be more concerned about all the females willing to throw themselves at his feet.  Or the ones who want to “make him better”.
