Marvel Disk Wars: Episode One

I watched the first two episodes last night.  It’s kind of amazing; there’s Tony snarking all over the place, Pepper being 1000% done with Tony’s crap, Cap making a grand speech about Freedom and Justice at the end of episode 2, Loki being all “LOL Taking over the Earth. Deal.” and a couple of very typical teenage anime characters.  It’s really fun, if you can get past the japanese-ness of the whole thing.

i imagine this to be his expression as he listens to various envoys/councilmen voice their concerns about the security of the realm, her current state of disrepair and the immediate health and well-being of asgard’s people and provinces—you know, just trivial everyday irritations that distract from the much more important task of ogling your brother through the little partition of his prison cell door.

digistage is doing a really cool thing for Shakespeare’s 450th birthday. Check it out!

I would totally do this, if it wasn’t for the fact that I don’t have a camera.  Also, I would need to pick one thing.

Episode 1 of A Doctor Who Primer!

Those of you who have been here for a while will recognize the title.  I turned that series of articles into a video series.  We’ll see how it goes.

And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins 

Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

Clearly the most offensive thing is the capitalisation in Warhammer.

Glad someone’s reading my sexy Skavenblight stories though.

The sheer lack of understanding in this article is astounding.  And hilarious.

this is legit btw
I mean, there were folkloric heroes like Robin Hood before the Scarlet Pimpernel, but they didn’t really do the secret identity — people might not have known Robin Hood’s real identity but he wasn’t out living a double life and his costume was just what he and his buds wore in the forest, whereas the Pimpernel was actually doing the exact same thing as Bruce Wayne (pampered aristocrat by day, avenging hero by night)
also I wanna point out that the Scarlet Pimpernel was actually the leader of a league of twenty people also living double lives — Baroness Orczy also invented the first superhero team

Also The Scarlet Pimpernel is goddamned amazing and if you’ve never read it you’re missing out.

Tired of these fake geek guys who’ve probably never even read the Scarlet Pimpernel walking around like they know anything about superheroes.
