Imagine my surprise when Pacific Rim again has a huge presence at SDCC.

This is Prop Store London’s auction offerings on display. I wasn’t expecting these, so I didn’t bring my DSLR with me, but man was it cool to see Striker Eureka’s suit.

The Legendary booth, as well, is hardcore decked out Pacific Rim. There’s a few themed props (don’t worry, I took photos too) and the booth workers are wearing costumes/pieces from the film.

There’s an Oculous Rift demo that I didn’t get a chance to try yet, as well, so I’m going to make a beeline to the Legendary booth first thing when the floor opens tomorrow.

'til then, enjoy these! 

neuralhandshake comes through again for PacRim SDCC pics!

i want all of these things

ALL OF THEM

Starz’ appeal to Internet fandom makes perfect sense, because the Outlander books have always inspired a passionate following of fan clubs and discussion forums. The TV series is definitely something that people will become obsessed with, rather than simply tuning in and enjoying every week like Downton Abbey.

Unfortunately, this media strategy is more than a little ironic once you know about Diana Gabaldon’s attitude toward fandom.

The problem is, Diana Gabaldon really doesn’t like fanfiction.

 in 2010, she wrote a blog post on the topic of fanfiction, saying, “I think it’s immoral, I know it’s illegal, and it makes me want to barf whenever I’ve inadvertently encountered some of it involving my characters.” She goes on to compare fanfiction to seducing her husband or breaking into her home.

This post was quickly deleted, but not before being saved and reposted by many fans due to the furore it caused. Fan writers are happy to keep their fanfiction private and separate from its original inspiration, but nobody reacts well to being told their hobby is disgusting and wrong. This was the worst way anyone could break the fourth wall between fans and creators.

On another occasion, Gabaldon wrote that “99% of [fanfiction] is Just Awful, and it’s revolting to see your characters being made to do and say idiotic things, or be forced to enact simple-minded sex fantasies (which is what most fan-fic that comes to my unwilling attention is).  Like someone selling your children into white slavery.” 

This all makes a lot less sense once you learn that Gabaldon has admitted on several occasions that her inspiration came from Doctor Who. Specifically, the time-traveling 18th century Scotsman Jamie McCrimmon, played by Frazer Hines. The male protagonist of the Outlander series is, of course, named Jamie Fraser. It’s easy to argue that Outlander is a kind of fanfiction itself, or at least it began that way.

[NEVER FORGET!]

Who’s in now for the ‘Craptastic things Diana Gabaldon won’t be able to help saying about her own fandom’ drinking game? *SWIGS*

"…tanned skin, pencil thin eyebrows, long, straight hair dyed light brown, mini-skirts and platform boots. She can sing, she can dance, sure. But it’s that look that catapulted Namie Amuro to the top of the heap of Japan’s teen queens. Flocks of "Amuraas" soon appeared all over Japan, young girls mimicking her style, down to the tattoo shaped like a bar code she wears on her right wrist." - TIME asia, 2000

After a decade-long drought with no teen queen, Japanese pop culture is awash with images of Namie Amuro, a 19-year-old from Okinawa. Her popularity can be seen on the streets, where young women dress like her, and heard in the language, where a new word was coined to describe those who copy her style. “Amuraa" refers to young women with golden tans, long hair dyed brown, heavy makeup and short, tight T-shirts." - International Herald Tribune, 1996

"Japanese, a language promiscuously open to neologisms, has recently added a new term to its lexicon: Amuraa, a proper noun describing a breed of young woman ubiquitous in the fashionable parts of Tokyo.” - The Independent, 1996

"Komuro penned one hit for her in 1995, Body Feels Exit, and Amuro at 17 was suddenly bigger than Madonna in Japan. Her concerts sold out within ten minutes of tickets going on sale. What followed defined the entire idol concept. Her tanned skin, common on Okinawa, suddenly became a must-have look for teenage girls across Japan and self-tanning lotion sales exploded. Every detail of her clothes, her make-up, and her accessories were copied by hundreds of thousands of girls, who began calling themselves the “Amuraa.”" - The Times, 2005

YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF

This got even funnier when I realized that to shoot it, essentially someone had to hurl a massive rat puppet at Cary Elwes.

My favorite thing is that he doesn’t telegraph it at all. He never tenses up, never flinches, just waits for the giant rat puppet being hurled through the air to take him down. Great performance.

I still hold the belief that this was a one take thing and he didn’t know a giant rat was going to be thrown at him.

I did not think that before but from this day forward I will accept only this.

Tribute to my favorite Miyazaki movie of all time. Princess Mononoke portrays the beauty and challenges of coexisting with mother nature so perfectly. It teaches a lesson that we can all learn from. If you haven’t seen this classic already, I highly recommend it :)

Okay, so you know how feminists like to insist that the movement is about equality, not women, and how they like to claim that the dictionary says feminism is about equality?

It doesn’t. Not the Google result for “define:feminism”. Not the site summary for feminist.com, or /r/Feminism, or Wikipedia, the OED, Webster, or Dictionary.com.

Every single one says it’s about women’s rights. Equality is at best a justification.

The closest is Webster’s, which, curiously, draws a clear distinction between feminism as a belief in equality, and feminism as a movement for women.

*cough* yeah it’s about trying to promote women’s rights, to make them equal to men’s rights. 

Which assumes that women are unilaterally disadvantaged compared to men, which is not the case.

We can agree that women are treated way differently in society then men and are seen as “inferior”

Begging the question. Or, more pedantically, Affirming the Consequent.

So yeah it’s about women’s rights, which in turn causes equality. 

See first objection. If a man and a woman walk into a police station to report being raped, which one is more likely to get justice? And how does calling rape “violence against women” promote equality?

Making feminism about equality and women’s rights. 

Circular logic is circular.

Also I’m not really seeing the whole point of this post

Clearly.

because I don’t see what it proves, 

That’s more true than you realize.

how does this help anti-feminists? (Assuming that’s what this post is trying to do)

It’s trying to point out that feminism is about women, not equality. The claim “feminism is about equality, look it up” is often deployed when feminism is criticized for not being about equality.  Even the summary for Feminist.com says it’s for women, and mentions nothing about equality.

At best it just kinda… is there?

Maybe you’ll understand when you’re older, kid. Then again, maybe not. I’d like to point out that people have been trying to talk about men’s issues in and out of feminism as far back as the 70s, and feminists have broken the law trying to shut them up. People who talk about men’s issues get blamed for everything from Anita Sarkeesian’s harassment to the Elliot Rodger murders. 

You do understand that men have their own gender issues, right? Because you didn’t mention those. Even once. Or claim that feminism is working on them.

Incidentally, I’m not being patronizing because you’re a feminist. I’m being patronizing - actually, I’m holding back - because you’re a teenager who hasn’t really considered their viewpoints and thinks a tumblr design that actively obscures the description under image posts is a good idea.

Which doesn’t speak well for your ability to think things through. That takes experience.

Whoops, accidentally sent it to the wrong tumblr.

Maybe put it on a canvas instead of someone’s property, and we can all be happy.

My father was a garment contractor in LA. In the late 80s, he owned the building where he had his factory. He thought it would be a cool idea to commission local graffiti artists, usually young Black and Latino men looking to stay out of trouble, to paint murals on his buildings. After all, he runs a garment design/manufacturing company, and creative signage is great advertising.
One day, he showed up to the building and the city just painted over the murals without permission or notice.
First, the city told him he couldn’t have graffiti art on HIS building because it brought down property value. After he complained, then they said: ok you can do this, but you need a permit. After he got the permit, then the city said: ok, but you can only use these artists.  Of course, these artists were all White graphic design students from USC, and of course they charged 3x more.
There is a prejudice against this type of art, and it’s racial.  Banksy vandalizes folks buildings all the time, and folks treat him like the Messiah. He ain’t doing nothing new that Black and Brown folks haven’t done for decades.

PREACHHH

There is an emergency protest and vigil outside Downing Street from 5-7pm today. Help us tell Cameron we are sickened at his refusal to call for an end to Israel’s war crimes. Please bring flowers, in the name of one of the children who has been killed in the past two weeks.

7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

Be a little careful about these though. My mom hires a lot of people and she says sometimes people ask obviously prepackaged questions and she less of them because they’re not asking questions that are really appropriate to the job. Also be careful who you’re asking. For example, she was interviewing people and the individual that the interviewees would be replacing was also in the room. One interviewee asked the first question (what do you like most…?), but they asked it to HER and not to the person whose job they would actually be taking. Not the smartest, since her job isn’t the job they’re applying for. Also don’t ask the question unless you’re legitimately interested in the answer - again, if my mom thinks the interviewee is asking the question just to sound smart/interested, she’ll give them the longest, wordiest answer she can to see whether they stay engaged or not. If their eyes start to glaze over within 10 sec, they weren’t actually interested, and they’re not getting the job. If they manage to stay interested, that’s good, but it’s still an obviously prepackaged question. To be honest, my mom always prefers people ask pointed questions directly related to the job, so she knows they were paying attention and thinking about this job in particular, rather than throwing out catch-all questions that could match any kind of job. I think these are a good base, but you always want to do some research on the company and tailor your questions a bit.
