Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
http://www.dailydot.com/news/darrien-hunt-shot-by-police-while-cosplaying/

Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.

Man what in the FUCK

While obviously the whole point of this article is the police system’s systematic racism and abuse of power showing itself again (black dude in a predominantly white neighborhood that allows open-carry, swords included, autopsy showing that the wounds don’t match up to the story, police facebook trying to downplay the whole thing), the article itself states that he was not actually cosplaying. I guess Daily Dot thought “Black Dude Shot for Cosplaying” was better clickbait than “Black Dude Shot Because of Systematic Racism Yet Again” and decided to keep it even after it was proven the similarities were coincidental and he was just wearing a sword for any old reason.

So let’s not go spreading fear that POCs can’t even cosplay without being safe and keep the focus on the important details.

While I don’t really listen to GWAR, I gotta say, this is pretty fucking rad. Just hearing about metal frontwomen is really rad to me. Plus, her tits spray blood. What’s not to love?

Oh shit…

shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

Why do people think the eagles would have worked. The only way Frodo got to Mordor is because Aragorn metaphorically pulled down his pants and mooned Sauron so hard the dude got his mega army to wipe out this last hope, especially knowing Aragorn was the heir of Isildur. Wipe them all out. If they just took the eagles, than holy shit there’s a good half a million (maybe more) orcs, the eye constantly watching, and Naz’gul. Like, unless eagles move at hyper speed or stop being arrogant and lordly creatures (such as the lord of the eagles was in The Hobbit), it would have failed horribly. 

Tolkein fucking disproved this theory by going “the eagles are not Middle-Earth’s taxi service.”

Why do people think this is STILL such a CLEVER AND WITTY THING to pull and go “Lord of the Rings r dumb, eagles lul”

Fuck you, eagles do their own god damn business. They helped out at the end as a favor, then proceeded to fuck off to do what they like to do.

God damn.

Gwaihir only rescued Gandalf from Isengard because Gandalf had saved him once before and he owed him a favor. The great eagles were messengers and watchmen and ferrying people around was beneath them; they only did it if they owed favors, which they were all about repaying. Not only that, but it was a lot harder for them to fly when they were carrying something or someone, and they fear archers more than anything. Gwaihir’s been nailed by archers before, and if he was trying to carry Frodo, he would’ve been beyond fucked. Getting Gandalf off the tower was hard enough.

The Great Eagles are also Maiar, which limits what they’re allowed to influence in the world; the most they’re allowed to do is spread news and keep an eye on shit, much like how Gandalf was more about leading people and getting them to be proactive rather than rolling around blasting people with wizard power. Plus, being Maiar, they are just as susceptible to the effects of the Ring as anyone else; the eagles are incredibly proud and would be fucked by the corruption of the Ring.

This is part of why Frodo was picked to take the Ring in the first place. Hobbits are about the purest thing on Middle-Earth there is. They’re simple as hell and don’t have the ambitions of men, elves, dwarves or Maiar, so they were the best bet for getting the Ring to the (Ass)Crack of Doom. That’s another important detail, by the way; it couldn’t just be dropped into the caldera, it had to be taken directly to the Crack of Doom, and an eagle wouldn’t fit through the tunnel to get there. Plus, hobbits are a lot less noticeable on foot than on a twenty fucking foot bird.

Besides, why would “fly, you fools,” mean “Go find the twenty foot eagles?” There’s no special, cryptic meaning behind the words: they literally mean, “Don’t try to save me. There’s orcs crawling out of the fucking woodwork, FUCKING RUN.” And why would the orcs know shit about the eagles, anyway? They’re orcs, all they really know is burn, maim, and kill, and the Uruk-hai weren’t a thing yet.

tl;dr this theory is bullshit

pardonmewhileipanic:

really fucking sick and tired of seeing “fat art” with no arm rolls, thigh rolls, side rolls, no back rolls, no belly hang, no cankles, no double chins

it’s all flat/smooth stomachs with wide thighs and perfectly round asses and huge breasts, no extra rolls and hardly ever double chins

oh your sketch depicts socially acceptable levels of fat? fucking revolutionary

but yeah… GO BODY POSITIVITY AND FAT REPRESENTATION and all that

Pretty sure that youtube link is not the song on that is pictured on this sheet of music… It seems to be the theme for this anime character. Here’s a group of professional musicians attempting to perform it as loyally to the sheet music as possible. Iiiiiit basically just sounds like garbled noise, it’s not really a song. Here’s another guy explaining the difference between the two.

I find it hysterical that in the description for the very first video linked in this string, it calls the song Death Waltz and then in the very next sentence says “Actually the song is U.N. Owen was Her?” (Which is the theme for Flandre Scarlet of the Touhou series of games, written by ZUN and popularly remixed by COOL&CREATE). What I’m still curious about is the reasoning behind calling it Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz (Not that such a name isn’t a perfectly apt description of Flandre Scarlet) when the uploader clearly knew it was a Synethesia “Impossible” remix of U.N. Owen was Her?, and that people who reupload the video continue to title it as such while admitting in the description that the song isn’t the actual Death Waltz. That explanation clip unfortunately doesn’t really get into that.

Because I’m a loser for Rockabye Baby (and because it makes surprisingly good work music), have a snippet from probably the cutest rendition of a song about rape ever.

Speaking of Guild Wars, I’ve set up all eight of my characters, so if you see any of these fine folks running around, don’t be afraid to say hi:

Prophecies starters: Narancia Valmar (necromancer), Enkeli Rayel (elementalist), Sirno Nostrand (mesmer)

Factions starters: Ilvala Soma (ritualist), Sora Shirou (assassin), Somkai Arthit (monk)

Nightfall starters: Samar Sauda (dervish), Riaz Oluchi (paragon)

And of course, being the RPing loser I am, I’ll wind up with backstories for all of these fine folks. So far, all I have is that Narancia is the ancestor of my GW2 Necro Mir Valmar. Maybe if I have some money to spare sometime, I’ll buy those hero slots and really get my team interacting.
