“I first wound up in a panel of women who do fan art and fan fiction surrounding the current TV incarnation of Teen Wolf. And you know what they were like? They were a lot like every other panel of geeky young writers I’ve ever seen. They spoke intelligently and thoughtfully about writing and creativity and what they like and don’t like to make art about. They talked about the responsibility they feel when they write about mental illness and thoughtfully chewed over the idea of creating transgender characters to add to what’s sort of a preexisting universe. They rolled their eyes at a video that was circulating in which Teen Wolf actors were placed on the spot and asked to read fan fiction aloud for yuks, shrugging it off as a cheap effort to make actors uncomfortable on camera and get them to dump on their own fans.”

YEAH LINDA, YEAH FANFICTION, ETC ETC.

Q

yugichrist asked:

hey you know those photos of trees where it looks like they have a big round human ASS, that's a tree disease right, what's it called

A

homohustle:

if it’s what I’m thinking of, those are called Burls if you’re murrican or Burrs if you’re from pretty much literally anywhere else

It’s less of a disease in itself and more like a sign of a disease.  Usually fungal infections fuck up the tree growth and cause them

People actually steal them sometimes because some of them are super valuable.  They make really cool looking carved stuff and are really dense.

what the fuck. they just chop the ass right off a tree and sell it to the tree ass black market. that’s brutal

That’s… Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate.

People have actually been arrested for it and redwood national park gets blocked off at night because people stealing and selling tree ass on the black market is such a big problem

requesting backup for a 376 in process, that’s right we’ve got a tree ass jacker here

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong. 
"When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said. 
"Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked. 
“Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.

Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.
And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.

Some of you may remember that a few months ago I came across a big toad in my driveway that had bit bitten in the eye (most likely by a snake). I took her into rehabilitate her in my studio, and over the course of a few weeks cleaned her eye (not really ever shown because it was basically a bloody meat bubble), and retaught her how to eat and hunt with the use of one eye. When she looked healthy and healed enough to be released, I let her go about a mile and a half down the road and into some deep woods. Last night I see another big toad in the driveway in the same place where she was first attacked (not uncommon; it is a popular toad hangout spot), and pick her up to look at her, and it turned out that it was the same toad, She came all the way back up to her old stomping ground. She is still super chill when I pick her up and has the same identifying bumps on her back. 
While she is still blind in one eye, her eye is fully healed as a clear mass without a pupil. Mom grabbed some quick photos of her, and I let her go where I found her. 
It made my day seeing an animal I helped doing so well in the wild
