Uh…… you mean like this?

wow. let it be known that tumblr legitimately changed my opinion on something today.

I’m sorry but is there an advert about toilet paper in there. They are legitimately trying to sex up toilet paper.

PBS Idea Channel takes on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and whether or not it was ‘worth’ it. (TLDR: it did.)

Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, a YouTube video series examining gender tropes in video games. The series was financed via crowdfunding, and acquired notoriety when its Kickstarter campaign triggered a wave of sexist harassment against Sarkeesian.

When Sarkeesian raised nearly $160,000 using Kickstarter, there was an immediate backlash from members of the gaming and internet communities. Commenters on her YouTube and Facebook pages wrote hateful comments, threats of violence, and death threats.

A game that appeared on popular Flash game website Newgrounds allowed players to virtually assault Sarkeesian by clicking on her face, effectively “beating her up.” As players continued to click the picture, scars, bruises, and lacerations would appear on a photograph of Sarkeesian,

On August 26th, Sarkeesian received a series of graphic threats [trigger warning: rape, violence, sexist slurs] as seen here.

You can show your support of Anita Sarkeesian by donating to her organization, Feminist Frequency, by clicking here.

Feminist Frequency is a 501(c)3 non profit charity, so all donations are tax-deductible.

I can’t donate at the moment, as I am on the verge of eviction, but I heartily recommend watching her series and supporting her.

Ah, remember when Bruce Willis tried to have a singing career?

"Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is in talks to bring his stage Hamlet to the screen. The play begins performances at the Barbican next year, and negotiations for it to be filmed live and shown in cinemas through National Theatre Live for one night are well advanced.
The actor, along with the production’s director Lyndsey Turner and producer Sonia Friedman, has spent more than a year ensuring that this will be a ‘people’s Hamlet’.
‘I felt very strongly that as wide an audience as possible should have access to it,’ Cumberbatch told me.
The Barbican’s allocation of seats for the entire 12-week run, which starts on August 5 next year, have been snapped up already.
But there will be 100 seats available per performance. ‘They will be sprinkled throughout the house … they’re not behind pillars,’ the 38-year-old joked.
He said that he and Ms Turner were eager to make their Hamlet as ‘fresh’ as possible, ‘like a new play that just landed as a pdf in someone’s computer inbox at the Royal Court’, as he described it.
‘We want to escape the idea that it has been done before, and we’re looking at the whole play — not just the eponymous hero.’
Benedict is a thespian polymath. There’s no role he cannot take on.
We had met to discuss another of his projects: a towering portrait — one of the great performances of the year — of Alan Turing, the man who helped break the Nazi’s Enigma code, in the film The Imitation Game.
Watching the movie, I was struck by his approach to Turing: the way he grasped and captured the man, not just the cliched genius. The film is all the more heartbreaking because of it.
The Imitation Game shows how the boundaries of class and status were broken by the disparate group gathered at Bletchley Park.
‘That was an incredible, rag-tag group of brave, stoic, quiet heroes,’ Cumberbatch marvelled.
‘I say rag-tag, in the sense that they were mathematicians, physicists, crossword enthusiasts … really anyone who had an intellect and a prowess that might help solve this puzzle.
‘Turing may have had eccentric behaviour; he may have had certain tropes of being different, but this was a whole team of “different” people, brought together in a crisis.’
The star said that Turing was guileless about his sexuality. ‘When he was arrested by the police he told them outright that he’d had a sexual relationship with another man.
‘He just gave them the information, and the sad thing was that he’d been with a rent boy. He’d never had a stable relationship’.’ [x]

PBS is making series 3 of Sherlock available for free online viewing (for American viewers) through Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014, 11:59pm ET. Even if you have it in another fashion, you might want to consider watching it (even by putting it on in the background) in order to ramp up their numbers.

So much implied by this. 

"The difference with a single player game is that in the same way you lose yourself in a good novel, you can lose yourself in a single player story. You see it in all these games, where you can fill your house with turnips or decorate your armor with a dragon skull. It lets you go inside for a little while and, well, not hermit up necessarily, but be in another place and time for a while. It is escapism and you can’t really have that when ‘BonerLord247’ goes running past you in the middle of a raid."

He is one fabulous fucker

Seriously? Standing on rocks in the wildlands and pointing dashingly into the distance? He could not get any more fucking Byronic unless he were just coming away from a vicious duel that he only narrowly won, literally tugging Jane Eyre to an unholy altar with one hand and mainlining strong spirits with the other whilst silhouetted against the battlements of a burning manor house.
After a vicious duel. 

God bless this fandom.

NO BIG DEAL JUST ME MEETING MARTIN FREEMAN AND HIM SIGNING MY STUFF AND HIM LOOKING AT ME AND HIM TALKING TO ME

Lucky lady. When I got his autograph (twice - one was for a friend), he was pretty much rushing through it. I didn’t want to feel bad, because at least I got an autograph, but I am jealous ;-).

funding request

Hey, all - I hate to do this, but I just got notice to pay my rent or be evicted in three days.

I just graduated with my master’s degree in July, and have been looking for work ever since. I am short about $500 to pay August’s rent. If you can help me, please consider visiting my Tip Jar (via PayPal).
