Cancel the Apocalypse

This started as an art blog. Still is when I can be arsed to post art of any sort. Posts are most frequently related to: Sci-fi and fantasy across all media from video games and films to tv shows foreign and domestic, my overwhelming leftist radical rage, and generalized snarky observation. I regularly get into discussions with my mutual-follow buddies and sometimes mumble about writing/the writing process.

So two of my friends are getting married apparently

And like they’ve been dating for I think seven or eight years so on that level it makes sense

But she’s polyamorous and he’s… not. Like he’s a grown-ass man capable of making his own decisions and he’s decided to stick with her even though she’s always dating like 2-3 other people and he’s never dating anyone else at all and wouldn’t even want to.

And it’s not my business but I kept sort of expecting this thing to kind of fizzle out or worse, explode, but it hasn’t for eight damn years and now they’re getting married

And it’s weird as hell to me

So I was playing SW:tOR on my Juggernaut, doing Flashpoints, when I pulled the one where you confront and fight Darth Malgus at the end. 

Which was really cool because (a) I’d never done that before and (b) it’s a good lore/rp thing for my Juggernaut to do. He’s got a lot in common with Malgus- the general style they both have (both of whom sort of are Anakin/Vader-esque but shh), the ventilators, the cybernetics, the build (both are big beefy juggernauts) and fighting style, the notion that the Empire is fucking stupid and should include aliens as equals (albeit for different reasons), even the whole gunslinger twi’lek girlfriend thing.

The difference being of course that he’s completely fucking evil and crazy on sith-juice to the point where hefridged his own lover like an asshole fuckwit. I can very much imagine Tascheter learning about that, taking Vette aside and saying something like "If you ever suspect I’m going down that path, I want you to put a blaster to my head while I’m asleep and put me down like a rabid animal."

I won the roll for two of the three conversation options so I even got to say what I wanted to say. The translated version is basically “No, Malgus, you’re not wrong, you’re just an asshole.

And then I tanked the fight, so I basically had his attention the whole time (except when he does his thing where he freezes everyone and picks on a random person for a bit but meh) and it felt nice and personal. It was a great mirror-match; lots of big powerful swings.

And the music playing in the background the whole time was Battle of the Heroes which just made it 10x more awesome on top of everything else. And I got the killing blow, with my big beatdown ability so it was very Luke vs. Vader in Jedi where he just batters down his defenses. Only I didn’t throw my lightsaber away, I buried it in Malgus’ stupid face.

And then I /spit on his corpse.

Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

“A Greek man walks into a tailor’s shop holding a pair of trousers. The tailor takes the pants and holds them up, turning to the man and he says “Euripides?”
“Yes,” the man responded, “Eumenides?””
I lose it every time I hear this. (via semperlapsuslinguae)

The first time I can remember being exposed to Star Wars was when I was like, 3 or 4 in an episode of Muppet Babies where Gonzo mentions something about “Musical aliens!” and they show a clip of the cantina band and it immediately peeked my interest.

I’d never seen or heard anything like it and couldn’t get it out of my head and kept asking my family what the musical aliens were from and no one understood what I was talking about except for my brother when I hummed him the tune and went, “Oh my god….. are you asking me to show you Star Wars?” Like, I had never seen him that happy and I don’t think I have since. 

I was and remain incredibly happy and proud of my fellow-nerd sister

This is gold I’m going to have to reblog, because I feel the same way dude.

On some level I think I’ve been underwhelmed by every bar I’ve ever gone into because it’s not the Mos Eisley Cantina.
