The industry insider confirmed that the Black Widow character is widely considered “unusable” within the toy industry. “She has a tight black outfit. Our main customer is concerned with ‘family values,’” said the insider.

That's what this comes down to, really.  Because you know who that main customer is?  Wal-Mart.  They're the ones who dictate the toy market, because the toy manufacturers are all desperate to lose their business.  

Why can't we have Rey, Gamora, or Black Widow?

Wal-Mart.

If we want better female representation in our toys, we don't need to be pestering Target (who are largely responsible for what progress has been made), or even Hasbro.  We need to go right to the evil little Alabamian source.

Spread this far and wide: If you want to see these characters get their due, carpet-bomb Wal-Mart with demandsthat they make c... more »

Well, here's a weirdly fascinating way to kill some time.  They've divided up the entire planet into 3x3m squares indicated by a unique combination of three words.  I have some doubts to as to the utility of such a project, but it's kind of fascinating to look through and see what places are assigned what combinations.

So far, my favorites are that my childhood bedroom is words.display.upon, and the entrance to the Enchanted Tiki Room is reading.worker.skims.

And yes, of course I found this on Tumblr.

Welp.

Apparently it would be cheaper to just get a new engine than to take the damn thing apart to get to the bits that are broken.  I really really really was hoping that it could hold out for another few months, maybe even a year, so that I could afford to buy the Britmobile (aka a Union Jack Mini Cooper).  But alas, things never work out the way one would like.

The good news is that the husbandperson is amenable to getting me to and from work for a few weeks while we figure out our next move, which right now is looking like seeing what we can get for trade-in and buying something more reliable.  (The thought has crossed my mind of making that a permanent arrangement, but there are way too many variables for dropping to one car to be viable.)  I'll admit, it would be nice to have a car that's not old enough to legally drive itself.  Although I've never had a carpaym... more »

Jarvis the Jag has not liked starting up in this cold weather, and I could barely get the engine to crank yesterday.  Since I have a chiropractor appointment this morning, I made a point to pull him into the garage yesterday and plug the battery into the trickle charger.

Go down this morning (early, thankfully, because the plan was to get breakfast at Starbucks and chill for a bit) and start him up.  The engine turns over beautifully and then immediately turns off.  I figure maybe the key slipped or something, so I turn it off and try again.

The charity pickup thing got delayed from last week to this week.  Which is great, because it turned out that my brilliant idea to buy the rest of the entertainment center (for the additional storage, since we're losing the old entertainment center in the current office) took up most of our weekend.

Last week I was actually quite productive by putting on the Hamilton soundtrack and adulting for the duration, but it turns out that fucker is LONG, and I'm getting a late start today due to sleeping like shit.  So I might find something shorter to propel me along, or just put some ska on the Chromecast and see how long I can run.  Although the nice thing about having a soundtrack instead of just a playlist was that it was a set interval, so I could keep pushing myself through longer rather than looking for an excuse to crap out early.  I don't know, we'll see.

Sigh.

I've been kind of failing with planning out this whole entertainment center concept. We're doing one of the modular ones from Ikea, and part of why we went this way was so that we could have someplace to display the Lego Helicarrier.

What I failed to do, naturally, was to measure the damn thing. And I clearly forgot how much of a beast it is.

I did a whole lot of adulting yesterday.  Like, I got stuff ready for donating and took the glass for recycling and bought furniture and went back to exchange the furniture because I fucked up what we needed and all that shit.

So now I just kinda want to play video games for a while.  But I have to do ZOMG laundry and more donation stuff and get the e-waste together and all sorts of other adulting.  And I don't wanna.

I've been trading stuff in at Vintage Stock (mostly extra Infinity stuff that I can't unload on eBay) and had accumulated quite a bit of credit, enough to get the Infinity 3.0 starter kit. Unfortunately, they didn't have the one for PS3.

But they did have this keyblade for the same price. I just couldn't pass it up. Now we need to find a Gunblade for the husbandperson, and they will hang on the wall together as in days of old.

Well, this is gonna be quite a weekend!

The biggest thing hovering over my head is the appointment we have for a charity pickup on Friday morning.  The husbandperson did some digging and decided that a donation was the best way to get rid of the various bits of furniture that are clogging up the house (because we don't have enough stuff to make a garage sale profitable and Craigslist is so hit or miss).  It'll be nice to clear up some space, and more critically, it's a major component of our plan to transition from the current configuration of cat's room/office/library to office/library/game room.

So my main goal for the next couple of days is finding all the little stuff and getting it down to the garage, and unearthing the furniture dolly for the big stuff.  (Too bad I don't know any superheroes I can enlist for the old entertainment center.)  I'm reallyloo... more »

I rewatched this movie a while back and it has held up... not well.  It's still gorgeous, though.

You know, I've been mulling over a blog post about the whole #OscarsSoWhite thing and what's really the cause of the problem.  (It mainly comes down to the kinds of movies that are getting made and the tendency of the Academy to use the awards to honor whole careers rather than individual roles.)  And one of the things that I was planning on discussing was how the Academy can only really combat the issue by addressing its own aging white male demographics, like by proactively seeking out more diverse membership and getting rid of some of these old dudes who are most likely just reflexively voting for the names they recognize because they don't really watch movies anymore.

And then AMPAS had to go and steal my thunder by announcing that they're implementing a new recruitment program and reviewing and revoking voting rights of members who are no longer active in the industry.more »

Jerks.

But seriously, this is fantastic news.  It doesn't necessarily address some of the other reasons that this sort of thing keeps happening, like the fact that so many prestige films have mostly white casts, but it's a concrete step towards real change, rather than just a token ass-covering.  It will also hopefully allow for a shift in the kinds of movies that get honored, so they can stop fellating themselves over the sort of supposedly Important movies that no one actually sees or cares about.___

Friday is our game night, so we usually pick up something from a restaurant for dinner on our way over.  But tonight no one is feeling particularly hungry, so we decided to just get some snacks instead of a real meal.

Naturally, I dispatched my friend to the grocery store with this.

The industry insider confirmed that the Black Widow character is widely considered “unusable” within the toy industry. “She has a tight black outfit. Our main customer is concerned with ‘family values,’” said the insider.

That's what this comes down to, really.  Because you know who that main customer is?  Wal-Mart.  They're the ones who dictate the toy market, because the toy manufacturers are all desperate to lose their business.  

Why can't we have Rey, Gamora, or Black Widow?

Wal-Mart.

If we want better female representation in our toys, we don't need to be pestering Target (who are largely responsible for what progress has been made), or even Hasbro.  We need to go right to the evil little Alabamian source.

That is some incredible underwater photography.  And for a good cause!

Shark Shepherds
These incredible images are NOT a photoshopped or graphic artist drawings - they're real photos taken underwater with live wild sharks.

Inspired to realise awareness to help protect sharks, photographer Von Wong pulled together a crew of divers in Fiji as well as in impressive array of underwater photography equipment and a champion freediver to be the model in a custom-made gown.

In his video https://youtu.be/shXWj8a4DmA (linked in the article http://www.vonwong.com/blog/sharkshepherd) Von Wong talks about how sharks are a vital part in the ocean's ecosystem, effectively the Shepherds of the oceans. But they need our protection - without sharks, the ocean ecosystem breaks down, and in turn, the ecosystems of the planet break down.
Thus the project www.sharkshepherd.com

Von Wong says Sharks are almost always depicted as menacing and terrifying, yet it is humans that are responsible for killing them in the millions just to make soup. I wanted to create a series of images that would help break those stereotypes and show that it is possible for us to co-exist together in perfect harmony

For each and every shot we would weigh down Amber Bourke, our champion freediver, onto the perfectly lit rock formation where light was falling. The ethereal white dress, designed specifically for this shoot by Ali Charisma, would have to be carefully placed so that it would flow beautifully into the image. When all was finally in position, we would hand over the three-piece plastic shepherds crook to amber and begin the wait.
Over the course of three days, we waited over six hours.

Though popular media would tell you that sharks come swarming at the slightest scent of blood, death and suffering, our experience with them was the complete opposite.
Similar to squirrels at a park, the white tipped reef sharks would hover around us curiously only to scamper off if anyone got too close.

Shark facts:
- Sharks are a keystone species and are responsible for the health of ocean ecosystems. They eliminate the weak, the diseased and the dead, maintaining the ecological balance and the future health of the ocean.
- Every year, tens of millions of sharks are killed by humans. On average, sharks kill less than 10 people a year.  
- Currently, shark ecotourism brings almost 1 Billion US worldwide, and is expected to grow 2 fold in the next 20 years.
- There are over 450 species of sharks, most cause no harm to humans.

Perhaps, rather than trying to sanitize the world for their children, parents could instead teach their children how to live in it by, you know, giving them context.

What if this mom had a conversation with her son about violence and sex and nudity (and when cursing is or isn’t allowed) before seeing the movie, preparing the kid for what he’s going to see? Or, you know, just didn’t take him to see it, waiting until he’s older to watch it on Netflix or Blu-ray? Either way, it’s a parent’s job to decide what their child should see or shouldn’t see. It’s not the necessarily the job of creators to tailor already-created work to be child-appropriate.

A billion times this.  Look, I was a pint-sized adult who was consuming content way ahead of my age level, so I totally understood the desire to see stuff that was not kid-appropriate.  (I wasn't allowed to see Air ForceOne with the rest... more »

A billion times this.  Look, I was a pint-sized adult who was consuming content way ahead of my age level, so I totally understood the desire to see stuff that was not kid-appropriate.  (I wasn't allowed to see Air Force One with the rest of the family when I was 11, and I was pissed.)  But my mom, you know, caught on to that fact, and started taking me to R-rated movies when I was 12 or 13.  We talked about them afterward, and I quickly learned that an R rating was often more about being a Serious Adult Movie than about the actual content.  I even got to see several movies for which they were being extremely strict about allowing under-17s in because I was accompanied by a parent.  'Cuz, you know, that's what the rating means.

I hate hate hate when other people are expected to bend their consumption around the fact that some parents can't be bothered to get involved with their kids' lives.  No wonder we've got a generation of entitled little twits.___
