Altair/Desmond Necromancer Master Altair unintentionally rescues a boy from execution. The charge? Witchcraft.
Yoo Jae-myung, animation director of The Legend of Korra, discusses Nickelodeons initial hesitancy to accept Mike and Bryans proposal of the show… and Korra. [Cont.]
“When you take a look at protagonists in American animations, they are male. There are rarely any female protagonists.
The creators and our studio demanded Nickelodeon that they change their mind since we had already decided on a female character with an androgynous appeal.
We wouldn’t take no for an answer and we finally got their approval.
It’s rare, having a a heroine, right?”
“Maybe that’s why it became so popular.”
“I’m not sure. Everyone had doubts and was worried at first. But as the series gained more popularity, we realized that having heroines could actually work.”

well you never know when this might come in handy.
Ahh I don’t know if I’ve reblogged it before but here’s the thing I was talking about, Edgey!
- “We’re your family, we’re allowed to make fun of you”
- “Come on, it’s just a joke”
- “toughen up and stop being a baby”
- “We’re just teasing”
BULLYING IS BULLYING NO MATTER WHO IT COMES FROM.
IT JUST HURTS A FUCKLOAD A LOT MORE WHEN ITS COMING FROM PEOPLE YOU TRUST
To the men who have told me that I’m overreacting and “it’s the 21st century women are equal now”
Note that the “women make only 77.5 cents for every dollar that men earn” statistic applies only to white women. Women of color make significantly less.
- Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
- Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Reverse gender stereotypes at the gym
Aaahhhh get on my dash you amusing thing you.
I kinda love it
this is actually great from an acting perspective.
the actors actually played the opposite gender instead of just relying on stereotypes (ironically enough) to portray that they were, in fact, the opposite gender. Usually if you tell a guy to act like a girl, he begins playing by the homosexual stereotype (faking a lisp, popping the hip, etc.) and while it accentuates femininity, it’s really uncomfortable and forced, making it just seem like he’s playing a stereotype instead of the actual gender. And girls will do this too; being told to play a male and instead just deepening the voice and say “dude” and “bro” a lot (although these are more common among modern practices).
The males played up femininity without coming off as a forced stereotype and the females played up masculinity and machismo without forcing their performance.
also the video is funny and I kind of forgot the point I was making.

It wasn’t always an exact science; necromancy that was. Even a master of the dead, dying and undying, such as Altair couldn’t make such an inexact science exact.
What happens when you give a Mario piano score to someone who’s never heard it in his life?
Almost every self-proclaimed ragtime pianist I’ve ever met has been a total sightreading genius. I guess it’s also a thing that they have tons of experience having people throw them music and playing it right then and there.
what is this sorcery sadfkljalksdjf
Oh that’s so cute it’s completely different!!! ;u;
This Ragtime Mario Theme is my new favorite version.
Super Mario World Ragtime? Fuck yeah.
•A woman in Utah gave birth to twins. When one was stillborn, she was arrested and charged with criminal homicide based on the claim that her decision to delay cesarean surgery was the cause of the stillbirth.
•After a hearing that lasted less than a day, a court issued an order requiring a critically-ill pregnant woman in Washington, D.C. to undergo cesarean surgery over her objections. Neither she nor her baby survived.
•A judge in Ohio kept a woman imprisoned to prevent her from having an abortion.
•A woman in Oregon who did not comply with a doctor’s recommendation to have additional testing for gestational diabetes was subjected to involuntary civil commitment. During her detention, the additional testing was never performed.
•A Louisiana woman was charged with murder and spent approximately a year in jail before her counsel was able to show that what was deemed a murder of a fetus or newborn was actually a miscarriage that resulted from medication given to her by a health care provider.
•In Texas, a pregnant woman who sometimes smoked marijuana to ease nausea and boost her appetite gave birth to healthy twins. She was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.
•A doctor in Wisconsin had concerns about a woman’s plans to have her birth attended by a midwife. As a result, a civil court order of protective custody for the woman’s fetus was obtained. The order authorized the sheriff’s department to take the woman into custody, transport her to a hospital, and subject her to involuntary testing and medical treatment.
Who could have seen this coming?
Reblogging as a reminder.
This what happens when women are seen as a means of production.
Japan > Everywhere else
This is Japan in a nutshell. Forget all the crazy stuff with the weird tv programs and the cosplaying—that’s just the outer shell that gets attention because it’s unusual. This, this is the beauty of the country. I’ve had little grandmothers chase me down because I dropped my shinkansen tickets. In amusement parks, the attendants do their upmost to get lost items (usually cardigans or kids’ shoes) back to the owners—before the owners even realize they’d lost said item(s). I’ve had complete strangers not only give my thorough directions but have offered to drive me to the place I needed to go.
It is so, so, so hard to go back to the States after you get the J-treatment. I mean, Japan has its downside (“What is this madness you call pizza???”), but the general attitudes of everyone—even the so-called hardcore yankees (two of whom who, on a blazing summer day, helped me find one of my schools when I was heinously lost in the labyrinth that is the neighborhood in which said school is located)—is the epitome of the mindset that I wish everyone would adopt. Because yelling at people gets you nowhere. And being able to empathize with people kinda helps make this country a really nice place to live in.
my first interaction with a person in japan (once i was past security) was at a noodle shop in the airport. i had just purchased cold udon and i went to sit down and eat it. this woman starts trying to get my attention and i turn to look. she does this gesture with her hand but i don’t know what she wants me to do.
she walked over, grabbed a bottle of sauce, and showed me i should pour it on the noodles. she let me do it, too. (they were great with the sauce).
this woman wanted me to enjoy the noodles the way they were supposed to to the point that she had to walk over to me. i was blown away by that.
