What I'm wondering is
chrc: Doesn’t the Joker flip out seeing the Red Hood? *I’ve never actually read anything with the Red Hood in it besides the Killing Joke* If I remember right, he finds it hilarious. Especially after learning the new Red Hood is Jason Todd. I might be misremembering though.
tessen: g0ggles: The Nice Guy thing feels like a product of a person who plays dating sims and thinks that is how real life works Women are not vaults of sex locked with a password required They’re not WoW raid bosses with a specific strategy of “stack on this spot, let off the DPS at 2:30, then go full on at 3:00” They’re not pets that you feed food to earn their trust then teach tricks to ...
Dear Tumblr Staff,
ghost-bustier: rangerkimmy: fallofthepoets: fairbourne: embraceyourinnerdramaqueen: You may take away our unlimited asking and spoil our fun. We will not complain. much. You may limit the amount of submissions we can send per hour. that’s cool too, we can turn the other cheek and soldier on. You can even limit the amount of people we can follow per hour. that’s okay. we can wait to add...
Gender Pronoun Rant
mercurialmalcontent: sockruse: snazzycookies: YES I AM AWARE THAT THE PRONON “THEY” WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO BE STRICTLY PLURAL. I HAVE AN ENGLISH DEGREE. However, considering the fact that the English language lacks a gender/neutral pronoun in the third person (which is just plain silly, since the first person “I” and the second person “you” are gender neutral, why all of a sudden in...
And the theorycrafting stream is starting! There may be some silly stuff streamed alongside, but mostly this is to try and figure out Eps 1-4 before moving to Ep5. http://www.livestream.com/idran
The stream for Umineko theorycrafting will begin in 30 minutes, as usual! Remember, today there will not be a stream of the game, but rather just a discussion on theories about the first four episodes. Still, I hope to see folks there anyway! :D
Ep 4 Part 6 Dossier
Most of the episode is through now, with only three dossiers left after this one. I should also say now, for those that would be otherwise showing up: this week, we will not be moving on to Episode 5, I’m afraid. Instead, as last time, this week’s Sunday stream will be a theorycrafting day, much as it was between seasons when I streamed Higurashi. We’ll chat about what’s...
Ep 4 Part 5 Dossier
So, Ep 4 has officially been finished in the stream, as I thought might happen. But I still need to get these out before I start in on Ep 5, so let’s continue on! The episode continues with a brief conversation where Beatrice explains that it was Gaap that inspired this form of death. Once that’s clarified, though, we jump elsewhere, where Rosa awakens somewhere unidentified; a...

Almost forgot the stream announcement! It’ll be happening as usual today, no earlier than 12:30 PM EST/5:30 PM GMT, no later than 12:50/5:50 PM. I’ll be getting the pre-show started shortly, so feel free to pop in any time! http://www.livestream.com/idran
Nuclear Explosions Since 1945 →
wigmund: aeromachia: helala: historical-nonfiction: This is a map of the world, showing all the nuclear explosions from 1945 onwards. It is color-coded, to scale, and differentiates between atmospheric and underground/underwater detonations. Honestly, I don’t know how the world still exists, but hey, I’m glad it is. Whoa. jesus fuck, look how small the circles for Hiroshima and...
Ep 4 Part 4 Dossier
Last dossier, we endured Ange’s suffering at the hands of her classmates. Though those flashbacks are over (for now at least), the pain continues with Alliance of the Golden Witch! We jump back to Maria before Episode 3, where she is reassuring Sakutaro after the events that happened to Ange - apparently when Ange was calling her forth to talk to her, she was literally calling her forth...

neverthehurricane: An incomplete list of why that argument is flawed: Art can be racist. We wouldn’t have a western canon, or any art canon for that matter, if we hadn’t already acknowledged that years ago. Racism doesn’t negate something from being art and art doesn’t negate something from being racist. This is not a platform worth arguing on. Art has the power and scope to affect society...

"What's your favorite vegetable?"
vanillavalerian: Pizza. Jesus Christ americans… I know I already posted on this, but I just have to clear it up, because it’s stupid in an entirely different way than how people keep saying it is stupid. Congress did not rule that pizza was now classified as a vegetable. What happened was the Republican block, under pressure from ConAgra and Schwan - both frozen food manufacturers...
ghost-bustier: Woops that was supposed to be a private reply. Oh well, its not like there was anything especially sensitive about it. MY PRIVACY ;_; RUINED FOREVER FINE, JAZAKA IS PURPLE NOW
Pizza is a vegetable according to Congress →
wigmund: They also have bravely fought off the Obama Administration’s horrible efforts to make the School Lunch Program in the US healthier for students. No, it’s the tomato sauce that was classified as a vegetable, not the pizza; the Republicans under lobbyist pressure managed to get 2 tbsp or more of tomato paste or sauce classified as a vegetable, which happens to include the usual...

Ep 4 Part 3 Dossier
We’ve got a lot to get through, and we haven’t even hit the meat of the episode yet, so let’s continue in our summary of Episode Four, Alliance of the Golden Witch! Back in 1998, Ange has started her investigation, interviewing an expert on the occult who had appraised the books in Kinzo’s collection in April of 1987 when Eva put them up for auction; a collection which...

Ep 4 Part 2 Dossier
So it’s been a while for these, but my workload’s cleared up some, so I’m going to try burning through my backlog before Sunday. I’ve got 7 episodes’-worth to get posted - Ep4 certainly seems longer than the previous ones, but at least I didn’t wrap up before I could get through these as promised! So let’s continue on into part 2 of Alliance of the...
Today’s Umineko stream’ll be starting same as usual, between 12:30 and 1 PM EST. I’ll be streaming the usual preshow fairly soon; I hope to see people there! http://www.livestream.com/idran

Election Day 2011 Results
wigmund: Congratulations to Ohio for getting rid of that Union-busting law. Congrats to Maine for allowing same-day voter registration. From the looks of it, Mississippi may be sensible and reject the Personhood Amendment but less than 20% of the precincts are reporting in so far. Also, the Democrat is currently ahead in the Governor’s race. Re-allowing, it should be specified; it’s...
A Public Service Message
guavi: I noticed some people like to put “/” in tags. Particularly when it comes to pairings. I would like to point out that putting a slash in your tag, thanks to URL syntax, essentially breaks the tag; rendering it unsearchable, untrackable, and generally useless. It is probably in everyone’s best interest if you tag in some other form. : ]
Umineko will be streamed as usual today in about 10 minutes, no earlier than 12:30 EST/5:30 GMT! Preshow will start soon; hope to see people there :D http://www.livestream.com/idran
chrc: Lord English entered the Troll’s universe when Doc Scratch died, right? Or well, when the universe died… And he took over Scratch’s body… who’s he t… wait no, they’re the same universe… uhh… so he’s not going to take over Bec Noir / Mistress / Jade? I think the difference might be: Doc Scratch was always a perfect host.
