When I’m dating a man I’m no longer bisexual

Just like when I’m at home, I’m no longer employed

Or when I’m not studying I’m no longer a student.

Mmm object impermanency

Milky Way above Atacama Salt Lagoon

Galaxies, stars, and a serene reflecting pool combine to create this memorable land and skyscape.

Image Credit & Copyright: Alex Tudorica (AIfA, U. Bonn)

The featured panorama is a 12-image mosaic taken last month from the Salar de Atacama salt flat in northern Chile. The calm water is Laguna Cejar, a salty lagoon featuring a large central sinkhole. On the image left, the astrophotographer’s fiancee is seen capturing the same photogenic scene.

The night sky is lit up with countless stars, the Large and Small Magellanic Cloud galaxies on the left, and the band of our Milky Way galaxy running diagonally up the right. The Milky Way may appear to be causing havoc at the horizon, but those are just the normal lights of a nearby town.

‘DEADPOOL’ MOVIE GETS GO-AHEAD AT FOX; WILL RYAN REYNOLDS FINALLY MAKE A DECENT COMICS MOVIE?
By Andrew Wheeler
Deadpool lives. Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth will finally get his own solo movie after years in production limbo according to an announcement by Twentieth Century Fox, which has scheduled the picture for a February 2016 release — on Valentine’s Day weekend, no less. Deadpool is love.
Tim Miller is attached to direct, and Ryan Reynolds is expected to reprise his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though no official deal has been announced. Fox also pushed back its Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four movie from June 19th 2015 to August 7th, to cover for a Michael Fassbender Assassin’s Creed movie that’s been bumped off the calendar due to production delays.
The presence of Miller at the helm on Deadpool is good news for anyone who enjoyed the test footage that leaked back in July. That footage was created by Miller and Reynolds back in 2012 in an effort to revive interest in the dormant project. It didn’t have the desired effect at the time, but the cleverly timed leak in the aftermath of San Diego Comic-Con seems to have had more impact.

I wonder if the success of the similarly irreverent Guardians of the Galaxy had anything to do with Fox’s announcement? Doubtless the X-Men franchise’s resuscitation with Days of Future Past and the internet’s eager reaction to the test footage also helped, but I imagine the fact that GotG made more money than any other movie (domestically) so far this year probably didn’t hurt.

My writing for Paizo got a smile and a nod from Feministing.

Now to get my ass in gear and add some trans men and nonbinary folk…

Congrats, and thank you so much for all your work! Now though, I’m wondering: in what ways exactly do other Harrow decks mimic the Rae clan one?

In olden days, every harrower carfted their own deck, or added to their family deck as they needed to. Because each card is built around mythology and fables, each different clans mythology meant that each clan’s harrower had a unique deck, and even cards made around the same story might employ different symbolism. The basic notion of nine alignments and six suits remained the same, but the rest could be pretty flexible.

Ever since Sonnorae bound her family deck to the outer planes, though, harrow cards that weren’t a part of her family’s deck have a strange habit of going missing or meeting strange accidents, replaced by cards from the Rae deck—the so-called deck of Harrowed Tales—penned in the same style as the rest of the deck they join. There’s no flashy BAMF moment where one card becomes another, it just sort of happens quietly when no one checks on a deck in a while.

So, there’s not much diversity in the art styles?

No, there is absolutely a lot of variety in the art style. Just not in the deck makeup.

Text 18 Sep 8 notes Stan Lee & John Buscema on Social Issues in Comics

There’s been a lot of talk recently about racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination in comics (and video games) recently. There’s also been some amount of talk as to whether this is all overblown or out of place. I submit, based on the historical record, that is not.

In 1969, Stan Lee and John Buscema had this following exchange with a fan who was disheartened by the amount of politics finding their way into comics.

Dear Stan and John,

I really don’t like writing this letter, but I believe it will benefit you more than hurt you. There has been a recent trend by Marvel to put the Negro in the spotlight (i.e., the Black Panther, Joe Robertson, Centurius). I’m all for it, but when you start your own civil rights protest, well, I’m against that.

I’m talking about the recent SILVER SURFER #5. The part I didn’t like was when the Surfer asked why Al Harper helped him. The reply was “Mebbe it’s ‘cause I know how it feels to be pushed around!” That was uncalled for! For months you’ve been knocking “us” (you know who I mean). It sounds as if we were all big, bad murderers who liked hurting minorities. What about the Chinese, Mexican, Jewish, Irish or Catholic minorities? In many parts of the world, they are suffering, too. So how about letting up?

I’m not a racist, just a concerned Marvelite who doesn’t want his favorite comic company to be ruined by something that really doesn’t concern you as comic publishers.

Tim Sullivan​

This was Stan and John’s response:

But, such matters as racism and equality do concern us, Tim - not just as comic-mag artists and writers and publishers, but as human beings.

Certainly it’s never been our intention to portray all or even most, white Americans as hard-core bigots or screaming racists. Maybe it’s just that we think that many people in this land of the free have too long turned their backs or averted their eyes to the more unpleasant thing that are going on every day. Maybe we felt we could do something - even within the relatively humble format of what used to be called a ‘comic book’ - to change things just a bit for the better.

If we fail, let’s just say that we’d at least like to have it said of us that - we tried.

The idea that social criticism within and of comics is a new trend is really, when you look at the facts, kind of patently false.

Quote 17 Sep 5,512 notes
I know a lot of creative people and perhaps by correlation I know a lot of people who struggle with depression. They have told me (and they’ve told the world) how depression sits there, implacable, and drains the color out of the world until no success or joy matters. I believe them, and it becomes increasingly evident that no matter who you are or what you’ve achieved, that depression is a good liar and can make you believe none of it matters.
 
I know and love too many people with depression to believe that it’s something that’s shameful to talk about or to acknowledge. I want them alive and I want them here with us. If you have depression I want you alive and here with us. Don’t let the moment take you. Don’t be afraid to get help. The people who love you want you here. Believe it.
—
