apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
It annoys me when the women’s version of a man’s costume just has the belly bared, but… let’s be real, Gambit would totally do it.
“Women of Power is Warsaw-based photographer Katarzyna Majak’s series celebrating the spiritual women living in Poland. Ranging in ages 30-80, Majak’s subjects are modern-day witches, healers, Wiccans, Druids, spell casters and visionaries, channeling the pagan and shamanic beliefs of their ancestors. Intrigued by these unconventional spiritual paths existing within the predominantly Catholic country, Majak traveled throughout her native land collecting portraits and stories from 29 women. Her resulting images catalog a variety of wise and powerful practitioners, standing solid with their talismans and tokens of choice.” (x)

Oso WA, 2014
I saw with much joy that the last missing Oso resident was found this week.
Some of the hardest yet most emotionally fulfilling aspects of my job was the time I spent in the company of the Snohomish Search & Rescue, Medical Examiners, volunteers, firefighters, National Guard, and the various law enforcement agencies who came together in the wake of this tragedy.
Let Harmony Find Them.
It’s a cute little thing though.
Sometimes it is hard to remember that owls are incredibly dangerous predators seen by cultures throughout the world as ill omens. Especially when they look like toasted marshmallows.
My boss once described them as flying pillows filled with seething hatred.
Further confirming that owls are the avian equivalent of cats.

IQALUIT, Nunavut — A head of cabbage for $20. Fifteen bucks for a small bag of apples.
A case of ginger ale: $82.
Fed up and frustrated by sky-high food prices and concerned over widespread hunger in their communities, thousands of Inuit have spent weeks posting pictures and price tags from their local grocery stores to a Facebook site called Feed My Family.
WHAT IN THE FUCK? This shit is not okay.

Reblogging for the extra articles.
Also… I might show up to this protest and support them.
Pay attention to this stuff, please, followers who haven’t heard about this! This kind of thing is completely erased in news media.
This is really fucking important.
This is why I don’t respect anyone who blindly supports the anti-sealing protestors. Because for a lot of people, it’s the only affordable option.
It’s not just Iqaluit. In Nain, Labrador this problem has been going on for ages and nobody does anything about it. $47 for a ham and $17 for a block of cheese. In Rigolet, Labrador, a loaf of bread costs $7. Here’s another picture of an Iqaluit food price changing before your very eyes.
The NNCP is starving people, reducing their food choices, and keeping people on EI poor. This is so, so wrong.
How can we help? I joined the group and checked out the website, but I didn’t see anything that can be actively done (other than raising awareness, which, of course, is great).
Excellent question! If you read through the group (which is here, for anyone who missed it), there are people talking about some ways to help.
- Look at the latest news on the Feeding My Family website to see what the priorities are and how you might be able to help.
- If you’re Canadian, call your local MP and ask to discuss this issue and express your concern.
- Look up ways to support putting pressure onto airlines to charge fair rates (a $1000 plane ticket should be from one coast to the other, not a few hundred miles).
- Research and learn what you can about food sustainability. For a start, how about learning square foot/metre (French intensive) gardening or container gardening and starting to practice it yourself? Share these techniques with friends and family. Get good at it so you can teach them to others who have poor food security in your own area.
- For the love of God, stop signing “anti-sealing”/”anti-hunting” petitions and supporting Greenpeace’s actions without understanding the complicated, nuanced situation in the North.
- Watch the FB group, because people there mention direct donations and ways to help the organizations actually on the ground there.
- For example, one person is starting up a donation project/fundraiser.
- Look at what organizations like FoodShare are doing and support them.
There is so much to be done. Sharing news articles and stories, lists of resources, donation and fundraising pages, and knowledge about food security is critical, but there’s a lot more work of all sorts.
THIS IS AMAZING

Clancy Brown as John Danziger (Earth 2)
A very serious Welcome to Night Vale magical girl AU. (The gratuitous Japanese in the title translates to “pretty-boy speaker/orator”.)
When Cecil Palmer was just fifteen years old, he met a talking (and floating) cat who told him he had special powers…and that it was his solemn duty to use them to defend Night Vale against the ancient menace of Desert Bluffs. In return, he gets a magical self-cleaning frilly outfit — absolutely free!
Dana, his future successor, is currently an enzetsuka-in-training as Sailor Chibi-Voice. Her Shining Cell Phone Wand is a few power-ups away from matching the size of Cecil’s Eternal Welcoming Broadcast Scepter, but it still packs a punch.
Carlos…doesn’t know what the hell is going on. He keeps having these mysterious blackouts, and one day he manages to catch one on videotape, and apparently he’s been transforming into some fancy outfit with a lab coat and a mask before running off? Could he be that vigilante who keeps appearing at Sailor Voice’s battles, delivering flowery one-liners, and throwing test tubes to distract the monsters just in the nick of time?
Cecil, meanwhile, has a dilemma. You see, that handsome scientist he keeps accidentally bumping into around town is so beautiful, and has perfect hair…but the totally-dreamy Lab Coat Mask, who always has his back when he’s Sailor Voice, also has perfect hair. How will he ever choose between them?
(…If anybody else wants to write this, or draw more of this, or do anything with this, you will be showered with adulation. Just want to throw that out there.)
Gloria, plant goddess edition. Heavily inspired by Poison Ivy, specifically the Arkhamverse version.
