The armor is on eBay now for $22,300 (and rising, since it’s an auction); the money goes to a guinea pig rescue in northern Virginia.
So, who wants to dig deep, deep into their pockets for some guinea pig armor?
Oh hey, I updated my comic before Thursday for once.
Coelasquid’s read on the Hound is pretty much exactly the same as mine.
(The show is also disappointing because his ‘horrific’ scar doesn’t look much worse than a mild sunburn. Kind of like Gerard Butler in The Phantom of the Opera.)

I just stumbled across this banner on a random website:
This looks awfully familiar…
So Shepard is advertising for a game that is decidedly not Mass Effect, and has nothing to do with EA or Bioware.
Stay classy, pitiful browser-based game that is probably a scam.
i would watch this movie.
i should not be laughing this hard at this
If they did this as a live action I would be obligated to audition.
The problem is that your facial hair isn’t long, it’s widespread. You should be auditioning for the Wolfman.
Tumbling over the past year and a half has made me see the problems of gender roles that exist in media, but sometimes it gets to the point where I over analyze every single piece of television or film that I come across. (However this in no way means that I think feminist media criticism is wrong, or should be avoided!) Mostly I just over think everything.
I’ve thought about this a lot and I think the answer is MORE, and MORE DIVERSE female characters.
We’re used to having one or two female characters in a cast of mostly men, and hold them to a higher standard because of that. So all of feminism is resting on the shoulders of one female character - and that DOESN’T WORK. Because there isn’t one right way to be a woman.
If casts had more diversity of gender, we could have warrior women and non-warrior women, sexual women and non-sexual women, feminine and non-feminine, and mixtures of all of the above…all are completely legitimate ways to be a woman.
We’re used to seeing a lot of hypersexualized, scantily clad, one-dimensional stereotypes of women without stories or motives of their own. We respond by asking for characters that AREN’T THAT, but we may end up pushing too far in the opposite direction, and demonize traits like sexuality, conventional attractiveness, and traditional femininity as “sexist.” That’s why the most popular female characters are the ones that are most similar to male heroes - the Arya Starks - emotionally distant, unattached, solve their problems with violence, not remotely sexual. That’s fine too of course. I love Arya. It’s just not…the only way to be.
Reblogging for insightful commentary. Also to mention that this is why I love Attack on Titan. There’s just as many female primary characters as there are male and there’s a very wide range of personalities within that group.
“More characters” is my best solution to this phenomenon, too. I also feel like it can help to show a female character in more than one situation. A given person may be a sensibly-armored killing machine when the situation calls for war, but maybe when she’s just lounging at home she wears a girly skirt and blouse, because why the frick not. This makes her non-traditionally-feminine behavior/appearance when she’s doing the action thing less of a comment on femininity, and more of a a comment on just being practical.
But yeah, also more characters. Which is necessary for SO MANY REASONS.
Warning: If I follow you and you do TMI Tuesdays I’m going to ask you the dumbest questions I can muster.

I just watched it.
At the moment, I’m in no state of mind to go in-depth in regard to my thoughts. So I’ll just say this:
If you like things that are beautiful, and powerful, and utterly good, then watch this freaking movie. Please.
…Dammit, I need to drive soon. Tears are not conducive to driving.
IM FUCKIGN CRYIGN THIS IS IT. THIS IS IT THIS IS THE PINNACLE OF THE PONY FANDOM GO HOME FOLKS SHOWS OVER
Ohhh my god. Ohhh ,y god. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh THERE IT IS THERE IT IS. THERE IT IS. OH MY GOD. EAYEAYEYAYEAHEYAHEY EYAEAAAAAAA YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I remember the idea someone had at one point where they said that there should be a male pony named Fedora who throws niceness at the Mane Six because he wants them to fall in love with him, but all they want is to be friends, so he gets really angry and so they banish him to a mysterious land called the Friend Zone where he learns the power of Friendship because seriously, you’d think for people who love this show, bronies would understand friendship a little better.
IT’S A SHOW
CALLED FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC
ALL THESE SELF-PROFESSED RABID FANS
Not to mention the concept I can’t fully articulate right now about how these mouthbreathers are talking about something that is by and large a clueless, entitled, toxic, imaginary male problem and hoping a show bent to teaching YOUNG GIRLS life lessons and values addresses it.
Burn it down. Just burn it all the fuck down.
Also, look at those fuckin’ handflippers.
But yeah, how awful, being friends. In a world where friendship is literally a magical thing.

I’d love for MLP to tackle the idea of the friend zone… by following Lightandwinged’s idea of pointing out how much bullshit that sense of entitlement on the part of some douchey men is. The show wouldn’t be able to tackle the creepier sexual aspects of the concept due to the target audience, but they could easily handle it along the lines of “being nice to me doesn’t mean that I owe you my love; being nice with that expectation isn’t nice at all”. That actually seems like a valuable lesson to teach the target audience—and it might even smack some sense into the asshole side of the adult male fandom.
