I've just spent the last hour on your blog scrolling through your comics and stuff, and hot damn, everything is amazing. Your style is so versatile, one minute there's this really deep post about meeting new people (which completely spot on) and the next there's this hilarious big bird thing, and it works well with both?? You just made my day so much better, thanks. thank you. wow

thats a LONG TIME TO SPEND LOOKING AT THINGS you probably ran out of decent material in like the first ten minutes aha i havent done a TON of good stuff recently (but thank you oh my gosh)

oh MAN though speaking of comics im actually in the middle of a Big Project for october about GHOSTS - its probably gonna be a twenty page something in a simple style following a person who recently died and who has to go through all the Weird Arbitrary Ghost Rules there are in the afterlife

im still working out all the details but heres a baby peek at a few of the panels

Kotaku has a list of features about the newly added Sims 4 Ghosts. Check out some of the ways you can play with ghosts in The Sims 4.

Here’s a quick guide that Franklin provided for how to reintroduce ghost Sims to your household and get started with the afterlife:

  • When a Sim dies, they become a non-playable ghost.
  • Use the “Invite to Household” interaction to make a ghost into fully playable member of your household!

  • Ghosts can have relationships, get married, woohoo, hold jobs, build aspirations, earn traits, or just be!
  • Ghosts have a unique post life experience based upon how they died…

  • Sims that died by hunger seek to satisfy their hunger in the afterlife.
  • Sims that died by overexertion and old age find they prefer to take it easy in the afterlife.

  • Sims that died by fire have a new interaction available to them…my advice, try and not make them angry.
  • Sims that died by an emotional death can radiate their emotion onto other Sims.

  • Sims that died by electrocution, when angry, have a unique interaction to break electronic devices. They also seem to really enjoy the “Hand Buzzer” social.
  • Sims that died by Cowplant have the desire to harm and help the plant world. They can cause plants to die when in a negative emotion, but will care for plants when in a positive emotion.

  • Ghosts can possess objects, and they can repair broken objects when possessed
  • Ghosts have new interactions available to them, such as “Ghost Scare,” “Pass Through,” and “Talk About Death.”

  • Level 10 Gourmet cooks have a new recipe “Ambrosia”, which can be used to bring a Ghost to life (or give a Sim renewed life)!
  • There is a new gardening flower type, the Deathflower, which can be used by a Sim to save themselves or another when visited by the Reaper!

UPDATE (1:11 pm): And the update is now officially live and available to download. As with all Sims 4 patches, it should begin downloading and updating automatically once you launch Origin before beginning the game proper. I also put in an extra line above to respond to questions in the comments about a possible Mac version of The Sims 4

Thoughts on Christianity?

As an institution, it’s a hierarchy of charismatic deceivers who veil their selfish intentions in claims of benevolence and divinity, conditioning others via subtle, meticulously implemented power plays that encourage faith.

As a practice, it’s perspective confining dogma, fear based adherence to a creed that demands dismissal of any education that does not conveniently support the belief system, a state of denial that perpetually hinders growth.

It is the illusory security of identity and wishful thinking of a conscious afterlife that demands a lifestyle of repression to attain, ironically inhibiting one from living fully, thus individuals sacrifice the lives they seek to preserve, their minds at play in fantasy while they forsake their only Reality.

Hey Carol Corps!

I need your help with an idea for a Halloween Costume for my friend’s party. The theme is Undead Disney Characters. You’re supposed to take a Disney character and go as the ghost/zombie/vampire/etc. version. Bonus points if the costume relates to the character’s death. (Example: One of the hosts is going as undead Ursula with a piece of a ship sticking out of her.)

I originally wasn’t sure who to go as and how I was going to put this together in a month. Then I remembered- DISNEY OWNS MARVEL. AND I HAVE A CAPTAIN MARVEL  OUTFIT. (This totally counts right? Right? Whatever, I’m doing it.)

SO. Any suggestions as to what kind of undead being Carol would turn into? And how did she pass into the afterlife?(Preferably in a way I can incorporate into a costume- Some kind of weird alien gun is my only idea right now.) 

Thanks so much for all your help! I will definitely be posting pictures of the undeadness!

Sims that died by overexertion and old age find they prefer to take it easy in the afterlife.

Sims that died by fire have a new interaction available to them - setting things on fire!

Sims that died by an emotional death can radiate their emotion onto other Sims.

Sims that died by electrocution, when angry, have a unique interaction to break electronic devices. They also seem to really enjoy the “Hand Buzzer” social.

Sims that died by Cowplant have the desire to harm and help the plant world. They can cause plants to die when in a negative emotion, but will care for plants when in a positive emotion.

I think the lyrics of Hum Hallelujah are so underrated like the line “I sing of blues and I swallow them too” is fucking genius!!! I just understood that it meant singing of sadness (obvi), and taking Zoloft (anti-depression, helps with anxiety-which Pete struggled with) which is BLUE and anti depressants can make you FEEL BLUE. THAT IS A SUCH A GREAT LINE!!!!!
Pete said he was also listening to Jeff burkleys version of the song Hallelujah when he attempted, hence the whole ‘hum hallelujah’ thing. PLUS THE TEENAGE VOW IN A PARKING LOT LINE IS WHEN HE WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW E WANTS TO JOIN ‘HER’ IN THE AFTERLIFE IN GRAY

And I JUST THINK THIS SONG IS SO UNDERRATED

mikkeneko replied to your post: kaputskii replied to your post: Thor: …

As long as Loki is not REALLY DEAD FOR REAL, there is always fanfic. :) Heck, there’s still fanfic even if he is, but it does help encourage people!

Yeah, I wouldn’t expect fanfic to die out even if Loki were killed in the movies.  Frigga’s a far less popular character and she still appears in a ton of fic!  And I don’t think it’ll happen, not after they reversed the decision once, but if they do….

Well, it’s based on a canon where these characters have died more than once and get brought back, even beyond that they’re comic book characters, they’re based on Norse gods who have a built in afterlife!  :D

Insane Doctor Who theory

I like coming up with more insane theories each time I post a theory. But as always here me out. 

So in ‘The Big Bang’ River song says that The Doctor will be ”Trapped in the netherspace, the void between the worlds” when he flies the pandorica into the exploding Tardis.

With the knowledge that this season there is a place called ‘The Nethersphere’, i’m thinking the paradise/ heaven/ the afterlife isn’t Gallifrey, but instead it is a point between our reality & Gallifrey (this all assumes this season has anything to do with Gallifrey coz it may not).

What if the Time Lords transmitted a message to the universe about there being a paradise, people across the universe are flying around trying to find it but just can’t find it & instead usually encounter The Doctor, they then die somehow, Time Lords take them in the hope that The Doctor will eventually notice something. I honestly reckon more people have ended up in heaven then we think. 

As I said, very insane theory, I mean it could be all right, all wrong, part right, part wrong, we just don’t know. But I am going to go 100% all out & say it’s something that exists between universes or at least another dimension

Tools Found in Alabama Woodland Indian Burials

Alabama Woodland Indians buried there dead with a variety of tools intended for use in the afterlife. These tools were meant to help the dead in agriculture, hunting and survival. At various burials across the state of Alabama, stone tools, such as adzes, hoes, knives and arrowheads have been found in in close proximity to the dead within closed and sealed burials.

1. Newborn Afterlife: a comic project by the New Koichi starring the emo OCs we invented a long time ago and never wanted to see again, but now have their own story which is looking pretty good to me so far! 

2. Newborn Afterlife: a song off of the Seventeen-Flifty-Thirteen re-release of Moonrise, the best-selling album by the New Newfound Landland vampire heavy metal band ’Death Metal-’ headed by Vampire Lord Gnitemastre.

3. Newborn Afterlife: one of the cooler combinations to be pulled from the random word jars in the Painting Studio this summer.
