it's so much better than my new one

OKAY, I GOTTA FKKIN’ RANT ABOUT “One Day At A Time”

I hopped on Netflix at like midnight to watch one little Star Trek ep before bed. There was a new show ad at the top for a show about a single army veteran mom raising two kids with her mother. It sounded a little like Fuller House to my mind, but possibly better. So I clicked the first episode.

I NEVER WENT TO SLEEP.

IT IS SO SO SO MUCH BETTER THAN FULLER HOUSE HOLY SHIT.

I CAN’T ACTUALLY PROPERLY TELL ABOUT IT BECAUSE I’M SERIOUSLY TIRED AND MY BRAIN DOESN’T WORK LIKE THIS BUT 

  • CUBAN FAMILY
  • TALKS ABOUT THE HARDSHIPS OF BEING CUBAN/POC
  • MOTHER IS AN ARMY NURSE VETERAN WITH A SHOULDER INJURY
  • SON IS 12, DAUGHTER IS 15
  • SHE ALSO TAKES ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND GOES TO GROUP THERAPY TO DEAL WITH NIGHTMARES AND SHIT
  • SHE STRUGGLES WITH THAT IN THE BEGINNING, ESPECIALLY WITH HER CUBAN HERITAGE AND MOTHER BEING AGAINST THAT
  • DAUGHTER IS BASICALLY AN EVERY DAY ACTIVIST: FEMINISM, GREEN, THAT STUFF; CALLS OUT MICROAGGRESSIONS, SEXIST AND RACIST, AND EVEN TEACHES HER FAMILY ABOUT SOME STUFF
  • BUT IT DOESN’T GO OVERBOARD OR MAKE HER LOOK LIKE A “CR*ZED FEMINAZI”/”DUMB MILLENIAL”
  • OH AND ALSO SHE IS GAY
  • IT TOOK HER A FEW EPISODES TO WORK OUT IF SHE WAS INTERESTED IN GIRLS, GUYS, OR BOTH
  • BUT SHE’S FINALLY DECIDED SHE IS GAY
  • AND COME OUT TO HER MOTHER
  • WHO IS SUPPORTIVE

tl;dr this show is seriously good and calls out racism and sexism (and soon maybe homophobia ‘n’ shit, I’m on ep 10 and there’s two eps left this season) in just every day little ways that don’t even always have a huge effect on the story line and it’s also really funny.

i mean i’m white so i can’t speak for cubans and shit, but so far none of this show has made me squint and go ‘i dunno ‘bout this….’ (well, i’ve been a little disappointed at some allonormative moments, but the world isn’t that caught up on aro/ace identities so little to be expected about that)

EVERYONE JUST GO WATCH IT NOW

im late;;;;; sorry ibuki

i couldnt not draw something for the birthday of my Actual Wife, The Best

this was so nice to draw tbh??? i usually dont bother cleaning sketches but i went from the first tiny sketch to the final lines on one layer, its so much better than lining separately,, someone remind me to do that more often pls

“Erik… you came for me.”

Fic Recs: Space Jam by @pangeasplits: (57k)

Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable and quickly goes downhill from there. It’s alright, though, he’ll cope.

It doesn’t help, though, that he’s in unrequited love with his best friend and Commander of the Heartsteel, War-Prince Erik Lehnsherr.

(an improvement of this)

WELCOME TO  B A D L A N D S .

New tv stand! Everything looks so organized!

After all these years, I’ve managed to keep a photo from many past lives ago back when humans inhabited Mars before it had its apocalypse. Every time I’m reincarnated I have myself from another dimension deliver this photo to me so that I can remember my time spent and the many lovers I had back then when Mars was my beautiful home planet. The Martians ran their planet so much better than humans rule this one, I miss them. It’s too bad they abandoned us on earth and kept that new planet they found for themselves instead of taking some of us with them… But I don’t blame them either. Why would they? In comparison to the other races I’ve encountered, Humans are by all means nothing but the galaxy’s most ignorant sentient garbage lol

As much as I like MaleHawke, I’ve always wanted a FemHawke version of this, so I decided to make myself one and edited the original. Key word here being edited. I drew the head and some other bits, but everything else was already there and just needed some tweaking. :P

A part of me wants to grab the new(er) 40K RPG book and start converting for Deathwatch since we’re never getting a version of that under the new system. It’s a good system and far more enjoyable to play. It would need far fewer tweaks than the old system did. I just. Have so many things I owe people including an entire roleplaying campaign.

*extended, high-pitched whining noise*

@tillthenexttimedoctor said: I’m not hugely into Sherlock Holmes adaptions… really NONE of them manage that? (Ouch) And that’s actually pretty useful info re: Elektra, vague spoilers of her dying are kind of among the things which kept me from watching Daredevil season 2 till now.

From what I’ve seen, I think Elementary does ok by its female characters, and there’s probably a few obscure adaptations that do all right. But out of the ones that are popular and treasured as “proper adaptations,” no one does any better than ACD did. Even my beloved new Russian Holmes can’t avoid fridging Irene Adler.

Re Daredevil: The show isn’t perfect regarding Elektra, but yes they do make it pretty obvious that she’s not actually dead, within the same episode of her supposed death. And the show is so much better to her than Frank Miller (the comic book writer who created her) ever was, so it’s at least a decent example of how to fix the way canon treats a character.

This blog is dead

This blog is dead
So I’m making a new one, it’s gonna be a lot more stream lined, and pretty much better than this shitty one. I’m kinda on the fence about either deleting this one, or just deleting everything and starting fresh. So if you still fuck with this one hmu and I’ll just delete my reblogs or… idk

I’m just really burnt out with Tumblr and a lot of the shit that happens on here, I’ve met a lot of great people, and it inspired me to actually take up art. It even motivated me at one point to make it regularly and share it with you guys which led to my short lived sister blog.

Anyway, I don’t want to ramble I’m just gonna declare I’m done with trying to keep up with this blog. It’s time to let it go… s/o to@biohazerd too, great artist and inspiration.

noel on nerdist

i know we’re all buzzing about it, but i just want to add these tidbits -

* i am SO glad he talked about rich playing bob fossil impersonating bowie to try and lure vince in!! this was the story he told at sketchfest and its so much better to hear ‘i’m standing on a lozenge” than to read it :)

* he had talked about morphic resonance to bobcat goldwaith; when he said it at sketchfest someone in the audience “woo!”-ed and noel pointed out that he does attract at least one scientist

* we finally got details on the other fight he & julian had! i think we knew there were 2 but only ever heard about the fliers thing after he fucked up julian’s laundry, right? or am i mis-remembering?

* i think his sharing so much about rich and how lovely a person he is speaks to how much noel is looking forward to rich touring with them in north america (rich had to have been confirmed by the time they taped this in january) and that makes me smile so much

We’re experimenting with a few winter lettuce growing techniques– so far it’s red romaine and another red oak leaf type. Its time to thin the ones I have in a small greenhouse on the porch, and there are some uncovered in a bucket out there, too. The ones in the greenhouse are doing much better than the ones in the bucket. The ones inside under grow lights are thriving best. I sowed the seeds about a month ago - so far all I have is about a salad’s worth. (But since it was done with seeds that I saved this year at least it’s a pretty cheap salad!) I also included a picture of my new seed bank container made from a wooden display case. Duncan is making an automatic watering system for some more lights in the basement so I hope to have more in place next week.
