Just when you didn’t think the One Direction fandom could get anymore awesome, they give more of their hard earned cash to charity to make their idols smile. We fudging love them.

This time the gals and guys have been donating their money as a birthday present to the gorgeous Liam Payne, who turns 22 on Saturday.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) or Doctors Without Borders is the lucky charity that Liam’s fans having been throwing their money at this time.

MSF saves lives by providing medical aid where it is needed most – in armed conflicts, epidemics, famines and natural disasters. They also tackle health crises and support people where the need is greatest. MSF currently has projects running in over 60 countries. More information can be found on their official website.

And now with an extra $10,000 (£6,386.75) to boot we’re sure they’ll be smiling almost as much as this…

The drive was once again set up by 1D Fans Give, a group of One Direction fans who have joined together to raise money for various causes. Since 2013, they have raised more than $104,000 for charities such as Bluebell Wood Childrens Hospice, Believe in Magic, The British Asian Trust, London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, The Katie Piper Foundation, Women’s Aid, Eden Dora Trust, It Gets Better, One in a Million, LCFC Foxes Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland.

That’s a lot of money and a lot of charities. Well done Directioners, you officially win the prize for most charitable fandom.

So I picked up Avengelyne #1 from a bargain bin during SIS14. For a book that’s arguably a 90’s “bad girl” book Avengelyne is more like a sword wielding Belldandy than Xena. Decided to take a little break from comic pages and commissions and draw something completely different.

I never lived through the extreme 90’s foil cover era so the thing is a pretty neat artifact in either way.

Manga Studio, Photoshop.

It’s hard to make sense out of this pic. It’s not just the obvious lack of armor; it’s also her right shoulder that seems dislocated from the rest of her body, as if it’s trying to run away from the bad art.

On a plus side, at least it’s not boobs-n-butt pose

If you had just been in a messy glue factory accident, you’d be upset too.

Liefeld's Avengelyne Film Has Its Heroine

Given how hot comic book properties are right now, I’m not surprised Rob Liefeld is jumping into the fray. Honestly, I’m surprised he waited so long given how many titles he has to his name.  Just in time to start promoting the movie at San Diego Comic-Con, Liefeld has announced that he is currently working to bring an Avengelyne movie to the big screen – and he already has a star.  Avengelyne, Rob Liefeld’s 1995 Maximum Press title about a gifted angelic warrior defending Earth from the hordes of Hell, will feature noted mixed martial artist turned action star Gina Carano as the titular heroine.  In fact, fans at SDCC can track down Rob and Gina, who will be promoting the film with posters featuring Carano as the heroine.

The Things I Do For Comics – Spider-Man/Badrock

I consider my fellow BOEG writer Biff Tannen a friend. Really, I do. We’ve known one another quite a while and he’s a rather agreeable chap. So, when that cold-hearted bastard suggested I read Spider-Man/Badrock for my next installment in this series, I was understandably upset.

I mean,  fuck that guy, right?

You see, we recently sat down and watched The Image Revolution and while it was an…

I found and bought this as a used book store today. I didn’t have a camera, and 50 cents seemed like it was worth the “wtf”.

Can someone tell me which of those lines is her belly button and what her crotch is doing?

Also, her left hand. Boy, I wish MY fingers bent that way.

My favorite part IN the comic is where she gets stabbed in the stomach. Maybe that wouldn’t happen if you wore things over your underwear, I’m just saying.

The second picture I’ve already put up here, so I’ve chosen to highlight the inside scan.  As bad as the cover is, that panel really illustrates just how ridiculous her torso and “hips” are.  That looks like the sword is stabbing a wad of putty, not a human being.

Chelsea Manning facing 'indefinite solitary confinement' for seemingly minor infractions

Chelsea Manning may be placed in solitary confinement “indefinitely” for allegedly being in possession of the Caitlyn Jenner issue of Vanity Fair, her lawyer said on Wednesday.

The US whistleblower is currently serving a 35-year prison sentence after being convicted of espionage for leaking over 700,000 classified documents to Wikileaks while working for the military in Iraq.

Her hearing, in front of a panel of three people, will take place in private at the Fort Leavenworth men’s military prison, according to her lawyer Nancy Hollander.

This is like prison disciplinary infractions in a civilian prison and there will be a hearing, but frankly it looks to me like harassment.

Manning was also allegedly found with other reading material, an expired tube of toothpaste and is accused of disorderly conduct for sweeping food onto the floor and of showing disrespect, according to the Associated Press. The maximum penalty Manning could face is indefinite solitary confinement.

Her supporters have launched an online petition claiming she is being punished for “speaking out” and listed the four charges against her, which include ‘medicine misuse’ for the expired toothpaste.

Canadian experience, but lots of friends whose parents are cops; maximum detainment without pressing criminal charges depends on jurisdiction. Most places it’s 24 hours, though. (Unless suspected of terrorism.)

It’s not just a NY thing but in NYC it’s shorter (24 hours iirc) than in some other states (can go up to 72).

Thanks! Yeah, I must have read some stuff about having up to 72 hrs before in the news–I’ve lived in many different parts of the States, so that’s why I’m remembering various time constraints. It also seemed like they were saying that if they didn’t charger her NOW, that they never could, which I know isn’t true.

anonymous asked:

Maybe the way they're dragging out babygate (with rather awkward confirmations) has to do with what else is in the headlines each week? Perhaps a denial would have come earlier, but they want to time it for maximum press exposure.

Maybe? But they didn’t need to confirm it: they could have just focused on band promo to keep the band in the press before waiting for a clear week to deny babygate. The other press might influence what gets done with babygate this week, but I don’t think they’d add confirmations to drag it out when they could have done more none-denials or just promoed music.
