News: Kodansha Comics Unveils Cover of Attack on Titan Anthology by Paul Pope


Original Release Date: October 18th, 2016
Retail Price: $29.99


Kodansha Comics has unveiled Paul Pope’s cover art for the upcoming Attack on Titan Anthology, featuring the Rogue Titan and Eren!

The Anthology was originally announced at NYCC 2015 as a significant collaboration between notable western comic artists and the SnK series. Since then, Kodansha has been sharing previews consistently via convention panels, artist highlights, free comic day, etc.


Update (July 24th, 2016): Added the retailer-exclusive variant covers by Phil Jimenez (Available at Diamond) and Paolo Rivera (Available at Books-a-Million, featuring Colossal Titan and Eren)!

Imagine you’re pulling an all-nighter trying to meet a deadline, or driving all night trying to figure out which warehouse the Joker stashed Harvey Dent in – whatever the case, you’re incredibly tired and sleep is not an option. Traditionally you’d either take a nap or have some coffee (or a urine-staining energy drink), but it’s one or the other – either try to get a quick nap, or power through on a chemical high.

But science, true to form, took these two seemingly contradictory options and decided to merge them together, like when WCW invaded the World Wrestling Federation. And it worked, and not in the order you’d expect.

Researchers found that a cup of coffee followed by an immediate 15-minute nap is a notably more effective method of staying awake and alert for longer than either coffee or a nap alone. Which is a bit odd when you think about it, since you’d expect the caffeine to keep you awake, leaving you teetering on the edge of falling asleep but not quite going over (this is known in the scientific community as the Edward Norton-Brad Pitt boundary). But the trick to the “caffeine nap” is that caffeine doesn’t act immediately – it takes about 45 minutes to be completely ingested, but the effect of the drug kicks in after only 15 minutes.

5 Ways to Trick Your Body Into Being More Awesome

In which I make a giant headcanon post based on one fucking sentence from the Halo wiki

The Jiralhanae before being absorbed into the Covenant, had a polytheistic religion…however unlike most polytheistic beliefs, they did not have a large amount of gods. They only had three. Soirapt, Teash, and Warial, the three Lords of the Moons, which also served as the three afterlife destinations for Jiralhanae.

Soirapt and their moon (”Lords” is an unexact translation, all three Jiralhanae gods are in fact genderless) was the home to the greatest Doisac had to offer. Chieftains who brought glory to their packs, ancient heroes, soldiers who died to protect their packs, women who devoted their lives to their womenly roles. This moon was their resting place. Notably it was the only moon not colonized after the Covenant came, even though the others were, because of its sacredness.

Teash and their moon was the home to those who neither did good or bad, they just lived their lives. This includes average Chieftains and soldiers who didn’t really do much good, but also didn’t activily ruin anything, and those who did things such as trade and craft which held society together, but didn’t really get lauded for it. All children who died were believed to go to this moon, as they never lived long enough to become good or bad. It was believed most of the dead went here.

Warial and their moon was the home to the worst Jiralhanae to ever live. This is where the criminals, traitors and cowards went. It was the destination for all who brought ruin to their packs, even if it was unintentional. While Teash ended up having a somewhat respectable community of colonists, Warial served only as a haven for the undesirables of society, for no one else would want to step foot on it. 

The spirits of the dead only were on the moons during the night, when the sun rised, the spirits came to Doisac to serve as vassals to their lunar lords.

The spirits under Soirapt, brought glory in battle, helped packs gain land and resources, watched over the births of children, and made sure all were fed and healthy.

The spirits under Teash, helped oversee craft and trade, and also looked over natural phenomena that was not considered beneficial nor terrible for the Jiralhanae, such as vegetation (since the Jiralhanae were carnivores). They also were said to look after children as they grew.

The spirits under Warial only brought despair, failure in battle, pain, suffering, miscarriages, plague, pestilence, famine, drought, anything that could be the end of a pack, were their doing. 

Because it was obvious that Soirapt couldn’t serve every pack (as both sides can’t win a battle for example) the Jiralhanae prayed to the gods, and tried to win the favor of Soirapt or to ward away Warial’s influence.

guys there are no words for how scared i am

i wish two of my most vivid, formative political memories weren’t bush beating gore in 2000 and bush beating kerry in 2004. the possibility of another loss is starting to feel sickeningly real to me. america is totally capable of doing this to itself. (or maybe: white america is totally capable of doing this to the rest of america.)

i am not giving up but i am starting to feel like maybe the most useful thing i can do for myself right now is just start cultivating a numb sense of resignation. i have the luxury, at least, of my fear being mostly philosophical, abstract, or on behalf of other people—even if those people are my dear friends, even if it is absolutely wrenching to read about the republican platform’s open homophobia and islamophobia and think of what it means for people i care about—i can’t lay claim to their pain in the same way. i am not the person who stands to lose the most if we really do elect this shrill, terrifying bigot into office. 

i need to buck up. i know that i do. i am in this for the duration. the times when you feel like giving up on your country are so often the times when your country needs you the most. i just wish america didn’t make me feel so goddamn bad all the goddamn time.

sorry, man, i try to keep things upbeat around here and in general as a rule i try to reach for hope but i am so scared, i am so scared, i am so fucking scared

Greenhouse gases from shipping

Although the Paris agreement reached last fall to attempt to limit the impacts of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions is a step in the right direction, one issue notably missing from that agreement relates to transportation. Both airplanes and ships emit greenhouse gases at sea, but neither of these was explicitly included in global emissions limits.

Okay wow Sarah Lynn just hurt me so much.
Like her story was one thing. She’s a grown up child star turned teen idle suffering from all the mental scars that kind of life causes, and she never really got the help she desperately needed (her entire life situation both drove her to drug abuse and enabled her to continue abusing, while not giving her any reason to change)- all while the media turned on her. Her being a mentally ill addict was just a joke, up until it spiraled out of control and ended up killing her.

They treated her character in a way that drew attention to that by making us laugh at her antics one moment and then reminding us that this is a really fucked up woman who really needs help and support. She was forced into this life at a young age and never really had control over where it ended up.
She’s treated like a “slutty”, self-absorbed, irresponsible, and “unintelligent” person but then turns around and says something really profound and heartbreaking and her outward persona is called into question. 
She wanted to be an architect.  ;-;

Most Spectrobe family lines are predictable and uninspired. One of the huge notable exception of  Kubaku’s line, which is a group of three vague faceless “objects” (each one with a separate brain apparently), then into a canon/tank monster and eventually growing up to become a beautiful Airplame. All three stages ot it’s life are unified by the fact that they all have a giant wisp of hair for some reason.

Spectrobes would of been saved if they aspired for greatness on this level and not just made half the critters over complicated dogs

Me and @rodimuskonboi have developed a system for what bots are on the main Autobot team in pretty much every main continuity. There’s always at least 3 or 4 of these tropes on a team, but there’s usually more.

The Optimus Prime (The OP): Can be one of several bots, but always fills the role of Optimus Prime. Notable examples: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Optimus Primal, Rodimus, and even Ultra Magnus in some cases.

The Small: The child appeal character that feels like a young kid/teen, makes everyone question why they’re even allowed to be fighting in a war in the first place. 90% of the time it’s Bumblebee. 

Big Green Sweetheart: Always big, always green, always the most forgiving and friendly person on the team. Also tends to be extremely smart, but that’s not a requirement. Examples: BW Rhinox, TFA Bulkhead, TFP Bulkhead, RB Boulder, RID2015 Grimlock

The Medic: A character who’s either actually a medic or they know more about technology and science than other bots, and the rest of the team assumes they can also act as a medic.

The Thin: Usually the Token Femme, but not always. Nothing notable in common personality wise, but they do round out the team in terms of visual design. 

“Optimus Prime In Training”: That one bot that would be guaranteed to take over for the OP in case the original OP was unable to lead the team. Often overlaps with The Small. Examples (that happened or nearly happened): TFP Smokescreen, G1 Rodimus, TFP/RID2015 Bumblebee in a way.

The Loyal Rebel: The rebellious longer type that doesn’t agree with or mindlessly follow everything the main group does, but is still completely loyal to the team.

Ok so. I ship Catherine/Tilney to the moon and back, and Cate/Henry in cm chronicles appears to be going much the same way for me. Two episodes of these dorks flirting like their pants are on fire and I’m hooked. Henry is all charm and Cate is all squee, and it’s all exactly as it should be in the world of my fave Austen novel’s main ship.

And now I’m writing meta? Wow, haven’t done that in a while.

Oh yeah. This contains spoilery spoilers for Northanger Abbey. Which, if you haven’t read it, you should. Hands down best Austen novel imo.

  • can do a couple of really good impressions–most notably mel gibson, commander iverson, and, post-rescue, coran
  • secretly hates the color orange, but won’t say anything because “it’s not that important, really.”
  • actual favorite color is purple
  • Freckled Bisexual™
  • loves peaches an inordinate amount honestly
  • listens to beatless ambient music when he’s working to concentrate
  • annoyed the shit out of his roommates in school bc he talked in his sleep
  • has three tattoos: 
    • “to boldly go” in morse code on the inside of his left wrist (an 18th birthday present from mr. holt) 
    • the constellation casseiopia just under his right collarbone (impulse ink to celebrate his graduation from the garrison)
    • and an astrolabe with the words “sic itur ad aspera” between his shoulderblades (done as soon as he found out he’d been selected for the kerberos mission)
  • started growing his hair out by accident when he was seventeen and missed three haircuts in a row–once it got long enough and he discovered ponytails, he never went back

bonus:

  • pidge knew how to get into and around the garrison before enrolling as a student bc matt used to sneak them in so they could tinker in the engineering labs together

Finally. RNGesus has been flensing me brutally this week. First the damn Amanuensis was hiding and then Winking Isle was feeling particularly cruel. But… oh but how it has all been worth it:

The non-candle returns! I love the text from not getting St. Destin’s Candle. I love it so much I echoed it again

Then I headed to the Nadir and discovered that the next candle comes from another card draw. RNGesus’ grip is tight. And unrelenting. And so cruel…

Luckily, just as tears began to flow, my timer popped and I immediately drew:

Now, I have it on spacemarine9′s good authority that if you take the “no consequences” option, there really are no consequences. I could get St. Erzulie’s candle and avoid Obscurity (which will prevent me from ever gaining Notability, a Destiny, or an Ambition, again)…

But that’s hardly sporting now, is it?

Hey do people want a monthly mailing list digest of notable stuff I published or posted, including art? Upcoming podcasts I’ll be on? And product announcements if I publish stuff you can buy? Because I could totally set that up and then you wouldn’t have to worry about missing stuff because you couldn’t check your dashboard on a given day or something.

I’m thinking one monthly digest of notable stuff I did and upcoming stuff to expect, and one list just for product announcements like books and art prints, and you can pick whether to be on one or both.

This will also be handy if tumblr goes down in some sort of social media apocalypse. I really don’t expect it to because it’s more valuable running than as code and patents, but Verizon’s buying Yahoo! so who knows what’ll happen to our little watering hole here. I wanna keep in touch with you people. I may also have a third “in case of tumblr apocalypse” list you can join just to send you all an update of where I move my blogs if shit goes cray.

Important Character Update!

((Hello all my lovely followers!~ Quick announcement time! I’ve been thinking about making this change to this character for awhile now and I’ve finally got the motivation to do this! I’ve decided to change Leroy’s gender from CIS Male to Transgender  Male! The most notable changes are done physically to his model. He now has surgery scars on his chest and slightly larger hips.))

((Other than that he hasn’t changed at all! His personality, backstory, and sexuality are all the same! This change is more of an addition to his character if anything. I hope you’re all okay with this sudden change!~ Cause it’s now officially a part of this blog’s canon!))

What I Realized About Lincoln During a Recent 100 Rewatch

It’s clear that, when the showrunners decided in Season 3 to make Lexa and the Grounders protagonists, going so far as to vilify Bellamy and Pike (but notably, not Monty, Bryan, Monroe, or the majority of Arkadians who voted for Pike), they shamelessly used Lincoln as a pawn to push this point, before and including Lincoln’s death.  They completely ignored Lincoln’s prior treatment at the hands of Trikru, and his own actions and statements opposing the Grounder way, in doing so.

Seasons 1 and 2:
  • Lincoln kidnaps Octavia to keep Trikru from killing her
  • Comes back warn Octavia that Murphy has been sent with a disease to lower the Delinquents numbers and make them easier to wipe out
  • Warns Delinquents that Anya and Tristan, under Lexa’s orders, have come to wipe out every last one of them
  • Risks Trikru’s wrath by disguising himself and killing Trikru soldiers who were going to execute Finn and Clarke
  • Talks about how he tried to save a “suicide by Earth” Arker as a child, but his father forced him to kill the already dying man
  • Says what Trikru is doing to the delinquents “is wrong”
  • Comments how people have been trying to make him a monster his entire life
  • Gets caught by Indra after the attack on the drop ship; when Octavia comes to save him, Indra and her village have already begun torturing him to death with the “death of 49 cuts”
  • Gets turned into a Reaper, and when Abby fixes him, is spurned once again by Indra
  • Finally gets accepted back into Trikru, but disagrees with abandoning the 47 (along with Bellamy, Raven, Wick, Abby, and Kane who had also been caught) to their deaths when Lexa breaks the treaty
  • Gets forcibly dragged from Mt Weather against his will, frees himself offscreen to kill Cage, but then is subjected to a kill order for disobeying Lexa if he leaves Arkadia

Season 3:
  • Lexa has lifted the kill order on Lincoln and established a temporary peace with Arkadia –on the condition that the Arkadians become her subjects, and naturally, many Arkadians aren’t willing to subject themselves to a foreign ruler whose people have been killing the Arkadians–Delinquents and Farm Station alike–since they sought refuge on Earth
  • Every time Pike’s faction complains about Grounders, we have to hear that either it was Ice Nation–and Ice Nation is supposedly so much more vicious than the other clans (who are constantly complaining about accepting Skaikru, by the way); or–and here is my main point

  • When Bellamy points that it was Trikru that killed 37 of the Delinquents before Kane and his sudden sense of moral superiority set foot on Earth, and that it was also Trikru who abandoned them at Mt. Weather to die–both factual statements, all of a sudden, Lincoln is looking at Bellamy like “how could you?  I’m Trikru!”  Which completely flies in the face of Lincoln’s earlier attitudes about Trikru’s treatment of the Arkadians in the earlier seasons when the incidents that Bellamy is talking about were actually happening.

There is no explanation given for Lincoln’s sudden loyalty to the people who were, in his own words, “trying to make him a monster”.  No answer to why actions that caused Lincoln himself to turn against Trikru are suddenly acceptable to him.  No answer given to explain why Bellamy should trust Trikru after those murders and betrayals–again, except that Lincoln is Trikru too.  Which by that logic–why are the Grounders ready to wipe out Arkadia just for the actions of Finn or Pike’s faction–after all, their good buddies Clarke, Kane and Octavia are also “skaikru”.
The only reason is that the show wanted to use Lincoln–the least Grounder-like of the Grounders outside of Luna’s barge–to exemplify Trikru, and thereby make Bellamy and Pike look like bigots.  If I had started the show with Season 3, I’d buy it.  But I’m sorry–I’ve seen the entire show, and it just doesn’t stick.  Furthermore, it was a disservice to a great character–Lincoln–who lost not only his life in Season 3 but also the traits that made him unique.

anonymous asked:

Not sure if my ask got vanished but some fans speculate that the third member to join Classic and Modern is Boom Sonic in Project 2017, but Takashi is known to have a dislike for BoomSonic and Sonic Team doesnt respect the spin off all that much but they still want to do it for the sake of being meta maybe?

I can imagine the backlash already if this is revealed to be the case.

Thing is, Boom hasn’t earned the right to be a part of this. It lacks notability and hasn’t got a good reputation, hence possibly tarring the game by association.
