@thredbare Thank you so much! Dick’s collared shirt/sweater combo was definitely inspired by the clothes Burt Ward would wear when he played him, but I make his sweaters extra large cause drawing oversized clothing is my weakness!

BTW Bruce would normally have gone to help Dick out. However, he was in panic mode trying to find Damian, who had escaped his playpen over twenty minutes prior.

Man, look at that Doc Rick. It’s like he slowly went from a circle with no brows to an oval with a unibrow. Also look at that show color and socks. <3 At least the color palette for the rest of him is largely the same.

Officially in love with @iriscasefiles! It’s a great new podcast and part of the @procyon-podcast-network. If you love Eos 10 and Wolf 359, definitely go download this now! 

Also super cool: Procyon Podcast Network is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund not only this podcast, but two others as well! 

The other two shows are coming soon: @underpressurepodcast (this spring!) and @s2s-podcast (this summer!) 

Also speaking of Wolf 359, SURPRISE! Zach Valenti (aka Doug Eiffel) is part of the cast of Under Pressure! 

Okay, maybe you’re not convinced you that you need to be freaking excited yet. Well here is the coolest part: The creators ( a largely-female creative team btw) of these podcasts are working on intentionally including racially diverse characters/actors that are also all over the sexual orientation spectrum.

Addressing Some Concerns


The FannibalFest Toronto committee has noticed a lot of concerns and comments regarding the convention. Very few have actually been addressed directly, but social media being what it is, it all eventually crosses our feed. I would like to address some of those concerns.

I alone take responsibility for everything that has happened that doesn’t sit right with the fandom.  I will not push those concerns off on the amazing Fannibals who have stepped forward and “signed-on” to this planning committee to make this convention a reality.  I take the hit, take the anger and the deserved disappointment for the missteps along the way.

With that being said, I apologize for announcements and points I’ve made that have caused you to feel marginalized and like you’re dealing with someone who doesn’t know what they are doing.

I am not a professional convention organizer.  You are correct in that.  I am learning on the job with some advice from professional organizers.  This is an enormous undertaking and I’m doing my best to make this convention happen, purely because I’m a fan who simply wanted a Hannibal convention in North America.  I started out writing and calling Gaumont US TV and Creation Entertainment to put on a Hannibal convention, however I just ended up going in circles with them as they just didn’t want to spend the money or put their faith in the fact that this fandom is big enough to sustain a convention here.

Because neither myself nor the committee are “professionals”, we have had to learn a host of new things including, but not limited to contracts, hotels/venues, Canadian law, budgets, time management and web design. The committee and myself work full time jobs, spending our free time working on convention details. Perhaps because of that, I have not been as attentive to issues and concerns as I should be.  Let me address some of those concerns and explain what my thoughts were at the time.

·         Setting FannibalFest up as a legal company with a lawyer and an accountant.  They advised me what the best course of action is for a group of fans – who are not trying to make any money on this – just trying to meet costs.  They advised to set up as a non-profit 501c7 organization which by IRS law must demonstrate we have a common interest.  I should have just let the common interest be “we like the TV show Hannibal”.  But in my worry that we may encounter some pushback from the IRS, I pushed the idea that our common interest, however shortsighted of me, would be supporting Hannibal fandom writers, artists, vidders, jewelry-makers, tee-shirt/button/merch craftspeople.  I honestly thought every single Hannibal fan would be behind that idea…it never occurred to me that I was making people feel left out by that decision.  

·         Encountering the belief that FannibalFest gives artists something MORE than the regular fan at large (btw I’m a regular fan-not an artist).  All FannibalFest gives artists is a free table at the artist alley at the convention (on a first come first serve basis and they actually have to show they’ve got a body of work that could be pointed to as Fannibal art).  The only other thing FannibalFest offered artists was during Kickstarter, we allowed them to upgrade from regular to full so they could be at the awards dinner scheduled for Thursday night.  Guess how many people did that.  None.  Not a single artist took that offer.  Every single artist coming to the convention so far has outright bought a membership (ticket) at full price.  No Fannibal is getting more from FannibalFest than anyone other.

We have not told a single artist they are not accepted into FannibalFest.  No one can produce anything that came from us that supports that notion.  We have not even begun to address requests to show at FannibalFest artist alley or have we finalized the parameters under which we will be awarding Fannibal artists. Details for both will be announced in the months to come.

·         Booking a large enough event space/hotel. I’ve never planned a small party, let alone an event of this size with financial guarantees for F&B, room blocks, rules/regs on music and Hannibal episodes being used in a group setting, working between operating in USD vs CSD, security, event-cancellation-liability insurance, load in/load out of photography equipment, vendor hall rules/regs and delivery of merchandise.  I do believe the venue booked for FannibalFest is more than enough to assure everyone has a good time, feels safe in a nice facility and has plenty of room for the planned events.

·         Booking celebrities.  It’s been eye-opening to say the least dealing with celebrity representatives who have a language and world all their own with financial guarantees on appearance, autographs, photo ops, cuts/splits/percentages on income. Thankfully some of those representatives and the cast themselves have been enormously kind answering my questions in an attempt to understand how all this works and still be able to pay for their accommodations, flights, ground transportation along with appearance fees. I definitely jumped the gun with an announcement last week.  In my excitement and discussion with a cast rep who books his clients for conventions, I believed we were closer to having the I’s dotted and the t’s crossed.  That rep then went on Easter vacation and while I knew the celebrity had agreed to appear…I just could not put up MY choice of announcement photo without consent.  I don’t feel I have the right to be demanding, so I am doing everything at THEIR convenience and time-table.  When THEY are ready to give me the terms, requests, signed contracts and announcement photos, that’s when I’ll be able to move forward.  I’m waiting and I apologize for making you all wait too.   It was stupid of me to make that announcement.

·         Refusal to answer questions. One other point I’d like to make as incendiary as it may become, is there is one fan in this fandom who makes it their life’s work to rag on Bryan Fuller and anything Fannibal related.  If I think a message or question is coming from that person, I ignore it.  That person has approached us on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and in the comment section of fan-related blogs who have given FannibalFest some notice.  I will not answer someone who pretends to be about 10 different people, puts up hate Twitter and Tumblr pages and dedicates YouTube rants throwing insults at FannibalFest. I have had to block that person and every incarnation of that person as it quickly became obvious they are not interested in hearing what I had to say but only determined to take ANY answer and twist the words to serve their point of view.

I hope this explains a few things for those who have concerns.  Our desire is to bring the fandom together and enjoy each other as a family – of which we are happy to be a part.  We hope our efforts to host a North American Hannibal convention produces an event those who attend enjoy.

You know what I don’t get? When I say how big a spider was and someone asks “Including the legs?” Of course including the legs. They’re part of the damn spider, aren’t they? Besides, I’m not gonna look at a daddy long leg and say that thing is half a centimeter even though its legs stretch a solid three inches because that’s how big its tiny-ass body is. Who the hell doesn’t include the legs when estimating a spider’s size?

aliencryptids  asked:

I hope it's still ok to request something? Any cryptids in or around Arkansas?

It’s always okay to request something! I usually just take awhile to respond if it’s a lengthy ask, or something I’m already researching/have researched. 

Anyway, here are some Arkansas cryptids: 

  • The White River Monster-  even though this creature bears the label “monster” it is said to be deeply loved by local residents and was even nicknamed “Whitey”.
  • Black Panther Sightings- many experts believe this myth is a simple case of “mistaken identity”. Rather than a panther others simply think it was just a large darkly colored wolf. 


Love your icon, btw! Shameless is one of my favorite shows! Hope this helps!

Spring is finally here! Still downloading CC and haven’t played Ts3 yet BUT I will soon! It’s kinda exciting yet nerve wrecking starting ALL OVER AGAIN almost like being the new kid first day of school!

On a side note, again SPRING HAS SPRUNG out here in the beautiful, Pacific Northwest!
All the flora&fauna are beginning to bloom again, the blue sky stretches on forever it seems like, the SUNSHINE ☀️ is warm, the birds are chirping happily, & the cats (3 LARGE BOYS BTW) are being lazy again…

So that being said, happy FRIDAY everyone! Hope your day & weekends are fabulous!
This gal is going to get more coffee & get to CC downloading so I can attempt to play today!!

Clothes Swap?

Hi there pals! I’m Felix, a trans boy, and I’m in need of more masculine clothes. Specifically summer clothes.
I have a whole bunch of really nice dresses that I don’t think I’ll be wearing again, for obvious reasons.

I love pastels, and my favourite colour is yellow. :> I have a lot of black t-shirts, but ill never turn down more haha!

Would anybody like to do a clothes swap with me?

If you’re interested I can send photos of the dresses, but I thought it’d be funner if it was all a surprise ( I will say that most of them are floral patterned). The dresses are all either medium or large (girl sizes are weird, none of them look like they should be large).

I live in Canada btw (I’m willing to do international shipping, but just so you know). I’m a medium T-shirt size, and I actually don’t know my pant size (oops! If u intend on sending shorts or anything I’ll make an effort to find out).

HMU! (。•ﻌ•。) 💖
