oh honey.

Remember, kids, when you hit 30, you have to give up all of your hobbies. That peaking career and nice house and romantic partner mean you will have zero time to get online and dick around looking at cat gifs.

Damn, apart from the regular fail in this post, how sad are you going to be if your career peaks in your early 30s?

That is because this child sees 30 as the end of the world. 30 is decrepit, don’t you know?

Pianophase.com is a performance and visualization of the first section from Steve Reich’s 1967 piece Piano Phase. Two pianists repeat the same twelve note sequence, but one gradually speeds up. The musical patterns are visualized by drawing two lines, one following each pianist. The sound is performed live in the browser with the Web Audio API, and drawn with HTML5 Canvas.

angryonabus like. there are so many white dudes with white beards from the generic white dude warehouse vintage section, they’re all awful, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO TELL ONE FROM ANOTHER

and this is me MARATHONING game of thrones (just finished 3x04). how am i meant to remember which dude is which with a week or a season between episodes

anyway EVERY SINGLE LADY CAN STAY. brienne. arya. margaery. margaery’s grandma. sansa, even if i can never figure sansa out. danaerys. catelyn. yara. the red woman even though she’s creepy as fuck. roz. shae. ygritte. missandei (first black girl with an actual speaking part?????). osha. cersei even though she is very very evil. THEY CAN ALL STAY. EVEN IF THEY DIE THEY CAN STAY.

of the dudes, tyrion can stay. jon and sam can stay because they’re so sweet and dumb. varys can stay. otherwise ALL MEN MUST DIE and i’m not crying about it tbh.

(all men must die. but we are not men. *mic drop*)

CRYING with laughter at “the generic white dude warehouse vintage section”.  BASICALLY. I had such a hard time keeping them apart - the first two seasons were basically me pausing every 10 minutes to ask J who somebody was.  And then you factor in my general inability to map names onto faces, and it was just 100% “is that the stupid one / the horrible one / the one who’s fucking his sister?” (to which the answer was always and forever, “you’re going to need to be a little more specific, honey”).

But YESSSS the ladies.  THE LADIES THE LADIES.  Such quality ladies!

Disney’s The Jungle Book cast so far: Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Ben Kingsley as the voice of Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of Rakcha, Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Kaa and Idris Elba as the voice of Shere Khan (x x x x)

YO, THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING

And not only is the cast amazing, but the film is going to be a mixture of live-action and animation (a-la Mary Poppins). Neel Seth (Mowgli),is going to be the only live-action actor and everyone else’s characters will be animated AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED.

Since dedicating myself to getting into “superhero shape,” several articles regarding my weight have been brought to my attention. Claims have been made that I’ve been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I’ve never met, eating sprouted grains I can’t pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 5’3” frame. Losing 14 pounds out of necessity in order to live a healthier life is a huge victory. I’m a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, I’d have to part with both arms. And a foot. I’m frustrated with the irresponsibility of tabloid media who sell the public ideas about what we should look like and how we should get there.

Janet van Dyne, a founding member of the Avengers and the person who gave it its name, appears to have been erased from the MCU. Not in the roster when Avengers came out back in 2012, Jan was set for another opportunity to be a part of the team when Marvel announced Ant-Man. Unfortunately, from the announcements yesterday, Jan van Dyne was not even mentioned but someone else was: Hope van Dyne, later corrected to “Hope Pym”, Hank Pym’s daughter. 

At best, Jan will either be a mention or a cameo or an easter egg. She will not be a part of the team she founded, she will not be a superhero. She’s either been swapped out for Hope Pym, who might take up the mantle because Marvel Studios thinks women are interchangeable, or she will be an easter egg at most. 

Janet van Dyne, the heart and soul of the original Avengers and of every Avengers team she’s been on throughout the years, has been erased from the MCU.

If that seems like a fucking shitty thing for Marvel to do to you, we’re tweeting out in the #JanetVanCrime hashtag. you can join us and stand up to yet another fucking erasure of a female character. Keep an eye on the #janetvancrime tag on tumblr for panels, livestreams, and links. Please don’t stay silent about this.

You can watch the Ant-Man panel here.

for every credit I want to give Marvel, they turn around and do this crap

as bad as making Victoria Hand a ‘woman in a refrigerator’ since while I never liked how she viewed Coulson or the team, I feel like she was created to be a plot point to a male’s story (hence the women in refrigerators reference)

what the hell, Marvel?

Okay I just want to defend Marvel for a moment.  20th Century Fox owns the X-Men, just like they own the rights to the Fantastic Four, which is why they’re making a reboot like Sony did for Spiderman or they’d lose the rights and those would go right back to Marvel central so they could be included in the franchise.

That being said, whenever Marvel makes a reference to ‘mutants’ they have to acknowledge and pay tribute to the X-Men franchise, currently owned by 20th Century Fox.  That’s why in AoS they call potential superpowered people ‘gifted individuals’ when they clearly just have mutant powers.

Another note, in the movie release date thing that’s been spreading around tumblr, they show the title card for “The Inhumans” in 2019, which is essentially Marvel’s reboot of mutants so they can start using that to explain superpowers again.

Jan was originally a mutant with the power to change size, Marvel cant acknowledge the existence of mutants without paying for it.  Jan isnt going to be an Avenger.

It’s simple when you think about it.

a) two mutants, wanda and pietro, are starring in the upcoming film, avengers: age of ultron. they are mutants. they are being called miracles.

b) janet van dyne is not a mutant in the 616, earth prime, first comics universe. she is a mutant in ultimates. 

c) what are you even talking about

d) are you saying they can’t do size changing heroes because that is LITERALLY WHAT ANT-MAN IS

You also have to remember that in order to have Jan, you have to have Hank. And he’s not a very nice person, what with him beating his wife and all.

What?  Why?

Most of the MCU has been more based on Ultimates, in terms of how they got their powers, even if they then went for more 616 personalities.  In Ultimates, Hank Pym developed his “Pym particles” by studying Janet’s mutation.  He got them from her.

We may not be able to have mutants in the MCU, but the presence of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch shows that the studio is willing to work around that.  Make her part alien.  Give her a lab accident.  Make her a fucking genius scientist like she was in Ultimates, and have her develop her own goddamn superserum.  Saying Janet requires Hank is like saying Tony requires Steve.  It’s nice to have them.  There is no requirement.

Janet Van Dyne was a founding Avenger.  She named the team.  She is a prominent, important female superheroine with actual super powers, who could have been played by an Asian actress (again, Ultimates), giving us a woman of color in a position of FUCKING AWESOME.  Saying “oh, we can’t have her without Hank, and we can’t change his character to have him not be a wife-beater, so we can’t have her” is not just uncool, it’s wrong.

parents when they can’t get a hold of you: “i called TWICE AND YOU DIDN’T PICK UP”

me when i can’t get a hold of my parents: “I BROKE MY LEG. I CALLED UR CELL 11 TIMES, UR WORK PHONE 7 TIMES, AND SENT YOU 23 TEXTS, AND NO RESPONSE”

my parents: “wow sorry i was busy”

this never changes no matter how old you are

and they complain that we’re bad at communicating!
