This is so wrong that it’s right.
Also spotted on Reddit.
There is nothing that I can say about Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor that is not already succinctly described in the About section:
Nothin’ wrong with sexy!
Cheesecake has its place.
But I like pictures of women who look like they are legitimately bad-ass. Women that don’t fight in high heels. Women that clearly give a shit about the practicalities of getting in a lethal situation. Women who could most definitely kick my ass.
Love it. Can’t wait until the next iteration adds on some female forms
I am a major sports geek (in addition to alot of other things that will be explored on this blog), with football leading the list. I am a born and bred New York Giants fan. And in spite of a so-so season and once again slipping in as a wild card, it was unbelievably awesome to watch the Giants defeat the smug Pats. I celebrated a bit too much last night to write a coherent post so I will leave it at this:
A fun vampire T-shirt designed by Ben Douglass is on sale at Woot. Gotta love their snarky descriptions (Condition: Over-exposed).
I like to think/hope/wish that Blade is moving in on Edward for the kill but it may just be a slip in the alignment.
25 films from the 2200 titles nominated have been added to the National Film Registry for 2011.
A Computer Animated Hand created by Ed Catmull (one of the founders of Pixar) and Fred Parke is among the inductees. This fascinating short is one of the first (as many believe, from 1972) to feature digital 3D computer graphics. Check it out at Nerd Plus Art (pretty cool blog too).
Other films include Bambi (a Disney classic that many can attribute to their mother and/or abandonment issues), Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi (which heralded a next wave of indie directors and shoe-string budgets), John Cassavetes’ Faces (conformity shattered, Gena Rowlands is devastating) and Frank Capra’s The Negro Soldier (a 1944 film to promote racial tolerance).
Check out the full list at deadline.com.
Maybe next year Bambi meets Godzilla will be nominated:
For whatever reason this week on the Facebook, it seemed as though everyone was sharing and commenting on the wall poster of a quote by Ira Glass (of This American Life and other goodies) for beginners and non-beginners alike:
I found it fascinating that this quote seemed to resonate with so many different types of people from all walks of life. This is of course based on my completely unscientific study of a horribly compromised selection of the Facebook walls I decided to view. This misguided sampling included filmmakers, comicbook artists & writers, stay at home and/or working moms and/or dads, comics, electrical engineers, neuroscientists, biologists, hedgefund managers and natural born layabouts. I have an eclectic group of friends/frenemies. I even scoped out the walls and twitter feeds of people I don’t know. Did I just out myself as an information stalker? Anyhoo, the data revealed…
