I hate bullies

Via one of the writers I sort of know (Hey, Finn!) I heard that there’s a guy who’s been basically removed from Facebook, because he suggested that just  maybe right after a guy’s death isn’t a great time to be slandering him.

Apparently the person suggesting traditional norms of not assaulting the grieving families made the mistake of not blocking folks who don’t agree with him, and the blankers reported him– which got him removed from facebook, possibly temporarily.

If you’d like to give a big single-digit salute to the bullies, please go look at the fellow’s work, and see if any of it interests you.

Thank you for your time.

I am just so tired of this mean girl junk.

Reblog: Daily Beast reports presence of conservatives in the FBI like it’s a bad thing

Because it tells us something we didn’t know, something actually reassuring: That, up until now, the whole FBI/CIA-centered scandal to overturn the results of the 2016 election really was the work of some badly politicized government workers. It wasn’t the entire culture, it was just people at the top abusing their authority.

 Which I’ve been saying from the start, but it’s nice to have publicly available evidence

Is It Camera Magic, or a Crucial Piece of Characterization?

The image is a little hard to read, but worth it– if you can’t, though, just read the article.

Yes, I do adore Hawkeye, too. Reminds me of my husband.

A Song of Joy by Caroline Furlong

By now, audiences are at least nominally acquainted with both Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The scene above, from Marvel’s The Avengers*, ought to be fairly familiar for that reason. Despite receiving less screentime than his fellow heroes, Hawkeye’s over-the-shoulder shot remains a memorable moment in the franchise.

For most, this is simply camera magic – a film-making trick meant to wow the audience and send them home talking. Who could actually fire an arrow behind their back without looking? More to the point, who would bring a bow and arrow to an alien invasion? It is a completely juvenile addition to a movie that no reasoning adult would watch, let alone enjoy. Isn’t it?

No, it is not, for three reasons. First, as the commenter above points out, this fantastic shot demonstrates the fact that the shooter has practiced extensively. He also has the mental capacity…

Soulfinder #1 – review — REBLOG

Reblogged from Superversive SF, a review by Nate Winchester.

Quick, spoiler-free summation: Soulfinder is like Supernatural if it was much more hardcore Roman Catholic and the demons were more like eldritch abominations. A flawed, but solid freshman effort.
Recommend ages: Teenager and up. Deals with some complicated concepts and has scary imagery.

POSSIBLE SPOILER TALK

I always like to start out with the cons and then finish positively. Though many of the cons in this comic are a result of its pros.

For example, by far my biggest complaint is that I wanted more. The world seemed rich and interesting enough I felt like we never got a good look at anything.

For those looking for something to read. ^.^

Foaming hand soap-

hack.

If you buy one of those foaming hand soap things from Bath and Body Works, you can refill it with normal scented soap at a maybe-two-second-squeeze rate and then fill the rest with water, put on the lid and shake.

The amazing good smell effect carries over.

Harry’s razor’s fig scented soap is very similar to their mahogany, too, kind of a variant of Old Spice but not quite so good.  Haven’t tried using Old Spice body wash, yet.
