One of my favourite stories of comics creation is that of Captain Haddock’s swearing. Hergé had the character sketched out in his head, but he kept hitting a seemingly insoluble problem: sailors swear. That’s why ‘to swear like a sailor’ is an expression. He needed to keep Tintin G-rated, but it…
I’ve been on vacation and am returning to the real world now, and I’m sure what I’m about to write will be repetitive for some. But I can’t not write it, and I hope that you share it because tomorrow, October 1, has the potential to be a historic day for Hong Kong, good or bad.

I suspect that there is a lot to be said about the appropriation of fan culture in reference it this video.

I could only image the ‘just got married’ card being shipped to Yuuno.

The term homeland is sourced from a racial nationalist perspective and carries with it much of the problems that entails.
I think it would be interesting to have a zoo that showcased only black-and-white animals, like pandas, zebras, skunks, snow leopards, certain penguins, and, er, give me some suggestions?
Magpies, magpie geese, zebra fish, Tasmanian devils and the Panda Bat.
Also many of these sound like animals out of the last air bender.
It’s shitty that it usually takes someone writing in an "appropriate" grapholect, or speaking in an "appropriate" dialect/register, to get people to understand that correcting the way others speak, or write is a form of oppression, and silencing. This practice is more often racist and classicist than not. We can’t hear about oppression from the oppressed unless they prove themselves to be worthy of the oppressors attention first.
Maybe Sam Pepper should have watched this episode.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.
And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.
Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too. These Space Valkyries should have been left in.
They really should have.
I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.
Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.
I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”
DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.
These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.
Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.
