I'm working to get a job in the local shipyard. I'm hoping to also get an apprenticeship in welding.

Sorry if the video is a bit shaky but I did the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. The CEO of Yahoo! sent out the challenge to all of Tumblr and now I’m sending it out to my brother Christian, Autumnvillecat, and the Misty Thistle Pipe and Drum Band of Ketchikan, Alaska.

The challenge is either donate $100 to the ALS Association or $10 and get a bucket of ice water dumped on you and then challenge three other people to do it too.

Got this poster finished a little late due to assorted sundry distractions, but HEY LOOK: it’s our poster for tomorrow’s Bad Movie Night!

August’s theme is LOST IN SPACE. Our two feature films will be:

  • GALAXY QUEST at 6pm PT. What if Star Trek fans made a movie about if the actors from Star Trek found out Star Trek was real? What if they weren’t allowed to use any actual Star Trek properties? Could they really find a more perfect analog for William Shatner than Tim Allen? (Respective answers: They did, and it’s this movie. It’d still be painfully blatant. No, they probably couldn’t have.)
  • STRANGE FRAME at 7:45 pm PT. Rock and roll, sort of! Animation, vaguely! Youthful rebellion, I guess! Animal people, LGBTQ representation, and celebrity voice actors, all in more confusing forms than you’d hope for! (With special villain appearance by A GUY WHO IS BASICALLY MOK FROM “ROCK AND RULE” but ACTUALLY IS VOICED BY TIM CURRY instead of someone who sounds kind of like him!) Strange Frame is a movie that does a lot of things halfway, but one thing it doesn’t skimp on is flat-out weirdness.

WHERE: http://livestream.com/ijbmn!

WHEN: Starting at 6pm PT/9pm ET!

Be there! Face down the endless starry vault of the universe with us! In space, nobody can… hear you… watch bad movies. So watch some bad movies. With us! Bad Movie Night!

Yuss. I’m all over that!

It’s another free swatch day at Spoonflower! If you order any design on eco canvas, you’ll get it free, without even having to pay shipping, no credit card required. If you get one of my designs, I still get paid for it! It’s one of those nifty ways you can support me without spending any money, and you get something cool. And the awesome thing about this round of free swatches is, it’s canvas, which means you can make cool patches out of it. Sew it onto a bag, make a wallet out of it, the canvas stands up to it. The above are not my only designs, so check out that link above and find something you like for freeeeeee!

Reblog for ‘noda. Free pretty fabric!

I think I’ve got this site bookmarked. I’ll check out rosalarian’s stuff since it’s free :3

If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you

Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!

You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2  and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.

I’ll look at it tomorrow when I feel better but it looks like a great resource for anyone who doesn’t have immediate access to life drawing classes. Cat, check this out when you get the chance.

That’s too cute! I needed to see that today.

Just got back from watching Guardians of the Galaxy with my dad and I have to say that I was thoroughly entertained. It’s saying something when a man who hasn’t been to the theater in eight years thinks your movie was “pretty fun”.

Important.

This is so important because I try to explain this to people and they don’t get it.

PLEASE BOOST
I have this phobia and people always laugh. I also have a problem with swarms of things.

For the longest time, I just thought I had a weird quark. I can’t eat strawberries because the seeds in it causes me to feel nauseous. Same with lotus seeds, certain types of leopard print, & tiny balls of lint. It’s nice to know that this thing has a name. It’s nice to finally not be alone in feeling such aversions to “silly” things.

I think I remember you telling me about this year’s ago. I’m sorry if I didn’t take it seriously back then.

I’ve been catching up with The Thick of It and I have to say that I completely fell in love with all of Malcom’s shouting and swearing (as played by Peter Capaldi). Plus, there are times at work when I need a little tiny version of him to deal with customers for me. This is what goes on in my head when I’m waiting for people to shut up.

For those in the know, if I was to get my mum to read Wonder Woman, which run would be the best to get her started? She’s only ever known the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman and I think she should expand her horizons a bit.

Wonder Woman is not my forte, sadly. But Newsarama can help you out. http://www.newsarama.com/15452-10-wonder-woman-stories-worth-checking-out.html

Thanks, I’ll check it out after work. My mom is a huge Browncoat and I think she’d be interested in other stories beyond the Firefly universe.

I decided to become a comedian at the age of 14. At that point I didn’t know how to be one—but I was eager to learn.

One of the first things I did was visit my local Blockbuster videotape rental store. Turn right as you enter, head to the middle section directly after the really old action…
