Wicked Runs the Wolpertinger

I dream of tornadoes and doom. Living in what used to be boreal forest now a sprawling urban wasteland.
"We must be a beacon of hope, because if you tell people there’s nothing they can do, they will do worse than nothing." -Year of the Flood, Margaret Atwood

My favorite two songs from Black Market are Methadone and Tragedy+Time. 

I am super stoked to see them at the end of the August  I think.

can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda

and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind

and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move

Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…

night vale is full of thought provoking humour and beautifully inspirational monologues but “subway? more like wowza” will always be one of the best things it’s ever come up with

it’s right at the top of the list with “what’s an egg” and “i never knew school cleaning appliances were so strong”

"Mountains? More like nothings" 

"Nice try, giant worms.

"And I was like, whatever, rich guy!”

“If Hollywood tells you a story about Mexico, they will not cast a blue-eyed, blonde for any Mexican roles, although we have a vast population of blonde, blue-eyed Mexicans. But Hollywood thinks, We need to show you a peasant with a donkey. We need to show you that this street is filthy and there are rats everywhere so you know we’re in Mexico. Sometimes the Hollywood point of view is too narrow.

…[Juárez has] problems like any other major city in the world, but it’s a modern city. It’s a fantastic city. It’s a beautiful city. So it’s your choice which part of that city to show, like a bus station, “Let’s bring in this bus from World War II, almost like the cars they have in Cuba!” Cuba was cut off from the world because of the blockade, so they don’t have modern buses. But Mexico has not been under any blockade, so we do have modern buses. So if you choose to bring in a really old, beat-up bus in order to show the world that this is Mexico and not the U.S., that’s the choice you make as a producer, but I’m not necessarily agreeing with that.”

Demian Bichir, star of The Bridge (Vulture)

just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.
