Nakking on Evans' Door

~*~

The home of the tumbling Nakki. She likes spaceships, comics, and lots of .gifs!

IRL her bailiwick is satellite and spacecraft design. She tends to rant about space and her job and science in comics... because it makes her happy.

She also really likes to run.

sheesells replied to your post “ugh. i mean, i tolerated AoS until it got good, so I guess there’s no reason for me to not try with Arrow? And yet I really don’t want to ahaha. If I did, around which ep does it start to actually be good?”

Come now, be honest about the exercising.

The shirtless exercising is a VERY important part of the plot. Especially in the early episodes. They were definitely worth it for that.

If any interested parties were about, this might be a link to every training/workout scene from Season 1 on YouTube. (I personally recommend the scenes at 2:03 and 4:24.)

Oliver was shirtless in literally every episode but one in the first season.

I mean, uh. That’s what I’ve heard. I would have no way of knowing that kind of statistic on my own. [shiftyeyeddog.gif]

YAAAAAAAY! I was hoping someone had made a master cut of the shirtless scenes so I wouldn’t have to you =D

Starting SDCC2015 planning

This is the year I accept that Comic Con has become a way of life for me.  I can tell what time of year it is based on my anxiety about SDCC.

But notice how this headline from the civil rights era is more sympathetic to the victims than most you’d see today.

The incident was broadcasted online by Argus Streaming News. According toKMOV 4, the blockage happened near W. Florissant, the Ferguson street where most of the protesting has happened.

The protest happened about 4:30 p.m. CDT as a group of people moved onto the freeway with their hands up.

The protesters were calling for Prosecutor Robert McCulloch to step down from the case, among other things.

McCulloch is investigating Brown’s shooting by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. However, protesters and many community members generally have argued that his background makes it impossible for him to objectively run the case. Getting McCulloch to step aside has been one of the primary demands protesters have made in the weeks following Brown’s death.

Monday’s protest was brief; the freeway was only supposed to be shut for four and a half minutes to represent the four and a half hours Michael Brown’s body reportedly lay in the street.

During the two weeks after Brown’s death, numerous protesters also told BuzzFeed they were particularly upset that Brown’s body was left in the street for hours. Many in the community felt that it was disrespectful both for Brown and passersby, and that if Brown had been white the situation would have been handled differently.

Earlier Monday afternoon, it looked as though the freeway blockade wouldn’t happen.

Protesters had discussed shutting down Interstate 270, but told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch they ultimately opted to postpone the event. “Until our demands are met it’s still on the table — some kind of highway action. When we’re ready we’ll tell everyone about it,” organizer Zaki Baruti told the paper Monday.

The call to postpone the protest came from Michael Brown’s family, the Post-Dispatch reported. The fact that some protesters opted to disregard Brown’s family’s request emphasizes the fact that the protests are populated by a diverse group of people who at times have differing views on what should happen.

Police were on the scene as the protesters blocked the freeway Monday, but members of Argus Streaming News said there were no conflicts and the protest remained orderly.

Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.

Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.

Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.

The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

  #grant ward is nazi scum  
Curious if you know of any updates on Darren Wilson? As far as him being charged? Is that still just not happening or...?

justice4mikebrown:

Darren Wilson is still free. Mike Brown was murdered 3 weeks ago and Darren Wilson still has yet to be arrested.

This is from Saturday:

Some pictures from the Sailor Moon Art Show at Hub Comics last night! Such a fun show, so many beautiful arts and lovely people ❤︎❤︎

The Art is on display through September, so you should definitely go check it out! There are lots of pieces not shown in these pics, and many of these amazing sailor cuties are for sale.

Hub Comics - 19 Bow street, Somerville MA 02143

If you were a part of this show please add your info/tumblr to this post :)

So, that Sailor Moon art show I’ve been organizing happened on Saturday, and it was spectacular. We had such an incredible amount of talent in the room, and so many wonderful people, and the room got kind of sweaty but ONLY BECAUSE IT WAS SO PACKED. 

I can’t thank everyone who contributed or helped out enough. And eternal thanks to everyone here on tumblr who helped me spread the word over the past few months! I wish you all could have been there.

I think my favorite thing about Pac Rim is that it gave us the term Drift Compatible

almualimbeatbox:

because in English there is no good way to explain a very deep, often, platonic, love and understanding between two people of the same or opposite sex. The closest thing we have is best friend and that doesn’t dig deep enough for some people or explain the absolute love between people that has nothing to do with sexual or romantic desires.

I don’t want to fuck you or romance you, I want to love and understand you on such a deep level that sometimes its like we share the same mind. We’re drift compatible.

Yeah. I will say this – I’d like to start with the defense first. If you change Wonder Woman’s costume, the blog sites blow up. There are some individuals who look at graphic novels as “canon,” and they cannot change in any way, shape or form, and that’s what makes them in some ways good fans.

I think we have to come to understand that core fans – and God bless ‘em, because they are core fans – they’re not enough to be drivers, in every sense. These worlds are bigger than just that core of fans. And at some point, if you want to remain relevant, whether it’s just comic books or moving into the TV space or the film space, you have to be cognizant of the world around you.

You know, you see that in plenty of films – the filmmakers go, ‘We’re living in a multicultural society, and if we want to survive, we have to start acknowledging that.’ Certainly as a kid, I grew up with Batman, Superman, whoever – they didn’t need to be black for me to relate to them.

But when a character like Cyborg came along, I got excited, because he looked a little bit more like me, his experiences were a little bit more like mine.

I still have my first Black Lightning that I got way back in the day, and my first Steel. And I proudly display those comics, by the way. I have a lot of comics, but those are among the ones that mean the most to me.

I look at my kids, and how they respond to films, and yeah, if there’s a Michael B. Jordan in the film, they’re going to respond differently – not just in terms of whether or not they want to see the movie, but in terms of seeing someone like them being heroic, someone like them with powers and abilities.

All those things I said to you in that earlier question about wish fulfillment – why should that be limited to a certain space and time? With comic books, Batman has remained the same age forever, Superman has remained the same age – yeah, he gets rebooted and this and that, but if you are writing in a space that is magical, and it is at the whim of the creators, and these stories change as they need to change way back from the early days of the ‘30s and ‘40s all the way up to the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and today, my Batman is not the Batman I understood when I was a kid.

They change. Their stories change. And if they can change to the reality that they do change, why can’t they make that change (of race) as well? You know, there are people who are against people of color getting involved in politics, or there was a time when people were against their getting involved with sports.

The real world has changed and moved on. If we can make that change in the real world, we can make it in this fanciful world that exists beyond us.

And if people don’t like it – we’re not waiting for permission any longer to make these changes in real life, and we’re certainly not going to wait for them in storytelling. I never asked for permission.

So for those who are against it – I get it to a degree, but as a society, we’re moving on, and we’re not asking for permission.

you know what i still really really love about cap 2?

that any other movie could have made a long sequence just of them breaking into fort meade to steal sam’s falcon gear, but instead it just trusted us to understand that in their world, that shit is basic.

like of course these three doofuses can just break into a secured military base less than 25 miles away from washington, dc and retrieve classified usaf equipment without any trouble. it’s not even worth showing, it was so easy for them.

that probably sounds sarcastic, but i’m legitimately tickled that the directors and writers just went “we could include that but why waste time showing something you already know is going to go 100% their way and also we now have more time for shit blowing up.”

Yes yes yes yes yessssssssss.

Not to mention that the text all-but-explicitly showed this was Natasha’s ground and Nat was ON IT. Steve and Sam trusted her to own that shit, and the film trusted her to own that shit, so even if the audience for some reason hadn’t realized the full extent of Natasha’s skills to that point, we were immediately placed in a world where it wasn’t even drama for her to lead something that hardcore. NOT showing how they managed it said more about faith in Natasha’s abilities than showing a badass action sequence ever could have.

something to remember

No one there understood why the police attacked. Before then, police hadn’t discouraged protesters from walking down Florissant Avenue. The midnight curfew was hours away. Prior to the police attack, neither I, nor anyone with whom I spoke, had seen any violation of the law. The only violence I witnessed resulted from a disproportionate and relentless assault by an unnecessarily militarized police force.
