untapped aesthetic: surrealist jock
a varsity jacket but it has three arms and it’s melting
your football shoulder pads have grass growing out of them and they constantly hum
I’ve always loved you. All the best parts of my life, you were there….And I’d do anything to protect that, anything to protect that connection, to protect you….
Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!
I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pv8mCHbOrs (Part 1)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neEVoFODQOE (Part 2 - Has very important points on Reverse Racism and how it doesn’t exist, and it also dismantles the “We All Bleed Red” mentality.)
Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.
After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.
There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.
Wow. White people at it once again.

EA Giving The Sims 2 Away for Free on Origin, Along With All 18 Expansions
A decade after its release, Electronic Arts is giving away The Sims 2 for free through Origin—along with every single expansion and stuff pack ever released.
EA recently announced it would end support for The Sims 2, meaning it will no longer release content or technical fixes for the game. It will continue to offer for support to those who contact the company for help, but the game as it exists today will remain unchanged going forward (barring any efforts made by the modding community). EA contacted Sims 2 owners recently, informing them of the news and offering a free upgrade to the newly created The Sims 2: Ultimate Collection.
That same collection is now being offered to all Origin users for free for a limited time. To get it, simply open Origin, select the “Redeem Product Code” option from the menu, and enter the code I-LOVE-THE-SIMS. You have until July 31 at 10AM Pacific to redeem the code to your Origin account. If you don’t already have one, you can sign up for free.
Ultimate Collection includes the base Sims 2 game along with “every single The Sims 2 expansion pack and stuff pack.” The list of content that entails, as a result, is comically long: There have been eight expansion packs (which add new functionality and major features) and ten stuff packs (which, as you might guess, contain various stuff—primarily clothing and furniture) released since The Sims 2’s launch in 2004.
The full list of eight expansions:
And all ten stuff packs:
- Celebration Stuff
- Family Fun Stuff
- Glamour Life Stuff
- H&M Fashion Stuff
- Happy Holiday Stuff
- Holiday Party Pack
- IKEA Home Stuff
- Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff
- Mansion & Garden Stuff
- Teen Style Stuff
The Sims 4, the newest game in the series, is scheduled for launch on PC on September 2. EA released alengthy gameplay video recently which may have inadvertently revealed its plans for a Battlefield Premium-esque service for the game.

TODAY ONLY: Batman: The Complete Hush is currently on sale at Comixology for $2.99!
The normal price for this series (which includes TWELVE issues) is $17, so this is definitely a steal!
Hey everyone! If you’d like to read Tommy’s first introduction in the comics, I’d recommend picking this up today while it’s still on sale! It features a lot of interactions between Tommy and Bruce, as well as some very famous BatCat scenes if you’re a fan of that ship. People tend to love or hate this series, but I’d definitely recommend everyone give it a try and find out for themselves!
By the way, this deal expires TODAY (Wednesday) at 11pm EST, so there’s just under ONE HOUR left to pick this up.
I bought it along with The Long Halloween and The Black Mirror… I have the trades for all three, but at $3 each I figured it’d be nice to have digital copies as well. :)
I DIDN’T SEE THIS UNTIL TOO LATE I AM SO UPSET
I’m going to explain something about The Legend of Korra to you that you really need to understand:
What you have on your hands is like nothing you’ve ever aired before.
It looks a lot like Avatar: the Last Airbender, sure. There are some distinct similarities.
Celebrating 413 Followers! (give or take a few)
To celebrate how much I can’t count, I’m having my first-rd giveway, offering up this fine weapon from the Derse arsenal, the REGISWORD. Stab your enemies. Stab your friends. Send anyone who wanders into your office on a perilous assassination mission. Whatever you want, it’s yours!
- One Regisword
- A custom Derse Hitlist with targets of the winner’s choosing
WHAT THE WINNER DOES NOT RECEIVE:
- A silly hat or uniform that you are required to wear by order of the Black Queen. You didn’t want to wear that stupid thing anyway. It’s awful.
- Reblog this post. No giveaway blogs or alt accounts please.
- There’s only one winner because I ain’t Jack Noir over here and have a pile behind my desk that I can just hand out willy-nilly.
- You don’t have to be following me to win, but if perhaps if you like prop making, props, and mostly Homestuck cosplay, why not Zoidberg?
- HOWEVER, I do wish to give a thank you reward to all my followers, so those following this blog will get an extra chance to win in addition to their reblog entry.
- You must have your ask box open at the contest’s end! I’ll randomly select a winner, but if you don’t respond within 48 hours, I’ll be skipping on down to the next person on the list.
- Winner within the United States pays NO SHIPPING.
- For international shipping, I’ll cover the first 18 dollars, but the winner must cover the rest if necessary and understand the problems that may arise with international shipping (customs, lost packages, long shipping times, etc.)
Contest ends September 13, 2014! Good luck and perhaps the likelihood of winning be always in your corner.

Chocolate Orange Cupcakes with Vanilla Orange Buttercream Frosting
(adapted using the basic cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World)
Sometimes we have 90’s parties at our house and decide to make cupcakes at 1 in the morning. Surprisingly Erik didn’t fuck them up. Erik may or may not have been drunk during the making of these cupcakes.
- 1 cup soymilk or other nondairy milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1 tsp chocolate extract
- 1/2ish tsp orange extract
- A small splash of vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat your over to 350 degrees and line your muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Whisk together the soymilk and vinegar and set aside for a few minutes so it can curdle, then mix it together with the sugar, oil and extracts. It should start to get a little foamy when it’s all mixed up.
In a separate bowl mix your dry ingredients together, preferably using a sifter. Then add the wet mixture to the dry in two batches and make sure all the big lumps are gone. Don’t overmix your batter, like always.
Fill your cupcake liners 3/4 of the way full and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. You’ll know they are ready when a toothpick (or knife if you don’t have toothpicks like us) comes out clean. Cool them on a cooling rack!
While they are baking you can make your frosting:
We (and by we, we mean Jessica) don’t really follow an exact recipe for frosting. Just use a hand mixer to mix up 1/2 cup of vegan butter (earth balance rules) and some powdered sugar in a few batches until you get it to a good consistency for your liking. You can also use some vegetable shortening, but we were out of it. Then add in your extracts. We used about 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of orange extract each, roughly.
When your cupcakes are cooled, then frost them. We are lazy and just smeared the frosting on the cupcakes.
nom, nom motherfucker.
super important!! for those unaware, in the us sex toys can be sold as ‘novelty items’ and as such their production is not monitored and held to the standards of the FDA, which means sex toy producers can use extremely toxic carcinogens like pthalates in their toys. this can be averted by buying non plastic toys, but glass n stuff aren’t for everyone!
