Urgent security update

staff:

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the…

Okay guys,

We’re in a bit of financial trouble; our car needs a $500 repair before we go on our road trip to see John’s family (her mother has brain cancer but lives two thousand miles away) and Supernatural DC
The gas alone is expected to cost $400 and we just don’t have that much money

So I am selling Mary.

I love Mary. She was a bitch to paint (painting is not my forte) but I stuck it out because I had wanted her for a long long time.


She’s life-sized and really freaking cool, but she’s not something I need and we’re getting kind of desperate with the travel date coming up so suddenly

[So I listed her on eBay]
Her starting price is kind of high, but it’s less than minimum wage for the amount of hours I put into her alone (not including materials) and, to be honest, if she sold for less I would cry too much for it to be worth it

I urge you to check her out
And, if you’d feel so inclined, I’d appreciate if you could reblog this in case she is exactly what someone out there is looking for

I really want her to go to a good home guys, please spread the word?

Thank you,
Isa

Israeli occupation soldiers randomly arrest two 11 year old Palestinian children on their way to school in Hebron this morning. 

This needs to go viral. This is horrible. These boys are 11 years old.

Watch. Share.

Two years ago today my company Geek & Sundry launched with this Guild music video. It’s been an amazing ride, the worst days and the best days of my life. I can’t tell you everything I learned about starting and running a company here, but I can tell you this: Without you guys to make content for, I would never have been able to do this the hard, less trodden way. You keep us going. 

Because you guys make it so rewarding, by meeting you at cons, by seeing your comments and your shares, it makes all the hard work worth it. That’s why I stay on the web, because I love that connection with you guys, truly.

We’ve learnt a lot of things about ourselves and what kind of content we want to make and what we are incredibly proud of and what we don’t want to make again, but at the core of it, I just hope we get to make things that make you laugh or game, and can become a fan of. Thank you for continuing to make that happen by watching our stuff.

Going forward I’m excited to be more focused and keep doing what we do best, at the same time expand beyond YouTube, even. We have some cool stuff in the works, promise! 

On April 16th Spooked, a show I’ve had a LOT of hands on participation with, launches on Hulu and YouTube, it goes back to what The Guild was, a quirky comedy, and I’m excited for you to see it.

Also this Saturday, April 5th, is International Tabletop Day! It’s a day we want everyone to play board games with their friends, wherever you are. Lots of events happening around the world, thousands actually, go to tabletopday.com to see the listings near you.

So anyway, thank you for two awesome years, I hope we add value to your geeky lives. See you at the next con, or on the channel!

Attention all followers!
Consider this a straight-up plea for help to signal boost the bejeezus out of a program I am launching at my library here in Toronto, geared at all young fanfiction writers who want to meet up with other teens IRL to discuss and critique each others’ writing and generally spend some time hanging out being awesome.
The Teen Fanfiction Writers’ Coalition is coming to Toronto Public Library.
This project is really close to my heart, and it’s also a complete first for my library system—maybe a first for any library system, who knows? All I know for sure is there are literally tens of thousands of teens out there who write and share their fiction online, and as a teen librarian I want to give them a safe space to come and meet likeminded youth out in their own city.
Held at Cedarbrae Library in Scarborough, meetings will take place on the last Friday of every month, beginning April 25th, from 4:30-6:00 pm. We might add sessions depending on what demand is like. All fanfiction writers ages 12 to 18 are invited. I don’t care if you’re a seasoned fanfic writer or just starting out; just come. We also encourage any original writing you’d like to share. Most importantly, all ships and fandoms are welcome. This is a 100% safe space for anything you happen to support and like writing about. Tell your friends. Get your friends to tell their friends. I want to see a complete fanfiction takeover up in this joint.
Anyone who has more questions can feel free to leave me an ask. More information is also available through the Toronto Public Library website here, or you can click the hi-res version of the above flyer for more details.
To everyone else: please, please, reblog the crap out of this. There’s a good chance some of your followers are teens living in Toronto or the surrounding area, and if this can provide a creative outlet for even a few of them, I will consider it a job well done.

Kaiser poll: Many Americans were unaware of health care law deadline

fishingboatproceeds:

If you’re uninsured in the U.S., Monday is the deadline. Go ahead and do it now while the web site isn’t overwhelmed. I did this (and have guided friends through it), and it’s usually really easy. (In my experience, it can be quite hard if there’s a problem with ID verification, but that’s rare.)

We signed up for insurance in half an hour, paid a week later when the bill showed up, and were insured. I know that’s not everyone’s story, but I do think it’s most people’s stories. I was really intimidated by the web site and the whole process, but it does work, and the subsidies make insurance affordable for most people who aren’t medicaid-eligible.

Get insured.

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

THIS IS ALL SHADES OF PERFECT
