Went to W00tstock while at Comic Con. THe highlight of the night for me was Rob Paulsen. He has done the voice of Pinky from Pinky and the Brain, Yakko from Animaniacs, he’s done teenage mutant ninja turtle voices. He was amazing and then he sang this… no notes just went to town. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did
I am at times very ignorant. One of the things I love about the internet, tumblr and twitter is that in many ways it’s raised my consciousness to issues I was unaware of prior.
This week my friend and I went out to one of the bars, after Comic Con at one point a couple and their friend came and set down beside us at the bar. Shortly thereafter the friend came back from the bathroom upset at an encounter she had with a gentleman in the bar, who was overly friendly with her.
She then asked if I would pretend to be her boyfriend/husband if this person came by. Sure enough the guy came by again. We saw him heading our way she leaned closer and i put my arm on her chair back. He came by and started on her again, and I then had to nicely ask him to leave my wife alone.
The guy started asking questions, and talking about her tattoo. Once again I had to say that was our business and i wasn’t playing his game and then turned away and continued talking to her and paying him no mind until he left.
The next morning I called my wife, and was very open with her about the situation. It just felt odd to me, and wrong not to tell her about it. She then explained to me that it was a very common situation and that when she travels with her girlfriends have to find a sober gentleman to stand near them or help out with overly friendly guys.
I read online about guys hitting on girls in bars and saying things that were inappropriate but I hadn’t grown up in the bar scene. I’m 39 and been married almost 18 years. I had not been exposed to anything like this since I’ve only been to bars with other married friends. I had missed the exposure to understand the actual problem.
I think if you had asked the guy in the bar he would have said he did nothing wrong, he didn’t touch her, or say anything dirty. What he didn’t see or at least comprehend was how uncomfortable he made her feel.
I was shocked to learn just how common this inappropriate behavior is. That so many women have been put in this situation that many feel their only recourse is to ask a stranger to pretend to be with them so they can enjoy their evening.
I don’t have a massive following so I know this won’t be read by 100’s, it won’t be retweeted and alter the world. That said - I am sorry that this is something that I didn’t really get until this weekend and I hope that maybe one guy reads this and learns something by it. That he doesn’t have to wait till he’s almost 40 to realize how common an issue this is. People should be able to have a good time without feeling uncomfortable.
I love Scott and Logan when they fight over Jean.
I just like Scott and Logan together lol
This scene when i opened it and red it… blew me away. It was perfect!
A couple of pictures of the new Ben Affleck Cowl.
Running door security
I miss all the cool kid parties.
'We saw Felicity going out on a date with Oliver, which made everyone's hearts flutter. I can assume everything goes perfect on the date too, right?' (x)
So this just makes me happy, i am loving the show.
John Barrowman and Erin Gray, very epic moment for me like many people out there I loved her in Buck Rogers and Silver Spoon growing up, She was an early crush for me. i think I was so nervous I shook trying to take the pic.
Hilarious story from John’s panel where he tells what happened to Scott and him driving through the Bayou when he had an upset stomach
Nicola Scott drew this amazing Hawkgirl sketch for me.

He looks at his hand like it’s the first time he’s ever seen it.
jaydick, except i can’t decide if dick is the one staring at his hand, shocked by jay’s audacity, or the guy laughing hysterically in the background, using the squad car to prop himself up so he doesn’t double over from laughter,
I so needed this this morning
Came across this today and it amused me - obviously a joke on DC
Storm — Barry Windsor-Smith
Storm and Forge the couple who were meant to be - and the couples that got me into comics.
