Doing dishes on a Friday night while listening to “Welcome to Night Vale.”

So I saw this gif of Wonder Woman and at first I was like daaamn.  But then I thought it was a damn shame Annie Edison hasn’t dressed up as Wonder Woman for a Halloween episode.

Fanart request: Room 303 as the DC Trinity.

Abed = Batman (of course)

Annie = Wonder Woman

Troy = Superman

Child at work told me that, for Halloween, he’s going as an “ugly turtle, from the ugly turtles movie.”

From your mouth to Micheal Bay’s ears, kiddo.

Rant ahead

I try to stay out of social justice issues on tumblr because I think the format lends itself to a toxic non-dialogue, but I need to get something off my chest here.

Malala Yousfazi just won the Noel Peace Prize for her work advancing girls’ education in Pakistan. I get to the end of the BBC article and I see the second comment (now sunk well into the comments):

She still wears a head-scarf - so I think that she is definitely NOT showing Muslim girls the true path to freedom - She’s just as repressed as the rest - wear what the hell you want - then you are FREE!

Yes, because, you know, no woman would ever choose to wear a head scarf, she’s obviously being forced to, obviously if she wore “what the hell” (sic) she wanted, she wouldn’t wear a head scarf.

I mean, after all, you can totally tell a woman’s personality and beliefs from the way she dresses, right? Cover your head? You’re repressed and fanatical. Wear a short skirt and a low-cut top? Total slut. Short hair and rarely in a skirt? Lesbian (I could do a whole post on how I’ve seen that used to pressure girls into being more “feminine”). Skirts all the time in pink and floral prints? Girly girl, no need to take her seriously.

I’m sure the initial commenter would deny they meant everything in the above paragraph, but I don’t think they realize how much women get our clothing policed all the time - men too, although to a lesser extent. People can wear whatever the hell they want, including head scarves if they so choose. There’s no one “right” way for a person to dress.

Fortunately a bunch of other commenters have been taking them to task for it, which restores a bit of my faith in humanity.

I finally caved and watched the long preview for The Legend Ends and it didn’t spoil me on anything I didn’t know already, so expect some gifs over the weekend.
Meanwhile this screenshot (see it in full size) is making me wish I had the money to visit Japan again.

“There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.”

Needs one for Draco and Longbottom; those actors changed radically over the course of the movies.

Man, I don’t know how I feel about the finale of Space Dandy. I mean, it was great, even in the not-HD mess that free Hulu can sometimes be, but it’s also over.

I could have watched this season forever.

But anyway, I loved how in the end it goes from anthology series with no continuity to CONTINUITY FOR EVERYONE~~~!!!

… okay, you know what this series is? It’s Excel Saga, only to the eleventh degree. And I loved it. Bravo - even with a few dud episodes, this season was fantastic.

This is what happens when you give Ian deathnote. 

Ian’s mom’s name will be forever a mystery.

Old but awesome.

Extras Between Chapter 8 and 9

[TN: usually I would have included this in the last chapter’s translation, but it was getting long enough already, plus it was late and I sort of forgot.]

Okinawan Interjections

There are many interjections unique to Okinawan, and it can be fun to memorize and say them.

Too is used to praise your partner, as in “Too, dippagwaa natoo-sa" (Yeah, that was excellent), or when hesitatingly starting a sentence, as in "Too, naa, deeji natoon" (Oh, why, that’s dreadful). And when someone is pouring a drink for you, you repeat "Too, too, too,” meaning “That’s about right,” and if you say a strong “Too!" it can indicate "Stop!"
