Dear Orphan Black Fans

WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHEN OUR SHOW STARTS

I was planning on posting this once Lego came out with a Green Lantern but who know when that will be. Maybe if enough of is ask them for more characters other than Batman we can build our own DCUs.

You mean there’s a Lego Green Lantern in the movie, but not corresponding toy?

Surely that’s illegal.

So I’m going to do a Pantheon live stream next month. I’m pretty scared though… I have no “techniques” to teach you or anything and it might turn out horribly.

Memorize the following phrase…

"Here’s one I made earlier".

There’s an awesome Easter egg hunt taking place right now throughout New York City. The Big Egg Hunt NY, hosted by Fabergé, is a three-week-long scavenger hunt for over 250 giant Easter egg sculptures, each sculpted and decorated by an amazing selection of artists, designers and architects.

Last month we featured Kevin Champeny’s beautiful paisley Sweet Pysanka egg. Other participants include Zaha Hadid, Tracey Emin, Ralph Lauren, Jeff Koons, Diane Von Furstenberg, Debbie Millman, Morphosis, Julian Schnabel, Debbie Millman, Martin Handford, Martha Stewart, Cynthia Rowley, Dain, Cost, Faust and many more.

The giant eggs have been hidden all over the city and scavenger hunt participants can download a free smartphone app which provides a map detailing the location of each egg and alerts the user when they’re getting close to one of the eggs. Participants also have the chance to win jewel-encrusted Fabergé pendants valued between $30,000 and $48,000. When the hunt ends the eggs will each be auctioned off for charity with proceeds benefitting Studio in a School and Elephant Family.

Click here for more photos of the Big Egg Hunt eggs.

We’ll be hitting the city tomorrow to see them all at Rockefeller Center.  We’ll get photos.

The Egg Store is where you can get merchandise like mini replicas of the eggs.

Anonymous asked: My corgi always manages to pee on his little stubby feet every time we go for a walk. Does Otis do that? I don't know how to get him to stop peeing on himself.

thefrogman:

Otis recently learned how to lift his rear stumps to more accurately claim bushes for Wales. He hasn’t had any trouble peeing on his feet, though he has fallen over when he lifted his leg with too much enthusiasm. 

I’m not really sure what advice I can give. Perhaps someone can leave a tip or link in the comments. Maybe you can get him little rain boots like this piggy has. 

I for one desperately need to see footage of Otis rolling over while attempting to pee.

Navajo nation officially stands against the Redskins

In a 9-2 vote in favor of the legislation last Thursday, the Navajo Native Council passed legislation officially opposing the continued use of Washington’s football team name, the “Washington Redskins.” 

UN human rights expert on indigenous people’s rights James Anaya concurred with the vote, saying that the name is a “hurtful reminder” of the indigenous people’s history and genocide by America’s colonizers: “[T]he term for many is inextricably linked to a history of suffering and dispossession.”

Are the Navajo from the Washington area, then?

being vegan is so emotionally draining like i can’t even look at someone drinking a milkshake without wanting to cry this is ridiculous if your ‘food’ makes me emotionally distressed that might be a sign that it’s not good

Get over yourself. oh my god

Sorry, what?

Is that really desirable?



This is one of my favorite Silver Age issues of Superman.  He loses the ability to absorb energy from the sun (because reasons), so every time he performs a super-feat, he has to eat food like a person.  Well, i say ”like a person”, but more like a bus full of linebackers.  So he runs into a burger place with a sign outside reading “over 7 million sold” and pulls a Ron Swanson, saying “Give me all the hamburgers you have”.  I think he went and made some diamonds to pay for them or something.

It gets fixed, and he’s okay again, and Clark goes past the burger place, but not the sign reads “over 8 million served”.

The Silver age was a great deal of fun.  Demands for continuity were few and far between, and if someone wanted to do a story where Superman fought a guy who was a thinly disguised Popeye pastiche, or an alien who was allergic to superheroes, well, what the heck’s stopping you?

“You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels. We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.” I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.” He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.”

Waiting patiently to hear when he auctions or raffles them for charity.

Not to mention when the Internet figures out which location of Michaels it was, and make the manager’s life a morass of shame and degradation.

A lot of people are asking why i used a picture of Paul McCartney for my mashup of John Lennon’s “Imagine”.

I thought the answer was obvious. Paul McCartney IS John Lennon

Everyone knows that the original Paul McCartney died some time in the 1960s and was replaced by a double. But I guess you only know half the story. When choosing a replacement impostor they realized that only one person knew Paul and his mannerisms well enough to convincingly portray him: John Lennon in facial prosthetics.

Obviously they could never be seen together in public. This is why the Beatles stopped performing and became a studio-only band (John playing Paul’s parts via multitracking techniques which quickly proved creatively revolutionary.) Nonetheless, the magic act was very taxing on John, and the Beatles eventually had to split up so he could perform both lives separately.

When he was non-fatally wounded by a bullet in 1980, he realized he was at a crossroads. He had come to enjoy his life and career as Paul McCartney, who was at an all time creative high with hits like “Temporary Secretary" and "Wonderful Christmastime”. And so, he faked his death as John Lennon and assumed the role of Paul full time.

So next time you’re mourning the premature loss of the great songwriter John Lennon, just think about him in 1985, healthily and contentedly singing “Spies Like Us" under 20 pounds of Hollywood makeup.

To get away from Yoko, it would be worth every moment.

Pro tip - They never want to talk about you on these daytime talkshows, they want to trot out someone you have a beef with and watch the spars fly.
