Mos Def - “Ghetto Rock”
I love the cover to The New Danger. I’ve reserved it in my “Potential Comic Book Covers Ideas” portion of my mind.
This week’s Tumblr dump includes Lovecraft/Bible mashups, demigod genetics, samurai and body wall art, and ladies punching things.
Charlie Stross put together this odd combination of the King James Bible with some H.P. Lovecraft via some bootleg Markov Chain.I’m a big fan of putting original work though processes to make new stuff – I made this poem…
Beyond Earth is an entirely new experience built on the Civilization fans know and love.
OMG YES! I GET MY (SORT OF) SEQUEL TO ALPHA CENTAURI !!!

Reasons Why San Francisco Is the Worst
2014 is slowly turning into the “Year of San Francisco.” The East Coast media in America has anointed SF as the new hub for innovation, conspicuous consumption, and comically absurd rents. New York Magazine parachuted a bunch of reporters into the Bay Areato figure out how to steal their douchebags back. The article asked “Is San Francisco New York?” No, it’s much worse. The existential crisis around San Francisco’s ascension to the heights of assholery stands in stark contrast to the fact that it is damn near unlivable for most normal people.
The end is nigh for a city that used to be a magnet for the counter-culture. San Francisco was strangled, so we decided to go over the numerous causes of death.
Everyone Worth a Damn Is Moving to Oakland
San Francisco used to be that place you moved to if you were too weird for LA, but too lazy for New York. It was a perfect city to ply your trade as a quirky motherfucker with a penchant for “edgy performance art” and whimsical scarves. That was just dandy. We liked that.
Around every corner, there could be an anarchist bookshop or a dude covered in glitter, wearing a Spongebob t-shirt, and sporting a raging hard-on. Where did that San Francisco go? Across the fucking bridge, that’s where.
Oakland is cheaper than San Francisco (but not by much), it’s close to Berkeley’s cultural gravity, and it’s just a BART trip away from what’s left of SF’s relevance. It’s also an industrial wasteland full of crime and Raider fans. You might ask yourself, What happened to San Francisco’s iconoclastic spirit…? Well, in two simple words:
There’s always been a bourgeois element to San Francisco that we all just ignored. The landed gentry of Nob Hill, Pac Heights, and Sea Cliff have always been there. They have owned their home for years, love wearing fleece sweaters, own nothing but real wood furniture, and are the type of people who tool around McCovey Cove in their yachts during Giants games. They are from a different planet and don’t mingle with the plebs. They have their world of brandy snifters, champagne flutes, cheese tastings, and obscure European automobiles. They honestly don’t care what you think.
The tech bro, on the other hand, seeks to engage in city life. They go to the same bars you do. They eat at the same restaurants. They badly want to be accepted as “cool,” while also having more money than you and getting chauffeured to work in a free corporate bus. Their insistence on trying to infiltrate the real San Francisco has pretty much killed the real San Francisco. Dolores Park, once a safe haven for burnouts to drink 40s and smoke weed at 2:30 PM on a Tuesday, is now the world’s biggest networking event for dudes who wear khakis to the gym.
In New York, Wall Street people know they’re pricks. In Los Angeles, Hollywood people are too stupid to know they’re pricks. In San Francisco, tech bros think they’re saving the world with their crackpot schemes aka “start-ups.” They’re the fucking worst.
Co-signed on the tech bros shit for daaays. Fuck those guys and their kind nationwide
But I understand that she was in a vulnerable state when she was with Hannibal. Still, when homegirl finds out she slept with a serial killer…there is no shower long enough to wipe that shit off you
Man these dudes were like gentile giants. Not raging out or being aggressive, just chill.
This week’s Tumblr extravaganza includes new media quotes, LoL cosplay, retro music posters, funny haikus, and Blade.
Here’s a part of Laurie Penny’s on The Feted Future of New Media ( via Kieron Gillen’s tumblr):
Those who have the power right now, in tech but also to some extent in media, see themselves as rejects, weirdos fighting for their place, and there are reasons for that. The emotional…
New Boondocks Season 4 trailer.
They put El-P beats in the trailer. FUCKING EL-P BEATS. Still bummed MacGruder isn’t involved though.
1. This show has probably some of the best cinematography I’ve seen in a long time. Every shot is a self-contained piece of awesome.
2. That serial killer is gonna be stuck in my goddamn head for a while, man…
For immediate release!
Marvel and DC officially announce the return of THE AMALGAM UNIVERSE!
For the first co-publishing venture in over a decade, Marvel and DC have come to an agreement to bring back The Amalgam Universe, a universe comprised of ‘amalgam characters’ of some of the most beloved superheroes of the two most exciting comic book publishers in the entire world.
Spinning out of the events of Forever Evil and Original Sin, The Amalgam Universe is a brand-new, 12 part maxi series by super scribes Geoff Johns and Brian Michael Bendis with artwork by Olivier Copiel, Bryan Hitch, John Romita jr., Alex Maleev, Mike Deodato jr., and comics legend John Byrne, making his long awaited return to mainstream comics.
The Amalgam Universe will be published biweekly this September with many of your favorite regular comics ‘going dark’ for the duration of the series.
"The fallout from The Amalgam Universe is so big to both comic book universes, the changes so overwhelming, that you won’t recognize most of your favorite titles at the end of it.” said Bendis.
When asked: why now? Both publishers, in a joint statement said: because announcing it tomorrow just isn’t that funny.
Stay tuned for more details.
This is a goddamn cruel joke, Bendis. I had a legit sadface when I read the last part
