oh shit i just remembered i saw a dress (like a normal everyday dress) at dragoncon that was printed with ancient mew, and it wasn’t the crappy rainbow/holocard style that is the only thing coming up in google, but rather looked like sandstone or something, with heiroglyphs and NOT the tcg text.

so if anyone has seen that available around on the internet anywhere, let me know

Blade Runner + pink

blade runner is a perfect example of how you can be dark and gritty and still use color and have interesting visuals in your film/game whatever

all this brown is just laziness

also last night i saw someone dressed as the dashcon ballpit and i had to explain to my friends exactly what dashcon was. it was interesting because despite spending nearly 16 hours a day online/the computer, none of them are on tumblr. and the fact that dashcon is an ongoing situation is even more astounding after attending dragoncon.

otoh we also went to a sexism-and-gender-issues-in-gaming panel and it was really heartening. so that gave me some IRL hope for the world, just, you know, knowing that this is a conversation that is being brought into real life (we had a women’s group meetup in my professional org last fall that brought a LOT of heavy discussion to the table right off the bat, no holds barred) and not just sitting around “ineffectively” on the internet and being shat on by anons.

also i think the one thing that really came out of the panel that didn’t really get picked out specifically but kind of coalesced was that a good story is a good story; designing a product to sell to a specific subset market is where things get nasty

okay but why don’t more people talk about Night at the Museum like

poc characters and people being portrayed by poc people

this movie is so good

image

and it has one of the funniest, best, most ridiculous friendships in movie history

image

and you have Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt I mean

image

and if all that didn’t convince you there’s also a t-Rex skeleton that plays fetch with one of its own ribs

THIS MOVIE

Fun fact: My cousin directed this movie.

hello i have returned from dragoncon in a sense

there was a lot of lack of crowd management

there was some interesting stuff

i missed the venture brothers panel

i saw a lot of bat specimens and skeletons for sale in the art/vendor halls? and as much as i think scientific specimens and things can be cool i discovered that those of bats just make me sad because they look so skinny and stretched out and it just looks like pictures of bats starved from white nose syndrome.

depressing.

i saw a girl dresssed as willie-in-indy’s-tux AND she was carrying the dress but i turned around to ask for a picture and she was gone

i also missed getting a photo with the fantastic Pirate Captain America

it was all pretty fun though
