Some thoughts on life

Watching Adventures In Babysitting with my mum and younger sister for the first time I probably ten years. I had forgotten how fun a movie it was.

But even more so I had forgotten that Sarah, the sister in the movie, is a comic book reader and loves obsessed with Thor. Her character is set up by her drawing pictures of him and she’s wearing a Thor helmet and hammer throughout the film.

Think of it: a thirty year old film where one of the main characters is a young comic book geek girl who knows all about Thor. Why are there not more characters like this now, all these year later? And why do I have the (unfortunate) suspicion that it the film were made today she wouldn’t be in it?

A mouth-watering fuck-ton of hand references.

[From various sources]

Yesss delicious!

Everyone likes to joke about how hard hands are to draw, but at least there’s plenty of great reference out there! And obviously there’s always the reference attached to your wrist.

If only every difficult-to-draw thing was so convenient D;

So, uh, with more and more of my favorite webcomic creators getting themselves Patreon accounts I decided to go over and check it out. 
And look who was on the front page.
Damnit, I think I have no choice now. Time to budget out a whole new type of utilities. 

BUT it does feel good to finally be able to support these creators who have been entertaining me for so long (in some cases almost 10 years) in some way other than just buying their books.
Anyway, go support these amazing webcomics. NOW!

Tea leaves collected from Boston harbor the morning after the Boston Tea Party. 
Label reads:
“Tea that was gathered up on the Shore of Dorchester Neck on the morning after the destruction of the three Cargos at Boston December 17, 1773.”

i’m so pleased that this means someone during the event was like “yeah this is probably gonna be historically interesting” and just ran out there with, like, what, a net? some cloth? fishing around in the fucking bay to collect tea to put in a bottle? you go, buddy

Good job, anonymous 18th century person.  Your commitment to historic preservation pleases me.
