Everyday I'm wandering fandoms. Comics. Cartoons. Manga. Anime.
Movies. TV. Books. Video Games. Meta.
Silver Light



A brief history of fandom, for the teenagers on here who somehow think tumblr invented fandom:

  • 1960s: with the advent of Star Trek, fandom moves into the public sphere for the first time with a television in almost every home, creating a large…


i love that kai partakes in this.





"Made ya look!"

I have never hit ‘reblog’ so fast in my life.

Got me everytime!]

Everyone needs this on their blog

We (librarians) are very afraid to confront it. It smacks of bitterness. Privatizing information and knowledge management work makes such information infinitely vulnerable to exploitation. If the public is pissed about library weeding projects now, wait until the public realizes that corporations are actively preventing the ability to find certain information in the first place. Colbert just shone a small light in the corner with Lepucki’s California and Amazon. It’s bigger and meaner than we ever imagined, and that’s coming from a person who pffffts at conspiracy theories.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 

While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.

That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

womp womp

Touts…as “Netflix For Books!”

…you mean…A LIBRARY?

This makes me sick.

Signal boosting this in the hopes that someone decides to join their local library instead of supporting selfish, money-grubbing companies with no regard for a community. Please join me, this is important for our future.

Imagine if we had no libraries, and this $150 a month was your only choice.

That’s where we’re headed. Support your local library, not greedy corporate monsters.

Pokemon X and Guardians of the Galaxy … god, I’m not even sure. Does Groot count as a Trevenant?

Mario Kart and GotG … I dunno, sounds like a blast to me.

A Georgia family is in a “race against time” to find a kidney donor for a father of two and 24-year police veteran who faces fatal renal failure.

Raleigh Callaway, a 49-year-old father of two and long-time investigator with the Greensboro Police Department in Georgia, recently learned that he has “Stage 5” kidney failure, his wife told FoxNews.com.

"It’s the end stage," Kristi Callaway said. "We’re in desperate need for a match."

The Callaways, who have two daughters, ages 2 and 4, went public with their plea on Wednesday, launching a Facebook page called, “Our Daddy Needs a Kidney.” The social media page has garnered nearly 4,000 followers since it was created less than 48 hours ago.

Callaway, who has had chronic kidney disease for about 10 years, is being treated at Emory Hospital in Atlanta. As of 10:30 a.m. Friday, the transplant center received 300 phone calls from prospective donors wanting to be tested, Callaway’s wife said.

Since learning of her husband’s grave condition this week, Kristi Callaway said, “We are just going full speed ahead hoping and praying that he is going to get a match sooner rather than later.”

Callaway explained the complexity involving kidney donations, saying, “It only takes one donor, but it takes a lot of people to be tested to find that match.”

Our girls adore their Daddy as if he hung the sun, moon and stars. Our girls deserve to have their father walk them down the aisle, and he can’t bear the thought of not seeing them on their wedding day. A new kidney would give him the life and time needed to witness the birth of our grandchildren. One person, just one person, could change our entire family’s lives forever.

Please, if you’re willing to find out if you’re the one who could be a match, reach out to me. God bless each person who took the time to read this. The number to call Emory Transplant is 855-366-7989. Let them know you’d like to be tested as a donor match for Raleigh Callaway. His dob is 3/5/65. They prefer the donor call them so they know the donor isn’t being pressured. Thank you so very much! Please share with your friends, so we can reach as many potential donors as possible!” ~Kristi Callaway

Okay, say what you will about YJ’s cancellation. Say what you will about how much you don’t like TTG. Say what you will about DC/WB’s choices and how frustrated you are that they don’t listen to the fans.

But you guys … we’re getting Khary Payton talking to himself as both Cyborg and Aqualad. Just … is this a dream?


think about the concept of a library. that’s one thing that humanity didn’t fuck up. we did a good thing when we made libraries



Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail.
Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes.
Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.


I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!

I would like to point out beware of the thin ones of either gender. Big hulking muscles are not proportionate to strength. Or as my biology teacher put it, what would hurt more, a loose rubber band or one that’s twisted up of stored energy?



ok this is really important to me and everyone who lives in eastern canada, so if you can donate ANYTHING, please do it.
Basically, there is only one abortion clinic in the maritimes of canada (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island) and our provincial and federal government both refuse to fund it, forcing it to close. Now, women will have to drive at least 8 hours to receive a proper and safe abortion. Abortions are available in hospital, HOWEVER, we currently have the two doctor rule in place, where a woman needs two doctors to say the pregnancy is threatening to her life, or will cause complications in the future, before a pregnancy can be terminated. This rule does not take into consideration: rape, mental health or financial situations.
For those who say “abortion shouldn’t be birth control”, I highly doubt women have 1000$ to throw around on “birth control”.
The clinic provided financial assistance for youth who couldn’t afford the full cost, and without this system, women will be forced to carry a pregnancy to full term just trying to save up the money.
On Friday, July 18th, the clinic is closing unless Fredericton Young a Feminists and Reproductive justice NB reach their goal of 100 000k. A large group of pro choice supporters will be rallying together to march from the clinic to the legislative assembly building, carrying wire clothes hangers. I know that most of you cannot attend in person, but please support our march financially.
I have almost 1000 followers. If all of you give 10 dollars, and reblog this, we could reach the goal by the deadline.
Please, don’t see it as supporting an abortion clinic, but as supporting our right to choose, which will be stripped from us in 3 days without your help.

This is a blog post that’s incredibly confusing and painful for me to write.

Yesterday morning, Josh forwarded me a tweet that said:

TIL: Max Temkin, co-creator of Cards Against Humanity, raped a friend of my friend while attending Goucher College. I don’t support CAH.

We assumed this was…
