The forgotten appearance, giving great face especially with that heavy bang!
Ok, now this is probably one of the coolest and original Geek-Art of the year ! Jed Henry got inspired by Japanese “Ukyio-e”. For those who don’t know, Rubens from Koikoikoi gives a short explaination : ”Ukiyo-e are the traditional woodblock prints from Japan, probably the most famous is the “Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Hokusai”. Mixing traditional Japanese art and Japanese vintage video games heroes… What a neat idea ! Meet Mario, Pokemon, Megaman, Kirby, Starfox and many, many more in the full article ! You also have to know that the Mario one will be on sales soon, printed by professional woodblock printer, David Bull, traditional way…
This. Just…this. Someone, pass me the box of Kleenexes. This is glorious.
WOAH! Stupendously stupendous, love this cultural mash-up
This tangent is in response to the silent shock expressed by a woman today when I got on a bus before her.
I have to say that I want and encourage the empowerment and equalization of women in all regards. I do not, however, believe it is in any way gentlemanly, proper, or even kind to treat women other than what they are — people. It’s damaging to the cause of liberation to do any more than that in my opinion.
Clearly each person is free to make his or her own decisions in how they interact with either sex. Perhaps you show a noted token of esteem to your mother or a female friend on occasion. This gesture, however, relates not to their sex but instead the closeness of your personal relationship with such an acquaintance.
Ask yourself though when the last time was when girls in our post-feminist society opened doors for guys as a sign of courtesy. I find this evident that some portion of females still want to be othered so long as it’s in their favor.
This is absurd.
It’s like me expecting the right to go about my day-to-day in nothing but a rainbow-colored thong because I’m homosexual, and am therefore flamboyant and promiscuous as a result. Taking special care to act ‘appropriately’ toward women confirms the notion that they’re second-class citizens who require help because they’re weak in some way. Both of these expectations are rooted in hurtful stereotypes.
Why would I make dubious effort to put someone before myself only because they have a uterus? There are two reasons: Either A) I want to have sex with them and am trying to garner favor with such a deed or B) I think they’re in need of extra consideration because of an impairment brought on by chromosomal hindrance. Neither of these options are that complimentary; so I think it better to have humility and be content with real equality, which in truth is such a basic necessity that it should have no unusual significance.
And why solicit pity? When did the strong minds and hearts behind feminine abolition accept a place essentially begging for recognition of their merit from others?
Chivalry in its strictest definition means to possess generosity and honor in one’s character. Therefore I think it crucial for men and women to both aspire to such a status. Thinking of this term only in relation to how women are treated is sexist and marginalizes both male worth and female autonomy.
The next step for feminism to me is the dismissal of the word as it stands. Women should strive not to be as relevant or worthy as men, but rather for all of humankind to be perceived as respected peers to each other.
There are obstacles yet to be overcome in the balance of relations between the sexes, but I can’t imagine these goals being achieved by attempting just to pull women up to a status that was never rightly above their own in the first place.

“Did Myron take his own life you will ask? Yes and no is my answer. Let it suffice for me to say that Myron is with me. Beyond that, my lips are sealed. Who is Myra Breckinridge? What is she? Myra Breckinridge is a dish, and don’t you forget it you motherfuckers, as the children say nowadays.” - Raquel Welch
