Miles Davis - Au Bar Du Petit Bac (Elevator to the Gallows/Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud: Original Soundtrack Recording)
Every time I see this panel,
Carry on hitting like a girl, ladies.
Line I plan to use at some point but haven’t yet:
Meat-Headed Jerk: “Haw, you hit like a girl!”
[Female Character X, who has been leading Meat-Headed Jerk on with weak punches and acting like she’s just barely keeping up her end of the fight, now deploys the Mother Of All Haymakers and lays him out in one blow]
Female Character X: “Yeah, well, you take a punch like an asshole, asshole.”
This is the line that almost made me stand up and cheer in the theater.
I’ll go you one better: this is the line that turned me from someone who didn’t give a rat’s ass about Captain America to someone who wanted to write years of stories about him.
Say what you will about the rest of the movie (and there’s plenty to say, because it’s definitely not perfect), but they nailed exactly what’s awesome about Steve Rogers in that one line, and drove it home in every scene before and after this one. That’s why the movie, for all its flaws, works.
Conversely, that’s where Green Lantern completely missed the mark, and why it’s easily the worst superhero movie I’ve seen in some time. Hal’s an asshole for the entirety of the movie, and unlike Kirk in Star Trek, he’s not even an asshole who’s always right. He’s not ever even effective. GL does nothing to persuade us that Hal remotely deserves the power he’s been given, whereas Captain America is built around that fact. That, in a nutshell, is why CA works and GL doesn’t.
The best damn thing you’ll see all day
Batman fan Doğan Can Gündoğdu has created an opening credits sequence for The Dark Knight Rises which the real movie will be very lucky to top. With a pounding, industrial sounding soundtrack you’ll see the standard opening credits and then flashes of ice and other items as the credit sequence takes on an unsettling ton. Just go watch it!
The smartest man you never knew.
&It wasn’t until he was dead they finally recognized that the patents in Marconi’s name should have been Tesla’s.
Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” using film dialogue in place of the singing.
I hate when I don’t think of things first.
wooooow coooooool <3 *-*

Found the Angouleme poster in a high res, but in lineart form.
How does he keep all of those lines straight in his head?
That is a very good question.
#Arkh wants and NEEDS our supporters to spread the word in real life. Are you in any queer organizations, PoC organizations, QPoC organizations or just plain old human rights organizations? Are you in a major city and can just hand out flyers on the street?
WE NEED YOU.
Be a part of Arkh’s street team!
The street team is an attempt to get Arkh into the eyes of people who might not spend a lot of time online, but would have an interest anyway.
The best thing about joining the street team is that all it requires is your TIME and DEDICATION.
The above is a flyer you can print and distribute at your leisure. You can download the PDF here. Distribute these flyers WHEREVER YOU WANT. Leave them in apartment buildings, libraries, stores, universities, and just plain hand them out on the street.
And if you want to, and you can? TAKE VIDEO! Send us video of your exploits and help us let the world know that Arkh is here and Arkh is EVERYWHERE!
That said, Arkh is looking for people in NYC to be part of the NYC street team. We will specifically plan a Saturday or Sunday to hang out in Manhattan and hand out flyers. We also need someone to video us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you’re available!
Very, very worthwhile effort. Please give these folks a moment of your time and go read their message!
The Audition from Mr. Show
If I ever audition for anything I’m doing this.
The perfect sketch.
“Perfect sketch” is exactly correct.
Legally required by the bylaws of the Alternative Comedy Act of 1998 to reblog the “perfect sketch” when it shows up on my Dashboard.
Reblog, reblog, reblog!
Greatest Mister Show sketch of all time.
OF ALL TIME!
Always, always, always reblog.

So I just heard about this woman today and I am ecstatic to hear that a person like this existed. I’ll let Ben Thompson of Badass of the Week explain it:
Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in…
That this woman’s life has not been made into like seventy movies, Wong Fei-Hung-style, is irrevocable proof of the existence of sexism. I would buy all of the tickets. ALL OF THEM.
