The debut of this female Thor will see a brand new Thor series launched, which means the end of the current Thor: God of Thunder series by writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic. Aaron will stay on as the writer of the new Thor series, but rising star Russell Dauterman will now be on art duties. Aaron is adamant about the new Thor’s gender not being a gimmick or anything less than the original.

“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before,” Aaron said in a press release.

However, there are those who aren’t impressed:

I feel like all of the forced fanfare and attention they give it does the opposite of the intended effect. Rather than simply having a woman take up Thor’s hammer and rock it out as if it’s business as usual like they should, they have to say “Look! Look! A woman!” That’s not equality, that’s a sideshow. If Steve Rogers picks up the shield again in a few months, do you imagine they’ll issue a big press release to say “Attention! Captain America is a white guy again!”

Friends,

Do you guys read web comics? If so, which?

Dexter’s Laboratory - Rude Removal (Original Banned Episode)

Why should you watch this? Because this is terribly, hilariously rude. I mean, the title card has DeeDee flipping the bird at the audience. Amazing.

What if your daydreams were like a movie set. And one day you’re just daydreaming away and all of a sudden you hear “Cut! That’s a wrap.” and your daydream just stops.

And the lead actor that plays you goes up and starts chatting with the gaffer and as they walk way it slowly becomes apparent that they’re dating. Which is surprising to you because you’re not gay and you wonder what that means.

And now you’re lying in bed having an identity crisis and worst of all no daydreams to take your mind off it.

Okay so I have no idea where this came from. Except to say that when I woke up at 6:30 this morning, this was the most important thing on my mind and I had to share it before falling back asleep.

What if your daydreams were like a movie set. And one day you’re just daydreaming away and all of a sudden you hear “Cut! That’s a wrap.” and your daydream just stops.

And now you’re lying in bed having an identity crisis and worst of all no daydreams to take your mind off it.

The idea is that you spend that afternoon on the floor trying to communicate the critical minutiae of furniture making to your resigned partner; i.e. how to hold a particular piece of “wood,” in aid of screwing it in, without coming across as a very severe and unforgiving person.

You might not know it, but you owe some of your most glorious memories to an artist by the name of Charles “Chuck” Jones. Born in 1912, the late animation master helped bring to life Bugs, Daffy, Porky Pig and Elmer Fudd as one of several developers, and himself created lovable characters like Pepe, Wile E. Coyote, Marvin the Martian, Michigan J. Frog and Road Runner. Without him, we’d never have the simplistic genius of “The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics” or “What’s Opera, Doc?” which the die hard fans could hardly forget. Not to mention, “Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and the original “Phantom Tollbooth” animation. Good ol’ Chuck directed those paragons of nostalgia too.

In Coraline (the film), why didn’t the Other Mother finish her rhyme?

"In each of three wonders I’ve made just for you, a ghost’s eye is lost in plain sight."

Why not use “view” instead? I’m sure it was purposeful, but what the reason?

“A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.””
— "A Man Said to the Universe", by Stephen Crane [x]
