Of all the songs to censor… isn’t Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me from Rocky Horror just about the most pointless?
I’ve realized the reason the vast majority of superhero deconstructions actually fall flat is because the writers make the mistake of assuming the Marvel and DCU are so much like the real world, and just lazily copy and past real world ethical issues to seem edgy and modern.
And like it just doesn’t work. Like we can talk about the relevancy of Superman and why he isn’t as popular anymore in a real world context, but do you honestly think in-universe, people give a shit about Superman seeming too old fashioned or not being as cool as Batman? No, they’re happy someone can punch out those goddamn alien invaders that show up in Metropolis every other week.
Or all these allegories about organizations like S.H.I.E.L.D. overreaching their authority or moving into Orwellian territory. Yeah, in the real world that’d be fucking terrifying. In a world where alien dragons invade New York and kill a bunch of people or demon overlords try to destroy the planet or evil supervillains go on rampages that routinely injure or kill dozens of people? I’m happy there’s someone keeping an eye on those guys and using advanced technology to try and stop them.
Same thing for all these “There’s not enough oversight for the Avengers and Justice League!” stories.

Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.
Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.
There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.
But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?
High five, America!
oh my god
bitch that’s the tubby custard machine
OMFG THIS POST FINALLY MADE IT TO MY DASHBOARD IM CRYING
"bitch that’s the tubby custard machine"
10,000 years from now on the dawn of a new civilization where we are all just brains in jars flying spaceships through the vast unknowable void, i will still be laughing my ass off at “bitch that’s the tubby custard machine”. this i vow.
"whats tumblr? what do you do on there?"
Practicing metal painting and textures.
I just wrote out the word hella 102 times in the shape of a helicopter please love me
That Sinestro cover pose though… It feels awkward. Is it just me? O.o
It’s not just you. I can honestly say I have no idea of what’s going on with that cover. It looks like 2 separate pictures clumsily photoshopped together. It doesn’t help that there’s all the whatever going on in the background making it harder to see.
Her body should be bent/scrunched up more -the pose plus the smoothness make her look like she has a long, oddly angled body with hipbones protruding past the navel. I… think it’s mostly that the artist didn’t account for a difference in angle? Because that’s what the hips look like from a standard frontal view on the references I Googled.
1) If I’m right, this hipbone either a little high or shouldn’t be (this) prominent, since the lower half of the body is turned. Maybe both. Now that I look at it, the navel seems a mite high too, compared to where the crotch would be.
2) This area should be more visibly bent, with rolls on the viewer’s left and the skin pulled tight to the right. Except for that half-hearted curve around the navel, there’s no indication that she’s twisting/bending here. It seems like the artist dipped inward past the hip to give her the hourglass shape. But because bodies don’t actually work that way, it creates the illusion of the aforementioned hip weirdness and an over extended rib cage.
3) I don’t know what this character’s headgear is supposed to look like but the sticky-outy-bit looks like we’re getting a frontal view… meaning that the bit near her cheek is all but stabbing her and the rest of it is sticking out at a wide angle.
And having attempted to do the pose:
Well, you can see for yourself, right?
The only easy part was the expression, since by the time I got it right I WANTED to scream and chop someone’s head off. Not only is it contorted, not only is the weapon held pretty much uselessly, not only is it impossible to replicate her snake-torso… the position of her right leg makes it nigh impossible to stand. I couldn’t even approach the angle she’s going at! It was tough even getting my leg high enough and that required me to change the way she was standing. And now I have a stitch in my side. Maybe if I’d stepped further back but I think I would’ve fallen over if I’d done that.
And it’s not a body type thing either:
While I am built stocky, I have the hourglass figure and big boobs. The fact that she’s skinnier than I am doesn’t matter -waists don’t look like that when they bend.
Also she has no irises. I’m sure it was a conservation of detail to avoid making that area look sloppy/busy but it does call to mind a certain AT4W meme….
