no signal in hall, round up of Tyler’s panel while i can remember it

  • Tyler’s first question was about eating a lot of pie on Road To Perdition, he was convinced he’d be fine, by the end of the day he’d learnt to go slow, good lesson learnt.
  • SOME CUTE LIL GIRL GOT SHY AND TYLER WAS LIKE “DON’T BE SCARED, SWEETIE,” because he’s an angel, she wanted to know why Derek’s eyes are yellow again, much laughter (somewhat hysterical possibly? from audience) Tyler said so would Derek, and we’ll find out as the season progresses.
  • question about photo war with Colton, Colton started it, Tyler is on the look out for terrible photographs of Colton. said he knows they’re out there.
  • asked about why Derek can’t full shift when Laura and Talia could. Tyler said it was because Derek has yet to learn the full “mastery of being a werewolf” that it’s about the purest form of werewolf. Peter’s wolf in s1 was “monstrous” because he had gone ~darkside, said in Star Wars style voice, dude is an angel AGAIN. (aside, Derek has been a werewolf his whole life, Laura was only a couple of years older, understand Tyler explaining it like that to cover up lack of writing continuity but like… surely Derek has a handle on being a werewolf by now? especially as he’s aged ten years since pilot. idk, maybe it’s about Derek not believing he’s deserving of the gift?)
  • his most surprising experience on TW so far was discovering Ian was the alpha in s1. when they were first introduced he thought Ian was only going to be around for a day and so was v cool like “hey how’s it going,” because he’s always more comfortable talking more with people he knows, so went off to hang with Posey and Dylan, but then Ian was BACK, and surprise! and now they’re bros obv.

when you see a pretty anime boy from a show you don’t watch on your dash like

WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SLICE THEIR PALM TO GET BLOOD. do you know how many nerve endings are in your hand?!?! why don’t they ever cut the back of their arm or their leg or something omfg

me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit  (via jtoday)

WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL

yes, mr. action hero, I am aware that running dramatically from the baddies at breakneck speed is important, but know what else is important? NOT GETTING SHOT. RUN IN A FUCKING ZIGZAG PATTERN ON THE OFF CHANCE THAT THE MOOKS WERE NOT COACHED IN MARKSMANSHIP BY THE IMPERIAL STORMTROOPERS.

something i drew for a banner competition :) 


Why not? She’s an original American


Did they get it right, though? There’s a long, long history of Native people being co-opted or coerced into displaying the symbols of US patriotism. And it was always done to deny the Native genocide, legitimize the US state, and consolidate the US’s power.
For example, there’s a lot of old-fashioned rhetoric out there that Native people were the first US patriots. (Take Paul Dyck’s Brulé: The Sioux People of the Rosebud, in which he describes 19th century Lakota — who were at war with the US! — as “American patriots” and asserts that “throughout the trying historical period of westward expansion, the Indian of the West never lost their allegiance to America.”) I run across this kind of talk a lot, in which someone asserts that a Native people were all about liberty and freedom JUST LIKE AMERICA, thus there’s just one big unbroken tradition of AMERICAFREEDOMLIBERTY leading from Native people to the US nation-state. What’s genocide? What’s colonialism? It was just Native-USians acting as the warm-up act for the American-Usians.
Furthermore, there’s a long, long history of the US government requiring subjugated Native people to display symbols of US patriotism. Know why so many powwows are on the Fourth of July? Because the government’s Indian Agents would only permit festivals that celebrated Christian holidays or the US nation-state.
Moreover, see the thing where serving in the US military was an official method of renouncing your NDN-ness and becoming an “American” instead. (Before the universal citizenship act, Native people got citizenship person-by-person, by doing something that asserted that they weren’t “really” Indians anymore. Serving in the military was one of those things.)
So given all that, Pocahontas dressed in red-white-and-blue, boosting for the US nation-state? How subversive is that, really? 
Note, please, the issue of patriotism and military service in Indian Country is complicated. I in no way mean to suggest that it isn’t. There are lots of reasons that NDNs will wear the stars and stripes, man, I’d love to see a nuanced exploration of that.
But re the alleged subversiveness of this illustration? The US has usually been thrilled to see NDNs don the red, white, and blue. I’m just saying.
tl;dr: Pocahontas wasn’t an American — not the way you mean it here — and portraying her as one falls solidly within the US colonialist tradition.

good point worth noting

This is why I’ve been uncomfortable reblogging this. Thank you for putting this into words. This is important.


Last night my little sister (5th grade) was making an e-mail account

She saw gender and went to click female when she noticed the “other” choice

She looked at me confused and I started to explain that some people don’t think they fit in with strictly male or female

"Oh! You mean like transgender and stuff like that. I was freaked out for a second- I thought they meant robots."

Yet another example the kids are more open-minded than adults








I want him to do ungodly things to me.
