NEED. YEs, I definitely need that. I wonder if it’s still safe to serve foodstuffs from?
… and of COURSE reverse image search gives me no source, but a gazillion pinterest hits.
i really like looking at google image searches for “firemen rescuing cats” or something because you get super cute pictures like
AND THEN THERE’S THIS ONE
"THAT’S RIGHT TWAS I that set the house ablaze!!!”
"And I would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for you pesky firemen!"
Live from the Thrilling Adventure Hour panel at NYCC: they’re shooting a TV pilot of Beyond Belief with the same actors as the podcast, with John Rogers from Leverage as a producer! !!!!!
Holy crap! Amazing news!
these are both still male dominated like……….this is wrong this is not more women than men look its plain and simple wtf
Men, despite dominating STEM fields, demonstrating that they do not even have a basic grasp on math.
Here's the most politely worded explanation (a lot of harsh language being hurled at the OP) that also includes a link to the source:
Except if you look at the full photo and not the cropped one, you’ll see there’s more to it.
Yes, those first two are not female dominated. But the text just before the list also says that many have an even mix of men and women. While it could definitely be argued that the first one still doesn’t quite fit into an even mix, the second one does. The last three are all over half female.
While tumblr is all eager to point out the mistake of men and claiming they are stupid for not knowing basic math (as far as I’m aware, we don’t even know if a man or woman wrote the page, but I could have missed the name somewhere), you don’t even do basic fact checking to know this is a misleading post.
The hit podcast brings ‘Sparks Nevada’ and ‘Beyond Belief’ to comics, and we talked to them.
All new exclusive interview with Acker and Blacker which talks about the just-announced monthly comics for Beyond Belief and Sparks Nevada!
Take a close look at the sneak preview artwork… anyone paying attention should be able to tell what it looks like the story is the first story they’re planning to tell is!
Day Fifteen - Recommendations
Oooh! First recommendation is The Hidden Almanac by Ursula Vernon. She took inspiration after hearing so many people describe Welcome to Night Vale as “Lovecraft meets A Prairie Home Companion”, giving it a listen, and feeling that the Prairie Home Companion comparison wasn’t quite right. She then thought about what would happen if Lovecraft met Garrison Keillor’s other show, The Writer’s Almanac, and thus The Hidden Almanac was born. The show broadcasts three times a week, but with each episode only lasting three or so minutes you can catch up with the entire run (it started last September) in about eight hours of listening.
Next recommendation is Ursula’s other podcast, Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap, which she hosts with her husband Kevin. On it they get drunk and review pre-packaged foods of varying qualities. Remember, They Eat It So You Don’t Have To!
Leverage - The best con/heist show of the past decade. Great characters, smart writing, and a lot of fun.
And lastly, Black Books. A British sitcom from the early 2000’s it’s incredibly funny and features the habitually drunk/hungover/irritable Bernard Black, a misanthropic bookshop owner. The comedy never quite goes black, but I’d call it very dark grey so watch yourself.
Day Thirty - Favorite Fan Moments
There’s so many things to talk about, but my absolute favorite moment will always be getting to see Karen Gillan and Dave Foley in Sparks Nevada at the live show. The crowd was excited during the theme song, got louder when Mark and Marc entered the stage, went nuts when Dave Foley came out, and absolutely went wild when Karen Gillan came up on stage. It was exhilarating to be part of that audience.
Day Eleven - Beyond Belief Episodes
Favorite Beyond Beliefs? Let’s start with the Pterodactyl Jones trilogy.
* The Devil and Mr. Jones
* The Devil You Know
* Jones on Third
And to top those off, a Sadie-only and Frank-only episode
* Rosemary’s Baby Shower
* Molar Express
Day Twenty-Six - Guest Stars
Every one of Tom Lennon’s appearances has been gold (though I do kind of wonder what it would’ve been like to keep Patton Oswalt as Pterodactyl Jones.) And as much as I love Nathan Fillion as Cactoid Jim, I really want to hear one of the New York Shows where John Hodgman played Jim. The way the Bens have descibed those performances make them sound inspired. I’ve also started checking out Key & Peele after Keegan Michael Key’s performance as the Die-brarian.
Potential guest stars? For a long time I was amazed that Wil Wheaton had never done the show, but soon the long wait will be over. I’d love to hear Kevin Conroy meet up with Philip Fathom, and Bill Nighy or Christopher Walken would just be astounding.
Showing my Leverage bias here, but I think John Rogers would do an excellent Beyond Belief or Captain Laserbeam.
