Jack Nicholson preparing for the famous ax scene.
The Shining (1980)
I object to the Mass Effect one. Translator chips. Everyone was speaking their native language, it was just that Shepard understood them all as english.
Other than that, carry on.
I can’t stop laughing
Beta Kids Vinyl Figurine sneak peak photos!
Their weapons are removable and they are posable with articulating necks, arms (at varying points for each figurine) and waists.
They each come individually packed in a windowed box with gorgeous artwork depicting their respective lands.
Unfortunately, they won’t be delivered to our warehouse until sometime mid-December, so they will not be available for delivery by Christmas. Hence, when they go up they’ll be available only as a pre-order.
The figurines had originally been scheduled for a December 9th pre-order release, but will instead be postponed by a few days. Maybe a week. Everything else scheduled for release on December 9th will still be put up on the store later today! :D
(Purchasing note: if you pre-order any Beta Kids Vinyl Figurines together with other in-stock store items, we will hold your complete order until we’re able to ship the figurines. We won’t be able to split shipments, so please only place orders that include vinyl figurines if you’re willing to wait for everything in your order.)

I’ve added more to the list since first creating it. As always, if anyone has anything they would like to add, let me know!
And that’s how I got a concussion
IM LAUGHING SO HARD I THOUGHT IT WAS A GIANT BOTTLE FALLING OVER AND CRUSHING HIM OH MY GOD
I kept wondering why the bottle was getting bigger… Then it hit me.
(Just a Few) Games to Play in 2014
got this lovely bruise from jumping up in excitement and smacking my leg on the counter upon hearing naughty dog won studio of the year. Other than that the VGX kinda sucked.
Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
