Here’s further proof that anyone can (and should) cosplay their hearts out. Seattle-based photographer David “DTJAAAAM” Ngo took this awesome portrait during the recent 2014 Emerald City Comicon:

"Olive Oyl and Popeye prove that it’s okay to cosplay at any age."

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.

A frequent complaint I seem to have with TV, especially within the last 5 years or so, is this industry standard that killing off characters is a way to keep a story fresh and exciting. this feels especially true in supernatural/fantasy esque stories. Like these writers want to keep us on their toes, and they aren’t creative enough to do it in any other way other than teasing a potential death, building it up, and (9/10 times) eliminating a mostly minor character who is well liked and under developed. The show can collect its shock and awe points and generate some internet buzz and keep people talking into the next season.

Writers for these shows are like broke addicts huffing paint thinner for a quick fix. Its lazy and unprofessional. More that that, its predictable. It eliminates effort to create truly stimulating art. It eliminates  the responsibility that writers have to pump out a finale/pre finale/episode that will shock you by it’s own merits. It’s part of a culture of television that bores and frustrates it’s most passionate viewers, who groan upon hearing the announcement that there will be “two shocking deaths” by the end of the season. “Of course there are”, we think. There always is. Who is the most expendable. Which character did you decide to shortchange for the sake of shock this time? How many episodes will it take for that character’s name to leave the lips of the surviving cast forever; for that character to be erased and cemented as a plot device in an unnecessary attempt by writers to deliver a promise of unpredictability and brutality to it’s fans. 

But heres the thing. True Detective wrapped up it’s first season a few months ago without a single major/supporting character death. Despite it’s wild west feel, almost every major character in Deadwood survived it’s finale. The most shocking, skin crawling scenes in Breaking bad weren’t the moments of a characters death, but the scenes of quiet, tension between two characters that were still alive. Doctor Who is one of the longest running scifi/fantasy shows of all time and the large portion of it’s successful run was spent preaching and practicing mercy. 

and i’m not saying that character deaths are inherently useless; or even that killing off multiple characters is inherently problematic. Some series manage to pull this off without a hitch; the difference being that the deaths in question all work fluidly within the world the death occurred. When people talk about Breaking Bad, nobody complains that ____ shouldn’t have died. You don’t hear ASOIAF/Game of Thrones fans say that ____ was unfairly killed off.

There is a level of acceptance in these deaths because they were all centered around pragmatism and story telling, not thrills. It doesn’t feel as if somebody tossed names into a hat and conjured up a cheap exit for the unlucky winner(s). Writers aren’t beating their chests and teasing spoilers about these deaths to drum up viewership or trick fans into thinking that the stakes are higher than they actually are; and that killing characters is akin to great/moving writing.

This new trend where developing characters and plucked from the their stories by ambivalent writers who have either dug themselves into a hole or can’t conjure up enough organic tension really does nothing but frustrate fans and make us believe a little less in the shows that we have attached ourselves to. im pretty sick of it.

“Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.[….] The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.”

Reactionary Republican and sexist luddite Phyllis Shafly who believes women need to be paid less so they can find husbands.

She’s crazy, right?
