Let’s be honest here, I would make such a shitty companion.
No dude that would be AWESOME. Finally we have a companion that isn’t so gung ho, and is better and well written than anything Moffat can draft.
Seriously, best line ever would be “IM TIRED CANT WE JUST BE CYBERMEN.”
IM GOING TO WRITE FANFICS OF THIS COMPANION.
YOU BETTER POST THIS SHIT
I want a Twelfth Doctor that is fully concious of the fact that he is being written by Moffat.
And it pisses him off.
"Oh, a woman. Let me guess, you fancy me? Am I sexy? Do you want to grind against me and call me a clever boy? You come near me and I will delete you from time. How? Who the fuck knows? It won’t be explained. You won’t be explained. You’ll just be gone. Gone to a sexy dimension.’
I want a female companion who is fully conscious of the fact that she is being written by Moffat.
"Oh, I suppose this is the part where I swoon now. Where I fall in love with you regardless of my previously-indicated preference towards women, or any other love interest I may have, because you’re so sexy and mysterious and distinguished and all of my character traits are just props in a male fantasy about manic pixie dream girls. I suppose this is the part where I get put into peril and scream and you have to save me, and then something horrifying and unexplained happens to me that makes me interesting and special, because an ordinary, boring shopgirl could never, ever be worth you taking on a wild adventure."
he’s literally facing certain death in the face and he still takes the time to call out shitty language Stacker Pentecost is my hero
#now if only he had the ability to transcend fiction and call out his writers for naming g*psy danger sigh (tags from professor-solus)
this line baffles me (“whore” is better than “bitch”? I don’t understand) but also that Pentecost is the kind of guy that would snap at Tendo for using the word “bitch” (which does fit what we are presented with in the film, mind!) but that he’d have ever allowed a jaeger to be named a racial slur, period. I’d imagine there’d have to be some kind of approval process for that??
REMINDER THAT LAIKA’S FIRST FILM SOLELY PRODUCED BY THEIR STUDIO HAD TWO FEMALE CHARACTERS AS THEIR ANTAGONIST AND PROTAGONIST WHO, BY SOME FORM OF DEVIL MAGIC, HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FACES
REMINDER THAT LAIKA’S SECOND FILM NOT ONLY CONSISTED OF A CAST WITH FOUR CENTRAL FEMALE CHARACTERS BUT INCLUDED AN ENTIRE TOWN OF DIVERSE CITIZENS OF VARYING RACE, GENDER, AND AGE. LIKE A NORMAL TOWN HAS.
REMINDER THAT LAIKA’S THIRD FILM FEATURED SAME SEX COUPLES IN THEIR TEASER TRAILER
REMINDER THAT THIS IS ALL STOP-MOTION SO EVERY CHARACTER WAS DESIGNED, MODELED, SCULPTED, RIGGED, AND EVEN HAD TINY CLOTHES SEWED FOR THEM.
also reminder that they make chump change compared to disney who whines and cries that in all their years of experience they can’t handle the prospect of animating a girl with a face different than the rest and that it’s “too hard” because only females can express such a wide range of emotions that it makes them difficult to animate
if a studio with 20-30 years of experience can manage this then SURELY an established studio with NEAR 100 YEARS of experience can maybe, just maybe, include a female that ISN’T a part of their formula
side-note but ALL THIS is a good reason why I will forever love and support Laika
Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:
[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE.
So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.
SOMEONE DRAW HER PLEASE
CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW AN ANCIENT CRAFTSMAN WAS PRESENTED WITH PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HELP TO NORMALIZE THEIR DISABILITY. AND THEN SAID ‘NAH FUCK THIS WE’RE GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK BADASS.’

“Before we enter a product category, we make sure we have a product manager internally who’s an expert in that area,” says Kumar. “What we also do is try to make sure that we’re about 50% below what a retailer would be selling that product for.” A 10% discount, he says, isn’t enough to convince people to take a risk on an unfamiliar brand.
After cables, the company moved to other categories plagued by retail price gouging: TV wall mounts, basic audio equipment, camera accessories — all manufactured under contract and sold under the Monoprice name.
“If it’s something that would help generate a value to an end customer,” he says, “we would consider it.”
Excerpts from (x).
In the world of digital art, most of us are familiar with Wacom and their insane prices. Then Monoprice entered the scene with a tablet of their own, and after word spread, the tablet sold out many times and quickly became the go-to tablet for the artist on a budget.
And maybe you have (or maybe you haven’t) drooled over a shiny Cintiq. Companies like Yiynova and Bosto have entered the scene with tablet monitors of their own. And yet Wacom still stands at the pinnacle of this mountain. Brand loyalty or quality? Those who have purchased tablet monitors from competing companies have been very satisfied. But you will still have those who say, “If you want to be a professional, buy a Wacom.”
But why? We’ve heard the same argument with Apple vs. PC. In the end, if you’re happy with the product and it gets the job done, isn’t the professionalism within you and not a brand?
Monoprice must have seen our frustration. I mean, look at this thing, it’s even half the price of Yiynova and Bosto’s tablet monitors of similar specs.
Though it hasn’t been released and no reviews can be found, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this one. Monoprice has proven itself to be a solid company with excellent products. I’m hoping this will be what us budget artists have been waiting for.
Go Huion though. They’re priced similarly to Monoprice, but have better specs somehow.
Huion’s also sold through a reseller called Tursion Turcom or something like that.
Ahaha, mood ring lab coat. I think that’s been done before.
I was going for something else for this, but I got side tracked somehow because I don’t know how to plan out these things.
this carlos and cecil is the most perf cecilos ever.

Look what I found at Target, guys! (Still no Chrystalis set, though)
Doctor Hooves becoming an actual pony name is so freaking hilarious. Man, it makes me laugh so hard!
I can’t decide if I love or hate the actual “WARGH PAINT ALL OVER” set here. But the good Doctor’s paintjob does remind me a little bit of the Fourth Doctor’s scarf, which is a good thing.
the abbreviation of “Doctor” just makes me think he’s the town farrier
which I suppose in MLP terms means he runs the nail shop?
