I am looking directly at those who create and post webcomics on tumblr.
Deep into your eyes.
A great comic can lose its chance at being popular if it is presented poorly. When creating your comics, always assume that no one will click to enlarge your images. You must present your comic so it is…
Good job, internet!

‘Starman’ by David Bowie
The only thing better than album Bowie is live Bowie.
So there is a story behind this is picture:As I entered the booth to get my picture, introductions, and Wil Wheaten says to Felicia Day. “So he’s dressed as the 10th Doctor Who which you’d know if you watched the damn show” to which she retorts, “Ah whatever they all dress the fucking same.” Wil glares, I laugh, she conveniently poses. Snap. Felicia then says “Ha did you see that, I set him up for that one.” Those two were the most down to earth people I’ve met here. So awesome.
1.5 million more Americans would have jobs if not for Washington’s decision to pursue deficit reduction in the midst of a sluggish economy.
Unfortunately, news of successful deficit reduction is unlikely to result in any respite from new cuts or tax increases. The Obama administration still has its Social Security cuts on the table — as part of a potential “grand bargain” — and Congressional Republicans are gearing up to demand still more spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling.
A lot of people have pointed out to me that, if you watch the entire JJ Abrams interview with Jon Stewart, he goes on to talk about how much he came to love Star Trek as an adult, and that the viewer is left with the impression that he truly gets what Star Trek is about.
I didn’t watch the whole interview, but just saw the gifset that I reblogged. I stand by what I said: the whole point of Star Trek is that it’s about more than aliens and robots and cool space battles. Star Trek is unique in science fiction — certainly science fiction on television in the 1960s — in that it was always about something more than phasers and transporters and Captain Kirk using his fists and his wits to defeat hostile aliens before he nailed the green alien lady of the week.
When I worked on JJ’s first Trek movie, I got the impression that he genuinely loved Star Trek, and really got what it was all about. I should have watched the entire interview before I pulled out my Jump To Conclusions mat, and I regret that I didn’t. I hope anyone who was upset at me or drew the same erroneous conclusion I did understands that I care deeply about Star Trek, and sometimes my heart gets ahead of my brain where it’s concerned.
‘Cannon dial for latitude 49° North. Cannon dials (or ‘time guns’ as they were occasionally known) were popular in the 18th century. A burning glass mounted above the plate would receive the sun’s rays at noon, so providing the heat to light the fuse at the end of the miniature cannon, causing it to fire and thus provide a signal for midday. Engraved on the dial-plate is the maker’s signature, Victor Chevalier Ingr. Breveté quai l’horlage 77 à Paris.’ (via National Maritime Museum)
