If you were wondering if the Lumberjanes #7 cover was a reference to something…yes it was!
Celestial Cities by David Fleck
FINAL CALL! Here is the Celestial Cities collection in full. Inspired by the solar system and Italo Calvino’s novel “Invisible Cities”, I’m hand printing limited editions using laser engraved wooden blocks.
There are just 4 hours left to support me through kickstarter- you can get some art and exclusive goodies, and you’ll be helping support the printing costs and future print collections. Please don’t miss out!
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
A selection of Backgrounds from the Steven Universe episode: Mirror Gem

Some backgrounds I designed for Mirror Gem! That shot of the fry shop is the first of many early key backgrounds we redid between the end of season 1A and the beginning of 1B, so look forward to more of those!
When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.
But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.
Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.
