Being good to each other is so important, guys.
Wow. I didn’t know folks were collecting these. I’ve wanted to write posts about what’s happening down here and I can’t. Even if I can focus long enough past the stress and trauma then something new and horrible happens and I’m running off to document it. Twitter has been the only way I can get some of this out.
Since Its comic con week. here’s Wonder woman riding a 2 headed black rainbow pega unicorn while holding a 2 head lightsaber. the horse shoot out lighting from their unicorn too
I think it’s time this made the rounds again.
A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.
But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.

I want you all to go read this comic, because it’s amazing, and if you haven’t heard of Boulet, now is your chance to make it right. He’s the greatest, this comic is the best.

ok but then who was in the sauna
Ask the majority of the universities and the school curriculums why kids are graduating unable to fathom producing this kind of level of 2D animation for television. Ask the teachers. I believe It starts there. :-)
Knowing the quality of teaching animation at Seneca College in Toronto, I agree with LeSean’s comment.
Wow. I saw the animation and thought “what series is this??” so I used GIS to find out and it guessed Wizard Barristers. “What’s Wizard Barristers?” I wondered, so I started to read the wiki:
"Plot: In 2018, humans and wizards live together in Tokyo—"
I know it’s not 1800s week, but this gentleman is currently on display at the Newport Antiques Show in Newport, RI and I didn’t want to forget about him or his fabulous eyebrows by the time 1800s week happened.
United States, 1850-1857 [x]
Thomas Howland was a resident of Providence, Rhode Island who worked as a stevedore and became the first black elected official in the city when he was elected warden of Providence’s Third Ward. He was denied a passport on the basis that he was a person of “African extraction” and thus “not deemed [a citizen] of the United States” - again, this man was an elected official, in addition to being a citizen with voting rights. In 1857, he and his wife and daughter left Providence for Liberia where his wife became a teacher and Howland worked as a sugar manufacturer.
That is really cool! I’m going to post this (even though it’s actually an American painting), since this painting’s going to be on display this weekend at the Newport Antiques Show, in case anyone wants to go see it in person!
I’m sorry but… Isn’t this another case of an immortal celebrity?
If this had been anyone except The Rock I could have resisted reblogging but….
Can we just please put him in every single silly action film loosely based on historical mythology pls?
P.S. here’s a vase from 5th Century B.C.E. Greece depicting Heracles slaying Busiris:
The People’s Champion! :O
The new Batgirl design has been often credited to Cameron Stewart OR Babs Tarr but rarely to the both of them. The design process was in fact a collaboration with both artists contributing to the final design.
Cameron: When DC first approached me about taking over Batgirl as…
Dahomey’s Warrior Women
Speaking of West Africa, the Dahomey Warrior Women involves a fascinating history that spans nearly 200 years. It was during this time that the elite squad of female warriors fought and died for the border rights and inter-tribal issues in the ancient kingdom of Dahomey.
These women, who outranked their male counterparts, were given far more privileges, including the ability to come and go from the palaces as they pleased (unlike the men). They were so revered for their warrior prowess, The Smithsonian explains, that men were taught to keep their distance:
“Recruiting women into the Dahomean army was not especially difficult, despite the requirement to climb thorn hedges and risk life and limb in battle. Most West African women lived lives of forced drudgery. Gezo’s female troops lived in his compound and were kept well supplied with tobacco, alcohol and slaves – as many as 50 to each warrior, according to the noted traveler Sir Richard Burton, who visited Dahomey in the 1860s. And “when amazons walked out of the palace,” notes Alpern, “they were preceded by a slave girl carrying a bell. The sound told every male to get out of their path, retire a certain distance, and look the other way.” To even touch these women meant death.”
Yet as colonialist ambitions grew in the region, the Dahomey female warriors eventually grew sparse. Fierce combat missions to crush the independent kingdom eventually succeeded, and in the 1940s, it is said that the last of the female warriors died.
I’ve posted about this incredible military force for 1800s Week previously, and you can read more about women warriors of color in this Masterpost. There’s also Amazons of Black Sparta: The Women Warriors of Dahomey by Stanley B. Alpern.
