The thirst for reblogs in my tags.
There was some talk about how making a Raffles anthology would be the coolest thing ever. How it would be published and other details have not been worked out, but right now we’re basically checking the interest in the fandom.
Would you be willing to contribute with a story or an illustration or just help out putting the thing together?
Please let us know if you’re interested, feel free to come with ideas and suggestions and help spread the word!
let’s do it
e.t.a.: can someone do something where because of some plot Raffles and Bunny are in Singapore. they take some selfies and have breakfast.
double e.t.a.: in case this isn’t clear: I’m volunteering!
Man I have a plotbunny now where Raffles and Bunny have Brunch in the Bar and Billards room at the Raffles Hotel and are involved in the whole shooting of the last tiger in Singapore thing.
AND IM TOO HUNGOVER TO WRITE IT RIGHT NOW
Alias Re-watch: Sydney and Vaughn talk about eloping on the way to Santa Barbara. They should really avoid Santa Barbara. WHEN WILL THEY LEARN?
Is this my favourite cliffhanger of all time? IS IT? (I was prepared to parenthatise this with no but honestly I think this might be the one that made me scream the loudest in my life. Remember that this is season FOUR and everything was about to go right for them and then…) I THINK IT MIGHT BE THEN.
Other good cliffhangers include all the rest of Alias’ cliffhangers, who am I kidding. No one did cliffhangers like Alias.
Alias cast on March 28, 2013 at the premiere after party for Bradley’s new movie, The Place Beyond the Pines.
I’m starting an Alias rewatch this week with my friend and so checked the tag to get myself in the mood and OH GOD LOOK AT THIS THOUGH! I sincerely love how much this cast loves each other even now.
(Lookin’ good Spydaddy.)
(Bradley Cooper what have you done to your face put the botox awayyyyy)
Might have finally found the reference pic for my other half sleeve to go with the Chaps.
1.02 The Same Old Story & 5.09 Black Blotter
They look so much like parents in the last pic. Like YOUNG LADY GET BACK HERE YOU CANT LEAVE OUR SUPER SECRET BATCAVE HIDING PLACE LOOKING LIKE THAT
Gaming News of the Day: Astronomers Study StarCraft Strategies
Earlier this week, Royal Observatory of Edinburgh research astronomers Dr. Thomas Targett and Dr. Duncan Forgan released an academic paper investigating which StarCraft II race has the most viable game strategies. The team observed 500 professional StarCraft II matches in order to gather their data, taking notes on when players made choices that would affect their long-term success or if they were playing to make the battle end swiftly. After running 100 simulations through the Monte Carlo method, they determined the members of the Terran Dominion had the best chance of permanently defeating the Zerg and Protoss races for control over the Milky Way. Disagree? Join in the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #StarcraftScience.
Hat tip to Wired.
So this is amazing but at the same time only 100 markov cycles? Were you doing this in a barn? I want to see 5000 to really test the sensitivity of that, especially because the Protoss are far better.
I like how by the last Sherlock Holmes stories ACD was like
SUPER POWERED MONKEY JUICE!
THROW THAT ROCK AT A JELLY FISH!
Yeah I mean by the end ACD was phoning it in so hard the telephone had to come to the masses.
Okay if I’m perfectly honest, a good percentage of the reason that I love Person of Interest is because Reese occasionally looks like this. Not only like this, but — okay actually, you need some context here: in the normal course of events, Reese dresses himself, and he looks very nice but kind of boring in a normal suit and shirt.
But not in this scene.
In this scene, everything he’s wearing - suit, shirt, tie, pocket square, possibly underclothes - were not only bought by his boss/partner/mysterious benefactor, but altered by said boss/partner/mysterious benefactor’s own hand to fit Reese perfectly, going so far as to kneel in front of Reese while measuring the suit so that “the cuff would shiver on the shoe, not break.” Reese is dressed from head to toe in someone else’s idea of what he should wear, and he looks edible. Like a rich banker type (which is ostensibly what the boss was going for)? Yeah, sure. But more obviously, he looks like sex on legs. And that’s what his boss wanted him to look like.
So like, sure, maybe this isn’t a picture of a sub who’s super happy about being completely and totally owned. Maybe it’s just a dude enjoying a relaxing drink at a bar. But all I know is when I first saw this scene I was like, “Is this actually happening?”
Tags: it actually happened guys, it actually happened, person of interest, is the story of, the nerd king of manhattan, and his, violent amoral unicorn of justice, being beautiful and repressed and broken, you are being watched motherfuckers.
