Some of you might remember that the Gamecube was first called Project Dolphin, but did you know it was at one point an actual dolphin? Really! Just read this comic that isn’t in English.
Weekly Famitsu No. 551, 1999.
Johnny Mnemonic was actually an allegory for Nintendo’s creative process. Seriously. Look it up.
so many people who are attempting to be counter-culture and progressive and liberal don’t like fight club because they think it’s an oversexed white male dominance fantasy and that’s exactly right. that’s what fight club is cutting at and making fun of
that boxy chested…
I rarely reblog stuff, but this hit the nail on the head. I’ve read a good deal of Palahniuk, despite most of his recent stuff leaving me underwhelmed. The one thing I can say about his work is that he never makes his characters good people; sure, they might recognize what’s wrong with them and might work to change it, but they’re consistently flawed and usually deplorable. To rally behind Tyler Durden is to admit that you’re a scumbag that refuses to change and would rather hide behind a bullshit contrarian stance.
I’m sure I’m missing a decent character somewhere, but I haven’t read some of his stuff in almost a decade. I went straight to the protagonists of Choke and Survivor, who trolled sexaholics meetings for action and egged on suicidal people who called his hotline, respectively.

HAPPY NOW, SPACELEECH?
Every day at dawn, Harpo Miyazaki sets out for the mountains with his trusty burro to harvest anime. After being picked, the anime are sorted and left to dry in the sun. By mid-afternoon, Harpo begins roasting his signature blends— the mellow, deep flavor of mecha, the heady, aromatic gag show, the bitter shonens, and the crisp magical girl shows. All of these are made by hand before being delivered to your eyeballs.
Truly, this man is the backbone of Japanese animation.
Godzilla sketches. Messing with the idea of a logo for the panel I’m doing with Spaceleech at Otakon. You should come, if you’re a jerk that likes hearing other jerks talk about kaiju (which are also jerks, when you look at all the stuff they’ve done).
JESUS CHRIST, FOX KIDS. TELL CHILDREN THAT YOUR SHOWS ARE FUN TO WATCH, NOT THAT THEY’RE NECESSARY IF YOU WANT TO LIVE PAST 12!
Tags on tumblr are being abused! When you search SNK, instead of Metal Slug or Fatal Fury, you get a bunch of weird skinless men!
I went to that tag expecting Wind Jammers, but there were NONE TO BE HAD.
