I went to Twice Sold Tales while on vacation and got two photos of their shop cars that ended up being a little subpar due to my Impatient Hands

dream journal 

The style I guess was kind of like Dave McKean, but it also included film work (or maybe it was stage work or VR?) and musical numbers— basically some Mirrormask shit. It also sort of reminded me of the work of Rosto A.D. (rostoad.com) or “The Tale Of How” (vimeo.com/1516019), and maybe also more than a little of Crispin Glover’s art and music output. It’s going to drive me up the WALL trying to remember what his big overarching story was ABOUT, though

AAAGGHHH there was this REALLY COOL multi-discipline artist and musician called “Go!Go!Go!” or something like that, who was obsessed with building all his sets and costumes for his work from unlikely discarded materials, like mattress foam, tinfoil and old billboard ads. I was really into his whole output and work ethos and now I’m FRUSTRATED because he DOESN’T EXIST as far as I know

going on "vacation" tomorrow, by which i mean my partner and i have rented separate rooms in a boutique hotel in a different part of town and plan to spend most of the weekend quietly reading, taking baths and making art with zero monetization plans. if you want to reach me between tomorrow and monday, hit me on Discord or Telegram, or email me like a civilized person

@irisjaycomics "But I really want to BE a Potterverse wizard!"

Okay cool not gonna knock that, the heart wants what the heart wants, but have you considered one of the many Potter-based MU*s out there, or how Second Life has enormous amounts of Potter-adjacent stuff you can use that doesn't feed back to Rowling's pockets, or any of the countless other ways you can realize that specific dream?

"but i'm a harry potter super fan and i REALLY REALLY want to play it so i can hoover up every last piece of pertinent lore!!!" good news: i'm told that harry potter also has seventeen billion gigs of fanfiction/comics/art/music you can consume and stitch your own canon together from. the expanded universe is there, and a significant amount of it is better-made and more diverse than anything a rich cis bigot will ever think up

is it because you like wizards??? because good news, i have it on good authority that there are at least a few other video games about wizards out there

the wizard school video game discourse on twitter totally perplexes me on a fundamental level, mostly because i, someone who considers herself a reasonably avid video game enthusiast, do not feel obligated to buy every single video game that comes out to "support the devs". there are hundreds and hundreds of games that come out each year that i don't buy. it's astonishing just how many games exist that i have not bought. why is this one so hard to not buy, especially considering JKR is a terf

i read mint's blog post and i feel like an important lesson for us white people on here to learn is that going into a PoC's mentions to pedantically argue with them is really rude and you are probably going to end up being racist

for a bunch of white uwu soft conflict-averse smol anxious nerds y'all love to start shit all the time

chainsaw man 

chainsaw man chapter 85: “Chainsaw Man erased the concept of nuclear weapons from existence by eating the demonic incarnation of mankind’s fear for them. I want to either control him to take over the planet, or get shredded and devoured by him to unleash sheer anarchy upon humanity. And there’s nothing you can do to stop me.”

chainsaw man chapter 86: “nnnooOOOO TOO CLUMSY WITH HAMBUBGER”

BACK AT IT AGAIN IN HADES (spoilers) 

I’ve got no idea what to do for Achilles and Patroclus to cure them of mopey gay syndrome, but as long as Zag keeps throwing himself into the thresher, we’ll get there eventually

BACK AT IT AGAIN IN HADES (spoilers) 

Skelly’s seems straightforward enough. Dusa’s will take a bit, but I’m already earning a LOT more gems than I used to thanks to Darker Thirst and grinding for prophecies. But learning the lyre for Orpheus... I don’t even know where to begin there

BACK AT IT AGAIN IN HADES 

I don’t know if I’ve come across a lot of The New Content? Most of it feels pretty seamlessly integrated into the game, and while I’ve beaten the game (once) I don’t really consider myself even close to an endgame player. I AM starting to actually unlock the little “friendship missions” for some of the characters, though, which is delightful
