I’m telling myself I don’t use those colors for the eye shadow. I don’t like lip gloss. Nail polish is fairly moot for me. I already have a favorite perfume.
BUT GOD HELP ME I NEED THAT COMPACT.
If they make a Beauty and the Beast collection, I’m gonna be broke -_-.
So that mystery of why we’ve been getting an influx of Ariel stuff at TRU lately has been solved. Damnit Sephora. But goddamn is that compact gorgeous.
I’ve been seeing a lot of people reacting to issue 20 of Red Hood and the Outlaws and talking about how great it is that Starfire’s memory loss was retconned and once again insulting Lobdell a lot. I feel like, even if the guy made mistakes, this is entirely unfair. Lobdell never specifically said that Koriand’r had complete memory loss, KORI stated it, which is different. In fact, in an interview almost 2 years ago he specifically stated the opposite. He said
but rest assured, Kori does possess the ability to remember events in her life. Having “a short attention span about all things human” and having the memory of a goldfish are two completely different things: like comparing apples and pipe wrenches.
Throughout his ENTIRE run he also hinted at what he said there. Just because he didn’t spell it out bluntly like issue 20 did, doesn’t mean it wasn’t there. You just had to actually be paying attention to see it. The panels up there show the major instances. In issue 4 she mentions Dick’s name as she’s freezing to death. Issue 6 she holds up Dick’s clothing and this is a memory she has. And then in issue 17 she’s asked by Jason to come inside, but knowing Dick’s there, she refuses. The panel shows her very clearly upset by the idea, implying that she definitely knows Dick and something certainly happened. Jason then comments on the fact that he doesn’t actually believe that Kori’s telling the complete truth when she talks about her memory loss.
So, no, Lobdell’s run never specifically had anyone give an entire speech to the audience explaining that her memory loss was actually just repression. However, it did leave those clues along the way and all but said it in issue 17. Personally, I really like that we weren’t given a page spread with someone explaining everything to the audience about it. Instead, we were just given clues that lead to the conclusion that something happened to her and she just chose to repress it.
Issue 20 didn’t retcon or reveal anything that hadn’t already been established. Even if you do hate Lobdell at least try to give him the credit he deserves for that. He did leave hints along the way that her memory loss wasn’t real (or as real) as she was letting on and then all but said that in issue 17 by showing rather than telling.
thank u jfc
I want to be surprised about this but I’m really not. Despite the number of times that this has been brought up, discussed, and mentioned on the tags that it should be common knowledge, there is one thing I have learned. Talking to someone intent on hating on Lobdell was akin to screaming into a tornado. They just wouldn’t hear you because it didn’t fit with what they wanted.
I like how Aidan and Dean are focused on the same thing at least and then there’s Adam Brown. Just all like “What’s that over there? O_O”

These two. Are just precious.
If it wasn’t obvious, we’ve temporarily got the internet back. Computer ended up wiped completely and my hard drive may be screwed, and some other things, but hey.
At least it’s still working right? Haha. Now I’m off to cheer myself up because I’m in a mood. Maybe cleaning the house and doing productive fun things will help. It usually does.
ok I’m done
It’s all sketchy but that’s okay Nori is also kind of sketchy
Reblogging for the art AND the pun.
I can’t stop laughing at this.
Welp. Trish made this comparison when she started watching the show…and now there’s this. So. I thought she would enjoy.
The City Museum in St. Louis is the first attraction I’ve been to that makes NYC feel dull.
It’s an art installation housed inside and outside a former shoe factory. The best way to describe is if MoMA and Williamsburg had a love child in an post-apocalytpic industrial city where all the lawyers have been killed off.
The City Museum, housed in 10-story brick building, shows none of the restraint or quiet typical of museums…It recycles St. Louis’ industrial past into such attractions as slides made from assembly-line rollers. Just about everything can be touched or climbed, including dozens of Mr. Cassilly’s sculptures, among them a walk-through whale on the first floor.
Despite the whiff of danger, or perhaps because of it, the City Museum is one of St. Louis’s most popular attractions. Its 700,000 annual attendance is roughly twice the population of St. Louis and dwarfs the turnout at refined destinations such as the St. Louis Art Museum.
Here’s what it looks like from the outside; yes that is a school bus hanging off of the roof and you can apparently go inside it (though it was closed for the winter):
Here are the crystalline caverns near the actual entrance of the building:
Here’s the coat-check ($1)
Your standard hipster cave art display:
Navigating the museum is like a Choose Your Own Adventure: You can take the boring walkway or crawl through the many Slinky-tunnels that snake throughout the building.
Don’t wear heels or your best leggings to the Museum:
Here’s an overhead view of some statues of the local wildlife:
What’s behind this door? A ten-story slide? Don’t mind if I do!
Here’s what the slide looks like from near the bottom. At the Bowery New Museum, everyone made a big deal when an artist installed a puny 3-story slide, even though you had to wait 2 hours to get on it. Getting to the top of the City Museum’s 10-story-slide (no elevators or escalators) weeds out the weak so there was no line. Plus, it’s ten F*CKING STORIES.
Even though there are clearly places during the journey to the slide that someone could easily topple off and die, the City Museum has several bars that serve alcohol (including PBR, of course):
For you Modern Art lovers:
Williamsburg, eat your heart out:
So this is already a pretty cool place, especially for a $12 entrance fee. But we haven’t even been outside yet. Hope you aren’t afraid of heights/claustrophobic:
We’ll be making our way up to that plane there:
Slinky tunnel time!
It’s better not to think whether or not these tunnels have been load-tested to prevent a group of heavy people bringing down the entire installation:
My friend wouldn’t follow me up here so I took a picture of this random guy:
The fastest way to get down is, of course, by slide:
The evening concluded with some time in the ball pit, beaning teenagers and living out my past dodgeball glory days. Where else in America can you pummel strangers in the face without someone pulling out a knife/gun? A teenage boy even found a cell phone under all the balls and tried to find the owner.
Honestly, the best place in America. My friend described it as a “playground for adults,” but there were plenty of children running around. And though you’d think they’d be really bratty (there was no way for adults to really supervise them), it’s amazing how polite everyone of all ages was – and they serve alcohol there! Even more amazing:, I did not smell a single whiff of marijuana, even though you’d assume that’d be a popular choice of drug there (that, or LSD).
Too bad nothing like this could ever exist in a lawsuit-happy place like NYC. But if you’re ever near St. Louis, the City Museum is itself worth the drive/flight.
Read the entertaining story from the WSJ: this place is so hardcore that it’s possible to sneak into one of the exhibit areas and lose two fingers.
Fandom. Will be all up in this business. Next Saturday (the 8th). Come one. Come All. Join the Congress.
