Hey, kids, d’you know what tomorrow is?

It’s September 19th again!

Let’s sing it one more time for 2014’s Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Not that I'm stalking you (>.>) but I happened across St. John of the Cross' poem The Dark Night of the Soul, and if you didn't mean to reflect it in Blasphemy, you should just claim to have anyhow. Man. (The Loreena McKennitt adaptation is lovely, too).

Hee hee!  You wouldn’t be my first stalker, even if you were a stalker - WHICH OF COURSE YOU’RE NOT! ;D

OMG!  Honestly, I love Loreena McKennitt’s ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ but I’d never understood the lyrics well enough or consistently enough to know what it was exactly about.  I just went and read it and, again, OMG!  You’re so right!   The Dark Night of the Soul is uncannily like Blasphemy

Thank you for pointing this out!  ^5

sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Okay, so the post is gaining notes and people are confused, so to explain what the hell is going on:

Swedish elections held were on last Sunday, 14th September. We’ve had a right-leaning government the past eight years and after this there will be a change of power. The new party, Socialdemocrats (S) gained a total of 31% percent. The old party, Moderaterna (M) gained 21%. 

Sverigedemokraterna (SD) gained a total of 12.9%. Their policy is racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigration, anti-refugee, anti-diversity, anti-LGBT+, and anti-feminist. Basically, they tick every box on the douchebag lottery.

If you’re here to argue that they’re ~not actually~ Nazis: 1) Fuck you. 2) Fuck the horse the you rode in on. 3) I hope you get stepped on by a moose, you ignorant asswipe. 

  1.  they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
  2. party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
  3. worn Nazi symbols 
  4. supported and helped build Neo-Nazi group SvP.

There’s probably more, but I don’t have links on hand. 

They’ve been having rallies and demonstrations all over Sweden, and people have shown up just to turn their back on them and protest (this post explains it better). 

In the 2010 elections, SD were pretty much considered no better than neo-Nazis and only got 5.7% votes - it put them in 6th place and was just enough to get them into parliament. In the elections before that, they got about 2.9%. In the past four years, they’ve grown exponentially in Sweden.

They’ve also run extremely extensive PR campaigns, appealing to the youth, kicking out members “exposed” of being racist, (note: these members often end up in SvP) and picking up buzzwords from the Socialdemocrats’ ideology. 

29% of votes they gained this year were from swing voters who previously voted M,  and the biggest gain have been in the south, in small towns and the countryside:

This is not something that’s just going on in Sweden. Europe has seen an influx of extreme-right parties over the last decade or so, often thinly disguised as a party that puts ‘traditional values’ and ‘national interest’ first.

In Greece and Hungary they’ve already been in power. In Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Finland France and UK, extreme-right-wing parties have been voted into the EU. 

Because here’s the thing: we’ve forgotten what it looks like. We’ve gotten to the point where we’ve turned Nazism into a cartoonish lampoon of goose-stepping, uniforms and moral lessons that “we’ll never be like them~”, ignoring the fact nationalism is not as cut-and-dry two ends of an extreme but exists on a scale.

People have been apologising for SD’s actions for a while now because they’re not considered “extremist enough” to be neo-Nazis, because they don’t share the same beliefs, because they’ve “publicly denounced” SvP. 

But the same people still get hurt. Still SD has the institutional and systematic power and privilege to oppress, degrade and humiliate people of colour, which they already have done. Stop making excuses for them. Stop making leeways for right-wing-extremists because that is how they gain tract. 

Please spread this.

It was nice to see my friend Hope Nicholson over the weekend at the Montreal Comic-Con.

Last year, she co-ran a Kickstarter campaign to bring back Canada’s first superheroine, Nelvana of the Northern Lights, back to print.For those that missed the Kickstarer, IDW Publishing will be releasing the book in November. Amazon link: (CAN / US / UK)

Her latest Kickstarter will return another Canadian WWII hero back to print. This is the Vancouver published sci-fi pulp comic hero Brok Windsor,created by Winnipeg artist Jon Stables.

In a nutshell:

Brok Windsor was your average medical doctor who was canoeing in Lake of the Woods when he came across a strange mist that transports him to a hidden island of giants. He discovers that he himself is becoming a giant and unless he finds an antidote, his rapid growth will kill him! He sets off on an adventure to find a cure with his new friend Targon, the leader of a technologically futuristic Blackpaw tribe on the island. With the power of rayguns and brave Canadian fortitude, they conquer the monsters and demons of the island, winning their way to the mysterious Starra, the beautiful grand-daughter of the mysterious Ghost Woman…

$30 will get you a hardcover collection and a digital copy and there are a lot of great perks and stretch goal rewards if you’re inclined to be generous.

If you’re looking for some little-known comics history and/or want to see a little diversity in your superhero collection, you should check these out.

Is Sherlock Watson good enough for you?

couldntpossiblycomment:

I just realized that in this godforsaken scene:

When Sherlock says “I think it could work”

He’s saying I think the name Sherlock Watson could work”

And then John, still laughing, realizes what he just heard and does a sort of puzzled look back up at Sherlock:

And Sherlock just:

And in conclusion, we’re not exactly looking at an aborted declaration of love.

Let’s see who’s over 18

Gimme a break.  Seen it a gajillion years ago.  I’m a bit over 2.8 times over 18!  And I wasn’t all that impressed, too much reusing animation sequences.
