My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;
Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!But I, with mournful tread,Walk the deck my captain lies,Fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;

Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
But I, with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

As for a movie with a non-white lead; if Marvel makes Thor 3 before it makes Black Panther, it will have made ten movies headlined by blond white men named Chris before it makes one movie headlined by someone who isn’t even white. (They can cast a black actor named Chris. That’s totally OK.)

Marvel Studios and diversity, everyone. (From here.)

i was literally just lying in bed thinking “oh my god, i am so inexplicably sad right now, it feels like ive been hollowed out and am going to be sick” and then i sat up like “wait. thats hunger. i have yet to eat dinner”

When I talk to students & beginning artists about internet popularity (aka a career in the arts, which is kinda the same thing), I often mention this group — one of the largest / most popular groups on last.fm.

People with no social lives that listen to more music than is healthy who are slightly scared of spiders and can never seem to find a pen

The things that blow up, online in places like Tumblr but also in the global marketplace at large, are often like this. It’s like a horoscope. Unusual enough to catch your attention, generic enough to be applicable to almost everyone who encounters it, but personal enough to make you go “oh my god, that’s me! I’ve found my people!”
The methods of internet consumption, which social media have amplified further, mean that we don’t simply buy/read/listen anymore — we publicly consume, we endorse, we literally re-present the content with our own name behind it, wearing it like a mask. I present this thought to you as though it were my own, because I love it so much; it speaks for me.
All of that is to say: don’t be afraid to tap into your weird idiosyncratic self in your work. Whatever you’re into, there are thousands out there who feel the same way, and will be so grateful to find you. Their passion is necessary for building the critical mass of support to get to the next level. And if you keep digging, you find the universal in the specific, and then you’re really cooking with gas.

Ladies, if you think your man is cheating. Take him to that bitches front door and see if his wifi connects.

Well this is the weirdest thing I’ve seen all day:

A reminder that there was, twenty years before Peter Parker, a crime-fighting Spider-Hero who made chemical web shooters and was sometimes misunderstood by the cops. And she was a woman.

it’s true! The Spider Queen appeared in the final three issues of the 1941-42 series The Eagle, with 8-page stories credited to “Elsa Lisau” (which people seem to think is a pseudonym).

In 1993, Marvel revisited their “Invaders” concept (which had in the 70s taken 1940s characters and retconned them into the past of the Marvel Universe), with writer Roy Thomas and artists Dave Hoover & Brian Garvey, and brought in additional public-domain golden-age characters, including the Spider Queen:

Comics, everybody!
