don’t mistreat people who are sincerely kind

don’t use them for their generosity

and for fuck’s sake don’t take them for granted expecting them to always be there because they’re nice

good-natured people can be worn down so much that even they can become jaded

treat these people right

Imogen Heap helps invent gloves that will “change the way we make music”

Read More

I don’t think anyone could possibly imagine what having these would mean to me

theres too much you could do with this i wouldnt know what to do oh god

this is so fucking COOL

The Mi.Mu Glove is on Kickstarter, the campaign ends May 3.

@3:03:
It’s really exciting to see what people might do with hacking them. So, the software is gonna be open-source, and so is the hardware.

Considering how much data the gloves are able to process (right down to specific gestural input), and the fact that the gloves are wireless, this could go far beyond music. Mix these gloves with the Oculus Rift, and they might just become the solution for controller-free VR Input.

I really, really hope the campaign is funded.

This looks really amazing!

As an artist I feel I should share this on my main blog. 
(I know I’m not a musical artist, but I can still appreciate this kind of technology. Imagine what you could do if this tech was re-configured for the visual art world?)

Very interesting stuff I hope it gets funded!

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.

FUCK THIS SHIT.

Look, I can understand circumstances where, yeah, reporting it is difficult and you would choose not to.  There are times when you literally HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE and it sucks, and those assholes are taking advantage of it.  Not every woman can put her source of income at risk like that, and the one thing the article gets right is that the laws DON’T always work, you are NOT guaranteed protection.

Which is why we need to keep fighting for better laws and better enforcement of policies.  Which is why when you CAN report it, you SHOULD and FIGHT against this mindset that it’s just something women have to deal with if we want to sit at the boys table.  Harassment is NOT just an inconvenience, it is dehumanizing, it is upsetting, it is a weapon used against women and it is BEYOND NOT OKAY. 

And of course: why the fuck are you acting like women should have to control whether they report it or not instead of the very basic fact that MEN SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS?!?!

FUUUUUUUUUCK EVERYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING.

You said all the things I meant to say but didn’t while blinded with rage and flailing at the keyboard. :)

What the holy FUCK?

Bad books on writing tell you to ‘WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW’, a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.

Joe Haldeman (via maxkirin)

I have said this a million times. “Write what you know” is bullshit.

LEARN THINGS TO KNOW THAT ARE WORTH WRITING ABOUT.

Can we make a petition for Oded Fehr to be cast as Doctor Strange? Is it possible because it needs to be done.

FUCKING HELL YES. 

give this to me now.

Josh and I have been saying this for months.

I accept this and wish for it to be so. It will probably be a pasty white dude tho.

In many ways it is like he was born to play this part. 

How did I never see that before? This must happen!

Oh, please, please,
please let me have Oded Fehr in a Marvel movie to admire. I would watch the hell out of that movie for no other reason, he was my first movie crush.

New Twitter Trend: #OdedFehrForStrange. Let’s make it happen.

Yes.  All the yes.  PLEASE.

Bless this idea.

I didn’t know my username had an actual name in it. How nice.

Also I don’t know this guy but this picture set looks pretty fuckin right.Too bad that means it probably won’t happen in a million years.
