a kid from my high is fucking trending on facebook because of a stupid petition to get a senior photo of him holding a cat into the yearbook…

UPDATE!!

My principal decided to join him in a photo.

The new photograph will go in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and rescue animals like Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne.

Bangkok-based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich (previously featured here) continues to take breathtaking photos of Siamese fighting fish, also known as betta fish. His fascination with their splendid, flowing fins and brilliant coloring is apparent in the extraordinarily detailed portraits he creates. The photos are so perfectly clear and close-up that it’s easy to forget the fish are underwater and not floating in midair.

Angkatavanich recently told Popular Photography that he only started photographing the fish after encountering them for the first time three years ago at a fish show and has since become obsessed with the different species which vary greatly in size, shape, and color patterns.

Head over to Visarute Angkatavanich’s 500px gallery to view more of his gorgeous betta portraits. Limited edition prints of his photos are currently available through La Lanta Fine Art.

I see so much of Aang in Bumi, which is why his feelings of disconnect from his father break my heart.

"The joke behind Squirrel Girl, created by Will Murray and Steve Ditko, is that she’s an unlikely hero who looks sort of ridiculous in her furry mammal costume, yet somehow she proves unbeatable against every dangerous villain or crazed maniac she meets. One may wonder if the gimmick has the sticking power to support an ongoing series, but it’s worked pretty well for Batman for the last 75 years."

I need to read that series, is it out in trade?

Only in those little digests I think, and then only incompletely. It’s so underrated. 

No hype, I think Paul Tobin’s Adventures run is to Spider-Man as All-Star and Supreme are to Superman. (Though our tastes in Spidey might be really different - I really can’t go with a ‘Spider-Man died in 2008” narrative anyway ‘cos I like the stories since 2008 a lot more than anything I’ve seen from the twenty years prior to it).

Anyway, if fancy it, the issues you’re looking for are volume 1 from #53 through to #61 and then volume 2 up until…tricky. It sort of becomes Something Else before the end, so I’d say the last ‘real’ issue is #16. 

I’m not sure I’d go quite as far with that analogy, if only because Tobin’s Adventures is missing half the supporting cast and only almost succeeds in feeling complete despite them. But for whatever it’s worth I’m guessing my Spidey tastes are fairly strongly in opposition to yours (not so much “died in 2008” but “has been only intermittently present, and I’m not even talking about the whole Superior thing”), and I love Tobin’s run. So!

drakyndra replied to your post: Kill The Moon, spoiler-free edition

So how about that scene where three women debated the fate of humanity? I also appreciate that I can sympathise with both Clara and the Doctor: I feel it was right of him to let humanity decide, but he went about it the most dickish way possible.

Yeah, same here. Clara’s point about ‘training wheels’ made me think, what he essentially metaphorically did was remove the training wheels from her bike and then push her down a hill. Sure, it’s gonna teach her to ride, but what a dickish thing to do.

How exactly does she need to learn to ride, anyway? (Asking the Doctor, not you.) Like, was talking the Doctor out of using the Moment not enough? What about how she supported him through all his own moral dilemmas a few episodes ago?

I mean, the Doctor left Susan in a post-apocalyptic wasteland because he thought it was time she left the nest — from that angle you can see how he would think he was showing Clara respect by giving her the chance to make the big decision he usually makes. But the meta-decision was unilaterally his, and she was right to call him on how bullshit his reasoning was.
