"Something my father taught me. It’s meant to harden your knuckles so you don’t break them if you get into a fight. It also has the added benefit of knocking on wood. My father believed that success is a mixture of preparation and luck. Tapping the table kills both birds with one stone."

Mothafreakin’ Disney’s Gargoyles, Season 2, Episode 4, “A Lighthouse In The Sea of Time.”

I know, right?

(via theirishcowgirl)

Not just “Disney”. A person came up with those words. Let’s not lose the talent, the gifted guy, in the shadow of the corporation, shall we?

The writer’s name is Greg Weisman.

Also DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS EPISODE IS ABOUT?  It’s called “A Lighthouse in the Sea of Time” and it is about a blind man teaching a gargoyle to read.  Hudson, the oldest of the gargoyle clan, is embarrassed about his illiteracy (hey, the guy grew up in 10th century Scotland), but coincidentally he meets and befriends a blind man (whose name escapes me at the mo - Jeffrey something) who of course cannot see that he is not human.  Jeffrey teaches Hudson to read, at one point uttering the line above.  Jeffrey is voiced by Paul Winfield is and is just one of DOZENS AND DOZENS of POC good guys and heroes in this show.

OH AND BY THE WAY THIS IS NOT A ONE-OFF, MANY EPISODES LATER THE FACT THAT HUDSON CAN READ IS ACTUALLY IMPORTANT TO THE PLOT.

I AM WORKING ON AN ENTIRE POST ABOUT HOW YOU SHOULD ALL WATCHING MOTHERFUCKING GARGOYLES.

Volvo 145

I want it

I just caught myself singing Sexyback to a picture of a Volvo….

I’m bringing sexy back
Them other cars don’t know how to act
I think you’re special, what’s behind your back?
So turn around and I’ll put up a roof rack

Some days I can’t believe I have a boyfriend either.

psych-facts:

Hugs that last over twenty seconds, release a chemical in your body called “Oxytocin”, which makes you trust the person you’re hugging more. 

“We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth” - Virginia Satir, family therapist

Hugging someone is a way of showing that we care, and for both the hugged and hugger, it feels good. When growing up, we are very sensitive to touch. We recognize our parents initially through sense of touch. 

Oxytocin is a neurotransmitter that acts like a hormone and helps promote trust. It’s released in the body when we feel safe. This could be through breast-feeding (when we’re little), holding hands, snuggling, dancing with someone, during a massage or body work out or things that generally make us feel at ease. Hugging is definitely one of the things that make us release oxytocin. 

I knew I was right to despise hugs. Insta-trust? No, thanks. Still love you though, whitneyhoustonwehaveaproblem.

Michael Bround of Atoll Comics is starting to do a series of infographics breaking down the structure of Phonogram: The Singles Club. This is the first, and apparently the simplest. Lots more analysis over at the site, but I wanted to show the infographic, because it’s a bit fuuuuccck!

Spoilers a plenty if you actually read the thing above in detail, obviously, but even a scan sort of shows what we were doing with it. Keeping all this in my head was fun.

Must. Read. Phonogram.

LOOK AT THESE ADORABLE PENGUINS IN SWEATERS. Doesn’t that one second from left have some style?

(h/t to The Book Maven for the link, and for a new reason to make Random Penguin jokes)

THAT ONE.  THAT ONE SECOND FROM THE LEFT.  THAT IS THE PENGUIN BOOKS LOGO.

IT’S A PENGUIN DRESSED AS A PENGUIN BOOK.

IMMA DIE

See? These. Would the penguin sweaters we keep reading about end up on plushes? If so, I’m making myself some dragon mittens. Posting things to Australia costs money, yo.

Knitters wanted for penguin pullovers
The Penguin Foundation has a global call out for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.

If you enjoy knitting as a pass time please please please do this. please.
You can download a PDF with more info here

signal boost this year again :D


Ok, somebody, anybody, help me with this. My boyfriend made the adorable face and sympathetic noises he emits when presented with cute animals. This lead me to cast on immediately. And then made me ask what kind of microscopic penguin am I knitting for?? A 4 CENTIMETER hole for the flippers?? The whole thing measures 20 cms? Also, it calls for DK, sport, or worsted yarn. I know my gauge is almost always off, but that’s because I’m a tight knitter. No way does this add up, right? Am I insane?And then there’s the article that says the sweaters get put on toys and sold. So…. http://www.oregonlive.com/knitting/index.ssf/2014/03/penguin_sweaters_yes_theyre_re.html

ETA: How are they even getting the flippers through the holes? Is that not painful in some way? I just don’t get it, guys.

I taught myself to knit about 4 months ago. I’d never knitted before but having a million chest infections in a row means you need to find something to keep you occupied while you’re stuck in bed feeling miserable. 

Knitted Bowie is my first wee project and I plan on making more little characters. He’s naked for now…I’m in the middle of making a miniature jumpsuit that would make Kansai Yamamoto proud. 

I’m hoping my next lot will be a bit more defined and tidy but he’s pretty cool, despite the dodgy neck and strange arm/leg thickness.
