Today in Solidarity: Protesters gather in Oakland against the Urban Shield conference and police militarization

Ever wonder where cities get all their fancy ideas on how to militarize their police force? It’s not just from the Pentagon— it’s conferences like Urban Shield, that highlight the latest in tactical equipment and practices for suppressing the very people you’re sworn to serve. #staywoke #whodoyouprotect #whodoyouserve 

This is what the Oakland protest was for yesterday.

We don’t need companies like this.  We don’t need our cops trained in military tactics.  Police tactics are supposed to be about communities, not war.  The motto is “to protect and serve,” not “shoot on sight.”

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

Where No One Has Gone Before - Sam Dillard

"Original composition of Star Trek themes from Voyager, Deep Space Nine, TNG, and TOS I have arranged as a grand orchestral suite. There will likely be an alternate version of this in the future as part of a collaborative project with some talented soloists!"

Harley is a gift from God.

This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!

Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;





The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.

Waiting for this addition

ANYWAY I don’t want to start dating, or actively meeting people for the purpose of finding love. I just realized I’m not doing anything about it because it sounds like a pain in the ass. I don’t want to try very hard for negligible results and resulting hurt feelings. A waste of energy, really. And a downer
