No cat too big, no box too small: irrefutable proof that felines of all sizes are bewitched by the cardboard chaircave.
Oh, god. I love how they all look exactly as helpless, dumb, and clumsy as my housecat. BEHOLD THE MAJESTIC FELIS.
I’ll be at the Phoenix ComicCon this weekend, in booth #2425 with the lovely Leanna Renee Hieber or on the following panels:
You know you wanna grab a Bludbunny Brigade bracelet and have something or other signed, right?
Holy Land USA
Holy Land USA was once an 18 acre Bible-themed park located in Waterbury, Connecticut. The park had about 40,000 visitors a year until it closed in 1984 for renovations. Holy Land USA never opened back up again due to the death of owner John Greco in 1986. It has been abandoned ever since. The abandoned acres of the theme park have been watched over by groups of nuns for decades, but the place keeps getting more and more creepy as the park continues to deteriorate.
On top of the vandalism and eeriness the park gives off, a teenager was murdered on these abandoned grounds in 2010. Since then police records have shown that the amount of trespassers have been decreasing which just means abandoned Holy Land USA is as creepy and deserted as ever.
Who has dibs? I would totally call dibs, but I already have a book on creepy abandoned amusement parks.
It’s already got a bitchin’ name, too. Just sayin’.
Time to bring this back: Disney animator Millicent Patrick’s work as sole designer of the Creature From the Black Lagoon was downplayed by a male coworker who then received credit for it for half a century.
Millicent Patrick - The Creatures mother.
And people say I’M dressed up when I wear a skirt and heels at my drawing table…Yay all around!

And another role model for Gothiccharmschool is found.
And yes, fanboy-news-network, I now count her as a role model. She’s wonderful!
Millicent Patrick is flawless.

I could reblog/post this every day as a constant reminder.
The Russian-born novelist’s writing habits were famously peculiar. Beginning in 1950, he composed first drafts in pencil on ruled index cards, which he stored in long file boxes. Since, Nabokov claimed, he pictured an entire novel in complete form before he began writing it, this method allowed him to compose passages out of sequence, in whatever order he pleased; by shuffling the cards around, he could quickly rearrange paragraphs, chapters, and whole swaths of the book. (His file box also served as portable desk; he started the first draft of Lolita on a road trip across America, working nights in the backseat of his parked car — the only place in the country, he said, with no noise and no drafts.) Only after months of this labor did he finally relinquish the cards to his wife, Vera, for a typed draft, which would then undergo several more rounds of revisions.
Smart. I love the idea of little strongboxes of indexed story.
Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldnt even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldnt fuckin do that
who are you
pretty sure this whole series has been about the wrong wizard guys
Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
You could not possibly understand how happy this makes me.
I have hope for the wizarding world again.
Oh wow this is the best observation!
I had always heard that was a cameo by Ian Brown, singer of the Stone Roses and a friend of the director, Alfonso Cuaron. So he’s an actual rock star, not just a rock star wizard.
