if you don’t think some of the hate Taylor Swift receives is unnecessary and sexist let me just remind you that she once wore a black turtle neck, jeans and boots and this was a result

Mayflys are a winged insect that have a short lifespan. They mate in such a way that all of them mature in the exact same time. The will die out soon, but for the time being Wisconsin looks like something straight out of a horror movie.

That’s not just a cosplay Cat Woman, that’s a hero. On Saturday July 26 at Comic-Con Alicia Marie was cosplaying as Tigra with her geek+model friends. A creep publicly reached into her bikini bottom and de-pantsed her. He would have gotten away unscathed if not for ANTM winner Adrianne Curry. Dressed as Cat Woman, Adrianne chased down and clocked him with the butt of her bull whip. Hopefully some folks got photos of his bloody face, this guy deserves some JAIL TIME.

"Right now, I am just thankful and happy I have friends that don’t even have to put a costume on to be superheroes.   AM”

Alicia’s much longer original Facebook post here. More thoughts on cosplay and harassment here from the Comics Beat’s Heidi Macdonald. Adrianne Curry can’t be everywhere, con organizers and attendees all need to do more. We need to do more.

After a lot of rain here in FL these baby frogs appeared. They eerily all faced the same direction.

Am I the only one thinking the beginning of Summer Knight?

No. Now that you’ve said it. No you’re not.

A person’s tumblr tells a lot about them. It shows what kind of images they see in their head, who they love, who they hate, even what they think about other people.

Hi Maya, I am writing to ask you what you know about the differences between Western and Eastern Russian culture. I would like to know if there are main differences in superstitions and religious practices? I am working on a comic based in Western Russia, and eventually I want to feature a character in the story who is an upir/black shaman from Buryatia. I want to know what sort of issues I should bear in mind, when he comes into the Western half of Russia (with an amur tiger!)

PUBLISHING THIS SO ANYONE CAN JUMP IN AND OFFER MORE ACCURATE INFORMATION. I KNOW MY SIBERIBROS ARE OUT THERE AND I AM 16 YEARS REMOVED FROM THE MOTHERLAND SO ALL OF THIS IS FROM WHAT LITTLE MY FAMILY HAS TOLD ME AND HOURS SPENT ON WIKIPEDIA AND VARIOUS SMALL ONLINE RESOURCES. I AM NOT AN EXPERT. I REPEAT I AM NOT AN EXPERT. Also you’ll note some ~<{[=***contentious personal opinions***]}>~ but I’m having a pretty furious week so please allow me to indulge:

The Buryats ( = boor-yatt) are a separate tribe to my own, the Yakut ( = yah-koott) and much further south. I’m assuming they’re a lot more similar to the native Mongol populations just south of them. I’d recommend doing some reading on Tengriism for general mythology, but keep in mind that modern Tengriisim is a weird revived version of the original pagan oral tradition, which varied from tribe to tribe and religious diversity was something that was encouraged by Temujin (Genghis Khan).

As for black shamans, my Yakut ancestors were white shamans, so I know more of what the white half was up to, and even then it was pretty vague since it’s been kept rather hush hush for the last 400 years since the Christian missionaries came and converted everyone under threat of destruction. Black shamans and white shamans have pretty much the same skillset, they only differ in what they do with those skills. Black shamans hurt while white shamans heal. They can both commune with nature, talk to spirits/gods, have a mastery of herbalism and know all the best psychedelic plants and their preparation by heart. They can also shapeshift apparently so you may not need a tiger companion at all (also why would you do that, tigers are so hard to draw, SO MANY STRIPES OF GOD AND THEY HAVE TO BE CONSISTENT NOOOOOO). Oh and white shamans live with a community and are highly revered while black live in isolation and are shunned (because if you go see the black shaman it means you want to order a curse or something similarly anti-social in a small close knit village so DOOONT DOOO THAAAAT unless you want everyone giving you the side eye). They’re pretty much just classic fairy tale witches with hexes and curses and poisons and the like.

As for social differences… that depends on the time frame for this story? But in general the the two thirds of Russia east of the Ural mountains are:

A) Considered part of Asia
B) Given it’s own distinct region name: Siberia

From the above statements you can extrapolate that the Western, predominantly SLAVIC culture of Russia is quite distinct (although still fairly similar, after some 400 years of Russian rule) from the considerably more TURKIC and NORTHERN NOMAD tribes of Siberia. First of all there are still some nomadic tribes wandering around who herd caribou and ride either Siberian horses (Somewhat considered a subset of the Przewalski’s horse, they look like The Hobbit horses) or the caribou themselves (speaking of, fffffuuuuuck youuuuu fRozennn, Northern nomads are the same everywhere and Sven is NOT what an 1800’s northerner would have looked like, no matter what your focus groups freakin responded to, I am super tired of everyone being SHOCKED that the north and Siberia are filled with people who look “Asian” or “Inuit” like YO WE’VE BEEN HERE FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS WHAT THE FUCK GET ON OUR LEVEL PLANET EARTH). Second the religion is much more muddled and specific to each individual place/tribe/person/practitioner. Third there is a greater connection to nature simply due to the weather’s monumental role in every day life. People still hunt, and technology/tools can vary wildly from tribe to tribe.

For example my people were considered more “civilized” and possessing of secret magic because they put down roots on top of a load of precious metals, gems and high quality iron ore, and were able to hold our ground at this sweet spot by the river with our superior weapons. So basically a groups surroundings will dictate the society that takes form.

Also I’ve never heard of Upir in Russia ….they’re just called vampires in Russian. Literally. We say it “Vam-peer”. I’d never in my life heard the term Upir until I watched Hemlock Grove. Pretty sure McGreevy just plucked a name from European folklore to make it authentic/exotic to Americans.

Some info about Siberian shamanism from my Siberibro with a lot of family history involved in this sort of thing.
