Ramblings of a Young Man

Just me and my thoughts as I go through this thing called life
Me trying to do the whole grad school thing feels an awful lot like Green Arrow trying to join the Justice League

Anonymous asked: You don't think God wrote the Bible?

God divinely inspired the Biblical authors to write their books/letters which were then combined in order to form the Bible. But God himself did not sit down and write the Bible.

For instance the Apostle John wrote the books: John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Revelations. Mark wrote Mark. Luke wrote Luke and Acts. Paul wrote over half the New Testament. God used human authors to write, preserve, and put the Bible together. But God didn’t write it. Nobody actually thinks God wrote the Bible. Like Russel said, God doesn’t have a pen.

Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale. 
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top. 
There were some insane  awesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.

This whole exterior action sequence between Korra and Zaheer is co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos’ storyboarding/fight choreography masterpiece, especially the 20-plus-second continuous flying shot. It was a herculean undertaking, and he had some help cleaning up a few of the scenes by Owen Sullivan (on this one) and Shaun O’Neil. If you didn’t already know it, Joaquim is a force of nature when it comes to action animation!

Russell Brand telling Westboro Baptist what’s up.

I will reblog this until my fingers bleed.

you don’t understand how much i love russel brand

I love Russel Brand. Now before my conservative followers jump down my throat let me explain. For one thing he’s a hilarious actor and personality. Politically/socially I think he does a great job at pointing out the problems America and the rest of the world for that matter are going through. He also does it with a sense of humility. I don’t always agree with his solutions to these problems but I appreciate him calling attention to them and at least trying to find solutions.

When the WBC came to his show Russel was surprisingly polite and welcoming. He gave them a chance to explain themselves (even if they are crazy) and he debated them calmly. He even thanked them for coming acknowledging that it must have taken bravery. That is more then I could have done. Russel Brand is just a really cool, really nice, really smart guy. He deserves more credit then he gets.

“Sure, when we see [Kate] again she’s really at her apotheosis as a nascent Hawkeye. She is never more Clint Barton than on the first and the last page of our next issue. She has kind of accomplished what she’s set out to achieve although not in the way she sought to achieve it, and there’s quite a price to pay. The issue reflects that, too — it’s the most chronologically fragmented and — well, it’s the most ‘Hawkeye’ issue of ‘Hawkeye’ she’s gotten to star in. Kate’s summer vacation is wrapping up. More will be revealed when our last three issues are out, but yes, this story has been about Kate leaving the nest, growing up and learning how to take care of herself. It’s her figuring out for the first time if she’s good enough for this job she wants so very badly…

The first issue out the gate, which is maybe three to four weeks away, will be the last Kate in California issue. Then our last two issues are the resolution of the story about the battle of the building. The first one is called ‘Rio Bravo’ and the last one is called ‘El Dorado.’ It’s the final showdown with the gangsters and this grease painted psychopath that has been picking apart at Team Hawkeye like a sick child tearing the wings off of a fly. Also, #22, our last issue, is going to be 30 pages. We’ll have an extra big finish.

“It’s insane. I printed post cards and buttons myself and gave them out all summer the year the book came out; like, I was the marketing department for ‘Hawkeye’ when it launched. It wasn’t supposed to last past issue #6. So to say that the book changed my life is neither hyperbole nor exaggeration. It’s been remarkable.

The readers who have come to us at every show we do are amazing. The cosplay, the makers and artists that reach out to us, it’s incredible and gratifying and if I said thank you every day for the rest of my life it wouldn’t be enough. It’s because of them that we were able to do an issue where a dog solved a crime and one that had American Sign Language as its primary language. So it’s been great and it’s better to get off the stage before it all starts sucking.”

—Matt Fraction on the end of Hawkeye.

I love that the final 2 issues are named after my 2 favorite John Wayne movies. I love that Kate has a final spotlight left and will be around for the grand finale. I love (and respect) that Fraction is ending this series before it gets stale.

But I will miss it. I will miss this comic so much.

I saw this movie 3 years ago in theaters and it still jacks me up every time I watch it.
