Such a whiner. :)
The Brain Scoop: Where My Ladies At?
This was an incredibly difficult video for me to write and record. I haven’t been this uncomfortable or nervous about an episode since we decided to launch the Wolf series. I did it because I know my fellow female creators are with me: these comments are not easy to ignore, and they do have a negative impact on our desire to make videos and blaze trails.
Things can be said about women being more sensitive than men, or that men deal with these comments too, or that we should just accept that they’re going to happen.. but if I do, I’ll quit. If I accept that this is just part of the deal, this is what it is and always has been, it’s a requirement of my job to toughen up and barrel through, I won’t be able to continue. The remarks are enough to make me want to throw my hands up and retreat to a tiny cabin in the middle of nowhere. If the compromise is that I need to become desensitized, I would probably just do something else instead.
Let’s not create that kind of environment for our peers. Let’s be supportive, encouraging. Focus on the content, not the presenter. Ignoring the fact that these comments are uncomfortable is dismissive and counter-productive: let’s have less tolerance for both those comments, and the apathetic attitude attached to how they affect our community.
And, please: check out the women in the video description for more fantastic channels to subscribe to.
As someone who’s kind of accidentally in a technical job, I find Emily immensely encouraging. I can’t imagine putting myself in a position to be so publicly deconstructed and demeaned. I can only hope that our appreciation of this remarkable woman and her work can counteract the trolls. Four for you, Emily Graslie!
I’m just going to leave this here…
I shouldn’t love that stupid robot dog so much.

God I love this film.
^^ The exact moment I fell helplessly in love with Alan Tudyk’s acting skills.
But 11 is over 1200 years old :U

For a little while, I was expecting John Cusack to walk in.
(I mean, it’s pretty much required that every movie he’s in has at least one scene where he’s walking and/or sitting dejectedly in the rain.)

I’ve been watching Doctor Who all my life, but I didn’t notice all of these while watching (and rewatching) The Day of the Doctor. It makes my fannish heart happy to know that the people working on the show today — even down to the set designers and prop department — care so much about its long, rich legacy.
I just love them! haha
Excellent trolling. Well done. :)
Also, the Zodiac used to be a group of Villains which original leader was Scorpio, Nick Fury’s brother, in the 60’s Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics. ;)
