skins series six episode 10

the finale was a giant sob fest. it really is hard to see such a great series go! i really loved the montage at the end though. this song kinda made the montage perfect.


new avengers commercial

 so vintage. so in love.

 the phoenix is everywhere.

maybe the phoenix will burn off all of ms. marvel's hair?

yo green arrow

the only thing i can beg the cw to do is to not make the new green arrow show anything like smallville. make it dark. add some characters from the comic book. throw in some social issues. emphasize the lack of superpowers. don't make it lame and make sure speedy is somehow included in the show. i will accept the mia or roy version of speedy.

read a little about the new arrow pilot on hero complex.

my favorite band of the 90s might be back.
flashback time: 

social media talk

“It’s critical for brands to always be leaders, to always take risks and experiment. There’s this notion that a lot of brands have of not wanting to be first on a particular street or in a particular media space. That has to change, because the brands that are not being leaders in social media are being left behind very quickly. I also think that [social media] is a unique space, and you have got to make sure the people who are most connected, the ones who access it every day, are empowered to be leaders in this environment. Often they are the youngest members of a team.”

Craig Leavitt, CEO of Kate Spade

thanks, mashable for a whole buncha thoughts on social media. 


hey captain marvel hey

 well carol danvers look a bit different. i am not sure if it is for the better.

student loan forgiveness act of 2012

signon.org has a GREAT petition on forgiving student loan debt as a result of a bill introduced to the house by michigan rep. hansen clarke.

a little more info:

Student loan debt has an undeniable and significant suppressive effect on economic growth. The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012 directly addresses this enormous boot on the neck of the middle class and represents a glimmer of hope for millions of Americans who, with each passing day, find that the American Dream is more and more out of reach.

Therefore, we, the undersigned, respectfully request that Congress bring H.R. 4170, The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, up for consideration and commit to holding a straight, up-or-down vote on it this year. Thereafter, we, the undersigned, respectfully request that President Obama sign this legislation into law.

you can sign it on signon.org and it takes two seconds! do it!

there is a nice little FAQ sheet on the bill on forgivestudentloandebt.com.

batman has wings. different.

this is artsy and terry mcginnis is perfect.

this cover just has some issues. so gross. his mouth kinda looks like a bat symbol though.

poor jay garrick. what did the new 52 do to you?

the indigo tribe is CRAY.

cryptic and perfect. it reminds me of hercules.


x-treme x-men returns

does the x-men franchise really need one more book?
the original x-treme x-men wasn't that great.
i did really like the art though.


popular and gcb love

i definitely first fell in love with leslie bibb in popular.
best show ever.
so junior high.



i finally caught up with skins season six today. pretty much every storyline is perfect. mini and franky have grown so much since last season. i'm hoping alex sticks around for series 7.

sadly, skins was cancelled today.

the final run, which channel 4 promises will be "a celebration of this truly iconic series", will feature famous skins characters from the past five years. 

i hope they wrap up all the open story lines especially cassie and sid.


my newest obsession

seriously amazing. i hope gcb doesn't get cancelled.
