Where are they now: Portal Fandom edition, what happened to the fanfic ‘The Punishment’
So I went and dyed my hair for the first time and it was EXPENSIVE AS HELL AND I’M VERY DISAPPOINTED. I wanted to be a redhead but the stylist kept trying to steer me toward muted brownish-red colors and when I said they didn’t really look “red” she kept saying that they’d appear “lighter” than they did in the samples. I took “lighter” to mean “more colorful” since my hair is naturally dark brown and I consider brown “dark”, thus “lighter” to me means “further from brown” in the context of gauging how “red/orange” a dye is going to color my hair, as opposed to literally a lighter shade of the same slightly orangish-brown color the stylist steered me toward, which is apparently what she meant. So I ended up with this VERY muted orange which is further muted by my natural color giving it awful gray-based brown lowlights, which probably wouldn’t have happened if my hair had been bleached beforehand, but the stylist told me bleach is only necessary for dyed hair, no matter how dark my natural color was. So I got this horrible shade that looks awful with my skin-tone and really only looks orange at all at the top where the light hits it and still appears some impossible-to-explain brown on the sides in most lighting. I wanted the kind of hair that lights up a room all on its own and I ended up with hair that needs a constant spotlight for the color to even be visible AND ITS NOT EVEN A GOOD COLOR.
taking a break from testing ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

WHERE ARE WE GOING TODAY?
WHERE SHALL WE EXPLORE? :D
I WANT ONE
Hey so, AK just struck down a gay marriage ban and couples are now able to apply for marriage licenses but Sean Parnell, who is up for reelection for Governor against Independent Bill Walker and Democrat Byron Mallott (running for Lt. Governor on a combined ticket with Bill) wants to appeal the ruling because he apparently thinks it’s more important to stick it to the feds by asserting the state’s right to deny its citizens their rights than to do what’s actually right by the citizens of Alaska, and that appeals process to reinstate an unconstitutional-and-homophobic-as-fuck ban is going to be paid for with TAXPAYER MONEY.
Can the tumblrites please spread the word, “Vote for Bill, tell Sean we want him gone.”
Also, pls keep Mark Begich in office. Dan Sullivan needs to stay the fuck away from the senate. He’s an anti-choice and anti-birth control douchebag who thinks your boss has more of a right to make decisions about your health than you do.
PS; We’re also voting on legalizing marijuana and raising the minimum wage.
Made a new spreadsheet to track how much food I eat/how much I spend on food/how much I weigh to see if it might influence me to cut down on the deserts and shit.
WTF fansubbers who worked on the Phoenix Wright movie. Why didn’t you sub the credits? Was that Matt Engarde?
Aang’s all grown up
I really enjoyed this.
Our portrayals of adult Aang up to this point had always been so serious. We though this was a perfect opportunity to show that deep down he was still the same fun-loving trickster. P.S. Ryu drew both of these, something like 9 years apart!

The perspective on that sword though… WTF.
I’m sad. Thinking with Time Machine had so much potential, but it ended way too quickly. The resolution was really anti-climactic and the concept wasn’t fully explored in the slightest. Using two sets of portals only came up in ONE test, and that test had an infographic explaining exactly how to do it! I thought this would basically end up being co-op except by yourself, but it was more like co-op-preliminary-training-before-you-enter-the-hub by yourself. No relying on your past self to set up bridges or funnels or fling you or anything! Don’t get me wrong, the tests that were there were quality and the custom cut-scenes were also quality, but they also felt like a lot of build up to nothing. I feel like I played a demo or a beta version of what was supposed to be full-game length campaign like Portal TFV.
Holy fucking shit! Why did no one ever tell me about Thinking with Time Machine?
This is the coolest shit ever! You can actually download it as if it were a regular steam game rather than getting it through the PeTI workshop or downloading a bunch of files and installing it in System 32. It has its own story with some neat surprises and a brand new time-travel mechanic with good clear instructions. I haven’t played very far into it and I’m already in love. On top of that, there appears to be a Community Maps option just like with regular Portal 2, so it seams the creators have a way for people to make their own maps using the time travel mechanic. Praises be for whomever rejuvenated my love for this game! It was getting so difficult to find decently challenging maps that weren’t hard purely because I was either missing an obvious panel in a spot I hadn’t looked or was required to perform a ridiculously difficult feat.
