I just want a comedy tv series starring Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen, telling the story of two best friends who have the best of times together and love each other unconditionally. 

So yeah. Basically I want a reality show following them. Don’t tell me you wouldn’t watch that.

"Keeping up with McStewart"

Just the idea of this made my heart go squeee.

Part the fourth of the Science Fiction History series. In which we dance our way from 1939 to 1974 in an ever-weirder selection of costumes whilst learning about how science fiction saved the world and squabbled with itself.

Books mentioned and further resources:

Astounding Science Fiction began life as Astounding Stories in 1930 but changed to Astounding Science Fiction in 1938 under John W. Campbell. It’s changed names a whole bunch of times since then but technically is still published to this day and is currently called Analog Science Fiction and Fact. http://ift.tt/1iWhx98

Deadline by Cleve Cartmill.

A Logic Named Joe by Murray Leinster.

The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester.

Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.

The next video in this series will be about cyberpunk, contemporary SF and the future. It’ll be the last in the series (though there will be a bloopers video) and should be up next Wednesday. If you’ve got any suggestions for books, authors or ridiculous costumes to be included then let me know in the comments or on twitter!

hi there, anon. i didn’t realize i took a lot of selfies. thanks for the info. so, your question was whether i think i’m pretty. you already answered that no, i am not. 

and i have to agree, anon. i don’t think i’m pretty bc i’m not.

i’m fat.

image

i always have a double chin.

image

i constantly look like i haven’t slept in a week bc of my dark circles

and, i always look sunburnt. idfk why

image

i have this white line across my nose that makeup can’t cover up 

image

i have tons of wrinkles on my forehead. like what the hell? i’m 25

also, it’s the size of fucking texas

image

i still don’t know how to smile in pictures bc i hate my fucking teeth

image

my feet are flat. my hips are huge. my boobs are weird. i am covered in stretch marks. my voice is grating. my ears stick out two miles from my head. i am always fucking sweating and i’ve been asked if i was pregnant more times than i can count. 

so, you’re right. i’m not pretty. i can’t stand the way i look.

which is why it’s so fucking important that i post “a lot” of selfies. bc, anon, you’d better fucking believe that if i look in the mirror that day and don’t cringe, i’m gonna take a fucking picture to save that tiny little second. and GOD FORBID i show the world that i posses a little self love every once in a fucking while. 

TO ANYONE READING THIS: DON’T EVER LET SOMEONE MAKE YOU FEEL ASHAMED FOR LIKING THE WAY YOU LOOK—EVEN IF IT’S JUST FOR A SECOND. IF YOU LOOK NICE, YOU TAKE THAT FUCKING SELFIE AND YOU SHOW IT TO THE GOD DAMN WORLD BC THEY DESERVE TO SEE THE GOD/GODDESS YOU ARE!

that beard finally coming in? go ahead, bro. take a selfie.

you finally got that piercing you’ve been wanting? not really my style, but you’re fucking rocking it. take a selfie.

your boobs look awesome in that shirt? take a selfie.

you finally lose or gain that weight you’ve been working on? take a selfie.

your eyeliner look awesome? your new sunglasses make you look like  a celebrity avoiding the paparazzi? you killing that tux? you feel a tiny, rare level of self love? you always on a high level of self love? you just like your face? 

TAKE A MOTHAFUCKING SELFIE!

thanks for the question, anon. this one’s for you.

i thinks shes beautiful in my opinion 

This girl is my hero.

This, motherfucking this.
