"I originally met Tommy in San Fransisco in an acting class, of all places and I watched him perform a Shakespearean sonnet. And I think everyone in the class was horrified." - Greg Sestero
The best part about this clip is when you read the context of it in The Disaster Artist. (BTW you should totally read it, it’s absolutely fantastic.)
See, Tommy Wiseau wanted a SAG card and found out he needed to be in something first, like a commercial or what have you. So he made this commercial for his business and cast himself in it, therefore buying himself a SAG card.
ALSO he saw Greg Sestero’s work in Retro Puppet Master and was so inspired by his performance that he was imitating it in this commercial.
So Tommy Wiseau made a Shakespearean Puppet Master ripoff commercial for his shady clothing business all in an attempt to get a SAG card before he just made his own movie anyway.
I feel so old. I just used to play war games with decapitations and bizarre elaborate torture.
(Yes, it’s a shock that my originals are still in such good condition.)
I guess I can post bigger spoilers now

Some people like to read while on the toilet. Others prefer to be inundated by multiple confusing and contradictory reflections of themselves, repeating into infinity.

My ratties are out of the house for the next few weeks while life settles down and I’m moved into a new place (yes, I have moved once a year for the past 5 years and I don’t recommend it). So for now, here’s a rough walking cycle of a fairly aloof rat.
Femme dandy Marceline is, unquestionably— THE HOTTEST MARCELINE.
The lead story on the BBC News Magazine today is all about "The great 1980s Dungeons & Dragons panic". It’s a nice little summary of a situation which I wish we could all scoff at and say would never happen again with anything. Fat fucking chance.
"In 1982, high school student Irving Lee Pulling died after shooting himself in the chest. Despite an article in the Washington Post at the time commenting "how [Pulling] had trouble ‘fitting in’", mother Patricia Pulling believed her son’s suicide was caused by him playing D&D.
Again, it was clear that more complex psychological factors were at play. Victoria Rockecharlie, a classmate of Irving Pulling, commented that “he had a lot of problems anyway that weren’t associated with the game”.
At first, Patricia Pulling attempted to sue her son’s high school principal, claiming the curse placed upon her son’s character during a game run by the principal was real. She also sued TSR Inc, the publishers of D&D. Despite the court dismissing these cases, Pulling continued her campaign by forming Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons (BADD) in 1983.”
Whilst I knew about the general situation, I’d never investigated BADD before. So I did a bit of rooting around, and found this: a scan of one of BADD’s propaganda booklets, with commentary. PRIMARY SOURCES ARE THE BEST SOURCES.
If you’re even vaguely interested in the subject, I highly recommend you give this a read. It’s ludicrously fascinating… and a reminder of just how much effort people will put into crusades that are so fundamentally warped.

I wanted to ink this but I was afraid I would have a panic attack trying to imitate Miura’s beautiful lines.
We have a con coming up in Australia, and one of my friends couldn’t get a cosplay done in time. But he put this together.
He made a “cosplay superhero” called Captain Patch-It (sometimes lovingly refered to as “the Fairy Cosmother”), and his costume consists of anything and everything you can think of in case someone has an accident or malfunction with their cosplay. He’s an awesome guy.
I thought everyone would like to see his idea
All I can think of is the Shield patrolling conventions and bringing justice to damaged cosplays.
