Welcome to the tangent factory.

This is a place for all the things that pique my interest and stop me dead in my tracks for hours at a time - board games, comics, women, sci-fi/fantasy, puppies, science...
Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.
July 21st, 1951 - August 11th, 2014

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.

I really love how Stjepan Sejic draws Wonder Woman

This will forever be my headcanon for Diana: built like a brick shithouse and still heart-stoppingly gorgeous.

I -love- this art for her so very, very much. Stunning and a huge badass. This is Amazons. :3

Oh god. I go weak in the knees for Amazons.

photos from suzie szterhas' book, “eye on the wild,” of seven week old lion cubs in kenya’s masai mara reserve meeting their father for the first time.

in order to get these photos, suzie, who noticed a mother venturing alone into a den to give birth, waited patiently outside until the cubs emerged — and this after three months of slowly getting the mother and pride comfortable with her presence. 

notes suzie, “it’s a delicate thing gaining an animal’s trust, particularly when it’s an animal that has newborns.”  but she adds"if you spend enough time around these animals, if you wait through the slow periods (and lions sleep about twenty hours a day) …you get to witness stuff that’s very special and very rare."

and after seven weeks of waiting, suzie witnessed the mother bring her cubs out of the den to meet the pride and their father for the first time, and witnessed the father react by gently playing with them, even when bitten.

"Hey, let’s play with dad!"

"How do you play with dad?"

"Same way I play with you!"

"Bite him on the face?"

THE CUTE. I AM DED.
