Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I loved Marvel comics when I was a kid; I was a weird kid who didn’t get down with macho stuff, in part because of the general scene in my house & in part because I was scrawny and couldn’t really front like I was tough. In my tiny limited-to-my-personal-friends-and-surroundings comics scene, the idea that macho norm-enforcer types could be into comics would have come as a huge and deeply disappointing surprise; comics, in my mind, were for people who’d already begun to sense that, in the immortal words of Anti-Flag, “their system doesn’t work for you.”
I hope Marvel systematically “ruins” absolutely every one of their legacy characters forever, one after another, and then D.C. runs a Sgt. Rock miniseries where he renounces violence as a means of conflict resolution. May the grousing of the macho comics dudes ascend to Heaven forever and make an acceptable sacrifice unto Galactus

Sad, sad news. Panna Rittikrai, director of “Ong Bak” and “Ong Bak 2” as well as Tony Jaa’s mentor and the fight choreographer for aforementioned films and "The Protector," died yesterday at the age of 53.

Rittikrai didn’t just help reinvent Thai cinema; he reinvented action cinema in general. His choreography, as we as his stunt team single-handedly changed martial arts action in a time when the genre was on a pretty grm decline.
As well as directing and acting, he starred in a number of films too. Most notably, he was the chief bad guy in 2010’s “Bangkok Knockout.”

It’s so sad that a true icon has died at such a young age. I can’t help but feel like he had so much more to give. He was just so innovative and a landmark action director as for as stunts go.
Rittikrai died due to complications involving liver and kidney failure. Doctors also discovered that he had a brain tumor.

Rest in peace to a true modern legend and incredible talent.

Ammonite Fossil Skull by Skullis

The dark past of the Ammonites is revealed in these authentic fossils, carved with the deathly visage that always loomed over them through two mass extinctions before finally marking the fossil record with their own demise. Skullis specializes in amazingly detailed skull carvings out of myriad objects from crystals and gemstones to seashells and the ancient denizen of the deep shown here, which sold for a cool $2,190 USD. Well worth it though to have your own demonsquid.

do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend
