In the animes, whenever a girl hugs a guy, it always has this brief shot of her boobs mushing up against his chest.

I don’t get why this is so remarkable. Yes, anime boys, you feel the boobies when you hug a girl. It is not that big of a deal.

“When I was auditioning for Joffrey. I only had one audition, and the producers and writers were laughing at my performance because I was being so snotty and arrogant. They found it comical. I thought that was good.” —Jack Gleeson

“Jack is gorgeous – a wonderfully sensitive, quiet, intelligent scholar. He’s the antithesis of that character.” —Michelle Fairley

"Jack, who plays Joffrey is such a lovely fellow." --Ian McElhinney

“He’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well.  It’s very disturbing.” —Natalie Dormer

"Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey is an absolute sweetheart in real life, you know what I mean. He’s such a brilliant actor. I think he’s a genius." —Mark Addy

“He’s the most polite, lovely, intelligent person in the whole cast! He’s just so humble and everyone loves him. There’s nothing anyone can say bad about Jack. He literally just turns it on. As soon as they go, “Action!” he goes from lovely Jack to the most sadistic, horrible creep on television.” —Sophie Turner

“Jack Gleeson is really a very nice young man, charming and friendly.” —George R.R. Martin

"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! I should be his bodyguard." —Sophie Turner

"Jack is actually a very sweet boy and very bright, very intelligent young man with a natural talent." —Charles Dance

"Jack! He’s the coolest. He smokes a pipe, people. Talk about great acting for somebody who’s so different from the part he plays. I love that guy." —Peter Dinklage

Film Crit Hulk responds to Vulture’s trainwreck of an article, ‘Why Captain America Is Only Interesting If He’s a Prick’.

Ugh, that article.

For the record, I love Millar’s Ultimate Steve Rogers. He is a brilliant critique of Silver- and Bronze-Age Captain America, and reading him was really important to me because I had been so frustrated with all of the 616 Captain America I had read up to that point: how his egotism and self-righteousness went unacknowledged, how he disrespected other characters’ authority because he knew best, and most of all, how the reader was just supposed to accept that because he’s Captain America. And yes, what makes him not only interesting but important and revelatory is that he is a prick.

But that article is so wrongheaded about Ult Cap that I want to puke on it.

1) Ultimate Steve Rogers being a prick is interesting not because he’s sexist and racist and homophobic and beats the shit out of Hank Pym but because he is a CRITIQUE of the Captain America that came before him, one that acknowledges 616 Cap’s flaws, and because he shows what can happen when you give a man a lot of power and make him a symbol of righteousness who can do no wrong without checking that he is actually an all-around great dude. Like, how lucky did MCU Erskine get that MCU Steve happens to be the most perfect sweetheart in the world? I know he was searching for the right candidate but they still got SUPER LUCKY.

2) Critiques are time-locked. Millar’s Ultimate Cap was relevant at the time and I continue to read him and enjoy him with that context in mind. But you know what Captain America we’ve had in the 12 years since The Ultimates was published? Ultimate Captain America. Plus a generally less idolatrous representation of Cap in main continuity, plus a bunch of Gritty Comics That Question The Man, plus an overall increase in paranoia and distrust of the government in America. It is not a statement on anything anymore for a superheroic symbol of good to be corrupt, nor is it cool and edgy.

3) “He clashes with the more progressive characters, but also is the only one with the moral conviction to take down a team member who beats his wife.” YOU MISSED THE POINT YOU MISSED THE POINT YOU MISSED THE POINT YOU MISSED THE POINT WOW CAP IS NOT THE “GOOD GUY” IN THAT SCENE IT WAS AGAIN A CRITIQUE OF SUPERHERO VIGILANTISM AND THE IDEA THAT A PERSON WITH A COSTUME AND SUPERPOWERS FIGHTING CRIME IS NECESSARILY A GOOD THING yeah we all hate Ultimate Hank Pym but Cap was so not in the right and I thought tonally that was pretty clear.


5) “In 2014, of what artistic good is a flawlessly nice soldier?” In 2014, of what artistic good is an asshole white male action hero? Do you know how many movies starring an asshole white male action hero came out last year? Probably like a thousand. I don’t know because I don’t watch those because I am bored of them. You know what we don’t usually get in 2014? A genuinely good protagonist who wants to protect people because he’s been in a position of weakness, who has suffered tremendous loss and been angry and grieved but makes the best of his situation, who fights not for his country but because he hates seeing people step over each other. That is fucking revolutionary in 2014.

6) “To borrow a phrase from the ultramacho Steve Rogers of The Ultimates: Hey, Marvel, what are you waiting for, ladies? CHRISTMAS?’” Y’know, the article says that, but what I hear is, “Captain America is as a prick is interesting because he’s a misogynist. Therefore, we should be misogynists, too, so that we can be as interesting as he is.” Byyyyye.

I think Film Crit Hulk makes a really good point. I’m not really in the Avengers fandom, but this is why I write about good and moral people. They’re stuck in a world that doesn’t line up with what they believe in. They have to fight to stay good in a world that’s pushing them to be pricks.

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.
