This is one of the reasons I love Marvel
Go Draw That Thing!
These two German nerds dressed up as Victorian Janeway and Lady Data for a sneak preview of Star Trek Into Darkness. Why? I don’t know. And not because I don’t read German, because I DO. She talks about how they saw the sneak preview, and how she did her hair, and how the insignia on the skirt doesn’t exactly match the uniform but there is not really an explanation of why this happened.
BUT DOES THERE NEED TO BE???
Thanks, Amy, for the heads up!
I sincerely apologize for her feet. But I am really happy with her hair.
Engineering Change, One Ad at a Time
Imagine this: In the middle of a billion-dollar televised spectacle of sporting violence, sandwiched between beer ads and gyrating plastic cheerleaders, surrounded by the latest Madison Avenue pleas for flavored taco shells and montages of young, hip people using that one new e-reader that everyone likes so much, 120 seconds of hope emerged.
Here is that hope.
It comes in the form of this Rube Goldberg-inspired ad for Goldie Blox, a series of building toys aimed at smashing the blinding pink wall put up around young girls and their toys. Maybe we should change it to Ruby Goldberg after this? Because they just owned it.
Here’s the deal: I don’t have to tell you how amazing this toy is (although I have before) or how great this video is (because that will be obvious when you watch it). What you need to do is go vote for this ad to be featured during the next Super Bowl!!!! Yes. Go vote. Go now, and go every day. The whole world has a chance to see this.
The power is literally in your hands. Use them to build some little girl’s future. Then who knows what she might build?
I just reread Briar’s Book, so have a Rosethorn/Crane argument.
edit: fixed the color of Crane’s robe, thanks for pointing it out.

Someone asked me to post these two companion pieces together so it was easier to reblog them.
