I'm David. This is where I post various things and it's cool if you like some or all of them. I finally got around to not having the default layout. I guess I get around to things eventually.

5 actually good music videos you missed will waiting for J. Lo and Iggy’s “Booty” 

1. “How We Be” by Sinkane

Sinkane’s new video is a good reminder that there are other dance moves besides twerking. The London-born Sudanese producer premiered his latest video “How We Be” on BuzzFeed earlier this week. It features some incredible talents dancing step, ballet and break in picturesque New York locations.

"How We Be" totally nails that carefree summer vibe that’s slipping away as we head into the serious music of fall.

If feminists have been ruining gaming for years, why isn’t it ruined by now?

discovergames:

I have a question for those who legitimately think that women and feminists "have ruined video games" and are "tearing the video game industry apart," and I’m going to try to ask it as sincerely as possible. Women have been playing games from the beginning, and at a steadily increasing rate, and feminists have been criticizing and engaging with the medium and the industry for a long time. So my question is: why isn’t everything ruined? 

Honestly, if even a tenth of your doom-and-gloom predictions about the effects of feminism on videogames were accurate, we should have long ago seen the death of the whole industry, or at the very least the death of the kinds of white-man-centric torture porn that feminists critique most often, right? But that hasn’t happened. The industry in general and those games in particular remain standing, quite unaffected by the machinations of the Feminist Illuminati. What I’m saying is that, despite what you think have been feminists’ best efforts to ruin your favorite hobby, everything is not only still here, but in fact still exactly as you like it. Here, I’ll illustrate for you:

(INDIGNANT HUFFING) NOT ALL M……ale lions

the more i think about it, the weirder this comment seems. how does this man know that being a male lion is more stressful than being a female lion. has he lived as both a female and male lion before. is this man an Animorph

male lions are lazy fucks. they CHOOSE to fight cos they’re BORED.

As a professional Ethologist who specializes in apex predator and primate behavior, I can fully support this lazy lion notion.See this gorgeous guy? 
This is Zero, the most photographed lion in National Geographic history (so I’ve been told). While his huge frame and two-toned mane make him an intimidating sight, he is essentially the biggest baby I observed while in South Africa.
You would hear these deep roaring moans echo across the reserve… and it was Zero, whining for the girls (Maggie and Lisa) to bring him food. The lazy bum would just roll around in the river bed moaning and groaning until the females would show up with a kill. 
Sure, he could fight if there happened to be a rival male in the area. And his ‘mock charge’ display was intimidating enough to keep just about everyone* out of his way… but 99% of the time this guy was all about moaning (for food), mating, and mane-flips.
* - The only animal not run off by Zero’s display was a honey badger, who - true to form - did not care.

Quote reblogged from ❀❀❀ with 68 notes

That’s who is behind this entire situation: anti-woman trolls who intentionally distort the meaning of the word “ethics” to further their own agenda and mislead their followers. There are some beating the #GamerGate drum who sincerely believe that it’s not related to misogyny or the persistent attacks on Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn, that it’s simply about keeping the games press accountable. It’s impossible to extricate that hashtag from its roots, though, which grew out of unconscionable smears and threats against two prominent women in gaming merely because they are prominent women in gaming.

All the conspiracies and trumped-up claims of “evidence” of collusion among developers, press agents and the press spread by the #GamerGate founders are lies and distortions aimed at driving Quinn, Sarkeesian and other women out of videogames. Whether it’s hate, fear or simply the grotesque joy horrible people find in maliciously denigrating others, this entire #GamerGate nonsense is built on silencing women and shutting them out of games.

Quote reblogged from Rachel The Sassy Nerd with 32,026 notes

Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”

"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.

After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.

[…]

She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family.
