Jubilee… You’re a teacher now. You’re going to get prosecuted if you carry on like that toward the students.
(Adjectiveless) X-Men preview.
Jubilee finally gets involved in an action scene :)
Also that last frame where the Sentinel squeezes its fist… is that a return of the “vampire mist form” used at the end of the Wolverine and Jubilee mini?
is this supposed to change my mind because it didn’t
IT IS NOT FUCKING JIF IF YOU TELL ME YOU PRONOUNCE IT THAT WAY I WILL LAUGH IN YOUR GODDAMN FACE BECAUSE GIF STANDS FOR “GRAPHICS INTERCHANGE FORMAT” NOT FUCKING “JRAPHICS INTERCHANGE FORMAT”
Okay, this actually irks me.
You use his invention everyday. The least you could do is respect his decision and pronounce it the way the inventor wants you to.
I mean honestly, the comments I see here all equate to “Thanks for your contribution. Unfortunately you don’t matter.”
//Well, in fairness, it does fly in the face of everything about phonetic pronunciations of abbreviations ever. I’m kind of like “thanks for your contribution but unfortunately my mind will never wrap around that pronunciation long enough to ever say it that way because it doesn’t make even one ounce of sense.”
Normally I like to give creators respect… But GIF is has a unique ring to it… While Jif is the stuff I use to clean crap off the stove-top with…
Lol, I remember Jubilee directly saying as much in uncanny x-men under Claremont, and since #notyourasiansidekick is a thing right now, thought I might as well dig it up and post it…
Preivew of the new Black Widow ongoing, featuring Nathan Edmonson on writing and the magnificent Phil Noto on art.
Wikileaks has apparently got hold of the draft IP section of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” deal and released it here.
TL;DR: It’s “a Christmas wish-list for major corporations" that "strongly reflected U.S. trade objectives and multinational corporate interests with little focus on the rights and interests of consumers, let alone broader community interests." according to an IP Law expert (Matthew Rimmer), quoted in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Most of the obnoxious IP provisions are being championed by the US and opposed by basically everyone else, and include:
- Pro big-pharma clauses which disrupt access to affordable generic medication.
- Strong Legal protection for Technological Protection Measures/DRM, even when said protections are for non-copyright purposes (eg region locking on DVD and Bluray, application of DRM to data in the public domain)
- Restriction of parallel importing.
- Holding ISPs liable for end-user internet piracy, and forcing them to enforce copyright on behalf of overseas companies.
- Extending patents to plants, animals, and medical proceedures.
- Considerably lengthening Copyright terms
All of these points seem to actually restrict trade rather than liberalise it, making one wonder how it can be legitimately called a “free trade” deal.
Story arc “Ghosts” Info:
Anka finally getting to do interiors, and it’s on the best x-team? h…HNNNNNG
Battle of the atom final issue preview. Don’t know what the hell’s going on with the faces here.
Maybe the artist’s trying to tell us that the whole event made the x-men look like some sort of clown sideshow?
>Decide to do some opengl programming, try to write a particle system using transform feedback.

>Turns out your program’s fine, it’s just that the “official latest version” display driver for your budget laptop has bugs. More recent versions of the driver have been made by radeon, but not released by the lazy incompetents at hewlett-packard.
>Finally solve the problem at 2am by installing an “unofficial” (hacked) more recent driver.
>Realise dealing with this shit has so badly affected you that you’re posting in the style of some intellectual giant from 4chan.
Loved Noto’s W&J mini, so it’s always good to see him revisiting the character. He’s doing a Black Widow ongoing next, so checking that out is pretty much mandatory too :)
