  2. Disney Pulls the Plug on Latest from Henry Selick; Stop-Motion Fans Cry Bitter Tears

    Today in Depressing

    It's a sad day for stop-motion animation. The latest project from Henry Selick, the director behind Coraline, James and the Giant Peach and The Nightmare Before Christmas (no, that wasn't Tim Burton) has had his latest project canned by Disney.

  3. Watch This Supercut Of Dana Scully Saying “Oh My God” [Video]

    I Want to Believe

    In retrospect, isn't it a little odd that it took Dana Scully a full seven seasons of The X-Files to become a believer? Especially considering how many times she felt compelled to utter "OMG" in the face of unexplainable. Seriously Scully, none of these moments made you question your belief system? Here's a supercut of Gillian Anderson being taken by surprise for all of you X-Philes out there, moments that, as we know, inevitably transformed into a cool, collected skepticism. Well, looks like its time for me to marathon The X-Files again. (via i09.)

  4. Ebay Has Banned The Sale of Magical Items, Now We’ll Fail Potions For Sure

    This is just like magic!

    Oh Ebay. You were there for me when I was 12 and able to convince my mother that I absolutely needed a crappy alarm clock with James Marsters' face on it, and you're here for me now as I struggle to buy college books and make rent. Unfortunately, it looks like you won't have my back when I graduate next year and need a spell that will ensure me a well-paying job right out of college: in their 2012 Fall Seller Update, Ebay announced that it will ban all sales of magic potions, charms, and spells effective August 30th.

  5. The Psychological Impact Of Sexual Objectification [Video]

    The Boob Tube

    Just kidding, it's a movie trailer for a fictional film called Ghost Tits. But hear me out: while yes, it is essentially about a doofy boyfriend whose life is "turned upside down" when his girlfriend (Olivia Munn) loses a cup size or two, perhaps it is also a metaphor for how objectification and the male gaze can warp not only the expectations placed upon women, but women's actual bodies. Perhaps the male gaze can actually alter what's real, shifting physical realities to conform to a certain level of social desirability. I swear, there's a feminist critique somewhere here! Oh, and Mr. Feeny makes an appearance and says "tits," (teehee) so you can watch it for that, too. (via Laughing Squid and Paulilu Mixtape.)

Can you handle this much action, adventure, and Steven Spielberg?

  8. 10 Feminist-Friendly Manga You Should Read

    Power Grid

    Are you interested in reading manga, but don’t know where to start? Are you an avid comics fan looking to bulk up you feminist-friendly reading list? Much like anime, good, feminist manga is often difficult to find, especially when you’re relying on reading titles that are legally licensed in the United States. It’s often a very thin line that separates manga that pokes fun at sexist tropes, and manga that regularly utilizes sexism to advance its plot, and even if you can find that rare-as-a-unicorn story, there’s no guarantee the story will be compelling and worth $10 a pop. But don't worry: we're here to help. Hit the jump for 10 manga series you should totally throw your money at!

  9. The Avengers’ Japanese Release Ignites Controversy

    what is this I don't even

    In preparation for The Avengers opening this month in Japan, the film's marketing team has come up with an ad campaign that has some people very upset, and rightfully so: in Japanese, the film's tagline is 日本よ、これが映画だ, translated as "Hey Japan, this is a movie". While that sentence might seem utterly inoffensive, for a few prominent voices in Japan, it's a phrase loaded with notions of cultural and cinematic superiority. Hey Mary Sue readers, this is a blog, hit the jump to find out more!

Finally, an adequate solution to the eternal, seemingly unsolvable equation: "Chocolate + ? = Cellulite-less thighs." Science strikes again, ladies!

  11. Our Favorite Rumor Of The Day: Will The Walking Dead Become a Feature Film?

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    Television-to-movie transitions are often very hit or miss. Sometimes it can go extraordinarily well, as was the case with The Muppets movie, and sometimes it can go horribly, horribly wrong, as distraught Avatar: The Last Airbender fans are quick to point out. As a result, fans are often understandably split over the issue of filmic reboots -- is it worth potentially sullying the source material? If Bloody Disgusting's Mr. Disgusting is correct about burgeoning rumors of a feature film adaptation of AMC's The Walking Dead, this timeless debate may once again ignite flamewars in comment sections across the Internet.

  12. Mutant Butterflies Emerge In The Wake Of The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

    i'll just leave this here

    Although the human impact of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was limited to physical injuries, excessive radiation exposure and the possibility that cancer could rear its ugly head in the future, the meltdown's toll on the environment has remained a mystery -- until now. In an attempt to measure the consequences of the nuclear accident, scientists studied butterflies collected from Fukushima last year, ultimately discovering a series of biological adaptations to increased levels of environmental radiation that does not bode well for local wildlife.

  13. Watch This Precious LEGO: The Lord of the Rings Trailer

    My Precious!

    When we caught a glimpse of the LEGO The Lord Of The Rings game earlier this summer, we understandably collapsed in a fan-panic. Not only are the LEGO games freaking adorable, this one seemed to feature actual dialogue from the film, an interesting turn from the usual gesturing/grunting thing LEGO game characters tend to use to communicate. Hit the jump for the new trailer previewed at Gamescom 2012, in addition to a cute, but maxim-heavy short about the history of the LEGO Group in honor of their 80th birthday.

  15. Vintage Photos Of Stylish, Norm-Challenging Tattooed Women

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Although women have achieved a certain level of freedom to decorate their bodies as they wish in modern society, the scandal of getting a tattoo or a piercing wasn't always limited to unruly teens going against their parents' wishes. At best, the subject of strange glances on the street, and at worst, the subject of ridicule, tattooed women bucked societal norms in order to decorate their skin as they saw fit, paving the way for today's inked chicks. Here are some great old photos of some lovely ladies with awesome tatts!

  16. Monday Cute: Dalmatian Adopts Tiny Orphaned Spotted Lamb

    Awwwwww

    Once again, animals prove to us humans that love knows no limits-- a spotted lamb in South Australia's Barossa Valley has been adopted by a Dalmatian dog, after being abandoned by her mother. Having no children of her own, the dog has taken to grooming and mothering the tiny lamb, a cross between Dorper ram and a cross-bred Dorper and Van Rooy ewe, whenever she can. According to the farm's co-owner, John Bolton, while they're still unsure whether they'll call the lamb a "sheep-matian" or  a "dal-dorper," they know for a fact that this uncanny parental bond has only benefited the baby lamb. Watch the video for some cross-species parenting in action, and try to contain your "awws!" to your cubicle! (via The Huffington Post.)
