Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

i have a very liberal definition of griffins
going clockwise: rabbit/budgie, white-faced scops owls/house cat, cardinal/red fox, barn owl/grey wolf, harpy eagle/jaguar

Being a person named Griffin, this speaks to me.
I, for one, just stick to any bird and any feline as the front and hind, respectively. I also think the tails have a lot of room for character - some with lots of bushy fur, others with tufts of feathers on the ends.
Griffins are just so neat.

robin williams died today.
here is a list of things that robin williams was:
funny
sharp
kind
clever
and sad.
that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.
but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.
we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.
but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.
those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.
sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.
if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquire didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t. 
don’t.


i wasn’t going to reblog anymore on this but i read this and i feel like there are probably some folks on here who might need to read it, too.

One of the first comedy albums I was ever given was “Reality… What A Concept.” I loved it. I loved “Mork & Mindy.” I even loved Robert Altman’s “Popeye.” Robin Williams meant a lot to me when I was a kid. I knew nothing of drug use or depression. It never occurred to me that comedians, these…

For paeregrine in case you missed it. Beautifully put, PFT.

There is a company that will place cremation ashes inside of fireworks so that your loved one can literally “go out with a bang.”

Dammit, this was an idea I wanted to popularize. Although my idea comes with a cruise in international waters.

Let’s go on an adventure.

Yeeeaaah I knew it wouldn’t take long to see this reblogged without a source. These lovely, awe-inspiring, chill-inducing comics were made by Zac Gorman, whose works you can view here on his blog, Magical Game Time. His website is here, and his works can be purchased here.
