Ornery and Frequently Defiant




I think this video might interest you guys.

4 days ago, Olivia Olson confirmed that Marceline and Bonnibel have dated before. The reason it has been confirmed is because the new Adventure Time book coming out soon may have details on their relationship, and their relationship obviously can’t be aired on TV because some states of America (and countries in the world) are against same-sex marriage and relationships. 

But yeah, they have indeed dated before.

Can we also talk about official Bubbline art drawn by Natasha Allgeri, former character designer and story board artist for Adventure Time, and now Showrunner of Bee and Puppy Cat!?

*internal screaming*

This may be the best plot development on this show yet

Uh oh



Why does it take actual effort to sound calm and normal during phone calls.

omg this

What helps is if you plan out what you’re gonna say, and then consider what your conversation partner might say in response to that, and so on, and ya know try to come up with all possible reactions and then game out each track the conversation could take ever in your head and spend time rehearsing so you make sure you get it right and then five hours later you’ve made the perfect phone call. Or passed out. Both are acceptable.



Now that I can breathe again, I’m so excited to announce that Bad Feminist will debut on next Sunday’s New York Times bestseller list at #13!

Gigantic thanks to all of you readers, booksellers, librarians, and BAD FEMINISTS for supporting roxanegay and this book. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Roxane Gay can’t possibly get congratulated enough. This is huge. 


You also have the bearing of a sucka

In the first issue Clint gets shot in the arm while wearing a grey suit. The next time we see him in the suit, nineteen issues later, the sleeve is still torn in the place where he got shot. 

I want to rub this comic against everyone’s bodies and talk endlessly about perfect visual storytelling for the rest of my liiiiife

look playswithbooks look

Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 am on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.


For those who don’t know what has been happening,

According to the girl’s mother, her injuries are severe, and indicate a vicious beating. Here is the account of what occurred from Tumblr:


One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.

”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter REDACTED aka REDACTED was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at REDACTED. Thank you in advance”. -REDACTED

Remember when SDCC said they didn’t want to make their anti-harassment policy clear because it would make it seem like there was a problem? (more)

well too fucking bad, now it REALLY looks like you have a problem, you fucks.

Justice. It cometh right soon, you dumb dicks.



I finally got my copy of SLASH: Romance Without Boundaries in the mail, and I’m so excited to play it!

For those of you who don’t know, SLASH is a card game similar to Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity—but with fan shipping!

Playing SLASH is really simple:

"Everybody gets a hand of their favorite characters from pop culture, history, and literature. The matchmaker  selects one from her hand and places it face up on the table. Each player in turn selects a possible 'ship  for that character hoping that the matchmaker chooses theirs. But, if she doesn’t you can always narrate the tale of this destined connection to win the favor of the table and overrule the matchmaker.” (Source)

Whoever has the best ‘ship for the matchmaker’s card gets the matchmaker’s card and wins the round!

But don’t worry about not knowing the characters, shows, and what have you. I was worried about that at first too when I first played it last year, but SLASH has a surprisingly vast array of characters from things like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Disney, Mass Effect, Star Wars, Godzilla, Rocky Horror’s Picture Show, and more. There’s not a lot of characters from anime, but there’ll definitely be quite a few you’ll recognize. Heck, it even has people from real life! (Hello Alex Trebek.)

On a similar note, SLASH also has a pretty diverse range of characters from all kinds of nationalities, races, ethnicity, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, worlds, and even species! There’re no underaged characters (for obvious reasons), but you still have a lot of shipping options. Each card comes with the character’s name, what show, book, etc. they’re from, their gender, and a short description.

Things can also get as steamy and raunchy as you, or you could keep things innocent and PG. It all depends on the players’ imaginations really, so whatever floats your boat. *Wink wink. Nudge nudge.*

SLASH is supposed to be around 45 minutes, but you can play as long as you like or until one player reaches a set amount of cards (as in Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity). The game requires at least three players, but the more players there are, the longer the game is. So the more the merrier!

With so much diversity and flexibility, SLASH is really all about great story-telling. But it not only pushes you to be imaginative and creative but also to think critically about your choice, hone your debate skills, and expand your knowledge about popular culture, history, and literature, which is all a nice way of saying you’ll have a crazy, fun time yelling passionately about your OTP at bunches of other people screaming passionately about theirs. Woo!

If you’d really like to own this game but don’t have the $25 + shipping to buy it, don’t sweat it! SLASH also has their own print-and-play version in their shop so you can join in on the fun regardless.

If you’re thinking of buying SLASH anyway, great! But be warned: Shipping took forever. I ordered it from the Kickstarter last year in October I think, but it didn’t get here until today! Fortunately, Games by Play Date kept us inform about SLASH's status, and the print-and-play version was always an option anyway, so it was no biggie.

But it’s finally here! It came in a simple white 7” X 5” box wrapped in plastic with four similarly plastic-wrapped decks of 100 alphabetized cards and a small double-sided sheet with directions. It’s definitely light and small enough to carry it around, so bringing it to parties is a whole lot easier. So with that in mind, I’ll definitely bring it by CSF sometime soon. It’s going to be a riot!

If you want to contact, support, or learn more about the creators of SLASH, just visit the Games by Play Date website, but methinks this fun little card they included in the game describes them—and the crazy fun that is SLASH—pretty well…
