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.

HE HAS BEEN ARRESTED.

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:

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.

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…

Exercise caution, especially with things labeled “fresh” pizza

I’m more worried about the “real” plastic surgeon

My favorite is the one that implies it’s okay to have x-rays if you’re actually carrying a child and only fakers need to tell somebody

ACTUAL MESSAGE OF (500) DAYS OF SUMMER THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REALIZES

JGL has just about talked himself hoarse explaining this.

The relationship model in the film isn’t him, it’s Gubler’s character, who when asked about his dream girl, says a few things he might wish for, but then goes on to say that his actual girlfriend is better than his dream girl, because she’s a real person.

Hear ye, hear ye! 500 Days of Summer is actually a How-Not-to-Have-a-Relationship story. I cried at that movie because that asshole was so clueless.

Today is my day to enter the Birthday Unending, though since it is Unending, perhaps it was always my day? The Birthday contains much mystery. I bring with me my doubts, my fears about the future, my loneliness, and a catapult with which I can launch all of them deep into the corn maze. They will find their way back to me-- they always do-- but for a while they will be gone, and perhaps the things that live in the maze will gnaw on them and make them smaller, more manageable, when they return.

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN YOUR TIME TO COME TO US, BUT NOW IS THE TIME WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND IT IN YOURSELF TO ASK, AND SO NOW IS THE TIME WHEN WE SAY “WELCOME.”

WELCOME.

YOU ARE BRAVER THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE.

HERE IS YOUR SEAT AT THE TABLE.  HERE IS YOUR CONICAL HAT.  HERE IS A BASKET FOR YOUR DOUBTS AND YOUR FEARS AND YOUR LONELINESS.  KEEP THEM CLOSE BUT SET ASIDE, FOR YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, AND YOU NEED FEAR NOTHING, SAVE FOR MAYBE THE CORN MAZE.  DON’T GO IN THERE.

STAY WITH US.

WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY.  WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY.  WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY UNENDING.

“Killed 99 bears”
a fact that if actually accomplished, should be put on a tombstone.

My favorite part is “We hope he has gone to rest.” What, like… they weren’t sure? Maybe, if ever the bear uprising should start again, he would rise from the ground to finish what he started and slay that 100th bear?Was this man so powerful they are concerned he might not have decided to rest at all and is simply biding his time?

The bears made that tombstone.
A warning, and a prayer.
That he really, truely stays down.

This is too badass not to reblog.

#i had 99 problems and they were all bears so i fucking killed them

? I didn’t reblog/tag when that Canadian bear romance showed up again. It included excerpts this time. And anecdotes about having to read it for Canadian lit courses because it won a major Canadian literary prize.

I think “we hope he has gone to rest” is just wishful thinking, because they all know he actually got chained to a mountain for eternity and every day a bear comes by and eats his liver and then makes fun of his tiny dick. (Also, yeah, I looked up the bear book. That author wasn’t playing around.)

So, I knit too tight and purl too loose

And I purl backwards? So it remains knitting? Gah!

Okay, so I was inserting my needle into the stitch the same direction as the knit as I tried to purl. That should do it
