This is the one time of year that I love wasps.

Not because the wasps themselves get any nicer. They’re horrid little creatures year round. No, it’s because I have a couple of big apple trees out back, and late August, early September is when the apples start ripening.

Now, if you don’t harvest your own fruit, there are two things you need to know about apples.

The first thing you need to know about apples is that, when apples get ripe, they tend to fall from the tree at the slightest breeze.

I often work late at the office; by the time I get home, there are piles of apples scattered everywhere - and sure enough, the wasps are out in force, gorging themselves on the fruit. When I go to clean up the windfallen apples, the wasps naturally do the “rawr, I’ma fuck you up!” routine for which wasps are known.

The second thing you need to know about apples is that they ferment very rapidly in the late August heat.

So: the wasps try to come at me, but they’re too drunk to fly. They get about an inch off the ground, then faceplant directly into the turf, flip over onto their backs, and lay there, legs twitching in the air as they try in vain to find something to sting.

Perhaps I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I bust up laughing every. single. time.

Fucking wasps.

"Ofcom has received six complaints after a lesbian kiss featured in Saturday night’s Doctor Who episode, “Deep Breath”.

The BBC Sci-fi drama came under fire from some fans for the“inappropriate” moment between lizard-woman Madame Vastra and her human wife Jenny…

What I love about this is that it showcases how completely opposite Hobbit and Dwarf culture are.

When a hobbit speaks to you directly— in a matter that could be construed as rude, no less— it’s a big deal. A big freakin’ deal. So he can’t even bring himself to expressing his displeasure at having his house hijacked by a bunch of foreign strangers without adding an apologetic disclaimer. This is the face of a hobbit who has been pushed to frustration, and that’s pretty damn rare.

Then Dwarves. They’re tough as nails and hard around the edges. It takes a hell of a lot to offend them, and even more than that to admit your own guff and apologize— so when somebody does apologize, you take it seriously. Even if you weren’t actually listening to whatever preceded that apology. Even if you don’t think it was worth apologizing for. That shit is serious business, and you take it seriously, yo. 

This is culture clash at its finest, reduced to two words.

In short: Peter Jackson’s a genius.

It is really good writing, but I just want to emphasise that Peter Jackson does not write these scripts alone. He has two collaborators, Fran Walsh (who is also his wife) and Philippa Boyens, and the three of them also wrote the screenplays for the Lord of the Rings trilogy together. While Peter Jackson is highly visible as the director of the films, and Walsh prefers to stay out of the limelight, I just never want their contribution to the Middle-Earth films to be overlooked. 

Because they’re great.

#not to mention the noises the Ringwraiths make were partly recorded by Fran Walsh #because she can make weird noises and I think that’s great #I like a woman with a way with words and an unearthly shriek

this information pleases me beyond words, thank you

I once went to the Renaissance Fair dressed as Marty McFly, and nobody got the joke.

That will forever be one of the most disappointing moments in my life.

This is my favorite photoset rn

I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.

This is heavy

So I’m moving into a new apartment, and I was told that the room had been damaged, but nothing could have prepared me for the fact that someone had carved Li Shang’s head out of the bathroom door and written “We must defeat the Huns!” on it.
