should i read john dies at the end? is it good idk
My boyfriend is currently trying to get me to read it. He says it’s a wonderful and witty book written by one of the guys who writes for cracked.com.
Maybe give it a chance?
It’s a fun read. Kinda meta, rather juvenile humor at times, but as long as you don’t take it too seriously, it can be both hilarious and scary.
It is in fact written by the bossguy writer/chief editor of Cracked and I find it both the scariest and funniest horror-comedy work I’ve encountered.
The horror side of it hits on everything I crave from the genre; surreal phenomenon and creatures that are given just enough explanation to still be tantalizingly bizarre. At many points it pulls off “Lovecraftian” horror better than Lovecraft actually did, with the added bonus that the author isn’t a misogynistic racist.
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
It’s time for another Ghibli Jam! Once again this year it will be running from the 3rd until the 9th of march (next week!!!) For those new to Ghibli Jam it’s a week long art/comics/cosplay/literally anything creative Studio Ghibli inspired jam, where we all come together and create things inspired by the films (and games) we’ve come to love.
- Ghibli Jam is open to all submissions! However please keep them safe for work/kids.
- Submit your art HERE, I’ll also be checking the tag “ghibli jam 2014” as well but tumblr tags can be a bit weird sometimes so just submitting straight to the blog will probably be the safest option.
- When you submit please remember to include a link to your blog/website so people can find more of your art.
- Please only submit something you have made yourself (you’d think this would go without saying but it happened last year…)
- Please only submit new art, the idea is to encourage people to create something new during the week, rather than just submitting older stuff they’ve made in the past.
- Your submissions might take a little while to go up, be patient (there’s only one of me, sadly) but if a few days go by and it isn’t up send me a message and i’ll sort it out.
Last year was a great success, with about 300 submissions in the end. I hope this year will be just as good or even better, so if you can help spread the world (reblogs etc) that would be greatly appreciated! Have fun and if you have any questions send me a message. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
So (almost) every Sunday I spend a big chunk of the day playing Pathfinder (which is basically Dungeons and Dragons) over Skype with some rad nerds, and as a result I never get to do Character Solidifying Sunday but this week I remembered to doodle a thing sort of ahead of time and if you want to ask things throughout the day I’ll try and doodle responses over the next couple days.
So this is Oksana, the character I play in the aforementioned game. She’s a grumpy one-eyed witch-hunting inquisitor who hates magic and nobles and nobles who use magic. Her character sheet is over here and if you scroll down to the bottom there’s an abridged version of her backstory and a short personality summery to get you started.
This doesn’t look like a thing I drew I shouldn’t doodle at 4am.
Bonus nerd points for nerds: Consider movesets or in-battle strategies
