Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?

You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.

How can you help?

Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.
This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.

If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:

Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
hand wipes
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card

Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.

This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

Some of the most badass photos I could find from this year’s Quidditch World Cup.

Be sure to check out more photos from these photographers and like their work!

y’all make sure you reblog this version with the photographer credits in the actual body of the post!!! 

Whoever comes up with consent-y captions for any of these pics (and helps get the photographer’s/participants’ consent to use them for this campaign)  wins my eternal gratitude.  Or, if you’re feeling lazy, just enjoy these awesome pictures of consenting adults playing quidditch! 

For the first picture, “We only go when they say “Ready”” (brooms up is more quidditch accurate but for the campaign ready makes more sense…)

His name is Liui Aquino, a filipino cosplayer. And I think, by far, he’s the greatest Hiccup cosplayer I’ve seen.

That little girl is all of us.
We are her
She is us.
We are one.

Thanks Liui Aquino! Rockin’ the Filipino cosplay scene!

He looks like Hiccup real-life-ified! Fantastic!

I just had a discussion with a nice, but I think very misinformed guy on Twitter, where he said that the reason so few comics are written by women (I guess he doesn’t count alt comics, webcomics, mini comics and manga as ‘comics’) was because women simply are not interested in…

I am making a webcomic! It will be out soon. I have the first chapter done.

I shelved this project a few years ago. I was burnt by my literary agent experience, and while I pitched this project to a few publishers on my own, it never found a home— the market was weird, they had similar projects in the works, various reasons.

I’m wondering if I should try again. And serialize it here, as a webcomic, on Tumblr.

It’s about a one-child policy, and a natural disaster, and a generation of replacements for those who were lost. And I still really love it. It’s a story I want to tell. It won me an amazing fellowship in 2011, and I spent weeks in China looking at the ruins of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake school buildings.

Would anyone read it?

I might draw it anyway.

It’s called Some Did Rest.

I would read this so hard.

I’d read this!

let's gif: pokemon sage - [2/?]

ALRIGHT LISTEN UP KIDS
EVERYBODY PLAY THIS FUCKING GAME RIGHT NOW ITS CALLED POKEMON SAGE AND ITS A FANMADE POKEMON PROJECT ON RPG MAKER
look at that town
its fucking beautiful right
thats where you live bro
what does this game not have
there’s tons of racial diversity and the FIRST NON-WHITE POKEMON PROTAGONISTS LOOK
over 200 totally original pokemon and theyre all beautiful look at this






they also have amazing puns for names such as












and my personal favorites
and some are just plain awesome like















its a fucking dragon viking ship how cool is that
basically there is not a bad pokemon in this gen i dare you to find one
did i mention that your rival IS AN OUTLAW WEARING A COOL ASS PONCHO AND HAT


look at that guy how can you not like him
the music is AMAZING and super catchy
theres a lot of multicultural influences and mishmashing and basically its super awesome
everything is original except basic item sprites
it has the nostalgic feel of the good old pokemon and is made in the style of gen 3 but is so full of originality and surprises that you’ll be constantly amazed with this game
just play it
the demo is out right now and the full game is in progress! come on lets show these guys that what theyre doing is a REALLY GREAT THING and that it NEEDS TO CONTINUE!
ive never even been this excited for a real pokemon game but as soon as i saw this i was blown away
please play this game
please
you will not regret it

Oh my gosh I didn’t know I needed this. This is so exciting and those example pokemon are just great. O_O
Ummm so this game sounds cool and all and diversity is nice but considering the official Pokemon games are from Japan and Japanese creators and, up to gen 5, are set in terrains incredibly similar to that of Japanese islands and have strong influences from Japanese culture, folklore, and mythology, I am pretty sure that the protagonists of those games are also Japanese.

I thought Valka’s dragons > people thing was gonna be played up more because I was really starting to see her mentality as a foil to Stoick’s mentality from the first movie. Her insistence that people can’t change was similar to Stoick’s former insistence that dragons are just murderous animals; Hiccup opposed the latter in the first movie so I was expecting him to oppose the former in this movie, putting things in the balance. But the movie went a totally different direction that was less interesting. The movie was good and rather touching, but I don’t think it had the depth of the first one.
