So. Let’s make this the master pimp post, shall we? A couple months ago, my company (a small digital media prodco within a large (CANAADIAN) one) decided we wanted to do a Lizzie Bennett style vlog series.
I asked what public domain novels we could adapt - and anamatics discussed Carmilla. The original lesbian vampire. ~25 years before Ol’ Drac. Fast foward to now, and WE’RE SHOOTING 36 EPISODES OF QUEER BUFFY with some brand’s financial involvement.
anamatics and Jordan Hall (jordanhall.ca) have created an engrossing, bechdel-passing, trope subverting, Jossverse-with-a-sprinkle-of-Alias-S2 world based on the original novella. It’s funny, snarky and sharp and then it’ll PUNCH YOU IN THE GUT WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT in the later eps. (Right, E?)
So yeah. My mission here as a producer is basically accomplished? (pitch gay shit, pitch gay shit again, get it financed and made?) Hah.
Also - This is not a coming out story. We have enough of those narratives. I want Gay Buffy. And here’s the start. :)
Here are the first 6. It gets REALLL REALLL after this!!

The “Body Beautiful System 5 Minute Shaper” with over 100 soft latex “shaping tips”…remarkably vague about how this apparatus works. 1960s (via)

This is so important I can’t even put it into words.
Not all Christians are closed minded assholes.
Not all Muslims are terrorists.
Not all atheists are anti-religion jerks.
"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."
Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
Just in case anyone thinks these are old posts still going round Tumblr: they’re not.
We still haven’t fully recovered from discovering the edible monstrosity that is the World’s Largest Gummy Worm, and yet the nightmarishly awesome potential of gummy candy continues to unleash even bigger creatures. Behold the seemingly endless sugar rush that is that the 26-Pound Edible Gummy Party Python made by Vat19.
"Tipping the scales at nearly 27 pounds, this huge candy snake packs over 36,000 calories into its nearly 8-foot-long frame. Boasting incredible details including intricate eyes, extensive and blended coloring, ridged coils, and thousands of individually carved scales, the Party Python will steal the show at any party."
Should you decide to splurge on this sweet monster serpent, we suggest buying some gummy rats as well to see if the Party Python with eat them before you eat it.
Available here in Blue Raspberry & Green Apple or Red Cherry & Blue Raspberry flavor combinations.
