I haven’t posted anything lengthy or terribly eloquent on the subject of women in geek culture lately, have I? Have this instead.

I had an incredible urge to rewatch Buffy and dear lord these early episodes. Giles and Willow are the only people spared from the worst lines. And that’s maybe because they will never be able to do wrong in my eyes.

And then you skip forward to the fourth season and the writing is great and Buffy is adorable and I just want to watch this show forever.

awkwardsituationist:

by pairing skate lessons and boards with education initiatives, skateistan — a non profit organization that works with the support of local afghan communities — is using skateboarding as a tool of empowerment for more than four hundred afghan kids, many of whom live on the streets.  

more than 40 percent of skateistan’s students are female. though girls are banned from riding bikes in afghanistan, skateboarding is novel and remains permissible, and has now become the most popular sport for females in the country. 

(see also: skating in uganda)

They don’t really explain how they utilize skateboarding in order to educate children like they claim to do, but girls not being able to ride bikes is bullshit and giving kids a cool hobby is awesome, so cool. Also badass pictures.

What if you saw the world with your ears? Devil’s Tuning Fork is a first-person exploration/puzzle game in which the player must navigate an unknown world using visual sound waves. Inspired by M.C. Escher’s classic optical illusion and the echolocation of dolphins, The Devil’s Tuning Fork allows the player to explore a new mode of perception through sound visualization.

As a mysterious epidemic causes children everywhere to fall into comas, one child wakes up in an alternate reality.  It is up to this child, the player, to determine the cause of the epidemic and save the other children trapped here.  By way of the devil’s tuning fork, a magical instrument that allows the player to perceive sound waves, the player must find all the children and successfully escape this alternate reality, thereby waking up from the coma.

Devil’s Tuning Fork was created over 6 months by a group of DePaul Students for the Independent Games Festival, in which it won the student showcase award.  A full playthrough takes less than an hour, which feels just about right as your eyes might melt if exposed to its visuals for too long.  It’s an unsettling, disorientating, beautiful first-person puzzle/platforming masterpiece.  Highly recommended.

Download the full game, Free

Someone get markiplier on this.

I imagine that this movie would be much more enjoyable if all the dialogue were replaced with those from Kate Beaton’s comics
