When the word ‘selfie’ became an actual word, my grandpa had me explain to him what it meant. When I finished, he found this picture and asked “is this a selfie?” I told him it was and he simply said “I was taking selfies before it was cool.” So here’s my grandpa taking a selfie in his Coast Guard uniform. (Circa 1959) Can we make my grandpa internet famous? I’d love to explain to him what Tumblr is. ;P

At the Cal-Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe, the Nevada/California state line actually runs through the swimming pool.
Fun fact:  Cal-Neva was once co-owned by Frank Sinatra.

This is cool as fuck cause you can tell people you swam from Nevada to California

or that your penis reaches all the way to California

There are two types of people

Let’s talk about Renee Montoya for a minute.
She’s a character that was created for the Batman animated universe and first appeared in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992. It’s traditionally the fate of characters created in expanded universes to just fade away once the piece ends, but Detective Montoya joined the relatively small list of characters (like Harley Quinn, Mas y Menos, X-23, and Phil Coulson) to make the tough jump from expanded universe to the original comics.
First, she started guest starring in Batman and other comics related to Gotham City before becoming a major character in Gotham Central, a comic series that focuses on the Gotham police department. In that series, she is outed as a lesbian in an attempt to discredit her. She gets disowned by her religious parents and eventually quits the force out of disdain for the corruption she sees.
Then she becomes a major character in yet another comic series, 52 where her sexuality is NOT erased, her interracial lesbian relationship is shown and furthers her own character development, and she befriends The Question, a prominent DC superhero. Eventually, he passes on the torch and moniker to her and she becomes The Question.
So there we have it. A queer woman of color became The Question after starting as a side character in a non-canon animated television show.
How fucking cool is that?


Then the New 52 comes along and fucks it all up, just like everything the New 52 touches.

Comic Book Meme: [1/5] Favorite Male Characters 

Terry McGinnis /// Batman Beyond

How did Bruce do this for so many years? Then I remember. He did it with discipline. Willpower. Psychosis. And the painkillers that are about to shut his liver down for good. I’m congratulating myself for getting out while I’m still young and can hopefully recover…when I remember something else. Others out there, fighting against impossible odds, for their city, for their families, even for me… They’ve taught me that, as long as there are people in need and we have the capability to help them…then that’s what we do.

Just found the first fic I remember reading on-line. You know. In like 1998. When I was 13?

You bet your ass I reread a little and then wanted to die.

Thank everything holy my first website died with Geocities and I never backed anything up. I don’t even…

I will pay money if anyone can track down this old Batman/Green Lantern fic from roughly 1997. Kyle Rayner is killed somehow and Batman takes over as GL. I’m sure it’s not as good as I remember it being, but it’s still the high water mark that I compare all other fics to today. I have searched high and low for it and I believe it is gone forever.

i don’t play kingdom hearts and i don’t care about context

but for me this is a gif of a chess piece trying to seduce a girl by sensually thrusting its crotch at her and a suave guy in the background wondering why his chess friend can’t just be chill around the ladies

so this is what Kingdom Hearts looks like to outsiders

I have to reblog this too just because it makes me crack up.
