How to Criticize Israel Without Being Anti-Semitic →

this-is-not-jewish:

If you’ve spent any time discussing or reading about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I guarantee you’ve heard some variation of this statement:

OMG, Jews think any criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic!

In the interests of this post, I’m going to assume that the people who express such…

This is VERY good. As well as being great writing, it’s damned accurate and much needed.

Turnout fine again… | budgie's perch →

Some people – mainly tory politicians – argued that since the union strike votes received low turnouts in some cases, they were somehow less valid. And again, the same case is being made this week, by David Cameron among others. It’s utter nonsense, of course.

Utter, total, complete, nonsense.

But not for the reasons many suppose.

hoodiecap said: Cap visits a school assembly and they have him lead the pledge of allegiance but "under God" wasn't added until he went under the ice so he doesn't know that part so he doesn't say it and the next day all the headlines say "CAPTAIN AMERICA FORGETS GOD" and FoxNews freaks out.

Quote reblogged from Making it up as I go along. with 1,664 notes

Yes, I saw Twilight - my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!

Lauren Bacall (via frattaglia)

Bacall remains one of the greatest ever.

And, yes, this is the first time we’ve officially said that Matt Wilson is on colours.

Oh yeah. the release.

June.

Beautiful as always.

Flat out gorgeous.

UMBRAL #3 ON SALE

UMBRAL #3 goes on sale this week. Look at that cover! You won’t be able to miss it.

'Blood From a Stone' finds Rascal and Dalone caught in the smugglers’ caves, hoping for some respite — but there’s not much chance of that, especially when they encounter Shayim…

The order code for issue #3 is NOV130529, and you can read a six-page preview over at the book’s tumblr.

As always, digital readers can buy UMBRAL from Comixology (where you can also Subscribe to the series), or you can get it DRM-free directly from Image Comics.

Social media types can follow the book on tumblr and twitter, for all the latest updates (such as this rather charming sneak peek at the new issue).

By the way: the response to #2 was just as awesome as #1, and some readers have even declared UMBRAL their favourite new series. Which, I’m sure you’ll agree, is also awesome.

But we also heard from some readers whose stores sold out of UMBRAL #2 before they could buy a copy. Not so awesome.

Now, if that happened with issue #1, you simply had to wait for the second printing. But with issue #2 we deliberately printed enough so that stores could order more copies if they sold out, and they still can. We’re doing the same for #3, too.

So if you miss out, don’t be afraid to ask your store to order a copy for you. The order code for issue #2 is OCT130630, and once again, #3 is NOV130529.
