Is Orlando Jones now writing his own fan fiction? Specifically, his own “Evolution” behind-the-scenes slash fan fiction?

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

thisfeliciaday:

This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

Conversations with Co-Workers (First in a Series)

Liz (regarding upcoming CBS series "Scorpion," which stars Robert Patrick): I enjoyed it
Ben: you can’t be trusted with former "X-Files" cast members, though
Ben: i mean, neither can i
Ben: but still
Liz: you're just saying that because of those 13 episodes of "Crisis" I watched
Ben: JUST saying that

"You silence our voices, but we are still heard."

HOW COOL IS THIS MARKETING?!?! Like the rebels are hacking into the capitol’s twitter!!!!

(Thanks toastbabeis and mockingjaysource for noticing it and jenliamjosh for reblogging)

I love it when marketing folks do the smart.

I don’t like to point fingers, but I have to say that this is maybe a new low.

Elaine Stritch rests her bike, reads a note, almost causes a riot.      
NEW YORK, June 26—TOLD TO KEEP HER SHIRT ON – Blonde Elaine Stritch, understudy to Ethel Merman in the Broadway hit, “Call Me Madam,” wears halter and shorts which cause her arrest in Central Park. Today she was fined $1 and told by Magistrate Emilio Jones, “A beautiful girl like you could cause a small riot and cause a large crowd to collect by removing your shirt.” “Well,” she replied, “I was there all day and nothing happened.” (AP, 1951)

If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.

As reported by Al Jazeera America, colleges across the country are replacing the word “rape” in their sexual assault policies with “non-consensual sex” because schools don’t want label students “rapists”.

Day 5 at the TCA Press Tour: A Miniature Play

Chris Carter: Do you want to see one of our boards [filled with index cards laying out a future episode of "The After"]?
Me: Sure! [gets up out of chair to stand over his shoulder and look at his iPhone]
Me (out loud): Wow. How many cards is that?
Me (inner voice): Oh shit I'm leaning over Chris Carter and if he turns his head three inches he's going to see right the hell down my shirt.
Chris Carter (not looking down my shirt, thank fucking god): 64.
Me (adjusting shirt): Neat.

This is the trailer for a proposed documentary about Carol Kaye. You might not have heard of her, but you’ve definitely heard her play. 

Her bass and/or guitar work can be heard on classic tracks by Richie Valenz, Simon and Garfunkle, The Beach Boys, The Monkees, Ray Charles, Ike & Tina Turner, Nancy Sinatra, Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Barbra Streisand, Dusty Springfield, David Axelrod and many, many more.

Oh, and she performed on the themes for M*A*S*H, Mission: Impossible, Get Smart, Hogan’s Heroes, The Love Boat, Cosby Show, Hawaii Five-O, The Addams Family, The Brady Bunch and The Streets of San Francisco. 

We’ll save a list of her film score work for another time.
