Nathan is the captain. He makes sure everybody is having the best time and doing their best work - it’s a responsibility for the star of the show that most actors aren’t up to or ignore. - Joss Whedon on Nathan Fillion
What amazes me 10 years after Firefly, he’s the same guy. Incredibly talented. Modest. Funny. Full of passion and things to say. He does what he does for the right reasons: This guy loves telling stories. I love how much attention he’s getting right now. It’s well deserved. And overdue. - Nathan Fillion on Joss Whedon
That was just “Mountain Sound” by Of Monsters and Men.
In case anyone was wondering, this is what we’re actually celebrating on cinco de mayo. Idk about you guys but I just use it as an excuse to put on a sombrero and get shwasty.
“Yo listen up here’s a story
About a little guy that lives in a blue world
And all day and all night and everything he sees
Is just blue like him inside and outside
Blue is his house with a blue little window
And a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him and himself
And everybody around
‘cause he ain’t got nobody to listen to
I’m blue da ba dee da ba die…”

I had to explain this in philosophy yesterday. to fellow adults.
It is so shocking when grown adults (from some super sheltered midwestern suburb usually) are like “uhmmm monkeys and humans barely even look alike, and like… evolution? i mean, we aren’t pokemon, duh!”
I just don’t even know how to respond to such fuckery.
This post is a good resource, but I honestly think people like that usually don’t WANT to learn. They turn away and go “NO CUZ THE EARTH IS ONLY 6000 YEARS OLD!!!”
This was magical.
If you ever needed a reason to follow @TheDailyShow, this is it.
Here’s the original segment, in case you missed it.
This has nothing to do with my blog, but as a lifelong fan of Jon Stewart, let me explain you a thing here.
Yes Jon Stewart was born Jonathan STUART Leibowitz. His father is a physics professor and his mother was a teacher for Jon’s whole childhood. When he was an adult, Jon had his name legally changed because his father had WALKED OUT on the family when Jon was 11, leaving Jon’s mother to raise him and his older brother Larry alone on a teacher’s salary. That’s why any time the show does a feature on teachers, Jon is noticeably very sympathetic.
Jon isn’t ashamed of being Jewish, he’s ashamed of the son of a bitch that spawned him.
When Aisha Tyler was selected to be the presenter for the 2012 Ubisoft E3 press conference, she received an unprecedented flood of hate from trolls who complained about the fact that she knew nothing about gaming. Too bad haters didn’t do their homework first, because as it turns out Aisha Tyler knows more about gaming that all of us put together. Her Facebook response was awesome and predictably went viral. In case you missed it, here’s her masterpiece. Haters, take note.
I’ve played since I was a little kid.
Since I begged my dad to buy me a Nintendo LCD Donkey Kong, Jr.
Since I blew through three weeks’ allowance playing Defender at the laundromat.
Since you were a twinge in the left side of your daddy’s underoos.
I’ve been a gamer since I made friends with a girl in the 5th grade just to get at her Atari.
Since I missed the bus playing Galaga after school.
Since I missed the start of Return of the Jedi playing Tempest in the theater lobby.
You think you know. You don’t know.
I’ve been a gamer since before you could read.
Since I aced midterms after staying up all night playing Evil Tetris.
Since I became dorm champ at Leisure Suit Larry.
Since I double-wielded on Time Crisis 3 at Fuddrucker’s.
I was a voice in not one, but two major video game titles.
I hosted the Reach Beta tutorial.
I was a Gears of War superfan panelist at ComicCon.
I hosted the Ubisoft presser at E3 2012.
I didn’t do any of it for the money.
For most I got paid next to nothing, and for some, less than that.
I did it because I love video games.
Because I’ve dreamt since I was a kid of being in one of the games I love.
How many games have you done voices for?
How many cons have you repped at?
Your buddy’s Unreal Tournament garage deathmatch doesn’t count.
I go to E3 each year because I love video games.
Because new titles still get me high.
Because I still love getting swag.
Love wearing my gamer pride on my sleeve.
People ask me what console I play.
Motherfucker, ALL of them.
I get invited to E3 because real gamers know I’m a gamer.
I don’t do it for the money.
I have plenty of money.
I don’t do it for the fame.
I do it because I love video games.
I don’t give out my gamertag because I don’t want a mess of noob jackholes lining up
to assassinate me on XBL.
I don’t give a shit what you think about my gamerscore.
I don’t play to prove a point.
I don’t play to be the best.
I play because I love it.
I’ve been playing my whole life.
I’m not ashamed of it.
I don’t apologize for it.
It’s who I am.
To the core.
I’m a gamer.
So to all the haters out there who claim I don’t play;
To the GAF dicks,
To every illiterate racist douchebag on Youtube:
Flame away. Go nuts.
Post every jackass comment your heart desires.
I’ll still be playing when your mom’s kicked you out of her basement
and you have to sell your old-ass console
and get a real job.
For now, I say to you respectfully,
and I mean this from the bottom of my heart,
And not a single fucking game dev came to her aid when this happened
NOT A SINGLE FUCKING ONE
But when Felicia Day’s lily white ass got insulted, PEOPLE GOT FIRED. People lost their minds and bent over backwards to kiss her ass.
Aisha only had Black women to back her up.
