Villa Vals

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

So, I was looking at a baby charmander art and was thinking, “They can’t have that flame tail in the egg, can they?” I mean, it’s possible that the flame develops when they’re ready to hatch. But then, what if instead the mother or father has to light the charmander’s tail when they’re first born?

Have you heard? Dreamworks Animation and Studio Mir, the company behind Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, announced Thursday they will work together to produce up to four new animated television series in the next four years. 
This is huge both because a Korean company has never partnered on such a large scale with an American animation group, and because these shows will be created in 2D animation. I’m ecstatic!
It’s great to see that Korean animation is being taken seriously enough to be treated as a creative equal rather than just as a source of cheap production. Studio Mir’s work is undeniably beautiful, and if Mir’s talent can be combined with the storytelling prowess exhibited in How to Train Your Dragon 2, I will be a very happy customer. 
An article inthe Korea Herald had the following to say: 

“The contract with DreamWorks is meaningful since we will be working as partners,” Studio Mir founder and executive producer Yoo Jae-myung said.
“This has never been done before by a Korean studio.”
 A Studio Mir spokesman said details regarding the titles of the cartoons could not be revealed, but that they would be in 2-D.

This is great news for both companies, since each has had some fairly concerning press in the past few weeks, between the financial troubles of Dreamworks Animation (now under direction of new chief financial officer Fazal Merchant) and the on-again/off-again nature of Korra Book Three, now safely on Nick.com. 
Speaking of The Legend of Korra, Studio Mir uploaded a lovely picture on Facebook yesterday thanking fans for their support of Book Three.

Uganda held an invite-only Pride parade this weekend, the first since the Anti-Homosexuality Act was overturned. Being gay is still illegal in Uganda, but it is no longer illegal to “promote homosexuality” by associating with other LGBT people or being “gay in public.” Police gave their permission for the event, and there were no protesters. Small steps, huge impact. (via BuzzFeed)

The internet’s most beloved geek, Wil Wheaton, calls out misogyny in gaming, and confronts the men who attack him for doing so. Incredible. 

Wil Wheaton, mensch.

"I can’t recall women threatening to rape and murder people they don’t like"

Really Will Wheaton? reeeeeeaaaaally?

Wait, he used comments that were all suggesting to talk about the corruption in game journalism instead as an example of misogyny??

How is that hateful of women???

Also, wasn’t Wil Wheaton under a lot of fire from women because of some two spirit thing he said? I’m pretty sure they said some pretty mean things to him.

I saw that and I was like… wtf??? Misogyny? Criticizing a career field and it’s corruption and not at all indicating any specific gender is misogyny????

I never liked Wil Wheaton and now I like him even less

While you’re technically right, you’re missing the context. There was recently a scandal involving a female game developer named Zoe Quinn, whose ex-boyfriend claimed she cheated on him with five different game journalists. The response was an overwhelming wave of misogyny that was not only directed toward Quinn, but also feminist video game critic Anita Sarkeesian, who was threatened so badly she ended up having to flee her house and call the police. These responses are implying that the response was a justified response to Quinn’s sex scandal, and more worthy of attention than the abuse women in gaming endure.

^ This. Context is key.

These comments aren’t really suggesting an in-depth examination of corruption in gaming journalism. They’re suggesting that one example of a possible scandal involving a woman allegedly using her sexuality to swing reviews in favor of her games warrants more discussion about the alleged corruption then the fact that she was subsequently submitted to a large-scale attack involving multiple threats to her personhood by uninvolved strangers on the internet, or the fact that such threats are far more common than the scandals that supposedly started it.

Because getting “accurate” reviews on up-coming games is a far more pressing social issue than is the fact that threatening female-identifying people with physical & sexual abuse, torture, and murder for being female in a public gaming space is COMMON.
