There are 3 days left until COSMOS premieres on FOX at 9/8c. I know you guys are very excited and just in case you missed one of the coolest live Q & A’s on March 4th, then you’re in luck! Here is a video that features some of our favorite COSMOS rockstars like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan, and Seth MacFarlane. They’ll answer questions like how they brought COSMOS together or what makes this COSMOS different from the previous one.
The original COSMOS has been said to be one of the most inspirational documentaries of the 80’s seen by over 400 million people in 60 counties and the new COSMOS aims to continue inspiring people with the premiere being simulcast on 10 U.S. television networks, the largest television rollout in history. Just as NASA continues to inspire not only the passionate astronomy fans, but also the average everyday person who never felt interested in science, COSMOS hopes to do the same. So what are you waiting for? Check out the video and if you’re feeling inspired and proactive, then head on over to penny4nasa.org/take-action/ and take action today!

The Dark: Edited By Ellen Datlow
Recommended by tracy-v, and a freaking great one.
Ellen Datlow is a very good editor, and some folks may know her name better when partnered with Terri Windling’s. The two have collaborated on many fairy tale collections.
This isn’t one of them.
These are sly little creepers just itching to get under your skin, in the back of your mind, and setting up flares out of the corners of your eyes.
“The Ghost of the Clock”- Tanith Lee. A quote (long):
“Did you see the two images painted on the face?”
“Youth and Age, they’re called.”
Tanith Lee. Just. If you know her work you can finish that. Or read book.
"The Gallows Necklace"-Sharyn McCrumb
Honestly? I like this one because my favorite McCrumb book is Rosewood Casket. This story is NOTHING like that.
"Brownie And Me"-Charles L. Grant
I actually like this better than his urban fairytales.
There are about 15/16 stories in here, from an assortment of authors. Wonderful winter reading.

not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.
Yooo my country’s not in this list so here’s the suicide hotline for Indonesia: (+62)21-500454
Reblog this around!
suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. there is nothing that is so bad that it requires killing yourself. suicide is NEVER the answer
Suicide is not an escape route. People’s lives will NOT be improved by your absence.
Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.
This convention does so many things right. Here’s just another example.
