Stephen Colbert on Late Night with Seth Meyers

image

TCR | 2007.03.12 | It reads: “Dear Stephen, As editor-in-chief of Marvel, I am burdened with the handling of our character’s estates and the sad event that a hero should perish before his time. Captain America’s will was read last Friday, and while heavy hearted, I am proud to announce the star spangled Avenger has bequeathed his most valuable possession, his indestructible shield, to the only man he believed had the red, white, and blue balls to carry the mantle. Stephen Colbert. Welcome to the Marvel Universe. Sincerely, Joe Quesada.

How can you but just love this?

lindsayetumbls:

using nothing more than newton’s laws of gravitation, we astronomers can confidently predict that several billion years from now our home galaxy, the milky way, will merge with our neighbouring galaxy, andromeda. because the distances between the stars are so great compared to their sizes, few if any stars in either galaxy will actually collide.
any life on the worlds of that far off future should be safe, but they will be treated to an amazing billion-year-long lightshow.
a dance of a half a trillion stars, to music first heard on one little world, by a man who had but one true friend.

Where’s my goddamn transhuman robot body to house my consciousness?

Super bitter I’m gonna miss this. >:c

Man, animated DC stuff is so awesome. 

If there's any features you'd like to have/change in pokemon, what would they be?

atopfourthwall:

Oh, tons of features I’d like. Building my own gyms (why yes I am looking forward to ORAS), real-time battles (yes, I know about Pokken, but I don’t think there will be 718 Pokémon in that), customizable pokeballs (seriously why is this not a feature yet - it’d be a fun minigame!), the ability to return to old regions or at least play more than one league, etc.

I agree with all of these, though I don’t really care about customisable pokeballs. As long as it catches the things I’m good.

I have never seen an more accurate depiction

This is me, constantly. Ten, fifteen, twenty, one, less than half….

Quick reminder, that we often try to catch up with some super artist that isn’t even real. You know, that one who can do absolutely anything, learnt it within a week, doesn’t need any sleep and is working on like a hundred successful projects at the same time. We’re being all sad and frustrated because we think we’re no good compared to that one super artist. But then, who is?

Sometimes I ask myself, what things I can actually draw well.

The answer is, I still can’t draw like 98% of all the coolest stuff.

I was actually thinking about this today. Very true, and great reminder for us artsies! 

rosalarian:

Every single fantasy series eventually has a fan theory about how it was all REALLY just a hallucination by the main character, because they ACTUALLY in a mental hospital and just DREAMING their adventures because they’re totes crazy n’ stuff. Like, okay dude, thanks for the reminder that magic and monsters aren’t real, but your theory is neither unique nor interesting.

Calling a comic book artist an illustrator is like calling a film director a photographer. It only describes a small fraction of the job.

BAM!!

Centaurs aren’t real. Do you understand that?
