Selina Kyle (Catwoman) is bisexual and that's just keen

I haven't read a Catwoman comic in...well, ever, but the news that the current writer of the Catwoman comic, Genevieve Valentine, has confirmed that Selina Kyle is bisexual is fantastic. As you can see above, the most recent issue shows Selina smooching the new Catwoman, Eiko Hasigawa (according to the Buzzfeed article, Kyle is a mob boss now).

Looks like there is going to be an Atom spinoff sorta starring...the Sara Lance Black Canary?!

Just read this on The A.V. Club. I saw it earlier while Googling, but brushed it off as one of those wild rumors/clickbait that pops up all the time. Boy, was I wrong. According to The A.V. Club, The CW is planning on doing an Arrow/The Flash spinoff starring The Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold, and...Sara Lance?

Unite the Seven!

Duuuude, Jason Momoa as Aquaman is one of the best casting choices. I know there are people who either don't like his appearance or his race, but who the fuck really cares? This is how Arthur Curry should look. I do hope they keep the name Arthur Curry, though. I think what I like is how Aquaman looks like what Poseidon or some other ocean deity would look like.

5 Arrow spinoffs I'd like to see

Arrow's been on the air for three seasons and has already spawned one spinoff, The Flash. So why not more? Here's five spinoffs that I think would be worth watching.

(via Arrow & The Flash Wiki)
The Atom: This is the most likely of the five to happen. In fact, there's already talk of a spinoff. We’re seeing Ray working on the suit and he has a stated intent to use it to fight crime, so a spinoff makes sense. Plus, it would capitalize on the success of Marvel’s Iron Man movies and possibly the Ant-Man movie if it doesn’t bomb at the box office. Ray is being portrayed as a technologist in the same vein as Tony Stark after all, and he'll presumably have size-changing powers like his comic book version (white dwarf star matter was mentioned in the episode ("Draw Back Your Bow") and Ant-Man. The difference is that the writers are trying to broaden his abilities beyond mere shrinking. I like technological/scientific superheroes. Their gadgets tend to be awesome.

Thoughts on Leonard Nimoy

Originally posted on my Tumblr, thought I'd repost it here too:

(via Los Angeles Times)
I'm not going to bullshit and claim that TOS was what got me into Star Trek. It was TNG. But I fell head over heels in love with the TOS movies more than the TNG ones. The Wrath of Khan, The Voyage Home, and The Undiscovered Country aren't just my three favorite Trek movies, but three of my all-time favorite movies period. I think The Motion Picture is underrated and under-appreciated. One of the reasons why I love these movies is because of Leonard Nimoy. Spock's mindmeld with V'Ger in TMP is fantastic. His death in TWoK is still hard hitting and not gonna lie, I still get a little teary eyed over it. Nimoy's acting in TVH is what really makes the movie one of the best. Same with TUC.

I think it's also critically important that we look beyond Spock and directly at Leonard Nimoy himself. He was a photographer, a musician (famous for the song “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins), writer, and director. He was also the internet's honorary grandpa. We brought joy to to millions and inspired people to become scientists.

In short, Leonard Nimoy lived long and prospered, now he rests in peace.

Thought on Blogger changing it's policy on adult content next month

So this notice popped up on my dash just now:
Starting March 23, 2015, you won't be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger.
Note: We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit, for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts.

Changes you’ll see to your existing blogs

If your existing blog doesn’t have any sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video on it, you won’t notice any changes.
If your existing blog does have sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video, your blog will be made private after March 23, 2015. No content will be deleted, but private content can only be seen by the owner or admins of the blog and the people who the owner has shared the blog with.
 There's always Tumblr, which doesn't have such a restriction on adult content. What bothers me is what falls under "adult content". Obviously porn does, but what about just a nude picture? Are they going to drop the hammer on a blog if someone posts a picture of a pinup or something and there's a nipple showing? What about butts?

I'm also just curious how Google is planning to enforce this new policy considering how many blogs there are on Blogger.

Jessica Williams as Jon Stewart's successor on The Daily Show 2k15

Stewart's leaving the show later this year and from what I've seen, Jessica Williams has all of the qualities to sit at the desk.

In terms of ridiculously attractive people, Fo Porter is certainly one

Thoughts on the Seth Rollins/Zahra Schreiber nude photo leaks and why it might be revenge porn

For the non-wrestling fans, Seth Rollins is professional wrestler currently working for WWE. Zahra Schreiber works for the same company, but in their development territory, NXT. Well, yesterday, a nude picture of Schreiber appeared on Rollins' Twitter and I believe his Instagram account and were swiftly deleted. At some point after this, nude pictures of Rollins himself appeared on the Twitter of Rollins fiancee, Leighla Schultz. Now whether Schultz posted all these pictures herself or if the accounts were hacked by a third-party, I don't know, but regardless it was wrong. Those pictures were posted without the consent of either Rollins or Schreiber.
