Okay, Bay Area mixies, time to pony up: 7-year-old Baylor Fredrickson of Albany, CA needs a bone marrow transplant, but his German-Japanese background makes it hard to find a match. Click through to the article for upcoming registry drives and get swabbed if you can.
"It’s a simple story of love, trust, family, and zombies."
Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes' zombie short “Danger Word”, based on their novel Devil’s Wake, is now online!
lol for all I know this has made the rounds already but I’ve been busy OK?!
Players will control young female protagonist Nuna and her arctic fox as they try to rescue her homeland from an endless blizzard. Upper One calls itself the first indigenous-owned video game developer and publisher in the U.S. and Never Alone's inspiration comes from the centuries-old stories and folklore of the Iñupiat people native to the region. Priced at $15, it comes out this fall for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
This game makes me so happy. This is what indie developers have an opportunity to create and what, in all likelihood, AAA companies will be forever blind to. Keep an eye on this one, guys it looks brilliant
This is EVERYTHING
Haha, I saw this on Chelsea Vowel’s Twitter and was literally about to post about it…Scooped by Tumblr!

“Every time we have a movie that takes place in the future with one person of colour I’m like, “Really? We made it through all that but we couldn’t quite make it to space?” Or you’re watching a fantasy movie that didn’t have room for people of colour – I’d like to ride a damn dragon! You know what I mean?”

I find a purposeless universe to be far more inspiring and far less bleak, because it means that the meaning in our lives is the meaning we create. It is not imposed on us by some other entity…The meaning in my life is the meaning I make, and the quality of my life is the quality of my actions.
Seeing myself as an insignificant being in a purposeless universe inspires me to say: I am here for this little bit of time, I should make the most of my existence and make meaning in my life by the meaning of my actions. I find it far more humble to believe that than to assume that the universe was made for me.”

sorry to bust your bubble but he creeps on women, has been accused of sexual assault, is definitely buddy-buddy with a notorious sex offender, how’s that search for meaning going larry
THERE IS SOMETHING IN BOTH OF MY EYES.
This was a great way to end the first part of the new Cosmos series.
