My headcanon has a mixed-race Cecil covered in scars instead of the fandom pressured tattoos and third eye which he’s not described with at all in the show because he lives in Night Vale. There’s rabid dogs, pterodactyls, and killer librarians in this town. He’s also wearing a shirt with a collar & tie printed on it since Night Vale is too hot and messy for fancy suits: It rains animal carcasses and grey ooze spurts out of clocks. Whether that’s a kilt or a skirt is up to interpretation.

The bottom are just some practice sketches of different Cecil interpretations from other fans and cosplayers~

Personally, I have always thought of Cecil as a very clean-cut sort of 40s radio guy. Maybe even a little sepia-toned and static-y around the edges when he’s stressed or panicked. The general fandom interpretation of him as this dude with all the vaguely occult-looking tattoos and the third eye really threw me when I first saw it. It’s still sort of weird to me—I mean, it’s a cool idea and a totally valid interpretation, but very far from my own.

(My mental version of Cecil does not have scars, because my mental version of Cecil is difficult to seriously injure and impossible to kill, owing to being some kind of embodiment of Radio. I theorize that before Carlos came along, Cecil often spent the time between shows sitting in front of the mic, waiting. It’s not like he needs food or water or a place to sleep. They’re just nice bonuses.)

The smile that enchanted Cecil Baldwin!
My friend mariareadsalot, who is a big fan of scifi/fantasy literature and Welcome to Night Vale, said she imagined Carlos as an Afro-Latino babe, which is cute because she is herself an Afro-Latina babe. I’m gonna try to draw her Cecil, too, because it’s way cute.

Head-canon status: achieved in a single picture.

The Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer

We get a lot of asks about this series, so clearly we need to keep awareness raising.  Pick them up, they’re grand!

Nancy is a terrific writer. I can’t think why these would be other than great.

Note to self.

A notice to parents

greaternightvalemedicalcommunity:

Please stop leaving your children outside the dog park fence in hopes that they will turn into hooded figures. If you would like a sulky, mysterious being that you can never appease and never, ever hope to understand, just wait a few years. They will be teenagers soon enough.

Fuck that. Fuck that right now. I’m going to tell the generation of so called men something right this second. It’s an amazing mystery of the universe. It’s how to never get friendzoned.

This is how you do it.

You come to the terms that the friendzone doesn’t exist and that the most important thing in the universe is not your dick.

Why is the Nobel Prize in Literature almost always given to a novelist, never a scientist? Why should we prefer our literature to be about things that didn’t happen? Wouldn’t, say, Steven Pinker be a good candidate for the literature prize?

Richard Dawkins in this interview [New York Times]

(via thenoobyorker)

Why should we prefer our food to be made out of things that aren’t computers. Isn’t it about time we began eating computers? Why can’t more dogs talk? And of the dogs that do talk, why are so many of them fictional? Shouldn’t, say, Steven Pinker’s dog begin talking? Throw off the yoke of superstition.

Furthermore, why can’t I have a car that has wheels that roll sideways? And why can’t Iron Man beat Goku? What if, say, Steven Pinker designed Tony Stark’s armor? What if I could fly? What if teeth were made of pineapples? Makes you think. 

(via century-of-clods)

Just a stab in the dark here, but maybe because there’s three Nobel Prizes for science: chemistry, physics, and medicine.

Seriously, things that aren’t science have social, and even educational value, and can enrich our views and understanding of reality.  

Shut up, Dawkins, you pretentious ass, you’re making us all look stupid.
