Sad but true.
If every religious person thought like he does I’d ignore the fact they believe in imaginary beings.
As many of you have probably heard by now, Cosmos is coming back to television. FOX has just announced that, sometime in 2014, Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, will hit the airwaves. This time, the series will be hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, working with original creators Ann Druyan and Steven Soter with Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy fame producing. While MacFarlane may seem like an odd fit, he is actually a personal friend of Ann Druyan, a childhood fan of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, and an advocate of space travel. He also personally provided the funding to have 800 boxes of Sagan’s notes and letters preserved in the Library of Congress. It was through MacFarlane’s clout with FOX Network that Druyan was able to meet the network heads and get the series approved.
The aim of the show, much like the original series, will be to introduce a general audience to the wonders of science. Tyson has stated that his intention is not to teach textbook science, which won’t stick with many people after the show, but to present science in a way that has meaning and that can influence the audience’s conduct in their everyday life. And, rest assured, he has confirmed that “vehicles of storytelling” in the same vein as Sagan’s Spaceship of the Imagination will be used.

John Cho (x)
yo my heart is racing at the guts it takes to say something like this knowing full well what could happen. damn!!!!
John Cho has become my favorite fucking actor ever……
John has been growing bolder and bolder as of late. I’m loving the fuck out of this man as of late!
But can you imagine? This may be the result of all the fuckass racist bullshit he’s had to put up with in the industry and especially probably while filming the movie.
And don’t think he probably ain’t catch that segment of Zoe’s mess saying “color doesn’t exist” and that “people are pink”. I bet he side-eyed the fuck out of that too.

The Amazing Velvet Mace’s Genius Diagram about why some fanfiction stories are crazy popular while others, which may be technically better, are not so popular.
The original post is here, and I think it should be considered pan-fandom required reading. I bow to her genius. Everyone study this diagram and internalize it.
(writerkho: This can also apply to regular books as well. Not just fanfiction.)
[A mayan (I think) themed scene of a woman sitting on a carved stone chair using a tablet computer next to a jaguar and little jungle cat. In background are quetzals, stepped pyramids, and skyscrapers]
I love the inclusion of modern technology into the scene. It’s wonderful.
Yes, this is exactly what I’m trying to do with secret project number one.
Yes, perfect. Good.

This is a thing that I’ve been dwelling on: the alternative development of aesthetics.
The short and sweet version is that we tend to associate certain patterns of clothing, decoration, and ritual with different kinds of behavior. It’s a worldwide thing, and mostly unconscious. Men around the world wear European suits when they’re doing business, unless they have a particular reason not to. Facial tattoos are for ‘primitive’ tribes and members of Western countercultures. Essentially the same furniture and building styles are seen throughout the wealthy parts of the world, and showing the different methods used by other cultures is meant to show how primitive they are.
This is all, of course, horseshit. Art, fashion, motifs—they’re all just the window-dressing of a culture, and say little about how advanced or worthwhile it is. The prevalence of European styles in architecture and clothing isn’t because they’re just better than the rest of the world’s styles, it’s because European culturally brutalized the rest of the world and other cultures had to change to blend in.
What if things had turned out differently? What if some culture had stood as another example of what could be? What if more and more advanced technology had been molded into those alternate aesthetics? What might the world have seen?
(Slightly tangentally: This is why I’m okay with Zecora in MLP. Her aesthetic is indicative that there are cultures in that world that haven’t been homogenized by imperialism. That seems like an excellent thing.)
