ahahhahaha what the fuck is wrong here is the siren damaged or something.  I’ve heard this exact siren before but never all creepy like this

skeletorren you’ll dig this

now let me tell you about a game called siren. When the siren sounds, you’re fucked.


I live in Chicago, and I can honestly say this is accurate. It’s a combination of being near multiple sirens, and the sound waves bouncing off the buildings and alley ways. The grid work Chicago is built on can play a lot of tricks with sound and wind. You can often hear police sirens several blocks away and never know which direction they’re coming from. You can also be walking in a pleasant breeze, then step into a cross walk and almost get blown over.

Cleaning the room again.

I always have to do it in quadrants. I did the bookshelf, headboard, and side table yesterday. Just spent the whole morning on the closet. Next is the dresser. Then the bedding and floor.

I’ve already got a solid stack of items going to goodwill though. Which is always nice.

Dash Con says they have official dates for the Indianapolis Convention Center. But that hall has literally 1.3 million square feet of space. Even if they only take up a small portion of the building, they’re still in over their heads.

These people couldn’t even handle/afford the 146,000 square feet of the Schaumburg convention center. And they still want to limit daily badges to 500.

I’m almost tempted to call the convention center and ask if they’ve actually entered into an agreement with these folks. The Indianapolis Convention Center is not small potatoes. There’s an entire district built around it, and several hotels directly connected to the building.

I just can’t see this as anything close to being true.

freezecooper asked: How many Bad Dragon dildos could you buy for $17k?


For 17,000 dollars you could buy 170 dragon dildos or 85 extra large Chance the Stallion dragon dildos with the flared base, but a relationship with Jesus is priceless please go to church

If this isn’t one of the best responses to the dashcon kerfuffle, I don’t know what is.

My sister and I had two choices for Night Vale live. Either see them 5 minutes away at Dash Con, or drive an hour up to milwaukee.

My sister and I have been going to cons for a long time, and we knew right away that for a first-time social media gathering, Dash Con was way too expensive. I understand why they went with a nicer, more expensive establishment; but it was too much all at once for a first-time go. So we chose to go to Milwaukee instead.

Today I got the tweet to the tumblr post about WTNV having to cancel their show after they arrived at the venue and were informed, after discussions, that they couldn’t be paid for their travel and performance.

So, Lucky us, my sister and I will get to see them on Monday as Scheduled. We’ll be in the center, third row.
