So the girl that took this picture was interviewed.
E. Ortiz: For those reading this and learning about the truth for the first time, what would you like to say to them?
Courtney: I personally enjoyed the threads of photos mocking me. It seemed to make everyone laugh and I know I laughed at it too. I guess I’m glad they could enjoy my awkward teenage photo.
Though I guess I would like to say, I was fairly annoyed by the comic made about me saying that I couldn’t be a true gamer because I was wearing make-up and didn’t have greasy hair. It’s a rather odd assumption that one can’t enjoy both cleanliness and gaming. Some people seemed pretty fired up about this fact.
I was honestly baffled by how many assumptions everyone could come up with about who I was based off of one photo. Apparently I’m a slutty bitch who borrows her brother’s Xbox to take photos in an attempt to seduce the men of the internet by feigning interest in gaming. It’s interesting how little I knew about myself.
now I want to find the original post so I can see more funny photos of people eating their controllers.
you, lady, handled this situation gracefully
“My boyfriend at the time was a huge PS3 fan and would take any chance he could to rip on me for having an XBOX. It was a constant source of teasing and it eventually boiled down to me making a joke that I liked my XBOX more than I liked him. The very unfortunate result of me trying to take a photo of said joke turned into the widely hated photo of me that everyone is so familiar with.” In the interview.
I hate people. That is definitely a gamer reason to take such a photo and people never think about context. :/
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I WANT TO SPREAD THIS ACROSS THE INTERNET
I feel so bad for this girl. But it seems like she’s taking it like a champ, good for her. Screw everyone else who’s ever called her a ~fake gamer like all other girl gamers~ based on ONE PHOTO.
Artist Appreciation: Phil Noto’s Hank Pym’s Photo Archive.
This is one of my favorite projects by an artist. Not only is each of his works beautifully detailed, but Noto also seems to turn these fictional superheroes into real life people. I love the use of actual dates in order to show us a glimpse into the real lives of these characters. I feel like I would see this “photographs” in old issues of TIME Magazine or something. Fantastic.
“It was better not to put up any resistance until he could figure out what to do.”
“From time to time, this confusion is exposed.”
“But I pulled on my coat, slipped into my shoes and headed for the door, which I closed behind us with my heart beating.”

“Pam feeds it husks.”
“Grier was amused.”
My name’s not Grier and I’m not fucking a clown.
“Impressed, I took the bottle she offered and sipped it myself; a bout of coughing ensued, but another sip of the liquor seemed to be the remedy.”
The nearest book happened to be TAFWVG
“We just thought that it was great that folks invited us over, and they thought it was great that here was this little girl with a big voice.”
“Never a blinkin’ bit of manfless have we had for long enough,” said a second.
“i can dispense then with artificial stimulant.”
The nearest book to me is the script to Grease, so we ALL know how that’s going to go.
“KENICKIE. What a yo-yo! Make one little joke and she goes all tutti-fruitti!”

“Wolfgang?!” Aria almost spit out a bite of bread. “As in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?”
Aya’s exhaustion turned dizzy-making for a moment.
Oooh dizzy-making (Extras by Scott Westerfield)
“Sex education consists of teaching children that the human body is a shameful vessel that should be veiled from the eyes of others at all times.”
If it counts a partial sentence as the first, then it would be “Boys and girls are forbidden to date, or even flirt, before marriage.”
These are from the book Under the Banner of Heaven (which I am reading for my Abnormal Psych class.)
“I went to my bedroom and followed his advice.”
“You really are my favorite cousin,” I told her.
“Any creature with 3 or more HP-dice than the mage that placed the spell can break through a locked opening in one turn, but it will lock itself again if someone closes it within the duration of the spell.”
My nearest book turned out to be the original D&D first edition red book. Page 35 has the description of the lock spell…
omfg so my little cousin (she’s 8) loves superheroes and we were in party city and she was browsing through the boys costumes because the girls side didn’t have the ones she wanted and then an employee tells her that she’s in the wrong side so she grabs a batman mask and says in the lowest voice possible for her age, “don’t question batman”
