PLEASE PASS THIS ON! 

I want to make sure every one knows about this and what it can do to your pets 

this is what has happened to my sisters cat after she wore a hartz flea and tick collar and now has a burn like wound on her neck. please pass this on and do not buy hartz’s products! they use poison in their products pets have died because of this!!

http://www.hartzvictims.org/

Yes this is my cat she is doing fine at the moment but I’m so sorry for the people who’s pets are not so lucky

oh my god

PLEASE REBLOG THIS PEOPLE

save pets!

Hartz is the worse EVER! my aunt used it and it ended up killing two of her cats. only one survived but she had the worse skin condition. NEVER USE HARTZ

BETTER REBLOG THISS!!!

Guys this is an actual issue. We had Hartz collars for my dog and he kept having seizures. one seizure he had on the stairs and fell backwards down the stairs, and he also stop breathing from these seizures. When I found out about Hartz causing this I took it off my dog and he hasn’t had a seizure since. And he used to have one at least every few months. DON’T USE HARTZ.

Yeah, sorry for the picture, folks, but please, y’all gotta know: don’t use Hartz products.  They shouldn’t even be sold.  Shit’s evil.

I checked this when I was looking into flea stuff for Eo, and it’s a huge problem. I don’t know how Hartz is still in this business.

i hope everyone realizes now and will learn from this: but networks often orchestrate the failures of shows (particularly your favorite animated cartoons) because someone on high said so. Korra has a lot of flaws that I take issue with but its move from actually being broadcast to being available online is part of a longer series of fuckups that are very intentional including multiple leaks, changing release dates, and lack of advertising or promotion.

GL:TAS failed because an exec said so - and no fan on earth was going to be able to stop it. LOK is going to fail because Nick is going to make it fail, not because I didn’t watch the show and have my “numbers” counted. People keep saying Nick is going to lose millions on Korra. True— Nick will lose millions they already spent on what has already been produced. In other words, they’re losing expected and required losses for production. By pulling Korra from the air, they’re preventing further loss, not losing even more money. They may believe they cannot recoup what was already spent.

They may have decided they did not want to continue spending more money on promoting and airing the show and not be able to get that money back. Some exec may have literally just sneezed and said “Eh, I don’t like this show, put it online.” It’s not about viewers. It’s not about fans or fandoms. It’s not about awards, original content, or merchandise. It is what the execs want, and that’s it.

Once you realize this you’ll realize that all mass media is orchestrated by a select group of people — why it’s so hard to include diversity in cartoons, why things that are cult-classics or fan favorites are doomed to fail from the beginning and why you should not look at Nick, Disney, or Cartoon Network with anything other than suspicion because none of these companies are required to ensure the success of all of their shows, and they are completely willing to let their shows fail if they decide they don’t want to back it anymore.

And not just cartoons.

Star Trek: The Original Series got done wrong and cancelled/pulled because studio execs DIDN’T UNDERSTAND IT. They didn’t understand who could be watching it or what it was doing - this was in the days before demographics was a thing (that was then twisted and refocused on yt ppl 18-35 usually male).

The fans kept Trek alive enough for TNG, DS9 and even Voyager (mostly) but even there, once again execs got a hold of it - who didn’t understand it. ENTERPRISE kinda showed that. Just like how JJ Abrams didn’t ‘get’ TOS or TNG and has done ‘space action movies’ that reveal his real goal was always Star Wars.

We’re all just eyeballs for advertising. And they pre-decide whose eyeballs are important and worth something, and who counts cause they’ll be given nothing else and how that loss isn’t really loss.

Book publishers do the same.

There’s a REASON that the more plausible and possible it is, to do a webseries, or have an e-press etc, the more (for example) Corp action against Net Neutrality becomes a thing, and other companies (Sony, Netflix etc…) are trying to rise up and BE the ‘new old men at the top’. But the plan is NEVER to let there be a diversification in storytelling and distribution - that’s not the point of a monopoly.

And Capitalism is the real-life game of Monopoly. You only ‘win’ if you own and control it ALL.

yuuup. i actually thought of mentioning ST:TOS but just used cartoon examples for the post. it’s still completely relevant though and is one of the few fan-driven revivals that worked, along with that Veronica Mars movie. 

media is exclusive and the power is not centralized in our favor.

media is meant to maintain a chosen status quo 

media is an oligopoly.

Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT cancelled, 2) the remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.

Thousands of you have been asking to watch this incredible show online, so hopefully this news works in your favor. Mike and Bryan created a breath-taking season for us all…so get ready to watch it all go down!!!

Thanks for being the BEST fans in the industry and see you at Comic-Con.

Yay, more confirmation!

I’m realizing I follow comics I don’t read in the same way that some people keep up with celebrities

"Oh, I hear Wolverine’s dead again.  Wonder how long that will last."

"So…Nightwing’s a secret agent?"

"Looks like Guy Gardner has a beard now.  I don’t like it."

Okay, guys. I meant to go through and make this list yesterday, but as of Tuesday this week, Comixology.com has been hosting a mega Batman sale in celebration of Bruce’s 75th Anniversary. There are a lot of awesome Bat Stories currently available, and you should check them out.

But for people curious about Cassandra Cain, are there any issues to buy?

Never fear, Bat Fans! Here’s a list of Cass-related issues to buy!!

((*Note: Even though Cass has several major appearances throughout the arc, I will not be listing any Batman: War Games or War Crimes issues. On the one hand, you’re missing out on Cass appearances. On the other, you’re not wasting money on garbage.))

Batman: No Man’s Land (Cass’ First Appearances and Origin!)

Batman (1940-2011) #567: “The Mark of Cain, Part 1”
Detective Comics (1937-2011) #734: “The Mark of Cain, Part 2”
Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #120: Cass becomes Batgirl
Batman (1940-2011) #569: Cass’ first mission!

Batman: New Gotham Era (simultaneous with the Puckett run of Batgirl)

Batman (1940-2011) #594: Team-Up with Batman

Batman: Bruce Wayne Murderer?/Fugitive (Cain centered story)

Batman (1940-2011) #600
Batman (1940-2011) #605: Confronting Cain

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (simultaneous with the Horrocks’ run of Batgirl)

Superman/Batman #5: Bat Family and Super Family invade the White House
Detective Comics
(1937-2011) #790: Bruce and Cass on the anniversary of Jason’s death

These are not all of Cass’ appearances — I tried to limit suggestions from issues where she only cameo’d — and some issues that are great for dealing with Cass aren’t always the best for other characters ( Batman: LotDK #120 for Helena, 'Tec #790 for Steph ), but this is a basic list.

My personal suggestions if you’re being picky with your wallet are “The Mark of Cain” storyline (Batman  #567 and
Detective Comics #734), Batman #569, Superman/Batman #5 ( Cass isn’t the main featurette but the interactions for everyone is fantastic ), and Detective Comics #790.

Hope you guys enjoy some Cass during the Bat-cebration!

Okay, did a version with some links edited in, because the Comixology search function apparently sucks. Hope you don’t mind, Rena. (I bought these all for less than $9, for those wondering.)
