OUR FRUITIMALS KICKSTARTER IS LIVE! 

The Fruitimals were our flagship designs and continue to be our most popular creations!  Throughout our travels, fans have constantly requested that we make them in to plush toys!

Earlier this year we contacted Gann Memorials, a 15 year veteran in the plush manufacturing industry,  to help us produce Orange Fox, Eggplantypus, and Cherry Octopus!

Each plush toy is made from a super soft vibrant minky fur, is a huggable 12 inches long, and features expertly embroidered details. Which makes these toys safe for children of all ages.

The prototypes have met our exacting standards and are fully approved. With your help we can give the go ahead and get these guys produced!

Unfortunately, plush production is a very expensive process.  Funding this project is an undertaking that we hope our friends, fans, and the Kickstarter community can help us achieve. Reaching all our goals could mean great things for our little homegrown business. Every little bit helps!

You have no idea how much your support means to us! So, please donate and share if you can!<3<3  

Much Love- Team Squid


Hey guys! My buddy, Nancy is starting her first kickstarter for her adorable plush series and needs your help. These guys are super adorable and all the backer awards for this project are great! Lets signal boost the heck out of this!

I’ll just sit here and look at everyone post their updated models. No big… No big at all.

GOD FUCKING DAMNIT.

The Lazer Team shoot is literally, literally the one week I was praying it wouldn’t be. Like, the single, fucking week in the next 3 months that I was like “just don’t be this, and everything will be fine”. Midterms week, and the week of BlizzCon.

Excuse me while I cry and try and figure out how much of this quarter I can really afford to skip.

"Just a heads up: the new social disorder features a 'don't drop the soap in prison' joke at about 3:28, a part where Aaron has to use the word 'holocaust' in every sentence and a part where Aaron has to pretend to think he is black"

feministroosterteeth:

Welp. Thank you for the warning. Might want to avoid that one altogether, folks.

The drop the soap line is where I stopped the video. Then I read in the comments about the holocaust card, and apparently another card where someone has to pretend they’re a married man. So.. yeah. Just all around seemed in bad taste this time.

As embarrassing as the survey one was, it was in a location where it’s very socially acceptable to flee if uncomfortable, while the girls seem to be going about this as good sports with allowing themselves to be used in the video— its still really… shitty. 

The ‘don’t drop the soap’ joke by the way, was delivered while he looked mournfully at the table. Using a rape joke as a pity pick-up line was just really gross.

Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.

All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.

Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.

It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.

With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.

How to handle the language barrier

German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.

What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.

This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a shit about your wellbeing in any way.

I know German. I have an EU citizenship. Let’s go.

Done deal. Let’s.

Shit. I’m learning German. Immediately.

So, if I ever have spawn, I was already pretty set in that I’d make sure I gave them the opportunity to learn multiple languages during that window when it’s supposed to be easier. So if that happens— I’m definitely making sure German is one of those languages.

Another flag burns.#shawshooting

holy shit. no noo no no no i do NOT care the cause, i don’t CARE what the supreme court says you do NOT fucking burn the flag what the FUCK is your problem. disrespectful bags of shit oh my GOD

That thing where a certain group of people are more outraged over a piece of polysynthetic fiber than the horrific loss of Black life in this country.

You still don’t burn a fucking flag.

Both acts are despicable. Not equally, but they are both despicable.

Gonna have to disagree. Those two acts are not on the same level. In fact, burning a flag is so incredibly far away from being ‘despicable’ in this scenario. Burning a flag is considered a symbol of distress. Which the citizens of St. Louis are clearly in.

You know what would be despicable? Burning a flag at the funeral of someone who served in the military.

You know what isn’t despicable. Burning the flag of a country that you are a citizen of that is not coming to save you from injustice, murder and corruption.

Also, gotta love the phrasing from the earlier entry “I don’t care what the cause, I don’t care what the supreme court says”. Would you like me to point out the key words in that sentence? Too bad. I’m going to. "I don’t care." 

Exactly, you don’t care about the loss of human life and the rage that it has rightfully sparked in these protests. Instead you’d rather call them ‘bags of shit’ for burning cloth while murderers walk the streets spraying them with mace, and another murderer with a badge gets to walk away. Probably with a paycheck for his troubles.

There are better ways to show disgust than to be barbaric and burn the flag of the country you live in (which is illegal I’m p sure).

I also did say that the two were not equal problems.

But you don’t. Burn. You flag.

To be honest, this got a lot of people who were ignoring the problem talking about it. So I think this did exactly what they wanted. There is a law against it in Missouri but Congress overruled it as unconstitutional.

But guess what is supposed to be a crime that hasn’t been overruled by Congress that people shitting their pants about the flag aren’t talking about? Cops murdering people because they fucking feel like it.

And again, name calling the victims is super classy.

But of course never mind that, what are the better approved by flag worshiper ways to show your disgust? Could it be protest? Because guess what they’re already doing that and it’s not working.

An Open Letter to Achievement Hunter

achievementhunting-archangel:

To Anybody From AH Who May See This:

This letter, signed by all who reblog, is written in appreciation for all that you do. We as fans may never completely understand everything that happens when you go to work everyday, but we do understand that your jobs involve so much more than just playing video games.

We really want to thank you for last night/ yesterday (Oct. 8) because you put in well over 12 hours just so you could maintain a regular release schedule while some of you are working on “Lazer Team”. Just by what was shared on Twitter, you guys looked absolutely exhausted from a full day of filming, and we know that it must be difficult to film and commentate for 12+ hours straight.

This is just a thank you for putting in the time and effort that it takes to produce the content that you do. This is also a reminder that 99% of us are not going to be upset if something comes out late because y’all are busy. You guys need to sleep and eat and spend time with your families/significant others. Take care of yourselves before catering to us.

With much love and appreciation,

The Tumblr AH Community
