Love and Tolerate

I study psychology and Japanese. I do a lot of projects, mostly for conventions in the Seattle area like GeekGirlCon, EverfreeNW and Emerald City ComiCon. My guilty pleasures are Josei anime and manga, robots, glitter, yarn and snow. Not in that order. I am really interested in cross cultural psychology and minority issues within geek culture. This is just my space on tumblr but you can also find me at http://www.multicoloredglitterandrobots.com

With E3 a mere 3 weeks away, it’s finally time for the news flow to step up and deliver. After the latest feature in Weekly Shonen Jump, fans began bouncing off the walls in undiluted excitement, trying to predict what would come next. However, what did come next was hardly what anyone had forseen, and that was a voice actor confirmation.
Gilbert Gottfried, well known for his stand-up performance as Iago the parrot from Disney’s Aladdin, just revealed via Twitter that he is recording lines for the loud-mouthed parrot for another Kingdom Hearts title! 
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix is slated to release worldwide sometime this year, there is no doubt that he is referring to this long-awaited remaster.
What new lines do you think he could be recording? How far along could they be until the game’s release? And when do you suppose it even will release? Tell us your thoughts in our forums!

Excuse me while I run around screaming!

Grandma’s Experiences Leave a Mark on Your GenesYour ancestors’ lousy childhoods or excellent adventures might change your personality, bequeathing anxiety or resilience by altering the epigenetic expressions of genes in the brain.

Darwin and Freud walk into a bar. Two alcoholic mice — a mother and her son — sit on two bar stools, lapping gin from two thimbles.
The mother mouse looks up and says, “Hey, geniuses, tell me how my son got into this sorry state.”
“Bad inheritance,” says Darwin.
“Bad mothering,” says Freud.
For over a hundred years, those two views — nature or nurture, biology or psychology — offered opposing explanations for how behaviors develop and persist, not only within a single individual but across generations.
And then, in 1992, two young scientists following in Freud’s and Darwin’s footsteps actually did walk into a bar. And by the time they walked out, a few beers later, they had begun to forge a revolutionary new synthesis of how life experiences could directly affect your genes — and not only your own life experiences, but those of your mother’s, grandmother’s and beyond.
The bar was in Madrid, where the Cajal Institute, Spain’s oldest academic center for the study of neurobiology, was holding an international meeting. Moshe Szyf, a molecular biologist and geneticist at McGill University in Montreal, had never studied psychology or neurology, but he had been talked into attending by a colleague who thought his work might have some application. Likewise, Michael Meaney, a McGill neurobiologist, had been talked into attending by the same colleague, who thought Meaney’s research into animal models of maternal neglect might benefit from Szyf’s perspective.

Spending a lot of time online, I occasionally see various brands in the midst of a social media meltdown. Originally, I would just grab the proverbial popcorn and watch them burn the situation to the ground, but since I became responsible for five Twitter accounts with a combined reach of about…

Yeah, see. This. This is NOT what you are supposed to do.
