Most new users don't bother reading our rules. Here's the one that is ignored almost immediately upon signup: DO NOT ASK FOR FANEDIT LINKS PUBLICLY. First, read the FAQ. Seriously. What you want is there. You can also send a message to the editor. If that doesn't work THEN post in the Trade & Request forum. Anywhere else and it will be deleted and an infraction will be issued.
If this is your first time here please read our FAQ and Rules pages. They have some useful information that will get us all off on the right foot. More details on our policies, especially our Own the Source rule are available here. If you do not understand any of these rules send a private message to one of our staff for further details.

Adobe has released some amazing new tools in Photoshop CC 2021 (and I'll post about them in more depth elsewhere later after getting the chance to test them properly myself). But amazing as these new tools might be, they can be misused.
When the unbelievable polarization in politics gets me down (in the USA and elsewhere), I watch a few minutes of Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator. Poking fun at bullies is more powerful than early-morning coffee: a great reminder that you're not alone and not insane, and an upbeat way to hurt the bullies in their ego.
Of interest to fans of David Fincher's excellent film Zodiac - the killer's most notorious cipher has been solved after 51 years, thanks to computing, attention to detail, and some good old-fashioned human problem solving:
Unfortunately, it doesn't offer any new clues, and is more of the same crap we've already heard from him. Still, the solving process is pretty nifty.
Actually a great little documentary, not all that focused on the movie Blade, but more on Horror comic books and how Marvel started to get into making movies. Pretty awesome seeing a young-ish Stan Lee (though he honestly looked about in his 50s even back when he was 30.)
Pretty great video if you're into Golden Age comics/serial characters or just a super nerd (before the last few minutes devolve into a Shazam film promo). But if you're a super-duper nerd like me and already knew the whole story of the various Captain Marvels, you might want to skip past the legal battle drama in the middle. @"bionicbob" this might be up your alley...
