solitairespades asked: I like reading about all the things you have planned for Platinum Black. They make me really interested in the story you want to tell. Without giving away too much, can I ask you what sort of conflicts the characters might experience in the story?
Daggett is “Platinum”, the colloquial term for regenerators because of their metallic colouring. Their bodies can be rendered down to a substance called Platinum Black, used (among other things) to create alloys out of cheap easily obtainable metals that replicate the qualities of higher quality metals and alloys. Artificially producing this platinum black has stumped the scientific community, so it can only be obtained by harvesting the soft tissues, bones, scales, and horns of Platinum creatures. On paper regenerators are revered due to the belief that they’re “made of the same stuff as the gods”, but in practice they have to constantly be vigilant for poachers looking to gut them.
Daggett starts the story after having put a life of impulsive anger behind him, living in the fallout of the bad decisions he made with a lot of debt owed to important shadowy figures. I feel like his personality is sort of like… if the big angry punchy macho lone-wolf-with-a-chip-on-his-shoulder type stepped back and realized he was the leading cause of his own misery, and that even if your anger is justifiable you’re going to ruin your life if you just feed it and feel sorry for yourself and lash out at everyone who “deserves it”.
Anyway, the main story is broken up into three arcs, the first revolves around science and industry, the second is more to do with supernatural elements and the mythology of the island, and the third involves the larger world outside of the island and impending Armageddon.

Japanese calligrapher Tsuneko Kumagai (1893~1986) at work with her cat.
Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.
Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart.
The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.
So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.
lazyringo asked: help i need coffee puns
so there was a farmer who had a cow named Coffee. The cow was really old so the farmer got a new baby cow and gave it the same name so that when Coffee died, he’d still have a cow named Coffee.
Then one day the farmer wanted to build a new pen for the baby cow so he told his son to go bring him Coffee Jr. But the son brought back the old cow instead.
The farmer said “No! I wanted de calf Coffee!”
Am I interested? I don’t know. I mean, we’ll see. I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we’re not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries.
