Oh tumblr, I’ve missed you so. Trying to run a charity while attending college part-time and managing a full-time job presses into my precious tumblr-browsing time! XD I did want to let you guys know, however, that if you don’t have tickets for Emerald City ComiCon and want to go - I’m running a giveaway on the Comic Book Characters for Causes Facebook page. Two Saturday tickets, plus a super cute Funko ECCC Exclusive Phoenix variant figurine! :D If you want in on this action, hit the link above and click the “giveaway” tab on the Facebook page, or just follow this mobile-friendly link: http://tinyurl.com/mgjl6yn xoxo!

To see more photos and videos of the bridge, explore the Henderson Wave location page on Instagram.
At 83 meters (274 feet) long and 36 meters (118 feet) above Henderson Road in Singapore, the Henderson Wave is known not only for being the highest pedestrian and cycle bridge in the country, but also for its unique wave-like architecture. Designed by Adams Kara Taylor, a London-based structural and civil engineering consultant firm, the bridge stretches out in a U-shape and sustains seven half-domes made of steel ribs alternating above and below one side of the bridge’s wooden deck.
The bridge acts as a pathway between two parks in a mountainous area, and locals enjoy strolling along the bridge or relaxing on the benches inside the domes. At night, the domes emit a soft glow formed by LED lighting that accent the curves of the structure.
Ever since Burning Man first sold out in 2011, there has been a scarcity mentality around tickets. Although the governing body of the festival has tried to mitigate scalping and push for a higher attendee limit, the reality is that as the event’s popularity continues to grow, some of us simply won’t get to go to Burning Man. So what’s a would-be Burner to do? Well, there are several alternatives to “That Thing In The Desert.” Some (Nowhere, AfrikaBurn) are “regionals,” officially recognized by the Burning Man Project. Others (Secret Garden Party, What the Festival) were inspired by their founders’ trips to the desert. Considering that the Individual Ticket Sale was over in 45 minutes this year, you may want to put some of these 11 festivals on a back…burner.
