D (Dom) R (Robert) E (Eames) A (Arthur/Ariadne) M (Mal) S (Saito)
There’s lots of different theories for why the Inception characters name are as they are. Here are a few of my favourites (but not all meanings etc. may be reliable!
COBB: Dom means ‘Of God’, Mal’s name shares this meaning, possibly linked to them ‘being gods’ in the dreamworld. Cobb’s name also comes from Nolan’s film Following, in which Cobb is a thief who uses his art to steal things so that people would re-examine reality. Cob, meaning spider, is linked to web weaving, also linking him to Ariadne.
MAL: Mal, meaning ‘Of God’ (see COBB). Also means ‘bad’ and in French, ‘sickness’ (the sickness destroyed her, and the sickness of guilt taking over Cobb). ‘Mal’ also creates a ‘shade of badness’ to words, for example, malnourished and malfunction. She creates a shade to Cobb, and is referred as one by him.
EAMES: Meaning ‘Prosperous Protector’. Possibly linked to an ‘Ames Room’, an optical illusion which makes two people standing in a room appear to be of dramatically different sizes. Derived from “eam” meaning uncle. It’s presumed the nickname ‘uncle’ was originally given to a man who played a paternal role to a young niece or nephew following the death of the father. Remind you of any role Eames’ plays in Inception? Also a link to designers of the Eames Lounge Chair. FUN FACT: Eames was the name of a butler Joseph Gordon Levitt makes fun of in an episode of 3rd Rock From The Sun.
ARTHUR: Meaning ‘guardian’, ‘stone, ‘noble’. Possibly linked to Schopenhauer, a philosopher who often talked of dreams: The universe is a dream dreamed by a single dreamer where all the dream characters dream too. Also King Arthur, in which some folklore stated King Arthur never died, but was instead put to an “enchanted sleep”, from which he could awake at any time.
ARIADNE: Meaning ‘most holy’. Linked to Ariadne’s thread: solving a problem through application of logic to all available routes. Comes from the legend of Ariadne, daughter of King Minos. She was in charge of labyrinths and helped Theseus find the way out of the Minotaur’s labyrinth by giving him a sword and a ball of red fleece (notice how much red she wears in the movie?) thread that she was spinning.
FISCHER: The Fisher King, figure in Arthurian legend (see ARTHUR). After being wounded his kingdom suffers, his impotence affecting the fertility of the land and reducing it to a barren wasteland. Similar story depict two ‘Kings’, a father and son, where the wounded father stays in the castle.
YUSUF: Variant of ‘Joseph’, who was famously the dream-prophet.
SAITO: It’s not sure why Saito is called Saito, however, crack out Google! There’s lots of theories about it.
On Monday, during a parliamentary commission hearing to determine if he was a fit for the top court, he was asked whether the death penalty should be applied in cases of rape. His response?
“Consideration needs to be taken thoroughly for the imposition of death penalty for a rapist because in a rape case both the rapist and the victim enjoy it.”

Remember kiddies, just because its on the net, doesn’t make it free. If you think that you can do what you’re doing without consequences, than are you in for a treat!
1. You are breaking the sites rules and terms of agreement (You can be suspended or permanently banned.
2. It’s actually illegal, you you heard right!, ILLEGAL to post art without the artist agreement, and if you’re selling it, my god have mercy on you soul.
3. This kind of behaviour will haunt you for the rest of your life.
Nobody wants to hire a known thief. NOBODY. Art industry or retail or otherwise, that record gonna look even worse when you say ‘Oh it was only for a RPG and everyone was just overreacting’ I can guarantee it’s not. Nobody is gonna care, the only thing they’ll care about, is the theft is in bold print on that record and that they way you handled it was less than desirable.
Just because you can’t physical hold (At least until it’s printed) do not mean it’s not property. Theft is theft. End. Of. Story.
(Reblogging this again; and I might just keep reblogging it until the Earth explodes.
Once upon a time, on my personal blog, I reblogged and added a short rant to a post about tattoo theft. This was not some horrifying case where somebody cut a tattoo off someone’s body, but they did find the image online, take it to their own (considerably lower quality) tattoo parlor and have it redone without the creator’s or the owner’s permission. This is basically the same as art theft online, only worse, because that work is permanent. It can’t be deleted or taken down from a site.
Shortly after posting my rant, I received an angry message, either from the person who stole the work or from one of their friends. They told me that I was being ignorant and stupid and said, and I quote: ‘Don’t you realize that once art is uploaded to the internet, it no longer belongs to you?’
CHEESE AND RICE, SOMEBODY ACTUALLY SAID THAT TO ME.
According to this logic:
- Once you bring a piece of traditional art outside of your house or into a public area, it is no longer yours.
- Once you write a story and post it on your blog it is no longer yours.
- Once you publish a book and other people purchase and read it the text is no longer yours. It belongs to them because they saw it.
- If you say or do anything, that word or action instantly becomes the intellectual property of anybody who feels they are entitled to it for some reason.
This is such incorrect thinking on so many levels. I spent hours on my art. It is mine. I took a photograph. It is mine. I wrote a story. It is mine. You are not entitled to keep it or use it for your own gain simply because I uploaded it to the world wide web -the only place you can put anything where it can be seen these days.
With this attitude you suggest that artists should either be happy to have their basic rights of ownership trampled, or give up on their future success entirely, since the only option you give them to prevent their art being stolen is to not present it to society at all.
So everybody, please reblog messages like this about art theft as often as you can. We are people. We deserve to be able to share our work without the risk of it being stolen or posted elsewhere without our knowledge or permission. We have the right to have everybody know who exactly did that awesome picture, whenever they see it anywhere on the internet. We have the right to be respected.)

(Content warning for video: sexualized violence, self-mutilation, sexual assault, rape)
Hey it’s another video! (Thank you to everybody who submitted this to me.) This one is by MMO Attack contributor Joe Plork and is about hyper-sexualizing in video games, and how this is actually a really immature and superficial take on “sex” because actual sex, sexuality and sexual encounters are not actually often in games, and it’s just “hey look at the boobs while she beats somebody up or kills somebody or is killed. Look at the pornface while she’s shooting a gun or being headbutted!” and what not. It also goes to something that was said in the comments on this blog recently, that when people say “sex sells” about this stuff, that’s actually not true, because no sex is actually being sold. We’re selling sexualization of women, but generally, not actual sex OR sexuality.
As Jimquisition talked about in a previous video, developers have been told by publishers to actually not have their female characters have straight sexual relationships because it’ll turn off the straight male audience. We want women in games to be sexualized, but not sexual. We want female characters in porn poses, with orgasm faces, curved spines indicating lordosis behavior, skin showing, battle bikinis, angles that show butts, close ups that show boobs, etc, while she’s fighting, or getting beaten up, or captured, or falling, or etc etc etc, but not actually having sex. And we end up with stuff that just ends up being ridiculous with the battle bikinis, Ed Benes butt shots where it looks like everything is being drawn from the perspective of a gnome, and women who look like they’re orgasming or posing when they’re supposed to be injured or dead. And even when they’re drawing stuff that’s meant to be sexy, like a woman in a bikini, there’s still often issues like breaking her spine because you just have to get as many sexy bits into the scene as possible. It’s like everything is drawn as if the audience or creator might never see another sexy woman again, and we better make sure that every panel there’s a chance to get boobs and butt, we do it. And it hurts storytelling and characterization.
Plus, as my friend always says: if everything is sexualized, then nobody is actually sexual. If all female characters are always swaying their hips, in boobs and butt poses, in revealing outfits, with the same faces, expressions, lipstick, eyeliner, etc, whether they’re fighting, eating, or injured, then it’s really hard to convey that any of the female characters are different, especially if you want to convey that some of them are sexual and others aren’t. There’s nothing wrong with a character being sexual, but often they aren’t actually being sexual, they’re just being sexualized while doing non-sexual things.
It’s like a Michael Bay move: overusing CGI, explosions, rapid scene cuts, etc, doesn’t create an effective action movie, it creates a giant mess that’s hard to follow, takes away from telling a story, and can take viewers out of the movie. Just like use of action can be gratuitous or effective, so can use of sexualization, and sex. Having everything explode all the time and huge CGI battles may make a movie “action packed”, but not necessarily a good movie, having battle bikinis and boobs and butt fighting poses may make a comic or video game “sexualized”, but does not necessarily make it sexy or sexual, and can be just as distracting and harmful to storytelling as overusing CGI or explosions.
