The important thing is, I'm meeting new people

Basically a nerd, basically a film blog.

INTJ

Catharsis is my favorite feeling.

  • Donate money to have those arrested in Ferguson released on bail. These people belong on the streets, especially at a time like this.
  • Send a note of condolence to the family of Michael Brown. Let’s not forget the tragedy that started this.
  • Donate to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. This is an official fundraiser run by the Brown family’s lawyers. They are going through so much, lets make sure at the very least it isn’t a financial burden.
  • Help get people on the ground. There are activists and reporters who want to do their part and get to Ferguson. Donate and get them there. I am so far aware of Zellie Imani, Zak Jemmott, and JR Valrey (a reporter for SF Bay View).
  • Donate to the Ferguson Youth Initiative.The children of this community deserve better than to be gunned down. Make sure they get that in the future.
  • Feed the children of Ferguson. Many children in America rely on school to get their meals and thanks to the civil unrest caused by the police, the children of Ferguson have been without school since Monday. These people want to make sure that doesn’t mean anyone is going hungry.
  • Find a National Moment of Silence in your area. If one doesn’t exist, start one. Share this experience with others. Solidarity is important.
  • Keep awareness up. Not just among the like-minded people on tumblr, this is something everyone needs to be aware of.
  • Spread accurate information. There is a lot of distortion going on here and spreading every piece of information as it is reported only makes that worse. First and foremost make sure you are listening carefully, then share what is important and relevant.

If you are aware of any good causes or ways to help that I have missed, please reblog and add them.

 faig ahmeds Embroidered Art 

When you think of traditional carpets from Azerbaijan, the thought of contemporary art does not quickly spring to mind… but these beautiful, and modern works will change that. Faiq Ahmed, a native of the Eurasian nation, has taken his countries old-school art form and brought it beautifully into the current era, deconstructing the ancient process of weaving and adapting it to todays contemporary art forms.

Oh….Oh, my.

AMAZING

Steve McQueen - Deadpan (1997)

Turner Prize-winning artist Steve McQueen—now best known for his feature films, Hunger, Shame, and 12 Years a Slave—put himself in the line of fire in Deadpan (1997), a restaging of Buster Keaton’s falling house gag from Steamboat Bill Jr. McQueen does more than remake the stunt; his presence as a black man transforms the work into a commentary on race relations and the precariousness of the black experience.

This just happened in Seattle. A group of nonviolent protestors in support of Palestine were being harassed by a WHITE MAN, this fucking mall cop comes out and maces and detains a black man WITH NO AFFILIATION TOWARDS EITHER GROUP. AN INNOCENT BLACK MAN JUST WALKING INTO THE WESTLAKE MALL. The protestors are actively telling the mall cop that he MACED THE WRONG GUY, that the black man did nothing wrong, and he still handcuffs him and DENIES him water to flush out his eyes being offered by the protestors. I’m so disgusted. I have been to this area and mall many times in my life and I no longer feel safe going. I hope to god he presses charges and that this scum sucking shitstain loses his job. I’m so scared right now. I’m so fucking scared. Source here, but let the video speak for itself.

Video: Dance: Ten; Looks: Three - A Steve Rogers Tribute 

Description: A (short) autobiographical look at Steve Roger’s life, told through the lens of A Chorus Line. This video is equal parts parody, good natured objectification, and genuine Steve Rogers appreciation. I was walking home from work when this song came on shuffle, and almost automatically I pictured a Steve music video set to it.  The rest, unfortunately, is history.  You’re welcome, and I apologize.

Schlecky Silberstein found this incredible pair of snakeskin boots that featuring cobra heads mounted on the toes, their hoods expanded in threatening display. Unfortunately we don’t know who created such fantastic footwear (please let us know if you do), nor can we make up our minds if they belong on the feet of a supervillain or superhero, but either way they’re strangely awesome.

I expect Quentin Tarantino had something to do with these.

Making My Life Better By Binge Watching: Going Deep with David Rees

File under: Fun facts see also: genuine enthusiasm for science

There’s pretty much nothing I don’t love about this show. John Hodgman had been talking it up for weeks, but out of laziness I didn’t go out of my way to watch it until tonight. I put it on intending to watch one episode and I ended up binge watching the whole season so far.

Here’s a list of things I love about Going Deep…

  • David Rees. This show wouldn’t work without him and his sincere excitement about what he’s learning. 
  • The love for the unsung experts of everyday stuff.
  • The everyday science facts. It perfectly feeds my love of annoying people with fun facts.
  • The filming and editing style. It’s snappy and fun and full of silly little details.
  • Seeing the “seams” of the show. I absolutely love that they use the blooper style moments and often show/involve the crew. It’s a spot on choice for a how to style show.
  • The Wes Andersonesque title cards that introduce the experts.
  • The on-the-spot songs (someone get David Rees & Elliott Kalan together in an impromptu musical)
  • The humor. I laugh out loud at least 3 times per episode.
  • The high fives! So many high fives.

Do yourself a favor and watch this show.


DON’T JUST TAKE IT FROM ME: take it from a normal person! Watch GOING DEEP tonight at 10PM!

I love everything about this show too. Similarly put it off out of laziness, but it’s too good. Get on it!

Glass sculptures by Sydney-based artist Ben Young

“I work with 2D shapes and have to figure out how to translate that into a 3D finished product. Sometimes my start point changes dramatically as shapes can be limited – I can’t create any internal right angles – so I have to find a way to layer the glass to create certain shapes.” (text from brokenliquid.com)
