The costume was made to be at a nighttime party outdoors - so that all the black I was wearing would disappear into the background.

Selections from ‘Rituals’, by Noorann Matties

Forced to examine ourselves in ways many normally avoid, Rituals as a project sought to capture the moment in which we our lives become devoid of distraction and we become intimately aware of ourselves. By photographing people’s personal beauty rituals I attempted to capture this awareness, this intimacy that occurs only when one is forced to examine their own body, the most basic thing that is theirs, and build upon it.

imagine Tonks and Lupin in bed, and he’s the little spoon and he turns round to kiss her only to find she’s metamorphasized her face into Snape’s and he screams and she laughs so hard she falls out the bed

I literally think about this post all the time.

Professional sculptor Stefanie Rocknak beat out 265 other artists from 42 states and 13 countries to create a sculpture honoring author and poet Edgar Allan Poe that will be displayed in Boston, Poe’s birthplace. A five-member artist selection committee decided on Rocknak’s stunning work that shows Poe with a suitcase in hand and a raven in front of him.

No wonder she won, holy butts, look at that majestic creature.

Giraffe-taur drops a quarter: the crappy comic.

People were always in awe of him. Oh, you’re so tall! and how lucky that you got to be part giraffe!  were things he heard on a nearly daily basis, especially from the people who had gotten ponies or sheep for their animal halves. 

Of course, those people were never around when he brained himself on a doorway (or rather, on every doorway, even the special ‘hybrid friendly’ ones).They never saw him struggling to arrange himself at a movie theatre without someone behind him crying foul. And they certainly weren’t around now, to give him a helping hand as his tiny silver salvation rolled under the vending machine.

"Okay," he muttered, fanning out his forelegs like he’s done a thousand times. "I can do this… c’mon, quarter, hit a wad of gum and be right at the front…" His fingers fumbled under the first two inches of the metal behemoth. Crumbs and dirt, but no quarter. He couldn’t get low enough.

He glared at his animal half, taking a few seconds to pull his forelegs back upright before dropping to his front knees. He twisted himself, and he could see the quarter… all the way at the back. He would need a drafthorse team to lift the machine before he could get to it. “You’re kidding me…”

He sat there for a while, staring mournfully at the last twenty-five cents he needed, a dollar already inside the machine. He didn’t even have the will to get up and push the money return button. Instead, he folded his hind legs and laid down fully on his side, one hand resting against the machine’s plastic leg, so much tinier than his own.

He could reach the stuff on the highest shelves in Walmart and get a frisbee off a roof without needing a ladder. He could cross the street in four measly steps.

But heaven help him if he got clumsy when he desperately wanted a Snickers.

there were actually tons of women and girls on board ships during the age of sail and it’s really cool history that no one!!! ever!!! talks about!!! 
like captains of merchant ships used to bring their wives and children on board for long voyages all the time (and of course there were plenty of well known female pirate ship captains, and women cross-dressing as men, and prostitutes that more people seem to know of)
there’s actually a really amazing story of one woman, Mary Ann Patten who was the wife of the captain of this ship called Neptune’s Car. Captain Patten decided that he wanted her onboard with him and she was super about this and learned all about navigation and sailing and everything. so this one voyage they’re going around the tip of south america when her husband gets sick and is bed ridden with a fever right as the ship sails into one of the worst storms any of the crew had ever seen and it looks like they might lose the ship or have to stop
so you know who takes over??? the first mate??? 
no.
MARY
she took over the whole crew and sailed that ship through freezing water and pack ice and had it coasting smoothly into the san francisco harbour like it was nothing. and she did this all at age 19. while pregnant.
at one point the first mate tried to get the crew to mutiny against her but they all rallied with her and told him to shut the heck up because she obv knew what she was doing.
there’s a great book about women in the age of sail called ‘female tars’ by suzanne stark that i cannot recommend enough and has way more amazing stories and insights about the myriad roles women and girls played aboard ship during that time period.
(sorry i totally didn’t mean to hijack your post i love all of your art and this is gorgeous i just got over excited sorry sorry sorry)

I illustrated this text post by roboticdreams because it’s just too cute.

IM SO GLAD

"When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking–the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with.

The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”

All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.

And the mother took the boy into her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because if violence begins in the nursery one can raise children into violence.”

- Astrid Lindgren, author of Pippi Longstocking, 1978 Peace Prize Acceptance Speech (via falldownlikefire)

Why is it that evil villains always find poison to inject into their victims like just literally fill the syringe with air and just stick the needle between their toes or something. It’ll mimic a heart attack and the victim will die pretty quick and NO ONE WILL ASK MANY QUESTIONS BECAUSE IT’LL LOOK LIKE A HEART ATTACK

first of all how do you know this information i feel like the government doesnt want you to know that
