Photos of fireflies by Tsuneaki Hiramatsu

On hot, hazy summer nights, fireflies take centre stage as they fly through the night air, punctuating the darkness with flecks of yellow light.

But Japanese photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu captured their beauty in a whole new light, using time-lapse photography. (2012/7/12)

Real life magic.


Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.




Portrait of Julian by Alejandro Maestre.

“Julián is a good friend who I deeply respect; he is a multidisciplinary and complete artist. He is, at the same time, film director, sculptor, painter, photographer and writer. He suggested time ago the idea of doing a portrait of him that could describe his capacity of creating and his constant search to understand his body and spirit. All these made me think about his work and helped me to develop the idea of this work.

“Therefore, with this photograph series I intend to show an artist fighting to get to know and shape himself and turn into a better human being.”

omg this is so BEAUTIFULLLL


Today my inbox was graced by a particularly stubborn and “not racistanon, prompting this comic.

Because whenever anyone seriously tries to argue that POC fans (which for the record, I’m white) and anyone drawing POC Homestucks and advocating for more representation of people of color in fandom and media are the ones inserting race/racism into the discussion—

y’know, racism, that system by which, among other things, mostly-arbitrary categories of biological characteristics and cultural stereotypes are used to justify gross social, economic, and political inequality to the benefit of those in power, and which kind of exists fucking everywhere and doesn’t need help getting inserted into almost every aspect of people’s lives—

I always have to wonder if we’re even reading the same comic.  Intentional analogy or not, that thematic ship has gone and fucking sailed. 

And as promised, both messages anon sent me after the last ask I answered are included here for general mockery.  Rest assured, they are as enlightened on issues of citizenship and how other people self-identify as they are on race as a whole:

Good job anon what a convincing argument you’ve crafted.

I know that I usually keep Homestuck off of here, because I know I have followers who don’t enjoy it, but I was bored so I took a midi of Eridan’s Theme (by Radiation) and turned it into a full orchestral piece.  Enjoy.

Cute ^_^

Holy fuck this is amazing.
