I have art friends

radioactivemongoose:

spirited away isn’t about a whorehouse and totoro isn’t about death everyone shut the frick up

hayao miyazaki makes movies for kids (girls in particular) to teach them that there are things in life worth living for. is that not good enough for you

like interpret art however you want but this “let’s make art edgier by adding entry-level darkness to it” trend is wearing me thin

rory literally ran after this guy and asked for a photo because of his tshirt omfg the kid didn’t know we were crying with laughter at him

did it ever occur to you that a dude in his 20s at an anime convention chasing after a 13 year old wearing a meme shirt to take a picture with him and make fun of him is exponentially more pathetic than a 13 year old wearing a meme shirt?

Betty and Me # 16 (1968) 

Describe your ideal first date.

I love that Archie’s expression isn’t one of disgust, or even frustration. It’s just a classic, “huh, I’ll be damned. well, alright,” such as you might make when discovering that the drop-off box outside a library was closed and you had to walk inside to return your books. it’s just a little confusing, but not troubling. 
also reggie is absolutely tugging the guy in the middle, who’s tugging the guy on the right, who isn’t tugging anybody because he’s too self-conscious (note shirt worn in the water)

In the early years of space flight, both Russians and Americans used pencils in space. Unfortunately, pencil lead is made of graphite, a highly conductive material. Snapped graphite leads and particles in zero gravity are hugely problematic, as they will get sucked into the air ventilation or electronic equipment, easily causing shorts or fires in the pure oxygen environment of a capsule.

After the fire in Apollo 1 which killed all the astronauts on board, NASA required a writing instrument that wasn’t a fire hazard. Fisher spent over a million dollars (of his own money) creating a pressurized ball point pen, which NASA bought at $2.95 each. The Russian space program also switched over from pencils shortly after.

40 years later snide morons on the internet still snigger about it, because snide morons on the internet never know what they are talking about.

Shout out to @wontbetelevised for the post that brought this to my attention. I’m not reblogging because I’ll be damned if I post something that links my blog to all those people who posted the edited picture on the right and proceeded to bask in their own false superiority at the expense of the mythical Welfare Queen.
But yeah, you can imagine the anti-Black, mutual mind-masturbation sessions that erupted in response to the second image.
Oh, look at the original image again. What’s that on her left hand? On the ring finger? WHAT????? A married Black woman? They exist?

THE AMAZING SKETCHBOOKS OF GUILLERMO DEL TORO

For all of the difficulty that Guillermo del Toro has experienced in getting his projects off the ground, his imagination is famously restless and unquenchable. A gifted artist who’s as capable of bringing his visions to life with a pencil as he is with a camera, del Toro is known to first begin creating his film worlds in the pages of his sketchbooks (del Toro once left his “Pan’s Labyrinth” notes in the back seat of a cab, and the loss might have killed the movie if not for the kind efforts of the cab driver to return the book). While most of the notes and illustrations that fill del Toro’s sketchbooks may never be available to the public, many pages have made their way to the web, and many more can be found in various books and on the Criterion Collection DVDs of “Cronos” and “The Devil’s Backbone.” Here, we’ve collected the images that we could find, a modest collection that nevertheless provides a thrilling glimpse into the mind of an extraordinary storyteller.
