Artist Kevin Weir Creates Ghostly Animated GIFs Using Archival Photos from the Library of Congress [Sponsor]

I was featured on colossal today, very exciting.

Woah this is amazing. 

This might be my favorite thing ever for oh so many reasons.

Look at how creepy number 3 is! So wonderful.

I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear.  ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me?  So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes.  ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me.  I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me.  Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind.  ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles.  Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all.  Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”

James McNeill Whistler was known as a caustic wit and man-about-town in his adopted home of London. The new documentary James McNeill Whistler & The Case for Beauty takes a close look at the life of this 19th-Century artist.

Tune in TONIGHT (9/12) on PBS.

I’ve been mostly absent for a couple of weeks and sadly I’ll probably be mostly absent for a couple more. It’s nothing bad - life is just busy at the moment and Tumblr is getting the short end of the stick.

However, the queue abides.

A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.

These are the Doctor Who shoes I painted! Inspired by the 11th Doctor and the 10th Doctor.

I made them to wear for my birthday, which is the day before Season 8 starts. They’re my party shoes for the day of, too!
