Ok… THAT’S clever!
How a blind girl sees the world. Very cute video.
How precious c:
;A; so precious <333
So everything in this video is freaking amazing. The art style works well with how something unfamiliar becomes familiar as more contact is made with an object. Also, just listen to the audio throughout. They bring out the sound a little more than normal making it easier to understand how the girl sees. Pretty freaking cool.
“This guy reading the newspaper on the subway is Keanu Reeves.
He is from a problematic family. His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a stripper. His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads.
He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby. Since then Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids.
He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. He said: ‘I live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?’
One of his best friends died by overdose, he was River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s brother). Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again.
His younger sister had leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 70% of his gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.
In one of his birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer some of the cake.
He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy clothes.
When they asked him about ‘Sad Keanu’, he replied: ‘You need to be happy to live, I don’t.’”
Keanu, I have undying respect for you. Please continue to be my spirit animal.
The strength he has is just purely incredible.
He deserves so much love and respect.
He’s also producing a fantastic documentary about the end of the film era where he interviewed shit tuns of Hollywood directors for very interesting debates.
I’m one of those people who are convinced Keanu Reeves picked bad materials and movies to be in recently, but it’s not him, especially. I loved some of his old movies, and I wish he was in more stuff. Seriously.
I mentioned in my last post that my creative stuffs are taking a turn. My tendonitis is redeveloping in my right wrist making it hard to draw and play guitar. I think this is largely due to my internship and working long(er) at a computer. To treat that, I’m looking into an ergonomic keyboard. I believe I’ve found a good one for about $40, so now I just have to last to the next pay check. I also am looking at the basics of creating chiptune as a way to make music without totaling my hand. There’s more to this than just my wrist, though. I’m having trouble enjoying drawing, at least to the level I enjoy playing guitar. As much as I hate to type this, may not come to fruition. Between the two music is the priority, and if I can only have one, I’m taking music. I’ll keep you posted.
I wanted to apologize for not posting anything (other than reblogs) for the past month-ish. Life has been changing a bit for me and tumbling has hit the back burner. I bagged a full-time internship at a web development firm a few weeks ago, my roommates have moved out, one of those roommates got married, and I’ve been dealing with some emotional bullshit lately. I’ll talk about some of this in more detail as the week goes on, as well as talk about where some of my projects such as drawing and music are going. Stay tuned, and thanx for sticking with me.
I want to get a Weeping Angel statue. Then I want to put somewhere in a residential area, where a statue probably shouldn’t be (like on someone’s lawn). Then I want to periodically move it when no one is around. Hiding it behind shrubbery, but then placing it in the middle of a cul-de-sac for the night, and moving it before morning, or putting it right up next to someone’s windows, etc…
I’m not entirely sure why I want to do this. I just think it would be fun…
This does sound fun.
How to Live with Introverts, explained and illustrated perfectly by Schroeder Veidt !
Hug with permission, folks. That’s the lesson here today.
But everything else is entirely true as well.
I appreciate this as one of the few ‘introvert guides’ that doesn’t make us sound like delicate animals or special little woobie babies who will shatter upon too much human contact. I especially hate it when they make extraverts sound like giant irritating attention whores, because they are also just people who have particular needs like anyone else. Their needs might not coincide with the needs of introverts, but that does not make either party inherently wrong or shameful!
Though I can socialize and enjoy parties with the best of them, I do get very hissy and drained if I’m not able to spend the majority of my time alone. This does not make me a special snowflake! It actually makes me pretty normal, relative to the rest of the people who spend a lot of time on the internet or working on artsy things at home.
Sorry for grousing. I guess I just get really sick of things like this because it’s so easy for them to be incredibly condescending to one or both parties, but this particular example is probably one of the best I’ve seen. On behalf of my extravert friends, I do sort of resent the ‘giving/taking’ analogy, since I doubt any of them would honestly perceive that they are ‘taking’ energy from other people. They’re helping feed the energy too, not just absorbing it— they’re just dishing it out from a much larger pot. Everyone gives in a proper social interaction, and if someone is only taking, they’re a bad friend.
