So, anniversary date with Chris this evening included @whippetwhippetwhippet bringing over cookies for us. She attempted to leave them on the doorstep and run away, but Chris chased her so we got to have cuddles.
She is the actual cutest. I can’t even.
Plus I got to have cuddles with @wings_humming too.
My polyfamily is the best.
Scientists successfully generate gasoline out of thin air
Breakthrough technology takes carbon, hydrogen and oxygen from CO2 and water in the air to create methanol and then converts it into gasoline.
Zoe Holmes and Kath Read embrace the ‘F’ word: Fat and proud
DISCRIMINATION on the basis of sex, gender, race and religion is illegal, so why do we continue to judge people on their appearance?
Zoe Holmes is fat. Kath Read is fat. Very fat, even.
They are also intelligent, articulate, funny and successful, each with friends and families they love and who love them.
Drinking tea and preparing for work in her quirky, inner-city art deco unit, the stylish Holmes, 26, slips on earrings as she recounts a recent trip to New York where she saw nine stage shows in two weeks. A good exchange rate meant the musical theatre tragic could also indulge her other love: clothes.
Quietly spoken and personable, Holmes spent two years teaching English in Japan before returning to Brisbane where she works in administration at the University of Queensland and blogs about “fatshion” part-time.
Holmes got to know the heavily-tattooed Read, 39 - a self-described bolshy, punk librarian who has a black tutu (more like a “four-four”, she laughs) in her wardrobe and says pink is her natural hair colour - as participants in a Griffith University study on attitudes towards fat people.
Photos of them shopping, riding bicycles, doing yoga, putting on make-up, working and generally going about their daily lives have circulated nationally in a new image library created for mass publication.
Together with an exhibition by Queensland College of Art photographer Isaac Brown planned for October, stockybodies.com aims to replace the generic “headless fatties” images that negatively represent obese people.
LOOK AT THESE RAD LADIES THAT I KNOW! :D :D :D
Using a simple household material, salt, as his primary medium, Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto creates fantastical blizzards and seascapes that touch upon conceptual frontiers. Since Hi-Fructose correspondent Nathan Spoor interviewed Yamamoto in 2009, the artist has had several solo shows that yielded delicate, pristine works that are entrancing to look at with their repetitive and meticulous details. Many of Yamamoto’s works have a labyrinthine structure that the artist describes as “nearly reachable, yet not quite,” alluding to the idea of trying to recall past experiences and coming to terms with the fleeting nature of memory. Take a look at some of Yamamoto’s latest works from his shows at the Bellevue Arts Museum, Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the Hakone Open-Air Museum.
Holy fuck that is beautiful and amazing.
This image was taken at the Chinese National Gymnastics Training Centre in Beijing back in November 2009, after training had finished for the day. Some of the gymnasts featured will be competing in the upcoming London Olympics. What makes it stand out is that it was captured all in one take.
I first gave the girls a picture of the poses I wanted and each girl chose one. Next, I got them framed up and then set up the camera. It only took about ten minutes and three takes and we were done. The girls were so accurate in terms of their timing when performing their moves, that the process of coordinating everyone and ensuring no one overlapped was amazingly straight-forward. — Adam Pretty

Daaaaaaayum, that is cool.
I love the idea of “monsters” doing cute or normal person stuff. I’m sick of the cutesy thing with a bloody cleaver, I want more Jason Voorhees reading the Sunday Comics and making toast.
Mary I believe this may be relevant to your interests.
"We don’t lift weights in order to look hot, especially for the likes of men like that. What makes them think that we even WANT them to find us attractive? If you do, thanks very much, we’re flattered. But if you don’t, why do you really need to voice this opinion in the first place, and what makes you think we actually give a toss that you, personally, do not find us attractive? What do you want us to do? Shall we stop weightlifting, amend our diet in order to completely get rid of our ‘manly’ muscles, and become housewives in the sheer hope that one day you will look more favourably upon us and we might actually have a shot with you?! Cause you are clearly the kindest, most attractive type of man to grace the earth with your presence."
Fuck Yeah This Lady.
