There is a line in Gods and Monsters, a favorite film of mine in which I play James Whale, the English film director out there in Hollywood in the 30’s and he’s given a line by Christopher Bram: 'Making movies is the most wonderful thing in the world. Working with friends, entertaining people.' (x)
tbh, i find the emergence of the concept of demisexuality very interesting, and i’m partial to thinking it’s a symptom of hypersexualized patriarchal culture that demands full sexual availability of women. wanting to develop an emotional bond before having sex is actually a very common and even normative thing, yet nowadays women seem to be under so much pressure to have casual sex that they strongly identify with demisexuality to justify the limits of their sexual comfort zone.
i wonder how the idea that not wanting to have sex with people you don’t know well needs its own label might be connected with the “sex-positive” movement and its ideas of “sexual empowerment”. we’ve conceptualized being sexual (as opposed to “half-sexual”) in very strict terms and reached a point where certain sexual behaviours, such as casual sex, are not just seen as normal and accepted but actually positioned as a required part of “full” sexuality, and by doing that we’ve abnormalized not wanting to have sex with people you don’t know well, which is alarming because there is an immense pressure on women to be sexually available to men.
one of the worst moments in life is probably when you’re in a room full of people and you look around and see them all talking and laughing and all of sudden you feel so sad and lonely that you can even feel a physical pain in your chest because you realize that they all belong to someone and they all have someone who belongs to them and you don’t, you’re just kind of there
Today the Department of Awesome Natural Wonders takes us to Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi, Japan, home to the country’s largest great wisteria. This colossal blooming vine is 144 years old and covers an area measuring 1,990 square meters (half an acre). Its numerous heavy branches are held up by a vast network of steel supports. In the spring countless racemes of pink and purple flowers bloom to form a vibrant canopy that practically brushes the heads of the park’s many visitors. If you’re planning a visit, the best time to behold this awesomely enchanting sight is from late April to mid May.

Here is my take on the color yellow.
This picture is 7 pictures put together:
2 pictures for me. Since I was the one holding the remote for the camera shutter, I had to pose myself with the remote in each hand so I could use the ones with the open hand.
And 5 pictures for the sheets. I bought this twin flat sheet at a thrift store for $3 specifically for this photograph. It only covered so much space, so I had to position it on one side, flick it in the wind, then repeat on the other side. I then composited those “flicks” together into one big sheet of movement.
A lot of photographs were taken for this, but having my dad as a peanut gallery/watch dog/audience member, I managed to get what I needed and leave within an hour. Not to mention the entire day I waited for this perfect sunset light.
I hope you like this as much as I do.
Free is the bird without a cage.
