bucky speaks in english most of the time but when he gets truly upset he reverts back to rapid fire russian and he can’t switch back to english until he’s calm again

instead of feeling shut out and useless, steve starts learning russian

I can't see how not)  #(except when it happens she's not getting any sort of flashy mind symbol on screen??????)  #(so do those only appear when it's like a relevant action or something)  #(ugggggh UGGGGGGGGGH UGGGGGGGGGGGHHGHGHGH)  #(homestuck's the worst I just want a worldbuilding book written by hussie so I can write this god damn roleplaying game already)

Legends of Jazz Portraits by Garth Glazier

To capture that dimly lit, smoke-choked atmosphere of the 40’s and 50’s-era clubs is to feel the jazz in your bloodstream and tap your toes to the meter. For his portrait series, Garth gathered a certified Super Team of Earth’s Mightiest Jazz Heroes: Fitzgerald! Thelonious! Gillepsie! Coltrane! Assemble!

For two days, we surveyed the fan presence for the narrative podcast Welcome to Night Vale here on tumblr. Commonplace Books’ horror/mystery series follows the broadcasts of Cecil Palmer, a radio host in the town of Night Vale. Cecil’s dynamic with his boyfriend Carlos is a frequent feature on the show and has been a point of contention with homophobic bloggers on the site before, but now it seems WTNV’s diverse cast and progressive stance has attracted a new kind of scumbag attitude. 

So, is the WTNV fandom community racist? 
We asked the tags if they thought the community that formed around Night Vale had turned unwelcoming towards people of color and interpretations of figures on the show as characters of color — and, specifically, if they’d seen accepted white supremacist and overtly racist attitudes in what should be safe fan spaces. For a show as progressive and accepting as Night Vale is, the results were upsetting.

"We talk a lot about media not living up to the expectations of its audience — but in the case of WTNV, can the fans of a show fail to live up the expectations of its creators?”
^This is serious. This is the image the fandom shows to the community at large; the writing has always been on the wall, and now it’s even more clear.  Is this really the image we want to put forth?  Actions need to be taken.

Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
