So, yes, for the fucking love of God, movies matter. TV shows matter. Novels matter. They shape the lens through which you see the world. The very fact that you don’t think they matter, that even right now you’re still resisting the idea, is what makes all of this so dangerous to you — you watch movies so you can turn off your brain and let your guard down. But while your guard is down, you’re letting them jack directly into that part of your brain that creates your mythology. If you think about it, it’s an awesome responsibility on the part of the storyteller. And you’re comfortable handing that responsibility over to Michael Bay.
AKA Why Representation Matters.
Newsflash, Everyone: Tom Daley Isn’t Gay
He’s bisexual. And yes, it does make a big difference.
Tom explicitly says in the video that he still “fancies girls,” and he never uses the word “gay,” “homosexual,” or any other synonymous word to describe his sexuality.
The fact that media outlets immediately jump to the conclusion that he’s gay not only contributes to the issue of bisexual erasure, it also misrepresents what Tom Daley said, which was exactly what he wanted to avoid by making the YouTube video in the first place.
So get your facts straight everyone. Tom made an incredibly courageous decision in coming out and he deserves our support and respect.
the animators for this movie had a snowflake generator so that every single snowflake in the movie was different and if you don’t think that’s really punk rock idk what to tell u
shame they couldn’t do that with women’s faces
“The worst part of Borderlands 1 was finding out about T.K.’s death. Nothing was more horrible than walking in to find him murdered like that. If there’s anyone on Pandora that didn’t deserve to die, it was him.”
I have found the BL fandom and I think it’s going to be a problem for me
“Few things in Borderlands 2 were more satisfying to me than killing Dave in Overlook. Fuck Dave.”
A rather interesting aquaponics systems.
"Aquaponics, is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture, (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks), with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrogen-fixing bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system." - Wikipedia
Hollanda’da, yeni teknolojilerin toplum ve kültür ile etkileşimi üzerine bir araştırma laboratuvarı olan Mediamatic, PORT IZMIR 3 Tanıtım Günleri kapsamında geçtiğimiz hafta İzmir’deydi. İki gün süren “Miniponics” isimli atölyede, Mediamatic ekibi katılımcılar ile birlikte pet şişe, halat ve bambudan oluşan akuaponik bir sistem tasarladı. Balık ve sebze ekimini birleştiren sürdürülebilir gıda üretim sistemi olan akuaponik, bitkisel besinler içine balık atıkları dönüştürmek için doğal bakteri döngüsü kullanan bir kapalı dikey sistemdir. Ofisler, evler ve hatta dar balkonlar için uygun olan miniponic enstalasyonları, küçük ölçekte başarılı bir kentsel tarım uygulaması olarak görülebilir. Geleneksel tarım uygulamalarının aksine, miniponic sistemler, su harcamıyor, gübreye ihtiyaç duymuyor ve dikey tasarımı sayesinde çok az yer kaplıyor.
Mediamatic, a Dutch research lab concerned with the influence of new technologies on society and culture, visited Izmir last week in the context of PORT IZMIR 3 Triennial. Presenting a two day workshop on “Miniponics”, Mediamatics introduced an aquaponic installation consisting of little more than a PET bottle, rope and some bamboo. Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines the cultivation of fish and vegetables. It is a closed vertical system that utilizes natural bacteria cycles to convert fish waste into vegetable nutrients. Suitable for offices, for living rooms and for the narrow balconies, miniponic installations are likely to be the best way to produce food in the city. Unlike traditional agriculture, miniponics wastes no water, doesn’t need any fertilizer and its vertical design takes up very little space.
Check out this nifty little Aquaponics set up
wooah! what a cool lil intro to aquaponics set up! and it’s actually kind of appealing unlike 99.99% of the aquaponic systems I’ve seen!
