Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay.

What the… WHAAAAAAT!?

Wow this is amazing.

I can barely draw decent stick figures with normal mediums. Shows you what practice and dedication can get you, eh

Why I’m Worried that Season 5 Will be Terrible:

how-much-farther-to-go:

It’s honestly not the issue of running out of book material that concerns me. D&D have two books, a good chunk of The Winds of Winter manuscript and knowledge of the series finale to go on until then. It’s narrative cohesion that I’m worried about. Let me explain:

image

While the books have so many POV’s, three narratives in particular are its heart and soul: Bran, Arya and Sansa. Their narratives have many parallels, but their perspectives are fundamentally different: One is northern/magical, another is “on the ground” and another is mostly political. They are identity narratives.

image

Three others, Jon, Dany and Tyrion serve as the hero stories. They are much more external. Their character archs of are essentially about heroes coming into their own. And dragons.

The POV’s of the numerous secondary characters support these six core narratives and revolve around them.  Sam becomes a true brother of the Night’s Watch (just like Jon) in the same way that Theon fights regain his identity as a “Greyjoy” just as Arya and Sansa are fighting to remember that they are “Stark”.

D&D have ripped that narrative structure to shreds.

They straight up don’t care about Arya and Bran. Arya’s observance of injustice and her personality as a whole really, Bran’s spirituality and historical awareness, and Tyrion’s less savory character traits: these things probably bored them to death while reading the books. I can just hear D&D’s complaints now:

“Yeah we get, it sucks you can’t walk, but you got a magic wolf who kicks ass so who cares?”

“Just go and start assassin training already.”

"Can we have get back to Tyrion being witty already?

“It was cooler when Jon was just a badass ranger.”

Tyrion and Jon are obviously their favorites, and it’s plain to see why. They’re white, they’re male, they make wise-cracks and they’re the underdog heroes. One of them even kicks ass with a sword. But Tyrion’s story has been watered down to keep him as an uncomplicated “good guy.”

And so where does that leave us? Jaime and Cercei and have huge roles in AFFC, but one has been reduced to a bland good guy and D&D hate the other intensely, no matter how interesting her story is. Will D&D even care about the Greyjoys, or Asha? Where is Brienne going if there’s no Lady Stoneheart? The drama around Myrcella, honestly, always felt like a sideshow. Mayhaps the drama of the Sand Snakes can draw carry the weight.

The narratives in AFFC and ADWD were incredibly frayed and scattered. The strength of the core characters, the Stark children most of all, is what keeps the story powerful and meaningful, and will probably be center stage in TWOW. With a brilliant mind like GRRM straining under the task, I have little faith that D&D have what it takes.

TL;DR, I’m very worried that season five will suck.

"

Afro-Futurism is a diaspora intellectual and artistic movement that turns to science, technology, and science fiction to speculate on black possibilities in the future. Afro-Surrealism is about the present. There is no need for tomorrow’s-tongue speculation about the future. Concentration camps, bombed-out cities, famines, and enforced sterilization have already happened. To the Afro-Surrealist, the Tasers are here. The Four Horsemen rode through too long ago to recall. What is the future? The future has been around so long it is now the past.

Afro-Surrealists expose this from a “future-past” called RIGHT NOW.

"In the end, the question is not really about the pros and cons of trigger words. The questions are around, what are the organizing practices and strategies for building movements that recognize that settler colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy and heteropatriarchy have not left us unscathed? … How do we create critical intellectual spaces that recognize that intellectual work is not disembodied and without material effect?"

"But it would have been impossible to cut Chris Evans’s hands off. I mean, he’s a hundred percent muscle and I’m a hundred percent fat, even though we’re both men… You just have to admire him when he wears that form fitting spandex in Captain America.

Actually, it was really hard to hide his muscles, to make him look like he had been in the back of the train for 17 years, and we had to hide him under costumes. Inside the coat, we had to take out the lining and remove the sleeves of the sweater so his muscles looked like the bulk of the sweater. So he was just wearing a vest under that coat the entire movie. It was just his naked arms inside that coat."

My friend knows someone who keeps all her money in a  hollow dildo. If you don’t think that’s genius, just imagine a robber stealing from a teenage girl’s room. Is he going to look in the dildo? Is he even going to want to touch the dildo?? No. A hollow dildo is safer than any safe or lock. 

Be safe, kids. Keep your money in a dildo.
