hoothootmotherf-ckers said: So the movie Lucy appears to be completely based on the idea that humans only use ten percent of our brains. However, isn't that completely inaccurate?

edwardspoonhands:

It is indeed. It’s super interesting that it’s such a sticky myth…apparently we feel underutilized.

The first time I saw that trailer I was like, “except that is completely inaccurate.”
The movie might still be fun though.

Incorrect. That’s “Envious.”

"Jealous" is having strong feelings about keeping the things you already have.

Creepy Murder-y Cupids. #louvre #paris

I believe those are cherubs. Not necessarily Cupids. There is only one Cupid. Though he is often portrayed as a cherub. (Or are cherubs based on Cupid? Not sure on that history)

"The Ghost of Actions Performed Long Ago"

While watching @theartassignment video “Walk On It” I was struck by the quote above.

It seemed to me that if art can simply be an artist doing something and that the resulting work can be seen as nothing more than the record of the artist’s actions then anything that shows a record of what the artist did, whether it was meant to or not, can be art.

In college/university I majored in theatre. While there I held down a work study position in the theatre scene shop. One thing I discovered a talent for was scene painting. Using paint to create backdrops on flat surfaces or create false texture on three dimensional ones or anything else involving paint meant to help in creating illusion for the theatre.

Throughout my time there, whether doing my job or executing projects for classes, if there was any chance of getting messy I almost ALWAYS wore the same outfit. Sad to say the original jeans I wore are gone but there is a new pair of shorts and the same old t-shirt.

Paint splattered and ripped these clothes hold memories of hundreds if not thousands of hours. Every spec and spot has a story. Every rip a testament to my time and effort. I loved it there. I often wish I could go back.

Sometimes I still paint, primarily backdrops for Vacation Bible School (which I sorely need to get started on this year) and my new set of paint clothes (these shorts but a new shirt) will continue to document my work.

Alton Brown teaches you How to Tie a Bow Tie - YouTube →

This is AMAZING! He ties it a bit differently than I have ever seen. With the final bit going in the front when all other instructions I have seen finish in the back. I’ll have to try it his way sometime.

And it’s all part of his new YouTube show Eat Smart.

Fyi. I make bow ties for sale over at. Http://RedsBeauxs.etsy.com/ check it out.

[social sandbox] John Green and community building →

socialmediadesk:

Hi everyone,

John Green is a Y.A. author who has written some of my favorite books. He also has a very loyal band of followers online who call themselves Nerdfighters. It’s one of the best Internet communities and reminds me a lot of people who love NPR. Read this:

Nerdfighters weren’t…

"…Nerdfighters. It’s one of the best Internet communities and reminds me a lot of people who love NPR"

Well that may be because a lot of Nerdfighters ARE people who love NPR.

I for one, am such a person.
