Ooh, this lovely gif , The Night Sea — Non Repeating Patterns #1, by the-mitr, reminds me of Chinese traditional paintings of clouds and water

Brilliant about sabotaging oneself

Superb article on women's work as emotional caregivers going unpaid.

“Where’s My Cut?”: On Unpaid Emotional Labor

Housework is not work. Sex work is not work. Emotional work is not work. Why? Because they don’t take effort? No, because women are supposed to provide them uncompensated, out of the goodness of our hearts.

shame, anger, alienation, and other hallmarks of the masculine psyche

Teaching Men to Be Emotionally Honest [NYT]: "By the time many young men do reach college, a deep-seeded* gender stereotype has taken root that feeds into the stories they have heard about themselves as learners. Better to earn your Man Card than to succeed like a girl, all in the name of constantly having to prove an identity to yourself and others."

cool collages
Rembrandt was never shy about showing naked bodies or erotic subjects in a realistic way. In the 1640s he created several scenes of courting couples outdoors, and The Monk in the Cornfield is one of the most sexually charged of these prints. Despite the print’s tiny size, the graphic depiction of an unchaste monk and an enthusiastic milkmaid coupling surreptitiously makes for a powerful sculptural grouping. The etched suggestion of a farmer with a scythe in the background reinforces the temporary nature of their haven in the wheat field and emphasizes the voyeurism of the viewer.

Pretty cakes for Spring! Pastel buttercream works of art.

  1. There are many things that makes this show one of my all time favorites: 1) watch movies online free The intense, noir setting 2) No unwanted random scenes (Everything contributes to the plot) 3) megashare9 Fast paced (the beginning is a little slow but it's very gripping) 4) Del Torro and his direction 5) Great animation and CGI 6) Very believable and rational story line 7) Dark atmosphere and background 8) Apocalypse and survival strategies

    I'm a person that enjoys dark, intense setting with good story line and action I love shows like Death Note (anime), Lost, Game of thrones, the 100, etc losmovies . If you like any of the above mentioned shows or a thrilling, dark themed apocalyptic series, you're going to absolutely love this! People who are asking so many questions right at the beginning of the show and are calling this stupid, are dumb AF. 123 movies Literally everything is explained as the show goes on!

    The first episode is captivating to say the least. zmovies It's a little slow after that, but it picks up pace real quick and from that point on wards it's one crazy ride with some kick-ass characters and a dark, apocalyptic atmosphere.
