George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

i’m unreasonably freaked out and disturbed by these

Is this in some kind of uncanny valley?? It’s like an uncanny Communist march or something.

And for some reason I can’t help but imagine these things eternally striding across a barren, lifeless world.

These were my main sources [x] [x] but I used information from various websites that I lost track of. I know there are more crises  going on in the world so please feel free to add your own commentary to this post. If you disagree with any of the information show me your sources and I’ll edit it. 


What’s going on in Burma with the persecution of the Muslim community by the Buddhist majority does not imo receive adequate attention; I am glad to see it being discussed here. What’s really sad is that the doctor who was foremost in the fight against the ebola outbreak has now contracted the virus. :((

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Sorry to be anonymous (lurker, doesn't have an account). But not matter what, I needed to tell you how much I love your art. ♡ I'm an artist myself, same age, and of your work I admire the correctly drawn anatomy & how real the interactions behave between your characters. Could a request be possible? My suggestion is a bit embarrassing but what about a 6996 (25x23) -deep- kiss? -shot-

Again, thank you for your kind words. And I’m sorry it took so long but I really have no idea how to draw kisses properly. In the end I only managed to do a messy sketch. -shoots herself- I’ve used reference but it didn’t help much. :;(∩´﹏`∩);:


You should all go check out Rhianna Howard Photography! All of the photos she posts are taken by herself. She’s only 17 and takes breathtaking pictures like the ones above of Vance Creek, Washington. Her work deserves more exposure so go check out her blog!
