We can’t stop staring at these breathtakingly dramatic wire sculptures by Staffordshire, England-based sculptor Robin Wight. He specializes in transforming lengths of stainless steel wire into beautiful fairies who appear to be exulting in power of the wind as it scatters the seeds of giant dandelions they hold or trees and blades of grass to which they cling.
Visit Robin Wight’s website and Facebook page to view more of his wonderful wire fairies and click here to learn about Wight’s painstaking process for creating these fantastic pieces. He even offers DIY Fairy Sculpture Starter Kits so you can make your own.
This is honestly my favorite Thor moment. He has no idea what that thing is, where he is, what’s going on, but he’s eating pancakes, and the chick with the taser is pointing another electrical thing at him and there are faces on books, but he’s eating pancakes, and yea he’s knows he’s sexy, so yea, he’ll smile.
he doesnt even know what a camera is guys, he just smiles on command
I kind of love asgardians. Most people would be kind of miffed that someone hit them with a car twice and tasered them. He’s just like “SHE HAS BESTED ME IN COMBAT! LET US FEAST TOGETHER!” and I can really get behind that.
I want to point out that Gabe Jones had completed at least three semesters of college (and probably more) before he ended up running around Europe blowing things up with a guy in spangly tights.
Dum Dum: I didn’t know you spoke German.
Gabe: Two semesters at Howards before I switched to French because the girls were cuter.
Gabe Jones is pretty damn awesome.* I dug up some stats so we can appreciate how awesome.
- 2% of white people age 14 and older in the USA were illiterate. For POC ("Black and other") it was 11.5%
- 13% of white men age 25 and older had completed high school. For men of color of the same age (“Black and other races”) it was 3.8%.
- 5.3% percent of white men age 25 and older had completed at least one year of college. For men of color of the same age it was 1.7%.
In other words, Gabe had the deck stacked against him in a serious way, but he is a smartypants and he is tenacious and he slogged through a lot of crap to get to where he wanted to be. He needs more appreciation.
*Of course, we knew that already, but there’s no such thing as too much Gabe Jones love.
I was actually wondering about Gabe Jones and his semesters at Howard and what that meant for his rank. Like, according to everything I’ve seen, he’s a Private… which doesn’t entirely make sense if he was in a segregated unit. I mean, sure, he wouldn’t be an officer, but wouldn’t he have been fast-tracked to be an NCO like Bucky was? I mean, college credits, language skills… he’s a perfect candidate. Every time I think about it, I’m bothered by it. Gabe should honestly be a Corporal if not already a Sergeant.
If I ever write the Howling Commandos fic I keep threatening too… I’ll probably change it so he’s a Sergeant, it just makes sense
Okay, but this movie wins the award for Best Use of Manpain, tho.
In any other movie, Raleigh would’ve spent 90 minutes being like MY PAIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR STUPID WAR, and instead, he snaps back into action as soon as he meets Mako. That’s awesome. But what floors me is that he uses his own grief to help Mako survive hers. He knows how awful it is to lose your family. He knows what she’s going through. And instead of whining or thinking his pain makes him entitled to opt out of his responsibilities, he empathizes with Mako, supports her, and encourages her.
Raleigh’s greatest strength is his compassion. And that’s the kind of male hero I’d like to see on my screen, please.
Plus, like, a bazillion more movies about Mako Mori.
I have a friend who thinks Pacific Rim is the best expression of true, non-toxic, GOOD masculinity in recent times.
Leverage commentary from ‘The Last Dam Job’:
Dean Devlin: Now, a little tidbit for fans out there – the art that you’re seeing on the wall are actually the tiles from the very original Stargate: the Movie, which I still have.
[exclamations from the others]
DD: It was actually – the show had wrapped, and I was getting in my car to drive to the airport, and I noticed that someone had dismantled the Stargate and thrown it in a big giant dumpster and I went “No, no, no, no!” and I dove into the dumpster, pulled out all these tiles, boxed them up, and…
John Rogers: I’ll tell you what – the Stargate – I wish you hadn’t [dismantled it], because there is a lost shot, one we could not do. When we bring the team back together at the beginning of Season 2 we had little moments of what everybody said what they did during the break, and Eliot’s was going to be “What did you do?” and we were going to flash to the Stargate with him in the gear going “All right, but this is the last time!” And then flash back and him going “No.” But the Stargate was broken, it was thrown away!
OH MY GOD
I’m now implementing this as Word of God canon.
