Behold the thousand-mile stare of the exuberantly-moustachioed Frank L. Carr Jnr, a very decorated window decorator; winner of the First Prize in the ‘Dry Goods Economist’ magazine International Window Dressing Contest 1894. This photo is from an ad for Mr Carr’s 1901 ‘Tour of the World’ promising to “enchant the eyes of thousands”. It’s held in the the State Library of Victoria.
Hundreds of Adelaide citizens were certainly gobsmacked during the tour when Mr Carr’s front window Rock of Ages tableau caught fire one Saturday morning and burned out the entire west wing of the department store in the main street while several locals indulged in a spot of looting. The roiling muslin which depicted “angry waves” crashing on a rocky outcrop of Christianity had gone up in a flash after a gas lamp bulb burst in the window. A hasty inquiry agreed it wasn’t his fault and the story was soon overtaken by the removal of a keeper’s arm at Adelaide Zoo by its resident, rather bitey, bear.

It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.

Guilermo Del Toro - How Pacific Rim saved his life

“I wanted to show that men and women can be friends without having a relationship,” says del Toro of the relationship between the two main characters Mako (played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi) and Raleigh (“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam). “Theirs is a story about partnership, equality and a strong bond between partners. It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.”

Nice article, worth a read. (via nudityandnerdery)

Since us pansexuals, bisexuals, and asexuals “don’t exist,” we are able to walk through other planes and worlds of non-existence. This is why so very few of us can be found during winter and summer break; we are likely taking summer classes at Hogwarts or vacationing in Isengard-gard-gard.

I don’t even like to wear yellow… but for this I’d make an exception. Too bad colourwork and I don’t agree with each other.

while i love where it has joker repeating on the upper area i feel there was a lost opportunity to make the JX section say “na na na(etc)” and maybe “batman” in the same line on each arm
