Andrew Garfield in The Social Network (2010).
The showdown that was always meant to be.
Finally! I have planned this for like a while now, but there was always something I wasn’t satisfied with. I am still not exactly satisfied, but at least I seem to quite like this…I guess.
Anyway, the most breathtaking and amazing fight scene in the history of animation *_*
Hope you’ll like this..and I hope I didn’t mess it up too much haha
Happy Mother’s Day!
Artworks from 'Esteemed,' my collaborative art gallery and eventual fanfiction project about Toph’s coming of age into motherhood amongst the stressful duties of law enforcement. These images portray Toph’s early days of looking after Lin, and her friends encouraging her through it.
As someone who wants nothing more in this life than to be a father some day, for now, I can only live vicariously through the lives of fictional parents.
This year, I am feeling personally conflicted, as I find myself admiring friends of mine who are mothers, many who’ve only recently become parents within the last year of two — while my own relationship with my mother is complex, marred by the selfish and illogical decisions she has made in recent years in regards to her own children. It makes me have this weird feeling like, “I wish my mom had made the choices you are making right now.” But my mom didn’t make those choices. And that’s kind of frustrating to reflect on.
But you know what? That doesn’t mean Mother’s Day isn’t worth celebrating. While I may not be very happy with my own mom right now, I’m trying to encourage the friends I have who are mothers to keep doing an awesome job, and keep up the no-doubt stressful work that goes into those early years, in particular.
Wish your own mothers and grandmother’s a Happy Mother’s Day, of course, but I strongly encourage you to really reach out to someone who isn’t YOUR mom and let them know that they are still awesome. You never know how much it might mean to someone to hear a peer encouraging their parenting.
Make sure they know they are not alone, and that they have people who are there to help them be the best parent they can be when the going gets tough — which it does. Even strong, independent women like Toph still need equally strong friends in their lives.
Bringing this back from last year.
Because fuck yea, mothers.
And also fuck yea to the artists who work with me on such fantastic pieces for my stories. It’s such a pleasure to work with so many indie artists!
I’VE WAITED 8734 YEARS FOR THIS GIFSET
IT TOOK ME 11 YEARS TO REALIZE HE WAS SAYING “TABLE FOR HOW MANY”
Dowling Duncan and redesigning the American Dollar:
Why the size?
We have kept the width the same as the existing dollars. However we have changed the size of the note so that the one dollar is shorter and the 100 dollar is the longest. When stacked on top of each other it is easy to see how much money you have. It also makes it easier for the visually impaired to distinguish between notes.
Why a vertical format?
When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally. You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.
Why different colors?
It’s one of the strongest ways graphically to distinguish one note from another.
Why these designs?
We wanted a concept behind the imagery so that the image directly relates to the value of each note. We also wanted the notes to be educational, not only for those living in America but visitors as well. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.
$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt. During this time he led the congress to pass more important legislations than most presidents pass in their entire term. This helped fight the economic crises at the time of the great depression. Ever since, every new president has been judged on how well they have done during the first 100 days of their term.
