"Trying to get a baby or a fussy toddler to sit still for a photograph can feel like a herculean task. Luckily, it only takes a second to get the shot. In the nineteenth century, however, it was a different story—particularly when it came to tintype portraits, which required a long exposure.
Photographer Laura Larson’s series, Hidden Mother, presents a survey of nineteenth-century tintype portraits in which the mother of the child was included in the photograph, but obscured.
In some instances, the mother would hold her child, with a cloth or props hiding her from the lens, or she would be painted over by the photographer after the image had been taken. In other examples, the mother is entirely absent from the frame, save for an arm, holding the child in place.
The results are both funny and slightly disturbing. The mother appears as an uncanny presence, Larson writes in a statement. Often, she is swathed in fabric, like a ghost.”
im laughing because I wrote “a bug cliche” instead of “big” but I think I’m gonna keep it because a bug cliche :DDD
I AM TRYING TO WRITE A POEM!
For my creative writing lessons!
WRITING A POEN IS REALLY HARD
especially when I dont usually write poems or read them so I have no idea if my text is actually fresh and smart or just one bug cliche.
isn’t it weird that you can have friends but also have no friends at the same time
In Finnish there’s a kind of a distinction between this. “Kaveri” refers to a casual friend who you can hang out and have fun with, while “ystävä” is a friend who you can have deep and meaningful conversations and a strong connection with. Because we Finns have to make this distinction to not give a wrong impression when saying “I’m his friend”.
Let’s all play “Let’s look for weird names in the credits while we wait for the marvel movie to end”

Neil Patrick Harris is spilling details about his wedding to David Burtka
E! Online (Sept. 17, 2014)
The 41-year-old Tony winner and his 39-year-old hubby tied the knot in Italy last week surrounded by close friends, family and their 3-year-old twins, Harper and Gideon. The How I Met Your Mother star says getting married was important for his family.
"We just have been together over 10 years," Harris said this morning on The View. “I think when our kids got to the age where they were having reasonable conversations—where they’re asking lots of why questions—then it seemed like to be able to have a real clear-cut explanation of who their daddy is. I think its great [to say], ‘He’s my husband.’”
As for their Italian ceremony, which included mega-star guests like Elton John, Harris dished, “It was nice. It was very small, intimate. Only 45 people were there. We did a destination wedding so it kind of kept the numbers down. I just wanted to be able to say nice things about David, to David, in front of the people who matter most to us…a declaration to share in front of our kids.”
"When you watch other people say their vows and they get all choked up you think, ‘C’mon, pull it together, man!’" he went on. "Then when you’re standing there and it’s you and you have this piece of paper that’s shaking…you can’t help but just get super-duper choked up. I wasn’t a crying mess or anything, but they’re important words that need to be heard by the person that you’re [marrying]…it was fun."
The couple’s twins played a part in the ceremony, but not without a little bit of drama.
"They were fun. Harper was the flower girl," Harris revealed. "Gideon was supposed to be the ring bearer. He said, ‘I’m the orange boy.’ We said, ‘What in the world is an orange boy?’ He explained this whole thing that he comes down with a basket of oranges and he hands the oranges to everyone…Harper was gonna go first and do the flower petals. She’s much more into Frozen and Tinkerbell and performing…She was very excited to throw flowers at people…We’re about to start. Harper doesn’t go and she panics. She’s starting to cry and we’re all stressed, like, ‘You have to go now! We’ve timed this to the sunset’…I was like, ‘David, let’s pick her up and we’ll all go together.”
I love this MAGISTERIUM: THE IRON TRIAL Trailer!
some people feel pressured by labels, and therefore don’t like to label their sexuality
some people find comfort in labels, and labeling their sexuality has given them a feeling of belonging
both are completely fine
i’m not sure why some people still can’t comprehend this
My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
