Museum for African Art Scales Back Construction Plans

The new Museum for African Art, which was originally scheduled to open on New York’s Museum Mile at Fifth Avenue and 110th Street in 2009, has announced plans to dramatically scale back its construction plans in order meet budgetary shortfalls, reports the New York Times.

Once budgeted at $135 million, the project now stands to spend a more modest $95 million, and has eliminated pricey features such as a curved ceiling of rare wood imported from Ghana (it will be replaced with polished concrete), a spiraling staircase, and a classical theater and restaurant. The institution sought to sell naming rights to its new building for $50 million, but found no takers.

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.

All agreement.

alright thats it im torrenting this movie

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

*The tie-in with the projection-mapping is especially good.

I’ve played with this in person, it’s fucking awesome.

WE’RE LIVING IN THE FUCKING FUTURE

ANDDDD THATS THE BOTTOM LIIIINEEEEE CAUSE STONE COLD SAID SO!
*glass shatters*

Laying it down Stone Cold style.

This man is the fucking best. So much respect.

One of my number one issues with organized religion. That’s why so many people identify as christian even if they’ve never gone to church or learned anything about the religion at all- because it’s seen as an easy get out of jail free card. That so long as you say sorry after then your slate it whiped clean. The thing is though, you’re supposed to actually be repentent and work to never make the mistake again as well as you must pay the social dues of your mistakes and should also be apologetic to those you’ve wronged. Those people never do any of that, say they’re sorry for all the hatred they spew at the LGBTQ community, and then they say sorry with no regret in their hearts or any plans to stop their behavior whatsoever.

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now let’s just unpack who is “conventionally attractive”

^^^^^^^

Im a really bad navigator and i was feeling extremely shitty about myself and i thought joseph was upset with me…. i really wanted to self harm but i was in a car with other people. Normally i go to a private place and punch my head until i think ive had enough. I had my arms crossed so i decided to grab my fat arms over and over until it hurt and this is the end result. Ive NevEr left marks on myself like this before. When im with friends im usually this happy smiling giggling person- the kind of person you would never expect self harms. Ive never wanted to cut myself because im afraid of the scars telling strangers that im struggling. If i keep my arms close to my body you cant see them but the minute i reach out or raise my arm they are visible. Idk how to make bruises go away, just drink lots of water? I’ll be wearing tshirts to work and everywhere else until they go away. The hard part will be hiding these from my bf, unless we break up then i have nothing to worry about….
I dont want people to know how much i hate myself and why. Just another fucking lesson my “parents” ingrained into me since i was 4- dont talk to anyone about what goes on at home. Look how great this has turned out for me twenty years later.
