I'm Sarah and things that I like include feminism, video games, television, (web)comics and having excessively fervent emotions about fictional characters. Mostly that last one.

Tim Simmons has an uncanny ability to make regular old Earth look like a far-away planet from Isaac Asimov’s imagination. For twenty years, Simmons has been using studio still life techniques to illuminate night landscapes and create some of the most awe-inspiring, mystical photos out there.

Simmons’ practice is rooted in his concern for our planet. By revealing undiscovered worlds within banal landscapes, his goal is to take on environmental apathy, to challenge the viewer’s assumptions about the constancy of nature.

‘We send these kids off to war — we make them see things people otherwise wouldn’t have to see. Then we expect them to come back and behave like the rest of us. It’s breaking my heart.’ (via Heartbreaking Photos Of A Troubled Iraq War Veteran Win Pulitzer Prize)

‘Brinicle’ Ice Finger of Death - BBC

As sea water freezes to form surface ice, the remaining brine sinks, being much denser and colder than the surrounding water. As it descends, the surrounding water freezes upon contact, creating a ‘brinicle’, a frozen sheath of ice that grows downward towards the sea floor. When it touches the sea floor, it kills anything it touches, encasing them in a tomb of ice.

Woman Who Made Fun Of American Apparel Contest Wins, American Apparel Act Like A Bunch Of Babies

Nancy Upton, the gorgeous prankster who satirized American Apparel’s condescending search for a plus-sized model with smutty and silly overindulgence photos, actually won the online contest! Then American Apparel acted all American Apparel and wouldn’t recognize her victory, even though she had far and away the most votes. Here are some more of the photos that lampooned the contest and won the hearts of online voters.




American Apparel’s Pissy Response To Nancy Upton, In Part
“It’s a shame that your project attempts to discredit the positive intentions of our challenge based on your personal distaste for our use of light-hearted language, and that “bootylicous” was too much for you to handle. While we may be a bit TOO inspired by Beyoncé, and do have a tendency to occasionally go pun-crazy, we try not to take ourselves too seriously around here. I wonder if you had taken just a moment to imagine that this campaign could actually be well intentioned, and that my team and I are not out to offend and insult women, would you have still behaved in the same way, mocking the confident and excited participants who put themselves out there?”
 … “Oh—and regarding winning the contest, while you were clearly the popular choice, we have decided to award the prizes to other contestants that we feel truly exemplify the idea of beauty inside and out, and whom we will be proud to have representing our company.”


god damn I hate American Apparel and their ever apparent shaming of plus size women.

No comment on shaming or anything of that nature, but the fact that she went out to lampoon this and won is fantastic.

This lady is awesome. No two ways about it.

A giant FUCK YOU to american apparel and one (1) million virtual smooches to Nancy Upton.
