Adversity is like a strong wind. I don’t mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go. It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.

eating is so badass i mean you put something in a cavity where you smash and destroy it with 32 protruding bones and then a meat tentacle pushes it into a pool of acid and after a few hours later you absorb its essence and transform it in energy just wow

Guardians of the Galaxy is breaking box office records this weekend, but more importantly it’s breaking barriers in Hollywood by being the first Marvel script credited to a woman.
Guardians of the Galaxy is receiving remarkable reviews by critics and fans alike and is expected to take in over $90 million during its explosive opening weekend.
What’s more interesting is that Guardians of the Galaxy is the first Marvel film to have been written by a woman that’s actually received credit for their work.
Screenwriter Nicole Perlman has been on the rise for quite some time. She’s been included in up and coming screenwriter lists for years now and even did some work on Thor’s script, but she’s finally been given credit for being the screenwriter of Marvel’s latest film, which is being touted for its unique storyline.
In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Perlman explained her attempts to persuade studios to put their trust in a woman’s hands to write sci-fi, saying, “I was noticing that I was having trouble convincing people, when I was pitching on projects, that I would be capable of doing this. There was a little bit of an attitude of, ‘Well, you’re a woman, you’re not writing romantic comedies, we’ll give you the Marie Curie biopic.’”
I’ve read so many reviews that go out of their way to praise Gunn for everything that goes on in the movie and don’t mention Nicole even once, so PLEASE, don’t forget her.
The work of Taiwanese photographer Yung Cheng Lin rests somewhere on the boundary of surrealism, sensuality and the grotesque. Testament to this is his latest series of keenly manipulated imagery of the human form. Leaning heavily on voyeurism, the photo set features the human body in various twisted yet intimate contexts against against ethereal settings, making for a captivating series.
