In post-Katrina New Orleans the artist Candy Chang used the power of public art to provide hope for overcoming emotional trauma: she painted a wall of an abandoned building and stenciled the sentence, “Before I die I want to _____.” Within a day the wall was covered with colorful messages of people. Since then, more than four hundred Before I Die walls have been created in over 60 countries and over 25 languages. The book collects the images, the tears, the stories, the secret thoughts, the smiles, the fears and the dreams behind the public walls.

JUST as important as learning to cite a paper, being a good digital citizen is a MUST in the world today.

This image puts “things” found on the internet in a more meaningful context… 

The process of city-making belongs to citizens today more than yesterday: communities take ownership of their environment and by means of low resources, awareness and creativity answer their needs. Handmade Urbanism focuses on five emerging cities -Mumbai, Cape Town, Mexico City, Istanbul and São Paulo - and describes the potential of urban transformation embedded in small-scale initiatives.

The Ring, The Ring Two, and Teen Wolf: Parallels

Since vidronoliquidificador did a great write-up for Saw, I thought I’d try to put the movies beside the show for The Ring and The Ring Two.


Spoilers for The Ring and The Ring Two follow along with details of fictional death and suicide.

This is a long one.

Make_Shift City. Renegotiating the Urban Commons starts on the premise that public spaces are part of urban commons, today more than yesterday, as recent history has told us. With this consideration, the book presents a collection of the most mesmerizing design projects reshaping cities’ topography by means of art, imagination, civic participation and low resources.

Works on this list either have a book or box shown in show, the title mentioned in dialogue, dialogue from them spoken, or scene(s) lived out by characters.


No (?) means I’ve found them cited within the show either by a line of dialogue, a shot recreated from, the title spoken, or the book/film/etc. in the background.

(?) means that they may satisfy one of these elements but I don’t feel confident with the attribution.


At top are just ones I’ve read or seen so far that appear to have large contributions.

Nonfiction books usually either have a broad subject title (Pathology) or are used like posters with text on them to give meta info on the scene. Haven’t capped those/written those down.

I’m sure this is incomplete. For one thing in terms of dialogue I probably didn’t recognize some references, or for other things missed writing them down.

Create your bibliography or reference list automatically using the APA, Chicago, MLA, Vancouver, or Harvard referencing citation styles. It’s fast and free!

Working on a long assignment at the moment. Thought I would share this link - really useful and massive time-saver! My bibliographies were always wrong before I started using it - never perfect, always forgot something, never really consistent… Now they are always right. Would recommend it.

As a professor of anthropology one frequently has to advise graduate students whose work is, in some key aspects, far removed from one’s own area of expertise. It makes sense that a graduate student interested in child labor in India would want to work with me. I’ve published on India and teach a course on economic anthropology, but that doesn’t mean I know very much about child labor issues in India. What I can do is steer that student in the right direction.

Multiply this by a number of related scenarios (e.g. book reviews, manuscript evaluations, discussing a conference paper, etc.) and you see why anthropologists frequently have to learn how to grok an entire subfield in under an hour. Yes, real expertise takes years of hard work, but identifying the key works and ideas that define a subfield can be done quickly if you know where to look. A good analogy might be the difference between having grown up in a city and knowing how to use a good travel guide with Google maps.

This post was written with my graduate students in mind, but hopefully even experienced researchers will find it useful. (I myself only recently learned of two of the listed sources for annotated bibliographies from Rex…)

Thank you Savage Minds for these very useful tips!

The Terminator Teen Wolf


"Night School":

Scott: Call your dad.
Stiles: And tell him what?
Scott: I don’t know, anything. Gas leak, a fire, whatever. If that thing sees the parking lot filled with cop cars, it’ll take off.
Stiles: What if it doesn’t? What if it goes completely Terminator and kills every cop in sight, including my dad?

"Letharia Vulpina":

Aiden: What the hell were you doing? Building a Terminator?
Stiles: Thank you for that.



Mostly I just wanna know where the time travel is in Teen Wolf tbh.

Has there already been actual time travel?

Couple The Terminator with all the Back to the Future references and the Sheriff posing the question of time travel aloud.
