*insidious

A tick for Celeste,

 I don’t even know what blog to refer to her as now, I think she has like 87 of them now. @celestialphotography

These insidious bastards climb to the edge of a leaf or twig and hold out their legs waiting to grab onto a passersby.  This one and several of her cohorts posed momentarily and then feeling the vibrations of me shuffling through the leaves nearby (2 feet away) dropped to the ground and made a beeline straight for me so I had to abort mission.

anyways im so relieved i started disliking y0i MONTHS before the whole w//ttm mess happened. like at first i thought it was not good rep but it wasnt terrible, then i saw it for the fetishizing shit it is and stopped liking it. and NOW, i see that not only do they treat mlm essentially as toys, but they also sexualise children??? trash. (y//urio was sexualised before what w the pillow thing but this reaches new levels of insidious)

Tbh they are all sexualised.
No excuse they just ARE.
If not why would a skater show more of his naked flesh than him in a costume for skating.

Sooooo many ppl always argue that there's no ethical consumption under capitalism but tbh as a vegan i've always more respected ppl who are like "i know eating meat is wrong but i like it too much to give it up" or just some ppl dont avoid animal products but eg stuff that's manufactured in China etc. Like honestly i can respect anyone's opinion as long as ppl arent hypocrite and dont hide behind false arguments to hide the fact that they dont care/wanna educate themselves!

That line is just the latest in a long line of fad arguments that come and go, though I find it particularly insidious since these people use it to suggest that not only can we not live in an ethical way, but we shouldn’t even try, which is just incredibly harmful. I much prefer when people are just honest about it as well, I can’t even count the number of times I’ve disproved shitty argument after shitty argument for the person to then just go “ok but I like bacon so lol.” 

i noticed this thing with a lot of men. they tend to be really generous and kind only to women they’re attracted to. duh, obvious statement to most of you but it’s jarring when you see it first hand and it’s so prevalent and insidious to the point that it feels uncomfortable accepting help from a strange without thinking of the possibility of him having ulterior motives. and it’s disheartening knowing that if you’re in a position needing a man’s help, a lot of times it will depend entirely on whether or not he’s attracted to you. and the problem is that they think this goes both ways. i can show a simple gesture of kindness and a man will take it as me coming on to him. me letting you go in front of me on the checkout line because you have one item, me offering change because you don’t have any, or anything other well-intentioned act of kindness results in a man trying to eventually make a move thinking that it’s mutual. how sad it must be to think that there’s no kindness for the sake of kindness. that all good done in this world is based on sexual impulses instead of the desire to help another human being just how you like to be helped. 

AQUAMAN Press Release

BURBANK, Calif. — Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure “Aquaman,” helmed by James Wan (“The Conjuring” films, “Furious 7”). Jason Momoa stars in the title role, returning to the character he plays in this fall’s “Justice League.”

The film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko; Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (upcoming “Baywatch,” Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as Black Manta; with Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Atlanna.

The film is being produced by Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Wan’s team behind the scenes includes such frequent collaborators as Oscar-nominated director of photography Don Burgess (“The Conjuring 2,” “Forrest Gump”), his five-time editor Kirk M. Morri (“The Conjuring” films, “Furious 7,” the “Insidious” films) and production designer Bill Brzeski (“Furious 7”). They are joined by costume designer Kym Barrett (“The Matrix” trilogy; “The Amazing Spider-Man”), along with Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Charles Gibson (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2”) and VFX supervisor Kelvin McIlwain (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise).

As is fitting for the king of the sea, the shoot will take place mainly in locations spanning the stunning Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, with extensive filming to be accomplished at Village Roadshow Studios. The production will utilize the facility’s sprawling backlot and all nine VRS soundstages, including its newest, Stage 9, the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Filming will also take place in Newfoundland, Sicily and Tunisia.

An icon for over 75 years, Aquaman is known by fans of DC Comics as the ruler of Atlantis but committed to protecting the entire globe, both land and sea.

Currently set for a 2018 release, the film is based on characters from DC.
