and look they even did yellow lighting

I’ve seen alot of posts about all the ways shadowhunters was bad and unfaithful to the books so heres a list of all the things that were faithful/extremely accurate (and not in the movie which some of you seem to love so much ):

  • Simon’s band name changes twice in one episode from chamagne enima to rock solid panda 
  • Isabelle’s terrible cooking is mentioned, she even makes simon soup (or what passes for it)
  • Alec actually speaks (gasp) and is the sassiest motherfucker in the institute
  • Isabelle also speaks (gaspx2) and knows shes sexy af, and just sits around being a goddess and giving out wise advice 
  • The lightwood siblings are bffs, and isabelle is constantly trying to make alec happy
  • the seraph blades actually light up
  • Hodge is in his 30s (and not like 80 years old how did that even make sense he was the youngest member of the circle? anyway.)
  • Jocelyn is a badass
  • Valentine is scary af and actually old enough to be clary’s father
  • “shadowhunters looking better in black than the widows of our enemies”
  • Raphael is actually there
  • Jace is cocky af
  • portals can only be created by warlocks
  • Clary is a badass
  • Simons yellow van
  • magnus’ outfits
  • just all the characters were on point and i am trash bye 
THG and Dandelions

So I see ALLOT of people who are real mad about the whole dandelion thing not being included in the movies. As someone who watched the movies first, I disagree and think they did a pretty good job to paying some respect to it for fans if you look hard enough

YELLOW IS EVERYWHERE, U JUST AINT LOOKING

There is ALLOT of yellow in many of Peeta’s scenes. Sometimes it’s very obvious, sometimes it very subtle. I’ve even noticed it coming out VERY subtly in scenes where Katniss is thinking/talking about Peeta. Movies use colour and lighting to indicate and induce emotion or character. Soft yellow and goldish light is a pretty common feature of Peeta’s scenes even if it’s not all that noticeable. But there’s usually some hanging about somewhere  and its pretty intense sometimes

A strong example is when she has the dream about Peeta, its overlayed with a yellowish tone the entire time which gets pretty intense when he says ‘always’

The real or not real scenes are both very yellow 

In the end of Mockingjay part 2, go back and watch the movie from when Peeta returns, its pretty much all yellow light. Especially strong when she goes to Peetas room in the night

Notice how when Katniss is alone after the end of the war there is little colour, its very grey and cold in those scenes. I also noticed multiple yellow/gold highlights appearing. Like when she finds buttercup in the kitchen there’s a really obvious yellow patterned chair hanging off to the side in a very colourless scene.  When Peeta returns we start to see colour return to her world. 

Note the slight changes in tone between the two scenes and the highlighted gold features in the first gif. Reference to Peeta-those gold highlights are gone in the second gif, colour is starting to return and Peeta is there 

Also-I don’t think the dandelion thing would’ve worked well in film as something Katniss SAID. Its a nice concept written in a book, but I really don’t see how it could’ve been incoperated smoothly into the movies. Voice overs are just yuk and it would’ve been out of place and not fitting with the movies.

Films and books show things in very different ways, and sometimes things just don’t cross well into films. I think they did a brilliant job of subtly referencing the book in so many ways.

So next time you want to complain about the movies, do some research and study it properly. Both are mediums that should be respected for their strengths and weaknesses. Its bloody hard to convert a book into a movie and much more thought goes into things as you might expect

Alicia Keys and Yellow Diamond

Then a friend of mine was listening to “Alicia keys-Girl on Fire" and saw this scene and said she looked a lot like the silhouette of Yellow Diamond and it could even be a reference.

( sorry for my bad english -_-)

Ow boy…The lighting, the hair, everything was like that.I was speechless when I saw it…. O.O

So I was thinking that the arrival of the Yellow Diamond on earth it could have come singing "This gems is on Fireeeee”. and I did this:

I need to take my medicine ….

rainbowbarnacle said to asktheimprobableinvestigators: so did you guys see Mad Max and do you think there could be crazy post apocalyptic airplanes

OH MY GOD. OH. MY GOD. HE’S SEEN IT FIVE TIMES NOW. I THINK HE KNOWS ALL THE DIALOGuE. NOT THAT THERE IS MuCH.

LOOK WHO’S TALKING, MISTER “I LIKE TO YELL WITNESS MEEEEE EVERY TIME I MAKE IT THROUGH A YELLOW LIGHT.”

WHAT CAN I SAY. I AM uTTERLY SHINY. MY ALBEDO IS BEYOND COMPARE.

AND YOU DRIVE A 2003 PEUGEOT. THAT IS THE VEHICULAR DEFINITION OF MEDIOCRE. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE ANY SKULLS STRAPPED TO THE FRONT.

THEY’RE THERE IN SPIRIT. SPIRITuALLY MY CAR IS COVERED WITH SKuLLS. SKuLLS EVERYWHERE. I DON’T SEE YOUR DAILY DRIVER WINNING ANY SKULL CONTESTS EITHER, BY THE WAY.

THEY FALL OFF ON THE BELTWAY AND CAUSE A HAZARD TO OTHER MOTORISTS. ANYWAY I HAVE A BUMPER STICKER THAT SAYS “I AM AWAITED IN VALHALLA,” SO THERE. WHAT WAS THE QUESTION?

POSTAPOCALYPTIC AIRPLANES, YES OR NO.

AHA. THIS WAS THE PREMISE OF THE TERRIBLE FILM SLIPSTREAM WHICH IS WORTH WATCHING JUST TO SEE BOB PECK PLAY THE HELL OUT OF AN ANDROID SEARCHING FOR MEANING IN A WORLD GONE MAD. YOU CAN IGNORE BILL PAXTON AND MARK HAMILL GURNING IN THE BACKGROUND. EVERYONE FLIES TERRIBLE POSTAPOCALYPTIC AIRPLANES BECAUSE THE JET STREAM HAS SOMEHOW COME WAY THE FUCK DOWN CLOSE TO THE GROUND OR SOMETHING. IT’S PRETTY BAD.

THE SAME PROBLEMS APPLY FOR PLANES AS THEY WOuLD FOR GROuND-BASED VEHICLES. PARTS AVAILABILITY. METAL FATIGuE. THE DIFFICuLTY OF POWERPLANT MAINTENANCE IN A RESOuRCE-LIMITED SETTING. AND THEN YOu HAVE THE DIFFICuLTY OF SOuRCING APPROPRIATE FuEL. AVGAS AND JET-A ARE NOT THE SAME AS WHAT YOu PuT IN YOuR CAR.

I’M GUESSING THE WAR BOYS WEREN’T INTO LONGEVITY IN THEIR DESIGN CONCEPTS. MAKING IT RUN FAST AND HARD RATHER THAN MAKING IT ABLE TO GO ON RUNNING FOR SEVERAL YEARS OF USE MEANS YOU CAN BE A BIT MORE CAVALIER WITH YOUR POWERPLANT. BUT A CAR HELD TOGETHER WITH SPIT AND BALING WIRE ISN’T GONNA KILL YOU WHEN IT THROWS A ROD – PROBABLY – WHEREAS A PLANE THAT’S SUDDENLY AN ENGINE-FREE ZONE IS NOT SOMEWHERE YOU WANT TO BE.

CANONICALLY. THERE ARE ABSOLuTELY POSTAPOCALYPTIC AIRPLANES. REMEMBER JEDEDIAH’S TRANSAVIA AIRTRuK FROM BEYOND THuNDERDOME. AND THE AuTOGYRO FROM ROAD WARRIOR. BuT I’M THINKING THEY’RE NOT ANYWHERE NEAR AS COMMON AS GROuND VEHICLES. FOR THE REASONS WE’VE JuST STATED.

THOSE THERE ARE, ARE ALMOST CERTAINLY GONNA BE REAL SIMPLE DESIGNS, THE KIND OF PLANE USED FOR CROP DUSTING OR BUSH FLYING, SOMETHING THAT’S RUGGED AND RELATIVELY EASY TO FIX WHEN IT GOES WRONG, SOMETHING THAT CAN TAKE OFF AND LAND ON ROUGH TERRAIN. ALSO SOMETHING THAT’S REALLY STABLE AND EASY TO FLY, BECAUSE THERE AREN’T EXACTLY FLIGHT SCHOOLS DOTTED AROUND THE DESERT LANDSCAPE. YOU GOTTA LEARN FROM SOMEONE WHO ALREADY KNOWS HOW TO FLY, AND YOU GOTTA LEARN IT REALLY FUCKING FAST. THERE IS A LOT MORE TO DRIVING A PLANE THAN THERE IS TO DRIVING A CAR.

WHICH IS WHY YOu NEVER LEARNED.

ONE HUNDRED PERCENT ACCURATE. I’VE SEEN TOO MANY LITTLE PLANES IN PIECES TO REALLY WANT TO TRY MY HAND AT FLYING ONE. THAT’S YOUR JOB.

I CAN’T PuT SKuLLS ON A CESSNA ONE-FIFTY WITHOuT COMPLETELY FuCKING uP THE AERODYNAMICS. DON’T THINK I HAVEN’T CONSIDERED IT.

YOU COULD PAINT THEM ON. IN SHINY SILVER PAINT.

NOW THERE’S AN IDEA.

“Broken and Blue”
It was cold while I was shooting this timelapse, so I pulled my car up next to my camera and sat in there to keep warm. After about 10 minutes I looked back to check that my camera was still shooting. It wasn’t even there! For some reason, my first thought was, did someone sneak up behind me and steal my camera? No, I found it on the ground, knocked over by the wind I’d guess, since all the tripod legs were still fully extended.
To my amazement, the camera still worked, but the body was cracked open, and it didn’t look good. The worst part is that I pretty much just bought it, and even though it’s still under warranty, it doesn’t cover careless stupidity.
I am the worst when it comes to cameras, I try to be careful, but they’ve been dropped, stolen, left in all kinds of weather they shouldn’t be in, worn out shutters from over use, you name it! I try to be careful, but it seems I’m not careful enough.
Fun fact: The title is the name of a song by the Fembots. I think it sets the mood for how I felt on the ride home from here. I was going to post a youtube link, but I can’t find the song on there for some reason.

James left Albus after their conversation with a heavy heart. It was hard telling him all of those things, harder to hear him argue back. James now knew why he couldn’t tell Albus these things. He’d either get mad or not take them seriously. It was hard, but he was his brother. Telling Al about his condition was the hardest thing out of the entire conversation, but Al’s swimming words did nothing to help ease his sadness. So he went and ventured to the edge of the Forbidden Forest and climbed up one of the trees, settling in a thick branch several feet into the air, hidden from the world and looking at the drowning sun over the horizon as he stared at the castle from a distance, watching as the orange and yellow lights twinkled through the windows. 

He hadn’t taken his potion yet, even though it sat in his pocket, ready to be drank. He didn’t feel the need. It wouldn’t help anything. But as he sat there, drowning in his miserable thoughts, he heard leaves crunching and shuffling beneath him. He jumped, grabbing the tree trunk to keep from falling. “Who’s there?” he shouted.
