behind the scenes of food

2

I don’t think I ever mentioned it here, but this year I want to try making a Small Interactive Thing each month this year….so!

I’m not quite going to finish this one within the month, mostly ‘cause I was lazy last week ha, but here’s some progress on the first Small Interactive Thing!! I’ve been posting these and some other progress pics on Twitter, if you’re interested in seeing more ~Behind The Scenes~

How are you going to feed the world?

Can I be honest? I don’t love that question. No, not because we already produced enough calories to more than feed the world. One billion people will go hungry today. One billion. That’s more than ever before. Because of gross inequalities in distribution, not tonnage.

Now, I don’t love this question because it’s determined the logic of our food system for the last 50 years. Feed grain to herbivores. Pesticides to mono-cultures. Chemicals to soil. Chicken to fish. And all along, agri-business has simply asked if we’re feeding more people more cheaply, how terrible could that be?

That’s been the motivation, it’s been the justification. It’s been the business plan of American agriculture. We should call it what it is - a business in liquidation. A business that’s quickly eroding ecological capital that makes that very production possible. That’s not a business and it isn’t agriculture.

It’s clear that Giant Pacific Octopus is smart- Webster recalls a time she was feeding Cordelia, an octopus whose name means “daughter of the sea,” while giving a behind-the-scenes tour. “I went down to grab another piece of food, and there wasn’t any left,” she says. “She had it in her arms. She had figured out where I kept her bin, and she had reached in, grabbed it and pulled it back out. They’re very smart, very intelligent creatures, so I had to learn to move the bin around.” 📝: @nationalaquarium

What kind of person do you think Changmin is?

ok this turned out to be really long so short ver: changmin is motivational, inspirational, elegant, ambitious, stubborn, hardworking, tsundere, overachieving, modest, sarcastic, an idiot, hella handsome and he knows it

long ver: 

oh my God this is.. going to be ramble. changmin as a person motivates me sosososo much and makes me laugh so much like i can’t even begin to explain. he debuted when he was 15, and he’s almost 30 now and that just makes me so emotional like he has grown so MUCH… so much, and the man he is today is so impressive. he used to be so shy OK he rarely talked and now look at him, stripping on stage and dressing up as the sexiest lady ever like that’s some #characterdevelopment

afksdhkasjh changmin is… a complicated person, as we all are. he loves, so much, with all his heart, but he has difficulty expressing it. knowing all of yunho’s habits, and taking care of him quietly, because he isn’t the kind of person to overtly display affection. loving his fans but being the number one advocate of #toughlove lmao….. loving his mum but only saying ‘i love you’ to her thrice in her life, im deadass gone i love him. 

he has times where he doubted himself (maybe he still does), but he has grown up to be one of the finest, elegant men i know (as much as i can lol). 

he is motivated, ambitious and hardworking. he knows what he wants and he doesn’t half-ass anything, and that’s one of the things i love about him. changmin doubted becoming an idol many times in his late teens, early twenties. he even said that he didn’t know what was the purpose of him being an idol, because it was so different from what he wanted to do (he wanted to be a sports journalist/broadcaster??? right?? lol). but once he saw the happiness he brings to others, he really devoted himself to the idol life. i think that’s one of the reasons he seemed a lot happier in the later years of dbsk.

another thing, continuing from the previous point - changmin doesn’t do things uselessly. or to phrase that better, anything he pursues is not useless. any hobby he has ever taken up, he has developed to the point he is professional. loves food? probably a food critique behind the scenes (have u seen him analyse wine like oh my God boy). loves photography? fuckin has a photoshoot where he takes photos of scenes and yunho and has that published in a magazine. loves playing the guitar? practices until he has a guitar + singing solo on stage like wtheck overachiever much??

but it’s the overachiever part of him that’s one of the best things about his personality. i dare say he was, and still is, one of the smartest idols out there and it shows (explained later). TWO BACHELORS AND ONE MASTER DEGREE WHILE BEING AN IDOL and then taking a hardcore test to enter the police force so he could be done with army in the same year as yunho?? and taking professional photography classes after schooling?????? bitch i love his overachieving, education-thriving ass so much i can’t even. 

about his smartness showing, he’s so funny in the dry humour and sarcastic sense like ????? only smart people can make jokes the way he does anw ya his brain is my kink im sorry i love it so much… telling fans to check their attitudes when they call him handsome LOL… love it… also love how he cares for his fans but not in the overly affectionate way because that isn’t his style

but yup, i think he’s super modest too. i love the idea when he said that we should treat him as dessert?? or something like that???? that we should focus on our lives and studies and get boyfriends, and only then should we focus on dbsk, because our real lives are a lot more important than him. when he pulls back fans on roads and scolds them for risking their lives just for taking photos of him? (but he knows how handsome he is and also flaunts it so modest???? yes, but he has his moments and he deserves them. look at this)

this is literally 1/300 of him ok he has so many dimensions, the most amazing person i have experienced he will always be my ultimate bias like b ye 

What if sometimes Kaiba invites orphanages to Kaiba Land for a day for free. (Using the American one for this since the layout is shown). One day while making a round to make sure everything is running smooth, he finds a crying, lost girl who got separated from her group. (We’ll say her name is Molly). Kaiba takes the time to find out why she’s so upset, tells his staff to find the orphanage the girl came with, but then decides to give Molly the option of spending the day with him, as a VIP. She accepts cause it sounds like fun. Kaiba gets her on any ride she wants (that’s safe for a 7 year old), any item, any food, some behind the scenes stuff. She gets to meet Mokuba and basically have the time of her life, wearing a big smile all the day. At the end of the day, before she leaves, Molly thanks Kaiba for giving her the best day ever. A few weeks later, Kaiba even gets a hand drawn card from her. He keeps it hidden in his desk cause after all, moments like these are why he and Mokuba built Kaiba Land.

Happy Humpday! Have a soothing how-it’s made video about Japanese wax food models.

It’s clear that #GiantPacificOctopus is smart—smart enough even to outsmart their aquarists now and again. Webster recalls a time she was feeding Cordelia, an octopus whose name means “daughter of the sea,” while giving a behind-the-scenes tour. “I went down to grab another piece of food, and there wasn’t any left,” she says. “She had it in her arms.

“I swear the first time I read the script I was a little worried. It was a really hard scene and too emotional but not in the usual way you know? She needed to make it believable but not obvious that it was acting, something I or Jensen can hardly do sometimes. But the second I saw her- damn!” Jared ended with wide eyes, breathing out a whistle.

“I know right?! It is impossible to believe how so much talent can fit into- well, that!” Misha exclaimed, motioning at you as you laughed at your best friend.

“I think I know Ackles was aware of it, that’s why he asked her out” he added, looking at Jensen who was laughing, with narrowed eyes.

“No I swear! I didn’t! But come on, with so many talents how could I never fall for her? I mean just take a look! I honestly don’t know how she said yes but I certainly won’t question it!” Jensen said with a wide grin, throwing an arm around your shoulders as you laughed.

The entire crowd – as well as Jared and Misha – went all ‘Aww’ at the two of you.

He kissed your cheek and you smiled, bringing the mic close to your face “It’s only because I have low standards”

The smile on his face fell as he pretended to glare at you “Of course, add to all her talents the wit and sarcasm”

“Hey!” you protested “That is the reason why I am dating Dean Winchester so shut it!” and they all laughed with you.

“Yeah but aside from the jokes-” Jensen took on a more serious note, just a soft smile on his lips as he took hold of your hand and gave it a small squeeze “-She is the best thing that ever happened to me and she proves me right every singledamn moment of our days”

You bit your lip as you felt your cheeks heat up.

“From seeing her act, fooling with her behind the scenes, eating her amazing food, at the park sometimes, at a shop, at the shower-” Jensen started on rambling only to be cut off by Jared.

“Whoa dude, we don’t need that much detail!” he said with wide eyes and Jensen rolled his eyes.

“You have such a dirty mind you know? I mean when she is taking a shower and singing. Honestly when I hear her sing it feels as if I fall for her all over again” he shook his head with a laugh and smiling you cupped his cheek and kissed the other.

“Well-” you spoke up “-he’s exaggerating obviously. Just a way to get me later, you know” you grinned and they all laughed.

Jensen gasped looking at you with wide eyes and an open mouth “What are you even talking about?! Don’t believe her! Ok… maybe believe the want to get her part-” you had a 'told-you-so’ look on your face and he tried to ignore it “-But I swear if she wasn’t such a perfect actress she would rock as a singer!”

“As if” you mumbled.

“Prove me wrong then” Jensen had caught on to what you said and you had to keep your eyes from widening.

“Yeah!” Jared’s words made you panic even more.

Becoming an actress was already hard, not because of the acting part but mostly about the fame. You always were a shy person and getting to have so many people look at you and your every move, what you did and what you said, made you nervous. You always were afraid of making a fool of yourself, and getting to sing in front of so many certainly was hard for you.

“Yes yes!” you heard being said all among the crowd.

“Guys no I’m not that good! Jensen is just kidding!” you tried to get them to stop.

“No! Come on! Stop denying it!” Misha brushed you off.

“Come on everybody! Let’s make her sing! (Y/n)! (Y/n)! (Y/n)!” Jared started chanting and so did the rest of the crowd started doing the same. Jensen and Misha as well.

You hid your red face behind your hands feeling really embarrassed.

“Alright alright, just please stop! I will sing” you exclaimed, your face bright red as Jensen grinned widely at you and you had to keep yourself from glaring at him.

“You’re gonna pay for this” you grumbled to him as he went to grab his guitar.

“Alright so I will be your guitarist. What song do ou want? And please let it be one I know”

“I would choose one you don’t so that I would embarrass you as well but I am a nice girlfriend so- 'Nobody Love’ by Tori Kelly”

“That I know!” Jensen said with a happy smile and you let a small giggle.

“Alright-” he mumbled, focusing a little on the guitar in his hands and giving you a small nod when he was sure he was ready “-and go” he whispered and started playing.

You took in a shaky breath and brought the mic close to our mouth, you could hear your heart hammer in your chest in the silence that had followed. Your voice soft and shaky in the beginning.

’(Why, why)

Everybody’s looking for that something
No one ever wants to pay the price
Everybody’s scared of going nowhere
But we ain’t going anywhere tonight

I should be more cynical and tell myself it’s not okay
(To feel this good when I’m with you)
I try my best to fight it, say I hate you but I always stay
Woah, woah, woah cause

You began singing the very first few words. Your voice was not really high. You kept it low, still feeling a little bit nervous. You took a small breath and continued.

Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do

Everybody’s talking ‘bout the next thing
Feel like what they got ain’t good enough
But all I wanna do is release the tension
Bring the conversation back to us

I should be more cynical and tell myself it’s not okay
(To feel this good when I’m with you)
I try my best to fight it, say I hate you but I always stay
Woah, woah, woah cause

Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do

Can we stop all the yelling baby hear me out
I want you here and now
I try my best to fight it, say I hate you but I always stay
Hey, hey, hey…
Yeah, alright, everybody’s looking for that new thing
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Ain’t nobody, nobody, nobody love
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you do
Ain’t nobody love, ain’t nobody love like you-oo-oo-oo do ’

Jensen pulled the final notes and you let out a shaky breath you didn’t know you’d been holding. Silence followed for a mere few seconds and you frowned but when the low clapping and cheering was heard you let out a breathless laugh. Most of them if not all got up from their seats and clapped loudly- as much as they could. The comments they shouted as they cheered made you smile widely, a giggle leaving your lips.

“Told you they’d love it” Jensen winked at you kissing your cheek.

“You’re not off the hook yet” you mumbled at him.

In your face “Dragon Ball Evolution”,  I just sat down and watched 30 min of epicness, finally someone who knows how to make a Dragon Ball movie! I mean the characters looks have no resemblance to the show, but I don’t give a hoot. Blond Bulma and dark haired Trunks,  it would have bothered me before, but I’m just so thrilled to see someone put their heart and soul into this kind of a project to please the fandom! This is how you make a movie about an alternative timeline, this is how you don’t follow the plot to key and change so many details while still succeeding so hard!

Trunksie! I actually think that coloring his hair purple would have been a big mistake, this makes it seem so much more real!

Bulma. Doesn’t have a single line in the entire movie, still manage to create a perfect Bulma personality, I just love the lab scenes!

Mommy and son

I simply love that they had Doctor Briefs in this, and Scratch! This guy really pulls off the role as Bulma’s dad! Looks a bit like Albert Einstein, but probably smarter.

I love the lab scenes!

It’s over 9000! I think this joke is pretty obligatory by now

Krillin

Tien

The Pokemon

Roshi’s Island! So realistic

King Kai’s planet. I’m telling you, the skills of the creators of FoM are over 9000!

And mutherfuckin cell, the closeups are cooler than the bodyshots, but damn did they make him creepy!

And then all of the adorable Vegebul scenes! Just look, they made Trunks his hat with ears!

ABS!

Oh and I was about to die when he smiled and nodded his head to them, melting over here! Seriously, I need to learn how to make gifs!

And the buildings and machines are so well done, I’m gonna keep my hope up for a behind the scenes of this later on!

The scene with Goku eating, food flying everywhere and the voice of Vegeta saying “He was the best of us, he was the greatest warrior ever, he was my Friend!”
