“Có thể em không tốt, nhưng toàn thế giới này em là duy nhất. Anh trân trọng cũng được, mà không trân trọng cũng không sao. Nếu một ngày anh làm lạc mất em, em cũng sẽ không để anh tìm thấy. Tình bạn cũng vậy, tình yêu cũng thế, một khi đã tạm biệt, sau này cũng không hẹn gặp lại.”
The Wanted 18, a hybrid animated documentary about 18 cows on the lam from the Israeli army during the First Intifada resistance to the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, will represent Palestine in the running for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.
Directed by Palestinian cartoonist Amer Shomali and Canadian Paul Cowan, the film creatively blends animation, interviews and reenactments to tell the story of the cows, which were used for “independent milk production” on a Palestinian collective farm during the boycott of Israeli products, and according to the movie were considered a “threat to the national security of the state of Israel.” (x)

I was messing around with a pick of Lam and thought it would be fun to put a shark tail on the character.
I really like it.
So I’m considering redesigning the character. Lam hasn’t appeared in the DMFR comic yet, so it wouldn’t be too off putting story wise, and changing the profile image wouldn’t be too hard. That said, I’m a little iffy on redesigning characters (asides from minor things, or outfit changes).
Tho Lams, thank you for showing us what a creepy little person eyeguts is, so people hopefully will avoid them.
honestly yall you should block them bc 1. they’re really manipulative 2. they pretend they can doxx you and i know these can trigger some people so please just block them, dont give them the attention they crave, be safe guys <3
Do you guys know the hotel from The Shining? Well, there’s a hotel in downtown LA, The Cecil, that makes Kubrik’s Overlook Hotel look like a day spa. Opened in 1924, it’s been the location of several suicides, murders, mysterious disappearances and was even the home of serial killers Richard Ramirez and Jack Unterweger. It’s also been rumored to have been one the last places Elizabeth Short, AKA the Black Dahlia, was spotted before her murder in 1947.
The most infamous death to ever occur at the Cecil Hotel happened in February 2013 when the body of 21-year-old Canadian student Elisa Lam was discovered inside of a water tank on the hotel’s roof. The circumstances of her death remain a mystery to this day.
The enigma begins on February 1st, when Elisa’s parents alerted the LAPD that they had not heard from their daughter, and that she might be missing. The police searched her room and the rest of the hotel but found no evidence of her whereabouts.
During this time, the LAPD released a chilling 4-minute video of Lam captured by a surveillance camera in an elevator in the hopes the public could help locate her. The video depicts her acting erratically, waving her hands in strange, unnatural ways and seemingly arguing with someone who is off-camera. The elevator door remains open the whole time. (View here) The video yielded no clues and the search went on for two weeks but no sign of her was found.
On February 19th, guests staying at the Cecil began to complain of oddly colored water coming from their sinks and baths that “smelled and tasted funny.” When a maintenance worker climbed on the roof to check the large 1,000 gallon water tanks, he discovered Elisa’s body. The guests of the hotel fled when they discovered they had been drinking and bathing in water that had been contaminated by a decomposing corpse.
The autopsy found no traces of recreational drugs or alcohol in her system, and the death was ruled an accident. Lam suffered from bipolar disorder, and many believe she was going through a psychotic episode, possibly jumping into the tank and not realizing there was no way to get out once inside. Others believe there’s more to the story, with many questioning how Lam could have gained access to the tanks by herself without the aid of a ladder. Many also believe the elevator footage was heavily edited before release.
Theories range from murder to demonic possession. Whatever the explanation, Elisa Lam’s tragic death adds another chapter to the harrowing history of the Cecil Hotel.
Interesting fact:American Horror Story: Hotel is rumored to be based on the death of Elisa Lam and The Cecil. Many have also pointed out the uncanny similarities between her death and the 2005 horror film Dark Water.
