The Rachel Miner Project

Hey y'all. As you may know, Rachel Miner (Meg 2.0) suffers from MS (multiple sclerosis) which is a debilitating nerve disease. Rachel has been ill for many years, and this is why she asked to be killed off the show.

She hesitates to come to conventions because she thinks no one wants to see her ill, or in her wheelchair. Which I think, we can all agree, is completely wrong. Rachel is very loved amongst the SPN family, and I think it’s about time we show her that.

My goal with this project is for you all to send me messages you want to pass on to her. Just one or two sentences, signed with your name or leaving it anonymous. If you want to draw something, you can submit it to me and I’ll be happy to print it.

I’ll be gathering all your messages to her throughout April. The deadline is May 1st.

How to participate?
Send your message to me through INBOX, like this: “My message to Rachel is: (insert your message) and my name is (insert your name, or simply say anonymous)”

If you want to send an original art piece, submit it to me, with “The Rachel Miner Project - (insert your message if you have one) (your name/anonymous)” as your caption.

Deadline: May 1st 2017

I’ll be mailing all of this on May 3rd to her agency address. Let’s show her some love and support, okay?

Only two people in this photo may have survived the war, the boy in the foreground and the SS man holding the MG.

Warsaw Ghetto Uprising – Photo from Jürgen Stroop Report to Heinrich Himmler from May 1943. The original German caption reads: “Forcibly pulled out of dug-outs”.
An iconic image of World War II. People identified in the picture:
Identity of the boy in the front was not confirmed, but is possibly Artur Dab Siemiatek, Levi Zelinwarger (next to his mother, Chana Zelinwarger) or Tsvi Nussbaum.
Hanka Lamet – small girl on the left
Matylda Lamet Goldfinger – Hanka’s mother next to her (second from the left)
Leo Kartuziński – teenaged boy in the background with white bag on his shoulder
Golda Stavarowski – in the background, first woman from the right, with one hand raised.

Most were transported to the extermination camp Treblinka.

Tsvi Chaim Nussbaum (August 31, 1935 – July 2, 2012) was the only Holocaust survivor in his family, and is considered by some as being the boy in this photo.

Josef Blösche (12 February 1912 – 29 July 1969) was a member of the Nazi Party who served in the SS and SD during World War II. Blösche became known to the world as a symbol of the Nazi cruelty inflicted on people within the Warsaw ghetto because of a famous photograph taken during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising which portrays a surrendering little boy (possibly Tsvi C. Nussbaum) in the foreground, and Blösche as the SS man who is facing the boy with an sub-machine gun in hand.

He was finally identified (as in August 1946 he suffered a major accident at work, leaving the side of his face severely deformed) and arrested in January 1967.
Blösche was put on trial in Erfurt in April 1969. He was found guilty, including in participating in the shooting of about 1,000 Jews in 1943. He was sentenced to death, and executed in Leipzig on 29 July 1969.

I was curious, and decided to make Samson’s face look a bit healthier! Fixed his eye color as best I could, he had hazel looking eyes in DA2, and I added some color to his skin and lessened the red around his eyes and nose.

Capturing Fleeting Moments in Iowa with @hgrdrgz

For more in-the-moment photos from Hugo, follow @hgrdrgz on Instagram.

“#Hellomynameis Hugo Rodriguez (@hgrdrgz). I’m a 19-year-old aspiring photographer living in Iowa, but originally from the small town of Villachuato in the Mexican state of Michoacán. I always try to show something I may never see again, something someone else may never see. I mostly find this in nature and portraits. I upload the one that stands out the most to me, or that can tell a story and evoke an emotion just by looking at it.

I began taking photos when I was around 12 years old, and ever since have fallen in love with the art form, the creative process and being able to share stories through imagery. In my captions, I like to find a word or a phrase that fits the image perfectly. I’m always taking photos with my iPhone or DSLR camera — it’s honestly what I enjoy doing the most and seem to never get enough of it.

When I am struggling, I listen to music and pull out words directly from a song, or I turn to friends and ask them for advice. Our perspectives are very similar and we can spend hours talking about photography. I’m inspired by my friends and all young artists who dare to make a difference by being different. We, as young creators, are not the future of this world, we are the present.”

anonymous asked:

like i'm not trying to be rude you have your opinion and i just have a little bit of a hard time understanding your point but the thing is, these people all work hard on themes and we should never tell them that they should stop making them

Ok, im really hoping this is just coming from someone who isnt really 100% educated on what a redux edit really is. which is understandable, as over the years the actual meaning has become pretty vague and many bloggers who have joined within the last year or so dont even know what redux IS, so im going to try and be as detailed as possible.


Before we get into this, a quick note on base codes! base codes are considered open sources. in other words, the creator of the code gave explicit legal permission to anyone who wants to use it to do pretty much almost whatever they want with it (this varies from creator to creator). we will get into this later.


what the hell even is redux??

redux is a theme by jacob bijani, who is believed to have worked for tumblr for a while. redux used to be tumblrs default theme up until i believe around late june/july of 2014(?). for anyone who is a recent tumblr member, the current default theme is optica. many newer bloggers dont even know what redux is (whereas anyone who has been a member for a long time is perfectly familiar with it), which is part of the reason why the meaning of the word “redux edit” has become misconstrued.


ok, thats simple enough. so what does this have to do with redux edits?

good question. as the name implies, redux edits are an “edit” of the theme redux that we just covered. an edit is basically going in and editing the original coding. a couple of years ago, tumblr user kingies (now astrofuturism) released this theme (the one at the top, which i believe is the original but i could be wrong). this pretty much triggered a series of events, like the creation of reduxthemes, and then eventually the “official” redux edit tag. this theme is THE original redux edit. people liked the simplicity, and started making their own!


gotcha. so why is this a problem??

well, editing a theme isnt a problem! but the SECOND you “release” it for public use, thats where it gets messy. do you have permission from the original creator (jacob) himself? if not, thats theft. theres no ifs, ands or buts about it. plain and simple. you can put hours of effort into that theme and it can look AMAZING!!…… but if you made it using redux as a base code, thats a little something called unauthorized distribution. 

and heres the kicker: not a single person has gotten permission from the original creator of redux, jacob.

yes, thats theft. 

remember at the beginning where i made a brief mention about open sources? redux isnt open sourced. and is also considered tumblr property. you are redistributing a piece of non-open sourced copyrighted content. not to mention half the time, people dont even put in the effort to credit jacob!


ok, but what about redux edits that use other base codes or are original coding instead?

HERE is where it gets really complicated! over the years (yes, theyve been around for that long), the actual meaning behind the term “redux edit” has been seriously changed! 

many people make a theme that has a redux edit look to it (very simple usually, and customizable) and call it a redux edit. but is it really a redux edit? no, it may LOOK like one, it may be CALLED one, and it may even be in the redux edit tag, but its technically not. unless its using the theme redux as a base, its just another theme. the term “redux edit” has pretty much become a loosely used adjective to describe the general aesthetic of the simplicity that comes with actual redux edits and the original redux theme itself.


so what can i use??

when choosing a theme from the redux edit tag, its really important to pay attention. look in both the caption and the tags. does it say anywhere that the theme was made using a base besides redux? its not a redux edit, youre good to go! does the creator state anywhere that “this is not a redux edit” or “this is original coding”? if so, i hope theyre telling the truth because this is also ok!


ok, but i dont care if its stolen. i just want my blog to look good

youre a shitty person


a quick note about redux editors vs. theme makers

an excerpt from this post, “theme makers, who make stuff from scratch, tend to put days, even WEEKS into themes, get on average maybe a hundred. if youre EXTREMELY lucky, MAYBE 1000 notes. and in the end redux editors are treated like the holy grail while actual theme makers get the short end of the stick.” this really isnt fair, considering the fact that majority of the time all you have to do is slap the name “REDUX EDIT” on a theme, and its usually instantly successful. theme makers really do get ripped off for their hard work, to the point where many of them put their themes in the redux edit tag just for the publicity. and YES, this is a big deal! coding is just as difficult as drawing or writing, and is considered an art! its literally learning another language!! getting praised and recognized for your work is a HUGE deal, and motivates theme makers to release more great content! yay for more beautiful blogs!!


final notes

please treat your local theme makers well!! support those who deserve the publicity!! without us, youd be stuck using tumblrs nasty theme garden (no offense theme garden users). and if you have any questions, id be more than happy to answer them for you to the best of my ability.


so to answer your question….

yes, we should tell them to stop making them. if theyre TRUE redux edits, as in using redux as a base, this PROMOTES THEFT and normalizes it, something this community has enough of already. its not an opinion, its fact. redux edits are unauthorized redistribution of tumblr property, as well as someone elses (jacobs) intellectual property.

anonymous asked:

hi. "drop the ruse" journalist, JGS, makeup artist, stylists... could you explain? I'm sorry to bother you with this but you seem just. so. informative. lol xx

hi! I guess the only thing to explain, with the exception of the drop the ruse lady, all of those people have a connection to Sam and Cait. They know them personally and have released pictures or left comments on picture that hint at them having a RL relationship. Jon Gary Steele has faved a couple very obvious shipper tweets, like this one most recently, where Sam is definitely the one cropped out of the picture and this is most likely a vacation or trip they took as two couples.

And then makeup man, JC Mua, posted this picture from the Saks photoshoot in Dec and commented about the guy in the picture being Cait’s flame (and the guy is Sam) and then deleted the picture not long after:

But we also know this picture was never officially released as part of the Saks shoot once the IFH came out. Possibly because the original intent of the Saks shoot was a real life couples campaign but then they had to deny their relationship and that’s how we ended up with the intense focus on costumes instead. 

And theeen you have Michael Doyle, Cait’s hair stylist in Dublin, captioning his  picture with this:

Mrs????? And he regularly likes IG pics on the Balfe-Heughan account, which is 100% a shipper IG account but he may or may not think it’s like Sam & Cait’s joint account. Now why in the world would he think they have a joint account if they’re not together……
