Tumblr doesn’t like big gifs so here is a sad screenshot. Twitter has the full thingy. Probably the two most request features from the first demo were control changing and controller support. Both are working now. The menus feel really good with the controller. Yay.

Christmas tree worms by Robert_Smits Christmas tree worms in the Philippines.

The worm is aptly named, both its common and Latin names refer to the two chromatically hued spiral structures, the most common feature seen by divers. The multicolored spirals are highly derived structures for feeding and respiration.

Spirobranchus Gianteius Peniez is similar to most tube-building polychaetes. It has a tubular, segmented body lined with chaeta, small appendages that aid the worm’s mobility. Because it does not move outside its tube, this worm does not have any specialized appendages for movement or swimming.

The worms’ most distinct features are two “crowns” shaped like Christmas trees. These are highly modified prostomial palps, which are specialized mouth appendages. Each spiral is composed of feather-like tentacles called radioles, which are heavily ciliated and cause any prey trapped in them to be transported to the worm’s mouth. While they are primarily feeding structures, S. giganteus also uses its radioles for respiration; hence, the structures commonly are called “gills.”

One major difference between Christmas tree worms and the closely related sabellida fan worms is that the latter do not have any specialized body structures to plug their tube holes when they withdraw into them. S. giganteus, like other members of its family, possess a modified radiole, usually called the operculum, that it uses to secure its hole when withdrawn into its tube.

As an annelid, S. giganteus possesses a complete digestive system and has a well-developed closed circulatory system. Like other annelids, these worms possess well-developed nervous systems with a central brain and many supporting ganglia, including pedal ganglia, unique to the Polychaeta. Like other polychaetes, S. giganteus excrete with fully developed nephridia. When they reproduce, they simply shed their gametes straight into the water where the eggs (and spermatozoa) become part of the zooplankton to be carried by the currents. (Wikipedia)

poi playlist

so i’ve had a few messages about this playlist that i mentioned earlier… And so i was thinking about creating a post with all the songs that are in the show that i like and listen to, and then on top of that once i’ve posted it i would get people to comment/message me other songs from the show that they like that may not necessarily be on my personal playlist so then we end up getting a massive POI playlist featuring most if not all the songs featured on the show that people like and so it will be a great reference for songs featured on the show along with what episode they were in, etc.

Anyone down for this? I’ve got some time between my class work so… yeah. Message/reply/reblog and what not if you’re into this idea!!

True of any of my OCs but Kamil sure looks slightly different every time I draw him;; A reminder, if you couldn’t tell already, Kamil is a lawful-evil villain; a horribly aggravating antagonist who torments anyone and everyone below his station, just for the hell of it…and looks real fucking good while doing it 🌹⚰🌹

Hey if people who don’t like the dub could stop reblogging my post with tags and comments about how much they hate the dub as well as adding things like “Shut the fuck up the dub sucks I hate it”, that would be much appreciated.

Cause here’s the thing about dubs, they’re never gonna be perfect and some are worse than others. But the dub of Yuri on Ice, whether you feel it’s well done or not, is important. As I stated in a previous post, most series that feature LGBT characters or non-hetero relationships aren’t handled with the same amount of effort and respect as other series. A prime example would be No.6. The voice acting was mediocre and the dub as a whole felt lazy. It’s obvious that it was rushed out and the the team and actors weren’t totally invested. Compare that to the obvious amount of time and work they put in to Yuri on Ice. Yes the voices aren’t perfect but when you watch a sub first, I think it’s almost impossible to think dubbed voices are perfect.

In America (where the dub is recorded) we don’t have the same censorship as Japan when it comes to gay relationships. They have been very blunt and straightforward in terms of Victor and Yuri’s relationship in the dub and have changed several lines to more literal translations because they don’t have to worry about censorship. It’s obvious too that the actors are giving this series their all and are invested in it, which is so rare to see and hear in a series featuring LGBT characters.

Supporting this dub also helps show the anime distribution and licensing companies that we want to see the same care and effort in shows featuring gay couples as we see in shows featuring hetero couples. There isn’t enough quality representation in the anime industry and supporting both dubs and subs helps show we want more!

Also, dubs are important as a whole because they make anime accessible to people who struggle with reading, or who are visually impaired, or have anxiety. My friend has high anxiety and she can only watch dubs because trying to read the subs and watch the show at the same time used to overwhelm her. My brother has dyslexia and he prefers dubs because he doesn’t have to worry about trying to keep up with the quick changing subs.

So yeah please stop adding that you hate the dub because it’s important. It’s not the best, but it is important

゚・:,。★·͙⁺˚*•̩̩͙✩Captain America: The Mock Poster Project✩•̩̩͙*˚⁺‧͙★,。・:・゚
                                 THE WINTER SOLDIER

I don’t think I properly introduced this project, but here’s me, recreating famous (romantic) movie posters with the Captain America characters. The hope is to create one for each movie of the trilogy.   as opposed to 6 billions for the Winter Soldier and none for Civil War because SO MANY CHARACTER
Each poster is gonna feature the most iconic Stucky line of each movie (”Not Without You”, “I’m With You Till The end of The Line”, and possibly “Your Bucky”), and credits as similar as possible to the *actual* Captain America poster.
Today’s choice was Titanic (1997) by James Cameron.
It was my first pick, and I never wavered (even if I *might*, if time allows, work on my second and third pick, too). And the more I think about it, the better it fits. The sinking ship. The lovers separated by catastrophe. 

*Here you can find my tumblr post and art for Captain America: THE FIRST AVENGER based on Gone with the Wind (1939)


You can find the art on my Society6 shop here. I decided to post here a version cropped to look as similar as possible to the Titanic poster I used as base. Buuuuuuuut S6 requires square canvas for several gadgets, so the shop contains both this version and also a second, bigger one showing more of the art (the whole helicarrier, the whole shield and other such details.)

PROBOSCIDEANS

Whilst we all know that modern elephants are beautiful and remarkable creatures, few may be familiar with the order of which they are from, Proboscidea. Proboscidea not only contains the elephantids, but a whole range of diverse mammals, some reaching magnificent sizes and each one more intriguing than the last.

Deinotherium 

Deinotherium quite literally means “terrible beast” and they trawled the savannah-like Miocene landscape. Deinotheriums most striking feature is certainly its menacing downward facing tusks, a complete skull found in the nineteenth century measured at just under a metre in length, the skull also showed very deep nasal bones suggesting it had a much wider and shorter trunk than modern elephants. The reason for the unusual orientation of the tusks has been debated, perhaps they were purely for attracting mates or maybe they had a vital role in stripping tree bark to eat. Deinotherium was quite a bit larger than modern elephants standing a whopping 4 metres tall (almost as tall as a double decker bus) and weighing in at an estimate 11-14 tonnes.

Palaeoxodon namadicus 

Palaeoxodon namadicus, otherwise known as the Asian straight-tusked elephant lived during the pleistocene. Little is known about these species and whether it is a species on its own rather than a subspecies within Palaeoxodon antiquus, yet is is known from a thigh bone over 5 foot in length which indicates a possible height of over 4.5 metres which would make Palaeoxodon namadicus the largest land mammal to have ever existed surpassing Deinotherium and Paraceratherium.

Gompotherium 

Gompotherium is another highly unusual member of the proboscidea. Gompotherium stood around 3 metres high and had 4 tusks extending straight from its jaw, the two bottom tusks are flattened and shovel-shaped leading to suggesting that they were used in digging and finding food. Gompotherium is believed to be the first of the proboscideans to escape its homeland and migrate towards north america, mammoths would eventually evolve from the shovel-tusked creature. Although they are unfamiliar to most, they were very successful and flourished in north america for over 10 million years (during the miocene and pliocene). Their demise coincides with the rise of todays modern elephants, perhaps they were outcompeted to extinction.

Stegodon

Stegodon stood at around 3.5 metres tall and weighing in a 12 tonnes, however it is not this beasts size that is hard to comprehend, but its enormous tusks which could reach a whopping 3 metres in length. Stegodons thrived in the golden age of elephants 11 million years ago, exactly when they died out is a mystery, some believe they contained to roam across north america as little as a few thousand years ago.

Mammoths

Mammoths are amongst the most recognisable prehistoric creatures, they were extremely successful and thrived during the ice age thanks to their masses of fur, migration patterns and small ears. They died out around 4500 years ago when the ice age came to an end, although it is widely thought that humans contributed to their reduction in numbers as we fed on their meat, wore their fur and used their immense tusks and skin for shelter. The largest known species of mammoths could reach 4 metres in height and weigh up to 7 or 8 tonnes and they travelled in herds much like modern elephants. Incredibly well preserved specimens have been found across the world in peat bogs and permafrost preserving skin, hair and some organs in immaculate condition, this has led to multiple projects hoping to bring back the mammoth, although this is still highly controversial.

Elephants

All modern elephants are the only relic from the glorious evolutionary history of the proboscideans that we have left. They can reach 4 metres in height and weigh up 7 tonnes. Their tusks are used in competing for mates as well as for feeding and the trunks, perhaps the most recognisable feature of any animal, are analogous to human hands, they are used to grab things, communicate and sense their environment. Elephants travel in close herds led by a matriarch and have been shown to display emotions of grief when a valued member dies, their social structure is incredibly sophisticated and complex, when a matriarchs reign is over, their is a specific order of individuals to take her place, usually the eldest daughter. Separate families of elephants have even been known to form bonds with each other and socialise in passing.
Elephants have long been attractive to humans, their skin has been sold, their tusks highly valued for decoration and medicine. Elephants have been relentlessly hunted by humans, so much so that in in the twentieth century their numbers declined by 74% in ten years. Over the last few decades multiple conservation efforts have been put in place to save these magnificent creatures from extinction, their population numbers have shown slight increases since the efforts began.

The proboscideans have been, and are still, one of the most remarkable groups in the animal kingdom. They have been incredibly successful since their first appearance over 40 million years ago, with only the elephants remaining we must save these wonderful animals from extinction for future generations to see and to continue the reign of one of the most spectacular dynasties in the animal kingdom.

6125. There is a YouTube channel called “SuperMetaFails” dedicated to public recordings of superheroes doing epic fails. Some of the videos include Superman accidentally shattering a window with a sneeze and Wonder Woman tripping over her own Lasso. Much to the annoyance of the League, the Titans are some of the most featured heroes. Popular videos of them include Aqualad trying to dive into frozen water but not breaking through, Starfire face-planting from a 3 story height, Beast Boy farting at a public commemoration and Kid Flash accidentally running off a cliff and having to be saved by Raven. The channel has yet to get video of any of a Bat Family member, since they mainly work in the shadows. Robin is annoyingly smug about this fact, but the others know it’s only a matter of time.

Greek Gold and Garnet Bracelet, Hellenistic, 2nd Century BC

The most distinctive feature of this bracelet or armlet is the treatment of the outer surfaces of the hoops. Decorative elements are covered with a delicate network of filigree created by placing parallel rows of wire in a zigzag pattern and dotting the points of contact with granules. This unusual decoration is best paralleled in a few exceptional works from Thessaly. It is a rare forerunner of a popular kind of Roman bracelet featuring twisted hoops and hinged box settings decorated with gemstones.
