Devotion

A 9ft x 11ft Stained glass painting devoted completely to Harry Potter.

A replication of the North Rose window from Notre Dame, the images of Christianity have been replaced with images of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, along with a few Easter eggs from across the HP universe as well as ways one can devote themselves to Harry Potter. This window took me 3 and a half months to complete. It’s my pride and joy. I still don’t know how I did it.

okay, but get this:

after the dark (or: the philosophers), a movie from 2013

  • a philosophy class at an international school in jakarta
  • making a thought experiment in which they have to decide who of them is worthy enough to be saved from the apocalypse
  • 21 people in the cast
  • almost half of them (about 9–10) non-white
  • 50/50 male/female cast
  • calls out sexism and homophobia
  • includes one and a half super relaxed coming-outs as well as a gay sex scene (the only ~real~ one in the movie)
  • every character is intelligent, beautiful and mostly respectful of each other
  • plus it has baby george blagden in it

why aren’t we talking about this movie????
