“When I first saw it in the store two years ago, I laughed at it. Then I went back and bought it. It’s as if they tried to make a guitar so no one would have to have an effect pedal ever again. It’s got a repeater effect, a palm wah-wah and a ratty fuzz distortion sound. And when you play it, it sounds like an orchestra from outer space.”

spidey-loving-starkid  asked:

Peter Quill and Peter Parker are going to be in the same movie, and idk if the rest of the Avengers know Spidey's secret identity or not, but I imagine Quill might get really pissed off when everybody calls Parker "Spidey" or "Spider-Man" but NOBODY WILL [correctly] CALL QUILL STAR-LORD????!!!!

The thought of this warms my heart, god bless.

Especially because the only person who probably does get Quill’s name right, is Peter “You Are From Outer Space And That’s The Coolest Thing Ever” Parker.

the real question here is if baby Peter Quill went through a mohawk phase because of his blue space dad

or because his blue space dad would eat him if he didn’t

David Lynch

- Mulholland Drive

(2001)

Jon Neill, prop maker:

“The blue box was a really complicated piece that had to be machined. My business partner and I were working at Prop and Custom Inc. when we got Mulholland Drive. From what I recall, David did some of the first rough sketches, and then based off those, I did some more drawings. The script was pretty secret, [and] the scenes would be described loosely to us, like how Lynch wanted to see the box work – he had a vision and direction in his head. He wanted the box to appear otherworldly, with a weird key that would unlock a seamless box and the hinges needed to be inside the box, so that when it would finally open, the metal would have a clean look.

"We made a prototype version in the beginning that wasn’t working. Then we figured out a way to make it open where there were no hinges on the outside. The second box was just a cube with a key hole – no door – just smooth like the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. We had to make two versions of the box, so Lynch could get the different shots he needed, where the box was being examined closed and opened.                

"Both versions were either anodized aluminum, or they were painted to look like they had a deep auto-body color. The chunkier key was also aluminum. But Lynch didn’t want you to look at these and think, Oh, these are definitely made out of aluminum. Jim, the guy I worked with, was a custom hotrod guy, so he was very into candy paint and clear coats and stuff like that – stuff that would make the light bounce through, off the aluminum, and give it that otherworldly feel. There’s a luminescence to the blue that’s on those props. I would say there’s probably 1/16 of an inch of paint on the boxes – enough that if you held it in the light, you’d be like, Oh man, that pops!                

 "Watching the movie afterward to see how he restructured whatever it was that he had in his mind, it was like trying to come to grasp with, Did the blue box come from outer space? Was it an inter-dimensional thing? Or was it some kind of life force? I am as close to having any answers about the meaning of the box as every single person who’s seen the movie – even though I’ve worked on it and had it described to me.”                

what she says: i’m fine

what she means: i don’t know tessa, i just did. this thing was from outer space, ok? so i shot it, you see i had to shoot it because yes, it was something like a boar. it was a foreign object but it was too foreign for me to trust. back on earth, god, god i miss earth. why has god forsaken us god?! we are in these trenches, the stars are for you. why can’t you take us home?!??!

The other night I had a dream that I went to outer space to single-handedly save the world from something (?). When I got back, the mayor of my town gave me the key to the city and the US government paid me 9 million dollars. First thing I did after I got back from outer space was go to my credit union to deposit the check. “I know it’s a big check, but I just got back from outer space, soooo….” 🚀🌟✨💫
What’s a weird dream that you’ve had?

The Path Of The Water Witch 

Water Witches are sometimes called Sea Witches, but many of them find a calling with inland creeks, rivers, and lakes. It is rare for them to limit themselves to any one type of body of water. They generally align with all forms, including rain.

In most mythologies, human sprang from the Earth, but the gods themselves came from water. Egyptian theory states that the sun god Re was born from the primordial waters. Today, scientists can back that theory, NASA scientists theorize that water exists in heavy quantities in the universe. It works as a coolant. The water vapors in outer space for the condensing of clouds. Once a cloud condenses enough, it becomes a star.

Water reflects, the Water Witch does the same. If you yell at her, she will yell back at you. If you are kind to her well, she will be kind and treat you well in return. She is very fair. She shares many qualities with her sister Earth Witch, as the Earth is 90 percent water. Among those qualities is the core belief of taking complete responsibility for her actions. The Water Witch accepts that every move she makes can cause ripples across the surface of the water and moves accordingly.

Water is considered a feminine force, and the Water Witch may prefer an alliance with the Goddess, all the while recognizing and maintaining that the God is within the Goddess. She cans sometimes relate closely to Dianic Witches in this preference.

The Water Witch can see things that those on other paths cannot. In fact, the human sense of sight belongs in her realm. Just as the seas teem with life that we have yet to discover and understand, the Water Witch know s that there is much more to our world than what is within our eyesight! While she can be highly superstitious, for the most part she simply knows that there is more just waiting to be discovered, as well as some things that humanity has known about and forgotten over the ages. The old phrase “out of the blue” speaks volumes about the ability of the Water Witch to tune in to her intuition. She is often very gifted in divination practices. Tarot is usually her divinatory tool of choice, but she also has a talent for dowsing.

The Water Witch sees little that she considers an obstacle. She understands that her fate is in her hands, and if she cannot flow through something, she will flow around it. Once her mind is made up, very little can stop her from obtaining what she wants. Because water exists in three forms on Earth, The Water Witch can be considered a formidable force. She will not admit to any weaknesses.

The Water Witch has a close link to the feminine side of nature. She understands reproduction and is akin to her sister Earth Witch in this manner as well. Menstruation falls in the realm of the Water Witch. Because of this, she is instrumental in moon-lodge practices and coming-of-age rites. Her sister Earth Witch may focus more on the rebirth cycle, while the Water Witch is more in touch with creation.

The Water Witch specializes in healing, cleansing, beauty, emotions, intuition and energy. Her magickal style is usually based on instinct. If the feeling hits her to perform a cleansing, she will. She does not necessarily worry about correspondences and timing. Her timing is completely her own–she will not be rushed by others into decisions or action. Schooled in water magick, ice magick and snow magick, the Water Witch can tell you all about the role of water in the metaphysical and physical realms.

Winter is the season when the Water Witch’s power is at its peak. She holds within herself the ability to transform fluidity to solid form during the winter, the same way that water turns to ice. It is during this season that the Water Witch should turn her view inward and evaluate her goals. She often redefines herself through the process. Because of this, a Water Witch grows stronger every year. She understands that just as dry ice is sticky, it is her role to hold thing together.

Throughout the winter months, the Water Witch is abnormally busy, even for her active lifestyle. Because she is at her highest power and incarnated in all three of her forms during these months, she may be short of temper. When you add to that the fact that artificial heat (fire, an evaporating influence on water) is usually pumped into the home during this time and families tend to be cooped up in the same space, you may have one cranky, stressed-out Water Witch on your hands. She longs for room to spread out and flow. A simple snowfall can ease her mind and soothe her spirit; she draws strength from it. If that is not an option, a long bath or a cup of hot tea usually helps. Rest assured that if you visit her in the winter months, she will be a very gracious hostess, regardless of the timing. The Water Witch is known for her generous hospitality.

Her home décor is usually unthemed, with whimsy being the main rule. The Water Witch may have a quirky collection of glass objects, prisms (she tends to like sparkly things), tons of throw pillows and an aquarium. Cool blues and greens are often primary colors in both her wardrobe and her home.

Due to her busy lifestyle, the Water Witch frequently has to let the housework slide somewhat. Although she prefers all things to be clean, she also understands that there must be “salt in the sea.” In other words, a small amount of dirt is inevitable, and she is able to live with that comfortably. She absolutely cannot stand clutter, though. It drives her to distraction.

Another common trait of the Water Witch is a quirky sense of humor. It simply cannot be defined. Some of the things she says seem to come from outer space in their relation to the topic, yet they can make you laugh as nothing else will. This is intentional–the Water Witch is lighthearted. But just when you begin to think she has never had a deep thought in her life, she will prove you wrong. When it comes to serious conversation, the Water Witch can often put her finger on an aspect of the situation that the other Elemental Witches do not see. The Water Witch is very wise.

Like her mythical brethren the mermaids and water nymphs, the Water Wise tends to love long hair. She may keep it pulled back in a ponytail due to a lack of time, but she lets it grow nonetheless. The effects that water has on the body are directly in line with the metaphysical attributes of the Water Witch. Usually beautiful, she is often younger looking in appearance than in age and has a long memory and attention span and bright, shining eyes.

Because the Water Witch always considers every side of an argument before making up her mind, she may be slow to assume a position. Rest assured that when a Water Witch states her opinion., it has been well thought out. She open-minded and fair. Her strength lies in her dual nature an a ability to see the points or view of others. And like water, she will find her way into all of the small nooks and crannies of a situation. She may initially choose an answer based on instinct but if new facts come to light, she will often change her mind. She is flexible.

Those on the water path often find a calling in helping others. They make wonderful therapists, psychiatrists, obstetricians, pediatricians or service personnel. Often people are attracted to their soothing nature and come to them for advice. Like a waterbed, a reflecting pool , or a relaxing bath, Water Witches project an aura of serenity and comfort.

The Water Witch may be seen as moody, but like the sea herself, she is often in motion. She rarely slows down. She is full of energy and always on the go. And like the sea, her moods swing with the tides. The moon holds sway over the tides, and one can easily draw a parallel between the moon and the Water Witch’s emotional patterns.

whore-o-ween  asked:

Do you know how much human saliva it would take to kill a bird? I'm pretty good about keeping my bird out of my mouth but every once in a while he'll shove his head in when I'm talking or something.

I hope it’s okay that I post this! Not all of this is directed at you, but is meant to inform bird keepers in general. :) I think it’s super admirable of you to be dedicated to learning more for your bird’s sake! :D

HUMAN SALIVA
: I don’t know if human saliva has been known to kill pet birds the rapid way cat saliva (or dog, to a somewhat lesser extent) can. The risk from human saliva is from possibly giving them a yeast or bacterial infection if they ingest it, since we have a ton of critters living in our mouths (a bit gross perhaps, but true). Now of course, many birds have had either accidental or intentional exposure to ingesting human saliva over the hundreds of years of keeping pet birds and have lived, but sometimes the bacteria/yeast will take hold due to any number of factors. The bacterial or yeast infections, if left unchecked, can make them very ill and susceptible to other infections, or just outright kill them. Birds with weakened immune systems are most susceptible… but unfortunately birds hide illness so well that we often don’t know anything is going on until they are quite ill and start to show visible signs.

TINY SYMPTOMS ARE A BIG DEAL: As an aside, this is why if you suspect illness in a pet bird, it often means that it’s to the point that it’s serious, and a vet visit is in order. A short story: I have a parrot that I love with every atom in my heart, and this past spring she developed a raging infection (later determined to originate in her esophagus; the likely ate something that scratched it a bit and infection set in opportunistically). She didn’t show a single symptom, and in fact had been in for a complete wellness vet visit only about three months prior… until one evening she started passing blood from her vent. If we didn’t rush her to the emergency vet she surely would have died. It was a near thing, and seemed to have no warning because she hid it so well. She was in a bird ICU (really) for 4 days, followed by two months of medication and follow up tests, and is doing well now. Most birds don’t give an obvious sign such as passing blood; most just start to act a little “off”, sleepy, lethargic, etc. If she had shown any of these other symptoms instead, and I had opted to wait and see how she was doing, she probably would have died. By the way, this was intensely expensive, and why I keep a portion of my savings account dedicated just to vet bills. If you’d told me a week earlier than the Event that I’d be spending outrageous amounts to save my bird’s life the next week I’d have been shocked. This stuff always seems to happen at the least convenient times too!

In closing: Just use care and try to prevent him from like, licking your lips or teeth or something, or sharing food with him that you just bit off of, etc. I used to have a male cockatiel that would immediately and without warning shove his whole gosh dang head in my mouth if I yawned, but fortunately he just wanted the echo chamber to sing into and didn’t go in for a taste and didn’t brush his feathers against my mouth. Boy cockatiels often have a thing for singing into objects!
I won’t even mention the nutty things the caiques I’ve taken care of have done. Caiques are from outer space.

Things that certain Transformers fans think are perfectly normal things for alien robots from outer space to be:

  • Animals, such as jaguars, condors, lions, wolves, and dinosaurs
  • Robots who split apart into two alternate modes
  • Robots who use other robots for guns, swords, or even their heads
  • Robots who eat other robots
  • Robots who get sick
  • Robots who eat entire planets
  • Robots that combine with each other
  • Robots that can copy or clone themselves at will

Things that certain Transformers fans think are strange things for alien robots from outer space to be:

  • Girls
