when people of color become main characters, fandom rushes in to coo over white side characters because wow they are so much more interesting… (charlotte in the prince and the frog, stiles in teen wolf)

when people of color become romantic interests or are considered shippable by any facet of fandom, the rest of fandom shuts that down real quick because its not realistic (like with abbie from sleepy hollow), characterization clashes suddenly matter (tvd’s bonnie bennett or true blood’s tara thorton), or fandom is certain the character is more empowered foregoing romance entirely (mako mori from pacific rim.)

when people of color become villains? shit. don’t even try it. because fandom couldn’t sympathize with a black or brown characters tragic back story to make even their most ridiculous crackships come true.

Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts

Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.


the amazing thing about mandalas is that they never last, because they are made of sand they are just temporary to show the buddhist teaching that we can appreciate and respect beautiful materialistic things, but we should not get attached to them and allow them to disappear

i think feminism is really great and important but some people on this website use it as an excuse to be absolute dickwads to boys and it seems like they are striving for dominance, not equality.

I did a lot of research on how she would be actually dying in this circumstance, so I had to bear that in mind. So, as she was dying and she had her last breath, I was saying my lines and I kept saying, “I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you.” And I remember one of the producers came over and said, “Please don’t say that because she loves Isaac.” [But] I do feel like Allison still loves Scott. And I think in that moment, she said she loves him because that’s still there. So it was hard for me to hold back those feelings because as an actor, I feel like that’s still there. So I don’t know how it’s going to turn out, but it was interesting for me as an actor because I so strongly felt the urge to say it to him even though she wasn’t supposed to. So that was interesting. —

(I’m sorry I can’t hear you over the fact that SHE made the decision. That she got to decide who she loved in the end, not the writers.)

people who laugh so hard at their own jokes that they can’t even finish the joke because they’re laughing so hard are my favorite kind of people

have you ever brought up a topic like ableism or misogyny or cissexism around people you love and trust and just seen the boredom and exasperation and ‘here we go again’ in their eyes and suddenly felt a little bit less safe
