“The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees … The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there. He fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn’t anything there.” - John Hughes
i always wondered what the fuck this scene was about
Art and its ability to move a mind. I always figured Cameron was having his mind blown by the complexity of what he was seeing. That a big picture is formed from a million seemingly random dots. That he is the big picture and also a fragment of it. Because Cameron is so very afraid that there is nothing for him in life, but here he gets a glimmer of context for his experiences. He’s a dab of green next to a dab of orange that makes no sense but is in fact part of something bigger.
Freakin’ great movie. Love this scene.
Norwegian artist Markus Moestue transformed three humble bicycles into this ferociously awesome Dinocycle. The dinosaur’s body, which is modeled after a Coelophysis, was carved out of polystyrene and coated in fiberglass. After completing his creation, Moestue took his creature for a ride around southern Norway.
According to VG News the raptor bicycle is now up for sale. The bids immediately began rolling in, however Moestue isn’t really concerned with how much money people are wiling to offer. He’s much more interested in finding someone who wants to do something particularly interesting with this wonderfully unusual bike.
For all those people who want to duel with dinos. Or freak out their dogs.

Captain Rocket #1, November 1951
I like how she appears to be reaching for the knife she’s hidden inside her boot. With the look she’s shooting him, I’m pretty sure his oxygen hose is about to be mysteriously cut.
Okay, reblogging for Bagel and Cookie.
Not craft-related! An out-of-character Stephen Colbert gives some pretty spectacular advice to teenage girls. Love this.
