    SPENT is an online game about surviving poverty and homelessness. Players must make the difficult decisions necessary to live for one month on $1,000, often having to choose between equally disagreeable options. The game ends when players either run out of money before the end of the month or make it through with money left over.

Goblin Queen by soapybubbles3
I adore this portrait - it hints at all kinds of possible futures for Sarah, and I like that she looks strong and proud.

Damn.

    There needs to be a phrase for “I acknowledge your apology and appreciate it but it does not make things better.” instead of just saying “It’s okay.” all the time.

    What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

    Did you know that Monet stated that we wished he was born blind. Similarly, Picasso said that painting was a blind man’s profession, because blind people have a clearer vision of reality.

    So what is it about the blind that make artists from all around a tad bit jealous? 

    Scientists looked at famous painter Esref Armagon, a man blind from birth. His art hangs in museums all around the world. He can draw landscapes and scenery with precision. This is his art:

    Armagon went to a lab to have his brain scanned as he drew freehand. He was given objects to feel such as a toy or a cup and asked to draw them.

    What scientists found was amazing. His brain scan resembled a sighted person’s brain scan. 

    Although his no visual light reflected of his eyes and entered swept through his visual cortex, his visual cortex was buzzing with activity. 

    What was going on is that his visual cortex was recruited by other senses such as touch and hearing. Armagon was successfully able to translate touch into images in his mind.

    You think you’re going to be hip and teen forever and then suddenly you find yourself drinking red wine and playing board games and lusting after men with beards 

    I hit this point a lot sooner than I expected.

    I don’t think beards will EVER do it for me, but yes.
