What I think about things

Casa Tomada Rafael Gómez Barros

"The urban interventions are meant to represent displacement of peasants in his native Columbia [sic] due to war and violence, themes that resonate in one form or another in any country his work is displayed in. Crafted from tree branches, fiberglass, and fabric, the 2 foot ants are particularly striking when seen clustered aggressively on facades of buildings.”

I will always reblog giant ants.

This is truly terrifying.

The finally of this season of Person of Interest was good. I found the mock trial a bit odd, seeing how it seems like many rights were thrown out the window and the defendants never actually got their lawyer to help them. When John Greer revealed that he had created vigilance for the express purpose to make the government want Samaritan to go online it wasn’t that big of a shock but a pretty good touch. I think that the character of John Greer has been given way to much power from a writing sense. I’ve seen as the power level of the show has risen through out the seasons, but It’s just funny that he’s always 10 steps ahead of a computer that has predicted countless things. I guess if Finch really wanted to do what Greer had done with his global market he probably could have seeing how he’s supposed to be a billionaire or something similar. 
Overall I was quite satisfied with the ending of this season and look forward to what comes next for the 7 people saved from Samaritan’s eye. How will the machine fight back. Will the ethics Finch coded into the machine hold up? How will they unite the gang? And once they take down this threat… what could possibly top it… or will they just fight Samaritan for the next 3 seasons.

Penny Dreadful is a period supernatural drama set in London at the turn of the 20th century, when Frankenstein, Dracula and other monster type tales where written. 
I found the first episode thoroughly entertaining with its heaping serving of gritty supernatural. I normally don’t like period pieces as much as modern or future but this did an awesome job of getting me enticed and hooked. I like that Vanessa Ives is a takes no shit type of character and look forward to seeing her in action.  Ethan Chandler is also interesting, obviously skilled but not wanting to do much with it other than perform, when faced with the supernatural he seems to turn and run, but due to it being a show we all know he’ll be back. Malcom and Dr. Frankenstein are also interesting.
All in all I think Showtime has something very interesting here, and look forward to next week.

This last shot reminds me of Grim Fandango where the way to kill the calavera was to sprout them, turning them into flowers.

This is awesome, disappointed it doesn’t ship to the UK though!

I stopped by the post office this morning to double check weight on stuff, and since there’s an easy online form for customs (at least I hope it’s as easy as it looks) I’ve gone ahead and opened the listings up for international shipping!

The next thing for me to look into is whether I should accept Paypal/what their fees are (because, usually, I avoid Paypal whenever I can). 

Awesome!

This picture is filled with awesome. I don’t know who made this and a google image search comes up with a broken Russian site it seems.
