James Byron Dean; Feb. 8th, 1931 - Sept. 30th, 1955

A star goes wild in the places beyond air — a dark star born of coldness and invisible. It hits the upper edges of our atmosphere and look! It is seen! It flames and arcs and dazzles. It goes out in ash and memory. But its after-image remains in our eyes to be looked at again and again. For it was rare. And it was beautiful. And we thank God and nature for sending it in front of our eyes. 
So few things blaze. So little is beautiful. Our world doesn’t seem equipped to contain its brilliance too long. Ecstasy is only recognizable when one has experienced pain. Beauty only exists when set against ugliness. Peace is not appreciated without war ahead of it. How we wish that life could support only the good. But it vanishes when its opposite no longer exists as a setting. It is a white marble on unmelting snow. And Jimmy stands clear and unique in a world where much is synthetic and dishonest and drab. He came and rearranged our molecules. - Stewart Stern


RIP you beautiful man, you died 59 years ago today and we’re still missing your stupid, beautiful face. 
(Also I didn’t know his middle name was Byron.  I didn’t think he could get any more perfect.)

The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes

via Animation Magazine:

  • 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
  • 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
  • 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
  • 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
  • 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
  • 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots

This movie is stunning. Some people say it’s light on story but I disagree, it was well paced with solid action and cinematic tension and it was brilliant. Go, support Laika. They deserve it.

this seems relevant to my interests

Maybe I’m just tapping into my angry, angry fourteen year old days, but I’m really digging Asking Alexandria’s sound.

this is probably the first gif of a megamouth shark Megachasma pelagios. enjoy it

also, is one of three recordings of this shy animal.  As of 2012 only 55 megamouth individuals are known and have been found all over the world, with most originating from the Pacific.

I love how it’s just checking out the diver in the first one, so serene!
