“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.
This is so great
i’m gonna break up with my bf if i have to deal with these one player games he jams to all day + night on his computer for much longer. so. what are some of your favourite two player (or more) games? i want to be included. before you begin i have some very boner killing news for you: i won’t play military themed shooter games, i won’t play side scrolling arcade style games (they don’t hold my attention i’m sorry), and i own enough racing games so none of that either.
the last game we played together until we got sick of it was sonic racing all-stars transformed, which is a damn near perfect game god bless it. but we moved on and i haven’t found a game i like as much as that one since then. oh yeah and we took turns on GTA V, but that’s passe.
and it would need to be for ps3, please. i know i’m particular as fuck but deal with me, i’m trying here.
Love takes work.
Wow, watching and aggregating all the #SFBatKid stuff today was so awesome. Watching Miles roam around his Gotham, awaiting the next heart-wrenching photograph, was one of the most joyful experiences I’ve had in a long, long time.
I saw it start popping up on my Tweetdeck— photos and tweets—, but for 10 to 15 minutes kept this little joy to myself, selfishly not telling the Beast editors.
Finally, when I knew I had to share what I was seeing, I quietly pitched it to an editor, striving to keep my voice from cracking with emotion. Well I wasn’t pitching them so much as telling them I was going to do this and they could run it or not. And then I was off, taking in everything I could find and dragging it into our Storify. At 4pm I realized I hadn’t eaten lunch but I didn’t care. Joyful tears prickled my eyes for hours.
It was the complete opposite of our work on the Newtown shooting and the Boston Marathon bombing, which were so, so difficult to monitor closely, but, for the worst reasons, came with similarly watery eyes.
Anyway, I just wanted to write this to thank Patricia Wilson, the San Francisco Make-A-Wish branch, the people of San Francisco, and Miles for letting me share just a sliver of pure goodness today. May such kindnesses make the news again soon.
