I can never stop posting this. The narrow minded bible fanatics that just look at one small thing in the bible then feed the world with their hate over it. At the same time they ignore all the other silly laws made by man they claimed were made by god. These gif’s say it all.
Nothing more annoying then someone referring to the bible during a homosexuality debate, (to support why it is ‘wrong’) Just, get fucked.
- Performix Plasti Dip Create Your Color
- Super Glue
- miniature figures or letters (I found a good selection of these at AC Moore and my local Artist & Craftsman)
- glass mixing containers (a note on that below)
- a pack of toothpicks, coffee stirrers, or small paint brushes
- a craft knife
Step 1: Figure out how you want your miniatures set on the key, and glue them on. Be careful and quick when you’re placing them – the glue dries fast and strong, so you won’t get too much of a chance to reposition anything. When considering placement, make sure you leave space for a key hole if you intend to use a key ring.
Step 2: Mix your colors – the tints are VERY heavily pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Keep in mind that less is more, and only mix a drop or two at a time. For example, I made a pretty aqua using about 2 drops of blue, 1 drop of yellow (pictured), and a drop of white. You really don’t need much. Start small and add slowly as you need.
Step 3: Here’s where the Plasti “Dip” was a little misleading. Since you’re using miniatures, you don’t actually want to dip the keys. Rubberizer is really goopy and fills in holes, so if you dip, you could end up with little blobs instead of figures or letters. Instead, use a brush or – what I ended up using – a toothpick to carefully apply the colors. If you apply too much or it hides detail around the edges, you can use a craft knife to trace around your miniature for more detail before you put on a second or third coat. It’ll look a little weird at first, but just pull off any little nubs you don’t want and it’ll work itself out after a couple more coats.
Step 4: Let the Plasti Dip dry for at least 24 hours before using, and you’re set!
These channels are failing the spirit of conservationism and education. They are failing inspiring awe in young people. Failing much needed inspiration in a very confused and conflicted world.
These shows are failing their core values, their main purpose, which is leadership in environmentalism and cultural education. Far worse, they are failing millions of young people - millions - who look up to them.
Please join me in asking Discovery, Animal Planet, and the History Channels to stop, apologize, and correct.
That’s an important read up there, folks. These “reality” shows are feeding an outdated and unscientific view of predator species. These are channels founded on principles of education and conservation (TLC, of course, left the building years ago). Are they willing to sacrifice that for what appears to be gratuitous bloodsport?
Like any media, you can vote with your eyeballs. And if you support any kind of rights for wild animals and natural spaces, you can not support these programs. If the account above is true, shame on these networks.
It speaks to part of a larger issue with nature films. The amazing footage we see in shows like Africa, Planet Earth, and Frozen Planet is rarely the result of serendipity. It involves years of careful research and preparation to maximize the chances of capturing nature’s majesty on camera, and what is captured is highly edited to create story, drama and emotion. These are uniquely human interests, and nature doesn’t include them in her original script.
That’s not to say we are being fleeced all the time. People like Sir David Attenborough take these concerns very seriously, and constantly strive to find the balance between entertainment and true nature in every varying instance. What we watch is real. But is it REAL?
It’s always important to pack the bare essentials when it comes to cult classic movies. Alizee’s Movie Hipster Kit series distills several iconic films into their most memorable props, telling the story in just a few simple inanimate objects. You can request a print at hercurioospage.
