viα samtrak: Les Catacombes - Paris 2012
400 ft below the surface of Paris exists one of the scariest and coolest places on earth. The bones of over 6 million people are still interred here. Now they are organized and placed respectfully, but in the beginning the officials of Paris were just cleaning up the surface of the city by dumping the remains from full graveyards into the old rock quarries that built the city. Spooky! Great place to pop the question to your girlfriend!All of the photos in this set were long exposures with no flash. If you ever get to go, don’t forget the remote and/or tripod!
For my photography class I did series of self-portraits in which I attempted to portray culture and counterculture for the past 10 decades. This is the product of that idea…
this is SO COOL oh man
So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.

My blog is eyes. Eyes and Xs. This was a poor decision.
Listen carefully to what Mary says: “people like Magnussen should be killed, that’s why there are people like me”. She’s the type of person who kills people like Magnussen. And what type of person is Magnussen? According to Sherlock he is ‘the Napoleon of blackmail' who runs the Western world from Appledore, using the “greatest respository of sensitive and dangerous information anywhere in the world”. And as long as Magnussen has that information “the personal freedom of anyone you have ever met is a fantasy”. He’s not a very nice person, in fact, he’s a pretty nasty guy who turns Sherlock’s stomach. When Magnussen flicks John’s face at Appledore he tells him “I know who Mary hurt and killed. I know where to find people who hate her. I know where they live. I know their phone numbers. I could phone them right now and tear your whole life down.” He could set these people on Mary, and they obviously wouldn’t call the authorities to have her arrested and properly tried in a court of law. They would hunt her down and kill her. Probably not very nicely, because they are not-very-nice people. So Mary may be right, people like Magnussen should be killed; that’s why there are people like her.
Who else has killed someone?
and then justified it as the killing of a not-very-nice person who deserved to die?
Remember that when John shot the cabbie Sherlock was voluntarily taking the pill - he wasn’t being coerced. This means that John cannot avail himself of the “defense of other” defense to murder (akin to self-defense except that the homicide is committed to defend the life of another person, not yourself). Sherlock confirms this when he tells John that he wasn’t really going to take the pill (true, John doesn’t believe this, but he does acknowledge that Sherlock was voluntarily risking his life to prove he was clever, because that’s how he gets his ‘kicks’). John actually committed murder that night and then threw the murder weapon in the Thames. Nevertheless, we love it when they giggle at the crime scene and then go off to dinner together.
Also remember that after John shoots the cabbie Sherlock tortures him to force him to reveal Moriarty’s name telling him “you’re dying, but there’s still time to hurt you”.
Finally, remember who actually does kill Magnussen:
So don’t be too judgmental of Mary. Both John and Sherlock have committed murder to save each other. I don’t hear anybody criticizing them for doing this - in fact they are praised for doing so. So why the double-standard when it comes to Mary? Is it because we don’t know her back-story? Sherlock has deduced that Mary was an intelligence agent, but he does not know what country she was serving. By her blonde hair I suppose we are to assume she is Russian, but that could be a red herring. Sherlock trusts her, maybe, because, like him, she is on the ‘side of the angels’, even if she isn’t one herself.
The fandom shouldn’t complain when John Watson’s wife turns out to be an assassin, because if the fandom likes Sherlock Holmes, and the fandom likes John Watson, then it is, indeed, what the fandom likes.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! THANK YOU!!
well, i don’t know the girl in the “don’t support fag marriages” picture, but i did come across this:
and i feel really bad that she’s getting so much hate for a simple misunderstanding. i’m not tumblr famous or anything, so this probably won’t go too well, but i’m trying to get the word out because i feel bad for this girl. thanks
Signal boost the fuck out of this, someone who didn’t do anything wrong doesn’t deserve hate.
