A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)

Reblog if you agree!
Although this reads more like a guide to ritualistic sacrifice, it’s actually a fairly decent guide on how to make a film. Especially the t-shirts part.

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.
Hey everybody, first original post in a while.
Last year I started a blog where I publish short stories. One or two every month or so (I’m committed, I swear), and just now I posted to latest one.
If you like the story, I’d encourage you to share the site and any stories you like.

Sarah Larson on discovering the music of Devon Sproule: http://nyr.kr/1tRGo2y
“Who was this? It wasn’t a revolutionary sound—it amazed me because it was great. An acoustic guitar, and then a young woman’s voice, warm, confident, gentle, singing, ‘It’s good to get out of the house.’ There was no barrier between it and me—I loved it immediately.”

I read this and immediately looked up her music. Best choice I’ve made in the past hour. Friedrichshain’s streets will rain with the sounds of this from my balcony tonight.
The hours between 12am and 6am
have a funny habit of making you feel
like you’re either on top of the world,
or under it.

i love cinematography more than i love my own family so here’s a list of 50 incredibly beautiful movies!! some of them are fantastic, some are so bad the cinematography barely redeems them, but they’re all worth watching. i tried to find the most high-quality streaming links available, but if you have a problem with shitty video quality you should probably just rent the dvd like a law-abiding citizen.
