Tough guys.

positivelyaustentatious:

 In Regency times postage for  letters was paid by the sheet of paper, so the usual amount for a letter was one quarto sheet (15” x 9”) - it was folded over to make two leaves, or four pages. To save money people ‘crossed’ their letter so they didn’t need to pay for an extra sheet - They wrote first one way then turned it  a quarter round and then the other.  There were no ready made envelopes, so the name and address was written in the middle of the fourth page and then the paper was then folded in three and sealed with wax or a small moistened blob of dried glue.

As the recipient paid for the letter, sometimes the writer would hide a small coin under the seal for use in payment.

Callum Keith Rennie rises from his chair exhaustedly, the weight of the world on his shoulders. You’d think he’s been asked to clean 100 toilets but in fact he’s just won a Genie. He’s very shy. Meanwhile, George Stromboulopoulos applauds sardonically. His date leans in to whisper in his ear. Probably she’s saying “Wow Callum has terrible manners.”

After his incredibly awkward acceptance speech, Dave Foley (hosting) said, “What an embarrassing display of emotion!” 

Production DesignConstantine (2005)

That was actually a combination of me and the visual effects supervisor and the production designer sitting down and sort of coming up with the biological growth that’s growing all over the cars and what that looks like and the color palette. And we started to look at the nuclear test films from the 1940s of the nuclear blasts and just decided that it would be great if the landscape was not only violent with these creatures, but also the atmosphere. So we decided that it was kind of an eternal nuclear blast except nothing ever really gets obliterated because it’s eternal and it’s constantly going. - director Francis Lawrence on the appearance of Hell; P.D. by Naomi Shohan

This Too Shall Pass (2012) by Tomorrow Machine

Independent packaging project for perishable goods:

Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.

Smoothie package
Gel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.

Rice Package
Package made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.

Oil package
A package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax do no longer protect the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.
