The leaf pictured at the top of this post isn’t a leaf at all. It’s made of paper and is an exquisite example of the Japanese art of papercutting is called Kirie (切り絵, meaning ‘cut paper’). All of the extraordinarily delicate examples of the Kirie seen here were handmade by a self-taught Japanese artist named Akira Nagaya, whose skills were first discovered about 30 years ago while he was working in a sushi shop.

"One of his first tasks was to learn sasabaran, a technique to create decorations by cutting slices into bamboo leaves. Back at home, and recalling his boss’s demonstration, Nagaya tried to practice using paper and a utility knife. He found that the technique came quite naturally, and he enjoyed doing it.”

Years later Nagaya was still making his intricate paper objects when he opened his very own restaurant and decided to display his kirie “for fun.” When a local newspaper showed up to review his restaurant they spotted his creations and encouraged him to display them in a gallery.

“That was the first time I even considered what I had been doing as art,” recalls Nagaya.

Head over to Akira Nagaya’s Facebook page to check out many more of his marvelous cut paper creations.

I keep seeing these videos with people in bathing suits and t-shirts, tank tops. For me personally, when I bring awareness to a charity, I prefer a more formal setting, so excuse me…

can we also note that in the middle gifs Bucky has proper trigger discipline and the fucking Winter Soldier has shitty TD so is it that Hydra made him give no fucks about gun safety because people are just collateral? I NEED TO KNOW IF THIS WAS INTENTIONAL ON SEB’S PART (via thescarlettfangirl)

this is an EXCELLENT POINT and I’m going to talk about it. in gun safety the first thing you learn is 1: do not ever point your gun at something unless you are going to shoot it and 2: do not ever put your finger on the trigger unless you’re going to put a bullet through something.

Bucky Barnes knows the importance of trigger safety. Bucky Barnes was trained by the US Army to never put his finger on the trigger unless he was going to absolutely shoot something

The Winter Soldier is a weapon. The only time the Soldier is ever given a weapon, he is absolutely going to shoot something.  It’s his mission. It’s all he does. Thaw, wipe, point, shoot, kill, freeze, repeat. It’s as natural to him as anything can be—a finger on the trigger and intent to kill on his mind

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Learning the Dance clip

(Source: bisexualblackwidow, via buckybarnesdaily)

Finished The Last of Us Remastered. Holy hell that was a gut-punch of a game. Lived up to all the hype I’ve heard in the past year, and that was a lot of hype. 

Now for a NG+ to get the collectible trophies and take screenshots.

Project: Winter Soldier
June 1954

Volkov’s man at MI-6, Parsifal, has proved his worth. The schematics for the Advanced Robotic Appendages and Attachment he provided two months past were revolutionary. Our science team finished a working prototype and attached it to the American without incident. With the new appendage in place, clearance was given for Department X to begin work on the Winter Soldier Project.

It has long been my plan to turn this American symbol back against our enemies. He was no aid to developing our own Super-Soldiers, but he will still be a valuable tool, in the right hands.

Ok, I’m probably the last one to notice this, but even if I am, I’m bringing it up again bc it’s very important and very sad and I need to cry about it.

I’ve seen this scene about 50 times now and not once did I bother to take a closer look at Bucky. Specifically, his eyes. I always thought he was looking at Schmidt or in the general direction of the two while I focused on Steve’s face and what was happening. Now, obv, Steve is looking at Schmidt bc he’s being confronted and all that. But look at Bucky. Compare his gaze in the 3rd gif to Steve’s. It’s not trained on Schmidt. He’s looking directly at Zola and his face looks like a mixture of fear, anger and like he’s gonna puke. All of which would make sense after you imagine the shit Zola put him through on that table before Steve showed up. Just try to imagine one scenario that could be happening in his head here. Like reliving the parts where they tortured him and experimented on him, slowly took away the control of his own mind, tried to take his memories so he had to keep reminding himself who he was and began the process of turning him into god only knew what. When Steve found Bucky, he looked like he had no idea what was going on around him. No awareness that the alarm went off, soldiers abandoning their posts, the doctors scurrying off to safety. He didn’t realize he was alone in the room and no one was looking after him anymore. He just repeated his name and number over and over again and if Steve hadn’t found him, he’d have went down with the building while completely lost to his surroundings. After Steve got him out I imagine he didn’t have much time to dwell on the things they did to him. Until now. Until he saw Zola’s face and it hit him like a truck and the result was that face above.
Little did he know that even if they do get out of here alive, he was eventually gonna end up right back where he was and Zola would get to finish what he started and if that doesn’t fuck you up…i don’t even. fuck this movie and fuck these characters i did not sign up for this pain

Am playing The Last of Us Remastered. First time playing, and it’s taken over my free time. 

Am now in a dark hallway illuminated only by my flashlight, up to my knees in gross green water, when suddenly like 500 rats scurry/swim towards me, screeching. They veer off. I go into a room and discover bullets for my rifle and several other rare loot items.

… something big is around that corner, right?

What did you name your dog/s in Dragon Age?

I’m just curious because I feel like our dogs don’t get enough attention.

I’va named mine Azazel, Barney, Leskling, Tulip, Couscous and Sweetheart~

I named my dog Harvey, Pickles, Gorim, Dane, Greagoir, and Tathas. Oh and my Mabari in DA2 was called Max for some reason.

Daryl, Loki, Garrus, Hiddles. And I’ve repeatedly named them those 4 names

Slug, Barkspawn, Banner, Ripper, Cat, and sometimes just Dog :/

Almost always Mass Effect characters — Kaidan, Garrus, Mordin, Jacob, Thane…

Well…since I named my Aeducan after Hervor the shieldmaiden, I named her dog after the magic sword, Tyrfing, being part of that cycle of stories. Added bonus, was made by dwarves.

As for my Hawke… my headcanon is she wanted to be a knight when she was young, and still likes to carry herself as such (or as much as Kirkwall will allow…) so I gave her mabari a name that fit the tone, Gallant.

…It also doubles as a super vague reference to one of my favorite games, Ogre Battle 64. The main character’s name was Magnus Gallant.

Fen’misu, Dane, Patter, Aragog, Chompy, Terf, Buffy

DAO: Indiana, Fenrir, Bitey, Lucky. DA2: Alistair, Garrus, Magic, Ser Dog.

Comtesse Elodie from the German Facebook page. In the German version she is voiced by Mháire Stritter of buffed.de. In Orlais a Comtesse is a noble title, lower than Marquise and higher than Baroness. Élodie is a French forename. I wonder if there is a reason the lower half of her face is covered, or if it is just awful Orlesian fashion. Remember that the upper half (eyes) of Lady Couteau’s face is covered. Also, I wonder where these images are being captures - the statues in the background are really interesting.

Hmph. Orlesians, darling.
