My headcanon is that when Tenzin was young he spent a lot of time alone immersed in his studies.
Meanwhile Oogi was the calmest calf of the bison litter and often kept away from his agitated siblings. One day he came near the young airbender and stood there, laid beside him. Even though he didn’t understand a word, he found Tenzin’s voice soothing, Tenzin realized that and made a a habit of reading for him,
The bond between them grew from that. Tenzin gained not only a calm companion but also a lifelong friend.
Tweenbots by Kacie Kinzer:
Given their extreme vulnerability, the vastness of city space, the dangers posed by traffic, suspicion of terrorism, and the possibility that no one would be interested in helping a lost little robot, I initially conceived the Tweenbots as disposable creatures which were more likely to struggle and die in the city than to reach their destination. Because I built them with minimal technology, I had no way of tracking the Tweenbot’s progress, and so I set out on the first test with a video camera hidden in my purse. I placed the Tweenbot down on the sidewalk, and walked far enough away that I would not be observed as the Tweenbot––a smiling 10-inch tall cardboard missionary––bumped along towards his inevitable fate.
The results were unexpected. Over the course of the following months, throughout numerous missions, the Tweenbots were successful in rolling from their start point to their far-away destination assisted only by strangers. Every time the robot got caught under a park bench, ground futilely against a curb, or became trapped in a pothole, some passerby would always rescue it and send it toward its goal. Never once was a Tweenbot lost or damaged. Often, people would ignore the instructions to aim the Tweenbot in the “right” direction, if that direction meant sending the robot into a perilous situation. One man turned the robot back in the direction from which it had just come, saying out loud to the Tweenbot, “You can’t go that way, it’s toward the road.”
The Tweenbot’s unexpected presence in the city created an unfolding narrative that spoke not simply to the vastness of city space and to the journey of a human-assisted robot, but also to the power of a simple technological object to create a complex network powered by human intelligence and asynchronous interactions. But of more interest to me, was the fact that this ad-hoc crowdsourcing was driven primarily by human empathy for an anthropomorphized object. The journey the Tweenbots take each time they are released in the city becomes a story of people’s willingness to engage with a creature that mirrors human characteristics of vulnerability, of being lost, and of having intention without the means of achieving its goal alone. As each encounter with a helpful pedestrian takes the robot one step closer to attaining it’s destination, the significance of our random discoveries and individual actions accumulates into a story about a vast space made small by an even smaller robot.
*weeps all over the place* I have robot feelings, okay?
Always reblog bot feels.
CARGO - A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter
This is an amazing short film I found on YouTube. Watch it, you won’t be disappointed.
Welling up here…
Well, I cried. Damn. This is so good.
Brazilian model Alexandre Cunha was paired with a three-year-old moptop to showcase Smalto’s matching child-sized and adult tuxedos. Unfortunately, while the pressure of performing didn’t faze the buff Brazilian, his partner broke down in tears as they were striding the catwalk:
Once, I was supposed to close a show with a 3-year-old kid and we both had matching outfits. During rehearsal, everything went as planned, but on the day of the show he started crying halfway down the runway, so in my head I thought, “What am I supposed to do?!” I ended up picking him up and I carried him to the end of the runway.
i will never not reblog this
remember the good days

And Jeffrey Brown continues to amaze and delight me, after last years “Vader and Son”, with “Vader’s Little Princess”! :)
There’s an interview with him at Newsarama about the release of the book in April.
I love little Lando and Nien in the school print.
All of human history has led us to the moment that we developed the technology to digitally add a top hat to a photo of an adorable miniature octopus.
Just look at how fucking dapper that octopus looks. Look at it.
No, this was only meant to be a sketch, why did I spend all that time colouring it?
Because it’s adorable that’s why. I’m happy with what I have even if I got lazy near the end, I’m just tired now and want to get this done.
I should probably write something about the picture. Well, it’s cute, and I really like Korrasami, like a lot. I didn’t think I shipped it that hard until I started reading fanfiction of it. And I’m going to be honest I haven’t read fanfiction in years. But that has nothing to do with this.
That’s lipstick by the way, not a tongue….or is it? ;)
no but really it’s lipstick. I tried okay.
lesbihonest, this is still cute as fuck
