Writer, lover of slash, spanking, BDSM and hot men falling in love with each other. I will reblog NSFW pics of beautiful subby men (and occasionally beautifully dom men or both together!) so be warned before following me :-).

“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
Gymnosomata, commonly known as Sea Angels. An apt name- the sea angels are the ethereal, translucent, fluttering angels of the sea.
In hard scientific terms, they’re small swimming sea slugs, but we’ll pass over that for now and just admire how delicately beautiful these wonderful creatures are.
But really, let me list these reasons they need their own spin off:
1. Torchwood is done (some people say because of Miracle Day, I say because they killed Ianto).
2. Sadly, the Sarah Jane Adventures is no more, leaving K9 as the only spinoff show.
3. Little girls need more kick ass female protagonists on TV.
4. They could solve Victorian crimes and still stay family friendly (at least until the internet gets a hold of em….).
5. Who doesn’t wanna see more of THE LIZARD LADY and HER WIFE?!
“The night I was cast, I went out and bought The Empire Strikes Back and Jaws. My goals were to get a voice as sinister as Darth Vader and the menacing physicality of the shark. It’s so easy to take these big beasts – these ferocious characters – and cook them at ten the whole time. But I wanted to have this circling, steady presence that would suddenly attack randomly. Peter allowed me to make a lot of adjustments. Being a Maori, in the scene where I’m beating up Thorin, I rocked back on my warg, raised my eyes up and did this look that in the Maori world is called ‘pukana’. You show the enemy the whites of your eyes. It just happened instinctively and at the end of the take I said, “Peter, I think I pukana-ed!” I didn’t think he’d use it, but sure enough, when I went down to the premiere with a bunch of Maori friends, there it was.”

Duck, Owl Photos Show The Most Adorable Friendship Ever
The best friend bond is something that can last a lifetime, and for these two winged pals, it looks like they’ll be buds for years to come.
Chop-suey, a baby white-crested runner duck, and Larch, a baby long-eared owl, met at the Kirkleatham Owl Center in northern England earlier this month. The two have since become inseparable, sleeping and cuddling with each other.
A spokesperson for the center said the pair will eventually need to be separated due to “differing needs as they develop,” Zooborns reported. But for now, the cuteness can continue.
While they may be adorable, make sure to keep baby ducks outside as they don’t make for good pets. The average duck poops once every 15 minutes and the CDC recommends washing your hands after coming into contact with them as they “often” carry Salmonella.
Take a look at some more photos and a video of the pair here.
