Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?


not gonna lie that still looks intimately real

I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.

Fucking witchcraft, man. 

It’s strange because nowadays, CGI seems to age horribly. Looking at the CGI in something that was just five years old and it looks pretty obviously digital already, but the CGI in Jurassic Park, that was made in 1993  still looks just as real as it did back then. 

And not to mention, the mix of CGI and Practical Special Effects for Jurassic Park was wonderful - the animatronics in particular looking astounding.

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

nuclear-warrior said: Hi there! I'm currently in the midst of reading your 'Gojira, Mon Armour' (very interesting and captivating so far!) and I've just come across the section where you stated that 'The Blob' (although to only a small degree) was inspired by real-life events. Could you tell me more about those said events or link me to information on those events. It'd just be pretty cool to read about it, that's all. Thanks!


Thank you very much, that’s very gracious of you to say! The Blob is loosely inspired by an event in 1950, when police officers in Philadelphia came across a huge gelatinous mass of “star jelly” (a meteoric substance which apparently falls to Earth fairly often). When the cops tried to touch and move it, it dissolved. It’s not a massively documented story, and seemed to just faintly inspire the idea for the film. Still, the more you know!
