I love tumblr and tumblr loves me.

Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.

Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

Don’t fuck with me

This is great. You were very mature and explicit, as well as helpful in the ways that you could be. I don’t think you could have handled this any better than you did. 4 for you, Glen Coco.

I wish I could have stood up for myself in this way when I was a teenager

Sheroes.

Threatening suicide to get what you want isn’t “borderline” abusive, it is abusive.

Men who do this have a very high risk of murdering whomever they’re trying to guilt trip when the guilt trip eventually stops working.

ironically hes joked about killing me before

That’s terrifying

when it comes to specific poses I try to first draw the most basic shapes and movement lines and then gradually go into more and more details, like so:

if you have difficulties with perspective, try drawing a perspective grid first:

it’s nothing different than tips from other artists, but I hope it helped a little ;u;

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!


Fresh fruits fucking expensive

Not to mention how long those fruits would keep, which would also be linked to how many trips you have to make to the grocers. Those grapes? It would only take one week before they started getting bad.

STOP
I’m going to stop you right there. This is called the opposite of smart shopping. Go to your grocery store more than once a year and maybe you’ll be able to figure it out too.
Fruit is seasonal—as in at different times of the year, some fruits grow better than others. You probably wasted five dollars on like 12 raspberries in the fucking fall. Pineapples are fucking never on sale. Why the fuck did you buy two bags of grapes? Is this for one person? If so, one of those bags WILL go bad before you can even get to it. Did you even LOOK at the price before you bought it? 32 dollars is sometimes what I spend on my  ENTIRE week of groceries INCLUDING fruit and I live in fucking NEW YORK CITY. 
You’re complaining about packaged…what? Peanuts? You can buy those fuckers by the pound at FAR less money.
With 32 dollars you COULD have gotten
4 apples at $2/lb.
6 bananas at 72 CENTS per pound.
4 Pears/peaches at $1.49/lb 
1 cucumber (50 cents-$1)
1 Romaine lettuce from the produce section ($1-2) 
1 Tomato (ok, this depends on how fancy a tomato you want. Organic tomatoes can be expensive, so let’s say for fun that you spend 2 dollars on a glorious tomato) 
1 Thing of white mushrooms (3 dollars)
1 Fancy Salad dressing (5 dollars) 
12 Eggs (3 dollars) 
Sorry, I just started thinking about what I would like to eat for lunch this week and got carried away. 
Oh and look, this is WELL within the budget of 32 dollars. The most expensive things are going to be the fancy food items and packaged foods.
DO shop in the produce aisle
DO shop the season 
DO use your head 
DO have a menu in mind
DON’T buy a lot of packaged foods
DON’T buy things without checking the price first
DON’T MAKE STUPID SHOPPING CHOICES TO MAKE AN ERRONEOUS POINT ON TUMBLR.
