The Seven Year Itch (1955) dir. Billy Wilder

Sixty years ago today, Marilyn Monroe mesmerized a crowd of lucky onlookers while her white dress blew suggestively above her knees—and sometimes over her head. It was 1954, and the director Billy Wilder was filming a scene of the film The Seven Year Itch on Lexington Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Street in New York City. In the script, Marilyn Monroe and co-star Tom Ewell exit a movie theater and a breeze from the subway passing below lifts Marilyn’s skirt. Instead of rushing to cover her legs, as any decent woman of that era would have, Marilyn exclaims, “Isn’t it delicious?” (x)

Jon Hamm on the set of Mad Men by James Minchin III

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that Jon Hamm is a real person that exists. Then I see a picture of him wearing a baseball cap, looking a little sweaty & I remember, but when he looks like this, all I can think is, “THAT’S NOT REAL!”

What about in [acting]? Do you feel like you’ve personally felt the sting of sexism? [x]

The Final Images of Lester Burnham

American Beauty | 1999 | Dir. Sam Mendes

"I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time…

For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars. And yellow leaves, from the maple trees that lined our streets. Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper. And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird. And Janie…

And Janie. And Carolyn.

I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me. But it’s hard to stay mad when there is so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid life.

You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.

so i just bought The Princess Bride book and when i got home i read the front cover carefully [cause who looks at the cover that closely when all you see is THE PRINCESS BRIDE] and saw ‘the good parts’ version, abridged’, thought i’d been jibbed into buying those CHILDREN EDITION books and panicked for a full five minutes thinking oh no i don’t want to return it partly because i’m lazy and partly because i didn’t want them i think i’d read it and returned it like a dodgy consumer because who does that and then i decided to do what i should have done five minutes ago and googled THE PRINCESS BRIDE ABRIDGED ???????????? and well, it’s a joke. 

well played Mr. Goldman. well played.

nyctaeus:

This crater, 'The Sedan Crater', remains from the Plowshares program, the purpose of which was to test the peaceful use of nuclear explosions. The operating hypothesis was that a nuclear explosion could easily excavate a large area, facilitating the building of canals and roads, improving mining techniques, or simply moving a large amount of rock and soil. The intensity and distribution of radiation proved too great, and the program was abandoned. The “Sedan” device was thermonuclear—70 percent fusion, 30 percent fission—with a yield of 100 kilotons. The crater is an impressive 635 feet deep and 1,280 feet wide. The weight of the material lifted was 12 million tons.[Taken from the book Nuclear Landscapes, by Peter Goin]
