Weather for Laundry, by Hinata (中村ひなた)
“Welcome to Cardboard Box Office – our homemade creations of some of your favorite movie scenes built from some of our favorite domestic junk.
The project began after finding that we had accumulated both a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country) and a baby (due to giving birth). With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun.
The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity. Enjoy!”
“Blood is thicker than water”, when used in the context of family over friends, is in fact a wildly incorrect bastardisation.
The true, full quote is “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” and refers to relationships forged by choice holding deeper meaning than those of mere biology.
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
One of my favourite movies ever
Twins Separated at Birth Find Each Other via YouTube
After Anaïs Bordier, a French student living in London, saw American actress Samantha Futerman in aYouTube video, she noticed a striking resemblance to herself. She found one of Futerman’s personal vlogs about being adopted, leading Bordier to find the two girls had the same birthday. After sending Futerman a Facebook message, the two realized they might be long lost twin sisters. Through Twitter, Skype and Facebook messenger, the girls have been using social media to cactch up on the first 25 years of their lives. They have since launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a documentary about their first meeting, as well as a DNA test to confirm their relation.

“ You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go. ”

Good Night Lamp: A Family of House-Shaped Lamps
"If you find yourself living away from your loved ones, the Good Night Lamp might be a way to bridge the gap. The series of house-shaped lamps are connected via the internet and they let you send or receive a signal (by the house being lit) from the people most important to you."

How many more..?
How many more days do we have before she’s all grown up ? They did tell us that our children would grow fast.. I don’t think I really believed it until now. I heard it, I understood it.. I didn’t believe it.
