George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

Please don’t ever forget the US interned Japanese Americans from 1942-1946. They interned German Americans from 1917-1919 and again from 1939-1946.

But you’ll never read that in a history book. At least not in the US.

Just received my size 50 knitting needles in the mail, and I’m pretty sure these are weapons, not craft making tools

Have you ever read anything about Han van Meegeren, the man who forged the Vermeers?  He’s fascinating, and there are a couple of decent books about him.

LET ME YELL A LITTLE TO THE INTERNET AT LARGE ABOUT MY LOVE FOR HAN VAN MEEGEREN

HE COMBINES ALL OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS

  • SAYING “FUCK YOU” TO ART SNOBBERY
  • CON MEN WITH HEARTS OF GOLD
  • TECHNICAL SKILLS USED IN THE COMMISSION OF HILARIOUS CRIMES
  • ART HISTORY
  • TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPENING TO NAZIS

THE BEAUTY OF VAN MEEGEREN IS THAT HE STARTED FORGING VERMEERS BECAUSE CRITICS HATED HIS ART (WHICH WAS ADMITTEDLY KIND OF TERRIBLE) BUT THEN WHEN HE STARTED PAINTING VERMEERS HE STUDIED THEM REALLY HARD AND LEARNED ABOUT AGING TECHNIQUES AND PAINTED THE SHIT OUT OF SOME FAKE VERMEERS 

AND OKAY MAYBE HE CHEATED SOME PEOPLE BUT I’M SORT OF INCLINED TO FORGIVE HIM BECAUSE IT’S NOT LIKE THEY WEREN’T RICH ENOUGH TO TAKE THE HIT AND THEN

GET THIS

HE SOLD A FAKE VERMEER TO A NAZI BANKER WHO SOLD IT TO HERMANN GOERING

WHO GOT HIS JOLLIES STEALING ART FROM AND THEN BRUTALLY MURDERING THE ENTIRE JEWISH POPULATION OF EVERYWHERE HE WENT

SO FUCK GOERING.

AND AFTER THE WAR VAN MEEGEREN WAS BROUGHT UP ON CHARGES OF COLLUDING WITH THE ENEMY BECAUSE HE SOLD VERMEERS TO COMMANDER SHITHEAD OVER THERE

AND VAN MEEGEREN WAS LIKE

"Naw bro that was a fake I just brought tons of legit art and money into the country by cheating Nazis with a bunch of forged paintings."

SO THEY LOCKED HIM IN A ROOM AND SAID IF YOU’RE SO CLEVER AND THOSE REALLY WERE FAKE, DO IT AGAIN

AND WITH DECADES OF HIS FREEDOM AT STAKE

HE PAINTED A VERMEER

"Jesus Among the Doctors" aka "Young Christ in the Temple" aka "SCHOOLED YOU LOL" please note still kind of a shitty artist, you make the baby Vermeer cry

SO HE WAS ALL *MIC DROP* BUT THEN HE HAD TO PICK THE MIC BACK UP BECAUSE HE WAS CHARGED WITH FORGERY AND SENTENCED TO A YEAR IN PRISON.

BEFORE THE SENTENCE COULD BE CARRIED OUT HE DIED, WHICH IS SAD

BUT HIS SECOND WIFE GOT TO KEEP ALL THE PROCEEDS OF HIS DASTARDLY DEALINGS BECAUSE OF LEGAL DOODAHERY AND THAT SET HER UP FOR LIFE

SO BASICALLY HAN VAN MEEGEREN: SHITTY PAINTER, GOOD HUSBAND, EXEMPLARY CON MAN, MADE HIS BONES CHEATING NAZIS.

Chris Pratt Interrupts Interview To French Braid Intern’s Hair

SHUT THE HELL U P

Okay but can we talk about how pretty her hair is, because this has crossed my dash approximately eight million times and every time all I do is stare at the lower left corner image like god damn, what does she use for conditioner

I mean I don’t even need to know, I don’t have enough hair for conditioner to matter, I just think Intern Pretty Hairs needs some credit for her contributions to this gifset.

get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.

please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.

May I also add that The Prince of Egypt’s accuracy has been approved by not only Christianity, but by Judaism and Islam as well! So it’s actually the most accurately told version out there!
