For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

I did some lighting tests on the new Longbox set and thought I’d share them! For that matter, want some opinions on the background green lighting - in pictures 2 and 4, it’s on the table and higher up, covering more of the wall. In pictures 3 and 5, it’s on the ground. What do you guys think - up or down or none at all?

Mind you, this will still have some contrast and spotlight changes when I edit the videos, but for the baseline?

NOTE: Picture 2 was taken earlier in the day, hence why it looks a bit different in the details.

I like the lighting on 2. Makes it look more… Appealing, I’d say.

exiakaiser asked: Godzilla vs Destoroyah was one of my favorite Godzilla movies. What was your thoughts?

atopfourthwall:

It was okay, but Godzilla needed to have some more victories in the fight against Destoroyah as opposed to the military.

Are you kidding? He beat Destoroyah so bad that the beast tried to fly off, right into the waiting guns of the military. Godzilla, empowered by his coming death, his rage, and his sorrow over his son’s death, essentially made his equivalent of the DEVIL turn tail and run.
