All credit to the Yale Peabody Museum for having the courage to display this historically important object in their public gallery instead of hiding it in a basement. It’s the skull from the original mount of the Brontosaurus (= Apatosaurus) excelsus holotype YPM 1980.

Northern women sewing for North American moccasin project: 600 moccasin tops being sewn in memory of missing, murdered indigenous women

Women from across the North are stitching up a storm to prepare for a massive art project. They are part of a group that’s making more than 600 pairs of moccasin tops in memory of Canada’s missing and murdered indigenous women. The beaded works will be displayed as part of a travelling art installation project called Walking with our Sisters. Each pair of moccasins symbolizes the unfinished life of a missing or murdered woman.

Métis artist Christi Belcourt started the project. She said so far, more than 200 pairs have come in. "I’m always emotionally moved when a new pair comes in because I realize that one pair represents a women or a girl," said Belcourt. "People are really putting their love in the work. You can feel it when you hold it in your hand." The moccasin tops will be shown in a winding path on gallery floors. The first exhibition of the moccasin tops will open in Haida Gwaii in B.C. on Aug. 20.

Contemporary Art Week!

LUCY: a movie that I suspect Luc Besson can make more of nowadays according to his vision due to the advancement of special effects:

Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts.

A huge fan of THE FIFTH ELEMENT and THE PROFESSIONAL, I can’t wait to see Scarlett Johansson in action!

LUCY is due out in theatres August 8th, 2014.

There’s a lot of interesting stuff that I’ve seen since first seeing this trailer and the queue blogging it, regarding the pure white lady who is special and has to fight brown dudes to fully realise herself. Here’s a post with some of the problems.

More wonderousness from Kahn & Selesnick! With corvids!
(I imagine that this is what dinnertime at @Bzedan’s house looks like.)

If they weren’t such suspicious jerks, probs.
