Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.
And now, a break to look at adorable snow leopards.
thetadelta: Snow leopard tail nomming compilation, because tails are just awesome.
Photos are from: tanidareal, leopatra-lionfur, denisesoden, rheazblaze, bledsoevball30, and eisenmann87 from DeviantART and barrybaskin from Flickr.
I love how they can manage to look judgmental and disapproving all while having their tails in their mouths.
I’ve reblogged this before, but I don’t care you’re not my mom.
Om nom nom, tasty tails.
Tail noms! :’)

Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in July 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.
These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
God i miss apogee games
OMFG LIFE AS WE KNEW IT TERROR
Jack Dawson… Penniless artist who wins a ticket onto Titanic in 1912, attends a first class dinner, develops a taste for the finer things in life, pockets the Heart of the Ocean, survives the sinking, pawns the diamond, spends the following ten years building his wealth and in 1922 moves to West Egg as Jay Gatsby… Millionaire with a shady past and fear of swimming pools.
IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!!!!!
Not gonna lie, my heart melted a wee bit.
