neither-saint-nor-sinner:

Remember when I watched the first ~5 episodes of NMTD and adored it and then didn’t catch up for a million years because law school /graduation/ bar exam/ job search? Well last week I caught up.

And I really like it, y’all. And I’m kind of wondering what endeared it to me so quickly.

Gifs! Shoutout to the Salton Sea for being so pretty that we literally used #nofilter on it at all. We tried color grading the footage and it just felt like gilding the lily, so everything you see is the color we captured in-camera. CRAZYSAUCE MCAWESOME, RIGHT? 10/10 recommend taking a trip to the Salton Sea/Salvation Mountain if you’re ever in Southern California (bring lots of water though). It would have been 11/10 but there is a slight stench of fish death in the air.

Heh. My last trip (a birding excursion — great birdwatching) was about 25 years ago. Smelled like dead fish then, too. I kept remembering the smell while watching this, and it was fighting with the dreamy mood a little bit, but then the dreamy mood won because OMG is this gorgeous to look at.

“It was hard for early naturalists to imagine that the passenger pigeon could ever become extinct….”

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

It was hard for early naturalists to imagine that the passenger pigeon could ever become extinct. But they didn’t realize that a technological revolution was about to hit.

“The telegraph allowed word to go out: ‘The pigeons are here,’” says David Blockstein, a senior scientist at the National Council for Science and the Environment and a founder of Project Passenger Pigeon. Thousands of hunters would then jump on newly built trains to ride out to wherever the pigeons had settled and start slaughtering them.

The hunters weren’t just killing the birds to feed their families, however. Pigeons would be stuffed into barrels and loaded back onto the trains, which would deliver them to distant cities, where they’d be sold everywhere from open air markets to fine restaurants. “Technology enabled the market,” says Blockstein.

Soon this technology-driven slaughter was decimating the passenger pigeon. Its decline was so worrisome that Congress passed the Lacey Act, one of the first laws to protect wildlife in the United States. The Lacey Act would eventually help protect many species, but for the passenger pigeon it came too late.

In 1900, the year in which the act was made into law, naturalists spotted a single wild passenger pigeon in Ohio. They never saw another one in the wild again.

For the next 14 years, the species clung to existence in a few zoos. But the birds proved to be poor breeders in captivity. Martha, the last of her kind, was barren.

Oh what a surprise it was greed and unregulated capitalism that drove the passenger pigeon extinct. (via urbpan)

Geometrical Geology | Mario Gutiérrez Photographer

A flysch is a sequence of sedimentary rocks that is deposited in a deep marine facies in the foreland basin of a developing orogen. Flysch is typically deposited during an early stage of the orogenesis. When the orogen evolves the foreland basin becomes shallower and molasse is deposited on top of the flysch. It is therefore called a syn-orogenic sediment (deposited contemporaneously with mountain building).

[Wikipedia]

In the town of Zumaia along the Basque coast, northern Spain, are two beaches that contain a geologic treasure that contains millions of years of the Earth’s history.

The Itzurun and Santiago beaches are hotspots for geologists because it houses one of the longest continuous rock strata in the world called a ‘flysch.” This flysch in Zumaia was found to have formed over a period of over 100 million years by the crashing of the waves against the cliffs. The result is an abrasion platform with alternate hard layers (limestone and sandstone) and soft layers (clay and loam). The flysch extends eastward and westward from Zumaia, stretching a total of 8 kilometers to the towns of Deba and Getaria.

Apart from the impressive rock formations, Zumaia also harbors important fossil evidences. The Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary, a rock layer that marks the end of the Mesozoic era and the extinction of non-avian dinosaurs, is found in Itzurun beach. Fossils of ammonites, ancient molluscs resemblant of the nautilus, are also found in the rock layer.

LAST DAY to donate to this heartwarming #PeterPan #webseries exploring growing up! Help us #SaveNeverland! http://thndr.it/1vf9WH3

Well, it looks like at the last minute, Indiegogo came up to us because they really like our project and want it to succeed and offered to extend the campaign another week.

(the original tumble was from a thunderclap campaign that had already been sent out).

The truth is we have until Monday September 8th to fully fund Season Two!  Woohoo!

I’m uploading a video later today/tonight to announce the extension. :)

(thanks again to everyone who has watched, supported, been awesome, y’know been a part of THE PANDOM!)
