The Most Gorgeous Book Ever Has No Words Or Pictures, Just Color
This is the RGB Colorspace Atlas by Tauba Auerbach. The 8”x8” hardcover tome is pretty much an encyclopedia of every color in the RGB index. It’s huge, it’s gorgeous, and I want one.
I KNOW WHAT THIS NEEDS
It’s like they were made for each other.
i swear to fucking hell if you fuckers start shipping a book and i pen i will forcibly shove you back into the pits of hell you came from
Sensors alight, the pen trailed itself sensually down the gradient shift from yellow to blue along ample curve of paper, dipping closer and closer to the book’s spine.
“Can you imagine it?” the pen whispered, whirring and selecting #00563F with practiced intimacy. “Just picture it. With your collection and my potential…we can color the world.”

Hello friends! I’m going to Disneyland in 2 days, June 19 2013 (yay!) If you reblog this I will write all of your urls on a piece of paper, and have Peter Pan sign it *likes do not count* I will write it on here ↑
HEY UH WOW OKAY IF YOU SEE THIS POST DON’T REBLOG IT OR CLICK ON IT it’s a screamer with flashy shit in it okay that’s bad
THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION!
The card features a photo of a Muslim doll with a Hijab (headscarf) that many Muslim women wear out of religious observance. The The talking bubbles placed on top of the doll’s photo read, “The Talking Doll, Pull string for message, if you dare,” and “She’ll Love You To Death! She’ll Blow Your Brains Out!” The inside of the card reads “Hope your birthday is a BLOW OUT!”
The card is produced by NobleWorks Inc. with credit for its design given to “Ron Kanfi” according to the company’s website, www.nobleworkcards.com. The motto of the company printed under their logo on the back of the card is “modern cards for modern people.”
Notice that nothing identifies this doll as a terrorist in the minds of the card designers other than that she wears a Hijab. Moreover, she – like many Muslim girl who choose to wear the Hijab – is a smiling, non-threatening normal-looking female wearing a pink Hijab and a flower-patterned dress. The unmistakable message behind the “humor” is that even the most peaceful looking Muslims are synonymous and exchangeable with terrorists.
To make matters more disturbing, the card is based on an actual doll designed by Desi Doll Company (www.desidollcompany.com) called “Aamina, the Muslim Doll.” The doll teaches kids religious greetings and sayings in Arabic with messages like “Assalamu Alaikum is the Muslim greeting, and it means peace be upon you” and “Let’s play together insha’Allah, insha’Allah means if God wills it.”
Contact the makers of the greetings card and let them know that you do NOT think that stereotyping Muslim women and girls is OK. Ask them if they would get a chuckle out of their daughters growing up exposed to messaging that criminalizes their basic identity for profit. (CAIR-Chicago has written an official letter to the company sharing its concerns.)
As always, be firm and polite.

This is beyond just stereotyping, this is Islamaphobia and racism. Portraying Muslim women as terrorists isn’t a stereotype because there’s no basis whatsoever for this “stereotype”. This is pure propaganda and hate speech.
when we wear the hijab we are visibly muslim which means every last islamaphobe out there sees a target. this stupid card encourages and validates something that puts muslim women and girls in danger.
My little sister tried to tell me this once.
when i was
a young boy
took me into the citayy
to seee a marching band
listen here u lil shit
let me explain you a thing
i’m the real slim shady
will the real slim shady
please stand up
Okay- I need to talk about a thing. On May 20th, a series of tornadoes struck Oklahoma. The largest, hitting the town of Moore, killed 25 people, 2 of them children, and seriously injured 377 more.
Normally, I wouldn’t bring this up, but a few hours later, the Westboro Baptist Church started tweeting about how “you brought His wrath Oklahoma! Oklahoma, you’ll pay,” and various other things claiming that the tornadoes were divine justice. They claimed that “fag-infested Oklahoma” had been cursed by God.
Their flier for pickets of the dead children’s funeral contained this line- “THANK GOD FOR MORE DEAD CHILDREN IN OKLAHOMA.”
I have never hated anyone or anything more than I hated the Weatboro Baptist Church at that moment.
They then registered the domain www.godhatesoklahoma.com.
Soon after, the domain was hacked by someone calling himself th3j35t3r (the jester), who changed the site to the image above. It redirects to the Red Cross donation page.
Let’s applauded The Jester for this, and spread the word.
The Jester is a widely known hacker. Apparently he was one of the guts who took down the FBI pages during the great CISPA and SOPA scare of 2012. He can also make your life incredibly difficult if he wanted to. So let’s just say that those fuckers are now on the shit list of one of the worlds most dangerous men.
