Moved too fast that night
I didn’t give you any chance to catch up
Where did I have to go that was worth leaving you alone
Cause now I all want to hear is yer voice
But I didn’t leave you with a choice
I just left
Guess I’m just a self-sabotager
Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.
Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.
"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
Oh my gods this makes me so happy.

I got up early and watched The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934, Harold Young) today. To my surprise, it had almost nothing to do with the Daffy Duck cartoon, The Scarlet Pumpernickel (1950, Chuck Jones). It stars Leslie Howard, who, as always, is a total stud. Raymond Massey plays the antagonist, and does a great job. He has this wonderfully loathsome expression the entire film. Between this film, The Old Dark House, and East of Eden, I’m really coming to love Massey. This film sort of feels like the British cousin to Errol Flynn’s The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938, Michael Curtiz).
The film also features the exclamation “a thousand hells!” which I’ll have to work into my vocabulary.
On those nights where a song could make me act so weird
Those nights where the moon seemed like it was all ears
Nobody will ever love you quite the way you want them to. You just have to let them do their best.
This man is lauded by American liberals as a comedian who tells the truth. This man has his own HBO show, where celebrities, journalists, and politicians appear as guests to discuss the latest news stories. This man is a misogynist and a racist.

Oh golly! Looks like I have been tagged by nitrateglow. Here are her questions and my answers:
1. Favorite dessert?
Warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream
2. What is the last dream you can remember?
I gave up meat almost a month ago. Earlier this week I had my first dream about eating meat.
3. If you were a musical instrument, which one would you be?
I’m pretty sure that I would be a theremin. Nobody quite sure what to do with me. Just standing there, making these horrible high pitched screeches, until someone finally comes and shuts me off.
4. Favorite movie soundtrack and why?
Transformers: The Movie (the 1986 cartoon). This is definitely a nostalgic pick, but you would have a hard time finding a soundtrack that was more fun to sing along to. 80’s rock ballads, hair metal, and Weird Al - it’s so good
5. Least favorite genre of music?
Dubstep? Yeah, probly dubstep
6. 1930s musicals or 1950s musicals?
I haven’t yet seen many musicals from either decade. I would have to go with the 1930’s musicals. Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers are hard to top, and I’m a sucker for anything where Edward Everett Horton is likely to make an appearance.
7. A popular movie you don’t care for.
Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Jackson’s LOTR trilogy was a labor of love, but this one is too self-indulgent. Jackson treated the LOTR with reverence, but doesn’t seem to treat The Hobbit with as much respect. Playing up the story to three epic length movie makes it feel bloated. Some of the CGI characters look cartoonish and silly. It felt like it was pandering, at times. Bigger is not necessarily better, and 48 fps was just wrong. That being said, it was nice to see Sylvester McCoy, even if his character shouldn’t have been there.
8. Top three favorite books
9. If money were no object, what would you do with yourself?
Nothing too productive or thrilling. Travel and camp more. Visit internet friends? Read and write about movies more. Move to a smallish town and maybe make dumb video. Only order from the best pizza places.
10. Three qualities you admire in a person?
11. Which historical person would you most like to meet if you could?
Buster Keaton, though I’m sure that I would only embarrass myself, and bore him
I never do this, but my family needs your help. this pit bull / boxer mix is named Daisy. she’s a four-year-old very lovable rescue. she needs a new home by the end of this week or my sister’s boyfriend is putting her down. she has escaped her enclosure a few times due to the gate being left open and the city has given the family citations because of it, causing their insurance to go up, so they are planning to put her down rather than find somewhere for her to live. she is not violent towards people, though she did occasionally fight with the other pit the family has (never to an extreme). she’s a kind, loving, sweet dog who needs a loving owner. she is spayed and all of her shots are up to date. we will pay for all training and equipment required by anyone who could take her in. my sister is heartbroken at the possibility of having to put her down and we have until the end of the week to find her a home. we’re located in Royal Oak, Michigan, but we will drive to you if you’re able to take her in.
please do me a favor and reblog this so we can find this lil babe a home. message or e-mail me if you or someone you know can help us. zhfields@gmail,com.
