Thomas Harold Beament
Departure for the Hunt, c.1948
~
From Pegasus Gallery of Canadian Art:

After retiring from the navy in 1947, Beament embarked upon a journey to live with and study Inuit peoples of Baffin Island. Along with Lawren Harris and A. Y. Jackson, he was one of the first artists to explore the Arctic, the Inuit people and their culture. It was during these trips that Beament produced the work for which he is most famous and introduced Canadians to a people that were happy living in some of the most remote locations on Earth. In 1955, he was honoured to design a ten-cent stamp with Inuit figures for Canada Post. The drawings and paintings he made at this time of the area and its people are regarded among his greatest works of art.  

Departure for the Hunt recognizes a valuable time in the life cycle of the North—the excitement of the day, the dangers of the bay, and the beauty of its rhythms.  Unlike Harris and Jackson, on the Arctic trips Beament saw a fragile culture and focused more on the interplay of the characters than on the grandness of the landscape. It is there as well, but as an awesome backdrop as opposed to the focal point. The warmer yellow tones play on the feeling of the moment as opposed to the bleakness of the landscape. Beament would have seen a time when the Canadian military Operation Musk-Ox had just been completed (1946). The high North was now changing from the centuries old behavioural patterns to modernisation due to new accessibility. Overall, this silkscreen is a highly composed final homage to Northern life.

on the other hand, it’s not like anyone who buys this book will feel misled.

Because we don’t watch porn. We read it.

Whatever I was doing here, I have made a note to never do it again when Skyping with students. Astronaut nightmare.

"It took a special kind of guts to be a fuck up as a woman, I thought. To say to hell with being the nice girl, the responsible one, the one who makes sure the man takes care of himself and eats properly and doesn’t take too many drugs. To be just as nihilistic and self-destructive as a man, knowing all along that you’ll get crucified for it, because somehow, the world will make everything your fault. He’ll be a martyr, and you’ll be a succubus. He’ll be a genius and you’ll be a groupie, He’ll be a hero, and you’ll be an ugly fat crack whore who deserves to die."
— Courtney Love (via fuckedonxanax)

Omfg Rushlight ficrec x2 (F/K)

jackymedan:

Wow. so I just read Gravity and Dark Stranger by Rushlight and hot damn.

I can’t even form any coherent sentences about how well written and amazing and great and smutty they both are.. just..

if you haven’t read them yet: go read them

if you have read them: go read them again

that is all.

Damn you Jackymedan, in the best possible way, because I read these at work by mistake. And then after work when I was in the playground with my children I went back to the link and found there was a whole series called Fraser in chains and this appeared to be relevant to my interests and believe you me there is no more good parenting happening here tonight.
