A blog that transformed into me reblogging pretty pictures, laughing at/making fun of the stuff my friend reblogs, and stepping on my soapbox to speak to an empty crowd.
Fighting evil by moonlight. Selling propane by daylight.
So who’s Tuxedo Mask? Peggy? Kahn? Buck Strickland? Jimmy Witchard?
While all of you people are mourning Nelson Mandela’s death, I’m mourning the deaths of all the dead soldiers and children in third-world countries that nobody gives a shit about cuz they’re not famous. All you other people mourning are just phonies caught up in hype.
*turns up nose and walks away*
(I don’t really mean all of this, I’m just being facetious. People like to suck their own dicks by doing this type of shit when a famous person dies and it’s really fucking smug and annoying. Rest in peace to Nelson Mandela and my condolences go out to his family, loved ones, and all of South Africa. In a world where getting in politics or almost any leadership role is tantamount to selling your soul to the devil, it speaks highly of Mandela to dare to be the anomaly in the equation and poorly of everyone else that Mandela’s example is seen as the anomaly. He was too good for this world.)
Pete Fecteau spent 40 hours configuring a monumental mosaic of Martin Luther King Jr. made entirely out of Rubik’s Cubes called Dream Big. With a computer generated draft as his blueprint, the determined creator used 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes to construct the 18’ 6” x 9’ 8” piece that, once completed, weighed about half a ton.
Dream Big has marked a turning point in Fecteau’s artistic career, garnering him much attention. Interestingly, as a designer by day, Fecteau never saw the Rubik’s Cube mosaic as a “career move,” it was just a “crazy idea” he could not ignore.
"It’s been a weird project," he told us. "There were many times where I’d want to give up and then the next day I’d get a call that forced me back on the horse. I kind of feel like it was willing itself to be made. I can’t say I’m surprised by the attention. When I first looked at the finished product I was in as much awe as everyone else. I’m very happy to have this make people think about what’s possible."
