This unorthodox (& partly illegal) journey began 9 years ago, back in 2004.

It was during that year that photographer Mike Brodie would throw caution to the wind and hitchhike numerous US freight trains documenting the life of a group of his friends – wayward teenagers, adventure seekers & high school runaways. From taking in the view from the rooftops of train carriages to sleeping amongst the rough banks of the railroads themselves, Brodie was there capturing an incredible moment in time.

It all began when Brodie initially found a discarded Polaroid camera tucked behind a car seat, that was the very moment that his passion and love-affair with photography started. To date his adventures have seem him travel over 50K miles, snatched a lift from 170+ long haul freight trains and passed through 46 US States in the process.

The images were shot using 35mm film, providing a rich tapestry to his exhilarating and unique journeys.

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

If only she worked as a scientist instead of making her money acting…  Be much easier to look at her as a scientist then.  I take some real issue with the actors that talk up sciences that that got degrees in and yet don’t work in the field but are telling others that they should.  That’s great now come be like all us other lowly underpaid, under appreciated scientists and do it as your career instead of just telling others that they should.  Believe me the little girls think of acting as careers when they look at you not oh they are scientists I want to do that.  I know I’ve listened to it doing outreach with grade school girls.  It’s confusing to them and not sending as good a message as it could be.

A quick Google search turns up a couple sources on why she chose TV over research:

"The thing with that kind of neuroscience is that if you’re not doing a post-doc and currently doing research, it very quickly becomes a not-current degree. At some point, I could teach at a community college level. But very quickly the information in neuroscience outclasses your degree if you don’t stay very current.

I did my undergraduate degree in neuroscience and Hebrew and Jewish studies, and at that point there wasn’t acting stuff going on. I thought I’d want to be a professor. I thought I’d do a research professorship after my doctorate. But once I got married and started making parenting decisions, that’s when I realized that the general lifestyle of a research professor wouldn’t be compatible with nursing on demand and being with my kids all day. I wanted to finish my degree because I valued the research I did and cared about the syndrome I worked with, but felt it wouldn’t necessarily be compatible with my lifestyle especially because of our parenting.”

There’s also this more-recent interview.

I know these aren’t the greatest of sources, but they still answer the question fairly well.  I can’t say I necessarily agree with her choices (she didn’t vaccinate her kids?!), but in the end, it’s her choice, and hopefully an informed one.  Her research contributed to the literature on the syndrome she studied.  How much commitment is enough?

She doesn’t relate to other people. She was always a lonely child.

Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen at the Glastonbury 2013.

The sad thing is I saw them both at glastonbury on that day this photo was taken, and I was a fan of Tom’s then band S.C.U.M and I was going to go up to them and say ‘I love your band’ to Tom and then ‘Continue being awesome’ to both of them but I bailed at last moment. I really regret that now.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how diverse all the female body types are?

Up until recently it seemed like there was just a stock body shape for shows, and now I’m seeing so many different ones and it makes me happy. It’s just really lovely.

Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors both created by pen ward. Natasha Allegri is the creator of bee and puppycat, Rebecca Sugar is the creator of Steven Universe. Both have worked on Adventure Time as well.
