I saw this at the Art Institute of Chicago yesterday and I don’t think you’ve posted it yet.
Diego Rodríguez de Velázquez
Kitchen Scene, 1618/20
Oil on canvas 21 7/8 x 41 1/8 in. (55.9 x 104.2 cm)
Here’s the text on the plaque:
This is one of a number of strikingly naturalistic genre scenes of humble subjects that Diego Velázquez painted at the beginning of his career, before he left his native Seville for Madrid. The picture has suffered abraison over time, with the areas of dark paint being more damaged than the light highlights. another version of the subject in the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin, includes a biblical episode, the supper at Emmaus, in the background. this narrative lends a moralizing solemnity to the simple objects and serving girl that are the main subject. Such a background vignette was probably never part of the Art Institute’s picture.
I’ve posted it before, but am reposting for the additional info. Thanks for the submission!

9 seasons of about 22 episodes per season at about 40 min per episode = AT LEAST 7920 minutes of footage, all of which is gif-worthy
actually s3 only had 16 episodes so its more like 8 seasons of 22 plus 16 episodes of 40 minutes which is about 7,680 ish minutes worth
The thing that sucks about mental illness is that if you aren’t depressed enough, suicidal enough, bad enough, nobody cares. Nobody cares until you reach their standard, and that standard is when your problem is bad enough to effect them
The amount of people who can relate to this makes me equally incredibly sad and immensely angry
I am actually crying wtf is wrong with me
The last one is what got me
i can’t believe we live in a world where someone on tumblr can call chris evans a dorito in the tags of some post and have it circulate so widely that robert downey jr calls him that often enough that chris evans gets the joke behind it.
