Telling short films through gifs: THE MAKER

In this short film an odd creature awakens to find time ticking away. He opens up a book and starts making another creature similar to him. You might think he’s making a lover for himself, but in the end he hands his creation the same book and is wisped away, forever gone. 

His new creation now has to make a creation of her own. 

I like this short film because it represents life. You know that old “we’re going to die anyway so what’s the point”. The point is even though we don’t live on, our ideas, our creations, and our views do. They will be passed on and molded for generations to come with each one getting more beautiful as time moves on. 

And that makes it worthwhile.

mythology meme:  [5/8] myths, legends, and stories
↳ the book of judith

Often regarded as the first historical novel or a parable, The Book of Judith appears in the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Septuagint Christian Old Testament of the Bible. 
King Nebuchadnezzar, a powerful ruler of Assyria, sends the fearsome leader of his army, Holofernes, to wipe out the city states that had refused to aid him in a previous war. One of the cities targeted is Bethulia, which was located near Jerusalem. Holofernes lays siege on the city; the people soon run out of drinking water. They pray to God to help them, but after five days no relief has come. Judith, an influential and beautiful widow, decides to take matters into her own hands. 
She prays to God to make her a good liar, and to give her, his loyal servant, the power to help her people. After dressing in her finest garments and best jewellery, she lets herself and her maidservant be captured by Assyrians just outside of city walls, promising a way to take the city easily, without losing but a single soldier, if she’s taken to Holofernes. The soldiers were enchanted by her beauty and fulfilled her request. When she is presented to Holofernes, he’s taken aback by her beauty and quick wit. He tells all his soldiers to leave the tent and lies down on his sheepskins to get drunk in the company of Judith. After a while, he’s out cold, and Judith, seeing no other way, takes his sword from its sheath and hacks off Holofernes’s head. She wraps it in a cloth and brings it to Bethulia, where it’s deliberately put in view of the Assyrians’ battlements. Terrified, the now leaderless Assyrians flee and are easily picked off one by one by the Israelites. Judith becomes a national heroine, and lives to be a hundred and five.

mortisia:

Morticia A. Addams is the fictional matriarch of “The Addams Family”, created by cartoonist Charles Addams and based on his first wife Barbara (who became the second wife of John Hersey, a colleague at The New Yorker and the author of Hiroshima). Morticia is the wife of Gomez Addams and mother of Wednesday Addams, Pugsley Addams and Pubert Addams. The character originated in the Charles Addams cartoons for The New Yorker magazine in the 1930s. Charles Addams gave her the name “Morticia”, implying “death” (derived from “mors mortis”, the Latin word for “death”, and perhaps also from “mortician”). Morticia’s maiden name is “Frump” and she has an older sister named Ophelia (also played by Carolyn Jones). Morticia is described as a vamp; she is slim, with extremely pale skin and long flowing straight black hair. She commonly wears black gothic dresses to match her hair, tightly form fitting, with a hobble skirt. 

"The real head of the family … low-voiced, incisive and subtle, smiles are rare…ruined beauty … contemptuous and original and with fierce family loyalty … even in disposition, muted, witty, sometimes deadly … given to low-keyed rhapsodies about her garden of deadly nightshade, henbane and dwarf’s hair …"Charles Addams

Hecate is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology. She was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, dogs, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. In the post-Christian writings of the Chaldean Oracles, she was regarded with (some) rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour, Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul.  She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family.
