The Zachary House | Stephen Atkinson

In Ramseur, North Carolina, a reincarnation of a modernist dog-trot house. The original was designed by Stephen Atkinson more than a decade ago and became a darling of design magazines. This one was built by Terrie Moffitt and Avshalom Caspi, psychology professors at Duke University, who saw the house on the cover of a book, and wrote to Mr. Atkinson. He made a bargain with them: they could have the plans free, but if they made substantial changes, he would charge them.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

I JUST UNDERSTOOD WHAT THE CHUM BUCKET IS ON SPONGEBOB. 
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. I JUST REALIZED.
Chum is something that fisherman use as bait…it’s chopped up fish parts.
IT’S A CANNIBAL RESTAURANT. THAT’S WHY NOBODY GOES THERE.
I’M HAVING REVELATIONS OVER HERE.
I feel like I just discovered Davinci’s code or something, this really isn’t that important, but, the people need to know…

EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE THRIFT SHOP LISTEN TO THIS SHIT!

seriously guys, listen to this

this sounds like the background music you’d hear in a movie as the camera leads you around a bustling marketplace in the 17- or 1800s and it leads to the sight of a bunch of sailors hoisting and tossing around a bunch of packages on a ship getting ready to set sail for adventure

That…that is a flawless description
