Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.
Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.
"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

The Biryani’s of India.
The name is derived from the Persian word beryā(n) (بریان), meaning “fried, roasted”. The dish originates somewhere around present day Turkey / Iran.
It came to India with Islamic traders from the region and was adopted by the Mughals here and made famous. It is now very popular across the Indian subcontinent from Kashmir to Kanyakumari from Sindh (Pak) to Burma. In fact it is the national dish of Pakistan and served in their airlines.
There are also many other famous varieties of Biryani in India like Kacchi, Tehari, Dhal, Fish, Chicken, Dindugal, Thalserry, Sindhi, Vaniambadi, Thalapakatti, Bhatkali, Rawther, Karachi, Kalyani etc

is it just me or do you think it’d be helpful if they showed a model in the size you were looking for when you’re trying to shop online, like yes that looks great in size small but what about the other sizes
The lion and the goat?
putting “ohio” in scare quotes whenever you talk about it to give off the impression that you’re not entirely sure whether or not “ohio” is technically a real place

I honestly am not thrilled that Naoko Takeuchi is working on Sailor Moon Crystal. I dislike a lot of the radically feminist tones of Crystal (I.e., the very blatantly feminist theme song, Tuxedo Mask being written out whenever possible), which I can only assume were her doing.

I am legit crying with laughter.
Like, who has EVER looked at Sailor Moon and thought “nope, nothing feminist about this here story all about women who are strong and capable and kick ass in heels and nail polish.”?
And of course, Tuxedo Mask being written out of everything totally explains why he’s in every episode and gives Sailor Moon advice and strength, yup yup.
