Just a place where I collect things that interest me. And maybe some stuff from me. MAYBE.

its different for everyone i guess
This, I think, is why I didn’t realize I was depressed for a long time. Sometimes I have foggy days still but it’s not very often. But there were a few years - Alex knew me, then! - that fog reigned supreme.

This mask is completely hand carved, then dye is painted on to create subtle tone variations. The map is part of Ireland and Scotland. I created this design to honor two of my friends who walked almost 500 miles through Ireland and Scotland to raise over $15,000 for cancer research. Here’s to my Wayfarers, who showed me the joy is in the journey.
Jenn made me all teary and stuff.

Great scene, and based on an actual historical incident in medieval Germany:
When King Conrad III defeated the Duke of Welf (in the year 1140) and placed Weinsberg under siege, the wives of the besieged castle negotiated a surrender which granted them the right to leave with whatever they could carry on their shoulders. The king allowed them that much. Leaving everything else aside, each woman took her own husband on her shoulders and carried him out. When the king’s people saw what was happening, many of them said that that was not what had been meant and wanted to put a stop to it. But the king laughed and accepted the women’s clever trick. “A king” he said, “should always stand by his word.”
Medieval women were BAMFs.

Ilya Kisaradov Aka Ezorenier Takes Gorgeous Surreal PhotographyRussian photographer Ilya Kisaradov’s subjects are primarily women, who are out in the open with nature. In her photographs, the image of the birdcage appears a few times, possibly symbolizing imprisonment. The confinement of her subjects juxtaposed against the backdrop of the openness of nature illustrates the dichotomy between humans and nature and how we continuously imprison ourselves by getting further and further away from nature. Though regardless of what message one may take away from Ilya Kisaradov photographs, their stunning quality and surreal imagery are electrifying and compels the viewer to gaze intently. She is both expressive and contemplative.
These are outstanding. I love the antlers.

Made me cringe
This is what male entitlement sounds like. Also, please take notice of all the fucks she gives just in case you thought you mattered.
Wow. Douchebag central.
In this video, she doesn’t say a word. She doesn’t really have to.

Come Together/Royals - The Beatles & Lorde
#the first note of come to together hit my ears and a tear dropped
I never reblog these unofficial mash-ups, but… DAMN.
I genuinely love both of these songs, so seeing this on my dash made me try it despite not really… ever… using the Tumblr music thingy.
It was worth it.

12-year-old invents Braille printer using Lego set
The Braigo printer cost its inventor about $350, making it more affordable than other Braille printers that can retail for more than $2,000.
And because I seriously side-eye this Western journalism trend of never crediting and NAMING the actual inventors in the headlines (especially when they’re young POC)
this inventor’s name is Shubham Banerjee, and he is making his glorious design completely open source, publishing it online FREE of charge! Just remember this kid’s name before some crusty old white dude “innovates” his design and takes all the credit.
Shubham Banerjee: hero!
