Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

Gave my shoes a face lift ⁺✧.*




i’ll be like 40 w/no kids and people will say “aw i’m so sorry for you” and i’ll be like how was the fucking wiggles reunion tour asshole i went to italy last week for fun and didn’t have to hire a sitter

This is a very sad mentality. To think oneself more important than that of progeny is the sign of a failed human life.

so the wiggles concert wasn’t as good as you thought it would be huh


Whoops I made a Tragic Shinji to go with my Tragic Kaworu.


So I watched Rebuild of Evangelion, if just to see one character I fell in love with many many years ago…




Momma has seen so many asks about this, and it must end.


There are tree things that Momma will be angry at you for- maldirected hate, willful ignorance, and BINDING WITH ACE BANDAGES.

What happens when you bind with ace bandages? If you wear them too long where you’re MEANT to, it will cause bruising and swelling like on the foot above.

If you are LUCKY, you will crack a rib or faint and stop binding improperly.

If you are UNLUCKY, you will have the long-term repercussions. These include, but are not limited to scoliosis (pictured above), muscle damage, bruising, rib warping, pain, and breathing issues.

This is because Ace Bandages are made to reduce swelling. When you breathe, your ribs expand to make room for the air. The Ace Bandages register this as swelling, so with every breath you take, they will bind and restrict tighter.

In a worst-case scenario, your bones will be deformed. You will never be able to bind ever again, even if you use proper methods. Your breathing will be severely impaired.

This is advice for anybody who is thinking about binding. Please, PLEASE, bind properly.

Momma loves you, and doesn’t want to see you get hurt.

(( Good advice for some of you who have been asking about binding. ))

Be careful babies! :<



Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

Episode 13: Unafraid of the Dark, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey


That is fucking frightening.

This is fucking inspiring and beautiful. This is science. Never assume you know everything. Never assume you have all the answers. Life is vast, the universe is diverse, forever expanding, and mysterious. Life is amazing and literally everything in existence is a miracle. We are in the Universe, but we are also made OF the universe so we are in the universe while it is also a part of us. Stars had to die to create life, we literally are made from dead stars. This shit’s amazing. Does it have the potential to be terrifying? Sure. But I find religious ideology to be much more terrifying. Science is spiritual. Science gives me perspective. Science astounds me. Confounds me. And life itself is beautifully vast and reproducing itself everywhere, expanding for eternity. That’s spiritual right there. And it’s also science.

I need to watch this show.
