If you are not as concerned about the people handing you your food in the restaurant as you are about the pigs on the farm where it was grown, your approach is classist. … If you start telling someone all about your new trendy diet or asking them about theirs without knowing if they have an eating disorder that may be triggered by your prattle, your approach is ableist. If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism.

less romantic love more Romantic love, come grave robbing with me in a thunderstorm. 

(via milkradio)

I called up a real estate agency regarding a flat and I was told ‘what’s your full name and contact number? We pass it on to the landlord so he can vet people before they come to see the property’

Call me suspicious but I’m pretty sure that means ‘so he can see what your surname is and weed out any ‘undesirables’ without attracting suspicion’.

So maybe the landlord’s racist, xenophobic or sectarian (oh the fun of the Scottish West Coast. A ‘Mc’ surname like mine would rule me out as of Irish origin and thus probably Catholic, even though my dad’s family are not) or there’s the option of some hideous combo of all three. 

I am suspicious. But the property had carpets so I just hung up as soon as possible. Too little to go on. It left a bad taste though.

UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW

Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.

thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.

Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.

i really appreciate the WHOLE BACKSTORY ON THIS FUKr

aaaaaah perfection!!! i love pixels.

River Structures Paul Hirzel

  • River House I ‘The Bridge’ with 2,310sqf conditioned space is the living-guest quarters and it sets approx. 12 feet above grade. A 15-foot deep steel Howe truss system spans 80 feet at the center span with 32/16 foot balancing cantilevers at each end. The steel bridge truss supports a wood lattice that shades conditioned space below.
  • River House II ‘The Lookout’ with 1,139sqf conditioned space is a multiuse space 1000 feet up river from the main structure. It is constructed with an inverted steel truss exoskeleton which cantilevers 40 feet over the river to view a rare Steelhead spawning pool below.

hmm a rejection for a prose poem, never fun late at night (but I check submittable at all hours, of course I do)

It’s not so bad though because today I bought a plush toy version of the black death.

Did some painting practice while waiting for the rain to let up. These are entirely from reference for the sake of practice.The photographer is Jack W. Dykinga, and you find the book here.  If you have any reason to look at, paint, or even think about deserts, I highly recommend it.

there was a monarch butterfly outside with a torn wing and i thought it was dead so i went to pick it up off the ground with a flower but it began to hurriedly clutch onto it trying to drink something. it was totally trembling; it had a gash on it’s body and i knew it was dying but i couldn’t bring myself to kill it, so i googled a monarch’s favourite food and it ended up being mandarins. he literally devoured as much as he could before dying and i buried him outside my window.

You’re a good person

City of Ember

(2008)
I’m glad I watched this after Metropolis, bit of a visual tribute going on there in the city under the world.
This movie is entirely cute by the way. Evil villain Bill Murray as Mayor of Ember. Giant moth, giant star-nosed mole. The outfits.The weency bits of Wes Anderson style framing. Saoirse Ronan + Harry Treadaway looking all dystopian.
