Kittens + books = love
Snuggled with my own kitty, a new book, and a hot cup of tea on this particularly dark evening. Sleep well, loves.
I don’t celebrate any holidays in December, and that’s not gonna change any time soon. What December means to me is hams are on sale. Ham month. THAT’S NICE.
But I DO like holiday music. Just not the syrupy, sentimental, cynicism-free, c. 1950 stuff blaring from every public speaker.
This is my holiday playlist. Or, at least, the parts I could find on YouTube. Maybe you are enough of an asshole to enjoy it, too.
My favorites are at the top.
"Sword for Sprites" - artwork by Daniel Brennan.
This is some Sword and Sworcery fan art I did last year for Superbrothers excellent A/V Jam.
I just realized I never posted this anywhere besides the “Sworcery” Tumblr. heehee. whoops.
It was my friend’s mom’s birthday yesterday. Both our moms are single parents and I started thinking about how strong they had to be for us. Then I started thinking about women of color in general. Being a PoC ain’t a walk in the park by itself, but add being a woman in a patriarchal society? Nahhh. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for women of color. AND THEN people have the nerve to call em out on being hard and growing a thick skin, telling them to smile and be happy n’ shit. Fuck outta here. Women that face all that bull and STILL manage to come out on top amaze me.
These thoughts inspired this piece. A black Wonder Woman.
That is really beautiful.
We do not comprehend the organic fascination with self-poisoning, auditory damage, and sexually transmitted disease.
michael poliza in churchill manitoba, who noted “the polar bear was all by himself as they are very solitary animals anyway. but this one looked particularly sad as it wandered around, almost as though it didn’t understand where the snow had gone.” (more polar bear photos)
I spent the afternoon at the Hunterian Museum in London.
my friend left her window open in her bedroom and came back to find this
look at his self-satisfied little face, the cheeky shit
if there was a post to describe australia, this is it
you mean to tell me this isn’t even a pet bird?
that in australia, you have wild birds that just fly from house to house with the express purpose of fucking shit up?
fucking HELL australia, what is wrong with you?
wake up australia
That’s what birds do
They fly around and fuck shit up
Do you have some kind of mysterious nice birds in your weird foreign country
Do birds in America and England fly into your house and make the bed and tidy up the living room a little bit
It’s cold here, so they just bounce off the windows and lie there and twitch spasmodically while you look for the shovel.
Basically hurling themselves at windows is the worst thing birds do
yeah man a kookaburra literally flew into a classroom at my high school and just sat his smug ass down on top of the desk for a good 20 minutes
why has nobody mentioned the fact that in australia there are 3-4 months a year where everybody just accepts that they’re going to get attacked by magpies. It is literally called “swooping season” and these birds will fly down to peck your fucking face, and people get their eyes ripped out and shit, it’s fucking brutal.
My teacher had to go to hospital and have surgery because of swooping season. It was in the parking lot of school and all the kids would do a mad dash towards the car as the magpies tried to kill us.
no but when you’re 12 years old and riding your bike like mad on the way home from school with an icecream bucket on your head with like branches and shit sticking out if it to scare them off and none of this is considered strange
what the actual fuck australia
australia can’t be real

a brain protein
“Pikachurin is an extracellular matrix-like retinal protein first described in 2008 in Japan by Shigeru Sato et al., and named after Pikachu, a character of the Pokémon franchise. The name of this “nimble” protein was inspired due to Pikachu’s “lightning-fast moves and shocking electric effects”.”
IM GONAN FUCKIN
osmosis jones was released in 2001 and pikachurin was “first described in 2008” so what exactly do you think is going on here
