Be the Bird.

You are the bird. I'm 18, and I'm kinda like bagel-toasted bread. One side is fluffy and pretty and the other side thinks a little bit too much about blood and sex. I post stuff about birds, art, science, and the occult. The background image is from Friedman Archives.


Littering is now a more expensive infraction than possessing an ounce or less of marijuana in Washington DC.


Fuck yeah


“I had cancer when I was sixteen. But honestly, it was so long ago that it’s almost like it happened to a different person. It doesn’t color my interactions or anything. But I’m a dancer, and I do think it’s affected my dancing. There’s this interesting tension between training and striving to control every movement of your body, and realizing that at any moment, your body can rebel against itself in a way that’s completely out of your control.”

Child’s hunting crossbow, 1600. Unknown artist. Germany.

Crossbow makers were affiliated as a separate group of craftsmen, ‘the Crossbowmen.‘ By the 16th century the great craft centres such as Nuremberg and Augsburg in southern Germany were producing crossbows with elaborate carving and inlaid, engraved staghorn. The combination of steel bow, often beautifully etched with mythological or biblical designs and the wooden stock brought together the armourer and the furniture maker for the same productions. V&A

Most people have heard of Koko, the gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. When Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off. Love is love :)

Oh bless.
