the great british break off



"selfie culture" seems so tame by comparison when you realize that not only did old timey rich people spend a fortune commissioning artists to paint flattering images of them, they spent many hours sitting for these portraits

who’s the me generation now


#art museums are actually just full of renaissance selfies this post just changed my life

" (over whom at the launch I spilled some horrible green wheatgrass and spirulina drink that would otherwise have gone all over P Diddy) "

" Before the change of name from Arndale to Frenchgate Centre, the centre was home to a controversial statue entitled ‘The Lovers’, which depicted a naked couple in a passionate embrace and which was the subject of many complaints from mothers who claimed that it was not appropriate for young children to see.

It’s true, and here’s the only (bad) picture I could find

And then they ended up at the bottom of someone’s garden?

hi! i'm working on an entrelac scarf. i was wondering if yours was a blanket or scarf sized? it's so cute!

It’s blanket sized because I love totally oversized shawls, I had those yarns in my stash (this and this) and they didn’t do much on their own but the combo is working out great. The linen adds a lot of weight which should be good. Thank you! :)

That’s a lot of #entrelac #knitting #knittersofinstagram


It’s like when Windows does this, but in real life.

Okay but for real, how do I buy that chair, it looks so useful

It’s back. The thing you want is called FlexibleLove.

  • professor: *overhears from front of class*

  • me: ....

  • me: ....
  • professor: it should be polyerosy

Leo Tolstoy, born on this day in 1828, on finding meaning in a meaningless world – spectacular read, the kind that stays with you for life.

" There is no logical reason to stop women from conducting. The baton isn’t heavy, it weighs about an ounce. No superhuman strength is required; good musicianship is all that counts.
As a society, we have a lack of comfort in seeing women in these ultimate, authority roles. Out of 295 acts and artists in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, 259 are entirely male, meaning that Tina Weymouth’s part in Talking Heads makes them one of the 36 female acts. The Association of Independent Music’s 2012 membership survey revealed that only 15 percent of label members are majority-owned by women. PRS claims that only 13 percent of writers registered are female.
