Wow

I fucking love people who find street-side self-employment to do what they love. When I was in high school, there was a kid in my AP Bio class, really smart and intelligent and loved biology, but he was just so disillusioned with the academic situation in America that he didn’t even want to go to college. Our bio teacher asked him how he was going to find a career in biology without a degree, and he said he’d buy an electrophoresis kit and set it up in a city square and just let people watch the DNA fragments travel through the gel, and set out a hat or whatever to take donations. A biology street-performer. We all laughed, but last summer I was in Boulder, and there was this man on Pearl Street, along with the magicians and harpists and such, and he had a high-powered telescope. You could look through it and see the planets and stars in broad daylight, and he’d point them all out to you and give you a little lesson. He had a hat out and a cardboard sign asking for three dollars to look through the telescope, and he had a line of people. There’s something incredibly inspiring to me about the people who want to do something so badly that they’ll do it on the street if they have to. 

I saw a guy giving free compliments, and taking donations on the street. He would wax poetic about the beauty of the people walking by - their hair, their clothing, “the light shines off the blue of your eyes, while the skies of venice weep in shame, to wish they could match a shade so clear and bright.” Dude had class.
No matter what gender or age passed by, he had something kind to say to them. 

This.

  4. So….there’s a hideous, gawdy statue of Poseidon that some yankees put up down near the south end of the island in front of some of the gawdy, 70s-style condos on the main beach road. Some kids keep stealing his trident. Must be hell on his manhood.

This is at the corner of the block my office building sits on and it makes me really happy whenever I cross the intersection. Even when I get ‘Walking On Sunshine’ stuck in my head as a consequence, which happens.

For more reasons than I can tell you, this makes me so happy that you are where you are. It’s like the Rainbow Bridge led you to where you needed to go to be YOU. (You know, without the dead animals and the sad stuff. And, with more girl-on-girl and boys-kissing-action. /insensitive)

From the New Yorker: THE KISS THAT CHANGED VIDEO GAMES

On the first day of the show, the game’s producers, Kana Ryan and Chris Trottier, watched in disbelief as two of the female Sims attending the virtual wedding leaned in and began to passionately kiss. They had, during the live simulation, fallen in love. Moreover, they had chosen this moment to express their affection, in front of a live audience of assorted press. Following the kiss, talk of The Sims dominated E3. “You might say that they stole the show,” Barrett said. “I guess straight guys that make sports games loved the idea of controlling two lesbians.”

This is an interesting piece about The Sims and how an unplanned, same-sex kiss at E3 in 1999 made people take notice of a game that was almost shuttered.

    A person from Boston is called a pumpkin because apparently even in the 18th century we wouldn’t shut the fuck up about how delicious pumpkins are

    Rightfully so! Why the hell would you ever shut up about the deliciousness of pumpkins?

    you’re not wrong!

    She’s not wrong! Also:  who is this? HOW DO I TAG THIS?

    The benefit of knowing someone who favors retrofuturistic music and all the side genres that go along with it is that I can tell you that this is Max Raabe (and possibly the Palast Orchester) and he does lots of covers, like this one of Britney Spears’ Oops I Did It Again, AND THEY’RE ALL AMAZING.

So I know most of you won’t be able to help since you don’t live in Mexico but this is all I can do right now.  My grandma went missing yesterday, May 10, in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico.  Please if you know anyone who lives there can you send them this picture and ask them to signal boost?  My poor mother is losing her mind with worry and my family has been looking for her since yesterday and haven’t been able to find her.

Sorry but I’m reblogging for the later crowd.

hey, if anyone can help my friend out, please do!

Boosting for a loved one’s loved one.

    In other news of ideas I just had that could be terribly rad or simply terrible (and probably both):

    Who wants to play a game of fitness tag? I’ll run a mile and then ‘tag’ you via your phone/a social networking platform. Then you have to run/walk/bike/cartwheel a mile some time in the next…

    YES! MEEE!!!

    Squares, Savannah, GA

    The first thing I believe everyone should do when they get to Savannah is to park the car and start walking. The city is perfect for it, with its laid-back and easy southern atmosphere, frequently mild, warmly-humid weather, beautiful shady oak trees dripping Spanish moss, and plentiful pedestrian paths and crosswalks—and the ‘Crown Jewels’ of Savannah are the squares that make up the city itself.

    Savannah was designed in 1733 by General James Oglethorpe, and was laid out in similar style to a military camp, built in blocks around four squares intended to provide open space for military practice and drilling. The spacious, organized design was intended both to create gathering points for colonists in defense of the city, and to prevent crippling fires, such as the one that had devastated London in 1666. The layout also allowed for easy expansion, as more squares and more blocks which made up the city’s ‘wards’ were added on as the population increased. In most wards, wide streets that run north-to-south and east-to-west lead directly to the square at the heart.

    Each of Savannah’s squares holds a different treasure. A mix of art, history, and culture, the squares tell the story of Savannah itself; from the original four squares that make up the historic district, to the ‘lost’ square reclaimed and rebuilt as recently as 2010.

    In Johnson Square – the first to be built – stands a memorial to General Nathanael Greene over his gravesite; along with two fountains and a sundial dedicated to Colonel William Bull, who also gave his name to one of Savannah’s downtown streets. Colonel Bull helped Oglethorpe to establish Savannah, and was the surveyor who originally laid out the city and the square which contains his memorial. Look closely at the sundial, and you’ll find a map of Savannah as it was in 1734, just one year after its founding.

    Percival Square was named after Lord Percival, considered responsible for the naming of the Georgia colony. In 1763 it became Wright Square, in honour of Savannah’s last royal governor. Fittingly, Wright Square is also known as Courthouse Square, as its ward contains the courthouse, federal building, and post office. In this square, you will find the grave of Tomochichi, former leader of the Native American Creek nation, who also assisted in the founding of Savannah. You will also find a monument to William Washington Gordon, in place of Tomochichi’s original grave marker – a pyramid of stones in the custom of the Creek people – which was erected in 1883. This is the only monument in the city squares that honours one of its own native Savannah-born citizens. Tomochichi now has a second monument in Wright Square, commissioned by Gordon’s widow in protest at her husband’s displacement of one of Savannah’s founding fathers.

    Telfair Square is home to one of the more upscale and fashionable Savannah neighborhoods, and honours not an individual, but an entire family—the only square so dedicated. Among that family’s members are former Governor Edward Telfair, Congressman Thomas Telfair, and Mary Telfair, whose bequest founded Savannah’s Telfair Museum of Art; the first public art museum in the American south. Telfair Square also contains tributes to the Girl Scouts of the USA, a society founded by Juliette Gordon Low of Savannah.

    Walk through all 22 of the current city squares, and you’ll learn about the events that shaped Savannah from its founding: Georgia’s venture into the silk trade; a former garden that was home to imported crops such as mulberry, hemp, and indigo, as Georgia sought to find its niche in colonial commerce; monuments to the Moravian missionaries and Methodist founder who proselytized in Savannah; a square lost for nearly 50 years before its restoration and renovation; memorials that show the ‘sister city’ relationship between Savannah and Boston, which persisted even through to the end of the civil war, with Savannah sending ships full of food north to Boston after the final battle and southern surrender; a fountain that represents the ‘poetic personification’ of the United States; a statue referencing the War of 1812 and former enmity between the American colonies and Spanish Florida; memorials to Andrew Jackson and early German immigrants who relocated to Savannah; a fountain commemorating the 250th anniversary of Georgia’s founding as a colony, which stands next to the Roman Catholic Cathedral, and whose waters are dyed green on St. Patrick’s Day; a square dedicated to Gilbert du Motier, marquis de La Fayette, a French hero of the American Revolution; a grove of majestic live oaks, covered in Spanish moss; authentic cannon from the Savannah Armory placed in honour of the Siege of Savannah; a picturesque monument to the Mexican-American war, surrounded by the same  historic buildings originally laid out to surround the square; and the cemetery founded in 1750, which is still home to some of the first citizens of the new city.

    In short, when you walk through the Squares of Savannah, you walk through the history and culture of Savannah itself; and it’s a truly beautiful journey to make.

    Ugh. I love the shit out of Savannah. I wonder if I can finagle a way to get back by there before I move. 

    Um, YES! charmingpplincardigans, if you want to take a day trip up when you’re here for dress fittings, I am game!
