I do counted cross stitch, so I think that this building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is amazing. The creator’s name is Raquel Rodrigo, an artist, and designer from Valencia, Spain.
It looks like graffiti from a distance, but close up, you can see that it’s actually a cross-stitch pattern affixed to this Philadelphia Naval Yard property building.
Take a look at the detail here. It must’ve taken such a long time to achieve this stunning final effect. She covered it with wire mesh like a giant cross stitch canvas.
What a brilliant idea.
According to the artist, she wanted to bring feminine art that has dressed homes around the world to the street. However, her idea was to use a cross-stitch pattern to do so instead of graffiti.
She now travels around the world, beautifying buildings and making various street art.
She prepares her detailed designs in advance. Then she unrolls them at the chosen location. Her desire is to bring a dash of color and creativity to the surrounding area. I wonder how long it holds up in the weather. I can’t even see where they attached the mesh. So pretty.
The missing scene just before this one:
Caspian: We have to trick my uncle into agreeing to a dual with Peter. But I don’t know if it will work, they already have a guaranteed victory based on numbers, and his advisors are not easily swayed. Someone would really have to goad him into it.
Caspian: we need someone who’s really good at getting under people’s skin
There were things Lucretia couldn’t take from them.
One night Taako makes lamb pot pie for Magnus. He takes a few bites and stops, “This is my favorite food.”
Taako is almost back in the kitchen when he turns with a casual. “No duh.”
“No this is my favorite food but every time I’ve had it, it’s been missing— something. This isn’t missing something.”
“Apples.” Taako says with a shrug. “Weird as hell, but it’s your gullet not mine.”
Magnus stares for a long time and Taako finally figures out how weird it is he knows that without Magnus having ever told him.
Magnus knows the lyrics to an old dwarven campfire song that only him and Merle seem to have heard of. There’s a dance and Magnus knows all the steps.
Half way through Merle stops him. “How do you know this?”
Magnus doesn’t have an answer.
Merle beats Taako at chess for the fourteenth time and Taako put his forehead to the table in defeat. “Why are you so good at the games?”
“A friend taught me.”
“Who? The inventor of chess?”
It’s rhetorical but Merle pauses because… he can’t remember.
She thought she was thorough but she forgot trees falling in the forest still make a sound. Even when she’s not around to hear.
concept: there are lots of different worlds and all of them have different levels of access to magic. Some are just all over the place and some have no magic at all.
You would think that we would be one of the strictly non-magical worlds, but actually, that’s not the case—we don’t have like, a huge excess of magic, but we have, like, dreams, and the placebo effect, which puts us pretty solidly in the “Numinous” world category.
This post brought to you by the placebo effect, which is completely insane if you think about it for more than like 3 seconds
but for some reason we insist on thinking of it like “so people’s symptoms improve, but like, it’s Fake” rather than “HOLY SHIT humans are so powerful, they can improve the symptoms of their illnesses just by believing they are being cared for.”
Anyway just imagine like
Human, suddenly sucked by portal into a Magical Land: damn I wish I came from a magical world lol
Elf wizard dude: hahaha bro what are you talking about
Human: well, my world is just—
Elf wizard dude: what about the magic rocks????
Human: What magic rocks?
Elf wizard dude: You know, the magic rocks. The ones that generate near infinite energy by tearing apart the fabric of their reality? You know, like, uranium? You haven’t found those yet?
Human: Wait wait wait. That’s not—
Elf wizard dude: And like, come on, you even have some low level necromantic spells over there, like—
Human: We do not have necromantic spells, what are you talking about
Elf wizard dude: didn’t you say your friend was an EMT though? they do that shit all the time. Hell, you don’t even have to be like a high level caster or some shit, it takes like a few weeks to learn CPR
Elf wizard dude: You guys do have CPR, right?
Human: I mean yes but—what the—CPR is not necromancy!! That’s not how it works, it doesn’t bring people back from the—well I guess technically it does but that doesn’t—
Elf wizard dude: Next you’re going to be telling me Mothman doesn’t “count” either.
Human: You don’t understand. I mean…Radioactivity kills people!
Elf wizard dude: Ohhh. You got just the cursed magic rocks.
Elf wizard dude: Damn. That sucks man.

Art Nouveau was the first pan-European style since Neo-classicism. Easily imitated, content free, and highly adaptable, the style was particularly appealing to private patrons uninterested in the politics of national styles that had characterized the various historical revivals of the 19th century.
The signature serpentine, coup de fouet gesture could devolve into spineless dither and filigree, however, and by the end of World War I, everyone agreed that the fin-de-siècle was over. In Europe, the various manifesto modernisms prevailed; Americans contented themselves with Art Deco, or, as Roy Lichtenstein put it, “modernism for the home.”
Thing is is, as much m/f that is produced in the world, as a bi woman, sometimes I want to see a man fall in love with an obviously queer woman. I want to see a man realizing that the woman he is interested in is gnc and that isn’t going to change.
And women fall for GNC men! I want women who are enamored with their soft queer lover.
I want to see masc/masc and fem/fem m/f ships. Wlm and mlw can and should be queer in media.
You know what, Im seeing my own post again and wanna say…. I wanna see queer makeover scenes and I wanna see the love interest gush.
I want the nerdy conservatively dressed girl bestfriend get her hair done and her fancy clothes on and she appears in a pressed suit. And I want the love interest to loose his breath because she’s so handsome in a bow tie and slacks.
I want the guy in a skirt or a dress, I want his love interest so blown away by the way his nylons look.
I wanna see the girl give the boy a corsage.
I want gnc bi love. I want gnc love period ngl.
I saw this on Tiktok and thought it needed to be passed on. Pololū Valley is sacred land currently at risk of being developed into yet another “scenic tourist attraction” for profit. Activists like @/melemaikalanimakalapua on Tiktok are fighting to have this petition seen by as many people as possible in order to prevent the senseless destruction of this land.
Note that the petition says not to donate to change.org–donations to change.org do NOT protect Pololū Valley.
I hope that by spreading this to tumblr, I can help it reach more people. Please sign this and reblog it if you can!
^^ A link with more information (especially pertinent for Hawaii residents)! There is no central donation fund for the activists yet, but I will update if one is added.
My God they actually look like dogs now
Lord, the changes! DO PUGS NEXT!!!
ACTUALLY! A breeder in Germany started to breed healthier pugs called “retro mops” and currebtly ppl are trying to get AKC and UKC to recongnize them as the new standard.
heres the comparison:
Reblogging with updates! Healthy bulldogs AND healthy pugs! ❤️
Their lil SNOOTS!!!?!
if you find bones in the forest, sit a bit and listen. they are old and have some good stories to tell. maybe they’ll teach you a spell or two, or explain where the water on our planet came from.
if you find bones by the ocean, run. don’t look back. run, faster, faster. the sea may love you but there are nights where she knows neither mercy nor science, and the bones warn you only once.
Dude you know the question you asked what do conservatives get out of supernatural? So yesterday I found out that a friend of mine from high school who is a 22yo white cishet right-leaning Roman Catholic dude who is currently serving in the military watched all 15 seasons of supernatural. Apparently he liked the guns and the fighting and he also felt like Sam and Deans’ relationship with each other and with their father reflected a lot of his own experiences growing up with 5 brothers and a military father who was gone more often than not. When he started watching, his fav character was Sam but by the end, that had shifted to Dean although he disliked the fact that Dean was, and this is a direct quote, “such a whore.” I asked him if he liked the ending and he said that it was okay, that Dean’s death was “bullshit” but that the brothers got to enter heaven together and that’s what was most important. I additionally asked him what he thought of Castiel and he said that he thought his character was boring and he disliked it when the show tried to make Cas the center of episodes. He had absolutely no memory of what happened in 15x18 and had to look up the synopsis again to remember that Cas died. **********ADDITIONAL FACTS ABOUT MY FRIEND THAT MAKE ALL OF THIS ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL: we met through ballet, one of his other favorite shows is Hannibal, he is an absolutely lethal jujitsu fighter, he has no idea what tumblr is, he works on motorcycles and vintage cars for fun which his dad taught him how to do, and when he was 18, after his gf at the time cheated on him, he decided to give up on women and he dated a gay friend of his for 3 months. Apparently he figured out pretty quickly that he was “definitely straight” but he kept dating/having sex with his friend/boyfriend until they both moved away because “he was a genuinely good dude” and he “didn’t have to catch so it was fine.” Yes he did suck dick. I asked
It’s not that I wouldn’t follow a dog into the woods to go on an adventure it’s just that I think this is the sort of trail that leads to being on a true crime podcast.
you know what if i die i die i’m FOLLOWING THE DOG THROUGH THE PLANT ARCHWAY
this is how you get kidnapped by fairies. following strange animals through odd overgrown gates in the middle of forests
they live in Narnia
I would follow him without question.
Ngl this is kinda hilarious
Makes sense. I mean, a passenger of a cruise line isn’t called a sailor, right? Astronaut literally means “star sailor.”One of the conditions for someone to get their astronaut wings from the FAA is that they travel 50 miles (80 km) above Earth, and both Bezos and Branson have met it. But the FAA is now saying that would-be astronauts must also have “demonstrated activities during flight that were essential to public safety, or contributed to human space flight safety,” and neither meets this requirement. The change went into effect on July 20, the very day when Bezos made the inaugural 11-minute flight on the reusable rocket New Shepard.
things i am learning now that i’m finally actually watching avatar the last air bender part one:
1) not everyone is a bender
2) it does appear to be inherent to some extent, because katara seems to be partially self-taught
3) however, there is a learning element, because you can improve on your skills and the avatar has to learn how to master all four elements where i thought aang just had inherent skill
4) the element of the bender seems to always match the element of the tribe they’re in, which makes sense if they are taught by their tribe but raises some questions if it’s inherent. is bending ability passed genetically? what happens if two benders of different elements have a kid? i can’t google this because i don’t want anymore spoilers than i already have
5) uncle iroh is prince zuko’s uncle?????????? i thought he was like an earth bender who owned a tea shop this entire fucking time how did i go into this series knowing almost everything but THAT
i honestly thought it was an honorary title like he’s a nice old man who helps out all the kids so he just has them call him uncle

Every DnD game that starts out with a serious “Lord of the Rings” type of tone turns into a Monty Python sketch and every DnD game that starts out like a Monty Python sketch turns into Lord of the Rings
DnD game with characters named Kua the Brave, Enoch Bluehelm, and Hallow Greaves: Our current mission is to save the kingdom from the Dark Queen Ravenbone but we fucked up a charisma roll and now Kua and Ravenbone are dating and the king of Fendale was turned into a frog
DnD game with characters named Bunny Wabbit, Ford Trukk, and Dildo Baggins: Our current mission is to find a birthday present for a spoiled prince but in the process we found a lich planning to devour the life force of everyone in the land and Dildo gave his life to stop him in a scene so moving it won the Newberry Medal
If you give your players room to do whatever they want, including be silly, they will most often choose to express themselves. And you’d be amazed how much you’ll start to care about characters once people have attached little pieces if their soul to them.
If you try to enforce a “serious” tone, it just makes the gags funnier, and your players will treat you with the same casual blasphemy orangutans show to God.
“the same casual blasphemy orangutans show to God” WHAT THE FUCK I’M DECEASED
why is it so difficult for ppl to distinguish between “this person is a literal bigot and should not have a platform” and “this person is not actively malicious but has accidentally done a couple harmful things that should be addressed” and “this person has made a few poor taste jokes several years ago but has since grown as a person” and “this person simply just didn’t know the ‘proper’ term for something”
fuck it adding on what i said in the tags
so i just finished watching the extended editions of the trilogy which is nearly 13 hrs long and this meme is correct somehow. this is the only line legolas speaks to frodo in the entire series. the only other debatable line is a scene in fellowship where legolas is speaking to gimli but frodo just happens to be near them and he’s cut to for a reaction shot. i wouldn’t really count it though since it wasnt directed at him.
someone already posted this but the kicker is at the end of return of the king where frodo sees the fellowship again and calls out to everyone by name except for legolas lmaooo
why is this so funny to me?!
