Occasionally, I write original stuff and post it here. More commonly, this is where I store pictures of art, museum exhibits, film stills, and other stuff I find interesting.

sunshower on Flickr.Yesterday, I happened to glance outside, and I saw a a gigantic swarm of insects flying in the sunset light. I’m not sure what they were, but it made everything look magical (including Josh).

Yes, “the mirror” is a laserdisc.

I miss my laserdisc player. I used to bust out my parents’ old one from time to time at my old house in Austin, and everyone would freak out at the GIGANTIC CD OMG.

The passer of this remarkable object is unknown, but it is nonetheless a highly evocative specimen of unprecedented size, presented in four sections, each with a heavy black marble custom base, an eye-watering 40 inches in length overall.

That is one fancy poop

Meet two of the tiniest avian members of the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders, a Green-crowned Brilliant hummingbird (Heliodoxa jacula) (top) and a Green Violetear hummingbird (Colibri thalassinus) (bottom). These stunning macro photos provide an remarkably close look at two incredibly small and fast-moving birds - both covered in the itty-bittiest feathers you’ll ever see. They were taken by photographer Chris Morgan in Costa Rica at the Bosque de Paz biological reserve in 2011.

"The hummingbirds were so tempting to photograph to the point of madness! Eventually with patience you get quite close, and I love seeing the details of these little guys," says Morgan.

Head over to Chris Morgan’s Flickr page to check out more of his wonderful photos, including an entire album of beautiful bird photos.

Oh god, it burns.

It’s not a heart it’s like a horrific swollen rashy thing of grossness and it hurts so much.
But we can all heart each other. We can all share this burden. We can suffer through to together.

Just chiming in to say I love Bodyglide.

Even not-so-chubby girls (like me) get the chub rub. I use Gold Bond Friction Defense. Works like a charm!
