My daughter has prepared this charming birthday present for me.

Yes. It’s a small coffin. I would expect nothing less from the child who once left this little gem

laying around for me to find when I was cleaning.

38 minutes until my birthday. Or death. I’m not sure what’s inside the little birthday coffin.

I AM SO GLAD YOU WERE BORN!

Charles II spent a good deal of money on a good deal of pointless things, whilst his people were starving; one of these was a mock-planetarium where the alignment of the planets formed the shape of a phallus. One night, Rochester, returning to the palace extremely drunk after an evening of debauchery in the King’s gardens, stops dead at the sight, considers it for a long minute, and then, upon finding the visual joke, demands of it in a shout, “WHAT, DOST THOU STAND THERE TO FUCK TIME?!???”

my lecturer dropped in this anecdote in the Rochester lecture this morning i wAS LAUGHING SO HARD (via thepurposeofplaying)

So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…


Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.


Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:  Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).  Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).  Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).  Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).  Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).  Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).  Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).  Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).  Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).  Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).  Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).  You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.

To expand on this, Jesus’s name is Anglicized in this way as well. We get Jesus from the Latin form of the Greek “Ἰησοῦς”(Iēsous), which is derived from the Herbrew “ישוע”(Yeshu’a, which meant “YHWH is Salvaion”, YHWH, or Yahweh being the name of God). When another form of that name, ” יְהוֹשֻׁעַ”(Yeoshu’a) was allowed to Anglicize through a different set of corruptions, it entered the English Language through Reformist Protestants as the name “Joshua”.Yes. Jesus’s actual name is Joshua.

Celebrity fandom hasn’t changed changed much in the past century or so. We’re attracted (when we’re attracted) by that tantalizing tension between performance and reality - the role…

This is a great summary of some of the most interesting ideas about contemporary fandom. Love.

Have you heard of the sooty owl? They are frightening and their eyes are probably hell portals. asked by Anonymous

moniquill:

iguanamouth:

i DID actually while i was looking up owls a while back oh MAN they have incredible faces, like some kinda confused ghost who ended up in a bird and now just has to live with it

image

looks like they come in lesser and greater sooty flavors, and theyre both pretty similar except for their sizes (about 43 cm for the greater, 37 for the lesser)

image

theyre like someone took a barn owl and just lowered the brightness, threw some speckles in there, made their eyes a direct portal to the infinite nightmarish abyss, called it a day

image

the YOUNG SOOTY OWLS on the other hand dont even look like real animals. they look like someone made a dodo out of felt and accidentally left it in a dryer. owls are great

I’ve done a few! I like them because they are great for practice, and they make you feel good because it feels good to be art.
