Hello! This is a general purpose sort of blog, where I deal with anything that happens to catch my attention. This will usually include cartoons, science, technology, politics, music and art of any sort, and writing-based things. I'm an incredibly curious person with very strong opinions on a lot of things.
If you would like to see my artwork, I will have a tumblr for that up as soon as I get around to finishing it. For right now, if you want to see my main projects, "#La Luna on Gaia"
is the main tag I'll be using for them.
My alias is Amasis and I do not have a preferred set of pronouns. If this bothers you and you absolutely need my input to be okay with the world, you can just use my name and the singular 'they'. Otherwise, call me anything but late for dinner.
In June of 2009, a rare total solar eclipse blanketed certain portions of the planet in total darkness. Czech photographer Miloslav Druckmüller traveled to the middle of the Pacific ocean to the Marshall Islands to capture the incredible event.
To create the photos above, he compiled over 40 images shot from two different cameras.
So I hear faint music/voices outside. It’s 3am. The dog is nervous about something and keeps whuffing and moving around. And the clock just chimed three and about scared me out of my skin. And the dog is still all antsy about something. *turns off all the lights and lowers brightness on monitor* >__>a
"The government is cutting music programmes in schools and slashing Arts grants as gleefully as a morbidly American kid in Baskin Robbins. So if only to stick it to the man, isn’t it worth fighting back in some small way? So write your damn book. Learn a Chopin prelude, get all Jackson Pollock with the kids, spend a few hours writing a Haiku. Do it because it counts even without the fanfare, the money, the fame… ."
The first scientist says ‘I’ll have a glass of H2O”
The second scientist says ‘I’ll have a glass of water too. Wh… why did you say H2O? Like, I know it’s the chemical formula for water and all, but it’s the end of the day and there’s really no need to intentionally over-complicate things like that in a situation outside of work”
The first scientist stares at his drink, angry that his assassination plan has failed.
So I’m sitting here, waiting for the dog to come back in so that I can go to bed, and I hear a loud, weird sound outside somewhere that sounds like a cross between a groan and a shout. I am too drowsy for my imagination not to take that and run with it to places I need it to not be going right before I try to sleep. Dog hurry up and tap on the door jesus christ I want to turn the lights out
