In my parents I had the perfect combination—a resistant father and an encouraging mother. My mother convinced me I could do anything. And my father said, “Prove it.” He didn’t think I could make a living. Resistance produces muscularity. And it was the perfect combination because I could use my mother’s belief to overcome my father’s resistance. My father was a kind of a metaphor for the world, because if you can’t overcome a father’s resistance you’re never going to be able to overcome the world’s resistance. It’s much better than having completely supportive parents or completely resistant parents.

Q:What do you think of the canon g-series? :)
I like that series! :) We used to have a G-10 that I’d use a lot. I find it a bit heavier than most P&S cameras, though. But that’s a good one and I liked using it a lot.
Q:Hi! Which of your cameras (not film) do you bring for everyday use?
Hey. :) If I want a reliable camera for clear shots, etc. I bring my Nikon D5100. It’s a pretty light model. If I want a SUPER light one and just need SOMETHING to document with that’s not an iPhone, I bring my Canon S100, which I like but not love. Hope that helps!
Abandoned: Mark Twain Branch Detroit Public Library by Brandon P. Davis
no, no, stop and listen to me a moment, listen to what i am saying; rescue mission
an entire effing library!? dude. somebody should rescue it!
This is both beautiful and depressing.
Q:Nothingspaces is so so so pretty! Did you code it yourself? Ang ganda teh! *u*
Thank you, but nope! Haha I was sitting on my old layout for the longest time and couldn’t really get into coding it since I had work stuff to prioritize so I ended up just buying it. :)
I tweaked it very minimally, as in I added a line of code for the “tagline” after the title, but other than that, it’s not mine!
The book that emerged from a bog after 1200 years
This is the remarkable story of a medieval book that spent 1200 years in the mud. Around 800 someone had a Book of Psalms made, a portable copy fitted with a leather satchel. The book consisted of sixty sheets of parchment that were carefully filled with handwritten words. Somehow the book ended up in a remote bog at Faddan More in north Tipperary, close to the town of Birr. Dropped, perhaps, by the owner? Was he walking and reading at the same time? Did he himself also end up in the bog?
Fast-forward to 2006. Eddie Fogarty, the operator of a turf digger, noticed an object with faint lettering in the bucket of his machine (pic 1). There it was again, our Book of Psalms! At this point it resembled something from an Aliens movie (pic 2), but that changed quickly after it went to the restoration lab. Thanks to the conservation properties of turf, many pages were still intact, as was its leather satchel (pic 3), the only surviving specimen from this early period. Remarkably, among the damaged pages were some that had let go of the words: kept together merely by ink, the words were floating around by themselves - like some sort of medieval Scrabble (pic 4). It’s the most remarkable bookish survival story I know.
More on this phenomenal find in this news article and this one. Here is the bog and the machine that dug up the book More on the restoration process here. More about the papyrus found in the binding here. This is a nice movie on the book.
“Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.”
So, they were hitting Voldemort in the face.
There are records that you just sink into. They coincide with what you’re going through and become an ally. If our records do that for people, that’s the greatest compliment I could ever receive. That’s one of the reasons making music is so important to me, because there’s a very strange emotional reach.
