when an awful person shows their true colors to friends of yours who liked them and you’re kind of like oh no i’m so sorry you had to experience that but at the same time you’re like FUCKING FINALLY
au meme → they’re a bit schmoopy during the start of their relationship. (what? of course four months is still the start.)
Right now Tumblr has over 93,200,000 blogs, and only 148 staffers.
Let’s raise a toast to those 148 people who have to deal with our shit everyday.
A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.
Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.
A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.
A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.
The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.
In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.
Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.
This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?
One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:
If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing? By: Josh Nonnenmoc.
One of the reasons why I have resentment for the modern system.
Money is prioritized above beauty. The material and the physical is more valued then the spiritual and mental enlightenment.
Money above fulfilment of the soul, sex above care, and image above individuality seems to be the top order of nowadays society.
When I told you I raised you from perdition,
It did not translate.
You did not believe.
I did not expect you to.ii.
But I did raise you from perdition,
And your soul was ash and dust.
It was also savagely broken.
It was also beautiful.iii.

i just thought this needed to be pointed out to the tumblr community.
these are all photoshopped by enrico francis
it needs to stop.
Dear Enrico Francis Photoshop extrordinare,
STOP FUCKIN PHOTOSHOPPING BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AND MANIPULATING THEIR BODIES AND FACES INTO UNNATURAL BARBIE LOOK-A-LIKES.
1. youre not very good at it. the manipulations you make are so fucking freakish that all i have to do is glance at your photos and know that its not real.
2. the natural beauty of these women is so profound that the fact that you feel the need to photoshop them is fucking INSANE.
3. we do not need another fucking shit putting these unrealistic expectations of women (and men, cause you shop them too) into the world. its not right. you know its not, i know its not and tumblr knows.
So Enrico, I beg you please give it a rest. be a good fucking human being and stop. learn to be a true artist and enhance the beauty youre working with as opposed to completely warping it.
and if you dont i will continue to publish your shitty photoshop all over this fucking website.
This is disgusting.
FOR ONCE SOMEONE INCLUDED WOMEN OF COLOR.Thank God. Its good for people to see how this is done to women in the industry. sickening, but true.
