This blog is for me and the things that I enjoy. This includes MLP, Dr Who, Harley Quinn, Delicious foods, art in general, Harry Potter (especially Snape), Mythology, Amanda Palmer and Skrillex, funny or interesting observations about life and the human condition, and pointless laughs, among other cool things.
I am 20 years old, female and Australian. I am a University student, Cosplayer, Moderator on Famiworld (Minecraft server), and am currently unemployed-but-looking.
I love beautiful old things of a very particular type. I collect masks, fans, playing cards, corsets, books and other various trinkets. I like to sew, cook, laugh, dream, create, draw, sing, paint, photograph and write. I like spending time in the presence of loved ones, but sometimes I need space to lose myself in books, music or art.
I didn’t really understand military uniforms until these pictures.

Why does music box music make me so sad? Everytime I hear some I start to tear up and apart, why do I melt at something so pure?
Because purity and sadness are a very poignant combination. Also, this is why I love you :3

1. one’s good genius; the good part of one’s conscience.
2. a benevolent spirit as opposed to a cacodemon.
3. a good spirit/demon that was worshipped by the ancient Egyptians. He had the shape of a serpent with a human head. The flying serpents or dragons venerated by ancient peoples were also called Agathodemons, or good genies.(an evil demon).

PHILOSOPHY POSTERS: BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING WORDS
These posters do just that, capturing some of the wisdom written by the great philosophers that have gone before us, those who explored the far boundaries of human understanding and wisdom. The bold, black and white typography against a newsprint like halftone, is just the right look for such truthful statements strongly said.
The series of posters was created by Max Temkin, a designer and print maker from Chicago, Illinois. He was inspired to create the set after a retiring teacher gave him a poster containing an enlightening message from Friedrich Nietzsche… but one that was designed in a fashion far less inspiring than the quote itself. Looking to create something more fitting of the wise words these thinkers gave us, he recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds and sell the beautiful hand silk-screened posters at a bargain price of $20 a pop… and has had a huge amount of interest. In fact, he’s sold 1362 prints to date. It’s almost as inspiring a story as the quotes he’s sharing. To get your hands on one of these prints and their deep messages, head to Max’s site: Maxistentialism.
