Elsa, 20, California, in fifty words or less: Devout atheist. Angry feminist. Apterous. Actual praying mantis. Socially liberal. Borderline existentialist. Pretentious fuckwad. Terrible poet. Awkward loser. Life goal: the final frontier. In a passionate love-hate relationship with the world.


we have awoken to ash deserts,
to skeletons picked clean by the wind.
this is a dead place now.
there is nothing to do but run.
washing the blood from our hands only makes mud.
we wish it was clay, wish we were gods,
wish we could cough life from our lungs
instead of dust
we will choke on it
the ravens are circling
they are broken glass and death
and will peck at us until we turn into shadows
we can not let them
we have a king who wears red like armor,
whose crown was not forged with blood.
we have a siren, a soldier, a shell
we will rise from your ash, rub it into our wrists
we are saving a space where your heart used to be
we will fight in your name
we are running to you, love
and we don’t know where

to the fallen — l.b. (via scottinpanties)

Talk dirty to me

Apollo 10 audio transcript 


So in English class we had to draw a scene from The Great Gatsby. After the drawings were done the teacher was showing them to the class, and one drawing was a pic of Gatsby reaching towards at the green light, but in the drawing Gatsby didn’t have hands. So my teacher starts saying something like how this picture has hidden meaning and portrays the helplessness Gatsby feels, and the kid next to me just casually says “I can’t draw hands.”

The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

Women are so perfect.
