I know in less than a day my days are going to be filled with organic compounds & brain processes. I know I’m going to stay up late frantically flipping through pages to memorize unreasonable amounts of data in a short amount of time. I know I’ll wake up early in the morning, barely able to lift up my eyelids. I’ll yearn to go back to bed. It’ll be unbearably cold outside and even the thickest of all my scarves won’t stop the wind from seeping in and numbing my face. I’ll try and catch 20 more minutes of pure, sweet unconsciousness in an uncomfortable position in a crowded bus.
But when I’m walking to class, I’ll be right here back to this day, where I met my boyfriend in the late afternoon heat for a casual date. We walked through his neighborhood and got into an argument 10 minutes in about something utterly ridiculous, only to make up with kisses and “I’m sorry.” I’ll think about how he makes fun of the way my nose is small and flat, but how he’ll kiss it anyway. I’ll think about the earnest look in his eyes, when he thinks I’m mad or how he mimics my high-pitched voice when I’m whining. He pulls me into his chest when we have a 45 minute train ride ahead of us. It’s been a roller coaster ride that I don’t want to get off.
Cabinet of Monstrosities by Hajime Emoto. They are supposed to represent the 7 deadly sins.
These were all made from paper and bamboo. Here is his website, although it’s in Japanese. (Website)
I forgot the best one
Mother Died is another short horror film I recommend. You might think you know what’s going on, but you don’t until the very end.
I recommend not scrolling through the comments because that will ruin it for you.
I watched this just two days ago and it confused the hell out of me, until the very end which tied it up beautifully.
THE LITTLE MERMAID
This isn’t happy-go-lucky disney mermaid you are probably familiar with. This little mermaid isn’t too happy with her “prince.” This short horror film contains violent material and gore.
Do you guys think we could ever live in a world without any crime? In high school, I had this discussion with my sociology teacher, and one theory was no, we can’t. Even if we had a world without murder, rape, and all that, the definition of crime itself would change in the hypothetical community. So perhaps something like dropping plates will have as much penalty as murder. And by this theory, a Utopian community can never exist.
