You're so post-modern.

I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier.

A brief snapshot into my personality, featuring things that make me want to laugh/think/live.

Say hi on twitter!

No media about the fact that there’s a All Male,  African American High school on the southside of chicago who year after year has a 100% graduating senior class who ALL get accepted to 4 year universities/colleges.

they just want to talk about how whether a person’s death on the southside is gang related or not.

WHAT

This is ridiculously impressive.

I’m just looking up sources, and the statistics are really incredible.

This is a great achievement and SHOULD be mainstream news!

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

I hate that the two are talked about as oppositional things.  Science and art are bros, to the point where the debate still rages about which preceded the other.  We don’t fight, we’re not enemies, we need each other.  Ask an artist what they focus on, anatomy, light, color, depth.  Do you know what that really is?  Biology, theories of visual perception, and physics.  The number of artistic movements that were literally started because of a new scientific discovery is staggering.  Hell, to gain legitimacy, early photographers did their utmost to appear to be artists, because they knew otherwise, photography would just be viewed as an illegitimate gimmick.

I cannot tell you how much I despise this idea that science and art are at oppositional ends of the spectrum.  You can not have art without the tools made by science (stylus, paper, ink, paint, video, anything), and you cannot have science without the explanations granted by art (written word, illustrations, diagrams, charts, anatomical models, medical comics).  I literally once had someone tell me a video game could never be art because it involved science…well guess what, so did DaVinci’s works, so did the Impressionists, so did every artist ever.  Even when you break it down to pure, raw abstraction, composition is simply math.

Science is art, art is science.  Stop acting like one is pure intellect and the other pure emotion.  Its an absurd binary, and frankly, it does not really exist.

Just stumbled upon this tweet from February: Neil calling out Mental Floss for lightening his skin.

Jfc.

Pathetic, Mental Floss. “Artsy” isn’t an excuse when you are fundamentally changing how a person looks. I’m so disappointed.

Holy Library! Quebec church transformed into a house for books

Originally built in 1964 by architect Jean-Marie Roy this church in Quebec has been masterfully transformed into a library by Dan Hanganu & Côté Leahy Cardas Architects.

The library has been named after Monique Corriveau a local writer who wrote ten children’s books, one for each of her kids!

AHHHH!!! I WANT TO VISIT!!

What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.
