Endling is a word for an individual animal that is the last of its species or subspecies.

1912 - 2012

This is the saddest thing I have reblogged in a long time. The very existence of that word is just a quietly heartbreaking thought that remains lingering in my mind long after reading about it.

Living on the shore of Lake Ontario, just east of Toronto, photographer Matt Molloy has daily encounters with brilliant sunsets and cloudscapes that he’s been taking photographs of for over three years. One day he began experimenting with time-lapse sequences by taking hundreds of images as the sun set and the clouds moved through the sky. Molloy then digitally stacked the numerous photos to reveal shifts in color and shape reminiscent of painterly brush strokes that smeared the sky. You can learn more about his “timestack” technique over at Digital Photo Magazine and prints are available here.













The Game of Life.

oh my god

what an interesting way to look at things.

lifes a gamble

and death always wins

because death has nothing to lose


Or maybe because Death’s a cheating whore look at that fuck hiding cards under his bony ass


Hands down, one of my favorite pieces ever.

You can’t cheat death.. But that doesn’t mean death can’t cheat you

Profound…..  The last statement in the thread catches the artists’ intentions brilliantly.  I saw that too….

I’m so nervous about this W.E form thing.  It’s eating me alive.  I really need this to go my way.

The past year was so tough on me mentally and physically, and when I look back at it now, I realize I wasn’t in the right mindset for school.   I should have taken a semester or two off approached school again afterwards.   I know what I want to do someday, and I’ve had my life measured out in little sugar spoons ever since before I was old enough to know what a “career” was, and when I looked ahead of me back in October 2013, I didn’t see the challenging-but-rewarding uphill battle I always used to see… I saw a monstrous, terrifying series of failures ahead of me.

School was always easy for me, but school in the past year has stressed me out so much, my stomach drops to the pavement when I think about it.  It’s not that I couldn’t do the schoolwork… It’s that I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to do or accomplish anything, so all of my “potential” and all the expectations that came with being told I’m “gifted” my whole life felt wasted.   And I hate that I spent my first year being so useless.   I took the past almost 4 months off of school to bring myself back to life, and I’ve made friends with the silence and the feeling of being “alone”, and I feel like I’m on my way back up.  There’s some fucking massive, scary dragons to slay in the next couple years, including the MCAT Exam, and I’m going to need me to be the guy I would’ve looked up to back when I was a kid.

But, first, I need this form to go my way.  Please.




White flags appear atop Brooklyn Bridge

Someone has replaced two American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge with mysterious white flags. The white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered Tuesday from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan.

One of the flags, viewed via video, appeared to have faint traces of stars and stripes on it. Police say it isn’t clear what time they were placed there — or by whom. Several officers scaled the bridge and were seen lowering the flag on the Manhattan side around 11 a.m. as traffic inched along the bridge.

The bridge is one of the most heavily secured landmarks in the city, constantly monitored by surveillance cameras. The city’s Department of Transportation is referring all queries to the New York Police Department. (AP)
