New Order - The Perfect Kiss (1985)
Violence continues to erupt in Ferguson, Mo., more than a week after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown by policeman Darren Wilson. The 18-year-old’s family demands justice be brought to their son with the arrest of the six-year veteran officer. Protesters have clashed with authorities as control over security shifted from local police to St. Louis County officers to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Gov. Jay Nixon has since called in the Missouri National Guard. And the Brown family continues to prepare for the teenager’s funeral arrangements amid completion of three separate autopsies.

there’s a DINOSAUR IN YOUR KITCHEN
Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)
Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.

got back from the gym after not going for a few weeks and my strength actually didn’t go down that much! I was still able to do the same amount of weight and only a few less reps. I also tried out a new cardio machine and it was really fun! It feels great to get back into the swing of gymin it after such business/exhaustion from business. I’m also going back to class next week for the first time in like 3 weeks which I’m super excited about (I’ve been practicing in the meantime but it’s just not the same outside of the studio, y’know?).
So yeah that’s where I am right now! I was nervous I was back to square one (it was a few weeks but it felt like forever) but I’m not so far from where I left off that I can’t get back there soon. I just have to keep setting goal poses and doing the work needed to get there :3

We have a patch of woods next to the apartment and I like to pretend we live near the woods sometimes

I love this tiny little thing. I would like to own a reproduction of it. It makes me laugh… a lot.
X-Ray Image of a Winghead SharK
The distinctive form of a winghead shark (Eusphyra blochii) is revealed by an X-ray image. The Winghead Shark, one of about ten species of hammerhead sharks, has its eyes set at the tips of its wide, T-shaped head, giving it superb binocular vision.
